                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     She assured me that she's Devrie Scatha, Concubine Out of Favor, and not
Venomous at all.  But the way she talked about her former associates, well... I can
see where the nickname came from.  I wouldn't want to make an enemy of her, she's
probably more dangerous than a Convicted Assassin.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KALTOS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Some people say I ramble 
too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5 moved up 0, to 2nd.  What's with IMA SLAYER?  He actually beat 
TECHNOLOGY's TIK-TOK, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at TECHNOLOGY.  MAGOG lost 8 points to SAIRY WELLS.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe MAGOG will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, VETERAN 
MERCENARY wasn't good enough at persuading JUST LOSIN 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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, U PAY I SLAY!  The 
bums at TECHNOLOGY couldn't face the challenges from U PAY I SLAY!  No excuse for 
that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, NOLBER 
PRING!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Personals for dm 5

Assur -- You're just saying that because your dog died. -- Nolber Pring

Horse -- It was a good try.  I didn't change strategy or anything.  But experience
does matter. -- Nolber Pring

Iron Giant -- Vicious describes you very well.  You're probably a barbarian, too. --
Newlin Parrit

Tik-Tok -- That wasn't luck, it was bloody-minded determination. -- Isobel Kline
P.S.  Next time, *I* get to do the bloody-minded determination.  But the skills
should help.  Some.

Ima Slayer -- Not yet, and I'm glad of that.  Gladys of East That?  Interesting how
you can twist words, isn't it? -- Sairy Wells
