                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Do you ever get excited about a new possibility?  So much that your performance
with your current opportunity diminishes?  That is where I'm at right now.  It is
hard to motivate myself to put my best into my waitress job, knowing that I may get
to quit soon and live the good life, without worrying about feeding my family!  It's
a very nice thought, but should something happen, I could be burning bridges here at
the restaurant.  The cook is messing up even more often than normal, as I forget to
check up on him.  Instead, I'm dreaming about fighting with gleaming weapons and
sparkling armor.
     I'm going to have to try extra hard this week, even though my dreams lie
elsewhere!  My challenge to help achieve those dreams goes out to Long Biggar, who I
hope to give a loss on his way out.  Besides, he beat me before and I'd like to see
if I can do better this time out!
     The fight last time with Shelley was quite similar to most of the fights we've
had in the past.  She seems to like the abuse I give her, as she keeps coming around
for more.  I won't complain though, because her tips are quite adequate.

-- The Cook Messed Up

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARDIVENT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with CORBIN 
ROSS?  He actually beat BASH BROS. WAITRESS' WHAT WATER?, and walked away with 11 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at BLUVALLEY WARRIORS while they watched 
CORBIN ROSS clobber WHAT WATER?.  She lost 8 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, LONG BIGGAR wasn't good enough at 
persuading THE COOK MESSED UP to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.  ARDIVENT thinks THE 27 CLUB 
and their 23-22-0 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  Management 
must be dealin', as the boys at FANDILS ain't reelin'!  THE 27 CLUB's mad!  What do 
people see in KURT COBAIN?  His 5-6-0?  THE 27 CLUB ain't talkin', but he's got 63 
points.   
     Warriors of ARDIVENT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

No Name -- You???  I guess my surprise weapon selection did not faze you one bit?
And I had to be the one who lost and move Slugbait ahead of Fandil?  Pshaw! -- Irvin

Congrats to Lord Protector Long Biggar. -- All Us Fandils

Congrats, but no tip, goes to Bash Bros Waitress for the DM Crown.  That wasn't what
I ordered. -- Fandil The Wise

The Cook Messed Up -- I keep trying; you keep reducing my self confidence.  I surely
hope you graduate early. -- Shelley Ann

I won, Arlene?  How crass of me. -- Uncle Junior

Slugbait -- Now you have me where you want me.  Salute. -- WOF

Health, Humility, Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

Irvin -- Not only that, but fish is GOOD for you.  It's even, so they tell me, good
for me.  Hard to believe. -- Joubert Klee

What Water? -- Maybe, but then again, maybe not. -- Long Biggar

Uncle Junior -- You insufferable child! -- Arlene Ross

Violent Orange -- Ah, that I will be leaving and unlikely ever to see you again!  I
don't know how I can stand life without you around.-- Long Biggar
P.S.  No way am I going to join Marci in her Haunted Hatshop.

Anti-Leap Year -- Can't have that.  I'm COUNTING on having women propose to me. --
Corbin Ross

Kurt Cobain -- Heck. -- Joubert Klee

Listen, that guy was SUSPICIOUS!  He was up to NO GOOD.  I acted in the only
responsible way. -- Fingers Brooke

Fandil -- I think you drank that bottle I sent over too fast.  Even in my wildest
dreams, bashers still get trashed by other styles.  Or maybe you're taking a little
something extra with that bottle.  Perhaps you'll share? -- Assur

Shelley Ann -- That's a funny story.  When I first came to try out for Assur, I tried
out as a basher, knowing Assur's soft spot for the style.  I figured it might be my
ticket out of this waitress gig.  Someone was with him and approached me, saying he
could make me a star if I'd sign with him instead of Assur.  Assur must have heard
about this conversation, because he asked what it would take to make me sign with
him.  I told him about the conversation and said I'd like to be a star.  He gave me
the paperwork and I signed and here I am! -- The Cook Messed Up

Black Bile -- Nasty stuff!  I'll stick with water! -- What Water?
