                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha!  Gilbo Shortaxe and short everything else!  Eat cold steel, short and hairy!  
Gods, but I'd love to kill you!

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZORPUNT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for STONEFISH, who pummelled JOE 
POOLE, to pocket 11 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, STONEFISH was 
winsome, after beating JOE POOLE and seeing him lose 7 points.  TELLER FLETE 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by KUNG-FU MASTER of ZORPUNT.  Does 
ZORPUNT have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  ZORPUNT, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny 
Vir

them.  I like to destroy prime numbers.  And there you are.... -- Limpette

Captured Orc -- You aren't Dahlak Krag!  He's got a broken right upper fang, and you 
don't.  So who ARE you? -- Joe Poole the disconcerted

Stonefish -- (groaning)  I *knew* there was some reason I didn't like fish! -- Pine 
Leaf

Jessaro Dra, Late of Mordant -- Gosh, I didn't realize you were Aruaki.  The helm 
hides your cat-like ears.  But now that I know, well, it's no WONDER that you left 
Mordant!  I hear they're very anti-cat there. -- Trina Lark

                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE 
CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
