                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Immortality, Retirement, and Lands.  Sounds good to me.  If it was up to me, I'd
retire now while I'm still ahead, but Assur says I must face the Dark Arena.  I'd
rather pass, but I don't get my release until after this turn.  Hopefully I can win
and don't have to undergo a resurrection, but some of those monsters are mean.

The commission ranks me:
12-13(1)-4-15-21-7-13 PR, Great/Norm
Faves: LO/MO SS, learns Init
Skills going into this turn: 16/24/23/25/17/9

Apparently, I am a distant relative of the famous Whirl
claims it is true, I have no reason to doubt him.  Assur trained me as a PR, though,
because he still needed a PR grad when I was born.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TALCAMA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  TALCAMA 
watched with glee as NEXT GENERATION got knocked off top spot by HEAVYMETAL KIDS!  
Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  
I ramble.  Well HEAVYMETAL KIDS moved up 1, to 1st.  What's with MERCURY?  She 
actually beat CENTER FOR OLDS' LIPSTICK, and walked away with 22 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at SHEPHERDS while they watched MOSES clobber RED ALERT.  He 
lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's BANDIT PRINCESS?  That sort of 
initiative is how he got where he is now.  Try as she might, BANDIT PRINCESS wasn't 
good enough at persuading AARON to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, CONSORTIUM CREW!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SHEPHERDS ain't reelin'!  CONSORTIUM 
CREW's mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if AARON 
can return from the Dark Arena.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
