                             Notes from the arena champ.

Wow, here I am.  Talk about backing in to this position.  First I challenge the
Duelmaster but my challenge does not go through.  Lucky me, I get a random match
against the Duelmaster anyway.  I don't win--Anthony Scalia does, woe is me.  Of
course, Anthony has moved to a higher level, so his office is vacant.  Since the
Poison Clan decided to take a vacation that left only me to step in, so despite my
best efforts I am your new Duelmaster.  I have a request for some of you warriors--
try to move up some, will you!!!  I want some variety at the top, I can only deal
with so much of the Poison Clan, and we all know Detective Kellumbo's boys just don't
fight fair.  So I hope to see some new blood soon, if not now...Maybe Later.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in SOLVEN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Uncool, KISS ME.  I mean 0-0-0 
is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  
MVP award for ARISHTARTE?  THE ZOO's proud of her after beating TONY BLAIR and 
getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  NO HURRY's match with 
SCHWARZENEGGER cost him a loss of 10 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think MAYBE LATER should let LUCIAS CLAY be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Name Dropper -- You know, I've got a really bad feeling about this.  Authors are so
suggestible.... -- Ghost of Eldridge Phant
P.S.  Although I suppose I could have a medical discharge from the arena and not
actually die.  I wouldn't mind not actually dying.

Supply Side -- What secret admirer?  What if I don't want a secret admirer?  What if
I want him to DECLARE himself? -- Arishtarte
P.S.  If he has to keep his identity a secret, it really makes me wonder about...all
kinds of things.  Is he married?  An axe murderer?  A former assassin on the run from
his former comrades?  Some of the possibilities are scary.

Ohio '04 -- So what happened then and there? -- Kiwira, idly curious

Cepacol -- You're medievally chaotic?  I would never have guessed.  I took you for
some kind of cough syrup. -- Zooie

Kevin Kennedy -- Nothing personal, but I hate you. -- Zebroe
P.S.  Okay, maybe it is personal, but not VERY personal.

Leeta -- We had a thriving arena, and instead of using avoids and such, you simply
leave.  Now that the arena is dying, you come back.  I hope I am able to kill every
one of your pitiful warriors.  Better rev up that avoid engine again, because
Kellumbo is coming. -- DK

Tazo -- Running scared, or just running? -- DK

Judge -- Even in my silence, I still regard you as a weak, 2-3 on average manager.
Just thought you'd might like to know I still cared. -- DK

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I

Ladies and gents...get your teams together and join in on the hottest and fiercest
contest ever to grace the arena sands!  Intrigue, personal wars, you name it...we got
it going on!  What is this contest?  It's the Turf War IV in DM 47, North Fork!!
This fantastic contest was begun by my alliance mate Asmo Dius, and I've picked up
some of the slack.  Contest starts on Turn 225 (approx. date June 9th?).  It's an
"alliance-type contest", so grab your folks and bring them in for a bang up time.
Rules will be printed in the DM 47 newsletter at least until the contest starts. --

                                SLAUGHTER'S CHALLENGE

     I would like to make a formal announcement to all the managers of Alastari that
the inaugural/memorial challenge put forth by Abarsis, The Slaughter Priest (Richard
Hammes) has been approved by the commission.  The contest will be held in TROCAR,
arena 54, beginning on the turn that starts around June 2nd.  Keep in mind that this
is a slow arena.  Before I go on, I would like to personally thank the commission for
procuring an outstanding top prize for this contest.  This announcement follows my
last and entry into the contest will be a minimum $5 donation, which I will pool and
give to a charity in the San Diego area in Richard Hammes' name and memory.  My
address is at the end.  Once the donation is made, I intend to notify RSI of the
charity and amount we donated as a matter of pride for them and us in this game!  I
will notify everyone in an all arena ad as well.
     The contest is pretty simple.  Any team may enter, there are no restrictions on
fight experience!  There are no challenges, avoids, bloodfeuds, or tourneys allowed
and only one single use of the Dark Arena is allowed after the contest begins.  To
help eliminate any interference, I am going to allow avoids of non-contest teams in
case they are there to manipulate and affect the winner of the contest.  Scoring is
as follows:

1 point for winning
1 point for killing (giving 2 in total, 1 for the win and 1 for the kill)
1 point for at least one of your warriors writing a personal (regardless of number of
     personals beyond one you still only get one point).  Make sure it is written
     from one of your team's warriors and not simply the manager entity or you will
     not get the point.
-1 point for losing
-1 point for being killed (giving -2 in total, -1 for losing and -1 for being killed)

     The contest will last for 12 turns, again beginning roughly June 2nd.  May I
point out that if you use your Dark Arena fight you will get either 2 points, for
winning, or -2, for losing, and ALL fights count in the scoring.  It matters not if
you fight a non-contest warrior or a stand-in; they still count as much as fighting a
contest warrior.  This will be a test of basic strategy with a touch of luck added in
as well.
     If anyone should break the no tourney rule they will lose 5 points for each
warrior entered and those warriors, and any subsequent warriors who replace them in
death, cannot score points!  Break the no DA, challenge, or avoid rules (except
avoids of non-contest teams) and you will be DQ'd as soon as the transgression is
discovered.  To keep the contest playing field as level as possible, we will have no
messing with these rules.  Of course you may DA the one time, just as a
clarification, but the second time gets you DQ'd.  This also counts if it is found
you bring a second team in for the purpose of making challenges.  You can bring a
second team, just don't think they can challenge to give you an advantage.  This
means DQ to your contest team.  A second team may also enter the contest with its own
donation of $5 and adherence to the rules.  Well, enough of that, I'm sure you'd like
to see the prizes so here they are:

1st place - +1 bonus to one warrior on the team, 1 resurrection potion, and 1
     favorite knowledge
2nd place - +1 bonus for one warrior, 1 favorites knowledge
3rd place- +1 bonus for one warrior
Iron Manager - Run 54 of the possible 60 fights and get a +1 bonus potion

     The resurrection potion may be used on any FE warrior, however the favorites and
+1 bonus potions must be used on a warrior with at least 5 FE.  These prizes also
must be used within 2 turns of the ending of the contest.  Even those rookie level
teams can figure out a way to use that resurrection potion if you think night fight
;), after the contest of course, so don't think this is only good for experienced
teams!  Check your rosters and unused RU's and see if you can't find a reason to come
and test your mettle!
     Again, entry fee is a minimum $5 donation, money order preferred method but if
that doesn't work for you we can figure alternate means.  If a hopeful entrant
happens to be incarcerated and the only real means of making the donation is an
account transfer, please make sure you let me know where the transfer came from and
which team it is for.  I prefer that this only be used as donation method by
incarcerated players unless otherwise discussed with me.  Please drop me an email, or
diplo my team in Tobir(14), letting me know you are sending a donation for entry and
the amount so I can be on the lookout for it in the mail.  Thanks to all who have
sent their sympathies regarding our game's loss of a kind and admirable soul and my
best wishes to all!
