                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wouldn't you just KNOW it?  I get the title, and I get the graduation notice,
and Sun Tsu is off somewhere partying, and I don't get a column.  So this is a
belated column, so?  I'm going to write it anyway.
     Baqa, you made a good try, and with more experience, you'll do even better, but
not, thank the gods, against me.
     If anyone wants to know, my mediocre characteristics are:  10(1)-14-7-17-15-15-
8(1).  I do, curse it all, little damage.  Morning star (ick, I'm NOT a morning
person), moderate/very low, bash and parry tactics.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  LIGHT OF HONOR posted a nice gain, to come in 
3rd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Ready for a laugh?  SOME BODIES fought their way 
to attain a 0-4-0.  Perhaps they had best lay off the tavern-hopping!  DOGS OF WAR 
had cause to celebrate, after SUPER CHE got 19 points by beating FANA.  FANA 
certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to SUPER CHE and losing 
14 points in the process!  BAQA successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
LYSISTRATA of DOGS OF WAR.  Does JHELUM have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  
Word has it one team in JHELUM is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent 
to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of OUT OF FAEYRIE 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of ABBY NORMAL, so did that sorry team shy from OUT OF 
FAEYRIE  
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHELUM is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing 
Spyreports for JHELUM?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Sun Tsu -- I knew he needed more sleep, but he said he was fine.  Are you going to
tell a well-muscled 6'10" warrior when to go to bed? -- PB

Custer -- Because this hairy dwarf is going to show no mercy whatsoever when he meets
you on the sands next.  I showed the respect you deserve for being an elder military
man, but you give nothing in return. -- Baga

Sulacco -- Wow, you're really good!  How Scallaitis ever beat you I'll never know! --
PB

Sherman -- 'Behold!  The Red Planet?'  Did I really say that? -- Fana

Arbor Vitae -- 'Twas a good bid, truly.  You didn't actually think you could win
though, right? -- Metagrumbler

All -- Does anyone know what the Hellenic Flu is? -- PB

Tobacco Rose -- "Deosil go by waxing moon...." -- Calliech

These are late, but so what?  Better late than never, right?

Sulacco -- You greasy cucaracha! -- Super Che the Super Annoyed

Fana -- Er, very determined of you, ma'am.  Good work.  Good thing you aren't a
Southerner! -- Sherman

Who wants an Orc around the house?  They eat too much. -- Lysistrata

The Big Nasty and Stik -- Custer is hiding under his bed.  He may or may not have
intended the kill, but he wasn't SUPPOSED to do it.  Myself, I think it was an
accident, because he usually can't manage to do stuff like that. -- Sun Tsu

We now return you to the regularly scheduled personals.  Thank you.

18 July 2003
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
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.
                               --*  The Firm *--
                    Sungod -- Sadists F2FII -- 62
                    Dark Spirit -- Unknowns XX -- 15
                    Youngblood -- Wensinwasin -- 43

     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 Frothingslosh Syndicate

     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!
