                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It seems to be a sort of tradition in small arenas, to hold the title by beating
the Khalhums Dwarf.  Sometimes by losing to the Dwarf, but not me, not this time.

                                       Vahnzur

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VEASTIAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, TIRRAJ fought EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE and gained 16 points and contributed to THE FAMILY's 4-1-0.  TIRANIAN has lost 
to HANDOW, falling 3 points, while helping make THE FAMILY a 4-1-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and VAHNZUR remains VEASTIAN's top 
warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that VEASTIAN has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, VEASTIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VEASTIAN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
