                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ron Burgundy, nice try.  Valiant attempt but not quite enough.  Good luck in
your future endeavors.  Well, it was fun while it lasted.  Now I'm off to the Isle.
Here's what I look like:  11-10-8-21-17-10-7, am init, ae rip ma att, ma def, ma dec.
Naturally adept with ls, favor h/h lunge tactic, learn decisive.  As far as strategy
goes, when it came time for attack location my mgr would take one look at my stats
and just tell me to hit "the other guy" and hope for the best. *grin*
     Shelly Ann, it seems only proper that I give you your chance at the title.  So
step on up and let's see what you've got.

                          Domination

                                      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 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS got knocked off top spot by 24 HOURS OF DOOM!  Ya gotta be quick 
on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  24 HOURS 
OF DOOM is now ranked 1st with a 4-1-0 turn.  It seems so recently people were saying 
AZURE CLOUDS was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 0.  I guess they're 
washed no more...  What's with MAY?  She actually beat ARDIVENT's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, 
and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at YOU DON'T 
SAY! while they watched OOO OOO OOO clobber UNCLE JUNIOR.  He lost 16 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  SHELLEY ANN was reminded on the sands 
why DOMINATION is Duelmaster.  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.  
ARDIVENT thinks AZURE CLOUDS and their 71-61-3 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 68-60-3 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, FANDILS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, MARCI FOOTE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  I 
hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that NO NAME gets in.  
It fights people like STORM, 9 points below.  I thought NO NAME showed great skill 
and promise when it bested STORM.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of ARDIVENT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

Domination -- A salute to you again.  How little Kharadmon knows, eh?  You are
apparently neither too old nor too fat to be a champion Duelmaster.  Would you like
to transfer to an arena team where you will be appreciated?  (wink) -- Fandil The
Wise

Slugbait -- Running?  Wish I could, but I am too old and my three-time replaced hip
precludes running.  (sigh)  But I am thinking and planning and enjoying the 1-3. --
WOF

Arlene Ross -- Close!  Very close.  But I am glad you get to be blue; not me. --
Irvin (Swirvin' like the dickens)

Veteran Merc -- Always love it when you fill in.  Thanks for the skills and the win.
-- Shelley

Joubert Klee -- You animal!  Wow!  Too much for me!  Salute. -- Snuffy (interpreted
and improvised to the common language)

Dew -- I needed that!  A WIN!  Wowser.  Thank you, thank you, thank you! -- Uncle
Junior

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

Fandil -- Well, it was probably, um, Mercury Retrograde or something like that.
Yeah, Mercury's the messenger, and if he went backward, your messages to the
Commission got lost.  That's gotta be it. -- Jorja
P.S.  Actually, I have no idea whether Mercury was retrograde recently, but it does
sound good, doesn't it?

Blue Note -- Ah... I don't have anything like perfect pitch, you know. -- Arlene Ross

Slugbait -- Well, darn.  I liked fighting Rock. -- Arlene

Vi Orange -- You're too modest.  You could be a winning woman if you tried. -- Long
Biggar

Our congratulations to Domination. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Black Bile -- A hot toddy before bed every night takes care of stuff like that. --
Marci Foote
P.S.  Cider vinegar, honey, and a shot of whiskey, served warm.  Good for what ails
you.

Irvin -- You were swirvin' all over the place, and I couldn't lay a blade on you. --
Arlene Ross

P.S.  That "wounded in the left knee" business?  Jorja says that may be directly
responsible for the flare-up of her arthritis, and she's annoyed.  Well, annoyed
hardly covers it, she's incredibly cranky these days.

The Cook Messed Up -- Right, I get that it isn't your fault, but you can't seriously
expect me to EAT that.  What does the Cook call it, a tallow-burger? -- Long Biggar

What Water? -- If you don't know, how should I? -- Corbin Ross

Snuffy -- Do you moonlight in Dullens as the standby Snuffy the Kittycat?  Just
curious, not disapproving.  I know how hard it can be to make ends meet. -- Joubert
Klee
P.S.  And there you have a telling comment on the modern economy, too.  Whatever
happened to looking for ends to overlap a little?

Long Biggar -- Very nice tip!  Come back and I'll show you my appreciation. -- The
Cook Messed Up
