                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My master plan worked!  By hiding my potential opponent's newspapers in the
bushes, they spent so much time looking for and retrieving their paper that they fell
behind schedule and didn't make it in time for the fights last week!  And so, here I
am, completely undeserving, sitting on the throne of Solven!
     Who would have guessed it!?!  Most people think newspapers as we know them are
going to disappear from the face of the Earth.  But until they do, I will have a job
and I'll trade tips for the throne any day of the week.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SOLVEN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with LOVE OR CONFUSION?  He 
actually beat MAULS LOCAL 457's MAULT LIQUOR, and walked away with 26 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at MAULS LOCAL 457.  MAULT LIQUOR lost 9 points to 
LOVE OR CONFUSION.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MAULT LIQUOR will provide 
more easy wins...  NOBLE ASSASSIN was reminded on the sands why IN THE BUSHES is 
Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
MEDIEVAL CHAOS.  The bums at B.B. NEWSBOY couldn't face the challenges from MEDIEVAL 
CHAOS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in FARLIN MEEKS?  His 14-21-0?  
MIDDLE WAY 15 ain't talkin', but he's got 63 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
SOLVEN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI--please make your reservation by 
December 15 before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and 
people have been unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the 
tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all 
looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
