                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, huh.  Our fight reports seem to have vanished into some distant void, and
we are doing all this--the personals, the column, anything else we might conceivably
do (not much, in my estimation)--by reference to, er, "scrying by lightning."  Not an
art familiar to me, but that's the way it goes sometimes.
     I am told that I achieved a continuation of this position by "savagely"
defeating the Convicted Assassin.  Good.  That is the way he SHOULD be defeated, if
he can't be killed.  Killing him would be my preference, but my manager can't stand
the sight of blood.  Or maybe it's the arenamaster.
     And while I've got the floor (figuratively speaking, because I don't do floors)
here, why haven't I graduated?  I, personally, feel that I am READY.

                                    Sharan Khor

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for OSKSI.  Too bad, GAMES LIBRARY, but OUR 
HIGHEST HONOR was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for SOLDIER #4?  OUR 
HIGHEST HONOR's proud of him after beating DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and getting 17 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  FREAK SHOW's match with DONKEY KONGDOM cost him a loss 
of 8 points!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, BUT SHARAN 
KHOR is still the Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  Who was 
the wiseguy that said OSKSI's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Elefont?  Don't 
look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Can GAMES 
LIBRARY's MAUR TOLIDAR be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 gotta leave.  OSKSI is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Soldier #1 -- According to the information at hand, you challenged me, I defeated
you, and the fight was one-sided.  It took two minutes, but it was one-sided?  Well,
I guess these announcers can get a bit carried away with their images.  But anyway,
ah...good fight?  Whatever. -- Domino Joe

Soldier #4 -- Well, at least you had to use both hands.  That shows I was resisting
you, yes? -- Maur Tolidar

Otis 3 -- But I wanted to WIN my beginner's duel.  That wasn't too much to ask, was
it? -- Uhleane Wiel

Otis #2 -- Huh, I suppose by losing to you, I proved myself the beginner that the
announcer named me?  Bummer.  I'll have to try harder. -- Vorhaus Charn
P.S.  Maybe a different aftershave.  Or a manicure before the fight.  Something.
It's all a question of image, is it not?

Khalhums Dwarf #7 -- I wasn't actually savage, it was just hyperbole on the part of
the announcer.  I was FIRM, yes, but that is required to do honor to the position I
hold.  You're just a wimp. -- Sharan Khor

Otis #5 -- You call that a fight?  If I'd been TRYING, you would have found it
harder. -- Embezzling Scribe #11

Freak Show -- Hmm, you would make an excellent sacri-- leading guest at our next
major meeting.  I'm sure you would like to come?  I can arrange for an invitation. --
Cult Member #6

Soldier 2 -- You are all just picking on me because I'm a dwarf, aren't you?  But I
came by my title here honestly, and I pay my taxes, and you're being speciesist and
UNFAIR. -- Osksi Noble #1

Sharan Khor -- You are SUCH a wimp!  It took you FOUR minutes to defeat me, which
just PROVES what a wimp you are, how totally worthless and undeserving.  If they'd
let me use my poisoned dagger, you would not have survived that, and this city would
be the BETTER for it. -- Convicted Assassin #543

25 September 2006
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!

         without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including
         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
Bloodfeuds:
     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
         -10 will be given to the team who violates this.
Special Conditions:
     a.  I reserve the right for all final decisions.
     b.  If I make a mistake, I'll multiply the points by 2.

         x10.
     d.  Each alliance begins with zero (0) points.
     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
         for.

PRIZES:
     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!
