Later days, GAMEHENDGE, since THE WARLOCKS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news. Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ROWDY RODDY win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly. Tsk, tsk, ROWDY RODDY beat STEINBACH and STEINBACH lost 19 points. You're breakin' my heart. SENATOR SEDALIA challenged IAYE's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne. And if variety is the spice of life, IAYE may be getting bland, as BERTHA stays top dog in the city. I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this? You want to know what's new, don't you, IAYE? Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys. What's the big D? GAMEHENDGE was the most avoided team? Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse... And it looks like LENPROS avoided them the most this turn. What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me. Hmph. DR. ROSENZWEIG was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster. Now was the DM insulted or feared? Heh, heh. Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, THE ROCK was challenged by MESSENGER BIRD, who was ranked 32 points below him. Well, ok, the upstart knave (where've I heard that before?) won this match and gained 37 points to boot! Ha ha ha, THE ROCK. Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals. I volunteer for IAYE's morgue. More variety. Ya gotta go sometime, and THE ROCK's time was this time. Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what? me pity?). The bigger they are, as they say. And what I say is that MESSENGER BIRD had better watch out for WRESTLMANIACS, seeing as THE ROCK felled it this turn. So, THE A'S -- LOSERS II, just going to let LARUSSA rot in peace are we? Bye bye Bloodfeud, hello gloating arrogant ADMIRAL ISO. We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later? What does the IAYE arena have in common with the inns? It's just as comfortable to sleep in either place. Ha ha ha ha! Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too. Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.

The nerve! -- Freeda Fratsfan Noble? As if! -- Perrojo I don't call it polite when a beggar comes out with a sword. I call it mugging. -- Rishteke Bertha -- Tough match for the DM crown, wouldn't you say? But with that record you deserve the title. Good luck. -- Lenpro Leeta -- Sure seems that way. Maybe we can get some of these other managers excited enough to generate a few personals? -- Lenpro 0-3? It has been a long time since the Lenpros were handled in that manner. Whew! Competition is tough! Iaye Forever! Health. Humility. Honor. -- Lenpro (feeling a big dose of that humility at the moment) Dark Star -- I have to admit that outcome seems more likely than the one of our last meeting. Salute. -- Admiral Iso Enchanted -- Well fought! You deserved that one. I will not be as surprised next time. And I will pray more. -- Pastor Pentane Freeda -- There was no doctor in THAT fight. Wow! Well done. -- Dr, Rosenzweig Don't count us out of the action, Lenpro. -- Senator Sedalia and Paratoms 28 March 2005 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 can be contacted at: Danny Warren #28341 P.O. Box 250 Draper, UT 84070 or: Heathen, mgr. Misnomers DM 47 28 March 2005 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. -- Baphomet, Host...Company of Brothers Alliance, Illuminati Confederation of Alliances 28 March 2005 Contest Announcement ==================== It's finally here! ScumFest 2005! The greatest scum in the land of Alastari are formally invited to participate in ScumFest 2005, a contest involving the scummiest scum in all of Alastari! Who: All Scum in Alastari What: Scum Fest 2005! Where: Talahya When: May 23rd, Talahya Turns 490-499 Rules ====== The object of winning ScumFest is to have the longest cumulative time (in minutes) at the end of the 10th round. Should there be a tie at the end of 10 rounds, tiebreakers are (in order): - Head to Head Record - Win/Loss Percentage - Average Fight Length (We'll go into overtime if they're still tied) There are no other rules. A manager may use any means at his disposal in order to accomplish his goal. Collusion, hiring Aimed Blows to take out the leaders, etc. Anything goes! To enter the scum fest, please write a personal ad in the DM 100 newsletter, declaring your intention to join the contest, or send an email to email@example.com Please include warrior name and ID numbers of the contestants. You may enter the competition up until Turn 494. Prizes will be announced after the competition begins. The point of the contest is to prove you have the scummiest scum, and necessarily for a silly prize. Good luck and Happy Scumming! -- Manager 6 April 2005 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!
