                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sunset managers, warriors, locals and guests from afar, welcome to the
celebration in honor of Silver Smurfer, your Duelmaster and most recent Lord
Protector.  It has been a good run for Silver with him winning his last 8 fights with
Fly Fisher being his last loss.  I am very proud of his success.  Silver Smurfer was
a test design using a low WL and high WT/DF.  With his mediocre SP of 12 he was
suprisingly fast.  His numbers are as follows:

13(+1)-4-14-17-8-12-17 

His skills are:
INI-19 (MOD)
RIP-13 (not verified)
ATT-24 (MOD)
PAR-7 (not verified)
DEF-13 (not verified)
DEC-21 (MOD)

     For his last challenges he will be going after Mersilus as he is the top
contender and he is using Leni Poole and his second challenge seeing as he is the top
striker and I want to know who is really top since our last fight Silver Smurfer went
no weapon so I want to see how things stack up when Silver is armed with the BS.
     Silver Smurfers FAVS are:  BS HIGH/MOD with and innate ability to use the BASH
tactic (not sure what to think of this) and he learns ATTACK skills more easily than
is normal.
     Silver Smurfer will be going to ADM 100 at least until they decide whether or
not to open up a not-tourney ADM Arena in which case he will be switching to that
arena.
     I look forward to getting his replacement and the replacement for the worthless
piece of crap I got for the dealer.  Hopefully Grandaddy will be graduating soon (in
that I mean that he wins and gets into the CC).
     The out going DM and Lord Protector didn't stand much of a chance' his APL
didn't stop Silver Smurfer's Great DMG from almost tearing his arm off.  With the ADV
EXP ATT and the 17 DF and the ability to get the jump on the poor AB the fight was
over before it started.  I hope that Mersilus or Leni Poole at least give him a
better fight.  I am using his FAV weapon but not his FAV numbers, I want to make sure
that he gets the jump.  I will test the FAV numbers in ADM, I say why ruin a good
thing and not get the jump and end up getting beat my the next opponent.
     It will be a while before I get another duelmaster here in Sunset.  Silver
Smurfer is my 3rd duelmaster since my return about 2 years ago.  My next one might be
Virile Man or it might be Ctuchik (Silver Smurfer's smarter / slower clone) from
Shadowspire, either way it is going to be a while.  I have greatly enjoyed this arena
and I hope that you newbies to Sunset stick around.  Hopefully One-Armed-Bandit gets
his butt back here soon; I have a few loses to my team to avenge.  Kano Clan I am so
happy that you showed back up and I know that the rest of the Sunset is pleased also.
     Thanks for all the fun and all the fun yet to come.  Good luck to all the
contenders for the throne.

Gentleben, manager or Lord Protector Silver Smufer

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SUNSET games.  Fortune did not smile upon THE RED 
BLADES this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 16th position in the wake of 
a 1-4-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week DEVIATION went 4-1-2 to move up 7 in the rankings.  My praise 
to KANO CLAN for their 3-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought 
round deserving of notice!  CHOCOLATE THUNDER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested SHATAAS and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, REZUREKT put down BORGES, 
causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon 
the will of others, Duelmaster SILVER SMURFER challenged MERSILUS last week in a 
match to decide the fate of the throne.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the 
usurper.  All hail MERSILUS, Duelmaster of SUNSET!  Would you believe that over half 
of the old women in SUNSET seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SUNSET.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in SUNSET these 
days is GRIM FANDANGO.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Apparently the stalwarts of NOMADIC TRIBE are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  WALLI WEEBLE take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in SUNSET.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, 
it seems that GRANDADDY SMURF posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
SIDEWINDER.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand GRANDADDY SMURF was beat by 
SIDEWINDER.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I must report the passing of LENI POOLE, veteran of many duels.  
10-7-0 final record Hers was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  My 
hearty congratulations DARKNESS, for thy revenge upon PIKRITORI, slayer of thy fallen 
comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Moriden -- Bad.  Not Good. -- Action

You should not name that dog lifesaver!  You should name him Shataas. -- Bloodsong

Deviation -- Welcome. -- Golgotha's Blooms

@*#@*&& it! -- Grey Fatal

Be'Al'Tzar -- I would prefer it if you did not AXE me out again. -- Yodle Layhe Who
P.S.  Who ever taught you how to treat a lady was gravely mistaken!

Darkness -- Hmmmmm, well now... I think the next time we meet I will have try and be
more "Virile" like because I do not think you believe me, and quit pushing me around
with that shield, it leaves marks on my delicate skin. -- Virile Man

Grandaddy -- I hope you don't have another senior moment this turn, I would actually
like to get you out of this arena and into ADM. -- Gentleben

All Challanger Champions of Turn 640 -- Who wants to be the duelmaster?  Which of you
is not scared to face the Silver Smurfer?  May you all fight valiantly and may the
best man or woman sit upon the throne next. -- Lord Protector and out going DM Silver
Smurfer

Marmaduke and your team Deviation -- Welcome to Sunset, don't let your early success
give a big head... oh, yeah, you already have a big head, don't big dog, well don't
let it get any bigger. -- Gentleben

The Drill -- You must have had some cake batter or cookie dough on you there...
because something just snapped when I saw you in the arena! -- Fritersatafatfarm

Time -- Father time?  Time on my side?  Time to visit the infirmiry.... -- Chocolate
Thunder

Snow White -- You know, I heard those damn dwarves cheering for you in the stands.
No idea why Dopy was cheering for me, but grumpy was really saying some nasty things
as my short spear was doing its business on ya.  I'm sure doc took good care of you,
though. -- Land of Hypocrisy

Master Kush -- That weapon of yours was a little pre-historic, no? -- Row Dayo Drive

Grey Fatal -- I'm happy for your sake that you didn't live up to your name! -- Too
Big to Fail

All -- I think I'm going to like this place a whole helluva lot! -- Marma Duke

     Good.

Kallia -- Potsherds?  Why yes, I do have a few of those.  Care to examine a few?  I
also have a very fine collection of broken weapons, although those are of more recent
vintage.  My rivals would probably have preferred things if I had stuck to the ruins.
-- Pikritori

Doom and Dark at Heart -- Oh, bugger!  My goal was to break the weapon, not the
warrior.  Not permanently, at any rate.  I can accept a bloodfeud, but I do hope I
don't get smoked by a champion for four turns.  I guess the Doom in question just
turned out to be his own, instead of his opponent's as he no doubt intended.  It
kinda reminds me of this old king who heard a prophecy saying, "If you invade, a
great empire shall be destroyed."  Yeah, that doom didn't work out well for him
either. -- Pikritori

Borges -- Nice try, but I have to win some of them. -- Bul

Jonisson -- It was just a hunch.  A good hunch as it turns out, but still a hunch.
And no, there is no opera in the backwoods. -- Sasquatch

     Culturally disadvantaged, eh?

Pynchon -- Neither of us has a very impressive record.  But at least I got mine back
to even.  For now. -- Graven Ward

Silver Haze -- You ancient guys are doing entirely too well.  It seemed to be a good
idea to step in and do something about it before you could rack up a really
impressive start and start stealing top team honors when you become chartered.
Fizban did it for a bit, the last thing we need is another upstart. -- Walli Weeble

Yodle Layhe Who --  You're lookin' kinda pale there.  You still thirsty? -- Be' Al'
Tzar

The Drill -- You should be amazed you won that fight.  I have no idea how you came
back from that to win.  I must have been distracted by someone in the crowd.  Yeah,
that's it. -- Be' Al' Tzar

Yodle Layhe Who -- Laugh it up... -- Shataas

Blaksunn -- Goood fight.  Had your weapon not broken it may have gone the other way.
-- Weasel

Bloodsong -- Yah, yah wanna give that another go? -- Wild

Grandaddy -- Get ur arse back up there and graduate; it's just not right! -- Angel

Silver -- (grin) -- Ice

Cather and Silver -- Grats and welcome to the isle. -- Archelf<BR>

Millhauser -- Grrr impressive. -- Ice<BR>

Lito -- I see you like a good poke, too. -- Angel

Ophelia -- Ahh, that felt good!  New strat helped some, I thinks. -- Wild

Chocolate -- Who would have thought chocolate would beat out time. -- Time

     Lots of people.

Sasquatch -- You have left enormous footprints all over me.  The laundry bill for
that will be equally large, I suspect.  Try not to do that again, okay?  Just stamp
on the sand next to me, and we'll *pretend* you've trampled me underfoot. -- Jonisson

Spigot -- How did you *learn* all that from me?  Well, besides "don't do that, or
this, or the other..." -- Kallia May
P.S.  Call me spigoted, but I resented that challenge.
P.P.S.  And couldn't resist the pun.

Jaryul -- Have you ever considered a career in opera?  You have the endurance for it
(it's very hard work). -- Elise Isla

Liu Bong -- I don't know what you were smoking in that, but it was probably a
mistake.  Try changing the mixture. -- Selia Dove

A Dangerous Criminal?  Hmm.  We don't fight standbys very often here, and I could've
done without that one, too. -- Ramon Lalo

Grass Seed -- I've had really good bread made with sprouted grains.  Of course, they
do have to be ground. -- Kallia

Our congratulations to the Silver Smurfer. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera cast

Mersilus -- What?  That doesn't come with a trip to the infirmary.  The nurses are
going to think I don't care anymore. -- Yuedebahl

Wild -- I guess the learns I get against you should be telling me something. --
Ophelia

Vet Merc -- I hope you were well paid. -- Leni Poole

     Room and board.  If he wants money, he has to win. -- Arenamaster Harth

Angel -- You don't see that every day.  Nice fight. -- Lito

Sidewinder -- Ouch.  Nice job. -- Terra

Silver Smurfer -- Hail, DM and Lord Protector. -- The Red Blades
