                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It was a good try, Running Deer, and I'm not sure why you lost.  Well, I do know
specifically, it was a mighty blow and a devastating attack.  Still, I hadn't
expected to defeat you a second time.  You should have been ready for me.
     And I should be graduating, dammit!

                                    Pete Mastiff

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JHELUM since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  It seems so recently 
people were saying KIWI CONNECTION was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-1 moved them up 
0.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with CASSIS?  She actually beat DOGS OF 
WAR's RED HAMMER, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Laughs were 
big at KIWI CONNECTION while they watched CASSIS clobber RED HAMMER.  He lost 17 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  BRAVE 2 was reminded on 
the sands why PETE MASTIFF is Duelmaster.  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
