                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Buried Treasure again!  It's a good thing I don't want a Christmas card from
him.  I just want to take him shopping.

                                   Mralissa Loon

P.S.  Actually, five skills was treasure enough for me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ERINIKA, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at BASH BROS SUITCASE left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by THE FLYING FISHES.  Good show!  
He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe BASH 
BROS SUITCASE.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 4!  Nothing works for a team like 
victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as THE FLYING FISHES can attest... 
THE FLYING FISHES had cause to celebrate, after MUD PUPPY got 26 points by beating 
TALITHA SEALE.  URSULA ZAROFF certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after 
losing to ORCA and losing 11 points in the process!  In ERINIKA, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, FRISBEE.  So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Do my ears deceive me?  ADAM (outclassed by 32 
points) challenged BURIED TREASURE, in what promises to be a fight.(!) The gods 
smiled upon ADAM, in his upset fight against BURIED TREASURE.  ADAM gets a win, 22 
points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?)  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Congratulations, MUD 
PUPPY.  The manager of MIDDLE WAY 18 should have sent TALITHA SEALE to the Dark Arena 
for having a 10-9-0 long ago.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself 
must needs be wasting!   
     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.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ERINIKA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
