                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I would've helped the Convicted Assassin escape the rap, if it hadn't been for
him taking advantage of my momentary distraction over the upcoming Turn Six Hundred
to break my arm.  That kind of thing I do *not* allow.  So he won the fight, but he
went right back to jail, *and* I arranged for a certain little... surprise for him
there.  Basically, he's an ass.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZENSU since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Some people say I ramble too 
much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well BEYOND THE 
PALE moved up 0, to 2nd.  What's with CORMEK DEANE?  He actually beat SERPENTS HOLD's 
NAMAQUA, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
SERPENTS HOLD.  NAMAQUA lost 15 points to CORMEK DEANE.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe NAMAQUA will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, VETERAN 
MERCENARY wasn't good enough at persuading CORBIE LEK to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I 
hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was CAPTAIN PLANET.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
OLDER BY FAR ain't reelin'!  CAPTAIN PLANET's mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
