                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You have got to be kidding.  Me?  Duelmaster?  I guess Goldplated really didn't
want to write another column.  I see that Gold Bubloon raised his intimidation factor
up another notch.  With that being said, he gets my challenge this turn.  so I'll
either retain the throne or help to expedite his departure (by graduation that is).
Well, that's my two cents worth... damn, now I guess I'm worthless.

                        Well Don

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon WILLAF, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Good things come to those who fight well, as AIMER'S 
INC can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays for ALBERT, who pummelled WHIP SAWYER, 
to pocket 19 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ABBOT was winsome, 
after beating HAZEL NUTTE and seeing her lose 8 points.  Well, Duelmaster WELL DON TV 
challenged GOLDEN GLADIATORS' GOLD DUBLOON.  Is a 8-1-0 good enough?  GOLD DUBLOON 
found out that WILLAF isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster 
here!  Word has it one team in WILLAF is taking speech lessons to try to bore their 
opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are WILLAF's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in BLOOD ON THE TRACKS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No 
need to avoid 'em.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, GOLDEN GLADIATORS 
scurried away from BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, 
GOLD DUBLOON could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  WILLAF, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Dripping Blade.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Whew!  No need for me to do a DM Column, now.  That is in Well Don's hands, since he
proved to be my better. -- Goldplated

Black Indekker -- Two in a row. Despite your contrarion statements, I think you like
my flashing!  I know I do. -- Golden Flash

Whip Sawyer -- Back again for more?  I hope you liked it.  Me?  I was glad to get off
the sofa and do some whitewashing. -- Golden Girl

Shadowmongers -- Gee!  Wow!  I apologize for the demise of Nightstalker.  I like to
win, but I didn't mean to do THAT! -- Gold Dubloon (providing his two cents worth)

Gold is the color of my true love's hair.  (And her pocketbook!) -- Midas

Golden Girl -- But I can cuddle you softly. -- Sofa'Yam

Golden Flash -- I can't believe you did that!  I was AHEAD in the third minute. --
Black Indekker, considering the pleasure of seeing you flash along a plank and into
the waters of the bay

56th and Wabasha -- I got hit by the cow-catcher.  Ough. -- Hori Bull

Golden Girl -- You've been taking lessons from Debby Tonte, haven't you?  I'd
recognize that tan anywhere. -- Whip Sawyer

It's easy to ignore a beggar when one has a comfortable place to sit. -- Sofa'Yam

Albert -- There you have it, golem.  Good, maybe, but not quite good enough.  Yet,
anyway. -- Hazel Nutte
