                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Good!  A Convicted Assassin (though he assures me that he's actually a simple
murderer, not an assassin) eats sand at my hands.  I like this.

                                    Corbie Lek

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZENSU!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with LOOT AND PLUDER?  He 
actually beat BEYOND THE PALE's LINAEA DEANE, and walked away with 8 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at CAPTAIN PLANET.  WIND lost 2 points to CORBETT JOSYE.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe WIND will provide more easy wins...  VETERAN 
MERCENARY was reminded on the sands why CORBIE LEK is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BEYOND THE 
PALE!  In my day, no team with a 698-831-27 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
SERPENTS HOLD?   
     Warriors of ZENSU unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ZENSU is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
