                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, it certainly feels better to be back this turn, at least this time it is
earned.  Again, since he's within challenging range, I'll offer the throne to
Gossipid; however, if someone else wants a shot, they're certainly within their
rights to meet me on the sands as well.

Duelmaster of Telorinthe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TELORINTHE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week REJECTS went 3-2-0 to move up 4 in 
the rankings.  My praise to THE ASCENDANTS for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  LOTUS-EATER caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DRAGGIN' MAIN and 
was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
LOTUS-EATER put down DRAGGIN' MAIN, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in 
the process.  Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster GOLDEN SOMBRERO 
challenged GOSSIPID last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  Although 
GOSSIPID made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
GOLDEN SOMBRERO.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this 
week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TELORINTHE.  TELORINTHE, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of 
thy guilds is DEATH'S CHOSEN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding DEATH'S CHOSEN.  Indeed it was INVIDIOTS.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  RIZZYN take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in TELORINTHE.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that RIZZYN posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized BUZZ.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand RIZZYN lost to BUZZ.  
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.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week LYRIAL, at 9-7-1, departed 
TELORINTHE forever.  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 TELORINTHE as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Paraldoxia -- You are going to have to borrow some thrust from elsewhere, aren't you?
I shall pray for you. -- Confession

Gushan -- Rah, rah, sis boom bah. -- Pep Rally

Golden Sombrero -- You covered me completely.  Salute. -- Letter Sweater

Cyclidia -- You've got some endurance, Babe.  Wow!  I am lucky to still be draggin'.
-- Draggin Main

Lotus-eater -- You gulp custodians also? -- Custodian

Congrats to Puny Orc Pelotons for best Unchartered Team.  The Creepster wants to know
where that is in Aradi? -- Coach

All -- I'm unsure of what happened to Clodia, who was supposed to run this turn.  I
was excited to try a new strategy to see if I could have her get a win for once, but
I'll be forced to wait another turn. -- JGW

M.E. -- Another thing slipped through the cracks.  If you would diplo me a mailing
address I will be glad to ship you a packet with all the information you have
requested, plus whatever else I can add to help with your thirst of knowledge. -- JGW

Azaziel -- Yes, sarcasm is impossible to convey in type format, but I can appreciate
the attempt.  Looking at things in the light you have shown I will be sure to take
all you say as an attempt as sarcasm, including your last comments.  I did put it out
for Hammer to review my team with the Gladiatorial Commission to ensure your troubled
psyche there was no tournament experience upon them.  I still will say my offer to
you to 'bring it' still stands.  Nothing exciting going on except a bunch of managers
staying friendly in the arena.  I'll put a little heat in here if you are game. --
JGW

Roid Floyd -- So honoured that you would try to peddle, or is that pedal, your wares
my way.  But base stealers aren't the ones known for the juice. -- Steal Home

Rizzyn -- I hate getting sidetracked.  Won't you give up one of these days? -- Detour

Fener -- Hmm, got lucky with that challenge.  Didn't actually know your style, and
was pleasantly surprised. -- Bloody Stool

Letter Sweater -- No sweat at all in fact. -- Golden Sombrero

Telorinthe -- With 72 Over Par gone from the stable, we bring in our driving range
drinking buddy, Quadruple Bogey.  Please don't let him take to many hacks. -- Dark
Oracle, mgr. of Bad Signs

Kallor -- Hmmm, that first parry cost you, didn't it? -- Cyclidia

Fener -- Wow!  That was fast. -- Paraldoxia

Royal Rage Hammer -- You are my superior lady, but I owed that one to Lady Blue.
Salute! -- Gushan

Confession -- Ah well, I did ask Michael to give me a crack at ya.  Now it's the
psycho's turn. -- Helga Hoarfrost

Togg -- I am not happy... -- Melancholia

Coach -- No straight A's, but Melancholia looks workable.  Still, I've got to try my
luck with Confession. -- Michael Eldritch

Treach -- Me?  Ugly?  The only thing ugly in that fight was the can opener they
needed to get you out of your armor.  Did you see the gunk stuck to that thing? --
Helga

So Golden Sombrero holds the throne...  Stop by Eldritch Concoctions for a night on
the house.  Slugbait, good to see you back, and nice way to nab the Unchartered List.
*wry grin*  Hammer, I told you I had an idea for Royal Rage, so now I am content.
Enough already, I'm pretty beat right now, so as a friend of mine likes to say,
Blades Up! -- Michael Eldritch
P.S.  Invidiots?!  Where are you?
P.P.S.  One other thing I'm looking for:  A definitive listing of the strong vs. weak
style points (i.e., slasher, + to hit arm, -- to defend arm).  I need more
comparisons!

17 July 2008
All -- Many of you know me and many more don't, but I will be scarce for a few
months.  I am relocating, so look for my presence online!  As my will, so mote it
be! -- Abraxis

                   aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate
                   disqualification from the Turf War (so be sure to take any
                   multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams that do not properly
                   declare or fail to send a Gift Certificate by Turn 1.  In other
                   words, if your Gift Certificate is not received until Turn 3 of
                   the Turf War, and you have fought on Turns 1 and 2, your scoring
                   will not begin until Turn 3.  All conditions must be met before
                   scoring will begin--declaration, verification, and Gift
                   Certificate received.
               e.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 5 of
                   the Turf War.
               f.  For purposes of scoring, the moderators will score the Turf War
                   and settle any and all disputes as they arise.  Their decisions
                   will be final.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
Duelmaster                                       +2

Champions:
     1.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory.
     2.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
     3.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior in the arena, but
         not the Dark Arena, may be replaced.
     4.  Champions must be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

Bloodfeuds:
        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is ALLOWED and encouraged.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 50 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) win such status.
        4.  Points for TVs and TCs will be applied the Turn after RSI posts
            tournament results in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter (i.e., if the
            results post on North Fork turn 275, points will be credited on North
            Fork turn 276 to the applicable teams).

Special Considerations:
        1.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
        2.  There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun.  If
            you begin the Turf War with Alliance A, you must end the Turf War with
            Alliance A.  If you begin the Turf War with Team A, you must end the Turf
            War with Team A.
        3.  There will be a maximum of seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance.  It is the
responsibility of the Captain to distribute Gift Certificates.  Moderators will
submit a list of each manager on the winning alliance to RSI at the completion of the

            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have
            at least one arena fight to receive this award).
        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
