                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello Lapur!

     It's super great to be here!  I always have a swell time on the sands here.
Well unless I have to fight at night.  I am a little out of my element then!  That
was the 5th time I fought Sandstorm here in Lapur.  A little surprised about that.
There seems to be some absences this turn.  I am hoping it is only temporary and some
of those guys return soon.  Stillgard tells me one more win and I might just get an
invite to the Isle.  Wish me luck!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of LAPUR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
THE TAKEN.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  
Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  ALMOST EXACTLY is now 
ranked 1st with a 5-0-1 turn.  Laughs were big at ALMOST EXACTLY while they watched 
HOMINY CRICKET clobber NEVA.  She lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  ALMOST EXACTLY's hatred of THE TAKEN surfaced again as MISTER 
TWISTER challenged LAPUR's top dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for ALMOST 
EXACTLY's outstanding member, Duelmaster MISTER TWISTER.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, ALMOST EXACTLY!  In 
my day, no team with a 270-241-13 would scare me off!  What's the problem, BLACK 
SAMURAI?  What do people see in MAUL RAT?  His 8-4-1?  ALMOST EXACTLY ain't talkin', 
but he's got 101 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of 
fights that NEKODA gets in.  He fights people like MAUL RAT, 13 points below.  I 
thought NEKODA showed great skill and promise when he was killed by MAUL RAT.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  NEKODA of BLACK SAMURAI didn't know when to quit.  When you've 
got a 14-16-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  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.  
LAPUR 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

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission.
