                             Notes from the arena champ.

City of Malcorn,
     Well would ya look at this!  I never thought I would be up here, and Battery
down there, hehehe.  Well, without rubbing it in, let me get started.  I would like
to thank all my sponsors....  Mr. Blacksmith, I could wear my armor all day and never
notice it, and my mace always feels light and nimble, except when there are chunks of
flesh and bone on it, then it loses its aerodynamics.  I would also like to thank the
guys in the training hall who help me be the best basher I can be.  I'd like to thank
my manager Zeus for letting me fight how I like to fight, unlike my poor pal Battery
who was told to be a sitting duck!  HaHa.  Last and certainly not least, I thank all
of you who fought before me and lost to me.  This would not be possible if it weren't
for the little people.  Now who do I buy drinks for?  Aw heck, OPEN BAR ON ME, LET'S
PARTY! -- Your Duelmaster, Mortikhan
P.S.  I could get used to this!

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to MALCORN once again!  What's with XANE REAVER?  He actually beat 
STARBASE 5's FOREVER, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at STARBASE 5.  FOREVER lost 11 points to XANE REAVER.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe FOREVER will provide more easy wins...  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for GREENWARDENS' outstanding member, Duelmaster STALKING HORSE.  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being the most challenged warrior, BATTERY!  Don't make idle boasts, they 
may come back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

All -- Interesting, my only wins were a Fool I sent to the Dark arena, and a Fool
that I accidentally did not send to the Dark arena.  What is going on in Malcorn?

Mortikhan -- Okay, so wood isn't high-tech enough for you.  Try getting anything else
around here, eh? -- Wooden Arrow
P.S.  That's just the shaft, you know.  Steel points.

Lan -- You didn't need an undefeated record.  That kind of thing makes you a target,
you know. -- Stalking Horse, philanthropist

Charismatic -- But charisma isn't everything.  Good, but not everything. -- Mayflower

Mean Guy -- That isn't a distinguishing name.  So MANY people are mean.... -- Oakleaf
P.S.  Even I can be mean if driven to it.

Blackwind -- Or maybe, I dunno, a ring job? -- Greengrove

Hidnopskvir -- Ah.  All is now clear. -- Greengrove

Greengrove -- oh, um...I didn't mean to hit you below the belt.  Was that rude of me?
-- Blackwind
P.S.  If I were a clearwind, then you wouldn't see me coming.  Where is the challenge
in that?

Nightwyn -- You weren't suppose to be matched up with me like that.  Sorry for being
a slack-jawed scum (that couldn't scum). -- Battery

Dark Creation -- Well, I waited for one of your crew!  I stood there in heavy hot
armor, armed myself with my least favorite weapon, went against my will and just
stood there taking a beating!  I'm sure you tried to bloodfeud, and the council
members decided against it.  Next time try buying a round of drinks first.  I bought
them a round...or two, and I get an Invite!  Well, because I'm in good "spirits", I
will give you my last fight in this arena.  This time, if your challenge goes
through, I will fight you with my eyes closed, hands tied, and I will spit toothpicks
at you until one of us falls or one of us simply gets up and walks away.  Good luck.
-- Battery

Jorja -- You think it's all about political points and arena fights and skills!  I
think it's all about the ale!  Here's one to ya!  Bottoms up! -- Battery

Wooden Arrow -- Can I have my mace back please?  I think I left it in your forehead.

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I

Ladies and gents...get your teams together and join in on the hottest and fiercest
contest ever to grace the arena sands!  Intrigue, personal wars, you name it...we got
it going on!  What is this contest?  It's the Turf War IV in DM 47, North Fork!!
This fantastic contest was begun by my alliance mate Asmo Dius, and I've picked up
some of the slack.  Contest starts on Turn 225 (approx. date June 9th?).  It's an
"alliance-type contest", so grab your folks and bring them in for a bang up time.
Rules will be printed in the DM 47 newsletter at least until the contest starts. --

Contest Announcement
It's finally here!  ScumFest 2005!  The greatest scum in the land of Alastari are

Who:  All Scum in Alastari
What:  Scum Fest 2005!
Where:  Talahya
When:  May 23rd, Talahya Turns 490-499

The object of winning ScumFest is to have the longest cumulative time (in minutes) at
the end of the 10th round.

Should there be a tie at the end of 10 rounds, tiebreakers are (in order):
- Head to Head Record
- Win/Loss Percentage
- Average Fight Length
(We'll go into overtime if they're still tied)

There are no other rules.  A manager may use any means at his disposal in order to
accomplish his goal.  Collusion, hiring Aimed Blows to take out the leaders, etc.
Anything goes!

To enter the scum fest, please write a personal ad in the DM 100 newsletter,
declaring your intention to join the contest, or send an email to managerr@aol.com

Please include warrior name and ID numbers of the contestants.  You may enter the

Prizes will be announced after the competition begins.  The point of the contest is
to prove you have the scummiest scum, and necessarily for a silly prize.

Good luck and Happy Scumming!

-- Manager

                                SLAUGHTER'S CHALLENGE

     I would like to make a formal announcement to all the managers of Alastari that
the inaugural/memorial challenge put forth by Abarsis, The Slaughter Priest (Richard
Hammes) has been approved by the commission.  The contest will be held in TROCAR,
arena 54, beginning on the turn that starts around June 2nd.  Keep in mind that this
is a slow arena.  Before I go on, I would like to personally thank the commission for
procuring an outstanding top prize for this contest.  This announcement follows my
last and entry into the contest will be a minimum $5 donation, which I will pool and
give to a charity in the San Diego area in Richard Hammes' name and memory.  My
address is at the end.  Once the donation is made, I intend to notify RSI of the
charity and amount we donated as a matter of pride for them and us in this game!  I
will notify everyone in an all arena ad as well.
     The contest is pretty simple.  Any team may enter, there are no restrictions on
fight experience!  There are no challenges, avoids, bloodfeuds, or tourneys allowed
and only one single use of the Dark Arena is allowed after the contest begins.  To
help eliminate any interference, I am going to allow avoids of non-contest teams in
case they are there to manipulate and affect the winner of the contest.  Scoring is
as follows:

1 point for winning
1 point for killing (giving 2 in total, 1 for the win and 1 for the kill)
1 point for at least one of your warriors writing a personal (regardless of number of
     personals beyond one you still only get one point).  Make sure it is written
     from one of your team's warriors and not simply the manager entity or you will
     not get the point.
-1 point for losing
-1 point for being killed (giving -2 in total, -1 for losing and -1 for being killed)

     The contest will last for 12 turns, again beginning roughly June 2nd.  May I
point out that if you use your Dark Arena fight you will get either 2 points, for
winning, or -2, for losing, and ALL fights count in the scoring.  It matters not if
you fight a non-contest warrior or a stand-in; they still count as much as fighting a
contest warrior.  This will be a test of basic strategy with a touch of luck added in
as well.
     If anyone should break the no tourney rule they will lose 5 points for each
warrior entered and those warriors, and any subsequent warriors who replace them in
death, cannot score points!  Break the no DA, challenge, or avoid rules (except
avoids of non-contest teams) and you will be DQ'd as soon as the transgression is
discovered.  To keep the contest playing field as level as possible, we will have no
messing with these rules.  Of course you may DA the one time, just as a
clarification, but the second time gets you DQ'd.  This also counts if it is found
you bring a second team in for the purpose of making challenges.  You can bring a
second team, just don't think they can challenge to give you an advantage.  This
means DQ to your contest team.  A second team may also enter the contest with its own
donation of $5 and adherence to the rules.  Well, enough of that, I'm sure you'd like
to see the prizes so here they are:

1st place - +1 bonus to one warrior on the team, 1 resurrection potion, and 1
     favorite knowledge
2nd place - +1 bonus for one warrior, 1 favorites knowledge
3rd place- +1 bonus for one warrior
Iron Manager - Run 54 of the possible 60 fights and get a +1 bonus potion

     The resurrection potion may be used on any FE warrior, however the favorites and
+1 bonus potions must be used on a warrior with at least 5 FE.  These prizes also
must be used within 2 turns of the ending of the contest.  Even those rookie level
teams can figure out a way to use that resurrection potion if you think night fight
;), after the contest of course, so don't think this is only good for experienced
teams!  Check your rosters and unused RU's and see if you can't find a reason to come
and test your mettle!
     Again, entry fee is a minimum $5 donation, money order preferred method but if
that doesn't work for you we can figure alternate means.  If a hopeful entrant
happens to be incarcerated and the only real means of making the donation is an
account transfer, please make sure you let me know where the transfer came from and
which team it is for.  I prefer that this only be used as donation method by
incarcerated players unless otherwise discussed with me.  Please drop me an email, or
diplo my team in Tobir(14), letting me know you are sending a donation for entry and
the amount so I can be on the lookout for it in the mail.  Thanks to all who have
sent their sympathies regarding our game's loss of a kind and admirable soul and my
best wishes to all!
