                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My career is likely coming to a quick close.  Two Bloodfeuds, then off to what
will likely be my final tournament.  While it isn't impossible for him to change his
mind, Assur has said I will retire upon graduation, with my final fight in the Dark
Arena.  So maybe 3 more fights total in my career.

-- Defiance

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in CLIFFHOME 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, SOUL WARRIORS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
JINDA-BAN is now ranked 1st with a 3-2-0 turn.  What's with JUNKER?  He actually beat 
CLIFFHOME's MORDANT DESERTER, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  
See how the Duelmaster Bloodfeuded JINDA-BAN's SOLDILLIA VRO?  That sort of 
initiative is how he got where he is now.  SOLDILLIA VRO was reminded on the sands 
why DEFIANCE is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  What 
do people see in SOLDILLIA VRO?  Hers 14-8-1?  JINDA-BAN ain't talkin', but she's got 
78 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  SOLDILLIA VRO larned hers lesson (DEFIANCE taught 
it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any BASH BROS CHILDREN 
members with the same gusto.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  
You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

Assur -- Yeah, we know.  Watch 'em climb the ranks, get a fight or two from
graduation, and then some careless hotshot comes along and cuts off a promising
career.  It's happened all too often to us, as well. -- Jorja

Two-three, and Junker lost to the Mordant Deserter.  The shame!  And HE doesn't even
feel it as such. -- Mendarlin Voro
