                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Again I burn the 4 Bridges behind me.  At this rate, I'm going to have some
serious enemies among the bridge-building classes.  Not something I view with total
equanimity, but then I'm a gladiator.  I don't view ANYTHING with total equanimity,
because it might be sneaking up on me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome NIANIA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SASHINDA?  She 
actually beat NIANIA's VETERAN MERCENARY, and walked away with 15 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at THE GOLDEN FISH while they watched HAROLUE clobber 
TORTONI.  He lost 3 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try 
as he might, INSURANCE SALESMAN wasn't good enough at persuading LARSEN E to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of NIANIA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
NIANIA is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Hand of Hell -- I considered cutting it off, as you might be quite an unexceptionable
person otherwise, but then I thought, "No, what if he's chose to be this hell-handed
person?  Who am I to make the decision for him?"  So I just bashed you around a 
little, in a gladiatorial way, and let it go at that. -- Sashinda, feeling tolerant
today

Iron Gypsy -- Cool id number you've got there.  Really unlucky matchup for you, also.
I thought gypsies knew all about crossing the palm with silver, in this case the palm
belonging to the handicapper who sets up the random matches.  I grant you the guy

wears a mask like he's trying to hide something (such as his identity), but I'm sure
a gypsy could figure out who he is sooner or later.  You might want to look into
this. -- Koronedus

Tortoni -- Well, darn!  I looked for someone so sweet to be a female of some
persuasion.  Bummer that you're not, because there is NO WAY I am asking a guy to go
dancing with me.  Assuming I can still dance after this encounter. -- Harolue

Vendetta -- Well, heck.  If I'd had a desperation strategy, I could employ it all the
time, but I didn't and I already do.  Drat.  And I was doing so well at the end of
the first minute, too.  I guess it's time to work on the old wind sprints. --
Gillande, who does not want to do wind sprints

Hand of God -- Wow. -- Sashinda

Seef Haraine -- Ask me if I care. -- Larsen E

Spiritual Pain -- This will not let you off the interest you owe me. -- Sedmon Var,
Merchant and Moneylender
