                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, if I had to fight a standby for the title, at least it wasn't Helvan, who
was cutting quite a swath among my teammates.

                                  Maran ten Palan

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DAL SHANG.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  SAND DANCERS had 
cause to celebrate, after KURLO TEN DOSHAN got 11 points by beating LENDO TEN 
CHARDIN.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 11 points to XYLOID.  (Discrete enough, LORAND TEN SORN?) MALDI STONEBREAKER 
found out that DAL SHANG isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in DAL SHANG is using psychics to predict 
wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of THE 
INQUISITION should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The 
warriors of THE INQUISITION found their efforts at combat frustrated as BASH BROS 
EVANGELIST apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous 
for fifteen minutes, and IRONIC TWIST is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  
Isn't THE MOTHERSHIP CE proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not despair!  I 
shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Floyd -- You probably did me a favor, let's just hope I can capitalize on it and get
my Rolls Royce driving Evangelist a couple wins out of it. -- Assur

Lindis -- Apparently my nice shiny vehicle doesn't impress you.  And thanks for the
advice.  I had it serviced this week! -- Driving a Rolls

Jinx -- I've lost funding and therefore must leave the sands and head home. --
KnockingOnYourDoor

Well, heck!  Other expletives as required.  That Helvan Quickhand is a sun of a
bustard, no two ways about it. -- Kurlo ten Doshan and Lorand ten Sorn

Driving a Rolls -- Disconcerting when bits and pieces fall off, isn't it?  I think it
must be the salt put on the streets in winter to keep the ice under control.  It
really eats away the underparts of a carriage. -- Lindis Tyl Sarro

The Blue Pill -- Eh?  So many pills are blue, how do I know which one to be wary of?
