                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Fourteen Duelmaster Titles.  That's a lot, and that is it.  The Lady has granted
me Lord Protector status, and it is time for my much needed retirement from
gladiating.  The Monastery has indicated it will gladly welcome me back full time,
and there I shall go.  Prayer and Penance will be my way of life until my dying days.
     Therefore, I will tell you all about my gladiating career...

Notice that I have an aversion to "Bs"?
     One final fight.  May the best warrior win.  Good luck to the next Duelmaster of
The Red Sands.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARDIVENT once again!  Biff!  Pow!  ARDIVENT watched with glee as 
DEATHTONGUE got knocked off top spot by FANDILS!  What's with KEELBACK?  It actually 
beat FANDILS' MILDRED LEONA, and walked away with 25 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at FANDILS.  MILDRED LEONA lost 14 points to KEELBACK.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MILDRED LEONA will provide more easy wins...  Try as she 
might, ROSEBUD wasn't good enough at persuading BROTHER JEROME to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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, DEATHTONGUE!  The bums at FANDILS couldn't face the challenges from 
DEATHTONGUE!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in OLIVER?  His 11-11-0?  
DEATHTONGUE ain't talkin', but he's got 89 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ARDIVENT is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

Anchorman -- Once again you have proven too much for me.  A salute to your skilla! --
Earl

Bingo Little -- Not only are you too much for Brother Jerome, you are too much for
me.  Can't you take pity on a poor little old lady? -- Mildred leoma

Visiting Orc?  I lost to Visiting Orc?  Woe is me!  I am now 2-3 against NPCs?
Perhaps I am going about this all wrong? -- Yvonne

Marci Foote -- Hello and thanks. -- W. D. Purdy

barely, this time. -- Technogeek

Lila Deane -- Oh oh, I have heard I'm being retired. -- Hoo Boy

Brother J -- Man, I am so glad you finally got that last skill, you huge load.  Grats
on the invite and stuff, but I won't miss you at all. -- Rosebud

Katerina -- Interesting fight, was very close. -- Fran

Mildred Leona -- I can tell you're somebody's sister, old bean, and it was enough to
make me throw a bun at you.  But I didn't have a bun, only a sword.  Sorry about
that.  A bit drastic, what? -- Bingo Little

Fran Bran -- I've never liked you.  Your name always reminds me of things I'm
supposed to eat "because they're good for me."  Bah. -- Katerina Collin

W.D. Purdy -- Why not go after that highly suspicious Financial Scribe? -- Marci
Foote

Elmo -- Euwh!  I can't stand all that blue fire curling from your ears and your
mustache! -- Mollie Scot

Hoo Boy -- I thought it was an owl calling when they announced the fight.  Guess not.
