                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, the Veteran Mercenary.  Almost, I will miss him.  I did not, however, miss
him today, even once!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ERINIKA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
R U DMB, who pummelled AMBITIOUS GUARD, to pocket 18 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 10 points to LOLZIE.  
(Discrete enough, CRANKY?) In ERINIKA, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we 
find ourselves a new Duelmaster, MRS. POTATOE HEAD.  So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  ERINIKA, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Welcome Wench.  'Til 
next time-- Novgorodny Vir
