                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings, Chimlevtal!

     It is a great honor for me to be the one to break the streak of duelmasters from
the Bad News Bees stable.  True, I did not directly beat Drone-On, but I think I
could've beaten him if he wouldn't have been ducking me.  I don't really blame him--
I had a big style advantage, and I doubt he wanted to be on the receiving end of a
halbard shot from me.  Rebekka, if you'd like, you can give the arena a report on
just how good that feels...
     I'd like to give a warm welcome back to one of Noble's other stables here in
Chimlevtal, welcome back Just Desserts!  We've been carrying the flag here for a
while, so it's nice to have some help for a change!  I hope Spring brings more teams
back to the arena.  Though we have pretty good representation here, it's nothing like
it was back when I was watching from the bleachers vs. being down here on the sands!
     For those of you who haven't seen me fight here--you probably don't realize that
as I walk to the sands for every fight I ask the arena to play a "theme song" for my
fight that week.  Last week's song, "Jawbreaker," was especially appropriate as the
shot that put Rebekka down was very close to her jaw.  I take requests--so if any of
you have a good song from the 80s that you'd like to see me get announced to--feel
free to let me know and I will consider it.  I anticipate being here until I get my
call to the Isle so you should have a few chances to get your request in.  Some would
call that cocky, I call it confident.

     Awesome 80s

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to CHIMLEVTAL once again!  THE STORM REAVERS showed CHIMLEVTAL what 
they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's 
with STEEL DRAGON?  He actually beat LOONY TOONS' SYLVESTER, and walked away with 21 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE CANUCKS while they watched STEEL 
DRAGON clobber SYLVESTER.  He lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  See how the Duelmaster challenged THE STORM REAVERS' THRALL?  That sort 
of initiative is how he got where he is now.  I'm sure CHIMLEVTAL is excited about 
THRALL, the new Duelmaster from THE STORM REAVERS.  (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 
AVENGERS.  In my day, no team with a 281-274-18 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, THE FARSEERS?  What do people see in THRALL?  His 16-11-0?  THE STORM 
REAVERS ain't talkin', but he's got 108 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if HANK \ 
can return from the Dark Arena.  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.  
CHIMLEVTAL is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
