                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well I admit I thought it would be Pitt here instead of me but hey i'm happy with how
things turned out--smacked around a Ravaged Queen and became Dualmaster--all in one
day.

                           Dark Journey

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  STORM BRINGERS 
were a bunch of dogs after RAVAGING LORDS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet 
as 1st!  It seems so recently people were saying THE SEWING CIRCLE was washed up, 
finished.  But 4-0-0 moved them up 1.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with 
HEAD HUNTER?  He actually beat RAVAGING LORDS' MONOLYTH, and walked away with 19 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at RAVAGING LORDS.  MONOLYTH lost 16 points to 
HEAD HUNTER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MONOLYTH will provide more easy 
wins...  NIATOLI ISLAND, set your sights on KUNG-FU MASTER.  He'll be happy to 
entertain all requests after defeating DARK JOURNEY.  THE MONGOL looked pretty 
Duelmasterlike as he took NIATOLI ISLAND's top spot with 94 points.  Now, what will 
DARK JOURNEY 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.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE SEWING 
CIRCLE!  The bums at STORM BRINGERS couldn't face the challenges from THE SEWING 
CIRCLE!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in THE MONGOL?  His 11-10-1?  
RAVAGING LORDS ain't talkin', but he's got 94 points.  Fighting is a better craft 
than farming, THE MONGOL, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by 
TEMPEST, 27 points above you, is dues.  TEMPEST's gonna be practicin' hard this week, 
after THE MONGOL, lower ranked by far, mashed her!  Keep challenging up 27 points, 
RANGER, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  PITT always accepts those 
kind of challenges...  RANGER did pretty good last week in beating PITT to get 22 
points.  Why did PITT lose, you ask?  Simple:  he wasn't good enough.  KOBALT expects 
the easy win by going 24 points down.  TALON STORM will find this a hard lesson!  I 
have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, KOBALT!  He can't set himself up in a 
real match.  I was sorry to see TALON STORM lose.   
     Warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long 
have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     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

Lawn Tool -- Listen up ya urchin, I don't wanna hear any more of yer lip thinkin yer
better than I, or smarter than me cuz it just aint true.  You may have a slight lead
on the wins, but that well soon be corrected in my favor, just like the last time you
were here, hence the subpar records for your (haha) warriors.  They do have poor
records so I will allow you to down challenge me at your convenience, though you will
lose as always, in fact you have to upchallenge just to fight some of my guys with 10
to 15 fights less!!!  I will enjoy causing grief on you as I regain the throne. --
Ikillu

Tempest -- That was luck. -- Ranger

Dark Journey -- More luck, this turn I kick your donkey. -- The Mongol

Talon Storm -- More like chicken claws for that down challenge, you found out why I
am undefeated.  What a twerp. -- Kobalt

Pitt -- If you're going to stir up a storm, you'll have to try harder.  And pay
attention when people try to teach you things. -- Korienellen
P.S.  And I thank you for the win, which lets me leave with a winning record.  I
didn't expect that.

Toby -- Damn!  I've been ravaged!  I didn't realize you were that kind of guy. --
Dirty Howel

Listen, I don't DO Kung-Fu.  I never have and don't want to.  I'd a lot rather use a
sword. -- Rintirisse

Head Hunter -- What's the point in that?  It isn't like having a spare on hand
actually HELPS. -- Carolina Lily

Tempest -- Thanks, I've been working at it long enough. -- Korienellen

Korienellen -- Guess I should have brought a spare. -- Pitt

Rintirisse -- I didn't underestimate you.  You were just better than me. -- Talon
Storm

All -- I know Gen. Girlpants can't read so if one of you would be so kind as to read
this to it I would appreciate it.  This is 3 straight turns the Ravaged Queens have
had a losing record against the Storm Bringers. -- Rake
