                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Finally!  My fourth Duelmaster Title brings me the Lord Protector honor I have
long been seeking.  This is a proud day.  I am off to see the wizard in The Emerald
City.  (Whoops; wrong plot.)  I mean that I am off to see Lady Greywand at The Isle.
Life is sweet.
     So, then, here's all you need to know about me (last fight excepting):
11-15-10-17-17-3-11 Waste
+ Parry, slight damage-doing hose
normal damage and good endurance
Bumped to 13-17-10-17-17-3-11
Good damage, great endurance
17-3-0 arenas (4 DM Titles); 2-6 in tournaments
Skill learn rate 2.43
Master in attack, Experts in Init and Parry
SC at 8-66-7
QS at 3-48-2
ME at 2-13-0
all others at 1-64-0
Fave guess: SC, Mod/Low, learns attack
     One more fight and the crown is all yours, whoever you are.  Good luck.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out WILLAF to see 
what's new.  Too bad, GOLDEN GLADIATORS, but MAXIMUM RESULTS was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for RIPLEY BYRD?  PUNNY AMINALS' proud of him after beating 
FLETCHER and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FLETCHER got 
smashed by RIPLEY BYRD, and lost 14 points!  Like PUNNY AMINALS' SARDO GRACKEL is 
sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster GOLDEN DELICIOUS!  This Duelmaster is 
like something else!  GOLDEN DELICIOUS stopped SARDO GRACKEL dead in his tracks!  Is 
the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  MAXIMUM RESULTS was the most avoided team.  Is a 311-370-22 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from MAXIMUM RESULTS, that's fer sher.  Can PUNNY 
AMINALS' SARDO GRACKEL be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All WILLAF ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  So PUNNY AMINALS has one more turn to Bloodfeud GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS' GOLD LOCKET.  Big deal.  SALLY C. SHELLEY's dead.  What's the point?  Ya 
just gotta go on.  Don't look back...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families 
would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --

Congrats to Mazimum Results with a big 47 points for Top Team On The Move.  Even with
my Golden Gladiator 5-0-1, I couldn't match that.  Kudos. -- Midas, Golden Gladiators

Sardo Grackel -- While I remain a Golden Delicious Fan, the wife prefers Rome.  I
wonder if she is straying? -- Golden Delicious

Billy Jack -- Sometimes I think you are right in using that pan for pies.  Most days
it surely is useless for gold. -- Pan For Gold

Osksi Noble -- Sorry about that.  Didn't mean to get so carried away.  That pan was
heavier than I thought!  Good thing the healers can ressurect you NPC types. -- Pan
For Gold

Horus Mann -- Golden lockets can be strangling if they are on a chain around one's
neck. -- Gold Locket (using a large imagination)

Dangerous Criminal -- I do not allow crime to mess around with my bridge.  Be gone!
-- Golden Gate Bridge

Way to go, Golden Gladiators!  Five-0-1!  I am proud of you. -- Midas

Later info from Midas:
Golden Delicious faves are: GS, Low/Low, learns Defense -- The Golden Gladiator
Publicity Dept.

Golden Delicious -- But I didn't *want* apple pie today!  I had my mouth set for
peach cobbler. -- Sardo Grackel

Morgar -- You darned near maximized that result.  Ouch.  Good fight. -- Billy Jack

Gold Locket -- More of a gold *digger* today, weren't you? -- Horus Mann

Longing Leggings -- Yeah, I wish.  Or maybe some wistful warmers. -- John Dere

Our congratulations to Golden Delicious. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals
