                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Pretty much a case of "same old same old."  I thank Madame U-Tana for the
single miserly skill she taught me, and for the win.

                                     Kirssarina

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DAYLA KIV.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  CORPS had cause to 
celebrate, after RUBY TUESDAY got 11 points by beating LALVO OF THE PEN.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 9 points to 
MAKAR TEL SORIAN.  (Discrete enough, MOKO TEN ZORA?) KIRSSARINA successfully staved 
off a grab for the roses by PELIS THE OLD of DAYLA KIV.  Does DAYLA KIV have no one 
talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team in DAYLA KIV 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 ERRATA should take up 
some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of CORPS, so did that sorry team shy from ERRATA  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for DAYLA KIV?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
