     This arena is pathetic.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TRICORUS once again!  Biff!  Pow!  TRICORUS watched with glee as 
DARK HORSEMEN got knocked off top spot by RONIN!  What's with SENSEI?  He actually 
beat TRICORUS' EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 10 more points from the fight. 
Major screwup at DARK HORSEMEN.  ZALGEI lost 6 points to MARK MESSIER.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ZALGEI will provide more easy wins...  Apparently 
TRICORUS isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded 
Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  ALL-UGLY TEAM's hatred of DARK HORSEMEN 
surfaced again as WILLIE MCGEE challenged TRICORUS' top dog.  I'm sure TRICORUS is 
excited about WILLIE MCGEE, the new Duelmaster from ALL-UGLY TEAM.  (remember?)  But 
when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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

P.S.  If your manager wants stats, tell him to just ask.  We have nothing to hide but
our inadequacies.

I suppose usery is like thievery and thus proper to Tricorus, but I can't say that I
care for the Userous Merchant. -- Zalgei

It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
