                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, last turn made the throne 'mine'.  By this, I address Chaos's claim that he
wanted 'his' throne back.  You held it for two turn, now I for three (and hopefully
four, or this humble pie will taste a bit less sweet).   Of course, you do tend to be
the popular chap!  On to other issues.  A hearty welcome to the Warlords, and a
welcome back to Carolina Blue.  Stick around a while, Folks, our little town could
use ya.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TROCAR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Hmmmph!  I always thought OF WOLF 
AND MAN was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  What's with 
DEMIMONDE?  She actually beat JANIX's SNIR, and walked away with 25 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at JANIX.  SNIR lost 11 points to DEMIMONDE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SNIR will provide more easy wins...  TROCAR, set your 
sights on GURTARGAN MONK.  He'll be happy to entertain all requests after defeating 
DANI.  XYCO looked pretty Duelmasterlike as it took TROCAR's top spot with 81 points. 
Now, what will DANI do?  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I 
hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, EYE OF THE STORM!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at JANIX ain't 
reelin'!  EYE OF THE STORM's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, CHAOS WARRIOR!  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 XYCO 
gets in.  It fights people like CHAOS WARRIOR, 10 points below.  I thought XYCO 
showed great skill and promise when it subdued CHAOS WARRIOR.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of TROCAR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Yeah, yeah, 
BASTINADO killed TEMP, who was "too young to die."  Well, she was a fighter, and 
that's what you have to face.  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

Blackstorm -- Did I avoid you?  Well, yes--but only two guys.  Sheesh, you'd think I
was about to move out of town or something.  I'll chalk it up to a good managerial
style.  Let's see if Xyco got his challenge through.... -- Kat (Mgr. Janix)

Myopia -- Temp wasn't trying to hack at you in quite that way.  Blame his exotropia.

I battle stand in Wild-Eye Fanatic for the title?  What, none of you guys want it? --

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
