                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hallibutt is still in shock from becoming Duelmaster, so I will give a little history
about the Wizards Wrath guild.

It was created back in the transfer arenas in the early 90"s if I remember correctly.
Orginally Wizards Wrath was owned by the Purple Sage except for one warrior Tiffinal.
He belonged to me and we had a similar arrangement on a team of mine in Zensu, where
the Purple Sage controlled one warrior there.  After 2 of his favortie warriors on
the team died he traded Wizards Wrath to me and for our original team we started
together in Iaye.

After that the team was more or less forgotten about and sat dormant in the transfer
arena until I had to quit playing in 97 due too financial reasons.  When I came back
in October of 05, I found out about them in the mini-overviews I recieved and
eventually moved them to here.  Since then 2 of the original members have been
inducted into ADM, Apprentice and Tiffinal.  Halibutt is the last original member of
the team and an experiment of Purple Sage's that he started long ago, that I can't
bring myself to end.  Currently the guild is being transformed into a tourney team.
So whenever one of the tourney warriors need to get a few FE Halibutt will also be
fighting, otherwise don't expect him regularly.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KALTOS, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at THE MIDDLE WAY 5 left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by PAPER MARIO.  Good show!  Practice pays for 
GOOMBARIO, who pummelled PENDRU ROST, to pocket 18 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, GOOMBARIO was winsome, after beating PENDRU ROST and seeing him 
lose 14 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, KALTOS' Duelmaster HALIBUTT found 
itself the creature of the hour, being "invited to dance" 2 times!  The arena was 
more crowded than usual this time, as SHY GUY faced KALTOS' Duelmaster.  In KALTOS, 
nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, SHY GUY. 
So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees? 
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are KALTOS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team... 
The warriors of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 found their efforts at combat frustrated as PAPER 
MARIO apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for KALTOS?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

My, my.  A wimpy 2-3.  It has been a while.  I think I am in despair. -- Luigi,
Manager Paper Marios

     That's better than denial.  There are crocodiles in denial.

Kadaysa -- There is more to me than most think.  Nice learns! -- Goombario

Halibutt, congratulations!  I think you deserve it more than I do. -- Shy Guy

Katirona -- I'm thinking you don't love me anymore!  We girls need to have fun you
know, and if you keep beating me and stamping on my toes, I'm gonna cry. -- Tiny Toes

Jammy -- Some day I'm going to do THAT to Daydream Believer!  I am. -- Tubba Blubba

Pendra Rost -- YOU!  You?  How did I draw you?  Your massive experience at 18 fights
to my little bitty TWO?  Did I stand a fair chance?!  I hate the MUGS!  Criminals! --
Star Kik

     Ho!  We'll get you for that, sucker! -- MUG #48032

Ashley, Ashley, Ashley; some how I don't think you are a basher. -- Luigi

Halinutt -- Thanks for listening to my plea and taking Shy Guy off the throne.  Now
you can write the column.  By the way, Congrats! -- Luigi

Felissa -- The FTF was cool, although I did barely mediocre.  I saw the sands on the
way in, and the sunshine, warmth, and pretty girls were out in spades.  Oh my! --
Goombario

     Why should pretty girls be "in spades"?

Felissa -- Why be good at Sumo when one would rather be good at eat.  Know what I
mean?  Well, maybe they go together.  Hmmm.  Well then .... -- Tubba Blubba, Sumo
Eater Extraordinaire

Tiny Toes -- Tootsies like that are just asking for the iron heel of jealousy to
smash down on them.  Gotta watch out for stuff like that, you know. -- Katirona Murh

Tubba Blubba -- But it makes greasy hash browns. -- Jammy Larke

Kelly -- You probably need to wear more green. -- Felissa Hurm

Star Kik -- You're too short.  I suspected as much.  But listen, all those hits to
chest and head areas, I was AIMING for your feet.  Train your SZ. -- Pendru Rost

Ashley -- Ooooh!  I just can't stand it when other women are taller than I am.  It
makes me SO mad! -- Irvina Korl
P.S.  And then I lose control, and it all goes to pieces.

Star Kik -- Well, this is true. -- Irvina Korl

We salute all who braved the sun and warmth to participate in the tourney. -- Jorja
and a very cold Middle Way
