                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That was something else, man o man.  You should get one of these for Ymir.  I'm
looking forward to my challenge this turn, who, as the highest up is...Tom Sawyer.
Glad to see you guys back.  Blackstorm was wondering if you'd come by and see us.
     Hey Tom!!!  Me gots a big big stick!

                                   Your Duelmaster,
                                        Nytemair

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  PHOENIX FIRE after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to 
consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  
What's a move up by 8 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to SMITHSONIAN.  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
MIDDLE WAY 11 can attest, moving up by 6.  DOGPOUND had cause to celebrate, after 
BLACK LAB got 21 points by beating AUJARD.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
BLACK LAB was winsome, after beating AUJARD and seeing him lose 15 points.  The arena 
was more crowded than usual this time, as ZIG ZAG faced ARKERS' Duelmaster.  In 
ARKERS, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
ZIG ZAG.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering 
milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in LA 
PENTARCHIE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, SMITHSONIAN scurried away from LA PENTARCHIE.  
Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and MAX VON SCUM is it right 
now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't NORTHERN BADLANDS proud!  ALAIN DRAGOON found 
himself challenged by a warrior 24 below:  HELEN OF TROY.  HELEN OF TROY of 
SMITHSONIAN kept hers wits as she bested ALAIN DRAGOON.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Citizens of ARKERS, be sure to settle your debts with RETRO ACTION of 
ENTENTER.  He's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  Never 
one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see LEVIATHAN retaliate 
against A.K.A. in bloodfeud!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will 
pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARKERS?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Greetings, all.  We are glad to be back in our home.  This was the very first slow
arena for The Consortium. -- Curator and The Smithsonians

Mongoose -- I think we did this before, way in the past.  I was lucky. -- Tom Sawyer

Fratsfa Mercenary -- You were no match for one of my skill. -- Helen Of Troy

Elixir -- My rusty skills did me well.  Perhaps we shall meet another day? -- Richard
The Lionheart

Kiseru -- You would embarrass me by making me the only Smithsonian loser?  Out, out
brief candle! -- Lady Macbeth

All -- We hope you did well for yourselves and Arkers in The Mailer.  Salute! -- The
Smithsonians

Yor Dethkall -- The better to blind you with my radiance. -- Dazzler

George Jim -- Unfortunately Basilisk took away your need for armor at all. -- Sunfire

Chiana -- Congratulations on your revenge. -- Dazzler

Jernig Mars -- That turned out better than I hoped for. -- Sunfire

Zit -- Well you can't out last them all. -- Dart

Welcome back, Curator!  We were quite crappy last turn, but we will try to improve
and we'll visit your Institute. -- The French Pentarque's guys

And welcome to the Z Man and his tough pieces of steel!  Are you also a Consortium
member? -- Le Pentarque

Hurrah for the French, Blackstorm, but the last turn was kinda humbling.  Don't be
too harsh on the poor old Gravedigger.  We could need him! -- Le Pentarque

I should be able to beat only TPs, and all the TPs are beating me.  I'm puzzled. --
Aujard

Jernig -- You deserved your chocolate bar. -- W. Baltimore

Sunfire -- That's the stuff to give the troops!  At least, with winter coming on. --
Jernig Mars
P.S.  Not that I want you to think of me as a troop.  I'm a host in myself, but not a
TROOP.  That sounds so...ordinary.
P.P.S.  I'm not a dwarf, either.

Thundar the Cruel -- Didn't your name used to be different?  Longer.  I guess the
change threw you off your stork.  Er, stroke.  Good thing, too.  I don't even want to
think about storks in the arena. -- Feordis Ink

S. G. -- There's just nothing to get hold of with you. -- Imber Lack

Basilisk -- I thought you were going to be a DOG, because of being from the
Alastarian Kennel Association.  And then you were a CAT instead, and a KILLER!  This
is just TOO MUCH. -- Ghost of Geroge Jim
P.S.  I won't be replaced this time around.  Orcs don't grow on trees around here,
you know, and Leeta promised to replace me with an orc if I died.

Chaos Invader -- Listen, I don't have any chaos.  I'm a very organized guy.  So you
can't invade it. -- Morg Potts

Biberon d'Acier -- So, you feed us the steel, hmm?  (wincing)  Good work, if you can
get it. -- Jernig Mars

Gravedigger -- I dunno.  Hang on while I check. -- Feordis Ink
P.S.  Sixteen, but I'm also very pig-headed.

Ymir Bloodraven -- You are one nasty Kannar.  I am so tired. -- Gravedigger

Sasha -- Now that was pure grit, girl!  I didn't think you would be still up after
the fifth. -- An amazed Nytemair

Hyena -- Wham!!!  There it is!!  That Desp strat I'm using is so wonderful. -- Saint
Seiya

Morg Potts -- Remind me to avoid you a few turns from now. -- Chaos Invader

Lin Minmei -- Was I overzealous or were you too busy checkin' out my biceps? -- Yor
Dethkall

Curator -- Welcome back to here!  The Smithsonian was missed.  Regards -- Blackstorm

Curator and Z Man -- Hey, c'mon you guys, I haven't been letting them get rusty, ya
know. -- Blackstorm

Smithsonian, A.K.A. and Z Gladiatorz -- Greetings to you all from the Champions of
Steel.  Please have a long stay, but you have to let me win once in a while. --
Blackstorm

Ententer -- My apologies are in order.  Due to some mistake I thought Emm was one of
yours, but she was from BONDAGE, so any hotheadedness on my behalf was unjustified.
Sorry about that. -- Blackstorm
P.S.  Gravedigger believes he can beat Kool Green!

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

12 October 2005
Magic Man -- You are a fellow Canadian, are you not?  Where do you hail from?  I live
in Kelowna, B.C. -- Maximillian, 8,13, 28, 47, 54
