                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Fare thee well, Sunset!  As my manager often does, he'll be sending me to the
Dark Arena for my last fight here.  Alas, I won't be fighting on the isle, instead I
get to retire.  Now for a look at what makes me so cold... 9(+1)-8-11-17-21-12-7.
This is also why I used the SS most of the time.  My favorites turned out to be SH
(used it a few times, never noticed anything special) and H/VH, riposte tactic.  This
was really Buri's first attempt to run a 7 DF all the way to ADM, all the others were
DAed or abandoned.  It's been fun, wish me luck! -- Cold Shot

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SUNSET!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  SUNSET watched with 
glee as THE BLUES got knocked off top spot by TOOL SHED!  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave THE UNHOLY ONES a 1-4-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  
Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out 
the pain!  KANO CLAN is now ranked 3rd with a 3-0-0 turn.  It seems so recently 
people were saying BLOOD AND SAND was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-1 moved them up 
6.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with NICK SEAFORT?  He actually beat 
NOMADIC TRIBE's BATWAMBA, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at CAJUN APOCALYPSE while they watched BOUDREAUX clobber NIGHT DIVIDES 
THEDAY.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See 
how the Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's SPYMASTER?  That sort of 
initiative is how he got where he is now.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
SPYMASTER killed the Duelmaster, COLD SHOT, leaving THE BLUES in mourning.  So now 
MITER BOX gets to be SUNSET's Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  SUNSET thinks 420 B.C. 
and their 71-63-6 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, 
no team with a 71-63-6 would scare me off!  What's the problem, DEVIATION?  How well 
I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, WAMBASU THE BOLD!  Don't 
make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  LAWN expects the easy win by 
going 22 points down.  MAME HOSHIRO will find this a hard lesson!  LAWN's gonna be 
practicin' hard this week, after MAME HOSHIRO, lower ranked by far, mashed him!  
WHEELBARROW didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from FLAP JACK 
of ALL JACKED UP II, who is 21 points below him.  FLAP JACK perhaps got its just 
desserts, seeing as it was beat by WHEELBARROW and ended up with 47 recognition 
points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  The ultimate victory is one that results in death.  
YOUNG BLOOD of knows this.  Will THE UNHOLY ONES attempt a Bloodfeud?  ZYLAR was plum 
wore out after YOUNG BLOOD pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  THE UNHOLY ONES'll have 
to get a little better before going after YOUNG BLOOD again!  Many a warrior has met 
his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     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!  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Buri -- Congrats on getting Cold Shot out, and the nice 3-turn record.  Keep that up
and the old win percentage will put you on top in no time! -- Stik

Delamar -- Apology accepted, we will not bloodfeud the final two turns.  Just don't
let it happen again, you know?  And you're welcome for the skillage. -- Grim Fandango

My Sword and Saviour -- That was a most unfortunate and embarassing reversal of
fortune on my end, I have to say!  But, the whole immortality thing is a soothing
salve, I'm finding!  Off to the Isle now, seeyas! -- LP Raze

Gentle Ben -- You need some help keeping those youngin's alive??  Don't look at me!
Drinks on me tonight at the double-B! -- Stik

Crixus -- That went just as planned, thanks for lettin' me cut ahead. -- Cold Shot

Beastly Smurf --Nnext time, try more beast, less smurf! -- Spoonful

Slayer of Nazguls -- But... but... I'm not a Nazgul! -- Bridge of Sighs

All -- I'd hoped to become a legend here, but my time was cut short.  21-4-20-21-7-4-
7 is one of the most extreme odd rollups we've seen in a while. -- Bridge of Sighs

All -- It's been a good run, but I expect to lose the top spot this turn.  With two
DAs and one sitting out, it's rebuilding time for me. -- Buri
