Old Valamantis:

     The group of gladiators moved toward the edge of the risen city as slowly and 
carefully as they would have approached a sleeping dragon... that maybe wasn't 
sleeping after all.  There was a partial wall separating the buildings from the 
countryside around them, but it must be outside the area of effect, because it was 
not in good condition.  There were gaps and fallen stones, even trees growing between 
them where the ages had trapped dirt.
     Smeds of Mordant patted one of the stones thoughtfully.  "Honest stonework 
here," he murmured.
     "And more recent than the ruins," Shamu of Cliffhome agreed.  "Six hundred 
years, I'd say."  He glanced at Smeds, and the other Dwarf nodded agreement.
     "Built just before the most recent Chaos War," the Silver Mage said, "to keep 
things in the ruins from getting out.  Brought down by that war, at least in part.  
But..." he touched several stones lightly and smiled a little, "not completely 
useless even now and against this enemy.  Honest stonework, as you say, but there is 
a barrier spell bound within the stones, and it remains."
     "If the spell is still working, why are we worrying about the ruins?" Smeds of 
Mordant demanded.
     "Because the spell will not keep working much longer."  Tensekai frowned across 
the wall into the city.  "It was a good wall and a good spell, but it won't hold 
Folstrom forever.  Nothing--"  He stopped and looked uncomfortable.
     "You were going to say that nothing will hold the Folstrom forever?" Sputter of 
Dwes Eg asked.
     Tensekai shrugged.  "No absolute statement like that should be trusted, but I 
can honestly say that nothing we've found so far, except raw Chaos, will stop them.  
We have new spells, of course, but what was there to test them on?  We don't know."
     "Yes, okay, but what are we supposed to be DOING here, then?" Lavender Lance of 
Illis asked.
     "You must observe," the Silver Mage answered promptly.  "And I must go with you, 
because there are some things ONLY a mage can observe.  If we can find the keystone 
of the spell that holds the towers up, we could destroy it, yes, and it might be a 
good thing to do so, but the towers are just a symptom.  There are more dangerous 
things in Old Valamantis than just the towers."
     "Those things being?" Smeds cut in.
     "The wizards, obviously," Lavender Lance snapped.
     "Again, just a symptom," Tensekai said.  "Dangerous, yes, very dangerous, 
     Ka D'Argo, who had never been described as stupid, even by his enemies, nodded 
slightly.  "The wizards in Old Valamantis were resurrected along with the city," he 
said slowly.  "You think there might be some way for them to reach other wizards, 
other Folstrom, of THIS time, don't you?  That's what we have to prevent."
     Tensekai nodded.
     "How?" Smeds demanded.
     "I'm not sure," the Silver Mage admitted.  "Killing the resurrected wizards 
might do it."
     "But you don't think that's enough, do you?" Goblin said.
     "No.  I think we'll have to destroy the old city again," Tensekai answered.  
"And that won't be easy with all the blood that's been spilled there.  Not when blood 
magic is at its strongest, as now."
     "But it can be done?" Smeds asked.
     "To get rid of bloodstains, soak in cold water and hand-wash," Lavender Lance 
     Tensekai turned toward her slowly, eyes wide.  "WHAT did you say?"
     The Illisni gladiator backed up a couple of steps in the face of his intensity.  
"It's how you get bloodstains out of cloth.  Soak it in cold water--"
     "Yes!"  The mage stared around almost feverishly.  "We'll need a LOT of cold 
     "Ice," Smeds suggested.  "From the mountains above Khalhums.  Dwarves can do 
that."  He glanced at Shamu, who nodded.  "We're on it."  The two Dwarves stepped 
aside, muttering together about sledges and sawdust.
     "If the wizards now in Old Valamantis realize we're trying to... quench the 
blood magic, they'll move to stop us," Ka D'Argo said.  "So securing the arena and a 
route of access will be our job."
     "And if any wizards get killed in the process..." Goblin bared his fangs, "too 
bad for them."

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to NIANIA once again!  Biff!  Pow!  NIANIA watched with glee as 
GLORY BOUND TROLLS got knocked off top spot by RESURRECTION!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n 
down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, KNOT 
WHOLE's 4th moved them up to 1-0-0 place.  What's with YOBER?  He actually beat THE 
GOLDEN FISH's NELLISTHA, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at OF WOLF AND MAN 6 while they watched YOBER clobber NELLISTHA.  She lost 8 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ANALIRA was reminded on 
the sands why TOOFLESS is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
KNOT WHOLE.  In my day, no team with a 13-18-2 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, DARK ANGELS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, ONE BROW!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  JARCK 
expects the easy win by going 21 points down.  ABALONEA will find this a hard lesson! 
JARCK subdued ABALONEA.  RESURRECTION calls this fighting?  In my day...  TOLDERST of 
RESURRECTION knows how to pick 'em.  She challenged ONE BROW of GLORY BOUND TROLLS 
who is up by 23.  Now was this a wise move?  TOLDERST perhaps got hers just desserts, 
seeing as she was subdued by ONE BROW and ended up with 95 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Sorry Wally, my Bad.  I'll do the opposite now.  I'll have Jarck and Tolderst block 
One Brow and The Golden Fish coming up.  You can have both Billy and Betty Challenge 
Toofless until either you win or he leaves.  I promise not to Challenge Toofless AND 
to avoid Glory Bound Trolls so he cannot challenge me.  Have at him. -- Shocking Toad

Betty -- (sigh)  It's the bigness, isn't it?  You're from a big country, I'm just a 
dumb little fish, whoosh.  (sigh) -- Analira

One Brow -- You wrinkle that impressive brow at me, and I'm helpless, totally 
helpless. -- Abalonea

Jarck -- I always knew you swamp rats were dangerous. -- Yellow Pike

What I want to know is, what crime led the Khalhums Dwarf to abandon Khalhums and 
come HERE?  It seems such an unsuitable place for a dwarf. -- Nellistha

Prowess -- (bows deeply)  I am honored, greatly honored. -- Lubaya

Sorry Junk -- But you're so CUTE when you're flustered. -- Abalonea

Chyleya -- Yeah, you won!  Next time you won't.  And there will be a next time. -- 

Tolderst -- Damn, I really wanted to hurt you.  But I guess you won this match as 
well.  I'm not scared to die.  Are you?  We will meet a few more times.  And you talk 
about fighting. -- Sorry Junk
P.S.  I want my name changed!!!

Toofless -- You have my respect.  I won't bug you anymore.  I will be back.  Big 
Country is in chaos right now. -- Billy

Analira -- Sorry, ol' gal. -- Betty

All -- Just to let you know Wally The Wacko has been let go, fired, sent out of town, 
never to return.  The new manager will be (The Ice Man).  He has no compassion, no 
empathy and fights hard, very hard. We are tired of losing fights we should win.  It 

don't make sense.  So The Iceman will tighten up the ship. -- Big Country
P.S.  Ed -- Can I please get a list of all managers in this arena and teams.  Thank 
you. -- Big Country

     I'm sure the Saint will do this for you, but unfortunately, she's out of town at
     the moment.  Ask again next time, okay?  I don't have the updated lists so can't
     do it myself. -- Temp Ed.

                                     DEATH FEST

     The ferocious ghosts of former glories whispered across the wind swept sands of
DM 59; agonizing incessantly due to the diminutive demise of the Delarq arena known
as Illis.
     Tattered banners and forgotten memories wailed in the wind for a dynamic death
march to dawn once more upon the blood stained sands of the Delarq slow arena.
     The distant call crying for  a declaration of restoration amidst the ruin of the
all but forgotten Delarq arena carried to the far corners of Alastari; drawing the
Devious, the Diabolical, the Dangerous and the Down Challenging to cross blades and
wage warfare among an assemblage of new stables managed by the Known and Unknown;
willing to spill fresh blood, while carving their destiny during 15 Rounds of contest
driven combat to be known as the "Illis Incredibly Diabolical Delarq Death Fest".
     A lone cloaked figure huddled by lamplight in a remote outpost near the
crossroads of ElseWhere and ElseWhen; feverishly formulating the foundational
framework for the dawning of the Delarq Death Fest in DM 59, complete with
Gladiatorial Commission sanctioned prizes to promote the growing thirst for a Delarq
Slow Arena Death Festival.

     Delarq Death Fest Opening Round debuts the first turn immediately following the
Summer 2004 F2F Tourney and continues through the completion of 15 consecutive
     Death Fest points are Won or Lost ONLY in the DM 59 Delarq Slow Arena [Tourneys
DO NOT Add or Subtract from the Death Fest Point Scoring System]:

Death Fest Scoring Format:
Win =3D +2 pts
Loss =3D -1 pt
Kill =3D +5 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Death =3D -3 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Dark Arena Kill =3D +10 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Dark Arena Death =3D -5 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Revenged Blood Feud =3D +5 pts [successful Revenged Blood Feud provides Death Fest
contestants the opportunity to cancel out 3 pts for Death and 1 pt for Loss; while
gaining +1 pt overall for the Revenged Blood Feud in addition to the +2 pts for Win]

    DEATH FEST PRIZES will be awarded to the Top Ten Death Fest Stables on the basis
of Total Points*** accumulated during the 15 rounds of competition as follows:

1.  Favorite Weapon Knowledge for 1 (one) warrior ranked Initiate or higher on the
Final Round to be revealed by RSI to each of the Top Ten Death Fest Stables
2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters and NPCs [yet to be determined according to how
many DA Monsters and NPCs are available in DM 59 for Renaming]
3.  The Top Five Death Fest Stables will receive New Team Rollup Certificates as
follows:  1st (10), 2nd (8), 3rd (6), 4th (4) and 5th (2)
4.  Renaming Illis Arena for 6 months plus Receiving 6 months Free Play courtesy of
RSI will be awarded to the manager of the 1st Place Death Fest Stable
5.  Discussions are underway regarding a possible Special Award granted to the Illis
Iron Stable qualifiers who compete in 67 of a possible 75 fights during the course of
the 15 consecutive rounds of the Death Fest [Key Factor is How Many (?) stables will
be competing in the Death Fest without drawing away participation by current managers
in the remaining slow arenas!]  Therefore, it is important for all managers entering
stables in DM 59 for the upcoming Death Fest to contact RSI as soon as possible
regarding their participation in this contest so that a Final Ruling on the proposed
Illis Iron Stable Award can be issued by RSI.

***TieBreaker is determined on the Final Round by the DM 59 Newsletter Recognition
Rankings.  The stable with the Highest Ranked Active Gladiator is granted the
decision.  [Example: Warrior A and Warrior B are both listed in the Recognition
Rankings with 87 pts; however, because Warrior A is listed in the Recognition
Rankings ahead of Warrior B, then Warrior A is granted the TieBreaker Decision for
His/Her stable!]

     Opening Round Team Spotlight Bonus [minimum 15 paragraphs!]  Each Delarq Death
Fest competitor who writes a Team Spotlight featuring their Stable (Name) and
Managerial Alias [Gladiatorial Names Optional] in regards to competing in the Delarq
Death Fest will receive 25 pts added to His/Her opening round score.
     Illis Iron Stable Bonus [in addition to the proposed award awaiting RSI
approval!]  Any manager whose stable competes in at least 67 of the possible 75
fights during the 15 rounds of Death Fest receives 25 points added to His/Her final
overall score [this allows each stable the cushion of missing one round of
competition; plus up to 3 additional fights due to waiting for replacement rollups
from Deaths suffered either in Tourneys or during the Death Fest contest in DM 59
over the course of 15 rounds of competition!]
