                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That was carless of you, Cyprian.  Unkind, too, as I hadn't give a thought to
what I might say.  Not that anyone's going to read it anyway.

                                   Connie Pakkit

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to CLIFFHOME once again!  What's with CARTER PILLAR?  He actually 
beat BOY O'S' COSMO, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at BOY O'S.  COSMO lost 15 points to CARTER PILLAR.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe COSMO will provide more easy wins...  Apparently CLIFFHOME isn't 
filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 
challenges this turn!  BOY O'S' hatred of JINDA-BAN surfaced again as MATTEO 
challenged CLIFFHOME's top dog.  I'm sure CLIFFHOME is excited about MATTEO, the new 
Duelmaster from BOY O'S.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, OLD SCHOOL!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at BOY O'S ain't reelin'!  OLD SCHOOL's mad!  
     Warriors of CLIFFHOME unite.  You have only your games to lose!  KARTIKAYA 
larned his lesson (DIONYSUS taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im 
fight any OLD SCHOOL members with the same gusto.  Is it my imagination, or are 
fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Dionysus -- That's just like you!  Get drunk and bend my fenders.  Huh. -- Bent
Fender

Pherespundus -- Just putty in my hands, aren't you?  (wink) -- Redd Corvait

Hephaestus -- I knew they wouldn't let you bring your forge bellows onto the sands.
And I'm glad of that, imagine the way it would have blown sand in my face! -- Carter
Pillar

Hecantonchire -- I don't mind the occasional loss, but not TODAY.  Not with the moon
full!  That could be a dangerous time to be in the Infirmary. -- Kartikaya
P.S.  Oh, heck.  I didn't realize you were dead.  Blame it on the bad lighting when I
went to read the report.  Sorry about that.  Your teammates will know where to find
me.

Cyprian -- Eh?  What form does this "Orphans of Chaos" take?  It rings no bells with
me. -- Carter Pillar

Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
