                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Again with Joey!  I was going to kill him, I'm tired of him, but the
arenamistress--a real wet blanket, that one!--told me they wouldn't invite me to the
Isle if I did that.  What nonsense!  Well, probably nonsense.  After all, Jorja had
multiple kills when SHE was invited.

                                    Shillis Vair

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for THE COUNT, who pummelled LIQUID SNAKE, to pocket 21 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 19 points to THE COUNT.  (Discrete enough, LIQUID SNAKE?) SHILLIS VAIR 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by MATT of J.  Does LIN TIRIAN have no 
one talented enough to dethrone her?  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for LIN TIRIAN?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Shillis -- True, I had multiple kills when I got my invitation, but it was a bum rap.
Besides, the one who would intercept your invitation in the case of another kill is
ME.  I don't consider you at all a safe person to have around if you can't control
that bloodlust. -- Jorja

I never killed anyone who didn't deserve it! -- Shillis Vair

Until you can resurrect those who deserve it, too, that isn't enough.  Unbalanced. --
Jorja

Cj -- Bah. -- Harnie Black
P.S.  But thanks for the skills.

Sjs -- I snigger at you. -- Black Tom
P.S.  And if you've never been sniggered at by a half-orc, you've got a real
experience ahead of you.

The Count -- I hate counting.  It makes me dizzy. -- Delna Berin

Osalat Revolver -- Another victory for the Ducks! -- Kurtal Duck
