                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Godgetry might be good, but it isn't good enough.  You need skill and
experience, Godget.  Otherwise I'll just keep knocking you down.  Though not, however
disappointed the crowd, more than that, tempting though it is.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ROCANIS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  ROCANIS watched with 
glee as KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS got knocked off top spot by BLOOD BROTHERS!  What's with 
MALUS S'PROUT?  He actually beat STRAIGHT UP THUG's LOVEABLE LARRY, and walked away 
with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at STRAIGHT UP THUG while they 
watched JUAN THUG-A-LOT clobber WOODWORM.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Another fighter (MANDORALLEN 16-4-1) challenged 
another Duelmaster (BUCK FEVER 13-14-0).  Life goes on.  MANDORALLEN was reminded on 
the sands why BUCK FEVER is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was STRAIGHT UP THUG.  In my day, no team with a 49-35-3 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, RESCUE RANGERS?  What do people see in 
MANDORALLEN?  His 16-4-1?  KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS ain't talkin', but he's got 94 points.  
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if ZIPPER 
can return from the Dark Arena.  Who will dare fight CHUM BUCKET, after it returned 
from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 1-0-1 is 33, and has it points) MR THUG of 
STRAIGHT UP THUG got 13 points for removing another young punk.  Tough luck, KNIGHTS 
OF ROCANIS!  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight 
dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Lynx -- Huh, you just can't get enough of a beating at my hands, eh?  I don't know if
I should be flattered by that, or embarrassed.  When I figure it out, I'll let you
know. -- Malus S'Prout
P.S.  That was NOT a deadly bloodlust I was fighting with, it was a blood-BROTHER,
and not, so far, deadly.  Just to keep the record straight.

Mandorallen -- Hmphf.  Just about what I'd EXPECT of a golem knight of this wretched
place.  You don't learn and what's worse, you don't teach. -- Sourcrab

Francis Thug -- Well...I was tempted.  You're such an ongoing disappointment in the
gender department, you know.  But it seemed perhaps a little excessive as a reaction,
so I did try to hold back. -- Hawthorn
P.S.  Especially since there seems to be some kind of, dare I say, adventure
involving Ahringol!  Horrid thought, and I want to steer clear of it.  Therefore, it
behooves me to help OTHER people steer clear, right?
P.P.S.  If not Ahringol, at least the Spirit Land.

That Persistent Beggar had a head of solid wood.  So I turned it into sawdust.  What
the heck. -- Woodworm

Jakari -- Count on us to be here. -- Jorja and the Bad Apples
P.S.  Glad to be able to put a name to the manager of your team.

15 managers have announced for the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse!!!!!!  There is still 
time to join and make a name for yourself in one of Alastari's fiercest contests!  I 
must correct a mistake in the previous announcement.  I incorrectly called it the 
Slaughterhouse 2, but in reality, this will be the third installment of the 
Slaughterhouse!

HOW TO JOIN

*Find a Partner

*Declare your intentions in the Stormcrowe newsletter to enter before the first turn 
of the contest.  You may also email or diplo Master Darque.

*Each manager entering the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse must submit one (1) Team Roll-Up 
Certificate.  Only certificates will be accepted for entry.  All certificates 
submitted will be used during the course of the contest as prizes.

*RU certificates must be received on or before the first turn of the contest which is 
Stormcrowe Turn 263 (running approximately November 27, 2007).

RULES and SCORING

Rules and Scoring information for the Slaughterhouse will be posted every turn in the 
Stormcrowe newsletter beginning with Turn 260 and in a final all arena ad in 
November.

PRIZES

ENDURANCE AWARD:  One (1) +1 Bonus Potion will be given to every team that competes 
in 60 of the 65 contest fights.

KILL MASTER AWARD:  The individual manager with the most kills will receive a Limited 
Immortality Potion.  This potion may be applied to one (1) warrior.  He/she will be 
resurrected ONE-TIME if they are killed in Basic D2.

TOP TEAM AWARD:  Each manager on the winning team will receive the following prize 
pack for their Slaughterhouse Dominance:

*One (1) +1 Bonus Potion
*Favorites Knowledge for one (1) Warrior
*Undisclosed amount of Team RU Certificates

Special note from RSI on prizes:  All contest prizes must be used within three 
months.  All contest prizes may only be used on a living warrior on the participating 
contest team in DM 45.  The immortality potion may resurrect a warrior one time, 
after a death in DM 45 only, after which time the potion disappears.

NEED MORE INFORMATION

Rules questions and clarifications may be directed to Master Darque the contest 
coordinator.  He may be reached by email at rebelnerfherder at yahoo dot com or by 
diplo in DM 45 (Darque Forces-428).

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....
