     Much has changed in ALJAFIR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with THIS IS A 
TEST?  It actually beat MIDDLE WAY's GARDNER HEDGE, and walked away with 18 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at QUEENSRYCHE.  LIQUID SKY lost 12 points to 
HORIZEN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LIQUID SKY will provide more easy 
wins...  Har har har!  Did CHARLIE TUNA wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not 
Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for QUEENSRYCHE's outstanding 
member, Duelmaster MINDCRIME.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
QUEENSRYCHE.  In my day, no team with a 28-25-4 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, THE OFFENDERS?  What do people see in GIDJIT HAYES?  Hers 15-14-0?  MIDDLE 
WAY ain't talkin', but she's got 79 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't 
stick around with a 4-33-0, and THIS IS A TEST easily took care of GARDNER HEDGE.  
Someone told REVOLUTION that THE OFFENDERS never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy 
kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  Here's some advice:  study 
your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Oh, good, the Mail-In Tourney results!  It gives me something quick to say here,
because despite my good intentions--I really did have them--we're short on time.
Jorja's been sick all weekend, even though I TOLD her that going out amongst an
afflicted public for something is unimportant as ice cream was a mistake.  So we
salute Prince Albert, tourney victor, and hey, all the other participants, too.  Why
play favorites? -- Gidjit Hayes

And for the regular stuff, we went four-one, which is amazing!  Garret, the dummy,
lost to a Dangerous Criminal, not the usual one--we have an agreement with him--and
that was our only loss.  It'll do, I guess, but I hope old Terregolis gets back soon.
How can we plan for stuff if the Commission keeps ringing in strangers on us? --
Gidjit Hayes
P.S.  Oh, all RIGHT, I guess even a nominal Dangerous Criminal should get a vacation
sometimes, but I don't have to LIKE it.  WE don't get vacations.
