                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Tcha, Hype Machine.  Too much time talking, not enough time practicing.  And you
shouldn't have been smirking to the women in the stands while I was winding up to
osterize you.
     But my sincere thanks for five skills!

                                 Velovorinsal Nors

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome OSKSI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, AESIR.  But how many friends do you have now?  It seems so recently people 
were saying GENERATION X was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-0 moved them up 1.  I 
guess they're washed no more...  What's with MELONDARION NORIS?  He actually beat 
DREAMS OF KADATH's ULTHAR, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at DREAMS OF KADATH.  WATCH THE SEA lost 8 points to MERISANDARA TIRON.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe WATCH THE SEA will provide more easy wins...  Try as 
he might, OF ALHAZRED wasn't good enough at persuading VELOVORINSAL NORS to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!  
     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!  In my day, no team with a 253-218-21 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, AESIR?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, L.T. WALLBANGER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
SKADI of AESIR knows how to pick 'em.  She challenged HYPE MACHINE of GENERATION X 
who is up by 21.  Now was this a wise move?  SKADI perhaps got hers just desserts, 
seeing as she was overcame by HYPE MACHINE and ended up with 59 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Brunhilde -- I can only wish that I were a man, for by defeating you, I become would
become eligible for your hand.  Alas, but I'm just a vegetable, and one not well
loved. -- Arugula

especially in this weather. -- Velovorinsal Nors

Junkfood Junkie -- Nononono!  You have to eat GOOD food.  Meat and... uh, meat.
Sometimes a little salted fish, but mostly meat.  And bread. -- Melondarion Noris

Frequent Flayer -- I guess I was too busy making sure my skin was buttoned on tight
to pay attention to other hostile moves. -- Eldaristan Faro

Nancy -- I suppose I could say, "Your need was greater than mine."  But that implies
that I care, and I'm not sure I do.  Still, there it is. -- Merisandara Tiron

Algrim -- Too grim for me. -- Kandaresron Varn
