                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Kung-Fu Master has been a busy boy today.  Lose to my graduating teammate
Forandin, lose to me.  Both of them thoughtful and well-executed losses, too.  I do
like that in a standby.


                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome KATI-TEI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with GHETTO 
DEFENDANT?  He actually beat WRECKING CREW's DOMINATOR, and walked away with 22 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at WANDERERS.  VALARELLE lost 16 points to SAD 
WINGS.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe VALARELLE will provide more easy wins... 
Try as he might, KUNG-FU MASTER wasn't good enough at persuading LORIMINA to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.  The 
most avoided team was WANDERERS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at THE 
PLAGUE ain't reelin'!  WANDERERS' mad!  What do people see in GUNS OF BRIXTON?  His 
4-2-1?  RADIO CLASH ain't talkin', but he's got 32 points.   
     Warriors of KATI-TEI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Yeah, yeah, 
GHETTO DEFENDANT killed DOMINATOR, who was "too young to die."  Well, he was a 
fighter, and that's what you have to face.  GUNS OF BRIXTON larned his lesson (RAISE 
THE ABYSS taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any THE 
PLAGUE members with the same gusto.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
KATI-TEI is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

Templarz Hammerz -- Thank the Gods....  Real fights...ads...spotlights....  Welcome
to our home.  Of course I may regret this in a couple of months if you start kickin
!@#$. -- Reaper
P.S.  Be it ever so humble.....  This is where I got started so many moons ago.

Jorja -- We don't have to fight each other every week anymore!!!!  Not that I don't
love the company, but real fights!!!!  We get three more and we will have to open the
bar again. -- Reaper

Guns of Brixton -- Oh that was close. -- Raise the Abyss
P.S.  See you again real soon <grin>.

OK all stand-ins, the last door on the left is the way out.  Don't let me catch you
in here anymore!!!  We've got five teams and there is no need for us to paint the
floor with anymore of your ilk. -- Reaper
P.S.  I am serious.  I am going to bring back Death's Doorman to fix this....

And the Kung-Fu Master to see me off with a win.  I call that service! -- Forandin

Ah, the Noble Assassin.  We, meaning my teammates and manager, and probably
associates on other teams of the same manager in other arenas, you know how these
things go, have had much to say in the past about the peculiar concept of a "noble
assassin."  I won't go into it now, what's the point of repeating ourselves.  And if
this guy ever was a professional assassin, he's been beat up so many times and so
thoroughly in the arena that he probably couldn't pull it off convincingly now if did
get one-on-one with some kind of target.  He'll probably never kill the president of
Paraguay with a fork.  Wherever Paraguay is.  Sounds like something Karnhorn, doesn't
it? -- Rambling Ox, rambling on and on and....

Trinity Reborn -- What, were you dead?  Well, if you've been resurrected, you need to
get a refund.  It wasn't a good job.  Or make 'em do it over.  Not that I'd bother,
there's nothing wrong with being dead.  Olaf Modeen makes a good thing out of it. --

Sir Knight Hammer -- Eh?  What are you doing HERE?  Shouldn't you be in, I dunno,
Ethiopia or the Pyrenees or maybe Scotland? -- Valarelle

Forandin and Lorimina -- You are definitely improving.  It's about time. -- Gilgor
Hammerfoot, Master of Kung-Foot and Other Arts

Rambling Ox -- I'm not talking to you. -- an anonymous Noble Assassin
P.S.  But I'll see you in the alley tonight.

Eyes that Burn -- That must be quite a hangover you've got. -- Moro Sullogra,
Ambitious Guard

Holy Water Hammer -- That was outrageous. -- Ghost of Zobart Stonecutter, Trustworthy

Lady Grace Hammer -- Huh.  Try to be nice to SOME people, and they just take
advantage. -- Tobie Stone, Friendly Constable

Communion Hammer -- Better.  And you'd better believe it was just luck! -- Zobart
Stonecutter, Trustworthy Scribe

Kati Killers -- You Know You Want To!  Andorian or No!  Hammer Sends His Regards! --

                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....

MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
