                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, my old friend Morrus Reltikar, bearded non-Dwarf and Veteran Mercenary.  A
good man, but he should retire.  Heck, *I* should retire!  And I will if I get a
chance--not yet, I guess, I need three more wins.  Bummer, because that's probably at
least ten more fights....

                                    Zebd Arvin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ALJAFIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SENLUM NOSH?  He 
actually beat ALJAFIR's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and walked away with 11 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE GENERALS while they watched BRUNHILDA clobber 
BELLONA CHIST.  She lost 3 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  BRADLEY was reminded on the sands why ZEBD ARVIN is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it 
be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the 
uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
