                                UNITED AT NORTH FORK

     Goat took a large dollop of goat cheese and spread it on a piece of rye bread.
He then shoved the whole thing down his throat and chased it with a tankard full of
goat milk.  Wiping his mouth with the back of his hand, he began to bellow for Voo-
Doo.  A nearby dwarf lifted his head from his table, held his hands over his ears and
glared evilly at the barbarian.  Goat simply smiled and was once again grateful that
goat milk wiped out hangovers.
     The boys had stayed at one of North Fork's finest inns, "The Bogside Bistro,"
and the accommodations had been exquisite.  Goat had been up for over an hour and was
becoming impatient.
     "Where is that damnable Voo-Doo?" he thought.
     Just then he saw the stark white of body paint out of the corner of his eye, as
Voo-Doo came down the stairs with that repulsive she-thing on his arm.  The karragit
seemed quite taken with her new beau, and her fawning, preening attitude almost was
enough to cause Goat to regurgitate his breakfast.  Voo-Doo also had a large smile on
his face and strangely his friend was wearing his voodoo doll from a leather thong
around his neck and his bag was nowhere in sight.  Then a flash of blue became
visible against the verdure skin of the female and Goat realized that Voo-Doo had
given the wench his bag.  This could be serious.
     Voodoo walked over to Goat, his arm around the karragit and introduced her.
"Goat, this is Marais and she will be traveling with us!"
     Just then Marais flicked her tongue out (it must have been 14 inches long) and
licked Voo-Doo on the ear.  Voodoo smiled in pleasure, as Goat rolled his eyes.
     Marais led Voo-Doo outside and Goat followed.  The barbarian, whose intelligence
belied his great size and demeanor realized that in order for this quest to succeed,
he would have to take a back seat to Voo-Doo and the very concept seemed ludicrous to
him.
     It soon became apparent that Marais was to be their only guide and that she and
Voo-Doo seemed to be very much in love.
     "Damn, that ABRAXIS.  Damn that CFH.  How could they have sent the mighty Goat
on such a mission?"
     He began to check his gear and prepare for the swamp.
     Marais produced some creatures that appeared to be a cross between lizards and
horses.  These creatures had webbed fingers and toes just like she did.  They
appeared to be well suited to the swamp.  Well, this trip might not be so bad if only
his companions would stop with the mushy crap.
     There were four of the creatures, one for each to use for a mount, and one to
use for a pack animal.  So they saddled their mounts, loaded their gear and set off
into the swamp.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Chimlevtal!

     I want to thank Sywinell for giving me a shot at the title.  The word is that I
am not likely to hold the throne, and I wouldn't be surprised to be somewhere in the
champions after two turns.  Still it's always an honor to be here and I will do my
best to stay here.

                                             For the Glory of Chimlevtal,
                                             and the Strength of Alastari,
                                             Inmar

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to CHIMLEVTAL once again!  Biff!  Pow!  CHIMLEVTAL watched with 
glee as WHY DID I DO IT got knocked off top spot by OVERLORDS!  You know what they 
say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  COUP D'TAT moved up 17 places, to 
10th.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not MIDDLE WAY 7's opponents, after 
watching them shoot up the ranks from 22nd to 11th.  Some people say I ramble too 
much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well WHAMMO & 
THUDDA 4 U! moved up 2, to 6th.  What's with BRILLIANT ORANGE?  He actually beat 
WHAMMO & THUDDA 4 U!'s ALT, and walked away with 28 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at MILITARY MAYHEM while they watched GENERAL PURPOSE clobber SPATHA. 
He lost 20 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently 
CHIMLEVTAL isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded 
Duelmaster got 7 challenges this turn!  LORDS OF VALHALLA's hatred of SOL INVICTUS 
surfaced again as VILI challenged CHIMLEVTAL's top dog.  I'm sure CHIMLEVTAL is 
excited about VILI, the new Duelmaster from LORDS OF VALHALLA.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, STORMWATCH!  
In my day, no team with a 140-154-10 would scare me off!  What's the problem, DARQUE 
FORCES?  RYU-KISHIN expects the easy win by going 30 points down.  CALLEIGHT will 
find this a hard lesson!  RYU-KISHIN subdued CALLEIGHT.  I bet RYU-KISHIN could beat 
two-year-olds, too.  Well, THE NIGHTHAWKS knows who to set their sights on.  
LAPHROAIG didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from CHERRY 2000 
of NUMBERS GAME, who is 23 points below him.  CHERRY 2000 perhaps got hers just 
desserts, seeing as she was defeated by LAPHROAIG and ended up with 93 recognition 
points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that MALICE 
gets in.  He fights people like REZOS THE THRACIAN, 11 points below.  I thought 
MALICE showed great skill and promise when he was beat by REZOS THE THRACIAN.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of CHIMLEVTAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  ONE HIT WONDER 
looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned ASSASSIN NATION is sending him to 
the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 7-11-4?  ALT of WHAMMO & THUDDA 4 U! didn't 
know when to quit.  When you've got a 15-12-2, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  
ALT found himself really over-matched when he faced BRILLIANT ORANGE.  ALT found 
himself grossly dead at the end of the match.  BLOND MOMENT was plum wore out after 
SUBOTAI pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  WHY DID I DO IT'll have to get a little 
better before going after SUBOTAI again!  Many a warrior has met his fate in a 
hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Bi-Polar Bear -- Actually, you will notice that I talk the most when my father is
present.  It has nothing to do with someone having my back, it has to do with a

censors -- I'm winning this one. -- Master Darque
P.S.  Brave?  Don't know about that, I have a whole lot of crazy in reserve though.

     I see I shall have to watch you more carefully.... -- Ed.

Ice -- This is already a handicap match in my favor and I'm only running one team
against your two.  In the middle of a move right now and money is tight, but will
oblige you when the opportunity presents itself and call on Omni and Phantasm to pay
you a visit. -- Master Darque

Fernando -- I was running an alternate strat that did not include decise.  It might
have been better if I were, but we'll never know now. -- Ghost of Gog

Disobedience -- I didn't even have the attack to get a shot through, so my career
options are limited.  Darque isn't known for his patience with my style of fighting,
so it was off to the Dark Arena I go. -- Ghost of Ur

LP Uncas -- Come to 100.  I got a few Darque Forces members that tell me they can
stop you.  Wanna test them out? -- Master Darque

Chimlevtal -- As I write this, I am enjoying a cold ale at The Icelord's keep.  (My
thanks, warrior.)  Long ago, my brother managed here.  I like this city, but it has
been infested with chittering little rats and crybabies.  The rats and criers are the
Vendetta Cartel.  They talk tough when they're in a crowd.  I'll march right into
your crowd, boys, and knock your teeth in.  It is time to bust a few heads.  Criers,
you're first. -- RTR

Manager Dork & Juimbo -- You're the worst of the worst.  You can dish it out but you
can't take it.  Keep hiding behind your friends and quaking in your skirts, peons,
because I live by my own laws.  Talk tough now, bullies, but unlike The Icelord, I
won't obey the laws of this city if it doesn't serve my purpose.  I am going to bury
you. -- RTR

The Council of Lords -- I salute you.  I am sick of these worms.  There is no honor
in slaying these pansies and clones but slay them I will. -- RTR

High Lord Bosk -- Aloha, my brother.  I hope the vacation was great and grand.  Tal.
-- The Icelord

Polar Bear -- Your council and wisdom are always well met.  Salute. -- The Icelord

Tripwire -- Welcome back.  The COL-VC war continues because they are too stubborn to
admit they started it and as long as Manager Dorque can recruit more clones to hide
behind, it will go on forever.  I remember the great war when you with The
Highlander, Serpent, Yorke, RR and Deathman fought Allah, Fatman, Sweetness,
Lodestone, Leo, Otto and Pumpkin.  There were many others involved.  That was a war.
Chimlevtal has a tradition of relentless battle. -- The Icelord

The COL presents Chimlevtal History Facts:  On turn #20 on 6/24/87 there were 26
listed teams.  The #1 team was Walt's Kids at 69-15-3 (.821).  The DM was Snow White
of Walt's Kids who was 15-3.  The Stormguards entered Chimlevtal and went 5-0-1 on
their first turn.  I see there was a team named "Looney Toons," was this yours, RR?
If not, no other current team was listed on turn #20, though The Nighthawks were
listed on turn #19 with a 19-38-1 record.  The overall popularity leader was Pluto of
Walt's Kids.  There were 98 fights.  The most popular style was PL with 15. -- The
Icelord

Uracca -- Nice job. -- The Stormguards

Abraxis -- Thanks.  I have heard a lot of good things about R A Salvatore, so I am
reading the "Icewind Dale Trilogy" at this time.  I'm on book #2.  It is a good read.
Mr. Salvatore and Drizzt are hot right now.  I would like to see RSI saddle up with
them and get some exposure to the fans. -- The Icelord

Taxes -- Nice try.  Next time, send out your manager. -- Ryu-Kishin

Salem -- You suck.  Next time send out your Manager, Dorque. -- Damhain

Mephistopheles -- Your manager is so mighty that The Saint lists him as "?"  What a
mighty power he is, surely all of Chimlevtal lives and breathes on his words...wait,

he is a NOBODY, a "?" I could beat all five of Styx and Beyond AND your pathetic
manager with my right hand tied behind my back and a blindfold on.  TGWY. -- Duke
Gorlois

Blond Moment -- Well struck indeed.  Enjoy your glory as your team is off to a good
start and deserve it.  When I finish this humble pie, I'll try again. -- Subotai

Manager Dorque -- Any wet-behind the ear squeeb can join the VC.  Goat is your man.
-- Damhain the Satyr

Manager Dorque -- Let's see, my Stormguards have graduated 16 Lord Protectors, hmmm,
not one had 50 fights.  Earth Elemental went 30-13, Utu went 27-16-2, Kaz went 19-21-
3 and Uncas went 25-19.  Let Firehawk do the math for you, not one went 50.  You beat
your chest on the RT that you don't want anyone "to tell me how to play the game."
Yet, you have been doing just that to Bosk, Polar Bear and myself for years.  Be
silent, hypocrite. -- The Icelord

Slaughter Priest -- I am sorry to see you in such an alliance as the Crying Cartel.
I will not trade barbs and flames with you.  I have too much respect for Abarsis. --
The Icelord (Lynn Abbey told me the next book in Thieves World will come out in the
fall or around Christmas.  It will be titled "Enemies of Fortune."  Should be good.)

Let's see, The Crying Cartel has the following (active) teams in Chimlevtal:  Coup
D'Tat, Dorque Forces, Dis Tractions, Samuarai Kid II, Styx & Beyond, The Nighthawks,
Trial by Combat, Why Did I Do It and Stretsamleud.  The Council of Lords have:  The
Stormguards, The Stormbringers, Overlords, Lords of Valhalla and Stormwatch.  The
Cryers best recruit some more mindless followers and bring back all their inactive
teams to make this fair. -- The Icelord

Manager Dorque and Dumbo -- You two are really pathetic. -- The Icelord

Crimson Zit -- OK, little man, here is the high light of your DM career.  A personal
from me.  Do you REALLY think you are anyone in Chimlevtal?  Even The Saint lists you
as "?"  Did you run Knights of Doom last time you were here?  Let's see, my
Stormguards went 3-6 against that team, so yes, you had the edge there.  Polar Bear
tells me Stormwatch never fought the KOD, so nothing big there.  You're not off to a
great start against me yet, what is it 2-0 in my favor now?  My Stormguards have
fought 187 different teams in Chimlevtal.  We have graduated 16 Lord Protectors.  I
have a data base of over 800 enemy warriors in this city.  Do you really expect me to
recognize that you did anything in the COL-VC war, besides write obnoxious personal
ads?  You are nothing and unworthy of my attention.  If they allowed managers to meet
on the sands, you would be silenced for ever, zit-boy. -- The Icelord (I see you
manage the #30 team (out of 30 teams.)  Your 5-9-1 record is something that should
bring you great pride.  At least that last place standing should warrant 5 or 6 loud
and obnoxious personal ads from you, I would surmise.)

RTR -- Are you here yet, harbinger of flame? -- The Icelord

The Icelord -- My Brother, I prepare the tarn for flight.  As always we find much
noise pollution in the airs above Chimlevtal.  I couldn't tell if what I heard this
last turn was gnat farts or The Jimbo's mouth running.  Both have equal import and
both have similar odors.  I salute you, Warrior.  Est sularis oth mithas! -- High
Lord Bosk

Polar Bear -- See above, My Lady.  I salute you, too. -- High Lord Bosk

Crimson Zit -- What a sight for sore eyes!

The Icelord -- I know we (at the Council) really enjoy your Chimlevtal Facts.  What a
long history you have in this arena, Mighty One. -- High Lord Bosk

One Hit Wonder -- You parry well, but when I finally got my hit through, sure enough,
down you went.  I like a man who lives up to his advertising. -- Mendal Omshil
P.S.  Winning like that makes me feel wonderfully darque, and I like that, too.
P.P.S.  I hope *I* didn't seal your fate.  True, you lost, but you did learn a skill.

Calypso -- I just couldn't seem to get the rhythm on that one.  I'd think I had it,
and then it would go off in a new direction.  Disconcerting, to say the least. --
Kambard Murh

Sylvester -- I have to chuckle at the aptness, you Loony Tooner.  Since I am a
"puddy-tat...." -- Les Nayle, never one to resist a chance to crow

Orcus -- Don't you find fighting on land kinda hard? -- Norgen Pelh

Ghost of Loose Sand -- That was not the beginning I had in mind for my career, and
even less the one you had in mind for yours, I fear.  I drink a toast in your honor.
-- Kolum Marod

If I missed any personals directed to us in the newsletter, sorry, but I can't READ

                                     DEATH FEST

     The ferocious ghosts of former glories whispered across the wind swept sands of
DM 59; agonizing incessantly due to the diminutive demise of the Delarq arena known
as Illis.
     Tattered banners and forgotten memories wailed in the wind for a dynamic death
march to dawn once more upon the blood stained sands of the Delarq slow arena.
     The distant call crying for  a declaration of restoration amidst the ruin of the
all but forgotten Delarq arena carried to the far corners of Alastari; drawing the
Devious, the Diabolical, the Dangerous and the Down Challenging to cross blades and
wage warfare among an assemblage of new stables managed by the Known and Unknown;
willing to spill fresh blood, while carving their destiny during 15 Rounds of contest
driven combat to be known as the "Illis Incredibly Diabolical Delarq Death Fest".
     A lone cloaked figure huddled by lamplight in a remote outpost near the
crossroads of ElseWhere and ElseWhen; feverishly formulating the foundational
framework for the dawning of the Delarq Death Fest in DM 59, complete with
Gladiatorial Commission sanctioned prizes to promote the growing thirst for a Delarq
Slow Arena Death Festival.

     Delarq Death Fest Opening Round debuts the first turn immediately following the
Summer 2004 F2F Tourney and continues through the completion of 15 consecutive
rounds.
     Death Fest points are Won or Lost ONLY in the DM 59 Delarq Slow Arena [Tourneys
DO NOT Add or Subtract from the Death Fest Point Scoring System]:

Death Fest Scoring Format:
Win =3D +2 pts
Loss =3D -1 pt
Kill =3D +5 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Death =3D -3 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Dark Arena Kill =3D +10 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Dark Arena Death =3D -5 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Revenged Blood Feud =3D +5 pts [successful Revenged Blood Feud provides Death Fest
contestants the opportunity to cancel out 3 pts for Death and 1 pt for Loss; while
gaining +1 pt overall for the Revenged Blood Feud in addition to the +2 pts for Win]

    DEATH FEST PRIZES will be awarded to the Top Ten Death Fest Stables on the basis
of Total Points*** accumulated during the 15 rounds of competition as follows:

1.  Favorite Weapon Knowledge for 1 (one) warrior ranked Initiate or higher on the
Final Round to be revealed by RSI to each of the Top Ten Death Fest Stables
2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters and NPCs [yet to be determined according to how
many DA Monsters and NPCs are available in DM 59 for Renaming]
3.  The Top Five Death Fest Stables will receive New Team Rollup Certificates as
follows:  1st (10), 2nd (8), 3rd (6), 4th (4) and 5th (2)
4.  Renaming Illis Arena for 6 months plus Receiving 6 months Free Play courtesy of
RSI will be awarded to the manager of the 1st Place Death Fest Stable
5.  Discussions are underway regarding a possible Special Award granted to the Illis
Iron Stable qualifiers who compete in 67 of a possible 75 fights during the course of
the 15 consecutive rounds of the Death Fest [Key Factor is How Many (?) stables will
be competing in the Death Fest without drawing away participation by current managers
in the remaining slow arenas!]  Therefore, it is important for all managers entering
stables in DM 59 for the upcoming Death Fest to contact RSI as soon as possible
regarding their participation in this contest so that a Final Ruling on the proposed
Illis Iron Stable Award can be issued by RSI.

***TieBreaker is determined on the Final Round by the DM 59 Newsletter Recognition
Rankings.  The stable with the Highest Ranked Active Gladiator is granted the
decision.  [Example: Warrior A and Warrior B are both listed in the Recognition
Rankings with 87 pts; however, because Warrior A is listed in the Recognition
Rankings ahead of Warrior B, then Warrior A is granted the TieBreaker Decision for
His/Her stable!]

     Opening Round Team Spotlight Bonus [minimum 15 paragraphs!]  Each Delarq Death
Fest competitor who writes a Team Spotlight featuring their Stable (Name) and
Managerial Alias [Gladiatorial Names Optional] in regards to competing in the Delarq
Death Fest will receive 25 pts added to His/Her opening round score.
     Illis Iron Stable Bonus [in addition to the proposed award awaiting RSI
approval!]  Any manager whose stable competes in at least 67 of the possible 75
fights during the 15 rounds of Death Fest receives 25 points added to His/Her final
overall score [this allows each stable the cushion of missing one round of
competition; plus up to 3 additional fights due to waiting for replacement rollups
from Deaths suffered either in Tourneys or during the Death Fest contest in DM 59
over the course of 15 rounds of competition!]

                                 TEN TURNS OF HELL:
                        The KLK Capture The Flag Competition

In the spirit of the ongoing effort to make arena play what it used to be (FUN!!), I
am proud to announce the KLK Capture The Flag Competition.  The competition will be
held in Jhans (DM-36, which has, by the way, grown in size equal to Talcama already).
:)  We are announcing this contest early to allow managers time to prep.

Rules:
     -- On turn 462 (due 8/4/04) the lowest ranked warrior on your team is given your
team's 'flag' (he is your initial flag defender).
     -- Starting on turn 463 (due 8/18/04) flags will be defended every turn and turn
463 is the turn scoring will begin.
     -- Fights involving flags are winners-take-all and a warrior can carry as many
flags as he can win.
     -- If a warrior holding a flag either A) goes inactive, B) loses to a stand-by
warrior or C) gets DA'd, he forfeits all flags he has and they are returned the their
original team's lowest ranked warrior.
     -- If you hold your own flag on an inactive warrior you receive NO POINTS that
turn.
     -- If a warrior graduates to AD holding flags starting on the next turn those
flags will be defended by the lowest ranked warrior on the team of the graduating
warrior.
     -- Scoring as follows for each turn:
          2 pts -- possession of your own team flag
          1 pt -- possession any other flag
          1 pt -- for each win
          1 pt -- for each kill
          1 pt -- for each award you receive in the newsletter
     -- You may enter as many teams as you like (per RSI rules) but each team is its
own entry.
     -- Tie-Breaker goes to the team that had the most points from flags.
     -- If still tied the tie-breaker will be the team that had the most points from
kills.  (It's the Delarq way.)
     -- The contest lasts 10 turns and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd
(based on highest point totals)

Prizes: (what you've been waiting on)
1st -- 3 know favorites potions*
       DA warrior named after winning manager
2nd -- 2 know favorites potions*
3rd -- 1 know favorites potion*

* These are full favorite potions (weapon, rhythms and tactics) and can only be used
on warriors with at least 4 FE.

     How's that for paying out? (grin)  Even if you think that it's all about the TC,
these prizes should be enough to draw you in.  (You know who you are.)
     I hope to see friend and foe alike come to Jhans.  Legion, Froths, and all the
others...this is your personal invite.  Can you win?  Can you survive 10 turns of
Hell in Jhans?
     Note:  Special thanks to RSI for helping make this contest possible.  Thanks
guys!
