"I was the last through and the gate closed behind me, but I was more than a little surprised to find myself alone. A quick look around and I realized I was in an extensive cave complex. I felt the weight of thousands of tons of rock over my head and worried for the safety of my companions." He walked to the window, gazing across the village of Andorak. His gaze was inevitably drawn to the white walls of the arena, standing atop a high ridge overlooking the beach and the Lake of Mists. His gaze turned upward to see one of the mighty rocs that were housed in a great aerie upon those same cliffs that held the arena. He turned back, smiling wistfully at Princess Samarra as he continued. "I honestly feared at that moment, with all the time I'd been away, with all the adversity my companions and I had faced, that I would never see the white walls and White Tower of Andorak again. I wasn't afraid of dying, never that; but I feared never seeing my home again. Never seeing the ones I love." Sammy blushed under his intense gaze so he turned his gaze back to the others in the room, eyes moving from one face to another as he paced the floor, his memories as clear as if he were still there.... Shatterstar made his way down the winding corridor, passing several side passages but ignoring them in favor of the wider passage he had entered through the gate. The passage walls were covered in glowing moss that allowed him to see, and the side passages he'd seen so far were completely black. He had no desire to walk in total blackness, so he kept to the main passage. He walked for what seemed like hours, thousands of tons of rock weighing down on his head, his pace quickening to the point that he was in danger of losing control and breaking into a run. He finally realized what he was doing and stopped walking altogether, breathing deeply and slowing his heartbeat. He resumed his march at a measured pace, falling into himself and reaching out with his senses to feel the air around him, hear the distant sounds echoing softly down the corridors, smell the brine mixing with the heady musk that permeated the air. Brine? Phantazia finished the last of the gargoyles in the large room and moved over to inspect the wounds on Sayn Vann's torso. She nodded to him when she saw the cuts were superficial, then moved to the door, motioning Camisole to take a look at Sayn Vann's chest. The door was heavy, oak, and had iron bands across the top, middle, and bottom of the door. There was a latch set in the door, with a skeleton key in the lock. She'd seen one of the gargoyles at the door when she'd entered the room, but couldn't tell if it was coming in and locking the door behind it, or fleeing and trying to get the door open to get out. She tried to door and found it secure, then turned the key in the lock. She felt the tumblers turning in the heavy door and pushed it open after extracting the key. There were a number of cells off the next corridor, a some of which had moans coming from them. "Cells," she said, turning back to her companions. They weren't looking at her, though, a noise from the corridor outside the room had captured their attention. Phantazia closed the cell block door and moved to join her two friends as the door from the corridor opened wide. Shatterstar found the first signs of battle several minutes after he'd heard the first sounds. He'd crept silently along the passage for many minutes since he first heard the shouts and inhuman screams, then moved along in the silence that followed. He came upon the remains of many gargoyles, their wounds made by fine weapons and skilled wielders. He knew that at least one of his friends had been here. Once again, he quickened his pace in an effort to catch up with them. This time, he remained aware of his surroundings and what he was doing. The sense of dread had been suffering was lifted at the thought he might soon be reunited with one of his companions. Up ahead came once again the sounds of battle. He drew his sword, willing it to the length of a greatsword, his preferred weapon, and charged ahead, determined not to miss a chance to link up with at least one of his friends. As he rounded a bend in the tunnel, he saw the backs of half a dozen gargoyles between him and Jhadzia. She was hard pressed by the creatures, but had managed to down two of them already. She was bleeding from a leg wound, and tripped just as he rounded the turn, or seemed to. As he cried out to Errodan, stealing the attention of the six gargoyles, Jhadzia shifted her momentum and slashed across with her sword, decapitating one creature and slamming her blade into the side of the head of another. Shatterstar's sword flashed to life, flames running up and down the blade, his cries to his father answered. Dragon's Talon smashed through the feeble defenses offered by the gargoyles, arms severed and chests cleaved as the elf saw his friend in danger of being overwhelmed. Three opponents fell to his blade before he noticed Jhadzia smiling at him, the other three gargoyles lying dead at her feet. ************************************************************************************* Well, our champions' tale continues to be recounted by General Dayspring and his friends, and another cycle of fights has occurred, so let us get on with the results!!! SIR RICHARD (11-4051) (42-16-0,238) of TUFT TUGGERS challenged RED CEDAR (44- 2451) (38-34-0,245) of SHERWOOD FOREST. SIR RICHARD vanquished RED CEDAR in a 3 minute uneven Challenge battle. Up 7. Sir Richard has an impressive record for a reason. Red Cedar found that out over those three long minutes. Congrats to the Knight from Aruak City. MUCOUS (71-2277) (66-52-2,220) of THE CODA challenged KILIM ALTARAXE (53-6251) (49-31-0,257) of TORSCHIAN TUFTS. MUCOUS savagely defeated KILIM ALTARAXE in a action packed 4 minute Challenge fight. Up 37!!! Now that's a right proper Andorian challenge! Way up there and a win, Mucous! Fantastic job! You drink for free the week. POSITIVE (26-3633) (105-80-0,210) of WARCKERS challenged JOE SATRIANI (11-4422) (27-33-2,221) of THE HEADCUTTERS II. POSITIVE bested JOE SATRIANI in a popular 4 minute brutal Challenge fight. Up 11. Positive was positively brilliant in this challenge, pulling the win despite being the big underdog. DAIN BRAMAGE (14-3935) (30-19-2,182) of THE DEATH SQUAD challenged AMILIE GREYSTONE (57-4002) (39-28-0,206) of MORDYKR KEEP. DAIN BRAMAGE was viciously subdued by AMILIE GREYSTONE in a 4 minute Challenge brawl. Up 24! Another over 20 point UC. Dain Bramage made my day with this one, too, showing just how brave the Death Squad can be. Kudos to Amilie on the win, though. Heh-heh. MARS (52-2609) (92-67-0,203) of INCARNATIONS challenged VISION (26-1573) (57-32- 2,207) of HEADBANGERS. MARS viciously subdued VISION in a crowd pleasing 5 minute bloody Challenge match. Up 4. Not a big UC, but I'll take all the UCs I can get. Mars gets the win against and opponent with substantially fewer fights, but hey, it's a UC, right? INTENDRID O'REILLY (11-2969) (67-53-0,193) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS challenged HEATHER (48-3062) (93-173-7,194) of STARS. INTENDRID O'REILLY savagely defeated HEATHER in a 3 minute Challenge melee. Up 1. Poor Heather. Everyone is always picking on her. Intendrid gets through this time, and manages to beat the old bag. Way to go. Not. STELLA BLUE (53-6167) (35-22-1,191) of PUERCO'S PINATA challenged GIMETHATSHIELD (26-1306) (56-46-1,201) of HEADBANGERS. STELLA BLUE viciously subdued GIMETHATSHIELD in a popular 4 minute Challenge duel. Up 10. Gime kept reaching for the shield that Stella threw on the ground and never had a chance after that. She'd greased the thing before the match and it kept slipping out of his hand. The Commission is looking into the tactic and has banned it pending further investigation. HOMELESS PRINCE (22-6012) (33-23-1,172) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged WARPATH (66-2926) (60-109-4,182) of X-FORCE. HOMELESS PRINCE vanquished WARPATH in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight. Up 10. Homeless had promised Warpath he'd come back and beat him one day, and one day was today! Congrats to Homeless on the big achievement (beating his nemesis). Drinks are on Warpath...lol! LUCIFER (52-3031) (18-17-0,158) of INCARNATIONS challenged SMITH (14-1282) (53- 103-4,159) of MIKES. LUCIFER was savagely defeated by SMITH in a popular 4 minute gory Challenge melee. Up 1. Smith was too much for Lucifer and would not be beaten. This was one of the bloodiest fights of the cycle and a real fan favorite. PYROTECHNICIAN (52-2847) (24-22-1,141) of THE FURIOUS FIVE challenged ERICKA BEARICKA (63-2461) (22-17-0,149) of MONSTER CHILD. PYROTECHNICIAN demolished ERICKA BEARICKA in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge match. Up 8. All those flash bombs going off during the introductions left too much smoke on the floor of the arena, and this one was over before the smoke cleared. Pyro took Ericka down with little effort to earn the win. And for the King's Sentinel, we have the current title holder challenging his opponent: PEPSI (68-8510) (63-30-0,262) of OVERWORLD challenged TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD (11-4304) (53-53-0,226) of SCARLET KNIGHTS. Down 36. I won't chastise the top warrior for challenging down, since that's the only way he CAN challenge, and everyone deserved the right to control their own destiny. PEPSI devastated TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge Title fight. And control it he did, making short work of the lunger from Aruak City. Poor Talisman can't seem to get his record above .500, but that's nobody's fault but his manager's. Pepsi, congratulations on another title win! Let's not forget to do a column (like your predecessor...).

THE DEAD W L K TEAM NAME SLAIN BY TURN PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE All -- Ok, what was that? I take some time off to get some sun, and the place goes dead? Where's the support and love for Andorak, people? A few posts would be nice. Stir up a topic, role-play a little, or project your real life into some pseudo-role- playing. Like, hey Managerr...what kind of manager name is Managerr anyway?! ;) Mine is short for Adeolar, and my full name, Adeolar "Blackwood" Marianka. Half-elf, female, fiery orange hair, like to wear white, gold, and fall colors. Skilled as a priestess of the sun, and as a wizard. I'm a goody-to-shoes, because the real person behind me defines me as a classic role-model with few faults, and high moral and ethical standards. -- Adie Adie -- Thanks for trying to stir things up. -- Khalli Sentinel -- A Sentinel is somebody who guards something, or is protective in some fashion? How did you get that name, and is there something specific you cherish and protect? -- Adie Gladiators and little pieces of paper? -- Khalli Detective Kellumbo -- I know your name's background from Aruak, but please, fill in the others here. -- Adie SOV -- Sablon-o-Vlad, isn't it? Sounds like a vampire to me. What's your story? -- Adie Generalissimo Puerco -- Literally, in spanish, General Pig? You know, I don't recall exactly how you got that name! Did Anne help you with that one? -- Adie JRK -- I know who you are, who the name is based off of, but what does J.R.K. stand for? Or is it not even an acronym? -- Adie LHI -- Ok, I should remember this one.... Got a story for us? -- Adie Lord High Inquisitor, or some such nonsense as that. -- Khalli Papaiz -- I'm lost for thoughts. You definitely need to help me out on your name's meaning! -- Adie Poison Ivy -- I think I've got a pretty good grasp of your manager name. It kind of comes naturally, I don't know why. Must be something in the 'real world' that is similar, like a Batman villain, whoever that is. -- Adie P.S. I know you love everything with a poison theme, why is that? Armalias Skyhawk -- You used to write a lot. But what's behind the real you. Who is Armalias, where does he come from. The name has history, I can feel it. -- Adie Street Legal -- I know you love musicians, but what about your name? Tied to music, or is it off the top of you head? Details, details! -- Adie And... I don't know who manages the other couple teams here. -- Adie Oh, a nice little 4-0 and a 3-0. You see Sentinel, I know what I'm doing! :P~ -- Adie P.S. I just jinxed myself. Amilie Greystoke -- Life on the Isle is the pits. I meat a good-looking woman, and she beats me up. This is not what I thought it would be like, somehow. -- Schendirk Iriador -- I'll always take a chance to beat up a Ratani. -- Pussycat Connor Macleod -- Don't quit your day job. -- Skelos Microburst -- You pushy little guys give me a pain sometimes. -- Daisy January Lukarian Lamorak -- Oh. It's you. -- Minor Miner P.S. Thanks for the skills. You never know, I might use 'em. Sablon-O-Vlad -- What thoughts? I had thoughts? This is news to me. -- Leeta All -- How'd we do in the tournament? I can't believe I missed another one.... -- Armalias Skyhawk 28 March 2005 Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order to continue playing? Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with case law or legal advice? The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from us once (though I recently had that decision overturned). I believe it's only a matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need be. I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated! I can be contacted at: Danny Warren #28341 P.O. Box 250 Draper, UT 84070 or: Heathen, mgr.

You may enter the competition up until Turn 494. Prizes will be announced after the competition begins. The point of the contest is to prove you have the scummiest scum, and necessarily for a silly prize. Good luck and Happy Scumming! -- Manager 6 April 2005 SLAUGHTER'S CHALLENGE I would like to make a formal announcement to all the managers of Alastari that the inaugural/memorial challenge put forth by Abarsis, The Slaughter Priest (Richard Hammes) has been approved by the commission. The contest will be held in TROCAR, arena 54, beginning on the turn that starts around June 2nd. Keep in mind that this is a slow arena. Before I go on, I would like to personally thank the commission for procuring an outstanding top prize for this contest. This announcement follows my last and entry into the contest will be a minimum $5 donation, which I will pool and give to a charity in the San Diego area in Richard Hammes' name and memory. My address is at the end. Once the donation is made, I intend to notify RSI of the charity and amount we donated as a matter of pride for them and us in this game! I will notify everyone in an all arena ad as well. The contest is pretty simple. Any team may enter, there are no restrictions on fight experience! There are no challenges, avoids, bloodfeuds, or tourneys allowed and only one single use of the Dark Arena is allowed after the contest begins. To help eliminate any interference, I am going to allow avoids of non-contest teams in case they are there to manipulate and affect the winner of the contest. Scoring is as follows: 1 point for winning 1 point for killing (giving 2 in total, 1 for the win and 1 for the kill) 1 point for at least one of your warriors writing a personal (regardless of number of personals beyond one you still only get one point). Make sure it is written from one of your team's warriors and not simply the manager entity or you will not get the point. -1 point for losing -1 point for being killed (giving -2 in total, -1 for losing and -1 for being killed) The contest will last for 12 turns, again beginning roughly June 2nd. May I point out that if you use your Dark Arena fight you will get either 2 points, for winning, or -2, for losing, and ALL fights count in the scoring. It matters not if you fight a non-contest warrior or a stand-in; they still count as much as fighting a contest warrior. This will be a test of basic strategy with a touch of luck added in as well. If anyone should break the no tourney rule they will lose 5 points for each warrior entered and those warriors, and any subsequent warriors who replace them in death, cannot score points! Break the no DA, challenge, or avoid rules (except avoids of non-contest teams) and you will be DQ'd as soon as the transgression is discovered. To keep the contest playing field as level as possible, we will have no messing with these rules. Of course you may DA the one time, just as a clarification, but the second time gets you DQ'd. This also counts if it is found you bring a second team in for the purpose of making challenges. You can bring a second team, just don't think they can challenge to give you an advantage. This means DQ to your contest team. A second team may also enter the contest with its own donation of $5 and adherence to the rules. Well, enough of that, I'm sure you'd like to see the prizes so here they are: 1st place - +1 bonus to one warrior on the team, 1 resurrection potion, and 1 favorite knowledge 2nd place - +1 bonus for one warrior, 1 favorites knowledge 3rd place- +1 bonus for one warrior Iron Manager - Run 54 of the possible 60 fights and get a +1 bonus potion The resurrection potion may be used on any FE warrior, however the favorites and +1 bonus potions must be used on a warrior with at least 5 FE. These prizes also must be used within 2 turns of the ending of the contest. Even those rookie level teams can figure out a way to use that resurrection potion if you think night fight ;), after the contest of course, so don't think this is only good for experienced teams! Check your rosters and unused RU's and see if you can't find a reason to come and test your mettle! Again, entry fee is a minimum $5 donation, money order preferred method but if that doesn't work for you we can figure alternate means. If a hopeful entrant happens to be incarcerated and the only real means of making the donation is an account transfer, please make sure you let me know where the transfer came from and which team it is for. I prefer that this only be used as donation method by incarcerated players unless otherwise discussed with me. Please drop me an email, or diplo my team in Tobir(14), letting me know you are sending a donation for entry and the amount so I can be on the lookout for it in the mail. Thanks to all who have sent their sympathies regarding our game's loss of a kind and admirable soul and my best wishes to all!
