                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail and well met, Loopholes!  I am off to Andorak as reigning Duelmaster and newest 
Lord Protector for the Andorian and League Arcane empires.  I was a slasher, started 
life 7-12-12-21-17-10-5 ended  9-13-12-21-17-10-5.  I got the great axe (ugh!), 
mod/mod, slash tactic and  learned attack.  I leave Advanced Master decisiveness, 
Master attack,  initiative, Advanced Expert riposte, and Experts parry and defense.  
I bid  you all adieu and good luck.

The Spotlight

FINALLY IN THE SPOTLIGHT

League Arcane ROCKS!

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LOOPHOLES brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ANGRY NAKED MAN win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
ANGRY NAKED MAN beat INDIMAR'S FAXMACHINE and INDIMAR'S FAXMACHINE lost 11 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LOOPHOLES may be 
getting bland, as THE SPOTLIGHT stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
LOOPHOLES?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

22 October 2004
                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
