                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well all the wood we chip was fun.  Well we can't sit around too long.  See you
at the heaven.  I was a 11-13-12-15-17-9-11 with an Epee.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of LIN TIRIAN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  KUNG-FU MASTER 
found out that LIN TIRIAN isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are LIN TIRIAN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Everyone is 
famous for fifteen minutes, and IRLON is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  
Isn't SAND DANCERS proud!  APPLE-TREE challenged IRLON!  Who says TREE PEOPLE are 
just a bunch of wimps!  APPLE-TREE of TREE PEOPLE kept hers wits as she defeated 
IRLON.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in LIN TIRIAN would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid LIN TIRIAN farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Strike One -- And I did.  And striking ONE was so good, I struck two and three, as
well, and THEY were good, too. -- Irlon
P.S.  Although how I ended up with this weapon is a mystery to me.  Not that I'm
complaining!

Cork Tree -- Somehow, I would never have guessed you for an oak. -- Jigger Kree
P.S.  Oaks are, so far as I know, the only trees that produce cork.

Sniper Wolf -- If that isn't JUST like an orc! -- Telorgan

Pba -- What, you hope we got a new Shew?  Gee, thanks. -- Sand Dancers

Lady Protector Chip-Wood -- Congratulations, and, um, could we offer you a sub-let on
a nice houseboat? -- Arenamistress Migonelle

Jigger Krie -- Thanks for the thought.  I will look into it. -- Bashes

Jigger Krie -- I can see the heat from there apple tree.

Sand Dancers -- Sorry to read that.  I hope you will be a team in 78 for a long time.
