                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hello Aruak, I like the view from up here.  It is about time a Hitchhiker sat on
the throne.  I would like to thank Harline Flete for a shot at the Duelmastership and
all of those nice skills.  You were a good match-up for me, being a Rip learning Wall
of Steel... gotta love it.  I should be around for a few more turns, I hope, before I
take the longboat to the Isle... oops, I hope I did not jinx myself.  The Kiss of Ben
doesn't work in Aruak City, does it?
     A couple of turns back Benjy Mouse was mistakenly sent to the Dark Arena and
Sheila GW had to be called in to resurrect him, thank you, Mistress.  He becomes the
newest member of Deep Thought's rag-tag crew.  Hopefully we can discover the Ultimate
Question to the answer of Life, the Universe and Everything, which Deep Thought
figured out to be... 42.
     I'm very proud to be on top of this venerable arena and I welcome anyone who
wants to come try and take it away from me.
                                            Good Dueling,
                                            Your Duelmaster
                                            Almighty Bob

                                      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.  It seems so recently 
people were saying FURRY FURY was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 0.  I 
guess they're washed no more...  What's with ROSE ROOSTER?  He actually beat 
CANNIBALZ's SIOLAZEELA, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at CANNIBALZ.  SIOLAZEELA lost 15 points to ROSE ROOSTER.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SIOLAZEELA will provide more easy wins...  ARUAK CITY has 
a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He challenged CANNIBALZ's DORA 
(10-10-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  Try as she might, DORA wasn't 
good enough at persuading ALMIGHTY BOB to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was CANNIBALZ.  The bums at COLORIFIC couldn't face the challenges 
from CANNIBALZ!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, CORVO BLACK!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  CORVO BLACK didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from 
BLACK EYE of COLORIFIC, who is 22 points below him.  BLACK EYE perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he defeated CORVO BLACK and ended up with 95 recognition points.  
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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

P.S.  By the fact that you came into the fight with no visible experience but a
ranking of ten, I suspect tourney fights?  Or is it just your forceful personality?
