                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well Bernice, it was a valiant effort, but at least I beat a Fandil last turn...  the
rest of my teammates suck!

My stats for those interested:

9/11/18/17/13/5/11, Expert Init, Adv Experts Decise and Attack.   Favorites are the
Fist, Mod/Mod...

Crappy size, crappy favs, off to retirement.  See ya on the other side.

Big Dope

P.S.  Tank, you get your shot.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARDIVENT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with CUB'S MAMMA?  
She actually beat BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' BINGO LITTLE, and walked away with 18 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE BEARS II while they watched CUB'S 
MAMMA clobber BINGO LITTLE.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  FANDILS' hatred of DEATHTONGUE surfaced again as TANK challenged 
ARDIVENT's top dog.  I'm sure ARDIVENT is excited about TANK, the new Duelmaster from 
FANDILS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters 
with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, INFERNAL LORDS!  In my day, no team with a 275-221-15 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, FANDILS?  What do people see in JACINTHE?  Hers 13-68-0?  
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS ain't talkin', but she's got 107 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Someone told UNCLE BOB that DEATHTONGUE never Bloodfeuded, 
that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  Is 
it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Fandil -- You cagey old man, you took my spot!  Now I have to try to get it back!! --
Technogeek

Wow!  Team on the move two weeks in a row then the humbling bottom team on the move

Shanamanda -- You're such a dancer!  I can't keep up with you. -- Mungo Burke
P.S.  But I enjoy trying.

Izzco -- Infernally competent of you.  As expected.  Damn.  Good fight, I guess. --

nay-say him. -- Tania Park
P.S.  Assuming he can think.

Savage Sugar -- That was amazing.  I was prepared to bean you with a crumpet at the
end, but it wasn't needed after all.  Splendid!  A decent crumpet is hard to find
these days. -- Bingo Little

Perfect!  Bingo is, according to the Commission, low on courage and charisma, buy
highly attractive and sociable.  I couldn't have said it better. -- Jorja

Oh, I say!  Surely not.  I mean, I've as much courage as a fellow needs. -- Bingo
Little

Shanamanda -- Yeah, ain't it great? -- Mungo Burke
