                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm back.  I've been baptised, had communion, been confirmed, and am not called
Confession for nothing.  Remember that when you challenge me.

     I thought I would take some time to list some of my favorite things in this
arena.

                 Confession

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TELORINTHE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  BAD SIGNS?  Who?  
OLDIES is the top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for MORWEL, who pummelled 
LOTUS-EATER, to pocket 24 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 21 points to MORWEL.  (Discrete enough, LOTUS-EATER?) 
Well, Duelmaster CONFESSION challenged ZEITGEIST's PARALDOXIA.  Is a 21-4-1 good 
enough?  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by PARALDOXIA, of 
ZEITGEIST, who despite a 11-14-0 couldn't overcome TELORINTHE's Number 1.  Word has 
it one team in TELORINTHE is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to 
death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of ZEITGEIST should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, DEATH'S CHOSEN scurried away from ZEITGEIST.  Oh, the shame!  
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and PARALDOXIA is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't ZEITGEIST proud!  GOSSIPID found herself challenged by a 
warrior 20 below:  RIZZYN.  RIZZYN of DEATH'S CHOSEN kept his wits as he was defeated 
by GOSSIPID.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see BAD SIGNS 
retaliate against ACRONYMS in bloodfeud!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TELORINTHE is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid TELORINTHE farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

learn from his example -- Steal Home

Ghost of WYSIWYG -- By all means, you can enter warriors into the Dead tourney, but
if they come back, you are not allowed to fight them here (well, actually, you are
allowed to by the agreement was any warrior with tourney FE would be sent to the Dark
