                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That's a strange... appearance you have around your head, Plucked Scribe.  I
mean, your pinfeathers are plucked out in... is that a target pattern?  It's
incredibly tempting.

                                  Gilly Manderson

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SOLVEN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with MANIC 
DEPRESSION?  He actually beat SOLVEN's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, and walked away with 21 
more points from the fight.  I'm sure SOLVEN is excited about BALISONG, the new 
Duelmaster from SERPENTS HOLD.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team 
is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     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.  Yeah, yeah, LAWDY killed PYTHON, who was "too young 
to die."  Well, it was a fighter, and that's what you have to face.  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Embezzling Hen -- Take that, you dumb cluck.  I say that, so rudely, because I have
Secret Inside Knowledge that your manager won't care, and because I'm feeling
generally peevish at the moment.  Which you can blame on the weather.  Snow!  Ice!
Ugh! -- Lynnis Nall

Eh, an Ambitious Guard.  You gotta wonder about these guys.  Why are they so eager to
feed themselves into our swords?  How many actually make the grade?  Damned few. --
