                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ho!  The Khalhums Dwarf?  A worthless runt!  The day has not dawned when he
could defeat me!

                                     Not Hoyle

P.S.  Besides, he didn't get much chance, as I stepped on him before I realized he
was there.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of OSKSI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings 
always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, OF WOLF AND MAN 3's 5th 
moved them up to 1-1-0 place.  What's with URU?  He actually beat OSKSI's CONVICTED 
THIEF, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at OF 
WOLF AND MAN 3 while they watched BENEICO clobber PENCIL NECK.  It lost 5 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, KHALHUMS DWARF 
wasn't good enough at persuading NOT HOYLE to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  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.  The 
most avoided team was OF WOLF AND MAN 3.  The bums at MISTRESS 4 XMAS couldn't face 
the challenges from OF WOLF AND MAN 3!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the 
feeling of being the most challenged warrior, GWENNOLAS!  Don't make idle boasts, 
they may come back to haunt you.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that BLACK WIDOW gets in.  She fights people like GWENNOLAS, 12 points 
below.  I thought BLACK WIDOW showed great skill and promise when she beat GWENNOLAS. 
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Ah, the Venomous Concubine.  She's got a terrible temper, of course, but what moves!
That sinuous slither.... -- The Goalie

I felt quite SORRY for the Ambitious Guard.  The poor boy tries so HARD, and he never
gets anywhere.  I felt I had to do SOMETHING for him. -- Hearts

Black Widow -- They tell me I'm honored because I get a "real" opponent.  Why don't I
feel honored instead of just battered? -- Mumbledy Peg

Kraki -- You're so ugly, I just had to hit you. -- Pencil Neck

Amendment for "Fratsfa's Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
