                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Back again for my last turn on Aljafir's throne, and for my last fight.  I am
Judge's second piker to graduate.  Judge was pretty happy with my record considering
my mediocre stats.  I have no idea what to do with a Quarterstaff as my favorite
weapon.  I guess I will give it a try.  It's been fun, Aljafir.  Hopefully, McArthur
will follow in my footsteps and report to you next turn.

                                             Your Duelmaster,
                                             Lord Protector Napoleon

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ALJAFIR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, MARIN NEH fought 
AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 14 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY's 1-4-0.  MCARTHUR 
has lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, falling 11 points, while helping make HEROESANDFOUNDONES 
a 4-1-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and NAPOLEON 
remains ALJAFIR's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  
I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Vile Vizier until 
they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     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 ALJAFIR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Achiles -- There you GO again, with the steel heel-guards and all.  Is that allowed?
Can I get a special armor-piercing boot to kick you there?  There has GOT to be
something I can do.  That doesn't require practicing, I mean.  I just don't have any
sort of rapport with the practice dummies.  They're unfeeling, cold-hearted, and no
good at conversation. -- Daron El

Pip the Troll -- Gods, I hate that!  I was doing so WELL, I had you on the ropes
(figuratively speaking, no ropes in the arena), and then...I fell over.  And not even
any skills for me.  Insult to injury. -- Tabeta Unis
P.S.  Okay, insult to exhaustion, since no injuries were involved on my part.

The Osksi Noble is Harkene?  Since when?  Why?  Is this a sign of Osksian
encroachment in northern Alastari?  Inquiring minds want to know! -- Marin Neh

So Marin goes and gets the damned Osksian all stirred up just before *I* have to face
him, and then she--Marin--LAUGHS when the Osksian beats me down!  Is this any kind of
decent behavior in a teammate? -- Vurzhal Ur

Vurzhal -- You're Shewish.  Who cares if you get beaten up? -- Marin Neh

*I* care, dammit! -- Vurzhal
P.S.  Besides, I'm only half Shewish.
P.P.S.  The tall half.
P.P.P.S.  Oh, wait...I won.  I missed that, because the Osksi Noble was mentioned
last.

I have NO sympathy for a Dwarf, a short, hairy troublemaker, who comes along and
tries to get money out of me by doing the puppy-dog-eye thing. -- Opata Perlis
P.S.  It looks really STRANGE when a Dwarf with a nose like a drunken parrot and a
full beard does the puppy-dog-eye thing.  It's, frankly, a little disgusting.

Napoleon -- Congratulations on your graduation. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Opata Perlis -- You are ungenerous, not to say hard-hearted.  I did my best for you,
and what thanks do I get?  You damned near cut off my hand! -- Kellechi, a member in
good standing of the Beggars' Guild

Vurzhal Ur -- I should think you would be more sympathetic to a fellow minority
member.  Your behavior was unnecessarily stringent, sir! -- Kadel Merona, Osksi Noble

Marin Neh -- Here I am, stuck with a morning star and forced to fight more than once
in a day, and you call me ungenerous?  Pah! -- Kadel Merona, Osksi Noble
P.S.  Where is Osksi?  I will be glad to leave Aljafir and go there, if you'll pay my
passage.

Purple Heart -- What a temper!  You should be ashamed of yourself, sir! -- Shagrath,
Assassin by trade, convicted by accident

McArthur -- I am the victim of type-casting.  Yes, okay, I'm a Dwarf.  Nothing wrong
with that!  But from Khalhums?  No way.  Who'd want to be from that pesthole?  Any
Dwarf that DID happen to be from Khalhums and had any self-respect would move. --
Dugald Hammerhand

Napoleon -- Fie, sir, I am not actually venomous!  True, I favor a STRONG perfume,
but I consider it a business asset, and it is not poisonous.  Unless you happen to be
one of the people--most males, in fact--who is allergic to it.  But I can't choose my
scent based on somebody's possible allergies! -- Lenislichi of Venjek, Concubine, or
to be more exact, Courtesan
P.S.  Congratulations on your graduation.
P.P.S.  If we standbys don't write personals, things get too thin, and the all-arena
ads dominate the page.  That is unacceptable.

11 November 2004
All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct
and up to date.  Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your
updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com.  As you may guess, replace the
at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the
web).

I have information on the following alliances:  ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada,
Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of
Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson
Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ,
Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk,
Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and
Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of
Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection,
Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel.

If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know.  If you are a member of
some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know.  If you were at any point in your
past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know.
Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to
still be in the same alliance when they return.  Even having everyone in an alliance
go inactive doesn't change anything.  If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's
another thing you have to let me know....

The Saint, keeper of lists

P.S.  If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore
this.

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,
depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer
500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.
     On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a
Graduate will win 2 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of
Hammer!
     Additional Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Gift Cert Prizes:
     Five (5) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager whose warrior claims the
Duelmaster Throne on T-500.
     Two (2) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
as the highest Active Challenger Champion, Champion, Challenger Adept, Adept,
Challenger Initiate and Initiate on T-500.
     In the event that NO Duelmaster is seated upon the Duelmaster Throne on T-500
there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are
tied for recognition points at the Top of the Challenger Champions recognition
standings.  [Therefore, the Top CC will be awarded 3 Gift Certs instead of 2 for
being ranked as the highest CC on T-500].
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) graduate on
T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) receive
their graduation announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
in the Top Warrior Of Each Style newsletter announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the

     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the

     SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED
STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.
