                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, unlike my fellow Townsvillain and predecessor in the top slot, Mojo Jojo, I
like to keep things short and sweet, so let's get this road on the show:

First, to quote one of my favorite philosophers, "I have seen the top of the
mountain, and it is good."  Indeed, it is, and I intend to keep looking at the top of
the mountain for a while, thank you very much.

Sir Vile, that was an excellent fight.  I didn't think I was going to make it past
that second minute, there.  Thanks for the skills, and good luck on the Isle.

Sunny Side Up, it's a shame you're retiring, because I was looking forward to facing
you.  You've graced our arena with beauty and dignity, and I wish you luck as well.

Torlec, never let it be said that I wasn't a fighting champion; I think you deserve
another title shot, so my challenge is going out to you.  Let's see what you've got.

That's all I've got for this week, so to the rest of you, keep your swords sharp and
your butts off the arena floor.

-- Hotta Watta, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of KOLACT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Say what you will about 
blind luck and dirty fighting, but SIR AGLIO will tell you 581-439-25 is nothing to 
laugh at...  Practice pays for PAPPY WHAPPY, who pummelled O. PROCELLARUM, to pocket 
18 points.  O. PROCELLARUM certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to PAPPY WHAPPY and losing 9 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new 
Duelmaster were disappointed by MUNCHIES, of TERRAPIN STATION, who despite a 12-5-0 
couldn't overcome KOLACT's Number 1.  Word has it one team in KOLACT is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in SIR AGLIO 
are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of TOWNSVILLAINS, so did that sorry team shy from SIR 
AGLIO Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, NICHLAUS is the most challenged warrior.  Do my ears deceive me?  
WEASLE (outclassed by 27 points) challenged SULTAN OF SWING, in what promises to be a 
fight.(!) Soopreyes, soopreyes!  WEASLE emerges from the fray 1 points the richer.  
Good show, WEASLE!  Willing to win at any cost is BLING BLING, who challenged TYCHO, 
12 points junior.  Our sympathies, TYCHO!  I thought BLING BLING showed great skill 
and promise when it defeated TYCHO.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Does MONGREL HORDE care so little for their fallen comrade, CREEPY DOG?  
TORLEC was heard at Don Corleone's sneering...  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; 
it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  KOLACT, I leave you now.  
The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Don Corleone's.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir

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

Quicksand -- Ack!  I stepped in it AGAIN. -- Kepler

Lenny Baxter -- If you'd taken just a minute longer, I might have been able to learn
more.  Remember that next time. -- O. Procellarum

Exedus -- Drat.  Go away. -- Tycho

Ojo Tango -- They say it takes two, but I just can't get the hang of it. -- Luna Moth

Sir Prise -- Yep.  And I bet it surprised you even more when I knocked you over at
the end of the fight and buried you in the sand.  I don't usually go that far with a
defeated opponent, but I just felt like it, you know?  It was that kind of day. --
Cleo

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

Couples -- Go away...long walk, short pier...keep chuggin till your feet get wet past
your eyeballs.  You've started to become a familiar face, and I ain't family. --
Weasle

Sultan of Swing -- My perfect record.  Down the drain.  Down...the...drain.
OOOOoooo...you'll pay for that. -- Vanna

Felicitas -- You're improving, shortcakes.  But...there's still a gap...s'what
separates the standard fighter (you) from the grandiose-type fighter. (me)  -- Greta

Quicksand -- Another of Qubit's down-feuding (with mustard) honorarium-types, you
hunk you.  Such service from the male servicers. Pardons if I try and avoid this
turn. -- Gracie

Shocking Toad -- Good for you, doing what you gotta do.  But then, that's kinda your
motto anyways. <grin>  Stay safe and we'll try and whop-it-to-you when you get back.
-- Still

Quaqsimoto -- It isn't polite to whap your pappy, junior. -- Pappy Whappy

Hand of G-d -- That's a rather explosive attack you have there.  Ouch. -- Baboon
Kaboom

Hotta Watta -- Nice challenge.  I hate it when I stumble around aimless with
exhaustion. -- Sir Vile

     It's so much better if you're aimless with energy, isn't it? -- Ed.

Exedus -- Could we have looked more inept in that fight? -- Sir Occo

Obelisk -- My manager HATED that fight! -- Sir Pent

Trax -- No, Palmer didn't hire me, I swear. -- Sir Ingomyelic

Munchies -- My manager HATED that fight! -- Quibble

Still -- We hope you view the skills we're teaching you worth a few losses. -- Qubit,
re: Gracie's transgression

Nichlaus -- Just don't go doing something foolish and train a stat. -- Qubit

Floyd -- I HATED those fights! -- Sultan, just reinforcing

Pappy Whappy -- I'm disappointed you trained a stat. -- Quagsimo

Shocking Toad -- Have a nice trip!  Malaysia?  Is that west of Alastari? -- Sultan

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
                    Tripwire -- Of Wolf and Man -- 1

26 July 2003
     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

           *     *     *     *The Third Annual Turf War*     *     *     *
     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!
