     Much has changed in SUNSET since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Who can explain it?  Not 
you, not me, not DEAD LEGENDS' opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 
15th to 4th.  Hmmmph!  I always thought THE CEREAL KILLERS was an over-rated team and 
they proved it with a 0-0-0!  It seems so recently people were saying OMINOUS REIGN 
was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 1.  I guess they're washed no 
more...  What's with HELLAHURT?  He actually beat RUNEGUARD's ARMINA, and walked away 
with 24 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at PHILTHBALLS while they 
watched UNCLE RICHIE clobber RAZZUL.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Apparently SUNSET isn't filled with as many gutless wonders 
as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 6 challenges this turn!  Another fighter 
(DARK INTENT 19-11-0) challenged another Duelmaster (LEONARD 11-5-0).  Life goes on.  
I can barely restrain my enthusiam for BIG LAKE TERROR's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster DARK INTENT.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BIG LAKE TERROR 
ain't reelin'!  GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS' mad!  IRON BRADEN of PHILTHBALLS knows how to pick 
'em.  He challenged AVE SATANAS of GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS who is up by 23.  Now was this a 
wise move?  IRON BRADEN perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was beat by AVE 
SATANAS and ended up with 3 recognition points.   
     Warriors of SUNSET unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Sending a warrior 
to the Dark Arena reminds the others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, JIMBOTRON. 
That's what a 4-10-0 gets you.  Yeah, yeah, SYFF killed DARK PROMISE, who was "too 
young to die."  Well, he was a fighter, and that's what you have to face.  Someone 
told CUL DE JACK that OMINOUS REIGN never Bloodfeuded, that it'd have an easy kill.  
Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  FORCE OF FIVE's boys should be 
laying low.  Now that FORCE OF FIVE's manager has gone and let PACEBALL 29 kill 
KENNEN unchallenged, FORCE OF FIVE's fighters are fair game.  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.  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Congrats to the grads. -- Green Eyes

                          MAKING YOUR CHALLENGES GO THROUGH

     First, you need to be sure you are making your challenges correctly.
     1.  Are you writing down the warrior I.D. number of the warrior you want to 
challenge?
     2.  Is your handwriting clear?
     3.  Is the warrior you are challenging within range of your warrior?  Warriors 
can challenge within their own class and the next higher class, plus the "Challenger" 
classes can also challenge the next lower class.  So, an Adept can challenge Adepts 
and Challenger Adepts.  A Challenger Adept can challenge Adepts, Challenger Adepts, 
and Champions.  (Try not to challenge down, though.  Besides being unsportsmanlike and 
making everyone mad, it isn't advantageous to your warriors.  They need to fight more 
experienced warriors so they will learn.)
     4.  Are your warriors eligible to make challenges?  If they didn't fight within 
the last two turns, then they can't challenge.
     5.  Are the warriors they want to fight eligible to receive challenges?  If they 
didn't fight within the last two turns, then they can't be challenged.

     Next, adjust your choices for the maximum likelihood of getting your challenges.  
There are several things that will help:
     1.  Have each of your warriors challenge two different opponents from two 
different teams.  That way, if the first opponent's team doesn't fight that turn, you 
still might get your second challenge.
     2.  Use your avoids.  Have each warrior avoid the teams of whoever you think 
might be likely to challenge him.  If you can get out of being challenged, that 
increases your chance of getting your own challenge through.
     3.  Don't challenge warriors who didn't fight last turn.  The odds are higher 
that they won't be fighting this turn.
     4.  Don't challenge warriors who might be involved in a bloodfeud (either as the 
killers, or the avengers).  A bloodfeud challenge has priority over all other 
challenges.
     5.  Don't challenge Tournament Victors.  A TV challenge has priority over all 
other challenges except bloodfeuds.  You'll need to do a little research in back 
issues of the newsletter to find out who the TVs are.
     6.  Don't challenge warriors who you know are going to challenge someone else, or 
are going to get challenged by someone else.  Your challenge has a better chance of 
getting through if it is the only challenge to that particular warrior.
     7.  Don't challenge the "easy pickings."  That is, warriors above you who have 
way too few fights or very bad records for where they are ranked.  They will tend to 
get challenged a lot.
     8.  Don't challenge warriors who are likely to be avoiding your team.  This 
includes any warrior your team fought within the last two turns.
     Well, it sounds like I've eliminated just about everybody, doesn't it?  Of course 
you can challenge opponents who fit into one or more of those categories; just try to 
find ones who don't.  Your idea candidate for a challenge is:  A warrior ranked 
somewhat above your warrior in the same class, or in the next higher class, with a few 
more fights than your warrior, and a winning record, who isn't a TV and isn't 
currently at war with anyone.
     I hope this will be of some help to you.

                                                  The Rogue She-Puppy
