                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It was with the greatest pleasure that I devastated The Count.  Not, mind you,
because Black Tom was always griping about her, no, because she NEEDED to be
devastated, and I needed the title, fairly won on the sands.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  SAND DANCERS were 
a bunch of dogs after DOMINATION got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
SHEWISH BUFFET showed LIN TIRIAN what they were made of as they fought with a 
vengeance to walk off with 3-1-0.  What's with JORGEN THORFIN?  He actually beat SAND 
DANCERS' KURTAL DUCK, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at J.  THE COUNT lost 7 points to ROGAR THORFIN.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe THE COUNT will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure LIN TIRIAN is 
excited about RALTUMAN OMELETTE, the new Duelmaster from SHEWISH BUFFET.  (remember?) 
But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects 
to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of LIN TIRIAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Some people 
are wondering why SHEWISH BUFFET sent ARADI BOLOGNESE (6-1-0) to the Dark Arena.  
Just be glad you're not on their team.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
