                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     How many of these am I going to have to write for Snuffy?!  This is seven.
Seven!  Why can't you go ahead and graduate already, Snuffy?  Why, why, why?
     The Fandil Team is something else.  Sykes was the cute one, but he died.  Sadie
is the sophicated warrior with a dead TV under her belt.  Jerome is a kind of blase'
newbie.  Fleetwood is a handsome rake, who could give certain types fits.  And then
there is Snuffy the oldtimer with 24 wins under his belt and 7 lovely DM Titles.
     Mind you, I hate each and every one of those seven titles because I have to
write the DM Column for Snuffy.  He can't read nor write, and can barely talk
understandably.  But I guess he can fight.
     I hope Fandil The Wise is giving him some good advice.  Like, tell him to
graduate, WOF!
     And I hope you will all write Fandil The Wise and tell the cheapskate to give me
a raise.  Yes!
          The Fandil Publicist (for Snuffy DMVII)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARDIVENT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with FLEETWOOD?  He 
actually beat BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' HEREFORD JONES, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at FANDILS while they watched FLEETWOOD clobber 
HEREFORD JONES.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  TRIA SKATHACH was reminded on the sands why SNUFFY is Duelmaster.  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 THE 27 CLUB.  The bums at FANDILS couldn't face the challenges 
from THE 27 CLUB!  No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Bluvalley Warriors -- Point champs!  Did you have to do it by killing Sykes?  I
really, really liked that little guy, even though he was a feeble one. (sigh) --
Fandil The Wise

The Fandils all grieve for dead Sykes, an 8-5-9-21-7-13-21 bonused striker, expert
init and riposte on the roll, ambidextrous, VL endu/norm dmg, who was destined either
for great success or early failure.  Luiza Klu of Bluvalley Warriors chose the latter
for him and The Red Sands gladly accepted him.  May he fight well in That Great Arena
In The Sky. -- Fandil The Wise

Luiza -- I thank ya done kilt me! -- Sykes

Tria -- It is a little like banging your head on a brick wall, isn't it? -- Fandils
Publicist (for Snuffy)

Polite Beggar -- Thanks for being politer than me. -- Jerome

Fingers Brooke -- I think I said it all after that previous fight.  I would be happy
to try again and make it three in a row for you? -- Sadie

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await.

I think I should be Unchartered Recognition Leader.  *I* don't have ten fights, after
all! -- Hereford Jones

Fandil Publicist -- Wise advice.  We always recognize wise advice, though we don't
always follow it. -- various Bluvalley Warriors

Sadie -- Okay, I can see that being dead and coming back to life is a big experience,
but how does that improve your gladiatorial ability, beyond impressing on you how
not-desirable it is to lose?  And fighting you once was enough.  You know what they
say, "Make love, not war." -- Fingers Brooke

Ghost of Sykes, and Fandil -- Sorry about that.  It was not intentional. -- Luiza Klu

My "overcoming" the "Friendly Constable" was TOTALLY intentional.  The things that
"man" suggested! -- Hereford Jones
