                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

First, I'd like to thank Tillouisa for the title fight and the crown.  It was a good
fight and you are a true warrior.  My first challenge as Duelmaster goes out to
Barry.  Not that I think a TP should get a chance at the throne, but a good chance of
losing badly to me.  I am glad to do my part in my stable's upswing of wins and good
fortune.

                                         -- Your Duelmaster,
                                            Knothead

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  BLOODSUCKERS?  Who?  THE CITY is the top team 
these days, buddies!  HELL-MART after a sorry 1-2-0 might want to consider abandoning 
the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  What's a move up by 
5 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to 
POWERPUFF GIRLS.  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but HIGH 
JINKS will tell you 16-13-1 is nothing to laugh at...  DREAMERS had cause to 
celebrate, after DROMMARE got 22 points by beating TILLOUISA.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 14 points to FAST 
TRACK.  (Discrete enough, SKULKING THIEF?) In RIZTAB, nothing is permanent (except 
Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, XXL STRETCH PANTS.  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are RIZTAB's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in THE LAWMEN are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to 
avoid 'em.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, TEAM GNASTY scurried away from 
THE LAWMEN.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  
Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BLOOD BUD is the most challenged warrior.  BAT 
MANUAL found himself challenged by a warrior 22 below:  JUDGE PARKER.  JUDGE PARKER 
of THE LAWMEN kept his wits as he overcame BAT MANUAL.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Congratulations, 
CHAINSAW VIGILANTE.  The manager of THE LAWMEN should have sent DREBIN 2.0 to the 
Dark Arena for having a 5-4-0 long ago.  PIZZARRHEA of HELL-MART, possessing a sorry 
record of 7-5-0, lost its last battle to SONADOR of DREAMERS.  Young warriors, take 
note!  Such is a failure's lot!  Fair play must not be a credo of DREAMERS, as 
SONADOR permanently removed PIZZARRHEA of HELL-MART from the competition in a 
mismatched fight.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long 
after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

All -- Three with one blow!  Chop! Chop! Chop!  I don't usually like to get that
heavy handed all-at-once.  But I really couldn't figure out which one I could stand
to look at for another cycle.  Actually, I did figure it out.  They were all equally
vile and abhorrent together. -- Jondeaux

Surfer Sam -- Estate sitting, eh?  Been n' done, far's I know the structure still
stands, such as it now is...s'called character. -- Jondeaux

Merinda -- It appears that a) you lost the battle of the losers, and b) I can't hit
my attack location. -- Pot Belly, awaiting repercussions
P.S.  You looked awfully good in leather!

Jorja -- I blame Surfer Sam.  Yeah, that's it. -- Sultan

Jondeaux -- The Pixie never really got along with the Ogre.  I couldn't talk her into
revenging.  So I was delighted when she did it accidentally.  I still miss the big
lug. -- Dungeonmaster

Grayola 64-Pack -- Look on me as a color attack! -- Nanette the brightly victorious

Pizzarrhea -- Yuck. -- Noreen
P.S.  Not that I'm surprised.

Bass Reeves -- What I really need is someone who can sing tenor. -- Song of Summer

Knothead -- (sigh)  Good fight. -- Tillouisa
P.S.  (note to self: do not hit this warrior on his head....)

Pot Belly -- The possibilities suggested by your name are so disgusting that
Merinda's ghost declines to comment. -- Jorja

Wax Hostile -- Huh, that's managers for you, isn't it?  *I* don't get like that, but
then, "manager" is only my day job. -- Surfer Sam, assistant manager Sweet Magic

28 January 2004
All -- I send out this invitation to all teams and managers.  A new Alliance has been
formed.  The Living Essences Alliance is being formed to join forces in an effort to
eliminate common foes and to help the joined warriors grow and learn to the best of
their abilities by offering suggestions and advice.  It doesn't matter what arena
you're in, or if you're in another alliance already, as of today.  This Alliance is
open to one and all!  If you are interested in joining, please DIPLO me, or send a
personal ad to DM 93's newsletter.  If you wish to join beyond March 2004, send a PA
to DM 82.  Come join the fun! -- Dagan LifeGiver, mgr. Shadow Warriors (DM 93)

28 January 2004
This notice is to formally introduce our young alliance, CHAOS INC.  We consist of
APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and now RUDE BUDDHA.  If we aren't already there, we
WILL be coming to an arena near you soon!  Hope to see you all at the ZALCON II.

4 February 2004
Greeting from Jhans, DM 36 -- In 2 turns the kLk will host our first annual "St.
Valentines Day Massacre" in Jhans, arena 36.  (Kill Contest)  The contest will begin
on turn 450.  It will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461 the winners will be announced.
There will be 3 separate categories, the team with the most kills, the alliance with
the most kills, and the warrior with the most kills.  For the manager of the team
with the most kills a PRIZE of 10 ROLL-UPS will be rewarded (or $50 deposited into
his account).  No need to declare yourself in the personals.  If you are in DM 36,
you will be part of the contest whether you like it or not.  We encourage as much
trash talk as you'd like.  All teams, managers, and alliances invited.  Please
contact Polarius (mgr. of Blitzkrieg) in DM 36 with questions.  Or you can email me
at jamieptmo@hotmail.com.  Good luck and see you in the sands. -- Polarius

25 February 2004
Readers, and especially those who volunteered warriors -- My apologies for the sudden
lack of episodes.  I've been sick, but expect to be back at the keyboard soon. -- the
