                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Mmmmm beer.  Yummy, yummy beer.  Chimay, you might have had to much before you
fought me.  No other way to explain it.  I'll take a lucky win when I can get it.
Looks like we will rematch if my turn gets there on time.

          Tempe Postmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KOLACT once again!  Hmmmph!  I always thought MMM BEER was an 
over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-1-0!  What's with ADALBJORN?  He actually 
beat TERRAPIN STATION's THE QUESTION, and walked away with 24 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at VIKINGS while they watched ADALBJORN clobber THE QUESTION. 
It lost 32 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  VALITA was 
reminded on the sands why TEMPE POSTMASTER is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was MEDAL OF HONOR.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at THE MENTORS ain't 
reelin'!  MEDAL OF HONOR's mad!  Maybe THE CHOSEN ONES' FLAIN is one of those guys 
who likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 
31 to HANS SMA KRIGER.  As I expected, HANS SMA KRIGER won FLAIN.  Not to start 
anything, but, FLAIN, now that you've faced him and seen his style, you might try it 
again!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  BISHOP, with his forgettable 11-8-0,  was killed by 
ADALBRANDR in a forgettable match.  TERRAPIN STATION didn't seem to mind very much.  
The ultimate victory is one that results in death.  ADALBRANDR of knows this.  Will 
TERRAPIN STATION attempt a Bloodfeud?  Someone told STAN SMITH that EMPIRE never 
Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right 
sorry.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

                                 JASPER GULCH:  DM 85

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
