                                 BACK FROM THE ABYSS

     A painful surge penetrated my eyes as I tried to open them.  The pounding in my
head thundered like a horse and carriage.  The last thing I could remember was a
nightmare of the spawn of evil itself taking me on joy ride; not a pleasant thought.
Indeed, I was wondering if I had dreamed the whole thing.  I didn't think flying
above a city was possible.  Never in my days had I experienced such perversion of
nature.  Whatever that thing was, I hoped I didn't run into again, even in a dream.
My eyes started adjusting to the dim moonlight in the room.  I was beginning to see
the outlines of objects that I hoped were furniture.  There didn't seem to be much in
the room other than the bed and a chest.  The person who owned this place must be
cheap, considering the quality and lack of furniture in the place.  A single drop of
water fell on my head from above.  It stung in my eyes a bit as I struggled up from
the bed.  I paused at the edge of the bed to clear my thoughts somewhat.  I felt like
I had been out for a week or longer.  The stiffness of my limbs and cracking of my
joints was testimony to this.
     I felt around my waist and noticed my sword belt was missing.  Someone had taken
my weapons--for what purpose I was unsure but I wasn't sticking around to find out.
Since I had come to this strange land, I had encountered nothing but trouble.  While
protecting my Lord Hermishino, who I had served for 15 years of my life, I had saved
him from multiple attackers from England in an ambush, but I had faltered in saving
his son in the fray.  For my incompetence, my entire family had been made to suffer
immensely as I made to watch.  After this I was jailed and left to rot.  When Lord
Hermishino thought he would taunt me outside the bars of my cage, he made the mistake
of getting too close.  I struck, reaching through the bars and grasping his neck,
which I twisted hard until I heard an audible pop.  His body made a loud thump as it
hit the floor.  I could hear arrows whistling towards me from the guards as I made my
peace with god and prepared to willingly embrace death.  It seemed as though fate had
a different course for me to take on this day and I was blinded by a piercing light
and felt my body come displaced.  I woke hours later in this strange land.
     I had seen a lot of strange things I didn't think were possible and the only
constant was that they kept getting stranger.  It took me a few days to cross the
desert to a town called Solven.  For some odd reason, I know not why, I could
understand this strange new speech.  When I came to Solven, I was turned over as a
slave since I had no origin that could be determined by the militia.  Ironic I guess,
since in my old life I was slave.  In a sense, I guess mistress fate has humor after
all.  If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all.
     It seemed I could lead a life of servitude or fight in these arena games.  Well,
since the whole apron thing and cleaning someone's toilet and being referred to as
Mr. Clean wasn't my thing, I looked to get sponsored in the games without much luck.
Most people frowned on setting slaves as gladiators, as they were thought of as
lacking the skill and will to fight.  My last two options were this Woelfe character
or Silver Stroke.  I had a week left to get someone to sponsor me or my name was
going to be Mr. Clean.  Which brought to my present state.
     I felt a painful stabbing in my stomach, which derived from not eating in days.
It took some effort to get my legs underneath me as I headed to the oak door.  I
grabbed the knob gently and slowly opened it, careful not too make any noise.  I
edged the door open enough to peek out.  I must have been on the second story as I
could see steps heading down with a faint candle glow coming from around the corner.
Voices could be discerned and the smells of chicken, fresh baked bread, and another
aromas hung in the air.  I went outside and slowly headed down the stairs, turning my
feet swiftly to avoid creaking on the steps.  It sounded like three voices coming
from the room.  I crouched down on the stairwell.  There were three people around the
table eating and discussing something.  One was a lady with flaming red hair and
brown eyes that seemed to have a fiery glaze to them.  Her skin had greenish scaly
look.  She had a remarkable beauty about her, despite her strange appearance.  She
wore a black cloak and it was hard to discern anything else about her, although her
back seemed disproportionally large even with the cloak.  Perhaps it was hiding
something--maybe a weapon?
     One man was a towering giant who wore a tunic that looked three times too small
for him.  Dark hair and sharp features--he had seen their kind before.  The man was
Mongol and by his girth probably a clan leader of some sort, as size was everything
to these brutal tribes.  He had muscles on him a lion would proud of.  He had a
bristling beard.  His plate was heaping over with food as he dug savagely at its
contents.  Then there was what looked to be a priest of some sort at the other end.
He was in brown robes and was of average size and build.  There was nothing really
noticable about him other than that he lacked hair.  He picked cautiously at his
food.  Then I saw a fourth man in the corner on the far side who was as big as the
Mongol.  He stood perfectly motionless, staring out the window but never moving.  I
couldn't even see his chest moving.  It was as though he was not breathing, or if he
was, it was very slightly.  He wore the strangest clothes of all.  They were black
shiny clothes of a design I had never seen before.  He had some sort of black things
covering his eyes; I couldn't even imagine how he could see.  They were discussing
something.  I would have to get closer to discover what.

     As he slammed his fist on the table, it splintered slightly, jarring everyone's
food.  "I say no on this new recruit.  Slaves were not meant to fight!  That is why
they are slaves." thundered the barbarian.
     The lady spoke sarcastically, "Once again, Atilla, you've shown why men
shouldn't wear tight tunics; they restrict the oxygen flow to the brain!"
     Atilla looked dumbfounded.  "Uh...what did you mean by that."
     The priest piped in, "I hate to say it, but the big dolt may have a point.
Slaves usually aren't too tenacious as fighters.  We will be the laughing stock of
all the schools.  No one has accepted slaves as gladiators in decades around this
city because of the poor showing of skill on their part."
     Atilla spoke gruffly, "Well, he can't do much worse than you.  If you keep
losing, Silver is bound to send you to the special fights at night I've been hearing
about."  As he said this, he gave the priest a hefty slap on the back that knocked
him out of his chair.  The priest fumbled back into his chair meekly, trying to make
it look dignified.  The red head poured the priest some more red wine.
     "Look at it this way, Alien.  You don't have to worry about fetching a priest if
that happens," the red haired lady giggled.
     "That is easy for you to say, Savage Dragon.  Silver likes you.  He seems to
have a place in his heart for cruel things such as yourself.  I don't see how I fit
     Atilla spoke heartily, "Hahhah, Silver, a heart, I know you've gone mad now.
Give me some that wine, wench."
     Savage Dragon's eyes flamed and as she opened her mouth an intense flame leaped
out.  The flame went past Atilla's face and caused him to fall back in his chair.
His eyes bulged and his arms flung wide.
     "You think you would have learned by now not to tick the firecracker off, you
big muscle head." Alien laughed.
     "Why did you do that, you fiery mouthed demon."  He pulled himself upright and
was smacking the fire out of his stubble.
     "Shut up, you dolt, before I singe the hair off your head!" Savage spoke
sharply.  This seems to shut the big man up as his eyes bulged and he rubbed his
head, making sure it was still there.  "Besides, if Silver Stroke wants this Samuria
Sam to fight with us, who are we to say otherwise.  After all, I'm not going to tell
Silver I don't wish to follow his orders, are you?"
     Atilla and cringed visibly at that thought.  They both nodded in approval.
     Just then a short, lithe man stepped from the shadows.  He had dark hair and
striking features and his hair was tied ceremoniously in a knot, "So this Silver
Stroke isn't a dream."
     They all stirred and looked a little shocked except for the one called Savage
Dragon.  She replied in calm voice, "Ah...you're up.  You rested well, I take it?
Come sit down and eat."
     The little man didn't ask twice as he sat down and ate ravenously, scarcely
taking time to breathe.  The room was quiet for the next several minutes.  Savage
Dragon produced a document and rolled it down to Sam's position, "You'll need this to
fight in the games.  Silver bought your freedom.  You're a free man now."
     Sam didn't even acknowledge the paper.  "So what do I have to do for this?  I
don't work for demons.  Your master is not of this place or any other I have seen.
He has strange powers that stink of evil to me."
     Savage chimed in, "Power doesn't make one evil.  How it is used makes one evil."
     "Then why did your master bring me here in such a condition?" piped Sam.
     "Would you have come willingly upon meeting him?"
     He sat motionless for a few seconds then spoke, "He still looks like a demon to
     The Alien said, "My dad used to say never judge a book by its cover."
     "Aye, there is truth in that." Sam replied.  "So what are his intentions?"
     Savage Dragon spoke.  "Simply that you fight for him in return for your freedom.
Silver knows you are a man of action and this is what your life should be.  You will
be paid a fair wage as well."
     "Well, I seem to have little bargaining power at the moment.  I will accept
these terms." Sam replied.
     Atilla laughed, "This puny man, how is he going to help.  Will he carry loin
cloths to the arena?"
     "No, I'm here to help your mother get to 5th Street with Kellumbo.  You know,
that guy who wears a dress and thinks he is a woman.  Maybe he is your mother and
your father, barbarian oaf!"
     Atilla growled, "Let's see if you can fight, little one, because I'm going to
rip you in half!"
     Sam replied, "Come on, you're only going to see this once, so pay attention."
     Atilla charged forward, arms outstretched, shouting a war cry.  He headed
towards Sam, engulfing him like a mountain of stone.  Then with a swift kick to the
knee the barbarian dropped.  A lighting fist to the throat and the barbarian hit the
floor, making choking noises while clutching his throat.  Sam sat back at the table,
wiping his mouth and his hands with little concern for the Atilla.  The barbarian
managed to crawl back to his seat from the floor.
     Just then the sun rose.  Savage dragon said, "Well, it looks like it is time for
the games.  We should be heading out soon."
     Sam put the document in his belt, stood up, and bowed to everyone.  "I have to
pick up some of my belongs from the tavern.  I'll meet you guys at the arena."
     Savage dragon said, "Here, take these."  She tossed him his sword belt with his
katana on it.  He grasped them gently and he put them on in one swift movement as he
headed for the door.
     The priest said, "Go with god, son."
     Sam looked at his katana as it flashed then said, "I think god is going sit this
one out."  He sheathed his blade and headed out.
     The alien looked at Atilla who was now sitting upright, gently massaging his
throat and said, "It is good day; no one died."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SOLVEN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon JUST CHILLIN 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 9th position in the wake of a 1-4-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week THE ZOO went 3-2-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 
4-1-0 record which THE REPUBLICANS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that 
such a record will draw challengers!  MS. MADNESS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested NEXT TIME and was awarded 29 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TERMINATOR put down NANCY 
PELOSI, causing her to lose 21 points of recognition in the process.  This time out 
RUMSFELD made his bid for the throne as he Bloodfeuded GEORGE BUSH in an all out 
contest of skill for possession of the title!  This time victory fell to the grasp of 
the usurper.  All hail RUMSFELD, Duelmaster of SOLVEN!  No confirmation, but my 
sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  SOLVEN, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is KELLUMBO'S KIDS, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it 
was that spent the better part of last week avoiding KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Indeed it was 
CONSPIRACY INC..  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  
THE LIZARD take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in SOLVEN.  I cannot but 
express pride for the fearlessness of DARRELL ISSA who cast caution to the winds and 
challenged KANGAROO KATE, a fighter 32 points higher.  Truth to tell, DARRELL ISSA 
did not come out of the fight a winner, but he managed to capture much attention, 
gaining 3 in recognition.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, 
it seems that CHUNG' FOW posted a challenge against the more highly recognized MAYBE 
LATER.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand CHUNG' FOW beat MAYBE LATER.  
Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Look no more for CHENEY in the arena or 
on the streets of SOLVEN.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one 
at 6-6-0.  IRON MONKEY must hold silent, for this week she was humbled in the arena 
by a successful Bloodfeud won by RUFUS of BIBLE BELTERS.  Hail RUFUS for thy victory! 
Walk proud, warriors of THE REPUBLICANS!  By striking down CHARLES RANGEL you have 
avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in SOLVEN.  Fate is a 
fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the 
victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Gideon -- Argh! -- Al Gore

Jehoram -- Womanizer!  Wife beater!  And any other derogative for you that I can't
think of right now. -- Al Gore

Skeemer -- Thanks for the skills.  A few more and I could take you.  Good luck on the
isle. -- Al Gore

Gangrel -- Thanks for the easy win. -- Al Gore

Three Strikes -- Not a good day to start a career.  A random matchup that get me some
excellent bloodfeuding. -- Al Gore

To the new teams -- Welcome to Solven. -- Al Gore

Turkey Joe -- Congrats on graduating.  It's a sad day for me.  At least Kate is still
here. -- Al Gore

The Democrats -- Make no mistake, you and Charles Rangel will pay for killing our
stablemate. -- The Republicans

Conspiracy, Inc. -- That goes for you too. -- The Republicans

Master Tazo -- I see you gave Silver a lot of grief for making a DC, meanwhile you're
over here making a down challenge yourself, oh and thanks for the win, made me all
warm and fuzzy going 4-1, the 1 being a DA fight. -- Assamithius

Al Gore or Al Franken -- You got the first one, but I'm going to have to wait for you
to become a little better before I fight you again, 7 points?, that's an 11 point DC
and I'm saving those for ol Kellumbo, "oh there's just one more thing...."

The Lizard -- Hey just think, it's only a 6 point DC now. -- Brujah

2nd -- Is it the right to bear arms, or arm bears?

     If it's the latter, the former had better be allowed too! -- Ed., who doesn't
     believe bear bells do any good at all

Mr. Taco -- I hardly call a 6 point rec. difference a grievous downchallenge.  When
we were right next to each other in the newsletter, and your fighter had more FE than
mine (i.e. 5+5= 10, 8+3= 11, I know you're not bright enough to do the math yourself.
:)  Then in same breath, you were whining that you posted a challenge 19+ points
below with your fighter that had at least 15+ fe against a fighter with 1 fight exp.
to his name.  I want whatever you are smoking because it is some good stuff!  If
you're going to talk the talk then walk the walk.  Hell, you even misspelled your
idol's name (Detective Klinger).  Seems like you're the nit-wit to me and that is
putting it politely.  Let me ask you this hypothetical question, if Detective Klinger
asks you to jump off a bridge, would you do it?  You must have a thing for guys in
dresses or something.  I dislike people who can't think for themselves and get lead
around like sheep.

Mr. Taco -- I would also like to point something out to you, since I know you have a
hard time trying to get someone to read the fights for you since you obviously lack
the ability to read.  In minute 4 of the Toad vs. Savage Dragon fight, I quote, "The
Toad is eagerly seeking the death blow!"  Hmmm...that sure sounds like a death intent
statement to me....  But of course you class this as a critical parry, lol.  You have
no honor and lack the ability to tell the truth, which is why you are Detective
Klinger's lackey.  Lol!  Next thing you know, you'll be wearing a dress too and using
your gargantuan vocabulary to insult everyone with the same phrase "you moron".
Oh...how original. -- Silver Stroke
P.S.  You will be given no quarter.

Detective Klinger -- See above. -- Silver Stroke

Detective Klinger -- Don't get your jock strap in a wad.  (Yes, I meant jock strap,
lol.)  I'm not trying to take your man.  I assure you the relationship between me and Woelfe is purely platonic.  So don't get the village people after me on 5th Street
where you hang out, lol. -- Silver Stroke
P.S.  If it talks like a duck and walks like a duck it must be a duck!  Klinger, come
clean; your soul demands it.  But wear the dress if you like it.  :)

White Wolf -- Welcome friend.  No one I would rather fight beside. -- Silver Stroke

K-Force -- Greetings as well. -- Silver

Easy Breeze -- Yes it was easy, too easy, in fact.  Vote for me. -- Terminator

2nd -- Unlucky match for you, my friend.  Hang in there. -- Savage Dragon

Woelfe -- See, no one wants to hear your incoherent childish babbling, not even the
spymasters.  :) -- Silver Stroke

Lai' -- That is for challenging me, so much take heed, I'm your superior.  Remember
it.  Fear me. -- Samuria Sam

     So, where the heck is Samuria? -- Ed., who keeps wanting to change that to

Chinese Conn. -- Justice will come swiftly for you, my cousins.  Be prepared!
(sharpening sword) -- Samuria Sam

Phoenix -- Caught me on my offensive strategy.  Let's see what happens when I change
it.  Muhamuha.... -- Atilla

All -- I love this arena.  This is my home away from home now.  And I know you all
love me so much.  I see the tears lumping up in your throats. -- Silver Stroke

Spymaster -- Get my spotlight in there.  I didn't get arthritis for nothin....  :)
This story sucked a little at the end, but hey, that is what you get when you write
them on the fly at 4 o'clock in the morning.  Must have been a bear to edit.  My
condolences.  :) -- Silver Stroke (the smart arse)

     Four in the morning, eh?  That explains a lot.  Actually, the problem has been
     that I've been out of town the last couple of turns and Temp. Ed. didn't have
     time to do your spot.  I'm working on it as soon as I finish these personals.
     Hopefully you'll see it in this turn. *crossed fingers* -- Ed.

Rumsfeld -- Thanks for the parting gift.  It was a joy each and every time I whupped
your butt. -- Skeemer

George Bush -- Foul, I cry!  Let's try that one more time, on my terms, and see how
it goes. -- Ilsa She Wolf

2nd Amendment -- Looks like your manager needs to amend you...if you know what I
mean. -- Snake Charmer

Jer Ber -- You won't be so lucky next time. -- Schwarzenegger

Silver Stroker -- I've run all five guys for quite a while in this arena.  What in
the world are you talking about?  You can't be *that* stupid, can you? -- DK

Chaos -- Hmmmm...this must be the calm before the storm, eh? -- DK

Shall Be -- Yup, shall be challenged. -- Detective Kellumbo

Mr. Freeze -- Don't worry, bub.  I am sure no one saw your guy lose to the NPC.  Now
you are in fine company with Judge...oh, I'm sorry, did you just puke? -- DK

Kellumbo -- Actually, "Schwarzenegger" had a winning record when fighting for us.
Not bad for the weakest fighting style in Basic DM.  Your "Schwarzenegger" has a
losing record. -- Judge

Schwarzenegger Reborn -- Apparently I knocked the accent out of you with my
longsword. -- GB

Master Wong -- Live and die by the sword I always say.  Jehoram learned the hard
way....  Let's hope your pet monkey doesn't have to as well.  <grin> -- Woelfe

Master Tazo -- Hmmmm, how do you manage the hypocrisy?  Not that I really need to
take Silver's side ('cause let's be honest--that's a BIG side to take), but you can
hardly call his challenge a down challenge when compared to the Lizard's recent
beating....  How many points was that by again?  <chuckles> -- Woelfe

Master Wong -- Oh, yeah...thanks for the new roll-up.  This should be entertaining...
-- Woelfe

All -- Could we leave my bum out of it?  Pleeeease?  <laughing> -- Woelfe

Iron Monkey -- I hope you're ready to RUMBLE!! -- Gideon

Kalamazoo -- Excellent fight!  Well, for you at least.  Well met. -- Gideon

Anthony Scalia -- To be quite honest, I don't know what all the fuss was with you in
this stable.  Lots of murmerings about not challenging you, avoiding you...you being
too lucky to lose.  I guess that ends the streak.  Hummph. -- Josiah

All -- That's it...one more person whacks me in the 'ed and Rufus is going postal! --

Nancy Pelosi -- Hmm, without my glasses, I read your name as "Saucy."  Is that a
hint? -- Turkey Joe

Flat Tax -- Flat or contoured, taxes always seem to win.  I hate that. -- Kangaroo

Gangrel -- It's all well and good for the CROWD to be derisive, THEY aren't down here
trying to survive with a pincushion in place of a kidney. -- Zooie

Gideon -- I knew I had an edge, because you're so forgetful.  Leaving your bible in
motel rooms and all. -- Kalamazoo

Gil Stayne -- X marks the spot. -- Arishtarte

Detective Kellumbo -- (bows) -- Turkey Joe

Cheney -- You're old and weak.  The Dark Arena awaits you. -- Al Gore

Turkey Joe -- Goodbye and thanks for the win and skills. -- Al Gore

Is there a single man in this arena that doesn't hit women! -- C.M.B.

Ann Coulter -- So nice to see you lose.  A little payback for that past
downchallenge. -- Al Gore

Lubia 'Mei' -- I hate SCUM.  And you are scum in more ways than one. -- Al Gore

                                     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
     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!]

                                 TEN TURNS OF HELL:
                        The KLK Capture The Flag Competition

In the spirit of the ongoing effort to make arena play what it used to be (FUN!!), I
am proud to announce the KLK Capture The Flag Competition.  The competition will be
held in Jhans (DM-36, which has, by the way, grown in size equal to Talcama already).
:)  We are announcing this contest early to allow managers time to prep.

     -- On turn 462 (due 8/4/04) the lowest ranked warrior on your team is given your
team's 'flag' (he is your initial flag defender).
     -- Starting on turn 463 (due 8/18/04) flags will be defended every turn and turn
463 is the turn scoring will begin.
     -- Fights involving flags are winners-take-all and a warrior can carry as many
flags as he can win.
     -- If a warrior holding a flag either A) goes inactive, B) loses to a stand-by
warrior or C) gets DA'd, he forfeits all flags he has and they are returned the their
original team's lowest ranked warrior.
     -- If you hold your own flag on an inactive warrior you receive NO POINTS that
     -- If a warrior graduates to AD holding flags starting on the next turn those
flags will be defended by the lowest ranked warrior on the team of the graduating
     -- Scoring as follows for each turn:
          2 pts -- possession of your own team flag
          1 pt -- possession any other flag
          1 pt -- for each win
          1 pt -- for each kill
          1 pt -- for each award you receive in the newsletter
     -- You may enter as many teams as you like (per RSI rules) but each team is its
own entry.
     -- Tie-Breaker goes to the team that had the most points from flags.
     -- If still tied the tie-breaker will be the team that had the most points from
kills.  (It's the Delarq way.)
     -- The contest lasts 10 turns and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd
(based on highest point totals)

Prizes: (what you've been waiting on)
1st -- 3 know favorites potions*
       DA warrior named after winning manager
2nd -- 2 know favorites potions*
3rd -- 1 know favorites potion*

* These are full favorite potions (weapon, rhythms and tactics) and can only be used
on warriors with at least 4 FE.

     How's that for paying out? (grin)  Even if you think that it's all about the TC,
these prizes should be enough to draw you in.  (You know who you are.)
     I hope to see friend and foe alike come to Jhans.  Legion, Froths, and all the
others...this is your personal invite.  Can you win?  Can you survive 10 turns of
Hell in Jhans?
     Note:  Special thanks to RSI for helping make this contest possible.  Thanks
