                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I see that a Mouse (not given as one where race is indicated!  Hiding, I
see!) cannot party and fight at the same time.  It is often thus.  Two entirely
different skill sets are used, after all.

                                     Ingold Kerr

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KALTOS 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 SPORTS GREATS was washed up, finished.  But 4-0-1 moved them up 1. 
I guess they're washed no more...  What's with SAMANTHA FOX?  She actually beat THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5's CHESTER EGG, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at PARTY ANIMALS while they watched MOUSE DAVIS clobber GLORIA IMBRO. 
She lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for OF WOLF AND MEN 4's outstanding member, Duelmaster ICE FOX. 
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...  KALTOS thinks PARTY 
ANIMALS and their 146-117-10 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
The bums at SPORTS GREATS couldn't face the challenges from PARTY ANIMALS!  No excuse 
for that!  What do people see in FERGUS HILL?  His 3-3-0?  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 ain't 
talkin', but he's got 12 points.  Maybe PARTY ANIMALS' BEATLE BAILEY is one of those 
guys who likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after 
challenging up 33 to HOFFA.  BEATLE BAILEY did pretty good last week in beating HOFFA 
to get 8 points.  Why did HOFFA lose, you ask?  Simple:  he wasn't good enough.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  CHESTER EGG of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 didn't know when to quit.  
When you've got a 16-21-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  How long have I been 
here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

P.S.  Try not to hold it in the middle of the fight next time, though.  I forgot my
