                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, OH WELL!  OH WELL!  OH WELL!  How did this happen?  I have a manager that
doesn't manage, my challenges never go through--the two a year that get made, the
post service is so slow that I often have to fight the next fight before I know the
results of the last, I have a sad record, I can't even be the top warrior for my
style--and yet here I am.  Just goes to prove every dog gets its day.  OH WELL!
Let's see how long this run will last.  No avoids--just bring it on.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in SOLVEN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with BELISSA HOUGH? 
She actually beat SOLVEN's CIVILIZED CRIMINAL, and walked away with 20 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at THE REPUBLICANS.  TRUMP lost 10 points to HOT TUB 
JOHNNY.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TRUMP will provide more easy wins...  
Apparently SOLVEN isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The 
Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  KELLUMBO'S KIDS' hatred of JUST 
CHILLIN surfaced again as TASHELL challenged SOLVEN's top dog.  TASHELL was reminded 
on the sands why OH WELL is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, JUST CHILLIN! 
In my day, no team with a 186-176-16 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS?  Keep challenging up 31 points, KIDNERGUARDIAN, and I won't have to 
write about you much longer.  UP always accepts those kind of challenges...  
KIDNERGUARDIAN found one way to advance:  challenging UP and losing, but getting 6 
points.  No brain, no pain.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of 
fights that NAFISAH gets in.  She fights people like DOLBY JOSSEL, 9 points below.  I 
thought NAFISAH showed great skill and promise when she defeated DOLBY JOSSEL.  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?  JOHN ROBERTS of THE REPUBLICANS didn't know when to quit.  
When you've got a 9-20-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Is it my imagination, 
or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
     a.  Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns.  However, the same warrior may not
         be used all four turns.  4 turns means 4 separate warriors.  A penalty of

         (this means a warrior with 0 FE).

         tourney reports are posted in the NL.
     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the
         same conditions as noted for TVs.

Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:
     a.  renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena;
     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!

In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Street Legal
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
