                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Finally, after languishing for close to TWO YEARS!!!! my manager decided to
clear out a few of us that were collecting dust in the stable.  Sorry Pazuzu...
you'll have to stay a bit longer.  Why don't you actually try to beat one of those
color punks.  When I finally beat my two year hangover, I managed to tag a couple
losses on them.  Ah well, it's not like they are of any consequence anyway.  I'll
take my longsword and my HI/HI rhythm packing to Free Blades, retire.  Wish I could
have planted a few more of you puds before I left. -- Malasion

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  
BROWN'S BLADES now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  For every 
winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at GEN KHAN, who went 
down to 9th from 15th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 3-0-0 outing, THUNDER 
CLAP has advanced 7 places in the rankings.  It looks like the guys(?) at SILK AND 
STEEL had a good week as they went 4-1-2 to put them in 5th place.  I guess steroids 
help!  Hey everybody, watch out for ALENNA TRYSHAND, who flew up 23 points in the 
rankings after mashing CRIMSON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was CRIMSON, who dropped 19 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with ALENNA TRYSHAND.  ARTEMIS ENTERI got through to the 
Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick MALASION's tail out 
of the throne!  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was 
WAY OF THE SWORD's ARTEMIS ENTERI, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
MALASION.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that COLOR ME was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of COLOR ME's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be 
funny, but catch THE BLACKHEARTS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly 
deft at running from COLOR ME.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, PAZUZU 
would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  Was it 
guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had RESH challenge up 26 points in the 
rankings to take on HIMEI?  Trading many whacks on the head and a loss for 3 
recognition points, RESH shows that a guy doesn't have to be good to get places.  In 
a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, TARRANT went after PAZUZU, who was higher 
by 25 points.  Well, when the dust settled, TARRANT was bested by PAZUZU.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  This round goes to THE 
BLACKHEARTS, their 18-13-2 warrior, MALASION slew the 9-6-0 ARTEMIS ENTERI.  Stay 
tuned next week to see what happens.  For those of you who missed it, Death showed 
up, grabbed RESH by the ear and took him away to a place where he won't need a coat.  
Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as DARIUS goes down under the sword of 
CAEDDAR.  Thanks to this, CAEDDAR now has 27 recognition points.  Big man!  HIMEI 
kills RESH.  Who ya gonna fight next, HIMEI--Minnie Mouse?  I hope WAY OF THE SWORD 
has a good enough fighter to beat the snot out of HIMEI.  Ask not the elves for 
counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the WILLAF giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Pyoa -- You need some more consonants to slow you down! -- Pun Dat

Caliaphus -- Stubborn fellow, aren't you?  But the women all love me. -- Chocconut

Alenna Tryshand -- Really, that wasn't called for!  You could just have given me a
steely-eyed look and said "This fight is mine, yield to me now and I won't beat you
up," and I WOULD have.  I'm not suicidal, you know. -- O. Pun Pleezj

To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.

26 July 2003
     Citizens of Alastari, a bright dawn has risen.  While you slept, a pernicious
force has entered the once-fair City of Aruak.  It fought alongside their treasured
warriors, it drank with their fans, and it slept with their women.  Now the masks are
coming off.
     Warriors, be afraid...be very afraid.  After years of Andorian managers ranting
that Aruak is the safest city in Alastari, the Frothingslosh Syndicate has selected
Aruak City as the home for its next epic 'contest'--Murder by Numbers II.  Our spies
have selected the warriors for extermination, and the executioners have had several
months to prepare.  Now a new age of darkness will descend upon Aruak, as the
Syndicate and its allies bring an entirely new level of competition to the arena!
Downchallenges!  Assassinations!  Small poodles as hors d'oeuvres!
     The Murder by Numbers II 'rules' will be announced next cycle.  However, we
invite all managers, from all corners of Alastari, to come to Aruak City and take
part...in one way or another.  Help defend the honor of a long heralded haven for the
pure, or join the forces of change in their siege of the ice-cream and cake
stronghold of the Dukes of Nerf-Dueling!
     This exercise is not for either the faint of heart or the weak willed.  Blood
will flow, brains will leak, and beer will be chugged.  Either way, we welcome you
with open arms and gleaming blades.
     This public service announcement has been brought to you by Frothingslosh Epic
Contests (tm), the number 86, and the letter 'K'.
