                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh how I long to leave this arena and not in the death wagon either.  But, it
might take a while since I'm not the most skilled of warriors.  Last turn Tria
Skathach learned a rating I don't have and maybe even more skill then I have.  It
might be a long time till I leave.  So I'll hang onto this crown for as long as I can
to get those political points.
     On a side note, slugbait has never had 2 warriors go 1-0-1 in their 1st fight on
the same turn.  The joys of blood feuding.  Can not wait.

Black Bile

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARDIVENT once again!  Woof!  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS were a bunch of 
dogs after AZURE CLOUDS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  It seems 
so recently people were saying THE 27 CLUB was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved 
them up 0.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with JOUBERT KLEE?  He actually 
beat FANDILS' SNUFFY, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at BLUVALLEY WARRIORS while they watched JOUBERT KLEE clobber SNUFFY.  He 
lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, 
RON BURGUNDY wasn't good enough at persuading BLACK BILE 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, THE 27 CLUB!  The bums at FANDILS couldn't face the challenges from THE 27 
CLUB!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, ARLENE ROSS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
Maybe BASH BROS. WAITRESS' WHAT WATER? is one of those gals who likes pain, or 
something.  That's what she'll get next week, after challenging up 31 to ANTI-LEAP 
YEAR.  Sometimes what you expect to do (like in the fights) doesn't expect to turn 
out like you thought.  WHAT WATER? defeated ANTI-LEAP YEAR.  It don't make sense.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Jorja -- Now your black, snowy-rooftop-patter, basement entry, ingenious floozy is my
kind of babe! -- Swirvin Irvin

A salute to Black Bile, Duelmaster of The Red Sands.  My favorite design, too! --
Fandil The Wise

Anti-Leap Year -- Cut it out!  You are anti-Junior, too, aren't you? you are cruel!
-- Uncle Junior

Jimi Hendrix, ye old coot, the jam were fun, the win be funner. -- Snuffy

Blood Orange -- Not the match I wanted at all, a man of your skill and experience,
but I will take the luck.  Oh, yes, I will always take the luck. -- Leroy

Joubert Klee -- I would have an even record if it wasn't for all those losses you
gave me.  Don't take it out on me that Jorja has a black cat intruder.  That's a good
thing! -- Irvin (battered, sore, unswirvin', and considering filing suit)

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- WOF

You don't say -- Expect your blood feud. -- Slugbait

Tria Skathach -- I'd almost bloodfeud you again since you have better ratings than I
do.  But, I won't. -- Black

Leroy -- I should have beat you.  Oh wait, you're part of the consortium.  Never
mind. -- Orange

Fred -- In cycling lingo, you're a tool. -- Cirrus

Kurt Cobain -- You are one mean customer. -- What Water?

     Better than being two mean ones.

Slugbait -- Well, I know.  I just got carried away. -- Tria Skathach

Our congratulations to Anti-Leap Year. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Black Bile -- Ouch, etc. -- Tria Skathach

Irvin -- Bad cat!  NOT the couch, please. -- Joubert Klee

Jim -- Would you call me vicious?  I thought I was just, um, firm and determined. --
Corbin Ross

And a couple of standbys.  Good. -- Arlene Ross and Fingers Brooke
