                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     First, I'd like to thank all my fans.  Without your support I'd still be working
as a checkout boy at the local grocery store.  I'd like to thank my agent, without
whom I'd be stuck on some bottom duelling team.  I'd like to thank my beautiful wife,
my wonderful kids, my agent Martha, and my mother.  *music starts playing*  Most
importantly, I'd like... I'd like *music louder* all the warriors that keep losing to
me...  *music drowns out further comment*

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ZUWAYZA once again!  What's with AVERAGE JOE?  He actually beat 
THE MOTHERSHIP CC's PORK CHOP GOLEM, and walked away with 19 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at PARKS AND REC while they watched AVERAGE JOE clobber PORK 
CHOP GOLEM.  He lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
MAN OR BEAST?'s hatred of LORDS INC. surfaced again as BULL HALSEY challenged 
ZUWAYZA's top dog.  Try as he might, BULL HALSEY wasn't good enough at persuading SIR 
BLUEBELL to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  ZUWAYZA thinks THE 
MOTHERSHIP CC and their 35-22-3 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  In my day, no team with a 34-18-3 would scare me off!  What's the problem, MAN 
OR BEAST??  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, POCKET 
NEWS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  PAXTON of VISIONS V2 
knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged SIR SMASH of LORDS INC. who is up by 24.  Now 
was this a wise move?  PAXTON perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was 
overcame by SIR SMASH and ended up with 28 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Someone told THE DUELIST that VISIONS V2 never Bloodfeuded, 
that she'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  
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.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Sir Bluebell -- And you were, yourself, a fascinating study.  I would be delighted to
observe you--from the stands--at any time! -- Pocket News

Lady Lovelace -- You do not appreciate the deeply scientific nature of my work, I
see.  I am not surprised.  It has been determined by rigorous studies that frontal
bumps tend to draw off the energies that would otherwise go to the cerebral
prominences.  A sad situation, but doubtless there is evolutionary sense behind it.
-- Modern Phrenology

Garret Stages Starvation Protest!  Critics Confused!  What Is the Secret Story? --
Pocket News

Hugs-N-Kisses -- That is so embarrassing!  That MY house should be turned into a... a
"hotbed" of loose behavoir!  How can I endure this? -- House Beautiful

Quick Hit Harry -- Ah, your bump of receptiveness need a little adjustment.  I was
pleased to administer it, and to prove the success of the technique by teaching you
two skills.  Very good.  The sketch artist will be along after the fight to make a
rendering for my article. -- Modern Phrenology

Dottle -- THAT was a true crime, if you will!  That *I* should be defeated by
incompletely carbonized remains in the bowl of a pipe!  The ignominy! -- True Crime

Eybee Skrewd -- Yes, well, I didn't mean to kill you, but you shouldn't have tempted
me with that name. -- The Duelist

Gravitron -- Bery impressive.  Enjoyed the show. -- Sir Bluebell

Walter Pideon -- Did you enjoy our dance as much as I did? -- Lady Lila
