                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Before I head off to prep for Tampa, I will write a DM Column. Duelmasters should 
feel both honored and obligated to do so -- and I do and shall.
     I have said so much in the past that I will only be able to share with you what 
the lot of Famous Archers looked like at birth. Here we are:

                                 ST -- 11,12,15,15,21
                                 CN -- 8,8,9,9,18
                                 SZ -- 7,7,12,12,13
                                 WT -- 5,15,16,17,21
                                 WL -- 9,9,15,16,21
                                 SP -- 4,5,9,11,16
                                 DF -- 7,7,11,11,16

     We are an average 15-10-11-15-14-9-10; not bad, really. 
     With that I leave you for a while. Good luck all.

                                          -- Green Arrow, DMV

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at V IS FOR VIOLINS left the arena dejected, after being 
kicked out of the top spot by FAMOUS ARCHERS.  Good show!  Practice pays for LEGOLAS, 
who pummelled AMBITIOUS GUARD, to pocket 14 points.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 4 points to ARC D'WOOF.  
(Discrete enough, MELEE?) A certain someone saw GREEN ARROW at The Lost Hope Inn with 
the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  
What can be a greater victory?  WILLIAM TELL has taken his place as the top, as LIN 
TIRIAN's new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of SAND DANCERS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of FAMOUS ARCHERS, so did that sorry team shy from 
SAND DANCERS Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and CLINT is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't BAD BLOOD II proud!  Word has it WRANGLE suffered a 
romantic setback.  Note how he challenged EYELENE, 27 points his senior.  The gods 
smiled upon WRANGLE, in his upset fight against EYELENE.  WRANGLE gets a win, 24 
points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?)  
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LIN TIRIAN is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid LIN TIRIAN 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Yeah, it's true. I am off tourney-hoppin', so I won't be back in the arena until after 
Tampa. (Assuming I live through it!) -- Green Arrow

Green Arrow, we are all proud of you. -- Arrowhead

Lambda Doradus, phbbbt! -- Robin Hood
P.S. I will get your treasures yet!
P.P.S. Arrowhead really hates Lambda Chi, his Sigma Alpha Epsilon rivals in college.

Ambush? How in the heck did I get by an ambush? Good reactions and plenty of protein 
and caffeine, I guess. -- William Tell

Bill Board, a salute to you. -- Green Arrow

Health. Humility. Honor. Thwack! -- Arrowhead

Green Arrow -- Be *careful* with those challenges!  What if you'd *lost*?  Then I'd 
have to do the column, and I don't want to.  You're much better at it. -- Bill Board

Melee -- Ah, the weight of experience tells.  Sometimes, yeah, it tells how 
experienced I am at losing, but not always.  Yeah, if I hadn't lost the chase, I 
wouldn't be here now, but I'm still alive in a risky profession. -- Arc d'Woof
P.S.  I can't really be blamed for getting thrown in here.  The provocation was 
overwhelming.

So it's YOU, Des Benbow.  Too bad you didn't get killed when you were hiring out to 
whatever low-life wanted his neighbor's kingdom.  It'd give you a better life than you 
have now. -- Eyelene, feeling uncharitable

Pushing Daisies -- I suppose you have to be pushy.  A woman with a beard has problems 
socially, right?  But as female beards go, it's a good one. -- Fielder

Clint -- That clint in your eye put me off. -- Tinker Samuel, wishing he was back on 
the road mending pots

Green Arrow -- No, what do you mean? -- Sand Dancers

William Tell -- Whatever.  That's still a win in my book! -- Ambush

Arc D'Woof -- Well struck.  What is a D'Woof anyway?  Are you canine royalty? -- Melee

Arc -- Well, dang. -- Melee

I put the wrangle in the angle of the dangle for that Fratsfa Slave! -- Wrangle

(Lambda Doradus) "Clap your hands everybody, and everybody clap your hands!
We're Lambda Lambda Lambda and... We're here to moo
We come here on stage tonight to do a show for you"
(Arena spectators) "Go home, tourney scam!"
(Lambda Doradus) "But I'm a lambda lambda man!"
(Arena spectators) "Go home, tourney guy!"
(Lambda Doradus)  "But I'm so cool just watch me in the sky!"
