                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I never did like these "kung-fu" people.  They talk about it being some kind of
martial arts thing, but all it really is, they want an excuse to go around kicking
dogs.  Well, no Kung-Fu Master is ever kicking me again.  I'll take his leg off!

                                Bigger and Better
                                    Bully Boy

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARADI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  THE BROTHERHOOD were a 
bunch of dogs after RED DOG GANG got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with RAMBO?  It actually beat RED DOG GANG's GARM, and walked away with 21 
more points from the fight.  Major screwup at RED DOG GANG.  HUSH PUPPY lost 12 
points to RUTHLESS JAYWALKER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HUSH PUPPY will 
provide more easy wins...  ARADI, set your sights on VETERAN MERCENARY.  He'll be 
happy to entertain all requests after defeating BB BULLY BOY.  READY EDDIE looked 
pretty Duelmasterlike as he took ARADI's top spot with 76 points.  Now, what will BB 
BULLY BOY do?  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  And this week the Duelmaster--whoops!  TWILIGHT BRIGADE has 
one week left to avenge WORLOCK's death by excessive hits on the part of READY EDDIE 
of RED DOG GANG.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  
To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

I'm not understanding about this Virginal Gigolo.  I mean, he isn't even human,
smells kind of like a... a muskrat or something!  Underneath, but then he puts
PERFUME--euwh, talk about hurt the nose and make the eyes burn!--on top of that so
maybe the HUMANS can't tell he's a muskrat, but the rest of us CAN.  He's Bad. --
Ready Eddie

Any Orc that comes Visiting me is in TROUBLE. -- Hush Puppy, militant guard dog

Jarlaxle -- A golem.  I might have known.  What you golems do to a dog's teeth, not
to mention that horrible oily smell!, is not good. -- Garm

I laugh at the Fratsfan Noble, I rip holes in his pants.  He is dumb.  He doesn't
understand dogs at all. -- Chiquita Chiwawa

26 July 2010
     Some managers have attempted to send personals and columns to hal, and hal has
been refusing to acknowledge their content.  I don't know what hal's problem is,
specifically, but for best success, send PLAIN TEXT (dot txt) in the body of the
email.  Not attachments.  Thank you. -- the Editor

POSTED:  Arena recruitment effort, DM 32, Arvat -- seeing as our arena Participation
has dwindled in recent months, we're offering the following incentive to any new
teams looking for a new home arena.  We will GIVE a Free Rollup to any manager
willing to agree to fight in Arvat for the next 10 turns.  We have a number of VERY
solid arena teams stockpiled, and while we don't promise tournament godlings, we are
certain we can come up with teams with 3, 4 or even 5 solid arena warriors to start
out with.
     In addition we'll honor any no-challenge requests by relatively new managers to
help you get off on the right foot.
     If interested, please contact the Devil Advocates via Diplo or contact
theDarkOne via IM on the www DOT reality DOT com site.  We will even give a choice of
teams available if requested.
