                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I didn't expect to find myself here last week.  Avery challenged Stonebow, but
somehow the Gladiatorial Commission lost his registration, so when we showed up to
fight he was denied.  Avery is a bit annoyed, but I think it's a bit like when you
miss a ship and then find out the ship sank.  Maybe Stonebow would have killed Avery.
Who knows.
     With only you, Stonebow, and my own stable mates crowding the top, looks like
you've got a shot to get your throne back next week.

Morgue

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in MALCORN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with HONEYSUCKLE?  
She actually beat RAINBOW CONNECTION's STEVE, and walked away with 15 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at MALCORN while they watched VENOMOUS CONCUBINE 
clobber MIYAMOTO.  He lost 27 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  See how the Duelmaster challenged GREENWARDENS' STONEBOW?  That sort of 
initiative is how he got where he is now.  I'm sure MALCORN is excited about 
STONEBOW, the new Duelmaster from GREENWARDENS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as 
many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  MALCORN thinks DARK 
CREATION and their 403-350-21 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up... 
The bums at TERMINUS couldn't face the challenges from DARK CREATION!  No excuse for 
that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, STONEBOW!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Fighting is a better craft 
than farming, TERRASQUE, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by AVERY, 
29 points above you, is dues.  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, 
AVERY!  He can't set himself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see TERRASQUE lose.  
     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.   
     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

Quasil -- That was fun, maybe we'll do it again sometime. -- Pot of Gold

Esrever -- I'm always worried when I start a fight by pausing to regain my strength,
but I couldn't fail my adoring fans. -- Jim

Silver Ghost -- Nice turn around, thought I had you there for a min. -- Steve

Bobcat -- My friend Jim told me it ain't easy being green, so don't worry all cats
are grey... in the dark. -- In The Dark

Pot of Gold -- Cardio.  It's all about the cardio. -- Quasil

Qreated -- I'll admit it, I caught a lucky break there. -- Varick

Kallista -- Concubine mine.  I kill man like M. Chardinee. -- Miyamoto

Morgue -- You want me to be... a headstone?  I don't think so! -- Stonebow
P.S.  I'll carve one, but not for myself.  That'd be asking for trouble.

Swordmage -- And sometimes, the bear gets you. -- Sourwood

Steve -- Excellent fight!  A win and four skills for me, there isn't much more I
could ask. -- Silver Ghost
P.S.  Us ghost types are self-centered, you know.

Skittles -- Amazing you can even move, you are so awkward.  Is it the skitter-bug, or
too much beer? -- Honeysuckle

In the Dark -- I've got cataracts, okay? -- Bobcat
P.S.  You wouldn't expect me to have dogaracts, would you?

Quasil -- That's teammates for you.  Jealous and petty. -- Stonebow
