                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Kung-Fu Master stupid.  No sword.  Very stupid.  This is true.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with RUMAKI?  She actually 
beat JINDA-BAN's MOSQUITO, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at FREAKISH while they watched RUMAKI clobber MOSQUITO.  She lost 12 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently CLIFFHOME 
isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 
challenges this turn!  Another fighter (PAWS 13-6-1) challenged another Duelmaster 
(GUHULONG 12-12-0).  Life goes on.  So GUHULONG finally bought it, eh?  I thought he 
too sure of himself, always strutting around.  PAWS, there's a lesson here!  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...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
CLIFFHOME is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
