                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Lords and Ladies of Arvat, I bid you all greetings.  I have retained my title
for the third straight turn.  This time I was victorious over Lil Eth of the Devil
Advocates.  In our previous duel, I managed to come out the victor.  This duel was no
different then the last time we met.  Here is a quick recap of the fight.
     In our previous fight I never gave Lil a chance to swing.  I've seen her in
action before when she gets on a roll and it isn't pretty.  She hits pretty hard and
I didn't want for me to be a on the receiving end of one of her Battle Axe swings.  I
figured that the best thing to do was to go on the offense and just keep pounding
away until I landed a few well placed shots.
     I came out hard and immediately launched into a vicious assault.  Lil was
prepared for my stroke and was able to fend off my swing with her shield.
Unfortunately for Lil, I was expecting her counter and I wanted to make sure that she
wouldn't have that damn wall between us for the fight.  I put the full force of my
body into that swing, doing everything that I could to cut through her defense.  The
moment my blow landed I knew it was a good one.  Lil's shield exploded into a million
shards and she threw down what was left of it.  I flashed a grin of confidence.  I
knew I had the upper hand.  I swung a few more times trying to circle to Lil's
blindside.  However doing so almost proved for my downfall.  I gave Lil too much of
an opening and she jumped all over it.  Before I was ready, Lil, now holding her
Battle Axe with two hands instead of one, brought her Executioner's Blade in a sweep
towards my skull.  In an instant I leaped to her strong side and then I launched back
at her with my blade trying to cut through her armored shell.  My swing was a
powerful one and it caught her flush on the throat.  My blade found a weak spot in
her plate and sliced through deep into her flesh.  Not giving Lil time to regroup, I
pulled my weapon free then feinted low and before my opponent could react I struck
again, this time a brutal hit to her head.  My assault was so ferocious and strong
that the Arenamaster had to step in and end things before it got out of hand.  I was
     I'd like to thank Lil for a well fought duel.  Unless it is by her hand I do not
expect to be squaring off against her anytime soon.  This turn I'd like to give some
new blood a chance.  I'll be challenging Little Rainbow.  We've never fought that I
can recall and LB has been steadily climbing into the top ranks.  Little Rainbow's
record is very impressive and I will need to be at the top of my game if I'm to
return to the top spot.
     Well, I'm off to go prepare.  I hope to see you all here next turn.

Your Duelmaster,

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARVAT games.  Former top team DEVIL ADVOCATES was 
unseated this week as THE STORMLORDS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  SENSOO O SURU caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TAD DEVILLE and was awarded 25 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SENSOO O SURU put down TAD 
DEVILLE, causing him to lose 22 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched 
of the fights this week, the spotlight was on LITTLE RAINBOW as he bore arms against 
the challenge of reigning Duelmaster SAVORY.  Although LITTLE RAINBOW made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SAVORY.  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in ARVAT seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARVAT.  ARVAT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy guilds 
is DEVIL ADVOCATES, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of FISHERMAN'S 
WHARF last week.  Busy avoiding DEVIL ADVOCATES?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  THOR take warning!  You have more than a few enemies 
in ARVAT.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that 
S. MOE DIUS posted a challenge against the more highly recognized THOR.  The results, 
you ask?  Well, the firebrand S. MOE DIUS was defeated by THOR.  Remember warriors, 
this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of 
SILVER TRAIN who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 11 points below in 
the rankings.  I thought SILVER TRAIN showed great skill and promise when he bested 
LOGGERHEAD.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARVAT as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Tad Deville -- Yeah, and you probably down-challenged the bathtub monsters, too.  Ah,
what's the use, eh?  I can understand wanting the easy wins on the way to graduation,

so as to live to REACH graduation.  And if Jorja's not going to do any managing, I
gotta take what I get.  (heavy, put-up sigh)  I hope you appreciate YOUR manager.
He's paying attention. -- Tassalter

Dieter Kwan -- You've got more fights than I do, so how come YOU got four skills and
I only got TWO?  I feel like I'm fishing without bait. -- Boatman Ku

Sensoo O Suru -- (reeling back in shock)  I...WON?  That's incredible! -- Baskervole
P.S.  Tell me you weren't suffering from an input error.

Obsidian Golem -- Careful there!  Obsidian takes a great edge, yes, but it also
shatters if you hit it wrong.  And while I wasn't trying to hit it WRONG, I was
hitting. -- Little Rainbow

Izusu Trooper -- Why flaming? -- Loggerhead
P.S.  Do golems not MIND flaming?
P.P.S.  But don't burn ME, okay?  I'm waterlogged.

The Trainer -- Well, the thing about a root canal is that afterwards, the tooth has
no feeling at all.  Definitely better! -- Jorja

Lil Eth -- Sorry again for the rough treatment.  I'll buy you a beer and the Blue
Boar Inn.  Thanks for the fight. -- Savory

Freki -- Great job in beating me down.  The boss thought for sure that this would be
a good matchup for me.  Alas it was not to be.  Congrats on the win.  This loss is
forcing me to fight at night now.  Oh well.  I wasn't cut out for being a warrior
anyway. -- Dynamite Flyer

Thor -- Jeeeez!!!!!  Four straight turns.  We just can't seem to figure each other
out and know we've both stopped learning anything at all.  I really hope that we
don't see each other again this turn.  It's gotten old.  At least we know we are an
even match.  Congrats on the win. -- Stratostar

VW Beetle -- Bleh!  I stink.  It's off to the Dark Arena for me.... -- Serial Bride

All -- Well it's two more fodder for the Dark Arena Monsters for me.  I was hoping to
have finally filled out a decent team but I've got two here that just aren't cutting
it for me.  Here they are:  Dynamite Flyer is a SL 13-5-11-15-17-16-7 Norm/Good.
Learned only three skills and wasn't fun at all to run.  Too many flailing attacks
for my tastes.  Serial Bride is a PR 11-10-11-15-9-11-17 Very Little/Good.  The fact
that he didn't learn anything in his first fight and the Very Little Endurance just
ruined any chances he ever had at making this squad.  I don't care if my guys lose or
if they don't have "perfect" stats but they have to be somewhat fun and interesting
for me.  Both of them were neither for me.  I hope to be fielding a full five
warriors on this team sometime soon. -- the Trainer

Arvat -- May we all have dominated the Tournament. -- the Trainer

Flaming Death -- Well, that's better; you're actually running three guys now.  I hope
your studly manager gets involved and writes something soon.  We'd love hate to have
to kick your tail to get him to be a little vocal.  I'm sure you just want to try and
remain anonymous but I don't plan on allowing that to happen.  Sorry. -- the Trainer

the Trainer -- It will be great to see you in Chimlevtal!  Let me know what team is
yours.  Salute! -- The Icelord

the Trainer and Jorja -- Many thanks. -- The Stormlords

Stratostar -- Though that was neat, you're right, we need to try our skills against
other warriors once in a while.  Look at that initiates class grow! -- Thor

Arvat -- Sorry, not a lot of time for personals, an old buddy of mine, who I haven't
seen for 9 years stopped by for a weekend of swilling, feasting and a little gaming
action.  Most hussah!  Salute, Bjorn the Brave!!  I make the sign of the Hammer and
of the Axe in your honor! -- The Icelord

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

                                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!
