                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well!  At least I edged out Yahoo Wahoo, a true yahoo, for the title.  Don't
know if I can keep it, but I edged him out this time.  Well, actually, it appears
that my departing teammate Worzeel did us this last favor.
     Anybody know why the Victorian Mandarin was bright orange?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TROCAR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  It seems so recently people 
were saying SPARF! was washed up, finished.  But 4-0-0 moved them up 1.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for USELESS TOOLS' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster YAHOO WAHOO.  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.  TROCAR thinks STEEL WOLVES 5 
and their 22-8-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, 
no team with a 20-5-1 would scare me off!  What's the problem, USELESS TOOLS?  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, IGRAINE LE FAY!  Don't 
make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  DYSLEXIC EDITOR of USELESS TOOLS 
knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged LEVANDAR of TRADERS OF TROCAR who is up by 18.  
Now was this a wise move?  DYSLEXIC EDITOR perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as 
he overcame LEVANDAR and ended up with 79 recognition points.   
     Warriors of TROCAR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  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

Hazzan Kazzar -- What a lesson! -- Ferria the Red

Chun Ming -- That was a beautiful parrying exhibition, for both sides.  Still, I'd
much prefer a win. -- Jax Nazareth

Meng Si -- I do get lucky sometimes. -- Asmodeus Asorii

Philosopher -- Upon further contemplation, whaddaya think of that? -- Igraine LeFay

Port Credit -- Oh jeez.  Not on purpose.  See, I'm so used to swinging at an armored
foe... point is, oops! -- Adragar Roon

Dalan Hillei -- It sounds like a date!  We can duel to see who picks up the check. --
Fernia the Red

And a new Duelmaster.  Congratulations from the wolves.

Worzeel -- If I can't beat you, I'm not sure how I can handle the Desert Pearl. --
Yahoo Wahoo

Dalan Hillei -- I leak in your general direction. -- Dissolvable Diaper

Desert Pearl -- Ouch!   I look forward to your pending graduation. -- Victorian
Mandarin

Mei Lu -- What an extended work out session.  I didn't think I could last. --
Livermore

Ingraine Le Fay -- I thought I had you.  Who would have thought a philosopher would
need a little more muscle mass. -- Philosopher

Adragar Roon -- Bid adieu to Port Credit.  His 9-10-10-15-21-12-7 numbers were really
nothing to be inspired by. -- The rest of the Sparf! team.

Lobo -- Yep, if it's a small arena, and only one person is writing personals, it's
probably me. -- Jorja
P.S.  I'll see what I can do about the column, but it probably won't be lengthy.

Fernia the Red -- I *enjoy* being devastated by red-headed women.  Although I could
wish the skills had gone both ways. -- Hazzan Kazzar

Yahoo Wahoo -- Useless, indeed, although to depart on a win is good. -- Worzeel

Qui Gong -- I was losing for a few seconds, but then I managed to strike you, and the
resulting CLANG really woke me up.  Have you considered getting a day job as an alarm
clock? -- Levandar

Dissolvable Diaper -- Hideous thought. -- Dalan Hillei
