                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Dear Brandon Rockwood, our Khalhums Dwarf!  How much I owe him for his patient
instruction.  Although I believe he's actually from somewhere near Murska rather than
Khalhums.  Probably just as well.

                                     Silvia Minno

P.S.  Dagger, very low/low, bash?  Ugh.  Looks like I should buy stock in an armoury.

                                      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 GOLDEN EAGLE?  He actually beat 
MAXIMUM RESULTS' STOGA STEEL, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at MAXIMUM RESULTS.  STOGA STEEL lost 10 points to GOLDEN EAGLE.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe STOGA STEEL will provide more easy wins...  
Apparently WILLAF isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The 
Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (ON GOLDEN POND 
19-10-0) challenged another Duelmaster (SILVIA MINNO 23-5-1).  Life goes on.  Try as 
it might, ON GOLDEN POND wasn't good enough at persuading SILVIA MINNO to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  WILLAF thinks PUNNY 
AMINALS and their 683-854-22 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
The bums at GOLDEN GLADIATORS couldn't face the challenges from PUNNY AMINALS!  No 
excuse for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Midas -- I always keep faith.  Now it seems there are three of us left here for now.
I plan on gaining on you, and learning. -- Coyote

Fangs -- Vampire?  No, you will always be a slug.  And gods willing, I will smash
them teeth out of your face when we meet again. -- Bruar

     Slugs have teeth?  I never guessed!

Congratulations and wowsers to Lord Protectors Silvia Minno and Marey D'Nuit!  You
guys have earned it, have gained our respect, and have made us wish you would
graduate now.  (wink) -- Midas, Golden Gladiators

Hirokawa -- Are you hiding from us and our bloodfeud?  Are Yamamamas always such
cowards? -- Midas and The Golden Gladiators
P.S.   Oh, you are smart; I wouldn't want to fight us either.  But you are a pluck-
pluck-chicken!

Bruar -- You were simply too good for me.  I bow to your skill.  Salute. -- Golden
Eagle

Cris Croft -- What would I do without you? -- Gold Cache

Baarbra L -- I had fun, as usual.  Did you know we have spent 33 minutes together?
Time adds up, you know. -- Silence Is Golden, usually

Silvia Minno -- Congrats on your Duelmastership.  Enjoy your last one to the fullest.
-- The Golden Gladiators

Silence Is Golden -- Do you ever get the idea that we may be seeing too much of each
other?  Maybe we need to get out and meet other people (men). -- Baabra Lammont

Surely somebody WARNED the Venomous Concubine about the general unreliability of
Insurance Agents? -- Marey d'Nuit

Gold Cache -- Well, I like it better than copper cache, or even silver cache. -- Cris
Croft

Ah!  The Ambitious Guard is an orc.  I do like biting orcs, they have such vigorous
blood.  Not intellectual, perhaps, but who wants a meal of intellectual blood?
Insipid stuff, I assure you! -- Fangs Ardente

On Golden Pond -- As you see, I live to serve. -- Silvia Minno

Oooppps -- My ads did not print last turn.  Sorry. -- Coyote

Fangs -- Vampire?  No, you are just a scum-sucking slug to me.  I will see you on the
sands again. -- Bruar

Midas -- Faith I have, experience not so much, but I will be here for awhile. --
Coyote

     Good!

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
