                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What's the deal with this Veteran Mercenary person?  He doesn't have a clue how
to play.

                                    Ready Eddie

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARADI once again!  What's with POTATO BUG?  He actually beat 
ARADI's FRIENDLY CONSTABLE, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at RESCUE RANGERS while they watched RAMBO clobber JILL RUSTLE.  She 
lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Our Duelmaster 
has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT READY EDDIE is still the Duelmaster 
because he has the most recognition points!  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.  ARADI 
thinks RED DOG GANG and their 466-724-7 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, 
give up...  The bums at RESCUE RANGERS couldn't face the challenges from RED DOG 
GANG!  No excuse for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Garm

The Ambitious Guard doesn't know how to REALLY guard a place.  For that, you need a
Dog. -- Hush Puppy

got to do it. -- Jill Rustle

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
