                             Notes from the arena champ.

Dog on the Loose is out doing his business and unavailable to do his own column.  
Therefore, I get to do the column!

The TW scoring program has been fantastic.  I have an enhancement planned for next 
time, but even without the enhancement, the ability to do the live scoring has been 
fantastic.  I hope all you appreciate the work that was put in to make this happen.  I 
do need to thank Master Darque for doing the 'hard' part of the scoring.  He has 
worked tirelessly without many thanks.

I have asked the Consortium to give him a very big raise next time!  I think it should 
be at least 30%.

Just one more turn.  Several alliances still have victory within reach, though many 
need to win the turn AND have the leaders falter.  And most of the teams should gain 
the endurance award.

See you next turn!

                                          -- Assur

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in NORTH FORK since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  NORTH FORK 
watched with glee as GARBAGE PAIL KIDS got knocked off top spot by D.A. REJECTS!  You 
know what they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  SPROUT OF MY MIND 
moved up 19 places, to 5th.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not THE WILD 
HUNT's opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 23rd to 11th.  You know 
what they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  MENTOR'S MISFITS moved 
up 24 places, to 16th.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not TEAM BLACKSTAFF's 
opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 36th to 18th.  You know what 
they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  BASH BROS PARK moved up 11 
places, to 21st.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not SPECTRAL STEEL's 
opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 33rd to 22nd.  You know what 
they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  HOWLIN MAD moved up 17 
places, to 27th.  Looking for a good fight, confident, skilled, tough opponents.  
Well don't look at SATAN'S MINIONS, cause they dropped by 17.  Ever take one of those 
association tests?  You know, he says black, you say white.  Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. 
Try this:  Flop.  SNOW FORT!  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not TOKEN ENTRY's 
opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 45th to 33rd.  EL CAMINO:HOT 
SAUCE bit the big one as they could not win.  They dropped from 10th down to 34th!  
Are you guy giving lessons or what?  Ever take one of those association tests?  You 
know, he says black, you say white.  Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. Try this:  Flop.  80'S 
DISCO!  Looking for a good fight, confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't 
look at DARQUE FORCES, cause they dropped by 12.  You know what they say about the 
herd of lions who studied a judge...  TEAM BLACK moved up 11 places, to 47th.  It 
seems so recently people were saying MYSTIC ORC FEAST was washed up, finished.  But 
4-1-0 moved them up 9.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with STINK FACE?  
He actually beat D.A. REJECTS' LIL PRINCESS, and walked away with 26 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at BIG LAKE GROOVE while they watched OOKLA THE MOK 
clobber ONE TIME!.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Another fighter (CYCLONUS 12-5-1) challenged another Duelmaster (DOG ON THE 
LOOSE 19-13-1).  Life goes on.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for DARQUE FORCES' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster CYCLONUS.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, HOWLIN MAD!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SHEWISH DINER ain't reelin'!  HOWLIN MAD's 
mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, VALAC!  Don't 
make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  SLUSH PUPPY didn't quite know 
what to make of a challenge she received from BLACK-HAMMER of TEAM BLACK, who is 19 
points below her.  BLACK-HAMMER perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was 
defeated by SLUSH PUPPY and ended up with 8 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  HOMESTEADER looked pretty sick and surprised when she learned 
BIG IDEA is sending her to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'she expect with a 6-11-1?  LIL 
PRINCESS of D.A. REJECTS didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 9-7-0, that's a 
good sign.  Now she's dead.  JOE BANANAS, with his forgettable 5-5-0,  was put to 
death by VARS FOLLEY in a forgettable match.  WEIRD ALCHEMY didn't seem to mind very 
much.  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around 
with a 4-8-0, and LAST CARESS easily took care of BLANSKI.  HIRELING of SATAN'S 
MINIONS didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 5-5-0, that's a good sign.  Now 
he's dead.  CHEERS' boys should be laying low.  Now that CHEERS' manager has gone and 
let DRONE A1 kill LILITH unchallenged, CHEERS' fighters are fair game.  SLINGHOT 
larned hers lesson (DATABASE EDITOR taught it well), and we right likely won't be 
seein' 'im fight any BIG LAKE GROOVE members with the same gusto.  Someone told 
MORGAN that STAR PRAIRIE never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm 
sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  SCARLET DEN was plum wore out after BELKIRA 
pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  D.A. REJECTS'll have to get a little better before 
going after BELKIRA again!  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  
You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

TW Turn 8 Scoring Adjustment:

80's Disco had sent strats to RSI (confirmed by RSI).  They will get credit for having 
fought 5 fights and the points for their team and alliance will be updated 
accordingly. -- TW Moderators

     Players are encouraged to put their teams on maintenance for the duration of the 
Turf War.  This ensures that they will run with the same strategies they ran on the 
prior turn.  Note: Only the 'main' strategy is carried forward from turn to turn.  
Challenges, Avoids, and the challenge/if challenge boxes and strategy are not kept.
     While the ancient personal ads posted last round were some of the best (cough, 
cough) we have ever seen, we felt the need to resend our "missing" Land Of Oz ads in 
hopes that they would be published.  Our "new" ads are also coming shortly.

consult the DM93 newsletters and mentors there.

Black Dragon, what's a dragon or one of your style needing a shield.  That's as dumb

Well, go ahead and cry.

Scarlet Den, tsk; tsk. -- Oz The All Thoughtful

Health. Humility. Honor. -- Oz The All Prophetic

Oz the All Philosophical -- Hypocritical.  Hirsute.  Hircine.

AA -- As the stagecoach sticker says, "We may be slow but we're ahead of you!"

Overheard at the Motel 6 room that Den and Oz finally got to save the rest of us from 
their secret affection... "Those aren't pillows!!"

Mud Path (Hershey Highway) -- Consider Cialis!

Pharos -- Alone in the bog, you were curious about the arena, about it is quicksands!

Ron We Slay -- Go slay Ron.  I don't like you. -- Mud Path

                             composed by Sir Jessie Jest

     Greetings to all.  After many weeks of compiling a database with informationon 
the parry-riposte, I would like to thank the many managers that donated their time and 
effort to make this project work.  We all hope that many managers benefit from these 
efforts to further the interest in this style.

                          ***            ***            *** 

     Parry-ripostes, or rippers, can be very deadly if trained and managed 
effectively.  Rippers aren't as widely understood as the more common high skill base 
styles are.   They do draw managers who like more of a challenge.  It is not a style 
for quick fix, so to speak.   They start with much less skill and development than 
many other styles.  This means they require a much longer development time before 
reaching that successful stage.  Rippers are not good short-term warriors.  They lack 
what it takes to get many wins early in their career.   When you make a ripper, you're 
in for the long haul.
     When making a ripper, it is good to think about making him survive through Basic.  
Rippers have the second highest death rate, with aimed blows being the first.  The 
main reasons for this, I believe, are poor warrior design and/or poor strategy.  
Rippers, even if designed exactly the same, vary more from one to another than most 
styles in general.  The aimed blow, I believe, is the only other style that varies 
more widely from one to another than the ripper.  Finding your ripper's likes and 
dislikes may be quite a task, indeed.
     The first thing to get a good ripper is warrior design.   His starting stats will 
greatly effect his starting skill bases as well.   Since rippers starting skill base 
is lower than some of the other styles, getting as many bonus skills from initial 
stats is very important.   These bonus skills are given most in the WIT and DEFTNESS 
stats.   Odd numbered stats are where most of the bonus skills are at, such as 13, 15, 
17 and 21.  There are no bonus stats to be gained at 19 in any stat except speed.  
Good rippers will have a minimum of 32 points between wit and deftness.  34 or more 
points is preferred. 17 or 21 WT and 17 or 21 DT makes the best rippers.

Ripper stats:

Strength:      7-11  gives you the range you need for all ripper weapons.

Con:           10-14 helps keep your ripper alive and helps with encumbrance.  A wise 
               manager would put any left over points here, rather than speed.  We'll
               get to that in a minute.

Size:          3-11,  no bigger.  It's a waste of points and kills your defense, which 
               is one thing that will keep your ripper alive.

Wit:           15, 17 or 21 -- No less.  You need the bonus skills and the quick 
               learning to make up for the lower skill base.

Will:          15+  Not necessary, but to be successful quicker in ADM get at least a 
               15.

Speed:         5-9   Speed is the most disputed thing among ripper managers.  It is 
               split 50/50 on its contribution to a rippers success.  I believe any 
               extra points left over after adding to odd number WT, WL, and DF should 
               go to CON, not speed.  It makes no difference whether you get those 
               skills gained from speed now, or later on.  They are still the same 
               number of skills.  Those few skills won't make as much difference 
               now, as CON does in keeping the ripper ALIVE.   A dead ripper's bases 
               don't matter much, now, do they?  ;)

Deftness       15,17, or 21 no less.  This is a MUST.  Deftness gives the most bonus 
               skills out of all the stats.   Unlike other styles, which start out 
               with higher bases, a ripper needs all the bonuses he can get.  Don't 
               skimp here.  Also, many of the rippers weapons require high deftness.

     The average skill bonuses you get for the parry-riposte style are as follows: 
(Taken from the "Ween Chart" that includes decimals)
Skill                                                Bonus
======                                               ======
Attack                                               -1.6
Parry                                                -0.1
Defense                                              -3
Initiative                                           3.1
Decise                                               1.8
Riposte                                              4.6

     Naturally, rippers get more bonus skills in the riposte area.  To help  
understand that chart, round the numbers up to the nearest whole number.   Example, 
Decise 1.8 = 2 extra decise skills.  There is no way to predict exactly what your 
ripper's starting skills will be.  But you can get a good idea when your get your 
overview back by using the skill chart which is not listed here.  There is the luck 
factor, which is a random number that RSI gives to make sure no two warriors are 
exactly alike.  Some are blessed and get more than average skills, whereas others get 
considerably less.  Rippers in general seem to get LESS more than MORE skill in the 
luck factor part of character generation.
     Listed below are some examples of actual rippers in ADM and Primus.Please take 
note of the + or extra skills these rippers received with thestats they have.  Notice 
the amount of extra skills they received from high WIT and DEFTNESS.  The luck factor 
had some play in these startingbases.  These are also examples of when the luck factor 
gives you MOREstarting base skills.  The one at the bottom, with the -2 skills, is an 
exampleof bad luck.  The average skill base totals is +4.8 or 5 skills rounded up.That 
means that if you get a ripper with more than + 5 skills to his base,he is lucky.  
Less than + 5 he is unlucky, depending on his stats.  If theripper has less than a 32 
total points WIT and DEFTNESS, his chancesof getting less than +5 is MUCH higher.   If 
you get more than +5 skills withless than 32 points in your WIT and DEFTNESS total,  
you a very lucky.One exception is when you have a 30 WIT/DEFTNESS total and a 21 
WILL.Then you should get +5 or better to your skill base.  If not, you are unlucky.

     The numbers in the parenthesis are the + or - the projected skill base for that 
set of numbers.  Example:  +5 means that he got 5 more than the average projection.  
Pluses are good and minuses are bad.
     A simple method to see whether or not your ripper was lucky is to add the WIT and 
DEFTNESS together.  If it is above 32 then you should get + 5 as an average, and any 
more than +5 is lucky.  The higher the WIT/DEFTNESS total the higher the average.  
This is a quick guesstimate to see if your ripper was unlucky at getting a good number 
starting skills.  It is not an exact way to tell.  You can tell more accurately by 
using the skill chart that lists the skill bonuses, and the style modifiers.
     Good WIT statements for a good ripper include high order ATTACK, DEFENSE, and 
PARRY.   An initiative statement is nice, but harder to come by for a ripper, unless 
you give up one of those 3 up there.  If you get ATTACK, DEFENSE, PARRY and INITIATIVE 
high order you have a GREAT ripper.   Rippers almost always get some kind of Riposte 
statement.  Riposte isn't really as important as those 4 up there are in the long run.  
Decise skill is meaningless to a ripper. 

ARMOR
-----------
     Rippers should wear heavy armor at the beginning of their career.  It is  better 
to run a ripper defensively or `scum' him for awhile until he gains more skill.  When 
he starts getting his experts in defense and parry, then you can take off some armor.   
Rippers are more like to DIE in their first 10-15 fights than later on when they have 
more skill and experience.
     Some people don't like playing defensively, and run them offensively at the 
beginning.  Rippers are long term projects and are not ready for this.  They lack the 
skill and experience to do this in the beginning.  For this reason, and the fact most 
people don't put much armor on them at the start of their career, is why so many 
rippers DIE.  Putting heavy armor on them and playing them defensively, increases the 
ripper's chance to make it to ADM ALIVE.  I've put rippers in ACM and APA in basic for 
their first 15 fights.  It keeps them alive and gets them learns without affecting 
their performance.

Weapons
-------------

     Your ripper's favorite weapon is VERY important.  Rippers have a very limited 
number of weapons to choose from, but do have some good ones.

     This is a list of ripper weapons.  They are listed in order of which is best to 
which is worst according to a poll of 58 ripper mgrs.

1.  Scimitar -- The best ripper weapon, without question.
2.  Longsword
3.  Epee -- I wouldn't advise using this weapon in Basic.
4.  Shortsword
5.  Shortspear
6.  Longspear
7.  Hatchet

     Using that chart above, you can tell whether or not your ripper got stuck with a 
lousy favorite weapon.  Down below is more info on ripper's favorite weapons.

Out of 44 parry-ripostes, the following is a chart of the favorite weapons they got:  
EP (11), SC (8), LO (8), LS (4), SS (7), SH (6)
     Notice that most got the top 3 ripper weapons.  Just hope your ripper doesn't get 
stuck with a lame weapon.

Off-hand weapon
------------------------
     Rippers do better with 2 weapons than one.  In ADM, a ripper can use either one 
or 2 and still be effective.  Shortswords and hatchets are the most effective.  
Daggers and shields are OK, but not really good in ADM.  If you have a ripper with 
high enough deftness, twin longswords or scimitars can be devastating.  Rippers have 
an unusually high chance of being ambidextrous.

Strategy- Using tactics
-------------------------------
     Rippers in general don't react well to tactics.  This is agreed on by most ripper 
managers.  They can use lunge, dodge, response and parry to some effectiveness.  Out 
of 44 rippers, 3 got Lunge, 6 got Riposte, and 3 got Parry as a favorite tactic.  
Riposte tactic is lame, and should never be used on a ripper.  He ripostes well enough 
without that tactic.  All it will do is penalize him in other important areas.

Strategy- (favorite rhythms)
-------------------------------------
     Unlike other styles, the ripper favorite rhythm is used more closely.  Most 
managers use different strategies in basic than they do in ADM for their rippers.   
They play it more by ear in Basic, and stick mostly to the ripper's favorite rhythms 
in ADM.  Unless, of course, they have very bad rhythms for favorites.  Then they may 
go back to playing it by ear.

Below is a graph of 44 Parry - Riposte's favorite rhythms.

A. L. -- O. E.      VL         LO         MO        HI         VH   TOTALS
VL                   3          1          2         0          0      6
LO                   2          1          2         2          0      7   
MO                   2         19          0         1          0     22
HI                   2          0          5         2          0      9
VH                   0          0          0         0          0      0
TOTALS               9         21          9         5          0

     As you can see, most of the favorites for a Parry Riposte fall in the LOW 
offensive and moderate activity range.
     To give someone an example of a basic strategy, I will give you an example below.

MIN      1         2        3       4        5         6        Desp.

OL       2         2        2       4        4         3           7
AL       2         2        2        4       4         2           7
KD       5         5        5        6       6         5           5
Att     RA----------------------------------------------->
Pro     HE----------------------------------------------->

     You can experiment with other strategies, and might even check out how your 
ripper likes tactics.
     In ADM, I'd stick with the favorite rhythms, unless they aren't working for him.

Best style match-ups for a ripper in basic are: PR, TP, BA, PS, WS.
Worst in Basic are :  SL, LU, AB, PL, ST.

Best style Match-ups in ADM are: TP, PR, BA, ST, PS.
Worst in ADM are : LU, SL, WS, PL, AB.

     Well, that should be enough information to get any manager started with a good 
ripper.   If you need more information about rippers or anything else about DM, 
contact me.   I can be reached via e-mail at 103260.3347@ compuserve.com or you can 
Diplo me at the Joker's Wild 2 in DM 75.  I hope this helped someone.

Cheers,
Sir Jessie Jest
