                             Notes from the arena champ.

God is great.  Never down.
And we thank you for this crown.
     Soultaker (looking for a way to figure out how this happened)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for CHAMUSCAR, who pummelled 
ZELORAND, to pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, CHAMUSCAR 
was winsome, after beating ZELORAND and seeing him lose 15 points.  SOULTAKER 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by ULRA T'SSAR of SAND DANCERS.  Does 
JADE MOUNTAIN have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the team that's 
been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me. 
     And how sociable are JADE MOUNTAIN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of SAND DANCERS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of MANAGER MUSINGS, so did 
that sorry team shy from SAND DANCERS Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
SERNILLAN is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SAND DANCERS proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  I shall 
return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Ulra T'ssar -- This is good.  I want to make it three in a row! -- Soultaker

Sernillan -- Such as they say.  Such as they say. -- Darque

Shia Fury -- Not enough fury. -- Mannequin

"The audience falls silent as the dueling begins"?  Easy.  They were watching
handsome, debonair me. -- Mannequin

Soultaker -- I thank all gods who may be involved, obviously not Mantor who doesn't
seem to approve of dueling, for the fact that you are keeping a firm grip on the
title.  I don't want it.  Too conspicuous. -- Ulra t'Ssar

Darque -- And dangerous, too. -- Sernillan
P.S.  But not really tall.  Train your height.

Zagwe Banshee -- Yow!  What a voice.  Hideous. -- Zelorand

Chamuscar -- Ah, you know what they say, the taller they are, the easier it is to
slip in below their notice.  You might try giving a few of your inches to Darque. --
Jade Belle

Darque -- (drawing himself up in outrage)  I am no COOKIE at all! -- Sernillan

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
