                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

We have two columns today, one that belongs today, and one that should have been in 
last time.  First, today's column:

Well, I'm back!  It's been a while Arvat but I have reclaimed my title of Duelmaster.  
I was last Duelmaster on Turn 480 after defeating Baskervole for the title.  Due to 
inactivity I was relieved of my title.  Now, after a span of 12 turns, I am again the 
top dog, after avenging the death of my former guildmate, Pretty Wild at the hands of 
Tad Deville.  I was unable to get revenge in our first bout but after some slight 
strategy tweaking justice was served.

I must say the view is much better up here.  This time I have no plans of going 
inactive so I will hold the throne until someone can beat me.  Hopefully that will 
not be for quite some time.  This next turn my challenges go out to Obsidian Golem.  
We have never fought and I am looking forward to testing my skills with him.  It 
should prove to be an exciting duel.

Well, that's about all I have time for this week.  I'd best be getting to practice if 
I want to be here again next week.


The old one:

     So I finally got permission from the boss to write one of these things.  I'm 
actually very lucky to be here, seeing as I don't stack up well to a bloodfeud from 
an Aimer.  Savory popped me good, but if I can do one thing well, it's take a hit.  
And here I am!
     I was instructed to say thank you to the arena and offer a welcome back to the 
Icelord.  My manager says that he's a cool guy...Heh, heh, heh.  Get it?  ICElord?  
COOL guy?  I love it!  I also have to spout the party propaganda and let you all know 
that I am the 24th Duelmaster from the Devil Advocates to hold teh title here in 
Arvat.  When and if I graduate I will be the 26th Lord Protector from this team.  
Both are arena records.  Of course most of us are dreadful, so there's that...
     That's about it for me.  I need to work out extra hard this week if I'm going to 
try to beat Savory again!

                                                            Tad Deville

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARVAT to see 
what's new.  MVP award for LITTLE RAINBOW?  FISHERMAN'S WHARF's proud of him after 
beating SENSOO O SURU and getting 28 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  DESERT 
FOX got smashed by IZUSU TROOPER, and lost 20 points!  Like THE STORMLORDS' OBSIDIAN 
GOLEM is sweating since it got challenged by Duelmaster SAVORY!  This Duelmaster is 
like something else!  SAVORY stopped OBSIDIAN GOLEM dead in its tracks!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  DEVIL ADVOCATES was ARVAT's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what THE STORMLORDS' been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from DEVIL ADVOCATES, 
that's fer sher.  Can BLITZKRIEG II's ARGONAUT be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  Some fights are really unfair.  
How do you think BASKERVOLE feels about being challenged by DIETER KWAN, 17 points 
above him?  Is this how DEVIL ADVOCATES advances, by having their members (DIETER 
KWAN) fight people that are really below them (BASKERVOLE)?  TAD DEVILLE is being 
unfair.  He's challenged down 18 against TASSALTER.  I don't know why they let this 
stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in 
ARVAT.  TAD DEVILLE got 2 points after beating TASSALTER, 18 points below him.  
People were asking me did ARGONAUT REALLY challenge BOATMAN KU?  (all right, maybe 
they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
BOATMAN KU wants me to write about it since he was defeated by ARGONAUT.  Satisfied?  
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARVAT ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Arvat -- Death Knight was 9-9-14-17-7-11-17 ST.  He had learned 4 skills.  On the 
positive side, since he is not really dead, he can always be resummoned! -- The 
P.S  Dahlgren, since Obsidian Golem has NO chance of beating Savory, I'm sending him 
down for the massive down-challenge BF.  You should be able to learn skills, I avenge 
Death Knight, and Obsidian Golem avoids a serious style disadvantage.

The Trainer -- It would be great to see you in Chimlevtal.  The newsletter is pretty 
good about updating as far as I know. -- The Icelord 

The Trainer -- Arvat turn #500: 15 teams and 3 personal ads--we will do our part. -- 
The Icelord and The Stormlords

Jorja -- Good to see you.  Give my regards to Lulu. -- The Icelord
P.S.  What is this "if it stays open until fight 500" stuff?  Do you KNOW something 
we don't?  Spill the beans and give us a heads up!

Snide Clemens -- When is the April mail-in going to run? -- The Icelord

     Nobody tells us those things. -- Temp. Ed.

Arvat -- Goal #1: 100 victories in Arvat.  Will it be this turn? -- The Stormlords

Stratostar -- That was better.  You need to slow down on the learning of skills 
though! -- Thor

All -- It has been quit a while since I have written personals, but I'm going to do 
my best! -- the Dark One


The Ice Lord -- Well met!  It has been a while!  Luck to you and yours on the sands!  
By the way, I recently spoke with Caesar and requested that he and his bloody crew 
return to Arvat.  He is considering a return. -- the Dark One

Ghost of Pretty Wild -- I thought you had me, too. -- Tad Deville

Savory -- As you discovered, I am somewhat better than Lil Eth... -- Tad Deville

Saratoga Glory -- Ask and you shall receive.  A DM column AND personal ads.  Will 
wonders never cease? -- Devil Advocates

RUGs -- Speaking of wonders...is it possible for me to receive a replacement warrior 
for this team that isn't a certifiable moron and/or a gigantic, drooling Shew?  Over 
the span of my years here I have had over 100 warriors.  That's right, over 100 
warriors.  Of thsoe exactly two have been of genius intelligence.  I would call 
exactly five of the replacements "good."  How about a break?  Or at least a volume 
discount! -- the Dark One

     What's in it for us? -- RUG #4573

Baskervole -- We know it has been long in coming, but thanks for being you! -- Devil 

Fisherman's Wharf -- Pick up the pace!  I out-personalled you this turn! -- the Dark 

     Ah, but you've been saving up for months.

Tad Deville -- Good fight.  I think I got you a little over anxious this time.  Lucky 
for me my tweak worked.  I think we will consider things even now.  Good luck and 
thanks for the rematch. -- Savory

Charon -- Thanks for the fight.  Sorry about the rough treatment.  I'm sure we'll see 
each other around. -- Silver Train

S.A. Tann -- Jeez, you're huge.  I thought I had you there.  Good job on turning the 
tables so quickly. -- Dynamite Flyer

Thor -- Hmmmmmmm.  That wasn't supposed to happen.  I think we need a rubber match.  
Congrats on the win.  Count on seeing me around. -- Stratostar

the Dark One -- I guess my rumor was just that.....  a rumor. -- the Trainer

     You know how it is with premonitions, sometimes the timing is off.

Blitzkrieg II & Polaris(?) -- Welcome back.  We were wondering if you were going to 
join us again.  We hope you stick around a little longer than just for the tourneys 
this time.  We enjoy the competition. -- the Trainer

Jorja and Fisherman's Wharf -- Thank you for the kind words.  I'll pass your praise 
on to Trademark.  It's good to see that everything is okay with you and yours.  Now 
will you graduate some of your fossils please?  It's getting a little crowded up top. 
-- the Trainer

Dieter Kwan -- Same as last time, no doubt. -- Baskervole the Bored

Sensoo O Suru -- Urg.  Wind sprints for me, I guess. -- Tassalter

Miss American Pie -- I loathe pie.  Especially when you throw it at me. -- Loggerhead

Lil Eth -- (sigh) -- Boatman Ku

Nautilus -- You should use your own exercise equipment. -- Little Rainbow

The Trainer -- It was the toothache, and the subsequent root canal.  Not to mention 
discouragement--how many arenas have no personals in them but mine?  But as long as 
you hang around here and write personals, I will be delighted to write personals 
back. -- Jorja, Fisherman's Wharf

Dynamite Flyer -- No, but it'll teach me to get out of town ahead of the auditor. --

1 March 2005
                                    The Contract
                         [as retold by Hammer the WordSmith]
     What had begun as a contract for swords and armor between a well known name in
the DM community and the former VC Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe was destined to impact and altar the landscape of the dueling
community for years to come.
     The following is but a condensed retelling of history in the making.

    Hammer continued sipping his tankard of Elven Tonic as the mysterious hooded
figure quietly seated himself across the table from the Veteran Manager whose back
was against the wall; allowing for a subtle, but effective surveillance of the dimly
lit tavern.
     Recent events in both Illis and North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena had stunned the DM
managerial world with the announcement that Hammer had resigned from his position as
a well respected member of the Vendetta Cartel Alliance.
     Those managers and associates closest to Hammer were shocked and dismayed that
there seemed to be NO Rational Explanation for Hammer making such a seemingly
irrational, hasty and extremely illogical decision; by what seemed to be a spur of
the moment reaction following the Declaration of War by Hammer in the DM 47 P-ads.
     This is what stirred the mysterious hooded figure to seek Hammer with a request
that would change the managerial course of both men; ultimately Rocking the
Managerial World of Alastari as a result of the forthcoming decisions reached by the
two Veterans.
     Time passed swiftly as both Veteran Managers discussed how the landscape of the
DM game on the sands of Alastari had changed over the years both in Basic and Tourney
play; producing a new breed of managers who would of necessity band together in an
alliance with a common goal; waging war against antagonists while improving the
managerial skills of each participating member in their glorious quest for DM
     Hammer listened intently as his unexpected guest inquired about the situation in
North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena; revealing his desire to participate in the upcoming
Turf War 4 contest in DM 47 with an alliance that would accept him on a more
permanent basis other than for just fighting together as a TW4 alliance to win fame
and Gift Certs.
     Here was a Veteran Manager, seeking the advice of Hammer regarding an alliance
to join on a permanent basis; plus extending a sword arm of friendship and requesting
that Hammer join him as an alliance mate with those who would welcome their
     The Iron in the Words of Hammer had produced this opportunity as a result of the
recent conflicts witnessed first hand by the manager seated across the table from
Hammer.  This Veteran Manager had been secretly searching and scouting around
Alastari for someone worth his mettle to fight alongside; someone who would know
where to find the perfect gang of rebels who were unafraid of waging war against
     Hammer knew exactly where to look and in a matter of days the two newcomers were
welcomed into the ranks of a group of managers who received them as war waging equals
in an alliance that had joined a Confederation of Alliances for the TW4 contest.
     Fighting under the banner of The Illuminati Confederation of Alliances alongside
members of Chaos Inc, kLk and The Company of Brothers during the TW4 was more than
either of the two Veteran Managers had envisioned a few months ago.
     Hammer was now entering a new journey with a new attitude.
     Perhaps you readers may have noticed that new attitude by now since this
announcement by Hammer is uncharacteristically Exclamation Point Free.
     Except for the famous quote by Hammer at the end of this announcement.
     Now that Hammer and the Mysterious Hooded Figure have agreed to join forces with
an alliance whose members have welcomed them enthusiastically; let those who desire
to be antagonistic be forewarned as to the identities of these newly welcomed wagers
of war:

kLk Bringer of Pain
