                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, there's a graduation a long time in coming.  And the commission rewards
patience, as Fat lips starting 9-8-8-11-21-6-21 produced a Fist favourite with a
LO/LO rhythm while learning defence skills.  He picked up 41 skills during his time
here, 13 of those defence, with 11 attack, but he learned poorly, even for an 11 wit
warrior.  That results in Master Attack, Adex Defence and Expert Parry, but mostly
mode in those, with a modest +1 in Defence.  His last Fratsfan fight will be by
torchlight. I'm sure we will have another deserving duelmaster here again next turn.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome FRATSFA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  IRON CATHEDRAL were 
a bunch of dogs after OTTO'S PARTS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with STAND IN?  He actually beat IRON CATHEDRAL's WARRIOR X, and walked away 
with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at DRAGONS GUARD II while they 
watched STAND IN clobber WARRIOR X.  He lost 14 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  FRATSFA has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  
It Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's STONE GOLEM (0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) 
interesting.  STONE GOLEM was reminded on the sands why FAT LIP is Duelmaster.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     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, WAH CHING!  In my 
day, no team with a 90-105-10 would scare me off!  What's the problem, OTTO'S PARTS?  
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, URSILA RILVAR!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Fighting is a better craft 
than farming, WEI YAN, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by MALICE, 16 
points above you, is dues.  MALICE beat WEI YAN.  IRON CATHEDRAL calls this fighting? 
In my day...  TEMPER of IRON CATHEDRAL knows how to pick 'em.  She challenged LEIA of 
DRAGONS GUARD II who is up by 18.  Now was this a wise move?  TEMPER perhaps got hers 
just desserts, seeing as she was bested by LEIA and ended up with 77 recognition 
points.   
     Warriors of FRATSFA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Hmm...  More 
surprises must remain in store for me, if FAT LIP can return from the Dark Arena.  
WHERE AM I?'s boys should be laying low.  Now that WHERE AM I?'s manager has gone and 
let SUN QIAN kill SPECTRAL OSSUARY unchallenged, WHERE AM I?'s fighters are fair 
game.  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?  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

Congrats to Fat Lip, now get off of my throne! -- Malice

Leia -- GRRRRRRRRR! -- Temper

Dragons Guard II -- Now that sure was an interesting rating! -- DD

We congratulate Fat Lip. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Yep, just like I expected, another clean-sweep turn, this time an oh-fer.  Balance is
important, or so they tell me.  I'm not sure I like THIS balance, but it's the one
we've got. -- Ursila Rilvar
