                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I haven't been trying to kill you humans, honest.  But at this point, with this
beautiful 7-0-3 record, I can't bring myself to change my strategy either.

Horse d'oeuvre

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JURINE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with DEEMER EPPT?  
He actually beat BOMB SQUAD's BOOTSY COLLINS, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at BOMB SQUAD.  BOOTSY COLLINS lost 15 points to 
DEEMER EPPT.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BOOTSY COLLINS will provide more 
easy wins...  ANDRES was reminded on the sands why HORSE D'OEUVRE is Duelmaster.  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?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
