                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hey, I could get used to this chair.  It's soft, all the brains I can eat, and
plenty of time to read those lovely Harry Potter slash novels.  Wait... What an I
SAYING?!?!  Please... graduate me soon.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in DULLENS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with SAM ADAMS?  He 
actually beat HARRY POTTER AND THE's NEW AMUSEMENT PARK, and walked away with 13 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at DULLENS while they watched CRANKY OLD COOT 
clobber ANVIL.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  SCOURGE was reminded on the sands why ZOMBIE PARENT is Duelmaster.  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
DULLENS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
