                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well fought, Chester.  Thanks for making my first turn back a memorable one.
     So, what ever happened to Doomcorps?  Where's Uncle Charlie?  Where's Mordraith?
Where's Iver?  Where's Doc?  Granted, I've been gone a while, but I expected at least
some of them to still be here.

                                          -- Khylar

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JHANS once again!  Woof!  MIDNIGHT GREMLINS were a bunch of dogs 
after SERPENTS HOLD got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
STILLMATIC is now ranked 2nd with a 2-0-0 turn.  What's with ALOYSIUS THE BEAR?  He 
actually beat WRATHMEN's KHRYSTEN, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at MIDNIGHT GREMLINS.  SANFORD'S OTHER SON  lost 13 points to 
SIDEWINDER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SANFORD'S OTHER SON will provide 
more easy wins...  Try as he might, CHESTER GRELL wasn't good enough at persuading 
KHYLAR to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, TEMPLE OF STEEL!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SERPENTS HOLD ain't reelin'!  TEMPLE OF 
STEEL's mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
