                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Somehow, I never expected to become duelmaster by default and defeat of a
Convicted Assassin.  I see why we can't have an assassin as duelmaster, not the right
image at all, but... ME?  Well, maybe this will be the route to graduation for me.
That would be good.

                                   Ferrin Mondor

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KOLACT once again!  What's with TROG?  She actually beat BACON 
MAKIN''s TREMORS, and walked away with 25 more points from the fight.  Major screwup 
at BACON MAKIN'.  WILD THINGS lost 19 points to KAMIKAZI KIM.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe WILD THINGS will provide more easy wins...  Apparently KOLACT isn't 
filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 
challenges this turn!  ABOMINATION's hatred of THE MOONDOGS surfaced again as CAPRICA 
challenged KOLACT's top dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for ABOMINATION's 
outstanding member, Duelmaster CAPRICA.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BACON MAKIN'! 
The bums at ABOMINATION couldn't face the challenges from BACON MAKIN'!  No excuse 
for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Terrine Orbine -- All my politician named characters die within 3 rounds so I guess
you're right. -- Chase (mgr. of Abomination)

Animal House -- Got you that time. -- (Fat Girl) Thong...err Trog

Tremors -- I'm so nimble on my feet, liked that 1st dodge didn't you?  How is it I
beat you and your still rated higher than me? -- Censorship

Footloose -- Thought I had you; now someone else has the throne.  Damnit!  I'm 0-2
vs. you.  Wanted a re-match but you're gone now.  Congrats on graduating. -- Caprica

Frost/Nixon -- You again?!?  Four fights and it's all vs. TPs.  Glad I get a break
until the tourney. -- Batiatus

Firefox -- OUCH!  Careful w/ that thing, Little John. -- Dora T. Explora

Bonnie -- Good point. -- Batiatus

Jorja -- And punching them really hard makes the whole thing worse. -- Chase (mgr. Of
Abomination)

Bonnie -- Clubbed!  Ouch.  I suppose it was a good fight, from your side. --
Eutherine Planeda

Clyde -- You Clubbers are really going to town, aren't you? -- Deimoon Farr
P.S.  I wonder why "going to town"?  You're already IN town.

Grip -- Ah, apparently it's membership in that Club that confers victory over us, and
you aren't a member.  Or, of course, it could be my masterful ability. -- Iayelle
Orbin

Shem -- Excellent!  My first victory, and one I can be proud of.  My thanks. --
Monzar Orbisar
P.S.  I wonder if I started out with that weapon or just picked it up along the way?
