                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So either the commission has employed cleaners to keep this throne spotless or I
will be the very first individual to take paint on it.  Either way, I will greatly
enjoy this new surface and be sure to leave my mark!  Congratulations to Ursila
Rilvar.  I've enjoyed our bouts.  You're are a fine opponent.
     I hope that my graduation comes soon.  Should be 6 PPs away so holding the
throne would bring me to the edge.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in FRATSFA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  FRATSFA 
watched with glee as THE CHOSEN ONES got knocked off top spot by WEATHER!  Some 
people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I 
ramble.  Well WEATHER moved up 1, to 1st.  What's with RAIN?  She actually beat 
MIDDLE WAY 8's TONIO SALAGAZA, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at FREEDOM FARCE while they watched CAPTAIN AAA clobber SLEET.  He 
lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged MIDDLE WAY 8's URSILA RILVAR?  That sort of initiative is how 
he got where he is now.  I'm sure FRATSFA is excited about URSILA RILVAR, the new 
Duelmaster from MIDDLE WAY 8.  (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!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
BASH BROS ROAD SIGN.  In my day, no team with a 36-32-0 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, WEATHER?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, TONIO SALAGAZA!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
COSMIC FRIES of FREEDOM FARCE knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged ELLIS TATE of 
MIDDLE WAY 8 who is up by 20.  Now was this a wise move?  COSMIC FRIES perhaps got 
his just desserts, seeing as he was defeated by ELLIS TATE and ended up with 43 
recognition points.   
     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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Jorja -- The purpose of my offer to exchange diplos with other players was to appear
social and approchable.  Sometimes players perfer more interaction for whatever
reason.  You are right that a friendly diplo is more likely to get a positive
repsonse. -- Weatherman

Greatsword, low, very low?  That is SOOO not me! -- Ursila Rilvar

Two-one this time.  I got the loss, but since I'm LEAVING, I find don't care all that
much.  Retirement for me.  Low, very low?  Ridiculous. -- Ursila Rilvar

Cosmic Fries -- Delicious!  Especially with the honey-mustard dipping sauce. -- Ellis
Tate

Fog -- Good thing I had my fog lights and my hearing-ear bat along, isn't it? --
Tonio Salagaza

Sleet -- Now that is a dirty trick.  Conditions so harsh that nobody can view me. --
