                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am Duelmaster. I am the proudest, luckiest, and most appreciative Duelmaster 
Ardivent has ever had. Well, our Fandil first two -- Tiger Lily and Sir Smythe were 
mighty appreciative also.) Yep. I take the cake.
     I belong to a team of Fandil rag-tags; let me show you what I mean. Here are our 
composite birth stats:

                                 ST = 9,11,12,13,13
                                 CN = 6,7,8,9,17
                                 SZ = 12,13,14,15,15
                                 WT = 15,15,17,17,17
                                 WL = 9,9,9,17,21
                                 SP = 4,6,10,11,14
                                 DF = 7,11,11,11,15

All that for a pair each of bashers and lungers plus a ripper?
     Here I am on the throne. Come and get me. Let's fight for the highest honor in 
the land.

                                          -- Uncle Leroy, DMI

                                      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 
WRATHMEN got knocked off top spot by DUNGEON CELL!  Some people say I ramble too 
much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well FANDILS moved 
up 1, to 4th.  What's with DEE DAA?  It actually beat WRATHMEN's MATTHEAS, and walked 
away with 23 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at WRATHMEN.  MATTHEAS lost 
13 points to DEE DAA.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MATTHEAS will provide 
more easy wins...  ARDIVENT has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He 
challenged WRATHMEN's FEHEADRAE (12-5-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  
Try as she might, FEHEADRAE wasn't good enough at persuading UNCLE LEROY 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, DUNGEON CELL!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at YOU DON'T SAY! 
ain't reelin'!  DUNGEON CELL's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, FEHEADRAE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     Warriors of ARDIVENT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
