                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings, warriors of Kolact!!  I'm sorry to ruin Felicitas' plan of killing my
comrade and leaving for the Isle with that sixth kill.  I assume it's more a
bloodthirsty warrior than anything else.  I know Shocking Toad wouldn't really want
to kill all my warriors so close to graduation.  Anyway, Munchies graduates along
with Felicitas, Hotta Watta (curse you!), and Quonset.  Congrats to all!
     Munchies leaves looking like this:  17-13-6-17-17(+2)-5-11 adv exp par, att and
exp init and def.  He got a LO favorite with low/high.  A fun warrior to run but very
underskilled.  I'm sure the other graduates are much  more impressive.  Anyway, good
luck to all this turn.  I challenged Sir Prise this turn to give my ol buddy Sultan a
shot at the throne.  By the way, Sultan, the only reason this DM column is being
written is to avoid any hazing by you in the personals!!  You must have a master
rating in guilt!

                                 Munchies and Floyd

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THE MENTORS?  Who?  TERRAPIN STATION is the top team these days, 
buddies!  WAY OF THE SWORD C3 after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning 
the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as MEGAWARRIORS can 
attest...  Good things come to those who fight well, as QUBIT can attest, moving up 
by 4.  Well, FLOYD ANONYMOUS, you can show this to your parents.  But you'll have to 
do better than 2-3-0 if you want your names in this space again...  Practice pays for 
SHYLAYLA MINOR, who pummelled BLING BLING, to pocket 24 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 23 points to SHYLAYLA 
MINOR.  (Discrete enough, BLING BLING?) What can be a greater victory?  KEPLER has 
taken his place as the top, as KOLACT's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in 
KOLACT is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of THE MENTORS' TOY BOX 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of SIR AGLIO, so did that sorry team shy from THE 
MENTORS' TOY BOX Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, CASIMIR is the most challenged warrior.  Them's the breaks, 
VENUS.  Expecting fair challenges from SIR AGLIO is evidently too much to ask.  SIR 
PRISE subdued VENUS with a point difference of 32.  So this is what KOLACT calls a 
duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  STRAP ON found herself challenged by a 
warrior 20 below:  NEVENGAR.  NEVENGAR of MEGAWARRIORS kept his wits as he was 
overcame by STRAP ON.  Mismatched by 10 points, SCREWDRIVER was overcame by QUIETUS.  
Is this really worth noting?  I thought QUIETUS showed great skill and promise when 
he defeated SCREWDRIVER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Citizens of 
KOLACT, be sure to settle your debts with FELICITAS of PRAETORIAN GUARD.  She's 
relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on hers mind!  Hey PRAETORIAN 
GUARD!  Is there some deep dark, unmentionable secret as to why FELICITAS has been 
sent to the Dark Arena?   18-9-5 isn't so shabby!  Charity is unknown in KOLACT, and 
rightly so.  QUBIT exacted their revenge against MEGAWARRIORS.  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
KOLACT would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in KOLACT is the highlight of my life.  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 KOLACT?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Sultan -- Hey, and thanks for the word.  Good news and great news.  Gracie survived
the tourney.  Not with class or distinction or honors or trappings of civilization...
but, having my house manageress returning hale and hearty is good enough.  It's the
start of the rebuilding process.  She'll take care of the day-to-days and I'll handle
the long-termers.  Don't be too long away from the ads. -- Still

Lunelle -- Pretty close considering I've a ton more fights than you. -- Vapid Vanna

Tyco -- Well, well and well-come me back.  Me'n Vanna, huh?  (someone's been cleanin
house)  Okayz you bet.  'Parently, it's newbies on the hoof time.  Stupid newbies. --
Gracie

Bling Bling -- (groggily)  My head is ringing, or is that the phone?  Phone?  What
phone?  They haven't been invented yet, right?  So it must be...how about a doorbell?
-- Kepler
P.S.  Do not, I repeat NOT tell me it's the sound of the planets in their epicycles.

Strap On -- What? -- Cleo

Gracie -- I couldn't hit a lady.  Good night, Gracie. -- Tycho

Vapid Vanna -- Wow, you had TWO two-syllable words there.  I didn't know you could do
it. -- Lunelle

Sharp -- This makes us an oh-fer turn, right?  Figures.  It's that kind of day. --
Bailey O'Bead

All -- Time is short again for me, so here goes.  Congrats to Munchies, Felicitas
(only 5 kills?), and Hotta Watta for getting the call to ADM.  VERY sorry to War
Hawks re: the execution of Missae, oh so close to immortality.  And finally, Dr.
Feelgood, your recent attention to my stables has been duly noted. -- Sultan, Sir
Aglio and Qubit

Greta -- Spank you very much. -- Quonset

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex
