                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Quarterstaff, mod/low, seriously.  Well at least let me leave you with a bit of
culture.

     let us sit and speak of many things,
     of wedding bells, and the deaths of kings.
     let us speak of fairer times,
     of dusty roads, and coming tides.
     let us speak of paths we've crossed,
     of friends we've made, and those we've lost.
     but let us speak another day,
     for a traveller I am, and must be on my way.

Hope to see you all in Darkholm. -- Omaha

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of RODEKI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with PAN?  She actually beat 
THE SOVEREIGN's RETRO, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at THE SOVEREIGN.  JADE lost 11 points to SALSANE.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe JADE will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, KHALHUMS DWARF 
wasn't good enough at persuading OMAHA to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  
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...  RODEKI thinks DELVERS 
and their 890-1175-22 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at WHERE I'VE EATEN ain't reelin'!  DELVERS' 
mad!  What do people see in ROCKSNAIL?  Its 16-12-0?  DELVERS ain't talkin', but it's 
got 74 points.   
     Warriors of RODEKI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Yeah, yeah, JOSEPH 
GEORGE killed ZAK PAIN, who was "too young to die."  Well, he was a fighter, and 
that's what you have to face.  JOSEPH GEORGE had a sure-fire victory when he 
challenged ZAK PAIN, 28 points below him.  Was anyone really surprised when ZAK PAIN 
bit it?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
RODEKI is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Jurgy -- Immortality came right on time for you. -- Razz

Blu -- Well fought, sir. -- Stud

Well I guess Razz will be going next.  This team sure did disappear fast.  Oh well,
Delvers, say hello to Pan. -- Dealer's Choice

Hey Harby -- I wasn't trying to sound like a jackass, I was just wondering "why"--
that's all;  Sixteen years is a long time, so I'm sure you must know a little
something. *smile* -- Scorpio

Am I reading mistakenly or did Jurgenhalen just get killed upon moving on to AD?
Dude Razz, that's a cold thing to do. -- Scorpio

Silver Lady -- Don't doubt that a rematch is coming. *smiles* -- Blue Smoke

Question:  How do Battleaxe Stampede and 42nd Dire Lancers have only one fighter?
I'm new so excuse my ignorance. -- Scorpio

Coach -- I don't expect to run in Darkholm, more like sit around in some quiet little
town. -- Jurgenhalen

Scorpio -- To each their own inclinations, but I see no point in bringing a new team.
-- Harby

Our congratulations to Omaha. -- Harby and the Delvers

Four-one and a death?  AND, the death was of me, who has passed beyond that threshold
and will not die forever?  Not bad, if you ask me.  Not that it matters all that much
to me now, but still, these are my teammates, more or less. -- Jurgenhalen, for the
Delvers
P.S.  The ones I remember with the most fondness are long gone now, one way or the
other.

Razz -- Yeah, okay, I know:  Dwarf vs Orc rivalry and all that.  Not my mug of beer.
Your timing was good, though. -- Jurgenhallen

Retro -- Well, good heavens!  Why were you going backward the whole time?  I knew
elves were strange, but I did think a half-elf would do better. -- Silver Lady

Jade -- No telling why the Commission matched us.  Maybe they were unnerved by seeing
someone so foreign? -- Joseph George
P.S.  Shouldn't you have a horse?

And two standbys given what for.  Ha! -- Rocksnail and the Anvil
