                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings, people of Arvat.  I must say that it is certainly an honor to retain
my title as Duelmaster.  This past turn I defended my title against May Fistafoles.
It was a good fight but in the end I proved to be too much for old May.  She is a
worthy Contender.  I would welcome a rematch whenever you might want it.
     I noticed that a new contender popped into the Arena,  Pickled Pigskin.  Nice
record there, Pickled.  You shall be my primary challenge this turn.  I'd like to see
how I fare against a warrior that is as developed as you appear to be.  My back up
challenge goes to Private Property.  I've beaten him once before.  I'd like to think
that I can beat him again although he has been tearing through the arena ever since
then.
     I know that this race will already have run by the time we all read this but I
would like to make a prediction.  Smarty Jones is going to win the Belmont and become
the first horse in almost 3 decades to win the triple crown.  I was his training
partner, before I left for my career in Duel 2, for a short time and I can tell you
that he is awfully good.  He is my pick to win the Belmont.
     Well, I'd better go and train if I am to retain my title this coming turn.  I am
going to need it.

          Your Duelmaster,
          Stylish

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ARVAT. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SOLAR MAN, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing LIL ETH 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  LIL ETH was subdued by SOLAR MAN and drops 10 points.  Our 
battling duelmaster STYLISH has managed to hold the title, fending off MAY 
FISTAFOLES' none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, DEVIL ADVOCATES.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that CALL THE PRIEST was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of CALL THE PRIEST's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause DEVIL ADVOCATES beats feet every time CALL THE PRIEST smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, BASKERVOLE 
would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  Was it 
guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had TRADEMARK challenge up 31 points in the 
rankings to take on PICKLED PIGSKIN?  A Carrion Bird Sellout:  TRADEMARK 10-3-1 
fights PICKLED PIGSKIN 12-0-0.  (BYOB)  
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Fisherman's Wharf -- Jeez!  This is getting to sound like a broken record.  We at
Saratoga Glory are truly sorry for the death of your warrior.  Savory's kill of Levee
Loafer was not intended.  We are in no way "hunting" your warriors.  We will
completely understand if you are upset with us.  I am sure that we wouldn't be too
pleased either.  We would like to offer our condolences on your warrior's passing.
Again the kill was not intentional. -- the Trainer and Saratoga Glory.

Levee Loafer -- I am truly sorry about killing you.  I had looked forward to numerous
duels between us. -- Savory

Dahlgren -- Bad, bad matchup for you.  Thanks for that train though. -- Pretty Wild

Dieter Kwan -- You must have had some kind of a let-down fight for losing the throne
last turn.  I am shocked that I won that fight.  If you want a rematch just let me
know. -- Trademark

Private Property -- Ouch!  That wasn't pretty on my end.  I obviously have a loooong
way to go before I am in your league.  Good job.  Thanks for the skills though. --
Solar Man

Blitzkrieg -- Do you happen to run in EVERY arena???? -- the Trainer

Savory -- (mournfully)  I guess now I'm supposed to start SERIOUS loafing.... --
Ghost of Levee Loafer

Tad Deville -- Remind me never to wrestle with you.  Whew! -- Tassalter

An Ambitious Guard?  Phooie. -- Baskervole

Desert Fox -- I did not expect you to swim so well. -- Boatman Ku

The Trainer, Saratoga Glory -- Silver Minnow's loss was just one of those things.
The damned fishes are endangered anyway, so what's one more down the drain?  No,
seriously, warriors die.  Just one of those things.  But your sentiment is
appreciated. -- Jorja, Fisherman's Wharf
P.S.  Now if I can just figure out what I did with the replacement....

                                     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!
