                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That makes ten titles.  You can applaud me or congratulate me or praise me for
the great feat.  Or, you can decide to bemoan my greediness and unwillingness to
share.  It sort of reminds me of that age old business story....
     A large American shoe company sent two sales reps to two separate parts of the
Austrailian outback to see if they could drum up business with the Aborigines.  Some
time later the company received telegrams (certainly prior to current technologies)
from both agents.  The first said, "No business here... natives don't wear shoes."
The second said, "Great opportunity here... natives don't wear shoes!"
     I think my holding the Duelmaster Title represents a glass half full.  What do
you think?
                                   Goldplated DMX

                                      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 HAZEL NUTTE?  
She actually beat WILLAF's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and walked away with 15 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at SHADOWMONGERS while they watched EVEBRINGER 
clobber GOLDEN GLOBE.  He lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Apparently WILLAF isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  
The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (WELL DON 14-2-0) 
challenged another Duelmaster (GOLDPLATED 33-16-0).  Life goes on.  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for GARBAGE PAIL KIDS' outstanding member, Duelmaster WELL DON. 
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS ain't reelin'!  DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND's mad!  Taunt your opponent BLACK 
INDEKKER!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 18 
points!)  TEETER-SLAUGHTER should have an easy win.  TEETER-SLAUGHTER defeated BLACK 
INDEKKER.  I bet TEETER-SLAUGHTER could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, PUNNY AMINALS 
knows who to set their sights on.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
WILLAF is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Well, Goldplated, even I will have to salute you for number ten.  Kudos. -- Midas

Misdiagnosis -- I think you missed another one.  I hope your practice isn't suffering
too badly. -- Goldplated

     That's why they call it "practice."

Moonsinger -- Whatever I said last time. -- Golden Globe

Black Indekker -- Maybe you shoulda been a Sunbeem or a Dremell, or a Rivale? --
Golden Girl

Aaron -- I cannot believe I did it!  Got me one of those nemisis styles.  Oh, yeah!
-- Golden Flash

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  And a little gold. -- Midas

The corn was knee high on the fourth of July, as it is supposed to be.  But NOW!  Now
it's already shoulder high!  Corn-growing weather, indeed.

One-four today, and a shameful thing it is to see.  At least I won my fight! -- Whip
Sawyer the Successful

Whip -- Yeah, right, over the Fratsfa Slave.  We are SOOO not impressed. -- Hazel
Nutte
