                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, when someone offers me such an easy Duelmaster throne, who am I to say no?
     Heatblast, I'd like to congratulate you on a fight well-fought.  But I can't.
First of all, I didn't appreciate you showing up nude to our fight.  I mean, come on
man, cover up!  Second of all, even nude you barely managed 7 swings before you were
huffing and puffing and asking me for a time out.  Finally, you couldn't manage a
single attack that presented any challenge whatsoever.  I hope you were taking notes
when I demonstrated proper form.  I even did so with each hand to help with the
lesson.  I've got to ask: This is what passes nowadays for Lord Protectorship
mettle?!  Speaking of which, assuming you were using your favourites, I would
strongly suggest you consider something more appropriate to your inherent skill set,
like working a tollgate, digging ditches or changing out those little mints they put
in the bottom of privies to ease the smell.
     Where was I?  Oh yes, being charitable.
     So I am thinking I would rather not be given Iaye's highest combat honor in such
a fashion.  I didn't even think I was in consideration, given we had perfectly good--
using the term loosely of course--Challenger Champions around, not sure why it took a
lowly Champion who was just minding his own business, dodging any potential
challenges from Lenpros, to embarrass the current Duelmaster--again, using the term
loosely--on his way out.
     Where was I?  Oh, yes, saluting Iaye's best.
     So I am going to step down from the throne into which I backed so ignominiously
in the hopes that one more worthy to take it from will arise.  And I am going to hope
against hope that whomever does will bother to take the time to enlighten, praise and
encourage the warriors and managers of Iaye, as I have done here.
     Until then, as someone or other said, "Not tonight, thanks, I've got to rest up
for my monster."

Baba O'Riley

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, IAYE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? 
Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
THE GREAT LAKES win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, THE MIGHTY QUINN 
beat THE GOBI and THE GOBI lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, 
and inability to defend the throne, BABA O'RILEY has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  
Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
YELLOWSTONE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these 
guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  SERPENTS HOLD was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like LENPROS avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  GREY MATTER was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but JACK RYAN 
has challenged up by 31 in an attempt against YELLOWSTONE.  And, oof!  JACK RYAN saw 
stars around its helmet, after losing the fight, and disappointing the crowds, I 
might add.  I guess I can give a little credit to OUTBACK JACK of ALL JACKED UP for 
challenging up by 20 to GREY MATTER.  OUTBACK JACK lost to get 82 points of 
recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in IAYE to get a drink than The Wharf Rat!  Any 
suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off 
like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Love in Vain -- Seems I was just a hair quicker than you.  Glad you were able to find
our time together instructive.  All the best. -- Quinn

work out.  Good win. -- Tom

Lenpro -- Thanks for the welcome.  Not sure I expect to have to go easy on someone
managing north of 60% for, well, ever.  Grats on the record and all else.  Will be
fun, likely for you, to see how we match up!  And yes, you can count on me to
instruct the team to avoid you like the plague. :-)  -- Vlad

Fox and Jack -- Many thanks and looking forward to seeing how we fare against you and
yours. -- Vlad

Jerman and Weird Students -- About damn time! -- Vlad

Looks like I am going to have to implement a team policy where all DM spotlights go
across my desk before they hit the press... -- Vlad

Delta Blues -- Please excuse Sadness for the slaying of your new promising young
warrior M.O.  My deepest apologies. -- Master Fox

Four out of my 5 warriors last turn were in the least popular fighters.  Those
filthy, lowdown bilge-rats!  They had better start makin' friends... or else! --
