                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Xochitwhatever!  Or should I say greetings to the Middle of the Kiwi
Connection Way.  Seems odd to be here after losing to the DM, and since there's
something that's not quite ducky with that, I'm going to sit outagain this turn.
Quack you later!

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to XOCHITHLAN once again!  What's with ASQUITH?  He actually beat 
THE MIDDLE WAY's XYOKOR YAHL, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at THE MIDDLE WAY while they watched DEELA ELLIS clobber PEKING DUCK. 
He lost 5 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  
Did DUCK A L'ORANGE wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, it's not Duelmaster anymore. 
I can barely restrain my enthusiam for KIWI CONNECTION's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster COLLINGWOOD.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     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, KIWI CONNECTION!  The 
bums at DUCKS UNLIMITED couldn't face the challenges from KIWI CONNECTION!  No excuse 
for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Crip -- Welcome to Xochithlan; it is always fun to have more the two teams in an
arena. -- the Mun

Duck A L'Orange -- How do you feel taking the throne by a loss. -- D'Urville

Aw, gee, just the Veteran Mercenary to graduate on?  I mean, I like the guy well
enough, and I won, and graduation is a relief, but... nobody MANAGED?  Aw. -- Deela
Ellis

Collingwood -- You know, I'm trying to get to the point where *I* might graduate, and
you are not helping. -- Xyokor Yahl

Ipswich -- Bah. -- Saml Tyne

Asquith -- Oh, now, THAT was annoying.  Not as annoying, I admit, as Jorja saying
"easy come, easy go," but still, I wasn't DONE with this life. -- Ghost of Ohtar Paes

Fortunately, I'm a golem and I don't HAVE to feel bad about beating up on a woman. --
Timor Unred
P.S.  Plus, I'm pretty sure she'd've killed me if she could've.

Lady Protector Deela Ellis -- Same terms as last time for D'Urville.  Have a good
trip. -- Shadrack Tev, Arena Manager and General Handyman
