                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Not much to say really.  My match against Gold Dubloon went fairly well.  He
really needs to take some of that gold and purchase some better armor.  Glad I didn't
second guess myself on the strategy.
     Naturally I'll be avoiding all those below me, and not challenging anyone.  Will
take whatever random matchup comes my way.  That is if I managed to return from the
tourney.

                               Well Don

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  WILLAF needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by AIMER'S INC!  
Way to go AIMER'S INC!  The guys at PUNNY AMINALS like really pulled together to get 
a 5-0-1 this turn, moving up by 3.  MVP award for AARON?  AIMER'S INC's proud of it 
after beating GOLDEN FLASH and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
GOLDEN GIRL's match with BLACK INDEKKER cost her a loss of 16 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  WELL DON stopped MOONSINGER dead in hers tracks!  
Who was the wiseguy that said WILLAF's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Dripping Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  SHADOWMONGERS was the most avoided team.  Is a 
32-29-1 record really that scary?  I don't know what GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from SHADOWMONGERS, that's fer 
sher.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Aimer's Inc -- Now THAT was what I call a golden point gain.  Kudos. -- Midas

Aimer's -- I am sorry for the death of DA1.  I really was not trying to kill the
warrior.  I suspect from the name, you may have had something similar in mind,
though.  Anyway, I welcome the blood feud and am really, really glad I am not a total
parry. -- Golden Girl (who can toss a baton with the best of them)

Black Indekker -- I guess it was my day to glow. -- Golden Globe

Everbringer -- I brought it a little closer to ever than you did. -- Goldplated
P.S.  Figure that one out!

Moonsinger -- Wow!  I have to give you credit, pal.  You have staying power.  Salute.
-- Golden Flash

Well Don -- I am not in your league.  Well fought, Champ. -- Gold Dubloon

A salute to Well Don, a mighty piker and the best Willaf has to offer.  Hubba, hubba.
-- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

All -- Can a fighter ever start out with less than zero skills in parry, or any other
area? -- Chief, mgr Tribes

Yes, the Garbage Pail kids are mine. -- Kharadmon

Midas -- Thanks for the congrats.  Wasn't expecting him to climb the ranks that fast.
-- Kharadmon

Golden Flash -- It's mesmerizing, in a horrible sort way.  Like a fishing lure. --
Black Indekker

Abel -- You RUINED my upholstery. -- Sofa'yam

Golden Globe -- I think you'd make a good anchor--thrown over the side in deep water.
-- Black Indekker

Do we want to go into the further details of our oh-fer turn?  No, we do not. -- Hori
Bull, Whip Sawyer, and Hazel Nutte
