                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Shank, I didn't want to take the title on a loss, even to an outgoing Lord
Protector, but... if taking the title, any way at all, is why I'm graduating, I'll
take it and be glad.  Thanks, I guess.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome MALCORN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  SERPENTS' HOLD were 
a bunch of dogs after GREENWARDENS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with SLEEPY HOUSE?  He actually beat MALCORN's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked 
away with 16 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at GREENWARDENS.  SUNDOG lost 
16 points to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SUNDOG will 
provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, KUNG-FU MASTER wasn't good enough at 
persuading HONEYSUCKLE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of MALCORN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  
MALCORN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
