                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, the Shagornan Wild Man.  It's a sad story, and I won't go into it here.  But
there is much to be said on his side, too.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TROCAR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  EXTRADITION were a 
bunch of dogs after STREET-SOLDIERS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st! 
Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna 
be...  Well, SAI FULLAH's 2nd moved them up to 2-0-0 place.  STREET-SOLDIERS showed 
TROCAR what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 5-0-2. 
What's with HELL GIRL?  She actually beat TRADERS OF TROCAR's EMNAR GORIN, and walked 
away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at EXTRADITION.  SOUL MEET 
SUN lost 6 points to SAMILDAR.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SOUL MEET SUN 
will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure TROCAR is excited about MATEEN, the new 
Duelmaster from SAI FULLAH.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, 
STREET-SOLDIERS!  The bums at EXTRADITION couldn't face the challenges from 
STREET-SOLDIERS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in EMNAR GORIN?  His 7-7-0? 
TRADERS OF TROCAR ain't talkin', but he's got 28 points.  KORASIM didn't quite know 
what to make of a challenge he received from LAST OCCASION of EXTRADITION, who is 23 
points below him.  LAST OCCASION perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was 
defeated by KORASIM and ended up with 48 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  EMNAR GORIN of TRADERS OF TROCAR didn't know when to quit.  
When you've got a 7-7-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Is it my imagination, 
or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

Dawud -- Bugs the heck out of me when something like that happens.  I value that
throat and would prefer NOT to have it cut. -- Samildar
P.S.  Which isn't to say that didn't do it well.

Last Occasion -- One can hope. -- Emnar Gorin

First Occasion -- If you say so.  But there will be others. -- Allerdae Chan

Mateen -- Now, that is odd.  I'm a total parry, why am *I* getting the first blow
here?  Not that I wouldn't have minded getting the *last* blow, but the first?
Something a bit odd, definitely. -- Korasim
P.S.  And I'm going to have words with my armorer.

Extradition -- During Ramadan I decided to not shed your blood, and bit my tongue,
but now my fast is over and now my feast begins. -- Blaze

Extradition -- The fast has ended and we are hunger. -- Darkface
P.S.  Make a move and we will end your whole team.
P.S.S.  Don't get scared now, show-up! OR bow-down now.

Sai Fullah -- No one is so brave that he is not disturbed by something unexpected. --
Darkface

Sai Fullah -- Your team is "nothing," the only reason why your team is moving up so
fast is because all the other teams moved on to AD so your team "don't" fear anybody
here, I'm sorry did I say team?  I meant, no-team!! -- Darkface
