                           Notes from the REAL Arena Champ

Poser.

Lickspittle miscreant bespawler.

Dimwitted, dew-beating abydocomist. 

His "DM Column" ought to be entitled "Duelwisher's Column -- Notes from the Arena 
Chimp."

"Weaponmaster", indeed.  Last fight of his I watched, he showed up with a weapon he 
was unsuited to six ways to Sunday.  Very unattractive.  And lost badly.  There was 
blood coming out of his eyes, well, blood coming out of his wherever.  It was a 
disaster and he lost very, very badly.  I've challenged him very publicly, for the 
last several turns, and he has avoided me.  And look at those hands, they are very 
small.  Sorry, but there is no STAR on stage tonight. 

It's apparent that the Arvat political establishment has it out for me.  I can't 
understand it, but it's a total disaster.  It's very, very bad and they've treated me 
very poorly.   I am a man of the people and the fact that the DM politicos don't know 
how to deal with me is not surprising.   The system is rigged, it's crooked.   There 
was no voting.  The people out there in Arvat are going crazy, because they weren't 
given a vote.  "Weaponmaster" was given to them by politicians, it's a crooked deal.  
Now they're trying to buy all the people who voted for me.  They're offering them 
trips, they're offering them all sorts of things to vote for someone other than me.  
It's very, very bad and it's a disaster.

Little Weaponmaster is unattractive, inside and out.  I mean, can you imagine that 
face at the Isle?  And Lying Den is sending Arvat people that have lots of problems 
and they're bringing those problems to us.  They're bringing sensitivity training and 
participation awards.  They're bringing tissue diplomatic notes.  

We can't stand for this, it's time we Made Arvat Great Again!

I think the main difference between me and the posers is that I'm more honest and my 
women are more beautiful.  In fact, if Debby Tonte were my daughter, I'd probably 
still date her.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, well, well my simple little friends.  Gaze upon me one last time before I travel 
to points beyond most of your comprehension.  Speaking of comprehension, which is a 
really big word for most of you, how am I the pinnacle of success here in Arvat?  Den 
tells me that I am average at best, but yet I absolutely destroy Crying Ben's best two 
fights in a row.  You expect Dominatus Non Viz to perform well in the pending tourney?  
Cough on your ignorance Crying Ben, for if my mediocre talents have bested him I 
expect the only thing he will bring back from the tourney is soiled undergarments and 
the varsity letter jacket of some guy named Eddie.  While talking about my recent 
exploits, it should be known that Crying Ben requested from Den and was granted the 
promise that I would fight his Striker Diplomatic Immunity.  Sadly, we were not 
surprised at all to find Crying Ben has no integrity and instead used his TV Challenge 
from the afore mentioned loser of destiny.  I guess he just likes to act like the nice 
guy with an honest personality.  Den assures me that is a mistake he will not make a 
second time; trust will not be something he exchanges with Crying Ben any longer.  
This turn I challenged All Guns Blazing because I think that is a really dumb name and 
he has a crappy record and I want to make it more crappy.

                                          -- Duelmaster and Immortal,
                                             The Weaponmaster

P.S. 14(+1) 15 5 15 17 9 11(+1) Adv Exp Att(+2), Adv Exp Init, Adv Exp Def(+2). 
My management brilliance knows no bounds, with this normal endurance normal damage Lunger I held the throne multiple turns.  You guys really need to learn this game.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARVAT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but CON + INSULT really goofed with their 1-3-0.  
NOTORIOUS like really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 7th.  Way to go!  One team 
deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 2 after going 3-1-0.  Keep it up, IL 
MALVAGIO!  Talk about yer major upsets!  PATRIOT's match with CARNEFICINA cost him a 
loss of 11 points!  Like IL MALVAGIO's SPUTO is sweating since he got Bloodfeuded by 
Duelmaster THE WEAPONSMASTER!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  THE 
WEAPONSMASTER stopped SPUTO dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said 
ARVAT's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  SECRET SQUIRRELS was the most avoided team.  Is a 305-306-14 record 
really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are CON + INSULT?  SECRET 
SQUIRRELS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is STRAWMAN popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all 
of ARVAT!  He's got a 17-12-1, is that good?  I'm not so sure DOMINATUS NON VIZ knew 
all the facts when he challenged STRAWMAN of CON + INSULT.  I saw DOMINATUS NON VIZ 
stumbling and dribbling at The Dripping Blade last week...  Like, was that some 
fighting on DOMINATUS NON VIZ's part, or what?  And he got 13 points out of it!  
(besides getting in my report)  Poor STRAWMAN.  For sure, I was holding my breath 
when I found out KILROY challenged BE TRANSPARENT.  After all, haven't SECRET 
SQUIRRELS and CON + INSULT had a long standing duel in ARVAT?  It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but BE TRANSPARENT wants me to write about it since 
she was overcame by KILROY.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARVAT ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

The only bad thing about a 4-0 as that it could've been a 5-0.  We're cautiously 
optimistic over here at the Notorious stable. -- D. Noble

Welcome back to The Philanthropists, and a warm welcome to Arkenseal Army.  If we are 
not careful this will become the largest arena in all of Alastari! -- Notorious

Opportunity Cost -- One fight I do that (dodge everything and swing back), and the 
next fight I can't dodge a draft.  Thanks for making our fight "one of the good ones"! 
-- All Guns Blazing 

Hurrik Hornbeard -- Evidently it is easier to hit dwarfs with horns in their beards 
than the ones with casks in their beards.  Perhaps you shall see me again. -- Lefty 
Morales

Crying Ben -- My disappointment that you did not follow through on your promise for 
the title match is vast.  If you wish to portray yourself as an honest player, perhaps 
you should act the part.  I suppose it was your only hope of sneaking a win past me, 
but alas that was not to be either.  Much like your haircut, it was a bad choice. --
