                             Notes from the arena champ.

Reaganomics, two words.  I think you know what they are...(EG)...

Maybe Kill Steele will give me more of a challenge this turn.  I don't know, this
chair's awful damn comfortable once you get in it, tell you what!  The Old Man wants
me to stay here a couple more, too.  He's itchin' to get rid of me ASAP, something
about wanting to try this dueling thing out for himself.  Hah!  He's in for a
shock...until next time, if there is one, I am,

Bonedust of Grim Fandango
Duelmaster of Sunset

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for SUNSET.  Too bad, GRIM FANDANGO, but METAL 
MARVELS was just too good to be stopped.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or 
anything, but GRIM FANDANGO really goofed with their 0-5-0.  NASTY MOB like really 
fought hard to move up to 11th from 16th.  Way to go!  What was the name of that team 
who got 4-1-1 this turn for a total 42-43-5 you ask?  (Sure)  LITERATE LOONS' their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for ADDUCTOR MAGNUS?  MUSCLE MEN's proud 
of him after beating REAGANOMICS and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  REAGANOMICS got smashed by ADDUCTOR MAGNUS, and lost 16 points!  And I was 
just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome KILL 
STEELE.  Aren't METAL MARVELS proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  METAL MARVELS was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 34-18-1 record really that scary?  I don't know what GRIM FANDANGO's been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from METAL MARVELS, that's 
fer sher.  Can FEEBLE LEGION's GLASS CEILING be more popular than me?  She was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  See if I ever talk to BOLERO 
again!  CONRAD was so low when She challenged she.  Hhmph!  If BOLERO can't beat a 
warrior 20 points below herself, that she CHALLENGED, she oughtta be selling food in 
the stands!  People were asking me did HAMSUN REALLY challenge GRAVEYARD TAN?  (all 
right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but GRAVEYARD TAN wants me to write about it since he was subdued by 
HAMSUN.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Enough already!  All I've heard lately is "Will LAKOTA Bloodfeud HART 
CRANE of LITERATE LOONS to revenge RUNNING WATER's death?"  I mean, who cares?  
Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  SUNSET is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

I would have proclaimed a 4-0 turn as pleasing, satisfying, and successful, but there
were no kills.  Disgusting. -- Sir Steel, Manager of Metal Marvels

Graveyard Tan -- I can't quite place it, but I know I've seen you someplace before...
I remember as a child playing with a slingshot in my mammy's backyard, knocking the
pretty-colored bottles over one by one...oh yes, that's right, now I remember you,
target practice.  Though I have to admit those silly bottles had more sense than to
take a hundred hits before toppling over. -- Bulgakov

Vulge -- What happened?  It worked last time around.  The times they are a-changin',
and clearly not for the better. -- Hamsun

Sons of Satan -- It appears it pays to be the challenger. -- Thorgard and Tiger

V. Pacification -- Nice win.  But it seems to me that the editor should never allow
the words "viciously subdued" to be used in the same fight description as "19 minute
bout." -- Shaman

Elite Guard-- Do you save that armor because it did such a good job, or throw it
because it took so many hits?

Sherwood -- I really have nothing to say about that fight besides..."blech!" -- Raker

Feeble Legion -- Not all that feeble, won more than you lost and a kill to boot!
Welcome to Sunset, Jewel of the Delarquan Federation.  Who's your manager?  Stop by
the double B tonight for welcome-to-town drinks on us! -- Stik and Grim Fandango

Nomad -- Blades up, buddy!  Keep pluggin'!! -- Stik

First Reserve -- Well, I now see why you're in the reserves.... -- Bolero

Genghis Tron -- Nice slugfest for a girl's first fight, tough guy!  Maybe again some
time.... -- Bledd

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
