     Whisper, the Arvedan warrior from The Brotherhood, fell lifeless on the sands to
a mixed symphony of cheers and catcalls.  There was one, however, amidst the roar of
the crowd, that looked down from his box seat who uttered no words, no shouts.  The
rage etched in his face said all that need be said.  Godric Magnesson Da Vinci, the
manager of The Brotherhood, spat his wine to the floor and leveled a withering stare,
with his one good eye, across the arena sands at the Hollen Katze manager.  The
richly clad dwarf stood, took his wide-brimmed hat from his head, and gazed down to
the arena floor at his fallen warrior.  No hint of the boisterous demeanor that the
dwarf was so known for showed in his gaze.
     The guests that Godric had invited to join him for today's events sat
mesmerized.  Their daze was broken by the pounding of boots coming up the stairs
behind them.  The first to make it to the top of the stairs was Whisper's teammate
Kismet.
     "Godric!" Kismet cried.
     "I know!" Godric growled, cutting her short.  "I know."
     Maximillian was second to the landing.  "Seydjinn and Estraya are with the
healers," informed the slender Kannar.  "But they'll know soon enough."
     Kismet looked at Maximillian.  Something passed between them.  Maximillian
nodded.
     "No!" exclaimed Godric.  "no murders."
     "Then let me challenge the bloodfeud," implored Kismet.
     "I will not send another of my warriors against that ill-trained psychopath,"
countered the dwarf.  "I will handle this.  For now, collect your teammates and meet
me back at the villa."
     "Guests," started Godric, addressing those still sitting in his box, "I must
retire.  I hope to be of better humor when next we meet."
     The Brotherhood's manager then reaffixed his hat and looked once more across the
arena at the Hollen Katze manager.  He raised his enchanted, mechanical right hand
and pointed at his new adversary in warning.  He then turned and walked purposefully
from the arena.

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to COLLUSION COVE once again!  Woof!  HOLLEN KATZE were a bunch of 
dogs after EX OBLIVIONE got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's 
with NIALL?  He actually beat HOLLEN KATZE's LIMBO, and walked away with 19 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at EX OBLIVIONE while they watched NIALL 
clobber LIMBO.  She lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Try as he might, FLUMMAX wasn't good enough at persuading CLOUDGAZER to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  What do people see in DONOLD 
DOG?  His 3-6-1?  RED DOG GANG ain't talkin', but he's got 17 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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

Cloudgazer -- Oh, good.  I didn't want to be duelmaster, I'm just an ordinary dog,
not one of those Leaders and Shakers or whatever they call them.  Not that I can't
shake a cat if I get my jaws on one, mind you.  And lead my person a merry chase--my
person, like so many people, needs a merry chase or other source of merriment from
time to time.  Dogs do valuable work, you know. -- Flummax

Imoto-Chan -- It's just too MUCH sometimes!  Always having to worry about and rescue
that ridiculous boy, what was his name?  I forget, and humans put too much store in
names anyway.  I know how he SMELLED, and that's what counts.  Where was I?  Ah, yes,
it's all too MUCH sometimes, the PRESSURE to live up to the Star Image.  Some days I
need to relax and let someone ELSE be a star, you know? -- Lassie

Ludmilla -- Did you see that?  "Pile-driving punches"!  Of course, next thing you
know, someone's going to set me to driving piles, which is NOT my proper work.
Still, a win is good.  I like winning. -- Little Big Dog

Vladimir Yorga -- Oh, you're a golem.  Too bad.  I kinda thought you might be a
Vampire, and I was curious to see what a Vampire might taste like.  But golems, eh.
I've never yet met one that tasted really good. -- BB Bully Boy

Kemet -- I hate it when humans do that.  It makes me so mad, I want to... ah, do
things I'm probably not supposed to talk about here, as well as bite legs and chew on
shews and all kinds of stuff. -- Donold Dog
