                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yrr, uh, yeah, urr, it's good to be the king [snicker, snicker, snicker].  Lots
a good times there fightin with the blows 'n' bombs 'n' lunges 'n' stuff [immediately
an advisor pulls him aside, whispers in his ear, and then disappears.  The Boy King
assumes the appropriate stance of statesmanship, looks straight at the cue card, and
resumes....] I'd like to, umm, thank the service of, umm, Sleeps All Day for his
patriotism to Iaye.  Without your example Sleeps All Day [snicker, snicker] the good
citizens of our city wouldn't know the benefits of, umm [sniggle, guffaw] ya know,
[The Boy King turns away then breaks down laughing]  Ahh-Ha! You're able to sleep all
day?  Lucky you!  They gave me an uh, uhh, uhhh, ultomatoum that I've got to stay
awake at least half the day, otherwise the uh, ya know, Bitter Queen will take my
place and, uh, [gasp!], [Lightning strikes, thunder rolls, and a black cloud moves
quickly in from the horizon.  The Bitter Queen prepares to enter....]

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail IAYE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
THE WARLOCKS, whose 0-3-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 7th.  LENPROS stable has 
parlayed this turn's 3-0-0 into a 4 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The RED DOG GANG guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, LADY WOOF fought OUT OF TIME and gained 14 points and 
contributed to RED DOG GANG's 4-1-0.  JACK STRAW has lost to MOPT, falling 8 points, 
while helping make THE WARLOCKS a 0-3-0 turn.  DON FRANCIS challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone WORLDLY DECLINE's warrior.  We 
should ask DON FRANCIS about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster 
does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Rat Nest?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  GAMEHENDGE has cause to stand tall, as they were IAYE's most 
avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding GAMEHENDGE 
more than any other team we find RANDOM.  IAYE, are we going to accept, or respect 
this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that DR TRINAIRE from RED DOG 
GANG was IAYE's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a fit of brilliance or of 
stupidity (hard to say sometimes), MAPT challenged DR TRINAIRE today, facing a 31 
difference in recognition.  Even though MAPT lost the fight, he at least came away 
with a gain of 72 points for challenging on of RED DOG GANG.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Kudos go out to OZZIE CANSECO this turn, for revenging THE A'S -- 
LOSERS II's bloodfeud against WORLDLY DECLINE's warrior CELL BLABBER.  Well done.  Is 
it really true that IAYE has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought 
I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in IAYE and I've a long road ahead of me.  
Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

The Boy King -- This is becoming way too repetitive!  Perhaps we should fight? -- Don
Francis

Ozzie Canseco -- You've improved in your old age.  Now you can hit! -- Brother J.J.

World Chumps -- (Highly indicative, I might add.)  I couldn't take you out?  I
definitely deserve to miss the playoffs. -- Major Kohler

Thought Policeman -- Well, SOMEONE had to win on this team!  Thanks for being there.
-- Prince Polioles

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Iaye Forever. -- Lenpro

Mapt -- If you rearranged the letters in your name, you could be Ampt, you know.  Or
Patm.  It might make a change, and it would be harder for your manager to track you
down and send you out to fight against someone, such as myself, who is so totally
superior to you.  (pause to check census form)  Hmm, I THOUGHT that was odd, I have a
very low ego, suitable for one of my nature, so where did I get the "superior"
business?  The gods know a glance at my record should disprove that!  I must be
channeling some dead godling warrior.  Yes, that's it.  It's the season, and some
dead Red Dog with an attitude....  Yes, it must be Bill the Boxer, dead with a
winning record and three ratings, HE had an attitude.  He was a basher, after all.
Well, Mapt, I think you're fine as you stand, but Bill the Boxer wants you to change
your name. -- Fence Post

Ispep -- I considered staying to give you a hand out of the arena, but then I

thought, no, he's a gladiator and probably Egyptian as well, he can get to the
Infirmary on his own.  Or with the help of the orderlies, of course.  I'm really glad
you didn't win that one; I would have been so embarrassed. -- Dr Trinaire

Jack Straw -- They kept telling me you are a straw man, and I keep finding out you
aren't.  Ouch. -- Irish Cream
P.S.  Don't you DARE try to get me into a bathtub!
P.P.S.  And don't make those horrible noises at the bottom of the glass.  It sounds
like a cow dying.
P.P.P.S.  Or Worse.

Out of Time -- Well, try wind sprints or something.  In fact, we should both probably
do wind sprints together, since we were both staggering.  Glad I stayed on my feet a
little longer. -- Windsong

Baines -- (glowering from a corner)  The off-hand rolled-up newspaper was low, really
low. -- Lady Woof

Lenpro -- I'll try to remember to hand it over to a lightning pigeon, but if you
don't see it in a week or so, blame it on hunting hawks and ask again. -- Jorja

Golem Protector Earthquake Excuse -- There's been a lot of debate in arena circles as
to whether golems, especially the genderless ones, count as "real people" who should
get "lands" (meaning any kind of graduation presentation beyond the certificate and
the ticket to the Isle).  Until this point is resolved, I can take no action here.
But know that I do most sincerely salute you and wish you well on your journey and in
your future career. -- Arenamaster Penrue

20 September 2007
Ok, ok, you can stop not-talking about TOGS VI already, it is coming, slowly but
surely, like a giant, over-fed, greased slug sliding down a gravely driveway.  We're
looking for new-comers, old-timers, in-betweeners, fence-sitters and Delarquans to
come on out and participate.  Just think, you could be the next Pinky & the Brain
pairing (a la Creepster & Manager), or maybe you'll be the team that crushes all in
its path on the way TO UTTER AND COMPLETE TOGS DOMINATION!!!!!!  [note:  insert
sinister cackle if it helps you complete the picture]

There will be a few minor changes, so let's recap the rules from top to bottom:

1.  Each TOGS team consists of two managers.  After the contest starts, there will be
no switching partners whatsoever, so choose your teammate wisely.  TOGS VI will last
for 13 turns, so pick a partner you can stand for 6 months or so.

2.  The TOGS entry fee is 2 team setups per manager.  This means 4 setups per TOGS
team.  This entry fee is required before the start of the tourney with no exceptions
being made.  This is to ensure that nobody gets screwed if a team or manager decides
to back out early.  To pay the entry fee either:
     a)  send $10 cash/check/money order/ or whatever to me personally at:
          Paul Jokelson
          115 Moss Ave. #201
          Oakland, CA 94611
     b)  get RSI to send me 2 team setup gift certificates.  Sorry, no credit cards
         and no old teams you have lying around will be accepted.

3. TOGS point system:

Fights:

10 points for winning on your up-challenge against another TOGS warrior.
 7 points for winning on your even challenge of another TOGS warrior.
 7 points for winning on another TOGS warriors challenge.

 7 points for winning a random match-up against another TOGS warrior.
 4 points for winning on your down-challenge of another TOGS warrior.
 4 points for winning a random match-up against a non-TOGS warrior.

Changes this TOGS:

** 10 points for any challenge by the DM, UP OR DOWN!!
** 4 points for winning a random match-up against your TOGS partner's warrior.
To state the obvious, there are 0 points if you challenge your partner.

** 4 points for winning a bloodfeud attempt against you by a non-TOGS warrior

You will not get any points if you challenge or get challenged by a non-TOGS team
(with the exception of the above-stated rule if you get bloodfeuded), so use your
avoids wisely if you think someone is out to get you.

Spots/Ads

5 points for every spotlight written by any team member.  1 per manager per turn.

The minimum length of a spotlight to receive points is 1/2 column in the newsletter
(that's 31 lines-each line 85 characters across) and we will be completely firm on
this.  In addition to the length criteria, spotlights will not be given points if
they are in any way plagiarized or if they are not Duelmasters or fantasy related.
We will be the sole judge of this.  If you're unsure if we will judge something to be
Duelmasters or fantasy related, then e-mail me before you write the spotlight and
ask.  We reserve the right to take points away from a spotlight after they are given
if we judge at later time that the spotlight has been plagiarized.

-5 points per manager per turn every time a manager does not at least write one
personal ad.

4.  TOGS VI will start in arena 60 shortly after the Winter Face-to-Face (turn due
Feb 21, Aradi turn 436) and as mentioned before will last for 13 turns.  There will
be multipliers in the later rounds, which means that all points accumulated by a team
on turns 10 and 11 will be multiplied by 1.5 and all points accumulated by each team
on turns 12 and 13 will be multiplied by 2.

5.  Soultaker and Nuln will be the sole arbiters of any dispute that may arise, with
props to Sentinel for doing the score-keeping as always.  Whine all you like, we will
be glad to provide comfortable chairs and the cheese of your choice.

And there be the rules.  If you look closely, you'll notice there were a few minor
changes and additions made from the TOGS V rules.  They are as follows:

-- The Snotman & Nuln rule:  Last TOGS Snotman and Nuln randomly matched up something
like 4-5 times, so we basically decided out of pity to now give a small amount of
points (4 in this case) for winning a random against a teammate, so that you're not
completely screwed by having 2 of your 10 warriors get 0 zero points automatically.

-- Scaling Down Points for the DM:  Previously a TOGS DM would get 10 points *in
addition* to whatever challenge points they got.  This was to keep the DM from being
penalized for being at the top and give people something to fight for.  However, it
was a bit too much of an award and we decided to scale it back and eliminate the
bonus, but give full upchallenge credit whenever the DM challenges.

-- Bloodfeuds from outside TOGS teams:  This incident came up last TOGS, and it was
felt that if a person killed a non-TOGS warrior in a random, they shouldn't have to
be potentially locked into 4 turns of getting 0 points.  So we've added an additional
rule which now gives 4 points if you win when bloodfeuded by a non-TOGS warrior, at
least giving you some way to get points if you're locked into a non-TOGS bloodfeud
instead of being basically removed from the contest for 4 turns.

And lastly...

-- Team Names:  This was not listed in the rules, but to make things more festive, at
the suggestion of Manager we have decided to have the added dimension of team names!
Yes, no more boring rankings with Team 4 edging out Team 7.  Just picture reading a
TOGS turn report now, with something along the lines of "Team Fiery Starfish
obliterated Team Superior TOGSlings," just as one example.

We hope to see you all there....
