                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I love this throne.  A little luck; some fine management; a little skill; etc.
Life is sweet.  Life is really, really sweet!
     I'd like to tell you all about me, since I am now a Lord Protector.  I don't
know my faves, since my formal paperwork is being sent (purposefully) where I am not.
However, I was born a 15-16-10-6-19-8-10 total Parry.  I guess I am pretty mode, and
I may (hope, hope) like the battle axe.  My only expertise is an adex in parry.
(What else does one need?)
     My 18-7-1 arena record is much worse in tournament play at 12-15.  That's
unusual for Kennelworth, but then, I have been pretty hard to manage.  My 6-6 record
against TP's sort of validates my mediocrity and my dog-tired condition.  I love
lungers, going 10-2 in the career, and hate those aimers who have me at an 0-2
disadvantage.  (I know how to use my avoids!)  I do OK when challenged, at 4-2, and
about the same--7-3--when I challenge.
     Like all Bulldogs, I am true to the Andorian beliefs.  Health!  Humility!
Honor!  Sportsmanship is king.
     I'd like to wish you all well in your endeavors.  And good luck to the next
Duelmaster.

          Dog-Tired, Duelmaster (and retired after the last arena fight)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARUAK CITY?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If The Victory Tavern is buying drinks 
for THE UNHOLY's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 4-0-0 
makes for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can sneak into The Victory Tavern and join 
SCARLET KNIGHTS II's celebration over their good record this turn.  15th place, not 
bad.  If this keeps up, THE LIVING DEAD, you'll have to shine swords instead of use 
them.  A drop of 9 in the rankings?  Now let's all watch THE HEADCUTTERS II's heads 
swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see CHERRY CHEETAH win a fight and gain 27 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SALENA WARSMITH beat SEGALLION SUNDANCER and SEGALLION 
SUNDANCER lost 21 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  LONNIE JOHNSON challenged ARUAK 
CITY's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
ARUAK CITY may be getting bland, as DOG-TIRED stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in 
a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, ARUAK CITY?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ARUAK CITY, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  MANIC MARVELS the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like BULLDOGS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  DAMNUALL was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this 
one, but T-BONE WALKER has challenged up by 29 in an attempt against NIXIE SEASPRITE. 
Not that I'm surprised or anything, but T-BONE WALKER lost to NIXIE SEASPRITE, 
leaving the latter lower for recognition points.  And we have ICE in a challenge, 
going down 15 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought ICE showed great skill 
and promise when he subdued VIRGINIA'S SECRET.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     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.  Gee, KELLUMBO'S KIDS, ain't it past due 
for sending TAKEEYLA Dark Arena?  What took ol' '6-6-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha 
ha!  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 ARUAK CITY.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

but then again, she's always done well dealing with more than she should be able to

                                 TEN TURNS OF HELL:
                        The KLK Capture The Flag Competition

In the spirit of the ongoing effort to make arena play what it used to be (FUN!!), I
am proud to announce the KLK Capture The Flag Competition.  The competition will be
held in Jhans (DM-36, which has, by the way, grown in size equal to Talcama already).
:)  We are announcing this contest early to allow managers time to prep.

Rules:
     -- On turn 462 (due 8/4/04) the lowest ranked warrior on your team is given your
team's 'flag' (he is your initial flag defender).
     -- Starting on turn 463 (due 8/18/04) flags will be defended every turn and turn
463 is the turn scoring will begin.
     -- Fights involving flags are winners-take-all and a warrior can carry as many
flags as he can win.
     -- If a warrior holding a flag either A) goes inactive, B) loses to a stand-by
warrior or C) gets DA'd, he forfeits all flags he has and they are returned the their
original team's lowest ranked warrior.
     -- If you hold your own flag on an inactive warrior you receive NO POINTS that
turn.
     -- If a warrior graduates to AD holding flags starting on the next turn those
flags will be defended by the lowest ranked warrior on the team of the graduating
warrior.
     -- Scoring as follows for each turn:
          2 pts -- possession of your own team flag
          1 pt -- possession any other flag
          1 pt -- for each win
          1 pt -- for each kill
          1 pt -- for each award you receive in the newsletter
     -- You may enter as many teams as you like (per RSI rules) but each team is its
own entry.
     -- Tie-Breaker goes to the team that had the most points from flags.
     -- If still tied the tie-breaker will be the team that had the most points from
kills.  (It's the Delarq way.)
     -- The contest lasts 10 turns and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd
(based on highest point totals)

Prizes: (what you've been waiting on)
1st -- 3 know favorites potions*
       DA warrior named after winning manager
2nd -- 2 know favorites potions*
3rd -- 1 know favorites potion*

* These are full favorite potions (weapon, rhythms and tactics) and can only be used
on warriors with at least 4 FE.

     How's that for paying out? (grin)  Even if you think that it's all about the TC,
these prizes should be enough to draw you in.  (You know who you are.)
     I hope to see friend and foe alike come to Jhans.  Legion, Froths, and all the
others...this is your personal invite.  Can you win?  Can you survive 10 turns of
Hell in Jhans?
     Note:  Special thanks to RSI for helping make this contest possible.  Thanks
guys!
