                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is such an honor to be given the title of Duelmaster.  I just do my job as I
can and someone tells me that I'm the new Duelmaster.  I certainly don't understand.
I will say that the feasts they give are better than the left overs we get at work.
So I'm well fed and happy and this turn I have to try and serve up Shelley Ann.  I
hope she tips well, because while parties and and speeches are all good and fine,
they don't pay the bills!

The Cook Messed Up

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARDIVENT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  ARDIVENT 
watched with glee as 24 HOURS OF DOOM got knocked off top spot by AZURE CLOUDS!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  FANDILS is now ranked 2nd with a 3-1-0 turn.  Some people say I ramble too 
much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well AZURE CLOUDS 
moved up 1, to 1st.  Welcome to ARDIVENT, EXOTIC BLADES!  We need more teams who can 
get a 3-0-1 their first time out!  What's with VIOLENT ORANGE?  She actually beat 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' MARCI FOOTE, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at EXOTIC BLADES while they watched ETERNITY clobber FUTTERBINGER.  
He lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Another 
fighter (SHELLEY ANN 9-9-1) challenged another Duelmaster (THE COOK MESSED UP 7-2-0). 
Life goes on.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for FANDILS' outstanding member, 
Duelmaster SHELLEY ANN.  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, SERPENT'S HOLD!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at AZURE CLOUDS 
ain't reelin'!  SERPENT'S HOLD's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, NO NAME!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  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

Joubert Klee -- Snuffy The Kittycat inna Dullens?  Nope, it hain't me.  Or usn's.
Not nobody we know.  Nope.  But I be likin' kitties, tho. -- Snuffy

Jorja?  Arlene?  Artritis flare.  Yeah, we know that one.  But Old Fandil has been
worse off these past two weeks--great pain, opiates, back and leg intense pain, can't
really do anything, lower back herniated disc, looking like the knife. -- The Fandils
P.S.  We say poo to him!  He'd know REAL pain if he had to be a gladiator like us.

Yep.  Mercury Retrograde.  That was it, Jorja. -- Fandil The Wise (chuckling)

The Cook Messed Up?  Seems only obvious for The Red Sands.  Kudos to The Champ and
Duelmaster.  (and to BAssur--my new knickname for Assur) -- WOF

Hah!  Beatcha, slugbait!  I love a good 0-0! -- Fandil The Wise (with a wink)

Ooo Ooo Ooo -- Ouch, ouch, ouch.  That tournament run did you well. -- Uncle Junior
(feeling the pain)

Domination -- I salute the outgoing Duelmaster and my better. -- Shelley Ann

Joubert Klee -- Between me and you, we got The Fandils an only win this round.  How
cool is that? -- Clara Rose

What Water?  What?  Well, that hurt me confidence. -- Irvin

The Cook Messed Up -- Yes it is true that if I have gotten to you, I will have used a
different than normal strategy for you.  Aren't you pleased? -- Shelley Ann

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands Await. -- WOF
P.S.  So does that dadgummed herniated disc!

Long Biggar -- How you didn't spend a long time in the infirmary or that your bill
wasn't to much biggar then last time. -- Violent

Storm -- Well you sure teach useful skills.  Yikes -- No Name

Corbin -- All ever fight are the BluVally Warriors.  Well at least the company is
good. -- Black Bile

Fandil -- Still 1-3.  Even with a bum hip you're ahead. -- slugbait

Foote -- I'll take the whiskey. -- bile

Fandil the Wise -- Thank you for the offer, kind sir, but I must decline.  Granted
that my manager leaves a little to be desired at times... but I'll stick with him. --
Lord Afector Domination

A little to be desired, eh?  How would you like to be dressed in Plate fighting with
a war flail the next five fights. -- Kharadmon

Shelly Ann -- I kinda like this toad sticker. -- Domination

Trustworthy Scribe -- Maybe you should consider just writing about the fights rather
than participating. -- May

     I wish! -- Findiellisthin, Licensed (Trustworthy) Financial Scribe

Friendly Constable -- I didn't do it!  I've got an alibi.  Go shake down someone
else. -- Futterbinger

Friendly Constable -- That's right.  I did it.  Now what are you going to do about
it? -- Rastus

I was most challenged?  What FOR? -- Marci Foote

We salute the tourney participants, especially Aeon.  Will we be seeing this Exotic
Blade here on the sands of Ardivent? -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

The Cook Messed Up -- Well, yeah, I know that happens.  But did you have to SERVE IT
to me?  Couldn't you just have suggested I try across the street? -- Marci Foote

Violent (Viola?) Orange -- It was probably the orange bows in your beard.  I was
fascinated by 'em, couldn't pay attention to the fight itself, and lost. -- Long
Biggar

Black Bile -- So, hmm.  Changes in the diet are indicated, but WHAT changes?  No
whiskey, I suppose.  Maybe cut down the red meat.  What else is too good to be good
for me?  Ah!  No broccoli or cauliflower! -- Corbin Ross

Clara Rose -- A sudden onset of chivalry, that's got to be it. -- Joubert Klee

That Constable puts a much too personal interpretation on the "Friendly" part of his
title. -- Arlene Ross

Irvin -- A thirsty one you are.  I couldn't turn around without you asking for more
water.  Maybe you are used to people waiting on you hand and foot, but I have other
customers to serve.  Be patient next time. -- What Water?
