                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well well...good things happen in two they say?  Two turns in a row as
Duelmaster and two Dogs getting the call to ADM on the same turn?!  Now, THAT is
something to be proud of, and it sure has been a long time coming since Da Dogs have
had the honor of that happening... circa 93/94 I'd say?!
     It's been a long standing tradition that if I'm lucky enough to have a warrior
on the throne when they get the ADM call that I share a bit about them in their DM
column... so here is the scoop on Red Dawg:

17-13-8-18(+1)-18(+1)-3-9
29/8/28/18/17/21

Morning Star (never used--crits with the Battle Axe way too much... just ask The
Wait)
Very High/Mod/Slash/Parry (but this we knew ahead of time <snicker>)

     So who to challenge this turn?  Do I stack on a kill at the DA or do I try to
assist my Dog Four Pawz in his ascension to the throne by challenging a warrior in
the arena in the hopes helping out my wingman?
     Valarelle -- You get my first challenge this turn.  As senior warrior in Kati-
Tei I feel the responsibility of giving you a chance to fight for the throne.
     The Wait -- You get my second challenge because I simply enjoyed marking my
territory all over you last turn that I'd like to do it again.  LOL!!!

My Dogs.... my gods... it sure is fun being on top!!!

For one final time....
Same doggy time,
Same doggy place,
Same doggy channel,
Your Duelmaster,
Red Dawg

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KATI-TEI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Going for broke or broken, our 
Duelmaster VALARELLE challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
KATI-TEI may be getting bland, as RED DAWG stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a 
very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, KATI-TEI?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  THE STORM FRONT was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DA DOG POWNDAZ.  Ha ha ha ha!  
VALARELLE was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to HARBINGER OF 
WOE of THE PLAGUE for challenging up by 21 to TYEFOON TURMOIL.  HARBINGER OF WOE won 
to get 100 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.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, VALARELLE of WANDERERS has added the final loss to hers 20-37-0.  Tee 
hee!  Seriously now, is it really honorable for RED DAWG from DA DOG POWNDAZ to kill 
VALARELLE and give WANDERERS the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  We're all 
going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     What does the KATI-TEI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

The Wait -- You really did get your Axe handed to you there... Battle Axe, that is!
-- Red Dawg

Angel of Arkham -- To be honest, I wasn't thrilled with the prospect of matching up
against you.  At the end of the day, I'm just glad I didn't give an Angel a dirt nap.
-- Hell Hound

Tyefoon Turmoil -- There goes Marma Duke messing with my rythems again!!  Well done,
ya windy thing!  I foresee a rematch in our near future! -- Lucky Dawg

Balin Chane -- An unexpected matchup to say the least.  We sure showed the youngin'
of the arena how it's done! -- Four Pawz

Reaper -- I see you're speaking in tongues again.  Has the snow gotten to you? --
Marms

Serpent's Hold -- Welcome to Kati-Tei!!!  You sure came in with a bang.... -- Marma
Duke & Da Dogs

Lucky Dawg -- So how does it feel to eat so much steel?!  I actually didn't mean that
to rhyme... but it's kinda catchy.  Anyways, I'm finally starting to impress my
manager along with the crowd.  Hopefully it's a sign of more to come! -- Tyefoon
Turmoil

Balin Chane -- I always appreciate your teaching sessions.  Go up the standings and
let's do it again soon! -- Tyefoon

Harbinger of Woe -- I guess I was starting to get a little cocky, so maybe it was a
good thing to be brought down to earth for a while.  But I WILL get that stylemaster
from you and Hell Hound soon! -- El Nino

Grim Lurcher -- Well played!  I thought that first one was a fluke, but you showed me
I still have some work to do. -- Syklone Sequel

Marlin Reeve -- I was hoping to get away from you.  Next time I'll just get a
restraining order! -- London Fogg

Ubba-Sathla -- Two vastly different fights and two vastly different outcomes.  Well,
I guess now I know which strategy I like better... which is nice! -- Mohnsoon Mayhem

Syklone Sequel -- If you're the sequel to the latest New Madrid quake, I'll pass.  It
isn't time for tornadoes yet. -- Grimm Lurcher

Damned Kung-Fu Dwarf! -- Valarelle

Four Pawz -- Well, I suppose that gives you the advantage, because I've only ever had
two. -- Balin Chane

London Fogg -- I brought my fog lantern to the fight, and you'd be amazed--or maybe
you wouldn't--at the difference it made. -- Marlin Reeve

Sunbane -- Drat. -- Ghost of Haley June

Our congratulations to Red Dawg and Hell Hound. -- Jorja and the Wanderers

Red Dawk and Hell Hound -- I got tired of seeing you two digging up my petunias.  Now
you're going away.  Good. -- Goban Steelsinger, Dwarf of Khalhums
