                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Skittles?  I don't like "skittles."  They sound like some kind of cutesy cat
food.  And I'm pretty sure that I'm not REALLY a cat.

                                       Bobcat

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to MALCORN once again!  What's with SHANK?  It actually beat 
GREENWARDENS' SUNDOG, and walked away with 25 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at SERPENTS' HOLD while they watched SHANK clobber SUNDOG.  He lost 22 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, STEVE 
wasn't good enough at persuading BOBCAT to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
