                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Back on top for another round.  A moose could get used to this sort of thing.
     Vulge, my friend, I guess you got your shot.  Just keeping picking up those
points two at a time.  Hopefully we can each find different opponents this time.
     As for Djininski's generous offer of a dancing career, I think it would be
unwise of me to start making plans for after graduation.  Things have gone amazingly
well so far, but there is a long way to go before I can consider my goals on
Greywand's isle.  However, Djin's comments do make me wonder--has Madam Butterfly
ever seen a moose dance?  It is, well, a thing best appreciated by another moose.
Lots of headbanging and all that.
     Did anybody else notice that Kano Clan hit 300 losses?  I guess that is a
milestone.  Good or bad, I guess, is an open question, but it does mean they have
stuck it out for a long time.
     And that finished one more fractured column for the high chair.

Bullwinkle J. Moose, Duelmaster of Sunset

Stay tuned next turn.   Will it be "Fall of the House of Bullwinkle?" or "Monkey
Charms?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for SUNSET.  Uncool, KANO CLAN.  I mean 1-4-0 
is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  
The guys at LITERATE LOONS like really pulled together to get a 2-3-0 this turn, 
moving up by 4.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, DEATH MOB 4!  'Cause 
they got 5-0-0 and moved up to 7th!  I just can't say enough good things about BENT 
BLADES.  They went 4-1-1 their first time, don't slouch, and they've got good oral 
hygiene!  MVP award for LAGERKVIST?  LITERATE LOONS' proud of him after beating 
ASSASSIN and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  URSA MINOR got 
smashed by MISASHI SAN, and lost 10 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just 
cause he's Number One!  MAST MONKEY knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster. 
Was that a tear I saw in MAST MONKEY's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And 
wasn't BULLWINKLE fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  NOMADIC TRIBE was SUNSET's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what GRIM FANDANGO's been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from NOMADIC TRIBE, that's 
fer sher.  Can SEA DOGS' GOLDENBEARD be more popular than me?  He was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think 
CANNON FODDER feels about being challenged by NEVERMOOR, 28 points above him?  CANNON 
FODDER is a real man!  He was challenged by NEVERMOOR, 28 points above, and BEAT him! 
Dark Arena, anyone?  Ooh!  Did REED really know what he was doing when he challenged 
GOLDENBEARD?  A 6-10-0 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it 
means.) REED lost to GOLDENBEARD, but he got 1 points.  GOLDENBEARD won, and got 4 
points.  I don't get it.  DANTE FURIOSO must not be a good enough fighter to get in 
fair fights.  He challenged XIAN PING.  14 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what 
they tell me.) I thought DANTE FURIOSO showed great skill and promise when he won 
victory over XIAN PING.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  SUNSET is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Stay Gold -- Maybe you should try challenging Persistent Beggar. -- Reed

Goldenbeard -- Hi Goldy.  You are one cute brute.  Sorry we couldn't spend more time
in the arena together.  I was so distracted by that glorious sun-blessed mane of
yours that I didn't see that long sword of yours coming at me.  Stop by my hut some
time.  I'm a bit of a pirate myself you know.  (wink) -- Fred

Whitman, Stay Gold & Baron Tone -- I am giving Graham, Reed and Rock some vigorous
endurance training over the weekend.  Perhaps you will not win via their exhaustion
when next we meet. -- Captain Billy

Whitman -- Hope I didn't damage your buttocks too bad. -- Graham

Merry Leona -- My interest in your chest is purely envy. -- Reed

Baron Tone -- Hope you appreciated the music of my heavy breathing. -- Graham

Ursa Minor -- Record?  What record?  All those funny numbers?  Pish posh!  They mean
nothing to me.  I fight not for praise, but for the love of the game. -- Fred

Merry Leona -- My goodness!  I have NEVER before seen the PP boys get this excited
about a female woman of the opposite fairer sex persuasion.  On behalf of the entire
Pentagonal Pink stable, I humbly ask you...would you be our lady? -- Captain Billy

Duelmaster Bullwinkle -- For a big hairy moose, your toothpick attack is
impressive...and HOW could you miss the memo?!??  I slipped it under your guildhouse
door like a full half-hour before the fights!  Revoltin'.... -- Vulge the still
popular and still here
P.S.  I need 5 PP's to get my grad notice, one stinkin' turn on that throne!
@$!^%$...

Foorman -- Obviously you needed a lesson in how to properly wield that weapon.  No
charge. -- Nevermoor

Reed -- Skills!!  Skills!!  Glorious skills!!!!  You may be seeing me again.... --
Stay Gold

Lagerkvist -- Well, not as impressive as the previous beat-down on your stablemate,
but I'll take it nonetheless. -- Bledd

Reserve Guard -- Nicely done, sir.  I suspect we shall be having it out again in the
near future.... -- Slythr

And yes, Nomad, I didn't get my ads in last turn...smartass!! -- Stik ;)

Breakspere -- Ah, now that is a song I can appreciate. -- Tengri Khan

Monkey -- Oh, so close.  A little more scummy or a little more aggressive might have
done it. -- Ziggy W

Xian Ping -- You challenged me?!  What can one expect from someone named "Ping?" --
Dante

Assassin -- Now that was a nice little fight.  You weren't half as dangerous as
Tengri suggested, although you still make a lousy teacher. -- Ursa Minor

Tengri Khan -- Well, to ye bleep withe itt.  I was all set to break your spear, and
you didn't bring one to the fight.  Left me at a loss.  In all senses.  But I am not
a small-spirited man, and I congratulate you on a fight well fought, and skills well-
learned. -- Breakspere

Rock -- There is, I feel, a certain lack of subtlety, of overtones and nuances, in
your approach to the matter of gladiation.  A problem, shall we say, with the
establishment of a clear modal pattern and, to put it crudely, a "tune."  This is an
area that needs work.  I question, however, whether you are the singer to work on it?
-- Baron Tone

Rock -- But if you would be interested in dancing, I feel SURE that you would be a
solid ballerino, one that any lady of the stage could depend on. -- Madame Butterfly

Rock -- Do not listen to her.  She wants a big strong man to stand still and catch
ballerinas when they take flying leaps through the air.  Unless you see yourself as a
sort of glorified trampoline, you will ignore her thoroughly. -- Baron Tone

Surly Deckhand -- You're well named, you rude orc! -- Rossmont

Gutshot -- How unpleasant!  Can't the Infirmarians do something about that?  I would
think that the risk of tripping over your own intestines would be unsettling. --
Merry Leona

Raider -- Surely that's too easy?  Maybe we should get together somewhere and see if
we can figure out what we did wrong. -- Skellia

Bullwinkle -- Wall of steel, 11  9+2  13  11  17  16  9  Broadsword (never used it
that I recall, but it was so long ago...)  high/moderate. -- Djininski

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

Chase a.k.a. SwineTiger

2 February 2008
ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with

appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
