                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Call me the swammy, I guess!  I fought a basher (maybe not the one I predicted,
but hey, details!) and won, and here I am, all immortal and whatnot!  This is
fantastic.  I bet I could do anything I wanted to now, wouldn't get hurt or anything!
Walk on fire!  Take a kick to the nards from the Venomous Concubine!  No more fearing
those damned scimitar crits to the face!  Woe to my last opponent!!  I'm invincible!
Indestructable!  I bet I could--OUCH!!!  #$@&*&*!!!!  DAMN this parchment they gave
me!  Freaking paper cuts are KILLIN' ME!!  (sucking blood off finger with concerned/
wounded look on face)
     Okay... so maybe not technically, completely indestructable YET... I guess.
There is the matter of one more little itty bitty duel to take care of.  No DA
fights, I'm challenging Whirled Peace with my faves in use.  Hopefully he'll get off
the couch over at his guildhouse, set down the bag of chips and pick up some steel
this turn.  Let's go, man, I've got a loss to avenge!
     Oh yeah, all my dirty little secrets, you wanna know'em, right?  I aim to
please, when not aiming for the vitals, ha!!  I am a 14(+1)-15(+2)-8-17-17-5-11 PL.
I am +3 init, +1 in riposte, attack (ambi), and defense.  The Old Man says my early
ST/CN bumps did me a world of good, getting me bumps in damage doing (to good),
damage taking, and carry.  He was all cocky thinking he had my favorite weapon pegged
as the longsword, which many of you can attest that I was quite awesome with.   But,
turns out my faves are SS, HI/LO, no tactics, and I like learning riposte.  I'm
leaving with adv exps in init, attack, and parry, experts in riposte and defense.
I'm the second plunger to graduate from Grim Fandango, following my predecessor,
Graveyard Tan.  I'm #25 overall from this team, Stik thinks.  He's happy 'cause now
he just has LU and PR left to get out for his second round-robin off this team.
Whatever, I'm just glad to still be alive and livin' the High Life!!  Hey, BIIIG
PARTY tonight at our place, the Broken Bone Tavern of course, after the fights to
send me off in style, everyone's invited!  It's been an honor and a pleasure, Sunset!
Seeya!!

Lord Protector Helrazor
Duelmaster of Sunset

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to GRIM FANDANGO, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE RED BLADES stable.  For every winner 
there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at THE BLUES, who went down 
to 7th from 11th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 5-0-0 outing, TOOL SHED has 
advanced 9 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for BRUNO SQUALL, who 
flew up 39 points in the rankings after mashing TISTHESEASON2BLETHAL like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  COLD SHOT was subdued by PIETROS and drops 14 points.  In front of all the 
crowds, SLEDGEHEAD took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at 
that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SUNSET arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid OMINOUS REIGN, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does SUNSET really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause THE RED BLADES beats feet every time OMINOUS REIGN smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this BRUNO SQUALL you ask, with 127 points and a 
19-19-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Well, it looks like MIME BOGGLING 
wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 28 points. 
No guts, no glory.  Some advice to MIME BOGGLING.  Please don't challenge up 28 
points to fight a 15-13-0 fighter like, say MY SWORD AND SAVIOR.  (Okay, so it may be 
a little late).  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, CRIXUS went after 
GITCHIGOOMIE, who was higher by 25 points.  Well, when the dust settled, CRIXUS 
defeated GITCHIGOOMIE.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This week 8-11-1 AUNT TILLA-THE NUN was sent to the Dark 
Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of this.  
I have no doubt that THE RED BLADES will be celebrating long and loud their warrior 
BRUNO SQUALL's slaying of TISTHESEASON2BLETHAL on the sands.  Congrats to JACK AND 
COKE for revenging the death of its teammate (but more importantly, feeding INSPIRE a 
bit of dirt).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the 
arena with you and see what happens.   
     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?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Lord Protector. -- A grumbling Sledgehead

Tistheseasontobelethal -- Umm ouch. -- Grass Seed

Scapegoat -- Well that was fun, wasn't it? -- Wheelbarrow

All -- Five out of the six guys I ran in the tournament are dead.  Three in one turn.

Come on, Halloween!

Ominous Rein -- Nice point gain.  Inspire.  Looks like I'm up. -- Jack and Coke

Bruno Squall -- I figured it would be you coming after me... nice fight.  I guess
punching you in the Broadsword (not that broadsword, you dirty minded SOB) wasn't
such a good idea. -- Bulous

Blood and Sand -- Uh, don't blame me, it was the infirmary!  I guess I better find my
plate armor now.  Apologies on the death, hope you get a good recruit. -- Dust

Maple -- Well, that's about 0-a lot against you.  Thanks for not killing me at least.
-- Manute the Jr.

All Jacked up -- Don't really know what to say, 2 hits and your guy croaks?  Well,
for what it's worth, apologies for the kill. -- Questiona

Spoonful -- Make me desperate at your peril!  Nice matchup, thought you had me there
at first. -- Fish

Sunset -- Why do all you guys keep dying on us?  I can't imagine what would happen if
I was TRYING to kill people here.  Evidently my team is pretty effective at it
whether or not I want them to be. -- F.E. Bowl

Sledgehead -- So close.  There's always that one second where the tough guys have to
stop to take a breath.... -- LP/DM Helrazor

Miter Box -- Didn't really expect to take that one, but hey it's happened before!
Good to see you back in action. -- Raze

Kerza -- It took a while but I got the job done.  Wins are nice. -- Stiletto

Mime Boggling -- Don't take it too hard, I wear everybody out! -- Obstakul

Edge -- Not what I had in mind, there.  I was thinking more along the lines of, I hit
you, you fall down, that kind of thing.... -- Evnmor Blak

Lavern -- My name IS pretty cool, but hey you don't have to knock the boys in the
stable!  We're still trying to figure out your ah, interesting naming conventions! --
Stiletto

Ghost of Rippa -- You hit me twice.  I was impressed.  You have to admit you had that
one coming. -- Inspire

Crixus -- Ouch, I guess your teaching days are over. -- Bell

Manute Jin -- Nothing personal, but your kind is fairly annoying. -- Maple

Emmor Blak -- You've got balls, brother! -- Edge

Ozadanwin -- Sooo pretty, he he he. -- Psychomatic

Bulous -- You may hear from a team mate while the BF challenges are still out there
to see if they can pull off a win against you.  Good luck in the Challengers. --
Bruno

Dagan -- Some days more blood with the sand than others. -- Lenny

Jacks -- Sorry about Jack in the Box.  But what do you expect?  "Boo!  Here's my big
melon head!"  Reflex kicked in.  Mace applied to problem.  Tough turn for you guys.
Good luck with the BFs. -- Shirley

Wambasu -- You could be related to the Pooles.  You might have chosen their preferred
style with some success. -- Lavern

Tank Ewe -- One hit by ol' Wambasu?  Sure that isn't "Spank" Ewe? -- Lavern Temple

Slayer of Nazguls -- Let me be the first....  Glad I'm not a Nazgul. -- Rita Poole

Helrazor -- Congrats, LP, on your bid! -- The Red Blades
