                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Aragant, my good fellow, you have allowed your just pride to overwhelm your
judgment and training.  You should not have lost that fight, and well you know it.
What were you thinking?

                                      Epimonidas

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JHELUM!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  DOGS OF WAR showed JHELUM what they 
were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with 
HANNIBAL?  He actually beat THE SHALLOWSHIP's ARAGANT, and walked away with 24 more 
points from the fight.  Apparently JHELUM isn't filled with as many gutless wonders 
as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 3 challenges this turn!  THE SHALLOWSHIP's 
hatred of DOGS OF WAR surfaced again as GIMLET challenged JHELUM's top dog.  GIMLET 
was reminded on the sands why EPIMONIDAS is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  JHELUM thinks DEATH 
SQUAD and their 42-50-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In 
my day, no team with a 42-50-2 would scare me off!  What's the problem, TANKS FOR 
NOTHIN'?  RIPPIN of THE SHALLOWSHIP knows how to pick 'em.  She challenged M1A1 of 
TANKS FOR NOTHIN' who is up by 18.  Now was this a wise move?  RIPPIN perhaps got 
hers just desserts, seeing as she lost to M1A1 and ended up with 25 recognition 
points.   
     Warriors of JHELUM unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Desert of Truth -- Far be it from me to deny truth! -- Hannibal
P.S.  If I did so, Epimonidas would hit me on the head.  A stickler, Ep is.

Bad Trans Op -- I was given a message for you.  By a mysterious stranger, you know.
Well, it actually came into my hands from an urchin, but HE said he'd been given it
by a mysterious stranger, so it comes to the same thing.  It says:  "Flush the
transmission and change the oil."  This makes no sense to me, but I suppose it will
to you? -- Howard

Decapitator -- No, no, NO.  I hate it when my opponent beats me to the "veritable
wall of blades" bit.  They're fun to throw around but absolutely awful to run into.
Try not to do that again. -- Jimmy Custer
P.S.  At least, not to me.

Panther -- (sigh)  It's a pleasure to watch you move, lady.  I could watch for hours.
-- Challon
P.S.  If not distracted by being hit.

Gimlet -- Good work against that Assassin.  We have to keep the assassins humble (and
preferably dead), because they're parasites on civilization.  This is bad. --
Hannibal

M1A1 -- Well, you just had to go and fillet my soul.  And I thought all you overgrown
Swedish robots ate was herring.  Just watch out for that Gimlet, I think he has his
special "eye" on you.-- Ghost of Merry Haddock

Epimonidas -- What happened?  Just because I lost doesn't mean I shouldn't be
Duelmaster, does it? -- Aragant

     He's being selfish.
