                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

One week ago.

     Deep within the underground fortress known as the Pit.  A silver vertical slash
opens in a heavily sealed room.  The straight line of the slash rotates into an
opening in the air.  A hooded and cloaked figure steps out of the newly formed
gateway and as soon as he clears it the line snaps shut.  A quick glance at the thick
dust on everything lets him know even without feeling for the weave of the wards he
left to protect his private rooms that no one has disturbed them in the seven months
that he has been away.  A wave of his hand and the dust seems to sweep itself away.
He strides across the room to a chair almost large enough to be a throne and sits
     He takes a deep breath of the newly cleaned room and thinks to himself, "Ahh, my
precious Jhans.  I have missed her."  He reflects on the circumstances that have
brought him back to his favored stomping grounds.  A call from his Confederate
Baphomet (how he had found him in the plane that he was currently inhabiting still
befuddled him.) asking for his aid to resurrect their failing city.  It had taken him
all of two seconds to pledge his aid.  He smiled.  He really had missed Jhans.  A
sudden loud sound carrying from the depths of the fortress brought him out of his
     He allowed the power to fill him as he stood up and unraveled the weaves of the
wards holding the doors closed.  As he stepped out of the room, the power filling him
increased his senses far beyond his normal limits.  And with it he realized what he
was hearing, his warriors, his Fallen, still following the training schedule that he
had set for them.  He couldn't help but smile.  He would have to give them all
     As he entered the training grounds the ever alert Formel looked up from her
sparring with the heavily muscled Raziel and cried out, "My Lord!"
     The whole team stopped what they were doing and turned, dropping to their knee
with the opposite hand's knuckles pressed into the dirt.  Azrael looked them over
and, grinning, said, "Rise."  And as his warriors came to their feet he asked his
First, Raziel, "Where is Libel?  Is she injured?"
     Raziel responded with an extremely disgusted look on his face, "She left my
Lord.  Felt that she did not have time to wait for your return to climb to her
     "No matter.  She is easily replaced.  As you have no doubt noticed, I have
returned.  The Alliance returns.  We are going to rebuild our city into what it was,
into what we had started to make it before the kLk/DOOMcorps war tore it apart.  I
pledge to you, my Faithful, my Fallen, that I am here for the duration.  I allowed
things to...shall we just say annoy?...me into leaving before.  I will not allow the
Commission to get to me again.  I will not allow my anger to make me abandon what is
mine.  No.  What is OURS, again.  You have my oath on this.  Now I ask you, will you
still serve me?  I will understand if you wish to leave.  Any who do I will grant you
enough money that you need not worry for yourself or your family again.  So, will you
stand with me?"
     As one the four warriors step forward and declare, "We are the Lord High
Commander Azrael's forever. We  live but to serve.  Our life for your life."
     "And my life for yours," Azrael replied formally.  "Now come to the briefing
room, we have plans to make."

                              The Ring of Crowned Kings

     Cosmo sunk deeper into the leather chair and continued to casually expel smoke
rings into the mahogany paneled room.  He savored the after taste from what he
thought must be one of the finest Andorian Cigars he had ever purchased in blood.
Searching for a clue he replayed the chain of events leading up to this evening's
slaughter in his mind.  He wondered how they could have so conveniently lined most of
their forces along the exact wall he and his Imperial Guards would attack.  Cosmo
quickly snapped from his brooding when the spindly kobold scampered into the room,
leaping off of furniture and vaulting through rafters.  !ll.kid.k abandoned the time
worn tome and looked up with a smile as the creature slid to a stop and leapt onto 
the table before him.
     "Ah, Gakkin, my dependable friend," cheered !ll.kid.k with arms in the air.
     A toothy grin spread across the kobold's face.  He shook a fist in the air while
jumping up and down in a dance of triumph.  The kobold stretched his closed fist out
toward !ll.kid.k, "For you, my liege!"  !ll.kid.k beamed at the kobold, plucked the
thick silver ring from his tiny hand, and then gave him a gentle pat on the head.
     !ll.kid.k nodded, "Excellent work as usual, Gakkin.  You shall soon be rewarded
for your hard work!"  !ll.kid.k briefly examined the archaic markings on the ring and
then went back to pouring over the tattered codex he had previously dismissed.
     Cosmo stood, tossed back his shot of bourbon, returned the cigar the corner of
his mouth then verified, "Is it authentic?"
     Keeping his eyes on his work !ll.kid.k replied, "Yar, it would appear our plan
was executed flawlessly.  That is if Angus returns uncompromised."
     "Compromised?  I thought you gentlemen had more faith in my talents than to
believe that any so called 'noble' Andorian swine could outwit me," sneered Angus as
he and his guards filed into the great hall.  "I will admit that our plan was not
fool proof due to the presence of a most unexpected and equally unbeknownst mage.
However, I must say my charade was rather convincing and their curiosity was satiated
once I fed them one additional morsel of information."
     "That's it," declared Cosmo as realization washed over him.  "That is why they
stacked the southern wall with their most fierce troops!  I knew my guard and I
slipped in undetected!  Dammit, Angus, we had to slaughter an entire battalion and we
almost lost good men in the shield wall!"
     "Bah, Cosmo, there was no doubt that an Imperial Guard as proficient in killing
as yours would be overwhelmingly successful.  Why do you think your guard was chosen
for this leg of the mission," countered Angus, knowing that Cosmo would be soothed by
the compliment.  "I take it we were able to recover the artifact?"
     "Yar, it has been authenticated and it's almost ready for attunement and then
the extraction.  We were waiting for your controversial arrival and for Polarius to
stop playing with his toy soldiers over there," snickered !ll.kid.k.
     "Well, when my ingenious stratagem allows us to claim the Village of Idiots...
err...Tobir you will no longer refer to them as toys," retorted Polarius as he waved
a hand over the miniature battle map.  Polarius reached into a pocket of his brown
leather long cloak and produced a thick, short fork.  !ll.kid.k accepted the fork and
the Warlords gathered around a rune covered, obsidian table that stood in the dead
center of the great hall.
     The table was approximately four feet tall and six feet in diameter.  It was
covered in intricate runes carved deeply and with flawless precision.  The runes
seemed to be drawn from the table's center and marched outward to its edges.  The
center piece was about six inches in diameter and formed a perfect cone.  !ll.kid.k
struck the ring with the tuning fork, held it to his ear and listened intently for a
long moment.  Obviously not satisfied with his examination he struck the ring a
second time, waited for the overtones to die out, then held it to his ear a second
time.  Satisfied with his analysis he handed the ring and fork to Polarius.  Polarius
struck the ring, paused, and then waved the fork hastily past his ear and nodded.
     !ll.kid.k raised an inquisitive eyebrow at Polarius, "Are you certain?"
     Polarius donned his trademark grin of sarcasm, "Are you being dismissive of my
tuning abilities?"
     "Bah, enough with your puerile taunts.  I have the utmost respect for your
abilities and now that we have a better idea of its magical properties let's begin
the extraction.  Gakkin, my friend, it is time for your reward."  !ll.kid.k waved the
impish creature over,  "Come, friend, bring a stool and place a steady hand flat on
the table."  The Warlords and the kobold all placed one palm flat on the table while
facing the other palm toward the center cone.  !ll.kid.k stood the ring on the cone's
apex and it immediately began to spin backwards while simultaneously twisting counter
clockwise.  Each man pushed his eyelids tighter together as the ring spun and twisted
faster and faster.  Magic began to visibly arc off the ring and course down the deep
trenches of table's runes after several minutes of intense channeling.  The kobold
flinched as he began to feel a sharp tingling sensation in his palm, next his chest,
and then throughout his veins.  The Warlords were all in a trance-like state as the
extraction process continued for little over an hour.  Sweat drenched them, their
temperatures spiked, their nociceptors fired, their heads pounded, and their hearts
raced as the magic surged through them.  Finally the ring slowed to a stop, fell from
the table's point, rolled around a few times like a roulette piece then teetered into
     Polarius wiped the sweat from his brow, slapped three astrums down on the table
and thanked it with a wink and a smile.  Finally he snagged the ring from the
obsidian slab and struck it with the fork one last time.  "It would appear we've
extracted a majority of the ring's power.  It is still an extremely potent artifact,
although, its yield has been significantly diminished."
     "Did the inhibitors properly amalgamate," inquired Angus with concern stitched
across his sweat soaked brow.
     "Aye, they did.  As did all our other special ingredients," snickered Polarius
     "What should we do with it now," asked Cosmo as he tapped the ash off his
pungent cigar.
     "Put it back in play," proclaimed !ll.kid.k knowingly.
     "Hmm.." Cosmo perplexed, "what is its current capacity?"
     "Its primary properties are still intact but at a much lower potential.  The
Ring of Crowned Kings is largely known for its ability to amass a grand army on 
behalf of its possessor.  Considering the current state of Jhans I think it's only
fitting that we give back to the arena during her grave time of need."  A roguish
smile dashed across !ll.kid.k's face, "Besides, we've respun the ring with some
interesting snares." !ll.kid.k nodded to Gakkin who looked emboldened with power and
new found knowledge, "Dispatch the criers, old friend."
     "Yes, my liege," complied the creature with crisp articulation and radiating
confidence. As Polarius flipped the ring into the air the kobold leapt into the
rafters, deftly caught the ring behind his back, bowed to the Warlords and bolted
from the great hall.

                                   A New Tradition

     The hand bell rung out across the town square, bringing the day's mundane hustle
and bustle to an abrupt halt.  The man in the red robe and black breeches fought his
way to the usual spot in front of the fountain.  Tradesmen hocking wares slowly
trailed off into hushed tones as the man slipped the bell into his pocket.  He
plucked his tricorne off his head, smoothed his hair back and unfurled the scroll.
     "Oyez, Oyez!  From this day forth a new tradition will stand within these city
walls.  The men known as DOOMcorps have brought Jhans a treasure that many believed
was a mere wives' tale.  The Warlords have ordered that this treasure should not sit
neglected among dust and cobwebs.  They have demanded that this treasure not be
locked away for only the greedy monks to behold.  Their adjudication is to freely
offer the Ring of Crowned Kings to any man willing to give his life for it on the
killing floor of Jhans!  The rules are simple; to possess it you must FIGHT for it!"

                                      The Rules

     Winning:  To capture the R.O.C.K. you must possess it upon getting your
invitation to the Isle and you must successfully defend the R.O.C.K. for at least one
turn prior to leaving for the Isle.
     Turnovers:  Dark Arena losses, losses to stand-ins, tournament deaths,
successful captures, and inactivity will cause the R.O.C.K. to drop to the lowest
ranked warrior in the arena that turn.
     Foul Shots:  Ahh, treachery abound!  It wouldn't be a DOOMcorps event without a
little something for the haters!  We present to you the ultimate denial:  Any
graduating warrior that strips the R.O.C.K. from a defender on their last turn in the
arena is not eligible to defend and capture the R.O.C.K.  Therefore, the R.O.C.K.
drops to the lowest ranked warrior in the arena that turn.
     Scorekeeping:  DOOMcorps will actively monitor the progress of the R.O.C.K. but
we will not inform the arena of its status on a turn by turn basis.  We will keep a
running list of who held the R.O.C.K. each turn for historical purposes on our
website.  However, both methods of tracking are done at our leisure.  If you want the
R.O.C.K. it's your job to know who currently possess it.
     Laying Claim: It is your right to claim your fortunes along with your fame upon
successfully capturing the R.O.C.K.  When we say it's your right we actually mean
it's your duty.  DOOMcorps will not proactively chase you down to award you with your
prize.  After capturing the R.O.C.K. you have until the duedate of the next turn to
claim your prize via the Jhans PA's or the DOOMcorps.com Forums.  There will be no
exceptions to this rule and the methods previously mentioned are publicly viewable
with timestamps.
     Prizes:  The legend foretells that he who possesses the Ring of Crowned Kings
will amass a grand army.  DOOMcorps was able to translate the legend into more
technical terms and it seems that a grand army equates to 20 team roll ups.  Give or
take a few depending on whether any of them have double 21's or our opinion of you!
What other arena actually pays you back for kicking ass?  Wanna be a R.O.C.K. Star?
It's easy; all you have to do is pick it up and take it to the hizzy!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a 
look at BABES, who went down to 3rd from 10th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a 
solid 3-1-1 outing, THE FALLEN has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was THE CRAFT's PRINCE OF LIES, 
who was turned away from the Duelmastership by OBSIDIAN.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid THE FALLEN, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does JHANS really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  THE FALLEN + Weapons That go 
Boom = LEGENDARY BASTARDS + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
HURLEY OAKJAW, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by 
a 'touched' warrior, FORMEL went after CHINGO BLING, who was higher by 20 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, FORMEL won victory over CHINGO BLING.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This round goes to VOW TO DESTROY, their 9-5-2 warrior, 
OBSIDIAN slew the 8-2-0 PRINCE OF LIES.  Stay tuned next week to see what happens.  
Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and 
see what happens.   
     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

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!

     A.  Announce the alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM
         47) newsletter.
Captains are responsible for:
     a.  verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their alliance;
     b.  distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
Managers must:
     a.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Gift Certificate to participate to:

          Elkton, MD 21921
     b.  Announce their intent to compete with manager name, team name and alliance
         they will be fighting under in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
     1.  No scoring will begin until a Gift Cert is received.  No exceptions.

     5.  The turn  a declaration and verification will begin the scoring process.
     6.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 10 of the Turf

Special Scoring:
     a.  Each mention in the Spy Report is worth 2 points (team mentions only!)
     b.  Each Style Master is worth 2 points.

     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!)
     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.

     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
     i.  Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5.
     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!
