                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Kallie, you gave it a good try, but the weight of my experience was
against you.  Unless you have tourney fights?  Just curious.

                                      Delange

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TRICORUS once again!  What's with TURAGH?  He actually beat 
TRICORUS' CONVICTED ASSASSIN, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at DARK HORSEMEN.  ZALGEI lost 8 points to RUNAWAY JIM.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ZALGEI will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, 
KHALUHUMS DWARF wasn't good enough at persuading DELANGE 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.  The 
most avoided team was DARK HORSEMEN.  In my day, no team with a 466-564-15 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, AMAZON ELITE?   
     Warriors of TRICORUS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  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

I wish I could feel that four-oh turn meant something, but when three of the fights
were against standbys....  (sigh)  Okay, it means SOMETHING, people can lose to
standbys--mine especially--but not a heck of a lot. -- Nick, Dark Horsemen

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I
can be contacted at:

Ladies and gents...get your teams together and join in on the hottest and fiercest
contest ever to grace the arena sands!  Intrigue, personal wars, you name it...we got
it going on!  What is this contest?  It's the Turf War IV in DM 47, North Fork!!
This fantastic contest was begun by my alliance mate Asmo Dius, and I've picked up
some of the slack.  Contest starts on Turn 225 (approx. date June 9th?).  It's an
"alliance-type contest", so grab your folks and bring them in for a bang up time.
Rules will be printed in the DM 47 newsletter at least until the contest starts. --
