                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RIZTAB!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ARENA FELINES was unseated 
this week as TEAM GNASTY moved up from 6th ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-0 
record for the round.  There were bitter words at DREAMERS' guildhouse after a 0-5-0 
showing this week which dropped the stable into 16th.  Dark Arena anyone?  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
TEAM GNASTY went 4-1-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 
record which HELL-MART managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  A new guild, DRYNN'S PRETTIES, entered RIZTAB with a clash 
this turn, showing off a 4-1-1 record.  Indeed, a worthy addition to the city guilds. 
SLAPAHO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
HEZASH THE MOUTH and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, STANK SHANK put down FAST TRACK, causing him to lose 11 points of 
recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the 
challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster THE TICK himself.  Who here 
was not present for the title fight this week as PHANTAST boldly challenged THE TICK 
in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Although PHANTAST made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious THE TICK.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in RIZTAB these days is ARENA FELINES.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of HELL-MART are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  I 
cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of SOMNUS who cast caution to the winds 
and challenged RIFT, a fighter 32 points higher.  Truth to tell, SOMNUS did not come 
out of the fight a winner, but he managed to capture much attention, gaining 1 in 
recognition.  Give XXL STRETCH PANTS credit for its courage.  Did you note how it 
challenged BARRY despite the 27 point difference in their rankings?  3 points of 
newly earned recognition and a dose of my admiration is what XXL STRETCH PANTS must 
now weigh against the defeat which resulted.  I can not but mention with disdain the 
name of 97 ITEM EXPRESS who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 11 
points below in the rankings.  I thought 97 ITEM EXPRESS showed great skill and 
promise when it won victory over CHAINSAW VIGILANTE.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RIZTAB.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

messy fight. -- Badger

Krusk -- My new wrankle almost wrinkled us both into a brush with the cold-

time.  Restratagize'n and confab'n time? -- Twangy Tonya

                                     DEATH FEST

     The ferocious ghosts of former glories whispered across the wind swept sands of
DM 59; agonizing incessantly due to the diminutive demise of the Delarq arena known
as Illis.
     Tattered banners and forgotten memories wailed in the wind for a dynamic death
march to dawn once more upon the blood stained sands of the Delarq slow arena.
     The distant call crying for  a declaration of restoration amidst the ruin of the
all but forgotten Delarq arena carried to the far corners of Alastari; drawing the
Devious, the Diabolical, the Dangerous and the Down Challenging to cross blades and
wage warfare among an assemblage of new stables managed by the Known and Unknown;
willing to spill fresh blood, while carving their destiny during 15 Rounds of contest
driven combat to be known as the "Illis Incredibly Diabolical Delarq Death Fest".
     A lone cloaked figure huddled by lamplight in a remote outpost near the
crossroads of ElseWhere and ElseWhen; feverishly formulating the foundational

framework for the dawning of the Delarq Death Fest in DM 59, complete with
Gladiatorial Commission sanctioned prizes to promote the growing thirst for a Delarq
Slow Arena Death Festival.

     Delarq Death Fest Opening Round debuts the first turn immediately following the
Summer 2004 F2F Tourney and continues through the completion of 15 consecutive
rounds.
     Death Fest points are Won or Lost ONLY in the DM 59 Delarq Slow Arena [Tourneys
DO NOT Add or Subtract from the Death Fest Point Scoring System]:

Death Fest Scoring Format:
Win =3D +2 pts
Loss =3D -1 pt
Kill =3D +5 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Death =3D -3 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Dark Arena Kill =3D +10 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Dark Arena Death =3D -5 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Revenged Blood Feud =3D +5 pts [successful Revenged Blood Feud provides Death Fest
contestants the opportunity to cancel out 3 pts for Death and 1 pt for Loss; while
gaining +1 pt overall for the Revenged Blood Feud in addition to the +2 pts for Win]

    DEATH FEST PRIZES will be awarded to the Top Ten Death Fest Stables on the basis
of Total Points*** accumulated during the 15 rounds of competition as follows:

1.  Favorite Weapon Knowledge for 1 (one) warrior ranked Initiate or higher on the
Final Round to be revealed by RSI to each of the Top Ten Death Fest Stables
2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters and NPCs [yet to be determined according to how
many DA Monsters and NPCs are available in DM 59 for Renaming]
3.  The Top Five Death Fest Stables will receive New Team Rollup Certificates as
follows:  1st (10), 2nd (8), 3rd (6), 4th (4) and 5th (2)
4.  Renaming Illis Arena for 6 months plus Receiving 6 months Free Play courtesy of
RSI will be awarded to the manager of the 1st Place Death Fest Stable
5.  Discussions are underway regarding a possible Special Award granted to the Illis
Iron Stable qualifiers who compete in 67 of a possible 75 fights during the course of
the 15 consecutive rounds of the Death Fest [Key Factor is How Many (?) stables will
be competing in the Death Fest without drawing away participation by current managers
in the remaining slow arenas!]  Therefore, it is important for all managers entering
stables in DM 59 for the upcoming Death Fest to contact RSI as soon as possible
regarding their participation in this contest so that a Final Ruling on the proposed
Illis Iron Stable Award can be issued by RSI.

***TieBreaker is determined on the Final Round by the DM 59 Newsletter Recognition
Rankings.  The stable with the Highest Ranked Active Gladiator is granted the
decision.  [Example: Warrior A and Warrior B are both listed in the Recognition
Rankings with 87 pts; however, because Warrior A is listed in the Recognition
Rankings ahead of Warrior B, then Warrior A is granted the TieBreaker Decision for
His/Her stable!]

     Opening Round Team Spotlight Bonus [minimum 15 paragraphs!]  Each Delarq Death
Fest competitor who writes a Team Spotlight featuring their Stable (Name) and
Managerial Alias [Gladiatorial Names Optional] in regards to competing in the Delarq
Death Fest will receive 25 pts added to His/Her opening round score.
     Illis Iron Stable Bonus [in addition to the proposed award awaiting RSI
approval!]  Any manager whose stable competes in at least 67 of the possible 75
fights during the 15 rounds of Death Fest receives 25 points added to His/Her final
overall score [this allows each stable the cushion of missing one round of
competition; plus up to 3 additional fights due to waiting for replacement rollups
from Deaths suffered either in Tourneys or during the Death Fest contest in DM 59
over the course of 15 rounds of competition!]
