                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Q Mark asked me a question, and I don't do questions, you know.  But this time,
I was SURE it was "Where are my slippers?"  And I *knew* the answer to that one.  I
had them.  Well, one and a half of the two.  Very tasty.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARADI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with BALKO DUNN?  He actually 
beat UNNAMEABLES' ANON, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at UNNAMEABLES.  ANON lost 12 points to BALKO DUNN.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe ANON will provide more easy wins...  TICK ... TOCK was reminded on 
the sands why SLIPPERS is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of ARADI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some advice: 
study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
