                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings to the citizens of Tobir!

Apparently we are not big fight fans around here, judging by the numbers of teams 
fighting in the arena and the amount of spectators who turned up for last week's 
fights!  Those who did show up got to see two tremendous fights -- the two that were 
not against stand-ins.

The first involved me vs. Granmeyer for the throne.  Since I'm writing this we know 
who came out on top, but what you may have missed was the actual fight!  He was all 
OVER me in minute 1, but my armor absorbed enough damage allowing me to continue, and 
his fatigue allowed me to gain and maintain the offensive until he finally gave in.  
Note to self:  attack less with the shield and more with the weapon....

The other fight involved my stablemate PG Murray, who sported a 4-0 record entering 
the duel with Mamma Mia who was at 3-0-2.  We definitely like them small here in 
Tobir.  In these two fights the average height of the warriors was 5'2".  PG Murray 
towered at 5'5" over Mamma Mia, but the same thing that helped me hindered my comrade:  
platemail armor.  He was able to land 5 blows, but not enough to seal the deal and so 
takes his first loss.  Congrats to Mamma on her 4-0-2 start!

That's it for this turn.  Looks like it will be a rematch next turn unless Granmeyer 
doesn't fight.  Good luck to any of you who fought in the recent tourney -- I did 
not... (sigh)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TOBIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with PG MURRAY?  He actually 
beat THE DEATH SQUAD's HULK SMASH, and walked away with 22 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at THE DEATH SQUAD.  HULK SMASH lost 12 points to PG MURRAY.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HULK SMASH will provide more easy wins...  TOBIR 
has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He challenged WRATHMEN!'s 
GRANMEYER (12-6-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  I'm sure TOBIR is 
excited about GRANMEYER, the new Duelmaster from WRATHMEN!.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  What do people see in 
GRANMEYER?  His 12-6-0?  WRATHMEN! ain't talkin', but he's got 115 points.   
     Warriors of TOBIR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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
