                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings, my fellow Iayeans!

Well, lookee here...I'm not even a Challenger Champion, but I'm Duelmistress.  I
guess with the complete lack of CCs here that is to be expected.  There's no one to
challenge, so we'll all find out who's to be in the title fight at the same time.
From the looks of it, it will be Cherko but perhaps an inactive team will pop back.
And speaking of inactive, I will be leaving after the title fight, only to return
when Ivy chooses to send me to a tournament.  That may be for the summer face, or it
may not be until the tourney of the dead.  Until then, I wish you all the best and
I'll see you upon my return.

Duelmistress Gazelle Hound

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of IAYE!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
TOUR DOWN UNDER.  But how many friends do you have now?  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave TOUR DOWN UNDER a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  
Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out 
the pain!  RED DOG GANG is now ranked 1st with a 4-1-0 turn.  What's with 
VALLISNERIA?  She actually beat RED DOG GANG's CHERKO, and walked away with 18 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at CONCENTRATION.  WOLFEGANG lost 13 points to 
IRESINE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe WOLFEGANG will provide more easy 
wins...  I'm sure IAYE is excited about THE FRATSFAN CHEF, the new Duelmaster from 
ANDORIAN UNIVERSITY.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was DOG DAY AFTERNOON.  In my day, no team with a 293-264-7 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, THE GREENHOUSE?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, WOLFEGANG!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

Dumb, Dumb -- You are my favorite opponent/teacher by far!!!  Although, I'm not sure
what I'm going to do with all of these parry skills you keep teaching me.  <confused>
Is that your favorite learn?  That might explain (at least partially) your lack of
a...um...better record. -- Gazelle Hound

Spin D'Topp -- You certainly spun my top! -- Great Dane

Generalissimo Puerco -- Welcome!  Unfortunately, I'll only be here one more turn and
I probably won't be back until September. -- Ivy

The Chancellor -- ABs always have a high mortality rate (or so my manager says).
Sorry I was the instrument of the demise of one of yours. :( -- Windflower

Goff, Carny -- Sorry to omit you from my introductory message last turn.  I must not
have been paying attention. -- Generalissimo Puerco

All -- The arena closures of a year ago are just starting to really be felt by me.
One of my champion-class warriors needs to move on, so I have selected Iaye as the
new home for my stable from Tarrgir, Andorian University. -- Generalissimo Puerco

Ivy -- I know he's become one of your tourney favorites, so I thought you'd
appreciate it if I brought Fratsfan Chef to an arena near you! -- Generalissimo
Puerco
P.S.  I've programmed him (he's a golem) to be gentle.

The Chancellor -- Greetings.  My team was last active in Iaye 130 turns ago, when
your team was also young.  It appears that you, like I, took a considerable leave of
absence from this arena.  In what other cities do you manage? -- Generalissimo Puerco

Gazelle Hound -- Nobody told Dumb he could fight, but then, it wouldn't have mattered
if we HAD told him.  He is so dumb, it wouldn't have made any difference. -- Goff

I kinda wanted to KILL that Happy Peasant.  The IDEA of painting smiley faces on his
armor!  I had to barf a couple of times before I could even face him. -- Cherko

Vallisneria -- Too classy for me.  I'm just plain... Vinilla

Twinkles -- Ole, big boy!  A good try, no?  Yes?  But mine was better. -- Chihuahua
Chica

Isoetes -- You have a neat name--different, you know--but you're too tall.  Please
try shrinking some before we meet again. -- Hot Tamale

Windflower -- It was probably the Dark Root.  There's been a lot of trouble with that
stuff going around.  It started down in Tobir, but I hear it's spreading. -- Goff

Great Dane -- It's all done with mirrors. -- Chihuahua Chica

Great Dane -- Curses for the gods will get you nowhere. -- Spin D'Topp

Chihuahua -- I think you have one too many 'Hua's'.  Yes I am sure of it. -- Twinkles

Yes -- MVP for Wolfgang. -- Carny

Gazelle -- Congrats on DM. -- Carny

Beta -- Someone very wise told us that if you swing and miss no one is swinging at
you. -- Karn

Generalissimo Puerco -- Unfinished business?  That sounds very sinister.  What did
the Red Dog Gang do to you?  If you have a war with Red Dog I will back you up all
the way.  Unless you start to lose.  There are new rules now in Iaye.  You will stand
and cheer when One-Gal-Band plays.  We insist Karn remain unbeaten and Karn may
change name at any moment.  There are more but I do not want to worry you. -- Carny

30 April 2003
All -- Remember to put your arena number on your strategy sheets.  Strategies turned
in without an arena number run the risk of missing the turn. -- NAIEI
