                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, thanks, Danni!  A real fight for the title is kinsa cool.

                                  Halgar Snagtooth

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
SAND DANCERS can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays for HARNY BLACK, who 
pummelled LADONNA LYNCH, to pocket 18 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, HARNY BLACK was winsome, after beating LADONNA LYNCH and seeing her lose 6 
points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by DANNI ROGERS, of 
GIRLS X3, who despite a 7-5-0 couldn't overcome LIN TIRIAN's Number 1.  Word has it 
one team in LIN TIRIAN 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?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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
