                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     WWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLL, LOOKEE HEEYAH!!  Look who finally made
it to the top of the scrap heap!!
     For a while there, quite a long while actually, it was always a bridesmaid,
never a plate-clad bride for the Big Little Basher that Could!  But I suppose if you
can just stay alive long enough, the odds have gotta come into play at some point.
I've seen a lot of good warriors and a lot of puds sit up here and graduate before
me, and I've seen some die trying, too.  The last Duelmaster the Old Man had, my
teammate Mersilus, was one of them.  It's good to be the King at last, if only for a
day.  If one of you, ANY of you useless dogs, could teach me just a thing or two, I
could get my notice from the Greywand chick and be off like a prom dress.  Gods know
I've taught all of you enough tricks...  "This is how you take a scimmy crit to the
face!  This is how you fall over carefully in plate armor!  This is how you attempt
to parry (and fail) with your warhammer!"   And on and on....  Enough already, I want
outta here!  The Old Man was almost desperate enough to send me to tourney again,
that woulda been a sight, I tell you!  I did pretty well last time I went, surprised
him, I did, but I don't expect the results would be the same in Challengers this time
around.  So, a couple of the whelp teammates went instead.  Luck to'em, try not to
come home in a body bag, boys!  (Raises ale, quaffs and belches loudly.)
     So, who to fight?  Beats me, honestly.  At this point, one's the same as the
next.  Guess I'd rather fight a verteran, those little young whippersnappers will
have their day soon enough.  Let the old dogs duke it out.  In any case, I actually
didn't challenge anyone, so we'll see who walks out to say hello to my little friend,
Mr. Maul!!  Worst of luck, to you!  Hopefully it'll be as good a slugfest as I just
had with Silver Haze, hats off to you son.
     All right, be on about yer business, but one last thing.  All this bitchin' and
whinin' about down challenges and upchallenges and unfair bloodfeuds, seriously?!???
Knock, knock, you're fightin' in a DELARQ arena here.  Expect the challenges to come
from anywhere, set your kill desires accordingly, and be ready to reap what you sow.
That is all.  See you at the Double B post-fights!!

Blakskul
Duelmaster of Sunset

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in SUNSET since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  NOMADIC TRIBE were 
a bunch of dogs after 420 B.C. got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  THE 
RED BLADES bit the big one as they could not win.  They dropped from 8th down to 
19th!  Are you guy giving lessons or what?  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your 
elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  DARK OVERLORDS is now ranked 5th 
with a 3-2-0 turn.  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant. 
I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well GREDAN moved up 8, to 9th.  What's with FEYTALONY?  
She actually beat DEVIATION's MY SWORD AND SAVIOR, and walked away with 21 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at DEVIATION.  MY SWORD AND SAVIOR lost 18 
points to FEYTALONY.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MY SWORD AND SAVIOR will 
provide more easy wins...  THE BLUES' hatred of GRIM FANDANGO surfaced again as RED 
HOUSE challenged SUNSET's top dog.  RED HOUSE was reminded on the sands why BLAKSKUL 
is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DEVIATION!  
In my day, no team with a 99-74-6 would scare me off!  What's the problem, KANO CLAN? 
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, SMURF LIGHTNING!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  SORROW of DARK AT HEART 
knows how to pick 'em.  She challenged SMURF LIGHTNING of BEN'S BAZAAR who is up by 
19.  Now was this a wise move?  SORROW perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she 
was beat by SMURF LIGHTNING and ended up with 8 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  SQUIGGY CROW of THE RED BLADES didn't know when to quit.  When 
you've got a 4-5-1, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Yeah, yeah, CC RIDER killed 
HASH BROWNIE, who was "too young to die."  Well, it was a fighter, and that's what 
you have to face.  HIPPY LOVE was plum wore out after HARDY pounded 'im silly in a 
Bloodfeud.  COSMIC FREAK OUT'll have to get a little better before going after HARDY 
again!  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

DM Zoldivar -- Is it just me or is it a revolving striker door up there?  In any
case, congrats on the throne.  Watch out. -- Blakskul

Batwamba -- Sah-wing, Batta!  Many have against me, not all win.  Just most, lately.
-- Blakskul
P.S.  You couldn't reciprocate on the skillage??

Colonel Angus -- Well, that was a throw down.  Just wishing I'd come out with the W!
-- Murgatroyd

Nomad -- Congrats, my friend, on hitting 400 wins and on current top team!  Drinks
are indeed on ME tonight at the double B! -- Stik

The Bowls -- Welcome to Sunset!  Blades up! -- Stik and Grim Fandango

Well... 1-2, and O'soup decides to beat the Dark Arena.  Fish challenges Inspire, and
loses!  (Not that that was unexpected.)  Inspire, have the decency to train him a
little bit, that's the only reason I challenged you!  Next turn will feature the
debut of two new warriors, soon to be pluses in the win column for some fortunate
stable that matches up with them.  O'soup, sorry, old chap, I'm pretty sure as the
other managers read this we will be toasting your short but semi-glorious career at
the tavern.  You'll be fighting in your underwear with a twig for a weapon this turn.
Good luck!  Hail Sunset! -- Froot E. Bowl

Quicksilver -- I thought the Dark Arena was supposed to be tough!  F.E. Bowl promises
me next time I'll be fighting with a handicap. -- O'soup

Inspire -- I think you were just toying with me, letting me swing a little bit before
you finished me off.  Nice fight! -- Fish

Crescens -- I guess I actually have to hit you more than once to have a chance to
win.  I plan to learn a few things at the tourney and hopefully next time it'll go a
little different!  (Which by saying this has cursed me to lose quickly in the
tourney.) -- Froot

Bruno Squall -- Fah lah lah lah lahhhhhh, lah lahhhh lahhhh lahhhhh. --
Tistheseason2blethal

Reduvius -- Well done.  I see a rematch in our future! -- Hoosier Daddy

Rhaskos -- My sword... your savior.... -- My Sword and Savior

Dragon Asp -- Looks like you got a little snake bitten at the end of that fight!  A
nail biter for a few minutes though! -- Dirtywork Scapegoat

All -- Good luck in the upcoming mailer tourney! -- Marma Duke

All -- Nomad claimed, "Actually you down-challenged us before we ever considered
doing so."  The argument that, 'I believe it, so it must be true,' is a mental
illness of such substantial proportion requiring advanced psychoanalytical
evaluation.  An inflated self-righteous imagination (as he patently demonstrates)
well within the borders of fantasyland easily qualifies him for the definition of
idiot.  I wish him good luck in his quest to "dig up the fight." -- Kano

All -- That dope from THE BLUES, Buri snot, or whoever he is, would be best advised
to learn the definition of a down-challenge before slinging his dung around here.
Hate to see a naive youngster like him get his fingers scorched. -- Kano

Gentleben -- What leads you to believe that everything I say is just meaningless
"ramble?" -- Kano

All -- Hope you take note of how much that Nomad-freak is just a filthy down-
challenger.  Is that any indication to you of his weakness and vulnerability?  He's
nothing but insignificant low-life skum. -- Kano

Kano $#!+ -- You want the truth?  You can't handle the truth! -- Gentleben
P.S.  You're a dweeb and that is the truth!

DM Blakskul -- Congrats on the throne now get your non skilled butt off of it... and
clean up before you go. -- Ben's Bazaar

Nomad -- Current top team?  Nice work. -- Gentleben

D.A. Rejects -- Welcome back to the land of misfit gladiators better well known as
Sunset. -- Ben's Bazaar

Panama Red -- Next time we meet you will leave as Panama Dead! -- Pain Gwen

Tao Sin -- I tried to drive the sin from your poor tortured soul but I don't think I
got it all. -- Aunt Tilla--The Nun

Bell -- Now wasn't that a pleasant sound (ding ding). -- Smurf Lightning

Dirtywork Scapegoat -- Don't be bringing your dirty laundry around here!  We have
enough to be ashamed of all on our own. -- Dragon Asp

All -- I found this Troll wearing a yellow reflective vest, a hard hat and carrying
this small hand held stop sign... he looked a little lost so I put him to work. --
Gentleben

Moshi Haru -- Oh, did I do that nasty down-challenge thing to you again?  I would
think you would want to "pick and choose" other fights-- this one actually did please
Nomad.  Oh yes, no remorse for acting like a good Delarquan on this one.  Did you
avoid me this turn?  Or just sit out? -- Walli Weeble, Kano Crusher

Buri -- You just became one of my favorite managers!  On the turn when Kano claims he
doesn't down-challenge you catch him in one!  Nice timing.  You'd think he would
consider such things when planning his challenges and skipped turns. -- Nomad

Red House -- Sometimes you just get caught with the wrong strategy.  Other times you
(I?) begin to wonder if there is such a thing as the right strategy.  Ouch. --
Batwamba

Slim -- Well, I knew I was up much too high in the rankings, so I'm almost tempted to
thank you for dropping me like a rock.  Almost.  Not quite.  It hurt a bit too much
for a true thank-you.  Perhaps a silver lining is the way to look at it.  There have
to be some Kano somewhere around here that I can challenge. -- Kadoka

Bashers -- One-seven, boys and girls, I had the only win??  Let's step it up this
turn! -- DM Blakskul

Hardy -- Nice challenge, I didn't see that coming.  Next time I'll be ready. --
Helrazor

Man-o'-war -- A good scrum, but you couldn't teach me a damn thing, really?  Right
before tourney!  Sheesh!! -- Raze

Rutuba -- Many thanks for the help out, my self-esteem was a little low! -- Fade to
Blak

Wyatt Earp -- Those are WOMEN'S UNDERPANTS, WYATT!!  Sorry, I have no idea what that
means, but Stik said to say it, something about a Weird Science movie reference,
beats me.... -- Murgatroyd

Walli W. -- Nice win, the vengeance continues.  Blades up! -- Grim Fandango

All -- Our ads for last turn arrived a bit late apparently, so I guess they'll show
up this turn too.  Word to your Mutha. -- Grim Fandango
