                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wakka, wakka, wakka.  I be the Duelmaster!  And don't think I don't remember all
of you nay sayers, the ones that said it would never happen.  Well, it happened, so
now you can all shut up.  I'm on the throne, and I have some grudges to exercise.
Now, if only I could get graduated to ADM....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt NIYTYOLE ISLAND will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as CASINO HAMMERZ is pushed out of top team by WHEN DOGMA FAILS, who came 
from 3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  The JOYS OF BOOZE guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, <B>SUPERIOR</B> fought MAVERICK HAMMER and gained 19 points and 
contributed to SUPERIOR FORCES 2Y's 1-1-0.  PSYCHO has lost to NINKA, falling 11 
points, while helping make HITCHCOCKIAN a 0-1-0 turn.  We should ask ASKELIA about 
the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's 
now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Don't Drop Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  VOLUNTEER FLOWERS has cause to 
stand tall, as they were NIYTYOLE ISLAND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows 
this is a team to beat.  And guess who avoided VOLUNTEER FLOWERS stable the most?  
Believe it or not, it was LA JOYEUX COCHON.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was CASINO HAMMERZ's warrior LUCKY LADY HAMMER.  More fighters 
challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  VEGGIES has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, 
PUMPKIN, who had a record of 4-1-0?' A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he 
has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

All -- Well, it looks like Light Da' Pyre has made it to ADM, achieving the Slasher
styelmaster in the Hammer Run contest.  It was a fun run for Light Da' Pyre, and for
a bit it looked like Spryte would catch him before Spryte stopped running in the
arena.  Thanks for the fun. -- Prophet, mgr. of When Dogma Fails

Hammer -- I enjoyed the Hammer Run Contest.  Thanks for putting it on.  Let me know
what I need to do to collect on the slasher stylemaster prize. -- Thanks, Prophet

                                     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!]
