                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, this will make a change!  Both The Shocker and I myself will be
graduating.  I know it hasn't been long, only twenty cycles, which is supposed to be
the minimum regular-arena preparation for the Isle, but it SEEMED long.  It seemed
     But now, we leave.  Both of us alive, what a wonder!  Just so you know, though,
I am NOT going to travel in the company of The Shocker.  She has NO conversation.


                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for ORANGE, who flew 
up 6 points in the rankings after mashing KIRSTIE ALLIE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  In front of all the crowds, SHOCKING took the Duelmaster's crown for 
his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just 
get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid THE GOLDEN FISH, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does NIANIA really have that 
many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  THE GOLDEN FISH + Weapons 
That go Boom = 071409B + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
JENNIFER LOPEZ would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to 
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the NIANIA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  
Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown

Korvoskol Turo, Veteran Mercenary -- I'll bet that on days like this, you wish you
were back in the field, pulling guard duty along some boring border, don't you? --
P.S.  So why am *I* not graduating?  I've got more experience than Maretha does!  And
I'm MUCH more attractive.  I have a certificate to prove it!

Korvoskol Turo, Veteran Mercenary -- Golly, you must have done something to really,
really piss off the arenamaster to have to fight twice in one day! -- Mari Coy

Shocking -- I should let you win so YOU could graduate, too, shouldn't I?  Well, I'm
not gonna.  You want to win, you've got to work for it, bub. -- Spike McGold

Jennifer Lopez -- I was gonna say nice things 'cause you're a good looking babe, but
then you went and hit me!  I don't like that in a woman.  And you're a golem,
besides.  A man-hating, nasty-tempered golem! -- Larsen E.

M. Laymoness Chardinee, purveyor of insurance -- Gods, that pegs you right!
Purveyor.  The images that conjures up...well, it suits you. -- Spike McGold

Seef Haraine -- The jealousy, I feel sure, is a two-way street.  After all, YOU can't
wear gorgeous clothes, or your fur gets all rubbed off.  Ha! -- Mellisande

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!

         must be in the Adepts or lower brackets on the turn they are declared
         without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including
         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
     a.  Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns.  However, the same warrior may not
         be used all four turns.  4 turns means 4 separate warriors.  A penalty of

     e.  Dark Arena may be used on the first turn of every warrior with no penalty
         (this means a warrior with 0 FE).
     f.  TVs won after the contest begins gain a 25 point one time score once the
         tourney reports are posted in the NL.
     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the
         same conditions as noted for TVs.
     h.  NO switching alliance once verified by an alliance that a team has declared
     i.  Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5.
     Turf Wars are a "Winner Takes All" type contest.  All prizes and 100% of the RU
Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:
     a.  renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena;
     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!
