                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

A:  He's the new duelmaster of Kaltos.
Q:  Who is Watson?

     That's right, don't let the artificial brain fool you.  This heap of parts is
now the new top CPU in this town.  I suppose I owe a thanks to 8-Ball for not
fighting last turn.  It made taking the throne far easier.  I've noted some new teams
here in Kaltos.  As we say at Technology, your visual inputs stimulate my sensors
yielding positive synergies.  In human terms that means, it's good to see you.  We
hope you stick around and enjoy the weather here in this fair city.

                                                      Watson
                                                      Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KALTOS once again!  What's with BUZZ KILL?  She actually beat 
THE MIDDLE WAY 5's NOLBER PRING, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  NOLBER PRING lost 15 points to BUZZ KILL.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe NOLBER PRING will provide more easy wins...  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for LONG SWORD CLUB's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
QUARTUS.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  KALTOS is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Watson -- You could at least return earlier favors and teach ME something. -- Just
Losin

Buzz Kill -- Weird.  I heard this buzzing sound in my ears, or somewhere around
there, and then, WHAM!  A mountain fell on me.  I didn't enjoy it. -- Ghost of Riella
True

Iron Giant -- Next time, I'm going to show up with a plan.  All my fans are going to
sit on one side of the arena holding powerful magnets. -- Isobel Kline

Hextor -- You. -- Nolber Pring

And a Convicted Thief to impart a self-satisfied note to the day. -- Newlin Parrit

Jaklak -- Excellent fight sir, but I think you need to work on your cardio.  Less
fatty foods, more fiber-- you know the drill. -- Subprime Rib

Tossed Salad -- I should have known better.  I hope that crit convinces Otto to give
me one more chance. -- Turducken

Lady Godiva -- Aren't you supposed to be naked?  What's with all the armor? --
Gremlin Stew

     But she's naked under it.
