                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Apparently, Phat Phat actually had the audacity to tell Assur that Peon
Necromancer could beat me (well, close enough).  Well, who am I to not give Peon
every single opportunity possible to prove it!  Well, that is an easy three turns to
sit here on the throne.  Maybe I'll show Jandolin a thing or two when that is
finished.  Do what Bo Peep can't, I think.  Bo Peep is better than me where?  Oh,
that's right--nowhere!
     Apparently, I have a chance to tie Assur's longest reign here in Talcama.  That
was a long time, ago, though, and the modern day of DM is a different beast.  Surely
I can't match the seven turn reign by the might Hansel, can I?
     I even promise not to use my Consortium Powers in the arena.  I would bother,
anyway.  What fun would that be?

-- Queue

notes from Assur:

I'm thoroughly enjoying Talcama right now and the Battle Royal isn't even going on
yet.  And I've got two real losers and have to find four new recruits, too.

I even promised myself not to make any more Next Generation Bashers, and then the
RUGs send me a basher.  I can't win, but I'm not complaining.

Finally, a personal note to Big Wave Dave.  Don't avoid any of my warriors with any
of your rippers!  Especially once they get into the champion class.  This time, I
won't just be trying to prevent myself from killing them.  I want to see you succeed!
-- Assur

                                      SPY REPORT

In a rematch from last turn, QUEUE again Bloodfeuded from the throne and PEON
NECROMANCER once again felt the pain of being scummed by the Duelmaster.  As a
consolation, PEON was the most popular warrior for the turn.

Hottest Warriors on the sands:
    MIMIC BLENNY (8-2) -- Killed Arenamistress Fylor (and goes out on top)
    NEON DISCODANCER (8-2) -- Killed KETUMAIE
    PEON NECROMANCER (7-3) -- Lost to QUEUE
    PEOPLE'S ELBOW (7-3) -- Beat ACK VERT (knocking him off the list)
    BOOTER (7-3) -- Beat Venemous Concubine
    YANG CHOW (7-3) -- Loss to LILITH

Best Team Performances this turn:
    WASTELAND (5-0)
    SRETSAMLEUD (4-1)

Up challengers:   2-5   Warriors increasing recognition class: 13
Down challengers: 5-0   Warriors decreasing recognition class: 2

Largest Recognition Gains:  NEON DISCODANCER (+31) - killed KETUMAIE
                            SON OF CAIN (+19) - beat SPAM GOLEM

Largest Recognition Losses: ACK VERT (-26) - loss to PEOPLE'S ELBOW

Most Challenged Warrior:    DOC STEELE
     DOC STEELE savagely defeated VETERAN MERCENARY in 2 gory minutes

Most Avoided Team:          THE SHADOWS by SRETSAMLEUD

It was a turn of challenge mismatches, with very few fights being in doubt much past
the posting of the accepted challenges.  Upsets were not the news of the day.

Total parries, led by QUEUE on the throne, retook the 10 turn record lead from the
Wall of Steel styles.  Total Parries went an impressive 12-3, with the most warriors
and the best record.  Wall of Steels, meanwhile, went 1-6 to fall 4 spots in the
rankings and barely maintaining a 50% record.

Two teams fought for the first time in Talcama.  UNDERCOVER SKA entered 5 warriors
and went 2-3 and PATRONAS VERITAS I fought 2 saw two warriors on the sand for their
debut and went 1-1.  Also, 2 teams rejoined Talcama, ALCHEMY and WAY OF THE BLADE.

There were three deaths on the sands of note, and all three involved challenge
matches.  NEON DISCODANCER challenged and killed KETUMAIE, bringing back memories of
PENTARCHIE-18's terrible streak in trying to keep warriors alive.  A sad day indeed
for this stable and this loss is certainly the worst to date.  RON STOPPABLE also
died, but it was his attempt at glory when he challenged the infamous BROKE STROKER.
The final death was in the Dark Arena, but not just the death of a creature, but the
death of the formidable ARENAMISTRESS FYLOR at the hands of Lord Protector MIMIC
BLENNY.  BO PEEP also graduates, winning her final fight here in Talcama.

Hopefully, my life returns to what passes as normal and I can get back to my manager
spotlights next turn.  Who wants to be picked on next?!?!  Till next time. -- Sherik

All -- Formal announcement:  the LBA has opened their doors for the first time in 10
years and admitted Assurnasirblahblahblah....  As such, he is responsible for taking
abuse for all irresponsible challenges and garbage that I and TUM (should he ever
return to Talcama) instigate.  Mordraith, please abuse the new patsy of our
association for my ridiculous (and continued) downchallenges.  That is all. -- Suave

Assur -- Welcome to the illustrious ranks of the LBA.  Please leave your pride and
dignity at the door. -- Suave

Ghaelie Sidhe -- This is no fun, being at the bottom of the Adepts.  Why, there's
only one guy I can safely downchallenge!  Guess I'll be going after Bart.  Isn't he
supposed to be in our new cub scout troop or something? -- Gout Gout

Vazzzzzzzzzzzzzzal -- How ya like me now?  You training skills too?  Not a one.
Yucko. -- Ho Hum Ho

Fellow Andorian at Heart?  Fellow to whom?  At the very least, you should sign your
name to your ad.  Makes you look less respectable than me, and that's quite a feat.
-- Suave

The Round Robin Club has a new member--welcome to Assurnasirbanipal, third manager to
successfully graduate one warrior from all ten styles.  Jolly, shall you and I raise
a toast? -- Suave

Mordraith -- And so it begins, and so it continues, and so I'll use more avoids.
Won't be the first or last time. -- Suave

Goat -- Send me a diplo with your number so I can send direct.  Solomon retired in
the sandbox. -- Phat Phat

Queue -- I hope we can try that again. -- Peon

Tripwire -- Welcome to Talcama.  What team are you running? -- Doc Steele

Guardian -- Come now, my friend, don't get sulky.  You know you are one of the very
best managers in the game.  I keep laughing in your face because you keep choosing
arenas where I am completely secure like Gateway and Talcama.  It's not your game
that is lacking, it is your choice in targets when it comes to talking smack.
Remember the last time you said you were the man in an arena?  It was Gateway, and
you got your ass handed to you.  This is Talcama.  For one thing I run every single
prize I use on a basic warrior through this arena.  So before you are forced to
complain in a few months how Stanley Cup is not in Talcama, and you are lucky Doc,
and blah blah; just let it drop now.  There are not enough variables in basic between
2 good managers for any significant beatings to occur.  The only place you will ever
redeem the 81-28 beating I gave you in Gateway; is Gateway.  In Talcama, you are just
flapping your lips in the breeze.  You want to show me something, win the Battle
Royal II.  That would be a good blow for you to land.  Come to my house and win a
contest!?  That would make me squirm a bit.  Good luck. -- Doc Steele

Bart -- And how about some more skills? -- Scourge

The Battle Royal is coming back!  Anyone who wants to join should say so in the
Personal Ads in advance.  While the scoring will be live, Sherik isn't going to add
teams live.  So who's in?  My Shepherds, will, of course, be participating! --
Assurnasirbanipal

Jandolin -- Yep, I'm pathetic.  Unfortunately, my warriors suck and so do I.  I try
my best, but you see the results (a 43% career win loss record).  Maybe I'll do
better this turn, but I doubt it.  Hey, at least I'm helping you out with lots of
skills and wins! -- Assur

A pretty amusing ad by some Andorian pansy last turn.  Is slavery really banned in
Andoria?  Wow, they're really backwards there!  I'd actually have to agree with the
ad, though.  Everyone should rush to join in as many Andorian arenas as they can.  If
they're limited by their own code of honor, it should be a piece of cake to dominate
any pansy Andorian arena!  I can't wait to watch the bloodbath in Aruak City! --
Assur

Thanks to the fine powers of Queue, The Crusher is back in action! -- Assur

Scourge -- Keep those skills coming!  For that kind of training, I'll take losses
every time! -- Bart

Mayor McCheese -- Great fight!  Thanks! -- Forged in L.A.

Marduk -- Simple mathematics.  You're 10-1 against the rest of the arena and 0-3
against me.  Maybe you should avoid me and fight the rest of the arena. -- Paul

Doc Steele -- Thank you, once again for the help. -- Goat

Hope to see you in the next Royale. -- Adar

Andorian Andrea -- I would feed your weak heart to my dogs but they in turn would
turn on me for trying to nourish them with meat that would make them sick with the
worry about the next rabbit that might jump them on their next hunt.  So whiner, what
arena are you from?  I would gladly send a team to any Andorian arena that you have a
stable in to kick your gutless ideals out of your weak minded culture.  Which has
been the downfall of all warrior tribes of the past.  Only the strong and smart
survive, Andrea.  Have a drink on me.  Love, Peace and Herb Tea. -- Goat

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.

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 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!

1 August 2003
     Assurnasirbanipal invites you to Talcama to participate in the third BATTLE
ROYAL contest.  It is a Delarquan contest so brutal that even some of Talcama's most
notable managers will refuse to participate.  The rules are simpler than any other
contest:  You may not avoid any other contest team.  There are no silly rules for who
can and can't compete.  Any team in Talcama is eligible to compete.  The scoring is
also quite simple (+1 for a win, +1 for a kill (+1 for the win), -1 for a loss) and
the first team to reach 25 points is the winner.
     Scoring will be live--the results for the turn posted in the newsletter.  The
winner will be able to fight their contest team in Talcama for free for 6 months but
more importantly will win a contest against some of the best managers who play the
game in one of the hardest contests in the game.
     First turn for BATTLE ROYAL 3 is Talcama Turn 465, which is due August 30.
