                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, well; I guess this wonderful Duelmaster just simply hates
you all. Not a single one of you congratulated me, or threw me a
party, or even acknowledged that I am the best Chimmy has to offer.
Not a one. (Well, Lady Smith and Smithy don't really count.) So I say
up your noses with rubber hoses filled with ants and termites! Yes!
     And here I am again, of course. THE DUELMASTER. Don't really need
to brag; don't need to shout it from the rooftops; don't need to do
anything but to send each and every one of you a Phbbbttt! And I just
might also send you each a crow to eat.
                   Umbrella DMII (Useful Weapons)

                                      SPY REPORT

AFTER MIDNIGHT spent most of their day bloodfeuding (successfully, by the way).  Of 
course, we know all too well what they do after the day is over.  And the best news I 
have of the turn is that we have another bloodfeud active:

HARSK was butchered by SPECTRUM in a 2 minute bloody one-sided Challenge battle.

How beautiful is that?!?  A 2-0 warrior hoping for an upset victory, but even more so 
hoping to skill rape the old timer!  Not today!  HARSK is timed for the October dead 
tournament, though <evil grin>!

PANTOMIME did the good old grab the throne and graduate routine.  I really want to see 
a DM Column next time!  As far as I know, there has never been a DM Column done in 
pantomime!

Congratulations to the former Duelmaster.  Hopefully that Umbrella flies away with the 
crows it was intending to make us eat!  (I'll let the Umbrella decide if I'm giving it 
a late congratulations for taking the throne or a current congratulations for losing 
the throne).  I do thank you for the column, also.

And thanks to all for the ads.

And so I can claim I did some real work this week:

Not a single DC outside of the bloodfeuds.  The challengers who 'bravely' (or stupidly 
depending on your point of view) up-challenged went 3-7-0-1.

Not even close to .500!  True, it is only a single turn of data, but I keep telling 
you that choosing from all potential challengers is better for your win / loss record 
than only those above you!  Plus...  Even though recognition is not a great measure of 
ability it does mean something.

And with that I'm out!

          -- Belinda, back from vacation and enjoying a world wide athletics 
               competition outside of dueling right now
