                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yes, well, M1a1, I think I might say "tanks for the title."  Then again, I'm not
sure it's a good thing to have.  I feel like a target up here.

                                       Howard

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JHELUM once again!  Biff!  Pow!  JHELUM watched with glee as THE 
WALL got knocked off top spot by TANKS FOR NOTHIN'!  What's with M1A1?  He actually 
beat THE WALL's J.A. PINKERTON, and walked away with 25 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at F BALLS while they watched FOOS BALL clobber THE JUDGE.  He lost 
12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure JHELUM is 
excited about FOOT BALL, the new Duelmaster from F BALLS.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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, THE WALL!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at TANKS FOR NOTHIN' 
ain't reelin'!  THE WALL's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, J.A. PINKERTON!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  I like to see warriors put young whippersnappers in their 
place.  I guess you could say TANKS FOR NOTHIN''M1A1 did just that.  Right THE WALL?  
Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take 
note!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Merkava -- Go ahead, laugh.  See if I care.  The Alps will chill your amusement fast
enough. -- Hannibal

The Prostitute -- (recoiling)  I am NOT yours!  In so far as I am any woman's, it
would probably be Lysistrata, and I'd rather not think about her just now. --
Leonidas

Embezzling Scribe?  Is that what he is?  I thought he was some sort of scrawny
chicken.  Tastes like chicken, anyway. -- Pete Mastiff, chewing reflectively

Persistent Beggar, good.  An easy introduction.  This is all trickier than I thought
it'd be.  Getting used to a new size, a new style, a new...life.  Tricky. -- Challost

EmWun -- Do you want mountain duty?  We may soon be conducting...let us call them
"training maneuvers" at the south end of the Daggerspines.  If you can keep up with
the elephants on the way, you can try the rest. -- Hannibal

Leopard -- Of course, child.  One who ceases to study and learn begins to die at that
moment. -- Harlok of Gwent, Master of Kung-Fu

Panther -- Well, I wasn't TRYING to assassinate you!  It's a different art entirely.
-- Trilibo of Sibikhas, Assassin Third Class
