                                      "Avatar"
By Johans Johans, Sagamaster of the Desolate Empire and Bard to Archmage Wasby the
Great, Dark Knight of the D.E.

     The magic summoning circle pulsed with arcane power.  Wasby the Great would work
magic of epic proportions in calling upon the pit fiend Chareos to do his bidding.
He had never before tried this spell and was excited to feel the magic flow through
him, filling him with ecstasy.  He barred the door to his laboratory and looked upon
the magic circle with determination.  Wasby began to chant the words of power....

     He awoke lying on a warm marble floor.  Feigning unconsciousness, he tried to
gather himself.  The last thing he remembered was binding Chareos to his will when a
flash of red power had clobbered him.  The flash seemed to take the form of curving
horns.  Whatever had happened, one thing was certain.  Wasby knew he was no longer in
his laboratory.
     A voice boomed throughout the chamber, echoing with a force felt in his bones.
     "I know you're awake so stop pretending.  Rise and acknowledge me."
     Wasby climbed unsteadily to his feet and surveyed his surroundings.  He was in a
palace of gleaming white.  He spied a window and studied the terrain.  The land
looked barren and bleak, with a reddish tint that encompassed the land and sky.
After taking everything into his memory for escape, his eyes fell upon the speaker
who had commanded him.  He gasped in horror.
     The being in front of him resembled a minotaur, but had to be twenty feet tall!
Instead of the face of a bull, a face of exquisite beauty looked upon him.  Curving
black horns three feet in length swept out from its brow.  Wasby had never seen such
muscle development in any creature.  The end result conveyed the presence of such
power and malevolence that he almost fell to his knees.
     "Yes, recognize me for what I am," the mighty one said with a sneer.  "Look upon
all that I rule with awe and fear in your mortal heart.  Are you not impressed?"
     Wasby now noticed that shapes were materializing around him.  Devils of all
sorts appeared before his eyes and added to this were the cries of torment and
anguish that arose to fill his ears.  He realized in that instant where he was--the
underworld, land of the dead!  He also realized who stood before him.
     "Osiris, Lord of the Underworld, I bow before your power, " Wasby said while
sweeping himself flat on the marble floor.
     "Yes, I thought you would, mortal," replied Osiris.  "Are you ready to feel the
touch of my torment and know true pain?"

     Wasby leaned against the stone wall in his bedchamber, breathing heavily.  After
what seemed an eternity of torture, he had escaped!  He had broken free of his bonds
in a moment of chaos when a fallen solar had entered Osiris' throne room and tried to
lead an uprising.  He had made it outside the throne room and cast his word of recall
spell.  After being attended to by his aide Fredredo, he slept....

     The dark Knights sat together in their war room.  Located in the Desolate Empire
fortress outside of Fratsfa, the Knights were glad to see Wasby alive.
     "It's been over four months.  I thought that we'd never see you again," said
Heathen.  "I had to talk Toker out of marshalling the forces of the Empire and
recalling Goat from his mission to use his magic to find you."
     "I still think we should've," replied Toker.
     "Well, I'm back now and okay, so it's cool," Wasby said with a grin, "so I'll be
back to my usual tricks, not to mention--"  He stopped with a choked off breath.  The
other Dark Lords jumped to their feet and rushed to his side.
     Toker looked to Dok Sik for help.  "What's wrong with him?  Is he sick or
something?"
     "No," replied Dok Sik, who suffered from every malady known to man.  "If he was
sick or diseased I would have recognized it right away."
     Wasby looked up and spoke in an unfamiliar voice, gravelly and deep.
     "Not sick, but perfected.  There's nothing any of you can do.  He who you know
as Wasby the Great is now an avatar among you.  I am Osiris."

                   Ghab's Recommendations for the Next Tournament

     Below are the suggestions I have for the next running of this style of
tournament.

(Note:  Please do not confuse the following recommendations for the current rules of
the tournament we are in, as they will have a similar look.)

Requirements remain the same.

New scoring formula recommendations (*denotes change):
Wins + (Kills x 2) - Losses = Base score*
Base score + Variant score = Total score

BASE SCORE POINTS:
Win = +1pt
Kill = +2 pt *
Loss = -1 pt

VARIANT SCORE POINTS:
Scout Win = +2 pts
Scout Loss = -2 pts
Scout Kill = +1 pt *
Scout Death = -3 pts*
Killing a Scout = +5 pts (cannot be claimed via a downchallenge) *
Scout Beating a Scout =  +2 pts (cannot be claimed via a downchallenge) *
Champion Win = +3 pts
Champion Loss = -3 pts
Champion Kill = +2 pts *
Champion Death = -5 pts *
Killing a Champion = +5 pts (cannot be claimed via a downchallenge) *
Stylemaster for a Turn = +1 pt
Duelmaster for a Turn = +1 pt *
This Week's Favorite = +1 pt *
Team Denoted as Avoiding the Most = -2 pts *
Bloodfeud Win = +2 pts (claimed by winner; killer or avenger) *

     Nix the +25 bonus points for a spotlight.  This is a battle that should be
fought with weapons and not words!
     Penalizing a team for avoiding instead of rewarding a team for being avoided
will keep avoids to a minimum and increases the strategy of placing challenges.
     The added points for Duelmaster and This Week's Favorite will help create more
competition for the throne at the top and promote the creation of lively warriors
(not scum).
     When I say "cannot be claimed via downchallenge," I mean that a warrior cannot
claim the points if THEY downchallenge.  If their warrior is beaten, or is killed,
when they do the downchallenging the points are still awarded to the other team.
     These are just my suggestions and I look forward to hearing any comments the
rest of you all might have.

                                        Ghab/Assassin Nation

                               Questers Contest INFO!

     Hello Questers, most teams either had a good turn 4-1 (4), or a bad one 1-4 (4).
A few in the middle, and the only undefeated teams were non-contest teams.
(Hoplites, 5-0-1, thank goodness for the rest of us that they didn't join our
contest!  10-0-1, decent!  The other was Barnabas at 2-0-0.  Now back to the
contestants!  Lady Fern made yet another push and has come within 7 pts. this turn.
Heathen better watch out.  Crip re-claimed his third place position and put Le
Pentarque back in his place. (4th)  *GRIN*  I dropped two places to seventh and lost
my champion to a new arrival.  Who is the manager of PIECES OF EIGHT???  Just
wondering!
     Well folks, you all can see the scores for this turn and they speak for
themselves.  So, until next time, good luck.

                    Questions!

     The only question I saw this last turn concerning the contest was addressed to
Heathen from Turak about naming a scout.  I too, will answer for the sake of the
contest.  You announce your chosen warrior (scout) in the p-ads, and state you want
to compete in the Quest.  That's it!
     If there are any questions, you can contact me at:  darkknighttoker@yahoo.com,
p-ads, or by diplo to Silver Knights (361).

                    Requirements!

1)  Only ONE team per manager entered in the contest.  Only one active team in
    Fratsfa during the contest, PERIOD!
2)  Only one TP on your team at a time.  (If it dies, then you may replace it.)
3)  You must declare (1) warrior as your team scout.  Points will not be scored until
    a scout is declared!!!
4)  You do not need (3) three warriors in the initiates class to compete.  FE does
    not play a factor for eligibility!!!!
5)  If you bloodfeud, you must use a different warrior each time to score the FB
    points.  (If a warrior is used twice, he will only be awarded the points for the
    win or point subtracted for the loss on the second bloodfeud.
6)  You must declare your team in the p-ads to be entered.
7)  A champion and scout cannot be the same warrior.
8)  Champions are not required (manager's choice).  Champions must be declared on
    their first fight of the contest!

Now to the scoring formula:
Wins + Kills - Losses = Base score
Base score + Variant score = Total score

BASE SCORE POINTS:
Win = +1 pt
Kill = +1 pt
Loss = -1 pt

VARIANT SCORE POINTS:
Scout Win = +2 pts
Scout Loss = -2 pts
Scout death = -5 pts
Champion win = +3 pts
Champion loss = -3 pts
Stylemaster for turn = +1 pt
Most avoided team = +2 pts
Successful Bloodfeud = +2 pts
Failed Bloodfeud = -2 pts

     Let's say (A) team goes 3 - 2 - 2 = 3 wins + 2 kills - 2 losses = + 3 base
score.  Team (A)'s champion won (+3 pts) and is style master for the turn (1 pt).
His scout lost (-2 pts) for a total turn score of +5 pts.
     Now, let's say team (B) goes 1 - 4 - 1 = 1 win + 1 kill - 4 losses = - 2 pts
base score.  His scout won (+2 pts) and the scouts win was a successful bloodfeud (+2
pts).  So, the total points for this turn would be +2 pts.  (There was no champion on
this team.)
     +25 bonus points will be given to managers that submit a brief history (5
paragraph minimum) including manager alias and stable name by the contest's third
turn.  These  points will be added to the team by T-210.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Still in a hurry.  Gotta practice.  Gotta practice.  Gotta prep and go after
those Crip Crap Killers, who are such cads.  You know the guys.  Give 'em an inch and
they ram it a mile.  Killers!
     Hot Honeysuckle is dead at the hands (and feet) of Athlete's Foot.  Why do we
allow diseased beings in our great city?  The Hot One was a beautiful babe (aren't we
all?) striker @ 10-6-9-14-21(+1)-15-10 with +3 decise.  As good as we get in the
thousands of applications to be one of us.   We will miss her.
     I have nothing else to say.  You know we love all you people--well, except for
the crap.
     Hugs and kisses
     Insolent Iris, Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon FRATSFA, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in FRATSFA, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--SILVER KNIGHTS.  
BOTTOM FEEDER after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and 
taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a team like 
victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as DIVINE DUELISTS can attest...  
Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but BRONZE KNIGHTS will tell 
you 18-17-4 is nothing to laugh at...  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, SHY 
ANN was winsome, after beating ORIGAMI ORC and seeing it lose 18 points.  CAULIFLOWER 
EARS found out that FRATSFA isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in FRATSFA is taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are FRATSFA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BLOOD AND GUTS!, 
alone and unchallenged.  The warriors of BLOOD AND GUTS! found their efforts at 
combat frustrated as ODIN'S CHOSEN apparently had more important things to do than 
fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, PANDEMIC is the most challenged warrior.  Word has it IGOR MALMORT 
suffered a romantic setback.  Note how he challenged TORMENT, 26 points his senior.  
TORMENT had a quite go of it, putting IGOR MALMORT in his place.  PULLED HAMSTRING 
challenged BLOODEAGLE!  Who says OTTO'S PARTS are just a bunch of wimps!  PULLED 
HAMSTRING of OTTO'S PARTS kept its wits as it subdued BLOODEAGLE.  My love of 
complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, SER ILYN PAYNE and 
MERCILESS MUM.  Are SILVER KNIGHTS unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought 
SER ILYN PAYNE showed great skill and promise when he overcame MERCILESS MUM.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Justice was served as 
MAYHEM fought AYDINDRIL in bloodfeud.  Well done, ASSASSIN NATION!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for FRATSFA?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Whoa, now, Fratsfans, looks like we got us a competition here!  Oh my!  Looks like a
top three within 6 or 7 points of each other, and another not far behind.  Come one,
come all.  (wink) -- Lady Fern

Barmy Bob -- You were such the gentleman.  Next time, though, we will really cut
loose.  I know many positions!  I do. -- Merciless Mum

Assassin Nation -- You're avoiding us?  You devious devil, you!  Keep up the good
work.  Now don't avoid us over at The Flower Shoppe.  No sir!  (wink) -- Lady Fern

Jack Sparrow -- I can't believe you talked me into doing THAT!?  You are one real
rapscallion! -- Crafty Crocus (queuing up for MORE)

Crip -- You seem to be getting serious now.  Poor Hot Honeysuckle.  And she was so
good to you guys.  Did you have to give her that rotten Athlete's Foot and waste her
away to nothing?  You cad! -- Lady Fern

Le Pentarque -- No mercy!  (wink)  You will note that Igore was greatly desired this
past round.  We'd never forget him!  Hugs and kisses.... -- Lady Fern

Salvation -- That was fun.  I know it hurt a little, so come over to The Flower
Shoppe and let me lick your wounds.  They say I am the very best at that!  (giggle) -

Igor...Igor Malmort -- You are THE MAN.  You just keep on going and going.  I want to
keep you all to my self. -- Insolent Iris

Toker -- You say the nicest things, you rascal. -- Lady Fern

Tarl Possinger -- Why, Hon, EVERYONE is welcome at The Flower Shoppe.  Did you notice
our advertisement last turn?  Your opinion of yourself is all in your head.  You take
care of that and let my lovelies take care of your body.  I'll just bet you are good
enough to take on two or three at once, you Stud! -- Lady Fern

Hey, Toker!  Are we allowed to have another Champion?  If so, our newest recruit,
Painful Pansy, will start her first fight in the arena this turn.  We would like to
make her "Champion".  O.K? -- Lady Fern and The Flower Girls

Expatriate -- Boy, I'm glad you're here.  With you in this arena, I'll never be in
last place! -- Tarl Possinger

Lady Fern -- After reading your want ad, I realize that none of my warriors meet your
qualifications, but I do! -- Mr. Possinger

Toker -- Bring on the bullies.  I'm a bully smasher! -- Tarl P.

Lady Fern -- Rhythms are a natural warrior's wake-up call.  True it'll let'm down in
the best of confrontational times...but the road that's paved early is paved true.
Long live rhythms. -- The Distiller
P.S.  We can, and do, stat-monger'm into our preferences according to style.  But
natural warriors with natural favs are the biz-words for the basic arenas.  And in
the long run seem to naturally speak up in the ads all the more for being so.  It's
like there's no baggage to confoozle em.

Tiny Terror -- Got my con raise, dubious consolation. -- Sheerie Siren, going out
singing

Merciless Mum -- I've bigger weapons, weapons that don't hit like lilies...wrapped in
sponges...gilded in sofa cushions.  And not hard lumpy cushions, mind you, I mean...
the plush ones that you can really sink into forgetting the affairs of the day. --
Barmy Bob, Troll

Bob Le Canadien -- I'd say the plowshare is the last thing I'm a hankering for. --
Origami Ork, Ork

Darek Olrock -- Darek?!?  Oil Darek? ...naw, can't be? -- Boggy Boggle, ...

Toker -- Da Bob here, specializin in barmy.  Thanks fer da gracious wishes.  We've
got hopes, we've got hiiiigh hopes, high apple pie in the skyyyyy, hopes. -- Da Bob,
representin Da Fair

Toker -- I sent a reply a few weeks ago and am sending another letter out today (3-
10-06).  Another rough turn for me, so I think I need to pay better attention here!
I'll be ok though--just settling in! -- Heathen

Expatriate -- I stand corrected!  Congrats on not only avenging your fallen warrior,
but in killing Sigurd as well!  Don't be insulted.  I'm just getting a bit
overzealous with my lead in this contest, enjoying it a little too much and being
arrogant--you see what it gets me:  3-6 the last two turns with the loss of two
warriors!  Consider me lightened up! -- Heathen Hatebred

Turak -- I learned many years ago not to take anything personally--it takes all the
fun out of the game!  If anybody takes anything I say personally then that's their
problem--I'm enjoying myself!  As for "bitter rivalries", they are the best kind--
things can get boring without a rivalry or two!! -- Heathen Hatebred
P.S.  A scout has to be declared in the personals on their first fight.  I hope
you'll stick around for the next quest for the best!

Ghab -- Six and a half actually--that half is very important since I believe I have
matured quite a bit in that short time!  You really have some nerve implying that I
am immature--I guess you've already forgotten that it was your unfounded accusations
against me and Staghorn that started all of this?  The irony being that even if I
were to triple the points you were complaining about and gave them to you there would
still be no hope of you competing with me in this contest!  Don't get too happy with

Mayhem's win over Guthhild either--that strategy was designed to not kill another of
Expatriate's warriors, as I'd expected a bloodfeud from him.  Guthhild will stomp
Mayhem in the near future, trust in that! -- Heathen Hatebred

Lady Fern -- Thanks for the compliments--every time it seems like I'm getting my feet
firmly planted I get knocked back down!  Oh well that's all part of the competition,
right?  I see you and Crip nipping at my heels though and I'm determined to maintain
my lead! -- Heathen Hatebred

Tarl P. -- A lover of all that's decadent?  To the contrary, I am a true
traditionalist, valuing culture above all things and promote a return to the morals
and customs that my ancestors cherished! -- Heathen Hatebred

All -- Good luck at the mail-in.  Represent Fratsfa well! -- Heathen

Insolent Iris -- Your boy Numb Skull isn't so gladiatorial anymore.  One question,
though.  You wouldn't happen to be the one who had a crush on him would you?  If so,
I'm sorry for your loss. -- Draghkar

Insolent Iris -- I hope that I continue to be your favorite "Dark Team." -- Turak

Malice -- I wouldn't recommend making that mistake again.  I was expecting to be
challenged by a TP.  If I got the jump on you that bad with the strategy I had in
place, you'd better hide when I'm set to go after offensive types.  You came oh-so-
close to pushing up daisies. -- Vicious

Toker -- I'm sending in a team spotlight with my recommendations for the tournament.
I'm open to commentary by everyone in the arena.  I think that the rules I am posting
would allow for a better tournament with less abuse of the systems in place, and
greater risk/reward ratios. -- Ghab/Assassin Nation

Aydindril -- I have buried Chaotic with his foot in his mouth.  He was a decent
prospect, but lacked the ability to take any kind of damage.  Long term he probably
would have petered out to be a 10-10-x type fighter.  The roll-up I got for him is
much more "interesting" as for win potential. -- Ghab/Assassin Nation

Heathen Hatebred -- [In response to your comments to Ghab]  Met Guthhild...squashed
Guthhild...can't wait to meet him again! -- Mayhem

Expatriate -- I shall try not to irritate you, Obi Wan.  Although it looks as if the
student has beaten the teacher.  No hard feelings, huh? -- Turak

Sheerie -- I'm still waiting to see that "destroyer lady" with the "battleship
weapon."  Let me know when she decides to make on appearance. -- Draghkar

Tarl P -- First of all, the Expatriate is not a failure.  He's just not very
successful at the moment.  And as for you, we shall see. -- Turak

Ghab -- Like I said:  "I will get mine."  I've kept my word.  Not so happy now, are
you? -- Aydindril

Absolute Grace -- You're next! -- Aydindril

Expatriate -- Don't give up on your team just yet.  They may still surprise you. --
Turak

Lady Fern -- I've lost two warriors in the last two turns.  I may need some soothing.
-- Turak

Lady Fern -- Your competition claim has been filed. I couldn't tell you about what a
warrior's weapon size is all about, 'cause I'd be lucky if they called me "average!"
*grin* -- Toker

Tarl P. -- I've always enjoyed a good smoke, and who doesn't love a good joke, but I
don't think I would even exist without a good Toke! -- Toker, smiling with lazy eyes!

Still -- I see my wish of good luck to ol' Barmy da Champ, cursed mine this turn. --
Toker

All -- Ser Artur Dayne:  SL  11-9-6-17-15-11-15, learned 2.3 skills a fight.  Master
Ini., Ex Rip, Master Attack.  Another passable warrior bites the dust, leaving the
Silver Knights to try and find a decent replacement! -- Toker
P.S.  Replacement wasn't too bad!  We'll see!

Heathen -- Bad turn for me!  Lost my Champ and went 1-4-0.  Yuck!  Ser Artur's
replacement wasn't awful, so I guess I'll give him a chance.  Your score should have
been 86 last turn, so I have fixed it this turn.  Keep handling business up top and
I'll keep doing my best to catch up! -- Toker
P.S.  You should have received the package I sent you by this turn.  It was mailed on
1-13-06!

Wasby -- Good to see you back.  Now make a push and let's see where we end up!  Who
knows? -- Toker

Heathen -- You know, I was looking back over some files, and on most turns where I
went 5-0, the next turn was almost always below .500! (2-3's and 1-4's)  Crazy huh!
It's all the Haters out there!  See someone do any good and they want to pull you
down!  (LOL) -- Toker (still GRUMBLING!)

V-I-C-I-O-U-S-! -- Since I use a template, I thought I may have overlooked the miss-
spelling of your name.  Nope, not the case.  My computer has it right, so it must be
an angry spirit, or a sleepy typist who keeps mangling it! -- *Toker*

Azrith -- It wadin't dat many pts down, jeesh!  You'da thunk I 'as dat Duel Mister,
'r sumtine!  Lord Davos, who's too much of a SCUM to be a real Lord!

Blackbeard -- Don't really have the right warrior to B.F. with and due to the
contest, can't take chances with much needed pts.  Do hope you and your stable stick
around 'til someone steps up that can avenge my newly buried champ! -- Toker, mgr.
Silver Knights (361)

Psychosis -- Damn I had you there.  You turned that loss into a win, that's for sure!
I should not have played around with my strats!  Oh well, good win! -- Ser von
Darkmoor, the overly-cocky!

All -- Please give a Fratsfa welcome to Ser Alain Stronghand.  He will be filling our
newly opened Champ spot for our Silver Knights stable.  May he bring honor and glory
to our beloved arena! -- Morik Manytales, Bard of the Silver Knights (361)

Heathen -- You're right, I've got plenty to do.  Now that everything is back to
normal with me, I should be back to my old, numb-skulled self.  I sent some info in
the package Toker sent you and a diplo in en route. -- Dark Knight Wasby the Great
P.S.  I'm ecstatic about you joining us.  Let the reign of the Desolate Empire be
built upon blocks such as us and our chosen brothers!

All -- It is with my heart full of pride that I return to Alastari and find that not
only has the Dark Knight Toker made the Quest in Fratsfa a marquee event full of
celebrities (I love you, Lady Fern!), he has also completed the dark rites with the
newest Dark Knight--Heathen Hatebred!  The Desolate Empire couldn't ask for a better
brother than General Toker, Dark Knight of the D.E.! -- D.K. Wasby the Great

All -- On behalf of the Bronze Knights, we vow to do all in our power to ensure that
a debacle like last turn's 1-4-0 never happens again! -- Lord Jon Snow, Commander of
the Watch, Barrenblade of the D.E.

Merciless Mum -- I thank you, fair lady, for the undue praise,  Uh, I do like some
sandwiches, but I'm not sure what your meaning is. -- Lord Jon Snow, B.B.

Merciless Mum -- Sorry, he's highborn, but I explained it to him so he'd understand.
(wink, wink!) -- Ser Steel Brightblade, Barrenblade of the D.E. (laughing at his
blushing commander Lord Jon Snow)

D.K. Toker -- Hey Brudda!  Good to be back in Alastari with the other Dark Knights,
I'll be by to tell about my exploits (which kept me from Alastari) over a bottle of
fine wine and a haze of sweet smoke!  Great job in running the contest. -- D.K. Wasby
the Great

All -- A new power is among you.  I have taken my place among the Desolate Empire.
Those who recognize Wasby the Great know that he is now something better, me! --
Osiris, Dark Knight

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
and give no quarter in War! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
