                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A standby?  I take the throne, I get invited to fight on the Isle, and all I
have to contend with is a STANDBY?
     The entire challenge champs--all three of them--went inactive.  Only one
champion, my teammate, is active.  No challenger adepts are active.  There is NO
competition in this arena till you get down into the adepts class!  I call that sad.
What the heck is this arena coming to?

                                        Babyface

P.S.  But at least I beat the damned Dwarf.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out MORDANT to see 
what's new.  Too bad, HOMICIDAL MANIACS, but THE BLACK COMPANY was just too good to 
be stopped.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but MANNEQUIN'S BEST 
really goofed with their 0-5-0.  MVP award for BOTTLE SWALLOWING?  SOULTAKER 
OLYMPICS' proud of him after beating LUCRECE and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  VORTEX's match with DENNIS cost him a loss of 9 points!  CIARAN thinks 
his 12-5-1 and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any 
bets?  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think BABYFACE should let 
CIARAN be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  OF WOLF AND 
MAN was MORDANT's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know 
what SOULTAKER OLYMPICS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many 
fights from OF WOLF AND MAN, that's fer sher.  Like, is LUCRECE popular, or what?  
She was challenged the most in all of MORDANT!  She's got a 7-7-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MORDANT ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many 
people were snickering when BOTTLE SWALLOWING killed LUCRECE.  So she had a 7-7-0, 
that's no excuse!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Woah!  Where'd everybody go?  Was it something I said? <sniff> I didn't think I
smelled THAT bad.... -- Darkfist

Man Next Door -- Dude, you're too spooky!  Reminds me of the movie "The Burbs".  Any
bodies buried in your back yard? -- Darkfist

Lord Bleeds -- Uh, your name seems kinda ironic to me, sorry.  I'm just glad you're
not a hemophiliac or something. -- Faceless

Bottle Swallowing -- Glad you haven't found your favorite weapon yet.  So who's this
Soultaker person anyway? -- Smeds

Haydan -- Hey, we were pretty evenly matched!  Care to try a more intimate sort of
contest, big guy? -- Sylith

     Oooo, you don't want that.  Trust me. -- Ed.

Mannequin -- You didn't run away from my bloodfeud or something, did you?  Believe

me, Bomanz was nothing special and 'them's the breaks' as they say.  Despite my
fearsome moniker (actually has to do with my former occupation as a blacksmith), I'm
a pretty easy-going manager.  Hope to see you back this turn. -- Darkfist

M. Chardinee?  He's RUINING the neighborhood, lowering the PROPERTY VALUES with his
stupid little gray birds and their disgusting messes!  He's worthless and weak!  He
doesn't belong here! -- Man Next Door

Black Devin's a fine figure of a man, but he has no manners. -- Grammaw
P.S.  No cookies for him.

Snag -- Why couldn't I get a standby, too?  I wouldn't have minded beating one. --
Lucrece
P.S.  Oh, yeah, fine fight--from your point of view.
P.S.  If you are my secret admirer, you can forget it.

Sylith -- I believe you were laughing.  That was a heartless reaction, but perhaps
not surprising from a half elf.  One hears that half elves have a certain reputation.
-- Haydan

Sylith -- It is, of course, a truism of human nature that there are more cowards
around. -- Haydan

Faceless -- Listen, sonny, us grandparents are ALWAYS reliable in the matter of
keeping secrets.  Unless it's our ancestral duty to disclose things, of course.
Can't have the younger generation going to heck in paper bag. -- Grammaw

27 May 2003
A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists

     The Company of Brothers want to take this opportunity to formally introduce
ourselves to all players.  Our play is NOT based on smack, rudeness, or anything less
than fair play (well...as fair as it gets!) and improving the knowledge base of the
game and the sharing of experimentation and information.  We are not concerned with
personal politics, ideals, etc.  We are players who enjoy the game.
     Currently, our membership includes:
     Asmo Dius, Baphomet, and Fahkry.

     We wish to welcome our newest member...Suiside.  May the gods smile upon you and

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
     More info:  Master Darque, MasterDarqueDM@aol.com, or Jack Wolfspider,
