                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Malodorousreek, you really are disgusting.  I suppose you can always find work
as being the "more formidable foe in the bathtub," not that I believe you've ever
been NEAR a bathtub, but really, it's too much.

                                      Tatharli

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to NIATOLI ISLAND once again!  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, CHAOTICDISORDER.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
SUCCOTASH?  He actually beat CHAOTICDISORDER's MALODOROUSREEK, and walked away with 
14 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at VEGGIES while they watched 
SUCCOTASH clobber MALODOROUSREEK.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for ARENA FELINES' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster NIMBLE NEUTER.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give 
up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

he knows lots of good things.  Just not about gladiating. -- Irinkesta

I wish people wouldn't go "capturing" orcs.  It makes them testy.  This one was so
