                       99 Bottles Contest Standings -- Turn 15

     Postmaster's Hogan's Heroes finally posted a reasonable bottle gain this turn
despite only getting two wins.  His wins plus the least popular warrior and a kill
gave him a 4-bottle turn and keeps him 8 bottles ahead of Manager's Dead Superior
Forces.  Manager once again did very well in the arena and posted 4 wins so he was
unable to gain on the leading Postmaster.
     The big mover and shaker this turn was our own Ichabod Frothingslosh, putting
together an excellent 7-bottle gain by posting a perfect 5-0 turn in addition to two
stylemasters.  This moves Ichabod into second place only one bottle behind Manager,
and a total of 9 bottles out of the lead.  Ebenezer Frothingslosh's Flower Children
also put in a good showing with a 5-bottle turn of his own on the strength of his 4
wins and a stylemaster.  Eb moves into a tie for fifth place with Alfredo
Frothingslosh, 15 bottles out of the lead.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

It's good to be up here.  It just doesn't feel right when a parry-strike is sitting
on the throne, does it?  Much better when it's a good old fashioned lunger, like me!

I don't have a lot to write this time around, but hopefully I'll be getting out of
here shortly.  If I get my invite next turn, I'll spread the wealth about myself.

Laters,

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in BONSUR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for VENGEANCE SEEKERS, whose 0-1-0 this turn 
dropped them by 8 into 27th.  IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS stable has parlayed this turn's 
3-2-0 into a 9 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 12th place.  Good 
work, guys!  The WINTER ORCHARD guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched 
in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, 
BUBBA fought TENACIOUS and gained 28 points and contributed to MORGAN'S BOYS' 1-3-0.  
ESCHER has lost to ARROWROOT, falling 14 points, while helping make UNDEAD ARTISTS a 
2-3-0 turn.  SGT SCHULTZ challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to 
dethrone WASTELAND II's warrior.  And not without some honor, SGT SCHULTZ now claims 
the title and throne of Duelmaster of BONSUR.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on BONSUR, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was FLOWER CHILDREN.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
TALLAHASSE TINA from BEACH BABES was BONSUR's most challenged warrior this turn.  
Well now, what do you expect when someone like HIDA YAKAMO from CALL TO THUNDER 
challenges down 48 points to fight <RETARDED RV> of DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES?  Well, will 
you look at this, HIDA YAKAMO was subdued by <RETARDED RV>, and CALL TO THUNDER will 
have to explain why they made such a challenge in the first place.  I don't know 
about you, but ROCKWELL challenging down 23 points to DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES' <BOTTLE 
DRINKER>, is not really worthy of UNDEAD ARTISTS.  Well, surprise, surprise, ROCKWELL 
was bested by <BOTTLE DRINKER>, and by the way, ROCKWELL now has a recognition score 
of 91.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  BAYUSHI KACHIKO, does your manager know you're challenging 
down 28 points to fight ADAM from MORGAN'S BOYS?  It pains me to see warriors take 
advantage of the system like this.  BAYUSHI KACHIKO won victory over ADAM, as if it 
surprises anyone.  I don't know about you, but FOUNTAINHEAD challenging down 25 
points to DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES' &#164;, is not really worthy of WISH YOU WERE BEER.  
We're not surprised to hear that FOUNTAINHEAD won victory over &#164;, but I bet it 
would be interesting to hear why WISH YOU WERE BEER made such a challenge.  In a 
brave attempt, SCHMEIKEL from IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS challenged up 20 points to fight 
BIG FUN from the FLOWER CHILDREN stable.  SCHMEIKEL perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he won victory over BIG FUN and ended up with 120 recognition points.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  BEACH BABES has lost LUCY LUAU to 
the arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 
17-17-0?  I guess it was coming sooner or later, DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES has lost 
<AKARA>, and BONSUR is bound to miss her.  For a little while, at least.  Seriously 
now, is it really honorable for MALT LICKER from WISH YOU WERE BEER to kill <AKARA> 
and give DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  The Welcome 
Wench declares a free round for MICRO MIRACLE and all of WASTELAND II, for having 
revenged HOGAN'S HEROES' COL. KLINK for killing one of their comrades.  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, BONSUR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in BONSUR, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Alfredo -- I find it odd that only two of my six possible bloodfeuds over the last
three turns got through?  Perhaps I am not marking them correctly on my sheet.  Of
course Fountainhead failed to fight this time, but that still leaves three out of
five not getting through.  Seems odd even if you are avoiding....  Well, two more
tries this turn....  Good luck. -- Postmaster

Guido -- You were questioning my strategy with BFing Bullshot with Mama Bear.  It
probably was a flawed plan, but the idea was to get Mama Bear replaced without losing
a bottle for using the DA.  Unfortunately, Bullshot didn't finish the job.... --
Postmaster

Wasteland II -- Sorry about your Superman.  I forgot to mention that I had a special
shield made of Kryptonite. -- Col. Klink

Ishinomori -- Goldilocks will be missed.  (Well, not really.  Another one I was
hoping to get replaced without using the DA.  Thanks.)  You will pay the price for
your transgression. -- Postmaster

Ok, it's been four turns in a row that I've been challenged.  I am now 4-0 against
that "onslaught."  Anyone else want a piece of this?  Think of Magabe Ibuka as Adonis
in Japanese!

Bullshot?  Bullshot?  To me it's Bullsh*t and I'll let you put the proper vowel in
there. -- Jakuchu Ito

terrible enough all on her own. -- Applejack

Miami Mia - You were handy. - Tadaka

Fugue - You know, that looks like it hurt.  Nice learn there. - Yakamo no Oni

Miami Mia

Bottle Drinker -- May you choke on that bottle. -- Aloha Alice

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

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.
