     It was a good party.  Everyone came, and it spilled out of the Red Fish into 
Snowbound's central square and oozed into the Bucket of Beer, the Silver Axe, and the 
Ice Troll inns as well.  Within an hour of sunset, and the sun set very early in 
Snowbound at this season, nine-tenths of the population of the town was involved in 
the party, and more revelers were pouring in from the countryside around.

     On a table in the Silver Axe, Telgas Falgarsson, the Not-From-Khalhums Dwarf, 
was declaiming a long poem in Dwarvish.  Nobody was listening, but he didn't seem to 
mind.  At least, until other Dwarves, led by Super Grover of Open Sesame, climbed 
onto the bar of that establishment and began roaring out a competing ditty, complete 
with flying axes.

     In a corner at the back of the Red Fish, the Karnhorn Deserter, Karzanj, was 
explaining to anyone who would listen what was wrong with Kurukar and why that city 
should be attacked by all right-thinking people.  Until Arlen Abeli of the Middle Way 
came along and hit him over the head with a stein.

     In the middle of the town square, Lorus Long-Oars, the Ambitious Guard, was 
demonstrating the use of an oar as a substitute for a quarterstaff; Dagrum One-Leg, 
the Persistent Beggar, was getting the worst of the encounter.

     Less obtrusive were the people who were merely drinking and singing, even the 
ones who couldn't carry a tune with a wheelbarrow, and this included most of the 
gladiators from Snowbound's arena, and a large portion of the fishermen who sailed 
out of Snowbound's harbor, as well as most of the hunters and trappers from inland.

     Someone (suspicion fell on the Userous Merchant) caused two oxen to be butchered 
and set to roasting on the town square, which everyone agreed was a good idea, 
although it might have been better if he'd owned the oxen himself, or at least asked 
permission first.  Someone else, not yet identified, although the owner of the 
slaughtered oxen came under suspicion, decided that the night would be improved by 
fireworks, and promptly set fire to the Userous Merchant's shop, which stood next to 
the Bucket of Beer.

     And a fine time was had by all.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SNOWBOUND games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week OPEN SESAME went 3-2-0 to move up 3 
in the rankings.  My praise to DRUID'S GROVE for their 4-1-1 week this time out.  
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  HOLLAN INNIS caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EXISTENTIAL 
BLUES and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, HOLLAN INNIS put down EXISTENTIAL BLUES, causing him to lose 16 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time out VANWAFEA made hers bid for the throne as 
she challenged TOM SMITH DISEASE in an all out contest of skill for possession of the 
title!  Although VANWAFEA made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious TOM SMITH DISEASE.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SNOWBOUND.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  DRUID'S GROVE is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding DRUID'S GROVE.  Indeed it was OPEN SESAME.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  ORION GRIMM take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in SNOWBOUND.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in SNOWBOUND as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
