     Well...well...well...one turn left and it's almost impossible to catch X-
Syndicate...and ya'll notice I said *ALMOST*.  Anything can still happen.
     Sorry scores weren't printed.  Not my fault.  But...didn't I tell ya almost
anything can happen?  I guess HAL got hungry again.
     Since I'm working on a bunch of stuff at one time IRL...I'd try to explain,
but...ya probably wouldn't care...anyway...I'm just gonna submit the overall scores.
Make it easier on myself and the typist.
     One note I'd like to make clear...X-Syndicate...I need an address to send the
prizes to.  My address:  Rick Stringer, SWRC, 23207 DUPONT BLVD, Georgetown, DE
19947.  Let me know what's up.

     Okay...here's the total scores:

X-Syndicate:         703
SCOMS Tower:         352
Vendetta Cartel:     303
Illuminati:          208
The Iron Council:     33
Desolate Empire:      28
T.A.T.I.O.A.H.C.:    -51

Well...that's it.

HABITS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  With any luck, I can 
sneak into The Warty Toad and join DARK PINNACLE's celebration over their good record 
this turn.  10th place, not bad.  If The Warty Toad is buying drinks for ROYAL 
FLUSH's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 4-1-1 makes for a 
big thirst.  Look out below!  ALL SWAMP HAMMERZ is on the way down, falling to 30th 
from 17th with a 1-2-0!  Ha ha ha ha!  Now let's all watch OLD HABITS' heads swell 
from their 4-1-2 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see MORWHEN win a fight and gain 25 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, RED DRAGON beat CAESAR and CAESAR lost 14 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster WHITE SETTLER 
challenged this turn.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as WHITE SETTLER 
takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The 
Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From SCOMSS SWAMP's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  ALL SWAMP HAMMERZ was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like DARK PINNACLE avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  ZOMBIE ASSASSIN 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  Now look at this.  CYRUS THE GREAT challenged down 16 against 
LAND OF OZ's HUMBUG.  What a weasel!  CYRUS THE GREAT was beat by HUMBUG!  Ok, CYRUS 
THE GREAT want to fight my grandmother next turn?  Huh?  I notice LOWELL challenging 
down 21 points to fight MEDEE, SECOND BANANAS doubtless has some rotten excuse for 
such an insult to honor.  And golly gee, LOWELL subdued MEDEE.  Aren't we all 
surprised and impressed?  I guess I can give a little credit to GALIUS of KNIGHTS 
TEMPLAR for challenging up by 25 to CRYPT ANGEL.  GALIUS lost to get 6 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.  I could say I saw this coming, but so 
could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  HALLE BEARY's 7-14-1 has earned her 
the Dark Arena.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, AHURA MAZDA 
of KNIGHTS TEMPLAR has added the final loss to his 13-14-1.  Tee hee!  Bye bye, 
warrior, bye bye...  WOW, a glorious 5-6-1 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad 
PALINDROMES.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, MARCH of 
MINSTRELS has added the final loss to his 7-7-0.  Tee hee!  Not that I'll be buying 
the drinks, but I'll be glad to see PAUL BEARER and THE BEAR'S PAW at The Warty Toad 
tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over FESTUS.  A big yahoo goes out to 
BLOOD RAYNE this turn, for revenging DARK PINNACLE's bloodfeud against THINGS I DROOL 
IN's warrior PIZZA PIE PARTY.  Heh, heh, heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it 
only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this 
one.   
     What does the SCOMSS SWAMP 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

Oh man...I got the jump, broke his weapon, then got carved up like a pumpkin.  Damn!
-- Marajuana Man (in spirit)  13-12-8-17-10-9-15, Adex in Att/Dec/Init

Oz the Great -- Good to hear.  May it never topple.  Can't get them all the time. --
Blackstorm

Baphomet -- Got your scroll.  I know Max is probably just jesting, but you never
know.  One thing is certain.  We at the Black Storm are just a thunderclap away.
Call if needed. -- Blackstorm

Liam -- I understand you have even worse mail than I.  Sorry about any rudeness on my
part.  It was quite obvious you weren't downchallenging on purpose. -- Blackstorm

Snark -- Master no more.  Maybe on Hallow's Eve. -- MM

Crypt Angel -- Tough girl huh?  Hey, what's with the -8?  I'm not that good in the
first place, and I have to fight higher ranked. -- Freeborn

Party Trap -- Whu??  That's all?  I got it right this time. -- Eviscerator

Appius -- Good try.  I discovered a hidden talent.  Now if I can just swing
straight.... -- Black Thunder

Well, I guess things are not as they appear and this game is harder than it looks.
Maybe I'll do better this turn. -- Mr. Possinger

Liam -- Welcome to the great State of Texas! -- Tarl P.

Toker -- Maybe this is premature, but to this newbie, 80 fights with a losing record
needs more than a new team! -- Tarl Possinger

Sensei Jan -- Two challenges and one of them was 21 pts DC?  Maybe legal, but...
expect the same in return. -- Baphomet

SCOMSS Swamp -- Art Pendragon (LU), 11(1)-21-7-13-16(1)-7-11, MA/INI, AE/ATT & DEF,
HI/HI-LO.  Yep...a real live tank!  Inspired by Pagan and Rascally Rabbit.  And...the
21 CN?  Came that way. -- Baphomet

Raven -- I almost puked when I found out!  And to think, you were impersonating a
female!  AARRGGHH!  (grin) -- Baphomet

Suicide -- Soon as I can get set up...I'll drop you a snail mail. -- Baphomet

Liam -- At present dude...I can actually *SEE* freedom.  My address has changed as
well.  I'll be in touch. -- Baphomet

Toker -- Dude...you wouldn't believe how I've been blessed! -- Baphomet

Snarky -- Sorry...needed an easy win to graduate Art. -- Baphomet

Var -- Not what I had planned.  Frog mashed Spectra in the mail-in and though it
might happen again, my deepest apologies. -- Liam the Goth

Freeborn -- Well I was at 2-7-3 (R) my fav's. -- Spectre

Suicide -- I'm not 'here' in the swamp, in the spirit world fighting the Folstrom
with Uncle Wolf.  Zoey is here in my place. -- Liam

Baphomet -- Cool.  I'll be in two wars in different arenas for a long time, helping a
very close friend.  As you know I have allies outside of the company. -- Liam

Hammer -- The four arenas are 8, 28, 31 and 47 not 18. -- Liam, Acolytes of Ahringol

Forg Denion -- A sad loss.  Rest well. -- Spectre

Madame B. -- Nice. -- Rigormortis

Znev Oweys -- Take care of my undead.  See you in Chimlevtal. -- Nomad

X-SHC -- Alright you guys are good.  I just want to know...who is who?  Especially
the Historian, who's been monkey stomping my team. -- Buddy Lee

Bap -- What is that supposed to mean!  No more Turf?  Let me know what's up. -- Buddy
Lee

Suicide -- Glad you are back!  Hope you consider using Liam's advice.  Great
spotlight!  Smash!  Bang!  Slam! -- Buddy Lee

Chaotix -- I didn't even know Anvil Hunter was dead!  Guess he won't be hunting
anymore.  Anyway his #'s are 7-3-17-15-15-10-17 AB, grt dam, poor end.  Was a good
farreter for the team. -- Buddy Lee
P.S.  Chao Boast!  You the man!  But you know the deal...BF is coming.  Bash!

Snark comments! -- Try the video game. -- Buddy Lee

Magic Wand -- Truly you are magical.  Thanks for the burn I need. -- Jade Falcon

All -- I don't know how many more turns we have but it's almost at its end.  Go for
Hail Mary! -- Buddy Lee

Just Jack -- Congratulations SCOMSS Swamp and SCOMS Tower Duelmaster. -- Oz The All
Praising

Rigormortis -- That hurt!  You are much more lively than your name implies. -- Magic
Wand

Raven -- What a wonderful, exquisite, forward thinking strategy!  Disposing of
Tarantella to a Turf War non-entry, thereby sealing a team victory!  Wow!  Did
Manager suggest that to you? -- Oz The All Amazed

Tripwire -- We cannot ignore you.  You are too cool.  Welcome back to The Swamp. --
Oz The All Welcoming

Jack McFarland -- What can I say but "Bah"? -- Humbug

Well, Humbug, you could say, "Thanks for the opportunity to battle you for
Duelmaster.  Congratulations on the win.  You are my better." -- Oz The All Helpful

Swamp Trap Hammer -- I think it must have something to do with BA coming before SL in
the alphabet.  I'd like to think I am in your class, but.... -- Fighting Tree

Snark -- Why thank you. -- Oz The All Thankful

Maximillian -- Why are you allowing Zalgor Prigg to manage your team?  Have you given
up all hope? -- Oz The All Humorous

Luciferette -- What a pretty name.  You fought like a demon, so I wonder if you are
related to either the Wicked Witch of The East or West? -- King Of Beasts

Baphomet -- A salute to you.  Make the most of your new life style. -- Oz The All
Pleased

Bexar -- It was my pleasure, "big" guy. -- BOQ

Where, oh where is our mighty SCOMSS Swamp TC Tarantella?  Just like a FONZer to
leave us all in a lurch. -- Oz The Laughing All The Way To The Bank

Barnabas -- Let me just say "YOU ARE THE MAN!" -- Oz The All Praising

Raven -- Thanks, so far so good (although now I'm sure you've totally jinxed me, so
thanks a lot! :)).  Per the FONZ oath of loyalty, I came here to try to blind-side
Soultaker (always a fun & engaging proposition in it of itself), only to completely
bungle it up as usual.  You see up until last turn, I didn't realize he ran Old
Habits instead of Lost Souls.  But for the time being I'm planning on staying in
college and won't go pro. -- U of Nuln

Sister Marykate -- My, that was a strange bloodlust in your eyes, Sister.  Kind of,
uh, satanic dare I say?  I'll um, be going now. -- Bob's Comic Collection
P.S.  Ohhhh, so that's what that inverted pentagram/goat-head in the middle of your
wimple meant.

Dark Pinnacle -- My condolences for your loss.  I won't be sitting out if it's
revenge you seek. -- Pizza Pie Party

FULLBOTL -- Thanks.  I saved it just for you. -- Frizodo

FULLBOTL -- An excellent shanking, sir.  I suppose this is the point where I'm
supposed to say "Yes sir, may I have another?" -- Stuff
P.S.  Would it help if I said I was sorry?

Justice For All -- Great fight!  I'll be saving an avoid for you down the road, fer
sho'. -- My Sleep

Seige Beast -- I know.  Fighting me is like watching "My Dinner with Andre" with the
sound turned off. -- My Pillow

Medee -- Has the fat lady sung yet?  I'm thinking we've hit the end of a 10 round
title bout. -- Don King

Spectre -- Remind us not to do that again.  You never let up. -- Jack & Jill

Avatar of Woe -- Hate blind challenges.  I wish the boss would ease up in his quest
for knowledge. -- Ten Is Raquet

Tempus -- Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! -- Drama Queen

Lotus Blossom -- I prefer Crouching Kitten, Hidden Platypus myself. -- Bullpen Ace

Jack & Jill -- If you would have noticed both of my victories and kills came from the
dark arena, I am however aware of high the rankings it puts me.  Could be why
Barnabas is trying me back there for a third kill. -- Stag

Little Big Man -- Solid Brass, is that why they hurt all the time? -- Stag

Tarantella -- Well old boy, looks like you ran into the wrong random match-up this
time.  May the big sky above be good to you. -- B.B. Cross

Python -- Not bad for a novice fight, was one of the better ones of the night I bet.
-- Busted Wing

Swamp Hammer -- Sorry Lily, but there you were just sitting there. -- Minor Blue

All -- Art Pendragon (LU):  11(1)-21-7-13-16(1)-7-11, GRT END, GD DMG, HI/HI, LO.  My
first graduated LUer and a design that was inspired by Pagan and Rascally Rabbit.
The 21 CN?  Came with it! -- Baphomet

Jan -- Obviously, you've decided you want some special attention from my team since
you've been making it a point to DC on them the past few turns.  Don't try to play me
like you did others.  Capice? -- Baphomet

Snarky -- Some of us get a kick out of life.  Glad you've got a sense of humour. --
Baphomet
P.S.  Actually...I like Rippers.

Maximimillian -- I wasn't condescending to V.C.  There are a few of you guys who are
pretty good folks.  But...I'll not allow anyone to talk down to my allies either.
I'm sure you can understand that.  Nor do I tolerate buttheads. -- Baphomet

White Settler -- Looking forward to it...come to Crysalis. -- Art

Mannequin -- Thanks!  Appreciated.  Looking forward to meeting some of you guys in
the near future. -- Baphomet

Hammer -- Easy brother...easy! -- Baphomet

Crypt Angel -- Now...guess I stepped up just a mite too fast. -- Roger L'Veau

Sheris Liaday -- Snicker...almost. -- Galius

Paul Bearer -- Now, bet ya thought I didn't know that trick, eh? -- Ahura Mazda

Sister Mary Sarah -- Figures...my nemesis. -- Art Pendragon

Ichoicd -- Sometimes, a little surprise is in order. -- Etienne Duplaix

Liam and others -- Will try to get back into the game after the October mail-in.  You
know stuff happens and then it takes time to recover.  Fight on. -- Sir Chester

All -- Enjoyed everything about this game and each one of you.  I thank you for any
and all help you have extended to me.  Will attempt to make a return in the future so
you all may get some more easy wins from my stable.  *smile* -- Sir Chester

Raven -- Thanks, it's been fun.  You guys are great! -- Liam the Goth

Phat Phat -- Good to see you again. -- Liam

Maximillian -- Cool. -- Liam

Tripwire -- Hard not to ignore you.  You're cool without trying. -- Liam

Var -- Spectre will be back for the bloodfeud after the mailer. -- Liam

Hammer -- Hey when you can, the Lord's work is a might thing indeed. -- Liam

Roger L'Beau -- I see you and your teammates made it, but where is my brother, your
manager? -- Liam

Magic Wand -- Nice.  Wish you would have been a better teacher. -- Rigor

Jack & Jill -- Wow.  Nice fight.  I was set up for a bloodfeud.  See you soon. --
Spectre

Suicide -- And where were you? -- Liam

Toker -- By your lonesome? -- Liam

Gangsta Creep -- Just wanted to say hi. -- Opai

Chaos Boast -- What, no skills.  You X'ers are stingy with those skills. -- Blood
Rayne

So will there be a Swampfest IV or will it there be TW5?  Only the gods know the
answer...or do they? -- Liam

Tarantella -- You walk the lands of ghosts and faded memories, of eternal fog and
overcast gloom, cloaked in the cold of your lost dreams. -- Liam

Manager of the Serpents -- I don't know who you are, but you're about to find out
about me! -- Tarl Possinger

Snark -- Thanks.  Now what happened?  Where's North Fork, and Duel II instead of
Duelmasters?  Just wondering. -- Coyote, mgr. Warhammers (75)
P.S.  And confused.

B.B. Cross -- You do indeed gain bragging rights.  I hope I'll make you swallow them.
-- Eviscerator

X-Syndicate -- Congratulations on your various successes.  The morality may be
questionable but the results are there.  Our own results, although poor, gave me lots
of enjoyment anyway.  March on! -- Blackstorm

Shwarzsnark -- AAAAA!! (all the way to see Ahringol) -- ORAGE NOIR
P.S.  His last stash was lethal!

Liam -- Hi there, friend.  Hey don't worry about me "stormy" temper.  It usually
leaves as fast as it came.  I know you are a fair and "honorable" manager.  I, as
well as many, believe of W/L record or number of matches.  Some "difficult" warriors
may have more fights but very few skills.  Some may just have had bad luck.  In
either case it's either risky or rude to challenge lower than thou.  Great luck. --
Blackstorm
P.S.  Welcome over in 8.

Appius -- Stop, you'll embarrass me.  I'm not that good. -- B. Thunder

Zombie Assassin -- Nicely fought.  A bit low strung however. -- Thunder

Swamp Burp Hammer -- ?  Interesting approach for one of your style.  Whatever works.
Well done. -- Eviscerator

Bob's Comics -- My manager game me some "Crazy Pills."  Man are they somfin' ghaaaa
heh heh heh. -- Freeborn Bloodblade

Trilla lilleir -- Stench got to you huh?  When you passed out I took your money
pouch.  Ha ha. -- Swamp Storm

Kyevera luerten -- Oww.  That was nasty. -- Vallhalan

Max -- O.K.  Just trying to hold the peace.  I didn't want it to get into one of
those "gang up" affairs.  I do have a stormy temper, but usually subsides fast enough
as you should know by now.  Let's just call this "water under the bridge."  Good
luck. -- Blackstorm

Tripwire -- Hi, don't see you.  Good preparing. -- Blackstorm

Warhammers -- Wow, welcome back.  A few of us older teams have been popping back. --
Blackstorm of BLACK STORM (171)

Xerxes -- You're a number!  Only 15 minutes.  Better luck. -- B-Thunder

Devout Christian -- Almost had me worried.  Just glad you didn't try to convert me or
something. -- Eviscerator

Parakeet -- I have been on a bit of a rampage of late.  Get well soon. -- Freeborn
Bloodblade

Darkholm -- Thanks for the swiss cheese look.  Ow.  Glad I was able to cut you up a
bit too.  Later. -- Swamp Storm

Snake -- Well fought. -- Vallhalan

SNARKulator -- we did hand 'em a 12-8-0 the last two turns!  Better late than never
as they say. -- Blackstorm
P.S.  YES on "chickened out."
      YES on "PR."
      YES on "Snarky for President" (!?)
P.P.S.  Where the hell is Heathen?

Oz -- Howdy.  I know I could push you off!!  Just untighten your fingers a bit.  An
honor to share top spot! -- Blackstorm

All -- It seems that the Troll Patrol has stopped all RSI mail from coming in so for
that I am pulling out.  Do not think you have heard the last of this demon though.
I, along with others, are fighting this, so hopefully I will get the things you sent
and will be able to respond.
     For all that have helped me along the way, thank you.  I got plenty of good
advice from a lot of great managers.  Some I even met in person, though we weren't
always on the same side.  (grin)
     I take the criticism in stride.  Don't dish it out if you can't take it.  Plus
it helps with new comebacks.  Even though once in a great while I will have to ponder
on my response, it is usually worth it.
     So in this respect I say farewell, but I shall be back.  I will let my presence
be known when I do get back to the sands.  Remember, Fire & Brimstone Forever! --
Suicide

Chaotix Beast -- North's Fork is a big boot labeled:  "CAUTION:  Wild Load," eh? --
SNARKoah..."by 47 cubits"

Acura Honda -- Thanks, but the throne wasn't all that.  And then some dirty dog came
along, lifted his drunken leg and... -- SNARKed all over

Too bad Tripwire's warriors aren't here...

Bye, you bayou!  Raven's roost:  a jungle!  (...please?)

Mishima -- (a full minute after your decisive victory and departure...)  Huh?  Uhh...
oh, come in, the door's open... -- CUMTOLUMP*Scum*

(He doesn't get it:  "Why's a helm the best thing since sliced "H"ead, Snarky?")

Suiside, (are you sitting down?) -- Your score qualifies you for TATIOAHC.

Caesar -- You were too hotly engaged
          making out with the skills
          for which you greedily came.
          All the same...BOMBADIL, fiddling off to A.D. while you smolder...

Bapho, I beg to differ -- It is no coincidence Oz has low kill ratio, for example.
Nay, I say, it is sheer bloodthirstiness and premeditated managerial intent (kill
desires, warrior designs, weapon selection) that has bloodied Freedonia, highest kill
ratios in the land. -- SNARKpointthirsty, "ice-bag manager"

..."for Jack's a jolly good Banana!  Just Jack's a jolly good Duelmaster."

Blackstorm on the Move! -- And proud you must be to have received the coveted "(-1)"
award?! -- SNARKkin (ED, can a histamine 'splain that?)

     Some of 'em might be able to, mine can't. -- Ed.

Minstrels -- Glad you're here!  Ah 1-4?  Well, as the bard sings, "Therein lies the
rub." -- SNARKinsideman

Stuff -- Buck it up. -- Fullbottleinfrontofme

Ahhhh Liam -- "to be a great lover of bashers, and yet be repulsive to the style, a
paradox by which great managers are made." -- SNARKwakin'

Mr. Miso Mute -- *I* hear you. -- CUMTOLUMPSCUM, coming for you...

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
