                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I greet you, glorious and historic Chimlevtal!  It was a GREAT honor to duel Ull
Hardhammer of The Stormbringers for the title.  When the city heard two Council of
Lords warriors, from two storied guilds were going to fight for the title of
Chimlevtal, they sold out four times over in less than ten minutes.  It is just so.
Well fought Ull!  I am honored that once again a Stormguard and a member of The
Council of Lords holds the title in the greatest arena in the history of the game.
Hussah!
     I will also note that Mannequin/Lord of War and his pup Thermopylae have failed
to pick up the gauntlet that was throne in their face to show up in Crysalis and mix
it up for the summer.  The Icelord activated ONE warrior for a little fun with this
braggart and WOW!  I never saw anyone wet their pants and run so fast!  Absolutely no
surprise.  Save the response coward.
     Well, I've no idea if I will be here next turn, but for now I am enjoying the
view!  In closing, I will just add that Mannequin/Lord of War, his clones here in 31
and Guardian are all fops.
     OMNE JUS STAT IN ARMIS.

your Duelmaster,

Ulthar Stormhelm
The Stormguards
The Council of Lords

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of CHIMLEVTAL!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought CAESAR'S POOL HALL was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  
WULFGAR was reminded on the sands why ULTHAR STORMHELM is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, WAR!  In my day, no team with a 83-34-6 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, THE STORMGUARDS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, ULL BLOODSTORM!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
ULL HARDHAMMER of THE STORMBRINGERS knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged SALAMIS of 
WAR who is up by 18.  Now was this a wise move?  ULL HARDHAMMER perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he subdued SALAMIS and ended up with 113 recognition points.  I 
hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that ENTROPY gets in.  
It fights people like ULTHAR THE PIOUS, 15 points below.  I thought ENTROPY showed 
great skill and promise when it bested ULTHAR THE PIOUS.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of CHIMLEVTAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have 
I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     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
