                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sorry about the mismatch, Pappy Whappy, but I eat chainmail for lunch!  Whereas
many of my kind like to strangle their "meal", I prefer to come right out and strike
like an ass...er...asp.  This turn, I thought I'd throw out a challenge for a change.
How's about I slink on over to Gracie's and flick my tongue over her body in
anticipation of the coup de "gracie"?  I like that idea!  So said, so done.

                                             Sir Pent

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KOLACT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now, what did these guys have for 
breakfast this morning?  MEGAWARRIORS has turned a 5-0-0 into 3rd place from 14th.  
Give me the recipe!  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for PRAETORIAN GUARD, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 10th.  The 
QUBIT guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never 
know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ANN OREXIA fought RAYNESTORM 
and gained 21 points and contributed to EVERYDAY PEOPLE's 2-0-0.  LADY DIVAN has lost 
to SILENT KNIGHT, falling 14 points, while helping make SPRINGBORN a 0-5-0 turn.  
This turn SIR PENT challenged GRACIE in what was KOLACT's Title bout.  Defending his 
title for another turn, SIR PENT kept SPRINGBORN's warrior, GRACIE, from claiming the 
throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at Don Corleone's?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  DEVIL'S ADVOCATE has cause to 
stand tall, as they were KOLACT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding DEVIL'S ADVOCATE more than any other team we find SIR 
AGLIO.  KOLACT, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports 
fans, take notice that TYCHO from THE MOONDOGS was KOLACT's most challenged warrior 
this turn.  RUN ABOUT RON from SPRINGBORN took a risk this turn by bravely 
challenging up 27 points in a challenge against REVENANT.  But when the dust settled, 
RUN ABOUT RON had lost to REVENANT, and SPRINGBORN left RUN ABOUT RON doing chores 
when they went to the tavern.  Better luck next time.  Well now, what do you expect 
when someone like QUAINT, TOO from QUBIT challenges down 17 points to fight MAL ADY 
of BLOODSHED?  I thought challenges were for warriors, not cowards looking for easy 
wins.  QUAINT, TOO overcame MAL ADY, is nothing sacred?  CUP O'PIZZA of THE JERKS had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 12 points in a TV challenge which it 
won.  I thought CUP O'PIZZA showed great skill and promise when it beat TYCHO.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  CLAN BATTLEAXE made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as they 
sent DROC, with a record of 21-7-1, to DROC death.  Farewell, his.  This is not good 
to see.  Why pray tell has DROC been sent to the Dark Arena by CLAN BATTLEAXE?  And 
why with a 21-7-1 record??  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  ASHLII 
was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  CLAN 
BATTLEAXE has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, RETURN, 
who had a record of 4-1-0?' Don Corleone's declares a free round for STORMBLADE and 
all of THUNDERSTRIKERS, for having revenged CLAN BATTLEAXE's WOLFRAVEN for killing 
one of their comrades.  Kudos go out to ENGINEER FRED this turn, for revenging THE 
JERKS' bloodfeud against BLOODSHED's warrior DOGMA.  Well done.  A brave warrior does 
not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in KOLACT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Wolfraven -- I don't know how it was possible to get the jump on a Lunger with a
Masters rating in Initiative, and 16FE!  I am totally blown away on the matter.  I

guess he got what he had coming to him...seeing he killed twice and no one revenged
it.  What comes around goes around...in your case...every dog has its day.  See ya on
the sands! -- Zeus

All -- I'm disgusted with this last turn!!  AARRGGHHHH!!!!  0-5!  What gives?  I'll
tell ya!  Four out of five went up against lungers and lost....  My lunger goes out
and gets himself killed!!  What kind of conspiracy is going on here in Kolact!??  We
have entirely too many lungers in this city, I'm fed up with it, and starting to
think, if ya can't beat em, join em!  I'm in desperate need of advice here, before I
go postal! -- Zeus the aggravated

Mal Ady -- I'll say one thing for the broomstick set...we don't have to come looking
for you.  Mighty Ron, Bloodfeuder!  (Yes, I backed into the avenging, but I'll take
it, none the less.) -- Run-About

Ojo Tango -- Thanks for the skill, not easily come by, those are. -- Gracie

Shard -- Well, that was an interesting safari into the hinterlands.  Finger
sandwiches and tea things.  It's how ladies conduct business. -- Lady Divan

Hookfang -- As the advert says "join up, see the world, at least a different part of
it."  I couldn't handle the ship's tossing, champ.  I mean, I really thinks I would a
died if we hadn't made landfall on the island.  I was that far gone.  Now it's
gainful employment and a chance to learn a trade.  And...stand on solid ground which
most folks fail to appreciate as the day to day marvel it is. -- Ivan Mashminaplp

Zeus -- Mz. SWL = 4-0 wif ze horriblist of wee-pons.
P.S.  Yes she iz zee wo-man. (kinda missed that the first time.  I mean, you really
gotta look)

Cup O'Pizza -- Gaaaah!  I've been skill-raped, you Jerk!  Have you no respect for my
creaking old bones?  My years--two, at least--of dogged effort teaching young
gladiators their trade?  No, of course not.  You youngsters are all the same.  Cocky,
sure that it could never happen to YOU.  Bah. -- Tycho

Kosika -- I didn't know guards were female, too.  Or did you lie about your gender,
because a good job is hard to come by?  Not that I mind.  One does as one must. --
Trojan Roc
P.S.  But I can't help wondering.

Lativius -- Don't tell me YOU are my secret admirer, that would spoil my whole day,
and it wasn't a really good day to begin with.  I want a secret admirer who is
svelte, beautiful--blonde for choice, besotted with me, and FEMALE.  That's not too
much to ask, is it? -- Mickey Mite

Sir Occo -- Ah, the wind, the deadly, desiccating wind!  You can't imagine how glad I
was to be properly prepared for it.  And how does one properly prepare for such a
wind, you might ask?  By being somewhere else, that's how.  Works every time. --
Bailey O'Bead

Silent Knight -- (coaxingly)  But you CAN speak, can't you?  I would love to hear
your manly voice.  Or whatever kind of voice you happen to have, of course, but if
it's not manly, I'll be disappointed. -- Lunelle

Dantavius -- What a MASSIVE blow! -- Sir Prise'd?

Bailey O'Bead -- Oh, boy, a decise skill.  Yawn. -- Sir Occo
P.S.  I see you fared better.

Droc -- Okay, I'm impressed.  Gonna try one more time, if you don't mind. -- Quietus,
not easily discouraged

Octavian -- Try to reach me THIS turn, you...you...LOCAL! -- Qaeda, Al bet the
outcome was no "sir" prise to you!

Bloody Mary -- Now THAT bloodfeud was a risk! -- Quaint, Too

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
