                    The
                             Winter
It seems to be working.  

I found this alcove off of the Duelmaster throne room looking for the ba-, well, never 
you mind!  

I am Baron Von Speedster, greatest stagecoach driver in the world!  

By necessity and, luckily, by tradition, I wear black.

Anyway, I discovered both this wonderful machine and nearly a ream of good paper.  If 
we may take the dust previously upon it as any indication, this typist's apparatus 
appears to have been neglected by previous occupants of the esteemed seamy Seamian 
throne.  

Previous occupants notwithstanding, please be clear that I have not referred to it as 
the Simian throne!  Indeed, if I may be permitted to say -- rather, type -- two words, 
I would assure my eager readership that I consider the trappings and ornamentation of 
the Duelmaster's throne to be anything but; that is, if you will permit me, I will 
assure each of you that the duties and responsibilities of office are first and 
foremost in my mind as, I am sure, they are in yours.

As such, I suspect my readership is salivating for titillating details about who I am 
as Seam's best warrior as well as such personal tidbits as I might be inclined to 
share.  

As I already mentioned, I am the greatest stagecoach driver in the world.  Really, 
upon consideration, that is everything of import to my readership.

If I had my druthers, that, as they say, would be that.  

However, not wishing to neglect the press apparatus, and acknowledging the importance 
of the 4th estate or -- depending upon the state, consulate or territory in which you 
find yourselves -- some other integer, I have agreed to provide answers to the 
following questions submitted earlier to me by none other than intrepid spy reporter 
Sidara Brightbell.  I hope she is happy.

"How would you describe your feeling about your ascension to the Duelmaster's throne?"

A horrible relief.  Success can sometimes be just as frightening and disconcerting as 
failure, especially when you have questions about your abilities.  

"Obviously, Duelmaster is an incredible goal.  What do you see as your next goal?"

Longevity.

"How did you manage to put down Smokehead?"

Who?

Ok, just kidding.  He is good, well beyond my capabilities.  I saw doors open for him 
during the fight that, frankly, just didn't open for me.  And yet, I didn't get lucky.  
Mostly the issue was never in doubt.  That's what speed does.

"How would you characterize Unlikely Heroes' avoidance of your team?"

Wise.

"What do you think of Den?"

Who?

"Were you prepared to potentially take the Throne?"

Of course.  That's a dumb question.  That was the plan all along.

"Ok, how did you prepare?"

Seriously?

"Yes, seriously."

Hmmm, that Sidara is good with her pre-submitted questions.  

There's really only one threat to someone of my capabilities.  That would be just dumb 
luck.  Around here that is called the "Aimed Blow" discipline, using the term 
'discipline' only in the loosest sense.  Stand around until you get lucky enough to 
hit someone.  That's not skill.  So, yes, we had an appropriate member of the team 
take out Midjidjajidjada, or whatever her name is, just to make sure she couldn't 
approach my throne.  At least this turn.

"Speaking of that, what's your impression of your teammates?"

Who?  Oh, uh, yes.  Great chaps, all of them.

"Who do you intend to challenge from the throne?"

I want to say one word to you. Just one word.  Are you listening?  

Plastics.

So there you have it.  That, as they say, is that.  

With gentle indulgence and uncanny stagecoach abilities, I remain

                                          Yours truly,

                                          Baron Von Speedster
                                          Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

Hello, my pretties!  It is wonderful to see you again and welcome to lucky turn 13 in 
Seam.  I know many of you are still waiting for news to trickle in about the Dead 
Tournament.  Until then, you can enjoy this hot off the press news from Seam.  I went 
to report on the tournament with Phineas.  I still haven't gotten the graveyard smell 
out of my clothing.  The aroma is a mixture of wet earth and disappointment.

Geoplastique from 7th Sanctum made a bold challenge for the throne this turn.  He set 
his sights on Duelmaster Brn Von Speedster.  It only took 2 minutes for Brn Von 
Speedster to show the crowds why he is the reigning gladiator in Seam.  Congrats once 
again to the Brn and Vlad, who managers those over at I'm Not Eggbert.  Geoplastique 
is managed by Hombre and remains the top recognized contender for the Duelmaster 
throne.  DMobster and Floyd are in positions as well to make plays for the title too.

Nobody wanted to face the fighters from Pixelblenders this turn.  They stand as the 
turn's most feared.  The unlikely avoiders this turn were Dameon Darkheart and his 
Unlikely Heroes.  There are many warriors in Seam looking for Lustful Tramp...  You 
know what?  I am not even going to make any jokes about that one.  Cluckeroo fought 
Lustful Tramp and beat her in a 1 minute mismatched fight.  There were a total of 53 
fights this turn, and nearly half of them were challenges.  This makes for an exciting 
and active arena.  Keep up the good work!

There were only 5 deaths this turn and 2 of those came via the Dark Arena.  Quithyra 
of Darque Knights was the most experienced warrior to die this turn.  Her 6-6-0 record 
is brought to an abrupt end by Fuzzy Logic of The Killing Fields (how appropriate).  
Next, we have Fragment from Pixelblenders meeting his end at the hands of Stanza from 
House of Pain.  The last death was Murdo from Deadline.  At 0-4-0, not too many people 
were surprised by his fate.

Unlikely Heroes keep the top spot for the last 3 turns by virtue of more kills than 
Phantom Regiment.  Phantom Regiment jumped up 4 spots to number 2.  Wyld Masquerade 
made a bold 9 place move from 14th to 5th.  The biggest gain for the turn belongs to 
Holy Ship! who rose by 11.  The biggest loss for turn 13 goes to Pixelblenders.  They 
fell out of the top 5 down to 8th.  We want to welcome Stone Age to Seam.  They only 
sent 1 warrior for this cycle and Shale went straight to the Dark Arena.  Perhaps they 
are eliminating the weak links on the team before beginning?  One can only hope.

That wraps up another fantastic turn in Seam!  Join us for turn 14 in two weeks.  More 
warriors are rising in the ranks and soon more will be able to challenge for the 
throne.  Why don't you come and be a part of this action!?!?  I'll see you there, my 
sweets!

Who said said killing Halfwit didn't have a benefit?  Enabled us to edge out Thirsty 
Thugs last turn!  Free fight! -- Egbert

Smokehead -- Just put some scrip in credit for me for those learns, good sir. -- BVS

Fiddy -- Hope you learnt your lesson.  If not, I can smack you around again. --  Cpt 
Buzzy

Midjidjajidjada -- You dance amazingly well... on the end of my weapon. -- Cluckster

Mitch -- Wow, you just stood there while I chopped you up.  It's like you didn't have 
much experience in the arena or something. -- Wynn Duffy

Seam -- Sure smells better around here with Bourne of Hate hiding from me doesn't it? 
-- Den

Gunsmith -- I can't speak for everyone, but I enjoyed it when you missed a turn 
because you are a bit of a dork. -- Den

Seam -- I get the great honor of noting which teams had records worthy of note last 
turn.  Topping off the list of idiots is Thirsty Thugs whose 1-4 proves they are 
thirsty for losses and probably not much else, hope your garbage turn quenched that 
thirst.  Not sure what it means, but nature must make pathetic Duelmaster managers as 
Nature Made went 1-4 last turn and has yet to revenge a bloodfued, I guess nature is a 
bit of a sissy.  Another really bad team is Lost Sentinels, going 1-4 last turn and 
also losing 4 warriors over the last 4 weeks, along with the sentinels being lost I 
would assume your sanity is lost as well.  Holy Ship!  Yep, they went 1-4 as well.  
The ship I remember with a hole is the USS Minnow and those guys were stuck for years.  
Oh yeah, the Outlaws went 1-4 but we all expected that, they are managed by Gunsmith 
after all.  Turn 13 is when the real men fight, maybe I'll see some of you there. -- 
Den

                        NOTE from the Gladiatorial Commission 
Several warriors were entered into the Grand Tournament from no-tourney arenas.  
Please remember that each manager signed a pledge upon entering the no-tourney arenas, 
stating, in part: 

     "I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a tournament, nor 
     will I use a tournament prize on a warrior from this team," 
and 
     "I understand that any warrior that participates in a tournament or receives 
     a tournament prize shall be sent to the Dark Arena until they are dead."  

The Gladiatorial Commission assumes that these entries were in error and has refused 
those warriors entry into the tournament.  However, an exception was made for warriors 
entered into Dead Tournaments, but it shall be understood that if a no-tournament 
warrior earns resurrection, that team must move to a regular arena or, as stated in 
the Pledge, that warrior must be sent to the Dark Arena until they are dead.  Please 
direct any questions to Customer Service.
