                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So here we go.  From a Dark Arena candidate to Duelmaster.
     My manager said that it was nothing personal about the Dark Arenaing, but that
he had a gladiator who had achieved a TV in the dead tournament that is slotted into
my spot on the team and that he wanted to bring him back sooner rather than later.
So he sent me to fight at night.  I won.  So he sent me again.  And I won again.  So
he sent me a third time.  And I won again.  Since our guild by-laws dictate that if
any gladiator wins 3 times in the Dark Arena they are free to fight their way out of
the arena, I was all set.  But I still wanted to be Duelmaster and show him that I
didn't deserve that kind of treatment.
     Here I am, Dark One, &^%$%@ You!!!
     Next stop Immortality!  And then I'll be around FOREVER to rub your nose in
it!!!

     Obliteration
     Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARVAT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, THE WALKING DEAD.  But how many friends do you have now?  Up 'n down.  Up 'n 
down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, SECRET 
SQUIRRELS' 7th moved them up to 4-1-0 place.  Some people say I ramble too much, I 
don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well URT'S DURT URCHINS 
moved up 2, to 1st.  What's with STRYKKER?  He actually beat THE WALKING DEAD's 
BRAINS MCGEE, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
LEGION OF SOULS.  BONE GNASHER lost 14 points to FRANCIS MH.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe BONE GNASHER will provide more easy wins...  ARVAT has a Duelmaster 
who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He challenged THE WALKING DEAD's SQUISHY GIANT 
(15-21-1), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  Try as he might, SQUISHY GIANT 
wasn't good enough at persuading OBITERATION 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...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DRAGON 
RIDERS!  In my day, no team with a 70-64-7 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
DEVIL ADVOCATES?  What do people see in DACIA SANDERO?  Hers 5-5-0?  OTTOMAN EMPIRE 
ain't talkin', but she's got 32 points.  RUE LEROHELL didn't quite know what to make 
of a challenge she received from GLORIA GUTS of THE WALKING DEAD, who is 23 points 
below her.  GLORIA GUTS perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was overcame by 
RUE LEROHELL and ended up with 57 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  HAGOP looked pretty sick and surprised when he 
learned LEGION OF SOULS is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 
5-6-0?  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around 
with a 15-21-1, and OBITERATION easily took care of SQUISHY GIANT.  IRONWOLFE larned 
his lesson (SPYDERMAN taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight 
any SECRET SQUIRRELS members with the same gusto.  SYCAMORE STYLE was plum wore out 
after AKA pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  B.I.G.'ll have to get a little better 
before going after AKA again!  Someone told BIOLLANTE that URT'S DURT URCHINS never 
Bloodfeuded, that it'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

Squishy Giant -- No Column?  Booo!!!  I wrote one, even if it's really plain and
boring. -- Obliteration

Ironwolfe -- I'm being told that I am the one who gets to bloodfeud you.  We'll see
about that.  I'm not keen on fighting newbies.  Not much to learn... -- Rue Lerohell

Urt's Durt... -- Uh yeah...  What happens if you name your warrior Yogurt?  Does he
become Yoguurt?

     Sometimes.

Oscar -- Given enough time I will figure out how to open that can.  A wiser man would
give up, but that is not in-line with my reptilian brain. -- Godzilla

Urt -- Remember that Gilburt hit me first, second, third and fourth. -- Biollante

Ogre -- Nice challenge.  I wish my manager remembered to use that section of the
strategy sheet. -- Mothra

Dacia Sandero -- Thanks for accepting the challenge.  I know it is just a matter of
time before someone puts me in my place, but I am enjoying the moment. -- King
Ghidorah

Tuskan Raider -- It appeared to be an even match.  Perhaps we will meet again, and
perhaps that train will make the difference for you. -- Rhodan

last year by popular request.  Room rates are $145.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which

shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center,

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!
