                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm so honored to be duelmaster once again, I really don't want to leave but I
fear my time is coming soon.  Once again I won't be challenging this turn and I think
I will try some new weapons just to see how adept I am at picking up new things.  I
really like that ole mace though, it feels so comfortable in my hand.
Congratulations to Equalizer and Doom... I think my manager needs to pay more
attention to Duels and less attention to stats.  To all challengers I wish you the
best and really... I won't be heartbroken if you manage to take me down.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARUAK CITY since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  ARUAK CITY 
watched with glee as BULLDOGS got knocked off top spot by ANIMAL FARM!  Some people 
say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  
Well ANIMAL FARM moved up 1, to 1st.  Apparently ARUAK CITY isn't filled with as many 
gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  
IMMORTALS' hatred of CANNIBALZ surfaced again as DRAYTON FLASHSTONE challenged ARUAK 
CITY's top dog.  Try as he might, DRAYTON FLASHSTONE wasn't good enough at persuading 
SERENITY to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.  ARUAK CITY thinks IMMORTALS 
and their 983-1139-79 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at ANIMAL FARM ain't reelin'!  IMMORTALS' 
mad!  DOOM didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she received from ZAPHOD 
BEEBLEBROX of THE HITCHHIKERS, who is 20 points below her.  ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX perhaps 
got his just desserts, seeing as he won victory over DOOM and ended up with 33 
recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

P.S.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Dogmeat -- Of course I don't kill houseplants!  That would be wanton cruelty. --
Corvo Black

Purple Passion -- If you keep letting yourself get worked up like that, you could
have a stroke or something.  It looks like your bloodpressure is already high. --
