                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I said in my last article to tune in next time to hear about colors.
Sometimes a gal can be confused about what is, and what is not, a color.  I said that
The Consortium Boss loved colors and The Flower Girls were named after colors, but I
wasn't exactly right was I?  I mean a flower is not exactly a color is it?  No matter
what the bosses think.  So maybe I misspoke a little.  But flowers have pretty
colors, don't they?
     What do you expect?  I've been Duelmaster so long I cannot remember things?
Anybody have any idea how many crowns I have?  I'll have to go back and count.
     Well, and here is another.  Go figure.
         Hugs and kisses ... Insolent Iris

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of FRATSFA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, SITTEES.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
AARDVARK HAMMERZ was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  What's with 
PAINFUL PEONY?  It actually beat SITTEES' SUE SOON, and walked away with 13 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at SITTEES while they watched OAK LEE clobber 
FIERY.  He lost 6 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
Apparently FRATSFA isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The 
Dreaded Duelmaster got 4 challenges this turn!  See how the Duelmaster challenged 
BLOOD AND GUTS!'s PAS DE QUARTIER?  That sort of initiative is how she got where she 
is now.  Try as he might, PAS DE QUARTIER wasn't good enough at persuading INSOLENT 
IRIS to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some 
rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, FLOWER GIRLS! 
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SITTEES ain't reelin'!  FLOWER GIRLS' mad! 
     Warriors of FRATSFA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  SIGISMUND was 
plum wore out after IRMINSUL pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  THE GENTILES'll have 
to get a little better before going after IRMINSUL again!  How long have I been here? 
I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

every minute of it.  I would have enjoyed it more had it lasted longer, but,
nevertheless, it was fulfilling. (wink) -- Insolent Iris
