                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Convicted Assassin.  It wasn't even a close fight.  Which is good, actually,
because who'd want to get close to an Assassin?  But still, this is getting SOOO old.
Why can't I just... graduate?

                                      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 FAITH?  She actually 
beat HOLMES ON THE RANGE's THE COWS AFOOT, and walked away with 14 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at HOLMES ON THE RANGE.  THE COWS AFOOT lost 9 points to 
FAITH.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THE COWS AFOOT will provide more easy 
wins...  Try as he might, KUNG-FU MASTER wasn't good enough at persuading LUM BUSBY 
to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     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!  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.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
