                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, what do you know?  A Warhammer on the throne!  Take a chance, and you just
might end up on the throne as I have.  With all the experienced managers here, I
doubted I would make it.  Now if I could just hold on to it...

                    Duelmaster Tempus

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to DOUBLE-X once again!  You know what they say about the herd of 
lions who studied a judge...  THE SERPENTS moved up 11 places, to 6th.  Who can 
explain it?  Not you, not me, not OF WOLF AND MAN's opponents, after watching them 
shoot up the ranks from 19th to 8th.  You know what they say about the herd of lions 
who studied a judge...  ALL SWAMP HAMMERZ moved up 18 places, to 10th.  Some people 
say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  
Well LAND OF OZ moved up 5, to 5th.  What's with SWAMP BOGG HAMMER?  He actually beat 
THE SERPENTS' ASP, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were 
big at ALL SWAMP HAMMERZ while they watched SWAMP BOGG HAMMER clobber ASP.  He lost 
15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently DOUBLE-X 
isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 5 
challenges this turn!  Another fighter (SMOKESCREEN 10-3-1) challenged another 
Duelmaster (TEMPUS 18-23-1).  Life goes on.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for 
DARQUE FORCES' outstanding member, Duelmaster SMOKESCREEN.  Advice to fighters with a 
1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
ROYAL FLUSH.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at WARHAMMERS ain't reelin'!  
ROYAL FLUSH's mad!  SISTER MERCY didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she 
received from HANTA of DOK SIK KILLAS, who is 18 points below her.  HANTA perhaps got 
his just desserts, seeing as he beat SISTER MERCY and ended up with 102 recognition 
points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that RED 
DEVIL gets in.  She fights people like MEDEE, 10 points below.  I thought RED DEVIL 
showed great skill and promise when she bested MEDEE.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  IRWIN ROMMEL of TIMELY HEROES didn't know when to 
quit.  When you've got a 3-7-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
DOUBLE-X is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

15 managers have announced for the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse!!!!!!  There is still 
time to join and make a name for yourself in one of Alastari's fiercest contests!  I

Slaughterhouse!

of the contest.  You may also email or diplo Master Darque.

*Each manager entering the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse must submit one (1) Team Roll-Up 
Certificate.  Only certificates will be accepted for entry.  All certificates 
submitted will be used during the course of the contest as prizes.

*RU certificates must be received on or before the first turn of the contest which is 
Stormcrowe Turn 263 (running approximately November 27, 2007).

RULES and SCORING

Rules and Scoring information for the Slaughterhouse will be posted every turn in the 
Stormcrowe newsletter beginning with Turn 260 and in a final all arena ad in 
November.

PRIZES

ENDURANCE AWARD:  One (1) +1 Bonus Potion will be given to every team that competes 
in 60 of the 65 contest fights.

Immortality Potion.  This potion may be applied to one (1) warrior.  He/she will be

pack for their Slaughterhouse Dominance:

*Undisclosed amount of Team RU Certificates

Special note from RSI on prizes:  All contest prizes must be used within three 
months.  All contest prizes may only be used on a living warrior on the participating 
contest team in DM 45.  The immortality potion may resurrect a warrior one time, 
after a death in DM 45 only, after which time the potion disappears.

diplo in DM 45 (Darque Forces-428).

Ok, ok, you can stop not-talking about TOGS VI already, it is coming, slowly but
surely, like a giant, over-fed, greased slug sliding down a gravely driveway.  We're
looking for new-comers, old-timers, in-betweeners, fence-sitters and Delarquans to
come on out and participate.  Just think, you could be the next Pinky & the Brain
pairing (a la Creepster & Manager), or maybe you'll be the team that crushes all in
its path on the way TO UTTER AND COMPLETE TOGS DOMINATION!!!!!!  [note:  insert
sinister cackle if it helps you complete the picture]

There will be a few minor changes, so let's recap the rules from top to bottom:

1.  Each TOGS team consists of two managers.  After the contest starts, there will be
no switching partners whatsoever, so choose your teammate wisely.  TOGS VI will last
for 13 turns, so pick a partner you can stand for 6 months or so.

2.  The TOGS entry fee is 2 team setups per manager.  This means 4 setups per TOGS
team.  This entry fee is required before the start of the tourney with no exceptions
being made.  This is to ensure that nobody gets screwed if a team or manager decides
to back out early.  To pay the entry fee either:
     a)  send $10 cash/check/money order/ or whatever to me personally at:
          Paul Jokelson
          115 Moss Ave. #201
          Oakland, CA 94611
     b)  get RSI to send me 2 team setup gift certificates.  Sorry, no credit cards
         and no old teams you have lying around will be accepted.

3. TOGS point system:

Fights: 

10 points for winning on your up-challenge against another TOGS warrior.
 7 points for winning on your even challenge of another TOGS warrior.
 7 points for winning on another TOGS warriors challenge.
 7 points for winning a random match-up against another TOGS warrior.
 4 points for winning on your down-challenge of another TOGS warrior.
 4 points for winning a random match-up against a non-TOGS warrior.

Changes this TOGS: 

** 10 points for any challenge by the DM, UP OR DOWN!!
** 4 points for winning a random match-up against your TOGS partner's warrior.
To state the obvious, there are 0 points if you challenge your partner.

** 4 points for winning a bloodfeud attempt against you by a non-TOGS warrior

You will not get any points if you challenge or get challenged by a non-TOGS team
(with the exception of the above-stated rule if you get bloodfeuded), so use your
avoids wisely if you think someone is out to get you.

Spots/Ads

5 points for every spotlight written by any team member.  1 per manager per turn.

The minimum length of a spotlight to receive points is 1/2 column in the newsletter
(that's 31 lines-each line 85 characters across) and we will be completely firm on
this.  In addition to the length criteria, spotlights will not be given points if
they are in any way plagiarized or if they are not Duelmasters or fantasy related.
We will be the sole judge of this.  If you're unsure if we will judge something to be
Duelmasters or fantasy related, then e-mail me before you write the spotlight and
ask.  We reserve the right to take points away from a spotlight after they are given
if we judge at later time that the spotlight has been plagiarized.

-5 points per manager per turn every time a manager does not at least write one
personal ad.

4.  TOGS VI will start in arena 60 shortly after the Winter Face-to-Face (turn due
Feb 21, Aradi turn 436) and as mentioned before will last for 13 turns.  There will
be multipliers in the later rounds, which means that all points accumulated by a team
on turns 10 and 11 will be multiplied by 1.5 and all points accumulated by each team
on turns 12 and 13 will be multiplied by 2.

5.  Soultaker and Nuln will be the sole arbiters of any dispute that may arise, with
props to Sentinel for doing the score-keeping as always.  Whine all you like, we will
be glad to provide comfortable chairs and the cheese of your choice.

And there be the rules.  If you look closely, you'll notice there were a few minor
changes and additions made from the TOGS V rules.  They are as follows:

-- The Snotman & Nuln rule:  Last TOGS Snotman and Nuln randomly matched up something
like 4-5 times, so we basically decided out of pity to now give a small amount of
points (4 in this case) for winning a random against a teammate, so that you're not
completely screwed by having 2 of your 10 warriors get 0 zero points automatically.

-- Scaling Down Points for the DM:  Previously a TOGS DM would get 10 points *in
addition* to whatever challenge points they got.  This was to keep the DM from being
penalized for being at the top and give people something to fight for.  However, it
was a bit too much of an award and we decided to scale it back and eliminate the
bonus, but give full upchallenge credit whenever the DM challenges.

-- Bloodfeuds from outside TOGS teams:  This incident came up last TOGS, and it was
felt that if a person killed a non-TOGS warrior in a random, they shouldn't have to
be potentially locked into 4 turns of getting 0 points.  So we've added an additional
rule which now gives 4 points if you win when bloodfeuded by a non-TOGS warrior, at
least giving you some way to get points if you're locked into a non-TOGS bloodfeud
instead of being basically removed from the contest for 4 turns.

And lastly...

-- Team Names:  This was not listed in the rules, but to make things more festive, at
the suggestion of Manager we have decided to have the added dimension of team names!
Yes, no more boring rankings with Team 4 edging out Team 7.  Just picture reading a
TOGS turn report now, with something along the lines of "Team Fiery Starfish
obliterated Team Superior TOGSlings," just as one example.

We hope to see you all there....
