                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Bruar, thank you for making waves.  The arena needs more of that.  I am sorry
that your aggressive actions have not helped your record, but you are getting closer
and closer.  Maybe, just maybe?
     You guys may not know it, but I am a sports buff, so here are a few of my
sportly thoughts:
     Kansas (The Jayhawks) will win the NCAA (a daughter and son-in-law are grads)
     Golf is my favorite passtime.  (Well, along with reading and DM)
     NCAA football needs a playoff system.
     I gave up on Major League Baseball at the last strike (but have been to many
games)
     Looking for C. J. Spiller to do well in the upcoming Pro Football Draft (Clemson
--daughter two)
     Learned to really enjoy Curling watching the Winter Olympics.
          But enough.  I am here.  Bring your gold.  Come and get me.
               On Golden Pond, Duelmaster III

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  WILLAF needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for MORGAR?  
MAXIMUM RESULTS' proud of him after beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT and getting 15 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  BRUAR's match with SHADOW DANCER cost him a 
loss of 9 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause it's Number One!  
BAABRA LAMMONT knows this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is 
like something else!  ON GOLDEN POND stopped BAABRA LAMMONT dead in hers tracks!  Who 
was the wiseguy that said WILLAF's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping 
Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of MAXIMUM RESULTS 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  I don't know what GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from MAXIMUM RESULTS, that's fer sher.  Like, is 
BRUAR popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of WILLAF!  He's got a 
12-14-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Jealous Jeans -- It was my lucky day with that surprisingly satisfying start.  I
guess you could say I took a bite out of you. -- Gold Tooth

Eleesia -- Well, you got me.  Bared me to the core. -- Golden Delicious

Cris Croft -- Well done.  It was not one of my days to soar. -- Golden Eagle

Fangs Ardente -- Sssshhhhhhhh! -- Silence Is Golden

Bruar -- The waters are again calm.  It was another big wave, though. -- On Golden
Pond

Greetings, all.  Hope this finds you well and wealthy.  Especially wealthy.  Invest
in gold, I tell you!  Glad to see my Gladiators squeak through with a 3-2 this round.
The competition in Willaf is getting rougher and tougher.  Golden Delicious will be
my only rep at The Mailer, and as she is timed, she will be absent until after the
tournament.  Good luck to all. -- Midas of Golden Gladiators

Silence Is Golden -- Fangs Ardente

Shadow Dancer -- Yes, well, my blade is a little more substantial than a shadow, and
besides, you needed a loss.  More balanced. -- Baabra Lammont

Golden Eagle -- Ha!  I knew you'd have trouble carrying off a whole ox. -- Cris Croft

Stoga Steel -- Well, I guess I can lose that one without embarrassment.  Good thing!
-- Sardo Grackel

Morgar -- Why, thank you!  I don't mind if I do. -- Allie Barnett

Silence Is Golden -- And don't you forget it! -- Baabra Lammont

On Golden Pond -- I do not want you out of here, I want you all drained out!  My
great axe makes nice holes in your damns. -- Bruar
P.S.  I will come swimming again--plenty of waves and splashes!!

Sardo Grackel -- Seems you win ONE, you lose one.  At least we could have learned
some skills. -- Stoga Steel

Golden Delicious -- Yes, you were. -- Eleesia

If finding your favorite numbers makes your warrior perform better, does finding your
favorite weapon add still more?  Always a curious dog... -- Coyote
