                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I salute Pit Fighter for having the courage and the dedication to the principle 
of our game which led him to challenge me, but I couldn't let him win.  After all, 
he's a dwarf.

                                        Turagh

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRICORUS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with ROBERT 
PARISH?  He actually beat TRICORUS' CAPTURED ORC, and walked away with 13 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at ALL-UGLY TEAM while they watched WILLIE MCGEE 
clobber GRAPE.  He lost 2 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands. 
Try as he might, M. CHARDINEE wasn't good enough at persuading TURAGH to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!  
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, RONIN!  Management 
must be dealin', as the boys at ALL-UGLY TEAM ain't reelin'!  RONIN's mad!  How well 
I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, HARZOGH!  Don't make idle 
boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  I hate going to the effort of writing about 
the kind of fights that SAM CASSELL gets in.  He fights people like HARZOGH, 10 
points below.  I thought SAM CASSELL showed great skill and promise when he bested 
HARZOGH.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
TRICORUS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
