                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hey!  The Boss said I could take a little time off from my training to write a
column.  Perhaps with just one fight left he isn't as worried about it anymore?
Rumor has it that I will be retiring, but since I have exceeded expectations so far
in my career, why not surprise in this way as well?
     But the surest proof that I will retire comes from the fact that Nomad said I
could "reveal all" in my column.  Well, not all, really.  The loin cloth will remain
in place for my Lord Protector/Duelmaster official portrait, but all the intimate
numbers and such.  So here I am, speed basher extraordinaire: 11(+1)-10-10-17-9-17-
11.  59 skills and 1 stat train in 27 FE--in addition to my 20 arena fights, I went
5-3 and 3-3 in two tournament appearances.  That 5-3 in rookies really surprised
Nomad, I think.  Master in decise, Advanced experts in Init and Attack (one attack
skill short, come on, let me get it in my last fight!) and an expert in riposte.  I
only used one weapon in my career--the only one I was suited to: the Quarterstaff.
Honestly, I thought it might be my favorite.  I mean, it IS my favorite, if you ask
me.  And who better to determine my favorite weapon than me?  But according to the
commission I like the mace.  I might use it in this last fight if I have the
misfortune of facing anyone in armor.  A mace, huh? Clunky thing.
     I have managed my nice record primarily be avoiding defensives.  Anyone who
could parry and wore a bit of armor was almost guaranteed a win against me.  Not
enough endurance and I don't hit overly hard.  But I avoided most of those and kept
challenging other offensives.  It worked.  15 times, at least.  Further proof that it
isn't just how good you are, but who you fight.  Why, even Mimes could win a few
fights if they got to face an embezzling scribe every turn.  Actually, I have been
avoiding mimes also.  But now I am off to the Isle of the Eye to enjoy the reward for
well-planned challenges and avoids.  Enjoy the sands and the post-fight brew and the
Broken Bone Sunset!

Lord Protector Donegal,
Duelmaster of Sunset

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SUNSET?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  DEVIATION turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 
3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  Now let's all watch GRIM FANDANGO's heads swell from their 4-0-0 this 
turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see WHIRLED PEACE win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SEVN HELLS beat SARAH and SARAH lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  TEXAS 
FLOOD challenged SUNSET's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, SUNSET may be getting bland, as DONEGAL stays top dog in the city.  
I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, SUNSET?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  KANO CLAN was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like NOMADIC TRIBE avoided them the most this turn.  
What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  HAMILCAR was challenged more 
times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  
Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, CHOCOLATE THERAPY challenged up 28 
to take on MIME BOGGLING of BEN'S BAZAAR.  My sides still hurt from laughing about 
MIME BOGGLING losing and giving CHOCOLATE THERAPY 12 points of recognition.  Ha ha ha 
ha!!  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but JACK AND COKE has 
challenged up by 33 in an attempt against BEASTLY SMURF.  Not that I'm surprised or 
anything, but JACK AND COKE was dispatched by BEASTLY SMURF, leaving the latter lower 
for recognition points.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  JACK AND COKE, a 
glorious 18-18-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad ALL JACKED UP II.  I can't 
say as I'm proud to find out that BEN'S BAZAAR's BEASTLY SMURF  has killed JACK AND 
COKE from ALL JACKED UP II.  I can say I wish ALL JACKED UP II good luck in their 
bloodfeud.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     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!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

All -- 3 sitting out til after the tourney.  Good luck and hope to see some of you
attend. --York

phillips Head -- Can I have those back?  Please? -- Thak

Well well, a whopping 26 teams last cycle!  Welcome back to everybody, even if you
ARE just timing for the Face! -- Stik

Build a Bard -- *I* say it was a strategy input error, the commission says it was how
my challenge strat was filled out.  In any case, not the best turnout for me.  Here's
hoping I survive the FtF and we can have a rematch real soon! -- Blakmoon

Ahmad Shah Massoud -- Pretty gutsy challenge, even if the style matchup was in your
favor.  Watch out, now... -- Sevn Hells

Hijack -- Should've had you there. -- Ruinous

Soulstice

Rivet -- Youch. -- Chok

DM/LP Donegal -- Congrats on your defense of the throne and your invite!!  Well
played, Sir! -- Grim Fandango

Mime Boggling and Ben -- We're pretty sure the amount of grouching / whining /

complaining you do about not getting a shot at the throne is directly inversely
proportionate to the actual number of attempts you wind up with....just sayin'... --
Grim Fandango

Best of luck to all Sunsetters at the summer Face tourney.  We are sending three to
hopefully survive and come back with some skillage in tow! -- Grim Fandango

LP/DM Donegal -- I am hunting you down, little puppet. -- Mime Boggling
P.S.  Here's hoping you gave me a shot on your last turn....fare well and good luck!

Real Beer -- Instead of just timing a guy or two how about fighting the non-tourney
babies....just a thought.  Good luck to Green King in the tourney. -- Ben's Bazaar

The Hatchetmen -- I hope with Victor taking his final victory lap....or was it lap
dance....or was it a dirt nap...what ever, with Victor going to the DA we hope you
are going to open up a big ol' can of whoop ass in Sunset. -- Ben's Bazaar

Dekie -- Emezzling Scribe?  HAHAHAHAHAHA..ummm... sorry you lost such a fine
warrior... <snicker snicker...hahahahahahah>  I'm sure he will be sorely missed at
least until you get to the bar tonight.  Hope you got a better replacement. --
Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

Deviation and Doc Legrand's Lab II -- I hope you're staying for a while, we need more
business.  Pull up a shield and stay a while. -- Ben's Bazaar

Brackus -- You are lucky I like you, otherwise you would be in a pine box feeding the
worms.  Avoid me in the future. -- Mime Boggling

Sarah -- Just how I planned it.  Fairly sure we will be seeing each other again. --
Bishop

Kilmoar -- Damn!  Missed it by this much <>. -- Centaurian

Blakmoon -- HA, I say...HA. -- Build a Bard

Dirtywork Scapegoat -- That was a fine fine fight, not sure I would win that a second
time so I will take it. -- Beastly Smurf

Centaurian -- You just feel sad because you lost. -- Sarah

Donegal -- Congrats on your invite!

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $145.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI--please make your reservation by 
December 15 before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and 
people have been unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the 
tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all 
looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
