                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, it's a grand day in Kati-Tei!  I can hear the tower bells ringing, the
birds chirping, and the fans cheering!  Those smelly Dawg Poopers are finally off the
throne.  And now we can all prepare for the onslought of the coming Storm!  It took
longer than I expected, but the climb to the top was worth every step.  My brother at
the Isle, Tyefoon Turmoil was right!  There's nothing quiet like it.
     But looking around, it seems the only faces I see are the friendly and familiar
ones from my stable.  So who to fight, who to fight, my throne for someone to fight.
Unless the warriors of the Plague come back to challenge me, or a new worthy
challenger decides to return to the arena unexpected, it looks like I'm going to
fight a stand in to keep my crown.  Not exactly the epic battle I was looking for to
keep the title, but I guess I'll take what I can get.  Or maybe I'll Bloodfeud that
little runt of a pup, Firehydrant Defiler, for ending the life of one of our better
prospects prematurely.  But where's the glory in that!  So whatever the fates decide
to happen will happen.

See ya on the sands,
El Nino

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KATI-TEI once again!  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't 
say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well WANDERERS moved up 0, to 
3rd.  Another fighter (THE WAIT 25-16-0) challenged another Duelmaster (EL NINO 
12-8-0).  Life goes on.  I'm sure KATI-TEI is excited about THE WAIT, the new 
Duelmaster from THE PLAGUE.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  
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.  The most avoided team was 
THE STORM FRONT.  The bums at THE PLAGUE couldn't face the challenges from THE STORM 
FRONT!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, KOHOUTEK!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Keep 
challenging up 26 points, DEVIL DOG, and I won't have to write about you much longer. 
BALIN CHANE always accepts those kind of challenges...  DEVIL DOG found one way to 
advance:  challenging BALIN CHANE and losing, but getting 5 points.  No brain, no 
pain.  OLD YELLER of DA DOG POWNDAZ knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged DODO of 
BIRDS who is up by 22.  Now was this a wise move?  OLD YELLER perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he beat DODO and ended up with 63 recognition points.   
     Warriors of KATI-TEI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  KATI-TEI 
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

Grimm Lurcher -- I thought my prospects were grimm when I saw you standing there, but
that sure was one devil of a fight! -- Devil Dog

Dodo -- Disappointed that I lost, but it could have been worse... you could have been
named Doodoo, in which I case I'd feel even worse loosing to you. -- Old Yeller

Tore Naydo -- Damn, you pee on the wrong hydrant and mother nature doesn't let you
live in peace for one turn! -- Firehydrant Defiler

Lucky Dawg -- Good luck in Talahya, my old friend. -- Marma Duke

Reaper/Stormy -- Sorry I've been MIA the past few weeks... real life has had me by my
doggy nether regions.  I'll get in touch with both of you soon. -- Marms

Kung-Fu Master -- Thanks a lot!  Now I can't stop humming, "Everybody was kung-fu
fighting..." -- El Nino

Balin Chane -- Now who says that the sequel can't be better than the original.  I'm
starting to prove my skeptics wrong! -- Syklone Sequel

Tore Naydo

Kati-Tei!  Where is eveyone around here?!  I remember how proud and grand this arena
used to be... and can still be again!  Hope everyone comes out and plays again after
the tourney. -- Stormlord

Syklone Sequel -- Unfortunately, around here that's usually another syklone, which we
could do without.  And I feel the same way about another loss. -- Balin Chane

Devil Dog -- I foresee an end to my winning record.  Unfortunate, I suppose, but
that's the way it goes when a manager won't tinker the strategies. -- Grimm Lurcher

I bet the Ruthless Jaywalker wears specially spiked boots just to trample the people
he knocks down! -- Samara

Probably. -- Marlin Reeve

And he loans them to the Ambitious Guard, too. -- Kohoutek
