                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I couldn't let the Venomous Concubine take the title!  Unthinkable!  Even if she
did win.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, JAGUAR WARRIORS.  But how many friends do you have now?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS 
showed ZUWAYZA what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off 
with 3-0-1.  What's with SUE SHE?  She actually beat ZUWAYZA's AMBITIOUS GUARD, and 
walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  CONVICTED ASSASSIN was reminded on 
the sands why ELLE is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  SPORTS III of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS got 12 points 
for removing another young punk.  Tough luck, FUNKY FOLK!  Many a warrior has met his 
fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Flowers!  Who would have thought the Veteran Mercenary would offer me roses on the
eve of my departure?  Can it be that I have missed a chance of congenial
companionship here? -- White Wolf, considering not departing just yet

The Captured Orc is pathetic.  He doesn't even have any teeth left. -- (Plain
Wrapper)

Mango -- My teammates tell me I should be HONORED to have the only "managed" warrior.
Well, I'm NOT.  THEY won their fights, but did I get a chance to win?  No, I had to
have a "good fight."  Bah. -- Sports Ill
