                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Kung-Fu Master, Bendiso of Osksi, did his best by the arena and the general
body of gladiators, but when matched with one of his own style actually carrying a
sword, he was not up to the job.  So it goes.  I salute his attempt.

                                    Kerman Jones

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZORPUNT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  MINGALOIDS showed ZORPUNT 
what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-0-0.  
What's with WENDELL?  He actually beat MEDAL OF HONOR A3's DA2, and walked away with 
22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ZORPUNT while they watched KUNG-FU 
MASTER clobber TRAVIS T FLETE.  He lost 18 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  Try as he might, KUNG-FU MASTER wasn't good enough at persuading 
KERMAN JONES to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.  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.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

DA1 -- Thanks, I really didn't want to send him to the DA, and come to think about
it, I think I forgot to bloodfeud you, oh well, always next turn. -- Barnabas

Frank -- Nice fight there tough guy, just don't mess with a woman! -- Ash Leela

Mitchell -- Didn't your parents teach you not to hit babies? -- Baby Karlie

DA2 -- Weird to look eye to eye, you caught me off guard, maybe I was nervous, my
first fight and all. -- Wendell

Kylemeister -- Let me drink a toast to your memory, I guess.  You will be missed. --

Notice to certain applicants at the recent recruitment meetings:  It is not a contest
to see who can figure out our mysterious means of conveyance first, and your
disruptive behavior in this pursuit was not appreciated by those of a more serious
inclination.  Do not return for the next stage of training.  It is plain that the
mystical mysteries of our cult are not for you. -- Sellestro, Cult Master, the
Unknown Cult
