Den:

I give you credit for standing up and acknowledging that you purposely tainted the 
Terrablood database.

I do not give you much credit for your rationalization or excuse as to why you chose 
to do so.

While I also admire your ability to pen a significant amount of words, succinctness 
can be a virtue.

We are all imperfect in our own way; sadly, your actions have misdirected/mislead us 
all.

The Consortium

P.S. If any of my past personal comments or improper language hurt you or your team's
feelings or caused any of you pain, I do deeply apologize.  It would never be my 
intent to impair any manager's enjoyment of our beloved game.

***---------*---------*---------*---------**---------*---------*---------*---------***

An open letter to Oz the Disappointed

This is in reference to your multiple-arena personal ad that printed last turn 
regarding incorrect styles entered into Terrablood.  You are disappointed?  For real 
disappointment, look into the eyes of your family and friends where disappointment 
lives for eternity.  But instead, let's concentrate on some facts you self-serving 
glory hound.  If you actually took the time to do simple search in the forums, you 
will find countless comments made about the inaccuracies of the styles entered into 
TB, many managers say they don't use it any longer as they cannot trust it.  These 
comments go back for years and include the time that I or any other AA member were not 
even playing.  Now, make another inquiry into TB and see which managers enter the most 
styles, thus using it the most.  You will find that I am one of the top if not the top 
contributor of information entered.  Those are hard facts and cannot be argued.

Now, let's delve into the issue that spawned this weak attempt for you to try and 
garner favor from the other managers.  How said it is that you even bother, this is so 
blatant, we all see you for what you truly are, a sad man hoping that by standing up 
to the mean and evil Den everyone will champion your cause and lift you up on their 
shoulders and parade you around.  Sorry hypocrite, that is not going to happen.  This 
all started as Crying Ben flipped his lid when he challenged one of my warriors in 81 
and the style did not match TB.  I have an 86%-win percentage against Crying Ben, so 
imagine his angst as he attempts every possible avenue to beat me, and then this 
happens to further his frustration.  So, being the detailed man he is, he investigates 
further and finds a total of FOUR of my warriors (out of my 8 active teams) with 
incorrect styles entered into TB.  Yeah idiot, you read that correctly, FOUR warriors 
out of the dozens I run or have entered. Crying Ben and I exchanged messages and there 
are no issues between us other than he will never be able to beat me consistently and 
will have to accept that fact.  If there was intention, it would be more wide-spread 
(like your stench).  Then, everything calms down, and all of a sudden Stik in a sad 
attempt to become relevant in the game fabricates an outright lie and accuses Philthy 
Phil of changing the style of one of his old warriors.  Funny thing is, Phil does not 
even have internet access as he recently moved, and as noted later, we don't even know 
how to change existing styles.  Stik is a pathetic attention seeking loser and it is 
necessary for him to be recognized by someone and he saw this as his chance.  He 
really thought everyone would finally recognize him as a man.  Sadly, I quickly 
snuffed this out and exposed him for the charlatan he certainly is.  The reality is 
that if Stik quit playing today, nobody would even notice.  Sure, at some juncture 
someone may point out that there is a void where that void used to be, which is Stik.  
Finally, we have you trying to pick up the torch and run with it.  A more pitiable 
torch-bearer there could not be.

Here is what happened with my warriors that were incorrectly entered.  After several 
challenges in 47 where I found the style entered into TB was not the actual style of 
the warrior, I became angered.  I was sick of getting screwed by the rest of you jerks 
who have been doing this for years, taking advantage of those of us who play and 
practice honesty.  So, I sent out an email to the guys telling them we might as well 
do the same or continue to be screwed by you jackals.  I entered the 2 of my warriors 
in 47 that did not have a style associated with them.  I may have done the 2 in 81 as 
well, but I don't remember, and all the guys have my login and password on TB as they 
never registered for their own.  We do not know how to correct styles or change 
existing styles on TB so any changes to existing are done by your cronies.  However; 
Crying Ben has told me he will show that to me, which is pretty damn considerate of 
him since I use TB more than most do.

So, you really want to talk about real-world happenings though huh?  Well, let me 
share a little about the professed angel hiding behind the Consortium.  I had not 
attended a F2F in over 20 years when I and my friends went to Chicago.  It was a long 
drive and we were excited to get there and start nerding out again after such a long 
hiatus.  We go into the room and start walking towards the empty table in the back.  
You approach me, verify who I am, then grab my arm, turn me to the crowd and holler 
out, "Hey everyone here is the trick" only you did not say "trick" you used a profane 
word that rhymes with "trick".  Then you quickly scurried away like the littlerat you 
are.  What kind of person does that?  Who do you think you are?  How do you justify 
such a sad and juvenile action?  We all found this in your words "inconsiderate, foul, 
unethical, and could lead to penalties up to and including expulsion."  What a poor 
thing to do to anyone and for no reason other than to somehow make yourself seem more 
impressive to your little friends.  You love to portray yourself as this wonderful 
righteous person, but you are not.

And, are you really threatening me with "penalties and expulsion?"  From whom, the 
Duelmaster's Police Force?  Will I be given community service to right my wrongs?  
Will I have to tell the community that some angry old man caught me using a database 
like everyone else, but since he practices hate on a regular basis I got in trouble?  
Tell you what old man, I will happily be expelled if you do the exact same to every 
single person who has ever entered an incorrect style into that database.  Which will 
include many of your little buddies that you sit around and have back-patting 
festivals with.  Go ahead and make your emergency call to the database authorities, 
Dork.  How about you answer me these questions parasite:
1. If this has been happening for years, why is it suddenly a huge deal that I jumped 
on board and did the exact same?
2. Why is it so important for you to portray yourself as such a stand-up person when 
you certainly are not?  Your actions in Chicago prove who you are.  
3. Are you man enough to apologize for your actions at the F2F?
4. Are you embarrassed that you are attempting the same thing as Stik, knowing what a 
nothing he is?
5. Before we talk next time, any chance you can brush your tooth?

Looking forward to your answers, rat-man.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail NORTH FORK!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  Now, what did these guys have for breakfast this morning?  BAAL'S 
MINIONS has turned a 5-0-0 into 3rd place from 26th.  Give me the recipe!  I want to 
know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Dripping Blade, seeing as EL 
CAMINO:HOT SAUCE's 61-24-3 has earned them 4th place in the ranks.  I understand that 
The Dripping Blade is buying the drinks for SHEWISH DINER tonight, to honor their 
rise to 7th after this turns 3-2-0.  Hmmm.  Now, what did these guys have for 
breakfast this morning?  THE WILD HUNT has turned a 5-0-0 into 12th place from 35th.  
Give me the recipe!  It doesn't rain, but it pours for SNOW FORT this turn, a 2-3-0 
causing a 12 flight drop in the team rankings.  Hand that team a dry towel.  I want 
to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Dripping Blade, seeing as 
SERPENTS HOLD II's 84-83-5 has earned them 19th place in the ranks.  I understand 
that The Dripping Blade is buying the drinks for A'MERKIN INJUNS tonight, to honor 
their rise to 21st after this turns 4-1-0.  Hmmm.  Now, what did these guys have for 
breakfast this morning?  KHORS VILLANS has turned a 3-2-0 into 22nd place from 42nd.  
Give me the recipe!  KAOS! must be either in pain, or numb, having dropped from 11th 
to 25th this turn, with a 3-2-0 acting as the weight.  Our condolences (or sneers, as 
the case may be) go out to BIKER LIFE for their drop to 32nd from 8th.  A 1-4-0 can 
do that.  PAWN OF PROPHECY must be either in pain, or numb, having dropped from 12th 
to 33rd this turn, with a 1-4-0 acting as the weight.  It doesn't rain, but it pours 
for LES TURFISTES this turn, a 2-3-0 causing a 23 flight drop in the team rankings.  
Hand that team a dry towel.  NATURAL B. KILLERS 2 must be either in pain, or numb, 
having dropped from 25th to 38th this turn, with a 1-4-0 acting as the weight.  The 
FAST FOOD guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, CYCLONUS fought LION 
and gained 25 points and contributed to DARQUE FORCES' 4-1-0.  HENCHMAN has lost to 
BAD INK, falling 21 points, while helping make SATAN'S MINIONS a 2-3-0 turn.  This 
week's Duelmaster bout was between DRONE A4 and our Duelmaster TOBIAS FUNKE, making a 
challenge.  Defending his title for another turn, TOBIAS FUNKE kept TOLBINS HIVE A's 
warrior, DRONE A4, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the SECOND BANANAS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on NORTH FORK, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided SECOND BANANAS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
BASH BROS PARK.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was BIG 
LAKE MAULERS' warrior JACK THE BLADE.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), MR. 
WOLF challenged DOOM SLINGER today, facing a 30 difference in recognition.  But Fate 
isn't always willing to be cheated, and MR. WOLF lost to DOOM SLINGER, and BAAL'S 
MINIONS has not stopped laughing.  PHAROS from WHITE SHADOW took a risk this turn by 
bravely challenging up 29 points in a challenge against PLAGUE PARADE.  Even though 
PHAROS lost the fight, he at least came away with a gain of 28 points for challenging 
on of BAAL'S MINIONS.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A farewell moment, if you please, 
QUEEN OF THE SOUTH of ROYAL FLUSH has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried 
out on hers shield.  BEYOND THE WALL made what looks to be a tough decision this 
turn, as they sent SLYMENSTRA, with a record of 6-5-0, to SLYMENSTRA death.  
Farewell, hers.  The manager of WICKED MARTYRS will not be pleased to learn that 
BRANDY ALEX, a 4-2-0 fighter, has been killed at the hands of SERPENTS HOLD II's 
FAITH.  SERPENTS HOLD II, with any luck WICKED MARTYRS will successfully bloodfeud 
FAITH for killing such a warrior as BRANDY ALEX.  Have a little decency, will ya?  
Seriously now, is it really honorable for STARFURY from DESTROYERS LEGION to kill 
MEAT LOAFER and give MYSTIC ORC FEAST the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  The 
Dripping Blade declares a free round for GORE GORE GIRL and all of TOKEN ENTRY, for 
having revenged WICKED MARTYRS' CORSON for killing one of their comrades.  Is it 
really true that NORTH FORK has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just 
thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in NORTH FORK, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Oz ads missing last time despite Hal confirmation ........................

A salute and congrats to Tobias Funke, Mannequin managed and FRODO affiliated.  
Duelmaster of North Fork. Well done. -- Oz The All Excited

A friendly salute to The Mercenarios. May your alliance prosper. -- Oz The All 
Friendly

La Guillotine -- How thoughtful of you to suggest an official declaration form.  But 
do you really think it is necessary?  After all, 50 of 51 understood and "got it". -- 
Oz The All Thankful

Del Icious -- Thanks for the challenge and the win in my pocket. Yes, we felines have 
pockets. -- Lion

Crapulodon -- It was very uplifting to smack you down on your challenge.  Life is 
sweet! -- Crystal Ball

Brandy Alex -- I salute an intelligent manager and a better warrior. -- Munchkin

Low Key -- I guess we both are, but I sneaked the win. And now I am high key. -- 
(named after Assur)

Blade -- It was my pleasure to challenge you and win. There is not enough of that 
around these days. -- Golden Cap

FRODO -- Keep up the good work. Time to surge. Bring your A game. -- Oz The All 
Cheerleading

Things I, The Great And Wonderful Oz, learned last turn:
1. Khisanth needs to say or write things 3 or 4 times to get his point across. That 
must be so difficult in communications.
2. Deeders spews too much. Perhaps it helps his understanding of life?
3. La Guillotine has a thing about greysuits.
4. Den is feuding with Mannequin. I shall not warn Den.
-- Oz The All Understanding

Assur -- Silly you for calling me lazy in the selection of a name for my warrior. Why, 
I Christianed Humbug in your likeness and honor. You are welcome. -- Oz The All 
Praising

Health. Humility. Honor. (Especially the health part lately.) -- Oz The All 
Philosophizing

Team Mercs -- My apologies for the 0-5. :(  I guess that loser Caitlyn Denner, High 
Priestess of the Alcholoics Annonymous rubbed off on me.  Once I burn my clothers and 
cut my hair - I should be back on track.  Wecome Khorviunus to the champs of 
Northfork!! -- Scorpio *knocking back some burbon*

Team Mercs -- Let me do a little re-configuring to a couple of my gladiators, then I 
should be on point. *smiles* -- Scorpio

You know whom you are, I am giving you the opportunity to correct a wrong.  
Purposefully entering incorrect style data into the Terrablood database, which belongs 
to us all in the game, is inconsiderate, foul, unethical, and could lead to penalties 
up to and including expulsion.  If others near to you are doing same, please advise 
them of same.  Please go into the database and correct all your wrongs in all the 
arenas. -- Oz The All Disappointed

All -- I, Manta, manager of Token Entry, declare Elephant to be my champion. -- Manta

Royal Flush -- Am I getting away with murder?  I look up and the stars are silent.  
Have the gods turned away from em?  I can only wait. 

Den -- You seem to have a fascination with the showers and with paddles.  You also 
like to make "masculine" names "feminine" as a stance to prop yourself up.  At the 
same time you like to demean men by implying that they are children.  Why?  What 
unfortunate history is there?  Why is the lack of agency, the lack of individual power 
such an issue for you?  Share it with us and heal yourself.  Reach out and be healed. 
-- Manta

I declare Dresden to be the Turf War champion for Team Blackstaff. -- Bill the Bard

Barney Stinson -- I'll make one more comment, post-fight (since I seemed to be pretty 
chatty during our fight)..."you look more like a third or fourth banana." -- Sex

Black Planet -- Interesting weapon choice...next time just attack with the dagger 
unless we fight. -- Safety Dance

Olaf -- Good fight! -- Blue Monday

TW Commission -- Let it be known that Trigger Hapy Cop will now stand as Champion for 
Natural B. Killers -- Maximillian

Odin Averson -- Thanx for the lesson, learned alot!!  I see...a rematch in our future.

Hjorvardr -- Lucky...I can see where my training is needed. -- White Reublican

Harry Slaughter -- Ah bad style matchup for me, good for you. I count myself lucky 
tohave survived. -- Suicide I

I was going to write some brilliant persads, but with the advent of a FRODO flop 
lastround, I have lost my mojo. Perhaps after FRODO makes its miraculous comeback you 
should expect a page full of ingenious words. -- Oz The All Mojo-less

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooo FRODO. -- Oz The All Motivating

North Fork -- Queen of The South finally gets to leave this place.  Never held high 
hopes for her, and she didn't dissappoint, though there's a reason she has lost her 
last 8 consecutive fights.  She leaves here as a 11(1)-6(1)-16-10(1)-21-12-11 LU, with 
AdEx Init, and Experts in Attack, Decise, Defence and Riposte.  Good riddance I say. 
-- Crip, Mgr of Royal Flush  
P.S.  Now if someone would just do me a favour and kill Jack B. Quick, it would be 
appreciated.

Stink Face -- Vengeful anger's your double-edged sword. -- Mythbuster, Big Idea

Suzi Q -- Garbage pail always seems greener on the other side, eh kid? -- Hamesteader, 
Big Idea

Bola -- Note to self:  *sharpen* stick. -- Forest Gardener, Big Idea

All -- Love's a mirage?... -- Curved Dervish, Big Idea

All -- Welcome to North Fork's tavern! (it has a name...er...drink up!) -- Beer Hall 
Girl, Big Idea

Ancient hunter-gatherer societies had a 60% homicide rate, male-on-male. -- The 
Elucidator, mgr Big Idea

Manta -- Thank you for having such a deep concern for my well-being, and I am pleased 
you survived the latest attack.  I think it is cute that a simpleton such as yourself 
is trying to act clever with your sad little attempt to psychoanalyze my written 
words.  You see, where my writings are heralded as perhaps some of the finest in the 
land, yours are glossed over on the way to see what the rat Oz has dribbled onto his 
chin.  I even had to search to find anyone ever even noticing that you even exist.  
How does that feel?  Walking the streets having people bump into you and then look 
behind them wondering what it was that was there, looking straight through you, and 
shaking their head in bewilderment.  You're probably never going to amount to anything 
much, maybe a good idea to hide anything sharp in your trailer, just in case.  Hey, 
maybe Stik will invite you to a little something he calls Lonely Xmas. -- Den

Otto -- Delete any incriminating posts on Chatzy for you and your buddy Spirit lately? 
Pretty sad. -- Den

Scorpio -- Wow, looks like your team is really lighting it up.  Won't be long and you 

will quit, just like you have in every other arena.  You would think a loser like you 
would get used to losing, you know, with all the losses you incur.  Keep in mind you 
are not bright and that may ease the pain. -- Den

Now the true test of which alliances survived the break!  Hopefully I still remember 
how to run my scoring spreadsheet! -- Assur
