                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well!  I consider Nick's behavior in denying me my column last cycle to be
reprehensible and totally Not Hoyle.  True, it was just the Khalhums Dwarf again, but 
still.
     Hmm, at least M. Chardinee makes a change.  It would appear that no one on our 
team has fought Chardinee in a year, because he isn't on the list.  Well, he's there 
now, with the notation:  a pushover, challenge freely.  Of course, he didn't teach a 
single thing worth knowing, but that's the Chardinees for you:  stingy.
     And now, at last, the Commission recognizes my worth.  I am to go to the Isle, 
although Nick insists that I won't fight there.  What does HE know, eh?  I am 13 11 
19 9 17 8 7 PS, with an expert in Parry (I am expert in many things, actually, but 
the Commission doesn't care about them).  I favor the Broadsword, or so the 
Commission says (what do THEY know?), and a rhythm of low/high.

                                     Not Hoyle

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to OSKSI once again!  What's with MUMBLEDY PEG?  She actually beat 
AESIR's HODUR, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big 
at GAMES LIBRARY while they watched MUMBLEDY PEG clobber HODUR.  He lost 19 points 
and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure OSKSI is excited about 
BUD SMITH, the new Duelmaster from BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES.  (remember?)  But when you've 
seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of OSKSI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Yeah, yeah, HEARTS 
killed EOLIS, who was "too young to die."  Well, he was a fighter, and that's what 
you have to face.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

Late personals:

I left Andoria to get AWAY from their cursed assassins.  And I would have killed this 
one, if the arenamaster hadn't been almost Andorian in his solicitude for the wretch. 
-- The Goalie

Beneico -- You sure you aren't selling something like, hmm, some technology thing.  
Lightning pigeons?  Your name just has a "selling technology" sound to it. -- Pencil 
Neck

Alfjar -- Oh, dear, is this like keeping Prince Albert in a can?  DO remember that it 
isn't NICE to keep elfs in jars, dear. -- Hearts

Kraki -- Cracked you, didn't I? -- Mumbledy Peg

Current personals:

Not Hoyle was right about M. Chardinee being easy, but wrong about his teaching 
ability.  He taught ME a skill.  So there. -- The Goalie

Gwennolas -- My sincere thanks for snapping that Pencil's Neck.  The replacement 
can't be worse. -- Nick

It's true that the Userous Merchant was rather RUDE, but I feel sure there is an 
explanation.  Not that it EXCUSES rudeness to have an explanation, but still.  It 
must be a terrible life, fighting in the arena during the day and pursuing usery at 
night. -- Hearts

Hodur -- How could you learn all that AND win?  I think that calls for a personal 
from you.  Get it in gear there, boy. -- Mumbledy Peg

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
