                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, there was no rematch with Cannon Fodder as he was apparently too busy with the
Brigade to show up at the arena.  Fodder's loss was the Plank Rider's gain.  Well,
actually, it was his loss also.  Thus I'm back on the throne here on the beautiful
island of Sunset.

In other news, there isn't much news.  It appears to be a bit of slow news week.
Welcome back to Lakota.  The Loons are acting loony as usual.  The newer teams
continue to progress.

I like Stik's creative little title.  Dream, MD. DM.  Catchy and clever, but I
suspect I'd have to explain it to the Loons.  No, I'll just stick with...

Dr. Dream, Duelmaster of Sunset

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in SUNSET since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  SUNSET 
watched with glee as NOMADIC TRIBE got knocked off top spot by SEA DOGS!  Up 'n down. 
Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, 
GRIM FANDANGO's 3rd moved them up to 3-2-0 place.  What's with MOE COWBELL?  He 
actually beat SUNSET's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at GRIM FANDANGO while they watched MORITURI clobber 
RAGS.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as 
he might, MATSUDA KAO wasn't good enough at persuading DR. DREAM to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on? 
I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  SUNSET thinks GRIM FANDANGO 
and their 393-351-13 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at NOMADIC TRIBE ain't reelin'!  GRIM 
FANDANGO's mad!  What do people see in MOMORO WA?  His 22-13-0?  KANO CLAN ain't 
talkin', but he's got 81 points.  BLACK TIGER expects the easy win by going 17 points 
down.  MOMORO WA will find this a hard lesson!  BLACK TIGER beat MOMORO WA.  NOMADIC 
TRIBE calls this fighting?  In my day...  I hate going to the effort of writing about 
the kind of fights that STAY GOLD gets in.  He fights people like TILT, 12 points 
below.  I thought STAY GOLD showed great skill and promise when he defeated TILT.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Fred -- Yes, Bullwinkle.  It is a proud name.  Perhaps not as pleasantly bland as "Fred", but dignified and honorable. -- Bullwinkle

Lagerkvist -- That was almost too easy. -- Bullwinkle

Kerouac -- Perhaps that whiskey you asked for will help you cut the pain.  Borodino's
memory deserves respect.  Since you don't seem to want to offer it, we will continue
to leave you bloody in his memory.  Perhaps you should go back out On the Road? --
Ziggy Wolfsbane

Vulge -- Two veterans should be able to teach each other more than that! -- Black
Tiger

Road Runner -- Nice to see Lakota return to the arena.  I must say I was pleased to
see you show up. -- Ursa Minor

Jack -- 'Outlasted by Jack, or disgusted by Jack'?  You decide. -- Balzac

Ziggy Wolfsbane -- Very impressive fighting.  I'm sure you're equally as adept at
finishing Monday's Sudoku, denouncing racism, and finding Waldo in an empty
gymnasium. -- Kerouac

Phillydog -- Coward. -- Pentagonal Pink

SUNSETlers -- Well, me and the Pinksters discussed it and decided none of our boys
are going to the Dark arena party.  We are a unified TEAM and that means we refuse to
sacrifice each other.  Our record be damned.  We are family. -- Captain Billy

Sherman -- I've got no insult that can top the fact that you are named "Sherman". --

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....
