                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I find you annoying, Floyd Castaway.  The Commission calls YOU Rirorni, and ME
Kannar!  That is just wrong.  I am Rirorni through and through.  You... I'm not sure,
but even you are Rirorni, you shouldn't be called so as a CONTRAST to me.  Hmm.  So
really, it is the Commission that I'm MOST annoyed at.  And in that, of course, I'm
in the company of most gladiators and managers at one time or another!
     There's a lot of grim irony in this life.

                                   Grim Laughter

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of DULLENS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with IRONHAND?  He actually 
beat ARCANE ROYALTY's FLOYDRIFFIC, and walked away with 11 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at DULLENS while they watched KOO KOO KUNG FOO clobber FLOYD 
CASTAWAY.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
MICKEY HANDS was reminded on the sands why GRIM LAUGHTER is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it 
be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the 
uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
