                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah!  Once again I sit on top looking down on those I have fought, though it be
short lived as I take my leave this turn.  A proud achievement as I see a sweep of
the individual top honors.
     I say farewell to all and good luck to those that remain.  I have had some great
battles with many warriors still active here and some that are now gone.  I pass the
torch to my Team Chaos teammate Solstice.  Same as I received it from my former
teammate and three time Duelmaster, Aurora.  Perhaps the gods will see her fit to
attain DM and follow along my path. -- Flavius Valerius

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZUWAYZA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS is pushed out of top team by TEAM CHAOS, who came from 3rd with 
a 4-1-2 this turn.  JAGUAR WARRIORS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 3 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  The 
TEAM CHAOS guild has had a 4-1-2 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, BLACK BELT fought SERRA 
ACARAL and gained 13 points and contributed to THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' 3-2-0.  SERRA 
ACARAL has lost to BLACK BELT, falling 6 points, while helping make JAGUAR WARRIORS a 
3-2-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between BLACK ORC and our Duelmaster 
FLAVIUS VALERIUS, making a Dark Arena Challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and FLAVIUS VALERIUS remains ZUWAYZA's top warrior for 
another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Drunken Ox?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUWAYZA, what are you afraid of? 
And avoiding THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS more than any other team we find TEAM CHAOS.  
ZUWAYZA, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that EMYGDIA NILDA from TEAM CHAOS was ZUWAYZA's most challenged warrior 
this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  FLAVIUS VALERIUS 
was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in ZUWAYZA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Ooh Lucious -- How sweet it is to dance with you.  The way you sway your hips.  So
irresistible.  I'll be waiting for you on the throne.  Come and see me. -- Matarse
Fury

Dan Steppe -- The one with the biggest weapon doesn't always win the fight. -- Serra
Acaral

Black Belt -- Sorry, wrong weapon.  Next time I'll bring a much more deadly weapon.
-- Akasai Chin

Marco Titanius -- Try using your weapon next time. -- Elemi Triangle

Caramel -- Ooogh!  Ack!  (sounds of ripping and tearing)  My pages are all sticky,
it's as bad as chewing gum!  Why did you do this to me?  I'm never going to get it
cleaned up, and I'll have to reprint the whole issue.  (sounds of ripping and
clanking)  NO!  You got the gooey stuff on my PRESS, too!  The whole thing is going
to have to be cleaned with alcohol...red wine, I think, and it won't have to be the
BEST red wine, the gods be thanked, but still!  Ack!  Argh! -- Nifty Nickel the
sorely beset
P.S.  Good fight.

A Captured Orc?  The SAME Harny Mock, Captured Orc of earlier days?  We don't have a
NEW orc?  He's looking rather...shop-worn.  Battered and dispirited.  Well, the lack
of spirit is obvious enough, since he hasn't even tried to escape.  But still, we
need a new orc here! -- Hot Rod

Jack Hamma -- You must have offended a MUG to have ended up with that match.  But you
must have let your attention wander when lining up for your brains assignment.
Anyone paying attention with even half a wit during that brief fight would still have
learned more than one skill.  So you either weren't paying attention, or you didn't
have half a wit.  Sometimes life forces harsh decisions on us, and you face one now:
Issue challenges to get a better match. -- Flight Journal

If this Criminal was as Dangerous as everyone says, why does he always show up to
fight in the arena like a good little employee?  I think he's a fraud and I will so
report it in this week's issue. -- Times

Akasai Chin -- You have some slight potential, but not enough to defeat a battle-cat
such as myself! -- Black Belt

Our congratulations to Flavius Valerius. -- Jorja and the Magnificent Mags (and some
second-rate sheets, too)

Venenoso -- You are cutting in on my territory, and I don't like it.  Killing people
in public is the work for professionals. -- Rondol of Osksi, Convicted Assassin, Have
Blade Will Travel

Hot Rod -- (wearily)  You just HAD to run me down outside the arena, didn't you?  You
have no CLUE how much it costs to get these humble rags laundered, but I'm going to
send YOU the bill. -- Harny Mock, tired old Captured Orc of many years

Times -- Talk slightingly of me, will you?  Run articles on the pathetic nature of
"crime in our streets"?  You will regret this.  That is not a threat, by the way,
it's a promise. -- Marco the Blackhand, as Dangerous as they come

Flavius Valerius -- It has come to our attention that there has been no official
distribution of Graduation Presents for some time, since, in fact, the mysterious
disappearance of Wekhirjath, the official Distributor of Lands.  It is true that
there isn't much in the way of lands left to be distributed after twenty or more
years of greedy gladiators, but we have occasionally found other items of merit and
made them available.  Today, however, we have an actual piece of land, if you should
decide to take it up.  A small island just off the coast to the north of here--not
far north, maybe five miles, and only a thousand feet off the coast.  It is NOT,
contrary to the jokes the orderlies are making, a "wave-washed sandbar."  Small, yes,
but it rises at least ten feet above the mean water level and possibly higher, it has
a rocky core and a few modest trees, and could be quite a pleasant spot for a
vacation villa, so long as you don't occupy it during the winter.  You may apply to
the arena office for the title to this property any time between now and the end of
the month; otherwise it will be offered to the next graduate of this arena. --
Verjazed, Arena Steward

20 September 2007
Ok, ok, you can stop not-talking about TOGS VI already, it is coming, slowly but
surely, like a giant, over-fed, greased slug sliding down a gravely driveway.  We're
looking for new-comers, old-timers, in-betweeners, fence-sitters and Delarquans to
come on out and participate.  Just think, you could be the next Pinky & the Brain
pairing (a la Creepster & Manager), or maybe you'll be the team that crushes all in
its path on the way TO UTTER AND COMPLETE TOGS DOMINATION!!!!!!  [note:  insert
sinister cackle if it helps you complete the picture]

There will be a few minor changes, so let's recap the rules from top to bottom:

1.  Each TOGS team consists of two managers.  After the contest starts, there will be
no switching partners whatsoever, so choose your teammate wisely.  TOGS VI will last
for 13 turns, so pick a partner you can stand for 6 months or so.

2.  The TOGS entry fee is 2 team setups per manager.  This means 4 setups per TOGS
team.  This entry fee is required before the start of the tourney with no exceptions
being made.  This is to ensure that nobody gets screwed if a team or manager decides
to back out early.  To pay the entry fee either:
     a)  send $10 cash/check/money order/ or whatever to me personally at:
          Paul Jokelson
          115 Moss Ave. #201
          Oakland, CA 94611
     b)  get RSI to send me 2 team setup gift certificates.  Sorry, no credit cards
         and no old teams you have lying around will be accepted.

3. TOGS point system:

Fights: 

10 points for winning on your up-challenge against another TOGS warrior.
 7 points for winning on your even challenge of another TOGS warrior.
 7 points for winning on another TOGS warriors challenge.
 7 points for winning a random match-up against another TOGS warrior.
 4 points for winning on your down-challenge of another TOGS warrior.
 4 points for winning a random match-up against a non-TOGS warrior.

Changes this TOGS: 

** 10 points for any challenge by the DM, UP OR DOWN!!
** 4 points for winning a random match-up against your TOGS partner's warrior.
To state the obvious, there are 0 points if you challenge your partner.

** 4 points for winning a bloodfeud attempt against you by a non-TOGS warrior

You will not get any points if you challenge or get challenged by a non-TOGS team
(with the exception of the above-stated rule if you get bloodfeuded), so use your
avoids wisely if you think someone is out to get you.

Spots/Ads

5 points for every spotlight written by any team member.  1 per manager per turn.

The minimum length of a spotlight to receive points is 1/2 column in the newsletter
(that's 31 lines-each line 85 characters across) and we will be completely firm on
this.  In addition to the length criteria, spotlights will not be given points if
they are in any way plagiarized or if they are not Duelmasters or fantasy related.
We will be the sole judge of this.  If you're unsure if we will judge something to be
Duelmasters or fantasy related, then e-mail me before you write the spotlight and
ask.  We reserve the right to take points away from a spotlight after they are given
if we judge at later time that the spotlight has been plagiarized.

-5 points per manager per turn every time a manager does not at least write one
personal ad.

4.  TOGS VI will start in arena 60 shortly after the Winter Face-to-Face (turn due
Feb 21, Aradi turn 436) and as mentioned before will last for 13 turns.  There will
be multipliers in the later rounds, which means that all points accumulated by a team
on turns 10 and 11 will be multiplied by 1.5 and all points accumulated by each team
on turns 12 and 13 will be multiplied by 2.

5.  Soultaker and Nuln will be the sole arbiters of any dispute that may arise, with
props to Sentinel for doing the score-keeping as always.  Whine all you like, we will
be glad to provide comfortable chairs and the cheese of your choice.

And there be the rules.  If you look closely, you'll notice there were a few minor
changes and additions made from the TOGS V rules.  They are as follows:

-- The Snotman & Nuln rule:  Last TOGS Snotman and Nuln randomly matched up something
like 4-5 times, so we basically decided out of pity to now give a small amount of
points (4 in this case) for winning a random against a teammate, so that you're not
completely screwed by having 2 of your 10 warriors get 0 zero points automatically.

-- Scaling Down Points for the DM:  Previously a TOGS DM would get 10 points *in
addition* to whatever challenge points they got.  This was to keep the DM from being
penalized for being at the top and give people something to fight for.  However, it
was a bit too much of an award and we decided to scale it back and eliminate the
bonus, but give full upchallenge credit whenever the DM challenges.

-- Bloodfeuds from outside TOGS teams:  This incident came up last TOGS, and it was
felt that if a person killed a non-TOGS warrior in a random, they shouldn't have to
be potentially locked into 4 turns of getting 0 points.  So we've added an additional
rule which now gives 4 points if you win when bloodfeuded by a non-TOGS warrior, at
least giving you some way to get points if you're locked into a non-TOGS bloodfeud
instead of being basically removed from the contest for 4 turns.

And lastly...

-- Team Names:  This was not listed in the rules, but to make things more festive, at
the suggestion of Manager we have decided to have the added dimension of team names!
Yes, no more boring rankings with Team 4 edging out Team 7.  Just picture reading a
TOGS turn report now, with something along the lines of "Team Fiery Starfish
obliterated Team Superior TOGSlings," just as one example.

We hope to see you all there....
