                             Notes from the arena champ.

Sweet!  Duelmaster of Solven!

    Okay, my shot at champs in the tournament didn't go exactly as planned (and, of
course, I had to listen to Maulcontent brag the entire trip home) but at least I come
back from the big event to land on my feet here in the ol' home arena!  And it adds
up to 5 free fights for the team, as well.  That has to be worth something.  Perhaps
a little extra cha-ching in the old money bag?  Or maybe a private room at the Guild
house?  A little extra time off to enjoy the fame that comes with this illustrious
seat....
     What?  Nothing?  You mean, like, really... nothing?  But... free turn.  And the
title.  What do you mean nothing?!  That can't be right!  I'll talk to the boss...
     Oh, union rules?  Really?  I never did read the fine print on those.  So, we all
have to get treated the same, huh?  No perks?  No golden parachute when I get my
invite?  Not even with all the glory produced for the team?  No?  Just... a base
salary with a little bump for wins and points and that is it?  Well, I guess that's
fair.  This chair does come with a lot of points, after all.
     Uhm... Maulcontent doesn't get a bonus for his tournament, does he?  No?  Good.
I'd never hear the end of that.  At least this way I can brag that I got the rest of
the team involved with those freebies.  Get some young'uns out there.
     Wait.  What?  Dark Arena?  For Maulevolent and Johzan?  But, can you do that?  I
mean, union rules and all... don't they protect them a little?  They were put on an
improvement plan?  When?  How?  They never got a chance to actually fight... oh, in
practice?  And didn't show improvement?  So you can terminate them?  That sounds
harsh.  But I guess they've been getting paid while they weren't fighting, being
union members and all, right?
     And the two new guys we get, they'll be in the union as well, right?  Well,
yeah, closed shop and all that.  So at least we can guarantee them a little income
while they try and prove themselves, right?  Maybe Maulcontent can help them learn
the technicalities of the mace?  You know, this union really has taught me everything
I know about the arena.  And we do have quite a good medical plan--I've never been
turned away at the infirmary.  So I guess I owe it quite a bit, bonus or no bonus.
     So to bring honor to Local 457, I, Mault Liquor, shall down a cold one (At my
own expense!) and go out and defend my title!

-- Mault Liquor, Duelmaster of Solven, and proud member of Mauls Local 457

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SOLVEN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Major screwup at MAULS 
LOCAL 457.  MAULCONTENT lost 16 points to SSG6.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
MAULCONTENT will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure SOLVEN is excited about SSG4, 
the new Duelmaster from MEDAL OF HONOR 104.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as 
many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was ARE YOU ?.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 80'S DISCO ain't reelin'!  
ARE YOU ?'s mad!  What do people see in ROCKIT?  His 2-2-0?  80'S DISCO ain't 
talkin', but he's got 16 points.  FOXY LADY of ARE YOU ? knows how to pick 'em.  She 
challenged FARLIN MEEKS of MIDDLE WAY 15 who is up by 21.  Now was this a wise move?  
FOXY LADY perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she subdued FARLIN MEEKS and 
ended up with 88 recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that CONFUSION gets in.  He fights people like IYAN KENNIS, 8 points 
below.  I thought CONFUSION showed great skill and promise when he subdued IYAN 
KENNIS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of SOLVEN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     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
