                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well hello fellow Iayeans...uh...Iayeans...hmm...friends living in Iaye!  It is
I, Sonic Taco, with my lovely little purple blankie atop the rankings for one final
turn.  Angus told me I get some land and I can never die.  How kewl!  I've always
wanted land and I don't recall ever wanting to die so it's like the two best gifts
ever!  I'm looking for help with packing because I'm moving to Andorak after my last
fight.  Any volunteers?  It's going to be great fighting with Purple Donkey and Funky
Elvis again.  Zowee!@  I'm so excited!  As to my final challenge I'm sending it out
to only one of the Challenger Champions...Dumb, Dumb.  Dumb, my irresistibly cute
friend, you've been the best teacher a girl could ask for and I want my last dance to
be with you, big boy.  Good luck to everyone and hope to see you all on the Isle some
day!

               Duelmistress Sonic Taco & her favorite purple blanket

     For any of you that are curious here's a brief look at Sonic's numbers and such.
11-10-4-15-17-16-11 Parry-Striker.  Favors the quarterstaff and loved to learn those
attack skills.  Her rhythms aren't totally desirable, but I'm going to try and make
them work where I can.  Masters in Attack, Decise and Parry.  Experts in Initiative
and Defense.  I won't give out her exact bonuses, but she was blessed by a total of
+18.  The best part about Sonic is she has that 15 wit, but learns like she has a 21.
That was the single biggest reason for any success she's had.

                         Angus

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon IAYE, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for WANKER X, who pummelled TELA, to 
pocket 18 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by DUMB, 
DUMB, of RED DOG GANG, who despite a 12-56-0 couldn't overcome IAYE's Number 1.  So 
who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds 
like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, DUMB, DUMB is the most 
challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Sonic Taco -- This is really annoying.  Dumb is getting all mushy-faced at you
winning the throne again, that stupid ox.  Does he spare a thought for ME, his
teammate, that might have had it instead, if you hadn't been one mean and nasty
woman?  No, of course not!  What a pig he is! -- Cherko the seriously annoyed but
unfortunately not terribly effective

Snotman -- You gotta not wipe nose on shirt.  Messy.  Dirty.  Not good. -- Dumb, Dumb

I take it the Guard is Ambitious to be one of those broken-down old men who hold
ladies' horses outside of shops.  It's about all he's fit for. -- Firedog
P.S.  I've seen fireplugs with more character.

Nuln -- You didn't lisp once.  I'm disappointed.  Bitterly disappointed. -- Sonora
Sara
P.S.  How come you made brilliant and masterful parries?  I mean, brilliant and
masterful?  I never realized....

The peasant is, indeed, happy.  And deeply in the throes of chocolate shock, but I
have no doubt he realizes it's worth it. -- Dark Chocolate

Pretty good to be most challenged.  Means I'm good, yes? -- Dumb, Dumb

Wanker X -- You would ENCOURAGE embezzlement? -- Sonora Sara

Sonic Taco prettiest. -- Dumb, Dumb
P.S.  Glad Sonic Taco never die.  Sorry Sonic Taco go away.
P.P.S.  Sonic do quesadillas?

                                    CHAOTIC WINDS
     Once, long ago, the four Winds of Time descended upon Alastari like a TEMPEST of
epic proportions, they slew everything within their all-encompassing reach.  They
left nothing.  In their wake lay smoldering ruins.
     In their haste they sped towards the center of this great land like a colossal
giant would step across an ocean.  The four storms picked up momentum on their way
towards each other.  A collision was eminent.
     The first storm wind, the oldest and wisest of the four was named APEXALUS.  The
second, FLAGGSTAFF, was the quickest and loudest entity ever created.  The third Wind
of Time was MATRIATIN, neither old or young, quick or slow, but fierce and feisty all
the same.  The forth wind, ASSAMITHIUS, the youngest yet most creative in its means
of destruction.
     When finally they merged at the center of ALASTARI, an incredible destructive
explosion occurred.  And when the smoke and debris cleared they were one.  CHAOS was
born.
     And Chaos spread across the diminished lands reeking havoc and doom with its
passing, and destroying allover again that which already lay in ruin.

28 January 2004
All -- I send out this invitation to all teams and managers.  A new Alliance has been
formed.  The Living Essences Alliance is being formed to join forces in an effort to
eliminate common foes and to help the joined warriors grow and learn to the best of
their abilities by offering suggestions and advice.  It doesn't matter what arena
you're in, or if you're in another alliance already, as of today.  This Alliance is
open to one and all!  If you are interested in joining, please DIPLO me, or send a
personal ad to DM 93's newsletter.  If you wish to join beyond March 2004, send a PA
to DM 82.  Come join the fun! -- Dagan LifeGiver, mgr. Shadow Warriors (DM 93)

28 January 2004
This notice is to formally introduce our young alliance, CHAOS INC.  We consist of
APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and now RUDE BUDDHA.  If we aren't already there, we
WILL be coming to an arena near you soon!  Hope to see you all at the ZALCON II.

4 February 2004
Greeting from Jhans, DM 36 -- In 2 turns the kLk will host our first annual "St.
Valentines Day Massacre" in Jhans, arena 36.  (Kill Contest)  The contest will begin
on turn 450.  It will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461 the winners will be announced.
There will be 3 separate categories, the team with the most kills, the alliance with
the most kills, and the warrior with the most kills.  For the manager of the team
with the most kills a PRIZE of 10 ROLL-UPS will be rewarded (or $50 deposited into
his account).  No need to declare yourself in the personals.  If you are in DM 36,
you will be part of the contest whether you like it or not.  We encourage as much
trash talk as you'd like.  All teams, managers, and alliances invited.  Please
contact Polarius (mgr. of Blitzkrieg) in DM 36 with questions.  Or you can email me
at jamieptmo@hotmail.com.  Good luck and see you in the sands. -- Polarius
