     Much has changed in ARDIVENT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  ARDIVENT 
watched with glee as THE SOVEREIGN got knocked off top spot by WRATHMEN!  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  WE 
GOT GAME is now ranked 2nd with a 3-2-0 turn.  What's with FEHEADRAE?  She actually 
beat WE GOT GAME's NIMZOVICH, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at WE GOT GAME.  NIMZOVICH lost 11 points to FEHEADRAE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe NIMZOVICH will provide more easy wins...  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for WE GOT GAME's outstanding member, Duelmaster KASPAROV.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, YOU DON'T 
SAY!!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at WE GOT GAME ain't reelin'!  YOU 
DON'T SAY!'s mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
FEHEADRAE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  KASPAROV didn't 
quite know what to make of a challenge he received from UNCLE LEROY of FANDILS, who 
is 21 points below him.  UNCLE LEROY perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was 
bested by KASPAROV and ended up with 93 recognition points.   
     Warriors of ARDIVENT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  
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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

No Duelnmaster? We have to rectify that quickly without Wrath! -- Fandil The Wise

Scorpio, yes, of course, The Consortium monitors the "goings on" in Niatoli. Lots of 
mouthiness going on. No team there at the moment. (Off and on.) -- WOF

Rocksock, plaid?! Them socks ain't plaid. They be argo-sumthings. Mama says. -- Uncle 
Leroy

Lorens Klu, that's two for you and none for me. You don't seem to be sharing properly, 
girl! -- Mildred Leona

Billy Joe, now that's the way I like to see fights go! -- Earl

Fehedrae, feel my wrath. (wink) -- Uncle Leroy

Nico Robin, you are both too skilled and too experienced for me. And I am sad about it 
and think I am beginning to hate you. -- Grandma Clara

Health. Humility. Honor. The Red Sands await us all. -- Fandil The Wise

Folks, I am leaving Duel II for personal reasons.  I have no idea whether I may 
return, but don't count on it.  I will remain active in Lapur (29) and Jade Mountain 
(75), and that's it.  I have enjoyed knowing you.  Fare you well. -- Jorja

Congrats to Black Chaos and all of the other tourney participants who represented our 
homestead of Ardivent. -- Scorpio *holding up a glass of bourbon in salute*

WTH!!  I guess because of all the tourney stuff to process, my last turn never got 
processed.  Dammit! -- Scorpio *clearly pissed*

Jorja -- I had a feeling. *lol*  I guess I seemed like a real jerk in Rodeki, talking 
all that trash to Coach and Harby. My bad. -- Scorpio 

Jorja -- Are you in arena 82 or 84?  Is it an arena worth trying to be in, if given 
the oportunity, or not?  Just curious.  It seems that almost 50% of people in the 
arenas were in the tourneys, and most were rookies. -- Scorpio *drunkenly trying to 
figure out strategic moves*
