     The mysterious hooded figure was again spotted leaving the Broken Bone Tavern
after having been seated at the bar for a few moments chugging down a few pints of
Grog.  The hood covered any of his facial features making him wholly
indistinguishable as it flowed downward into a long robe-like cloak.  There had been 
much speculation and talks of several wise old magicians long since forgotten, by
most of the townsfolk, were speculated on since he was first seen a few weeks prior.
Nobody who was a regular there seemed to recognize anything about him nor had a clue
as to who it may be, and none of the Tavern's staff seemed to know who he was either.
     An intrepid young warrior, one far more brave then he was wise, decided he had
heard enough speculation and rumor lately.  Many new Guilds had opened recently and
even some that were long closed had returned once again to bid for glory in Sunset's
fabled bloody arena.  "I will get to the bottom of who this shadowy cloaked figure
is," he thought to himself.  He paused a moment at the door before exiting so as not
to arouse this person's suspicions or be noticed, after all Sunset was a dangerous
place, especially late into the night as it was, and there was no telling who he
might be!
     As he exited the Tavern he saw the secretive figure turn the corner and he
quickly ran forth to peek around the building that gave cover of view to anyone in
the alleyway.  As he peered around the corner there was nobody there, not a soul in
sight anywhere, and no place open that he could have escaped into.  All the shops
that backed up onto the alleyway had long since shut their doors for the night, and
certainly all the shop owners had either gone home or stopped into the Broken Bone to
hear the town's warriors brag of their glorious battle tales.  There was another road
that the alley ran into, containing a few Guildhouses and many of the town's various
armories, but it was at least three or four hundred yards away.
     "This is NOT possible, " he spoke out loud in a hushed tone to himself, "not
even if he had sprinted could he have evaded my surveilance!"
     Though there were no torches that burned to light the alley, the moon was bright
high above, and illuminated every roadway and corner in town, so the warrior chose to
walk down the alley to the road ahead to see if he could catch a glimpse of the
mystery man.  He strode cautiously along the cobblestones nonetheless, he would be
taking no chances with his life tonight.  As he neared the road ahead he paused
briefly to listen for the sound of the man's footsteps.  He thought to himself that
it would be perhaps wise to feign a drunken stupor and stumble onto the long main
road so he could appear confused as he peered down both directions.  Just in case the
man had any sense that he was being followed.  In his head he hatched a plan on what
to say, or how to react, if indeed he was confronted by the mysterious figure should
he be lying in wait for him.  "A warrior having had too much to drink could easily
fake being lost should I be confronted and accused of spying.  After all I have, on a
few occasions, truly drunk so much that I had no idea of where I was before," he
thought to himself.  Or at least that is what he had hoped. Truth be told he did not
want confrontation, he was merely curious, as were all the others in town, as to the
identity of the hooded stranger and perhaps an answer as to why he seemed to be so
secretive.  And why it was that he was never seen, nor interacting, with anyone else
in town save for the bartender.  His behavior just seemed so bizarre if not
suspicious in nature.
     Suddenly from behind a hand grasped his shoulder!  Spinning around, in the same
motion, he unsheathed his dagger to face whomever it was that dare confront him this
late at night.  His senses were keen and his adrenaline rushed as his eyes fixed on
their target!

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So this is what the top looks like?  Took me a lil while to get here.  As the
only remaining original member of Cajun Apocalypse, it is an honor to be the
Duelmaster of Sunset.  Speaking of original members, my brother-in-arms Bix just met
his demise last turn.  Apparently, he died of an infected would.  After watching the
fight, that is the only thing it could be...  He took one blow to the arm, went down,
and never returned.  May he rest well forever.  As for you, Nannerpuss, may you never
become Duelmaster...  I'd rather avoid you and not ever give you a shot rather than
Bloodfeud you.  I can only hope you either die of food poisoning or very very
violently in the arena.  Long live Cajun Apocalypse!

                   Respectfully,

                        Hardy

P.S.  In case no one has realised it yet, I'm not your typical total parry!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SUNSET?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, ALL JACKED UP II, since 
CAJUN APOCALYPSE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep 
the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for ALL JACKED UP II, 
whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 7 into 8th.  Ha!  THE BLUES turned their 4-1-0 
turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BRANDON win a 
fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, THAK beat TEXAS FLOOD and TEXAS FLOOD 
lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  WHEELBARROW challenged SUNSET's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
WHEELBARROW takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where 
do they get this stuff?  From SUNSET's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  KANO 
CLAN, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care 
to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was NOMADIC TRIBE.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, JACK AND COKE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to SPOONFUL of 
THE BLUES for challenging up by 18 to PHILLIPS HEAD.  SPOONFUL won to get 104 points 
of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SUNSET's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the SUNSET arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
