                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     To be a Duelmaster in Talcama, a goal finally achieved, this would have not been
possible but for the insight and patience of the mega-managers to help me to think
outside of the box.  Thank you Doc Steele, Center for Olds, I'm sure I forgot a
couple (that's what I get for misplacing diplos).
     Good battle, Jandolin!  Now a champion who deserves to be the best of the best!
A champion who has won 8 out of 10 of her last battles.  I hope to keep my darkness
fans moody.  A small smile on their faces.  My challenge goes out to a warrior with a
name that sounds like it really hurts.  Good luck, Roid Rage.

                    Lilith

                                      SPY REPORT

It seems that recently, the Duelmaster wants nothing more than to fight ROID RAGE.
This time, the Duelmaster got his challenge and LILITH did what JANDOLIN wanted to.
ROID RAGE was slain in a 1 minute uneven fight. With LILITH's second turn on the
throne, the commission recognized LILITH as a Lord Protector.

Also, the commission remembered that QUEUE had created a bit of a log-jam in Talcama
and recognized three other veterans.  SON OF CAIN, VAIN VARICOSE, and DIRE WOLF will
travel with LILITH to the Isle of the Eye after next turn's fights.

Hottest Warriors on the sands:
    HE HATE ME (8-2) - Loss to VAIN VARICOSE
    PAUL (8-2) - Loss to WONDER BRA
    SON OF CAIN (7-3) - Victory over DIRE WOLF
    ACK VERT (7-3) - Loss to CHASITY BELT
    HANNAH (7-3) - Victory over MAYOR MCCHEESE
    NEOSPHINCTER (7-3) - Loss to IRON HANDS LEE
    MUSCLE BUM (7-3) - Loss to TALON
    PURPLE FIREFISH (7-3) - Loss to POTATOPILLAR
Hard to imagine the hottest warriors going 2-6 for the turn....

The best turn record was only 4-1 this turn.  GET OUTTA MY WAY and SHEPHERDS were the
only two teams to achieve it.  These teams split the Current Top Team and Team on the
Move awards between them.

Up challengers:    4-5   Warriors increasing recognition class: 21
Down challengers: 11-5   Warriors decreasing recognition class: 11
Even challengers:  1-1

Largest Recognition Gains:  CHASEK (+27) - beat GIRAFFODIL
                            JUST HAD A BIG GULP (+22) - beat HO HUM HO
                            RAZOR HAWK (+21) - beat PEON NECROMANCER
                            WONDER BRA (+20) - beat PAUL
                            SCOOTER (+20) - beat PEOPLE'S ELBOW
Largest Recognition Losses: MUSCLE BUM (-15) - loss to TALON

Most Challenged Warrior:    JOHN BOY of OUT OF THE HILLS
     SWEATCAKE was overcome by JOHN BOY in a popular 5 minute duel

Most Avoided Team:          WASTELAND by SHEPHERDS

CHYKARIN'S WHIM fought their first two fights on the sands this turn.  There were
several other teams returning but they are either part of the Battle Royal or look to
be preparing for the upcoming tournament.  Which reminds me that next turn I will be
making my tourney picks for the upcoming tournament.  Anyone want to go out on a limb
and pick their warriors out for me?

There were five deaths on the sands this turn, all involving Battle Royal warriors,
all but one resulting in an extra point in the Battle Royal.  SCRAPPY was murdered by
the killing machine, THUNDR + LITENING, in a matchup.  LILITH, of course, challenged
and murdered ROID RAGE.  NEON DISCODANCER challenged and killed YANG CHOW.  And in
what normally would be a great embarrassment, UNBREAKABLE 2.0 challenged down and was
slain by LOATHE.  Luckily for RUN AND HYDE, their two losses were overshadowed by
what has to be the worst loss of the turn.  Talcama had a HOBO that was doing nasty
things in the arena.  Nothing could stop this HOBO before today.  But today, an
Ambitious Guard caught up with the HOBO and instead of just bringing him to the
commission to be chastised, took justice into its own hand, and slew this HOBO.

I'll let you all read about the rest of the happenings this turn.  I need to conserve
my energy, just in case any of the growing scum forces finds me  alone in a dark
alley. -- Sherik

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
