                             Notes from the arena champ.

     From the top of Kolact, the "mattress" here.  I must have lulled you all to
sleep for ME to make it to the throne.  Why I'm so weak I can't even wield a hatchet
without resting in between strokes.  My 9-line fight last turn with Syd Tubular made
me so tired I think I'll just lay down now and take a week long nap.  See you all
next turn, if my alarm gets me up.  Come on, Z, I think we'd be a good match!

                                             Sir Da, sleeping it off

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KOLACT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  KOLACT 
watched with glee as SIR AGLIO got knocked off top spot by QUBIT!  SPRINGBORN showed 
KOLACT what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-1. 
What's with SYD TUBULAR?  He actually beat QUBIT's QAEDA, AL, and walked away with 24 
more points from the fight.  I'm sure KOLACT is excited about MELODY, the new 
Duelmaster from SPRINGBORN.  (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.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, ACTAON!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  I hate going to the effort of writing 
about the kind of fights that HOOKFANG gets in.  He fights people like ACTAON, 11 
points below.  I thought HOOKFANG showed great skill and promise when he was bested 
by ACTAON.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Watson -- Say, you're pretty good!  I really thought that on my challenge, I could
take you.  Nope.  I'll just have to lay off and let Syd have a shot at giving you
your record loss. -- Sir Broke Stroker

Moonday -- You've got the "blow" part down pat.  It's the "aimed" part you need
practice with.  I, on the other hand, could use some practice at learning skills. --
Sir Cophagus, trying to avoid my name-given fate

Treebeard -- I tried to come up with a clever, witty comment regarding our fight, but
you're too fast and didn't give me the time to think of one.  Thanks for the skills.
-- Quip

Falling Star -- Aptly named, first name anyway. -- Quo Vadis

Gatorette -- Now THAT was gruesome fight!  If you just hadn't checked your leather
straps when the bell rang, perhaps you wouldn't have gotten me so excited I went
ballistic.  I think I'm owed a bloodfeud for my exuberance, don't you agree? --
Quasimodo

Arenamaster Filiarid -- WHAT?  Too many hallucinogens?  You've lost it, if you ever
had it. -- Sir Realistic

Syd Tubular -- Come on now, you can make it to the top (now that I'm gone).  I'm
rooting for you, in a purely platonic way, of course. -- Sir Realistic, Lord
Protector

Estrella -- Keep it up:  I love it when you say my name. -- Sir Ender

Sir Da -- You stagger the imagination.  T'was criminal and creepy, dude.  But then I
did gopher O fer 2 ina tourney.  Talk about your imagination staggerers... bo-day-
cious... I walked away with an ad-master in attack. -- Syd Tubular

Sir Broke Stoker -- I'd call that work... as in what I'm obliged to do.  On the other
hand I could'a called it play, as in the work that is really a fighters own work...
is play, and not work a-tall. -- Melody

Quasimodo -- Welcome to the biz.  Words are only painted fire.  A look (such as you
give me) is the fire itself. -- Sadie

Sir Ender -- I wish YOU would.  (heavy sigh)  You got the win, you got the skills,
and then you LAUGHED.  That was insupportable. -- Estrella
P.S.  But Nick says I have to support it anyway.  Darn.

Hookfang -- Another gimmick that didn't work.  Rats.  I was hoping you'd try to bite
me and catch your crooked teeth in the rings of my armor, but you didn't. -- Actaon
P.S.  Good thing I wasn't a horse, or you'd have had me down in the first minute.
P.P.S.  Or maybe that would have been good, because I surely didn't LEARN anything,
not after you kicked me in the head, so I might as well have been spared all those
extra minutes.
P.P.P.S.  Oh, well.

Sir Cophagus -- But the engraving around your sides is well done.  Very evocative. --
Falling Star

Quo Vadis -- I KNEW you would be trouble, as soon as I saw that you are SINISTER.
Lefties are always trouble. -- Moonday

Quiescent -- Well named! -- Cynica

Melody -- Re: ripper numbers.  I heard Nick say that any set-up that would make a
good ripper would be better as a wall of steel. -- Actaon

Lord Protector Queda, Al of Qubit -- We presume that a simple cubit of land will be
satisfactory?  Yes, of course.  Well, we found a perfect one for you, on a, um, well,
on a rock off the eastern shore of the island.  You may see it any time the tide is
low. -- Arenamaster Filiaril

It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
