                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, thanks to Crix vacating the throne, it looks like I will be getting an early
invitation to ADM after all.  Assur would have preferred me to stay here for my full
20 fights, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen.  At 30 PP's, I'm outta
here, more than likely.  That means I'll get my call after my 19th win, with or
without good skill learns.  That assumes, of course, that I win the next two fights.
But as the past is the best predictor of the future, I'm going to predict I do win
these next two fights.

Sushee Su gets my challenge, because John Rose is not available and because Bozo is
doing other things.  Bozo also wants Sushee Su to sit on the throne, for whatever
reason, so I'm giving her the chance.  He says he doesn't know why his challenge
didn't go through a couple turns ago, but it didn't.

More next time.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to RODEKI once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, COLOR 
ME SUAVE.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  
Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  FLAGG'S FIVE is now 
ranked 1st with a 5-0-0 turn.  What's with MASUMII?  He actually beat RODEKI's 
KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  See how the 
Duelmaster TV challenged DELVERS' SUSHEE SU?  That sort of initiative is how he got 
where he is now.  SUSHEE SU was reminded on the sands why RONALD MCDONALD is 
Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
FLAGG'S FIVE.  In my day, no team with a 188-190-10 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, CLOWNING AROUND?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, HANDSOME IS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  BOZO 
expects the easy win by going 31 points down.  THIRD BASE SPOCK will find this a hard 
lesson!  BOZO defeated THIRD BASE SPOCK.  I bet BOZO could beat two-year-olds, too.  
Well, COLOR ME SUAVE knows who to set their sights on.  I hate going to the effort of 
writing about the kind of fights that RED SKELTON gets in.  He fights people like 
HANDSOME IS, 9 points below.  I thought RED SKELTON showed great skill and promise 
when he was subdued by HANDSOME IS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of RODEKI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Ronald McDonald -- Careful there!  Pride goes before a fall, you know.  You might
trip over a dropped weapon and do a prat-fall.  Of course, for a clown, I suppose
this isn't always bad? -- John Rose, teacher extraordinary

1977 Amc Matador -- I don't find you suave, I find you pushy.  Stop that. -- Sushee

Red Skelton -- For a skinny guy, you're amazing. -- Handsome Is
P.S.  Amazingly ugly, that is.
P.P.S.  Why are you carrying that weapon?
P.P.P.S.  Duh.  Because you're a clown and you're SUPPOSED to do stupid things.

Yes, INDEED, I've faced more formidable foes in my bathtub, but the Fratsfa Slave

wouldn't know about them, because he has never been NEAR a bathtub.  You can tell by
the smell. -- The Mole
P.S.  Who told him he could be ambidextrous?

Monty -- How do you expect to rescue anybody if you can't do better than that? --
Handsome Does

Ed. -- It's true that wear-cats are not recommended in hot weather, all that fur, you
know.  But still, the steely underwear gives me pause. -- Sushee Su
P.S.  I think it would damage the washing machine.

     Dry clean only? -- Ed.

Rima Adler -- It's a good thing I can stitch my own wounds up! -- Dr. Hook

Red S. -- You really, really should have that Rash checked out.  But please make an
appointment next time. -- Dr. Hook

DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
                  2nd.  Renaming of a Stand-In monster.
     Come on and celebrate the Delarquan way!

     My fellow duelists I come before you bearing a sad and unfortunate message.
Several months ago our group, the Vendetta Cartel, had lost contact with one of our
friends.  Since he was in contact or correspondence on an almost daily basis there
was concern amongst us.  With some research two of our members discovered why contact
was lost with him.
     On November 10, 2004, Richard Hammes was taken from us in a senseless act of
violence during a robbery attempt at a friend's store where he sometimes worked.  He
was watching the store so his friend could go home to tend to his son who had taken
ill.  You may have known Rich as Abarsis, The Slaughter Priest ; richh10 on the RT;
or gameogre on the Duel2 messageboard.  You may not have known that he spent 13 years
serving the United States in the Navy.
     Rich dearly loved this game and all it encompassed.  He may not have been the
best or most experienced manager but he loved to interact with others and was quick
to offer advice whenever anyone asked for help.  He was always kind and gracious and
tried to strengthen our game, often by helping new players feel welcome or give them
a chance to compete.  With his prolific posting I know that I am simply speaking the
obvious about what he did for our game.  Many, like me, were drawn to him, perhaps
for his kind nature or his sense of humor, and it appears he lived his life as he
played this game.  Always willing to help or do right by others.
     I realize that he had many friends outside the VC so I will include the link to
the news story in case any of his other friends would like to know more of what
happened.  We're all dealt a hand in life but it's not the strength of the hand
you're dealt but rather how you play it that really matters.  Rich played his hand to
the very best of his human ability and for this I admire him greatly.  I know we all
choose to like or dislike managers but I believe deep down we are all good and
decent, in this game, and will drop party (alliance) lines and will show the proper
     Rich was taken from us all to soon and with so much left to offer the community
around him.  He spoke of a desire to run a contest on the Duel2 site which I hope to
uphold in his name.  Some of the people I have spoken with think it would be a nice
gesture to do one final good act in Rich's name, though it could never match what he
would've done within his community, for his community of San Diego.  I hope that with
this contest we might raise a little money to donate to an appropriate charity within
San Diego in his name.
     In conclusion I send a message to Rich:
     "Rich, though I'm sure you gathered this I never really told you how much I
admired you and what a friend I considered you.  I thank you for being my voice of
reason and always reminding me of why we both loved this game so much!  You have
taught me one final valuable lesson in learning more of you.  There are things far
more valuable in life than material possessions such as character and kindness.  That
nothing going on in your life means that you cannot find a way to be kind and giving
to others.  We always spoke of meeting someday and until we finally do know that you
will live on in with me and the rest of your brothers and sisters in the Cartel:
Master Darque, Kat, Bum, Sensei Jan, Maximillian, Hammer, Fizban, Firehawk, Phat
Phat.  You increased all of our enjoyment of this game, you were a true ambassador of
Duelmasters, and the game will not be quite the same without you.  A farewell battle
cry from the ZalCon:  'Confusion to our enemies'.  May your soul rest in peace, my
     Should anyone wish to correspond about Rich feel free to contact myself, or
anyone else within the Vendetta Cartel.

     Be it known throughout Alastari that Hammer is no longer a member of the
Vendetta Cartel alliance.
     A difference of opinion with another highly respected member of the VC due to my
recent vocal actions in DM 47 can only be resolved by my resignation from the VC as
of January 29, 2005.
     I leave of my own accord, in good standing with all members and with no hard
feelings towards anyone in the Vendetta Cartel.
     There was a time when I felt that my membership in the VC made the alliance
stronger.  I know that my resignation today makes the Vendetta Cartel a stronger
alliance with my absence. -- Hammer

On behalf of the ILLUMINATI Confederation of Alliances (The kLk, CHAOS, Inc. and The
Company of Brothers) I would like to express our sympathies concerning the tragic

loss of Rich Hammes to both the DM community and to the real life world.  Surely our
loss has been Heaven's gain. -- Talon Darkhart, deeply sorrowful
