                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Penniless Lord?  If he sold that fancy armor, he could live comfortably for
years on the proceeds.
     I will not, at this time, reveal my secrets, as I hope to take my extremely
charismatic and attractive self off to the Isle, where I will cut a wide swath
through the ladies and babes.

                                     Black Tiger

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LAPUR once again!  Woof!  CARDOW HUNTERS were a bunch of dogs 
after EQUESTORS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with 
POSTUMUS?  He actually beat LAPUR's CONVICTED THIEF, and walked away with 13 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at EQUESTORS while they watched TETRICUS 
clobber MAD DOG.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  DEADLY ASSASSIN was reminded on the sands why BLACK TIGER is Duelmaster.  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  What 
do people see in STONETOOTH?  His 18-17-0?  CARDOW HUNTERS ain't talkin', but he's 
got 94 points.  MURRY of CROC FILES knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged GALLIENUS 
of EQUESTORS who is up by 23.  Now was this a wise move?  MURRY perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was bested by GALLIENUS and ended up with 28 recognition 
points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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
