                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Only one turn left to howl at the moon....  It is I, Ilsa She-Wolf, Duelmaster
of the fair city of Solven.  Hail great warriors of the best arena in all Alastari.
Looks like this is the last Duelmaster's column I get to write.  As you may have
noticed, the Commission saw fit last turn to invite me to fight in the Advanced
games.  And while it is a worthy invite, Kellumbo tells me that my future is lying on
the beach with Kangaroo Kate and Turkey Joe in retirement.  I guess this makes it my
farewell fight this turn.
     Terminator gets the nod again this turn.  We'll see if he is chicken again this
turn like he was last turn.  Don't worry there, Terminator, we've got a bead on you.
I expect a long losing streak in you future, coming very soon.  But hey, you're not
the brightest to figure that out, are you?
     In parting, I would just like to say thank you to all the managers and warriors
who make up this fine arena.  Chaos Boys, Al Gore, Master Tazo, Leeta (you still run
The Zoo, don't you?), Mr. Freeze, Chinese Connection, and yes, even you Judge.
You're all top notch in my book.  Well, except you Judge, but you're still up there
towards the top...well, errrr, somewhere in the middle...er...would you believe
you're in the book?  Ah well, thanks for a great year, Solven.  Farewell.

-- Ilsa She-Woooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllfffffffffffffff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SOLVEN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Uncool, WHITE WOLF.  I 
mean 1-4-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  THE ZOO like really fought hard to move up to 6th from 12th.  Way to go!  
What was the name of that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 151-119-10 you 
ask?  (Sure)  CONSPIRACY INC.'s their name, and fighting's their game!  I talked to 
MEGA CHAOS' manager before the fights.  He said, "We're gonna do good."  And look at 
this:  5-0-0!  Psychic, or what!  MVP award for SURE SHOT?  MEGA CHAOS' proud of him 
after beating TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets! 
JER BER's match with THE LOTUS cost him a loss of 14 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think ILSA SHE-WOLF should let NANCY PELOSI be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  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?  The warriors of SAVAGE HEARTS 2 must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
Is there some deep dark secret why WHITE WOLF's been avoiding SAVAGE HEARTS 2 so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is SCHWARZENEGGER popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of SOLVEN!  He's got a 4-2-0, is that good?  
See if I ever talk to ROE V WADE again!  BRUJAH was so low when She challenged she.  
Hhmph!  If ROE V WADE can't beat a warrior 25 points below herself, that she 
CHALLENGED, she oughtta be selling food in the stands!  NO HURRY must not be a good 
enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged FLAT TAX.  10 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought NO HURRY showed great skill 
and promise when he subdued FLAT TAX.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All SOLVEN ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  I hear CONSPIRACY INC. sent ANN COULTER to the Dark Arena.  
What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Ann Coulter -- You have been spiked.  You are unusable and not funny. -- Editor, USA
Today

We are back.  A little sabbatical to ponder the happenings around here.  After taking
the throne, I had a lovely column written only to find the web site down for the
weekend.  No problem, submitted it on Monday along with the ads.  But curiously, the
Duelmaster column did not appear.  Then I show up again, and the first thing I see is
a process server with orders to vacate the arena.  It just seems like...some...sort
...of...CONSPIRACY! -- George Bush

Charles Rangel -- That was a very interesting strategy.  Was there a mess-up in the
equipment room, or were you trying your new Scum Striker strat. -- The Scorpion

Atilla -- You thought that just because you got in a lucky shot the first time, you
could do it again.  Think again! -- The Lotus

Judge -- Just in case you thought I didn't look anymore...2-3, it's gotta hurt, it's
gotta hurt. -- DK

Toad -- You should know that a Toad is no match for a Wolf.  I wonder what lovely
excuse Tazo will come up with? -- Ilsa She-
Woooooollllllllllllllllllllllffffffffffffffffff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Arls -- Oooohhhhh!  You did it now.  Made Mr. Freeze write a personal ad.  You in
trouble! -- DK

Jer Ber -- Just how I like em.  Not even close.  Better start using that wish to
avoid section. -- Snake Charmer

Arishtarte -- Is it really that embarrassing losing to a girl?  Seeing you run off
and hide under the stands was a bit much, don't you think? -- Jessica

Eldridge Phant -- Congrats on your first win.  Just stay away from me and let the
rest of my team handle you, OK? -- Schwarzenegger

Kiwira -- Whooo!  It's a good thing I did those extra sprints with Homeless Prince
this week.  Who knows what might have happened if I hadn't! -- Name Dropper

Chaos -- My, my, you boys are quiet.  Is that a symptom that comes with your tail
between your legs? -- Detective Kellumbo

Flat Tax -- "Demolished by Easy Breeze...".  Looks like you need to find some
defensives to use that "near AM" attack on...snicker, snicker.... -- DK

Savage Dragon -- Wow, such savagery!  Such draconian determination! -- Kalamazoo
P.S.  Um...how is it that I jumped you?  You should have been on me from the first
second, like, as they say, a duck on a waterbug.  Not that it did me much good to
make the first move, but still.
P.P.S.  Burying me, or attempting to bury me, in the sand was not a draconian sort of
thing to do.  You should have--  Wait, do I WANT to make these suggestions?  Hmm,
maybe not.

Jessica -- I'm amazed, not that you won, but that you didn't drive me two feet into
the floor of the arena with your blows.  I stepped out to face, stared at your knees,
looked up...and up, and there were clouds blocking my view at what was probably your
chest height....  Okay, so that's exaggerated, but it FELT like that. -- Arishtarte

Chung'Fow -- So why do I feel more like chopped zuey than anything else?  I mean, you
were hacking away at me, merely because I was trying to pulp you?  How unreasonable!
Anyway, I only intended to do a little tenderizing.... -- Zooie

Schwarzenegger -- Oh, cheese, sorry, I didn't mean to step on you, but I just didn't
SEE you down there.  I think you should either train your size, or else get elevator
shoes, because you could have a lot of problems like that. -- Eldridge Phant
P.S.  Shouldn't you be taller anyway?

Name Dropper -- You're so untidy!  I was merely attempting to clean up the LITTER of
names you dropped and dribbled all over the arena, and while my attention was
distracted, you HIT me!  I call that seriously anti-social.  Mend your manners, young
man!  It's never too late, but it won't get any earlier, either! -- Kiwira

Congratulations to Ilsa She-Wolf.  Bite them right and left on the Isle, girl! --
Leeta and The Zoo

Master Taco -- A mistake was made last turn.  I never submitted a turn and one of my
guys battled your guy by mistake.  Should have been obvious from the strat though. --
Al Gore

Assamite -- Excuses.  He may be dead, but I will do all I can to give as many loss's
to your win/loss record. -- Al Gore

Arishtarte -- They only test for performance enhancing drugs, not performance
dehancing ones. -- Bong Hits 4 Jesus

Kellumbo -- I've reviewed your request to change this to a Delarq arena, and sorry to
tell you it is denied. -- god, mngr., The 7th Day

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.

If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
