                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, the Veteran Mercenary was a good match for me, and he even taught me two
skills.  What more can a gladiator ask?

                                    Red Coulter

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome LIN TIRIAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with MESSALIDA? 
She actually beat LIN TIRIAN's VETERAN MERCENARY, and walked away with 14 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at SAND DANCERS.  SHANA TWO-KNIVES lost 10 points to 
VENEMOUS CONCUBINE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SHANA TWO-KNIVES will 
provide more easy wins...  KHALHUMS DWARF was reminded on the sands why RED COULTER 
is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear 
some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of LIN TIRIAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have 
I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  LIN 
TIRIAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

That Venomous Concubine is a *****!  She fouled me! -- Shana Two-Knives

Oddly enough, I believe Shana was nearly correct about the Venomous Concubine.
Frankly, I didn't think the truth was in her. -- Chelbagheera

No Convicted Assassin is going to beat ME. -- Messalida

I dunno what my teammates are getting all upset about.  I found the Concubine quite
pleasant. -- Halgar Snagtooth
