                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     We couldn't have someone named Koo Koo Kung Foo as duelmaster, could we?  Of
course not.  So I did what was necessary.

                                     Starflower

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in DULLENS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with THONG OF FIRE? 
She actually beat CARDOW HUNTERS' ANVIL, and walked away with 15 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at HARRY POTTER AND THE.  UNEXPECTED SEQUEL lost 12 points to 
WOLFDOG.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe UNEXPECTED SEQUEL will provide more 
easy wins...  Try as he might, TOODLES ENSLAVED! wasn't good enough at persuading 
STARFLOWER 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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

Thong of Fire -- So!  My teammates look down on me in scorn because of my record, but
*I* was the one who revenged your two kills.  And if that dull stick of an
arenamaster hadn't stopped me, *I* would have killed *you*.  I can do that.  I'm
really good at stuff like that.  No, really, I AM. -- Anvil

Unexpected Sequel -- The thing about going around barefoot is, I know what's
underfoot very well indeed.  No tricky footing for me.  So I had a good stance when
we met, and whammo! -- Bearfoot

Scumorama?  Faugh!  He doesn't even taste good.  The "golem" thing, I suppose. --
Wolfdog

I don't know or CARE what the Mordant Salesman had it in mind to sell.  I'm not
buying.  I've got things to do here. -- Laughter Redknife, Returned
