                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hey there, Kaltos.  Glad to be representing your interests from the top.  Next turn
should see the full stable back in action, as we've been taking a slight pause to
align for the mailer.  No extraordinary results anticipated, just trying to get a
little side action in.

Samantha Fox
Party Animals
Duelmaster of Kaltos

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KALTOS once again!  Woof!  SPORTS GREATS were a bunch of dogs 
after THE MIDDLE WAY 5 got through with 'em!  4th ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with 
SUSHIE?  She actually beat I HEART BALLS' SHANNO, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at I HEART BALLS.  SHANNO lost 10 points to SUSHIE.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SHANNO will provide more easy wins...  KALTOS 
has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  She challenged THE MIDDLE WAY 
5's NORLE PARTH (21-24-2), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  Try as he might, 
NORLE PARTH wasn't good enough at persuading SAMANTHA FOX to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  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 I 
HEART BALLS.  The bums at PARTY ANIMALS couldn't face the challenges from I HEART 
BALLS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in GLORIA IMBRO?  Hers 10-6-1?  THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5 ain't talkin', but she's got 93 points.  Keep challenging up 41 points, 
MOUSE DAVIS, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  HOFFA always accepts 
those kind of challenges...  As I expected, HOFFA won MOUSE DAVIS.  Not to start 
anything, but, MOUSE DAVIS, now that you've faced him and seen his style, you might 
try it again!   
     Warriors of KALTOS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
KALTOS 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

It is great to see all these animals and jocks in Kaltos.  I like both. -- Luigi,
Paper Mario Manager

Mr. Rod Laver -- So nice to meet you.  Can I have your autograph? -- Sushi, Paper
Mario

Mr. Mickey Mantle -- Now that you have taken me long, can I have your autograph? --
Twink, Paper Mario

Look for more Paper Marios after the Mailer. -- Luigi

Mouse Davis -- You have served a higher purpose here, which even your lowly status as
a mouse cannot besmirch.  (cough)  No, I can't say it.  It's just so...well, pompous?
Self-important?  Stuck up?  Whatever.  I appreciated the win, I really did, AND the
survival to receive my invitation to the Isle.  Not that I'm going.  I've had ENOUGH
of islands.  I want a mainland, no large bodies of water for miles and miles and
miles.... -- Norle Parth, free at last

M. Chardinee?  They should have LET me bury him in the sand.  What a wuss. -- Gloria
Imbro

The Convicted Assassin woke up disoriented.  Good!  Think how much more disoriented
he would be if his head was separated from his body. -- Ingold Kerr

J. Nicklaus -- Remind me not to shave my head before stepping out into the "sandtrap"
with you.  Ouch! -- Fergus Hill

Lord Protector Norle Parth -- So, you're leaving, too, are you?  Deserting us here...
running away to the mainland.  It takes a strong man to live on an island, and if you
aren't strong enough, well...go, then. -- Arenamaster Troktai

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.
