     Xargoth the half-orc walked out into the courtyard where Marius was practicing.
     "I thought you were a veteran at combat," smirked the half-orc, his broad face
wearing a sarcastic smile.
     "Look," responded Marius, "commanding horsemen in the Karnhorn Empire hardly
prepares you for gladitorial combat.  Besides she was ridiculously fast.  Here's an
idea.  You challenge her and see how your fare."
     Xargoth's smile widened.  The thick lower teeth protruding past his lips made
his prodding seem more viscious than it was truly intended.
     "No need," interruped Eldarran, walking out of the shadows by the main archway.
Being Aruaki, she made almost no sound when she walked.  "I'm going to challenge her
to see just how fast she is."  Her golden cat-like eyes gave off a weird glow in the
afternoon light.
     "Fine," replied Marius.  "But you better win or I will never let you hear the
end of it."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I think the fans were a little extreme in suggesting that you go to the Dark
Arena, Prince Jackson.  A little.  But that's the nature of fans.

                                     Bitt Betro

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to VEASTIAN once again!  What's with LIRVENZ?  He actually beat 
VEASTIAN's AMBITIOUS GUARD, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at PHILANTHROPISTS while they watched UMBAR CONN III clobber SENJIRO. 
He lost 2 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for LUROCIAN ROYALTY's outstanding member, Duelmaster PRINCE 
JACKSON.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of VEASTIAN 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.  VEASTIAN 
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
