Well, look here, it's an actual:

                            HOME GUARD SEMESTER IN REVIEW
                                 (Turns 323 to 336)

Yep, this covers the Summer '02 semester here in the Guard.  Sure, it's a little
late, but you folks wouldn't be getting this thing at all if it weren't for a fine
Gladiatorial Commission employee sneaking a couple old newsletters out to me to fill
in the gaps in my data.

It was a 14 turn semester, making it 1 turn shorter than the previous.  In addition,
this semester we started out with 26 active managers as compared to last semester's
23 (yay for growth).

Now, without any further rambling, I give you:

                    THE TOP 5 MANAGERS OF THE LAST SEMESTER
         Manager                        W   L      K      Rec  Percent

         Shadowgate                    64  44   0.00    57.36   59.25%
         Sultan                        58  42   0.00    26.80   58.00%
         Mgr of The War Hawks          14  13   0.00    32.66   51.85%
         * - Only currently active Managers with at least 18 fights were considered.
         The field consisted of  15  eligible managers.

Okay, so "Mo" (my nickname for the manager of the God Squad, since I don't have any
ID on him), manages to top the field this time around.  He also manages to top
Andarus's record of 72.72% from the summer of '01.  Nice job there, "Mo".  Also, just
for the sake of completeness, if I recall correctly, I nicknamed the manager of the
War Hawks, "Birdie-Boy".

Now, as much as I'm sure these folks would like me to continue rambling on and
delaying their humiliation, there's only so many words I can type and still remain at
least semi-coherent.  I mean, have you ever tried just rambling on and on with no
point whatsoever for any real length of time?  It's a lot harder than Debbie Tonte
makes it look, let me tell you.  So, with that in mind, I give you:

                 THE BOTTOM 5 MANAGERS OF THE LAST SEMESTER

          Drake                    19  22   0.00    42.25   46.34%
          * - Only currently active Managers with at least 18 fights were considered.

Nonononono.  That's not really me on that list.  It's an illusion.  It's all just a
figment of your imagination.  Pay no attention to my name being there whatsoever.  In
any case, it wasn't as bad as LHI's 23.33% from summer '01, but then again, none of
us were.  I guess that's what makes it a record.

Of course, some managers band together to form these alliance thingies.  I guess they
think it gives them some kind of advantage.  I think it's just so that they have a
regular circle of drinking buddies.  I've been to a Face, so I know.  In any case,
here's:

                          THE SEMESTER ALLIANCE RECORD

            * - Kills and Recognition are average per manager.
LBA:  TUM,
Minions of Diana:  Lord Andarus, Shadowgate, Umbra,

Yet one more time MOD manages to top the list.  Of course, it's no where near as good
as their best (which also happens to be the Semester Report Alliance Record) of
65.95% set in the winter of '00/'01.

As usual, if you've got an alliance here that's not listed in the report, or your
alliance is missing members, let me know so I can make sure it gets made fun of...I
mean 'reported' accurately.

             * - Only cities with at least 18 fights were considered.
             The field consisted of  18  eligible cities.

So, Aljafir (gesundheit) blows away Snowbound's 75% record from the winter of
'00/'01.  Not only that, but they did it against a field that consisted of 4 more
eligible cities than anyone competed against last time around.  Nice job.

Daiyla Kiv is once again at the bottom of the heap (just as they were on the last 2
reports).  They still aren't doing as badly as their record 22.22% set in the summer
of '01.  Alas, I had predicted that North Fork would end up among the top 5 cities,
but it was not to be.  At least they're staying off the bottom 5 though.

And we have a record-breaker here in the guard.  Fut Cough's 7 turn undefeated streak
places him (her? it?) as the #1 record, beating out the old record of Maelstrom's
(90.9%) set in the summer of '01.  In fact, our top 3 managed to overcome that
record.

On the other hand...

Hey, all the eligible warriors managed at least 2 wins.  That's an unusual feat here
in the Guard.  Of course, this means that Weary Willy still suffers the 'honor' of
holding the record of 0-14 from the summer of '01.

Continuing in my tradition of nicknaming the managers whose names I don't know, I
have dubbed the manager of Criminal Element to be "Jail Bird", Solaran Berserk is
"Captain Lolly Pop", The God Squad led by "Mo", Mercenary Tufts has "Tuf Ted" and
finally, Menagerie is fronted by "Various".  You don't like it, tell me your real
name.

In any case, "Jail Bird" has the best semester average recognition per warrior and
flies way past "Dorf's" (nickname for Tee Off's manager) old record of 87 points.
Similarly, ol' "JB" tops the single turn average as well, but isn't anywhere near
"Rudy's" (Scarlet Knights) record of 115.

Oh goodie, more nicknames:  "Sloppy Joe" manages Cream of the Slop, "Mr. Furious"
leads The Furious Five, "Mommy" captains The Mother Ship, "Friendless" hangs out with
Gerfel's Friends, and "Lord Acronym" is in charge of W.K.S.  Now that that's out of
the way, LHI is still the top dog (or maybe not) with an average semester loss of
-51.5.  Likewise, Sultan maintains his "dominance" with a single turn average loss of
-40, which Tualatin tried his best to beat.

Xochithlan's massive 106 point average rec gain still isn't quite enough to top
Andor's 117.5 point record.  Similarly, Erinika wasn't quite able to make it to
Arkers' 48 point single turn average.

A little less suckitude in the semester averages this time around and Lapur still
holds the distinction of having the worst average semester recognition loss with -65
points.  However, the single turn averages are a bit worse this time but still not
bad enough to dethrone Erinika and their -85 point average from summer '01.

Nemesis, being the studly kind of dude she is, not only blows past the competition
for the highest total recognition gain this semester, but she also nailed a new
record by passing Blackmyth's old record by a solid 41 points.  In the other column,
in spite of his generally sucky semester, Beerbarian managed the highest single turn
recognition gain.  It still wasn't enough to pass the 115 point record held by Talon
Warsmith.

record holder, Asteroid.  Not only that, but the old falling rock, himself, still
maintains dominance in the most recognition lost in a single turn as well with -114
points.

No one managed to stay Captain longer than 3 turns, which adds up to only 21.4% of
the last 14 turns.  This is well short of the record 40% of turns held jointly by
Noght and Grasshopper.  On the recognition front, Nemesis's 28.6% of turns as
Recognition Leader is way short of Earthquake's shattering 60% of turns.

Too Much Con 2 was the only Pop Leader last semester, and he does it again this
semester.  While it may seem like TMC2 has been Pop Leader forever, he did have a
predecessor in About Your Car who had been there for 67% of the available turns.
Beerbarian was our only TWF repeat this time around, and thus the record of 2 turns
(shared by way too many to list) still stands.  Come on, someone do more than 2
turns!  It would appear that Qrappy really loves the fans loathing, having spent 3
turns as This Week's Least favorite, which makes him the new record-holder at 21.4%
of the available turns (beating out the 20% jointly held by Baboo & Men In Black).

* - Scores based off position in Most Popular/Unpopular lists and averaged per turn.

You'll notice a slight change in how the Popularity Lists are being presented this
time around.  The scores are arrived at by giving the last person on the "Ten Other
Most Popular Fighters" list 1 point, 2nd to last gets 2 points, etc.  The "Other Ten
Least Popular Fighters" list works the same but with negative points.  Unfortunately,
that makes it hard to compare with the stats I used to keep, but tough.  I like this
way better and since I'm the one writing the report, you'll just have to live with
it.  So, nyah!

Unfortunately there were a couple turns where the Most Avoided and Most Avoiding
weren't reported in the newsletter, throwing off the stats a bit, but it looks like
Crip's the one most people fear this time out with 28.6% of turns as Most Avoided.
Of course, that doesn't match the 45% record set by me.  So, HA!  Similarly, Crip
once again tries to beat his old 53% record for doing the Most Avoiding, but only
pulled off 42.9% this time around.  Perhaps if there weren't so much Crip's Crap out
there, he wouldn't bear such a resemblance to a certain lion known to hang out in Oz.

DAGMAR viciously subdued ROT TEN EGGS in  12  minutes
FLINGLEBITS outlasted TANNIN in  12  minutes
* - The average fight length was 2.27 minutes.

Once again, Manager's Scumfest contest overshadows any of the performances relating
to fight length.  It almost doesn't seem worth reporting on.  On the other hand,
average fight length is 0.16 minutes longer than last semester's.

Dirt Worm's 82 minutes of napping (5.8 min per turn), while impressive and beating
Sir Vivor's 71 minute performance from last time(4.7 min per turn), still isn't
enough to match the 14,970 minute record set by Alfalfa Bird during the scumfest.
That's just sad.

* - Manager and city kills are average kills per warrior.

Manager and "Captain Lolly Pop" join "Rudy" in holding the Bloodthirsty Manager award
at 1.0 kills per warrior.  We still have no warriors managing more than 1 kill in a
semester.  Finally, Zukal & Dullens join Talcama & Morya with 1.0 kills per warrior.

And that brings us to the end of yet another Semester In Review.  You can all wake up
now.  Next time around, I'll bring out the report for Winter '02/'03 which will bring
us up to date.  My fingers hate you all.

Okay, this should bring us up to speed on our Semester Reporting.

                          THE HOME GUARD SEMESTER IN REVIEW
                                 (Turns 337 to 348)

A 12 turn semester for the winter of '02/'03 (2 shorter than the previous semester).
We ended the semester with a whopping 32 active managers which is 6 higher than last
time.  Looks like the 'Old Fogies' arena is catching on in popularity.

                  THE TOP 5 MANAGERS OF THE LAST SEMESTER

          * - Only currently active Managers with at least 18 fights were considered.
          The field consisted of  11  eligible managers.

For those who don't know (which means you aren't me), "Poncho" would be whoever
manages the Stormguards & Stormlords.  So, weatherboy, who the heck are you?  Well,
no matter who you are, you came out on top this semester, but it's not quite enough
to beat the 73.68% record held by "Mo" (the manager of the God Squad).  Also you'll
note (or I will) that I moved from the 'Bottom 5 Managers' list last time around into
the 'Top 5 Managers'.  You can't keep a good quacker down long.

                 THE BOTTOM 5 MANAGERS OF THE LAST SEMESTER

          * - Only currently active Managers with at least 18 fights were considered.

Again, we have a nicknamed manager.  If you'll recall, I've been referring to the
manager of The War Hawks as "Birdy Boy" since I've never gotten a real manager name
to go with the team.  Of course, considering the last place finish, the feathered one
may wish to remain anonymous.  Well, this fowl individual can take heart in the fact
that Andarus's 23.33% record is far more embarrassing and has stood since the Summer
of '01.

Once again the MoD prove their dominance here in the guard.  They came very close to
beating the record (also held by them), but came just shy of their 65.95% from Winter
'00/'01.

             The field consisted of  13  eligible cities.

We once again have a new top city, but they couldn't match Aljafir's massive 84.21%
record set in the last Semester Report.  Unfortunately, there's still no North Fork
on this list, but we're handicapped by slow managers.  Or something like that.

And there's an actual change in the worst city of the semester!  After Daiyla Kiv's 3
semesters at the bottom of the heap, not only are they replaced by Niania, but
they're not even among the bottom 5 any more.  So, who got kicked out of the guard?
Alas, Daiyla Kiv's 22.22% record will still haunt them as no other city's ever done
that badly for the history of the Semester Report.

Sorry, Nemesis, but Explicit just beats you out for the top spot this semester.
Still, your 22 straight turns undefeated is very impressive.  Too bad you couldn't
get all of them in the same semester.  Also of note, as far as the SR goes, Explicit
technically now has the record for best semester W/L percent, taking it from Fut
Cough (who's 7-0-0 pales in comparison).

Weary Willy's 0-14 record stands as the number to beat(?) for another semester.  I
certainly hope he's getting in some well-deserved napping these days.

First off, a few introductions:  "L. Flint" runs Censored, "Scrap Iron's" in charge
of Junkyard Wars, "Rhandy" is president for life of Puerco's Pinata, "Friendless" is
still hanging around Gerfel's Friends and "Shades" is leading Blind Luck.  Right, now
that that's done, I have to say that "Flint's" Semester Recognition per Warrior
average is so far ahead of old 106 point record (by "Jail Bird" of Criminal Element)
that it's just scary.  "Shades" wasn't quite so lucky as his 46 point Turn
Recognition per Warrior average doesn't come anywhere near the record 115 points held
by "Rudy" of Scarlet Knights.

Now for a few more introductions:  "Half Mast" gets his salutes from Flagg 16,
"Perky" cheers on Lo' Down, "Mr. Furious" keeps the Furious Five on their toes and
"Sequel" handles Mortal Kombat IV.  Now, it should be noted that LHI's -51.5 Semester
loss easily holds its dominance as the biggest semester drop ever.  Not only that,
but Sultan's place in history is secure with his -40 turn drop (though "Rhandy" made
a good effort of it).

Andor still holds strong with the best Semester Recognition Average at 117.5 points.
Shadow Grove came much closer to overtaking Arker's record, but fell just 2 points
short.

The loud sucking sound of Zukal's performance wasn't quite enough to drown out
Lapur's -65 point record.  On the other hand, Jhelum's -202 point average for a
single turn not only exceeds terminal velocity, but it blows right past Erinika's -85
point record.

Nemesis, this just wasn't your semester as Explicit just beat your Semester
Recognition record by 73 points!  The Single Turn Recognition record still stands,
however, as Qrappy couldn't come close to Talon Warsmith's 115 points.

Nem, I guess you can take solace in knowing that you still have a place in the
history books as your -202 point turn not only broke the sound barrier, but it also
broke Asteroid's -114 point record.  That old hunk o' rock still has the distinction
of the worst Semester Total with -89 points overall.

So close to a perfect run, yet so far.  Still, it's enough to claim both the
Captaincy and Recognition Leader records with 91.67% of turns in both positions.  The
old records were 40% (Noght and Grasshopper) and 60% (Earthquake) respectively.

Too Much Con 2 is no longer the Popularity Leader!  Of course, now we're back to
About Your Car..., who was TMC2's predecessor.  So, AYC joins TMC2 in having perfect
semesters for Popularity Leader.  We didn't have any repeats as This Week's Favorite,
much less have anyone break the 2 turn record held by way too many people.  In the
rotten veggies department, Qrappy's 21.4% of turns as This Week's Least Favorite will
stay the record for another semester.

Gree Chak's 3.5 popularity score beats out Rashid's 3.36 from last Semester, and thus
a record is set.  On the negative side, Splurge on Wax Lips gets to be the record
holder with the -2.79 pulled in last semester.

I don't believe I've told you who "Mommy" is yet, and that would be the manager of
The Mothership.  Regardless of that, it doesn't look like anyone's managed more than
2 turns as Most Avoided, so my being Most Avoided 45% of turns remains the record.
Go me!  In other news, my spending 58.33% of last semester's turns doing the Most
Avoiding puts allows me to take Crip's position as most yella.  Hmm...  Both Most
Feared and Most Fearful.  That says something about me, but I'm not sure what.  Oh,
yeah, the old record was 53% when Crip held it.

25 minutes ain't bad, but it seems like HG should produce longer fights.  After all,
this was the home of the Scumfest held by manager that produced fights 1000s of
minutes long.  Average fight length rose again, this time by .08 minutes.  Look out,
someone might actually be able to make it to the bathroom and back again during the
average fight.

W.T. Pooh's 81 total minutes doesn't quite meet Dirt Worm's 82 minutes from last
semester, but let's face it, with a 14,970 minute Scumfest win, I should just go
ahead and retire Alfalfa Bird's record.

WORF                 NED THE JANITOR -44 (Now how much honor is there in

VAL BEMERIKI         GLORY           -20 (I fail to see the glory in this challenge).
* - Challenges by the Recognition Leader were excluded.
* - The average recognition difference for a challenge was 8.90 points.

The average recognition difference on challenges was up this semester, but still not
quite up to our 9.01 record.

                                  KILLS REPORT
Total Kills:   5 (.42 per turn; less than last semester and way down from our 1.2 per
turn record.)
Manager             Kills|Warrior              ID    Kills|City                 Kills

* - Manager and city kills are average kills per warrior.

"Shades" takes the record with a whopping 4 kills per warrior this semester (the old
record was 1 held by a bunch of managers).  Rogan's the only warrior with more than
one kill in a semester (not bad for someone starting this semester with 1 FE
showing).  So, that puts Shadow Grove as the only city with a higher than 1 kill per
warrior average, giving it the record.

And there you have it.  Two semester reports in one turn.  My gods, I'm insane.  Now
I know why Olaf's dead.

The Isle of the Eye, Talahya:

     "Okay," Carris Fallstar said, "how do we tackle your two angles?  How do we find
where the, uh, 'magical links' that bind the Isle to Alastari are located?"
     Everyone turned to look at Moonjumper, who frowned at the ground between her
feet.  "I'm not sure," she said slowly, "but I might--only might--be able to identify
them.  But it would help a LOT if I had some idea, however vague, of what the
identifying characteristics of such a site WERE."
     All eyes now moved to the old wizard.  Fizban sighed.  "I suppose 'used to be
strongly magical but nothing working there now' is not enough?"
     "You suppose correctly!" Carris muttered.  "What an idea--used to be...."  He
shook his head.  "The Isle positively reeks of magic, past and present, and well you
must know it, if you're any kind of wizard at all!"
     "Look," Scarlatti interrupted, "I don't know much about magic, but it stands to
reason that the kind we're talking about would be different than, um, regular magic,
and a lot more powerful.  There must be some way to tell that?"
     There was a silence that seemed long.
     Finally Rogan said, "What about the ferry docks?  That's where the physical
connections are anchored, so why shouldn't the magical connections be in the same
locations?"
     "Sounds good," Scarlatti agreed.  "Can you lead us to a ferry dock through this
fog?"
     The blind gladiator smiled faintly.  "Easily."  He set off down the street, and
the others fell in behind him.
     The city was mostly silent, and the gladiators met no one as they hurried toward
the shore.  There were people about--now and then they could hear footsteps fading
away, or voices just too muffled to be understandable.  The fog was so heavy that
even their immediate surroundings seemed unreal.  A sound shook the air, heavy as a
mountain, dull as despair.  It was repeated six times.
     "Gods!"  Fizban wiped sweat from his face.
     "What was it?" Carris asked, one hand on his sword.
     "A clock tolling the hour of seven," Moonjumper guessed, but she sounded unsure
of it.  "Maybe the one at the Stronghold Academy...."
     "It never sounded like that before," Scarlatti growled.
     "Another sign of the differences here and now, wherever and whenever here and
now is."  Rogan pulled his cloak a little more snugly around himself, though the
evening was no colder now than it had been an hour ago.  Or maybe it was colder.  It
was impossible to be sure.
     Sooner than they expected, the cobbles underfoot changed to planks, and the
smell of the air changed from stone and fog to mud and fish and water.
     Carris Fallstar stopped and sniffed, then drew in a lungful of air and seemed to
taste it slowly.  "Salt water, I could swear it smells like salt water," he muttered.
     "But the lake is fresh!" Scarlatti protested.
     "But is this the lake we remember?" Fizban asked.  "I doubt it."

The Isle of the Eye, Lirin Kiv:

     The carriage jolted as though the pavement had suddenly ended, rolled a few feet
farther, and stopped.  After a moment, there was a creaking shift as the driver
climbed down.  Shylock glimpsed his lantern moving through the fog, going ahead past
the horses, then coming back.
     The face that appeared at the window was white, eyes round with disbelief.  "The
road is lost," the driver said hoarsely.
     Shylock frowned at him.  "You mean YOU are lost--"
     "No!  I swear, I was following the road right along, and then it...it just
wasn't there anymore!"
     Shylock looked hard at the driver and decided the man wasn't lying.  He might be
mistaken, but he believed what he was saying.  And if he wasn't mistaken....  Well,
better to find out for himself, the gladiator decided.  He unlatched the door and
stepped down from the carriage.  "Wait here," he said over his shoulder to Clemenda.
     "Not hardly!"  She climbed down after him.
     The driver held up his lantern, swinging it from side to side, which set shadows
swooping wildly.  Shylock took the lantern away from him and held it steady.
     It was true.  A pace behind the rear wheels of the carriage were the flat stones
of the roadway.  Under the wheels and ahead was rocky dirt and tangled grasses and no
sign that there'd ever been a road.
     "Amazing," Shylock murmured, "this is something quite without precedent, so far
as I know.  I wonder what else has changed?"
     "Don't say that!"  Clemenda looked around fearfully.  "I like things to be
ordinary," she whispered, "no surprises...."
     "It would appear that surprises are the name of the entertainment tonight,"
Shylock countered.  "Still....  Driver, take us back the way we came, to Lirin Kiv."
     The man hurried to climb back onto the box as Shylock assisted Clemenda into the
body of the carriage again.  The horses were turned, and they went rumbling back onto
the paving and southward...or at least, back.  No telling if it was still south.
Shylock leaned out the window to watch ahead.  Even in this fog, it should be
possible to see the lighted tower of the Temple of Mantor for a fair distance.
Judging the current speed of the horses against the pace at which they had come out,
it should be possible to see it now.
     But he didn't see it.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Drake, good work there.  But now you see why I face each spy report with 
trepidation and a drink in my hand (no umbrella by request).  I could tell you most 
of the missing manager names, I think, but I'm looking forward to their comments in 
the personals.

     If last time was hot, next time must be hottest, because this week is definitely 
hotter.  How you all could get out there and fight is an amazement.  I always 
d'ruthered do my fighting in Octorber, and maybe April, and spend the rest of the 
time just sitting around.  Once you youngsters get a few more years on the clock, 
you'll see the wisdom of that.
     Royal Flush most avoided by The Stormguards.  Snide seemed to think that was 
something shameful, but it just sounds like sense to me.  Snide never had any sense, 
wouldn't know what it was if it walked up and bit him on the, uh, nose.  Bubbles got 
the most challenges, what with everyone wanting to get into the bathtub with a fun-
loving woman like that.
     Forty-five fights, no deaths, twenty-seven challenge matches, only one standby.  
A good showing.  That puts us up there between Darkholm and Andorak somewhere, though 
Free Blades is ahead of everything but Primus and Talahya.  Well, maybe Gateway, I 
don't pay any attention to that.

     So, just to work a quick, sweaty way through the fights, here they are:
     AVARICIOUS AVON (63-2388) (17-12-0,63) of TOMATO ENFORCER fought OSIRIS (19-
4111) (23-16-1,74) of ANARCHY.  AVARICIOUS AVON was demolished by OSIRIS in an 
exciting 1 minute one-sided conflict.  Enforcing tomatoes isn't the same as dueling.  
Probably better than no practice, though.
     NESSIE (33-6755) (16-9-0,57) of OF MYTHOS AND MEN fought KHARN (51-2997) (30-33-
4,83) of COLD STEEL.  NESSIE was handily defeated by KHARN in an action packed 2 
minute mismatched bout.  Hey, if somebody offered me cold anything, I'd probably go 
along with it.
     PREACHER (7-5083) (16-5-2,55) of THRILLZ & KILLZ fought HAPPY JACK (19-4086) 
(30-21-2,84) of THE MOTHERSHIP.  PREACHER was vanquished by HAPPY JACK in a 1 minute 
one-sided bout.  I could probably come up with a mildly insulting play on words for 
Preacher, but what the heck, the guy had an unlucky match-up and lost.  He doesn't 
need me throwing bricks at him, too, does he?
     TORATORATORRES (11-726) (20-17-0,90) of U.B.O.S.M. fought NO CHASER (33-6490) 
(23-16-0,66) of JOYS OF BOOZE.  TORATORATORRES was overpowered by NO CHASER in a 1 
minute one-sided battle.  You shoulda had a chaser, Toratoratorres.
     MIME (2-4966) (17-10-2,64) of HARLEQUINS fought NUTT BRITTLE (19-3983) (16-6-
0,54) of CARNIVAL.  MIME handily defeated NUTT BRITTLE in an exciting 1 minute one-
sided conflict.  This is one of the mimes gladiators always talk about that fight 
better than the opponents they have just defeated.
     JUGGLER (2-4965) (20-8-0,71) of HARLEQUINS fought STARBUCK (6-5387) (19-13-0,69) 
of SCIENCE FICTION.  JUGGLER was savagely defeated by STARBUCK in an exciting 3 
minute bloody brawl.  I figure it's the caffeine.
     SULTAN (10-4516) (21-6-0,69) of SIR AGLIO fought NED THE JANITOR (66-2973) (16-
19-0,69) of ANDORIAN UNIVERSITY.  SULTAN lost to NED THE JANITOR in a 1 minute 
conflict.  (sigh)  They just don't make janitors like they used to.  Why I remember 
one, a crotchety old guy, couldn't catch a snail if he saw one littering....
     ODEN WARFIEND (11-1335) (23-15-2,91) of U.B.O.S.M. fought SISYPHUS (14-3906) 
(20-16-0,84) of THE DEATH SQUAD.  ODEN WARFIEND was vanquished by SISYPHUS in a 1 
minute one-sided struggle.  So much for being a war fiend; no good when a big rock 
drops on your head, eh?
     SPAZZ (33-6207) (29-22-0,126) of SNOTZI'S II fought BURGER KING (47-4152) (26-
18-2,99) of ROYAL FLUSH.  SPAZZ vanquished BURGER KING in an exciting 1 minute 
gruesome one-sided match.  I could vanquish a burger king, except for the onions.  I 
don't do onions.
     X THE BOLD (10-16) (50-46-1,131) of WAR HAWKS fought QUEEN AMAZONIA (12-4796) 
(28-33-1,91) of DARKMOON.  X THE BOLD vanquished QUEEN AMAZONIA in an exciting 1 
minute bloody mismatched bout.  I hear what happened in the hallway afterward was 
more exciting, as Queen A. stated her opinion of people who try to rip other people's 
clothes off.
     MASHER (60-4553) (28-29-3,117) of JOKA MASHER! fought DELICE THE RED (56-3401) 
(34-39-1,132) of BAD APPLES.  MASHER lost to DELICE THE RED in a popular 1 minute 
bout.  Yep, that's a BAAAAD apple.
     TANNIN (65-4409) (35-23-2,163) of CRIMSON PEGASI fought TICKLES (9-3486) (32-48-
1,113) of MY PETS.  TANNIN subdued TICKLES in an exciting 3 minute conflict.  Some 
people rise above tickling.
     SIR CUITOUS (10-4514) (32-18-0,164) of SIR AGLIO fought HUNGRY HAROLD (101-29) 
(0-0-0,200) of Local Louts.  SIR CUITOUS was savagely defeated by HUNGRY HAROLD in a 
popular 5 minute brutal fray.  Better to pit Hungry Harold against Burger King, don't 
you think?  It'd be a match made in, er, somewhere.
     CRUSADER LORD (31-3946) (30-17-3,162) of THE STORMGUARDS fought HOT HAZEL (98-
608) (14-18-4,150) of JUNKYARD WARS.  CRUSADER LORD devastated HOT HAZEL in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute one-sided battle.  Cooled her right off.
     PRIMUS (21-4975) (28-10-0,203) of REAL BEER fought STELLA BLUE (53-6167) (23-11-
1,185) of PUERCO'S PINATA.  PRIMUS subdued STELLA BLUE in an action packed 6 minute 
gory contest.  So, why is Primus not in Primus, eh?
     SPAZ GHOST (47-4161) (36-14-1,193) of DRAKE'S COMICS fought 50 SUCKS (60-4129) 
(44-29-0,170) of JOKA MASHER!  SPAZ GHOST was overpowered by 50 SUCKS in a 3 minute 
uneven bout.  Ah, but wait until the Ghost gets that old!
     DIRT WORM (82-2315) (47-22-0,195) of VERMIN!! fought SUNNY BRAE (53-5638) (33-
24-1,187) of PUERCO'S PINATA.  DIRT WORM narrowly defeated SUNNY BRAE in an exciting 
13 minute fight.  Thirteen minutes is too long in this heat.
     LUDO (18-708) (48-55-2,191) of THUNDR + LITENING fought QRAPPY (10-4761) (26-43-
1,168) of QUBIT.  LUDO viciously subdued QRAPPY in an exciting 6 minute brutal fight.  
Heck, SIX minutes is too long.
     Ah, the challenge matches.  Or perhaps in some cases the challenge mis-matches.
     SABLE (2-4950) (23-9-2,80) of HARLEQUINS challenged MIDNIGHT FAITH (75-2651) 
(17-11-1,85) of PARANOID ASYLUM.  Up 5.  SABLE was savagely defeated by MIDNIGHT 
FAITH in a popular 3 minute Challenge fight.  I'd like to go into this question of 
Midnight faith as opposed to other kinds, but a runner from the printer is standing 
outside my door tapping his foot.  Spoilsport.
     GOSSAMER (98-407) (7-6-4,28) of PERFECTION QUEST challenged LETHE (9-4782) (20-
14-2,41) of BLUE MOON.  Up 13.  GOSSAMER was overpowered by LETHE in a 1 minute 
uneven Challenge competition.  I think this may be Lethe's first win here?
     OURS ROUGE (3-6049) (15-17-1,49) of THE REDBAERS challenged SOUL SCOURGE (25-
1223) (15-8-2,57) of THE ILLUMINATI.  Up 8.  OURS ROUGE was viciously subdued by SOUL 
SCOURGE in a 2 minute Challenge bout.  Rumor has it that Soul Scourge has redecorated 
his room with a bear-skin rug.
     ANDAR (11-1038) (16-10-1,44) of U.B.O.S.M. challenged BABOO (74-2711) (38-85-
0,65) of WILD AMINALS.  Up 21.  ANDAR won victory over BABOO in an action packed 4 
minute Challenge bout.  I love to see these fossils go down.
     KATANA (62-3769) (8-7-0,70) of SAMURAI KIDS II challenged NASTY NITTERS (63-
2383) (14-18-2,57) of TOMATO ENFORCER.  Down 13.  KATANA viciously subdued NASTY 
NITTERS in a popular 2 minute brutal Challenge fight.  Now is the time for all 
tomatoes to break loose and riot, since both enforcers are going to be washing dishes 
for a couple of weeks.
     LUNA TYCK (33-5761) (26-25-1,65) of DRAKE'S PETTING ZOO challenged CARRIE NATION 
(64-4054) (28-60-0,68) of REFORMERS.  Up 3.  LUNA TYCK was overpowered by CARRIE 
NATION in a 2 minute uneven Challenge fight.  And to what alcoholic excess does the 
Tyck owe this loss, hmm?
     GIOVANNA (37-387) (24-24-5,76) of COLD STEEL challenged MOD COD (55-2638) (36-
65-1,81) of RHYME TYME.  Up 5.  GIOVANNA was defeated by MOD COD in a 1 minute 
Challenge match.  Laid low by a fish in bell bottoms.  Or something like that.  The 
peculiarity of it all.
     TICKLE ME ELMO (50-3151) (15-11-0,58) of OPEN SESAME challenged GREASESPOT (60-
5964) (19-27-0,85) of BUMS 'R' US.  Up 27.  TICKLE ME ELMO was vanquished by 
GREASESPOT in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fray.  Since Greasy's name wasn't Elmo, 
he ignored the bad advice....
     ROT TEN EGGS (47-3099) (26-29-0,69) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged MEN IN BLACK (49-
3157) (38-87-1,68) of RPG'S.  Down 1.  ROT TEN EGGS subdued MEN IN BLACK in an action 
packed 6 minute Challenge bout.  I know Home Guard's the place for the old fossils, 
but there are a few who might profitably turn their energies to some other activity, 
such as sleeping.
     XISS (11-1305) (22-23-4,90) of U.B.O.S.M. challenged KOOKABURRA (33-4151) (37-
51-1,90) of GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.  Straight across.  XISS was devastated by KOOKABURRA 
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge bout.  Not bad, but what happened to Thin Mint?
     HUNZICKER BOWL (23-4182) (23-12-1,53) of SKI TAOS challenged HALLIE O'DENE (58-
6018) (34-52-0,92) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  Up 39.  HUNZICKER BOWL was defeated by 
HALLIE O'DENE in a 1 minute Challenge conflict.  I heard--just a rumor, mind you--
that Hallie plans to fill the Bowl with chili and crackers.  Can anyone confirm this?
     JOE KING (47-2223) (25-40-0,100) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged COM DOT (65-6217) 
(30-19-0,122) of TOO GOOD FOR ME.  Up 22.  JOE KING was overpowered by COM DOT in a 1 
minute one-sided Challenge bout.  Too good for Joe, too.
     NEVERMORE (1-5260) (16-15-2,94) of LAB EXPERIMENTS challenged BUDDERCUP (60-
5967) (26-20-0,96) of BUMS 'R' US.  Up 2.  NEVERMORE was unbelievably bested by 
BUDDERCUP in an exciting 2 minute Challenge fight.  What's not to believe?  Why 
shouldn't Bud win?
     STEVE MCQUEEN (47-3908) (25-29-1,104) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged MISER (71-3793) 
(34-12-2,127) of SHADOW GOLD.  Up 23.  STEVE MCQUEEN vanquished MISER in a crowd 
pleasing 8 minute one-sided Challenge fray.  Free spending is all well and good, but 
to keep throwing coins to the fans for EIGHT minutes... well, no wonder Miser went 
nuts and lost.
     FOREVER MAN (38-4168) (26-34-0,121) of SANDS OF TIME challenged STRONGEST #3 
(40-173) (41-82-1,141) of SOLARAN BERSERK.  Up 20.  FOREVER MAN was handily defeated 
by STRONGEST #3 in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  At least this didn't take 
forever.
     WAHOO (26-3916) (21-13-1,137) of HERE TO PHOENIX challenged EMERALD DRAGONFLY 
(60-2586) (53-57-1,145) of MAGICK.  Up 8.  WAHOO demolished EMERALD DRAGONFLY in a 1 
minute one-sided Challenge brawl.  And do you also tear the wings off flies?  Nah, 
just sorta joking, but the idea appealed to my visual sense, you know?
     LOOMING BIRD (82-424) (39-52-3,142) of YOU FEEL THAT! challenged JACK SPRAT (47-
2954) (42-48-4,132) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Down 10.  LOOMING BIRD was handily defeated by 
JACK SPRAT in a 1 minute Challenge contest.  Hey, if there was some damned bird 
looming over ME, I'd get out of the arena fast, too!
     TALOS (31-2069) (37-15-0,111) of THE STORMGUARDS challenged BUBBLES (12-4981) 
(21-34-1,112) of POWERPUFF GIRLS.  Up 1.  TALOS demolished BUBBLES in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge match.  Popped a bubble here, flattened one there....
     POPE PAUL II (79-1317) (21-10-0,119) of CHAPEL ROCK challenged VAL BEMERIKI (51-
5018) (32-20-3,151) of GENOCIDE.  Up 32.  POPE PAUL II overcame VAL BEMERIKI in a 
popular 3 minute Challenge bout.  Okay, but does she get absolution for all her 
genocides?
     SORROW (1-2863) (24-20-2,172) of SWEORDMASTERS challenged R'SHANN (20-577) (39-
33-3,177) of OVERLORDS.  Up 5.  SORROW was overpowered by R'SHANN in a 1 minute one-
sided Challenge fight.  Bet he/she/it is sorry for that challenge, now.
     MISS WORLD (52-2370) (28-26-1,178) of THE FURIOUS FIVE challenged W.T. POOH (33-
4430) (51-36-0,182) of SNOTZI'S II.  Up 4.  MISS WORLD vanquished W.T. POOH in an 
action packed 5 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  That was an inspired use of honey, 
Miss W.
     MUSILAR DE MITTEL (53-5753) (29-14-0,154) of PUERCO'S PINATA challenged 
HYSTERIAS (19-4047) (26-24-3,161) of ANARCHY.  Up 7.  MUSILAR DE MITTEL handily 
defeated HYSTERIAS in a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  Somebody offer Hysterias 
some lithium, or whatever is the tranquilizer du jour.  It's calm and collected that 
wins fights.
     BEAUTY QUEEN (47-3352) (29-31-3,202) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged ABOUT YOUR CAR... 
(78-778) (94-129-6,189) of BAD NEWS.  Down 14.  BEAUTY QUEEN vanquished ABOUT YOUR 
CAR... in a 3 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Er, make that calm, collected, and 
dazzlingly blonde.
     FANNY BELT (28-1804) (35-22-1,204) of OTTO'S MECHANICS challenged BLACK RHINO 
(71-1834) (34-17-1,214) of EDGE OF EXTINCTION.  Up 10.  FANNY BELT demolished BLACK 
RHINO in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge competition.  One step nearer extinction.
     WURP (10-18) (43-46-1,190) of WAR HAWKS challenged KAIDEN (35-3108) (66-72-
1,198) of VIOLENT FEMS.  Up 8.  WURP was bested by KAIDEN in a popular 1 minute gory 
Challenge contest.  Kaiden is not called "violent" as somebody's idea of a joke.
     UU DOEWANAKNO (73-1414) (16-3-0,51) of DRAKE'S LODGE TV challenged SKI MASK (58-
5869) (24-43-0,62) of CIRQUE DU MASQUES.  Up 11.  UU DOEWANAKNO devastated SKI MASK 
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Can the Duck beat ANYBODY here?  Tune in 
next week and you won't see, I bet.
     And for the title:  CAFFIENE ACHIEVER (15-2429) (33-33-4,211) of DRAKE'S BAR-B-Q 
challenged ROLEX WATCH (32-3732) (36-25-0,233) of LUST MUPPETS.  Up 22.  CAFFIENE 
ACHIEVER demolished ROLEX WATCH in a 1 minute Challenge Title melee.  Way to GO, 
Caffiene.  Write us a column.

#3 -- Tuft Tuggers aren't currently active here, unfortunately. -- Generalissimo
Puerco

     Too hot.

Val Bemeriki -- May you choke on a piece of apple peel.  Or, wait!  I'll get an apple
from the Wicked Stepmother and you can have THAT one! -- Delice the Red

Luna Tyck -- It's my collar.  Not high fashion, perhaps, but it keeps the tycks away.
-- Hallie O'Dene

Katana -- You probably EAT EGGS, you disgusting mammal!  I should have KNOWN. -- Ski
Mask, Founder and President Ducks With Swords

     Well, yeah, you should have known.

Andar -- And well your fans SHOULD fall silent!  I saw them buying you drinks last
night--I don't say they were responsible for your loss, because I'm better than you
are, but they probably had a lot to do with the fact that you couldn't seem to stand
up straight or focus on anything.  Let this be a LESSON to you, young man: do not
drink and duel! -- Carrie Nation

Happy Jack -- I hate people who are cheerful in the arena. -- Lethe

Drake -- YOU are a Duck?  Why do you wear that mammal suit, then?  Ah!  A disguise,
so you can spy on the furry fiends?  Good thinking. -- Ski Mask

Strongest #3 -- Glad am I that you got that train AFTER our encounter. -- Qrappy,
living up to the name

Commission -- I HATE Ninja Ferd. -- Masher

     Lots of people do, but we gotta use the standbys we can get.

Forever Man -- Forever tall!  Yikes! -- W.T. Pooh

Doc Steele -- So where's that hefty downchallenge you spoke of?  I can't wait.  Is/
was it a size downchallenge? -- Sultan

10 May 2003
To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

15 May 2003
Assurnasirbanipal invites all to use his computerized warrior management tool.  The
program is the most extensive management tool ever created.  It was meant to run on a
PALM OS PDA, but will run (emulated) on a PC or MAC.  You can get this program on the
web at: http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir

27 May 2003
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.
