Written for Sitting Bull as a DM Column, but missing in last newsletters.

     Writing for Sitting Bull, the new Duelmaster of Arkers, I can only hope to do 
justice to the column after that fine, fine column by Eton The Stalwort of Chosen.  
Sitting Bull expresses his pleasure to be heading to The Isle as a Lord Protector 
alongside the mighty Eton.  Sitting Bull is The Consortium's 1075th Lord Protector and 
he is a good one.  Starting at 14-18-5-8-20-9-10 (trem endu/norm dmg) this TP promptly 
TV'd Rookies in the Spring 2015 Mailer.  He "buffed" up to 17-20-5-9-21-9-11 
(awesome/good) and compiled a 20-6-0 arena record with a 15-12-0 tournament record.
     He has been interesting in that his skill learn rate is only 1.21, and he has 
only one crit (BS) in all his 75 swings with assortment weapons like BA/BS/WH/LG/ME.  
His faves are yet unknown.  
     For those history buffs amongst you, Tantanka-Iyotanka (1831-1890) was a Hunkpapa 
tribe military, religious, and political leader.  Called Sitting Bull, he was a 
stalwart defender of his people's lands and lifeways which were threatened by white 
settlers and miners on U.S. Govt. treaty-guaranteed grounds.  The violations provoked 
war in 1876 in which Sitting Bull, along with other leaders, masterminded the defeat 
of U.S. troops in The Battle of the Little Bighorn.  He and his followers later fled 
to Canada, faced by a massive 4000 troop military counteroffensive. Having returned to 
the U.S, late in his years he was killed in his own cabin in a bloody shootout.  He is 
buried in Fort Yates, N.D.
     Now he will be retired and revered as a Lord Protector at The Isle.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Excerpt from the journal of Halin Stormbreaker

     I sit here room.  I am still a little baffled as to how I won the title. Also, I 
do not feel deserving.  I know it is a time for celebration. But I cannot.  Too many 
of my brethren have sat here and they held records more deserving of the title.  I 
think of Yrah, Eton, Ria, and even the ill-behaved Port-A-Fortress.  They all had 
better records than I have.  At least I outshine the skills of Porta and Eton.  I 
could only hope to match Ria's skill.  The woman broke mauls over her medium shield on 
several occasions.  I may not be a peer to her skill wise, but now I have been 
inspired.  I will increase my training and hopefully work towards winning and thus 
regaining some of my honour. 
     I once told my younger brother, Ralin, to avoid the sands. But he ignored me as 
he always does. He has always wanted to do everything that I have done.  I learned 
metallurgy from Herum back in Khalhums.  He went to Garo and did the same.  I joined 
the temple, and a year later he was there as well.  I thought I had talked him out of 
being a gladiator.  We all know that it would never happen, even after I told him the 
price of failure was death on the sands of the Dark Arena.  His original 0-6-0 record 
had him worried and he was sure that he would die, but Longshot managed to turn him 
around.  The only time he didn't follow my lead was when he chose to use the family's 
weapon of choice.  Who knew my fascination with the weapon would be the only thing to 
stop that copycat in his tracks.  But seeing me holding the title has made him more 
determined to gain it as well.  Most likely he will have a better record too.
     I know one thing:  If Mayflower is around when he reaches the challenger 
champions, he will be in for a surprise.  Mayflower is truly a hearty warrior and he 
has the ability to be a lord protector one day.  I have no doubt about that. 
     I honestly do not know who I will challenge, nor do I care. Challenges for me and 
the brethren always seem to go astray. So, I will worry about that when he time comes. 
Forgive me. My thoughts are all over this evening. Perhaps it is because of too many 
pints. Perhaps they will be clearer in the morning. 
     Until next entry.

                                        Praise to Mantor the Bright

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARKERS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, THE CHOSEN, since BLOODY 
HAND CLAN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Z GLADIATORZ 
turned their 2-1-0 turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, BLOODY HAND CLAN, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud. 
Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MAUD STONEGUT win a fight and gain 19 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ONL CERL beat GOLD RUSH and GOLD RUSH lost 8 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  HALIN STORMBREAKER challenged ZIRCONIUM for ARKERS' Title 
this turn, and guess what happened?  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
ZIRCONIUM takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh. 
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  ARKERS, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  HOYT FOUNDATION the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like THE CHOSEN avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  LORD 
SHADOW was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have SHAWNDO in a challenge, going down 8 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought SHAWNDO showed great skill and promise 
when he beat LADY SMOKE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARKERS' 
morgue.  More variety.  It's about time SANDMAN got beat for picking on warriors like 
THE DEALER.  Bravo, HOYT FOUNDATION.  See you at The Warty Toad.  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of ARKERS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

4)  Also every random matchup against a contest team that you win will earn you 5 
    points -- up or down.

Arvat warriors on the team that participated in the contest and must be in bounds.
