                              ZALCON GOSSIP COLUMN #13

Seen (or Not) Around Town:  TOM RIDDLE was not seen around town as our reigning
Duelmaster and egoist took the turn off to prepare for the Adepts tournament.  I
hereby predict the overly self assured striker will crap out in the run-offs and not
TC.  Bet on it!  With the Duelmaster spot up for grabs and the advantage it gives in
the Stylemaster and MVP competitions, there was a lot of jockeying for position and
challenges at the top this turn.  The title fight was a rubber-match in a three fight
series between ALEJANDRO PENA and STREET SWEEPER.  SS took the final in the series
and did it in style, not just sending Alejandro back to the minors, but ending the
reliever's career by literally handing him his head.  This has a huge impact in
several of the competitions.  VINCENT CRABBE was one of the first out on the sands to
congratulate the new DM and thank him for eliminating the only competition in the
Aimed Blow Stylemaster race.  MICKEY HATCHER was seen sharpening up his Scimitar in
anticipation of spending the next couple of turns bloodfeuding the Duelmaster.  This
should give Mickey a big advantage in the Slasher competition if he can unseat the DM
and hold it for a couple turns.  Tom Riddle was heard to mutter that ally or no, he
will be seeking to regain 'his' spot.  My spies report that Street Sweeper will get
his invite if he can pick up two more political points.  So it remains to be seen
just how long Mickey can avoid Tom Riddle and hold the throne by bloodfeuding Street
Sweeper.  That will play a significant factor in how far up the MVP ranks Mickey can
climb.  BIGGO was seen celebrating a rare win, which could not have come at a better
time since it saved his life in the Dark Arena.  Way to hang in there, Biggo!
Everyone else is glad to see you return and hope you will return to the regular arena
and losing next turn.

The DRIEHDEN TP Report (a.k.a. the Undefeated Report):  What is wrong with you all?!?
How can you let this pud climb to 12-0?  MOURNING STAR, YOU SUCK!  GIVE UP AND LET A
REAL WARRIOR CHALLENGE AND LOSE TO DRIEHDEN TP!

Loser Lookout:  PLACID continues to dominate the bottom rung of the competition as he
becomes our first ten loss warrior.  Congratulations, Placid!  Your ineptitude has
reached a new low!

Behind the Numbers:  The total parries, as expected, continue to lead the field in
win/loss%.  A while back the offensive styles were completely dominating the arena in
terms of numbers but we are seeing a slight drop off as the Total Parries climb to
number 3 in number of fights.  The strikers continue to hold the number one spot with
lungers close behind.  In the top 11, the lungers are coming on strong, how long will
the strikers be able to hold them off?  Reality has caught up with the Bashers as
they now hold the bottom rung in terms of win/loss% as the Parry-Ripostes start to
develop and climb two spots from a couple turns ago.  The kills have dropped off from
earlier in the contest as the number of fights drop and warriors get more experienced
and a bit durable, well except for the AB's, they never get durable.

Until next turn,

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Alejandro, I regret that.  It makes such a mess to clean up....  I was aiming
for your right arm, but you didn't stand still much, and I kept missing it.

                                        Street Sweeper

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out DAIYLA KIV to 
see what's new.  See if I even talk to any of those losers in STYLISTS again!  Didja 
see where they got 1-4-0?  Somebody musta won a lotta fights!  What was the name of 
that team who got 4-0-0 this turn for a total 35-25-1 you ask?  (Sure)  SUPERIOR 
FORCES ZC's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for LOUD DRUNK?  PARTY 
GEEKS' proud of him after beating HOMER SIMPSON and getting 27 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  ADALIUS' match with STAN THE MAN cost him a loss of 15 points!  
Like, MICKEY HATCHER must be pretty gutsy!  He Bloodfeuded the Duelmaster from SAND 
DANCERS.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  And I was just getting used to 
the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome MICKEY HATCHER.  Aren't 1988 
DODGERS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of GURTARG'S AXES must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what STDS' been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from GURTARG'S AXES, that's fer sher.  
Can SAND DANCERS' DONSTAN be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but 
is that really the same?  I'm not so sure DRIPS knew all the facts when he challenged 
VINCENT CRABBE of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  I saw DRIPS stumbling and dribbling at The 
Crystal Wheel last week...  VINCENT CRABBE subdued DRIPS, and was I surprised 
(right!).  But its a good thing VINCENT CRABBE could stop laughing long enough to 
give DRIPS a good pounding.  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out 
GLAERIKIM challenged CRAZY LARRY.  After all, haven't GURTARG'S AXES and FORCE OF 
FIVE had a long standing duel in DAIYLA KIV?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but CRAZY LARRY wants me to write about it since he bested GLAERIKIM.  
Satisfied?  TOM RIDDLE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
TV challenged AULDRYMBREI.  11 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell 
me.) I thought TOM RIDDLE showed great skill and promise when he won victory over 
AULDRYMBREI.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  How cruel!  VUELTA PELETON heartlessly sent his to FLECHA certain fate 
in the Dark Arena.  Is a 4-8-0 bad or something?  I hear WICKED DESTINY sent BIGGO to 
the Dark Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  Hey!  Quit laughing!  
Just because HE HATE ME had 5-6-0 was no reason for KNOCKAROUND KNIGHTS to send it to 
the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  What a bummer!  OSCAR SEVILLA got wasted by DRACO MALFOY!  
But with a 6-7-0, I guess VUELTA PELETON aren't too bummed.  LOUD DRUNK of PARTY 
GEEKS wasn't planning on killing HOMER SIMPSON, I bet.  Now he has to worry about 
being Bloodfeuded, and getting put on lists...  It was totally gross when LOUD DRUNK 
killed HOMER SIMPSON.  Blood and itty bitty body bits all over the place!  Things 
weren't too happy at SPRINGFIELD USA, either.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what? 
(MICKEY HATCHER vs. STREET SWEEPER, that is.) ARENA FELINES figured it was better to 
let TARAPYN kill TOONCES unpunished, and not worry about getting nailed again!  Hey 
you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or 
have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Python -- I find your question confusing.  "How did I like that pounding?"  I did not
enjoy it.  I found it most unpleasurable and would prefer to NOT be pounded in the
future.  I hope I was able to answer your question satisfactorily.... -- Virgin Queen

Snake Face -- I have already beat you and your little friend Hisser down once
already.  Like you, I run from no one, so as far as I am concerned, until you
challenge me again, my business with you is through. -- Tarapyn

Demon Duo -- So you like trash talking you say.  In case you didn't know, there is no
one in this arena that doesn't know that already, and until you remove that foot from
your mouth no one is gonna hear you or even care. -- Youngblood

Jekyll -- I see you have made your return and like the Demon Duo, who you should
consider joining (you guys have so much in common), I do not have that much time for
your shenanigans.  I was going to challenge Ground Pounder but I am so over you from
the last time you were here that I do not care anymore unless you are going to quit
being a WUSSY and fight me. -- Youngblood
P.S.  I hope I spelled shenanigans correctly

All -- I hope you have all had a good time beating up on the Wimps.  Once again we
have proven that we can't stand up to quality fighters and managers.  We will now bow
out of the contest and move on to other things.  If you missed out on getting some
easy wins, tough.  You have to strike fast.  If you would like to beat up on some
more Wimps, you can find us in:  60, 40, 8, 22 & 28.  Good luck to all. -- Wimpy

Tilaen tyl Sanh -- My apologies, I didn't realize you were an ugly bird and not a
bloke. -- Draco Malfoy

Pelak Ten Zorn -- Of course Songbird is male, all the best singers are. -- Salazar
Slytherin

Youngblood -- You waste your time trying to reason with the Demon Duo.  It is quite
obvious they are both delusional. -- Salazar Slytherin

Syr-Davan -- Well it seems we were both happy with the learns from our match-up! --
Tom Riddle

Glaerikim -- Well an 'almost' will get you a pass next time you are in challenge
range.  I dislike 'almost' losing as much as you dislike 'almost' winning. -- Vincent
Crabbe

Street Sweeper -- Good luck against Mickey Hatcher!  I will be rooting for you. --
Tom Riddle

Cookie Jones -- Come on!  I expect you to beat a lunger on your bloodfeud.  Get with
the program! -- Lord Voldemort

Auldrymbrei -- We will meet again soon. -- Lord Voldemort

Durany -- Impressive.  I underestimated your ability to not get hit. -- Draco Malfoy

Kages Fault -- I may be dumb, but you are stupid. -- Gregory Goyle

Hanval The Claw -- Hey, I might actually stand a chance of living if I can keep
matching up with you every turn. -- Vincent Crabbe

HIV #3 -- What was that?  I'll give you a little free advice.  If you challenge a
defensive on the parry tactic and get fewer attacks off than he learns skills, then
you need to lower your sights a bit. -- Ultra Endeavor

Gregory G. -- Sigh!  The same could probably be said if you get lots of attacks off
but hit less than they learn.... -- Kages Fault

Woss -- Good one.  Caught me by complete surprise with your strat.  You should keep
that one so me know what to do next time! -- I. Orc

Donstan -- I know!  Stop reminding me!  If I thought for a second that would go
through then of course I would have trained skills! -- Krazy Kat

All -- After seeing the Style Masters posting this week, I did not see some of my new
guys.  I cannot even remember if I posted their styles.  I realize they don't have
much of a chance but here they are/were:
Nancy -- AB
Dubawnt -- WS
Kokanee -- AB
With these "Gong Show" rejects it's a real learning experience.... -- Lance Turbo

Wish I had more time to do this...see you on the sands. -- Lance Turbo, Cat Fight

Krazy Kat -- No that didn't work out like it was supposed to.  Ingvar just wasn't cut
out for this line of work. -- Skullagrim

Superior Forces ZC -- That was a great fight.  I was on the edge of my seat.  Next
time I'll be ready for you! -- Skullagrim

Bobby -- That was my first fight with that weapon.  Are you thinking what I'm
thinking? -- Dreihden Plunger

Mourning Star -- In order to stick a sword in your opponent, you have to first be
able to hit them. -- Dreihden TP

All -- Not much point this late in the game, but I am announcing Lil Abner in the AB
competition -- Postmaster

Stan the Man -- Er...you wouldn't happen to be a sign of the presence of
Assurnasirbannanapeel, would you?  No, wait, you can't be, you're not a basher.
Well, I have to tell you that while a TV challenge is a fine thing to have, you don't
need to get RECKLESS with it.  Look what happened to Alejandro Pena, after all. --
Syr-Davan

Songbird -- Sing it to me gently. -- Pelak ten Zorn
P.S.  I kinda wish now that I'd listened to Olinda when she told me I wouldn't like
this gladiating stuff.  But how was I to know?  Sisters always say things like that.

Krazy Kat -- You're a premise?  I would never have guessed.  I guess I just didn't
expect premises to be so hairy. -- Donstan
P.S.  I think I was going to say something more, some really great comment, but just
as I was about to formulate it, the scribing instrument fell apart, or something fell
off it, or I don't know what, but there was a big lapse of time before I had a chance
to finish my thought, by which time it was GONE.

Canon -- Always a good brand. -- Tilaen tyl Sanh

Draco Malfoy -- So I'll GET more fights like that.  Whatever it takes, yes? -- Tilaen

Hisser -- Would you care to repeat that when Olinda's listening?  Thanks. -- Donstan,
worthy warrior

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
     More info:  Master Darque, MasterDarqueDM@aol.com, or Jack Wolfspider,
russtulp@aol.com.  Or diplo Darque Forces (428) or Dynastic (433) in Arena 45.
