                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     "This is never gonna work...let's just go back," exclaimed Dirty Sanchez as he
spun on his heel to run as fast as he could.
     "Not so fast," gritted Mad Dog Montana as she and Jurassic Jordan firmly held
him by the arms.  "Stop being such a cry baby, about having to take another bath!"
     "I can't believe they wouldn't even let me in the building...I'M THE FRIGGING
DUELMASTER, and the guards turned me away at the door!" screamed Sanchez as the two
little girls picked him up without effort and tossed him in the tub for the fourth
time.
     "And you look like every other street urchin, claiming they're the king of Siam,
wanting to get in for a free meal, empty bed, or whatever other perk is given to the
duelmaster of Lapur!" laughed Jordan as she constantly dunked his head under the
water.
     "Still," sputtered Sanchez, "they should recognize me, I've fought enough times.
But NOoooooo, the guard refuses to let me in and then he called me a name that meant
my mother and father weren't married when I was born...for all I know that may be
true since I was pretty young back then, but that's really none of his business
anyways."
      Jordan looked at him with a confused expression but before she could comment
Montana pushed him under again.  "Trust me Jordan, don't try to figure him out."
     "Why don't we let Roadkill take care of getting him in anyways, Montana?"
     "No, Roadkill's been busy, errr...redecorating his office."
     "Redecorating???  Roadkill???"
     "Well since he lost his 2 best aimed blows and his best lunger in the tourney
he's kinda smashed a chair or two, punched a hole in the wall, which will make a
great place for a new window.  I think it would be best if we just stayed out of his
line of fire for a few days."
     "Oh, okay.  Hey Montana?"
     "What now, Jordan?"
     "I think you're drowning Sanchez, maybe you should let him up now?"
     "Not just yet, the water still only a dull brown."

Greeting Lapur,
     First of all I've very embarrassed to be man handled by those two.  Oh sure,
they may look sweet and innocent, but it's like when they step onto the sands, all of
sudden they both get a look in their eyes that really freaks me out.   With a little
luck I can stay here one more turn, get my invite and not have to worry about those
little spawns of cruelty.

     I'll only post one challenge this turn.  Buzzsaw, being the #1 contender, you
deserve a challenge.  My other challenge was left open so that should give the rest
of the challenger champions a shot if they want one.

Morrigan, the title would have meant more if I had won it from you, but since our
last fight was a blood bath....  I didn't avoid, I also didn't challenge either.
Congrats on your invite, it was more that well deserved.

Duelmaster Dirty Sanchez  

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LAPUR to see 
what's new.  Like, MID EARTH had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 
spot by STREET WALKERS!  Way to go STREET WALKERS!  I don't wanna hurt anybody's 
feelings or anything, but GODS OF WAR really goofed with their 0-0-0.  VENUSIANS like 
really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 11th.  Way to go!  Cut this out and put it 
in your scrapbooks, CARDOW HUNTERS!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 14th!  MVP 
award for DAEMON?  ABYSSAL PLAINS' proud of him after beating PEITON and getting 26 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  PEITON's match with DAEMON cost him a loss of 
21 points!  MENSA thinks hers 17-32-1 and studly character is good enough to face up 
to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think DIRTY SANCHEZ should let MENSA be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting 
about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask 
me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of CROC FILES must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what BLACK 
SAMURAI's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from CROC 
FILES, that's fer sher.  Can CARDOW HUNTERS' CLOUD TIGER be more popular than me?  He 
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?  I hear WILL DUEL 4 MEAD sent GOO II to the Dark Arena.  What, is that 
like not well-lit, or what?  It was kind of sad, seeing old FORTITUDE stumbling 
around the arena, before URD finished him off.  Oh well!  What a bunch of heartless!  
I couldn't believe how many people were snickering when GOLDIE killed RED LILY.  So 
she had a 12-13-0, that's no excuse!  It was so gross when GOLDIE of STREET WALKERS 
killed RED LILY.  They should start making warriors use safer weapons, or more 
shields, or something...  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  LAPUR is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Uncle Wolf and the Cardow Hunters -- How about letting us in on your adventure?
We're getting bored twiddling our claws and chasing our tails all day. -- Croc Files

     This could be, though not today--no episode today for various reasons, some of
     them good.  Send me a lightning pigeon about this. -- Scribe/Temp Ed.

Dirty Sanchez -- Well look at you, all gussied up.  (no one wants a grungy DM)  You
know this means you're buying.  At least the first round, we're chipping in for the
entertainment.  Course'n you're safe from me, style loyalty and all that.  I can hope
for the matchup but with your speed that's far from a done deal too, soooo maybe I'll
just wait for and vanquish your deposer.  You know, help stand up for all the little
slashers in the arena. -- Buzzsaw

Ankaa -- Guess I'm not quite ready for the prime-time.  But that was a good tester.
-- Turtle

Duelers -- Nice resurgence. -- Stable Escapade

Mensa -- Okay, Okay, doesn't take a genius to gander that fight out.  I got yon ex-
sword from Buzz's buddies (nice inlay) and there it goes and lets me down right at my
moment of conquest.  I wuzzz conquesting you, you know? -- Sparkle Farkle

Midnight Ruin -- This can opener is just about all I have the strength to use, but I
like it! -- Dirty Sanchez

Camulus -- Stick to Brickouse...I like to hit back. -- Goldie Showers

Platitum Peener -- You welcome, while I usually teach well, you seemed to enjoy it
more than most. -- Brickhouse

Daemon -- I was going to use the excuse that the sun was in my eyes, but that really
won't cut it since you blocked it out. -- Mad Dog Montana

Scion -- Don't you just love the ones that surprise you!!!  A couple of my favorites
was a waste 11-11-11-15-17-6-13, graduated at 18-8-1.  The other a striker ( I don't
have his stats at the moment so to hold to the exacts, but close to 11-9-11-17-13-10-
11) graduated 20-3-4.  Well done, sir. -- Roadkill

Arturius -- Chivalry???  I'm a chick!!! -- Mad Dog Montana 
P.S.  I'm really not a bad person OUTSIDE of the arena.

Camulus -- I'll leave that up to you, just let me bang out the dents in my armor
first. -- Brickhouse

Forward -- And backward.  That's the way it goes, sometimes. -- Red Lily

Fortitude -- Drat, I only brought threetitude to that fight, and it wasn't enough.
Well done. -- Firefly

Neopolitan -- Great, give me all your striped ice cream! -- Cloud Tiger

Hulik -- It was supposed to fall on YOU, not me. -- Ghost of Sky Falling

Reeses -- And I don't even really LIKE peanut butter with chocolate. -- Ghost of
White Ape

Longinus -- I wouldn't be surprised, but I can't remember that far back. -- Cloud
Tiger

Morrigan -- Thank you for the classy words. -- Tye Foon

Roadkill and Brickhouse -- Thank you for the kind words.  Bricky, I do not think
winning one lucky fight with you really justifies you being so certain I could repeat
it. -- Tye Foon

Firefly -- Nah, you didn't complain.  It would be hard to base when you are getting
three wins for one loss. -- Storm Front, mgr. Force of Nature

Callisto -- As one to never say no to a dance, I would look forward to anther
meeting. -- Ava

Sovereign -- Three fights against you stable and I win the one I would expect to lose
every time...go figure. -- Storm front

Athena -- I have to say I would not mind giving that another shot sometime. -- Rage

Sporkis and Skuld -- You are asking how I paid off the commission?  How do you down
challenge, lose, and gain recognition?!  Okay, Okay, I do not really recognize that
as a down challenge, same number of fights with two points different in recognition,
but a lose to a winless warrior and that much gain.  Who's paying off who now? --
Storm Front
P.S.  At least I got a win now -- Ava

Enyalius -- Nine out of ten tries I lose that fight.  Not that I am going to
complain, I need to graduate and be put out of my misery and staying up here gaining
political points helps a lot. -- Zero

Croc Files -- Ouch...I always find it an honor to lose to one of yours. -- Storm
Front

Turtle -- Although the first loss is hard, I am sure the skills will make up for it
somewhat. -- Ankaa

Sparkle Farkle -- I'm just as surprised as you are! -- Mensa

Vanilla -- If you ever want a rematch, I would be more than willing.  Only you,
though, the rest of your stablemates scare me. -- Callisto

Mossman -- Hopefully I can put all those new skills to good use. -- Dysnomia

Liternius -- Wow, I can win without killing, I guess Venus was right. -- Solar
Eruption

Arturius -- I know what it is like to have a warrior who goes a bit too far after
taking offense from a comment or action.  I have a warrior that is working through
that issue right now (Solar Eruption).  Don't tell her but I have taken to dulling
her blades.  Ankaa is now available to avenge her friend.  Hopefully she doesn't make
the same mistakes as Vega, since my feet are getting sore from all the traveling to
find replacements. -- Venus

Mad Dog Montana -- Killed an ally of ours you did.  Though fairly danced it was,
still will no ally go unavenged.  We trust you see the honor in this. -- Lazarian,
mgr Abyssal Plains (Necromancer and Ahringol Priest)

Oremaster and Ora -- Your careers we watch with interest both keen and sure.  May the
sand not shift beneath your feet as you dance. -- Lazarian
