                                    (turns 25-50)

     Greetings mighty and glorious Chimlevtal!  Once again The Council of Lords
presents Chimlevtal History Facts.  I have compiled a nearly complete list of all the
Duelmasters of our great city.  I am missing some data though.  To complete the list
I need the following:  styles for Spectacular Bid, Snow White, Donald Duck,
Wolverine, Nurse Fortune, Fate and Tool.  I also need the name, team name, record and
style of the Duelmasters on turns #15-#17.  This would complete a pretty interesting
historical record of our Champions.  A special thanks to Huckle Cat who supplied
information for turns #4-#14!  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
     And now the Duelmasters of Chimlevtal from turn #25 (11/13/87) to turn #50

                                 ON COUNCIL BUSINESS
                                      (part 11)

     A simmering anger consumed Tantoo the Assassin.  He had never been unnerved or
rattled in the many years he had practiced his craft.  He had had some close calls,
true, but the Master of Shadows had always methodically overcome all odds and
completed every contract accepted.
     When he arrived in Chimlevtal from Barikala, he had agreed to eliminate The
Icelord and High Lord Bosk.  Nothing personal, it was just another job.  Intel had
told him The Icelord was one of the most powerful wizards on the planet.  Bosk had
the reputation of being the greatest swordsman of all time.  He savored the
opportunity to bring down the best and the pay off would be worth a King's ransom.
     His prey were not in the city though.  Rumor had it they were on another realm
to fight the monsters that had been terrorizing Chimlevtal.  This displeased the
Assassin but he took on a new contract:  kill Raoul the Rude, Master Janos and Darzon
the Pirate, all allied with The Icelord and Lord Bosk.
     He had brought in two half-orc brothers, Larzon and Landfrey.  They were tough
as nails and loyal.  He looked across at the duo.  Larzon's left knee was bandaged
but healing.  Landfrey wore a black patch over his now empty left eye socket.  Tantoo
himself had a broken nose.  All of this was the result of their first encounter with
Council forces.  True, he had managed to slay a Council Lord Protector known as
Shalzar, but that did not still his anger.
     Over the course of the past few days, the trio had known no respite.  Council
forces had kept them in a constant state of flight.  They had killed three pursuing
mastiffs and had barely escaped their Council handlers by entering Chimlevtal's
sewers.  Raoul the Rude was consumed with rage and Tantoo knew he would have to
eliminate him.
     The trio was now hiding out in a old barn.  A large farm house was near by but
that had burned to the ground not long ago.  Tantoo knew that a great battle had
taken place here recently.
     He decided to lay low and let his partners heal.  Many plans went through his
mind.  It was no longer business.  Now it was personal.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings fellow warriors,

     It is with great honor and pride that I have ascended this throne.  There is no 
greater honor in all of Alastari thatn to be the Duelmaster of Chimlevtal!
     I am however, a little sad to be leaving as this has been my home through life 
and death and life again.  But I look forward to joining my swordbrothers Yukon Jake, 
Cool Hand Luke, Lone Wolf and Husky at the Isle.
     My challenge this turn goes out to Ninjato as it is only fitting.

                                    Good luck to all and farewell,

                                                                  Oil Can Harry

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CHIMLEVTAL.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  THE 
STORMBRINGERS were a bunch of dogs after AH NOW KLK HAMMERZ got through with 'em!  
3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too little dodging gave 
WHAMMO & THUDDA 4 U! a 0-1-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n 
down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, AVENGERS' 
10th moved them up to 4-1-0 place.  It seems so recently people were saying DARQUE 
FORCES was washed up, finished.  But 4-0-1 moved them up 4.  I guess they're washed 
no more...  What's with ENDOR?  She actually beat AVENGERS' WHITE NOISE, and walked 
away with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MILITARY MAYHEM while 
they watched PSYCH MAJOR clobber DAMHAIN THE SATYR.  He lost 11 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  THE STORMBRINGERS' hatred of THE 
CANUCKS surfaced again as GREYSCALES challenged CHIMLEVTAL's top dog.  I'm sure 
CHIMLEVTAL is excited about GREYSCALES, the new Duelmaster from THE STORMBRINGERS.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was AH NOW KLK HAMMERZ.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
THE STORMBRINGERS ain't reelin'!  AH NOW KLK HAMMERZ's mad!  What do people see in 
SALEM?  His 11-7-0?  DARQUE FORCES ain't talkin', but he's got 94 points.  NINJATO 
expects the easy win by going 17 points down.  DOOM HAMMER will find this a hard 
lesson!  NINJATO's gonna be practicin' hard this week, after DOOM HAMMER, lower 
ranked by far, mashed him!  Fighting is a better craft than farming, TARL CABOT, but 
you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by BAMBOO, 16 points above you, is dues. 
BAMBOO won victory over TARL CABOT.  I bet BAMBOO could beat two-year-olds, too.  
Well, THE STORMBRINGERS knows who to set their sights on.  Taunt your opponent SHE 
MADE ME!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 20 
points!)  FAOLAN AP GRYFFYDD should have an easy win.  I have to get this off my 
chest.  What a low dog, FAOLAN AP GRYFFYDD!  He can't set himself up in a real match. 
I was sorry to see SHE MADE ME lose.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, FREKI, 
but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by TEN-TON TESSIE, 19 points above 
you, is dues.  TEN-TON TESSIE defeated FREKI.  NUMBERS GAME calls this fighting?  In 
my day...   
     Warriors of CHIMLEVTAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  SURTUR looked 
pretty sick and surprised when he learned STORMWATCH is sending him to the Dark 
Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 3-8-0?  So JUST DESSERTS sent OMNIPOTENT OREO to the 
Dark Arena.  Big deal.  Plenty more fighters where OMNIPOTENT OREO came from.  Dime a 
dozen...  Now, Spyreporters...  WHITE NOISE of AVENGERS didn't know when to quit.  
When you've got a 7-5-2, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Someone told BARTOFELES 
that NUMBERS GAME never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure 
whoever misled you is right sorry.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

Destitute N. -- You won't see any homage to Terrible Two.  Didn't he just lose the
throne?  His reign lasted as long as Killing Machine's did.  You might want to hold
off on that talk about breaking Savory's run and the HOF until you get the job done.
-- The Stormlords

Destitute N. -- I don't care what you think about Lord Protector Napulak.  You're
just steamed because she roughed up your boy. -- The Icelord (did Terrible Two just
lose the throne?  HOF?  Are you going to use him to BF me in Chimlevtal?)

Huckle Cat -- Thanks for stat info on Donald Duck (LU) and Snow White (TP).  I
appreciate it.  Master Janos has been doing his research and hopes to print all the
Duelmasters of Chimlevtal. -- The Icelord

RTR -- I see an attack has been made against The Council.  Lady Jasmine will use her
healing powers to heal the immortal Lord Protector Shalzar.  Hunt down those
responsible and show them no quarter.  OMNE JUS STAT IN ARMIS! -- The Icelord

RTR -- Of course Sensei Jan is sitting out Bijin to avoid a Council BF.  It is the
Crying Cartel way. -- The Icelord

RTR -- Of course Fizban can't run a full stable.  He is a member of the Crying
Cartel, after all. -- The Icelord

Fizban -- Give my regards to Got Hammered and Blond Moment. -- Zarendargar

High Lord Bosk -- I am ready to battle on this new realm.  Let us show them the error
of their ways! -- The Icelord

Destitute N. -- Hmmmm.  Let's see, I could sit out and avoid your BF.  Uh, I could go
inactive and claim I am "tourney prepping!"  Hmmm, I could just have my entire team
go inactive and claim to "have business elsewhere."  No, that would be the way of
cowards and the Crying Cartel.  Terrible Two, you're up! -- Bartofeles (can't run a
full stable??)

Horagalles -- Ouch! -- Faolan Ap Gryffydd

Ten-Ton Tessie -- Lucky you.  Where is the rest of your stable? -- Ulthar Jarva

Bartofeles -- Good job! -- RTR

Destitute N. -- Watch and learn.  TGWY. -- RTR

Lord Protector Shalzar -- I will lead the Council response to this attack.  Heal
quickly, warrior! -- RTR

Sensei Jan -- So you continue to sit Bijin out to avoid a Council BF.  What a coward.
<lol> -- RTR

Fizban -- Where are your two newbies?  Can't recruit anyone to fight for you? -- RTR

The Icelord -- I fear that desperate nobel is sissified to the point where one of his
parchments gets moistened, it is too much for her to bear.  <sigh>  This is truly not
a warrior's world.  May we fare well, Brother! -- High Lord Bosk

Darzon -- Seek full vengeance! -- High Lord Bosk

Master Janos -- Great chronicling!  I wonder if there is enough combined historical
knowledge to determine the missing DM's.  Well done, Historian! -- High Lord Bosk

RIP Love Potion #9.  Alas, what could have been.  Started 3-11-15-17-21-12-5 +4 init,
+1 att.  Truly an experimental warrior for me, but one who did surprisingly well, if
only #9 had learned some attack skills instead of all those initiative.  Killed in a
typical 28 point downchallenge by Icelord, this was the second time Bartofeles had
downchallenged Love Potion, though the last time was only a 10 point downchallenge.
In the immortal words of Daffy Duck, "you, sir, are despicable". -- D. Noble

Bartofeles -- I wonder if you watched when I sent Rezos to the Isle with my longsword
still stuck in him?  I'm chomping at the bit to see if you'll show up this turn to
accept my bloodfeud.  If you do, note that I'm not just coming to avenge my fallen
comrade, I'm coming to send you to your final resting place, even if it means my
overexuberance to kill you means my own demise. -- Terrible Two

7 June 2005
I am in the process of moving house, and spotlight writing for the next two months
will be very hit-and-miss. -- the Scribe

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
