                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, three Titles for Snuffy, giving him enough political points, and three DM
Columns for me at teensy pay.  That Fandil can be a slavedriver at times.  (He says
he is fostering my career.  I say he is taking advantage of me.  Me--I am The Fandil
Publicist, aka Snuffy's ghostwriter.)
     If I m not getting paid much, then I am not writing much, so I will gve you a
short tidbit--the current Fandil birth stats.  (I would include WOF's stats, too, but
he is so old that, well, let's just say Methuselah had little on him.)

     There you have it.  It looks like Snuffy and Jimi Hendrix will fight one more
time for the title and Snuffy is liking it since he is 5-0 against Jimi.  Will my
column and statements jinx him?

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARDIVENT once again!  Woof!  WRATHMEN were a bunch of dogs after 
FANDILS got through with 'em!  4th ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with BLIND OWL?  He 
actually beat FANDILS' FLEETWOOD, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight. 
Laughs were big at THE 27 CLUB while they watched BLIND OWL clobber FLEETWOOD.  He 
lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged THE 27 CLUB's JIMI HENDRIX?  That sort of initiative is how he 
got where he is now.  I'm sure ARDIVENT is excited about JIMI HENDRIX, the new 
Duelmaster from THE 27 CLUB.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  The bums at FANDILS couldn't face the challenges from BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in JIMI HENDRIX?  His 14-15-0?  
THE 27 CLUB ain't talkin', but he's got 118 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Congrats to Lord Protector Jimi Hendrix.  We Fandils feel like we own a piece of you.
-- Fandil The Wise
P.S.  Will it be you and Snuffy AGAIN for a final fight?

Eternity -- I wasn't willing to wait, but it surely felt l o o o o n g!  I needed the
win, and it was a quite enduring one. -- Fleetwood

Slayer -- Take that for the killing of my teammate.  And that and that and that! --
Sadie

Robert Johnson -- Yuh got in muh way un I done whooped yuh! -- Snuffy

Wrathmen -- I hope your Inits prospered in The Mailer. -- WOF

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

Having saluted those who fought in the summer Face to Face, I wonder how long before
we can salute those who fought in the autumn Mail-In? -- Jorja

We congratulate Jimi Hendrix. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Jimi Hendrix -- Good trick, getting out of here with only thirteen wins!  Go for it.
-- Tria Skathach

The Kung-Fu Master broke my fingers! -- Fingers Brooke, rethinking his name

Blind Owl -- If YOU are blind, how come *I* didn't see you coming? -- Luiza Klu

Exxon -- Why do I have oil all over everything?  How am I going to get it OFF? --
Rocksock Jones

That wasn't quite the kind of friendship I expected from the Friendly Constable, but
I suppose it will do. -- Hereford Jones
P.S.  My mother never mentioned me being a golem.  I never knew till the Commission
told me.  I don't like that kind of surprises.
