                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

I suppose I should write a column seeing as how this is my last turn in this arena.
Chock, that was a good try.  Now that I am running my faves (I am not sure why they
are my faves) you should be able to beat me.  Saturn, unless you are retiring we just
might see each other again.  Well, it has been a lot of fun and I wish my teammates
well.  Good luck warriors of Kati-Tei.

Ostrich

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KATI-TEI once again!  Biff!  Pow!  KATI-TEI watched with glee as 
MEDAL OF HONOR 26 got knocked off top spot by BIRDS!  What's with WILLIAM CRAWFORD?  
He actually beat LANGUAGE OF LOVE's GREEK, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at LANGUAGE OF LOVE.  THAI lost 17 points to FALCON.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THAI will provide more easy wins...  CHOCK was 
reminded on the sands why OSTRICH is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some 
rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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, WANDERERS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at BIRDS ain't reelin'!  WANDERERS' mad!  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, GREEK!  Don't make idle 
boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Mike Colalillo -- I am sorry that I had to do that again, but JE said I had to dodge
out of a bloodfeud from someone else.  He also told me that I may not look like much
now, but I will be beautiful some day.  Whatever that means. -- Swan

Thai -- I guess I have to work on my swoop technique. -- Falcon

James Doolittle -- Is that DOCTOR Doolittle, the famous explorer and zoologist? --
Velesten

Ostrich -- You know, it should be EASY to hit you while you've got your head in the
sand, but it doesn't seem to make a particle of difference.  That's peculiar. --
Chock

Soldier 1 -- My momma told me I should be nice to soldiers, but I think she was
probably wrong about that. -- Fritillary

Ah, the Ambitious Guard. -- Quinore

Ostrich -- Congratulations. -- the Wanderers

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
