                             Notes from the arena champ.

Warriors of Aradi,
     I am just glad I was able to hit the top before I got my invite.  It was a
battle every step of the way.  Some of the finest warriors in all of Alastari call
this crazy place home.  It has been an honor to cross blades with you all.
     Before Derrin and I head for the isle I thought you might like to know a little
more about us.  I am 13(1)-8(1)-10-17-17(1)-11-11 great dam, master in init & def,
adex att, ex rip.
     Derrin is 13(1)-10-10-17-9-13-13 good dam, master dec, adex att, ex rip & init.
     I ran open to challenges for my last turn.  Good luck to you all.

                                                                          Jamis

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARADI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CHEER-O-KEE'S was unseated 
this week as DEATH STUDS VII moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare 
with NATURAL DISASTERS' team record!  A 2-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 5th 
place ranking.  My praise to DEATH STUDS VII for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  WHISTLE PIG caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BULLY BOY and was 
awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SANDY IN 
THE MORNING put down JAWBREAKER VII, causing it to lose 12 points of recognition in 
the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, JAMIS has lost 
the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail VIPER LXXI, Duelmaster of ARADI!  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in ARADI seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARADI.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  4000 BLOWS is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently the 
stalwarts of CRAZY CREEPS are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  NIGHT HAG take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in ARADI.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it 
seems that ROSCOE posted a challenge against the more highly recognized RIP TORN.  
The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand ROSCOE dispatched RIP TORN.  Remember 
warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape the vagaries 
of this world.  This week arena veteran RIP TORN was slain, despite a 6-3-0 record.  
I must report the passing of KRAKEN, veteran of many duels.  9-16-2 final record Hers 
was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  This week in mortal passion 
ROSCOE let the blood of RIP TORN, sending one more soul into the void.  Retribution 
by FUNKY FOLK seems inevitable!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARADI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

The Crazy Creeps are sorry for their lack of participation last time.  I was
delivered a decree that Aradi was a FONZ only arena, and I did not realize that the
decree was unofficial.  The Crazy Creeps will get back to ignoring and demeaning
anything said by the FONZ this turn. -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

Nuln -- Yes the "That Warrior" thing was stupid and irrational, but that is the type
of thing that has become to be expected of you. -- The Crazy creeps Scribe
P.S.  Yes The Creepster was in attendance.  Wasn't he the one advising you to "save
your money"?

"Dilen, Pauly, Indimar -- You guys rock!  Hope that you all enjoyed your first FTF.
I was very impressed by how everyone did and look forward to seeing you all next
year! -- Death Stud"  As much as we hate to echo anything that rolls out of The
Stud's mouth, we Consortiumites want also to add that it was a GREAT pleasure meeting
you guys (and gals).  (finally)  You bring a lot to our passion, and we are glad to
be able to share this activity with you.  Well done for your first Face.  Very well
done! -- The Consortium Elders

All Max Max Return to DM Pool participants -- Due to recent communications from Mad
Max's publicist, we have had to add an option for "Mad Max finds excuse and doesn't
return at all."  We are sorry for the late change, but it was a glaring omission that
needed to be rectified for this pool to have any validity.  The only hitch is that if
you want to choose this option, the payoff is one gold for every one hundred gold
wagered.  All other bets pay even money. -- Death Stud, chairman of the Mad Max
Return to DM Pool oversight committee

Pauly, Nuln -- If you are going to adopt my cool word "reasty" please have the
decency to spell it correctly.  I know that poor spelling (and grammar) (and hygiene)
can increase one's standing in the managerial community, but please try to resist the
temptation. -- Death Stud

     Those things are only helpful in certain portions of the community.  In that
     portion responsible for seeing that your ads make it in and that your warriors
     fight, those are considered detrimental.  What a dilemma. -- Ed.
     P.S.  Reasty?  Does that have anything to do with increasing in volume due to
     the ingestion of sugars?

Crazy Creeps Scribe -- As always. -- the Studs

Pauly -- It was good to meet you, and congrats on your tourney and making it to "the
chair."  You will now need to preface your personals each turn with "Hello, my name
is Pauly and I am a DMaholic."  Kicking crack is nothing; this is the real deal,
baby. -- Death Stud

Dilen, Indimar -- Yeah, yeah, good to see you two again also and kudos to Dilen for
also making it to the chair.  That is a rarified experience, so savor it. -- Death
Stud

Nuln -- My thanks for your thanks.  Thanks. -- Studita

Did someone say Snot-Ku?
   Snotman or mansnot?
   We recoil from both, be sure.
   Must carry tissues.
-- Death Stud

Fonzies' -- Howdy boys, oh yeah, and girl, and pardon me Miss if at times I include
you as one of the guys, finally stumbled back this way.  We'll see how many cobwebs
if any my boys can throw off their first turn back.  All right D. Stud, would you
quit pulling on my jacket, I'm trying to write something here, I'll answer your
question in a minute.  Anyway, feels good to be back (I think) hmmmm, better read the
turn first.  Hi Ed!!! -- Barnabas

     And "hi" back to you. -- Ed.

Indy and the Brat -- Oh great, finally thought I got rid of you two, wouldn't you
know it, the brown nose king and prince somehow smothered their way into the non-
alliance.  <Oh that oughta get a laugh>  Anyway, congratulations boys, and for now I
do mean boys.  May the fun begin, oh and Pauly, just bite your tongue for now little
one, Barnabas is gonna have some fun and unless you want me callin' ya a certain
name, which I won't mention at the moment but it is a little lighter shade than tan,
just give me the reins.  >) -- Barnabas

     Ecru? -- Ed.

Studly Dudly -- What's up my old friend Death Dudly Do Right, how's things been
shakin while I was gone?  Hear things were getting boring in here so after all the
fan mail decided I better get back in here and liven things up.  Look forward to
helping you sharpen your skills once again. -- Barnabas

Painful Paulo -- Wow bro, here you been puttin' the punishment on folks, rumor has it
most of them are from that team called 1.  You know, they may start challenging you
back. -- Barnabas

Snot Van Winkle -- Hey wake up down there in the land of ooze.  Snotty, what's the
haps, brother?  Lookin' forward to some interesting thoughts from the mind of muck.
Still going by the alias of Slick every so often?  I'll look you up when I hit town.
-- Barnabas

Samwise -- Don't try and figure out what I'm saying, just kinda go with it, I usually
don't know what I'm saying.  Look forward to a little competition here and there my
friend from the east, hopefully you don't keep pulling these super warriors, that
kind of stuff does tend to get on one's nerves, well maybe just mine, if you do keep
pulling them could you challenge some of the other guys, I could give you a list. --
Barnabas

Ganolus -- Feels good to be back (again, I think) will know after reading this turn
but look forward to hangin' with ya'll once again.  May the fun begin! -- Barnabas

Hombre -- Been a while, my friend and mentor, look forward to the coming days on the
sands. -- Barnabas

Pauly -- Well if it isn't old Sweet Pauly Purebred and his sidekick Indimara Baffoon,
how in the hell did you weasel your way into this one?  You two cease to amaze me,
you conniving idiots (oh great, we're gonna be called the Fonzidiots now).  Oh this
isn't good. -- Barnabas
P.S.  Congratulations, my little buddy!

Soulie -- Thought I was gonna forget you didn't you?  Oh hell no, how can I forget
someone like you, it's not easy.  Well old buddy, we'll see what happens when I hook
up against your band of bullies.  Good luck to us all! -- Barnabas

FONZ -- Remember, it's all in fun, nothing I have said is true or false, just fun!!!
Got that Indy, Pauly, don't take anything personal boys, just roll with it. --
Barnabas
P.S.  I'll do my best also.  For some reason I remember it much darker in Aradi,
hmmmm, got to find my shades.

Inferno -- Almost forgot the blazing one, time to fire off and get with it amigo.
Dr. Death wants to party, so here we come. -- Barnabas

Death Stud -- I predict Mad Max will last 2/5ths of a turn. -- Nuln

Jamis -- Why do I feel like a can of tomato soup that's just been opened? -- Leg
Warmer Lust

     Too many McScrod sandwiches late at night? -- Ed.

Rickon -- It's my way of welcoming you to the FONZ. -- the Avenging Scrod

Dew Drops & Weeping Willow -- I see a theme of water here.  You certainly made us
cry, and made our manager DA both of us.  Congratulations!  This is the end of our
co-written personal. -- Jane King, Goat & Bloodlust

RUGS -- I give you the last thing I have of any value...a life-time free-pass card at
Scrodbucks in exchange for something(s) small & slow & smart.  Ok, and my Garpage
Pail Kids collection. -- Nuln

Lady E -- Did I already apologize for killing off 3/5 of your team?  If not let me
say it again, I am so sorry for killing off 3/5 of your team.  My sources in the
Gladiatorial Commission tell me someone might have his proxy license revoked. -- Nuln

All -- All right, time to kick over the anthill. -- Pauly

Nul to the nizzle -- Hmm.  To stay away from your warriors, I will require five
bushels of scrod, and on the first day of every month for three years, you must bring
me the head of a pig, not weighing less than ten pounds, nor is it to weigh more than
twenty.  Good day. -- Pauly

Death Stud -- Hey, unless you've paid the $20, what I do with my donkey in the
privacy of my own home, is my business! -- Pauly

Indimar -- Well, congrats on the two grads.  Hopefully you get some good
replacements.  You're gonna need 'em.  Interpret that however you see fit. -- Pauly
P.S.  Actually, interpret it like this.  I own you.
P.P.S.  Reistification complete.

Dayne -- That's what happens when you fight a baler. -- Oso

Sandy In The Morning -- That is NOT baler. -- Weezy Dang

Wow, it has to have been at least a couple of months since the AWaWFAFP has printed
any slanderous comments about me.  I guess the editor is losing his reistiness. --
Pauly, who probably should just paint a bullseye on his chest.

Jamis and Derrin -- Congratulations on getting your invites.  You will be sorely
missed here at Wing Hove. -- Indimar

Leg Warmer Lust -- It's final then...I own you. -- Jamis

Jim Panzi -- zi?  Shouldn't that be sey? -- Derrin

D Stud -- I don't have a donkey (Pauly is more of a jackass) but I did have to get
off the sofa to write this.  Is that good enough? -- Indy

Pauly, Pauly, Pauly -- Reisty?  Way to embarrass the family...AGAIN.  It is known to
all that the word is reasty.  Try to keep up. -- Indimar

Oso -- Looks like you lucked out again. -- Dayne

Word on the street is that Barnabas may be dropping into Aradi for a visit.  Barnito,
are you out there? -- Indimar Fallon

Good dogs always come home again, and here we are. -- Spot and the Red Dog Gang

24 January 2007
The Council of Lords would like to propose a rule change in ADM and Primus.  We
propose that Lord Protectors ranked "Grand Champions" and below (ADM) and "The Tower
Guard" and below (Primus) be allowed to fight in the Dark Arena.  This would not
impact the top rankings or title match.  Any managers who never got his fill or shot
at fighting Gateway monsters would have it as an option.  We believe it might spark
some interest in the ADM/Primus realm for some managers.  If interested, speak up in
the newsletters or on forums under the "rules changes" thread and let RSI know.  This
could even be something to try for 12 months and then be re-evaluated.  What say you,
managers of Ghea? -- The Icelord sends....

     HDFA Mission Statement
     "Show me the money!"
     This is the battle cry of a newly formed collection of like-minded individuals:
The High Dolla' Free Agent$.  We are not a tough guy alliance:  No...we offer no
battle without reward.  We search for victory and the prizes and accolades that
follow.  We are motivated by winning and will freely use whatever means necessary to
obtain our currency.  No stuffy rules, no mandates, no constitutions, no leaders,
only a few objectives:
     1) Win as often as possible
     2) Celebrate freely and revel in your victories; the more meaningless the
victory the more we celebrate.  Highsiding and chest thumping are encouraged.
Ostentatious endzone celebrations with prop usage are encouraged, regardless of
fines, penalties, suspensions or arrest by local authorities.  It is important to let
your opponent know how great you are; more importantly, you must let your own
alliance mates know how great you are.
     This is a 1-up alliance, let the performance of your fellow Free Agent$ motivate
you.  If a Free Agent wins a TV, win 2; if a Free agent wins a contest, win a more
prestigious one.
