                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Fare you well, Debarrows.  I knew that as a Lord Protector, you didn't really
need the win this time, and that *I* did need it.  And, to be honest, I was lucky.
Have you considered the irony of our respective styles and races?  I can't help
thinking it should be the other way around!  One of the mysteries of life, I suppose.

                                    Blue Funk

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZUKAL.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave CRIMSON DEATH a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  BLUE MOON is now ranked 4th with a 2-3-1 turn.  What's with WATSON?  She 
actually beat RED FURY's STING, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at SERPENTS HOLD 3.  TERM lost 11 points to THE TALL MAN.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TERM will provide more easy wins...  Apparently ZUKAL 
isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 
challenges this turn!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for SERPENTS HOLD 3's 
outstanding member, Duelmaster FANG.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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, CRIMSON DEATH!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at RED FURY ain't reelin'!  CRIMSON DEATH's 
mad!   
     Warriors of ZUKAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

shave you close.  But you didn't hold still!  Hard to do with a moving target. --
Wilkerson
