                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Today, the Virginal Concubine.  I don't know how she can be virginal at that age
and with that disposition, but she says she is, and I wouldn't question the word of a
lady.

                                    Rambling Ox

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KATI-TEI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with JANIE JONES?  
She actually beat KATI-TEI's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, and walked away with 18 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at KATI-TEI while they watched HAPPY PEASANT clobber 
RAISE THE ABYSS.  She lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  KATI-TEI, set your sights on KUNG-FU MASTER.  He'll be happy to entertain 
all requests after defeating RAMBLING OX.  FORANDIN looked pretty Duelmasterlike as 
he took KATI-TEI's top spot with 106 points.  Now, what will RAMBLING OX do?  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  KATI-TEI thinks THE PLAGUE 
and their 234-227-17 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The 
bums at BIRDS couldn't face the challenges from THE PLAGUE!  No excuse for that!  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, GUNS OF BRIXTON!  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?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     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!  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Valgard -- Don't mess with the Khalhums Dwarf.  Remember what happens when he gets
motivated... -- Reaper

Guns of Brixton -- That was ridiculous, but ok. -- Ghost of Quod

Polite Beggar -- You really are horrible. -- Trinity

Happy Peasant -- You are worse. -- Eyes That Burn

Terrindar -- You curse like a sailor. -- Raise the Abyss

Someone find some real gladiators for this arena....  The stand ins are stinking up
the joint.... -- Reaper

The Kung-Fu Master didn't have much to teach me today.  Darn. -- Forandin

Khalhums Dwarf?  I curl my lip in recognition of my own superiority. -- Valgard
P.S.  Make that Lord Protector Valgard

Veterans who are handicapped by their old wounds when the weather is cold should not
be fighting in the winter. -- Lorimina

Raise the Abyss -- Well, darn.  I was all excited to have a fight against a managed
gladiator, the only one for us this week, and then I realized I also had the only
LOSS for us this week.  Bummer. -- Terrindar
P.S.  Not your fault, sweetie, you didn't know.

A maul?  I'm not big enough for a maul! -- Valgard, trying to keep both ends off the
ground and failing

We had a lot to say to our opponents but couldn't get a scribe to put the words down.
Simple be aware that we expect the six gladiators who fought us to treat us to an
excellent meal at the Golden Platter this evening. -- Pelhirion Teej, Fratsfan Noble,
speaking for the Standbys at Large

Lord Protector Valgard -- It is my understanding that we are not authorized to
provide you with any graduation gift until your teammate Lady Protector Flutterlee
discharges her ancestral debt to the Userous, ah, make that the HONEST Merchant. --
Arenamaster Jailon
