                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     "Greetings, warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the
clash and bustle of the weekly CRYSALIS games."  Weekly, ha!  But nobody said Zontani
was the sharpest pencil in the box.  "BASE ON BULLS caught the eye of many in the
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL and was awarded
24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MAD COW DISEASE
put down TAMMY FAYE, causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.
Although DUTCH TREAT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of
victorious WHACKING WILLOW.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in
duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!"  We had zero,
which will do fine."
     "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.  X-POSSE is feared.  This much I
can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of ROYAL FLUSH 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.  YOUNG JOAN take warning!  You have more
than a few enemies in CRYSALIS.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this
week, it seems that DART posted a challenge against the more highly recognized UNCLE
FESTER.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand DART was defeated by UNCLE
FESTER.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention
with disdain the name of GROM HELLSCREAM who this week posted a challenge to a
warrior a full 9 points below in the rankings.  I thought GROM HELLSCREAM showed
great skill and promise when he lost to HU YAN ZHUO.  All right, so I slept through
it!  Big deal!"  This business with the down-challenges always annoys me.  If the
Commission thought they were Bad, why make them legal?  And if they aren't Bad
(especially here on the Isle), why make a big deal out of it?
     "What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!"  What would be the point of
setting an enemy against the miserable?  Would they even notice?
     "A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes"

     Zontani should avoid thinking.  It would probably improve his spy reports, not
to mention his social options.

     MONKEY DO (25-4152) (35-21-2,211) of PRIMATES-R-US fought ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL
(106-28) (0-0-0,200) of The Old Reliables.  MONKEY DO overpowered ARENAMASTER
SANDAVOL in a popular 1 minute one-sided bout.

I note that of our standbys, Arenamaster Sandoval fought five times and lost them
all.  Clotto also fought five times but won three--without killing!  Telgor fought
three times and won them all.  The other standbys diddled around, a win here, a loss
there, you know how it goes.  Nothing remarkable.

Two-three this time.  That's an improvement, sorry to say.  Or maybe not sorry, if it
means an upward trend? -- Young Joan

General Kills -- Ha, kills DUCKS, I have NO doubt.  Think of this as The Duck's
Revenge. -- Ski Mask, founder and president of Ducks with Swords, and more merciful
than Clotto

Land of Flush -- Why am I not surprised? -- Ghost Dancer

R Baggio -- The best use of feet is running away from me, you know.  Not kicking
around a ball. -- Glacier
P.S.  I've heard there are places where it's possible to outrun the advance of a
glacier, but I am not that glacier.  Unless you run FAST.

Steve McQueen -- I'm just too prone to accept pretty talk as a sign of good
intentions.  I need to work on that. -- Amelia

Jive -- Too cryptic for me. -- Young Joan
P.S.  I like things simple and obvious.

SLAUGHTER CHALLENGE 2

Several years ago I ran a contest known as the "Slaughter Challenge" which was the
idea of a member of my alliance at the time.  We unfortunately lost him during a
robbery attempt at the store he worked at.  This November will mark the 10th
anniversary of his passing so I have decided to run the Slaughter Challenge again in
remembrance of him.

Rich Hammes was a member of my alliance, the Vendetta Cartel, and had sponsored me
into the alliance.  Rich was a common poster to both the Yahoo Duelmasters group as
well as the Duel2 boards and our Alliance's Yahoo group.  He went by the handle
GameOgre on the Duel2 boards and was known by the name Abarsis, the Slaughter Priest.
He was a very kind and thoughtful man who always had time to talk with not only his
alliance-mates but anyone else who wanted to discuss Duelmasters.  He also had time
to talk with anyone about personal life issues if he felt he could help.  He was a
daily, and prolific, poster to these sites and seemed to enjoy the interaction with
others regarding this game that he loved so much.

I would also like everyone to know that he spent several years in the US Navy serving
on a Nuclear attack Submarine in protection of our nation.  He was well loved, and
well known, by the community in which he lived even spending time at a local Ice
Cream Shop around closing time to assure that the lady who owned the store was safe
as she was often alone when she closed her shop.  He was a well known and much loved
member of his local community.  His death was grieved by his local San Diego
community where they held a candle-light vigil for him and many expressed their
disbelief that he was gone.  These are just a scant few examples of what a kind and
caring man he was and why not only our gaming community lost a great deal on that
fateful day, but also shows why there was tremendous sadness among the community in
which he lived.

It is near to 10 years since his passing and there are many times I wonder, "What
would Rich think about this...."  I miss my friend dearly to this day and I hope you
will come join us in this contest idea which he himself came up with.  He thought we
should all learn to appreciate what Jorja does to keep our smaller arenas alive and
populated!

The contest will be held in Morya, arena 28, beginning on the turn that is due on
November 6th, 2014 (turn 378 I believe).  Tourney participation is not allowed during
the contest but the contest will start after the fall Mailer so you can get your
warriors a few fight experience should you choose to.  The timing of the contest was
done to allow entry into the fall mailer.

The rules are fairly simple and inspired to let us all feel what it is like to run
warriors like Jorja does.  Her teams across Alastari may sometimes be taken for
granted so this contest will allow us to appreciate her teams a little better as they
populate the arenas we fight in.

The Rules--

There are no challenges, avoids, bloodfeuds, or tourneys allowed and only one single
use of the Dark Arena is allowed after the contest begins.  Win or lose the Dark
Arena is allowed but once, so if you want your warrior dead be sure and throw the
fight!

The contest will last for 12 turns.  May I point out that if you use your Dark Arena
fight you will get either 2 points, for winning, or -2, for losing, and ALL fights
count in the scoring.  It matters not if you fight a non-contest warrior or a stand-
in; they still count as much as fighting a contest warrior.  This will be a test of
basic strategy with a touch of luck added in as well.

If anyone should break the no tourney rule they will lose 5 points for each warrior
entered and those warriors, and any subsequent warriors who replace them in death,
cannot score points!  The one exception are the dead tourneys.  Should you wish you
may enter your warriors in dead tourneys, since they are not a member of your team,
or even the living, at the time.  The warrior may even return to the contest if a
natural opening can be found for it, or you choose to use your Dark Arena fight to
make that opening (if you still have that option left).  Break the no DA, challenge,
or avoid rules and you will be DQed as soon as the transgression is discovered.  To
keep the contest playing field as level as possible, we will have no messing with
these rules.  Of course you may DA the one time, just as a clarification, but the
second time gets you DQed.  This also counts if it is found you bring a second team
in for the purpose of making challenges; you will be DQed.

Scoring is as follows:

1 point for winning
1 point for killing (giving 2 in total, 1 for the win and 1 for the kill)
1 point for at least one of your warriors writing a personal (regardless of number of
  personals beyond one you still only get one point).  Make sure it is written from
  one of your team's warriors and not simply the manager entity or you will not get
  the point.
-1 point for losing
-1 point for being killed (giving -2 in total, -1 for losing and -1 for being killed)
-5 points and the loss of that warrior's slot for scoring the remainder of the
  contest for entering a warrior into a REGULAR tourney (again DEAD tourney is open)

The Prizes:
1st place -- +1 bonus to one warrior on the team, 1 resurrection potion, and 1
  favorite knowledge
2nd place -- +1 bonus for one warrior, 1 favorites knowledge
3rd place -- +1 bonus for one warrior

Iron Manager Award -- Run 54 of the possible 60 fights and get a +1 bonus potion

The bonus potions and favorites knowledge must be used on warriors with 5 FE or more
and MUST be used within 2 turns of the end of the contest.  The resurrection potion
must be used within 6 months of the end of the contest but may be used on any warrior
regardless of FE.  ALL prizes must be used on the contest team, they are NOT
transferable to another team!

If you wish to participate please notify Street Legal via Personal Ad in arena 28, on
the Duel2 forums, or in Chatzy!
