                             Notes from the arena champ.

It has been over 20 years that our team has come and gone from this arena.  We have
had many good warriors but all have died before reaching the top.  finally a DM title
and an inviter for Dartor in this arena.  This ends our days in this quiet arena.  We
enjoyed it very much.  Good luck to all.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LYRATILAN once again!  Woof!  THE MIDDLE WAY 4 were a bunch of 
dogs after DARK FORCES got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  DARK FORCES 
showed LYRATILAN what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off 
with 3-1-0.  What's with SUE CHURZ?  She actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY 4's ISEK KROL, 
and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at FUNKY FOLK 
while they watched PAUL TREE clobber URBIN YATES.  He lost 14 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged 
DARK ARENA's ARENAMASTER JYO?  That sort of initiative is how he got where he is now. 
The crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER JYO killed the Duelmaster, WORKER 
BEE, leaving WE BEE BAD in mourning.  So now BELLE ISSIMO gets to be LYRATILAN's 
Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  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.  The 
most avoided team was WE BEE BAD.  The bums at FUNKY FOLK couldn't face the 
challenges from WE BEE BAD!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in RAVING 
LUNATIC?  His 18-16-1?  DARK FORCES ain't talkin', but he's got 92 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
LYRATILAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
