                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Right on!  Seems only logical that an Older By Far warrior be on top of Zensu.
You guys are really learning how to respect your elders.  Yes, you are.
     Experience can be quite a valuable factor.  So can skill, I guess.  As you might
suspect, I am not just a mere 8-2 Champion.  My first intro to the arena floor was in
Orlando, where I TV'd and went deep at 12-3-2.  That was a fun time, and so is this--
the first Older By Far Duelmaster.
     Put on your armor.  Gather up a weapon.  Talk loud.  See you on the sands....
               Hearing Aid, Duelmaster I

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZENSU.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  CAPTAIN PLANET were a 
bunch of dogs after OLDER BY FAR got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with LORIS DEANE?  She actually beat CAPTAIN PLANET's EVIL TRASH, and walked 
away with 10 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at CAPTAIN PLANET while 
they watched THAT ONE MONKEY clobber I SAY NO.  It lost 8 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  DIRTY COAL was reminded on the sands why HEARING AID 
is Duelmaster.  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, SERPENTS HOLD!  The 
bums at OLDER BY FAR couldn't face the challenges from SERPENTS HOLD!  No excuse for 
that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, MARLIN KOLE! 
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  HEARING AID killed DIRTY COAL, and expects revenge from 
CAPTAIN PLANET.  The dead are better off dead--they have no worries.  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
