                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Stillgard, I think you may be worrying too much about death, it is so morbid.
     Let us look at some numbers.  For turn #457 12 teams participated.  Total wins
are 2443.  Total kills are 154.  Kills as a percentage of wins is 6.30372%.  Due to
the variation of the number of fights among the teams let's look at the teams with a
large number of kills.  six teams have ten or more kills.  Croc Files 113 w/ 12k is a
10.61946%, Black Samurai 223w/20 K is an 8.888888%, Equestors 428w/34 K is 7.94392%,
Force of nature 138w/10 K is 7.24637%, The Guild 512w/22 K = 4.29687% and The Taken
590w/29 K is 4.91525% or 2006w/127 K which is 6.331%.  The other six teams have
437w/27 K for 6.17848%.
     I also have a team in the Willaf arena.  The numbers there are 1174 wins and 69
kills for a 5.87734% of Kills vs Wins.  Only two teams have kills in excess of 10.
They are 314w/22 K is 7.0063% and 313w/10 K is a 3.19488%.
     It appears that there is not a lot of difference between the two arenas.
     Next I looked at the list of dead for turns 456 and 457.  There are 12 different
fighters.  Three had 10 or more fights, 8 of them either had losing or equal records
and 8 had 4 or less fights.
     I was able to find the fight sheets for 21 of my 34 kills.  My bashers scored 15
kills, Parry-Lunge have 3, Aimbed Blow has 1 and Lunger with 2.  Seventeen  of the
kills came in minute 1, one in minute 2 and 3 in minute 3.  As for opponents' armor--
3 had none, 11 were in either leather or padded, 4 were in ringmail and 3 were in
plate armor, 16 were wearing some type of helmet.
     How about weapons used?  Epee, shortsword, maul, warhhammer, long spear, mace,
great axe and scimitar.  The heavier weapons scored the most.
     Tactics have been mentioned.  A kill desire of 10 was used in 3 fights, a 7 was
used in 3 fights, a 6 was used in 12 fights and a 5 was used in 3 fights.
     How about accuracy or efficiency.  By this I mean the number of swings that
result in hits.  If all swings result in hits that would be 100% accuracy or
efficiency.  This result in damage accumulating I would assume, which result in
fighters quitting rather than fighting to the death.  So in 15 fights my fighter did
not miss, in 17 of the fights my fighters were not hit, in 12 fights it took 5 or
less hits to kill, the most hits needed was 9, the average was 5.
     One aspect of this I do not know is how many 21 who were killed had "very frail"
or "cannot take a lot" on their character sheets, I will not keep a character with
this statement.
     My conclusion is low skilled fighters, lightly armored, not a while lot of hit
points go up against a better skilled fighter who can use the heavier weapons
proficiently and can deal out some hurt and wham -- dog food.
     I also noticed that on the dead list 3 were from Force of Nature, 2 were from
the Guild 2 were from Team Arphinous.  That is 7 of the 12.  Send the marginal
fighters to the Dark Arena, that's what it's for.

     Well, what are you looking at, LAPUR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If this keeps up, VENUSIANS, you'll have 
to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 6 in the rankings?  FORCE OF NATURE 
turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-1 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, DEATH THREAT, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  
Middle of the road, TANKS A LOT!, middle of the road; you'll get no good words from 
me, until you get better, or worse.  Break a leg.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see MATSURI win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MATSURI 
beat MR. YUCK and MR. YUCK lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like 
LAPUR has some guts at least, COBRA the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged 
warrior.  MONTY challenged LAPUR's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, LAPUR may be getting bland, as COBRA stays top dog in 
the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  CROC FILES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
BLACK SAMURAI.  Ha ha ha ha!  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but 
GOLDIE has challenged up by 28 in an attempt against ENOSHIMA.  And The Warty Toad 
has banned ENOSHIMA from service until next turn for losing to GOLDIE and giving her 
30 points in the process!  Ha!  I guess I can give a little credit to BINDI of CROC 
FILES for challenging up by 23 to HOPE.  BINDI lost to get 33 points of recognition.  
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LAPUR's 
morgue.  More variety.  Whoa!  I'll even buy FREE FALL a drink tonight!  Anyone who 
can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good side!  It's about time 
MACRINUS got beat for picking on warriors like DOWN POUR.  Bravo, FORCE OF NATURE.  
See you at The Warty Toad.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through 
use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in LAPUR to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Jumping Spider -- We have a bet going in my stable that only you can settle...Astrial
thinks you were still star-crossed and so unable to defend yourself, but I say you
were overwhelmed by my incredible speed and ability.  What say you? -- Lyra

Ravage -- Tired of me yet? -- Mensa

Sugarplum -- Whew what a fight!  You have some nice moves, I really thought I had you
beat.  Until next time. -- Astrial

Macrinus -- I am sure you are a bit sore, but I didn't want any of your body to feel
left out...I am fair like that. -- Solar Flare

All -- Goodbye Team Arphinous.  Hello Tanks A Lot! -- J. Thunder

Lyra -- I know this is a little late but I expect a reward for those 4 learns.  Meet
me at the "Bent Gladius." -- Scorpus

Hope's End -- We have to stop meeting like this.  Maybe this is a strange mating
ritual? -- Lucius

Hope's End -- Kills as a percentage of my teams wins is only 7.94392%.  I would not

Sue -- It only takes one crit when someone is as lightly armored as you were. --
Scorpus

Vagan -- The last time I hit someone as many times as I hit you they wound up
shredding their life on the arena sands. -- Lucius

Whirlwind -- Ooof, us trees are susceptible to events like you. -- Tall Tree
P.S.  I was worried about that "eyes blaze" bit.  What if my leaves caught on fire?
Glad you blew it out.

Lyra -- You're too bright for me. -- Jumping Spider

Astrial -- Ah, that win was sweet! -- Sugarplum
P.S.  Especially since my teammates are doing so poorly today.

Zargas -- You'd BETTER not be laughing at me. -- Black Tiger

Astrial -- Some people take me that way. -- Jumping Spider, a real pussycat at heart

19 August 2003
     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
pests.
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
