                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Who can win eight DM Titles? I can, that's who! Me, Cantex, the absolutely 
mediocre warrior. Yup' that's me!
     What can I write that I haven't said seven times before?  Perhaps I can explain 
what each of The Fandil warrior's names represent?  Sure, why not?

Cantex:      The name of the company that The Consortium's dad worked at for 30+ 
             years.  As a kid, playing in the pipe storage fields and treating a 
             massive sewer pipe as a house was fun.
U. of E.:    University of Evansville Purple Aces, where The Consortium got his 
             undergrad Engineering and MBA degrees.  Did you know that The Consortium 
             went to school with Jerry Sloan, MBA Hall-Of-Famer?
Jodi-Bodi:   The Consortium's first daughter was teased with this name as a child.  
             Her true name is Jodi Ann.
Billy Boy:   What The Consortium and cousins called the hated cousin Billy Purdy as a 
             child.
Army Hills:  A desert, rolling hills-looking Southern Indiana property (hence named) 
             that The Consortium and cousins played Army or Cowboys and Indians in 
             their youth.  (Quite a while ago!)

     Ask me no questions and I shall tell you no lies.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARDIVENT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with CAT 
BURGLAR?  He actually beat ARDIVENT's FRIENDLY CONSTABLE, and walked away with 14 
more points from the fight.  Major screwup at FANDILS.  ARMY HILLS lost 5 points to 
HERETIC.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ARMY HILLS will provide more easy 
wins...  Try as he might, M. CHARDINEE wasn't good enough at persuading CANTEX to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects 
to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
EXOTIC BLADES.  In my day, no team with a 15-11-3 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, FANDILS?   
     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?  
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
