                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     After that last long column you guys expect another?  If I do write this, it
will be the twenty-first.  Is THAT fair?  Why do I have to write so many?  Why
haven't I graduated.  The Commission is unfair!  Buncha old fuddy-duddies!
               4-H, DMXXI

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SNOWBOUND once again!  What's with MISSING TEETH?  He actually 
beat LIFE IMPACTS' CIRCLE K, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at BASH BROS HOCKEY while they watched MISSING TEETH clobber CIRCLE 
K.  It lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  SHOBART 
TEEGUE was reminded on the sands why 4-H is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, PUBLIC ENEMY!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at LIFE IMPACTS 
ain't reelin'!  PUBLIC ENEMY's mad!  What do people see in MOLDAR NAY?  His 18-20-1?  
MIDDLE WAY 6 ain't talkin', but he's got 83 points.  Keep challenging up 35 points, 
QUALITY, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  MOLDAR NAY always accepts 
those kind of challenges...  Sometimes what you expect to do (like in the fights) 
doesn't expect to turn out like you thought.  QUALITY defeated MOLDAR NAY.  It don't 
make sense.   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Lord Protector Moldar Nay -- Hubba, hubba. -- All The Life Impacts

Moldar Nay -- I'd like to think I had something to do with it!  A salute to you. --
4-H

Garuth -- Now THAT was fun and, of course, quality stood out.  Thanks for the skills!
THOSE were neat! -- Quality

Heart Of Glass -- I have enjoyed every one of our encounters.  And no broken glass!
Maybe a pulled muscle ot two and a headache or so. -- Circle K

Karragit Slave -- Don't give up your day job. -- Saxaphone

Own Goal -- Well, maybe you don't own 'em all. -- Cantex

Moldar -- Well, I certainly agree with you.  Three L O N G years here is enough! --
4-H

Y'all lifers done gud!  Yup!  Fiver 'n oh!  Yowsir!  Lak'd 'em all, speshul that'n
hockey puck.  Yup. -- Smitty

Liam -- Did you actually buy that clifftop overlooking Iceberg Acres?  Every
graduating gladiator has turned it down! -- Jorja

     That's Glacier View Estates, dammit! -- Lars Penkattan, Realtor Extraordinaire

Liam -- Your team will be "hit and miss for a while"?  That's better than mine, which
is constantly being hit and missing. -- Jorja

4-H -- Today, nothing can go wrong in my life, it's all good. -- Moldar Nay

Nefara -- Take that, you public enemy! -- Shobart Teegue

Quality -- Ah, but you'll have your off days!  Only the mediocre are always at their
best, you know! -- Garuth Holm

Zurisday -- Wow, I knew time was getting away from me--it always does--but I didn't
realize it was that bad! -- Jenna Kuul

Necroshade -- You just do that to embarrass me, don't you? -- Newlin Ohm

Newlin Ohm -- Well that went well for me, better then the last time I stepped out on
the sands with someone from a Middle Way team.  Yes, Waterstone had me spitting sand
for a week.  Fish & Chips on me with a icy cold pint of New Castle. -- Necroshade

Snowbound -- My team may miss some sand time, as I bought a real lemon from the
Donnegil Noble.  Yes, the underground is half flooded or infested with Deathhead
fungus, and the south side of the keep needs some love before it falls on top of my
head. -- Liam the Goth

Smitty -- Thank you for the welcome and note, I should have fun here. -- Liam

Donnegil Noble -- Your soul is mine. -- Liam

Jorja -- Mrs Beeton's Yourshire Pudding:
1 1/2 pint milk (the good stuff)
6 large tablespoons flour
3 large eggs (my sister likes duck eggs)
1 saltspoonful of well salt

Put the flour and salt in a basin, stir in enough milk to make a stiff batter.  When
this is smooth, add the remainder of the milk and the eggs, which should be well
beaten.  Beat the mixture and pour it into a shallow tin, well greased with beef
drippings.  Bake it for an hour then for another 1/2 hour, place it under the meat,
to catch a little of the juices from your Sunday roast.  (Bake temp 190c - 1 hour,
then 173c - 1/2 hour, temp in celcius) -- Liam
P.S.  Play around with the temp as all ovens are different.
