                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, it's is only logical that I should be Duelmaster, I am named after one of the
old Gods! -- Cyprian

I write this to make a statement!  Ms. Pakkit, I find it unacceptable that even
though I am Duelmaster, you are chartered recognition leader.  Please accept my
formal challenge, as it has been extended.  This matter must be rectified!

                      Cyprian

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in CLIFFHOME, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--JINDA-BAN.  Say 
what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but BOY O'S will tell you 98-79-8 
is nothing to laugh at...  Practice pays for ANGELO, who pummelled PERSISTENT BEGGAR, 
to pocket 15 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 10 points to REDD CORVAIT.  (Discrete enough, PHERESPUNDUS?) Well, 
Duelmaster CYPRIAN challenged JINDA-BAN's CONNIE PAKKIT.  Is a 10-0-0 good enough?  
What can be a greater victory?  CONNIE PAKKIT has taken hers place as the top, as 
CLIFFHOME's new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are CLIFFHOME's warriors?  Come, let us see.  If challenges 
were horses, BENT FENDER could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports 
for CLIFFHOME?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Bent Fender -- Let's party! -- Dionysus

Carter Pillar -- All is forgiven, but I am in no way associated with that said Dr. --
Cyprian
P.S.  Check out "Orphans of Chaos!"

Cyprian -- I keep trying to tell myself, "beautiful woman rising from the waves," but
there's a conceptual whiplash in that image.  No waves, for one thing.  Drat. --
Carter Pillar
P.S.  Because you'd look really GOOD rising from the waves.

Helphaestus -- No, sorry, I do NOT want to see you flex your muscles.  I forgot my
magnifying glass, anyway. -- Redd Corvait
P.S.  Oh, all right, I wouldn't need a magnifier to see 'em, but this just isn't the
time and place, you know?  Privacy is the key.

Matteo -- Do NOT get in the way when I'm coming down the road. -- Connie Pakkit
P.S.  I figure a Jinda-Ban is like an Auto-Ban, but with swords added.  Don't block
the road.

Pherespundus -- Listen, that was my BEST fender you just bent! -- Bent Fender

Hecantonchire -- A...three-faced, two-plus acre, locus of dire deeds by the dark of
the moon?  Whatever, I want none of it! -- Kartikaya

Menaeriadil, once a slave in Fratsfa -- As if! -- Redd Corvait

Our congratulations to Bob, Eternal, Tourney Champion in the Contenders and to Guru
Gnu, tourney victor in the Rookies. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
