                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I guess that's what they call backing into the throne, eh fellas?  I mean,
I've lost like nine in ten fights, lose last week and the commission STILL makes me
number one!!!  Ya just gotta love it!  Been a long time coming too!  I mean here I am
with about as many of those political point things as I have fights!  Guess getting
that rating was all I needed, which by the way my trainers said I learned WAAAAY
early!  Any ways, I'm tired of takin' all you guys' best shots.  I mean it HURTS!  I
think I'll test this immortality thing they just gave me in the dark arena.  Maybe
I'll get lucky.

See ya around!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as FOOD FIGHT can attest...  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 11 points to 
GRUDGEBRINGER.  (Discrete enough, SNOWBALL?) Well, Duelmaster RYANATOR Dark Arena 
Challenged DARK ARENA's ARENAMASTER KAGHAL.  Is a 26-18-0 good enough?  The crowds 
were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER KAGHAL killed the Duelmaster, RYANATOR, leaving 
OBSIDIAN HALL in mourning.  Even 115 points weren't good enough to save RYANATOR from 
APATHY.  ANASAZI welcomes APATHY as the new Duelmaster!  Word has it one team in 
ANASAZI is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     And how sociable are ANASAZI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of FOOD FIGHT, alone 
and unchallenged.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of JAILBIRDS, so 
did that sorry team shy from FOOD FIGHT Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
SQUEEZE CHEESE is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't FOOD FIGHT proud!  
POKER FACE HAMMER found himself challenged by a warrior 20 below:  HERETIC BARBECUE.  
HERETIC BARBECUE of WHEN DOGMA FAILS kept its wits as it was beat by POKER FACE 
HAMMER.  Willing to win at any cost is CHARLIE BUCKET, who challenged POC, 9 points 
junior.  Our sympathies, POC!  I thought CHARLIE BUCKET showed great skill and 
promise when he was bested by POC.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  How true is PATH OF 
THE BLADE's mettle?  Just one week remains for the avenging of EXUS' death.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in ANASAZI would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ANASAZI?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Hammer Run Racers -- Things are beginning to heat up in the competition!  Prophet and
Kellog register new warriors while Philthy Phil and the aforementioned Kellog score
successful bloodfeud Revenges vs. my warriors!  Who else will place their bid with a
new warrior registration in the P-ads for the opportunity to win 5 NTRU's for being
the first to graduate their declared Style? -- Hammer

Vlad -- Greedy, but no Bloodfeud success!  I have been adjusted by Hammer to try to
learn some more Skills if anyone is so inclined to increase my learning capacity? --
Wild Card Hammer

Doctor Lecter -- Congratulations on your Bloodfeud success and for your lead in the
Total Parody class of the Hammer Run!  Hammer has made some minor adjustments for my
next dance on the sands! -- Lucky Lady Hammer

Snowball -- Congratulations!  You are a fine competitor!  I see Kellog advised you to
make some adjustments to succeed in the Bloodfeud! -- Roulette Hammer

Silk -- That was a rough way to learn some Skills!  At least we won't randomly
matchup for T-449 with you in the Challenger Adepts and me in the Challenger Inits!
-- Poker Face Hammer

Iron Chef -- So I continue to lose with another input blunder!  This time it was
Hammer directing me to challenge you sight unseen!  You would think I would benefit
with Skills! -- Black Jack Hammer

All -- No Challenges and No Avoids by any of my warriors for T-449.  Congratulations
to those of you who took the time to benefit!  Otherwise, You Snooze You Lose! --
Hammer

Hammer -- Please enter Shocktart in your tourney as a WS. -- Distorted

Phil -- Dr. Lector seems to be a good one! -- Distorted

Pig Battalion -- ?  A-10 did nothing to me except lose dreadfully to a warrior well
below him.  He sucks and you should put a bullet in him.  Oh, you forgot a couple
quips so:
Your mamma
Punk
Poop Face
Hook Nose
Dork
I am sure your first grade mentality can come up with a few more. -- Distorted
P.S.  Old Major is just that...old...feed him to the pigs also.

To All -- Wonkatania is a "pilot" warrior.  I have tried something new.  If it works
I will share info...to those I choose to.  You will find him "interesting" when stats
are concerned. -- Distorted

Phil -- Let us re-establish the A.A. once more, to bring justice back to #33! --
Distorted

Hammer -- Canadian is a basher from Pig Battalion.  I have sent him to the Dark
Arena.  I wrote it down twice and underlined it and sent in an obnoxious personal ad
in the hopes that RSI will send him there.  Wish me luck.  Joe Friday is coming soon
I swear and will compete in the hammer run. -- Kellog

Roulette Hammer -- How poetic was it that Men was killed by a female. -- Kellog

To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.
                               --*  The Firm *--

26 July 2003
     Citizens of Alastari, a bright dawn has risen.  While you slept, a pernicious
force has entered the once-fair City of Aruak.  It fought alongside their treasured
warriors, it drank with their fans, and it slept with their women.  Now the masks are
coming off.
     Warriors, be afraid...be very afraid.  After years of Andorian managers ranting
that Aruak is the safest city in Alastari, the Frothingslosh Syndicate has selected
Aruak City as the home for its next epic 'contest'--Murder by Numbers II.  Our spies
have selected the warriors for extermination, and the executioners have had several
months to prepare.  Now a new age of darkness will descend upon Aruak, as the
Syndicate and its allies bring an entirely new level of competition to the arena!
Downchallenges!  Assassinations!  Small poodles as hors d'oeuvres!
     The Murder by Numbers II 'rules' will be announced next cycle.  However, we
invite all managers, from all corners of Alastari, to come to Aruak City and take
part...in one way or another.  Help defend the honor of a long heralded haven for the
pure, or join the forces of change in their siege of the ice-cream and cake
stronghold of the Dukes of Nerf-Dueling!
     This exercise is not for either the faint of heart or the weak willed.  Blood
will flow, brains will leak, and beer will be chugged.  Either way, we welcome you
with open arms and gleaming blades.
     This public service announcement has been brought to you by Frothingslosh Epic
Contests (tm), the number 86, and the letter 'K'.

The Frothingslosh Syndicate

           *     *     *     *The Third Annual Turf War*     *     *     *
     Yes, it's time again for alliances to go to war!  TW3 will be held in DM 47
(North Fork) at a date to be  specified later--right after Crip's Incomprehensible
Contest is over...but I'm sure everyone wants to get their teams there soon!  Here
are the rules:

1.  Each alliance must have a leader declare the arrival of his alliance.  The leader
    will be responsible for verifying any and all teams/managers who declare to the
    alliance he/she is leading.
2.  Each manager, team declaring for the contest must have approval of the leader,
    donate one Roll-up Certificate ($5) to the prize pot (send it to me by diplo, by
    snail, or a note to customer service), and declare his/her team by diplo, p-ad or
    snail.
3.  Each team may declare one warrior as champion.  All points scored by a champ are
    double!
4.  Prizes are as follows (mostly...there WILL be some things added as the prize pot
    grows with entry donations--this list is not final!)
    *  Highest scoring alliance -- Rename Arena 47 for a period of 6 months, one half
       of the total prize pot donated; roll-up certs.
    *  The Alliance with the most returns from the DA will get to re-name the DA
       monsters for a period of 6 months.
    *  The alliance with the most warriors listed as style masters will get to pick
       the Alastari city/arena to host the next Grand Tournament.
    *  The warrior with the most front page honors/awards will have the Arenamaster
       named after him for a period of 6 months.
    *  The Alliance with the most front page Honors/Awards will have the honor of
        picking the *slow* arena to host the Fifth Annual Turf War.
    *  The team with the most listings as Style Master will find out the favorites of
       one of their warriors.
    *  The warrior with the most listings as Style Master will fight at my expense
       for five turns (I will transfer to the manager's account).
    *  The Alliance with the most kills will be able to re-name the stand-in warriors
       for a period of 6 months.
    *  The warrior that scores the most total points will fight at my expense for 5
       turns (I will transfer $7.50 to the manager's account).
    *  The team that scores the most total points will receive an extra share of
       roll-up certs from the prize pot.
     There may be more categories to come, and the prize pot still has to be
divided...I'm open to category/prize ideas--and further donations to the prize pot.
     The contest will run for *TEN* turns; prizes will be awarded at the end of the
11th turn.
     Scoring will be as follows:
* 5 points per fight, doubled for each of the following conditions met:
     -- Two Alliance     -- Champion
     -- Challenge        -- Two Champions
     -- Bloodfeud        -- Challenger losing
     -- Kill
     (Note:  DA losses are exempt, but DA wins will be *tripled*!!!  Ex:  Happy
Slasher goes to the DA and dies, no points are lost.  If he wins, his team scores 60
points!  If he was a champ, he scores 120 points!)
     Use the following chart to calculate scores:
Conditions Met:       0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7
Points Per Fight:     5    10    20    40    80   160   320   640
* Awards/Honors and Style Masters will each be awarded points also.  Find the total
number of each (do note add Awards and Style Masters together) and consult the graph
below.  Champs that score an award or style master count as two.
     1 --   5      7 --  320
     2 --  10      8 --  640
     3 --  20      9 -- 1280
     4 --  40     10 -- 2560
     5 --  80     11 -- 5280
     6 -- 100     (x2 for each extra)
Note -- These categories *count as "triple"*--they will be figured for each team,
*AND* again for each alliance *as well as* for each warrior!
*  Each and every mention in the Spy Report is worth 5 points...period.
*  TVs will be scored on the same scale as Awards/Style Masters, but the total points
will be x10.  TC's will be scored as TV's, but x10 more.
Number of TV/TC's          Points Scored (TV/TC)
     1      50/ 500
     2     100/1000
     3     200/2000
     4     400/4000
     +     x2/ x2 (for each extra)
     Each alliance will start with 5000 points, scores for *fights* will be added to
the winner's total *AND* deducted from the losers.
     Come  one and all, defend your turf and the honor of your alliance...or your
own!
