                             Notes from the arena champ.

     If I hadn't already been in a bad mood, M. Chardinee would have put me there.
The NERVE of that guy!

                                    Panama Oats

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ERINIKA once again!  What's with MRALISSA LOON?  She actually 
beat ERINIKA's VETERAN MERCENARY, and walked away with 6 more points from the fight.  
M. CHARDINEE was reminded on the sands why PANAMA OATS is Duelmaster.  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.   
     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!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  ERINIKA 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
