                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So!  Finally the Commission recognizes my worth, and I shall graduate.  At last!
Of course, they always get things wrong.  When querried, I said that I liked to take
my time and enjoy life, smell the water lilies and so on, make sure I was doing
things correctly (we Ducks are stickers for correctness).  And they interpreted that
to mean I am "born to scum"!  Calumny.  Not only that, to scum while bashing with a
dagger.  They are fools.
     And so is the Convicted Assassin.  If he'd been a Convicted Duck Hunter, I might
have felt more strongly about him.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon LIN TIRIAN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SAND DANCERS had cause to celebrate, after 
SALLY SHARPE got 12 points by beating FRATSFA SLAVE.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 8 points to MEZQUINO POLLO.  
(Discrete enough, KYLADEUS?) M. CHARDINEE found out that LIN TIRIAN isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  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.   
     And how sociable are LIN TIRIAN's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     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
