                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah...  My plan came to fruition...  Avoid the heck out of that robot freak Trust
Buster and then sneak into the title once he moved on.  Fortunately I was JUST able
to sneak ahead of Kami Flague and got the title by one point.
     Normally getting the title by stealth instead of by fighting skill would bug me
some, but I had no chance to beat Trust Buster, so I'll have to take what I can get.
And even better, one win and I'll get my invite and be out of here.
     Not a lot of challenge options--Kami, Sampson and Brains look like it...  So I
think I'll challenge Kami and Brains and see what happens.  I've beaten Brains, but
never fought Kami.  Should be an exciting turn.
     On the negative side, I'm spending all week clearing machinery and computer
components out of the Duelmaster's office.  Trust Buster was here a while and
apparently was making himself comfortable...  Not so comfortable for me, though.
     It's a lot of work, but hey, I'm a parry riposte and these days, we're used to
uphill battles.
     Catch you all next turn Arvat.  Maybe I'll have more to say!

     Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARVAT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, DRAGON RIDERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought LOST LEGENDS was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 1-3-0!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  CALL THE PRIEST is now ranked 9th with a 2-3-0 turn.  It seems so recently 
people were saying DEVIL ADVOCATES was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 
5.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with EURYDICE TROYER?  She actually 
beat CALL THE PRIEST's STEELER, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at OTTOMAN EMPIRE.  CHALUPA BATMAN lost 11 points to SMOOTH OPERATOR.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CHALUPA BATMAN will provide more easy wins...  
THE WALKING DEAD's hatred of DEVIL ADVOCATES surfaced again as BRAINS MCGEE 
challenged ARVAT's top dog.  Try as he might, BRAINS MCGEE wasn't good enough at 
persuading DEVLIN DE SEGIZE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was SECRET SQUIRRELS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at DEVIL ADVOCATES 
ain't reelin'!  SECRET SQUIRRELS' mad!  What do people see in SQUISHY GIANT?  His 
12-19-1?  THE WALKING DEAD ain't talkin', but he's got 92 points.  Maybe LEGION OF 
SOULS' HAGOP is one of those guys who likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll 
get next week, after challenging up 26 to RUE LEROHELL.  I don't get it.  HAGOP goes 
and challenges RUE LEROHELL, way above him, but gets 4 points after he loses!  Is 
this a new strategy?  Keep challenging up 26 points, SOULCATCHER, and I won't have to 
write about you much longer.  BLOOD RED SKIES always accepts those kind of 
challenges...  SOULCATCHER found one way to advance:  challenging BLOOD RED SKIES and 
losing, but getting 3 points.  No brain, no pain.  Maybe THE WALKING DEAD's GROUND 
CHUCK is one of those guys who likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next 
week, after challenging up 27 to DEEP FREEZE.  Sometimes what you expect to do (like 
in the fights) doesn't expect to turn out like you thought.  GROUND CHUCK subdued 
DEEP FREEZE.  It don't make sense.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  And this week the Duelmaster--whoops!  B.I.G. has one week 
left to avenge B.A.D.'s death by excessive hits on the part of GROVER of DEATH BY 
DESIGN.  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?  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

Devlin -- Congrats. -- York/Tolbin

Firmament -- Please continue for those skills I'll risk it! -- Frey

Drogon -- Let's try that again. -- Cu Chulainn

is...  How come a slasher has a better parry rating than I do??? -- Rue Lerohell

Trust Buster -- Good bye and good riddance! -- Angels & Devils (And especially Muffy)

All -- Hope Arvat had a great tournament! -- Angels & Devils

out of here. -- Secret Squirrels

Call The Priest -- Welcome back to the sands and may you make many a manager call for
a priest. -- Gentleben and Secret Squirrels

have to kill all your guys to do it. -- Gentleben

Ghost of Runeclaw -- I thought you would have been a little more resilient than
that... my bad. -- Oprah Tive

Vade -- That was a vade vade idea. -- Kami Flauge

Grover -- How's life in the trash can? -- Smooth Operator

All -- I hope everyone survived the tourney, we would hate to miss the opportunity to
kill you our selves, seriously, hope everyone did well and we got lots of TV
challenges to throw around. -- Gentleben and Secret Squirrels

Scribble--i.e. Scribe -- How about a list of manager names for those that are new
here?  I make it no secret that I run Secret Squirrels...or do I? -- Gentleben
