                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail, Sunset and all who prevail here and all those joining us from afar,
Grandaddy Smurf, your one-time defending Duelmaster here to entertain you with his
words.
     Another great fight with Famine and another 3 skills to keep up the 3.0
skills/fight ratio.  If I successfully defend my throne again I should get my bid if
Gentleben has done his math correctly.  I will be the second BA graduated for the
Benster and the second graduate since his return to the game.  Ben is very very
excited especially since Silver Smurfer is sitting waiting for me to get the heck out
of here so that he can sit on the throne.  Not saying that that is going to happen,
just that that is what he wants.
     First things first, though.  First I have to defend the throne and get my
invite.  I did not challenge Cather this time and did not avoid him either, expecting
that Nomad would bloodfued with the post Mr. Nomad made in the online forums
(whatever that is), it does not look like Cather's dance ticket is going to be full
so the door is wide open for his challenge if Morbid Crusader avoided me
successfully.  I don't think I would have a problem with Cather on a random matchup
nor on my challenge but if he gets to make up a strat, it could be the end of my
throne time, and if Stik is correct it could be the end of my time on the planet.
Here's hoping that I get my challenge into Morbid Crusader.  However, I did use
Cather as a backup challenge just on the off chance.  Yes, Famine and Wallace, I did
avoid the two of you, my 21 will only goes so far and I know that.
     With the absence of Yodle Layhe Who from the roster last turn we only fought
four and split so we are still four away from 50% or as Gentleben says from .500 (Ben
pronounces it as 500, something from the "Days of Yore" he says).  Yodle Layhe Who
may actually make an appearance this turn, not as the lunger we thought she was going
to be but as a striker, (Gentleben calls her a "Re-placement Re-placement"), so
hopefully we will get to "500" before I graduate.  Speaking of graduating I can't
wait to see what my FAVs are.  Gentleben has agreed to let me at least make a small
showing in ADM-100 but that I probably don't have a long career there.

See you on the sands, my fellow Sunset warriors.
Grandaddy of them all (all them smurfs),
Grandaddy Smurf

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SUNSET games.  Former top team SERPENTS HOLD was 
unseated this week as GRIM FANDANGO moved up from 6th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at OMINOUS REIGN's 
guildhouse after a 1-3-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 10th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week GRIM FANDANGO went 5-0-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  My praise to 
FIZBANS FOLLIES for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully 
fought round deserving of notice!  FOUGHT TOO MANY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SELIA DOVE and was awarded 17 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LENI POOLE put down 
DISEASE, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was 
not present for the title fight this week as WALLACE boldly challenged GRANDADDY 
SMURF in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  The city has turned out in 
honor of WALLACE, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels 
this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SUNSET "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  GRIM FANDANGO is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of BEN'S BAZAAR are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
CATHER.  Watch your back!  CATHER must really be harboring a grudge against the DARK 
AT HEART guild!  Merciless, 30 challenged down FAMINE points this week to duel with 
she.  Surprising everyone, FAMINE bested CATHER, earning 13 points of recognition in 
the process!  A knave's just desserts are the sweetest victory.  A match that raised 
a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that BORGES posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized JONISSON.  The results, you ask?  Well, the 
firebrand BORGES was beat by JONISSON.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of 
steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  SASQUATCH has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  
Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  GRAVEN WARD has the 
town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  BORGES must hold silent, for 
this week he was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by JONISSON of 
SWORD OPERA.  Hail JONISSON for thy victory!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in SUNSET.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
