                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Valiant effort, guys.
     Here is hoping I don't get invited this turn, so I can fight in the Champs at
the FtF.

Baby on Board

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TALCAMA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Some people say I ramble 
too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well SHEPHERDS 
moved up 1, to 3rd.  What's with DAN?  He actually beat CENTER FOR OLDS' COCKEYED 
UMBRELLA, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
CENTER FOR OLDS.  COCKEYED UMBRELLA lost 10 points to DAN.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe COCKEYED UMBRELLA will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, 
KILL KITTEN wasn't good enough at persuading BABY ON BOARD to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was SHEPHERDS.  In my day, no team with a 813-945-41 would scare me 
off!  What's the problem, CENTER FOR OLDS?  What do people see in FROG ZOMBIE?  Hers 
2-1-0?  UNDEAD FROGS ain't talkin', but she's got 51 points.  I hate going to the 
effort of writing about the kind of fights that GURGLES gets in.  She fights people 
like FROG ZOMBIE, 12 points below.  I thought GURGLES showed great skill and promise 
when she won victory over FROG ZOMBIE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!  
     Warriors of TALCAMA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Who will dare 
fight HARBOR MASTER, after she returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 16-5-1 
is 123, and has she points) 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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

I'm just looking forward to a city with an actual harbor! -- Harbor Master

Harbor Master -- Closer than I would have guessed, but in the end, you win the
rubber. -- A's Special Blend

Gurgles -- The only thing that shocks me is that you don't choke more often. -- Ruth

Slippery Mickey -- Apparently favorite weapons are not the end all / be all things
that I was led to believe. -- Dan

Baby On Board -- One last ditch effort...  Should the commission grant it, Ruth has
prepared a strategy which gives her a chance to mar that perfect record you sport.
Unfortunately, I'd need a Vulcan Scientist to calculate what that little tiny
percentage chance actually is.  And last I heard, Vulcan Scientists don't work in the
fields with Shepherds. -- Assur

     How elitist that is!
