                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am the Duelmaster of Rodeki?!?  Thanks, Crix!  And Sushee Su right below me?
My favorite opponent of all time!  Let's go, Sushee, and see which of us deserves the
throne next time out.  Assur loves me.  The kids love me.  Life is good!  And it
looks like Ronald is gonna be back this turn, making our act complete!  Apparently,
he defied all the odds and returns from the tournament as a Victor!  I thought we
were just supposed to bring smiles to the fans' faces....


                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Advancing in the rankings was CLOWNING AROUND who went from last 
turn's 53-40-1, to this week's record of 56-40-1.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  SUSHEE SU was beat by CRIX BREMOORE and drops 9 points.  
Our battling duelmaster BOZO has managed to hold the title, fending off VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, RODEKI.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid COLOR ME SUAVE, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does RODEKI really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  COLOR ME SUAVE + Weapons That 
go Boom = FLAGG'S FIVE + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
SUSHEE SU, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, RONALD MCDONALD went after JOHN ROSE, who was higher by 18 points. 
Well, when the dust settled, RONALD MCDONALD overcame JOHN ROSE.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in RODEKI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it 
(boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Kristine -- You may own me, but I needed to prove myself against you at least once!
One down, one to go. -- Red S.

Dr. Hook -- I'm sure you know what that means... -- Red S.

Sushee Su -- We can celebrate the Duelmaster title at that fish place!  Sounds like a
great plan!  I don't even care which of us is celebrating! -- Bozo

The Mole -- Be glad you're not in range!  I'd love nothing more than to show you what
Tournament Victor means.  Instead, you've earned John Rose that dubious honor!  1 TV
challenge being served! -- Ronnie

Suave -- Not Frankenbutt!  Anything but that!  Please spare us all and get rid of him
and quick! -- Assur
P.S.  How long did that fiasco really last, anyway?  A couple turns?
P.P.S.  I really did like the renaming of Centerfolds, though.  I'm still laughing
about that one!

Rima Adler -- (with stunned admiration)  What a woman!  What a figure!  Gosh. --
Handsome Does
P.S.  Ouch.

George Stark -- You will, I hope, pardon my lack of patience.  I had other things to
do, and I just could NOT afford to spend half an hour, or it might have been an hour,
on the sands exchanging pleasantries, however pleasant those pleasantries might have
been.  Sorry. -- John Rose
P.S.  Congratulations on graduating.

Virtuos Vixen -- You doxy!  Ladying it over the rest of us because you're so
"virtuos"!  Ha!  As if!  Take that!  (slap, slap) -- Sushee Su the enraged
P.S.  Besides, you're too tall.  You can't be virtuos at six and a half feet tall.
It's against nature.
P.P.S.  For a woman, anyway.  I don't know about tall men.  I'll have to test some.

Miyagi's Miata -- You're suave?  (critical look)  It doesn't show. -- The Mole
P.S.  Besides, you made a rude remark about me being six feet tall and a Dwarf.  It's
prenatal influence.  My mother was frightened by a giraffe shortly before I was born.

Dr. Hook -- (very smugly)  You Orcs are just no good at something like this which
requires SKILL.  You're too musclebound, and your fangs make you drool.  Ha! --
Handsome Is

So!  Where is everyone ELSE'S personals, eh? -- Harby

                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.


     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS

All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct
and up to date.  Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your
updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com.  As you may guess, replace the
at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the

I have information on the following alliances:  ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada,

Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel.

If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know.  If you are a member of
some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know.  If you were at any point in your
past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know.
Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to
still be in the same alliance when they return.  Even having everyone in an alliance
go inactive doesn't change anything.  If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's
another thing you have to let me know....

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,
depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer
500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.
     On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a
Graduate will win 2 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of
     Additional Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Gift Cert Prizes:
     Five (5) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager whose warrior claims the
Duelmaster Throne on T-500.
     Two (2) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
as the highest Active Challenger Champion, Champion, Challenger Adept, Adept,
Challenger Initiate and Initiate on T-500.
     In the event that NO Duelmaster is seated upon the Duelmaster Throne on T-500
there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are
tied for recognition points at the Top of the Challenger Champions recognition
standings.  [Therefore, the Top CC will be awarded 3 Gift Certs instead of 2 for
being ranked as the highest CC on T-500].
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) graduate on

     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.
