Deep thoughts by Jack Handy:
     I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not our children's
children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Look at that.  The best fighting style in the game is atop this arena.  The
Parry Striker!  Of course my opinion is probably biased but the statement is true
nonetheless.  I mean we can parry AND strike!  Who else can do that?  ABs?  Harrumph.
They're nothing but fancy pants nancy boys that dance around in their shorts,
flailing their arms about like crazed spider monkeys.  LUs?  Nah, they think they are
too skilled and good to do anything that might resemble work, like parrying a blow.
A LU is like that boss of yours that tries to tell you how to do your job, but they
have never done your job.  A battle axe to the head will shut both up.  SLs, STs,
BAs?  These guys are completely one dimensional.  The Tim Tebows of the Gladitorial
world.  All they can do is swing a weapon.  Swing one back at them and they soil
their knickers.  TPs?  Hahahaha.  This isn't so much a fighting style as it is a
lifestyle.  Fat, slow, and stupid.  Binge and purge is all these guys know.  This is
where the "special" warriors are sent so they can be themselves.  WOSs?  These guys
I kind of like.  They can almost do what I do, but they tend to have too much junk in
their trunk to move like me.  You know what the elite managers always say, "Too bad I
didn't make that warrior a PS instead of WOS.  What was I thinking?"  PLs and PRs?
These little buggers try hard, don't they?  Too bad they just don't have what it
takes.  It's like being a cubs fan.  You hope and pray for them to do well, but deep
down you know they're gonna blow it.  "Maybe next Fight," is their mantra.  As you
can see, the parry striker is the only complete warrior in these games.  We are what
all you other warriors strive to be.  Good thing they hand out participation ribbons
in Sunset.  That way the rest of you can feel like you accomplished something.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for SUNSET.  Like, THE CEREAL KILLERS had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by PACE INVADERS!  Way to go PACE 
INVADERS!  Uncool, KANO CLAN.  I mean 0-2-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to 
fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, BEN'S BAZAAR!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 6th!  MVP award for 
WALTER PAYTON?  THE GRID IRON's proud of him after beating BUILD A BARD and getting 
18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  THEOKOLES got smashed by BRUTALFUL, and 
lost 13 points!  Like PACE INVADERS' PACE VENTURA is sweating since it got challenged 
by Duelmaster SOCRATES OF SHRED!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's 
habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome PACE VENTURA.  Aren't PACE INVADERS proud.  (Oh, 
my.) Who was the wiseguy that said SUNSET's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at 
Wildlife Unlimited?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of D.R.I. must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know 
something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE CEREAL KILLERS?  
D.R.I., an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is -10 ATTACK popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all 
of SUNSET!  He's got a 0-18-0, is that good?  Speaking of challenging 40 points above 
did you hear about GANNICUS of BLOOD AND SAND vs. PACE INVADERS' UNODOS PACE?  (And 
how was that intro!) Do you think GANNICUS knew something before he challenged UNODOS 
PACE?  He got a win and 38 points.  What will the guy do next?  People were asking me 
did IOVIS REALLY challenge JUKE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded 
good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but JUKE wants me to write about 
it since he was defeated by IOVIS.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All SUNSET ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  GANNICUS of BLOOD AND SAND wasn't planning on killing UNODOS 
PACE, I bet.  Now he has to worry about being Bloodfeuded, and getting put on 
lists...  Didja see that awesome fight where GANNICUS of BLOOD AND SAND wiped out 
UNODOS PACE?  Who'da thought GANNICUS had it in him?  AJAX bloodfeuded (is that a 
word?) BERIOS BURNING for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth 
it?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write! 
(Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

DM Socrates -- Please don't shred the throne, it's nice.  Others need to use it too.
Congrats on being there and all! -- Grim Fandango

LP Joe Mama -- Congrats on making the Great Escape!  Nice to see your reveal online,
hopefully your manager publishes here as well.  You were quite a formidable TP!  Best
of luck in ADM! -- Grim Fandango

Choir of Angels and Amber -- Welcome, welcome, to the sands of Sunset, Jewel of the
Delarquan Federation!  May your stays be long, beer stained and blood soaked!  First
round's on us tonight post-fights at the Broken Bone Tavern!  Thundercat Closet good
to see you back too! -- Grim Fandango

Vanguard -- Sorry this is late, but it is out-freaking-STANDING to see you back on
the sands at long last!  I remember you from the very first turns of our glorious
arena!  It is great to have one of the original cornerstone teams back in action!  I
hope you stay active, catch up with today's game, and find as much fun in it as you
once did!  Blades up!! -- Stik and Grim Fandango

Well, it's good to finally see a couple teams coming back to the pack a bit and those
3-turn records not going so insanely well for some!  I am hoping a decent crop of new
recruits will help my stable out a bit, but it is downright dangerous around here
these days, never know who's waiting to kill you!  Right, Nomad? ;) -- Stik

Smithwick -- I know, tourney training target on my back... -- Blakmoon, still
plugging away

Feario -- I keep thinking this whole business is going to get better for me, and it
keeps not happening.  Maybe that last train will help me out. -- Montreux

Ben -- Oooh, I got two off you!  Heh! -- Stik

Please welcome the lastest Fandango, Azu Laydying, to the sands.  If I'm gonna get
guys killed in the tournies constantly, at least the RUGs are kind enough to give me
decent replacements! -- Stik
