                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I wouldn't call that a fair fight, even if Venom has a lot of tourney
experience.  Which he probably does, scaly little squirt that he is.  Still, I've got
a lot more experience HERE, and I know every sandy inch of this arena, having had my
face pushed into it more than once.
     I'd be willing to graduate any time, but I need you guys to help me get some
ratings for that.

                                   Chester Grell

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JHANS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with VALKHAN?  He actually 
beat MIDDLE WAY 17's HILDRETH LAMONT, and walked away with 9 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at JHANS while they watched VETERAN MERCENARY clobber VENOM.  
He lost 6 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN was reminded on the sands why CHESTER GRELL is Duelmaster.  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.  JHANS thinks TEMPLE OF STEEL 
and their 76-48-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, 
no team with a 73-47-2 would scare me off!  What's the problem, SERPENTS HOLD?   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
