                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hey, Plagues!  What's up, why no DM column.  You do realize that writing a
column alone may have saved your bacon and kept you on the throne for an extra turn.
Oh well, c'est la vie.
     I'm actually surprised to have received my invite last turn.  13-5 in the arena,
4 time duelmaster, adepts class tournament victor, plus a 7-3 in a novices (I think)
tourney early on.  That's 29 FE, a little light to be receiving a sub 20 arena fight
invite, I do believe.  But my results here have been good.  Masters in Attack and
Decise, with Experts in Initiative, Defence and Riposte.  65 skills learned, for 114
(assuming mode parry) total skills.  My actual numbers are 10-10-10-17-10-10-17.
Guess what numbers I recommend when designing warriors!  Favourites are Battle Axe,
Moderate/Low, and learning attack skills.  Never really had the strength to test out
the Battle Axe, so I'm not sure how it will work.
     A final "Word" before I depart.  When Crip sent my roll-up for creation a couple
of years ago, I was actually given the name "Microsoft Turd" but RSI censored that,
so I have been pulling the artistic thing and identify myself with a single name.
Much more monopolistic that way.

4 Time Duelmaster of Trocar
Useless Tool

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TROCAR.  Like, USELESS TOOLS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by PLAGUES!  Way to go PLAGUES!  
KATHOUSE like really fought hard to move up to 4th from 7th.  Way to go!  What was 
the name of that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 45-45-0 you ask?  (Sure)  
PLAGUES' their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for KILLER BEE?  PLAGUES' 
proud of him after beating MOUSETRAP and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  MOUSETRAP's match with KILLER BEE cost it a loss of 10 points!  The 
Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause it's Number One!  CONJURED DEMON knows 
this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  The crowds were amazed this 
turn, as CONJURED DEMON killed the Duelmaster, MICROSOFT, leaving USELESS TOOLS in 
mourning.  A.O. HELL gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean people might 
try to kill it, too?  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of RUNNING AMOK must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are PLAGUES?  RUNNING AMOK, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!  Can TRADERS OF TROCAR's CERISA be more popular 
than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't 
believe how many people were snickering when A.O. HELL killed SILVERBOLT.  So he had 
a 10-8-0, that's no excuse!  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be 
out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Cerisa -- I've been trying to grab your cherry, but I just can't seem to hold on
right. -- No-Stick Tape

Silverbolt -- Nice challenge, but I still hold the lifetime edge. -- Mousetrap

Lawyer -- Darn early invite.  We were going to try and graduate all 5 tools on the
same turn, but you seem to have found the loophole, and now we can't go back and set
things right. -- Microsoft

In-Laws -- Key Word Annoyingpeople. -- A.O. Hell

No Stick Tape -- How very sad.  I taught you six skills, the maximum possible, but
with your no-stick form of attachment, they got away from you again.  I weep for you
(pass me that onion, please), I deeply regret your loss. -- Cerisa

Locust -- (crossly)  I could have SWORN you were a tree, a thorny, weedy sort of
water-stealing tree, but they tell me you're actually a bug.  So I got this stuff
that works against everything from August Bugs to Ferencian Beetles to Zukalfish.
And it didn't stop you!  I think you ARE a tree, just pretending to be a bug. --
Daroshtan the fairly disgusted

Fireaunt -- I should have learned more from you.  Why did you withhold your skills?
It was one of those family things, wasn't it?  All my aunts hate me, you know.  Or
maybe it was the armor blocking transmission.... -- Viret

Killer Bee -- Your manager seems to have a bug fixation.  There are lots of OTHER
kinds of plagues, you know.  I'd have the bug thing checked on, if I were you.  It
could be a sign of something Even Worse. -- Wimperetta
P.S.  Biting bugs is useless.  They are not good sources of blood.

Katrine -- I, er, have a problem with hitting cute little ladies.  But not to worry,
your actions in this fight were so un-cute that I may be able to over come that early
training if we meet again.  Or maybe not, of course.  One never knows with things
like that. -- Palladiarum

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet

                            Invitation to Newbie Managers
                                 by Hammer

     As a Captain of the Vendetta Cartel, Hammer has recently dissolved the Vendetta
Cartel Crimson Ascension Family.  Lady Martilyo and Rook are NO LONGER members of the
Vendetta Cartel.
     The Vendetta Cartel is divided into "Families" under the leadership of Captains;
who have been appointed by the VC God Father known throughout the dueling land as
Master Darque.
     Hammer is now the Captain of the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe and the veteran
manager extends an invitation for prospective membership as a Probate [ONLY 2 Probate
positions are available in the VC Tarantula Tribe at the present time!] to any Newbie
Manager who qualifies under the following conditions:
     1. Newbie Manager MUST have Online Access for Email communications!  [Hammer is
presently living in Qatar and Lieutenants Maximillian and Firehawk are living in
Canada; so Email Communication is a MUST for consideration!]
     2. Newbie Manager MUST have the time and funds to create 2 new stables to be
placed in 2 separate Slow Arenas [the cost of running 1 stable in a Regular Arena!]
to actively participate on a monthly basis with the other 3 T-Tribe members of the
Vendetta Cartel!
     3. Newbie Manager MUST have the DESIRE to be an Active Member of the Vendetta
Cartel as a Tarantula Tribe trainee aka Probate; developing his/her managerial skills
under the mentorship of Hammer and the other VC members; thus proving themselves
worthy to become Vendetta Cartel Lieutenants in the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe!
     The Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe lives by the Feud; thereby prospective
Probates are forewarned that membership guarantees instant Friends and instant
Enemies!
     Any prospective Probates who 1.) seek to improve their managerial
insights/abilities under the counsel of Hammer and other Vendetta Cartel members 2.)
desire to be active members of an Active Alliance that WILL NOT Dissolve in a Few
Months; building lasting friendships while enjoying Feuding with Common Enemies 3.)
who enjoy sending their gladiators to Tournaments and would strive to see their
manager name listed among the TV and TC winners in the Mailer Tourney Newsletters as
a member of the Vendetta Cartel MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
     Send an Email to HammerDM@fastermail.com to introduce yourself and provide
Hammer with a short Bio of your managerial successes/failures and favorite/least
favorite fighting styles; with a listing of your active stable/stables for Hammer to
verify in the online newsletters.
     Hammer will choose the 2 prospective Probates for membership in the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe on the basis of who he decides will be most suited [to
Hammer's purposes as the T-Tribe Captain!] from among those responding to this All
Arena Ad on a first response/first acceptance or rejection basis!
     -- Hammer; Vendetta Cartel Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
