                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail, Solven!!  (all 3 of us).  Happy to be on the throne.  Thanks to Jules for
leaving it vacant!!  Not sure how long I can hold, but will do my best!  Good hunting
all!!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SOLVEN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with DEJANNA KALM?  She 
actually beat HENPCS' PLUCKED SCRIBE, and walked away with 9 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at HENPCS.  PLUCKED SCRIBE lost 7 points to DEJANNA KALM.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe PLUCKED SCRIBE will provide more easy wins...  Try as 
she might, HEN OF DEATH wasn't good enough at persuading LUGER to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Hen of Death -- I've felt that way sometimes, like I could just rise up and go after
every vicious wretch who smashed my figurative eggs and kill 'em all!  But you don't
get to kill me, if I have anything to say about it. -- Dejanna Kalm

Chicken Guard -- Well, of course.  All your feathers are white. -- Gorlon Inthur

Embezzling Hen -- Egg thief! -- Korine Orles

Polite doesn't make up for being a beggar. -- Lynnis Nall

Balisong -- I don't think I like that song.  Can you do "The Daring Young Man"? --
Fedora Linde

We dutifully welcome three new warriors for Serpents Hold.  Why should we be nice to
them? -- the Middle Way crew

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
