                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow!  Who else in Alastari annals is 0-3 in Duelmaster fights, yet a Duelmaster?
Clearly it is luck.  And I'm not that good at all, so it is even more luck.  I like
luck.  Yes, I do.
     While I am here, I want to wish Maximum Results good luck.  After all, I can't
be here long, can I?  Wait!  My teammates have the challenging category below me
blocked! And filled with ONLY GG's!  I think I will like this!  Just watch me lose to
an NPC.  If so, I would deserve the rotten luck, wouldn't I?
     Anyway, come and get me. (if you can.)
          On Golden Pond

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in WILLAF, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  MAXIMUM RESULTS 
posted a nice gain, to come in 3rd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for 
STOGA STEEL, who pummelled CULT MEMBER, to pocket 15 points.  GOLDEN EAGLE certainly 
had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to BRUAR and losing 10 points in 
the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by KHALHUMS 
DWARF, of WILLAF, who despite a 0-0-0 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!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of PUNNY AMINALS, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of GOLDEN GLADIATORS, so did that sorry 
team shy from PUNNY AMINALS  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
WILLAF would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in WILLAF is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid WILLAF farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

What?!!!  Silvia nearly butchers me and I am Duelmaster?  Midas must have used some
of his massive gold to pay off somebody!  Gosh!  What a splash! -- On Golden Pond

Stoga Steel -- Well, er, a, I have to beat someone; right?  And you were there.  And,
well, I did it.  I spread my wings. -- Golden Eagle

Baarbra Lammont -- I'll take it! -- Gold Cache

What ? The Hirakowa bloodfeud for his killing of Goldwater expired with the Yamamama
as a four time no-show?  Tsk.  Tsk.  What a brazen skunk! -- Midas

Coyote -- Live, learn, and gain on me.  Do it! -- Midas

Baarbra -- Yes to that man thing.  Yes! -- Silence Is Golden (and men like it)

On Golden Pond -- Despite that, I hand over the title in the assurance that you will
write a column, at the least.  And in the knowledge that there isn't anyone else in
reach anyway. -- Silvia Minno

Hey, I felt sorry for the Veteran Mercenary, okay?  Sue me.  He's old, he's tired,
and his pension is non-existant.  The man's gotta live. -- Marey D'Nuit

Gold Cache -- It does no good if you leave it in a lockbox, dammit.  Gold is meant to
be spent. -- Baabra Lammont

Damsel Dacy -- Ah, come on, lady, is it too much to ask for you to wear an underwired
nightgown?  I like my meals attractively presented. -- Fangs Ardente

Bruar -- I've given the matter thought, and my guess is that your problem is the
shield.  It takes up too much of your attention. -- Cris Croft

Silence Is Golden -- It does indeed.  I wonder if we can make something of that? --
Baabra Lammont
