                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I know.  I know.  You expect a DM Column out of me.  And this is my fifth
Duelmaster Title, so I should write something for you all, shouldn't I?  Okay, how
about some random thoughts....
     The boss is still in pain from two teeth cappings yesterday.  The wimp!
     We GGs went 4-0 third round and are 11-2-2 for the last three.  Two kills!?
     The Consortium sent little and earned little in this last Mailer.  (Watch out,
Philly)
     I should be a Lord Protector by now, but The Commission doesn't like me learning
all those attack skills.
     The boss had his first hole-in-one (#16 Summerset) a few weeks ago.
     The boss's wife is an artist.  Check out sharonrosesmith.blogspot.com
     Willaf is a fun place to be, but The Consortium favorite arena is Aruak City,
The Heart And Soul of Andoria DM11.
     Join The Turf Wars in DM47 for the funnest event in all the arenas.  (Starts
July)
     The boss's youngest daughter is getting married in June in Charleston, SC, in
the Citadel Chapel.
     Fifty-one begonias, 9 pansies, 12 marigolds, and 6 shrubs-- the boss planted
this w/e, plus mowing the back (bluegrass) and the front (bermuda).  Love the South!
     Is any of this really relevant?
Enough said.  I am here.  Come and get me.  Have fun.  No killing, now!

                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SLIDE TO HELL win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
CHICKEN WHISPERER beat GOLD DUBLOON and GOLD DUBLOON lost 9 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as RIPLEY BYRD takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  MAXIMUM RESULTS was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  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!  MISDIAGNOSIS was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I suspect either a 21 
will or a 21 ego on this one, but MISDIAGNOSIS has challenged up by 27 in an attempt 
against JOHN DERE.  Well, ok, the upstart knave (where've I heard that before?) won 
this match and gained 24 points to boot!  Ha ha ha, JOHN DERE.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for WILLAF's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Ripley -- LET YOU WIN?  Why, that would not be good, and then I could not really
be... Good As Gold
P.S.  You fight well for a byrd, you know?

Dr. Grimley -- Odd?  Well shucks, then.  Let me just say, "Welcome.  I am glad you
are here."  Was that better?  We Golden Gladiator types are often odd, and, as
manager, I am the oddest.  Anyway, toodleoo.  And may all your strategies be gold. --
Midas (Consortium affiliated)

Sheesh, I look at that dead list and I find my aggressive golden ones have killed
some real friends, and all I can say is "I am sorry."
Chance of Serpents Hold (Khisanth) RIP
Buckets Of Rain  of Blood On The Tracks (Dr. Grimley) RIP
-- Midas (truly sad and apologetic)

Really? -- That was a really fine point gain!  No wonder we Golden Gladiators avoid!
Really! -- Midas

Horus Mann -- I can say that felt good and I will say no more. -- Good As Gold

Tricilliad -- I am not so sure how I can do that to you, but the results feel pretty
golden and golden luck is good luck.  Know what I mean? -- Goldplated

What The Heck -- I thought "What the heck?" and took a chance and challenged.  And,
what the heck, it turned out fine. (for me) -- Gold Futures

Rypley Byrd -- You may be charming, but I am a real gold charm. -- Gold Carm

All, enjoy life.  Be well.  Be safe.  Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Midas and The
Golden Gladiators

Midas -- You know how it is with point gains, they just sneak up, stay for a week or
so, and leave again without warning.  Here today and gone tomorrow.  Fickle.  All
that stuff. -- Jorja

Gold Dubloon -- I would have shown you a very good time, if you hadn't rushed off
like that. -- John Dere

GoldPlated -- It was merely the truth, and the truth, after all, shall make you free.
Or so They say. -- Horus Mann

Chicken Whisperer -- You seem to be a strange person, but I salute your successful
bloodfeud. -- Tulane Rhoades

Good as Gold -- And what good is gold, eh?  Can you eat it?  Burn it during a cold
winter?  Wear it (other than as jewelry)?  Bah. -- Horus Mann

Gold Charm -- How was that "unbelievable"?  Did you pull a win out of nothing by the
use of magic? -- Ripley Byrd

The Kung-Fu Master didn't really do that.  It was all an illusion.  A CRUEL illusion.
-- Dee Nile

M. Chardinee wasn't paying attention!  He barely noticed when I hit him.  He was
IGNORING me. -- John Dere
