                             Notes from the arena champ.

     By what I heard, the standbys were getting fat from inactivity.  So, in a spirit
of fitness, the Commission dragged us onto the sands to give the standbys a workout.
Whoopee.
     At least this time I defeated the Veteran Mercenary.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in CLIFFHOME since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Welcome to CLIFFHOME, THE 
OAFS!  We need more teams who can get a 4-1-2 their first time out!  What's with 
CLOD?  He actually beat CLIFFHOME's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 28 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at JINDA-BAN.  TAREK TORR lost 4 points to 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TAREK TORR will provide 
more easy wins...  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VETERAN MERCENARY, BUT 
KARTIKAYA is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of CLIFFHOME unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Huh, Kart makes a deal out of him having beaten the Veteran Mercenary, but it took
him seven minutes to do it.  *I* beat the old dog in just over *one* minute. --
Jitney Johnny

I have a secret sympathy for Captured Orcs, but that doesn't stop me from fighting my
best against one. -- Lum Busby

I have no sympathy at all for Fratsfa Slaves.  Especially not when they're elves. --
Thea Dozzier

Well, *I* don't like Captured Orcs. -- Tarek Torr

Our congratulations to the long-absent Guru Gnu, now even more absent. -- Jorja and
Jinda-Ban

And we salute Cliffhome's tourney participants. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban again
