Lethal Anatomy run by Nuln.

If you're interested in T#%S IV but you don't have a partner, the following managers
are looking for partners:  Seraphim(seraphim53@aol.com) and Berylstar of Bums-R-
Us(ataft@columbus.rr.com).  Just let me know if you'd like to be added to this list.

Time is running out to get your teams together.  The next mail-in run November 1st
and T#%S IV will begin the first Aradi turn immediately after the next mail-in.  So
far, the only entry fees that have been paid are mine and Wimpy's.

To pay your entry fee, have RSI send me 2 gift certificates for team set-ups from you
or send $10 to Andy Salveson, 9175 Greenback Lane #111, Orangevale, CA 95662.
Hopefully we'll end up with a few more teams participating before the start of this
thing.  Look for the prize breakdown to be posted very soon.  Please e-mail me if you
have any questions regarding the Tournament Of The Golden Scrod.  'Til next time....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARADI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Who can explain it?  Not you, 
not me, not LOCK-OUT's opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 20th to 
8th.  Looking for a good fight, confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't look 
at INGRATE WHITE NORTH, cause they dropped by 11.  Ever take one of those association 
tests?  You know, he says black, you say white.  Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. Try this:  
Flop.  BUMS 'R' US!  It seems so recently people were saying KUNGFOOLERY was washed 
up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 3.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's 
with CHOPSTICKS?  He actually beat WINTERHOLM's GREEDYGUT, and walked away with 24 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MY MOORPARK MOB while they watched 
ROBERT ROY clobber NAPPY DUGOUT.  She lost 14 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  What a role model for ARADI's young 'uns!  TYCANE becomes 
Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure ARADI is excited about 
ACHONDROPLASIA, the new Duelmaster from ELOQUENT KNIGHTS.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, CLUB CULTURE! 
Management must be dealin', as the boys at ELOQUENT KNIGHTS ain't reelin'!  CLUB 
CULTURE's mad!  What do people see in TEACUP TERRIER?  Hers 5-6-0?  RED DOG GANG 
ain't talkin', but she's got 21 points.  Taunt your opponent CEROTE!  That was my 
lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 16 points!)  ACHONDROPLASIA 
should have an easy win.  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, 
ACHONDROPLASIA!  He can't set himself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see CEROTE 
lose.  Keep challenging up 28 points, KUNG POW KICKIN', and I won't have to write 
about you much longer.  BOONE always accepts those kind of challenges...  KUNG POW 
KICKIN' found one way to advance:  challenging BOONE and losing, but getting 2 
points.  No brain, no pain.  CANTWELL didn't quite know what to make of a challenge 
she received from DECHALA of BROKEN SPIRITS, who is 23 points below her.  DECHALA 
perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was slain by CANTWELL and ended up with 
7 recognition points.   
     Warriors of ARADI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  DECHALA found 
herself really over-matched when she faced CANTWELL.  DECHALA found herself grossly 
dead at the end of the match.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  
You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Karate Wrecker -- Hey man, sorry about that rough treatment.  It's been a while since
I fought and I guess I was a little over excited.  I hope that shot below the waist
didn't make you any less of a, ummm...male.  Good luck. -- The Greek Guy (the
warrior)

Hi all!  Wow!  It is real good to be back!  I can see Aradi hasn't changed all that
much since my last time here.  I hope to have a long and prosperous stay. -- Mad Max,
mgr. I Hate Them

Soultaker -- The first round is on me!  Lead on, baldy. -- Mad Max

Death Stud -- If you can find a high chair you're welcome to come along as well. :)
-- Mad Max

AAaaarrrrgghhhh!!! -- 0-5-0 turn?  What happened?  I am going to have to go back and
check the replays. -- Ghoti

Snotman -- Don't tell your T#%S partner about the Spocker.  That could be very
dangerous with him spreading bermuda grass seed all over Aradi and all. -- Ganolus

Tycane -- Congrats, man!  What took you so long?  Oh yah, all of Death Stud's
warriors had to die before you could take the throne.  : P  Just kidding.... --
Ganolus

Hombre -- What's up with you?  You win when you're throwing and you lose when you're
trying to win!  You've got some serious issues to deal with before T#%S IV starts. --
Ganolus

Anti-Ralph -- Ok, so it's not that dramatic.  How 'bout predicatable entrance? --
Ganolus

Sir Indimar -- Welcome to Aradi!  May the Golden Scrod shine upon you as it slaps you
in the face and slips away from your grasp! -- Ganolus

Snotman -- That's funny!  I think you've started a new expression in Aradi.  "TOGS
isn't over 'til Chromie sings!"  What do you think?  Are we allowed to change a
fellow Fonzian's manager name if they never participate in the personal ads? --
Ganolus

Death Stud -- I forgot about the whole censorship issue.  The next time I want to
talk about midgets and monkeys openly, I'll just sign my name Snotman.  That will get
it through for sure. -- Ganolus

     It all depends on what you want to say about midgets and monkeys.  If you're
     talking about empowerment of the differently tall and the differently specied,
     you're fine.... -- Ed. feeling cantankerous

The Aylmer -- 'Backup' dagger.  I don't think that word means what you think it
means. -- Scabby

Elephant/Marbury -- Hmm, smart move doing a stat train on a downchallenge.  Wouldn't
wanna waste possible learns on an up challenge now, would ya?  Actually I can see how
doing that might pad your record; you were obviously not very good considering.  And
then you don't get big increases in points to put you where you might actually be in
danger. -- CEPL

MC Cain -- Nice weapon, well...'cept when you were waving it in my face. -- Syda
Hammie

Corot Elemir Plotan Loramir -- CEPL (the "Acronym")

Mr. Oblivious -- Ummmmmm...what just happened here? -- Smirlin

Genevieve -- I am embarrassed. -- Headrock

Winker X -- Smirlin is my name.  Ogrish I think.  Unlike Winker X, which sounds like
an infamous sand filtered Texas beer...what ever a Texas is.  Too bad they don't take
the sand out when they are done filtering it. -- Smirlin

Nappy D -- Worse than losing to a bunch of little dagger pricks IS the fact that none
were crits.-- Headrock (Hmm, I think I am in your range again.)

Snotguy -- Heh yeah, I am so the master of the straight insult and the double
entendre.  Heck if you look up "entendre" in the dictionary you'll find...er words
and stuff, maybe a picture.  Not sure, too lazy to look.  But thanks. :) -- Anti

Nuln -- That's alright, there was more than eggplant in those smoothies if ya catch
my drift. >:P  -- Anti

     No, don't tell me, was there cat hair? -- Ed.

Smirlin -- Huh?  Fight?  What?  What the fig are you talking about? -- Mr Oblivious

Gargoyle Prince -- The idea was that you were to put Dingbat out of her misery.  What
happened? -- Wimpy

Lumox -- Are you going for a new record?  Two suggestions:  First, do not buy your
weapons from the low bidder.  Second, tie your back up weapon on with quick release
knots. -- Cerote

Silk -- No hard feelings.  Just thought I'd teach you a lesson. -- Cordelia

Newcastle -- We are coming. -- Black Friars

Tycane -- Congrats on your Duelmastershipismtudinal thing, oh mighty one. -- your
fawning, worshipful fans

Tena Marie -- Nice try.  I hope I can keep staying a step ahead.... -- Dr.
Monkeywoman

The Limelight -- *steam emits from eardrums* -- The Aylmer

CEPL, Smirlin -- We apologize for harshing your names.  We think they are fine and
upstanding ones, worthy of namageness.  There, it is said. -- the Aylmer & Winker X

The Hollow -- Talk to the hand. -- Winker X

Cerote -- (whimpering a little)  But I was trying to be such a GOOD dog.  I really
didn't MEAN to chew that shoe.  I was just TASTING it. -- Lummox

Quicksand -- (floundering)  How do I get OUT of here? -- Bull Doggam

Lord of the O Rings -- I am an experienced tugger of war, you see.  And O rings are
one of the things I've trained on.  You can't get me that easily!  I'm a Dog Star. --
Sirius

Nappy Dugout -- I love digging things out!  Bones, garbage, rose bushes.... -- Boone

Shuriken -- Ah, but if you can't hit the broadside of a barn with that thing, how do
you expect to hit a... Teacup Terrier?

Dark TOGS -- Hi I don't know who your manager is which is why you are getting the
nice version of this.  Welcome to Aradi.  I hope you enjoy the TOGS.  I have no
personal grudge against you.  I laughed so hard when Mistress Bombtronic killed
Jordan.  Jordan had a huge style advantage and it was your challenge and Jordan got
wasted in one minute.  That is about the most satisfying thing that can happen in the

     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.

     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
pests.
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.
