                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Warriors of Sunset,

     Sorry for not writing a column last turn but my manager, as usual, was a
slacker.  I'm off to the Isle looking like this:  10-12-7-17-17-15-6, High/High, SS
favorite.  I leave with masters in init and dec, and ad. ex in riposte and experts in
attack and defense.  I am blessed in every category.  How much so shall remain a
secret for now.  Well that about wraps it up.  Swords high!!

                                                  Bad Acid
                                                  Cosmic Freak Out
                                                  League Arcane

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SUNSET?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, COSMIC FREAK OUT, since GRIM 
FANDANGO took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, 
MEOW MIX, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 8 in the 
rankings?  TROOPERS turned their 2-3-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the listings 
this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch 
GRIM FANDANGO's heads swell from their 5-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, 
big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ASHANDAR win a 
fight and gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, C. CANARY beat TOAD LICKER and TOAD 
LICKER lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, SUNSET may be getting bland, as BAD ACID stays top dog in the city.  
Cagliostro's Castle, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From SUNSET's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BLACKEST PRIDE was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was CARNAGE CANARIES. 
Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, WATERGATE was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of SUNSET.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

All -- I thought I would drop a quick note to say hello.  I glanced at the personal
ads when I sent in my turn and I was amused to see the same old arguments going on
with some unknown Andorian manager.  It has been a long time since I played here, but
Sunset is one of the original homes of the scariest blood crazed Delarquan managers
to ever play.  There is a long and time honored tradition here for killing as many
warriors as possible without regard for the Commission's flawed ranking system.  I'm
guessing that has not changed.  Anyway, I'm just stopping buy for a while to time
some warriors for tournaments, but I thought I'd run the whole team while I am in
town. -- Doc Steele, Age of Empire

Plague of Feathers -- (sneezing violently)  Id's nod dad I'be allerchic, id's de
feadhers dad god ub by dose. -- Lugo Beloski the not-allergic to feathers (much)

Blak Mask -- So, somebody stole your C, did they?  Think *I* care?  This is my OWN C,
not YOURS.  You want to beat somebody up, go find your C-thief. -- Ace
P.S.  Hmm, maybe that's a CONVICTED Thief?

Sugar Magnolia -- I am desolated, heart-broken.  I had great hopes of you, dear Sugar
Magnolia.  I am in despair.  You are, in the first place, too tall.  How can any
ballerino expect to lift and so on a woman who is nearly as tall as he is?  It is too
much to expect.  I could not execute that move with the requisite (and quite normal
to me) grace.
     And then!  You're neuter!  That is truly horrible.  A shock greater than I can
well express.  I was, you understand, prepared to accept a "steel magnolia," though I
had not visualized a GOLEM.  But...neuter.  You are quite USELESS for....  No, wait.
A golem...capable, no doubt, of being partially disassembled and yet feeling no pain
nor losing any mental faculty, and then to be reassembled.  Hmm.  The possibilities
in this, for certain of the more, ah, dramatic operas....  Yes, you must come and
speak to Madam Butterfly.  I am sure she will have MANY ideas for using your
abilities to the fullest extent. -- Djininski
P.S.  Can you sing?  We'll dub it if we must, but it would be simpler if you did your
own singing.

Suigeneris -- I certainly hope so!  The belief that there is only ONE of you is all
that kept me going while the Infirmary quacks were "patching me up." -- John Darling
P.S.  Most of the patches are striped ticking, quite restrained, but then they went
and used a gaudy floral print on my neck, right where it SHOWS!  And it clashes with
every shirt I have, too.

The Kitten -- Ha!  If I had a mustache, I would twirl it.  You thought you could be a
sex kitten and win me over, did you?  Ha!  We Ducks are not susceptible to sex
kittens! -- Duckbert
P.S.  However, if you had happened to be a graceful, modest, wealthy, well-born she-
Duck, that would have been another matter.

C. Canary -- Well, it WAS MY initiative.  Of course I took it back. -- Duckbert

Ace -- (disappointedly) I was really expecting more from you...skill-wise, that is!
-- Blak Mask (no C's, just K's the way I like it)

Floyd -- Good to see some of your guys finally cycling out.  Congrats to Lord
Protector Bad Acid! -- Stik and GF

Superhost -- Now that WAS indeed being a good host!  I'm ever so grateful! --
Skydancer

Ultraist -- So Doomcorps is back??  You guys are keeping it pretty low key.  Any
chance of some of your new fellow doomies setting up shop here?  We are in need of
some new blood around here, I think. -- Stik

Hope everybody did well in the tourney, it was good to us! -- Stik and GF

Stik -- Kano Clan doesn't know what they are doing or they wouldn't have such
embarrassing records and speak with such idiocy. -- Ultraist

Hippy -- Nice. -- Horns

Lord Genesis -- Welcome back to Sunset!  I hope your stay is longer than the last....
Sly returning also? -- Ultraist

Prime Slime -- That style of "combat" will not get you far here. -- Asylum

Crazy Canary -- You proved your name by agreeing to that fight.... -- Evolution
Theory

Talon Volksie -- I just realized you were here also!  With all the Talon imposters
running around it's nice to have the real deal here. -- Ultraist

I'm gonna try and forget this turn happened. (puts fingers in ears)  Hummmmm.  Nice
weather lately. -- C. Canary

To All of Sunset -- Yes!  We're back!  The Troopers.  It's been too long a time since
we've seen the bloody sands of Sunset!  Well, enough talking!  My warriors will be
the next to say something! -- Lord Genesis

To Whomever Holds the Throne -- The Duelmaster Throne will belong to one of us very
soon!  We know you won't just give it to us, but you will hand it to us on your knees
in the sand! -- The Troopers

To All of Sunset -- Just nice to be back! -- Lord G.
P.S.  Hello!  Old friends!  Old enemies!

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:
     (P-ad declarations in parenthesis)
     [Manager name/Stable name in brackets] followed by their last known W/L

     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
Chartered Recognition Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the
Unchartered Recognition Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the
Popularity Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as This
Week's Favorite on T-500.

     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the
Top Career Honors Unchartered Team on T-500.
     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.
