                             Notes from the arena champ.

    Hail to all of Stormcrowe!  It is so good to sit in the seat that has held the
butts of so many great warriors.  My manager (Sir BlackGuard) is so proud of my
victory that he held a banquet in my honor at the local watering hole.  The drink of
the Gods (or Goddesses) filled the cups of all who entered.  The sweet smell of
ambrosia filled air and not to mention the bar maidens dancing on the tops of tables
and the bar as well.  The event made me want to hold this Duelmaster position as long
as I have fight in this mortal body.  To all, be forewarned that I will not be easy
to unseat.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome STORMCROWE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, NORTHERN LIGHTS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
CELESTIAL ROSE?  She actually beat NORTHERN LIGHTS' AVALANCHE, and walked away with 
44 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at DARQUE FORCES while they watched 
CELESTIAL ROSE clobber AVALANCHE.  He lost 9 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  I'm sure STORMCROWE is excited about YUMALESCA, the new 
Duelmaster from DARQUE FORCES.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     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!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
