                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sorry for your loss, Sand Dancers.  Tiger was a fine opponent.  I was aiming for
the arm, but with the steam, and the sweat in my eyes, and it being hard to keep a
grip on my shortsword, it's a wonder I hit anything that I'm aiming for.
     With these 2 kills on my record, one might think that I'm some sort of
bloodthirsty monster, but it's simply not the case.  My first kill was against the
Dark Arena on turn 1.  It was kill or be killed.  Can't really blame a guy for that.

Anyway, my apologies.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in LIN TIRIAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with KNUCKLE 
SANDWICH?  He actually beat SAND DANCERS' ROCK HARDMAN, and walked away with 15 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at SHEWISH BUFFET.  RIB IAYE lost 11 points to 
VERA TEAGUE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe RIB IAYE will provide more easy 
wins...  URIK DARKHEART was reminded on the sands why STEAMED MUSCLES is Duelmaster.  
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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
LIN TIRIAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Hrm, I could've sworn some returning manager in the forums mentioned this place as
his old stomping grounds.  I guess I won't hold my breath. -- One Armed Bandit

Silver Slim -- Me very popular. -- Monster Mash

One Armed Bandit -- Ah, so THAT's whare the good recruits are going.  Must be the way
you feed them. -- Jorja

Steamed Muscles -- I protest that!  You were totally out of line!  And if you steam
and serve MY muscles, I'll poison you.  Don't you believe it about the benefits of
eating tiger meat. -- Ghost of Tiger Jonsalmin
P.S.  And you STILL didn't teach me anything!

M. Chardinee snuck up on me.  He was subtle.  I don't like that in an opponent.  He
didn't COWER. -- Urik Darkheart

Monster Mash -- Is it intelligence or small-muscle control that you lack so that you
have to mash everything?  There ARE better ways to prepare food, you know.  Mashing
is crude. -- Silver Slim

Mordant Deserter, eh?  Tasty.  I don't mind mashing HIM. -- Rock Hardman

Rib Iaye -- Ah... that's some kind of Hawai'ian dish, right?  The lack of consonants
gave it away. -- Vera Teague
P.S.  And the pineapple in the sauce.

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS

STEAMED MUSCLES devastated URIK DARKHEART in a 1 minute mismatched Title fight.
MONSTER MASH won victory over SILVER SLIM in a 3 minute battle.
GREEN GIANT viciously subdued DANGEROUS CRIMINAL in a 2 minute gory match.
ROCK HARDMAN was vanquished by KNUCKLE SANDWICH in a 2 minute gory mismatched brawl.
RIB IAYE was narrowly defeated by VERA TEAGUE in a 1 minute amateur's match.
