Ah! I KNEW I had it in me to smite demons! Great stuff, demon-smiting. I'll have to do it more often. Blue Ruin SPY REPORT Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again! Practice pays for C. MONSTER, who pummelled BLUE SUEDE, to pocket 10 points. Now I can't insult T. ZER, as she has gloriously dueled to the top. Oh great new Duelmaster!!! (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in ZUKAL is using psychics to predict wins. They lead a charmed life! And how sociable are ZUKAL's warriors? Come, let us see. The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on... Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor. Do not think spyreporting in ZUKAL is the highlight of my life. My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character. Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZUKAL? On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME T.

THE DEAD W L K TEAM NAME SLAIN BY TURN Revenge? PERSONAL ADS A Captured Orc? What am I supposed to do with him? He's slovenly, quite undisciplined. A waste of my time. -- The Prussian I hate it when they bring out the Dangerous Criminals. I just don't have the right mind-set for dealing with Dangerous Criminals, and they instinctively know it. -- Blue Haven D. Baser -- Ah, thought you'd turn me into, I dunno, dyed agate or something, eh? Not THIS time, buster brown. -- Malachite C.Monster -- But I'm afraid of monsters! They hide in the closet and drool on my shoes! -- Blue Suede *dark look* There are worse things they could do on your shoes. -- Ed. Del'Borasan, a.k.a. Ambitious Guard -- The crowd jeered at you because you dress funny and your haircut is a joke. -- Blue Ruin P.S. And you don't hold your liquor well. I invite those of you who have the good fortune to be Orcs to join me in forming the International Brother-and-Sisterhood for the Betterment of Orcs. We shall campaign to stamp OUT this foul calumny perpetrated by the Commission, wherein they indicate that we are like wild animals captured and thrust into the arena for a raree show. It is a LIE! Let us have an end to this! -- Geroge Zoar, Free Orc Er, ah, could anybody direct me to the (pause to consult note) "Dark Doorway"? Or something like that. These directions are all bloodstained, but I DO like to give satisfaction. -- Karolvingar, Demon at Large 22 October 2004 Youngblood's Three and Out Contest I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what I think will be an awesome contest. If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before, here is your chance. The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see fit to run in the contest. So now that I have your attention, here are the rules (like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later). 1. Any manager participating can enter one team, only. 2. No sandbagging whatsoever. (I will keep up with it, every turn.) 3. No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts. 4. All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are eliminated. 5. If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest. This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of the contest. 6. If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the contest. 7. If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is active in the contest. 8. If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the contest, no questions asked. 9. Challenges are legal, up or down. 10. Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that warrior, of course, is accounted the winner. 11. All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be awarded to the winners of the contest. <<<PRIZES>>> As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded to the first and second place managers. So the majority and minority of the rollups will be determined when all are accumulated. Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be a fierce and challenging contest. <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!! ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST. YOUNGBLOOD of WENSINWASIN 11 November 2004 All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct and up to date. Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com. As you may guess, replace the at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the web). I have information on the following alliances: ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada, Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ, Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk, Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection, Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel. If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know. If you are a member of some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know. If you were at any point in your past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know. Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to still be in the same alliance when they return. Even having everyone in an alliance go inactive doesn't change anything. If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's another thing you have to let me know.... The Saint, keeper of lists P.S. If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore this. LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS BLUE RUIN was bested by T. ZER in a 1 minute master's Title fight.
