                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Dr. Rosenzweig sends his less-than-humble thank you for once again and again
honoring him with the deserved title of Duelmaster.  He understands your respect and
admiration and thanks you for your recognition of eliteness.  He wishes you health as
you struggle at the lower levels of arena competition.  He trusts that you will
always remember your excitement at being in his great presence.
                   Nurse Sue Ann

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in IAYE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and 
too little dodging gave IRON THRONE a 3-2-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, I TRAINED THEM's 3rd moved them up to 3-1-0 place.  Some people say I ramble 
too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well LOVE 
LETTERS moved up 3, to 5th.  What's with CHIEF TOMTOM?  He actually beat THE 
WARLOCKS' ON THE MOON, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at I TRAINED THEM while they watched NULN clobber THE CLEAR.  It lost 14 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently IAYE isn't 
filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 3 
challenges this turn!  Another fighter (TRIPLE-X 10-1-0) challenged another 
Duelmaster (DR. ROSENZWEIG 23-10-1).  Life goes on.  I'm sure IAYE is excited about 
TRIPLE-X, the new Duelmaster from LOVE LETTERS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as 
many as I have...  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.  The most avoided team was 
LOVE LETTERS.  The bums at LENPROS couldn't face the challenges from LOVE LETTERS!  
No excuse for that!  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that SNOTMAN gets in.  He fights people like CRAZY FINGERS, 9 points below.  I 
thought SNOTMAN showed great skill and promise when he was overcame by CRAZY FINGERS. 
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?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Dr. Rosenzweig -- You have a twisted sense of Health, Humility, & Honor.  I anxiously
await the closure of your contract and your moving on to...anything. -- Lenpro

I am pleased to announce that Chief Tomtom, who TV'd the dead apprentice
classification will be rejoining the Lenpros this turn.  We are thrilled to have him
back. -- Lenpro

Crazy Fingers -- Without me to mentor you, your graduation might never have happened.
That is the great extent of my undying love. -- Dr. Rosenzweig

Goff -- Finally there is one who recognizes those who are above the minions.  Your
note was uplifting amongst the jealous servants of society. -- Dr. Rosenzweig

Triple-X -- I mist give praise to your great skills.  The gods continue to bless you.
Amen. -- Pastor Pentane

XOXOXO -- That was enjoyable, but I really wish you would not kiss so hard. -- Lady
Huntsman

Red Dog Gang -- We were saddened by the falling of Murgurod.  May this warrior fight
well in that great arena in the sky. -- Lenpro and Clan

C-cup -- I love the way you bounce.  Leeta always hits me when I say that, but it's
true! -- Bigfoots

S.T.D. -- "Second To Dog"? -- Luisienne

H. Hatrack -- Drat.  Still, I suppose it's marginally better to lose to a hatrack
than to an armoire. -- Rishteke

Rillion -- Oh, yeah?  Well, didn't anybody teach you about being kind to dogs?  How
can we be man's best friends if men beat us up? -- Perrojo

Talkin' Camel Walk -- That was embarrassing. -- Ghost of Murgurod
P.S.  Especially the oaf in the audience who yelled that I could "do it" after I'd
fallen dead on the sands!

Who are these I Trained Them guys to go 4-0 in MY arena?  Go away, punks. -- Dr.
Rosenzweig, Duelmaster Extraordinaire

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
