                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hairy Monster got crushed by Stone Golem, but at least he has a chance to fight
in ADM someday, whereas the commission just doomed me to permanent retirement by
announcing my favourite weapon is the War Flail.  It certainly takes something
special for that not to result in retirement, but not my 12(1)-17(1)-9-18(1)-16(1)-5-
11 numbers, nor my Master in Attack, AdEx Parry, or AdEx Init, and not even my +3
from mode base rating in Attack, let alone my LO/LO rhythm and tendency to learn
attack skills.
     Since this marks the end of my career, I figure I'd take the opportunity to sing
another number for you, but this one is more of an ode to my dueling career.

Oh yeah, I'll tell you something
   I think you'll maybe chuckle
   When I'll say that something
   I wanna hold your whiffle
   I wanna hold your whiffle
   I wanna hold your whiffle

Oh please, say to me
   You'll let me be your waste
   And please, say to me
   You'll let me hold your whiffle
   I'll let me hold your whiffle
   I wanna hold your whiffle

And when I smack you with my whiffle
   I feel happy inside
   It's such a feeling that my love
   I can't hide
   I can't hide
   I can't hide

Yeah, you've got that something
   I think you'll maybe chuckle
   When I'll say that something
   I wanna hold your whiffle
   I wanna hold your whiffle
   I wanna hold your whiffle

And when I bash you with my whiffle
   I feel happy inside
   It's such a feeling that my love
   I can't hide
   I can't hide
   I can't hide

Yeah, you've got that something
   I think you'll maybe chuckle
   When I'll feel that something
   I wanna hold your whiffle
   I wanna hold your whiffle
   I wanna hold your whiffle
   I wanna hold your whiffle

The Beatles
Open Sesame
4-time Duelmaster of Snowbound

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SNOWBOUND once again!  What's with JENNA KUUL?  She actually 
beat MESOPOTAMIA's BONESCRAPER, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at MESOPOTAMIA.  CRUSHING BELIAL lost 8 points to BERT & ERNIE.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CRUSHING BELIAL will provide more easy wins...  See 
how the Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's ICE TRAPPER?  That sort of 
initiative is how it got where it is now.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as ICE 
TRAPPER killed the Duelmaster, THE BEATLES, leaving OPEN SESAME in mourning.  So now 
GARUTH HOLM gets to be SNOWBOUND's Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
SNOWBOUND thinks MESOPOTAMIA and their 77-52-1 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at OPEN SESAME couldn't face the challenges from 
MESOPOTAMIA!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in TIAMAT'S DEMISE?  Hers 
18-9-0?  MESOPOTAMIA ain't talkin', but she's got 82 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the 
others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, OWN GOAL.  That's what a 7-4-1 gets you. 
Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
