                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Definitely the heat.  The Lead Pipe, and we all know lead has a low melting
point for a metal, has sprung a leak.  Not only that, but the political points
involved in this win have propelled me to graduation.  I have no interest at all in
going to the Isle of the Eye, but I will be glad to retire and forego the constant
practice--and risk--involved in being an active gladiator.  At least during the
summer, while it's so darned hot!

                                    Fenella Jhen

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome LYRATILAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  It seems so recently 
people were saying ERRATA was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 0.  I 
guess they're washed no more...  Major screwup at GOTTA GET A CLUE.  THE LEAD PIPE 
lost 7 points to URBIN YATES.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THE LEAD PIPE 
will provide more easy wins...  Try as she might, MRS. PEACOCK wasn't good enough at 
persuading FENELLA JHEN to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was THE BLUE HOTEL.  The bums at ERRATA couldn't face the challenges from THE BLUE 
HOTEL!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, RAGDOLL!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  WAIT of 
ERRATA knows how to pick 'em.  It challenged TOL VORAM of THE MIDDLE WAY 4 who is up 
by 20.  Now was this a wise move?  WAIT perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it 
won victory over TOL VORAM and ended up with 56 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Someone told COWBOY that ERRATA never Bloodfeuded, 
that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  Many 
a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!  
     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

A Kung-Fu Master?  I have no particular interest in Kung-Fu, and I'm afraid it showed
in my poor performance.  Perhaps I need to give just a little thought to it. --
Kolter Neete

Mrs. Peacock -- That was YOU in the pantry?  Darn.  I was expecting the Plum dame.
Her, I could have handled. -- Isek Krol
P.S.  All I wanted was to snitch a couple of cookies.  Honest!

Jifi -- Well, that makes a change!  I was waiting for the rest of your name to be
announced, and you just up and creamed me.  Short names... what will managers think
of next? -- Urbin Yates

Indigo -- Hmm, a Serpent, a werewolf, and dark blue... hard to visualize, and I
couldn't see you all that well through the heat haze.  Are you someone I want to
invite home to meet my friends, or should I just be glad I couldn't see more? -- Tol
Voram

Epee?  Are they nuts?  I have neither the wit nor the deftness for an epee. --
Fenella Jhen the disgusted

Crane -- Ah... "nothing"?  As in, what were you hoping for?  Give me a clear signal
and I'll see what I can do. -- Jorja
P.S.  Lead pipes ARE soft, relatively.  And the softer the better, when one must meet
The Lead Pipe on the sands.
P.P.S.  Fenella's stats available on request.  It isn't that I'm unwilling, I just
fell out of the habit of posting such things regularly.

     Some managers have attempted to send personals and columns to hal, and hal has
been refusing to acknowledge their content.  I don't know what hal's problem is,
specifically, but for best success, send PLAIN TEXT (dot txt) in the body of the
