                             Notes from the arena champ.

     No Way?  Or any way at all, eh?  Looks good to me.

                                     Slippery

P.S.  Shortsword?  As if!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome AMEN-TEI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with BRESAL 
BASALT?  He actually beat WAYFARERS' LENNALGIRE, and walked away with 25 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE SUN CULT while they watched BRESAL BASALT 
clobber LENNALGIRE.  She lost 22 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Try as he might, M. CHARDINEE wasn't good enough at persuading SLIPPERY to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
AMEN-TEI thinks WAYFARERS and their 570-610-14 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at DIS-TEAM couldn't face the challenges from 
WAYFARERS!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, CLE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
Taunt your opponent CLE!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  
(and by 16 points!)  DIS-GRUNTLE should have an easy win.  DIS-GRUNTLE defeated CLE.  
DIS-TEAM calls this fighting?  In my day...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Dammit, I'm a gentleman, I couldn't beat up a Virginal Concubine! -- Valnakaur

Cieza de Leon -- Well, I had to do something, and fast!  I'm very fair-skinned, you
know, and I sunburn terribly.  A sun cult is Not For Me. -- Lennalgire

I would not trust such a scribe.  I bet he embezzles and then hides it with a sincere
look. -- M.T. Lane

Ed. -- Well, it wasn't GLUE, I'm sure of that. -- Jorja

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
