                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I heard--never think I didn't!--my teammates trying to suborn Silisa the Snake
in order to "get me out of here."  They're fools!  Do they think anyone ELSE will
defend the alleys of Mordant?  Do they think Silisa doesn't KNOW that?  She's
counting on me.

                                   Random Maniac

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in MORDANT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with BOSOMY 
GOLDMINE?  It actually beat SERPENTS' HOLD's EEL, and walked away with 31 more points 
from the fight.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for BOOZE's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster WHISKEY.  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...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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
