                                 Daydream Believer

You once thought of me,
As a white knight on a steed.
Now you know how happy I can be...

It's true.  I'm gone.  I've punched my ticket to Immortality and I'm off to the Isle.
I know a lot of you are wondering what it is about me that has made me so successful.
I wish I knew for sure.  I think it has more to do with intangibles (knack) than it
does with design, bonuses and favorites.  I'll let you decide.

Daydream Believer (PR) 17-14-4-17-7-8-17  Poor Endurance--Good Damage
I -- 8 (+1)  R -- 13  A -- 14 (+4)  P -- 14 (+4)  Df - 8  Dc - 6 (+3)

I know what you're thinking, "WTF, that guy looks like a 98 lb weakling!"  Sigh...I
prefer to think my physical characteristics are ideally suited for a finesse style.
As for my bases, I know they aren't much to look at.  After all, I am a PR.  I'm
fortunate to be blessed where I need it the most--attack and parry.

Okay, so I've got nice bases with bonuses in the right spots.  What about favorites?
Did I know them in advance or did I change them?  The answer is no, I had no idea
what they were for sure until I recieved my graduation announcement.  I would be
happy to tell you what my favorites are but I don't think my clone, Jumpinjack Flash,
would be very happy with me if I did.  Let's just say that from the moment I stepped
on the sands as a Rookie I used the same strategy in EVERY fight.  The only thing I
ever changed was armor (early on vs. TP's) and attack/defend locations.  That should
give those of you who have faced me more than once something to think about.

You may be interested to know that I am all natural.  I haven't had a prize of any
type used on me.  I'm a freak of nature.  It just goes to show you never know when a
guy like me will walk into your guildhouse looking for work as a gladiator.  It's up
to you to spot the potential and nuture it along.

I'm going to list my tourney results and records versus each style.  It isn't meant
to be a brag--I just thought you might find it interesting and a lot easier than
looking it up yourself.  Enjoy!
     Tourneys:  Rookies: 15-1-3 TC.  Initiates: 15-3-3 TV.  Adepts: 16-2 TC.

LU: 46-9-4  PL: 5-1-1  PR: 2-0  PS: ---  SL: 9-2  ST: 51-5-2  TP: 35-4-3  WS: 2-0

As you can see, the only style I had trouble with is the ABs.  I think that has more
to do with which ABs I fought rather than the style as a whole.  I was 3-1 vs ABs
early on (Rookies-Champs) and 4-10 in Challengers.  I was 1-5 vs Marv, 0-1 vs Marv Jr
and 0-3 vs Soulsnare.  I am going to make an educated guess and assume they all had
skills or prizes added to them to make them competetive at the Challenger level where
so few ABs are.  I could be wrong, though I doubt it.

See you on the Isle,
    Daydream Believer

Okay, Galen, here's the scoop.  I have written 3 column's since becoming the Tower
Guardian--once upon reaching the throne, once upon reaching a milestone and most
recently following the last tournament.  I received confirmation that all of my
messages were delivered to the scribes in your office yet none of them have been
printed.  What's up with that?  Is my handwriting so poor as to be unintelligible?
Am I being censored?  Will THIS column be printed?

On the off-chance this IS printed for the public I will take the time to summarize
the previous columns:

I was happy to be the new Tower Guardian.

I am a clone (It seemed appropriate at the time to admit this with the "Clone Wars"
movie set to debut).

At the time, I was happy to set the modern record (since Terrablood archived the
arena records) for most consecutive turns as Tower Guardian.

My feelings were hurt a bit when Papa Bear asked my manager, Mannequin, if I competed
in the Eligibles tourney at the FTF (hey, Papa Bear, I went 6-3!!!).

Last but not least, I was a little disappointed in my Runner-up finish in the last
tourney (I now have 2 Runner-up finishes under my belt, Freshmen & Eligibles).

So, here is where things currently stand.  I'm on a roll (Obviously.  I've won 25
fights in a row overall.)  I have set modern records for most consecutive turns (20
and counting) and recognition points (760 and counting) as Tower Guardian.  That's
pretty cool.  I have but two goals I would like to achieve at this time.  I'd like to
make it 26+ turns to say I was on top for an entire year and I would like to win the
Eligibles tourney.

Good luck to you all,

Prodigal Son

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Warriors and managers of Talahya Arena,

There were one hundred and twenty-six fights today!  It was a long day for
spyreporters and other Commission personnel, I can tell you.

First of all, Prodigal Son, I'm sorry your columns were not published but it was not
my doing, nor do I know how they came to be omitted.  I hope it doesn't happen this
time.  And thank you for writing them!  I see that you did challenge this cycle,
going after one of our higher-ranked Grand Challenger Champions.  Well done!
PRODIGAL SON (1-7937) (60-8-1,760) of MANNEQUIN'S BEST TV challenged MASOCHISTIC NEWT
(62-1081) (45-46-3,258) of DEATH MOB.  PRODIGAL SON devastated MASOCHISTIC NEWT in a
2 minute Challenge Title fight.  This was our only Tournament Victor challenge, by
the way.

I'm sorry to report that three warriors were slain today.

*  HONEY (11-6368) (46-78-2,180) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought GUMMI GHOUL (60-6411) (24-
11-1,141) of THE UPSTARTS III.  HONEY was dispatched by GUMMI GHOUL in an exciting 1
minute melee.  I've sent Honey an invitation to dinner and a play, to help her
overcome the resurrection hangover.

*  RAINSONG (11-6128) (50-92-0,164) of ELFQUEST fought BILLY MITCHELL (82-17798) (36-
57-1,129) of MEDAL OF HONOR AA3.  RAINSONG butchered BILLY MITCHELL in an action
packed 1 minute mismatched bout.  I've sent Rainsong a lute, so he can pass along the
headache to his teammates.

*  BART SIMPSON (19-5072) (17-9-0,51) of CUNNING RUNTS fought GHETTO DEFENDANT (41-
4351) (22-17-2,57) of RADIO CLASH.  BART SIMPSON was easily killed by GHETTO
DEFENDANT in a 1 minute one-sided match.  Adding insult to injury, Mr. Simpson was
not only slain, but was voted this cycle's least popular.  I've sent him a
toothbrush, because there's nothing like clean, minty teeth to make you feel alive in
the morning.

Mannequin's Best were most avoided (that's the Tower Guardian, for those who napped
through it).  They were avoided by Night's Guardians.

The most challenged warrior was Wall of Glass.  MORGAN (35-2960) (24-7-0,106) of SKI-
BUM 35 challenged WALL OF GLASS (11-5534) (64-101-0,120) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II.
MORGAN savagely defeated WALL OF GLASS in a popular 3 minute gruesome Challenge bout.

Of course, Kaiden is our Overall Popularity Leader.  KAIDEN (35-3108) (146-148-2,195)
of VIOLENT FEMS fought BOB LE CANADIEN (52-3632) (39-32-0,191) of BLOOD AND GUTS!.
KAIDEN viciously subdued BOB LE CANADIEN in a crowd pleasing 3 minute brutal bout.

How do you beat a chasm of ignorance?  Study hard, and teach what you know.  Hoping
to be educated, DEATH EMPRESS (43-1434) (22-24-1,154) of ORDINANCE challenged CHASM
OF IGNORANCE (4-4186) (57-57-0,165) of UTOPIA RELIGIOSO.  DEATH EMPRESS savagely
defeated CHASM OF IGNORANCE in a 7 minute Challenge fight.  Death Empress is this
cycle's favorite warrior.

Alas, I think it is time to draw this report to a close.  I'll see you all at the
fights in another fortnight.  Until then, my friends, may you enjoy the spring which
has sprung so late upon our chilly Isle.

With best wishes,
Galen Shanmarrik

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Daydream Believer -- Wow, I sensed a lot of bitterness behind that challenge.  I
still won when it counted.  <sticks out tongue> -- Faith

Kellumbo's Kids would just like to send a big Hello out to the arena.  We are looking
forward to a larger arena than 105 was, and we are excited to be here.  Hoping for
some good fights and friendly rivalry.  Best wishes. -- Detective Kellumbo

     Hello, Detective! -- Galen Shanmarrik (local spyreporter)

Soul Scourge -- Excellent timing on that challenge, seems that I was issued a tiny
ax!  I don't normally challenge but I'm posting vs ya this cycle, zammy crazy, but
I'd like to see if I can make a better showing.  Unorthodox fashion crap! -- Half-Orc
Captain

Kook Arocha -- Congratulations on the Advanced Master rating. -- Mountain Goat

Masochistic Newt -- Good fight.  It was pretty close, I thought. -- Rem

Import-Export -- What strange names some gladiators are given!  Good fight, by the
way.  That's the kind I like -- a fight that wrings every drop of energy out of you.
I salute the superior stamina. -- Gazelle

Hana -- Heh.  How come your team name says you're a girl but the announcer says
you're an "it"? -- Sandman

Peg Leg -- Why would a golem have a peg leg?  Couldn't they just give you a new leg
with a foot and toes and everything? -- Hummingbird

Mandorallen -- Really, I have nothing to say.  Except that I'm happy for you that you
have a gender! -- Sleepwalker

Napoleon Dynamite -- Well, there you go.  Hot shot young tourney-schooled warrior
faces off against an old fart who's never even been to a tournament, and I get the
crap beat out of me.  And DON'T tell me it's an elven thing, either. -- Crooked Hoof

Salena Warsmith -- Tell your manager to change your train.  My teammates are always
hoping someone will tell OUR manager to change our trains.  *sigh* -- Moose

Dorie Miller -- I appreciate what you've done and all, but it's weird that you're a
dwarf. -- Peach Nutt

Tyra -- Wow, very impressive figure! -- Oran Ji
P.S.  I like watching you orccesses moving.

Jabberjaw -- Talking isn't enough, you have to be WITTY as you speak if you want to
hold people's attention and be acclaimed as a conversationalist. -- Punh Jently

Dexter -- If you're a golem, does that make you a wolf or a man? -- N.D. Grasse
P.S.  Or some kind of cousin of Galen?

Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!

Players of Duel 2:

RSI wants to try, in a few arenas, a system that rewards role-play and general arena
involvement.  Our thoughts at this time are as follows, and feedback is earnestly
solicited:

1.  What to reward.
a.  Spotlights--they don't have to be involved and lengthy storylines, and in fact,
my own inclination is to say: anything game related and original (i,e,, not a
reprint), maybe set a minimum length.  I use TOGS here as my model--half a column as
formatted for the newsletter, and we don't judge the quality of the writing (so long
as the editor isn't grossed out), just the intent to make a positive contribution.
b.  A dm column where one is "due."  Again, no judgment on quality of writing, should
be dm-related, and I would say (this is just me) a minimum length of maybe five
lines.
c.  Personals.  More than just "you suck," or "good fight."  How much more doesn't
really concern me, and quality, other than "not offensive to the editor," should not
be an issue.  We don't want to encourage participation and then muzzle it.
d.  It has been suggested that a reward point or two be offered for running a full
team.  We could include this, but my own inclination would be to say that there would
be no points for this, but that those who don't make a clear effort on this
(accidents happen, so maybe something like "when the three-turn total of fights is
below twelve"?) aren't eligible for points on any turn until they get it back up to a
full team.

2.  How to reward it.
a.  We've been thinking nebulously about some kind of point system, obviously, as an
example, say 3 points for a spotlight, 2 for a column, 1 for personals, more points
here for what takes more effort, but some points for any effort.  This is in no way
final!  But some way to keep track of who is contributing and how much, and as non-
subjective as possible; this would be noted as each newsletter would be proofed.  A
way to clearly identify who's sending in what would help, but I can work it out by
referring to the warrior listings if I have to.
b.  But, assuming a point system, do the rewards, whatever they end up being, go to
the player who achieves a certain point total?  Is this calculated per turn, or as a
running total over as many turns as it takes to reach that point?  Or to the player
with the highest total on any given turn?  What about ties?
c.  What do the points get the player?  The current thought is X points gets a free
fight, probably replacing the "Popularity Leader's" free fight in the relevant arena.
That suggests only one player getting a role-play free fight on any given turn.  Is
this enough to encourage the newsletter participation we're hoping for?  Should we
convert "This Week's Favorite" to a role-play free fight also?  Or handle rewards in
some other way entirely?

3.  Where it happens.
The current thought is, try it in four arenas:  one in each region, and one slow
arena.  Who picks the arenas in question?  I'd be inclined to rule out those that are
doing fairly well already (Ardivent, Sunset, Lapur; Arkers, Morya, North Fork), but
is that wise?  Or even fair?  Darned if I know.  Places where it is NOT currently
intended to happen:  Transfer arenas.  Maybe rule out the no-tourney arenas as
current candidates, too?

If this seems to work well enough to be worth the effort, should we consider
extending it to more, eventually to all non-transfer, arenas?

This is not a "someday down the line we might" concept.  We want to do this, and
SOON.  Your feedback would be appreciated, for, against, changes, anything.  You can
email me directly at jputney zianet com (make sure it says DM in the subject line) or
send a diplo to scribe, any arena.

the Scribe

P.S.  Staff members not to be eligible for role-playing free fights.

The Battle Royal V is upon us!  Come join one of the original contests that has had
some of the games best managers involved in the past.  DM 18, Talcama, some consider
it to be the crown jewel of the Delarq cities is where this contest will take place.

The Battle Royal is intended to be a play as you want, play what you want Delarquan
style contest with very few rules.  While I'd love to say, "NO AVOIDING" is the only
rule (and that wouldn't be too far off), I must spell out situations that can and
have occurred and require additional clarification.

The advantages of this format:
1) Simple.
2) No penalty for DAs.
3) No restrictions on warriors entered into the contest (baggers, TC mods, etc all
   welcome)
4) No penalty for not fighting. 
5) It isn't a race where 21 wit and favorite learn determine the victor.
6) Losing a warrior (or even your whole team) doesn't eliminate you from contention.
7) It is possible to overcome almost any deficit.  And this has been proven, with
   managers making huge point swings in short periods of time!
8) It is a contest designed to show manager skill rather than warrior ability.

There are a few disadvantages:
1) There is no set end.  It is possible for this contest to go on indefinitely.  In
   practice, this format has worked very nicely in the past and I expect it will
   continue to work well. 
2) You cannot avoid (But that is part of the fun and the head to head nature of this
   contest requires this rule.)
3) It encourages bloodshed.
4) Baggers and experienced warriors have an advantage over new warriors.

Battle Royal Rules:

- Any team in Talcama is eligible to participate.  There are no restrictions on
warriors (baggers, TC prize modified, etc).  However, any warrior that fights for
your team is considered in the BR.

- Teams may not avoid any other team within the contest.  (Note that you may avoid
teams outside the contest but you do so at your own risk.)  Avoiding a team on the
turn they enter the Battle Royal is not considered against the rules (since you

couldn't know the team wasn't part of the BR).  The suggestion is not to avoid at
all.  Assur (the contest moderator) gets an avoid report every turn and will catch
people avoiding!

- Managers may only enter a single team in the contest.

- Any manager with more than one team in Talcama may not challenge any other contest
warrior with their non contest team(s).  The intention is that no advantage can be
gained by having multiple teams in the arena.

****Failure to comply with the above rules***
1st offense: Disqualification from the prize, but you may still participate.
2nd offense: Warning.
3rd offense: Removal from Battle Royal.

- If a manager decides to switch teams, his score will start back at 0.  This is to
prevent a manager from sweeping the contest with several teams of sandbaggers.  Can a
manager use this clause to go from a negative score to zero?  Yes.  I realize this is
sort of cheating, but I'd rather have a manager start over with a new team than drop
out of the contest.  Even so, they have to start at 0 and must gain 25 points.

- If your warrior loses a contest fight because of an input error and this error is
verified by RSI, you will have a point added to your score.  The head to head records
will remain the same and any points gained by another manager will remain on that
manager's record.

- As soon as you are announced in the newsletter, you are officially entered into the
Battle Royal.  Scoring begins on that turn!  You are expected to follow the rules
that turn and every turn following.  Your team may enter any time they wish during
the course of the Battle Royal.

- If you are exiting the Battle Royal, you are not removed until the turn after your
intention is published.  You are asked to follow the rules for that turn (either
through not avoiding or not running your warriors).

Scoring:
- Scoring begins the turn your team declares participation.
- Scoring continues through the turn your team withdraws.
- Score is calculated by: Wins+Kills-Lossses.
- Only fights with other B.R. participannts count towards your score, but they count
  whether they are challenges or random match-ups.
- First Manager to 25 points wins!
- In event of tie, B.R. continues until one team that has reached 25 points is ahead
  of all other participants.

Disputes:
- The attempt has been made to make these rules as complete and bulletproof as
possible, but Tripwire will resolve any disputes as fairly as he is capable.

Prizes:
For the Winner:

6 Months Free Play in Talcama for the winning team (doesn't include tourneys)!

One +1 Bonus Potion (up to max for warrior, to be used on a warrior in DM 18)!

One Limited Damage Bump Potion (one time use, up to max for stats, used on DM 18
warrior)!

One Minor Stat Switch Prize (up to 2 points can be moved from one stat to another

stat on a new rollup in DM 18, before adding 14 points.  This prize can be used up to
3 months from the contest end.  Both points must be used in the same place (can't
take one from a speed and one from deftness and add one to wit and will)).

One Favorites Knowledge Potion (to be used on a 5+ FE warrior in DM 18).

Rename One Dark Arena Creature in DM 18, which will be renamed for 6 Months or until
the Ladies decide to return it to the previous name.

All potions renaming prizes must be used within 2 turns of the end of the contest.

Endurance Award (available to all participants):

One +1 Bonus Potion (up to max for warrior, to be used on a warrior in DM 18).

To qualify for the Endurance Award you must participate in 90% of the total fights
possible over the course of the BR.  If you don't have time to make it into the BR by
the first turn, there will be a two turn window before the counter will start for new
teams.  The fights do not have to be BR point scoring fights, just 90% of the total
possible participation over the course of the contest!  So, if the contest runs 26
turns, there are 130 fights possible. Your team must have 117 fights during those 26
turns to be eligible.

All prizes/potions subject to RSI's interpretation of how they are used/implemented.
RSI said the faves knowledge must be used on an Inits warrior or higher and set at
5FE or more.

                                  Daydream Believer

You once thought of me,
As a white knight on a steed.
Now you know how happy I can be...

It's true.  I'm gone.  I've punched my ticket to Immortality and I'm off to the Isle.
I know a lot of you are wondering what it is about me that has made me so successful.
I wish I knew for sure.  I think it has more to do with intangibles (knack) than it
does with design, bonuses and favorites.  I'll let you decide.

Daydream Believer (PR) 17-14-4-17-7-8-17  Poor Endurance--Good Damage
I -- 8 (+1)  R -- 13  A -- 14 (+4)  P -- 14 (+4)  Df - 8  Dc - 6 (+3)

I know what you're thinking, "WTF, that guy looks like a 98 lb weakling!"  Sigh...I
prefer to think my physical characteristics are ideally suited for a finesse style.
As for my bases, I know they aren't much to look at.  After all, I am a PR.  I'm
fortunate to be blessed where I need it the most--attack and parry.

Okay, so I've got nice bases with bonuses in the right spots.  What about favorites?
Did I know them in advance or did I change them?  The answer is no, I had no idea
what they were for sure until I recieved my graduation announcement.  I would be
happy to tell you what my favorites are but I don't think my clone, Jumpinjack Flash,
would be very happy with me if I did.  Let's just say that from the moment I stepped
on the sands as a Rookie I used the same strategy in EVERY fight.  The only thing I
ever changed was armor (early on vs. TP's) and attack/defend locations.  That should
give those of you who have faced me more than once something to think about.

You may be interested to know that I am all natural.  I haven't had a prize of any
type used on me.  I'm a freak of nature.  It just goes to show you never know when a
guy like me will walk into your guildhouse looking for work as a gladiator.  It's up
to you to spot the potential and nuture it along.

I'm going to list my tourney results and records versus each style.  It isn't meant
to be a brag--I just thought you might find it interesting and a lot easier than
looking it up yourself.  Enjoy!

As you can see, the only style I had trouble with is the ABs.  I think that has more
to do with which ABs I fought rather than the style as a whole.  I was 3-1 vs ABs
early on (Rookies-Champs) and 4-10 in Challengers.  I was 1-5 vs Marv, 0-1 vs Marv Jr
and 0-3 vs Soulsnare.  I am going to make an educated guess and assume they all had
skills or prizes added to them to make them competetive at the Challenger level where
so few ABs are.  I could be wrong, though I doubt it.

See you on the Isle,
