                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Khalhums Dwarf.  Somehow, it doesn't seem like a worthy fight to decide the
title.

                                     Bitterman

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZUKAL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  BLUE MOON were a bunch of 
dogs after HOT STUFF got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Phhbltt!  Too 
much drinking and too little dodging gave GUARDIAN KNIGHTS a 0-2-0!  I got a good 
laugh out of it!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I 
think I'm gonna be...  Well, ASSASSINS GUILD's 3rd moved them up to 1-1-0 place.  
What's with OGRE BATTLE?  He actually beat GUARDIAN KNIGHTS' FALCON KNIGHT, and 
walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ASSASSINS GUILD 
while they watched BRADLY GORE clobber JED TARRAN DAPP.  He lost 11 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure ZUKAL is excited about 
G-STRING, the new Duelmaster from HOT STUFF.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as 
many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear 
some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
BLUE MOON.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at HOT STUFF ain't reelin'!  BLUE 
MOON's mad!  What do people see in JED TARRAN DAPP?  His 3-4-0?  BLUE MOON ain't 
talkin', but he's got 13 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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
