                             Notes from the arena champ.

Assuming I'm victorious once again, I plan on taking two cycles off to meditate and
prepare myself for the upcoming Grand Tournament.  Perhaps I'll even get in a little
fly fishing with my brother-at-arms.

King Tootnpootn, it was a valiant effort but it was not your time.  From the sound of
your name, you'd be more comfortable on a porcelain throne, anyway.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SUNSET once again!  Hmmmph!  I always thought BEN'S BAZAAR was 
an over-rated team and they proved it with a 2-3-0!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  
Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  SWORD OPERA is now 
ranked 3rd with a 4-1-0 turn.  LITERATE LOONS showed SUNSET what they were made of as 
they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with WEASEL?  He 
actually beat LITERATE LOONS' MILLHAUSER, and walked away with 20 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at THE RED BLADES.  LENI POOLE lost 8 points to ZOLDIVAR.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LENI POOLE will provide more easy wins...  
GRANDADDY SMURF was reminded on the sands why FATHOM JUMPER 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.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
GREDAN.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at OMINOUS REIGN ain't reelin'!  
GREDAN's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
WALLACE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  BLAKSUNN expects 
the easy win by going 19 points down.  SILVER SMURFER will find this a hard lesson!  
Just who can BLAKSUNN beat?  I mean, the last matchup with lesser-ranked SILVER 
SMURFER shoulda been a piece of cake!  I hate going to the effort of writing about 
the kind of fights that WALLACE gets in.  He fights people like FAMINE, 12 points 
below.  I thought WALLACE showed great skill and promise when he defeated FAMINE.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of SUNSET unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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?  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

You can't get rid of me so easily. -- Ironsides

Fathom Jumper -- Hmmm.., well that worked about as well as using a vacuum to clean up
the beaches. -- King Tootnpootn

Wallace -- This time it one of us who avoided to no avail, good win. -- Grandaddy
Smurf

Graven Ward -- I think you forgot the first half of your style. -- Silver Smurfer

Billie the Axe -- Pays to be a sponge! -- Big Kevin

OAB -- It will not hurt our feelings if you decide to sit out your 2 sadly under
trained Strikers at the top.  I have been taking it easy on you for the sake of your
record and just wanting to be nice.  We would be more than happy to hold on to the
throne while you sit them out.  We might even be willing to let you have it back in
an easy fight that we, of course, would throw with out it looking like we were
throwing it. -- Gentleben

     Funny you should bring this up....

DM Fathom Jumper -- Congrats on another win, and, OH looky, a column!  Sort of.
While our manager recognizes that not everyone can be as dynamic, prolific, and
entertaining (read: braggy and long-winded) as he is when his warriors pen a column,
he thinks a warrior sitting the throne of this storied arena should put forth at
least a bit more effort if at all possible.  May your grad notice come early for the
holidays! -- Grim Fandango 
P.S.  Enjoy all the free fights!

King Tootnpootn -- Did you see me in the stands with my popcorn for that one??  Haw
haw! -- Still avoiding, Wallace

GD Smurf -- You're not nearly so tough as your big brother. -- Wallace

Morbid Crusader -- Damn, thought that one was in the bag... -- Mersilus

Yuedebahl Litha -- Just what in the name of the Gods does that thing you call a name
mean?  Nice fight, too. -- Blaksunn

Pillow -- Youch, I'm gonna go cry myself to sleep tonight in mine! -- Rezurekt,
comforting his wounded inner child

Big K -- Whoa, that was a fun fight!!  Almost had you, maybe next time if we're both
still alive! -- Billie the Axe

Ben -- Condolences on the loss of Paws.  But, if you DA'd him earlier, how good could
he really be?? -- Stik

Darkness -- That sense of darkness as your eyes roll back in your head and you fall
over backwards--not exactly the darkness you had in mind, was it?  #5 felt good. --
Bul Goblinhewer

Fly Fisher -- Well, now that was predictable!  Blech! -- Battlecry

Disease -- Now that the Tribe is getting to know you Dark at Heart folks, we kinda
like yah.  That went very well. -- Sasquatch, who is not as dark at heart as his
reputation sometimes suggests.

What is with all the smurfs around here?  They certainly are Bizarre. -- Graven Ward

Team Slime is back!  Gotta love the slippery, sludgy, sticky gunk!

Traumatic Paws -- Ah, is that like the horrible moment when you're on-stage, everyone
turns toward you, and you can't remember your lines at ALL?  Scarrifying. -- Saralee
Jo
P.S.  Ah, damn, I didn't realize till I looked at the newsletter that I'd killed you.
And on your challenge, too.  Bummer.  Super traumatic, and an ominous pause.  Your
teammates will find me available.

Adiran -- I've seen slimier things or people, I think--possibly in the bathtub after
certain teammates have been there, but we won't go into those details here. -- Selia
Dove

Deranged Deckhand -- Do you suppose it's the tension from being simultaneous a Sea
Dog and an Aruaki Werecat that is deranging you? -- Jonisson
P.S.  You could teach better.  I wouldn't mind.

Pynchon -- Ha!  I have had some success throwing old boots at cats that yowl in the
night, and I figured it wouldn't hurt to try it on a howling loon.  It worked. --
Lamon Rosard

Jolly Green Giant -- Ho ho ho, rabbits in the garden! -- Kerbestam

Angel -- Have you met my cousin, Lito? -- Leni

Blacksunn -- Nice defense.  I'll try that one again some time on my challenge. --
Yuedebahl

Weasel -- I clearly know nothing about either of our styles.  I thought that would be
a good matchup. -- Terra

Borges -- How embarassing!  I forgot some equipment.  Bill will never let me hear the
end of it. -- C. Crow

Convicted Thief -- And let that be a lesson to you... -- Lito Sky

     They never learn.
