                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is MINE!!!  It has taken me a while to get all the hair off my new seat.  I'm
definitely living up to my namesake.  I thought that Jaguarman had more grit, but
what is a poor slasher to do vs. me?  As tradition dictates, the highest ranked
receives my challenge, which means I fight Sasha.  I'm bringing a halberd!!!

                              Your Duelmaster,
                                   Nytemair

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARKERS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, LA PENTARCHIE, since 
CHAMPIONS OF STEEL took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep 
the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for LA PENTARCHIE, 
whose 0-3-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  Ha!  ENTENTER turned their 3-2-0 
turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch YAKUZA's heads swell from their 4-1-0 this 
turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  NYTEMAIR challenged SASHA BAL 
TOR for ARKERS' Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is the 
spice of life, ARKERS may be getting bland, as NYTEMAIR stays top dog in the city.  
The Welcome Wench, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From ARKERS' trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ARKERS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  LA 
PENTARCHIE 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 Z 
GLADIATORZ.  Ha ha ha ha!  SASHA BAL TOR was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a 
little credit to INOCHI of YAKUZA for challenging up by 22 to ZABABA.  INOCHI won to 
get 94 points of recognition.   
     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.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but 
I'll be glad to see CHIANA and LEVIATHAN at The Welcome Wench tonight celebrating 
their bloodfeud victory over DAZZLER.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Sasha -- Maybe you could have, you'll have to come see me when you're ready. -- Chaos
P.S.  Tell Ymir "In his dreams"!

Max von Scum -- Ultimately, I didn't. -- ghost of Minotaur

The Roustabout -- You got roasted all right. -- Saint Seiya

V. Baltimore -- That's what 4-1-0 gets me?  This is getting out of hand.  I am not
getting old! -- Gravedigger

Sensei Jan -- I think you got a little lucky.  I had you scared didn't I? -- Nytemair

Dazzler -- Too much glitter. -- Yor Dethkall

Wow, Sasha, talk about a deserved victory!  I must admire your ability to win really
difficult fights! -- Aujard...after Alain....

Jernig -- I got my name when my manager had a so cute baby...you can guess she is ten
months old now and my name means (feeding) steel bottle!  The part I like is steel.
-- Biberon d'Acier

Madam, not Sir, Sensei Jan(et) -- Hmmmmmmm.  Not enough competition at the top to
suit you VC types?  Perhaps we can add to the pleasure of your day. -- The Z Man

Maximillian -- Salutations, friend.  And to our many other old friends in Arkers, we
send our regards and respect. -- Curator and The Smithsonians

Weapon-9 -- (disappointed look)  I like your sister-weapons better. -- Jernig Mars

Sunfire -- Darn.  I got a really bad sunburn now, wanna guess who's responsible?
Nobody said I needed armor with a high spf. -- Geroge Jim

Gravedigger -- Glad YOU didn't need that grave. -- Feordis Ink
P.S.  Or me either, for that matter.

V.Baltimore etc. -- Drat.  I hate fights that end that way. -- Imber Lack
P.S.  I should at least get chocolate cake.

Moregana -- You're a cute little thing.  Can I use this fight and the similarity of
our names as a pick-up line and take you to dinner? -- Morg Potts

W. Baltimore -- (disappointed look)  I was hoping for chocolate cake.  Ah, well.
That's a better reason for an arena name than some I've heard. -- Jernig Mars

Inochi -- What kind?  (pause to check his own style)  Oh.  (embarrassed look)  She
stopped.  Said she wouldn't hire another total parry all year, and you know she's got
about sixty teams at the moment, so that's a significant vow.  She won't hire a
lunger either.  Women are very strange. -- Feordis Ink

All -- Holy crap!  Did anyone get the license plate number to that broadsword that
ran me over. -- Aerin Sun

Sensei Jan -- Did I hear you say you were looking for some competition on top or near
the throne?  Hello. -- Curator of Smithsonians

Wax on; wax off.  Oops, got my lines messed up. -- Tom Sawyer

Madam Jan- -- Whoops!  Such a mistake on my behalf is unforgivable.  Don't hate me.
I'm definitely not new, however, I even been around longer than you (89).  I'm just
inconsistent and even took a five year break 99-last year.  Now I'm back to stay
normally.  We share several arenas.  I'm in 8, 47, 31, 54 and 22.  This is my home
team.  HAL now has no reason not to print my personals since mine are always mail
sent.  I'm not in any alliance (except in 47 for the TW). -- Blackstorm

Pentarque -- Looky here!  The Frenchman got the two top spots. -- Blackstorm

NEW TEAMS -- Welcome to our little arena.  Hope you enjoy your stay.  Just don't
expect any mercy on the sands. -- Blackstorm and Champions of Steel

Grim -- Definitely not grim enough.  You're lucky to still roam under this accursed
sun. -- Chaos Invaders

may von Scum -- That was a good draw for me, but I'm nuthin special, or am I? --
Saint Seiya

Feordis Ink -- What kind of CN do you have?!?  I need a vacation.  Five losses in a
row and I hate when Blackstorm looks slant-eyed at me like he's been doing. --
Gravedigger

Jaguarman -- Well met.  Just bring more next time. -- Nytemair

                             HAMMER ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

     Be it known from the highest mountains to the darkest alleys of Alastari that
the veteran manager known far and wide as Hammer has now officially retired from
sponsoring contests as of September 15, 2005.
     What a long time ago was a fun motivated activity to help promote our common
DM/D2 gaming interest in an effort to promote the growth and competitiveness of
selected arenas has become a far from fun experience.
     In other words Hammer has had it!
     The combination of real life situations interfering with the time needed to
effectively sponsor a contest, plus the attitudes expressed during such sponsorship
interference has led to Hammer closing his personal coin coffers and retiring from
his planned sponsorship of any future contests.
     There are others in our close knit gaming community who are well able to step up
to the plate and continue sponsoring contests that make the basic game a fun
experience for all those who choose to compete and interact in such future endeavors.
     Hammer thanks all managers both active and inactive who helped to make the
Hammer sponsored contests a historical and entertaining experience well worth the
time, effort and money spent over the past several years.
     May the Cheers and the Jeers of future contests build upon the legacies of those
who have paved the way in years gone by to help make this game what it is today.
     Hammer has no regrets for the part he has played in that history.

19 September 2005
I'd like to say hello to everyone I know that is still around after my being gone for
five years.  Hope to see you all on the sands, and may your weapons strike true and
your shields protect you (except, of course, against MY warriors *grin*)!! -- Lord
Xiang, D2-101

5 October 2005
To those once of Willaf -- It's time to come back to the sands.  I'm back,
exclusively at Willaf.... -- Kurd the Vivisectionist, Your Better
