                          Introduction of Juggalo Rydaz

     You can see it from your window, from the distance you can make out the Carnival
tents rising outside the city of Mordant.  You can hear the clanking of hammers and
the sounds of animals moving about.  You can hear the tents and flags rustiling in
the wind.  The oddest thing is that though you hae watched the progress for hours,
you have yet to hear a voice or shout--not even a whistle!  It's almost as if this
Dark Carnival were setting itself up by itself!
     I am the Ringmaster, we are possessed with the spirit of what is known as the
Dark Carnival.  It is anentity that exists on the fringe of reality in the darkest
shadows that creep across the land when the sun sets and darkness takes hold.  It is
the very reason why men fear the night.  It is the untimate demise that will befall
mankind when the end time comes and its wagons begin to tread across the land.
     Our purpose here is to cut off the bad seeds of evil before they can spread
their disease to others.  When people are so far from purity that there is no hope to
save their souls, we destroy them.  The truly evil can cause a great deal of damage
here by corrupting others around them and infuencing them to live a life of
Damnation.  Wer are not saints, angels or preachers, but we are executioners of evil.
We end life to preserve the life worth saving.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm surprised I won again.  After all, the Boss Man is back manipulating me
around and who knows what that means?
     I guess he got tired of Consulting; either that, or he took all their cash?  I
wonder.  He looks a lot fatter.
     As for me, I guess I have to have 20 fights to graduate; that means next time I
am a Lord Protector, the gods willing me to live.  I guess those 12 tourney FE are
meaningless, although I have a heck of a lot more skills that a typical TP of my age.
(a master, an adex, and a couple of experts)
     So, come and get me, I guess; just don't kill me.
                    Travel (with lots more Delta miles and Carlson points nowadays)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MORYA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
GHOSTWALKERS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 13th.  MEAN PEOPLE stable 
has parlayed this turn's 3-2-2 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them 
up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  On their very first turn, THE ANIMANIACS had a 
5-0-1, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to MORYA.  And 
let's see, SID SICKLE fought SLINGER and gained 22 points and contributed to MEAN 
PEOPLE's 3-2-2.  URANUS has lost to WICKER GREMLIN, falling 16 points, while helping 
make PLANETS a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
TRAVEL remains MORYA's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for 
me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Salty's Chowder 
House until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the EXPENSE ACCOUNT 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on MORYA, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided EXPENSE ACCOUNT stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
LORDS OF DISCIPLINE.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that KLYDE 
SPECTRE from MEAN PEOPLE was MORYA's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  DODGE BULLETS has lost SLINGER to the arena in the sky, but they 
don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 5-6-2?  We'd like to remind 
certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's 
considered rude.   
     I like this place, MORYA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MORYA and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in MORYA again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Pop Target -- I had the most pop and you were my target, I traveled home. -- Travel,
Expense Accounts

Venus and Jupiter -- You are not planets; rather, you are cretins! -- Accrued
Interest and Prepaid Expense, Expense Accounts

I'm baaaaaaack! -- Finance Manager, Expense Accounts
P.S.  Did a little flip-flopping with the budgets and here I am.

Congrats to Lord Of Discipline and Mean People on their 40+ point gains.  Or, are
they the same mean discipliners? -- Finance Manager

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  EBITDA. -- Finance Manager

Arena Scribe drank too much last turn:  Unchartered Recognition Leader shoulda been
Klyde Spectre, and Unchartered Team shoulda been Mean People. -- Staff

Yep, Pluto's an asteroid.

Match -- I believe you'll think twice before again raising your hand against me. --
Wise

Big Guy, Big Gut -- Two totally different people.

Kara No Tani -- Was that just coincidence that four of yours fought my four? -- G
Staff

Wicker is the new black.

Travel -- Wow, what's your secret?

All -- Goodbye.  I thank those who congratulated me.  Longshot, the answer to your
question is, my business is my business. -- Mercury

Accrued Interest -- Our match was interesting.  While the Finance Manager is
distracted by other interests, it gives accrued interests that have been suppressed
under his watch the opportunity to be pursued.  I am confident he means well. --
Venus

Big Gut -- Snide Clemens was not impressed by our match.  Maybe you were: it was one-
sided. Of course, I have nearly twice the experience, based on our arena records. --
Uranus

Finance Manager -- Thanks for sharing your view on KDs with the rest of us. --
Stargazer

G. Debtor, G Staff -- I am not sure who you are.  I assume you two are the same
person.  I think you are associated with the Staff of Life.  Part of Venus's personal
ad was a quote. -- Stargazer, Manager of Planets

Prepaid Expense -- After losing to Consultation, maybe you were the consolation
match.  It was exciting. -- Jupiter

Water Rat -- A previous personal ad should have said "You must hit hard" and not "You
just hit hard."  You obviously have ability. -- Pluto

     That's a typo that's impossible to catch.  Sorry.

Wannabe Planet -- I bet you didn't see that coming. -- Water Rat

The overworked Expense Account Personal Assistant -- Does that mean the Finance
Manager is bringing us all souvenirs?  I know Big Guy Jackie would love a pair of
Mickey Mouse ears. -- Longshot

Storm Warning -- ...! ...! -- Mongo Crush

Stargazer -- What? -- Water Rat

Slinger -- You pretty tough.  You didna cry or nuffin when I hit you. -- Jackie

Captured Orc -- I was really going for a kill.  I just detest orcs.  The uncouth lot
that you are. -- Wicker Gremlin

Nogunada San -- Berwip crawna-wi pinibon. -- Longshot

Sid Sickle -- That is no way to treat a lady. -- Marinn Bleu

Travel -- Not so lucky as I am.  Lord Protector!  Who'da thunk it? -- Pop Target

Flint -- I salute your guts, but not your common sense.  Which is uncommon, anyway,
now I think about it.  Sense.  Uncommon.  I don't have any, so I'm at the
questionable mercy of my manager. -- Lucky Lookie

Travel -- That's how it goes: travel is exhausting, and it gets more so the older the
traveler gets. -- Pop Target

Mongo Crush -- Ah, but wait till the storm sneaks up on you, and you all unwarned! --
Storm Warning

Big Guy Jackie -- That's got to be unfair somehow.  I mean, trolls... even their bare
skin is stronger than leather armor! -- Slinger

Swindler Stang -- Definitely mean. -- Myron Mei

Longshot -- People are getting ready for the contest that Street Legal has said he is
going to run.  My own squad is slowly shaping up. -- Assur

Uranus -- Not a place I want to visit.  I prefer my couch, munching on snacks. -- Big
Gut

                 NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENA (DM 85)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Effective immediately, any 
teams placed in DM 85 and not transferred out to another arena, will be automatically 
deleted a month after the tournament.  If you have questions about any of your teams, 
please contact Customer Service. -- RSI 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $149.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI.

Please make your reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

Look for the tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope 
you're all looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
