                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, dang.  Hard for Fairyfire to keep the title when she's inactive.  So I
defeat a standby, take the title, and graduate.  I'm not sure this is good, although
that's what I'm *told*.  But I don't seem to have a true vocation for gladiating.

                                     Stingaree

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ILLIS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, ISLANDERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with DOG CATCHER?  
He actually beat ISLANDERS' ALINAI, and walked away with 25 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at PATCH WORKS.  LEAKY ROOF lost 12 points to DAMN I'M SEXY.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LEAKY ROOF will provide more easy wins...  Try 
as he might, GISBORNE wasn't good enough at persuading STINGAREE to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  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.   
     Warriors of ILLIS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  I like to see 
warriors put young whippersnappers in their place.  I guess you could say WHAT'S IN A 
NAME'DOG CATCHER did just that.  Right ISLANDERS?  Many a warrior has met his fate in 
a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Burning Rubber -- We at "Patchworks" think you're a member of W.E.B.  We're going to
be watching you from now on. -- Sir BlackGuard, mgr. 

Alinai -- All of my defeats have been by your hands alone.  You know that the arena
has other warriors you can pick on! -- Washout

Snapple -- It was going good.  The moment I turn my back, you slam me shut. -- Screen
Door

Damn I'm Sexy -- Are not! -- Flat Tire

Baby Blanket was a cute little thing (10-10-7-15-16-11-15 PR).  We'll miss its warm
smile. -- Patch Works

Alinai -- Ouch!  I guess that's what I get for being too cocky! -- Sudden Death

Sylvester -- I always say it's better to look good than to feel good, but not when
you hit like that! -- Damn I'm Sexy

Belitris -- That was fun!  Let's go a little longer next time and give the crowd
their money's worth. -- Burning Rubber

Oh, great!  Stinger defeats the Doomie Juggernaut, who gets riled and comes around
again and KILLS me.  Is this fair? -- Ghost of Beach Bob
P.S.  And then he laughed at me.

Damn I'm Sexy -- Good gods, you ALLOWED your manager to name you that?  How
revolting. -- Sylvester
P.S.  And inaccurate.
P.P.S.  And you can't match Stupid Sexy Flanders anyway.

Sudden Death -- Really?  Coulda fooled me. -- Alinai

Burning Rubber -- Amazing how many people are trying to do that within earshot of my
desk as I write this.  Of course, they AREN'T burning rubber, they're spinning their
tires on ice and compacted snow, but the principle is the same. -- Belitris
