                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, the Veteran Mercenary.  A devastating man.

                                   Vinda Yarro

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JURINE!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with DARTH VADAR?  He 
actually beat SHEWISH BUFFET's GIRL SCOUT COOKIE, and walked away with 23 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at STAR WARS while they watched DARTH VADAR clobber 
GIRL SCOUT COOKIE.  She lost 20 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  I'm sure JURINE is excited about HORSE D'OEUVRE, the new Duelmaster from 
SHEWISH BUFFET.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  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.   
     Warriors of JURINE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Sending a warrior 
to the Dark Arena reminds the others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, CAD BANE.  
That's what a 6-5-0 gets you.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger 
every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
