                             Notes from the arena champ.

     "Are you ready?" I heard my manager ask.  I looked up and nodded.
     "Remember what we practiced.  Focus and rely on your instincts," Karadmon said.
     "Are you sure this is going to work?" I asked.  "I'd feel more comfortable
relying on my usual strategy."
     "We've been over this.  Trust me.  He's faster than you, but if you do as I've
instructed you'll have a better shot at beating him," the dark elf explained.
     "What do the odds-makers think my chances are?" I asked.
     Kharadmon hesitated, then replied, "One in four, but that's to be expected after
losing to him last cycle.  Now go out there and show the crowd why you're their
favorite."
     As I walked down the tunnel I could already hear the crowd.  At least I had
their support.  I took a deep breath and exhaled slowly as I walked out to my
position in the center of the sands.  My opponent was approaching and my thoughts
were racing.  Relax, focus, and breathe.
     As Kung Pao approached I met his unwavering gaze with one of my own.  He strode
toward me with the grace and confidence of a seasoned veteran.  As he reached his
position and stopped, he gave me a nod.  I returned the nod of respect and smiled
slightly.  His eyes lit up and he returned with a grin of his own.  We both turned,
saluted the Arenamaster, then turned back to face one another.  Relax, focus, and
breathe.
     The signal to begin was given.  Immediately he struck.  Damn, he was fast!  I
was unable to react quickly enough and he drew first blood.  He quickly followed up
with a second attack, but this time I was ready.  Instinct took over as I quickly
sidestepped and found my opening.  Achieving the knockdown, I didn't hesitate.
Attacking again while he was unprepared to defend.  My aim was off but the blow
connected.  The Arenamaster signaled the fight was over.
     Reaching down, I offered my hand to Kung Pao.  He accepted and I helped him to
his feet.
     "Well fought," he stated.
     "Thanks," I replied as we headed off the sands.
     "No, it is I who should be thanking you," he said with a smile.  Noticing my
perplexed expression, he continued.  "I can finally relax.  Do you know how much
pressure is involved with trying to maintain an undefeated record?  Especially while
holding the throne?"
     "I hadn't given it much thought," I answered.
     "Well, the pressure is off me now, but you on the other hand..." he said with
that mischievous smile of his, "see you soon."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of AMEN-TEI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with BRITNEY?  She actually 
beat WRATHMEN's ANDREW, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at WRATHMEN.  ANDREW lost 15 points to BRITNEY.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe ANDREW will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, M. CHARDINEE 
wasn't good enough at persuading OHMYGOD to step down from the Duelmaster's throne... 
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, WAYFARERS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at BAD GIRLS ain't reelin'!  WAYFARERS' mad!  
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
