                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is a joke or something, right?  My teammates go messing around losing to
standbys, I win, and I get the title for it?  It's gotta be a joke.  Not that I'm
complaining, mind!

                                  Halgar Snagtooth

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SHANA 
TWO-KNIVES?  She actually beat LIN TIRIAN's KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 11 
more points from the fight.  I'm sure LIN TIRIAN is excited about DANNI ROGERS, the 
new Duelmaster from GIRLS X3.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have... 
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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, SAND DANCERS!  In my day, no team with a 754-886-26 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, GRAVE DANCERS?   
     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.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

The Mum -- My bad on Yarrow, Whirlwind was just in to get his FE in for the mailer
that is coming up.  He will be back on the sands after the mailer.  I will be here
every other turn unless I win free fights, again my bad. -- Liam the Gothe, mgr Grave
Dancers

Jorja -- Hey there, wow when you said Lin Irian was small, you were not joking, the
rest of the guys should be coming in soon. -- Liam

Papa Bear -- Good to see you outside of DM 62.  Killing everything on the sands, I
see. -- Liam

M. Chardinee is a wuss.  Oh, he's POLITE and all that, but he's a wuss.  A pansy
girly-boy.  Not a REAL man.  Why, I've killed better men than him.  Well, I say
"better," but they weren't as polite. -- Messalida

The Venomous Concubine hates me because I laughed at him.  I mean, here's this orc,
all muscles and tusks, you know?  In a pink dress.  What a fool! -- Shana Two-Knives

I never did like this bare-hand kung-fu stuff.  Why fight people bare-handed when you
can use a sword? -- Red Coulter

Devonshire -- Damn.  Too much cream again.  I'm going to have to go on a diet. --
Chelbagheera

We welcome the new teams to Lin Tirian.  If we ever manage to get some replacements
moving, we'll meet you in the rankings. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

     If there were supposed to be more personals here, our apologies.  Hal spent a
     night on the tiles, and we're still trying to catch up with the mail.  They
     should, well, they might appear next time.
