                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I have been on this throne seven straight times; more than half a year.  I do
not plan to leave it.  I also do not plan to fight those dastardly Consanguineous
monsters.  I know how to use that avoid slot; it is more useful than the backup
weapon slot.
     I had a lousy tournament as a fully maxed Champion.  Lost to two aimers and a
slasher, but whooped a lunger.  I am hoping to stay up here and stay around long
enough to get a shot at those Challengers in Milwaukee.
     I need more skills!  Opponents, please comply!  But your losing is far more
important.
     I remain,
          Zither DMVII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARKERS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Z GLADIATORZ showed ARKERS 
what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  
What's with ZORK?  He actually beat MIDDLE WAY 11's NORM QUESHA, and walked away with 
21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at Z GLADIATORZ while they watched 
ZORK clobber NORM QUESHA.  He lost 19 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Try as he might, CONFESSION wasn't good enough at persuading ZITHER to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was YOU PAY I SLAY.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at SMITHSONIAN ain't 
reelin'!  YOU PAY I SLAY's mad!  What do people see in CONFIDENCE?  His 26-11-0?  
CONSANGUINEOUS ain't talkin', but he's got 131 points.   
     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.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
