                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ack!  The Rabbit wanted me to do a column this turn I have no clue what to talk
about.  So I guess I'll point out that I've been running on maintenance for the last
year, and RR wanted me to mention just how pathetic it is that none of you can find a
way to beat a warrior that does the same thing every fight.  Plus add in the reason I
haven't received my invite and it's even worse, did any of you realize that I only
have 1 rating?  So just in case RR forgets to post my stats here they are for your
enjoyment 17(1)-17(3)-7-3-20(3)-7-21(1).  For the record I'm old as dirt and have 2
TVs to my credit.  My 1st TV was in Apprentices in Baltimore when Gateway/Primus had
the FE bug, and RR was invited to join BoB.  From RR's conversations with Assur I
should receive my invite at 40 arena fights (and be RR's 1st AB to graduate), so one
way or another I should be out of your hair in 4 turns, and on my way to a career as
a perpetual Freshmen in tournaments.

Kill Kitten, Duelmaster of Talcama

                                      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.  What's with SLIPPERY 
MICKEY?  It actually beat SHEPHERDS' RUTH, and walked away with 13 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at CENTER FOR OLDS.  COCKEYED UMBRELLA lost 4 points to 
AARON.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe COCKEYED UMBRELLA will provide more easy 
wins...  Apparently TALCAMA isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  
The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  Try as she might, GURGLES wasn't 
good enough at persuading KILL KITTEN 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.  TALCAMA thinks CENTER FOR 
OLDS and their 1371-1319-78 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
The bums at SHEPHERDS couldn't face the challenges from CENTER FOR OLDS!  No excuse 
for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
