                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, another turn at the top for me.  Level, you double-guessed me, and I
double-guessed you, so that either cancels each other out, or makes it a quadruple
guess.  Sunset, would you all mind losing to me again, so I can get outta here?  That
would put me on the isle, where I can romance Sheila Greywand... and if she don't
love me, I know her sister will! -- Red House

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SUNSET.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Who can explain it?  Not 
you, not me, not DEATH MOB 4's opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 
20th to 4th.  What's with SHIRLEY ISLAND?  She actually beat ALL JACKED UP II's FLAP 
JACK, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at CAJUN 
APOCALYPSE while they watched REDUVIUS clobber BATWAMBA.  He lost 15 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Another fighter (ROLISTON 13-6-1) 
challenged another Duelmaster (RED HOUSE 13-9-0).  Life goes on.  I'm sure SUNSET is 
excited about ROLISTON, the new Duelmaster from DEATH MOB 4.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting! 
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  SUNSET thinks NOMADIC TRIBE 
and their 422-316-20 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at DARK OVERLORDS ain't reelin'!  NOMADIC 
TRIBE's mad!  What do people see in GITCHIGOOMIE?  His 7-5-0?  NOMADIC TRIBE ain't 
talkin', but he's got 66 points.  FISH didn't quite know what to make of a challenge 
he received from THAR of DARK OVERLORDS, who is 21 points below him.  THAR perhaps 
got his just desserts, seeing as he was bested by FISH and ended up with 33 
recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the others they'd 
better shape up.  Tough beans, FADE TO BLAK.  That's what a 5-6-0 gets you.  Hmm...  
More surprises must remain in store for me, if AUNT TILLA-THE NUN can return from the 
Dark Arena.  SEGOVAX looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned BLOOD AND SAND 
is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 4-9-1?  So THE JOKER'S WILD 
sent RUBBER DUCKY to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  Plenty more fighters where RUBBER 
DUCKY came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, Spyreporters...  And this week the 
Duelmaster--whoops!  NOMADIC TRIBE has one week left to avenge KADOKA's death by 
excessive hits on the part of LEVEL OF MALEVOLENCE of DEVIATION.  Here's some advice: 
study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Aunt Tilla the Nun -- I hear you may not be coming back.  That's a real shame, I was
planning on making a "habit" of beating you silly! -- Fish

Cold Shot -- You knocked me down with a blow to the arm.  If I fall down after a hit
like that, I deserve to lose. -- Manute Jr.

Bix -- Just couldn't help myself, had to challenge.  I thought I could probably out
jump you, and it worked this time. -- Bulous

Flap Jack -- Wow, wasn't expecting that!  That last hit did me in.  Expect a
challenge sometime to see if it would work out differently next time! -- Dust

Heller -- That was a pretty exciting fight.  I thought once you took the initiative
from me you had it... somehow I managed to hang on. -- Questiona

Five letter B-word teams -- Things are looking up for you guys, I guess! -- Stik

Minions of Chaos -- Welcome (back?) to Sunset, Jewel of the Delarquan Federation!
You have some fights under your belt, yet a very new team number.  Transferred in?
In any case, looking forward to crossing blades with you! -- Stik and Grim Fandango

DM Red House -- A column, if you would care to entertain us with your thoughts, Sir.
One more win and adios?? -- Grim Fandango

Crixus -- I saw that one coming.  It was like looking in a mirror, no?  Except your
reflection typically doesn't stab you repeatedly. -- Helrazor

Pietros -- Didn't think I was gonna pull that one out, but sometimes you surprise
yourself with your own awesomeness, you know? -- Raze

Loki -- A nice little scrap to introduce me to the arena, well fought! -- Nunmor Blak

Looking at the recent tourney results, congrats to our accidental DM just graduated,
Fathom Jumper, on dominating freshmen.  OAB, you have to stick around!  And, will
Sable de Sunset show up to fight?  Mannequin, condolences on your dead, likewise we
don't want to see you disappear! -- Stik

GWENHYVAR -- Hey! I actually got a challenge through!  And lucky you were the
recipient!  I need to do that more. -- Gitchigoomie

Lethal -- Go away!  Don't you understand that I am tired of that matchup?! -- Walli

Moshi Haru -- Nomad thought I had a chance with that matchup so he didn't avoid.  He
was wrong, I guess.  Nice win.  Try Walli next time. -- Lupus

Gogol -- BOLD!  Bold!  Not bald!  Do I look bald to you?  I certainly do not!
Bloody, yes, but not bald!  A lousy fighter perhaps, but a hairy one!  Geeze...
really does it take that much effort to read a name?!  Or, maybe I should be more
worried about my fighting than my name?  I guess maybe I was a bit distracted.  I
think I need to work on that.  And, aparently, a lot of other stuff as well. --
Wambasu the Bold

DM Red House -- Can you make it 3 in a row?  Congrats and good luck! -- Ben's Bazaar

The Bowls -- Nice three turns there, and we thought you were only good for cereal...
well, and icecream, guess we underestimated you. -- Ben's Bazaar

Death Mob -- Welcome back to the Blood Bowl! -- Ben's Bazaar

The Bowls -- Blood Bowl!  See we should have been able to see it, our bad.  Congrats
to you. -- Ben's Bazaar

Minions of Chaos -- I hope you are doing more than just tourney timing, either way,
welcome, you should feel right at home in this chaotic town. -- Ben's Bazaar

Fish -- Guess you don't need to hold your breath that long when you fight like that.
Here I was feeling like the fish out of water. -- Aunt Tilla--The Nun

Oski Noble -- You took that like a nobleman, never once did I hear you cry. -- Smurf
Lightning

Boudreaux -- That was-- Mime Boggling

Dust -- All in due time.  For now, enjoy your success. -- Mime Boggling
