              Battle Royal 3 -- http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir/br3
The Battle Royale is a head to head free for all contest open to any Talcama manager
willing to subject themselves to some of the fiercest competition Alastari has ever
seen!

Previous Winners:
BR1 - Doc Steele (Transel)          BR2 - Manray

Short Rules:
No avoiding other contest teams (And this will be checked each turn).
Only Fights against contest warriors count.
Score = Wins + Kills - Losses
First team to 25 wins!

Full Rules:
Teams may not avoid any other team within the contest.  Managers may only enter a
single team in the contest.  Any manager with more than one team may not challenge
any other contest warrior with their non contest team(s).  If a manager decides to
switch teams, his score will start back at 0.  Input Errors will not cause the loss
of a point (but must be verified with RSI).

Scoring:
Scoring begins the turn your team declares participation.
Scoring continues through the turn your team withdraws.
Score is calculated by: Wins+Kills-Losses.
Only fights with other B.R. participants count towards your score, but they count
whether they are challenges or random match-ups.
First Manager to 25 points wins!
Prize is 6 months of free play for contest team.  In event of tie, B.R. continues
until one team that has reached 25 points is ahead of all other participants.

The attempt has been made to make these rules as complete and bulletproof as
possible, but Assurnasirbanipal will resolve any disputes as fairly as he is capable.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

It is back to the Continuum for me.  My gladitorial stats would best be described as
following:  11(1)-17-11-11-21(1)-3-13(1).  Skills:  6?-16?-20-27-17-16.  Faves:
VL/LO QS.

At one time, I was 5-4 in the arena, but since then have pulled 9 straight victories
not including a 6-3 outing in the Adepts tournament.  My reign on the throne ends
after 5 turns.

Because of the Battle Royale, my only available challenges would be Roid Rage, He
Hate Me, Neosphincter, and Vain Varicose.  I have no particular interest in being
dissected by an Aimed Blow and nobody knows if Vain Varicose will even be fighting.
He Hate Me would be an easy victory and would definitely get my challenge.  However,
Assur says that I'll enjoy a Dark Arena battle much more.  Since this will be my
final fight, I couldn't argue.

-- Queue

notes from Assur:
On the positive side, I don't have to decide whether or not to sandbag with Queue,
the commission giving him the early invite.  I must say I was surprised, but I can't
argue that Queue's abilities and performance haven't earned him an invite.

On the negative side, I lose the chance to match Hansel's 7 turn reign on the throne.
I guess I have to be satisfied with only 5 turns.

I had no clue what his faves were, for it seemed almost not to matter what strategy I
used with Queue.  So, in the Dark Arena, he'll test out these faves.  Maybe it'll
make a difference, maybe not.  Personally, I think the match up he gets will make a
much bigger difference than the strategy I choose.  A small part of me would actually
like to see Queue match with the Arenamistress.  Another part of me wants to see High
Elf exhaust himself quickly and then watch Queue's Quarterstaff bash down on its
head.

                                      SPY REPORT

QUEUE, on his way out of town, left the throne vacant as he offed an AVENGING
ZILTHORN.  JANDOLIN wanted no questions asked about who deserved to be on the top and
was heard many times goading his top competitors PROVIDENCE and ROID RAGE.
PROVIDENCE didn't show up to fight and the commission thoughtfully (or perhaps they
wanted this showcase fight to happen and fixed it?) recognized JANDOLIN's challenge
of ROID RAGE.  Whether it was his skill or words, JANDOLIN emerged victorious almost
before the fight had started.  It was so quick that many in the stands shouted for
ROID RAGE's blood to be spilled, yet the Arenamaster ended the fight before that
happened.

Hottest Warriors on the sands:
    HE HATE ME (8-2) - Killed HOFFA
    VASSAL (8-2) - Killed CRAZY CREEP
    ACK VERT (7-3) - Victory over SCOURGE
    NEOSPHINCTER (7-3) - Loss to DOC STEELE
    MUSCLE BUM (7-3) - Victory over ALPO
    ---BOOTER dropped off the list after losing this turn

Three teams went 4-1 this turn.  SRETSAMLEUD earned the team on the move award.
FEISTY POODLES earned the chartered career honors.  SHEPHERDS, however, didn't get
any awards, but shares in another tie--a four way tie for current top team at 9-6.

Most Challenged Warrior:    BAMBI of BEAST MASTERS
     INZO vanquished BAMBI in a 1 minute mismatched challenge fight

Most Avoided Team:          SRETSAMLEUD by WASTELAND

Three large bloodfeuds were posted.  The largest, as we heard, was unsuccessful.  The
other two were successful and CADEX CFM managed to avenge his with a kill.  The two
hottest warriors also killed their opponents, both ex-veterans (CRAZY CREEP and
HOFFA).  Two initiate fights also resulted in deaths, MARY killing DA MEAT 2 and JUST
HAD A BIG GULP continuing his undefeated streak by killing THE QUARTER MONT.  BIG
GULP now has 5 victories.  Right behind that streak is REIHE with 4 victories in as
many fights.

Total Parries and Slashers are the only styles to currently hold 50% records over the
last ten turns.  Aimed Blows blew their record with a miserable 1-8 showing and
dropping from 56% to 45% in a single turn.

PICKLE JUICE maintains the overall popularity award and THE GUARDIANS II maintain the
top career record for a team.  CONTEMPT lost in 5 minutes but was the warrior that
got the most cheers this turn.  On the other side, SON OF CAIN and BOOTER had nothing
but silence by the end of their 22 minute scumfest. -- Sherik

belt has tightened more than I'd anticipated; I'll be lucky to just to keep my other
teams up and running and field anything in the fall tourney as it is.  I still intend
to run here sometime in the future, the team is too good to sit forever.  Good luck

Battle Royal notes...Turn 1 saw plenty of action, with Goat and Malaquar seeing all 5
of their fights count towards the BR.  Hopefully the scoring program flaws don't
undermine the contest (I think they'll be fixed this turn).  Partially missing from
the report last turn were:  Zalgor Prigg manager White Storm, Stik managing Vicious
Delite, and Sylvester Frothingslosh managing Come On.  Ichabod Frothingslosh managed
to get the only kill against Malaquar.  Dreihdenflahg took a narrow early lead.

Battle Royal Participants -- For the most part, there is only a single rule in the
Battle Royal--NO AVOIDING.  Starting this turn, if you avoid a team that is clearly
in the BR, you will be disqualified from the prize, however, you may continue to
participate in the Battle Royal.  If it happens a second time, you will be warned.
If you avoid a team in the contest a third time, you will be removed from the contest
completely.  Obviously, if you avoid a team on the turn they declare, that is not
grounds for disqualification -- Assurnasirbanipal

     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
pests.
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.

Defenders of Aruak

Mail-In.  It's not too late for you to sign up.  I realize that many of you may be

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
