                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What a surprise!  I prepare and have a strategy to face a zombie and the zombie
not only doesn't show but disappears from the rankings!  Then I hear later from Assur
that the zombie had an unfortunate accident at the recent tourney.
     I say good riddance.  Less zombies can only be a good thing.  More public
transit will also be a good thing for the masses.
     The subway station to the throne remains open (for now)

-- Subway

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to VALAMANTIS once again!  Biff!  Pow!  VALAMANTIS watched with 
glee as ZOMBIE SQUAD got knocked off top spot by MIDDLE WAY 10!  What's with LON 
OLBERT?  He actually beat GARBAGE PAIL KIDS' BONY TONY, and walked away with 20 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MIDDLE WAY 10 while they watched LON 
OLBERT clobber BONY TONY.  He lost 19 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, BUT SUBWAY 
is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of VALAMANTIS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Some people in 
VALAMANTIS think ZOMBIE SQUAD was too harsh when they sent MARIAH (5-2-1) to the Dark 
Arena.  Them's the breaks, I say.  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.  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

Did you see that?  No sooner we install a subway station than zombies start to attack
it! -- Subway

     It's probably the lighting.  You need some sunlamp type lights.

I'm sorry to see teams going inactive here, though not surprised.  For those who will
stick around, my appreciation and what ho! -- Jorja, Middle Way
