     Heeeey-lo all!  Excellent turn last time for some, not so good for others...;-)
     The highest score fight was 16 points, and there were too many of those to
mention.  Still no 128 point fight...I wonder if I'll *ever* be able to award that
old nasty rollup to anyone.  128 points for one fight will definitely be hard to hit!
Only a really "killer" champion could ever hope to do it...Bull Market has the only
chance right now.
     I'm going to take this opportunity to declare Battanar'ritezu V for TCB, with
Vrock as champ.  Take heed.  Now, on to the scores:

     Ok, folks...hopefully the Typist will highlight the *No Champ* entries as I've
so painstakingly done, so all who have not declared a Champion may see--and do so!
Champs may be declared until the end of TW 2, but new teams will not be recorded
after turn #134's p-ads!
     Final note...um...that's all folks!

                                     THE KILLERS
                               a Cartel-A-Gram Special

     I like that Heathen is keeping track of the W/L records, but I like to take note
of the killing tendencies of teams and alliances, so this section is dedicated to the
bloody alliances of this Turf War.  All you need to qualify is have a kill registered
to your alliance.
                            Alliance Name           Kill%
                            The Amalgamation        7.14%
                            EPA                     4.21%
                            Fascist Federation      9.09%
                            The Vendetta Cartel     2.40%
                            The Company             5.00%
                            Manic Depressants       6.81%
     I'll do another update in about three turns to see if there have been any
drastic changes.  From what I have seen over the years, about 6-7% is normal for most
managers.  There doesn't seem to be any correlation between kill tendencies and
record as the extremes of each instance are represented in the top four slots of this
contest.  Enjoy!

                             THE REVENGE OF THE DANDYMAN

     Dandyman lay in the gutter, his broken fingers throbbing.  Damn that wench
Debbie Dahmer, why did she have to step on his weapon hand?  It would be hard to
swing his war hammer now.  "Queen of the World, my ass," he mumbled under his breath.
"I'll show that girlie," he thought.
     He could not believe how badly his fortune had turned.  He began to replay the
events that had led him to this, his all time low.
     ABRAXIS had spotted him a the Asylum's training ground.  The crowd was chanting
his name, "Dandyman!  Dandyman!  Dandyman!"  This made his invincible.  ABRAXIS asked
him to join the Madmen; he was to replace the renowned Leslie Borden.  He had been so
excited as it was the best thing to have ever happened to him.  How could it have
become such a nightmare?
     His first fight should have been a glorious occasion.  Heck, it was one of the
lowly warriors of Don King, one of the lowliest managers in the game.  What went
wrong?  Dandyman would never know, but he lost in well under two minutes.  His second
fight should have also been easy, a sure victory, the best style match up possible,
and third fight was the straw that broke the camel's back, and had resulted in his
broken fingers subsequent.  A rookie fighter on his managers he had lost to no one.
Now he lay in the gutter.  The Queen of the World, Debbie Dahmer, had crushed his
fingers.  ABRAXIS had told him to go to the Dark Arena, and he was being replaced by
a woman, Sharla Manson.  About then Leatherback stepped up and started to color a
skull on Dandyman's platemail with a black crayon.  This was too much; he had to do
something.
     ABRAXIS had ordered him to the Dark Arena to die.  Well, let's just see about
that now!  Also, this Sharla Manson, a woman, how dare she dream of replacing me!
Dandyman began to plot.
     The first thing he needed to do was intercept the Dark Arena orders.  It should
be easy, the Crimson parchment wrapped with a black ribbon.  ABRAXIS tended to use
Orc messengers, so all he had to do was...
     Dandyman lay in ambush.  So far the three messengers that had left the
Guildhouse had not carried the Dark Arena orders.  But wait!  There it was, with
three other scrolls as well.  He hefted his Great Axe, struck a powerful blow,
cleaving the Orc in twain.  Quickly he opened the scrolls, and there is was, his
death warrant.  With haste he shredded the scroll.  What to do?  As he read the other
scrolls an idea formed and began to become clearer to him.
     He pulled out a piece of crimson parchment from his cloak, and from the scroll
bound for Morya, placed the names of all the males from team Slayer.  He thought to
himself, "Let's see how your team does with only two warriors and both of them
women."  Goodbye Xander, Spike, and Jonathan.
     He then replaced Sharla Manson's name with his own on the orders to Stormcrowe.
His evil grin, spanning from ear to ear, almost hurt as he swung his Great Axe in
anticipation.  He then slunk back into the alley.
     Dandyman sat in the H.E.A.P. (Hedonitic Escape Above Perversity), the gathering
house of the C.O.L.  There was no better place in all of Alastari to find brigands,
Orcs and assorted scum.  He glared at the goblinoids across the table from him.
Things were going according to plan now.  They had agreed to kidnap Sharla Manson for
a keg of ale.  Dandyman would take her place in the Arena, and by the Gods, this time
he would win a fight!

     Cranked and Smoked were in the pawn shop looking at the pile of hash.
     "Man, this vacation is sweet," Smoked said.
     Bud came in.  "Fire it up!"
     Cranked nodded.
     Smoked put the has in a bowl and fired it up.
     "Look at it go," Cranked said taking a deep breath.
     "Oh yea, up in smoke," Cranked choked.
     Smoked leaned back in his chair.
     Acid came running in, "Woa, look," he said waving the smoke away.  "Suicide is
coming and..."  Acid stopped as the door came open.
     "Alright," Suicide said.  "Vacation is over."  He pulled out a scroll.  "I am
putting some of you to the arena so calm yourself down."
     Bud choked off, "Uh I'm in," he said falling to the floor.  "Look stars, star
putting up the fixtures."
     Suicide looked up.  "He's done, now for you two get ready."
     Cranked smiled.  "I am going to um..."  He looked around and smiled.  "um...
something," he said real slowly.
     Suicide looked at the scroll.  "Now the team champion is in."  He looked at Bud
who was asleep and probably Cranked you go also.
     "What about me?" Smoked asked.
     "Well," Suicide said looking at the scroll.  "I'll see what I can do."
     Smoked nodded and looked at the bowl.  "Uh, dude could you?"
     Suicide shook his head.  "I think you had enough."
     "Oh man, I didn't get a buzz," Smoked said.
     "Maybe next time," Suicide said.
     Cranked got up.  "I feel fine."  He looked around the room.  "Man this place
looks just like the sitting room of the pawn shop."
     Suicide shook his head and walked into the other room.
     "Hey," called Cranked.  "Don't leave me."  He looked around.  "I don't know my
way back."
     "Yo, dude," Smoked said.  "We're still in the pawn shop.  You do not have to go
anywhere."
     Cranked nodded.  "Uh, talk a little slower dude cause I didn't understand a word
you just said."
     Smoked shook his head.  "I wish I had some more."
     Acid sat down.  "I really do not think you need it."
     "Oh shut up," Smoked said.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ERINIKA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ALPHABET SOUP was 
unseated this week as DRAKE'S TELEVISION moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-0-0 record for the round.  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to 
compare with FEMME FATALE's team record!  A 4-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 16th 
place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of WEISS MACHT.  How 
else weeks like this one's 2-0-1?  How else the sudden move to 20th team?  The 
proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with DEMONIC's team record!  A 1-0-0 
week and now a firm grasp on a 23rd place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery 
on the part of BILBO'S BUDDIES.  How else weeks like this one's 3-2-0?  How else the 
sudden move to 24th team?  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise 
the harder you fall.  This week THE BEGINNING went 0-5-0 and fell 15 notches into 
26th!  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with BLACK & BLUE's team 
record!  A 1-2-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 30th place ranking.  STORM TROOP bore 
the brunt of major assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 32nd 
position as the result of going 1-2-0!  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part 
of HORS DE COMBAT.  How else weeks like this one's 2-3-0?  How else the sudden move 
to 33rd team?  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder 
you fall.  This week THE BLACK ROSE went 0-3-0 and fell 17 notches into 39th!  The 
proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with THE INANIMATES' team record!  A 
1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 44th place ranking.  THE BULLS bore the brunt of 
major assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 52nd position as the 
result of going 0-2-0!  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise 
the harder you fall.  This week WARLORDS went 0-2-0 and fell 25 notches into 68th!  
Did only my eyes note the 4-0-0 record which DRAKE'S TELEVISION managed to post this 
round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  NOSFERATU caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TORTURES TOES and 
was awarded 25 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
JUSTICE put down PIXIE BLIGHT, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the 
process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, UU DOEWANAKNO has 
lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of PUNCH DRUNK, for 
with its arena victory it may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ERINIKA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  WARLORDS is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of LED ZEPPELIN are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after ASTRO. 
Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems 
that NANA KOOT posted a challenge against the more highly recognized MINNET.  The 
results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand NANA KOOT subdued MINNET.  Remember warriors, 
this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Walk proud, warriors of GNOSTIK!  By 
striking down KNITTED AFGHAN you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is 
known to all in ERINIKA.  SABER must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the 
arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by KAT of FEMME FATALE.  Hail KAT for thy 
victory!  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in ERINIKA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Mongol Horde -- Nope, you can't blame your loss on my tourney FE.  I have fought in
one tourney my entire DM career and I went an impressive 1-3.  I've just learned 10
parry skill also in the process of fighting, hence the rating. -- Pixie Blight

Cross Czech -- I came from one of the hardest arenas.  It not really the arena that
is responsible for the loss as much as good managing on Crip's part and crappy
managing on Darque's side. -- Scrod Envy

King Rat -- Yes, I am hiding a few FE and skills.  It doesn't seem to help me in this
arena, but they are there nonetheless. -- Dixie

Horus -- Interesting set up is one way of saying it.  21 Con and Takes Tremendous
amounts of damage.  I'm pleased so far with the experiment. -- Master Darque

Mistress Darque (or better yet Dark Son/Phantasm/Omnimancer) -- Cry and lie, cry and
lie.  It is all you are capable of doing, bratling. -- Master Janos (It is
interesting to see on the Round Table how your alliance back-stabs one another by
giving style lists out on your own members and how your alliance is seen by others.
You are dismissed.)

Adam -- The courage of God's first.  The wisdom of the guy that got tricked into
eating the fruit. -- Phamynn
P.S.  Nice skill rape.

Punch Drunk -- So you stopped a war.  Let's see how you feel when Famine steps in and
oh so slowly death overtakes you. -- Fizban

Banzai -- Wow! -- Dhethe

Hannibal -- Darling, Darling, what were you thinking.  Didn't you realize that I'm
the Bhaum.  Why were you trying to resist? -- The Bhaum

Louen Leoncoeur -- Thank you.  Thank you for everything. -- Prizmatyk Wahl

Kasenko -- The win was nice but as a teacher you stink. -- Phether

Azzo -- Just whose blood do you lust for anyway?  Yours was all I saw. -- Whahl of
Phorse

Black Eye -- Well fought. -- Lytening

Black Book -- The learns take some of the sting out of that beating.  Do you have my
number in there? -- Kantryp

Sacha -- And you teach well.  Cool. -- O'Ryan
P.S.  Merlin was the last one of my original five warriors so I'll be dragging this
out.

Tahga-jute -- Boon!  Heh, heh. -- Mega Mage

Red Ruephin -- I thought I had you. -- Arrogant Oracle

Pontos -- You have teeth.  Eek! -- Willing Witch

D'yer Mak'er -- It seems I've lived up to my name. -- Wimpy Warlock

Ed. -- Times are hard.  I'd finish your brussel sprouts AND lick the plate. -- CFH
P.S.  Right about now I'd even eat Asparagus.

     How about you take the sprouts and I'll take the asparagus? -- Ed.

Sheltowee -- When I knock you down, you better stay down. -- CFH

Assur -- I was wisecracking when I made that 40% jab.  I am not a good manager, nor
do I consider myself one.  But I'll give you my opinion.  Ironically you picked #8 on
my favorites scale so it is one of the styles I've spent the least amount of time
developing.  I work with the LU and PL alot these days.  But anyway, I would have to
say WT or WL and by my design strats I would choose WL between the two.  A 21 WT/17
WL is sweet but a 17 WT/21 WL can be sweeter.  Just depends on the rest of the stats,
I guess.  What do YOU think? -- CFH
P.S.  IMO, a BA never need have a ST above 17, less than that depending on size.  The
Consortium once told me never add Con to an offensive.  Size can't be altered.  The
skills in SP are decent but don't really compliment the BA's need for ATT and Init
skills.  If you put your 21 in DF you might as well create an AB.  Definitely WT or
WL.

All -- I think that the AB is probably the most difficult of all styles to design and
run.  Their lack of Init is infuriating.  Especially for someone who runs alot of LU.
Usually, if you manage to jump your foe, they swing once or twice and then stand
around with their fingers in their noses.  It can also be difficult to find their
faves because they have a fairly diverse range to choose from.  A default 10-10-1
works well with some but others don't respond well to it.  All in all they are a
headache. -- CFH

Baphomet -- Like I said, just chill. -- CFH

Asmo -- Could you please take the following teams off your list for me.  All the guys
that I want to run on them for the Turf Wars are dead.  Thanks.  Bed Time Buddies
(411) and My First Words (409) -- the Mun

Asmo -- TW2 really looks like a quality gig.  You've certainly topped your earlier
efforts.  I do not know if I will be able to swing more turns, but we will see.... --
Red Raven

Fascist Brethren -- Looking great!  I will probably not make this turn, and not sure
if I'll be back, but I can see that my Bros have things well in hand.  Fight the good
fight! -- Red Raven

Baphomet -- Understood, sometimes I let the little things go way out of control.  I
am trying real hard to calm the tongue. -- Suicide

C.F.H. -- I can finish a lot of things that I start.  Now I can say a lot more, but
with the respect of The Company I won't.  So consider this nuff said. -- Suicide

Saber -- What the hell is a hoookah? -- Stoned

$inner -- What? -- Bud
P.S.  What?  Oh yea, up what?  The Cartel is uh What?  And we're better, what and
they can't win for what.  And you bow to what?  Oh we knew that. -- Bud

Cowboys from Hell -- That's what I said.  As in duh. -- Suicide

Kim Basinger -- As in due.  The thing is I was toasted when I fought you. -- Bud
P.S.  You didn't look all that hot when I was fried and when the brain started
registering again I couldn't find you.  Please don't say you look worse.

Green Eyes and Femme Fatale -- My sincere apologies for the death.  It was not
intentional.  In fact, I had actually challenged a more seasoned warrior.  I await
your bloodfeud. -- Saber of the Black Rose

Jorja -- After the way you handled my other mates, I was afraid I'd have to go with
no revenge.  A good fight. -- Archie O'Garr

Buried Treasure -- I generally make it a rule not to downchallenge, but I really
don't think we're far enough apart to matter.  I have my reasons. -- Saber

Call Me Trinity -- Call me embarrassed.  After that first blow, I figured I had the
fight won. -- Ragna Rok

Asmo Dius -- Having heard nothing to the contrary, I am announcing Black Rose (536)
in support of the Fascist Federation.  Our champion is Saber.  The stable includes
Mumbles McGoew, Archie O'Garr, Ragna Rok and Hot Rod. -- Dollarbill, manager

Master Darque -- Yes I would like to see pictures, but we both know, that if Ultraist
hadn't saved them, they would have been gone long since! -- Abraxis

The Mun -- I guess we fight in more of the same arenas than I realized. -- Abraxis

Baphomet -- Talk about rude, will you?  Wait till you see where I sheathe this
scimitar! -- Abraxis

All -- I regret that I must lie dormant in this arena for a turn or two!  Know that I
will return though! -- Abraxis

Great One -- Ha!  Champ War--Champ War--Champ...Oh, you're not a very victorious
champ...vs. me, at least, are you?! -- Jim, wearing an enormous grin

Huld -- Don't "Huld" much energy, do ya?! -- BA
P.S.  Some "Champ" YOU are...hrmph!

Spaztic Boar -- Hmm...I've ALWAYS loved hunting pigs...your spaztic-ness doesn't come
from any deadly diseases, does it? -- Tha

All -- Welcome the Grouchy Golems this fine arena for their first victorious turn!
They'll be joining the Warlords this turn, and Arabian Knights have earned a two-in-
a-row play by winning an honor. -- Blackwind

Justice -- Next time, can you serve me with more learns?  Man, if I had lost a fight
like that, my manager might have DA'd me, even with a TV to compensate.  See you
around...in my avoids. -- Sunglasses

Drake -- It wasn't a downchallenge, but it was a win for you.  At home in Talcama,
downchallenging is the norm.  I'm used to it and expect it from managers.  I
understand some managers have some sense of moral code which prevents such
challenges, but I don't have the time, energy, or desire to keep track of such
frivolous things.  Better just to assume all managers will give and get
downchallenges. -- Assur
P.S.  I sent 2-3 to you this turn.  But Frisbee will be moving up to the Adepts, so
Downchallenge away!
P.P.S.  What would it take to get to the TOP of your list?  As long as it doesn't
involve killing your warriors, it might become a mini-goal of mine.  (While I don't
like killing others' warriors, I still consider myself Delarquan.)

EPA -- 4 TV's from Erinika, 2 for the EPA, 1 for Drake (luckily that warrior is outta
here--but congrats on the big one!), and 1 for Solomon.

Drake & Uu Doewanakno -- Great job with the TC!  Way to rep 73.  Well done. -- Horus
One-Eye

The Beginning -- Congrats on your 100 wins! -- Horus

Black Eye -- I smacked ya at the tourney! -- Kim Basinger

Huld -- Nice rip for the Apprentice's win. -- Heartbreaker

Lucia -- You dodged well at the Rookie's contest.  Nice win. -- Brooke Burns, Bimbos
3

T.V. Hopeful -- Well...well...well!!!  Bet your punk arse didn't expect me to win
that fight did you, heeeee...heee...hee!  You should have never sent me into Desp.
That's where the tables turned on you.  Thanks for the skills! -- Heather, Sexy
Ladies (16)

Rapture -- I suppose you thought that I was just going to stand there and allow you
to beat on me.  Well you lost and I'll see you again at the Face to Face. -- Acutate,
Ad Hominem (65) DM-72

Huld -- Well...you couldn't hit me until minute three and you were almost
exhausted...good thing you did not allow me to get the initiative or things would
have been a lot different!!!  See you at the face to face, chump! -- Acutate, Ad
Hominem (65) DM-72

Hoar Sflie -- "Haaaaaa aaahahaaaa...like me smile!  You should never, ever slow down
because I'm a Total Parry...who do you think you are...haaahaaa!  I took it to your
behind...and that's that.  See you around ol-boy! -- Acumen, Ad Hominem (172) DM-72

Buried Treasure -- Well...you sure showed me who was boss!  Thanks for the skills and
thanks for allowing me to live to fight another day. -- Banshi, 5 Amigos II, DM-72

Squeezer -- WOW!!!  What did our fight last, 30 seconds?  What I should have done was 
let you get a few hits in and then beat the crap out of you...but I didn't...
haaahaaha! -- Cyspar: R.a.g.e. war, DM-72

Huld -- You are lucky I allowed you to live...how'd you like my war hammer?  See you
again...I hope...you were easy!!! -- Cyspar, r.a.g.e. war, DM-72

Mannaz Thorsson -- Hwat a lucky hunk of junk you are!!!  I'll meet up with you again
in the next tourney.  I'll beat you next time. -- Bandit, Hog Wars (72-5040)

S.N.A.F.U. -- I was 7-2-0 until I met up with you in the Tourney.  You sent me away
with my head down, feeling sorry for myself.  I had high hopes of winning...congrats
on your win.  See you next time. -- Judoka Josh (6-5586)

All -- Solomon the wise has departed, gone to his heaven.  Those of you who have lost 
to him won't miss him.  Those of you that have not, you may wipe the sweat of your
brow.  Goodbye, my friend.  Seig Heil. -- Goat

Asmo -- Peace Bringers (491), Peace Keepers (492), Peace Makers (493), Duelmaster
(477), Kings of Peace (489) will be managed by me. -- Goat

All -- Contrary to prior personals, I am here this turn, at least one team is. --
Abraxis

All -- Remember to put your arena number on your strategy sheets.  Strategies turned
in without an arena number run the risk of missing the turn. -- NAIEI
