                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Duelmistress!  What a thrill!  What a fine sound to the name--Duelmistress
Golden Girl.  This is a golden day!
     It took some great effort to gain this title again.  I have had five DM fights:
Challenged and beat 56th And Wabasha (AB)
Random and lost to Well Don (PS)
Challenged ad lost to Everbringer (SL)
Challenged and beat 56th And Wabasha (AB)
     And, this win and title gained me the additional title of Lord Protector.  I am
immortal!  With that honor, I shall tell you all about me:
14-7-1 in arena; 2 DM Titles; No tournaments
Born 12-9-9-14-17-12-11  bonused and hosed STriker
+4 Decise; bonused Ebdurance; hosed Damage
Born Good Endu/Normal Damage
Bumped to 13-9-9-15-17-12-11
Still good Endu/Normal Damage
Great skill learn rate = 2.58
Weapons:
6-29-5 SC
2-20-1 HA
1-4-0 BS
1-43-1 QS
1-19-0 SS
1-6-0 FI
0-6-0 DA
I think I might be a scimitar fave!
Master Decise, Adex Attack
Either a Decise or an Attack Learner
     Now you know everything and more than you wanted to know about me, the Golden
Girl.  I may just take on off for The Isle right now and leave it to Hori Bull and
56TH to fight it out for the throne.
     Good bye and good luck.  I will miss you all.
                     Golden Girl DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome WILLAF.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with GOLDEN FLASH?  
He actually beat PUNNY AMINALS' BLACK INDEKKER, and walked away with 11 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at BLOOD ON THE TRACKS while they watched 56TH AND 
WABASHA clobber HORI BULL.  He lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  What a role model for WILLAF's young 'uns!  GOLDEN GIRL becomes 
Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam 
for BLOOD ON THE TRACKS' outstanding member, Duelmaster 56TH AND WABASHA.  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.  WILLAF thinks AIMER'S INC 
and their 40-37-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, 
no team with a 40-37-2 would scare me off!  What's the problem, GOLDEN GLADIATORS?  
What do people see in THE HIEROPHANT?  His 6-0-0?  PANDORA'S CARDS ain't talkin', but 
he's got 62 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  
WILLAF 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
