Whip Sawyer put down the newsletter he was reading and looked around at his teammates. "What's a broomstick got to do with anything? He can't be sweeping clean, becuase he isn't a NEW broom up there." "Title hog," Rusty Neals growled. "It means he's a witch," Sofa'yam said. He sounded uncertain. "But guys aren't witches, are they? And even if they are, do they ride broomsticks?" Notton D'Ball blinked at them and looked at his own copy of the newsletter. "Who's King Wencelsas? Have we seceded from the Karnhorn Empire? Won't that mean trouble?" "I don't know who Wenceslas is," Whip answered, "but I wouldn't MIND seceding, you know? And with winter just setting in, we've got at least a couple of months before a serious civil war can break out." He frowned at the far wall without seeing it. "Unless they use magic. I s'pose they might." In a far corner, the youngest and least-regarded member of the team looked up. "Are you thinking of SUPPORTING a civil war?" he demanded incredulously. "Maybe," Whip said. "What's the Satrap ever done for us?" "It's all piffle," Rusty countered. "This whole King Whosislost and all. Just something Flash made up, and then YOU are making up a bunch more stuff on top of it-- piffle. Just words. Not real." "Everything STARTS with words," Whip said. "It's what people DO with them that makes the real or nonsense. We should find this Good King Wenceslas." On the edge of the mesa west of Willaf-- A doorway shimmered into existence, then settled into place against the stone of the cliff. Opened. A man stepped up to the threshold, and looked out, huddled in his fur-lined robe. "What gods-forsaken place is this?" DUELMASTER'S COLUMN Notes from the arena champ. What is this? Number 8? Many, many, many. I kinda like being Mighty Many Duelmaster Golden Flash. I do. Maybe I will graduate soon? Maybe Goldfinch will beat me to it? I don't think The Commission likes me. Somebody told me they weren't into flashing. Their loss! 2014 is basically over. It was the year of Golden Flash. Believe it. Golden Flash DMVIII SPY REPORT Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills? Well fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for WILLAF. Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS! 'Cause they got 3-1-1 and moved up to 2nd! MVP award for NOTTON D'BALL? PUNNY AMINALS' proud of him after beating AMBITIOUS GUARD and getting 19 points. Talk about yer big time losers! HOMEMADE DRESS got smashed by GOLDEN TONGUE, and lost 5 points! The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One! WHIP SAWYER knows this. He was challenged by the Duelmaster. 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. So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway? It can't be for these really neat Spyreports can it? CHUCKS' PINUPS was the most avoided team. Is a 13-25-2 record really that scary? Is there some deep dark secret why GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been avoiding CHUCKS' PINUPS so much? Or is it just that they're too scared? Can PUNNY AMINALS' WHIP SAWYER be more popular than me? He was challenged the most, but is that really the same? What does a fighter fight for? I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone gets killed. Not after four more fights. What a bunch of heartless! I couldn't believe how many people were snickering when PAPA'S BANKBOOK killed RUSTY NEALES. So he had a 4-11-0, that's no excuse! That was so totally rude when PAPA'S BANKBOOK wasted RUSTY NEALES. I think all you warriors in WILLAF should gang up on BLOOD ON THE TRACKS! 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. Remember you guys, ease up sometimes! Chill out!

He's a nasty piece of business. -- Notton D'Ball Midas and Howlin' Wolf -- This little bit of a spotlight is an attempt to turn over a new (old) leaf here, and your assistance would be welcome. -- Jorja LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS GOLDEN FLASH devastated WHIP SAWYER in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge Title fight.
