                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My first turn back and I'm already sitting on the throne in this fine arena.  I
think Zensu Lasagna missed the signal for the fight to begin.  He was just sitting
there picking lint out of his belly button.  It looks like I might have to pay Hobo
Stew a visit this next turn.

                                      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 QUICHE LORRAINE?  She actually 
beat MIDDLE WAY 16's CELINE DEE, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at SHEWISH BUFFET while they watched QUICHE LORRAINE clobber CELINE 
DEE.  She lost 18 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ZENSU 
LASAGNA was reminded on the sands why FLAME SPIDER is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters 
with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, SHEWISH BUFFET!  In 
my day, no team with a 90-54-9 would scare me off!  What's the problem, FEAR FACTORY? 
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, CHUCK ENDERN!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  RETORT of LEGIONS OF HELL 
knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged JENNI KORREG of MIDDLE WAY 16 who is up by 23.  
Now was this a wise move?  RETORT perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he beat 
JENNI KORREG and ended up with 64 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  
JURINE is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
