                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

All Hail Rocanis, greatest arena in all the land.  Watching Gladiator to help inspire
the troops.  Hope it works best of luck to ya all on the sands, less it's vs mine of
course.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ROCANIS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  MIDDLE WAY 20 were 
a bunch of dogs after INCONSISTENT FURY got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 
1st!  What's with ABELINDA CHASE?  She actually beat INCONSISTENT FURY's RIA 
ROSEDANCER, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
INCONSISTENT FURY.  RIA ROSEDANCER lost 19 points to ABELINDA CHASE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe RIA ROSEDANCER will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure 
ROCANIS is excited about CHARLIE EKSA, the new Duelmaster from MIDDLE WAY 20.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of ROCANIS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
