                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And I follow Ash to the Isle, or at least out of Cliffhome.  Don't know if the
Isle is in my future or not.  13-7-13-11(+1)-17-9-13.  At least, that's what I think
my numbers are.  I'm not all that great with numbers, and it's late, etc.  QS,
mod/mod.  I'd never have guessed the quarterstaff.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in CLIFFHOME since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with ENOCH?  He 
actually beat JINDA-BAN's MENDARLIN VORO, and walked away with 9 more points from the 
fight.  I'm sure CLIFFHOME is excited about UNFORTUNATE RAKE, the new Duelmaster from 
SOUL WARRIORS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it 
be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the 
uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

All you Soul Warriors -- It isn't like you or we have a lot of options as to
opponents, so, good fight! -- the refugees of Jinda Ban

Stillgard -- You mean like, "Come jump off a Cliff with us!"?  Or, "There are at
least a couple of stories in this partly-clothed city, come be part of one of them!"
This isn't the best day for it (due-Saturday would be best), but I think I could
manage to write some brief (about 500 words) episodelets involving active warriors
here, if said warriors could manage to write personals.  Not much of an enducement,
perhaps, but it's what is in my power to offer. -- Jorja

One-four, not one of our better days.  But no one died, so it wasn't one of our worse
ones, either. -- Voronsal Maur, for Jinda Ban
