                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

I just want to know how come Scommss been at me like crazy yet I can't get a
challenge through to them?  Hmmmm?  Something smells Fishy and I don't think it's the
Greek Guy.

Pizza Pie Party that took some mighty crunchy nuts, thanks for the skills.

Great strategizing by Scomss well oiled machine.  Now if you could just put that
energy into maybe the other alliances I'll be all right.

                        Duelmistress,
                           Opai

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DOUBLE-X games.  I have begun to suspect trickery on 
the part of EMPIRE RISING.  How else weeks like this one's 5-0-0?  How else the 
sudden move to 11th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
LOST SOULS' team record!  A 3-2-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 21st place ranking.  
My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This 
week MYSTIC ORC FEAST went 1-2-0 and fell 19 notches into 23rd!  I have begun to 
suspect trickery on the part of OBSCURE LEGENDS.  How else weeks like this one's 
3-2-0?  How else the sudden move to 25th team?  SALEM'S LOT bore the brunt of major 
assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 32nd position as the result 
of going 1-2-0!  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the 
harder you fall.  This week ABYSMAL RITES went 0-4-0 and fell 19 notches into 39th!  
Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which ROYAL FLUSH managed to post this round?  
I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  SLUGBAIT caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KING OF BEASTS and was 
awarded 29 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SISTER 
SAM put down SS GUARD, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  
This time out PROHIBITION made his bid for the throne as he challenged OPAI in an all 
out contest of skill for possession of the title!  Not for nothing has OPAI in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat 
skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in DOUBLE-X seem 
to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DOUBLE-X.  DOUBLE-X, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is RONIN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of OF WOLF AND MAN are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after NILES. 
Watch your back!  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of hers 
heart.  True, ROISIN DUBH?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of SISTER SLEDGE?  
The Fates are not kind to the cowardly, as evidenced by the  fact that ROISIN DUBH 
was beat by SISTER SLEDGE.  And who can now doubt that SISTER SLEDGE is a hardy 
opponent?  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, 
gladiators, how HUMBUG of LAND OF OZ challenged down 25 points to MEDEE.  The weight 
of the challenge fell hard upon MEDEE and predictably he was overcame by HUMBUG.  
This is how to arouse the anger of an entire guild!  Give LADY PERI credit for hers 
courage.  Did you note how she challenged NILES despite the 27 point difference in 
their rankings?  In the end LADY PERI was beat by NILES, a "sharp" reminder that 
higher recognition is an indication of greater skill.  Still, it was a worthy bout!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  
WOZZECK has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  This week marked 
the last days of BREMM SPARKFIST who at 6-8-0 was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the 
command of BAAL'S MINIONS' demanding management.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week ROGER L'BEAU, at 6-8-0, 
departed DOUBLE-X forever.  I must report the passing of KING OF BEASTS, veteran of 
many duels.  8-6-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no 
favorites.  Cruelly, KILLING JOKE of INDIFFERENCE has slain the lesser ranked 
PILSNER.  Word already flies around town that STRANGE BREW plans a bloodfeud!  Death 
has again visited the sands of our arena.  SLUGBAIT has claimed the life of KING OF 
BEASTS.  Do any doubt that LAND OF OZ will seek a bloody revenge?  Must the anguished 
spirit of BANE toss forever in the grave unrevenged?  Against the code, COURT JESTER 
has escaped its deed unpunished by KNIGHTS TEMPLAR!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She 
showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember 
this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DOUBLE-X.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can 
I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Congratulations to Opai, Duelmaster of SCOMSS Swamp. -- Oz The All Jealous

Don King and Crip -- Well done.  We are now believers.  Salute. -- Oz The All
Praising

Mannequin -- Two SCOMSS Swamp TV's!  You da man! -- Oz The All Excited

Killing Joke -- You must be a joke as I am the winner.  This is really, really fun.
-- BOQ

Sister Mary Sarah -- No fair!  Despite my grumpiness, you know I could never hurt a
Nun.  Unfair, I say!  Bah! -- Humbug

High Test -- You got too many miles to the gallon to suit me.  Pshew!  I'm tired! --
Miss Gulch

Black Lotus -- A wand in the hand is worth two in the lotus bush. -- Magic Wand

Flesh Hunter -- It was your turn. -- King of Beasts

Fellowship Of The SCOMSS -- I salute your past turn.  Tanks for taking me along for
the ride. -- Oz The All Humble

DK Don -- Your words against Baphomet were the mere whine of those losing in anguish.
I shall pray for your soul, you cad. -- Oz The All Magnanimous

Rookie Confederation -- Sorry for last turn it was a pretty sad effort on my part.
But this turn is bound to be just as ugly for me so I am gonna apologize now. --
Wretch

All -- R.I.P. Hops.  He went to represent our fine arena in the tourney and was
butchered on the first turn.  So goes a fine 21 WT striker.  :( -- Wretch

Miss Gulch -- It wasn't pretty but a win is a win. -- High Test

Norm -- You move pretty fast for a fat guy that sits on a bar stool all day.  Nice
effort. -- Malt

Last Call -- I see by your attire that you weren't just coming for a win.  I wasn't
even supposed to fight but that damn maintenance thing dragged me in.  I guess I
shall be awaiting whoever else your stable sends to kill me this turn.  Luck to me,
broken swords to you -- Pilsner

All -- I will no longer be allowed to give easy victories to the arena.  The boss has
decide to send me on vacation permanently.  Isn't he a nice guy? -- Ale

Thrusher -- You got the last win off me, congrats to you. -- Ale

TW Host -- Blackstorm is no longer a member of the Desolate Empire--please remove him
from our roll call. -- Dark Knight Kon, DEA

Goat -- You seem to be propping us up--excellent turn Bruder!  I'll get it all
together eventually.  You just keep up the good work! -- DK Kon

All -- A sad loss for our stable at the mail-in:  Heir Apparent was 13(1)-5-7-17-15-
7-21.  My favorite AB design ever! -- DK Kon

Antoine L'Joi -- You lose! -- Court Jester, the Hand of Death

Baphomet -- Three down...who's next?  If by sandbagging you mean Court Jester has a
high FE you're wrong again!  5-1-3 and fought Initiates in the mail-in doesn't
support it.  Don't look for excuses for your managerial deficiencies by accusing
someone else of stacking the deck!  You obviously are just a below average manager.
-- Dark Knight Kon, DEA

Drake -- Any of Baphomet's warriors. -- Dark Knight Kon

To Whom it May Concern (mainly those who don't have internet access)...as of the 2nd
turn, Tripwire has agreed (and the managers I was able to pool) to take on the
scoring for the Turf War due to many personal issues I've come up against...mainly...
paralysis, deaths in the family, getting married, moving to another state, going back
to work (even though the doctors told me not to)...etc....so, now everyone is aware
of what is going on.  Scoring has been sent in...it's the best we can do. -- Baphomet

Baphomet -- Now that Don King is out of the way, I'll declare The Lion King to be the
new Champion for Royal Flush. -- Crip

Roisin Dubh -- You seem to have developed into a multipurpose talent. -- Drama Queen

Malaria -- The vaccination usually makes me feel quite ill, but it this case, it was
worth it. -- Bullpen Ace

Medee -- OK, so where are our skills. -- Jack & Jill

Devout Christian -- The MUGs must have been on your side.  I'd like to call a let
please. -- Ten Is Raquet

Father O'Malley -- You are the 2nd worst downchallenger I've ever seen in this game.
You should compare your upchallenge record with your downchallenge one, I bet your
downchallenge one is way worse. -- Manager

Swamp Citizens -- My Stable was supposed to be activated this cycle!  If not then
more money saved and 0 points deducted for Swamp Syndicate from my Stable! -- Hammer/
Minister of War

Claryon -- You talk more than you swing.  Oh, what's that you say?  You only made ONE
comment during our fight?  :) -- Nessman

Irwin Rommel -- I'm the only hero any woman needs. -- Puddy

Lonely Son -- Now that felt GOOD!! -- Barbarino

Roger L'Beau -- Anyone named LeBeau can't be that good....  :) -- Jethro

Lurking Fear -- I think your strategy would have worked if you were 7 feet tall. --
Niles

Mad Max -- The only inside information that you had that was correct was my being
blinded by Soultaker's dome.  He's been gleaming brightly ever since OZ and I got him
off the TC schneid.... -- Mannequin

I guess those skills I applied to Jethro paid off during the tourney!  Congrats to
North Fork's TVs:  Barbarino, Jethro, Smokescreen & Hammer (who were all,
interestingly enough, Initiates). -- Mannequin

Oz -- Well the results are indisputable!  Nice strategy! -- Kat

Max, Angus, Drake, and Darque -- Ugh.  The 'Paw is certainly in a downswing period.
My apologies.  Once the RUGS decide to play fair, things should turn around--though I
feel it may be a little too late. -- Kat

BEXAR was vanquished by ASP?  That wasn't the way I had it planned.... -- Kat

Rhiannon -- I really do like Ms. Nick's singing your praises, but I think you need a
little Soul Sister-Soul Sister.  Just let me know when you want some more one on one
Motown gospel lessons. -- Sister Sledge

Blackened -- Imagine my surprise when you were able to resist my efforts of bringing
you to the light and true belief.  I have spent many hours in contemplation trying
to ensure the next time I will be able to drive home my message. -- Sister Mercy

Madame Butterfly -- Yer professhun is an abominashun t'th' enlightenment of th'
masses. ah had hoped t'git mah point acrost but alas ah failed, cuss it all t'
tarnation. ah will corntinue t'press fo' higher quality intertainment. -- Sister

wholesome wawks sech as; Annie getcher Gun, Seven Brides fo' Seven Brothers, Jesus
Jedt Superstar.

Humbug -- I must confess that I spent many hours in the confessional after spending
my time with you.  As much as I tried to keep you at bay, I had to fight very hard
to keep from dropping my defenses.  I still have dreams at night of you lunging at
me with that long pointy weapon of yours.  There I go again.  Another 30 Hail Marys.
-- Sister Mary Sarah

Tripwire -- May I say now how bad I feel for that unfortunate incident between
myself and Samglant.  He seemed like such a nice young man.  I really feel that you
are to blame for his demise though.  Having never met the young man, I had no idea
to his beliefs, but I walked onto the sands enraged just by knowing you trained him.
I was sure he was just another D'Larq scum.  Like the rest of your ilk; low-life,
slave trading, trash talking, down-challenging Delarquan.  I will light a candle for
him and pray for his deliverance. -- Sister Sam

Tripwire -- Please excuse the passion from the young Sister Sam.  I am afraid she
has listened to may wives tails.  I had to remove a copy of "Proper Etiquette of
Being a Warrior" by Adie.  I feel she has been overly influenced by cheap
propaganda.  I will talk to the Mother Superior about her misdirected fanaticism. --

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
