                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Again John Huston, which just PROVES my contention that he's part of a
conspiracy to GET me and my teammates.  If I were crazy, I'd say that my repeated
victories over him mean I can't be got, but I'm not crazy, and I'm going to keep
watching him.  He's a menace!

                                  Not-A-Nut Jones

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TRANSEL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with AUSTIN 
NORDELL?  He actually beat PSYCHO SQUAD's AMY NESIA, and walked away with 21 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at PSYCHO SQUAD.  AMY NESIA lost 17 points to 
AUSTIN NORDELL.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe AMY NESIA will provide more 
easy wins...  JOHN HUSTON was reminded on the sands why NOT-A-NUT JONES is 
Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was PSYCHO SQUAD.  The bums at BALTO couldn't face the challenges 
from PSYCHO SQUAD!  No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Ha!  Nurnin the Unlucky indeed! -- Happy Harriet

Upper Deck -- Listen, you have to give us a chance to get straight on this.  I say an
UPPER deck is Emma's problem, and she says it's MINE.  Once we get this worked out,
we'll shuffle you good. -- Eve, and also Emma

Orson Wells -- I hope a Martian comes along and sucks out your brains.  If you have
any. -- Amy Nesia
P.S.  I'm pretty sure that's the kind of thing Martians do.

This Sir Lyrin Preskane isn't very impressive, is he?  I couldn't possibly bring
myself to cringe for HIM. -- Chas Cringer

26 July 2010
     Some managers have attempted to send personals and columns to hal, and hal has
been refusing to acknowledge their content.  I don't know what hal's problem is,
specifically, but for best success, send PLAIN TEXT (dot txt) in the body of the
email.  Not attachments.  Thank you. -- the Editor

POSTED:  Arena recruitment effort, DM 32, Arvat -- seeing as our arena Participation
has dwindled in recent months, we're offering the following incentive to any new
teams looking for a new home arena.  We will GIVE a Free Rollup to any manager
willing to agree to fight in Arvat for the next 10 turns.  We have a number of VERY
solid arena teams stockpiled, and while we don't promise tournament godlings, we are
certain we can come up with teams with 3, 4 or even 5 solid arena warriors to start
out with.
     In addition we'll honor any no-challenge requests by relatively new managers to
help you get off on the right foot.
     If interested, please contact the Devil Advocates via Diplo or contact
theDarkOne via IM on the www DOT reality DOT com site.  We will even give a choice of
teams available if requested.
