                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That, I did not expect, Mr. Tibbs.

                                    Geroge Igono

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  SLAMMA JAMMA posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a 
winner...  Practice pays for AFTERSHOCK, who pummelled KHALHUMS DWARF, to pocket 23 
points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, MISTER TIBBS was winsome, after 
beating ORIANA PINDAR and seeing her lose 2 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, 
KYR'TERR's Duelmaster GEROGE IGONO found himself the man of the hour, being "invited 
to dance" 2 times!  The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as HOT SPOT 
faced KYR'TERR's Duelmaster.  GEROGE IGONO successfully staved off a grab for the 
roses by HOT SPOT of DARK AS DAY.  Does KYR'TERR have no one talented enough to 
dethrone him?  Word has it one team in KYR'TERR is taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of THE ZOO should take up 
some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of SLAMMA JAMMA, so did that sorry team shy from THE ZOO  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Perhaps KYR'TERR were 
the only ones left untouched by HIT ME demise.  Can anyone ever take hers place?  Or 
do I exaggerate?  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid KYR'TERR farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Okay, for a start, something to say, we can salute the tourney participants, quickly,
before the next tourney comes around.  Way to go, guys.  Although, in truth, you
could have gone better if the luck had been on your side.  Life's like that, some
days. -- the Zoo

Terrablood -- Okay, fine.  I fight a managed gladiator and lose.  At least it was a
real fight.  But in five minutes, surely I could have LEARNED more? -- Ginsi Iagell

Somehow, a victory over the Khalhums Dwarf would've been more satisfying if he'd
actually BEEN a dwarf. -- Panama Oats

Aftershock -- Ah, rats.  That kind of thing is so annoying! -- Oriana Pindar

Sugar Hill Gang -- I hadn't expected to be dealing with a whole gang here.  But
that's dwarves for you. -- Ernie Guul
