                         *HEATHEN'S CAFE*

     Buddy Lee asked about Favourite Rhythms; i.e. what are they, what does they
give, how does they work, etc.
     Favourite Rhythms are the Offensive Effort and Activity Level (and sometimes
Tactic) that your warrior is assigned that will best enhance his fighting ability.  I
believe "faves" are assigned to the warrior at creation.  They provide bonuses to
skills and allow the warrior bonuses to some of its physicals as well.
     Each warrior has a Fave Rhythm assigned specifically for that particular warrior
which falls within specific ranges for the warrior's specific style of fighting.
It's still a work in progress though and needs to be tweaked a little bit.  In
time...I'll nail down the "exacts."
     Buddy also asked about Kill Desire...this is pretty much a personal kind of
thing.  While some tactics have preferences where the warrior will fight better, even
some styles have a better chance of hitting intended attack locations with lower
K.D.s.  However, if you want to get more death intent statements...then that's
probably due to higher KDs...say +7.  ABs fight better, in my opinion, with low KDs.
Again, that's a personal preference and what I've seen happen.  The best KD is
dependent upon what you want, and your style of fighting.

     Liam the Goth was in his sitting room at the Citadel of Shadows sharpening his
morning star, Death Bane, as Baphomet talked about current events.
     "We ain't outta this yet," Baphomet said, taking a drink of red wine.
     Liam looked up and smiled, "Uh--oh never mind."
     Baphomet was about to speak when there was a knock at the door.  Liam walked out
while Baphomet poured himself another glass of wine.
     Liam walked in.  "The others are here."  Suicide, Buddy Lee, Talon and Hammer
walked in.
     Buddy Lee sat in the sofa next the Baphomet as the rest took chairs.
     "Baphomet brought up the situation we are in."
     "That's right, now we have a lot of turns left but we got to kick it up a
notch," Baphomet said.  "Now I have been looking at some of the local news and we are
still in a good position."
     "News from a knight who drinks blood from a wine glass..." Talon said as
Baphomet spewed all he had over his side.
     "Oh not on furbished rug!" yelled Liam.  "I did try to warn you," he said
running a black fingernailed hand through his hair.
     Buddy Lee stood up and all watched the black bearded dwarf as he walked to the
middle of the floor.  "Now the Brim Stone Dwarves have marked some of the most
popular spots of this swamp, and even masked as orderlies at the arena infirmary so
by hook or by crook we'll bring down the competition."
     "I like sucking the blood out of mine," Liam said.
     "Just bring on the torches and burn them," Suicide put in.
     "We fight with honor and we shall prevail," Talon said.
     Hammer was nodding off so Liam nodded to him and Buddy Lee tapped him as he went
back to his seat.
     So we shall study from our mistakes and adjust as needed," Baphomet said.
     "Or just put some knock out into their drinks," Liam said.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's 
corny) is NATURAL B. KILLERS 2, who swept up 15 places in the ranks.  Take a look at 
THE OPERA's act, as they have a 4-1-0 week and gain 12 places in the team ranking.  
Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is LAND 
OF OZ, who swept up 15 places in the ranks.  What goes up, must come down.  Watch out 
SCOMSS SWAMP!  PALINDROMES may fall on you as it crushes past the teams below it to 
fall on the 18th spot.  Take a look at COFFEE RULES!'s act, as they have a 2-3-0 week 
and gain 12 places in the team ranking.  A seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But 
to LOST SOULS, which fell to 21st, it's what you soak in before going to the Dark 
Arena.  Suffering under a 0-4-0 record and dropping from 7th to 22nd place were the 
LIFE'S LESSONS.  Keep trying!  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread 
(okay, I admit it's corny) is BAAL'S MINIONS, who swept up 11 places in the ranks.  A 
seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to SALEM'S LOT, which fell to 27th, it's 
what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  Take a look at THE BOAR'S NEST's 
act, as they have a 3-2-0 week and gain 15 places in the team ranking.  Rising in the 
ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is FEATHERS FLYIN', who 
swept up 12 places in the ranks.  It looks like the guys(?) at THINGS I DROOL IN had 
a good week as they went 4-1-0 to put them in 10th place.  I guess steroids help!  
Hey everybody, watch out for SWAMP LILY HAMMER, who flew up 26 points in the rankings 
after mashing TOTO like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MARBURG was overcame by PARTY TRAP and drops 
15 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  
KRAMER made a Dark Arena Challenge against MURDEROUS MARK this week.  The crowds were 
amazed this turn, as MURDEROUS MARK killed the Duelmaster, KRAMER, leaving SECOND 
BANANAS in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, BOMBADIL from 
FREEDONIA to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  
Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that ADULT SWIM was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of ADULT SWIM's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to 
boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause GOTHIC MINISTRY beats feet every time 
ADULT SWIM smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this HOMEY D. CLONE you ask, 
with 26 points and a 5-3-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Getting lots of 
flowers from sympathetic fans was WHITE SETTLER, who was successfully challenged by 
JACK MCFARLAND who had a mere 16 points more than WHITE SETTLER.  Well JACK 
MCFARLAND, just can't get an easy fight anymore can you?  You thought challenging 
down 16 points to WHITE SETTLER would be fun.  Right?  Wrong!  Challenging down 20 
points was WILSON.  Pretty soon it'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The 
only way to clean up' pins.  Here is a definition of happiness:  PHILP OF MACEDON 
dispatched WILSON to go from 36 to 65 recognition points.  Can any one out there say 
'weasel'?  Oh well, just saying SHADE'S FORM will do.  She challenged 20 points down 
to trash DRAYGON.  I just want to congratulate DRAYGON on beating SHADE'S FORM.  He 
overcame his superior-ranked opponent and gained 20 points.  Congrats!  In a touching 
display by a 'touched' warrior, WOZZECK went after SWEET N LOW, who was higher by 18 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, WOZZECK bested SWEET N LOW.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  This week 2-11-0 ROBUST BREW was sent to 
the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice 
of this.  STAG defied all odds and slew PUTRID PATRICK in the Dark Arena.  The only 
ones displeased were the buzzards, as PUTRID PATRICK's meat is notoriously tough.  I 
have no doubt that DOK SIK KILLAS will be celebrating long and loud their warrior 
CYANIDE's slaying of BONDS ON 'ROIDS on the sands.  The audience likes blood and 
there was plenty of it covering FAUST as he was driven to an early grave by SISTER 
SLEDGE of the OLD HABITS.  This round goes to AGE OF EMPIRES, their 6-2-1 warrior, 
PHILP OF MACEDON slew the 7-4-1 WILSON.  Stay tuned next week to see what happens.  
Congrats to CYANIDE for revenging the death of hers teammate (but more importantly, 
feeding BONDS ON 'ROIDS a bit of dirt).  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 SCOMSS SWAMP have 
no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make 
some tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown

Art Pendragon -- Avoiding ME?! That is so Raven. -- Humbug (looking so forward to the
"bah" season)

Kudos to the mighty Mannequin, who keeps showing who is on top. -- Oz The All
Covetous

Slugbait -- Thank you for saving up your wins from The Mailer, so you could utilize
them more effectively for The Fellowship.  You are a Hero! -- Oz The All Praising

Baphomet -- My Ozers and me deserve your utmost razzing for our 0-5, especially since
we had just done the same to you.  Both of us are despicable whelps! -- Oz The All
Humble

Blackstorm -- Well said about that change in the air.  We smell it! -- Oz The All
Excited

Draygon -- Thank goodness I remembered that spell at the last minute! -- Magic Wand

Bombadil -- Ran for the hills; not to play; another day. -- Fighting Tree

Dainty China -- Our 13-7-10-17-10-16-11 BA was caught in the excitement of The Mailer
and shattered!  She will be missed.  Eventually, a replacement will arrive. -- Oz The
All Bereaved

Halle Beary -- I had a great time on our date.  Wow!  Anybody would.  I guess I just
felt so masterful. -- Toto

What happened Father O?  No 5-0?  No spankings?  Those Sisters on strike? -- Oz The
All Puzzled

Mr. Crip -- We hope you did well in the Mailer.  Do not report disgusting numbers as
others did. -- Oz The All Hopeful

In the spirit of a Great Holiday Season, we are asking that all participants donate
wins to the Emerald City account.  Oz will use them wisely. -- The Consortium Scribe

Bonds on 'Roids -- Doh!  I hope it wasn't the roids which allowed you to turn that
fight around. -- Wozzeck

Vash the Stampede -- Ouch, thought I had that one. -- Faust

Lil Bit -- Sorry about that.  That challenge was a little mean. -- Medee

Robust Brew -- Nothing like the smell of coffee to wake you up in the morning! --
Prince Igor

Kristina -- No chance for me in that one. -- Madame Butterfly

X-Syndicate -- Wow, we had the highest TV percentage in the tourney!  Today the Turf
War, Tomorrow TOGS, Zalcon, and the Battle Royale.  The day after that we take over
the world! -- Impresario

Raven -- 499 Points
The Rest of the Arena Combined -- 425 points.

I propose that the next turf war format be Raven vs. Everyone Else!

Angelika -- Wrong strat on my part, and even if it weren't, I'll still say it was.
Nice fight! -- Jade Falcon

Baphomet -- It's all good, I'll watch for blockers. -- Buddy Lee

Illuminatti -- Hope we did well in tourney.  Wish we had a few TCs on our side.
Wishful thinking. -- Buddy Lee

Baphomet -- Declaring Demonic Hex my champ. -- Liam the Goth

Marajuana Man -- One apiece now; shall we go for the rubber match? --
Clintonlikesbush

Morwhen -- I kinda thought that might have been the outcome, just testing. -- Devout
Christian

Racecar -- My manager should have known better than to match such a style against
you. -- LBM

Leppada -- Finally someone I can beat, I was losing hope. -- White Settler

Hammer -- Nice showing in the Turf War, at least you and Mikey are doing all right.
-- Maximillian
P.S.  Don't worry about not phoning lately, call me when you get back home.  Later,
my friend.

Mr. Coffee -- The final decision came in--September 2007.  Not really what I'd
expected, but it's something, I guess.  Sorry for my absence and I'll do my best to
get back in this thing.  HAL be damned! -- Heathen

Blackstorm -- What is Duel 2?  I must be a bit out of touch as I have no idea what
you're talking about--I play Duelmasters! -- Heathen

Suiside -- And you don't seem to know very many of them! -- Heathen Hatebred

Liam -- You probably shouldn't mention Doll Houses to Asmo as it tends to bring up
memories best left forgotten for him. -- Heathen

Asmo -- Others may forget but I don't. -- Heathen Hatebred

Maximillian -- My comments were meant as a help, and not disrespectful.  But, since
you want to talk about records, since TW4 began, your record is 9-15-1.  That's about
33%.  My record is 15-14-1. That's better than 50%.  You've dropped 5.5% since turn
223.  I've risen 3.5% since T223.  In the two years I've run this team in North Fork
(or SCOMSS SWAMP), I've lost *ONLY* two fights vs. the entire Vendetta Cartel (to
M.D. and Firehawk's Home Guard) and none of those fights were to *YOU*!  Current
standings...only two VC teams above me...Kat's and Street Legal's.  Yours is seven
spots behind me!  If you plan on exterminating me, you better either bring the rest
of your alliance, or improve drastically.  And, in the immortal words of Forrest
Gump, "that's all I've got to say about that." -- Baphomet, mgr. Knights Templar (and
waiting for you to make your move)

Oz -- Okay, another flub.  Happens and I've seen the best managers in the game do the
same.  So, I feel like I'm in good company.  Although, I'd prefer to be in different
company when that happens. (grin) -- Baphomet

Hammer -- Until February or March...if all goes well...I'll be right here.  No move
will take place until then.  After that...I'll let you know ASAP.  My prayers remain
with you. -- Baphomet

Mannequin -- Okay...Kramer was a BEAST!  But, last time I checked...*I* own the
Knights.  You beat them a lot, but...*I* own them. -- Baphomet (grin)

Liam -- Remember to send me an invitation to that siege.  I may decide to activate a
team somewhere.  I have about 30 of them now. -- Baphomet

Blackstorm -- Happy to see someone sees my suggestions as helpful hints and not some
crazy nonsense.  If I can help, let me know. -- Baphomet

Blackstorm -- The stench you smell is Maximillian's breath. -- Baphomet (holding his
nose)

Expatriot -- I know who you were also.  We've met on the sands in Dragonhead. --
Baphomet (with no real problem with you)

Mr. Coffee -- In the past, my communication with Blackstorm has been via diplo. --
Baphomet

Buddy Lee -- As you requested, check the spotlights. -- Baphomet

Appius -- Ahh...a 20 point DC, style advantage, and at least 10 FE advantage.
Remember...this ain't over.  I've got a couple friends above you that will be
returning the favor. -- Tristan

Kramer -- Thanks for the shot at the Throne.  Congrats on your invite.  It was well
deserved. -- Art Pendragon

Jack McFarland -- Had I known we would have matched up...I'd have had a trick waiting
for you. -- Ahura Mazda

Bullseye -- Notice is said "luckily beaten by".  Next time we meet, you'll be pushing
up daisies. -- Etienne Duplaix

Drama Queen -- Nice fight, now you've been marked. -- Man Hunter

Buddy Lee -- Got your note.  One coming at you. -- Suicide, Watcher of Hell's Gate

Liam the Goth -- Received message, Fire & Brimstone Forever. -- Suicide, Watcher of
Hell's Gate

Liam -- Don't quite get stun, I believe in override though. -- Suicide, Watcher of
Hell's Gate

Jabberwock -- RIP (Swamp's no place for the old and infirm) -- SNARKCold

Swamp Rose Hammer -- TARZAN DEMAND REMATCH!

(...a rose by any other name would smell as funny... -- SNARKY, lettin' one rip--I
heard you laugh, Expatriate!)

Black Ball -- On your knees... -- The Kurgen

Fighting Tree -- Leaf me be, Old Man Willow. -- Bombadillo
("We rolled these leaves to be irrelevant..." -- SNARKunbridled smile: "Zardoz, What
does 'inept' mean?")

Buddy Lee -- Oh no you don't...now "reverse that," eh? -- SNARK (tag, you're Gandhi)

Win, Chester!

Little Big Parts -- Yeah, me no king of swamp... -- TARZAN, King of JUNGLE

Baphomet -- "...but if you try sometimes...you can get who you KNEAD!" -- SNARKIN'
and a' rollin'

(OK, Liam, now you're embarrassing me; if I give you the "Good Sir" award will you
cut it out?  (We're supposed to be adversaries.) -- Mean & Nasty SNARK don't tangle
with...uh...aar! :)

Wow, Ed...last turn was wonderful...perfect ads, to the letter... -- SNARK, turning
beet-red

     It had to happen some day.  Next scheduled occurrence is sometime in 2072. --
     Ed.

T.A.F.F.Y.O.K.D.O.K.E.E.s -- Way to streeeetch out our comeback; no one's expecting
it!  (That's how good we are.) -- SNARKunleashed

Black Stormbrother -- 10-10-1?!  No women cry, and no desire no winnin'. --
SNARKdryeyed

alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
