                   Goldenrod, THE Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of WILLAF.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
LAZARUS, who pummelled EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 18 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 11 points to O 
PUNCHA.  (Discrete enough, GIL O'TEEN?) Well, Duelmaster GOLDENROD challenged ARENA 
FELINES' FELIX.  Is a 17-2-0 good enough?  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by FELIX, of ARENA FELINES, who despite a 31-18-1 couldn't overcome 
WILLAF's Number 1.  Word has it one team in WILLAF is using psychics to predict wins. 
They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of YAMABUSHI 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, GOLDEN GLADIATORS scurried away from YAMABUSHI.  Oh, the 
shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, FELIX is the most challenged warrior.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

PJ -- Nope, purely old and gold.  (Well, so mom and dad said.)  Hardness?  I didn't 
know you were observing so closely and noticed such things!  (wink)  That greenish 
tint is really my envy showing for all the good fighters with whom I have to compete.
-- Old Gold

Punh Jently -- Of course the babes love me!  Guys too!  Everybody loves me!  And I 
love them!  It is neat being ambidextrous, or whatever they call it.  It is great, 
too, being Duelmaster, in case you didn't notice. -- Goldenrod

Punh -- Then again, it could be old age and forgetfulness of the manager.  (Please 
keep this confidential.) -- Midas

M. Chardinee -- Thank you for being there for us and providing another golden moment 
(or two) for our clan. -- Old Gold and Gold Filling

Go'dedrod -- (sneezing three times)  Berry well dod. -- Punh Jently

Gil O'Teen -- Ha!  You can hand it out, eh, but you can't take it coming back.  Ha!
-- O. Fish

Liza Lott -- And I hope that "win" was an example! -- Ketl Physhe

Malcorn Insurgent?  Why don't they stay home and out of our way?  We have to deal 
with the Stormcrowe Infiltrators, after all. -- O Puncha

Old Gold -- Antique value, after all, is very important.  New gold doesn't bring as 
much. -- Punh Jently

Gold Filling -- Of course I would hit you during a match!  It's in my job 
description.  Right here:  "Pose for the fans, demonstrate the superior quality of 
Arlej's Armor (tm), and hit Gold Filling." -- Punh Jently
