                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Cluck Cluck Cluck... looks like Luger didn't want to be duelmaster!  Clearly,
Luger was afraid of the HEN OF DEATH!!!  I mean, with a 17-1-2 record, no wonder he'd
want to hide from me at 12-10-0.  I'll peck all of you snakes.

-- Hen of Death

                                      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 CRANKY OLD ROOSTER?  He actually 
beat MIDDLE WAY 15's DEJANNA KALM, and walked away with 15 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at WAY OF THE SWORD C5.  ORON lost 13 points to CHICKEN GUARD.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ORON will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure 
SOLVEN is excited about THOME, the new Duelmaster from SERPENTS HOLD.  (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.   
     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.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
