                                  "Heathen's Cafe"

     After a brief hiatus, the Cafe is again open for business and I hope ALL of you
will come down to enjoy a cup of coffee, perhaps join in the many discussions on this
game we all love!
     Recently a question was asked in private that I found worthy of sharing with you
in the hopes that all veterans and newbies alike will offer an opinion:  when is the
best time to stop using a tactic or should you always use a tactic so long as a
warrior is successful with it?
     Personally, I use tactics sparingly as it is, simply because I believe a warrior
will naturally do what they are designed to and tactics often make them focus in one
area at the expense of others.  If I do find success with a particular tactic I'll
use it only until that warrior has gained an expert in the skill that contributes to
that tactic and not more after.
     What do you guys think?  I'd like to hear from ALL of you!

                                      QUESTERS!

     Round four is in the books!  Will anyone slow down Heathen or Crip, who are
starting to open a wide gap.  Not me apparently.  My Knights have developed a mind-
set of going quite berserk, then sorting out the bodies later.  I find it quite funny
that Ser Jaime, dubbed "Knightslayer" is the only Bronze Knight without a kill.  Ha!
On to more important matters.
     Due to an error on T-209 (RSI's, not ours), both Blood & Guts and Flower Girls
were scored incorrectly.  The newsletter reported that Volatile Verbena (3536) had
defeated Igor Malmort (3594) who is the champion of Blood & Guts.  Apparently we
spectators were duped by exquisite mummery!  It was actually Igor Malmort who emerged
victorious.  So...Blood & Guts (365) receives +5 while Flower Girls (189) get (or
lose actually) -2.  Hopefully Lady Fern will realize RSI's mistake and not hold back
any...ahem...services that Toker or I might receive.  Not to mention the considerable
resources (legal or otherwise) boasted by The Consortium.  I think once I spied F.
Lee Bailey leaving the Flower Shoppe!
     That said, let's get on to the scoring for T-209:

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  FRATSFA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, ODIN'S CHOSEN 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by FLOWER GIRLS!  Way to go 
FLOWER GIRLS!  Uncool, BRONZE KNIGHTS.  I mean 0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be 
allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  THE FALLEN like really 
fought hard to move up to 12th from 19th.  Way to go!  What was the name of that team 
who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 17-14-1 you ask?  (Sure)  BLOOD AND GUTS!'s their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for SER ARTUR DAYNE?  SILVER KNIGHTS' 
proud of him after beating GARBLE GOBLIN and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  GARBLE GOBLIN's match with SER ARTUR DAYNE cost him a loss of 21 points!  
Was that a tear I saw in TORMENT's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't 
COLLAPSED LUNG fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of ODIN'S CHOSEN must be getting lonely. 
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't 
know what ICELANDERS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from ODIN'S CHOSEN, that's fer sher.  Can FLOWER GIRLS' INSOLENT IRIS be more popular 
than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  See if I ever 
talk to CAULIFLOWER EARS again!  INSOLENT IRIS was so low when He challenged he.  
Hhmph!  A lotta people lost a lotta money in a lotta bets, when CAULIFLOWER EARS 
challenged INSOLENT IRIS, 22 points below and lost!  Send 'im to the Dark Arena!  For 
sure, I was holding my breath when I found out OLD GRIM  challenged KYKENSTIENBURG.  
After all, haven't BLEAK LEGION and ODIN'S CHOSEN had a long standing duel in 
FRATSFA?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but KYKENSTIENBURG wants me to 
write about it since it won victory over OLD GRIM.  Satisfied?  SER ILYN PAYNE must 
not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged SOUL NOVA.  15 is 
a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought SER ILYN PAYNE showed 
great skill and promise when he was beat by SOUL NOVA.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I hear ASSASSIN NATION sent MUTILATE to the Dark Arena.  What, is that 
like not well-lit, or what?  HORRID HOLLY bloodfeuded (is that a word?) GUTHHILD 
MIDWALL for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  Hey you 
guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have 
someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Crafty Crocus -- My newest darling, would love to entertain any of you in her room at
The Flower Shoppe.  Come one.  Come all. -- Lady Fern

Heather -- Well, I cannot reveal information about my clientele--for confidentiality
reasons, you see--but I can say that sometimes The Flower Shoppe is a "holy" place,
if you get my drift.  And, sure, you should come on over too.  Perhaps I will give
you a personal sampling?  (wink) -- Lady Fern

Luminous -- I just love angels!  You really do know how to fly!  And didn't we have
fun?  I'm really glad that you like for me to be on top.  Come to The Flower Shoppe
and let's do it some more.  Yes! -- Rambling Rose

Toker/Wasby -- Why has Rambling Rose not been listed as Champion and reaped the
rewards thereof?  We Flower Girls listed her as Champion "replacement" on her first
fight in the arena. -- A puzzled Lady Fern

Gangrene -- It has been a looooong time.  How did you hold it back so long?  (wink)
You are such the Babe!  Girls just wanna have fun.  We Flower Girls know that so
well. -- Insolent Iris

The Elder -- I love older men.  And I love your style.  Can we do it some more?  You
come visit me at The Flower Shoppe and I'll do anything you want.  Hurry! --
Merciless Mum 

Shocker -- I'm glad you go in for that pain kind of stuff.  I am!  I can give and I
can receive too.  Did you like it?  Next time we'll do it at my place and I'm sure
you will last longer.  You'll see, Luv. -- Horrid Holly

"No sermon this month.  Too busy with funerals."  Rev. Bob, that was a classic!  We
love your humor.  (And that big weapon of yours too!) -- The Flower Girls

Igor -- She loved you too. -- Lady Fern

Heather and Odin's Chosen -- Just because she went in for that kind of stuff didn't
give you the authority to take her over the edge!  We'll miss her and her 10-8-11-21-
15-4-15 countenance.  Now some of my girls want to test Guthhild's pain limits.  I
don't think I can hold them back. -- Lady Fern

Verbena was perhaps a little too Volatile for this world.  Best wishes for the other!
Igor Malmort, who had his input error loss changed into a victory, but still has no
answer from Toker....

Tentpeg Troll -- I'm a barrel, so I have a lot of tasty blood to spill. -- Tonnelle

Hum, Odin did a good choice. -- Le Pentarque

Lady Fern -- My sincerest condolences on the death of Volatile Verbena--I've actually
been trying to AVOID killing so I didn't give up any bloodfeuds!  I will do my best
to prepare for Horrid Holly, as I suspect that's who Guthhild will have to face. --
Heathen
P.S.  Nice gain last turn by the way!

Wasby -- Thanks!  Let's just hope I can maintain that lead!  Your co-host spotlight
was obviously directed at me so I will cease any attempt at manipulation I may or may
not have been involved in immediately!  (smile)  Don't worry about Aryan Barbarian,
he served his purpose. -- Heathen

Toker -- Looking forward to response from you soon.  Looks as though I will have
another two years to secure my superiority here in Fratsfa!  (smile)  Seems like
awhile but at least I know when, huh?  Hope all is well with you and yours. --
Heathen

Crip -- I know, that's the problem!  (big smile) -- Heathen

Ser Steel -- Well fought!  Heathen sends his regards to you and your manager and
hopes to not meet up again! -- Bloodfeud

Lord Davos -- I was supposed to have the week off and thus was unprepared for that
fight.  Not that I would have done much better if I had been prepared.  I just don't
like it when Heathen tells me to take the week off and the Commission sends me out to
the sands of their own accord! -- Gungnirsdattir, grumbling pointlessly

Aubin -- Well, that's what I get for just standing there quietly, huh?  Thanks for
the skills! -- Sigurd

Le Pentarque -- Thanks, I've been fortunate thus far and hope it can continue, though
my learns haven't been all they could or should be either.  Hopefully the mail-in
will help!  Best of luck to you at the tourney!! -- Heathen

Ghab -- No, not spinach...uh...er...well, have you been visiting the Flower Shoppe?
You really should clean up a bit after visiting Lady Fern's girls! -- Heathen
Hatebred

Icelanders and Odin's Chosen -- It doesn't take a genius to see that you guys are
sandbagging the most avoided points.  When a team (Icelanders) sends two of its
warriors to the Dark Arena and the other warriors on the team are in little danger of
getting matched up against the team they are avoiding (Odin's Chosen), how does that
team (for the fourth turn in a row) still get marked as avoiding the most?  Simple,
the characters going to the dark arena are also avoiding the other team.  Win your
battles on the sand, rather than trying to abuse the system for points! -- Ghab/
Assassin Nation

This ain't Chimlevtal!

Collapsed Lung -- Ouch!  So when were you going to graduate? -- Vicious

Cauliflower Ears -- Grrr...you've got to graduate soon too! -- Torment

I wasn't expecting to get the invite this soon, as I only have 30 FE.  It's nice to
know your favorites when you get timed for a tournament you have the maximum FE going
into (Champions).  I already figured out that my favorite weapon is Broadsword.  Good
luck in the tournament, everyone! -- Mutilate/Assassin Nation

Toker and Wasby -- Hailsa!  I didn't send Skjald Borg to the Dark Arena but obviously
that's what the Commission decided for me.  My new scout therefore will be LIST BORG
and I will be making a strong comeback in this Quest!!! -- Staghorn, mgr. Icelanders
P.S.  Don't worry about the deaths, Wasby.  Let's just hope I can win a few
bloodfeuds!
P.P.S.  Why wasn't Skjott Hifna listed as my champion?  The declaration that was
printed on turn 209 was sent in with my turn 208 strategies so it was his first turn!

Lady Fern -- I really don't care if you're gentle or not, I was just being shy.  I
will be to see you and your lovely ladies on a regular basis. -- Dark Knight Toker

Heathen -- I apologize for being slow in getting those materials you requested sent
to you.  Now that I'm caught up in my school work, and finished my prepping for the
mail in, I will send them this week (11/02/05).  I see you're trying to run off with
this contest.  I wish you luck 'till the end. -- Toker

Le Pentarque -- I have resent that e-mail, I thought I had sent it.  All should be
rectified this turn. -- Toker, Co-host

Wasby -- Thank you for everything.  I will see if I can keep a top position in the
contest.  I know you and Dok Sik will do your best to get up here!  Let the blood
flow freely. -- Your brother in arms, Toker

Rev. Bob -- Still haven't heard anything from our missing co-host.  I don't know
what's going on with him.  I hope it doesn't take too long to get back to the game.
-- Dark Knight Toker
P.S.  Letter in mail!

Expatriate -- You know, I should have put a prize for last.  But since I didn't, just
knuckle down and handle it. -- Toker, Co-host

All -- I know it's still early in the contest, however, I plan on running this
contest again six months after its conclusion.  I would like any input that anyone
has about improvements, and/or ideas for the next one.  I really like it here and I
can't see this place becoming deserted again.  So, if it takes us to keep sponsoring
contests, I have no problem with that. -- Toker, hoping everyone feels the same

12 October 2005
Magic Man -- You are a fellow Canadian, are you not?  Where do you hail from?  I live
in Kelowna, B.C. -- Maximillian, 8,13, 28, 47, 54

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
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
