                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yep, I am here again.  To be expected?  Well, I AM the best putter in Iaye.  I
can whack it with the best of them, too.  My real goal in life was to play on the USA
Ryder Cup Team, but I simply don't have the resume.  But I can be a great Duelmaster
for Iaye.  I can.
     The boss has been ignoring us of late, (Hence the nice 4-1 turn.  "Big
chuckle.") because he has devoted massive time to watching the Olympics.  All of it.
His daughter called him the other day and she said, "They just don't understand us,
do they, Dad?  We want to see it all!"  (Apparently her new husband was complaining.
I don't know what is wrong with him--he can just go out and play more golf!)
     Well, things are looking pretty good for an NPC match up, since my teammates are
clogging the ranks below me.  Way to go, guys!  And, thanks.  We shall see.  Only
three more fights to live through, and I will attain LP status.  I cannot wait!  All
I can say to myself is "Stay alive, Big Guy."  You betcha!
                  Professor Putt, DM IV

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail IAYE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as LENPROS is pushed out of 
top team by WRATHMEN, who came from 2nd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  The ALL JACKED UP 
guild has had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, SPECKLE fought SENATOR SMITH and 
gained 33 points and contributed to RED DOG GANG's 2-2-0.  ARCHBISHOP ARNDT has lost 
to KAIJHEK, falling 18 points, while helping make LENPROS a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending 
his title for another turn, PROFESSOR PUTT kept DELTA BLUES' warrior, BLIND LEMON, 
from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dragon's Blood Inn until they win.  
Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  DELTA BLUES has cause to stand 
tall, as they were IAYE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided DELTA BLUES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
LENPROS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was WRATHMEN's 
warrior KAIJHEK.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  HER BEST ASSETS made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as 
they sent SULTRY WALK, with a record of 11-8-1, to SULTRY WALK death.  Farewell, 
hers.  The grave that ALL JACKED UP had dug for JACK LEG 14 may  yet be filled with 
the body of DARK CHAMPION.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  JACK LEG 14 
lives still!  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, IAYE, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in IAYE and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Ah, I see the BOBbies are expanding.  Some alliances need all the help they can get.
But I wonder why they didn't recruit some top managers instead of settling for
Khisanth, Grimm, and Bubbaganoosh?  (wink) -- Lenpro The Amused

Pat Sajak -- Loved the spot!  Just loved it.  Nice piece of writing.  Keep it up. --
Lenpro

Blind Lemon -- I hated taking advantage of your disability, but too much was at
stake, you know? -- Professor Putt

Khalhums Dwarf -- You are obviously on the wrong side of the gods.  Repent! --
Archbishop Arndt

All -- I will be leading a delegation to protest and stop the abject travesty of
disease moving into Iaye.  Gambling, inebriation, prostitution, and other overt
sinning has invaded Our Homeland.  Join with me! -- Archbishop Arndt

Kaljhek -- I was the lucky one this day.  A salute to you. -- Senator Smith

Vote for me!  I believe in the "Eat, drink, and be merry" quality of life.  Let's all
have fun together. -- Senator Smith (apparently quite the winner at the casino this
weekend.)

Kung-Fu Master -- I deserved that loss.  You are clearly the better warrior at the
moment.  Later. -- Major Miller

Paceson Vorhees -- Thanks for the challenge.  I needed a reasonably easy fight and
win at this moment in my career. -- Honorable Hafale

Kharadmon -- We simply circle the BF challenge and write BF in another color in front
of it.  It seems to work.  There are limitations on whom can BF a Duelmaster, I

believe.  I think one must be a challenger champ.  I think.  However, there are no
limits on the BF elsewhere in the rankings. -- Lenpro
P.S.  Again I apologize for Lala's death.  She looked like a fine one.

Pat Sajak -- No more prayers for you.  That one must have backfired.  That was MY
double-twenty-one you got! -- Lenpro

All Jacked Up -- Great point gain!  Wow!  No wonder we avoid. -- Lenpro

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Iaye Forever. -- Lenpro

Kharadmon -- Its all good, I just have a hard time apologizing after killing.  It
just sounds funny.  "Oh, I'm sorry I just stabbed your warrior to death."  Lenpro is
the man but we can't let him know that. -- Pat Sajak

All -- Lenpro has inspired me to do the same.  Here's the numbers of the current 4
Jacks: ST -- 13,9,11,15.  CN -- 15, 3, 7, 6.  SZ -- 18, 16, 15, 10.  WT -- 17, 17,
17, 21.  WL -- 13, 17, 17, 21.  SP -- 3, 9, 12, 12.  DF -- 3, 6, 7, 17.  I don't know
all the bonuses and penalties.  I'm not that big of a nerd, but I guess that's what
makes Lenpro so damn good.  See, Kharadmon, you complement and talk smack at the same
time! -- Pat Sajak

Pacemaker -- Send Toothpace to the DA with nothing but his Oral B!  KIIIIIIILLLLL
HIIIIIMMM!!! -- Pat Sajak

Senator Smith -- My dislike of politicians grows mor intense every time we meet.
Maybe I should play your game...what's it worth to you for me not to tell your wife
about that young intern?  Hmmm? -- Kaijhek

John Wayne Pacey -- Nice try, Pilgrim. -- Kaelyn

Midnight Barker -- Wow!  That looked bad.  I don't know what happened. -- Aeryn
P.S.  If your manager wishes to bloodfued then say so, otherwise I'll be sitting and
waiting for the next tourney.

Jr. Kimbrough -- Lucky draw for me. -- Nodohgo

Red Rover -- I'm not done with that ham bone yet.  You can't have it. -- Neor Fey

Neor Fey -- If you were a Dog, you'd know what to do about 'em. -- Red Rover

Keira -- It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.  I just wish you hadn't done
it THIS time with the Barker.  He was noisy, but he was ours. -- Speckle
P.S.  And do NOT think you can get away with lifting a Dog by the ears!

Pat Sajak -- I've been playing by this set of rules for twenty years now, I wouldn't
know how to behave if I could access the full range of managerial tools. -- Jorja

Kharadmon -- The replacement for Old Blue is... a replacement.  Probably not all that
much different, when you get down to it.  Barks at the mailman, sleeps on the couch,
mooches at the table. -- Jorja

Tooth Pace -- My teeth are bigger than your teeth. -- Speckle

Keira -- Hey! -- Ghost of Midnight Barker

Honeyboy -- Well, darn.  I was all set to lick it up--good thing I'm an omnivore--and
then you smacked me. -- Houn' Dawg, sulking

Neor Fey -- You were out to GET me, I could tell! -- Red Rover

Jack Tripper -- Gimme a chance to get the hang of this stuff, and I'll do better. --
Old Brown
