                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     No one but M. Chardinee would come forward to duel with me?  Really, I'm not
that scary.

                                    Marey D'Nuit

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to WILLAF once again!  What's with HIROKAWA?  He actually beat 
GOLDEN GLADIATORS' GOLDWATER, and walked away with 30 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at GOLDEN GLADIATORS while they watched GOLD CACHE clobber FANGS 
ARDENTE.  He lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
WILLAF, set your sights on CONVICTED ASSASSIN.  He'll be happy to entertain all 
requests after defeating MAREY D'NUIT.  SILVIA MINNO looked pretty Duelmasterlike as 
she took WILLAF's top spot with 98 points.  Now, what will MAREY D'NUIT do?  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, PUNNY AMINALS!  The 
bums at GOLDEN GLADIATORS couldn't face the challenges from PUNNY AMINALS!  No excuse 
for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, GOLD 
CACHE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of WILLAF unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Death is no 
stranger to a warrior.  GOLDEN GLADIATORS' GOLDWATER led a good life before leaving 
WILLAF.  Many would be proud to leave behind a 7-3-0.  HIROKAWA of YAMABUSHI has 
spared GOLDWATER from the boredom of a warrior's retirement...  But I doubt GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS is grateful.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...--

Baabra Lamont -- I so enjoy our tussles and philosophical discussions about overt
chattiness. -- Silence Is Golden

Captured Orc -- What is your suggestion for the economy and the stimulus?  Can you

Goldwater

     Draw up a list of government agencies and close down every other one. -- Geroge
     Bruk, Captured Orc and Political Theorist

All -- Sorry that I didn't fight last turn, but I was doing what I do best.  (wink)
-- Goldbrick

yourself wrong. -- Baabra Lammont

Am I supposed to be sorry for the Convicted Assassin?  Because I'm not. -- Silvia
