                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, heck, I hate it when I take or hold, or anyone else takes or holds, the
title on a loss to a standby.  It seems so...wussy.

                                      Forluitha

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ROCANIS once again!  What's with OVERIT?  He actually beat BAD 
APPLES' MALUS S'PROUT, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at GET while they watched OVERIT clobber MALUS S'PROUT.  He lost 1 points 
and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  RIRORNI SPY was reminded on the 
sands why FORLUITHA 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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BAD APPLES!  The bums 
at GET couldn't face the challenges from BAD APPLES!  No excuse for that!  What do 
people see in MALUS S'PROUT?  His 3-2-1?  BAD APPLES ain't talkin', but he's got 12 
points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

Doom from the South?  Nobody told me I'd be fighting a DOOM.  I'm not trained for
that kind of thing!  I'm too young and innocent to be Doomed! -- Buck Fever

I guess it's a good thing nobody lets the Rirorni Thugs out there with really GOOD
styles.  This'n was a dangerous enough fellow, and I was glad to put him on the
ground. -- Sourcrab
P.S.  And for that matter, glad to be able to kick sand in his face.  Dratted Rirorni
Thug!

Back -- Farther, please.  Such as, all the way into a different fight. -- Malus
S'Prout

Kinda funny watching the Ambitious Guard keeping a stiff upper lip in the face of,
well, maybe not PROVOCATION, but definitely it wasn't easy for him.  (snicker)
Mostly I resist the urge to play dumb practical jokes on people, so low class and I'm
trying to go up in the world and all, but sometimes...some people just ASK for it. --
Hawthorn

Overit -- I would be glad to, but nobody, and I do mean NOBODY, around here lets us
forget the darned war.  If y'all would stop treating us like captured enemies and
start treating us like citizens, you might be amazed at the difference it would make.
-- Halrhuzoi, Rirorni Archer

Hawthorn -- The use of thorns under my armor was low.  Do it again and you'll be
surprised what I can come up with in retaliation. -- Crozio Malone, Ambitious Guard

Sourcrab -- Did you hear that steward call me a NOVICE?  Mitori!  I'll get him for
that, and if you'd like a piece of him, drop on by the Vile Keg after dark. -- Red
Muzgol, Rirorni Thug

Buck Fever -- Whine.  Squirm.  Beg.  You are mine. -- Doom From the South, Mark V

Forluitha -- It is only the great unfairness (no surprise, we have long known what
Alastarians are like) of the Commission that has prevented ME from taking the title I
so properly earned.  I thought to direct my chastisement at you, but it is not your
fault that you are an inept gladiator and the Commissioners are biased.  So I will
let you go with a warning...this time.  Cross me again and you may die. -- Koveg
Firespitter, Rirorni Saboteur
