                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One more win!  One more win!  Now that I have those political points, one more
win!  Then, retirement heaven.
     It looks like it is me and you, Penny.  Be gentle.  None of that responsive
stuff, now.  Just mano y mano.  (Do either of us comply?)  One more win.
     There are some pretty hot teams around here that us Golden Gladiators want to
watch out for.  Infested at 5-1-0 and .833?  Serious!  And, of course, the Yamabushi
team is rockin' with a recent killer 7-2-2 three turn average.  Whoa there!  Glad
they are not near me!
     I AM scared up here, but don't take that wrong.  Be careful.  A 7'2" Amazon is
awfully, awfully powerful.
     Hugs and kisses
     Heart Of Gold

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in WILLAF since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  WILLAF 
watched with glee as YAMABUSHI got knocked off top spot by GOLDEN GLADIATORS!  What's 
with STINGING NETTLE?  He actually beat YAMABUSHI's SUIYOBI, and walked away with 22 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MAXIMUM RESULTS while they watched 
STINGING NETTLE clobber SUIYOBI.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Try as she might, PENNY LOPE wasn't good enough at 
persuading HEART OF GOLD to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, MAXIMUM RESULTS!  The bums at YAMABUSHI couldn't face the challenges from 
MAXIMUM RESULTS!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, KILDILLI DALL!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Heart Of Gold!  All right!  Hangin' in there.  One more! -- Midas

Yamabushis -- Wow!  Great turn at 3-0-1 AND Current Top Team!  Dangerous 7-2-2 three
turn record, too!  Avoid city. -- Midas

Coyote -- Surely you jest?  Those were real and true numbers.  Perhaps something in
the presentation misled you?  Perhaps you thought each column represented a warrior?
Actually, the ST of all 5 were lined up low to high, and each Stat presented in the
same fashion.  Hence. Warriors were not individually, but rather collectively,
discernable.  See? -- Midas

Kildilli -- Yep, I have a metal golden heart.  And your brain? -- Heart Of Gold
(chuckling)

Penny -- You loped me good!  Salute. -- On Golden Pond

Dunroe -- Well, I hope you enjoyed That carat casserole.  (snicker) -- 24 Carat

Lyra -- I enjoyed the part where you threw a stick and said "fetch."  But when you
fell down ...? -- Golden Retriever

Heart of Gold -- Indeed, that is exactly it.  (I checked.)  Someone less generous of
spirit would have stuck ME with the column.  Horrible thought! -- Kildilli Dall

On Golden Pond -- Ah, but I came prepared.  I had a life jacket. -- Penny Lope

24 Carat -- I don't like carats.  They make me see orange spots. -- Dunroe Minh

Anis -- Drat, one-shotted.  (wincing)  Good work on your part, though. -- Penny Lopez

Soap Eating Mouse -- I suppose it doesn't do any good to ask you to clean up your
language? -- Ondo Fleur

Heart of Gold -- So?  We also serve who only float around. -- Kildilli Dall

24 Carat -- This is true.  But if you say, "What's up, doc?"... I probably won't
speak to you again for a couple of weeks. -- Dunroe Minh

Lyra -- Blunts are useful, too. -- Ondo Fleur
