                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well met, Kati-Tei!

     It's a pleasure being your Duelmaster!  On pure talent alone, I know I should be
here.  But Stormy had been holding me back with my strategy.  Now that he let me have
free rein to fight like I want, I just want to say everyone beware!  I won't be
taking any prisoners, and I won't be showing any mercy.  So whoever wants to
challenge the little offensive TP, go right ahead cuz I'll be head hunting, and
loving every minute of it!  If no challengers approach, my challenges go out to
Cobblestone and Hustler's Ambition!  If it isn't a death match, it wasn't because I
wasn't trying!  Later!

     Welcome OSKSI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  OSKSI watched 
with glee as GENERATION X got knocked off top spot by STATE OF MIND!  It seems so 
recently people were saying AESIR was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-1 moved them up 
0.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with SON OF DAGON?  He actually beat 
GAMES LIBRARY's SALDORINIVAN KIRO, and walked away with 24 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at DREAMS OF KADATH while they watched OF ALHAZRED clobber 
EXISTANCE MUNDANE.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  STL RAD's hatred of GENERATION X surfaced again as COBBLESTONE challenged 
OSKSI's top dog.  Try as he might, COBBLESTONE wasn't good enough at persuading MEGA 
PIXEL 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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, GENERATION X!  The bums at DREAMS OF KADATH couldn't face the challenges 
from GENERATION X!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, COBBLESTONE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
OSKSI is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Wow!  I don't know what got into Mega Pixel, but, boy, is she angry!!!  I'll try to
calm her down before next turn, but I have no gaurantees!  My only advice is to hold
your shields up high! -- Storm Lord

Ghost of Koridinsvon Tarv -- I guess I might of been rubbing off on Mega!  She's kind
of blood thirsty lately! -- Hype Machine

Hustlers's Ambition -- Guys like you, they break your legs in Vegas!  I'll remember
that for next time. -- Road Trippin

Skoll -- We should grab a drink... and maybe play some video games after our fight!
-- Atari King

Road Trippin -- No more skills from me. -- Ghost of Daeromenzian Val

Funny Farm Fiend -- Huh, you'd think we could have taught each other more.  But at
least we survived. -- Falrondial Voth
P.S.  Of COURSE I rejoice in my own survival.  I can't do anything about my dead
teammates, they're going to stay dead.  Well, I regret their passing, of course.  But
I've got to look out for myself now.

Hype Machine -- That was, damn, it was an accident, wasn't it?  Our mutual
inexperience and all that. -- disgruntled Ghost of Koridinsvon Tarv

Gnocchi -- And quite tasty, too.  I found something yesterday that claimed to be a
gnocchi stuffed with pork "and other good things," and I was SOOOO tempted.  But I
did not do more than look at it wistfully. -- Saldorinivan Kiro

Loabal Domination -- Good gods, man, did they put you on a DIET?  What nonsense!
You're getting skinny, and that makes you weak. -- Darirokan Kor

Existence Mundane -- That was incredibly embarrassing. -- Ghost of Existence Mundane

All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
