                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am named after a great institution's nickname--the Kent State Golden Flash.
How about that?  And you thought I was really a Willafian, when I am truly an Ohioan.
Which means--exactly nothing.
     But four Duelmaster titles mean something!  Put that in your golden pipe and
smoke it.  And all that with a starting 3 wit?  Some people are smart and some are
dumb, but I was smart enough to pay somebody to score a 1600 on the SATs.  Smart, eh?
A 21--witter.  Hence I became a Golden Flash.
     Golden Flash stands for something else, too, but Midas refused to allow me to
talk about it.  The goody-goody!
     I guess I will just have to go out and make it number five.  Are you able to
stop me?
               Golden Flash DMIV

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  WILLAF needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  EARLY ONE MORNING's match with GOLDFINCH cost him a loss of 4 points!  Don't 
you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think GOLDEN FLASH should let WHIP 
SAWYER be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS was the most avoided team.  Is a 84-65-6 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, that's fer sher.  Like, 
is TEMPEST STORM popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of WILLAF!  
She's got a 2-3-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out 
MOLLY BOOTS challenged SOFA'YAM.  After all, haven't NOBLE ON FIRE and PUNNY AMINALS 
had a long standing duel in WILLAF?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
SOFA'YAM wants me to write about it since he was defeated by MOLLY BOOTS.  Satisfied? 
AUDREY HEPBURN must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She 
challenged RUSTY NEALES.  14 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) 
I thought AUDREY HEPBURN showed great skill and promise when she subdued RUSTY 
NEALES.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
