                             Notes from the arena champ.

     At least the Veteran Mercenary has the decency to lose to me.  Not that I
expected any less.  He's a solid guy, even though he's an elf.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CLIFFHOME.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SPIKE?  It 
actually beat HOLMES ON THE RANGE's MY DEER WATSON, and walked away with 22 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at HOLMES ON THE RANGE.  MY DEER WATSON lost 19 
points to SPIKE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MY DEER WATSON will provide 
more easy wins...  Try as he might, KHALHUMS DWARF wasn't good enough at persuading 
LUM BUSBY to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of CLIFFHOME unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
