                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, it took a few turns longer than my best of laid plans, but I have finally made
it to the top of Solven.  I'll keep this first one short, and just leave it at this:
If I make it out of Solven alive, I will be the most dominant warrior ever to come
from this fair arena.  Big words for a fourteen fight frankenstein tourney prize
freak.

-- Jackson

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SOLVEN once again!  What's with DONDRIC?  He actually beat 
SOLVEN's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 15.  CHAWLIE ISTTA lost 4 points to AMBITIOUS GUARD.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CHAWLIE ISTTA will provide more easy wins...  
CHUCKER ISTTA was reminded on the sands why JACKSON is Duelmaster.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  SOLVEN thinks OXYMORONS 
and their 7-18-0 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, 
no team with a 7-18-0 would scare me off!  What's the problem, KELLUMBO'S KIDS?   
     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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
SOLVEN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Chawlie -- My oh my, but are you a good one.  Glad you are a class ahead of my guys
for the time being.  Shoo! -- Kellumbo

Chucker -- Well, as they say, all good things must come to an end.  It was a great
run for me being able to challenge you for a decent number of turns in a row to get
my feet wet.  Hopefully I have enough skills now that I can survive the other
classes. -- Jackson

Dolby -- Ahh, you almost got me that time! -- Jerome

B.B Newsboy -- Welcome to Solven.  Kellumbo's Kids hopes you enjoy your stay in our
fine arena. -- Detective Kellumbo

Edgiles -- Funny that you got parry and shield as faves.  Maybe you should have tried
it out.  I always wonder how my bashers will do with ME or LG, then chicken out and
don't try it. -- DK

Jackson -- Lovely lady, let me make a gift of the title for you.  I could have it,
maybe, but hey, you'll look prettier up there with the crown.  Well, wreath of, uh,
ivy?  Pear leaves?  Whatever.  Those things give me hey fever anyway.  They keep
slipping around, and I end up half-blinded and saying, Hey! -- Chucker Istta
P.S.  No, seriously, any time you want to push me down and get all physical, you just
go to it, though I would prefer a bit more privacy.

Jerome -- That's just plain embarrassing.  Ouch. -- Dolby Jossel

Lipstick -- Love that look on you!  And I love the way just one look at me left you
stunned and, what do they call it?  Malleable, yeah, that's it.  Means you're putty
in my hands, or something, right?  My dream come true. -- Chawlie Istta

You won't persuade ME that a truly Honest Merchant would be spending his time on the
sands.  Or maybe he's truly honest, but not much of a merchant.  Whatever.  I cock a
snook at him. -- Io Oldend

Out of Reach -- Yeah, right.  You tall people always crow about that, but now you
see!  When I get you flat on the ground, what's the use of being tall, hmm? --
