                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha!  Who is the old dog now?  You can call me the top dog, Loial!  Thanks,
Gaspar, for a chance at the throne.  I have to admit I did not expect this.  I hope
to hold on a few turns and head up to the Isle maybe.  Hurray!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of LYRATILAN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  A team with purpose!  A team with 
the skill to back up their boasts!  Getting a 2-1-0 their first time out is DENNY'S 
MENU.  ARCANE BOOKSHELF's walking tall now that they went 2-1-0 their first time out. 
But we know what awaits them soon...  What's with THE KILL RIFF?  He actually beat 
LYRATILAN's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at LYRATILAN while they watched M. CHARDINEE clobber LOIAL.  He lost 
10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  GASPAR HUELCO was 
reminded on the sands why HURIN is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some 
rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, 
if DA can return from the Dark Arena.  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.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Keokuk Moon -- Not sure I like this weapon Stillgard gave me, but a win is a win.
Thanks for the fight. -- Loial

Nellie -- Sometimes trickery comes in handy. -- Thom

Stillgard -- Good to have you here. -- Jorja

Loial -- I have to be.  I need a lot of food, and it's first come, first served. --
Gaspar Huelco

Padre -- That unfortunately happens.  At least you don't have to run the replacement,
if it's no good.  You could even ring in a whole new team one of these days. -- Jorja

Hurin -- Great!  YOU can do all the promo work now:  the chicken a la king dinners,
the speeches, kissing the infants, autographing people's fight programs (make sure
that IS what you're actually signing, there are some people out there who have NO
SHAME). -- Gaspar Huelco

Stillgard -- I don't know what's got into these guys lately!  ONE win on the team,
and it's Leron, who is a thorough loser, KILLING your novice.  Of course, I do see
that Jorin was an aimed blow, and they're so GOOD at dying, but still, sorry about
that. -- Jorja, the Middle Way
