                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Turn 3 of the legendary Niytyole Open has completed.  Weirdo's Flirt with Dirt squad 
scored the highest last turn, his 5-0 accounting for 10 of his 15 points.  Quite an 
accomplishment for a cripple.  Presstone and his 4-1 along with his Stylemasters gave 
him a nice gain which launched him into a third place tie with Darkfart.  But, Creep 
Thought and his Fiend Folio hold their top spot.  Here is a Creepy Thought by Creep 
Thought for you; he likes to hire a babysitter, even though he does not have any kids.  
Hey, how about Dorkio going 0-5 last turn?  What an amazing specimen he is, he earned 
one loss for every pimple on his eyelid.  Doing better than Dorkio is the new team 
Turtle Cavalry who seems to be racking up wins as fast as....well...as fast as turtles 
stampeding through peanut butter.  Remember; don't forget to avenge your deaths, those 
points can add up.  Let's see what turn 4 brings to us.  Certainly it will be the turn 
that drops Creep Thought in the rankings.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly NIYTYOLE ISLAND games.  Former top team FIEND FOLIO 
was unseated this week as FLIRT WITH DIRT moved up from 7th ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-1 record for the round.  My tutors were fond of telling me that the 
higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week FIEND FOLIO went 1-4-0 and fell 11 
notches into 12th!  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week DYSTOPIAN OVERLORDS went 5-0-1 to move up 7 in the rankings.  
Did only my eyes note the 3-1-1 record which BRASH BROS XMAS managed to post this 
round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  HIJACKED RADIO 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VENGE 
and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
MASS HYPNOSIS put down PEERLESS, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the 
process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on GERELIN LOSTFIRE 
as he bore arms against the Dark Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster CHALLAH 
AKBAR.  Not for nothing has CHALLAH AKBAR in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's 
throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to 
the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his 
armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  NYE MAULERS is feared.  This much 
I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of RAVAGING LORDS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  GENDER QUESTION take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in NIYTYOLE ISLAND.  As a gladiator gets older, the icy 
grip of fear lays hold of his heart.  True, ADOLF HITLER?  Who could miss your 
"brave" challenge of OLOSIF MOONHEART?  The weight of the challenge fell hard upon 
OLOSIF MOONHEART and predictably she was beat by ADOLF HITLER.  This is how to arouse 
the anger of an entire guild!  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty 
victory.  See, gladiators, how GIBRALTAR of VICIOUS DELITE challenged down 20 points 
to SHOOTER MCGAVIN.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as SHOOTER 
MCGAVIN was overcame by GIBRALTAR.  Is this what passes for courage in NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND?  RECYCLE OVERFLOW must really be harboring a grudge against the FLIRT WITH 
DIRT guild!  Merciless, 21 challenged down RUMPLE EPIDERMIS points this week to duel 
with he.  All the city knows the duel went in favor of RECYCLE OVERFLOW.  I shall not 
fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.  As a gladiator 
gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his heart.  True, JOHN DILLINGER?  Who 
could miss your "brave" challenge of THE DENIM THIEF?  The weight of the challenge 
fell hard upon THE DENIM THIEF and predictably she lost to JOHN DILLINGER.  This is 
how to arouse the anger of an entire guild!  For some warriors honor is not 
important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how THE SAVAGE of VICIOUS DELITE 
challenged down 19 points to GENDER QUESTION.  Few would not have guessed the outcome 
of the bout as GENDER QUESTION was subdued by THE SAVAGE.  Is this what passes for 
courage in NIYTYOLE ISLAND?  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that SCURVY posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
KAIRN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand SCURVY was subdued by KAIRN.  
Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  CHALLAH AKBAR has sworn to take up 
religion upon living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare 
thing indeed!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week VENGE, at 11-8-1, departed NIYTYOLE ISLAND forever.  I 
must report the passing of ANZU, veteran of many duels.  4-5-0 final record His was 
not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  My condolences to UYPHY'S FOLLIES for 
their loss of a very promising warrior, KYLIE ST. CLAIR.  KYLIE ST. CLAIR went to 
doom before the arms of MOE, a warrior of FLIRT WITH DIRT.  Cruelly, MOE of FLIRT 
WITH DIRT has slain the lesser ranked KYLIE ST. CLAIR.  Word already flies around 
town that UYPHY'S FOLLIES plans a bloodfeud!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Ding Dong Den, we surely hope your hunting went well?  You truly needed a friend and 
those white-tails are such a cute match for you.  Good luck, too, with your mandatory 
scrimmage match thingy; it looks like it will need it. -- The Consortium Elders

Bashur -- Tag.  You're it. -- Weirdo

Kaitlyn Denner -- Baby Girl, do you really want your own PBM business that you noow 
run your own lame contest in Niytyole?  Or are you just finding another lame excuse 
just to commentate?  Happy Deer Hunting!  Hope you fall off a cliff!  Womanta, whoever 
you are, speak up for yourself, Kaitlyn Denner won't bite.  She's all bark! -- 
Scorpio, mgr War Council

question answered. -- Gateway Beast

Nidalee -- Not sure why I lost that fight, makes no sense.  Mom said I would always 
win if I were a... -- Good'ol Boy
P.S. Yes, the gladiatorial commission misspelled my name but then my handwriting is 
that of a little boy so.....

Den -- Maybe with all these youngsters again we can end this soon.  Prepare to lose a 
couple of your babies and lose the contest at the same time.  Might as well start 
making out that check. -- Gentleben

help you score?  Don't worry, that your mommy helps you with so much is common 
knowledge to just about everyone. -- General Bashur

Domesticated Ben -- I hope you escaped turkey day intact!  I shudder to think of the 
indigestion that would be caused by trying to consume a turkey like you! -- G. Bashur

Chad -- Keep writing the personal ads!  They are most enjoyable.  Even more enjoyable 
than watching you keep a losing record while running a team of pure scum!  You should 
DA that offensive slasher! -- Bashur

that is the wisdom that one gains from growing old, I'll die young, thank you very 
much. -- Bashur

Weirdo & Manaqueen -- So glad you guys are filling the roles of the arena cowards.  
The way of you cowards is always the same.  You come in for a bit, then run away in 
fear when things get tough! -- G. Bashur

Uyphy -- You should lobby for a new major in college...  Creative spelling! -- Bashur

                        FIRST INAUGURAL ARVAT CONTEST SUPREME

Who can join?  Anyone with a team in Arvat as of 2/1/2018.

When does it start?  First turn due after 2/1/2018.

How long does it run? 13 turns.

How do I join?  Announce your manager name and team name in the Arvat newsletter prior 
to 2/1/2017 and state that you are entering the contest.  Prior to the contest 
actually starting you need to have 2 rollup certs sent to the Dark One care of RSI.

How do I win the contest? The team which has accrued the most points as of the end of 
the 13th turn is the winner.  The team which has the 2nd most points is declared the 
runner up.  And the team which has the 3rd most points is declared honorable 
contender.  Everyone else is a loser and should be ridiculed.

How do I score points?

1)  Every challenge you win vs. another team in the contest = 10 points, as long as 
    that challenge is to a warrior equal to or above yours in the rankings.  Except 
    for the Duelmaster who can challenge anyone he wants.

2)  You also earn bonus points for every challenge won.  For every point of 
    recognition your target is ranked above you, you earn one bonus point.  This is 
    for challenges only.

3)  If you are challenged by a warrior below you and defeat him, you will gain 5 
    points.

4)  Also every random matchup against a contest team that you win will earn you 5 
    points -- up or down.

5)  You CAN downchallenge, however you get no points for doing so, and if you are 
    beaten, your opponent will earn 10 points and the right to ridicule you in the 
    newsletter.

6)  Bloodfeud challenges count just like regular challenges during the contest.

7)  In addition there are the following bonus points that are awarded each turn:

    A)  Duelmaster earns 10 points

    B)  Graduating a warrior earns 10 points

    C)  Recognition Leader (Chartered or Unchartered) earns 5 points (if the 
        Duelmaster is the recognition leader as well, then only the DM points apply)

    D)  Popularity Leader earns 5 points

    E)  Turn's most popular earns 5 points

    F)  Top team on the move earns 5 points

    G)  Current Top team earns 10 points

    H)  Any warrior that earns a Tournament Champion in either the April Mail In or 
        July FTF tournament earns 20 points

    I)  Any warrior that earns a Tournament Victor in either of those tournaments 
        earns 10 points

    J)  Note that Top Chartered and Unchartered team awards do NOT earn points

What are the rules regarding other teams in the arena?  If you challenge any warriors 
not participating in the contest you LOSE 20 points, unless the challenged warrior is 
the Duelmaster.  If any manager has a 2nd (or 3rd) team in the arena they may NOT 
challenge any warrior of any team participating in the contest or they are 
DISQUALIFIED.

What do I win if I win this contest?

    In addition, the winner gets to pick 3 of the prizes below.

2)  The runner up gets to pick 2 of the prizes below.
