                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Doesn't say much for Jhelum if a Kung Fu Master is the only one who'll contest
the Duelmastership.  Huh.

                                        G.A. Custer

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHELUM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with ULTIMATE RAGE?  
He actually beat JHELUM's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at DIFFERENT HATS while they watched HUSBAND clobber 
PERICLES.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
VETERAN MERCENARY was reminded on the sands why G.A. CUSTER is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't 
it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into 
the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, WATERWORKS!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at DIFFERENT HATS 
ain't reelin'!  WATERWORKS' mad!  What do people see in PERICLES?  His 5-4-0?  DOGS 
OF WAR ain't talkin', but he's got 21 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

To:  Entrants in the ZalCon 2, ZalCon Reloaded Contest
     Fellow Warriors -- I am hereby informing you of the styles of my fighters, as
required per the rules of the ZalCon 2 contest.  This information is true to the best
of my knowledge, and is to be used to aid you in selecting whom you are going to
challenge and avoid.  (Should, gods and goddesses forbid, one of my characters die in
the contest, including my MVP, I will then inform you of the style of my replacement
character.)
     *  Tylamar Holimion is a Parry-Riposte who is a possible winner.
     *  Seebo Garrick is an average Wall of Steel.
     *  Feng is a surprisingly skilled Basher.
     *  Gabriel Willowsmith is a very skilled Wall of Steel.
     *  Anastrianna Nailo (my personal favorite, but telling others is a definite no-
        no!) is one of the best Lungers I have ever had!
     These are the member of the IMMORTALS VI team, which were all recently put
together by one of the best scouts in the business.  Be forewarned, good managers and
warriors, my fighters, while lacking experience in the arenas, are already
experienced in their pasts! -- Dagan LifeGiver, mgr.

Deacon -- (smugly)  The bigger they are.... -- The Corsican

Husband -- (surprised look)  Ah...that would be a "house-husband," perhaps?  I'm sure
you could keep a houseplant alive if you really tried. -- Pericles

10 January 2004
ZalCon2 Updates (1/9/04)

     The contest will be starting on the turn due February 23rd, 2004 and run for 20
turns.
     Only one team will be allowed for each manager in the contest, regardless of
whether additional teams are announced as contest entries.  No exceptions for any
reason.
     The Style Master points should read that there is +1 point for beating a member
of your own style even if the warrior is not registered for the contest.
     Rolling points for consecutive turns as Style Master means that your warrior
gets the extra point every turn after the first 3 that he continues to hold the
title.
     The points for Quality Wins should be clarified to read the winning warrior is
ranked below by the number of recognition points needed for each bonus point at the
start of the fight.  For example, Warrior A (3-2-0, 17) beats Warrior B (4-1-0, 35)
and receives 2 bonus points under Quality Win for the 18 point difference in the
ranking.
     I believe that is all the clarifications for the moment, please feel free to
email, diplo, call or write me with any other questions or concerns about the
contest.

                                    CHAOTIC WINDS
     Once, long ago, the four Winds of Time descended upon Alastari like a TEMPEST of
epic proportions, they slew everything within their all-encompassing reach.  They
left nothing.  In their wake lay smoldering ruins.
     In their haste they sped towards the center of this great land like a colossal
giant would step across an ocean.  The four storms picked up momentum on their way
towards each other.  A collision was eminent.
     The first storm wind, the oldest and wisest of the four was named APEXALUS.  The
second, FLAGGSTAFF, was the quickest and loudest entity ever created.  The third Wind
of Time was MATRIATIN, neither old or young, quick or slow, but fierce and feisty all
the same.  The forth wind, ASSAMITHIUS, the youngest yet most creative in its means
of destruction.
     When finally they merged at the center of ALASTARI, an incredible destructive
explosion occurred.  And when the smoke and debris cleared they were one.  CHAOS was
born.
     And Chaos spread across the diminished lands reeking havoc and doom with its
passing, and destroying allover again that which already lay in ruin.
