                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This comes as a surprise, and I had no words of wisdom or vanity prepared.  If
I'm still up here next time, I will try to do better.

                                    Sunset Thunder

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JADE MOUNTAIN once again!  What's with VIGILAZ?  He actually 
beat GREATS OF TROY's DEBBIE GREEN, and walked away with 18 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at GREATS OF TROY.  DEBBIE GREEN lost 12 points to VIGILAZ.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DEBBIE GREEN will provide more easy wins...  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for PARANOID ASYLUM's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
CORINTHIAN.  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.   
     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!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

our little river!--I'll eat it.  Uh, maybe I should rephrase that.  As soon as I can
get my foot out of my mouth. -- Jade Ring
