Greetings to all the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse participants!  I hope you had an 
exciting first turn in the arena and are looking forward to 9 more.  Below you will 
find last turn's scoring, using the traditional Slaughterhouse mechanisms.  The 
Deplorables take the first round by the slimest of margins, 1 POINT!  There were 4 no-
shows, hopefully each of them will make an appearance this turn.  There was only 1 
fight vs. an arena stand by, and TMM was unlucky enough to draw it.

THIS TURN, we time travel to the island of Illis and celebrate the Delarquan Death 
Fest.  Our scoring this turn will follow:

*Win = +2 pts 
*Loss = -1 pt 
*Kill = +5 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win] 
*Death = -3 pts [in addition to -1 pt for Loss] 
*Dark Arena Kill = +10 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win] 
*Dark Arena Death = -5 pts [in addition to -1 pt for Loss] 

Challenges against squad-mates will incur -1 penalty for both participants. Death 
penalties will also apply.

Preliminary scores will be posted on the D2 forums the same day the arena updates 
online (for 45, this means scores will be posted on the Saturday after the arena 
runs.).

                              **************************

NEXT TURN is going to be an... interesting one to say the least!  If you have never 
been to Aradi during the TOGS, enjoy the fun.  If you have participated in a TOGS 
previously, don't forget to take your medication before next turn.

*10 points for winning on your upchallenge against another SSV warrior. 
*7 points for winning on your even challenge of another SSV warrior. 
*7 points for winning on another SSV warrior's challenge. 
*7 points for winning a random matchup against another SSV warrior. 
*4 points for winning a random matchup against a non-SSV warrior. 

*Do not fight your teammate, you will not get any points. Also, you will not get any 
points if you challenge a non-SSV team (this includes the Dark Arena). 

*5 points for a spotlight written by any team member, 1 per manager per turn. The 
minimum length of a spotlight to receive points is 1/2 column in the newsletter 
(that's 31 lines--each line 86 characters across). In addition to the length criteria, 
spotlights will not be given any points if they are in any way plagiarized or if they 
are not Duelmasters or fantasy related. If in doubt about the content, email me before 
the turn and I will be happy to verify it for you. 

* -5 points per manager who does not write at least one (1) personal ad. 

* -5 points for being the team that avoided the most.

Until Next Time,

Master Darque

     Below the Bottom of the World, Stormm Krow surveyed the DM-45 Duel 2 Newsletter 
for Turn-385, before addressing the assembled Abattoir 5 Blades guild members.      
     "Do you really understand how dismal your Career Win-Loss Record is according to 
the listing in the DM-45 Turn-385 Duel 2 Newsletter?" 
     Subdued silence was the only reply! 
     "Bottom Of The World is listed at the bottom of the Career Standings and Abattoir 
5 Blades is nowhere to be found in the Career Records!" 
     Still more subdued silence! 
     "That makes Abattoir 5 Blades below, nay, beneath the Bottom Of The World and you 
five have such a lame record that the Stormcrowe Gladiatorial Commission omitted you 
from the Career Standings in the Newsletter!"  

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Managers were muttering after AVID FANS showed 
STORMCROWE what they could do:  5-0-0 to move up by 17.  Like a chunk of francium 
heaved into a wet pond, NOV FUN 14 blew up the rankings to 18!  Perhaps it is PHANTOM 
REGIMENT members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 31st to 14th last 
week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, 
BATTLE SHIPS blew up the rankings to 19!  The boys at FORCE OF FIVE aren't the 
happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after suffering a 11 drop last week.  
Rumor has it an incurable disease has swept the stable of MAIDEN JAPAN.  Note their 
drop in the rankings from 5th to 21st.  Watch out!!!  Thinking about sending their 
team manager to the Dark Arena is DARQUE FORCES, after suffering a 16 drop in 
ranking.  The boys at MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know 
and love, after suffering a 12 drop last week.  Rumor has it an incurable disease has 
swept the stable of LAW DOGS.  Note their drop in the rankings from 12th to 31st.  
Watch out!!!  The boys at 1ST DIVISION aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know 
and love, after suffering a 13 drop last week.  Good things come to those who fight 
well, as OTTODROME XLV can attest, moving up by 8.  Practice pays for CHOPPER, who 
pummelled LADY MACDEATH, to pocket 20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, MAN ABOUT TOWN was winsome, after beating BATTLE FROG and seeing it lose 17 
points.  Duelmaster TICKET TAKER from AVID FANS is going for the gold, as he 
challenged LA BOULANGE's MAITRE BOULANGER.  Ooh, the excitement!  MAITRE BOULANGER 
found out that STORMCROWE isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of MAIDEN JAPAN should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of MAIDEN 
JAPAN found their efforts at combat frustrated as FORCE OF FIVE apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and NASTY 
SAND DANCER is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't ABATTOIR 5 BLADES 
proud!  Them's the breaks, A HAMMER FAVORITE.  Expecting fair challenges from BIG 
LAKE KILLERS is evidently too much to ask.  Warriors of STORMCROWE!  Do you wish your 
reputations tainted by the base challenge of EDMUND KEMPER?  As a confidence booster, 
KIT KAT KATANA challenged MOJO JOJO, down 18 points.  Do you also slay vicious 
rodents in your spare time, KIT KAT KATANA?  KIT KAT KATANA dispatched MOJO JOJO.  
The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  Take heed STORMCROWE, of the unprincipled 
action of THEON.  By challenging PETIT PAIN, 20 points below him, THEON besmirches 
the noble art of dueling.  THEON subdued PETIT PAIN with a point difference of 20.  
So this is what STORMCROWE calls a duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  
GRATEFUL DEAD found himself challenged by a warrior 22 below:  ROCK OF AGES.  ROCK OF 
AGES of INTERNATIONAL kept its wits as it bested GRATEFUL DEAD.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  More than one waitress at The Shadow's Fountain was spilling more drinks than 
usual last week, as KALROTH's early demise became known.  What will RUNEMASTERS do??? 
Death in the arena!  In a cheap quest for a cheap victory, ROBERT FROST faced KALROTH 
in an uneven fight.  RUNEMASTERS, we expect bloody revenge!  Charity is unknown in 
STORMCROWE, and rightly so.  DARQUE FORCES exacted their revenge against FORCE OF 
FIVE.  Justice was served as GATTILIAN fought BRAVE NEW WORLD in bloodfeud.  Well 
done, TIME STALLYANS!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased 
to see DEAD POETS retaliate against RUNEMASTERS in bloodfeud!  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
STORMCROWE would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  STORMCROWE, I leave you 
now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Shadow's Fountain.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

U.N. -- What a fitting team theme for the only truly multi-national team in this 
contest. -- Crip

Scandal Savage -- Certainly wasn't the way I expected that to go after seeing the 
initial matchup. -- Ticket Taker

Nanu Nanu -- Better call Orson. -- A Cheerleader

Wrathchild -- OK, the team is willing to accept one grossly unfair style matchup per 
round.  -- A Reporter

Rasam -- Sure, keep pilling the patient losses on me -- An Arena Doctor

Salman -- Somehow, I have the feeling I've been set-up -- A Security Guard

What? How could we all have allowed a DEPLORABLE Team to go out on top? What is wrong 
with us. This damaging situation is worse that the crisis we all have about what to do 
with North Korea. Perhaps The Deplorables are allied to North Korea? -- U.N.

Thanks for the help, everyone I did find Avid Fans, because they and Ticket Taker are 
right there on top of Stormcrowe. Well done, Avid Fans! -- U.N.

Marshfellow, I had to challenge and beat you; I had to do anything I could to hold 
Shewish Drive-Thru back. -- Galapagos, International

What were you thinking, Bender? How could you do that to me? I would have given you a 
free vacation for some awesome skiing had you been nicer. -- Swiss Alp

G-Vegas Gigolos, allow me to brag about how much fun I had dragging down Boulder and 
slowing the eventual Gigolo pace. It felt gooooooood. -- Mongolia

Mr. Crip, thank you for carrying me in round one. I promise to work harder and do my 
share for CONSCRIP. -- U,N,

Aristophanes -- You are one tough son-of-a-Greek. -- Grunt

Shrimp Scamp -- That was a well fought contest.  It will be quite a while before I 
return to the buffet for seconds. -- Leather Neck

Kit Kat -- Gimme a break!  Bad match-up for you to draw. -- Devil Dog

Blue Horseshoe -- NEVER lose your weapon.  Now drop and give me 50! -- Master Guns

Battle Wagon -- Maybe you should transfer to 5-4 and carry supplies. -- Recon

Psychos -- Apparently the long years that I have been away from Arena Fighting has not 
only proven me to be "Rusty" when it comes to my Managerial Skills, but the way my 
warriors have been dancing on the sands here in Arena 45 and in other Arenas in 
previous months makes it evident that this game has passed me by! -- Hammer, mgr

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
