                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And "Tag," I'm it.  Duelmaster position is mine once again.  Judging by the
looks of things, I'd say that Gold Plated did nothing other than sit around and
polish his armor, what with all the empty cans of polish and rags strewn about.  Next
time, clean up your mess!
     Well, that's all for now.  It's HOT and I gotta find me some shade.

                                          -- Well Don

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
WILLAF brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see WHIP SAWYER win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
AMBITIOUS GUARD beat HAZEL NUTTE and HAZEL NUTTE lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, WILLAF may be getting bland, as WELL DON 
stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling 
you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, WILLAF?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  WILLAF, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
SHADOWMONGERS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, EVEBRINGER was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in WILLAF to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Goldplated -- Glass half full?  Why are you dithering around with that instead of
getting it topped up? -- Jorja

Golden Girl -- Nonsense.  I realize that a sweet little brainless bit of fluff like
you wouldn't realize it, but there is NOTHING better than my brand. -- Black Indekker

Golden Girl -- You should sue him for inflamation of character. -- Hazel Nutte
