                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Short and sweet.  My column.  (Well, nothing could be as short as the columns
those Serpents Holders pen.)  I won.  It was easy.  Snake was declawed.  (Hey, I
meant his venom had been milked.)
     My favorite names in this arena (not in any order) are:
Hipy Hippy Shake -- Really? (was that first spelling meant?)
Slide To Hell -- Devil's Playground
Black Indekker -- Punny Aminals
Jack Of Hearts -- Blood On The Tracks
Everbringer -- Shadowmongers
Goldplated -- Golden Gladiators (voted the best!)
     Come and get me.
               Goldplated, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly WILLAF games.  SLIDE TO HELL caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested JOHN DERE and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CULT MEMBER put down 
MOONSINGER, causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling 
to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster GOLDPLATED challenged SNAKE last week in 
a match to decide the fate of the throne.  The city has turned out in honor of SNAKE, 
for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole 
city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city WILLAF.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  SERPENTS HOLD 114 is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of GOLDEN GLADIATORS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  JOHN DERE take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in WILLAF.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Golden!  A 5-0?  Golden, I say.  Well done Golden Gladiators.  Bonuses all around. --
Midas

Snake -- I enjoyed challenging you.  I enjoyed beating you.  I enjoy talking down to
you and that bartender. -- Goldplated

Black Indekker -- That win all stemmed from an environment whereby my heart is golden
and yours is apparently black. -- Heart Of Gold

Nightstalker -- How did it feel to be the stalked? -- Golden Flash

Tulane Rhodes -- You are quickly becoming a Golden Gladiator favorite. (wink) --
Golden Globe

Everbringer -- That is a lot of bringing!  I guess you could say I bought that win?
-- Gold Dubloon

Good luck to all in The Mailer.  (Even if one is a BOBbie.) -- Midas

Midas -- I see the curse of the Golden Touch has struck.  Stricken?  You're all over
the front page.  This can't be good! -- Jorja
P.S.  Congratulations.

Midas -- Stinginess isn't good for your soul.  I have your best interests at heart.
-- Black Indekker

Slide to Hell -- Hmm, lots of people, confronted by you, would turn to me.  And a
good thing, too! -- Dee Nile

Mora -- Mulberries.  Pfui. -- John Dere
P.S.  Whoever neutered you was probably doing a good thing.  Although it must make
your life boring.  Which were you originally?

Golden Globe -- I feel like a... bowling alley or something!  My head aches. --
Tulane Rhoades

Heart of Gold -- Heartless of Gold would be more accurate. -- Black Indekker

Derron -- Ack!  Snakes!  Why do you DO your hair that way?  I mean, do you have to
FEED them?  How can you comb them?  What happens when it's time for a hair cut? --
Hori Bull, horribly fascinated
