                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Why do they have to call it lucky? 
Was it luck that I can take a hit or two?
Was it luck that allowed me to parry and dodge so many attacks?
Was it luck that allowed me to take out Justin with one blow?
Was it luck that made Justin actually USE that silly shield the commission told him
was his favorite?

No.  It was skill.  And physicals.

     Luck would have been facing a Kano.  Or maybe one of Ben's guys, if he had
anyone up here.  I had to face a graduating Lord Protector.  How is that luck?  Okay,
so maybe there was a little luck.  And a little armor.  But still, where do those
newsletter writers get off saying I got lucky?  Who decides which fights are lucky
and which aren't?  Sometimes your weapon breaks and sometimes it doesn't.  I just
want to get lucky for a couple more fights. That  should be enough.

Torino,
Proud Tribeswoman and Duelmaster of Sunset

                                      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...  Uncool, BEN & JERRY'S.  I mean 
0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  MVP award for FIONA?  MAIDENS OF MALICE's proud of her after beating 
TRAEVENMORE and getting 29 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SOCRATES OF 
SHRED got smashed by MAME HOSHIRO, and lost 17 points!  And I was just getting used 
to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome JACK B. QUICK.  Aren't ALL 
JACKED UP II proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  BLOOD AND SAND was SUNSET's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  I don't know what THE CEREAL KILLERS' been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from BLOOD AND SAND, that's fer sher.  
Can OMINOUS REIGN's BELL be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but 
is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  It was kind of sad, seeing old TRAEVENMORE stumbling around the arena, 
before FIONA finished him off.  Oh well!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families 
would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Djorgun -- You lived by the sword and died by the sword.  A good death, a warrior's
death.  We salute you -- Socrates of Shred and D.R.I.

Torino -- What do you know, the small shield DOES suck as a weapon.  I would have had
a better outcome if I had used a pillow fort weapon. -- Justin Credible

Grid Iron -- Welcome to Sunset, the Arena of Death, Jewel of the Delarquan
Federation!  Keep your blades sharp and make good friends with the infirmary nurses,
it pays!  Drinks on us tonight post-fights at the team-owned watering hole, the
Broken Bone Tavern! -- Grim Fandango

Paceball 2 -- I'll take'em wherever I can get'em... -- Ruinous

Aria -- I don't have anything against maidens, mind you, even ones with malicious
intent.  Just business. -- Everlast

Hijack -- I'm not always the easiest target.  Just mostly.  But not all the time...
-- Blakmoon

Monterey Jack -- You are awful damned speedy with that thing.  Fight seems to be over
before we know it's started, and then we're in the infirmary with a limb missing!
Revolting.  One last shot at it this cycle. -- Grim Fandango

DM Turino -- Congrats on the throne! -- G.F.

     Does this belong here somewhere?

"made a machine that could cut down wheat more efficiently, which he called the
Mechanical Reaper."

DM Torino -- Congrats on the throne, buddy, we will have to see about getting up
there to remove you... forcibly if need be... I think it will need be. -- Ben's
Bazaar

The Cereal Killers -- Top current and career, very nice. -- Ben's Bazaar

     A manager name would be nice, too?

Bonham -- Damn... that did not go as planned... back to the old blue prints. -- Build
a Bard, building a better world on the bloody corpses of ABs one AB at a time at a
time... obviously I will be back to finish the job with you

Juke -- I jived when I should have been juked like you, oh well.  I shall be back to
visit you again. -- Good Idea Fairy, the term "good" is still being evaluated

Jack Sabbath -- You should have killed me, now I have to go fight in a dark and
mysterious place and it scares me....  Pray for me. -- Nun Chuck

Total -- You funny, toto was a dog, huhhuuhhuu, you funny, here, poochie poochie
poochie, huhhuuhhuu, I like dogs, they nice, you not nice, you not a good dog, now
Chuck sad. :'-( -- Numb Chuck

Hendrix -- Why did you have to go and do that fer?  Huh?  What did Sam-Mariah do to
you?  Nothing, she invited you over for tea, offered you a couple lumps for your tea,
and you whack her.  Not nice, not nice at all. -- Gentleben speaking for the late
Sam-Mariah Samurai

A big ole welcome back to Dark at Heart and a big ole welcome to Sunset to The Grid
Iron.  Hope you both are in it for the log haul. -- Gentleben, Mgr Ben's Bazaar

     I probably should have changed that, but I liked the image of a bunch of
     gladiators competing in hauling lots.  Sorry, Ben.
