                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I'm thankful to be alive, and undefeated, and on the throne.  I'm looking
forward to my 30th FE and my Champions run, if Ahringol should see fit to let me.
     Good luck to all of Lin Tirian in the upcoming tourney!

                                      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.  SHEWISH BUFFET had 
cause to celebrate, after NAKED LUNCH got 12 points by beating URIK DARKHEART.  
STEAMED MUSCLES certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to TIGER 
JONSALMIN and losing 9 points in the process!  CALEAM CHOWDER successfully staved off 
a grab for the roses by HAROUN SHADDAR of SAND DANCERS.  Does LIN TIRIAN have no one 
talented enough to dethrone him?  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.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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.  More 
important duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid 
LIN TIRIAN farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

You are thankful to be alive, Caleam Chowder?  I'm ecstatic.  What kind of manager
sends a perfectly good warrior to the Dark Arena, anyway?  If you keep this up, One
Armed Bandit, I'm going to start looking for another employer. -- Steamed Muscles

Caleam Chowder -- I've discovered that I have a shellfish allergy.  Don't fight me
anymore, okay? -- Haroun Shaddar

Mezquino Pollo -- Wow, food everywhere!  Too bad I came down with Montezuma's Revenge
right in the middle of that fight.  A fast surrender was my only dignified option. --
Urik Darkheart

Habanero -- You know how it goes, "Some like it hot."  That would be me. -- Sally
Sharpe

Naked Lunch -- Are you saying... something I was intending to eat disagreed with me?
Cheese louise. -- Tiger Jonsalmin

Why do we care about people who "desert" Mordant?  Who wouldn't, if they found
themselves there? -- Korylus Vrae
