                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That's the way it goes, Bradley.  No general wins *every* battle.

                                    Zebd Arvin

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ALJAFIR once again!  What's with HANNABLE?  He actually beat 
MIDDLE WAY's BELLONA CHIST, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at THE GENERALS while they watched HANNABLE clobber BELLONA CHIST.  
She lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he 
might, VETERAN MERCENARY wasn't good enough at persuading ZEBD ARVIN to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.  The 
most avoided team was DEAD POETS.  The bums at BASH BROS. DMV couldn't face the 
challenges from DEAD POETS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in KAIREEN 
LAMAR?  Hers 6-1-0?  MIDDLE WAY ain't talkin', but she's got 33 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

Hannable -- Obviously, Zebd was onto something with that "no general wins every
battle."  Works for me! -- Alida Bern

Brunhilda -- Hmm, perhaps this is our "defeat the Generals" day? -- Bellona Chist

And standbys, also.  We actually went five-oh today!  That's amazing. -- Senlum Nosh
and Kaireen Lamar

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
