                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Surely, now, after twenty other columns, there is little I can say without
repeating.  I do not know why I am still here; I guess The Commission has a mandated
50 fights in store for me.  (sigh)  I am getting a little old and tired, but I will
still hear your confessions regularly.  I like the gossip!
     Only five teams in this special "Throwback Arena"?  Bring on the NPCs.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in TELORINTHE, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--BAD SIGNS.  BAD SIGNS had cause to 
celebrate, after STEAL HOME got 18 points by beating QUITA REMMING.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, STEAL HOME was winsome, after beating QUITA REMMING and 
seeing her lose 12 points.  Well, Duelmaster CONFESSION challenged MIDDLE WAY 21's 
ORRIE POLLAS.  Is a 40-4-1 good enough?  CONFESSION successfully staved off a grab 
for the roses by ORRIE POLLAS of MIDDLE WAY 21.  Does TELORINTHE have no one talented 
enough to dethrone it?  Word has it one team in TELORINTHE is taking speech lessons 
to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in TELORINTHE avoid ZEITGEIST.  As a woman of good breeding scorns 
the "warriors" of BAD SIGNS, so did that sorry team shy from ZEITGEIST Everyone is 
famous for fifteen minutes, and WESTERN AUTO is it right now.  Most challenged 
warrior.  Isn't OLDIES proud!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything compare to the 
pleasure of writing Spyreports for TELORINTHE?  On that giddy note I take my leave--

Kellumbo's Inits -- Take THAT for killing my buddy Legion Field.  Attendance has not
been the same since the demise that you caused.  You cretin! -- Accordion (practicing
his bass chords)

Quita Remming -- My shields need some real blacksmithing, I'll say. -- Confession

Construction Zone -- Thanks for the challenge.  I needed the win.  And I liked all
the skill treats, especially the one starting with D, that you left in my box. --
Cracker Jacks

Orrie Pollas -- Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar.  All for Orrie, stand up and
holler! -- Pep Rally

Indiana Jones -- Wow!  You were way too much for me.  I don't like snakes either. --
Western Auto

Hey Oldies, well done.  A 4-1 ain't bad, but we're going for the championship, y'all
know?  Train harder! -- Coach

Yoda -- It bugs me when strange-looking little guys come around telling me what to
do, but I guess you had a right to that bloodfeud.  And to three more of 'em, if
that's what you want.  Life is tough, and death doesn't make it easier. -- Moris Nahr

Confession -- Hmm, when they, ah, neutered you, they seem to have cut off a lot of
the rest of you as well.  It's unusual to see a Shew at a mere five and a half feet.
-- Quita Remming
P.S.  And no way am I going to tell you secrets.

Vodi -- Have you guys got a lock on the end of the alphabet?  Not that I care one way
or the other, but I just happened to notice. -- Karin Lo

Pep Rally -- I've often thought that you super-peppy people should've been drowned at
birth.  But I suppose you kept jumping back out of the water. -- Orrie Pollas
P.S.  It exhausts me just to look at you.

Lump -- You certainly hand 'em out. -- Sam Tall

Confession -- It's widely "known" that the Commission discriminates against your
style. -- Orrie Pollas

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
