                             Notes from the arena champ.

I gotta tell ya, this sitting on the throne deal beats the crap outta being dead.

A perfect record since my resurrection, a couple ratings and some tourney popularity
since Suave decided to dig up my casket--I really can't complain.  Sure, some of
these superhot days, I still smell a little formaldehyde-y, but it's a living.
Y'know, since I'm alive and all.  It's nice.

Welcome to Rodeki, Duh-What?  I'd say more, but I'm guessing my response is already
in your name.  Way of the Sword, I think Suave actually met you at the tourney in
Philly.  Tripwire, was it?  Hmm.  Doubt I'll get to see any of your guys before I
split.  I expect a steady diet of NPCs and the Bumper until I graduate.  According to
my standards, that means I have six more turns atop this arena.  'Course, Suave just
had a striker get sucked out of Talcama without 14 wins.  I wonder what the
Commission thinks is good enough these days.  It's weird, them lowering their
standards.  AD gets harder and they LOWER the criteria?  I don't get it.

Again, speaking as someone who's already spent more than his fair share o' nights
around Aringhol's campfire, I look forward to this immortality deal.  Snappy, if you
want to continue Suave's utter dominance of this arena, you'd better get up here
quickly.

Remember: they call them your "insides" because they're supposed to stay inside you.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  FULL METAL JACKET had cause to celebrate, after ALABAMA BLACKSNAKE got 
21 points by beating BUTCH.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, LIMPY 
TWO-SCREWS was winsome, after beating BIA THE ITCH and seeing her lose 9 points.  
RUBBER BUMPER found out that RODEKI isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to 
be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of WAY OF THE SWORD A3, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, CLOWNING AROUND scurried away from WAY OF 
THE SWORD A3.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and SNAPPY 
GEORGE is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't COLOR ME SUAVE proud!  
SNAPPY GEORGE found himself challenged by a warrior 19 below:  BOZO.  BOZO of 
CLOWNING AROUND kept his wits as he was beat by SNAPPY GEORGE.  Mismatched by 13 
points, SPIKE was subdued by FUZZY BUZZCUT.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought 
FUZZY BUZZCUT showed great skill and promise when it overcame SPIKE.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  The manager at FULL METAL JACKET must have some new strategy for sending 
ESKIMO PIE, a warrior with 2-0-0, to the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  Questions 
are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in RODEKI would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid RODEKI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

El Rippoff -- I thought my best bet was to take your moves and make them mine without
letting you take my moves and make them yours.  The whole learning curve and all....
Shame I couldn't move Yankee Dan. -- Snappy George

Yankee Dan -- Let's see how I do when I'm the one who sees the fight coming. --
George

Harby -- I love the lessons your warriors teach mine; that's why I keep challenging
away. -- Suave

Bozo -- When do you and me get to go at it?  I just moved up into the Heavyweight
division with my last CN train.  Bring what you got. -- Fuzzy Buzzcut

Duh-What? -- I don't know that I've ever seen anything like that.  You might say you
came into the arena like a storm, destroying every NPC you faced and bringing the
arena to it's knees (laughing). -- Assurnasirbanipal

They think they can kill a clown?  Little do they know us clowns are larger than
life.  You can't keep a good clown down, even if the actor inside passes on! --
Assur, for Ronald McDonald

Awfully lonely here.  I can only imagine what it feels like to be ranked even higher!
-- Yankee Dan

El Rippoff -- I know my act is the greatest, but you are one tough customer.  Lighten
up and smile once in awhile.  That'd be a start, anyway. -- Bozo

Rodeki -- We're not leaving this fine place.  Our act, while not bringing in the big
bucks, has not gone unnoticed and Rodeki has been most supportive of our efforts.
But we're taking a short sabbatical while we engineer some new tricks, skits, and
funnies.  When we return, you'll be laughing even harder. -- Clowning Around
management (aka Assur)

Areris -- (sigh)  I keep having days like this, and I hate it, but can I get a
strategy change out of my manager?  Not much.  Good work on your part, though.  'Bout
what I expected. -- John Rose

Ostman -- I expected you to learn more.  Tourney experience?  Well, whatever, a bold
try. -- Ann Artichoke

Souple?  You Shews have odd names. -- Sushee Su

Cookie Snort -- Aha!  One of the Delvers fights a warrior who is NOT concerned about
the ways of the swords.  Good, even though the Bumper lost.  But then, you couldn't
really say the Bumper "fought," could you? -- Harby

Bozo -- Clowning around on the sands is a "no-no," too. -- El Rippoff
P.S.  Of course, against someone like me, you had no choice but to lose.

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.

     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!

1 August 2003
     Assurnasirbanipal invites you to Talcama to participate in the third BATTLE
ROYAL contest.  It is a Delarquan contest so brutal that even some of Talcama's most
notable managers will refuse to participate.  The rules are simpler than any other
contest:  You may not avoid any other contest team.  There are no silly rules for who
can and can't compete.  Any team in Talcama is eligible to compete.  The scoring is
also quite simple (+1 for a win, +1 for a kill (+1 for the win), -1 for a loss) and
the first team to reach 25 points is the winner.
     Scoring will be live--the results for the turn posted in the newsletter.  The
winner will be able to fight their contest team in Talcama for free for 6 months but
more importantly will win a contest against some of the best managers who play the
game in one of the hardest contests in the game.
     First turn for BATTLE ROYAL 3 is Talcama Turn 465, which is due August 30.
