                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Man, Dune, that has to be an embarrassing way for one of your style to go to the 
Isle.

     Well, as I'm fighting blind (I think, I might even miss this turn), I'm not sure 
who I'll be challenging, and who I'll be avoiding.  Next turn, I've sent my challenge 
to Steve Sax.  You see, there's a name that you could proudly display across the 
shoulders of a shirt.  Not while with the Yankees mind you, but seriously, could you 
see "The Man" emblazonned across a #6 Cardinals Jersey?  I think not.

     Of course, a great pitcher doesn't have to win all the one on one battles.   The 
game is about the long haul, relying on your teammates.  Sure a three-run HR in the 
bottom of the ninth can win a game in one shot, but there is more to the beautiful 
game than that.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail OSKSI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as SIMPLY DESSERTS is pushed 
out of top team by GORMENGHAST, who came from 4th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep 
the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for GAMES LIBRARY, 
whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 10th.  UNBELIZEABLE stable has parlayed 
this turn's 1-1-0 into a 6 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 8th 
place.  Good work, guys!  The GORMENGHAST guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to 
be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And 
let's see, FUNGARI fought GO FISH and gained 21 points and contributed to THE 
BALROGS' 3-2-0.  ALTUN HA has lost to SIMEARTH, falling 17 points, while helping make 
UNBELIZEABLE a 1-1-0 turn.  Well done, OSKSI, the Duelmaster was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Perhaps PETE HARNISCH is not as thrilled, being challenged 4 
times.  STEVE SAX challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES' warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, 
and PETE HARNISCH remains OSKSI's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Elefont uses trolls in 
their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  THE BALROGS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were OSKSI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided THE BALROGS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES.  Anyone surprised?  In a brave attempt, MARY RETZLAFF from 
AMERICAN APPRAISAL challenged up 18 points to fight QUICKSAND from the SIMPLY 
DESSERTS stable.  MARY RETZLAFF perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was 
overcame by QUICKSAND and ended up with 75 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that OSKSI has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in OSKSI and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in OSKSI again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15

26 July 2003
     Citizens of Alastari, a bright dawn has risen.  While you slept, a pernicious
force has entered the once-fair City of Aruak.  It fought alongside their treasured
warriors, it drank with their fans, and it slept with their women.  Now the masks are
coming off.
     Warriors, be afraid...be very afraid.  After years of Andorian managers ranting
that Aruak is the safest city in Alastari, the Frothingslosh Syndicate has selected
Aruak City as the home for its next epic 'contest'--Murder by Numbers II.  Our spies
have selected the warriors for extermination, and the executioners have had several
months to prepare.  Now a new age of darkness will descend upon Aruak, as the
Syndicate and its allies bring an entirely new level of competition to the arena!
Downchallenges!  Assassinations!  Small poodles as hors d'oeuvres!
     The Murder by Numbers II 'rules' will be announced next cycle.  However, we
invite all managers, from all corners of Alastari, to come to Aruak City and take
part...in one way or another.  Help defend the honor of a long heralded haven for the
pure, or join the forces of change in their siege of the ice-cream and cake
stronghold of the Dukes of Nerf-Dueling!
     This exercise is not for either the faint of heart or the weak willed.  Blood
will flow, brains will leak, and beer will be chugged.  Either way, we welcome you
with open arms and gleaming blades.
     This public service announcement has been brought to you by Frothingslosh Epic
Contests (tm), the number 86, and the letter 'K'.

           *     *     *     *The Third Annual Turf War*     *     *     *
     Yes, it's time again for alliances to go to war!  TW3 will be held in DM 47

(North Fork) at a date to be  specified later--right after Crip's Incomprehensible
Contest is over...but I'm sure everyone wants to get their teams there soon!  Here
are the rules:

1.  Each alliance must have a leader declare the arrival of his alliance.  The leader
    will be responsible for verifying any and all teams/managers who declare to the
    alliance he/she is leading.
2.  Each manager, team declaring for the contest must have approval of the leader,
    donate one Roll-up Certificate ($5) to the prize pot (send it to me by diplo, by
    snail, or a note to customer service), and declare his/her team by diplo, p-ad or
    snail.
3.  Each team may declare one warrior as champion.  All points scored by a champ are
    double!
4.  Prizes are as follows (mostly...there WILL be some things added as the prize pot
    grows with entry donations--this list is not final!)
    *  Highest scoring alliance -- Rename Arena 47 for a period of 6 months, one half
       of the total prize pot donated; roll-up certs.
    *  The Alliance with the most returns from the DA will get to re-name the DA
       monsters for a period of 6 months.
    *  The alliance with the most warriors listed as style masters will get to pick
       the Alastari city/arena to host the next Grand Tournament.
    *  The warrior with the most front page honors/awards will have the Arenamaster
       named after him for a period of 6 months.
    *  The Alliance with the most front page Honors/Awards will have the honor of
        picking the *slow* arena to host the Fifth Annual Turf War.
    *  The team with the most listings as Style Master will find out the favorites of
       one of their warriors.
    *  The warrior with the most listings as Style Master will fight at my expense
       for five turns (I will transfer to the manager's account).
    *  The Alliance with the most kills will be able to re-name the stand-in warriors
       for a period of 6 months.
    *  The warrior that scores the most total points will fight at my expense for 5
       turns (I will transfer $7.50 to the manager's account).
    *  The team that scores the most total points will receive an extra share of
       roll-up certs from the prize pot.
     There may be more categories to come, and the prize pot still has to be
divided...I'm open to category/prize ideas--and further donations to the prize pot.
     The contest will run for *TEN* turns; prizes will be awarded at the end of the
11th turn.
     Scoring will be as follows:
* 5 points per fight, doubled for each of the following conditions met:
     -- Two Alliance     -- Champion
     -- Challenge        -- Two Champions
     -- Bloodfeud        -- Challenger losing
     -- Kill
     (Note:  DA losses are exempt, but DA wins will be *tripled*!!!  Ex:  Happy
Slasher goes to the DA and dies, no points are lost.  If he wins, his team scores 60
points!  If he was a champ, he scores 120 points!)
     Use the following chart to calculate scores:
Conditions Met:       0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7
Points Per Fight:     5    10    20    40    80   160   320   640
* Awards/Honors and Style Masters will each be awarded points also.  Find the total
number of each (do note add Awards and Style Masters together) and consult the graph
below.  Champs that score an award or style master count as two.
     1 --   5      7 --  320
     2 --  10      8 --  640
     3 --  20      9 -- 1280
     4 --  40     10 -- 2560
     5 --  80     11 -- 5280
     6 -- 100     (x2 for each extra)
Note -- These categories *count as "triple"*--they will be figured for each team,
*AND* again for each alliance *as well as* for each warrior!
*  Each and every mention in the Spy Report is worth 5 points...period.
*  TVs will be scored on the same scale as Awards/Style Masters, but the total points
will be x10.  TC's will be scored as TV's, but x10 more.
Number of TV/TC's          Points Scored (TV/TC)
     1      50/ 500
     2     100/1000
     3     200/2000
     4     400/4000
     +     x2/ x2 (for each extra)
     Each alliance will start with 5000 points, scores for *fights* will be added to
the winner's total *AND* deducted from the losers.
     Come  one and all, defend your turf and the honor of your alliance...or your
own!

1 August 2003
     Assurnasirbanipal invites you to Talcama to participate in the third BATTLE
ROYAL contest.  It is a Delarquan contest so brutal that even some of Talcama's most
notable managers will refuse to participate.  The rules are simpler than any other
contest:  You may not avoid any other contest team.  There are no silly rules for who
can and can't compete.  Any team in Talcama is eligible to compete.  The scoring is
also quite simple (+1 for a win, +1 for a kill (+1 for the win), -1 for a loss) and
the first team to reach 25 points is the winner.
     Scoring will be live--the results for the turn posted in the newsletter.  The
winner will be able to fight their contest team in Talcama for free for 6 months but
more importantly will win a contest against some of the best managers who play the
game in one of the hardest contests in the game.
     First turn for BATTLE ROYAL 3 is Talcama Turn 465, which is due August 30.
