                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, here I am.  Not much to say for myself, though I *did* defeat the hairy
little dude from Khalhums.  But I'm still Duel2Dude by Default.  One of you warriors
with a manager who pays attention, get up here and take this title away from me,
okay?  Otherwise, I'm going to have to think of GOOD things to say in a column.  And
I hate heavy thinking.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  CLIFFHOME watched with 
glee as GREYHAWK got knocked off top spot by JINDA-BAN!  What's with GUHULONG?  He 
actually beat CLIFFHOME's M. CHARDINEE, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  WALDO was reminded on the sands why DINGIL BILL 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.  What do people see in 
SHOTGUN! (SO GOOD)?  Its 2-0-0?  WHAT? ain't talkin', but it's got 26 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

How can I owe the Userous Merchant money if I never BORROWED any and I did NOT buy
anything on time payments, either? -- Ballou Ys

Captured Orc?  For why? -- Guhulong

Ballou Ys -- If I defeat the Userous Merchant, does that mean you owe ME something?
