                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, that was somewhat surprising.  I did not expect to fight for the title and
I certainly did not expect to win it.  But that doesn't make it any less exciting!
     This also wins me the bet that I had with my teammates Justice and Torment as to
which of us would be the first to achieve the title.  I really would have figured it
would be Justice, but I had to make the wager on myself.  The funny thing is that my
manager keeps telling me that I'm the best of the three of us, but that I fight the
worst.  Of course he also keeps saying that Ron Way stinks, but he is now 13-1-2....
     I am sure that if this was one of the members of our sister guild, the Devil
Advocates, you would be hearing of how many zillions of DMs and graduates they have
had, but since I am the first, I see no need in trumpeting their glory!  We are going
to be just a good in the long run, I feel.  Even though we have had the same bad luck
getting recruits....
     I'm looking down in the rankings and I don't love what I see here.  Ron Way is
one of ours, so no challenge there.  I think I could beat Demmell and Roland, but
they are alliance mates, so I can't challenge them.  Izusu Trooper likely won't fight
and would crush me.  Freewheel Burnin' is a TERRIBLE matchup for me.  United is much
more experienced, but I think I'm probably more skilled.  And Loggerhead is the stand
by...I think I will challenge United with a backup on Loggerhead.  I guess we will
see what happens!
     If I'm back next turn, you'll hear more of the same....

                                                       Misery, 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.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week FISHERMAN'S WHARF went 5-0-0 to move 
up 6 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which LUROCIAN GUARD 
managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
LAURA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested 
JERRY HAHN and was awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, LAURA put down JERRY HAHN, causing him to lose 20 points of 
recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was 
on LOGGERHEAD as he bore arms against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster MISERY.  
The city has turned out in honor of LOGGERHEAD, for with his arena victory he may now 
lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of 
the old women in ARVAT seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators? 
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ARVAT these days is CALL THE PRIEST.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding CALL THE PRIEST.  Indeed it was 
DEVIL ADVOCATES.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  
EVERYTHING ZEN take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ARVAT.  I can not 
but mention with disdain the name of SAPHRONICUS who this week posted a challenge to 
a warrior a full 11 points below in the rankings.  I thought SAPHRONICUS showed great 
skill and promise when he was defeated by MACHINEHEAD.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARVAT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, 
indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await 
me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

All -- I am heading out of town for a vacation.  So do not expect much from me next
turn. -- Rillion

Loggerhead -- Well your head should be safe against my team.  We do not try to kill
our opponents.  Particularly ones that have a propensity to lose more then they win.
As for Jorja being a criminal I thought it was a given that all managers where
criminals.  The profession seems to attract that sort of shady character. -- Demmell

Peter Piquin -- Sorry but Jalinn was busy that night, busy dying. -- Rillion

Loggerhead -- Only nine minutes?  That was disappointingly quick. -- Roland

Misery -- Maybe next time, in many turns. -- Demmell

For the Godlings! -- Thanks for the sacrifice. -- Gelen

Roland -- I say to you, Heck!  I was just getting INTO that nap, and you ended the
fight.  Listen, I need my beauty sleep! -- Loggerhead

Psychotron -- Just being near you makes my head ache.  Go away. -- Sarlow

Servius -- There are some days when standing knee deep in cold water waiting for a
fish to swim by sounds really good. -- Heron

Artemidorus II -- Why am I not surprised at how that fight came out? -- Peter Piquin

Arcadius -- It's those rural notions.  Oh, wait, hell, you died.  Damn.  I really
didn't want to kill you, just to WIN, and now, damn.  I'm an idiot, that's what I am,
killing somebody I could've beat three or four more times....  Damn. -- Fishgiz

Sextus -- And now, a thief!  Honestly, do you know how hard it is to find a thief who
even has a CHANCE in the arena?  Don't DO this to me.  I'm positively getting
WRINKLES over this death stuff. -- Arenamistress Sugar

Demmel -- (depressed look)  Probably NOT a fluke, because *I* am not getting any
better. -- Loggerhead
P.S.  (brightening)  Of course, I could be getting WORSE.

Jalinn -- That's going to far, you know?  There are lots of people who just can't
handle hot peppers, and no insult to them, they just can't.  It's like being color-
blind. -- Peter Piquin, mourning the passing of a cherished opponent

Rillion -- Well, if she's hosed, doesn't that mean she's clean? -- Peter Piquin
P.S.  Clean is good.

                  Win     Loss     Kill     Die

Dark Arena        +10      -5       xx       xx
Special Scoring:
     a.  Each mention in the Spy Report is worth 2 points (team mentions only!)
     b.  Each Style Master is worth 2 points.
     c.  Duelmaster Throne is worth 2 points
Champions:
     a.  Champions may be declared, but are not mandatory.  If declared, the Champion
         must be in the Adepts or lower brackets on the turn they are declared
         without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including
         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
Bloodfeuds:
     a.  Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns.  However, the same warrior may not
         be used all four turns.  4 turns means 4 separate warriors.  A penalty of
         -10 will be given to the team who violates this.
Special Conditions:
     a.  I reserve the right for all final decisions.
     b.  If I make a mistake, I'll multiply the points by 2.
     c.  If you claim I did, and *YOU* are wrong, I'll subtract points at the rate of
         x10.
     d.  Each alliance begins with zero (0) points.
     e.  Dark Arena may be used on the first turn of every warrior with no penalty
         (this means a warrior with 0 FE).
     f.  TVs won after the contest begins gain a 25 point one time score once the
         tourney reports are posted in the NL.
     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the
         same conditions as noted for TVs.
     h.  NO switching alliance once verified by an alliance that a team has declared
         for.
     i.  Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5.
PRIZES:
     Turf Wars are a "Winner Takes All" type contest.  All prizes and 100% of the RU
Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:
     a.  renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena;
     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!

In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
