                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Amazing!  It is downright surprising what one can do if one works long and hard
and learns new skills.  I did, and now I am Duelmaster.  Amazing!
     Just to temper my rising thoughts that maybe I am "wonderful," I must realize
that I have lost nine (9) times.  Nine!  4 strikers.  3 slashers.  2 parry-ripostes.
What does that mean?  It means I need to avoid everybody!  Maybe I can work that out
somehow.  Midas is good at making difficult things happen.
     Some facts for the number-crunchers out there.  Have you ever wanted to know
what Midas's pile of gold warriors looked like at birth?

for an average of 13-10-10-12-15-11-13.  Pretty mediocre, eh?
     Well, I am here.  I meet all the qualifications for Lord Protector, except
Political Points.  I need eight more.  Two more titles.  Help me out here.  Okay?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out WILLAF to see 
what's new.  Too bad, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, but GOLDEN GLADIATORS was just too good to 
be stopped.  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 
893-1150-28 you ask?  (Sure)  PUNNY AMINALS' their name, and fighting's their game!  
MVP award for 56TH AND WABASHA?  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS' proud of him after beating TEN 
OF SWORDS and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  AXTON's match with 
JACK OF HEARTS cost him a loss of 11 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else! 
GOLDEN GLOBE stopped EVEBRINGER dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  PANDORA'S 
CARDS was WILLAF's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What 
kind of warriors are GOLDEN GLADIATORS?  PANDORA'S CARDS, an easy team to beat if I 
ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can BLOOD ON THE TRACKS' 
LITTLE RED BIKE be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out ABEL challenged 
BLACK INDEKKER.  After all, haven't AIMER'S INC and PUNNY AMINALS had a long standing 
duel in WILLAF?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BLACK INDEKKER wants 
me to write about it since he bested ABEL.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  WILLAF is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
