                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One thing you need to remember, Robert, is that good fences make good neighbors.
How, exactly, that applies here, I don't know, but I'm fairly sure it does apply.
Either that or, "home is where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in."
Grim thought, in its way, but also comforting, knowing that there is SOMEWHERE one
belongs when push comes to shove.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ALJAFIR once again!  What's with ZOMBIE?  It actually beat 
MIDDLE WAY's KAIREEN LAMAR, and walked away with 28 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at ZOMBIE SQUAD 2 while they watched ZOMBIE clobber KAIREEN LAMAR.  
She lost 22 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure 
ALJAFIR is excited about JUNIOR VASQUEZ, the new Duelmaster from WHEN EAGLES DARE.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of ALJAFIR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ALJAFIR is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Candied Yams -- And for defeating you, I get Invited to the Isle.  Damn good thing,
too.  Dealing with candied yams is a major test of the palate and digestive tract. --
