                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Uh, peasants, if Endu Endu were to have to formulate a DM column, it would be
neither legible nor logical.  He is somewhat (somewhat is a significant under
exaggeration) of an idiot.  But he wins and wins, so what the heck.  Your kind of
guy.  Me, I go for the intelligent, handsome, wealthy, aristocratic type.  None of
those here in this dorky village.  No way!
     So let this be Endu Squared's message to one and all....
          Roses are red.
          Peasants are blue.
          Endu on top.
          Nyah to you.

               Amy A. Airhead, Duds Princess

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ERINIKA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with VINNIE THE TUSH?  He 
actually beat DUDS' LUG, and walked away with 133 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at DARK RUNES while they watched DARK RHINO clobber BIMBO.  She lost 12 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, 
KHALHUMS DWARF wasn't good enough at persuading ENDU ENDU to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  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.  The 
most avoided team was REIGN OF TERROR.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
DUDS ain't reelin'!  REIGN OF TERROR's mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     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

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
