                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I guess I was a little off with this Large Shield thing.  Quarterstaff it is,
then.
     It has been a pleasure fighting amongst you, Jurine.  Off to the Dark Arena and
then onwards to Home Guard.

Horse d'oeuvre

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JURINE once again!  What's with STORMCROWE PIE?  He actually 
beat STAR WARS' YODA, and walked away with 27 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at SHEWISH BUFFET.  ZENSU LASAGNA lost 18 points to R2-D2.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ZENSU LASAGNA will provide more easy wins...  JURINE has 
a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK 
ARENA's SHEWISH GIANT (0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  The crowds 
were amazed this turn, as SHEWISH GIANT killed the Duelmaster, HORSE D'OEUVRE, 
leaving SHEWISH BUFFET in mourning.  So now ARKAN BARNES gets to be JURINE's 
Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  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 JURINE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
