                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Bill's fault I missed the column last turn.  Managing his time appears to be a
bit of a weak point for him.  Like managing lungers.  He is pretty stoked about
finally getting a graduate here in Sunset and making Top Team for the first time on
the same turn.  A little simple, maybe, but a nice enough fella.
     Which brings me to Millhauser.  Glad you're still alive to read this, but that
was a pretty cool way to get the throne back.  I guess the best of five between us
goes my way after all.  Go figure on the death.  I was running a 5 KD and aiming non-
lethal.
     Big Hairy and Bul, I avoided you guys because you failed to teach me any skills
in each of our recent fights.  How did you like that skill payoff, Sasquatch?  Maybe
that's your fave learn too.
     Since he's the top guy, Rezurekt gets his shot on my way out.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SUNSET needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, THE RED 
BLADES, but 420 B.C. was just too good to be stopped.  I couldn't believe it.  Did 
420 B.C. really go up by 12?  If only those guys didn't have so may missing teeth...  
Gross!  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but TEAM SLIME really 
goofed with their 2-3-0.  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 6 
after going 4-1-0.  Keep it up, TOOL SHED!  MVP award for SLEDGEHEAD?  TOOL SHED's 
proud of him after beating WALLI WEEBLE and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  SALAMANDER's match with GRASS SEED cost him a loss of 17 points!  Oh, wow, 
like the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in all SUNSET.  She got the most 
challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, TERRE HAUTE must be pretty gutsy!  It 
challenged the Duelmaster from THE RED BLADES.  Does this beast have a death wish or 
what!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, 
welcome TERRE HAUTE.  Aren't TRIAL & ERROR proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that 
said SUNSET's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at Wildlife Unlimited?  Don't look at 
me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of GRIM FANDANGO must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are NOMADIC TRIBE?  
GRIM FANDANGO, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Ooh!  Did OPHELIA DELPHI really know what she was doing when she 
challenged BUL GOBLINHEWER?  A 11-8-0 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't 
know what it means.) OPHELIA DELPHI was so studly out there in the sands!  Beating 
BUL GOBLINHEWER and getting 19 points.  THE RED BLADES must be proud, for sure!  
People were asking me did SCARBROUGH MAN REALLY challenge NANNERPUSS?  (all right, 
maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, 
but NANNERPUSS wants me to write about it since he defeated SCARBROUGH MAN.  
Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  I hear BEN'S BAZAAR sent VIRILE MAN to the 
Dark Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  So BLOODTHIRST has one more 
turn to Bloodfeud TEAM SLIME's ZONZALIN.  Big deal.  SACRIFICIUS' dead.  What's the 
point?  Ya just gotta go on.  Don't look back...  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!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Nomies -- Number one; you're a moron for sending your guy, Abbondanza, out with no
armor.  Number two; you're a moron for sending him up against the formidable Metaru
Hei.  And number three; you're a moron for placing confidence in a P-Ripper.  So I
guess overall you're just a moron.

Oh!  I've had a couple of P-Rips in the past actually good enough to graduate with
decent winning records, but that was many years ago.  Give it up, man!  A good P-Rip
is exceptionally rare and I suspect your Abbondy is just an average one. -- Kano

DM Terra S. -- Congrats on the invite.  Will you write us a farewell column and
reveal your secrets?  Care to dance the Fandango with me one last time?? -- Rezurekt

Ophilia D -- Thought I had a shot at that one, guess not.  It was almost my DA
notice, but I came thru in the tournament (whodathunkit?) so the Old Man's giving me
another shot. -- Blakskul

Bullfrog -- I don't think so, croaker boy. -- Jet Blak

Barbaric Smurf -- That was too easy really.  But, you did well enough to have lived
through it and that's important, so we can beat you again. -- Like Water

Panama Red -- Nice little scrum! -- Helzanjul

And hey, we've hit 500!!  Losses... (golf clap)... what a milestone... -- Grim
Fandango

     Milestones are where you find 'em.  Usually by running off the road and breaking
     a wheel on the darned things, but that's life.

TERRA SIGILLATA -- I honestly did not think I would win that fight, but with you
holding the throne, I had to try.  It didn't work.  Someone else can have the last
dance.  Congrats on a well earned graduation. -- Sasquatch

Jonisson -- And another win!  Don't retire to the theater just yet, I may need
another one. -- Bul

Chesterton -- That is how it works.  It looks good for you and then... no.  You lose.
-- Walli Weeble

Metaru Hei -- That wasn't how that was supposed to go.  You were impressive.  But I
do think we will do that again someday. -- Abbondanza

Ice -- Oh, just go away.  That makes 6 losses in a row.  I really need to turn that
around. -- Graven Ward

     Turn a six, find a nine.  Be careful what you wish for.

Whew, I hate being sick.  But I think we're back now.  Glancing over the turn I
should have written personals for last time, I find:

A reckless challenge by Dreynar.  What were you THINKING, man?  To come out against
someone attacking the arm while wearing your heart on your sleeve was a sure recipe
for suicide.  I'm sorry you're dead, I wouldn't have minded defeating you again, but
it was your challenge. -- Jonisson

The current turn:

Scarlet Kingsnake -- Wow, I've never seen a snake with a beard before.  Weird. --
Kallia May

Bul Goblinhewer -- You had better not be my "secret admirer." -- Jonisson

Angel -- This is some kind of trick, isn't it?  You're trying to persuade me to join
some cult, right? -- Selia Dove

Mutaba Iro -- Bah.  No fun at all. -- Elise Isla

Wall-E -- The way you oozed out there and mucked up my armor and weapon was
revolting. -- Trelaine

Our congratulations to Terra Sigillata. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera cast

Sasquatch -- Nice thought with the avoid, but I was using the same strat as on my
challenge to you.  Good luck to you. -- Terra

Disease -- Thanks for your help eliminating that strat idea. -- Yuedebahl

Thikskul -- It will take a bit more from you than a shiny suit any more. -- Ophelia

The Butcher -- That was a tastier cut. -- Bruno

Purple Magic -- Nice moves!  I bet your record will get better. -- Hope Springs

Tribes -- Welcome to Sunset! -- Bill the Bard and The Red Blades

DM/LP Terra Sigillata -- Congrats on retaining the throne and getting your invite,
live a long and fruitless life. -- Ben's Bazaar

Bill-the-Bard -- Four-1 turn, current top team, DM and your first graduate from
Sunset all in one turn.  It must have been nice to be Bill last week.  Congrats! --
Gentleben

Miniami Tori -- Let's try that again with some one else, some one who has more than a
3 WT. -- Gentleben

Silver Haze -- I personally perfer a Silver Linning but that's just me. -- Scarbrough
Man

Time -- I guess I had too much Time on my hands. -- Yodle Layhe Who

Like Water? -- Yes I do! -- Barbaric Smurf

Virile Man -- You proved nothing except that Black Orc sucks worse than you, back you
go. -- Gentleben

RUGS -- Do you have a under-the-table offering dish?  I have looked under all the
tables at the Warty Toad but no dishes...do they even use dishes at the Warty Toad?
-- Gentleben

     We want our offerings right up top, and we want BIG offerings.  The hot items
     this week are barbed-wire lap robes and chocolate covered kidneys.  Ah, make
     that chocolate covered kidney BEANS. -- RUG #457343
