                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Whoa!  Very strange front page.  Did somebody forget to bribe Hal?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in NIATOLI ISLAND since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  RAVAGING 
LORDS were a bunch of dogs after THE SEWING CIRCLE got through with 'em!  2nd ain't 
so sweet as 1st!  What's with KOBALT?  He actually beat JAILBIRDS' PARIS HILTON, and 
walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at JAILBIRDS while 
they watched RADINSKI clobber MONOLYTH.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  NIATOLI ISLAND, set your sights on M. CHARDINEE.  
He'll be happy to entertain all requests after defeating KORIENELLEN.  THE MONGOL 
looked pretty Duelmasterlike as he took NIATOLI ISLAND's top spot with 81 points.  
Now, what will KORIENELLEN do?  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice 
on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Someone told DIRTY HOWEL that RAVAGING LORDS never 
Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right 
sorry.  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
