                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     When at first you come so so close, try again!  Okay, so I am not a poet!  I
finally crossed the bridge and what do I get?  A Duelmastership and an invite!  Wow.
I am a basher for those who may not know:  17-11-15-15-12-11 at the time of my
invite.  Adv Ex in attack, quarterstaff, VH-M, bash tactic, and parry skills.  Will
anybody please punch Zontani for me as he keeps peeping into the dressing room.
Pervert!  Good luck to all!
                                          Stoga Steel

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in WILLAF, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--PUNNY AMINALS.  
Practice pays for DEE NILE, who pummelled TRICILLIAD, to pocket 16 points.  ANACONDA 
certainly had a baffled expression on its face, after losing to GOLDPLATED and losing 
8 points in the process!  STOGA STEEL successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
LONGING LEGGINGS of EMOTIONAL PANTS.  Does WILLAF have no one talented enough to 
dethrone him?  Word has it one team in WILLAF is using psychics to predict wins.  
They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in WILLAF avoid MAXIMUM RESULTS.  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of GOLDEN GLADIATORS, so did that sorry team shy from MAXIMUM 
RESULTS Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and MORGAR is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't MAXIMUM RESULTS proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid WILLAF farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
