                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, this is certainly unexpected.  I'd like to sound confident in holding the
throne, but I look at the likely challengers and see a bunch of warriors who have
already bested me and one who I think is a bad match-up for me.  Ah, well, I will
prepare as always and hope for the best.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with DEADLY 
FORCE?  He actually beat SAND DANCERS' CLAWS OF NIGHT, and walked away with 18 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at SAND DANCERS while they watched JADE LOTUS 
clobber IRON HANDED.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for SAND DANCERS' outstanding member, 
Duelmaster WINTER ROSE.  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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  JADE 
MOUNTAIN 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

Jade Lotus -- Hmm, I didn't expect to be quite so prophetic.  I guess this is the
only way I can fight effectively. -- Nareen

Ko-Hain -- I think I'm glad I got the jump, I don't think I want you hitting me with
that thing. -- Melrose

Guardsman Tan -- Nothing personal, but I'm glad that was you, with your Lord
Protector style immortality, rather than some poor soul trying to achieve that. --
N'Kessa

Our congratulations to the long departed Samurai, tourney victor. -- Jorja and the
Sand Dancers

Nareen -- Well, it's true that the BEGINNING of the fight was exciting.  But by the
time we got to the end, it was exhausting. -- Jade Lotus

Iron Handed -- May you rust! -- Winter Rose

Deadly Force -- I'm not having any of THAT here. -- Claws of Night
P.S.  Unless it's me exerting it.

Melrose -- A woman with your looks will always be devastating. -- Ko-Hain

Grape Ape -- Grape JUICE! -- Stone Hammer
