                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Fritter was clearly spending WAY too much time at the fat farm.  A few hacks,
and down goes Fritter.  He came out slower than a gay politician.
     At any rate, I remain, for one more cycle anyway.  Let's see if I can avoid the
Nomads and get another win...

Your Duelmaster, Gecko

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
SUNSET.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  LITERATE LOONS now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  For every winner there is a loser.  
Speaking of losers, lets take a look at TOOL SHED, who went down to 1st from 6th.  
Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, BLOODTHIRST has advanced 6 
places in the rankings.  LITERATE LOONS is no joke as it posted a 5-0-0 week 
advancing from 6th place to 1st place.  Hey everybody, watch out for SASQUATCH, who 
flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing SELIA DOVE like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  Drawing on all of its experience as a 18-10-0 warrior, TERRE HAUTE 
went for the Duelmastership against GECKO this week.  It's a proud day for the TRIAL 
& ERROR stable, as their warrior, TERRE HAUTE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SUNSET arena.  Did you 
hear that OMINOUS REIGN was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of OMINOUS REIGN's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  OMINOUS REIGN + Weapons That go Boom = NOMADIC TRIBE + Avoid 
City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of SALAMANDER, who was this week's 
most challenged warrior.  In a mismatch, our friend YODLE LAYHE WHO of BEN'S BAZAAR 
got heroic notions and challenged RUIN.  What did it get her?  A 9-10-1 record, 
that's what.  To the crowd's chants of 'Bo-zo bo-zo bo-zo', RUIN was taken out by the 
lower-ranked YODLE LAYHE WHO.  (Maybe it's time to think Dark Arena?).  In a touching 
display by a 'touched' warrior, SILVER HAZE went after KALLIA MAY, who was higher by 
18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, SILVER HAZE beat KALLIA MAY.  ROW DAYO DRIVE 
of DEVIATION had better have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a 
challenge which he won.  I thought ROW DAYO DRIVE showed great skill and promise when 
he subdued GREY FATAL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  SELIA DOVE 
II:  THE REMATCH.  Carrion Bird Heaven:  SELIA DOVE was killed by SASQUATCH (The true 
definition of 'Street Pizza').  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, GRAVEN 
WARD was mashed by BORGES, who let GRAVEN WARD know that killing members of LITERATE 
LOONS is a no-no.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very 
important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the SUNSET giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Literate Loons -- Well, dang!  I assure you, the last thing I wanted to do was to
kill a warrior I could actually defeat!  How many veteran pikers have you lost in
this arena now?  It is at least four, isn't it?  Bummer.  I stand ready to accept
your bloodfued if you want to take a shot. -- Graven Ward

Kano -- Seriously, no vision because I haven't noticed a Kano ripper?  Don't you
think the 2-10 record you mentioned has more to do with it?  I am still awaiting your
first challenge since you told me you were on my tail.  Oh, and for the record, the
only previous ripper I have fought in Sunset, Dante Furioso, graduated with a 17-7
record.  Even so, I have never claimed to be an expert on the style, so the "pompous"
attack is interesting.  But then, I'm not expecting you to make sense. -- Nomad

Good bye, Angel!  Fare you well on the Isle! -- Nomad and the Tribe

Roy Dayo -- From what I have heard that is certainly a deviant location.  But I guess
I could handle it. -- Walli

Sherrif Shooter -- You challenged me?  Interesting choice.  I guess I looked like an
easy target with that record, so I should expect it.  Thanks for the win, it has kept
me alive for at least one more turn. -- Abbondanza

Grim Fandangoans -- You seem to be getting in the way of my bashers.  Wins haven't
come easily for them, so I guess I should be thankful.  Do you think one of them can
get a shot at the title?  It would be nice. -- Nomad

Gecko -- Damn you, little lizard!  I wasn't expecting that from you! --
Fritersatafatfarm

Wild -- Looks like you need some government cheese!!! -- Too Big To Fail

Nannerpuss -- No worries, my young menace, you will get yours when you least expect
it!!  <insert haunting laughter here> -- Your friends from Deviation

Elise Isla -- I thought you and I could rule the universe together... I was sadly
mistaken. -- Darth Deviate

Walli Weeble -- You  may have wobbled, but never did fall down... and that is the
trick, isn't it? -- Row Dayo Drive

Abbondanza -- You must be the deputy. -- I Shot the Sheriff

Nomadic Tribe -- You keep on knockin' but you can't come in!  <smirk> -- Deviation

Bloodsong -- I think that was an unfortunate tune of events for me, we will be
singing a different melody next time. -- Yodle Layhe Who
P.S.  Do you know how to yodle?

Machide Shou -- Well I guess you Shou'd me only wish you had Shou'd me more skills.
-- Barbaric Smurf

Seliora -- Damn!  Foiled again. -- The Foiler

Plague -- Hmmmm... let's try that again shall we? -- Amazon Barbie

Sam Byck -- What's the matter, didn't like my Speedos? -- Speedo Smurf

Gecko -- Congrats on the defense of the throne, good luck making it a Threepete! --
Ben's Bazaar

Arena Master -- Did someone pay you off?  I can double their offer and throw in a
nice set of coasters. -- Gentleben

     No, but I would be glad to give YOU a chance to pay me off.  Inflation hits us
     all, you know. -- Arenamaster Harth

Silver Haze -- I've been trying to figure out where you fit into your team's date,
but it's too complicated, what with Alastari being on a different calendar and all.
So I've decided to visualize you as the veil around the Pleides, Pleiades?  Whatever,
those stars.  Though I don't see why we have the same stars if we don't have the same
world.  Or maybe it's all illusion.  Or names transfered and the original of those
stars are different and elsewhere.  Eh, makes my head ache! -- Kallia May

Darth Deviate -- Listen, that's just SICK.  I couldn't let you keep doing that. --
Elise Isla

Cerryl -- I thought for a minute you were a "Cherryl," and it had me shaking in my
shoes!  I'm so glad you aren't. -- Trelaine
P.S.  I dated a Cherryl once, and barely escaped with my life.

Angel -- Ah, no, you aren't ominous unless you kill me, and then, of course, I won't
care anyway.  But you're a hot dominatrix. -- Jonisson

Ice -- Yeah, lot of that around.  Highways, stairs, hanging off the roof, you name
it.  Dangerous wherever found. -- Selia Dove

Our congratulations to Angel. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera cast

Golgotha's Blooms -- Welcome back to Sunset. -- Bill the Bard and The Red Blades

Dark at Heart -- You hit the century mark for wins.  Congrats! -- The Red Blades

Sorry we missed last turn! -- Happy New Year!  (unless you're fighting one of my
warriors). -- Bill the Bard

Rezurekt, Angel, Gecko -- We hail your might achievements! -- The Red Blades
