                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I've managed to avoid lawsuits my entire career, but my time is finished.  Off
to retirement.

-- Misdiagnosis

notes from Assur:
8(1)-10-11-21-16(1)-9-11 STK
Sadly, I didn't try the strength train until after his tourney career was over, which
gave him a damage bump to good.  Faves were MO/HI FI Lunge Tactic.  Career highlight
was 11-3 in Initiates.  Learns in 37FE: 19/12/18/7/10/20

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon WILLAF, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for GOLDEN TONGUE, who pummelled WHIP 
SAWYER, to pocket 25 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 10 points to GOLDEN TONGUE.  (Discrete enough, WHIP 
SAWYER?) MISDIAGNOSIS found out being WILLAF's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, 
receiving 2 challenges!  Well, Duelmaster MISDIAGNOSIS Dark Arena Challenged DARK 
ARENA's SHEWISH GIANT.  Is a 11-6-0 good enough?  SHEWISH GIANT found out that WILLAF 
isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one 
team in WILLAF is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of ANGELIC KNIGHTS, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, GOLDEN GLADIATORS scurried away from ANGELIC 
KNIGHTS.  Oh, the shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  SHEWISH GIANT 
in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for MISDIAGNOSIS of BASH BROS. DOCTOR.  Maybe that 
certain serving girl(?) at The Swinging Aardvark will be!  Ask not for whom the sword 
slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in WILLAF is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Har, har.  Nice timing Misdiagnosis.  Kudos, and glad to see you graduate.  (wink) --
Midas, Golden Gladiators
P.S.  Kudos, too, on the repeat Duelmastership.
P.P.S.  I just wish I could trust your diagnosis.

Papa's Bankbook -- Thanks for the contribution.  I feel rich! -- Golden Tongue

Penance -- No wonder I won so easily.  You started too early as it is not yet Advent.
-- AU

     You mean... people can't be penitent except during Advent?

Early One Morning -- You blew it because for me it was "very early one morning."  I
just love to get up early and WIN. -- Goldfinch (tweet, tweet)

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Gold. -- Midas

I suppose we should congratulate Misdiagnosis.  It seems the thing to do. -- Jorja
and the Punny Aminals

Three-two, losses to managed gladiators, wins over standbys.  Why is this so...
ordinary? -- Sofa'yam
