                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Hello, everyone.
     Just wanted to start off by saying sorry I haven't written anything before, DM
rants, spotlights or even just personal ads.  Four week timetables are weird for me.
I get all excited when the turn comes in thinking I have way too much time till next
turn runs.  Then all of a sudden it's a rush to express mail or fax in turns without
any time for the rest of the stuff.  Just so you know, I am the quiet type.  Not
going to proclaim how great I am, real or imagined.  Or be an attention whore and
make it all about me.  Like to observe and keep my comments to myself.  Of course,
that doesn't really fit well with so few teams playing.  So I will try to make
something written each turn.  It's only fair as I can't be selfish and enjoy everyone
else's raves and rants without contributing also.

Albert, congrats on the DM throne even if it's a couple of turns late.  Great to see
you win and even better with the FE disadvantage.  Tian Hu was... average in my
opinion.  You will see for yourself.  Trout and Kiwi Connection II... sorry for your
death.  It wasn't a fair fight FE wise and probably not the best style match up
either.  I expected Cao Zheng to get another NPC.  For some reason he kills fairly
often but only 2 kills on NPCs.  AB are hard to lose especially with some fights
invested.  With Deng Fei and Tian Hu graduated and hopefully Cao Zheng out soon this
arena should be more "balanced."  I am sorry for hogging all the top spots.  Not
really from skill or great fighters but from just more FE.  I feel like a bully even
though it isn't my intention.  Now for the fun stuff.

Deng Fei 19-9-4
good endurance/good damage
Master in parry and initiative
Ad expert attack
short sword favorite moderate/moderate parry learn
lost original paperwork 20 years ago so no idea on total learns

Tian Hu  18-7-2
good damage
Ad expert decisiveness>
Expert initiative, riposte, attack
great axe favorite moderate/low decisiveness learn
lost paperwork on all my warriors 20 years ago

I wrote an intro for myself in Snowbound arena 50 team spotlight last turn or two
ago.  I guess if you are really curious why this team that started from turn 1 shows
up 20 years later is here you can look up that newsletter.  These guys are my first
Duel Master along with my first graduated AD warriors.  I'll be running them in 100
where I fully expect to not win a single fight for at least 15 turns.  They are
average, maybe even a bit shitty.  But they are my first so I will run them
because... I guess because I never ran AD before.  Feel free to pound them into the
ground for being such bullies in this arena.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TROCAR once again!  Woof!  ASIAN INVASION were a bunch of dogs 
after TRADERS OF TROCAR got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's 
with ALLERDAE CHAN?  She actually beat ASIAN INVASION's QIONG YING, and walked away 
with 10 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at ASIAN INVASION.  QIONG YING 
lost 6 points to ALLERDAE CHAN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe QIONG YING will 
provide more easy wins...  VENOMOUS CONCUBINE was reminded on the sands why CAO ZHENG 
is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear 
some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  TROCAR is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Allerdae Chan

Qiong Ying -- Nope, it was NOT Allerdae's style.  It was her skills... or lack
thereof.  Ouch. -- Worzeel

Tong Pak Fu -- You Asian guys don't give an inch, do you?  Not that you should, I
guess, but still.  Good fight. -- Levandar
P.S.  They tell me I "needed" that loss, but I'm not seeing it.  Lots of people
graduate undefeated these days.  I figure it's an effect of Small Arena Syndrome, you
