                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It was my duty to Jhelum to take the title.  While Brave 2 is a worthy fighter,
he has no true identity, and he would be unsatisfying in the public relations aspects
of the post.  As the saying goes, and so truly!, it's a dirty job, but someone has to
do it.  That someone, today, is me.

                                     Red Hammer

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHELUM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, TRIBAL COUNCIL.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
SNOWBALL?  She actually beat JHELUM's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 15 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at TRIBAL COUNCIL.  BRAVE 1 lost 8 points to 
GERMAINE SHEPPARD.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BRAVE 1 will provide more 
easy wins...  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for KIWI CONNECTION's outstanding 
member, Duelmaster IRONSIDE.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice 
on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of JHELUM unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  JHELUM is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --
Tripwire

Brave 1 -- Since you weren't up for the title, I felt I could cede the win to you
without regret.  Well, more or less without regret.  At this rate, it will take me a
LONG time to get the political points to retire, and a win--several wins--would have
helped. -- Mat'ari
P.S.  But that isn't your fault.  And tomorrow is also a day.

Crime and Punishment -- BAD!  Bad girl! -- Germaine Sheppard

Snapping Turtle -- Damn.  I wasn't done with those toes. -- Cusster
P.S.  Jorja says she ate a snapping turtle once and found it quite tasty.  The idea
has some appeal.

Da Vinci Code -- Not long, just boring. -- Julian

I suppose we congratulate Diapered Zalgor, even though he is conspicuously not
present. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

And we salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War
