                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Aha!  Duel2Dudette and GRADUATING.  THIS is more like it.

                             Lady Protector Sonora Sara

P.S.  Morning star?  Euwh!  I'm definitely not a morning person.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in IAYE, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--THE WARLOCKS.  Like a new team fighting 
for the first time and entering the official rankings, JUST PLAIN BAD got 3-2-0 to 
come in 5th.  JUST PLAIN BAD had cause to celebrate, after WARM BUD got 20 points by 
beating TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE.  TELA certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, 
after losing to WANKER X and losing 11 points in the process!  KHALHUMS DWARF found 
out that IAYE isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So 
who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are IAYE's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in IAYE is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  IAYE, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Rat Nest.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Dark Star -- Dark is good, but it's best when it's chocolate. -- Lady Protector (love 
that!) Dark Chocolate
P.S.  If the mages are starting to make golem warlocks, I think we may be in serious 
trouble here.

Candyman -- "Reels with the fury of the combat, a prayer on his lips"?  Doesn't that 
interfere with your breathing? -- Freeda
P.S.  And since when were we importing Karnhorn warlocks?  I'd think that would be 
the LAST thing the King would want to do.

The Wind -- So, the truth comes out!  I have often thought that the wind, especially 
here on the edge of winter, was cold and heartless.  And now I see!  A golem! -- 
Gissanniah
P.S.  Would that I could defeat you as well in the field as in the arena, but that, 
alas, is not to be.

The River -- (panting)  You swept me off my feet! -- Willeta
P.S.  I nearly drowned, you know.  Be careful next time.

22 October 2004
                         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.
