                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Three DM Titles.  What's to talk about?  Come and take it away from me if you
can?  Can you?
     Gold is the color of my true love's hair.
                         Goldplated, Duelmaster III

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome WILLAF.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with NIGHTSTALKER?  
It actually beat GOLDEN GLADIATORS' GOLDEN GLOBE, and walked away with 20 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at SHADOWMONGERS while they watched NIGHTSTALKER 
clobber GOLDEN GLOBE.  He lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Try as he might, TWILO TALON wasn't good enough at persuading GOLDPLATED to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  WILLAF thinks REALLY? and 
their 45-44-8 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  Management 
must be dealin', as the boys at GOLDEN GLADIATORS ain't reelin'!  REALLY?'s mad!  
What do people see in MOONSINGER?  Hers 10-4-0?  SHADOWMONGERS ain't talkin', but 
she's got 68 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  EVEBRINGER was plum wore out after GOLD DUBLOON pounded 'im 
silly in a Bloodfeud.  SHADOWMONGERS'll have to get a little better before going 
after GOLD DUBLOON again!  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Veteran Mercenary -- And to think I was the veteran around here?  Guess I showed you!
-- Goldplated, Duelmaster

Well Don -- I didn't like that at all.  I feel like I am talking to TUM when I say
"Well, Don, that sucked!" -- Golden Flash (too much flash, not enough gold)

What's this?  Whip Sawyer!?  I had to fight someone with 300% of my experience and
FE.  Who can I speak to at the MUGs about this?  Pshaw!!!!!!! -- Golden Girl

1-2?  That was not golden at all, my well-paid warriors.  Perhaps you should step up
the pace? -- Midas, Golden Gladiators

Midas -- Target?  Ah well, it's inevitable, I suppose.  I do appreciate the warning.
It's refreshing to see someone else looking out for my well-being.  Can I take the
heat?  I really do prefer the hot days of summer rather than these dreadfully dreary
days of winter.  Sandbagger?  Only when the rains threaten to flood. *grin*
Seriously though, I don't consider myself a sandbagger but I guess it depends on your
definition.  Any more questions?  I gotta get back to my studies.  Sounds like
there's going to be a test. -- Well Don

Golden Flash -- More like a fizzle, but I do want to thank you.  Without your
contributions my record wouldn't be so "fine." -- Well Don

Goldplated -- On the Isle?  No way!  I'd just be one among many there, and I don't
care for that.  I'm going to travel!  Sun, sand, and a big river, maybe an asp or a
crocodile?  I'll have to look around. -- Dee Nile

Nightstalker -- I don't actually mind an uneven duel, but couldn't it be uneven in my
favor?  Ah, well.  Good fight and all that. -- Black Indekker, doomed by a bad style
choice

Moonsinger -- Very, um, very tuneful.  Yes, tuneful.  Rather like... a wolfess on the
hunt.  I feel hunted! -- Hori Bull

Iron Maiden -- That's quite a corset you have there. -- Sofa'yam

Golden Girl -- Aha!  The only win on our team, I like it.  Thanks!  Let me buy you a
drink!  Heck, let me buy you dinner.... -- Whip Sawyer
