                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't believe it.  I really don't believe it.  After three years of bad luck,
laziness, and futility it actually happened.  I got a parry rip out of Talcama.  And
that is number 10!  Woohoo!!!  All ten baby!  I guess it is only fitting that French
grunt earned the DM by beating one of Suave's guys.  He is one of the few other
managers who have managed to get all ten styles out.  And if I was to get ten out
myself I had to go through at least one of em.
     French Grunt is actually a hell of a rollup...not the kind you would want to
make a PR but still a hell of a rollup.  13-5-6-21-9-9-21  I am sure some of you out
there cringed that I made that a PR but some things you just have no choice on.  He
leaves with an Ad Master Rip, Master Parry and Defense, and AD Ex Attack and Init.
(Bah decise is for fools!)  Looking back at his brief Talcama career I actually ran
him on his near exact favorites in the beginning and he returned me a 4-9 record for
my efforts.  After that I took matters into my own hands and ran him on a strat that
suited him much better.  12-1 in his next 13 and he is off to the Isle.  I have to
thank Jolly for getting this guy out.  If he hadn't killed one of my numerous PRs
then this might not have even happened.  Gotta love those challenger champ to
initiate bloodfeuds!
     It is nice to finally get this damned PR monkey off my back. -- BWD
P.S.  The sad thing is that now I am gonna try and get two of each style out!  (Yes,
I do need professional help.)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TALCAMA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  With any luck, I can sneak into The 
Original Arthur's Last Stand and join NEXT GENERATION's celebration over their good 
record this turn.  2nd place, not bad.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see SMUNCH win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SMUNCH beat GROBRAUM 
and GROBRAUM lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, 
our Duelmaster ARENAMISTRESS FYLOR Dark Arena Challenged this turn.  The crowds were 
amazed this turn, as ARENAMISTRESS FYLOR killed the Duelmaster, FRENCH GRUNT, leaving 
BIG MEAN FISH in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, BRICKTOP 
from WASTELAND to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not 
happy.  The Original Arthur's Last Stand, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From TALCAMA's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  TALCAMA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
CENTER FOR OLDS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was SHEPHERDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  LE PAIN DLG was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have WILL THE 
BIKER in a challenge, going down 13 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought 
WILL THE BIKER showed great skill and promise when he subdued BOOKIE.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Whoa!  I'll even buy MONTPELIER a drink tonight!  
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on its good side!  Honor 
is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of TALCAMA.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

6 May 2004
                                     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!]
