                             Notes from the arena champ.

     If I thought they'd actually let him take the throne, I would have GIVEN it to
the Convicted Assassin.  He's just about what this pest-hole deserves.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRICORUS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with HANNAH?  She actually 
beat DARK HORSEMEN's TSOMEGH, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at DARK HORSEMEN.  TSOMEGH lost 14 points to HANNAH.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TSOMEGH will provide more easy wins...  Another fighter 
(CHRISEIS 25-12-1) challenged another Duelmaster (REIDI 12-9-0).  Life goes on.  I'm 
sure TRICORUS is excited about CHRISEIS, the new Duelmaster from AMAZON ELITE.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  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 the most challenged warrior, TSOMEGH!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of TRICORUS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  HAROCH, with his 
forgettable 2-7-1,  was killed by WOLVERINE in a forgettable match.  DARK HORSEMEN 
didn't seem to mind very much.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
