Ibizond, Korga, and in between:

     Fist of Kjarran strode briskly along the road that ran east from Ibizond.  It
would eventually reach Malcorn and then Zuwayza, but that was several days away even
if nothing came of this effort to catch the killer.  What kind of man, he wondered
would haunt a lonely stretch of road and kill only single travelers after dark?  A
coward, for one thing.  But it might be useful to consider the other factors; after
all, the ambush ahead that was supposed to catch the killer might fail.  He could end
up fighting alone.  His hand caressed the hilt of his sword.  And he'd do very well
by himself, if he had to.
     The Murskan, Cadal, believed the killer was a non-human monster of some sort,
perhaps a demon.  It would be a feather in his cap to kill a demon....  But he had to
remember that he wasn't out here for glory, even when the glory would honor mighty
Kjarran, and his daughter Jayde, too, of course.  He was here to rid the area of a
killer.  He peered sharply into the trees on either side of the road.  Though the sun
had not yet vanished behind the western hills, the woods were already filled with
shadow.  Anything could be hiding there.
     In fact, Aghtamar, Zilla, and Cadal were hiding there, somewhere a little
farther ahead.  No human would detect them, Fist believed.  Cadal might be a semi-
barbarian, as all the Murskans were, and a second-rate gladiator (for a Lord
Protector), but he knew what he was doing in the woods.  Fist sighed and shook his
head.  What the Murskans should be doing in the woods was cutting down the trees and
planting beans.  Oh, well.  Doubtless that would come in time, as they absorbed
civilization from their more enlightened neighbor, the Glorious Empire.
     Meanwhile, there was the killer.  The sun was balanced on the rim of the hills,
and the shadows were stretching out of the forest and across the road.  It was time 
for the killer to appear.
     As though his thought had conjured the sound, he heard hoofs on the road ahead
of him.  No one had mentioned the killer being mounted.  Could this be a chance
victim?  Some unfortunate traveler from the east who didn't know the risk he was
taking?  The rider was still out of sight, as the road ahead curving and slanting
into a valley dark with trees.  That valley would be a good place for the killer to
set his ambush....  Or for Cadal to set his!  Fist had a sudden vision of the killer
and the gladiators facing each other across the road, waiting for a victim to walk
into their trap.  He resisted the urge to laugh; after all, it could be true!  He
also resisted the urge to break into a run, which would tire out him right when he
might be needing his full strength.
     Somewhere ahead, but farther away than the horseman, a hound bayed, answered by
two more.  At least, Fist of Kjarran was fairly sure they were hounds, and not
wolves.  But it was enough to make anyone's blood run cold, and that alone might have
scared a timid traveler to death.  And who would be hunting with hounds along this
road at night?  Fist wasn't a country boy, but something seemed out of step in this.
Maybe the killer used the hounds to terrify his victims?  In any case, the horsemen
in the valley was in danger.
     Fist paused to listen.  He had lost track of the hoofbeats when he'd heard the
baying, but now he picked them up again.  They were faster-paced, but...they didn't
seem to be getting any closer.  He shuddered in sympathy for the rider as he hurried
ahead.  It must be like one of those nightmares where you run and run and can't
escape.
     Darkness filled the little valley like a pool of water.  Fist had the
unreasonable feeling that he should hold his breath as he descended.  There was a
thin wail from below, then shouts and the clangor of swords.  He broke into a trot.
Some other traveler must have drawn the killer and sprung the ambush before he got
there!
     At the bottom of the valley, the road crossed a stream.  The woods were broken
there so that some moonlight came down onto the bridge and the struggle going on
there.  Swords flickered in reflected moonlight, and shadows surged back and forth.
Fist drew his sword.  One shadow detached itself from the struggle.  It was
silhouetted briefly against the white foam of the stream: a gigantic hound, black as
hate except for crimson ears and eyes that burned like fire.  It bayed as it raced
along the road toward Fist of Kjarran.
     Fist shuddered.  You didn't have to be timid for that sound and sight to freeze
your blood!  But he was a gladiator, a Lord Protector, a faithful follower of Kjarran
and Jayde.  No dog was going to intimidate him.  He steadied his sword to receive the
charge.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, JURIM'S TEAM, since THE 
FAMILY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  KORGAN CRUSADE 
turned their 4-0-0 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, WIDOWMAKERS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see FLESHRENDER win a fight and gain 14 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FLESHRENDER beat SKYWISE and SKYWISE lost 11 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  SUNGOD DESIGNED ME Bloodfeuded TREESTUMP for VEASTIAN's 
Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, 
VEASTIAN may be getting bland, as SUNGOD DESIGNED ME stays top dog in the city.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  VEASTIAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
WOLF RIDERS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
WENSINWASIN.  Ha ha ha ha!  TREESTUMP was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  A big yahoo goes out to SUNGOD DESIGNED ME this turn, 
for revenging WENSINWASIN's bloodfeud against WOLF RIDERS' warrior TREESTUMP.  Heh, 
heh, heh.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up 
with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Sun God Designed Me -- I hope you're ready for a better prepared challenge. -- Carter

Wensinwasin -- Hope you're not mad at me.  Sometimes I don't know my own strength.
Ah ooooh! -- Treestump

All -- I am Dr. Guts.  Some of you may remember me from long.  Well, my pack is back
and on the hunt.  Two kills this round and more to come. -- Wolf Riders

Swordbreaker -- I had to win, because I can't afford to have my sword broken.  Don
John always made us pay for the replacements himself, and he says that Jorja is going
to be just as, er, strict about it. -- Nhavarl

Bil Balrogg -- Touche! -- Carline
P.S.  Try not to parry with your head.  This is generally a bad move.

P.S.  It's a secret family gift.

Sephiroth -- I'm only writing to you because I've got orders.  Normally I wouldn't
bother to write a personal to a golem.  But thanks for losing to me. -- Tiro Cuckoo

Winter Witch -- Oh, why?  Couldn't we be friends and bring icy beauty to all? --
Carline, taken with the image

Soultender -- On behalf of all big, dumb lummoxes everywhere, I urge you to give a
size 20 or 21 warrior a second chance.  We're not ALL worthless. -- Stiltz
P.S.  Just those of us who are bashers.

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

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 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.
