                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sure is nice sitting on this throne like a responsible Duelmaster.  It was just
the other day that Sablon was yelling at me about having a response to the dastardly
killing of Mountain Troll by Flimsy.
     "We must respond to this terrible death!  Amee, I am holding you responsible for
teaching Flimsy a lesson!"
     "Well...uhhhh, while I am a pretty responsible kinda warrior, I'm not sure I
have any ideas on how to beat ole' Flimsy.  What do you think?  You're a pretty
responsible manager?"
     "I'm just not sure.  All I know is we must have a response.  Don't worry.  I'll
think of something...."

***Hey Papaiz!  Don't you hate it when you get out thunk!?***

-- Amee

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
CALEAM brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Going for broke or broken, our 
Duelmaster FLIMSY Bloodfeuded this turn.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, 
as FLIMSY takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh. 
The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From CALEAM's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SHERWOOD FOREST, 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 HEADBANGERS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
SAILOR VENUS was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  SAILOR VENUS was challenged by one of HEADBANGERS' 
warriors this turn, with SPLINTER having a lead of 18 points going into the fight.  
And golly gee, SPLINTER bested SAILOR VENUS.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  
I guess I can give a little credit to TWISTED SISTER of IT'S ALL RELATIVE for 
challenging up by 22 to MISS PRISS.  TWISTED SISTER won to get 48 points of 
recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the CALEAM arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of CALEAM.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Papaiz -- Well, well, well....  Looks like I'm not the one who will be shutting up
this week.  5-0, with four wins vs. your guys.  Yup, I'd call that a pretty good
week.  Let's see how things pan out over the next few turns. -- Sablon-O-Vlad

Flimsy -- Care for another game of paper-rock-scissors? -- Amee

Sailor Venus -- I really didn't think I'd have a chance at beating you.  I just
figured I'd pick up some decent skills and hopefully not die!  Thanks for the win to
boot.... -- Splinter

Yucky Tucky -- Hey, it didn't seem that yucky to me. -- Doomsday

Butter Fly -- Shoo fly, shoo! -- Hammerfall

Crip -- Good to see you back here, even if it's only getting ready for the tourney.
-- SOV

Tuk Adow -- I know the arena is small, but there must be SOMEBODY else you could
challenge. -- Koribus
P.S.  It's not that we grudge you the skills and the wins, we'd just like to see
other warriors.

Mother Superior -- (very superior look) -- Miss Priss

Twisted Sister -- Wow, like a corkscrew! -- Poppa Lode, who never trained on hitting
corkscrews

Gravel -- In your gullet and all, I suppose. -- Go-Fer

That beggar was NOT polite. -- Bouncer
P.S.  But I didn't mean to hit him quite that hard....

Queen Papaya -- I'm holding my breath. -- Miss Priss

                                 TEN TURNS OF HELL:
                        The KLK Capture The Flag Competition

In the spirit of the ongoing effort to make arena play what it used to be (FUN!!), I
am proud to announce the KLK Capture The Flag Competition.  The competition will be
held in Jhans (DM-36, which has, by the way, grown in size equal to Talcama already).
:)  We are announcing this contest early to allow managers time to prep.

Rules:
     -- On turn 462 (due 8/4/04) the lowest ranked warrior on your team is given your
team's 'flag' (he is your initial flag defender).
     -- Starting on turn 463 (due 8/18/04) flags will be defended every turn and turn
463 is the turn scoring will begin.
     -- Fights involving flags are winners-take-all and a warrior can carry as many
flags as he can win.
     -- If a warrior holding a flag either A) goes inactive, B) loses to a stand-by
warrior or C) gets DA'd, he forfeits all flags he has and they are returned the their
original team's lowest ranked warrior.
     -- If you hold your own flag on an inactive warrior you receive NO POINTS that
turn.
     -- If a warrior graduates to AD holding flags starting on the next turn those
flags will be defended by the lowest ranked warrior on the team of the graduating
warrior.
     -- Scoring as follows for each turn:
          2 pts -- possession of your own team flag
          1 pt -- possession any other flag

     -- If still tied the tie-breaker will be the team that had the most points from

       DA warrior named after winning manager

     How's that for paying out? (grin)  Even if you think that it's all about the TC,
these prizes should be enough to draw you in.  (You know who you are.)
     I hope to see friend and foe alike come to Jhans.  Legion, Froths, and all the
others...this is your personal invite.  Can you win?  Can you survive 10 turns of
