                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That's right, I'm duelmaster.  What are you going to do about it?

                                      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.  Practice pays for 
RALTUMAN OMELETTE, who pummelled DELNA BERIN, to pocket 23 points.  DELNA BERIN 
certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to RALTUMAN OMELETTE 
and losing 15 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by TESLA SHARPE, of SAND DANCERS, who despite a 9-3-1 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.   
     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...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
LIN TIRIAN would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LIN TIRIAN is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  LIN TIRIAN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has 
agreed to foot my bill at The Lost Hope Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

This Week's Favorite

More snacks!  We want FOOD!  How about Shewish Meatballs? -- the hungry Sand Dancers
P.S.  Fratsfan Fettuccini?  Barikalan Beets?

Sjs -- I really don't like you. -- Black Tom

Cj -- And so should all dwarves be dealt with, unless they're good cooks and produce
spinach-and-feta croisants to get certain other people to shut up. -- Harnie Black

The Veteran Mercenary was pushy.  Just because I happen to be a small woman does NOT
mean that any tall man can come along and tell me what to do. -- Tesla Sharpe

Truly, these orcs are idiots to allow themselves to be captured.  Any Duck would know
better. -- Kurtal Duck

Raltuman Omelet -- What's so unbelievable about me "besting" you?  Anyone can b-eat
an omelet!  Even children and old people. -- Delna Berin
