                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The arena steward thought to depose me with a Convicted Assassin?  I laugh!  Now
they have a Convicted Frog.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZUWAYZA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with DRAGON?  He 
actually beat MONOPOLY's MR MONEY BAGS, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at MONOPOLY.  MR MONEY BAGS lost 9 points to DRAGON.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MR MONEY BAGS will provide more easy wins...  KUNG-FU 
MASTER was reminded on the sands why MAGIC TODAY is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, GAIDINS!  The 
bums at MOM'S STUFF couldn't face the challenges from GAIDINS!  No excuse for that!  
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, WATER WORKS!  Don't 
make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
