                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't know what happened to us two turns ago, but it seemed only fitting that
Open Sesame should once again reacquire the throne.  Unfortunately, the commission
seems to think I am too good to stick around.  I see from my last fight, my foe has
at least an advanced expert and now gets to graduate.  I also note that all of my
teammates have at least an advanced expert rating, and none of them are getting to
graduate.  But poor little old me, without an advanced expert rating to speak of,
gets to receive his retirement certificate with 38 fights of good service at the Isle
of the Eye.  Don't believe me, well, here's my particulars.  12(2)-17(2)-15-11(2)-
21(1)-9(1)-9(2) Total Parry, likes the Small Shield, with a Very Low/Low Rhythm, with
a tendency to learn riposte skills.  But even with that, still no advanced expert
rating.  I do have 3 experts, in Parry, Defence, and Riposte, but nothing beyond
that.  A total of 66 skills gained through training skills and raising stats, and
with 9 attacks skills and 7 Decise skills learned, I supposed I'd have to be closing
in on a rating there sometime soon too.  But I guess I'll never find out now.

Sweet Air
Open Sesame
Duelmaster of Snowbound.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in SNOWBOUND this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  The OPEN SESAME guild has had a 5-0-1 turn 
and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing 
can lead.  And let's see, INGLEMORT JULS fought MRS. VAUGHN and gained 29 points and 
contributed to MIDDLE WAY 6's 2-3-0.  EVALON ELKHORN has lost to TRASH CAN, falling 
12 points, while helping make DRUID'S GROVE a 0-3-0 turn.  This turn SWEET AIR Dark 
Arena Challenged CARAVAN RAIDER in what was SNOWBOUND's Title bout.  Defending its 
title for another turn, SWEET AIR kept DARK ARENA's warrior, CARAVAN RAIDER, from 
claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the DRUID'S GROVE stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on SNOWBOUND, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided DRUID'S GROVE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was OPEN SESAME.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was DARQUE FORCES II's 
warrior ADRIANNE.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  The grave that OPEN SESAME had dug for SWEET AIR may yet be filled 
with the body of CARAVAN RAIDER.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  SWEET AIR 
lives still!  I wish to point out for DREAMS OF KADATH that there is but a single 
turn before DRUID'S GROVE and their warrior, DOMJON, will get away with killing LUPUS 
HORRIFIQUE.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in SNOWBOUND, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Gerrick Grimm -- How Sweet it is that we graduate together. -- Sweet Air

Evalon Elkhorn -- You aren't supposed to swing with the entire Elk, just the horn 
next time. -- On My Way

     Unimaginative.

Cantex -- If you don't grow up, you'll never be able to leave the neighbourhood. --
Trash Can

Cass -- You and Kirla are sort of clueless, are you not? -- Hoops

Quord -- Can't speak for Chandler High, but in the olden days at Cannelton High
School, the homecoming included a queen-crowning at halftime by the football players
in their already grubby uniforms.  "We'll be true to the school that we love so well;
may our hopes ..." -- C.H.S 

Gobert Hinny -- Hoop-ee; another loss for you and another win for me. -- Extrusion

Cass Dolan -- I am so glad you asked.  Now you know first hand.  (wink) -- Hoops

Trash Can -- You meanie.  I have "can' in my name too, and yet you had to overcome
me.  Humpf! -- Cantex

Domjon -- I am clearly no match for one of your skill and style. -- C.H.S.

Petra Quord -- You do time out! -- Mrs. Vaughn

Extrusion -- Eh?  Listen, you!  Don't go extruding that on ME, okay?  I don't NEED
it. -- Gobert Hinny
K.S.  Whatever it is.

Hoops -- I'm too big to hoola.  Besides, I figure it's indecent.  Decadent, at the
least.  My gramma was Shewish, well, she still is, and SHE wouldn't do something like
that!  If it's too risk-que-ay for her, it isn't something *I* want to do at all. --
Cass Dolan

Mrs. Vaughn -- (shudder)  You remind me of my fifth-grade teacher! -- Petra Quord

A Cult Member?  What's he doing as a standby?  He should belong to those Kadath
people.  But it doesn't matter, I'll mash him anyway. -- Inglemort Juls

Dylath-Leen -- How can you be a golem?  You should be something EXOTIC, and golems
are ten a copper around here.  Heck.  I was THIRSTING for exotic.  In a manner of
speaking.  Not exotic liquor carried in a hollowed out ruby, or anything like THAT.
-- Kirla Lorvin

Coach -- Well, I didn't grow up there, and for me, hoops are either skirt supports or
things for lascivious dancing. -- Kirla Lorvin

Coach -- Well, obviously, because I'm half Shewish.  I don't do that weird stuff. --
Cass Dolan
P.S.  It gives me a position of moral superiority.

Our congratulations to Sweet Air and Garrick Grimm. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Mrs. Vaughn -- Ma'am, I never wanted to be a gladiator.  I got drafted.  My ambition
is to be a ballerino. -- Lorus Long-oars, Ambitious Guard

20 September 2007
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....
