                             Notes from the arena champ.

     For the love of the gods, can someone turn down the heat in here?!?

Steamed Muscles

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in LIN TIRIAN, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--SAND DANCERS.  SAND DANCERS had cause 
to celebrate, after SILVER SLIM got 16 points by beating KNUCKLE SANDWICH.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 13 points to 
SILVER SLIM.  (Discrete enough, KNUCKLE SANDWICH?) Now I can't insult URIK DARKHEART, 
as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I 
lay it on too thick) 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!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Charity is 
unknown in LIN TIRIAN, and rightly so.  SAND DANCERS exacted their revenge against 
SHEWISH BUFFET.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be 
wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LIN TIRIAN is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing 
Spyreports for LIN TIRIAN?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

and STRANGLE you. -- Urik Darkheart

Chili Pepper -- Not in my COFFEE!  Gods, that's hideous. -- Silver Slim

Rib Iaye -- I was really hungry, and there you were.  Not bad. -- Rock Hardman
P.S.  I brought a steak knife, which made the difference.
