     I wasn't planning on running this turn, but after reading Boss Mierda's
spotlight I knew that I had to.  It takes a big person to admit when they are wrong
and you did this.  Never let it be said that The Expatriate isn't able to admit when
he is wrong.  Boca Mierda, I was wrong in my judgement of you.  That said, I will not
apologize for my rant.  It was valid when I wrote it, and it isn't my fault it was
printed a turn late.
     Well, it seems like everyone has been keeping clean these last few turns.
Everyone except Obnoxious, who once again resorted to assaulting another manager with
a potty humor spotlight.  I'm sure that no one is surprised.  We all knew he was on
the level of a 12 year old.
     I will be gone for a turn or two (but not forever).  Anyone who wants me can
find me in Fratsfa.  Good luck in the Turf War one and all (yes even you, Obnoxious).

                                     Round Three

     Whoa doggies!  Another great turn, and...things are starting to get real hairy!
In case ya'll ain't figured it out...SCOMSS Swamp has got reason to be proud!!!  Not
only did Raven's Tarantella win a TC, but his Razor won a TV to boot!  So, everyone
better strap on up and get busy trying to take X-Syndicate down or else they're gonna
run away with the show!  But, just the same...I'd like to extend a hearty and
heartfelt *CONGRATULATIONS* to Raven for such a fine showing at the F2F (and since
the F2F results were printed this turn, Raven, I think you'll be happy to know I've
calculated those warrior's turns for this turn's scoring).
     Couple of clarifications I need to make, and then, I'll get on with the scores
for this turn:
1.  Master Darque...didn't calculate Bogbane's score last turn because I didn't know
    it was your warrior (no listing).  Thus, I saw it this turn...I entered the +1
    into your total score.
2.  Vendetta Cartel's scoring for last turn was all screwed up.  Read this...the
    typist made a slight error and I'm gonna correct it here:
**Vendetta Cartel/kat, Cpt.                    (88), (37)

   Fizban/Managerial Mayhem                    ( 0), ( 0)
3.  Impressario...your declaration for Medee is noted and scored.
4.  Expatriate...if there's an alliance who you'd like to declare for, and they will
    verify you, and you send me the entry fee (one RSI gift certificate), you can
    join in any time before T235.  You can also claim a champion if the warrior is
    in the Adepts or below columns.  You can also start your own alliance if you
    choose to.
     Okay...now let me get on with the scoring!

   Mr. Coffee -- I took three pts too many from your team last turn, so, true to my
   word....

     Well...see everyone next turn!  And, the reports are in the mail.  Sorry, no
checks!

     Surprise, surprise Bel thought this was all behind me, but as you can see...I'm
baaack!  No, not as the PETTY Rumor Monger that I've been called of late, but as a
serious and concerned reporter.
     This column is for you, Expatriate!  So hopefully your ego can be satisfied that
someone responded to you.   As you can tell from my last report, I have decided to be
less destructive to the area atmosphere. I also stated last print, that this column
was meant to be a joke.  (You know, HA! HA!)
     I do want to apologize for you not having any sense of humor, but if you want to
be the all-wise, nobody knows better than me Grandpa type, it's no wonder you have
named yourself the Expatriate.  I still totally agree with you, however, it would be
nice if you weren't such a self-righteous crusader.  Enjoy the game, state your
opinions and allow others to choose their own gaming style and choice of behavior.
It's their buck.  If you don't like it, use your experience to help the younger
managers in the game to see your point.  Diplo, etc....
     Well all, hopefully this will truly be my last report.  But on a final point,
enjoy the game we all love.  And regardless of likes and dislikes, respect others,
for we all have at least one thing in common...the love of this wonderful game.

     "Well!!!  Well!!! Wellllll!!!" Sir Chester yelled as he walked into the guild
house of Draconic Realm.  "I see we had another fine day on the sands which cost us
points...I'm thankful that Silver & Timat have won their first fight."
     The "wos" spoke up.  "My fine manager...I'd like to say that my losing isn't all
my fault and that a wizard has some type of spell on me!"
     Sir Chester just looked at this "wos" and began to laugh.  "Yes, I have to agree
that a wizard has a spell on you and it's called 'a very stupid and a waste of a good
roll-up'... you "wos" really make me sick and I'll never in a million years take on
another one on any of my stables!"  Sir Chester stated!
     Chester continued to rant.  "In fact, I'll tell you what I will do if you do not
start winning and you can take it for what it is worth.  I'll send you to the dark
arena....  Yes!!!!  I'll send you and that other "wos" to the dark arena if you two
do not get your act together and get with the program!  Do I make myself clear???  If
you think I'm joking, keep at it and I'll show you that I am not!!!"  He then walked
out.
     Both the "wos" looked at each other and knew that Sir Chester was not joking!
They knew that it was just a matter of time before they were sent to the ring to
fight by fire light.  They knew that Chester did not like "wos" in the first
place...couldn't stand the sight of any of them...not at all!
     One "wos" spoke to the other, "Well it was nice knowing you and may the gods be
with you when your time comes to be sent to fight by fire!"
                                  * * * * * * * * *
     Meanwhile sitting in the nasty Broken Dagger Inn sat Baphomet with an hooligan
also known as Suiside.  They were having a little chit-chat concerning their latest
duels and misdeeds on the sands.  Suiside stated, "That darn Sir Chester is really
hurting our total point standings in this contest or TW#4  and I for one do not
appreciate it one bit, the man has been a manager for about four years and still
doing what he has always has done...being defeated by one and all!!!!
     Baphomet blurted, "I know what you are stating is true, but with some styles of
fighters Sir Chester does very well with.  The man can talk to lungers and after that
talk...the lungers will do whatever he says and go out there and destroy scum and
others.  So, ease up on your attack on the old boy...well...look at what you have
done." he said with a chuckle.
     Suiside thought about what the dirty Baphomet had said for a moment then spoke.
"I suppose you could be right for once in you life, so I'll give Mr. Chester a few
more turns to see how he rebounds then...if he does any better...I'll be a little
more or less impressed, but like I said, crap walks and winds talk!"
     Baphomet just chuckled as Suicide walked out of the Inn.
     In walked Sir Chester who sat near Baphomet, they began to speak of TW#4 and all
its ups and downs.  Baphomet ask, "What is going on with your two 'wos'?"
     "Well, if you ask me...I'd say they need a good "fight by fire light" and that's
that with that!"
     Baphomet responded with, "You have two nice "wos" but, they keep taking "L's"
and I may be able to help?"
     Sir Chester gave ol-Baphomet a baffled look, then spoke.  "I'll let you know
after the next fight.  After the upcoming tourney you may not see any of my stables
fight for some time."
     Sir Chester got up and walked out with out hearing another word from Ol-
Baphomet.
                                  * * * * * * * * *
     Back at the Draconic Realm guild house...the four gladiators sat around talking
while Sir Chester was out....  The champion "wos" spoke, "I think that our manager
will pull me out or the arena very soon so that I may practice for the up-coming
tourney...and I think I have one more fight before he sits me down for a while."
     Timat started laughing and said, "You are very lucky just to be sitting here,
alive and well...you scumbag "wos"...you already know that if you do not do well at
the next tourney...YOU ARE HISTORY!"
     "Yes, you'll be thrown out like old baggage!" stated Silver.
     The 'wos' spoke.  "Sir Chester just sent another one of our stable to meet his
fate and I'm in fear that I'll be next.  After all, Chester has already told me to my
very face that he would do so if I did not do well and do it soon.  I pray to my gods
that Chester is very pleased with the new gladiator that will show up very soon.
Yes, we may have a new stable member joining us real soon and I hope Sir Chester is
pleased with him/her/it.  Maybe that'll buy me a little more time???"
     "It's just baffling...just baffling to sit here and listen to the three of you
talking of such crap...whimpering that you might be sent to the dark arena etc...
etc!!" Silver stated with a grin.
     "Braaaaahaaahaaahaaahaa...why don't you shut your bagpipes...at least I have
backbone enough to keep trying even when I lose week after week!" the 'wos' stated.
     Timat stood up and said, "Let's just cut out the radical hate that you 'wos'
carry around at all times.  You have to admit...'wos' are a pretty sorry bunch and
everyone knows this.  Why not just shut up and try something new for a change?"
     "Yes, you 'wos' are the sewer of the arena and that's all there is to it.
That's why I look forward to the day when Chester puts your behind to the test and
sends you to your fate," Silver stated.
     The 'wos' stood and shouted, "This is nothing but a case of racism.  You lungers
have never liked us 'wos' and that is why you are being so radical towards me and my
brother.  You two are not going to talk Sir Chester into sending me and my brother to
the dark arena and I'll make sure of that!"
    The lungers shouted, "Let's be realistic about this whole matter.  You must
realize that Sir Chester bought this draconic Realm from another manager a long time
ago...so do not think that Sir Chester is the one who created you two sorry ravishing
scums in the first place and will have no problem getting rid of you!  Keep that in
mind as you fall asleep, you no good scumbags!"
     They heard Sir Chester enter the guildhouse and became quiet at once.
                         ***     ***     ***     ***     ***
     Meanwhile, in Suiside's guildhouse he and his stable were considering joining
the priesthood and give up fighting all together.  What a thing to consider.  WOW!
     Meanwhile, back in Baphomet's guildhouse, he and his stable were sitting around
a nice warm meal making plans for their next go on the sands and hoping for another
4-1-0 turn.  WOW!!!  The thought of a 4-1-0 turn really is nice.

                                  *Heathen's Cafe*

     Heathen's questions regarding Damage Ratings was interesting, and one I'm highly
opinionated about.  I don't have any evidence to back my assumptions up, but what I
do have is experience with other RPGs at the time the program was written for DM
(it's never gonna be Duel II to me!).  Let me explain.
     In my opinion, Damage Ratings on a Warrior's Overview is merely an indication of
the level of modifier for damage a warrior will be receiving.  I don't believe it's a
die roll.  Why?  Because most of the RPGs going at the time on inception of DM, they
were using Strength levels as a means to determine a bonus to Damage and applying the
modifier to weapon damage rolls.  Since the DM game was created around 1984, then my
assumptions stand to reason.
     I'm assuming that when the subroutine was written for Damage, it was assigned a
hard number for each Rating.  I would take a wild guess at something like:

-1 = Little Damage
0  =  Normal Damage
+1 =  Good Damage
+2 =  Great Damage
+3 = Tremendous Damage
+4 = Awesome Damage
+4 = Devastating Damage

     And of course...this is only a guess.  They could be smaller or greater.  I
haven't gotten into this yet...I'm still working on some other things.  Once they're
completed and verified, then I'll get into this.
     Which is more important...Damage Rating or Favorite Weapon and Skill levels?
Why Heathen, my friend...that's a no-brainer.  Favorite Weapon gives the warrior
bonuses to his skills and are what actually, in my opinion, determine the outcome of
the fight.  You can hit as hard as you want...but if you can't hit the broadside of
an arena wall with a Halberd...what good is it to have Devastating Damage?
     Well, there you have my ideas.  I could deeper into this...but...don't want to
overstay my welcome...Nice cup of Java too.  None of that sissy stuff.  Just
straight...black...and robust.  Make the spoon stand up in the middle of it...that's
the way I like it.  Of course, a little sweetener from time to time, ya know?  Kinda
how I like my women...dark and sweet.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SCOMSS SWAMP needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  THINGS I DROOL 
IN had like a really albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 3-2-0 and wound up as 11th 
team!  I couldn't believe it.  Did MISNOMERS really go up by 18?  If only those guys 
didn't have so may missing teeth...  Gross!  CHAOTIX BEASTS had like a really 
albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 3-2-0 and wound up as 17th team!  I couldn't 
believe it.  Did MYSTIC ORC FEAST really go up by 24?  If only those guys didn't have 
so may missing teeth...  Gross!  See if I even talk to any of those losers in DARQUE 
FORCES again!  Didja see where they got 1-4-0?  Somebody musta won a lotta fights!  
Wanna hear about a real loser?  Listen to this--ROYAL FLUSH got 1-4-0 and dropped 24. 
Didn't see much of them after the fights!  Really, just how far can one team drop in 
one round?  COFFEE RULES! dropped 12, which I think's more than all the other teams 
combined!  Wanna hear about a real loser?  Listen to this--NATURAL B. KILLERS 2 got 
1-4-0 and dropped 11.  Didn't see much of them after the fights!  What was the name 
of that team who got 3-1-0 this turn for a total 15-15-2 you ask?  (Sure)  SALEM'S 
LOT's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for JABBERWOCK?  FREEDONIA's 
proud of him after beating TOTO and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
JACK MCFARLAND's match with CYRUS THE GREAT cost it a loss of 16 points!  SARA F. 
thinks hers 10-3-1 and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  
Any bets?  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think KALYPSO should 
let SARA F. be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top 
team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters 
for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  SKELETON KEY 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 96-90-4 record really that scary?  I don't know what 
DOK SIK KILLAS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
SKELETON KEY, that's fer sher.  Can DOK SIK KILLAS' DIPTHERIA be more popular than 
me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  Some fights are 
really unfair.  How do you think JEALOUSY RAINS feels about being challenged by 
RAZOR, 16 points above her?  RAZOR beat JEALOUSY RAINS.  No surprise about that.  
Really I'm not surprised RAZOR would do such a scummy thing, either.  Speaking of 
challenging 27 points above did you hear about SIR GALAHAD of KNIGHTS TEMPLAR vs. 
FEATHERS FLYIN''s MINOR BLUE?  (And how was that intro!) Do you think SIR GALAHAD 
knew something before he challenged MINOR BLUE?  He got a win and 23 points.  What 
will the guy do next?  Ooh!  Did BENDER really know what it was doing when it 
challenged WHITE SETTLER?  A 8-0-1 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't know 
what it means.) BENDER was so studly out there in the sands!  Beating WHITE SETTLER 
and getting 19 points.  ADULT SWIM must be proud, for sure!  See if I ever talk to 
BODAK again!  HALLE BEARY was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  If BODAK can't 
beat a warrior 17 points below himself, that he CHALLENGED, he oughtta be selling 
food in the stands!  SHORTEST STRAW is being unfair.  He's challenged down 18 against 
LETHAL.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) I was 
sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in SCOMSS SWAMP.  SHORTEST STRAW got 2 points 
after beating LETHAL, 18 points below him.  I'm not so sure PAM D MONIUM knew all the 
facts when she challenged BEAR SKINRUG of THE BEAR'S PAW.  I saw PAM D MONIUM 
stumbling and dribbling at The Dripping Blade last week...  Like, was that some 
fighting on PAM D MONIUM's part, or what?  And she got 20 points out of it!  (besides 
getting in my report)  Poor BEAR SKINRUG.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this gal???  GREGOLA gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles 
WURM KIN, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet LIFE'S LESSONS manager is surprised!  
What a bummer!  BODAK got wasted by HALLE BEARY!  But with a 5-4-1, I guess CHAOTIX 
BEASTS aren't too bummed.  MARILITH really fought hard against DAMIEN BANESON.  
That'll teach BLEAK LEGION not to go and kill any of BAATANAR' RITEZU's guys again, 
huh!  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (DEMONIC HEX vs. ORC PLAGUE, that is.) 
MORWHEN bloodfeuded (is that a word?) ETIENNE DUPLAIX for revenge over some guy's bad 
fortune.  Was it really worth it?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would 
like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Abraxis -- You must never grow tired of being wrong because you are so often.  If you
would bother to read the newsletters (or have them read to you), you will notice that
I have fought every turn of the Turf War. -- Master Darque
P.S.  No, I can't give up on these guys like I did you.  After all, they won't pansy
out and whine like a serving wench.

Oz -- The only significance to my "0" is the fact that I have an extremely hard time
running in slow arenas.  The due dates I just can't grasp for some reason!  It is
Tripwire's fault, he didn't remind more than twice!  ;)  Eventually, I will make my
presence known! -- Ultraist, Iron Council

Baphomet -- I believe that higher damage enhances breaking through parries--not
dodges, mind you. -- Oz The All-Intrigued

Swamp Lily Hammer -- Surely you didn't believe that your highly skilled, undefeated
self was going to walk right in with a challenge and take home some Illuminati
points?  Welcome to the real world, and thank you for the extra points!  Scrooge
lives! -- Humbug (no "bah" today)

Kalypso -- Congratulations on the well-deserved title. -- Hourglass

Minor Blue -- I'm just a poor little long lost doggie.  How could you do that to me,
after all I've had to put up with like witches and cyclones and poppies and lions and
scarecrows and other fearful things! -- Toto

Devout Christian -- Nothing personal, but we answer only to Mother Nature.  (And Oz.)
-- Fighting Tree

Sister Mary Clarence -- Did you really challenge and kill Zombie Knight?  You cad!
Perhaps you can show my warriors how that works? -- Oz The All-Amazed

Toker -- Lady Fern and Crip are pleased to be in the Fratsfa competition.  Slugbait
is soon on the way. -- Oz The All-Knowing

Azraelus -- You guys are just plain too good for me! -- Oz The All-Humble

Raven -- A TV and a TC!  Well done, and a great choice of a proxy!  You are THE force
to be reckoned with.  Salute! -- Oz The All-Envious

All -- Uh, ambidextrous, means, well, uh, it's a good thing! -- The Consortium Scribe

Raven & Tarantalla -- Way to go!  With your help we are so going to crush the rest of
the competition! -- Chaotix

Impresario -- Thanx for getting me set up and entered into Duel2 and the Turf War.  I
may not be much help to our side but I am having fun. -- Chaotix

The Expatriate (c) -- You got something against twelve year olds!?!  Potty humor
rocks!  I'll get you for knocking my hommies. -- Chaotix

Land Of Oz is pleased to announce a new turf War "Champion" , MAGIC WAND, who
replaces the graduated Hourglass--last event Champion.

Claugiyliamatar -- I guess the gods were with me yet again!  I seem to win that way
every time, got quite the willpower, don't I? -- Blackened

Wilson -- Justice it was!  It wasn't pretty, but it was effective.  I think I may
have found a chink in your armor.  Expect Blackened this turn -- Tripwire

Abraxis -- I guess you consider yourself a cunning linguist don't you?  Que es su
papa?  Mi es su papa. -- Azrael

Baatanar'ritezu -- Apologies for the untimely death, but 21 Wit Bashers are a bit of
an oxymoron and shouldn't be allowed. -- Royal Flush

North Fork -- Further apologies for not being active in the newsletter of late, but
changing jobs and moving have resulted in a hectic lifestyle for the past 4 months.
I endeavour to maintain a more proactive "activity level" here in the personal ads
for the next while. -- Crip, mgr. of Royal Flush

Barbazu -- Seems you are scoring lots of points off of me, but I'll take the free
fight and popularity award in the meantime. -- Grade Ten

Gregola -- Sorry about the downchallenge, but there's no one besides alliance-mates
here to challenge up to. -- Ace Metric

Black Thunder -- 18 Minutes???  Is that all you've got?  We were just warming up. --
Jack & Jill

Cafi au Lait -- Hold on, you aren't supposed to get my hair all frazzled like that.
-- Don King

Caesar -- After seeing you in St. Lou, I knew that was going to be a tough matchup
from the outset.

Oz -- Final numbers were 47% W/L at the FtF.  Had you not been there, it would have
been around 44%, so for that, I thank you. -- Crip

Toker -- I'll try to start being a little more vocal in Fratsfa as well. -- Crip

Toto -- Way to turn it around, too bad I wasn't one of those one shot guys. -- Minor
Blue

Curseshock -- Surprised I made it through this one, even more surprised I won. --
B.B. Cross

Freman -- We'll have to try it again sometime. -- Finch

Detartrated -- Here's an old saying from Ali, keep the camera's moving cause I'm
kinda fast. -- R.I. Red

Timat II -- Don't be to concerned over all my wounds, should be healed up by the end
of the year. -- Stag

Oz -- Be a little time coming, but I'm back. -- Barnabas

Nuln -- Welcome to 47 my friend, look forward to having some fun! -- Barnabas

Heathen -- Got your diplo and then lost it.  Diplo back and let me know what charts
might help you and your address again and I'll try and help you out!  As for the
Mousetrap I've never seen it and have seen people ask for it before with no avail so
that likely won't happen.  I don't have the Enchiridion either, sorry! -- Street
Legal

Illuminati -- Brethren, firstly I apologize for my absence over the last two turns.
My personal life has been a bit chaotic with me getting organized and STILL moving
into a new place to live.  I also have a change of address for those wishing to
contact me (I am afraid I have lost many of your addresses in the move).  My new
address is Mike Bookout, 347 Phillips Chapel Rd, Empire, AL 35063.  I have not
ignored any of you I simply have been busy and lost contact info.  My apologies to
anyone who I might have offended in doing so.
     Second bit of business:  Good job on maintaining in second place in the turf
war!  The VC seems to be hot early on but I am quite confidant in their soon to be
cooling down phase.  Keep your eyes on the SCOMS and keep your challenges aimed at
picking up points (not necessarily picking on the other scoring leaders).  Don't get
me wrong, it's even better if you can bust Street's chops with a challenge so if you
can DO IT!!!  Just keep wracking up the points anywhere possible.  We're making a
good showing but a good showing is not what we came for.  We came to win and anything
less will be considered a failure.  Now carry on with business and remember...the
eyes of the world are upon you. -- Talon Darkhart, kLk God of War, Cap'n Illuminati
Team

Chester -- You are among those whose correspondence I lost.  Was good to hear from
you and hope you're doing well.  BTW, those three overviews you sent looked nice.
Now stop being so darn calm and be your chaotic self!  It's why we love ya, ya crazy
chap, you.... -- Talon Darkhart

Baphomet -- Since I know you were claiming cap'nship (as you did not know I'd be
back) I am letting you know that if you stay as Cap'n I have no complaints.  It is a
team effort after all but I should be back to stay.  There are no problems between
you and I and shall never be as long as we continue to be who we've been. -- Talon
Darkhart
P.S.  Bet the score keeping gets old, huh? lol

Hammer, You Illuminati Ice Pick of Enlightened Irritation -- Hope you're well.  Good
luck getting your personal situations in order and can't wait to meet ya back in the
states.  kLk kLk BOOM!! -- Talon Darkhart

Master Darque -- Enjoy the lead while you got it.  WHILE you got it. -- Talon
Darkhart

Jan -- I've been hearing some of your design ideas and all I got to say is...."What
the froth?"  I'm sure DOOMcorps is lookin for a few good managers.  Why don't ya call
'em? -- TDH

Silver -- Man, that was FAST! Have you ever worked for the Quicksilver Cab Company?
-- Louie

Homey D. Clone -- I think you were richly rewarded for learning Life Lesson #227--
never mess with an airplane mechanic and his tools! -- Lowell

Justice for All -- Well done!  Expect a rematch in the very near future.  -- Wilson

Halle Beary -- Going for the gusto? -- Jack McFarland

Jabberwock -- I commend you for your brave challenge. Few would attempt to challenge
a warrior who is faster and has more attack than themselves.  Good luck in the
future. -- Kramer

Heathen -- Damage ratings are important.  In general, the higher the damage the
better.  You can win doing little or normal damage with a warrior if you off-set the
damage liability with weapon and style design (i.e., defensive warriors fare better
with little or normal damage).  Slashing weapons (BA, BS, GA, HA, LO, SC) increase
the amount of damage your warrior inflicts.  Attack skills do nothing more than
increase your chances of hitting your opponent.  They have no effect on how much
damage is done when you hit someone.  In general, when designing a warrior I advise
trying to shoot for good damage if at all possible (the exception being large
warriors).  Chasing damage ratings by adding to ST is a game of luck, and I have lots
of examples of 21 ST warriors who were hosed on damage (about 60%).  Keep the ST at
17 (it gives you Good to Devastating for all sizes) or less and use the rest of your
points elsewhere to round out your design. -- Mannequin, mgr. Second Bananas

Sara F. -- Though Bear Nekkid loved the dance, he just couldn't seem to shake the
hangover.  Alas, the partying life caught up with him. -- The Forlorn furball, Kat

Anton Levay -- You in a hurry, Sparky? -- Bear Skinrug

Party Trap -- Never seen your style using that weapon before.  My manager likes the
idea! -- Prince Igor

Ahura Mazda -- Ack, you're a little out of my league. -- Wozzeck

Deadly -- Wow, I'm surprised I pulled that one out after seeing the matchups. --
Faust

Black -- Sorry about that! -- Medee

Sir Ghalahad -- Man, you had to break my backup too!  Things would have been much
different in those last 10 minutes. -- Clintonlikesbush

Amela Bunderson -- It was as I expected but with less skills. -- White Settler

Appius -- Damn, that challenge was from last turn, not sure what happened there. --
Hitler Youth

Red Dragon -- Next time I shall be the Dragonslayer. -- LBM

Fighting Tree -- I'm too young for the likes of you but my brother should like to
meet you. -- Devout Christian

Desolate Empire -- I see that you have stooped to a pathetic attempt at humiliation
due to your poor showing in the War.  It is all I would expect from an alliance of
your calibre. -- Maximillian

Oz -- Thank you, you honor my brothers, we hope to help better the VC's score a
little more despite our poor showing last turn. -- Maximillian, Natural B. Killers

Azraelus -- Why don't you let Hammer defend himself, or does it take the whole Puppy
pack to do the job? -- Maximillian

Lasher -- Goat looks to have ran back home, shouldn't the rest of you be running by
now? -- Maximillian

Liam the Goth -- We still have a decent showing in Morya, will you be staying? --
Maximillian

Raven -- You seem to have caused some consternation in North Fork, good for you.  I
guess anyone can get lucky. ;) -- Maximillian

Swamp Citizens -- Time has once again run out on my busy schedule making it
impossible to write a Spotlight for this month!  Still have to get paperwork sorted
out over here as well, but I have peace in my heart that all will be sorted out in my
favor! -- Hammer; the Illuminati Ice Pick of International Intrigue

Assorted Diplo Senders -- You know who you all are!  Thanks for the Diplos!  They are
a welcome addition to my newsletter packets!  Especially overseas!  Please forgive my
seeming silence to respond, but other matters have occupied my time and attention! --
Hammer; the Illuminati Ice Pick of Inconvenient Ill Mannered Delinquent Diplo
Response

Baphomet the Believer -- Several weeks ago I received a Diplo from you asking a
certain question.  I was not aware of any such perception.  Looking forward to
meeting you in person some day if at all possible!  My prayers are directed towards
your situation when so inspired.  Please forgive my seeming lack of response, but
other matters overseas have occupied my time and energy these past weeks!  -- Hammer
the Illuminati Ice Pick of International Intercession

Mr Coffee -- My prayers are with you as well, my friend!  Alas, I have not written a
Snail Letter, but plan to remedy that lack of correspondence this month! -- Hammer;
the Illuminati Ice Pick of Interrupted International Snail Mail Correspondence

HAL -- Hey!!  Why are you backing up my personals?  I'm going to look like a fool if
and when they all get printed. -- Blackstorm

Clintonlikesbush -- As you say.  My buddy Marajuana says the same about you guys.
He's trying to meet you. -- Zombie Knight

Heathen -- Plan B is not to panic then we move to plan C--heh, heh, which is.... --
Blackstorm
P.S.  Mail going out to you soon.

Mr. Coffee -- I like mine real black with lots of sugar.  I've been guzzling too much
lately.  By the way, I would have given us a +4 if I could have gotten in faster. --
Blackstorm

Baphomet -- Hey I'll be your friend too.  Can't have too many of those I suppose.
I'll still try and knock your guys senseless though. -- Blackstorm

Ghost of Amalric -- You were pretty solid.  I'd be curious how you were run. --
Evicserator

Snark -- We'll have to get the lead out.  Maybe Marajuana Man has something to get us
going. -- Blackstorm

Art Pendragon -- I think you got lucky there.  I guess the epee isn't going to cut
it.  May we meet again. -- Marajuana Man

Az -- Truthfully, I would brandy words with you, however, you sir, are beneath me.
We'll see coward!  As far as spell check, I don't type the newsletter, lame!!  By the
way, good turn in 52. -- Toker, Dark Knight of the Desolate Empire
P.S.  As I see from all your stories in the team spotlights in 36, 47 and what I
expect you'll write in 52 next turn, you're a Robert Jordan/Wheel of Time fan.  So
you can't be that bad.  Just watch out for plagiarism.  We wouldn't want that. (grin)

Lasher -- Let's step it up and punish!  Good luck this turn.  Let's get down and
dirty! -- D.K. Toker

Liam -- I have no reason but to have respect for a congenial night walker such as
yourself.  Again, good luck and enjoy. -- D.K. Toker

Wasby the Great, Dark Knight of the Desolate Empire -- All I have to say is:  Denver
Broncos and Super Bowl!  The two just fit together, don't ya think! (grin) -- D.K.
Toker

Heathen -- To tell the truth you've been around longer than I have.  I do remember
when the Turf War's host irritated everyone under the sun.  I caught part of you
two's feud while I was in 31.  I would take you up on the offer to join, but monetary
issues keep me from running this team every turn while I'm busy losing the Quest in
Fratsfa.  Thanks anyway. -- The Expatriate

The Saint -- The manager of Bleak Legion is The Expatriate!

     I have changed my list.  My apologies for the error! -- The Saint, keeper of
     sometimes inaccurate lists

Ed. -- I praised you and then you get me.  My spotlight should have read, "Hello
there, it's me again, and my MADMAN'S way of life.  Now I have to listen to all the
madam jokes, you jerk. -- The Expatriate

     Oops, sorry about that!  When it's a big arena like this one, I skim a bit more
     than I ought to sometimes (today is a good example of that!). -- Ed.

Azraelus -- It's nice to see someone else who does a little research. -- The
Expatriate

Louie -- Sorry about your luck pal, but if you didn't notice, I was very angry due to
my manager pushing me so hard while training.  I do hope that you find in the
future...a winning way and become great.  Good luck and may the gods favor you. --
Silver/Draconic Realm (519)

Stag -- Don't really know what to say...ummmmmmm...sorry I'm such of a tough guy that
you never had a chance! -- Timat II/Draconic Realm (519)

Cyrus the Great -- (%$&*#$*#$^*@!)  Nice challenge ol-boy!  I'm still trying to
figure out how I ended up with the same weapon in each hand  WOW!!!  Seems as though
it was the only thing that saved my worthless life!  Will see you very soon...
Convincian!!!  Do not walk around with your eyes closed.  I'll be stalking you!! --
Arauthator -- a (SAWOS!)

Blackened -- Well...well...well...they say once you've gotten a hold of a good thing
that you always come back for more, which you have done and did a very nice job of
it!  My manager being so sickened by my style and sickened by my way of fighting or
losing has snapped and is sending me to the dark arena this very turn.  He just
doesn't like any "wos" and highly recommends that they all be sent to the dark arena
at once!  All jokes aside...congrats for your great victory or should I say "Congrats
for your second great victory over me!"  Now I say good riddance to all of you low
life maggots! -- Claugiyliamatar-dark arena bound!

Baphomet -- "$@*&!#^%*@#&  I've told that nasty 'wos' to get its stuff together or it
would meet its fate.  Well it's over.  It's finished!  You might think with it's
numbers that it would stand a chance of winning???????  Instead...it just stank up
the sands like a dead jellyfish!  The other 'wos' will go next if it keeps up its
crap!!!  Offensive is the way to go--for me anyway!  I hope that your time spent with
Arauthator was well spent...maybe you got through to him? -- Sir Chester/Draconic
Realm (519)

Code Red -- Looks as if you're having as much fun as I'm having??  Braaahaaahaa!
C'mon, let's get or crap together and get to kicking some butts!!  I need some good,
good...very good replacement rollups soon!!

All -- Goodbye to one and all...here's my numbers for all to see. Thought I may win
more fights, but the gods have spoken and I must give my life up and walk on the dark
side. "wos" 10-11-11-15-17-5-15

Mr. Oz -- You mean to tell me you didn't see "The Muppet's Wizard of Oz?"  Oh, the
shame of it! -- Baphomet
P.S.  You didn't miss my rotten 0-5-0 turn though, did you? (grin)

Sir Chester -- You ain't the only one that got a waxing!  Now, pick up your weapon,
drop that bag of candy, and kill something! -- Baphomet

Illuminati -- When this team was created, TDH and I agreed that one of us would pick
up the slack if something happened to the other.  Should TDH not fight then I will be
acting in his behalf.  Any further verifications will need to be done through myself.
If anyone has problems with this...let me know and I'll clarify things for you. --
Baphomet
P.S.  As far as I'm concerned, if you're not a member of Illuminati outside of the
TW4...other than those already claimed and verified...the doors are closed for the
remainder of TW4.  Why?  We're freaking huge!!!

Azraelus -- Everyone already knows the obvious so no sense in getting your boxers
twisted every time someone throws out some garbage.  Unless of course you want to
kick some serious tail.  Then, just let me know and we'll follow proper channels...
and...you're right...Hammer ain't alone. -- Baphomet

Raven -- You're a girl!?!  REALLY?  I like girls. Seriously...I *REALLY LIKE* girls.
-- Baphomet (leering lecherously)

Expatriate -- I acknowledge your right to your opinions.  I also acknowledge my right
to keep doin what I've been going. -- Baphomet (with his 12 year old sense of humor
and his use of potty-humor whenever he gets a chance)

White Settler -- Don't worry...I've got a few more neat little tricks just waiting in
the bag. -- Ahura Mazda

Lasher -- If I didn't welcome you already...welcome to the Turf War and North Fork.
One thing's for certain...you'll either learn quickly here, or get beaten down.  This
ain't no walk in the park! -- Baphomet, with the best advice he can give

Abby -- Buffy?  Baffy?  I'd beat you down with a Druidic Ugly Stick, but it looks to
me like someone already got you! -- Baphomet (grin)

Mr. Coffee -- Nah...but you get the drift.  Your friendship is also returned.  Nice
try with Freeze Dried too.  SURPRISE!  (grin) -- Baphomet

Blackstorm -- I think it was Mr. Coffee who took care of the entry.  No problem.
Keep in touch. -- Baphomet

Buddy Lee -- I don't now about Turnarounds, but I sat on a horseshoe.  Hurt, but it
looks like it brought me some luck. -- Baphomet

Freeze Dried -- Looks like your beans got ground on that one. -- Art Pendragon

Clintonlikesbush -- Not close, and...no cigar. -- Sir Galahad

Wozzek -- Try understudying for awhile. -- Ahura Mazda

Tressa -- Another Maestus Mortales member in the dust.  NEXT! -- Etienne Duplaix

All -- Now I'm mad, or at least mentally shaken.  Let's try this.... -- Blackstorm

Riker -- Sorry dude, no free rides. -- Freeborn Bloodblade

Dark Heart -- This was unexpected. -- Eviscerator

Jack and Jill -- This sucks!!  I keep getting scummed. -- B-Thunder

Spawning of Swewn -- Round one to you, cough cough...I wonder if we'll meet again. --
Marajuana Man

Sister Mary Clarence -- The big bozo was 12(1)-20(1)15-7-15-4-13, x--parry.  He will
be missed and avenged. -- Blackstorm

Baphomet -- How does this work?  Do I name a new champion?  It is MM if he's
eligible; otherwise, it's Eviscerator. -- Blackstorm

Kat -- I'm sorry for your loss.  To think I had been avoiding your ripper.  Sara
might not have been so bloodthirsty if your fighter would have had some clothes on.
-- Skullagrim

Spectre -- You should have seen that coming. -- Skullagrim

Spectre -- What were you thinking with that next challenge. -- Skullagrim

Marburg -- My boss says I suck.  Reverse psychology didn't' work and I should visit
the DA with a name like mine.  I figure huge ego people would have killed me off.  So
unless you want to chill in the grave, we'll hang out. -- Out to (chill) Kill

Sir Chester -- Sent you a long as essay. -- Buddy Lee
P.S.  Keep your chin up.  I know you're better than that.  Challenge or it challenged
still the same pts might as well post 'em and try to win.  This goes for you to
Suicide!

Raven -- Holy crapper. -- Buddy Lee
P.S.  Kill joy...raspberries.

Liam -- Holy crapper. -- Buddy Lee
P.S.  Ouch.

Max -- How about a spot! -- Buddy Lee

Snarky -- Okay you win!  The guy with the most minus pts.  Now reverse that! -- Buddy
Lee

Fizban -- What's up?!  Let's get that cert on the way! -- Buddy Lee

Marburg -- Here's your ass back. -- Opai
P.S.  Where you learn to parry like that?!

Abraxis -- Yes I am Idoueus to the game (whatever that means), but I know when to
humble myself and build a friendship rather than destroy it.  So in all fairness
here's a solid hand in friendship, should you choose to chop it off.  Take my good
one. -- Buddy Lee

Heathen -- Well said.  It is only my opinion anyway.  What do I know?  I only have
two wastes.  One of which is here.  Have a good dam.  It's not in the development;
it's making it out of basic.  AB, LU, SL, TP tend to prey upon them AND there are
many of them.  Not so many AB, but you get what I mean.  On the importance of damage:
Hell yeah!  Look at all the scums in the arena. *grin*  But on a serious note, "I"
think it's style dependent.  The higher the DF the less the STR, but "I" always try
to average 20+ on SZ and ST. -- Buddy Lee the newbie

Wasby the Great -- Looking better this turn.  When in doubt, get the spy report. --
Buddy Lee

The Expatriate -- I've tried the warsheep thing; they run away in battle.  What?!
It's never too late to declare!  With who?  Might as well be the friends of your
enemies.  Illuminati of course!  We're so deep already we might as well have an army!
Besides, what's one more or even a few more going to hurt!  "If" we win, all the more
glory.  Big IF, but who cares?  (No, no, I care just a little.) -- Buddy Lee

Illuminati -- My deepest apologies for the loss of so many points last turn to the
Syree Trenis.  My purpose here is to suppress the OP-FOR.  Will get back to Seek and
Destroy. -- Liam the Goth, TCB

Raven -- It would seem I have lost a soul to you.  Great TV Challenge.  The first
anyone has ever used on me.  I am honored to be the first on your list. -- Liam
P.S.  Don't be hating *grin*

Heathen -- Afflux was 13-8-9-17-15-5-17, not 13-8-3-17-15-5-17, but Manager killed
her last year. -- Liam

Sir Chester -- Sent you some worms. *grin* -- Liam

Hammer -- Congrats on Top Team last turn! -- Liam

Buddy Lee -- Congrats on Top Team in Jhans last turn! -- Liam

Expatriate -- Sent you a gift.  Hope it fits.  Yes the dead can move fast if he has
to. -- Liam the Unholy
P.S.  Incubus ran into a Bigger Monster with Bigger teeth (shrugging).  Do tell a
story to us please.

Baphomet -- Where do you think I get the blood for the ice and Bloody Mary? -- Liam

Baphomet -- Dave Kim, that would be me good sir. -- Destroying Angel (Condemned
Angels Jhans)

Suicide -- Brimstone and Blood. *grin*

Liam -- The dead walk in the wind.  Tears flow with their blood and is lost. -- Abby
the Goth

Liam -- No zombie juice huh? -- Serenity
P.S.  Up before ante meridian, a no no, late past Meridian, plus c'est la me me
chose, Parli Que'becois

Baphomet -- Please send me the contest rules.  I just moved and lost them.
