                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I hesitated when I faced off against the Venomous Concubine, and she nailed me.
Defintely had a poison of some kind on her blade, I couldn't seem to move at all
afterward.  But I don't consider that she won that fight fairly, and even if she
weren't a standby and barred because of that, I would NOT yield the title to her.
Poisonous wench.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in VEASTIAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with BAIBAR?  He 
actually beat VEASTIAN's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 15 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at VEASTIAN while they watched AMBITIOUS GUARD clobber 
JONAS SWITCHBLADE.  He lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  VETERAN MERCENARY was reminded on the sands why VAISTINIE is Duelmaster.  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
