                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Duelmaster Column?  You think you will get Kill Steele to submit a column?
Nonsense!  Dense bunch of dolts!
     Little damage lungers are a dime a dozen.  12(+1)-15-3-21-16(+1)-8-11 doesn't
change the glaring weakness.  Sure, an admaster and a couple of masters helps, but he
remains in my book--a wimp.
     The fact that a namby-pamby rules Sunset says something about this place.  Next
thing you know, we'll be acquired by Andoria.

     Sir Steel, manager Metal Marvels (for Kill Steele)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SUNSET!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
W.H.E.T.T. was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Ya gotta be quick 
on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  FEEBLE 
LEGION is now ranked 4th with a 3-1-0 turn.  What's with MATSUDA KAO?  He actually 
beat LAKOTA's DARK SKY, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at KANO CLAN while they watched MATSUDA KAO clobber DARK SKY.  She lost 10 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  HART CRANE was reminded 
on the sands why KILL STEELE is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give 
up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, NOMADIC 
TRIBE!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at METAL MARVELS ain't reelin'!  
NOMADIC TRIBE's mad!  What do people see in SHAMAN?  His 8-1-0?  NOMADIC TRIBE ain't 
talkin', but he's got 47 points.  Maybe LITERATE LOONS' SHERWOOD is one of those guys 
who likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 
27 to CROW BAR.  Sometimes what you expect to do (like in the fights) doesn't expect 
to turn out like you thought.  SHERWOOD bested CROW BAR.  It don't make sense.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  RUNNING WATER's family knows what's wot, after 
seeing the response from LAKOTA!  CONRAD larned his lesson (BONEDUST taught it well), 
and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any GRIM FANDANGO members with the same 
gusto.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Wow, 0-5, a death on my challenge, lose the throne, and I get called out like a
beeyatch in the spy report...I guess it could be worse, could be raining...(looks up
as thunder rumbles)... -- Stik

     Don't say that!  There's too much rain around as it is! -- Temp Ed.

Duelmaster Kill Steele -- Well, that was more of a challenge, anyway, congrats on the
throne.  Can't wait 'til I see your backside on that boat to the Isle!  If I played
my cards right, this turn should see me back on top... -- Bonedust

Bulgakov -- Oh so funny...you won't have that grin on your face next time we meet and
you've got my scimitar stuck in your larynx... -- Graveyard Tan

     Try not to get it stuck!  What if a ghoul comes up behind you and attacks, and
     your blade is stuck?

Hamsun -- That goes double for you, jicky-jack! -- G.T.

Loons -- Hmm, we seem to be developing a nice little rivalry of late.  I give you the
edge since you've planted two of my guys now, I believe.  Well played, but paybacks
are a bitch here in lovely Sunset.  Carry on... -- Stik and GF

Nomad -- What'd I tell you?  Lookin' good! -- Stik

First Reserve -- Okay, fine, you win the needle point contest, big hairy deal!  See
you again sometime soon! -- Bledd

Bolero -- Oh, poor me, what shall I do, such a drastic down-challenge... oh, poor
you. -- Conrad

Nerve Raker -- I see your 'blech' and raise you an 'uckk!' -- Sherwood

V. Pacification -- Turn about--very satisfying.  "Crowd Boring," however, does seem
like an appropriate description.  Let's not do that a third time. -- Shaman

Sherwood -- Much better. -- Raker

Daily -- A feeble name, but a good fight.  Still, "drops like a rock" can never be
good. -- Dream

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

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm
