                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     At least the standbys know their job, which is to lose.  And I get to leave this
place--just in time to avoid the onset of winter, too!  I'll take my lands in the
south, maybe on the Ratani border.  Yeah.  Or, oh, hey!  All the way down to the
BEACH, down past the Delta!  Debby Tonte and her well-tanned spiritual sisters, oh
YEAH!

                                    Moko ten Zora

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to DAYLA KIV once again!  What's with JAXON?  He actually beat SAND 
DANCERS' TERREINE TYL TAHL, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at SAND DANCERS.  TERREINE TYL TAHL lost 9 points to JAXON.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TERREINE TYL TAHL will provide more easy wins...  PELIS 
THE OLD was reminded on the sands why MOKO TEN ZORA is Duelmaster.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, GEMSTONE 
CREATIONS!  The bums at INSIGNIFICANCE couldn't face the challenges from GEMSTONE 
CREATIONS!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, MARDEL TEN VAREN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that 
DIENEKES gets in.  He fights people like MARDEL TEN VAREN, 9 points below.  I thought 
DIENEKES showed great skill and promise when he defeated MARDEL TEN VAREN.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
