                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Admit it, guys and gals, you all like to challenge me 'cuz I teach so well.
Look out, though:  last turn, Dune taught me an initiative skill.  If I'm mode, one
more will earn me my second rating.  Hot damn!  My numbers to date are:  65 F.E., 84
P.P., 25 learned skills (none burned), and one rating (Ad Ex decise).  And, because
Fungari asked so nice last turn, I'll challenge.  What the heck, maybe there's an
advantage. 

                    Oingo "the greatest" Boingo

P.S.  Simply Desserts -- I'm just good, I guess.  But just in case, I'll avoid to
enhance my odds to get Fungari.  'Cuz why?  Cuz asked.  Try it sometime!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  OSKSI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, ASTRAL KIN, 
but THE BALROGS was just too good to be stopped.  What was the name of that team who 
got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 514-426-22 you ask?  (Sure)  THE BALROGS' their name, 
and fighting's their game!  MVP award for DREUBRA?  THE BALROGS' proud of her after 
beating MX and getting 27 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  MX got smashed by 
DREUBRA, and lost 16 points!  SANDMAN thinks his 18-11-0 and studly character is good 
enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  OINGO BOINGO stopped SANDMAN dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that 
said OSKSI's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Elefont?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of ASTRAL KIN must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't 
know what THE BALROGS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from ASTRAL KIN, that's fer sher.  Like, is NUKEY HOUSER popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of OSKSI!  He's got a 3-2-0, is that good?  For sure, I 
was holding my breath when I found out DEEANN RAKOVICH challenged SPLINTERED SKY.  
After all, haven't AMERICAN APPRAISAL and ASTRAL KIN had a long standing duel in 
OSKSI?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but SPLINTERED SKY wants me to 
write about it since he overcame DEEANN RAKOVICH.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (QUICKSAND vs. SMEG MAGGOD, that 
is.) What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's 
what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

SimEarth -- Cute personal!  One of the better ones, definitely. -- Stan

I'm looking for a game, but it isn't in no stinking Library! -- Stan

Simply Desserts -- My apologies for your loss.  I expect a bloodfeud, I will only be
here until the face to face, so get your shots in while you can. -- Smeg Maggod

The Man -- You don't need a map to find the ball, I see.  I just wish I didn't look
so much like a ball to you! -- Graph

Deeann Rakovich -- (groan)  I'm going to have to give up this game.  It's too rough
for me. -- The Goalie

Quicksand -- Ah-HA!  I KNEW you had those fives! -- Go Fish

Yrohk -- No balrogs in today's simulation, sorry.  Well, sort of sorry. -- SimEarth

Dat Nguyen -- Your behavior was... Not Hoyle!

Dune -- (abashed look)  Oh.  Well...I'll put a veil over my armor!  Yeah, that's what
I'll do. -- Go Fish

Yrohk -- Yes, and it was DRASTIC.  Right off the bottom of the paper.  Or maybe the
top, I was too confused to tell. -- Graph

Poppa Balrog -- Where are all the other GAPPDA guys?  Osksi is practically a ghost
town!  Whatever happened to the Elephont? -- The Arcane Kid

PB -- You know we run 'em ALL; whatever we catch, we keep!  And what's with the high
tone, yer Balroggyness?!  Huh, yer forgettin' how ya used to coach the Darkling
Lords' when I was runnin' them! -- Havoc

Balrog -- Judging by the success of my short-timers, there's no need to be too picky
re: recruits.  A few shots of DNA-enhancing steroidals (e.g. stat raises) and we're
in business! -- Kid Arcane (to quote a favorite legend: "When I met you last, I was
but the pupil.  The circle is now complete.  I am the master now!) or something like
that...

Gamma Ray -- Considering the experience and skill imbalances all around...well, let's
just say it:  you're pathetic. -- Helias Sol

Mary Retzlaff -- I like it when a Bloodfeud goes smoothly.  I also enjoyed that
little shriek you made at the end, right before I knocked your face into the sand. --
Vector Unstable

John Maher -- There's still room on the D.A. run...your manager is probably booking
your passage this minute. -- Splintered Sky
P.S.  If you're wondering why I didn't even try to learn anything from you, well...I
didn't figure you'd have much to teach.

Nukey Houser -- Talk about a style mismatch!!  Let's see what happens when I've
gained a few (dozen) more skills! -- Vagabond Dream

K19 -- (laughing) Your sandals were laced together, you clumsy fool!!! -- Star Shard

Oingo Boingo -- I think I can, I think I can, I think I can... -- Dune

Go Fish -- All too familiar.  Where's Dune when you need him? -- Quicksand

To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

Assurnasirbanipal invites all to use his computerized warrior management tool.  The
program is the most extensive management tool ever created.  It was meant to run on a
PALM OS PDA, but will run (emulated) on a PC or MAC.  You can get this program on the
web at: http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir

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

                 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,
russtulp@aol.com.  Or diplo Darque Forces (428) or Dynastic (433) in Arena 45.
