                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     First off I think it's probably honorable to offer a round for the honorable
dead at the Broken Bone after.  Farewell, Mersilis!  Sunset, if the setting of the
sun has not a shade of red then we shall provide it by other means.  My manager wants
to express his sadness as nobody should lose someone so close to graduating.  It's
been a strange last couple turns with more blood than was expected but as Sunset is I
expect bloodfueds all around and some good bloodshed.
     My manager was put out and could not attend this face to face for arcane
training that was mandatory.  Anyways, there's always the next.  Okay, after missing
some good prediction for the upcomming round I can say if Stik does not Bloodfued
which would be a fluke then Sidewinder may have a chance to face me.  I will give no
quarter so be prepared to die.  I hold no reservations about dying myself.  I believe
anyone Stik sends has a chance to dethrone me but I do not believe it will be easy!
Since thats all the predictions that should happen because the bloodfueds will make
them pretty boring we shall see.
     Step up and claim your prize if you're worthy of it!  I will be waiting!!
Sunset forever!!!  What's that, Helga's here?  Gotta go!

Your Angel
Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SUNSET?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, OMINOUS REIGN, since TOOL 
SHED took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the taverns 
open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for BLOODTHIRST, whose 1-4-1 this 
turn dropped them by 5 into 14th.  Ha!  TOOL SHED turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st 
place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit 
lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, BEN'S BAZAAR, the 
Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see CHOCOLATE THUNDER win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, CHOCOLATE THUNDER beat BLOODSONG and BLOODSONG lost 18 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  SIDEWINDER challenged SUNSET's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as SIDEWINDER takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but 
why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, SUNSET?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  BEN'S BAZAAR was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DEVIATION.  Ha ha ha ha!  ELISE ISLA was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to GRANDADDY SMURF of BEN'S 
BAZAAR for challenging up by 25 to REZUREKT.  GRANDADDY SMURF won to get 88 points of 
recognition.  And we have BLAKSKUL in a challenge, going down 11 points for the 
fight.  Guess what?  I thought BLAKSKUL showed great skill and promise when he bested 
WILD.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SUNSET's 
morgue.  More variety.  Gee, KANO CLAN, ain't it past due for sending LIU BONG Dark 
Arena?  What took ol' '10-9-2' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Nipped in the bud, you 
might say, was LAND OF HYPOCRISY of DEVIATION this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say 
that, so much as have a belly laugh.  Heh heh.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, 
guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in SUNSET to get a drink than Wildlife 
Unlimited!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Chocolate Thunder -- That's life and death on the sands.  Shataas is avenged,
consider the matter settled. -- Daemonspawn

Yodle Layhe Who -- I should lift weights???  Maybe you're right, or maybe you should
stop taking painkillers before you step into the arena. -- Alazir

Angel -- You're one of them death angels, ain't ya gus?  Congrats on the righteous
capture of the throne, DM. -- Ben's Bazaar

Gredan -- Welcome back, hope you fight a full stable. -- Ben's Bazaar

Stik -- Sorry for you losses this past turn and tourney. -- Gentleben

Makita Kane -- BooYa!!!  That one felt good, hope I kill ya next time. -- Virile Man,
who is feeling exspecially virile today
P.S.  Ben says to tell your manager to try fighting a full stable.

Sasquatch -- That seems par for the course these days, I can't seem to buy a win. --
Grandaddy Smurf, feeling older every day

Opelia Delphi -- Back and forth, back and forth.  I forgot whether we were fighting
or playing tennis there for a little while but then you reminded me, ouch! -- Yodle
Layhe Who, whose yodle is less who-like these days

Alazir -- I have one word for you, bowflex! -- Mime Flayer

Shadizar -- Like the show, did ya, which one did you like the best, I have been
working really hard on my shadow volcano.

All -- I hope I don't miss the next turn, I have AT and will be out of town for 2
weeks and will be getting back just in time to fax in my turns for next time but I
will have to rush it and I still need to pamper the little Mrs.

Sledgehead -- With a head like that, a helmet is a good idea.  But there must be some
brains in there because that was a pretty good challenge. -- Walli Weeble

Grandpa Smurf -- In the backwoods we respect our elders for their wisdom.  But part
of wisdom is to know when to get out of the arena.  The law of the jungle can be a
real pain sometimes to the old ones. -- Sasquatch

Blaksunn -- Nice win.  You are impressive.  Now go revenge the former duelmaster.  If
you can manage that, there is a mug for you at the Broken Bone! -- Bul

Gangol -- It was nice to have you boys back, even if you are just timing for a bit.
-- Graven Ward

Jesicka -- While I am pleased with the win, I'm a bit uncomfortable at this altitude
in the rankings at the moment. -- Pikritori

Yuedebahl Litha -- Good fight, I have gotten much better after these last many turns.
I welcome your next vistor but I shall probably weasel my way out of that one, too,
hehe. -- Weasel

Kung Fu Master -- I wish I had known I was fighting you; I would have dropped the
weapon and gone a few rounds.  Your name's not Bruce by chance?  Oh nm. -- Ice

     No.  Him?  Bah. -- Li Chi Nutt, Master of Kung Fu

Stik -- My condolences on the loss; it was my intension to have him sit on the throne
and see him off as I was challenging to see him up there and respected his ability to
fight.  I read about your replacement, and is there a way to track it down or get a
copy of the old one?  Anyways I'm looking forward to your predictions again and or
anyone else who does them.  I find them amusing.  My magically device I found in the
2k area seems not to be able to write anything there; I will have to investigate it
more. -- Archelf

Poca -- Scared now, huh?  lol -- Wild man (lackluster learner)

Mr. Time -- Hey, I didn't play last time.  I guess next time I need to fill in the
auto pilot better.  My time is valuable and I realize I'd made a mistake.  For some
time now, my manager tells me I may be out of time.  Am I wasting your time?  It's
about time! -- Time

Ghost of Mersilus -- A round on your new DM!  To the honorable dead!!  (raises a mug)
-- Angel

Pynchon -- I was really into punchon with that one.  Sorry, I couldn't resist the
pun.  Good try on your part. -- Jonisson

Agamamnon -- Where's Clytemnestra when I need her? --Ghost of Ramon Lalo
P.S.  It might be even more amusing if you'd spelled your name "Agamammon."
P.P.S.  My replacement's terrible.  Quite hopeless.  It was amusing to hear Jorja
swear when he handed over his papers.  Being dead might not be so bad....

The Fratsfa Slave, five feet eleven inches tall, is a DWARF?  This is totally weird.
-- Selia Dove

The Drill -- Yeah, I met you on your day job at the dentist's office, and I'm not
letting you near me. -- Elise Isla

Miter Box -- Yes, well, I suppose you have to keep the miters somewhere. -- Kallia
May

Spigot -- Only spigot puns?  Kinda limiting, isn't it? -- Kallia May (or may not)

All -- R.I.P. former Duelmaster and all around cool guy Mersilus.  He was 9(+1)-
14(+1)-9-16(+1)-17-9-13 LU, 28/23/21/7/21/16 at death, nicely bonused +3 init and
riposte, +2 decise and at least +2 defense, I made a bookkeeping mistake somewhere
and am too lazy to look it up just now.  If he's +4 def I may run him in the dead
tourney.  Normal damage doing, got good end. with the CN bump.  He didn't learn
enough attack, thought he was gonna peter out in upper adepts or so because of it but
his bonuses and one or two good learning turns helped him past it, and I held off on
the 17 WT train.  I think he may just be the first sitting DM I've ever had slain,
bit of a humbling experience.  To add insult to injury, his nice size 5 replacement
died round 1 of rookies at the Face, so only fighting four this turn, assuming my
late-mailed envelope made it in time.  I'm not a big lunger fan, but was looking
forward to graduating him to get lunger off my second round-robin list, now it's back
to square one.  Sands of Sunset, you giveth and sure as hell taketh away!  Congrats
to Angel and Ominous Reign, raking in the awards!  We'll see if the bloodfeud had any
luck... -- Stik

Lito Sky -- Thought that might work, guess not. -- Wallace

Mutaba -- Bash fest, baby... -- Blakskul

Bul -- Well, it could've gone better for you, big guy. -- Blaksunn

Millhauser -- I'm just glad it went good for me! -- Rezurekt
