                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I almost wish you would've won that one Moonsinger.  At least then I wouldn't
wonder at what my record could've been had I chosen a normal strategy wen I
challenged and lost to you last time.  Oh well, 20/20 hindsight...usually.
     Time is short.  Spring is here and it's a very busy time for the boss man.  Air
conditioning season and he's shorthanded.  He will do his best to remain vocal here
and elsewhere, but no promises.
     Avoiding the Gold as usual.  Once again will take whatever random match-up comes
my way.

                           Well Don

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for EVEBRINGER, who pummelled 
GOLDPLATED, to pocket 21 points.  WELL DON found out being WILLAF's Duelmaster isn't 
all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  What can be a greater victory?  
MISDIAGNOSIS has taken his place as the top, as WILLAF's new Duelmaster.  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 GOLDEN GLADIATORS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No 
need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DEVIL'S 
PLAYGROUND, so did that sorry team shy from GOLDEN GLADIATORS GOLDEN GIRL challenged 
AARON!  Who says GOLDEN GLADIATORS are just a bunch of wimps!  GOLDEN GIRL of GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS kept hers wits as she defeated AARON.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in WILLAF is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for WILLAF?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Twilo Talon -- Was that a TV I saw?  Kudos for bringing glory to Willaf.  And
congrats on the Lord protectorship. -- Midas

Chief, Tribal Manager -- Of course a warrior can start with negative in a skill.  It
probably happens more than one thinks.  Design a few total parry scum and you will be
mortified! -- Midas (ever the helpful and often mortified)

An opher?!  0-3?!  Now I am REALLY mortified. -- Midas (unwilling to admit he
probably deserves it)

Punny Aminals -- Look at that BIG 56 point gain!  You're killing us! -- Midas
(gasping in awe)

Everbringer -- Thanks to that beating, I am somewhat oblong.  At least you didn't
pound me into a square.  Salute. -- Golden Globe

Aaron -- I think I just completely and utterly hate you guys from Aimer's Inc! --
Golden Flash

Black Indekker -- You were the true warrior.  I, instead, fought like a southern
bimbo. -- Golden Girl (alluding to her roots)

May you ever have gold to spend. -- Midas

Well, Don, you seem to have made it back from the tourney.  Congratulations. -- Jorja

Chief -- Yes, a warrior can start with negative skills in some areas.

Further, I have received your diplo, and those are not questions I can help with.  I
would if I could, but I just don't do the number-crunching thing.  I hope you have
asked Midas these questions, also, because he DOES do the numbers bit, and quite
effectively. -- Jorja, regretfully

Wow, a five-oh turn!  True, three of those wins were over standbys, and pathetic
standbys at that, but still.  Five-oh!  This doesn't often happen in an arena with
active managers.  This is so cool! -- the Punny Aminals, dazzled and bemused

Our congratulations to Twilo Talon. -- Jorja and the Punny Aminals

Golden Girl -- Definitely a dazzling sight, but I *can* focus if I really try.  And
now that the fight is over, I could happily focus on you in a less adversarial
way...? -- Black Indekker

Abel -- Armor is your friend. -- Hori Bull
