                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It has been an absolute pleasure sitting on the throne of this storied arena for
the past three turns... the view from the top sure is nice!  Unfortunately, this will
be my final column, as I'm off to Talahya to join my brethren from other arenas.
Before I depart however, here is a look under the hood of what made me tick....
     11-12-6-17-10-11-17 AB and started off +4 Ini, Poor/Normal (both mode).  I
learned 2.3 skills/FE (no stat trains) and as this is written my skillset stands at
11/24/27/11/25/14, 17-3 arena record with a 12-12 tourney record (underperformed here
signficantly).  I figured out early on that the LO (20/43) was my favorite weapon,
but only wound up with LO/LO, defense favorite learn with no tactic (bummer... was
hoping for Dodge!).
     Of the 61 skills I've learned, 16 were Rip, 16 Atk and 17 were Def which always
helps!
     The Dark Arena receives my final challenge since my wingman Fritersatafatfarm is
joining me in getting the call on the same turn... so there is no incentive to beat
an arena warrior this turn (outside of Sam Byck but I pity the fool ;-)  <cough
cough>).  If you want a piece of me, I'll be in DM100!!!

Until then... your 3 time Duelmaster,
-Too Big To Fail-

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in SUNSET!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS, but 
NOMADIC TRIBE was just too good to be stopped.  Uncool, GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS.  I mean 
1-2-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  The guys at BLOOD AND SAND like really pulled together to get a 4-1-0 this 
turn, moving up by 7.  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a 
total 109-106-6 you ask?  (Sure)  OMINOUS REIGN's their name, and fighting's their 
game!  MVP award for ONE ARMED BOXER?  OMINOUS REIGN's proud of him after beating 
HELRAZOR and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  HELRAZOR got 
smashed by ONE ARMED BOXER, and lost 19 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop 
just cause he's Number One!  DARK CHAMPION knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged 
by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  TOO BIG TO FAIL stopped 
DARK CHAMPION dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said SUNSET's Duelmaster 
was paying for drinks at Cagliostro's Castle?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  GRIM FANDANGO 
was SUNSET's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are LITERATE LOONS?  GRIM FANDANGO, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can NOMADIC TRIBE's BUL GOBLINHEWER be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  Speaking 
of challenging 26 points above did you hear about TERRE HAUTE of TRIAL & ERROR vs. 
NOMADIC TRIBE's BUL GOBLINHEWER?  (And how was that intro!) What did TERRE HAUTE 
expect, anyway!  Of course BUL GOBLINHEWER won.  Next time stick to people you have a 
chance against, dummy!  I'm not so sure POCA knew all the facts when she challenged 
BLAKSKUL of GRIM FANDANGO.  I saw POCA stumbling and dribbling at Cagliostro's Castle 
last week...  Like, was that some fighting on POCA's part, or what?  And she got 25 
points out of it!  (besides getting in my report)  Poor BLAKSKUL.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  TOO BIG TO FAIL returns from the Dark 
Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his DEVIATION teammates...  Like, who is this guy??? 
FRITERSATAFATFARM gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles SHEWISH GIANT, and returns to 
tell of it!!!  I bet DEVIATION manager is surprised!  I'm always kinda bummed when a 
decent warrior gets killed.  ORWELL, of LITERATE LOONS had a 6-4-0 when he got bumped 
off by TROWSUL THUNDER.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (METARU HEI vs. 
LEVEL OF MALEVOLENCE, that is.) What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd 
be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Blakskul -- You didn't move.  You didn't talk.  You just stood their making me feel
guilty about killing your associate.  Very effective though.  Situation corrected. --
Bloodsong

Deviation and Bloodthirst -- Sam and Grey will be back post tourney if you still
savor a little vengeance. -- Action

Row Dayo Drive -- You and Spigot are getting your own plaques at the Golgotha
clubhouse.  You're like extended family. -- Poca and the Blooms

One Armed Boxer -- One arm, my #@@! -- Edulfo Papa

Trelaine -- It isn't the view one savors, but the odor. -- Sam Byck

Wild -- I was slow out of the gate, but, man, was that some backstretch! -- Too Big
to Fail

Yuedebahl Litha -- Nice challenge... I was doing a fine job avoiding you Bashers
until last turn! -- Fritersatafatfarm

Meiritsu Na -- An unintentional kill, but a kill none-the-less.  I suppose the DM
gods penalized you for the down challenge.  My name should have given you pause...  I
await the bloodfued. -- Level of Malevolence

Idaria -- C'mon... who's your daddy... who is it... you can say it... outloud now...
louder!!! -- Hoosier Daddy

Poca -- You are a frustrating little bugger.... -- Row Dayo Drive

Congrats to Bul Goblinhewer and Borges on your invites! -- Marma Duke

While his numbers were nothing special to look at on paper, he sure was a nasty
little S.O.B. on the arena sands and had some nice bonuses.  Fritersatafatfarm was
12-10-14-15-17-5-11 +3 Rip/Att, skills currently at 30/12/29/9/18/12  Good/Great
(blessed in both).  15-5 in arena play and 16-9 in tourney play...  I could never get
him over the hump for a TV in any of his 3 tourneys.  I thought his favorite weapon
might have been the LO (10/43), but apparently it was the HA (0/6) with VH/VL which I
can't complain about.  He'll be heading off to Talahya, but I'm on the fence about
running him.  Thank you, Friters, for a great arena run... you're were a ton of fun!
-- Marma Duke

Cajun Apocalypse -- manager: The Cajun

     Yep, I figured that out once I saw the finished newsletter.  But thanks for
     making sure I had it right. -- the editor

Stik -- Already know what you're gonna say, man.  So might as well save it.  Look, we
got nothing against you for now.  It's that filthy sick, slobbering mental case that
calls himself Nomad we're after.  So just keep your panties on tight and stand back
in order to give us a clear shot. -- Kano

Oh!  And BTW, while I'm at it, that little tiny-minded crackpot called Deviation is
really beginning to get us PO'd as well.  We got something very special in mind for
all his stroke of luck here in Sunset.

Nomad -- Hmmm...a stupid AB?  That's interesting.  Too stupid to even use a SH?  Were

you that desperate to make yet another Aimer among the growing crowd of Aimers?  For
what purpose?  Could it be you're worried about little ol' Kano Clan trying to take
you down?  Oh, do tell, mister smarty pants. -- Minami Tori

Crixus -- Well fought.  You are a true warrior...and, possibly a future champion. --
Booray

Hroloc the Hun -- We shall face one another again...but, for now, you hold the
upperhand. -- Reduvius

Ninja Barbie -- OUCH!!! You crazy masked freak! -- Hardy

Cajun -- Welcome back to Sunset!  Looking forward to crossing blades with you! --
Stik and G.F.

Nomad -- Nice 5-0, my friend!  And congrats on another graduate!  Don't know what
we're gonna do with all these damned goblins now though... -- Stik

Marmaduke -- Congrats on holding the throne and your guys' invites, they were very
impressive and I have a feeling they'll represent Sunset well in ADM. -- Stik

Sherman -- Hey, you too! -- Stik

Rocksie Rhodes -- Hmm, I thought I was fighting one of Mannequin's warriors there for
a minute... then I woke up in the infirmary. -- Punksure

Bloodsong -- Didn't you read my personal last turn?  I didn't get a swing!  You just
fell over.  Nuts.--Blakskul

Dred -- I felt I coulda fought betta, Howard... -- Like Water

Bartt -- Better luck next time, dude.  Check that, I'd prefer your luck level stay
pretty much where it is. -- Helrazor

Kano -- My only presumption is that I usually win more than I lose, hence my above
.500 record.  Spare me the DA advice, everybody uses it as they see fit for their
goals.  I have no problems running challenging or experimental setups if they have
some redeeming qualities, and have done so often in the past, but there's a limit.
If you wanna run crap, feel free.  Congrats on finally hitting 300 wins, BTW. -- Stik
P.S.  Only 9 aimers last turn, third on the list, happy?  Time to put the conspiracy
theories to bed for a while, okay?

And another 4 veterans graduate!  Congratulations to all of those who have attained
immortality!  - Nomad and the Tribe

Ophelia and all those in Sunset who have been a part in my less-than-stellar career
-- Thanks for the win and the all-important two political points!  I am now off to
the Isle and retirement.  At 17(+1)-17(+2)-10-13(+1)-17(+2)-5-11 Nomad had higher
hopes for me than a 22-27 record.  I keep trying to remind him that after starting 2-
10, I actually have a winning record in my last 37 fights!  But he doesn't seem to be
buying that argument.  But at least I survived long enough to make it out! -- Lord
Protector Bul Goblinhewer

Hope Springs -- Read the above ad.  Anybody can graduate if they stick it out long
enough, and you seem to be off to a fine start when not facing graduating veterns. --
Sasquatch

Elise Isla -- Wow. I think I fell asleep somewhere in the middle of that thing. --
Walli

Welcome back to our own local Cajuns!  I was very happy to see you on the sands
Reduvius, you're welcome to come back for more of those! -- Hroloc

Ninja Barbie -- Okay, the "Honey" ad made me laugh.  But I think calling me "honey"
or "babe" would be a very bad idea. -- Hroloc

Minami Tori -- I do love challenges.  Up challenges even.  In points and experience.
And wins.  I love those as well. -- Batwamba

Like Water -- I was teaching and demonstrating the whole time, but the information
just ran through your mind like water and out the other ear. -- Kallia May

Wow, lots of graduates.  Our congratulations to Too Big to Fail, Bul Goblinhewer,
Borges, and Fritersatafatfarm. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera
P.S.  A fritter would be good about now....

Barbaric Smurf -- I have an idea that wasn't the smartest challenge you could have
made, but that's okay.  I liked the win just fine. -- Kallia May

Walli Weeble -- Good thing I brought a book.  And no, I will NOT loan it to you! --
Elise Isla

Spartacus -- I hate it when a fight turns one-sided against me.  Good work on your
part. -- Bitter Dove

Yodle Layhe Who -- I regret that I was unable to lift you for that dance.  Really,
ballerinas should be smaller and lighter in weight, we who dance with them are good,
but there are limits even to our abilities. -- Jonisson

Varro -- You did that just to make me look bad, didn't you?  Well, you succeeded. --
Trelaine

Deviation -- Congrats on all your accomblishments, good luck in keeping it going. --
Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

DM/LP Too Big To Fail -- Congrats on leaving on top. -- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

Cajun and Cajun's Apocalypse -- Welcome to Sunset and welcome back to the game. --
Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

Jonisson -- I needed a fight like that, Ben's ben giving me That Look for sometime
now. -- Yodle Layhe Who

Kallia May -- I take a huge step forward?  No?  Man!  I don't get to do nuttin! --
Barbaric Smurf

Plague -- Perhaps a different weapon when next we meet. -- The Foiler

Cerryl -- You are four plus inches of slow. -- Speedo Smurf

Hardy -- Not hardly a fair matchup for your first turn, at least you know to avoid
later. -- Ninja Barbie

Batwamba -- Easy wins are how all our wins are silly, it's the losses that are hard.
-- The Foiler
P.S.  So you should congratulate us on all our losses that are so hard on us or
something like that.

All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
