                         THE FREE BLADES SEMESTER IN REVIEW
                                 (Turns 350 to 363)

A nice, long 14-turn semester this time around.  Yes, this time I did get all the
semester's turns rather than screwing up and missing the first turn of the semester
like I did last time.  In any case, on turn 349, we had 27 managers listed in the
newsletter.  Finishing things up this time around on turn 363, we had 24 managers for
a net loss of 3 managers.  Hmmm...don't tell me people actually prefer Talahya to
here.

            * - Kills & Rec are averaged per warrior per turn.
            * - Only those managers with at least 21 fights were considered.
                There were 21 eligible managers.

While an impressive showing by the 'Slosher, Sylvester ended up nearly 10% behind the
record-holding Sandman (78.94%).  Still, he ended up far ahead of the rest of this
semester's competition.  Fourth & fifth places were obviously tightly contested
(between yet another pair of 'Sloshers no less).  Gee, I never noticed there were so
many members of the Frothing-clan around here before.  Awfully quiet.  What, cat's
got your tongues?  Haven't got anything to say unless you're picking on Andorians or
something?  (Maybe that'll get them to speak up.)

We had no repeats from last semester among the Top 5, which is a tad surprising.
Looks like I was the only one to move all the way from the Bottom 5 to the Top 5 in
this past semester.  Let's see if anyone managed to go the opposite direction.

            -------------------------------------------------------

Yukon managed to go from one of the Top 5 all the way down to the Bottom 5.  On a
related note, THawk was the only repeat among the bottom five.  Kind of surprising
that no one else repeated, but there you have it.  Jorja, who ended up at the bottom
of the heap this time, still did better than Terrablood's 33.33% from last semester.

DOA:  Father, Manager, Shadowgate and Yukon
FONZ:  The Sentinel
Frothingsloshers:  Basically, anyone with the last name Frothingslosh.
The Firm:  Sungod and Youngblood

The FONZ tops the list this time out, but it probably helps that I think they've only
had 1 active warrior.  The Firm appears to be in a similar boat.  Of those alliances
that are actually running several warriors, it's the 'Sloshers who top the list, but
it's BOB that proved the most bloodthirsty this time out.

Jhelum blows away Lapur's 66.07% performance from last semester.  Very nice showing.
We had absolutely no repeats among the top cities and similarly, no cities moved from
Bottom 5 to Top 5.

As bad a time as the city of Vithicar had, it wasn't as bad as Aradi's 31.81% from
last semester.  Khalani & Dullens both repeat on the Bottom 5 list and none of last
semester's Top 5 ended up in the Bottom 5 this time around.

Now we get to something a little new, a break down of how cities from different
regions did as a whole.  Unfortunately, it's those durned furriners from Darkholm &
Lirith Kai out-performing our own true Freebladers.  That's just not right.  Also, it
looks like the Normal Turnaround arenas easily out-did the Slow arenas, but that's
kind of expected.  After all, those from a Normal schedule are used to our 2-week
turnaround while those from Slow arenas aren't.

                 There were 102 eligible warriors.

One thing you'll notice is that the rankings don't go strictly by percentages this
time.  That's because I'm experimenting with a new scoring system for the rankings.
It's the fault of certain managers in North Fork (Crip & Spawn) who complained about
5-0 wonders topping the list there.  So, in an effort to indulge the whiners, I'm
trying out something new.  Of course, they'll probably find something else to
complain about now....

In any case, Nemesis proved to be so for everyone with a pretty freakin' dominant
performance that certainly bypasses Steve Dallas's 10-1 (90.9%) from last semester.
However, Steve Dallas was our only Top 10 repeat and no one went Bottom 10 to Top 10.

Beer's record, though bad, still includes a win; unlike Joelean's 0-6 last semester
(and yes, an 0-6 would have made the list under the new scoring system).  No repeats
on the Bottom 10 (though I wonder just how many got sent to Home Guard last semester;
I know at least 1 did) and no one dropped all the way from Top 10 to Bottom 10.

Again, an impressive showing by the Putty Tat, but far, far short of Manager's 14.73
Semester Average from last semester.  That may have something to do with the fact
that I'm pretty sure Manager was only running 1 warrior here last semester.  On the
single turn front, Boz once again tops the list, this time blowing away his old
single turn average of 43.66.  In fact, his 3rd place showing also beats that old
record.

Coeur tries but fails to make a name for himself in the Semester Report by under-
performing A-Sop's -2.33 Rec Average from last semester.  Of course, I'm not sure
that's how he wants to be distinguished.  In other interesting news, not only do we
have a new single turn loss record (over Team Floyd's -60), it's Boz from the
*Highest* Single Turn list!  I guess Boz was feeling particularly yo-yo-ish this past
semester.

Jhelum, though topping the average list this time around, doesn't quite manage
Andor's 6.73 point average from last semester.  On the other hand, Tobir easily flew
past Lyratilan's 45 point turn from last time (as did the 2nd place Shadow Grove;
which should be renamed Shadow Groove as that's the way I want to type it).

Vithicar was well below the competition this semester, but still managed to fair
better than Kaltos's -6.82 from last time out.  Similarly, it's Bonsur that maintains
the worst single turn drop with -110 points from last semester.

Nemesis just barely squeaks past Chalice's 14.73 point average for last semester.
Nicely done.  Scarlatti, on the other hand, just barely fell short of Scrooge's 99
point turn from the last report.

Beag Magda just barely losses more recognition on average than Runequest, but doesn't
do quite as bad as Lysear's -6.82 from last semester.  On the other hand, Ultimate
Fury pulls off the Ultimate Drop to out-skimp Scrooge (-152) for the most recognition
lost in a single turn.

So, Nemesis sat on top for 10 of the last 14 turns (71.43% of available turns), which
beats out Chalice's 54.55% record.  64.29% of turns as Rec Leader isn't quite as
impressive, but still enough to easily beat Chalice's 36.36% from last time out.

Once again it's the narcoleptic pooch that everyone loves to watch.  I really don't
see why.  It's a sleeping dog.  Sure, you're supposed to let them lie, but watch
them?  In any case, we actually had a couple repeats for This Week's Favorite in
White Knight and Hermes (2 each).  Now, someone go 3 turns as TWF.  I dare you.  In
other news, I always thought Beer was rather popular, but actually topped the Least
Popular list more than anyone else with 28.57% of turns and beats Rocki Roads'
audience donated tossed salads by nearly a full 1%.

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

Popularity scores are being computed a little differently this time out.  If you'll
recall from my explanation last time, the first warrior on the 'Other Ten Most
Popular Warriors' list got 10 points.  Second place got 9 and so on.  Least Popular
worked the same way with negative points.  The difference this time out, however, is
that I gave 11 points for This Week's Favorite and -11 for Least Popular, giving us a
better perspective of who the really exciting up-and-comers are.  Of course, that
also means I can't really compare with last semester's performances.

be caught in public (or private for that matter) with Sylvester.  Now, being avoided
for 71.43% of the available turns means that Sylvester more than doubles the old
record of 27.27% (held by the manager of the Jaguar Warriors).  Helping that spraying
feline achieve that goal was the aforementioned Rillion who's 57.14% of turns doing
the most avoiding actually beats my record of 54.54%.  Whew!

                    THE 5 LONGEST FIGHTS OF THE LAST SEMESTER
THE BIG MEOW outlasted JOELEAN in 20 minutes.
BANKRUPT narrowly defeated FUNNY BUNNY in 13 minutes.
LIMA BEAN FLAMBE was outwaited by THE BIG MEOW in 11 minutes.
ARTEMISIA was outlasted by STUMP in 9 minutes.
BANKRUPT luckily beat GROGGY DOGGY in 9 minutes.
SNAP CRACKLE PUP savagely defeated KOOSH BALL in 9 minutes.
THE BIG MEOW unbelievably bested SCOURGE in 9 minutes.
ULTIMATE FURY narrowly defeated FUNNY BUNNY in 9 minutes.
VENRIC was outlasted by THE BIG MEOW in 9 minutes.
* - The average fight time was 1.91 minutes (up from last semester's 1.76).

Not only does The Big Meow have the longest fight this time out, it beats Zues's
record for this arena of 16 minutes and any of the fight times in Home Guard this
last semester.  So, how does it feel to be scummier than most Home Guard warriors?

In addition, The Big Meow racked up 86 total minutes this past semester and that
average beats out the godly record of 4.64 minutes/turn held by Zues.  So, how does
it feel to be able to out-scum a god?

Here's another new thing I'm including in this report; who were the most dominant

pulls off the most dominant domination of a style this past semester.  Incidentally,
I claim Dr. Scum as being a more dominant TP than Bankrupt by virtue of actually
appearing on the Top 10 warriors list.

Boz tops another list (though tied by Coeur due to rounding), but doesn't quite match
Khyron's killing record of .045 per warrior per turn.  Once again, we had a whole
bunch of warriors managing only one kill.  Someone get 2 kills already!  And wrapping
things up, Bonsur's kill average isn't quite enough to dethrone Sentern's .045
record.

Well, it's been, and I mean that.  Until the next split, this has been....

Malcorn:

     The Prince of Malcorn listened carefully as Fist of Kjarran and his companions
described the monster on the road to Murska, what it had done up till now and how
they had dealt with it.  When Fist repeated Cadal's statement that the matter was not
settled and could not be settled in simple combat, the prince sighed and nodded.
"That's true," he admitted.  "The dregur can be driven off with steel, but they can't
be finally settled that way.  It takes magic to bind and unbind them, because an
essential part of their nature is magical."
     Stiffly, Aghtamar said, "We heard that it was you who set them loose
originally--"
     "For what I considered good and sufficient reason, yes, I did," Malcorn agreed.
"How many invaders did you encounter on the road here from Korga?"
     "Invaders?"  The Korgan woman shook her head, puzzled.  "None.  I hear they're
pulling out all along the coast, going back to their homelands, I suppose, and about
time!"
     "About time," Malcorn agreed.  "It was the dregur who finally convinced them of
that.  Not all dregur are criminals like the one you fought, probably no more than
might be found in a similar group of humans.  I made an agreement, which the
responsible leaders of the dregur entered into fully and fairly.  They will help us
deal with the few among them who are criminal."
     "They'll...help?" Zilla asked faintly.  "Wonderful.  Just wonderful."
     "They said they'd clean up their own snakes."  The gladiators turned to peer
into the dark corner.  The man sitting there, who had been so silent he hadn't been
noticed, was plainly a Karnhorn.  A Karnhorn of a familiar type--by his clothing,
which was fashionable but not highly so, and very plainly made, a man of the lower
ranks of the nobility, and impoverished, Aghtamar decided.  Probably a minor
bureaucrat.  Which made his presence here, on terms of familiarity with the Prince of
Malcorn, a puzzle.  Not her puzzle to solve, she hoped.
     "I know they did, Tiljanz, and I believe they intend to do so," Malcorn replied.
"But I don't see any harm in providing them with...witnesses to their fulfillment of
the agreement."
     "To make sure they have no second thoughts?" Tiljanz asked.  He sounded a little
amused, but only a little.  "No harm in that," he agreed.  "I shall certainly go
along to see that the terms of the agreement are met."
     "No offense intended," Fist said quickly, "but this will be a job for warriors.
You don't look like--"
     "I am not a warrior," the young Karnhorn answered calmly.  "And I take no
offense at your warning, intended as it is to preserve my life.  But life is not
enough, there must be self-respect, as well."
     "Tiljanz al Burgos is as steady a man as you'll find," Malcorn cut in.  "He
won't run, and he won't get in your way.  We'll take him with us."
     "With...us?" Aghtamar asked faintly.
     "Yes, I'm coming, too," the Prince of Malcorn answered.

     Fist of Kjarran had expected to leave immediately, or at least first thing the
next morning.  But two full days passed before Lord Malcorn and the Karnhorn
bureaucrat were ready to go.  Two days during which he considered going without them.
But there were always several Shews, large, Lord Protector Shews, standing between
him and the door when those thoughts came to him.
     And then when they did finally set out, Fist of Kjarran, Aghtamar, Zilla, Cadal,
Malcorn, and Tiljanz al Burgos, Fist found himself wishing that some of those big,
tough-looking Shews were coming, too.

                           Reflections by the Lord-Marshall

Wow, my first turn out of Home Guard and I get named Lord Marshall.  Cool.  You know,
I'm Drake's first warrior to make LM.  The weird thing is, though, was when I told
him the news, he literally collapsed to the floor laughing.  I couldn't quite make
out what he was saying past all the laughing, but I thought I heard something about
needing to buy a lotto ticket before it runs out.

Anyway, Hindenbird, I almost felt guilty about beating up on someone who was already
on fire and all, but I figured, you did volunteer to step out onto the sands.  This
turn, I'm directing my challenges at Sethra Lavode (since our previous LM seems to
think so highly of this warrior) and Tempest because it's one of Billy S's weaker
plays.  So, here's hoping I'll be here next turn.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Because of the fights being late--I don't know why, really!  Maybe someone else 
was using the arena?  Anyway, because of that, and Drake doing the Semester Report 
besides, they say I have to be short and, you know, fast.  Well, what if I want to be 
tall?  I mean, you can't expect me to hunch over.  As if!
     So, anyway, here's some stuff.

     Forty-five fights, thirteen challenges, one tv challenge and the rest are radio.  
Nobody died.  At least, I don't think anybody died.  One standby.  The longest fight 
was ten minutes.  No excitement, but lots of action.
     Under Duress was Most Avoided by Drake's Bar-B-Q.
     Ali Gator was Most Challenged.
     And I'm going to leave the fights upside down again, challenges first, because 
of having to do this fast, you know.  And short.

THE DEAD                    W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY              TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Bankrupt -- I question the security of your investments. -- Ali Gator

Xerxes -- It's that extra inch I've got on you. -- Dr. Scum

Mymid El Naimis -- Dead?!  Dead?!  How do you expect me to learn anything if you kill
me?  That's just rude. -- Uu Doewanakno (dead 3 times in his career and he's had just
about enough)

TryUrLuck -- I guess my luck was pretty good. -- Edgar Allen Polecat

Saint -- I thank you very much for your assistance. -- Drake

     No problem.  Sorry I spaced on the alliance part though. -- The Saint, sometimes
     absent minded keeper of lists

Blackmyth -- Did ye hear me fans cheerin' wildly for me even as I was carried off the
sands?  I think I've got the makin's of an overall popularity leader in just a few
turns here.  That's a bit more to boast about that those puny murderous thrusts of
yours. -- Lump o' Gore

Lord Lightspeed -- You're training your physical attributes already?  I'm still on
skills.  Still, with a bit more of that you might have been able to get yourself up
off your back.  Better luck, friend. -- Royland

Red Baron -- You've got to stop listening to what your opponent says during a fight.
When I say, "Give up, you can't possibly win," you are NOT supposed to say "Oh all
right then, never mind."  You're supposed to bare your teeth and say something like
"Sez who?" as you charge at me with your blade leveled. -- Kelos

Blue -- You did pretty well there.  Truth is, I can't understand how I beat you.
Hang in there, you'll do fine. -- Mila

Graham -- Thanks to you, I was the only guy on my team who lost his fight last turn.
You can't imagine how galling that is.  On a team that mostly loses, everybody gets
really smug when they've won.  The odd man out has to do the dishes. -- Loping Wolf

Debby Tonte -- Sorry I couldn't afford it.  I lost my fight last turn and that means
no bonus, so I'm broke till after this fight.  If I win, I'll buy a round for you and
me.  If not, you buy. -- Loping Wolf

Panic Attack -- Sir!  You must be calm.  Serenity in the face of trouble is the key.
-- Moonjumper

Tesserack -- How did you manage to fold yourself into such an unusual and confusing
posture of meditation before the fight?  And are you sure this served you well?
Perhaps your muscles were made stiff or cramped by the exercise. -- Redfox
P.S.  And why was the CROWD screaming?  You were the one who got hurt.

Dirt Knap -- (horrible scowl) -- Brangus

Moonracer -- What, are you saying I'm faster than the moon?  Amazing.  I haven't
started training my speed yet.... -- Raven Eyes

Funny Bunny -- Amazing, ten clashes at the beginning?  You are not a funny Bunny at
all, truly remarkable. -- Redfox
P.S.  Madbull, of course, is furious.  So what else is new?

13 November 2003
Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex

Greetings!  I would like to invite everyone to Jhans (DM 36) for the first annual kLk
St. Valentine's Day Massacre (kill contest).  We will start the contest off with the
ceremonial burning of the Andorian flag on turn 450.  (Six turns away.  Roughly mid-
February.)  The contest will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461, 3 separate victors will
be announced.  Team with the most kills, warrior with the most kills, and alliance
with the most kills.  Prizes will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most
kills and to the manager of the warrior with the most kills.  The prizes will

probably be team roll-ups.  The number of roll-ups has yet to be determined.  The
contest is sponsored by Jhans' newest, (but by the time the contest starts) largest
alliance, the kLk (pronounced "klick"). -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36
