                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yep, it's me.  Another surprise.  Another great match, and another of those 
great Aruak City wastes overcome.  Sometimes I surprise even myself.
     Who will I be challenging?  Nobody?  Will I avoid?  Not this time.  You see, I 
am abdicating the throne.  This is very unusual for one of Kennelworth's clan, for 
you see, The Consortium collects DM thrones and has amassed 400+.  But, I am one of 
the few exceptions.  Being "maxed" for the FTF Champs, I have been tapped to give it 
a shot.  So I will not be fighting the turn you read this.
     May the best warrior rise to the throne.  There are many here just as worthy as 
I am.  Good luck to all.
     Big Dog

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARUAK CITY!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown 
for DO IT AGAIN, whose 1-2-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 15th.  WAR-C-KERS 
stable has parlayed this turn's 3-0-0 into a 8 space move up the rankings.  This 
brings them up to 7th place.  Good work, guys!  The SCARLET KNIGHTS guild has had a 
3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, THE SINGING BANDIT fought IRON MAGRU and gained 21 
points and contributed to GERFEL'S FRIENDS' 2-3-0.  ELMER FUDD has lost to 
THUNDERBLADE, falling 23 points, while helping make LORDS OF CHAOS a 3-2-0 turn.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, BIG DOG has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, VAN HELSING now claims the title and throne 
of Duelmaster of ARUAK CITY.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Bulldog Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the WAR-C-KERS stable was the most avoided 
team this turn.  Come on ARUAK CITY, what are you afraid of?  And guess who avoided 
WAR-C-KERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was ANIMAL FARM.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was SCARLET KNIGHTS II's warrior 
VAN HELSING.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a 
brave attempt, CALFSKIN from BULLDOGS challenged up 20 points to fight VAN HELSING 
from the SCARLET KNIGHTS II stable.  CALFSKIN perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing 
as she was defeated by VAN HELSING and ended up with 96 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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

is definitely a much greater influence.  The larger warriors much more often get the 
apparently 'lucky' damage ratings.  Your observations are right on.  As to the exact 
ratio of one stat to the other to determine damage rating base lines, I can only 
guess.  But if you had the raw data from that makes up terrabloods damage chart, and 
averaged/smoothed out the variance, you might get a decent ratio prediction (although 
there is the trap that probably a lot of the data entered are more often than not the 
exceptions).  Perhaps you could just use the chart itself to get an idea by taking 
the chart's centerlines.  Otherwise, your guess is as good as any, but I think you're 
in the ball-park (2-1, or 5-2, str-sz) -- Adie

Dartor -- Woof! ... Did I just say woof? <scratching her head> Well, my point is that 
Mismosh was quite a stretch for any warrior.  One point of will into size and you'd 
have had a palindrome!  Do you try exceptionally hard to avoid the dark arena?  I do 
to some extent, but my tolerance threshold is pretty thin.  Back to design... -- Adie

Q.O.W. -- General design principles you can apply to many/most styles.  What are 
they?  Well, I've got a few ideas that seem logical to me, let me throw them out so 
newer players or vets can consider them when transforming RUs into gods or worse.
  1) Wit and/or Will, most important.  The more the better.  Wit is skill learning, 
Will is training and helps physicals.
  2) Look for extremes.  Super high in some stats, super low in others.  Preferably 
super high for wit/will, see 1.  But ST is great high, CN high or low, DF high or 
low, SP lower, SZ any.  Just general guides, but you can go other extremes.
  3) Balance stats against each other's weakness.  If one type of stat is high, a 
certain other can usually be lower.  In general you can group them into spongy CN+ 
SP-, or fast CN- SP+.  You can offset SP with high WT/WL for decise, which is
preferable.  Just look for a weakness and try to offset it by emphasizing what it's 
got for its advantage.  Frail warriors are good if they are fast and can hit hard, or 
have lots of attack.  If their physicals are too low, look for a low burn style.  If
WL/DF/ST are moderate, probably not a defensive (not enough parry) unless you want a 
fast one.  If DF is low, better have lots of WT/WL/ST for attack, or pick a high 
attack style.  If DF is high, you can have less of almost anything else, but it 
doesn't get you decise, so it'll need to be spongy or fast (and don't skimp on WT/WL, 
see rule 1).  Extremes are good, but remember to offset weaknesses from any low stat 
with a high stat that makes the low stat seem useless anyways (the low stat is there 
just so the points can emphasize what you really want).  I hope that helps for you 
designers out there. -- Adie

Kennelworth -- I'd like to learn that spell Fandil used!  "His voice rang like 
iron..." and left the attacker reeling.  Very nice, very Fandil like.  I am thankful 
for his help. -- Adie

G. Puerco -- I find it interesting how nobody seems to remember that Andorian dark 
arenas are non-fatal, but that such gladiators merely walk away retired. -- Adie

     Remember that death in the Dark Arena is now a Manager's Option.  You CAN have
     your warrior killed, if you really want to.  And, of course, it might just
     happen.  By what men call accident.

Kennelworth -- Oh definitely, I love his alliteration too.  Did he have a cheetah at 
some point?  Cherry Cheetah?  One of my favorite animals. -- Adie

G. Puerco -- Yes, very much so, as long as I can keep it up. -- Jeb

Yellow Streak -- Hey, "I" said 'you got punked', not Adie.  Get it straight.  Do you 
seriously think she would ever say anything so crass! -- Tankesh

Big Dog -- I'm not too thrilled you whupped my guy to hold onto the throne, but I'll 
give you kudos.  Now go get hammered at the Bulldog... Duelmaster. -- Tankesh

Big Dog -- Perhaps I was a bit too 'bold' in that challenge, or you a bit too much 
like a great dane, towering over me.  But that is the first fight in which I have 
learned nothing.  I'm sure I could've learned what I should do to parry such attacks 
or something similar.  Perhaps your style is so crude and crazy I was left confused. 
-- Kalidor

Lini -- Well $#!t, I was at least hoping to swing first and get a shot in before 
getting pummeled. -- Branford

Willie Dixon -- Tankesh said I had to put your ego down. -- Eliza

Jo Mooncatcher -- Well, yep, I knew I'da probably get whupped, but I was lookin fer a 
gud fight and somethin' to learn.  Thank'ya. -- Jeb

Lini -- Thank you my lady. -- Kalidor

Dirk Darkblade -- Only my second win, do you think I'm getting better? -- Fiona

Bootstrap -- <hissing... are those fangs?  Looking very pissed with narrowed eyes...> 
-- Lord Kronos

Ye Consortium Scribe -- Thank you for adding more substance for the newbies on PLs.  
Although I still had to go through and decipher a bit of what you had to say.  ;) -- 
Adie

PPE -- It was a typo.  Street Legal's SZ was really supposed to be 52.  You dork...
-- Tankesh

PPE -- You just keep talkin' yourself up because I seem to somehow do it despite 
always talking you down.  So in essence, I'm done talking to you.  Beyond your 
baseless, pointless, mindless bantering, you're so... annoying!  Stop it! -- Tankesh

Black Plague -- You moron, look at the dead list.  Orange Otter was one of Mino's, 
not one of Colorific's idiots!  She and they have nothing to do with the likes of 
you. -- Tankesh

Lini -- Well, if you'd let ME swing first, it might have been the other way around.  
You can come down from your high horse now. -- Branford

Jo -- Nuts?  I'm not nuts, I've just got balls and guts.  Don't you?  I look for good 
skills and a good fight, for none of mine will come easy. -- Jeb

Scribe -- Okay.  :P~ -- Tankesh

Rainsong -- Was that a new song you're singing after I was finished? -- Kalidor

Thunderblade -- It doesn't get much easier than that for me. -- Eliza

Honey -- I like fighting you... -- Branford

Bucking Brahma -- I shoulda turned up the juice there at the end.  Note to self... -- 
Jeb

Golden Aura -- Not so golden anymore, ha! -- Fiona

Django -- Well that weapon was substandard. -- Lord Kronos, bored

Big Dog -- Congratulations on your continued success!  You mentioned the formidable 
wastes of Aruak City, and you have put them to shame so far.  But there is still 
me... -- Montezuma Whifflebat, waiting for his chance

Wow, top team... I'm honored! -- Generalissimo Puerco

Van Helsing -- Surely you mistook me for an undead, as you attacked with such 
ferocity and vehemence.  Luckily, I am still not an undead.  You were too much for 
this bird. -- Almond Albatross

Oski Noble -- Well, thank you, sir.  Thank you. -- Turquoise Tiger (burp)

Door Knob --You smashed my spider web, you jerk! -- Aqua Arachnid

Convicted Thief -- Perhaps it is best to avoid me--especially when I am hungry. -- 
Pink Puma

Fiona Starmantle --Well, ouch!  And I thought double ouch when I saw that maniacal 
grin. -- Golden Aura, Proud Colorific

I have no problem running from the Userous Merchant and his collections.  I will take 
a victory any way I can get it. -- Yellow Streak, Proud Colorific

Louie C -- You proved me wrong and I admit it and I will shut up. -- Black Plague, 
Proud colorific

What a sight to see! -- One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying Purple People Eater, Proud 
Colorific Manager

Lini Dawnwind -- I really thought you were going to turn it there.  Great battle. 
Salute. -- Big Dog

Willie -- When will you ever learn?  This is not baseball, even though a hot dog and 
a bat is present.  But, hey, thanks for the thought. -- Hot Dog

Iron Magru -- Now don't that just make your hammer droop?  Leather can be quite 
tough, and sometimes iron is brittle.  Quite the surprise, I suspect! -- Calfskin

Jeb -- It is always good to know you are there when I really need a tuft. -- Bucking 
Brahma

Big Dog -- Now one drink only!  See you at The Bulldog Inn, champ. -- Kennelworth, 
Proprietor

The Singing Bandit -- Well, that was a bust!  I kept trying to sing along, and you 
kept changing the tune on me. -- Rockie Dee

Jeremiah Jay Cooke -- You short people are so pushy! -- Jo Mooncatcher

Stu Hamm -- Go ahead.  Laugh.  See if I care. -- Jon Fleet

Big Dog -- You really throw your weight around, don't you, boy? -- Lini Dawnwind

Rick Derringer -- Good advice. -- Windchaser

Bootstrap -- Noted.  I will refrain. -- Mooncatcher
