                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

I'm telling you, it's like Deja Vu all over again!!  Adductor walks out onto the
sands to meet me, and I'm like, 'didn't I just take care of you?!??'  And he's all,
'there's no one else here!'  And I'm all, WHAM--DING!!!!!  Done!!  THAT'S how we
dance the Grim Fandango, baby!!  Heading out of the arena, counting my skills and my
money, a coupla gladiator groupy honies on my arm, strolling down to the Broken Bone
for some post-fight celebration.  The winner, and STILL Duelmaster!!  Yours truly.
Me.  Scythe!!

Well, the challengers class sure changed in a hurry, no more killer slasher to worry
about, he got what he had comin', it appears.  Maybe one of Crip's boys will actually
run two cycles in a row and I'll see what old Stella's made of.  Hopefully more than
her teammate, Hoegarden, who I dispatched post haste a few turns ago.  We shall see.
Salute, Sunset!!

Scythe of Grim Fandango
Duelmaster of Sunset

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SUNSET brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, D.R.I., since GRIM 
FANDANGO took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  EQUITES VIRTUS 
turned their 4-1-1 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see BUKOWSKI win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TUSK beat 
REAGANOMICS and REAGANOMICS lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as ASYLUM takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else 
do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SUNSET, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  D.R.I. the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was EQUITES VIRTUS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ADDUCTOR MAGNUS was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  VIOLENT PACIFICATION was challenged by 
one of GRIM FANDANGO's warriors this turn, with BONEDUST having a lead of 26 points 
going into the fight.  Question now is, will SUNSET accept this sort of tacky 
behavior?  BONEDUST beating VIOLENT PACIFICATION.  The insult, the....yech!  I guess 
I can give a little credit to CROUCHING HAMSTER of D.R.I. for challenging up by 19 to 
DJININSKI.  CROUCHING HAMSTER lost to get 61 points of recognition.  And we have 
HORACE in a challenge, going down 9 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought 
HORACE showed great skill and promise when he was killed by GHENGIS.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, HORACE of EQUITES VIRTUS has added the final loss to his 4-6-1.  Tee hee!  
Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in SUNSET to get a drink than Cagliostro's 
Castle!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Hart Crane -- Whoops, accidentally used my regular strat there.  But, it really
didn't make much difference, did it? -- Tusk, grinning evilly

Sherwood -- I shoulda know it'd be you.  We'll see what transpires this turn, it
could get interesting! -- Bloodred

Breakspere -- Thanks for the confidence boost, but I've got a bad feeling about my
future here.... -- Montrieux

Azrael -- Yep, you're still my beeyatch.  You need to avoid me and go after some of
these ripe TP scum floating around up here! -- Bonedust

Toker -- I guess Lady Luck was with you, eh?  Mordant is fine, (I've got a couple old
teams there myself) but I do hope you'll stay on here! -- Stik and G.F.

Lakota -- Why so quiet?? -- Stik

Good luck to all entering in the spring tourney, let's bring home some hardware for
Sunset!  None of my local boys will be participating (unless I get an awesome DA
repl), but I'll be sending at least one Fandangoite from ADM.  Blades up!! -- Stik

Horace -- Of all the inanities.  How embarrassing to be knocked down and beaten by a
tap from a shield.  I'll never live this one down.  Hey, wait a minute.... [cough
cough] -- Malouf

W.H.E.T.T. -- Welcome to the Jewel of the Delarquan Federation.  May your stay be
long, blood soaked and glory-filled!  Drinks on us tonight down at the Broken Bone!!
Who's managing you, by the way?  And dare we ask what the acronym means?? -- Stik and
Grim Fandango

Germanius -- That was well done.  While I would not actually THANK you for the
defeat, I feel I earned it. -- Rossmont, much easier to get along with now that he
isn't listed as a dwarf

Lillian Lust -- The idea of getting together with you for purposes of, um, lust,
well, it has many attractions.  But not in the arena.  Later, though...? -- Djininski

Stella Artois -- Wretched mammal!  You betrayed me!  I was told that female mammals
are soft-hearted and always a pushover for someone who looks pitiful.  But could YOU
be like that?  Noooo. -- Duckbert
P.S.  Perhaps I need to work on my "pitiful" image.

Montrieux -- Whatte?  Art thou a Frenchman?  In Godde's nayme, I had not lookt for
such a wight.  Begone! -- Breakspere

Quintus Rex -- I blame the Commission for that.  If they had not insisted on listing
me as a six-foot-four-inch dwarf, I would have been more relaxed and able to pay more
attention to the job in hand.  But could they get it right?  Could my own manager
even get it right?  Of COURSE not.  Phfaugh. -- Ghost of Korush

Stik -- Yes, but I thought I'd gotten them a set of loaded darts. -- Nick

Ed. -- No, during the summer, we use them on upstart mammals.  I suppose that counts
as practice of a sort. -- Duckbert, Master of Duck-Fu

     Does that mean upstart mammals are safe during the winter? -- Ed., easily
     confused

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
