                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yes, it is me again.  4-H.  And what does one write about after 17 Duelmaster
Titles (Twelve Consecutive, now.)?  The weather?  The lack of a playoff in college
football?  The impending national "cliff"?  Christmas?  The upcoming Face-To-Face?
How about... Political Points and Life Impact stats?
     The current Life Impact Team has a total of 119 PPs!  That's a lot!
Unfortunately, the divide is:
4-H = 103
Math = 16
Yet, despite my massive political point load, Math will probably graduate before me.
When he gets his next ones, he will be gone.  Me?  The Commission discriminates
against me and my style.  They don't think one adex is enough, and, unfortunately,
the two other skills I have learned the most, I started out -2 skills.  (sigh)  I
will probably have to go all the way to 50 fights total.  Can I make it 19
consecutive and 24 total DMs?
     As to us Life Impacts?  We looked like this at birth:
ST   9,11,11,14,17
CN   5,13,16,16,19
SZ   6,8,12,12,16
WT   5,6,15,15,17
WL   9,14,16,17,20
SP   5,6,7,10,15
DF   7,8,10,12,21
A sort of average 13-14-11-11-15-8-12 someting or te other?
     Come and get me.  It looks like Synergy will be the next to try.  He looks quite
capable of setting me down to a white ribbon.  I hope not!
               4-H DMXVII

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SNOWBOUND once again!  Welcome to SNOWBOUND, BASH BROS HOCKEY!  
We need more teams who can get a 2-1-0 their first time out!  What's with THE COUNT?  
He actually beat MIDDLE WAY 6's MOLDAR NAY, and walked away with 83 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at OPEN SESAME while they watched REMARKABLE WORD clobber 
SPECTRA.  She lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
Try as he might, C IS FOR COOKIE wasn't good enough at persuading 4-H to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!  
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
PUBLIC ENEMY.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at LIFE IMPACTS ain't reelin'! 
PUBLIC ENEMY's mad!  What do people see in JENNA KUUL?  Hers 5-12-0?  MIDDLE WAY 6 
ain't talkin', but she's got 30 points.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, 
SYNERGY, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by MATH, 30 points above 
you, is dues.  MATH dealt death to  SYNERGY.  I bet MATH could beat two-year-olds, 
too.  Well, PUBLIC ENEMY knows who to set their sights on.  I hate going to the 
effort of writing about the kind of fights that THUNDER CHICKEN gets in.  He fights 
people like NEWLIN OHM, 8 points below.  I thought THUNDER CHICKEN showed great skill 
and promise when he beat NEWLIN OHM.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of SNOWBOUND unite.  You have only your games to lose!  MATH proved too 
determined for SYNERGY.  SYNERGY was lucky to go in the ring, with 11-7-1 to his 
credit.  He will be remembered.  MATH had a sure-fire victory when he challenged 
SYNERGY, 30 points below him.  Was anyone really surprised when SYNERGY bit it?  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.  SNOWBOUND 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
