                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Rotten style match for you, Kurohana, but I liked it.

                                      Chauncy

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to WILLAF once again!  Hmmmph!  I always thought POWER LEGION was 
an over-rated team and they proved it with a 1-2-0!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, YAMABUSHI's 3rd 
moved them up to 4-0-0 place.  What's with BOILINGBROKE?  He actually beat NOBLE ON 
FIRE's IN MY BENZ, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Laughs were 
big at JLG while they watched 400S clobber DOUGLAS.  He lost 9 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure WILLAF is excited about AMYTHEST, the 
new Duelmaster from MAXIMUM RESULTS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
WILLAF thinks POWER LEGION and their 66-56-3 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at GOLDEN GLADIATORS couldn't face the challenges from 
POWER LEGION!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, DOUGLAS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     Warriors of WILLAF unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  WILLAF is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

In My Benz -- I think you got all wet!? -- On Golden Pond

Grizz -- I had to try, but you were simply too good and valuable.  Salute. -- 24
Carat

Woolfureana -- Wow!  You are the real thing! -- Heart Of Gold (Hating to think that
maybe simply Heart is not?)

Yamabushi -- Welcome back!  We will not make any rude comments today like calling you
Yamamama or the like.  No we will not. -- The Golden Gladiators (actually quite glad
to see Yamabushi back)

Chauncy -- More salutes! -- Midas

Budokumo -- Heck, I never did care for slow-dancing, not really. -- Penny Lope
P.S.  I'm thinking we may have subtly new sentences.  Interesting.

Taikutsu -- (sigh)  What she said.  She's my cousin and I don't like her, but
sometimes she's right. -- Penny Lopez

Por Q. Pine -- Is this some kind of special deal today?  Everybody gets long fights
except Chauncy, who has the perfect long-fight answer which the rest of us don't.  I
can't say I'm thrilled.  Well, okay, obviously I COULD say it, but I don't want to.
-- Kildilli Dall
P.S.  But the skills are good.  Thanks.

Oh, cheese, the Fratsfa Slave.  How exciting. -- Dunroe Minh

Our congratulations to Amethyst. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals

Anythest -- Thanks for the parry lessons.  Congratulations on graduation. -- Beaufort

All -- I can not believe I got the invite!  Persistence does pay off.  Bye. --
Anythest

To the Twins -- Penny Lope and Lopez sorry for trashing your easy wins but a 5 wl and
9 cn warrior just doesn't last--until I figure it out better. -- Coyote, mgr. Maximum
Results

Midas -- That enough personals for you? -- Coyote, mgr. Maximum  Results

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.

success in those endeavors.
