                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

For this column, I thought I would say something nice about all my teammates:
     Golden Eagle - a beautiful bird, more like a teddy bear
     Gold Cache - a nice guy trying to emulate Midas
     Goldbrick - a role model for the ages
     Silence Is Golden - so pretty she ought to be a song
     On Golden Pong - so handsome he ought to be in movies
     Midas - aways pays his bills on time.
Today is the first day of the rest of your lives.  Take a nap.
          Goldbrick

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
WILLAF brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-0 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, MAXIMUM RESULTS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see STOGA STEEL win a fight and 
gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BRUAR beat GOLDEN EAGLE and GOLDEN EAGLE lost 9 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, WILLAF may 
be getting bland, as GOLDBRICK stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From WILLAF's 
trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  WILLAF, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
PUNNY AMINALS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BRUAR was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the WILLAF arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Coyote -- You are no doormat.  You are a fellow Willafian and MOST welcome here. --
Midas
P.S.  My good and old friend, Fandil The Wise of Ardivent, always says "Health.
Humility.  Honor."

     Some prefer to speak of "Willavians."

Veteran mercenary -- I am a veteran too.  I am also a better veteran. -- On Golden
Pond

Cris Croft -- I love to quiet you noisy types! -- Silence Is Golden

Kung-Fu Master -- I fought well, and you fought like Bum-Foo.  That WAS a Duelmaster
fight, you know. -- Goldbrick
P.S.  I wonder how I fared in the Adepts Mailer.  I am guessing 1-3 as I was rather
untimed.

     Goldbrick -- Since they wouldn't have let me keep the title if I'd worked for
     it, why should I work for it? -- Patlirac o'Bhean, Mmaster of Kung-Fu

Damsel Dacy -- You were rather lovely and I was awfully lucky. -- Golden Eagle

Fangs Ardente -- Get your hands out of my supposedly hidden loot! -- Gold Cache
P.S.  Don't tell Midas what you saw.  Please?

We Golden Gladiators are proud of that 5-0.  Yes, indeed. -- Midas

Cris Croft -- You and Fangs A. can eat my steel.  If you do not like my flair, there
are others, who cares!!  You men will submit to me in the future! -- Damsel Dacy

Gold Cache -- Stingy, aren't you?  Although you do share skills well, even if you
hoard your gold. -- Fangs Ardente

Silence Is Golden -- An arguable proposition. -- Cris Croft

Bruar -- Talk about an unfair match, either the handicapper hates you, or there just
wasn't anyone else.  Either way, bad news. -- Baabra Lammont

Stoga Steel -- Flattened!  I didn't realize you were a rolling mill. -- Ghost of Alis
Chamalon

A Beggar?  Pooh. -- Sardo Grackel

Silence Is Golden -- That's okay, we don't need to talk.  How about if I just bite
you? -- Fangs
