                             Notes from the arena champ.

Its always a great day in Solven when a striker knocks off a scum like Tashell to
take Solven's throne.  I am very proud to be here, and happy to see that Judge is
actually making some strategy decisions and is paying attention to our stable.  Not
sure I will be here next turn, but the challengers look pretty tough, well the
offensive styles anyway. 

                        Your Duelmaster,

                             Bilbray

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SOLVEN once again!  Woof!  MIDDLE WAY 15 were a bunch of dogs 
after KELLUMBO'S KIDS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Some people 
say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  
Well THE REPUBLICANS moved up 1, to 2nd.  What's with GULIANI?  He actually beat 
MIDDLE WAY 15's FORBRAN LEUW, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 15.  FORBRAN LEUW lost 14 points to GULIANI.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe FORBRAN LEUW will provide more easy wins...  Apparently 
SOLVEN isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded 
Duelmaster got 3 challenges this turn!  KELLUMBO'S KIDS' hatred of THE REPUBLICANS 
surfaced again as TASHELL challenged SOLVEN's top dog.  I'm sure SOLVEN is excited 
about TASHELL, the new Duelmaster from KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  (remember?)  But when you've 
seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  SOLVEN thinks THE 
REPUBLICANS and their 500-489-27 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  The bums at KELLUMBO'S KIDS couldn't face the challenges from THE REPUBLICANS! 
No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, 
if EXECRATOR can return from the Dark Arena.  Who will dare fight IAN MUNRO, after he 
returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 9-5-1 is 71, and has he points) Hmm... 
More surprises must remain in store for me, if PUD UGLY! can return from the Dark 
Arena.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so 
young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  SOLVEN is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Kidnerguardian -- So there! -- Belissa Hough
P.S.  Not that it does much good for either of us to "reconsider this gladiator
stuff."  We're stuck with it.

Trump -- Can you do it with a trombone, too? -- Dolby Jossel
P.S.  Or a sax.
P.P.S.  Seems to me somebody told me a sax is also a sword.  Weird thought.

Nafisah -- Such is life in the arena, hmm? -- Edgiles Kapp
P.S.  If this was Caleam, I'd spin you a recipe from your name, but since it
isn't....

I just don't see how the Pheasant can be Happy, since he's a p-strike.  He's
operating under a curse. -- Chucker Istta
P.S.  Of course, some people may be so perverse as to LIKE being cursed, I couldn't
say.

McCain -- Those fans!  You probably aren't a stupid idiot, and even if you were, how
would THEY know?  Oh, well. -- Forbran Leuw
