Sailing to Skaithvarn:

     The wind dropped at the end of the first day and didn't pick up the next morning
as expected.  The ship just sat still in the water--as far as Raoul and Jeri could
tell--with its sails flapping limply.
     "In a logical world," Jeri muttered, "if the wind stopped blowing AGAINST us,
we'd be able to make progress."
     Raoul grinned.  "Not much logic here, doll!"  He glanced toward Goff and
sobered.  "I just wish he'd stop looking so worried...."
     Berdan, the ex-assassin, who had vanished into his cabin as the wind dropped,
now reappeared.  He had some sort of small brass box in his hand.  "We're in
trouble," he announced quietly.
     Before the Fratsfan could elaborate on that, Goff came toward them from the
steering area, and he looked more worried than Berdan.  "We're in trouble," he said.
"We're lost--"
     "How can we be lost?" Jeri demanded, her voice rising.  She looked around
anxiously.  The water looked much the same in every direction.  The sky had the kind
of thin, milky overcast that turned it to a sheet of glaring white, with no one
direction obviously brighter than another.  "The Trier's not that wide, can't we just
sail west until we come to Skaithvarn, and then figure out whether we're north or
south of Istoreth?"
     "Tell me which way's west, and I'll do it--even if I have to row," Goff said.
     "Ah."  Berdan nodded and held out his brass box, which they could now see was a
compass.  Or had been a compass.  The needle under the glass dome swung lazily around
and around, though the ship was not moving.  "I presume your ship's compass is now as
useless as this?"
     "Yeah," Goff admitted.  "It--"
     There was a sort of ripple in the air, not something to be seen, but only felt
as a shiver across their skin.  The compass needle whirled and steadied, indicating
north as being to the right of the ship.  A breeze from the north ruffled the surface
of the water.  Goff's two crew members leaped to adjust the sails.
     "Can you explain any of this?" Raoul asked.
     "No, but it's happened before," Goff said grimly.  "There've been reports of
this kind of thing--becalmed and the compass doesn't work, then eventually the wind
and the north come back.  And some ships have been lost entirely, like maybe they
never did get their bearings back--"
     "And KNOWING this, you still set out to sail to Skaithvarn?  Are you CRAZY?"
Jeri demanded.
     "What should we do, cower in our houses and wait for the Grey Witch to make
everything safe again?" the manager demanded.  "One ship in twenty, maybe, has
reported losing the north for a while.  Only one in...a hundred, or maybe more has
failed to come back.  It's a gamble, but heck, LIFE is a gamble."
     One of the crewmen had climbed to the very top of the mast and was examining the
horizons with a spyglass.  "Land ahead!" he reported.  "Looks like the Volarbyn
okay!"
     At Raoul's questioning glance, Goff said, "Highlands just north of Istoreth."
     "Ship coming from the north," the lookout added.  "I don't recognize her
shape...."  He continued to stare northward through the spyglass.
     "And that's the flip side of the problem," Goff said as he headed for the
steering area.  "Somebody getting lost from the Other Side, wherever that is.
Sometimes they act like pirates.  We may have a fight on our hands."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARADI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, WILD CARDS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ever take one of those 
association tests?  You know, he says black, you say white.  Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. 
Try this:  Flop.  NATURAL DISASTERS!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow 
off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  SWIFT CURRENT is now ranked 14th with a 
2-1-0 turn.  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I 
repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 4000 BLOWS moved up 5, to 5th.  A team with purpose!  
A team with the skill to back up their boasts!  Getting a 4-1-2 their first time out 
is POWER BROKERS.  I've seen sore losers on my day, but the sword bait known as WING 
HOVE were really in sorry shape after getting a 0-5-0 their first time!  What's with 
WETBOX?  He actually beat CLUB CULTURE's THE LIMELIGHT, and walked away with 67 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at REDLANDS PELETON while they watched 
GENEVIEVE clobber IRREVOCABILITY.  He lost 18 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Another fighter (TOO ICKY 11-8-0) challenged another 
Duelmaster (SCUMBAG 21-6-2).  Life goes on.  Try as she might, TOO ICKY wasn't good 
enough at persuading SCUMBAG to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't 
it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into 
the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was WILD CARDS.  In my day, no team with a 653-594-23 would scare 
me off!  What's the problem, 4000 BLOWS?  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, HEADROCK!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, ROBERT ROY, but you have to pay 
your dues.  Being challenged by ACUTE, 24 points above you, is dues.  ACUTE left the 
match looking worse than when he went in, after ROBERT ROY, with a 1-0-0, walked all 
over him.  LORD OF THE O RINGS didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she 
received from THE HOLLOW of THIEVES GUILD, who is 24 points below her.  THE HOLLOW 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he lost to LORD OF THE O RINGS and ended up 
with 27 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the 
others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, BLOODSUCKING FREAK.  That's what a 8-7-0 
gets you.  So SHADOW SIGNS sent GORILLA ENFORCER to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  
Plenty more fighters where GORILLA ENFORCER came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, 
Spyreporters...  Some people are wondering why R.J.G. sent ROCK BOTTOM (3-1-0) to the 
Dark Arena.  Just be glad you're not on their team.  SWEARY SHNAPP of DEATH STUDS VII 
didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 17-17-0, that's a good sign.  Now it's 
dead.  Better to die a quick death in the prime of life than to endure an eternity of 
constant pain, eternal boredom...  Does BLACK FRIARS agree?  Someone told ARSEHEAD 
that KUNGFOOLERY never Bloodfeuded, that it'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure 
whoever misled you is right sorry.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Ganolous -- If you wish to show me disrespect at least use my whole name.  You are a
coward. -- Mordraith

Slough -- You had me concerned, ya did.  Hey, don't ya love when you teach so well?
-- Bowguss Aims

Teacup Terrier -- Not too bad for a little rug rat...and Teacher.  I should try this
again, thanks! -- Smirlin

Nappy Dugout -- OUCH!  That is by far my funnest fight and I had to go and lose.  And
where does the reporter get off saying I was savagely defeated.  You got lucky with
that little sticker of yours is all. -- Headrock

Cepl -- Great ID#.  That's about it. -- Il Wampyre

Ed. -- At least my name's not an abbreviation.  Or something. -- Nuln

     Oh, I don't know.  I'd say your name IS something. -- Ed.

Underground Beat -- I think it's safe for you to come above ground now.  You're very
good. -- The Ayl'm'er, whose apostrophes don't mean a damn thing dammit

Prime Minister -- Nice to meetchya, Mr. Prime Minister Sir.  You run a very nice
country up there. -- Winker "Not a T#$S Thinker" X

Rob Roy -- What is there to say that hasn't been said before?  You're type should
have their tonsils removed with a rusty fishing hook, dipped in lemon juice and then
sewed back on. -- Dr. Monkeywoman

RUGS -- Do you offer any sort of a sliding scale preceding the T$%S? -- curious
manager type at large

Here is a list of some managers looking for TOGS partners:
Ghoti of Ogres Are Us at anx@peoplepc.com
Armalias of Forgotten Realms at armalias@aol.com
Seraphim of Golden Knights at seraphim53@aol.com
Seraphim has been out of Duelmasters for awhile and wanted me to let everyone know
that.  Good luck to you all and please let me know when you find your T#%S IV
soulmate. -- Ganolus

Hombre -- Ok, leg warmer boy, we need to get this fighting each other stuff out of
the way right now!  You wanna piece of me!?! -- Ganolus

Has anyone seen Nulnita around?  I wanted to see if she has aged well since the last
TOGS.  Hopefully she has gotten rid of that ridiculous mustache.  Probably not
though, about the mustache I mean, I hear the animals at BOBS quite enjoy it. --
Ganolus

FONZ -- At first I thought Soultaker was my Aradi Nanny, but then I realized that
both of his shoes together don't make a size 11.  Thanks for the reminder, Snotty.
You could probably rent yourself out as a Golden Scrod Nanny if you're still looking
for work, Chromie. -- Ganolus

What's up, Anti?  No TOGS this time around or are you just waiting to make a dramatic
entrance? -- Ganolus

Deathstud -- I was gonna write some wickedly funny stuff about the resemblance
between midgets, monkeys, and yourself, but then I realized that I'm not worthy.
Congratulations T-Deathstud-C. -- Ganolus

All -- We Wimps are preparing for the TOGS IV.  One way is to dump our poor guys in
the hopes of getting something good in return.  With this in mind check out how we
cleverly killed off Bamboozle in the F2F.  Now we can look for a replacement for this
Lunger who did good damage and had normal endurance and was 11-9-8-17-17-5-17.  He
was only learning a little over two skills per fight.  With this move it should be
obvious to all that our manager skills are unsurpassed. -- Wimpy

All -- In addition to the above, Scumbag has just moved on to ADM.  We wouldn't want
to have him around for TOGS because of his poor record, skills and stats.  WS, 20-6-
2, 11(1)-13-11-15-17-5-13,  BS, MO/LO, Ad EX in Initiative, Parry and Defense.
Master in Attack.  Good Dam & End all else normal.  Maybe we can get some good wimps
before the TOGS?. -- Wimpy

Shuriken -- You certainly did.  But you are a great teacher.  How about we fight
again?  You challenge me so it is an upchallenge and then teach me another 5 skills.
Ok? -- Arsehead

Lord of the O Rings -- You are scum. -- Dingbat

Smoochy -- Thank you for the TV challenge.  The timing was perfect since I am moving
on after one more fight.  My one winning blow was not with my favorite, but it
worked.  I hope you continue to get TVs. -- Scumbag

Onomotapoeia -- You are on the wrong team.  There is nothing elegant about you.
Whoops, that's eloquent isn't it?  I thought I had you in minutes 30, 31 & 32 but you
were too scummy for me.  I am going to try again and challenge you with the idea of
cutting down my armour weight.  I hope it goes through. -- Cerote

All -- Heya guys and not guys, Origins and Gen Con are finally over and done with so
I should be back next turn and ready to send out my chumps for some more heinie
stomp-receiving. :) -- Anti-Ralph

Anyone have Crow's email address?  And if not, anyone need a T#%S partner?  Uh, well
Crow and I did pretty ok the second Togs we were in. :) -- Anti-Ralph

Nuln -- You didn't drink all the eggplant smoothies while I was out did you?  You
know I need my vitamins...sucking this hard is strenuous. >:P -- A/R

Snotto -- [looks at above p-ad] There ya go pretty boy, I set ya up.  Swing for the
fences. :D -- Antius Ralphius

Death Stud -- Good thing you didn't make Gen Con, the RSI booth was set up on a
platform and even those of us taller than lawn gnomes had to look up to talk to
Sandy.  Kind of felt like talking to God...which doesn't bode well for my soul if it
goes the same way. :) -- Anti-Ralph

Sandy and Lee -- HI! :) -- Anti-Ralph, occasionally called Jason

FONZ Aradi Nanny -- I hate you, you horrible nagging hag! -- Death Stud

Scumbag -- Wow, I thought I won that fight between us.  I didn't realize until I saw
the newsletter that the last crit was yours.  You can sure take a beating.  Congrats
on the throne, you earned it. -- Smoochy

Trancendentalism -- I like my meat tender and easy to cut, just like yours was.  My
compliments to the chef. -- Sweary Shnapp

The Dark Arena is my friend.  I love the Dark Arena.  Please send me some quality, my
friend the Dark Arena.

Eloquent Knights -- That Crow fellow, he sure liked your team, didn't he?  I hear
that you guys are going to make him an honorary member. -- Death Studs

FONZ -- All fear the power of "The Shocker!"

Oh my GOD!  Was that a Ben Wa sighting?  There must be a tourney or some sort of
contest coming because he doesn't just play DM for fun or to be around his friends
any more....

Nuln -- .... -- Death Stud

The Greek Guy -- Don't think that you can just come in here killing everyone's
warriors, you bastard!  Don't make us sic Adie or Street Legal on you. -- Aradi Death
Police

Shadowgate -- Thanks, it's good to be back.  I appreciate you throwing a couple
challenges my way, especially one or two that I could win. -- Death Stud

Lanister -- Welcome to Aradi! -- Death Studs

Lar'eh Walker -- (mournful look)  I heard the arenamaster say "Walk," and I guess I
got the wrong idea.  Sometimes it's hard being a dog in a man's world. -- Lummox

White Raven -- (jumping up and down and barking)  I knew I could do it!  That's my
airspace you were violating, and I STOPPED you! -- Boone
P.S.  Nothing personal.

Smirlin -- You big meanie!  You think because I'm small (I'm smaller than I look,
actually, because this human form is all illusion) you can take a mean line with me.
We'll see about that--there will be other times. -- Teacup Terrier

The Spotlight -- Bright lights always confuse me.  It's a nasty people trick. -- Bull
Doggam

Lazy Eye -- Hmm.  Puzzling.  (circles his opponent three times, sniffing cautiously)
But definitely there's SOMETHING catlike about you. -- Sirius

Headrock -- No!  That is a VILE slander perpetrated by the cat-loving Commissioner
for Races.  I am one hundred percent dog, and a little more some days, but they don't
recognize Man's best friend.  Oh, no, cats, mice, ducks, but not DOGS. -- Bull Doggam
the ill-used and put-upon

Bamboozle -- What a silly idea!  No one could see my stunning self in the dark. --
Sirius

The Aylmer -- Humans have brains?  I would never have guessed. -- Boone

Nuln -- In my next life?  Oh.  Uh...that might be a problem, because of me being an
immortal Lord Protector and all. -- Spot the slightly worried but with naturally warm
legs

All -- I bring the team Wing Hove to live and compete in fair Aradi. -- Indimar
Fallon

the Aylmer -- You have it all wrong.  I am the lord of the OTHER o-ring.  On your
knees and worship the brown eyed cyclops! -- Lord of the o-rings

All -- Tremble in fear for Snotman and Anti-Ralph have joined together for the TOGS.
-- Snotman

Dingbat -- Great fight.  I love those close ones where each guy is close to giving
up.  They are even more fun if I win. -- Lord of the O-Rings

Headrock -- Ditto.  And even more fun if I learn three skills and win using my backup
dagger. -- Nappy D
P.S.  Thankfully I found a weapons that I have the stats to use.
P.P.S.  Even if it isn't suited to my style.

Kik-Butto -- When lightning strikes, the cowardly curl up in fear of the rolling
thunder.  When it strikes three times you have...Triplicate Thunder!

Quicksand -- Hmmm, 5 skills, a rating and an easy win.  I suppose your palsied, liver
spotty, balding manager was happy with that.  But I have nothing to say. --
Griznashoppa

Rip Rap -- That, my friend, was an ass-whuppin'.  Tell all your friends that I'm
giving them out for free. -- Mistress Bombtronic

All -- Top team, second team on the move and two guys on the most popular list.  How
is all that possible with a team that sucks as much as mine? -- Snotman

18 July 2003
To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.
                               --*  The Firm *--
                    Sungod -- Sadists F2FII -- 62
                    Dark Spirit -- Unknowns XX -- 15
                    Youngblood -- Wensinwasin -- 43
                    Tripwire -- Of Wolf and Man -- 1

26 July 2003
     Citizens of Alastari, a bright dawn has risen.  While you slept, a pernicious
force has entered the once-fair City of Aruak.  It fought alongside their treasured
warriors, it drank with their fans, and it slept with their women.  Now the masks are
coming off.
     Warriors, be afraid...be very afraid.  After years of Andorian managers ranting
that Aruak is the safest city in Alastari, the Frothingslosh Syndicate has selected
Aruak City as the home for its next epic 'contest'--Murder by Numbers II.  Our spies
have selected the warriors for extermination, and the executioners have had several
months to prepare.  Now a new age of darkness will descend upon Aruak, as the
Syndicate and its allies bring an entirely new level of competition to the arena!
Downchallenges!  Assassinations!  Small poodles as hors d'oeuvres!
     The Murder by Numbers II 'rules' will be announced next cycle.  However, we
invite all managers, from all corners of Alastari, to come to Aruak City and take
part...in one way or another.  Help defend the honor of a long heralded haven for the
pure, or join the forces of change in their siege of the ice-cream and cake
stronghold of the Dukes of Nerf-Dueling!
     This exercise is not for either the faint of heart or the weak willed.  Blood
will flow, brains will leak, and beer will be chugged.  Either way, we welcome you
with open arms and gleaming blades.
     This public service announcement has been brought to you by Frothingslosh Epic
Contests (tm), the number 86, and the letter 'K'.

The Frothingslosh Syndicate

           *     *     *     *The Third Annual Turf War*     *     *     *
     Yes, it's time again for alliances to go to war!  TW3 will be held in DM 47
(North Fork) at a date to be  specified later--right after Crip's Incomprehensible
Contest is over...but I'm sure everyone wants to get their teams there soon!  Here
are the rules:

1.  Each alliance must have a leader declare the arrival of his alliance.  The leader
    will be responsible for verifying any and all teams/managers who declare to the
    alliance he/she is leading.
2.  Each manager, team declaring for the contest must have approval of the leader,
    donate one Roll-up Certificate ($5) to the prize pot (send it to me by diplo, by
    snail, or a note to customer service), and declare his/her team by diplo, p-ad or
    snail.
3.  Each team may declare one warrior as champion.  All points scored by a champ are
    double!
4.  Prizes are as follows (mostly...there WILL be some things added as the prize pot
    grows with entry donations--this list is not final!)
    *  Highest scoring alliance -- Rename Arena 47 for a period of 6 months, one half
       of the total prize pot donated; roll-up certs.
    *  The Alliance with the most returns from the DA will get to re-name the DA
       monsters for a period of 6 months.
    *  The alliance with the most warriors listed as style masters will get to pick
       the Alastari city/arena to host the next Grand Tournament.
    *  The warrior with the most front page honors/awards will have the Arenamaster
       named after him for a period of 6 months.
    *  The Alliance with the most front page Honors/Awards will have the honor of
        picking the *slow* arena to host the Fifth Annual Turf War.
    *  The team with the most listings as Style Master will find out the favorites of
       one of their warriors.
    *  The warrior with the most listings as Style Master will fight at my expense
       for five turns (I will transfer to the manager's account).
    *  The Alliance with the most kills will be able to re-name the stand-in warriors
       for a period of 6 months.
    *  The warrior that scores the most total points will fight at my expense for 5
       turns (I will transfer $7.50 to the manager's account).
    *  The team that scores the most total points will receive an extra share of
       roll-up certs from the prize pot.
     There may be more categories to come, and the prize pot still has to be
divided...I'm open to category/prize ideas--and further donations to the prize pot.
     The contest will run for *TEN* turns; prizes will be awarded at the end of the
11th turn.
     Scoring will be as follows:
* 5 points per fight, doubled for each of the following conditions met:
     -- Two Alliance     -- Champion
     -- Challenge        -- Two Champions
     -- Bloodfeud        -- Challenger losing
     -- Kill
     (Note:  DA losses are exempt, but DA wins will be *tripled*!!!  Ex:  Happy
Slasher goes to the DA and dies, no points are lost.  If he wins, his team scores 60
points!  If he was a champ, he scores 120 points!)
     Use the following chart to calculate scores:
Conditions Met:       0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7
Points Per Fight:     5    10    20    40    80   160   320   640
* Awards/Honors and Style Masters will each be awarded points also.  Find the total
number of each (do note add Awards and Style Masters together) and consult the graph
below.  Champs that score an award or style master count as two.
     1 --   5      7 --  320
     2 --  10      8 --  640
     3 --  20      9 -- 1280
     4 --  40     10 -- 2560
     5 --  80     11 -- 5280
     6 -- 100     (x2 for each extra)
Note -- These categories *count as "triple"*--they will be figured for each team,
*AND* again for each alliance *as well as* for each warrior!
*  Each and every mention in the Spy Report is worth 5 points...period.
*  TVs will be scored on the same scale as Awards/Style Masters, but the total points
will be x10.  TC's will be scored as TV's, but x10 more.
Number of TV/TC's          Points Scored (TV/TC)
     1      50/ 500
     2     100/1000
     3     200/2000
     4     400/4000
     +     x2/ x2 (for each extra)
     Each alliance will start with 5000 points, scores for *fights* will be added to
the winner's total *AND* deducted from the losers.
     Come  one and all, defend your turf and the honor of your alliance...or your
own!

1 August 2003
     Assurnasirbanipal invites you to Talcama to participate in the third BATTLE
ROYAL contest.  It is a Delarquan contest so brutal that even some of Talcama's most
notable managers will refuse to participate.  The rules are simpler than any other
contest:  You may not avoid any other contest team.  There are no silly rules for who
can and can't compete.  Any team in Talcama is eligible to compete.  The scoring is
also quite simple (+1 for a win, +1 for a kill (+1 for the win), -1 for a loss) and
the first team to reach 25 points is the winner.
     Scoring will be live--the results for the turn posted in the newsletter.  The
winner will be able to fight their contest team in Talcama for free for 6 months but
more importantly will win a contest against some of the best managers who play the
game in one of the hardest contests in the game.
     First turn for BATTLE ROYAL 3 is Talcama Turn 465, which is due August 30.
