                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What?  My good buddy SRV off to the Isle already?  He's too young, he's not
ready!  I know he was destroying most everyone he faced, and sat on the throne
several turns, and had that 11-win TV, okay, maybe he is ready.  But here I sit, with
more wins and more skills and I'm still here, go figure.  Anyway, let's be off to the
arena... where's this week's stand-in for me to humiliate? -- Hendrix

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in RODEKI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with C-PAPPY?  He 
actually beat RODEKI's DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, and walked away with 17 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at RODEKI while they watched DANGEROUS CRIMINAL clobber 
SOCKLESS CRITIC.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for COLOR ME SUAVE's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster ARMORED ECHO.  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...  The most avoided team 
was SHREDDERS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at COLOR ME SUAVE ain't 
reelin'!  SHREDDERS' mad!  WHERETHEHECKISTAN expects the easy win by going 29 points 
down.  KARLIGRENA will find this a hard lesson!  I have to get this off my chest.  
What a low dog, WHERETHEHECKISTAN!  He can't set himself up in a real match.  I was 
sorry to see KARLIGRENA lose.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  SRV looked pretty sick and surprised when he 
learned SHREDDERS is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 12-2-1?  
Some people are wondering why SHREDDERS sent SRV (12-2-1) to the Dark Arena.  Just be 
glad you're not on their team.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many 
skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Harby -- Thank you, sir. -- Urchin, Lord Protector, Champion of Champions

Isengalen -- How do you expect the dwarves

     Cut off by something, possibly a surfeit of formatting code.  Sorry.

I have the Initiates class all to myself?  I'm... ah, it's an honor.  I think. --
Jurgenhalen

Our congratulations to Srv. -- Harby and the Delvers

Wheretheheckistan -- I still think, okay, I still HOPE that you're bringing a carpet.
I'd like a carpet for my room in our guildhouse. -- Isengalen the faintly hopeful
P.S.  Those cold stone floors, you know.  I just don't want to get out of bed in the
morning.

Kool Moe Dee -- What?  That's a code or something, right?  I don't do codes. -- Igor
Jones
P.S.  Or any other kind of subtle.

Trugoy the Dove -- Nifty dance step, but save it for the taverns, okay?  I mean,
people were laughing.  Mostly at you, but you know what people are like.  They'll
remember that they laughed during the fight, but they'll figure I must've been
looking dumb, too. -- Karligrena

Talib Kweli -- And for this, I get to be the only Initiate.  Still, if it means that
next time I fight a standby, I can live with that.  A Convicted Thief, a Persistent
Beggar, something along those lines. -- Jurgenhalen

Jurg -- You can have a Beggar, if you want, but *I* get the Convicted Thieves. --
