                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, for the cat's sake!  What am I doing here?  We were instructed to keep a low
profile, and this is not it.  Drat.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CHIMLEVTAL.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought THE STORMBRINGERS was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  
PIRATES' walking tall now that they went 2-1-0 their first time out.  But we know 
what awaits them soon...  What's with ARGUS FEYD?  He actually beat MIDDLE WAY 7's 
OMBERT QURL, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
MIDDLE WAY 7.  OMBERT QURL lost 12 points to ARGUS FEYD.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe OMBERT QURL will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, SINGALEK 
wasn't good enough at persuading KOLUM MAROD to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     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!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Circa 1968 -- I've got to stop drinking the night before matches.  Next time, let's
fight when I don't have a hangover. -- Swiftedge

Flavius II -- That wasn't very nice challenging a man of my age.  Try challenging
Singalek.  He's young and spry. -- Gorim the Elder

Death Knight -- It isn't often I mean someone as tall as I am, and it, um, yeah, it
put me off my stroke, right, that's what it did! -- Loden Norvis

Valyndara -- Ah, a lady and a good teacher, a boon indeed.  If I bring you flowers in
the Infirmary, will you accept them and smile at me? -- Oswell Quirn

Ugthar the Cruel -- Cruel indeed, not a single skill for me! -- Mandin Orle

Cassius -- Input error, I bet.  I've never known a ripper to use a war hammer. --
Ombert Qurl

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
