                       Reflections by the Champion of the Horn

Well, well, well...it would appear that I have at long last gotten to the top of the 
heap here in Lirin Kiv.  Back to the top, I should say.  This isn't my first trip up 
here, though it will likely be my last.  That's right, loyal fans; Darkmoon Blackfell 
is off to Primus.  All too soon, it seems, in the lifespan of an elf...  Yet not soon 
nough for the lot of you.  My record is not what it should be, as many of you can 
attest at having never beating me.  My losses here can all be attributed to the lack 
of attention we all receive from our manager, Talon included.  How many times have 
you seen one of us training a stat that we can no longer advance in?  Or running 
naked from a long ago ended contest?

That's probably not going to end any time soon, as Armalias is about the busiest elf 
I've ever known and he is the one in charge.  Good thing is, he just couldn't let an 
opportunity to have one of us write a column pass by withou making sure we did it.  
Here it is.  I did it.

Best of luck to you all as you try to keep the gates of Lirin Kiv open and keep 
yourselves from becoming mingled in with any of the other regionals.  We are our own 
people, from our own arenas, with our own unique flavor and way of doing things.  I 
never want to leave...but, alas...all good things must come to an end.

Darkmoon Blackfell,
     Champion of the Horn

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Once again, no challenges and no avoids.  It can't be a case of tourney 
preparation taking all the managers' time, since the tourney is already over.  So 
what's the story on this?
     Still, we did have two other guildhouses join the Sand Dancers in writing 
personals, and my thanks to them, and also to our Champion of the Horn for his 
column.  If this is what we can get, we'll take it.
     Er, just to clear up a little point, Kyrlania, there are no elves native to 
Lirith Kai.  The Census Bureau assures us this is so--true, we have some natives who 
are unusually slim and graceful and just happen to have pointed ears, but they aren't 
elves.  No.  Just as the short, stocky, bearded individuals sometimes found in 
northern and mountainous provinces aren't dwarves.  Just, well, short, stocky, hairy 
humans.  So a self-professed elf is something that a traditional Adantri views with 
suspicion.  Amazing, isn't it, how some Lords Protector just haven't managed to 
broaden their views at all?  I say this not to make you forgive him his rudeness, but 
merely to put you in the picture.  Ah, that would be the picture that Damoreth Stenn 
is not looking at....  "Just so you know," to quote somebody or other.

     Before going on to the regularly scheduled spy report, I want to congratulate 
all those warriors who, graduating from Adantri arenas, have managed to achieve a 
tourney-victor status and challenge.  No Champs this time around, but that's life.  
Or, as the case may be, death.
     In the Contenders, Stile 65-5941 of Split Infinity 2.
     Eligibles Shylock 75-2602 of Dark Toads and Coral Snake 65-5017 of All That 
Slithers.
     In the Adepts Adalius 74-3513 of Gurtarg's Axes.
     In the Dead Champions Dead Pig 65-4783.
     And Dead Initiate Terminotter III 78-2428 of Wild Kingdom.
     A hearty congratulations to you all.  And for those of you who graduated 
elsewhere and then came here, my apologies, but my scribes didn't pull out any 
information to allow me to check on your tourney status.

     So, the non-challenge, non-avoid fights:
     GISELLA (74-2704) (22-14-0,75) of CHEYSULI & LIR fought RIRORNI SOLDIER (107-3) 
(0-0-0,30) of Not the Mimes.  GISELLA slimly won victory over RIRORNI SOLDIER in a 
popular 3 minute gruesome bout.  They tell me that the College of Mimes up in Talahya 
is sending out trainees to do standby fighting in a lot of arenas on the Isle, but 
they have not, Mantor be praised, gotten in HERE yet.
     WAIS (65-6447) (20-29-0,74) of DARK TOADS fought GREGORY GOYLE (74-3497) (23-25-
1,62) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  WAIS was narrowly defeated by GREGORY GOYLE in a crowd 
pleasing 3 minute conflict.  Does this mean that Wais is narrow?  Not a thing to say 
to a lady.  Or is it Gregory who is narrow?  He might not like the imputation.  Or 
just what, exactly, are we suggesting here?
     VINCENT CRABBE (74-3498) (31-18-2,98) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE fought TAMRISSA (38-
4153) (18-10-0,66) of BLENDING ENTHRONED.  VINCENT CRABBE beat TAMRISSA in an 
exciting 1 minute bout.  That'll teach her (meaning Tamrissa) to go putting her faith 
in blending.  What you want is the pure stuff.  Uh, whatever stuff that might be.

     THE QUICKLING (70-1669) (51-123-2,115) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought ESSINA TYL VERN 
(75-2694) (19-51-1,113) of SAND DANCERS.  THE QUICKLING viciously subdued ESSINA TYL 
VERN in an exciting 3 minute brutal fight.  Yep, I had an idea that Essina was going 
to seriously regret agreeing to fight on the Isle.  And the warrior she made the 
promise to isn't even here that I've noticed.  Some Toad from Jade Mountain, and to 
be sure we have SoME of them, but... 
     NIGHTCAP (74-2745) (66-89-0,180) of DARKLINGS fought DARLINA (74-2995) (38-25-
2,137) of SAND DANCERS.  NIGHTCAP handily defeated DARLINA in a crowd pleasing 1 
minute mismatched bout.  Life is tough, isn't it, Darlina?  You go along thinking 
you're getting a handle on things, and then some veteran pops up and creams you.  But 
you look very nice creamed.
     UHLEK (38-4234) (18-9-2,156) of DARK TOADS fought TAIRIKIA (51-4247) (73-78-
0,180) of SAND DANCERS.  UHLEK was vanquished by TAIRIKIA in an action packed 1 
minute mismatched bout.  Looks like Tairikia has her sights set on a winning record 
again.

     JAMMIES (74-2829) (62-66-1,164) of DARKLINGS fought TORYN TYL DAGEDA (74-2777) 
(63-65-4,180) of SAND DANCERS.  JAMMIES was devastated by TORYN TYL DAGEDA in a 1 
minute mismatched bout.  Dast I mention what Jammies was WEARING for that fight?  Ah, 
NOT the footed pajamas he has worn on other occasions, but still... those long 
fluttering sleeves can be a bit of a problem in a vigorous melee.
     DAMORETH STENN (65-6105) (42-41-0,151) of SAND DANCERS fought THOMAS (82-14150) 
(10-11-0,124) of TOADS OF KRONDUR II.  DAMORETH STENN was butchered by THOMAS in a 1 
minute one-sided battle.  Ooooh, everybody's after Damoreth Stenn!  I bet next time, 
Kyrlania butchers him.  At least, if she's got a weapon and armor.
     TOM RIDDLE (74-3501) (31-17-2,171) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE fought BAT (74-2742) (78-
78-1,167) of DARKLINGS.  TOM RIDDLE was demolished by BAT in a 1 minute mismatched 
competition.  Not to be wondered at.  Setting aside all questions of experience, this 
is the season when bats are "In."  A good bat makes the most of that.

     SMOLDER DARKSUN (78-513) (75-64-3,199) of THE DRAGON FIST fought ROBERTO LEATHAM 
(65-6232) (30-31-1,190) of SPLIT INFINITY.  SMOLDER DARKSUN handily defeated ROBERTO 
LEATHAM in a 2 minute brutal one-sided bout.  Do you suppose that the strange weather 
we've had lately--the mages over at the Stronghold Academy are predicting worse, 
including eclipses of the sun--was a factor in this battle?  Not to mention a bit of 
his manager's attention.  That kind of thing seldom hurts.
     KING LOVE (40-3748) (26-28-2,190) of SUNNYLAND fought SHYLOCK (75-2602) (41-37-
1,200) of DARK TOADS.  KING LOVE was vanquished by SHYLOCK in an exciting 1 minute 
one-sided fight.  And NEXT time, I expect to see Shylock using his TV challenge.  
That's what it's FOR.
     DEADBOLT (70-1664) (80-101-2,199) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought DRACO MALFOY (74-
3500) (28-11-1,196) of SLYTHERIN HOUSE.  DEADBOLT slimly won victory over DRACO 
MALFOY in a popular 4 minute gruesome duel.  One of the stewards just gave me a note 
explaining that Draco is the slim one here.  Seems this steward works, or maybe he's 
saying he has a nephew that works--his handwriting is awful, and we know the stewards 
don't work much anyway--in the locker room and has actually, ahem, seen the warriors 
in question without their armor.  I wouldn't know, myself.

     CYLADIA (51-1122) (97-111-0,202) of SKAITHVARN fought ZALMARDARIN (78-312) (49-
89-3,184) of THE DRAGON FIST.  CYLADIA savagely defeated ZALMARDARIN in an action 
packed 2 minute gruesome melee.  Yep, she had the chisel out there again!
     VALLANT (38-4151) (39-18-2,183) of BLENDING ENTHRONED fought KYRLANIA (70-2327) 
(63-99-1,176) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  VALLANT bested KYRLANIA in a crowd pleasing 2 
minute bloody match.  Ah, hard luck, Kyrlania!  But I hope you at least had armor and 
a sword this time?  Being able to hand a little damage back to your opponent 
sometimes makes the pain more bearable.
     NIGHTFALL (74-2421) (97-95-3,229) of DARKLINGS fought ZALGOR PRIGG (82-15204) 
(33-20-0,198) of MUTANT LEAGUE II.  NIGHTFALL was demolished by ZALGOR PRIGG in a 1 
minute mismatched competition.  That is Zalgor Prigg the Warrior, and it should NOT 
be taken as an excuse for Zalgor Prigg the Manager to skip writing personals.  That's 
a hint, Zalgor.

     TALON WARSMITH (99-101) (72-89-8,243) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought VILLAINOUS 
INFORMER (107-23) (0-0-0,181) of Not the Mimes.  TALON WARSMITH viciously subdued 
VILLAINOUS INFORMER in a popular 1 minute contest.  And rightly so, very proper.  
Villainous Informers deserve everything that happens to them.
     TREMERE (9-4915) (40-13-0,230) of DARK TOADS fought CORT NIGHTJEWEL (78-196) 
(55-79-0,188) of THE DRAGON FIST.  TREMERE handily defeated CORT NIGHTJEWEL in an 
action packed 1 minute one-sided match.  "Handily."  That means "no kicking," right?  
But then, how many people, outside an unarmed aimed blow contest, actually do kick in 
the arena?

     And for the title:  DARKMOON BLACKFELL (75-862) (91-70-3,242) of SCARLET KNIGHTS 
fought KHORA THE SMALL (78-519) (117-137-3,221) of SAND DANCERS.  DARKMOON BLACKFELL 
devastated KHORA THE SMALL in a 2 minute mismatched Title fight.  So much for Khora 
giving herself airs.  Good work, Darkmoon.  Write another column, okay?  Even 
something short, just a line or two.  It's the thought that counts.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Smolder Darksun -- I thought you had me when you whacked me in the head like that.  
Good thing it was the flat of your weapon and not the edge.  Still, I was seeing 
double for a few seconds.  But we really caused each other a lot of pain.  Sorry 
about that and I'd be happy to buy you a cup of chamat. -- Nightfall

Larkin -- Well it isn't like you gave me much help either.  I don't remember seeing 
you out there on the sands. -- Nightfall

     Of course not!  Think I'm an idiot?

King Love -- What kind of a name is that?  Especially for someone who goes around 
almost cutting other people's arms off? -- Bat
P.S.  That off-hand... what did you call it, a racquet?  That was annoying.

Vallant -- Good fight.  Thought I'd won it after the first minute but you made a fine 
comeback. -- Nightcap

Zalgor Prigg -- Ouch. -- Jammies

Tairikia -- For your style, your record is very good so I know you are competent.  I 
wonder if it's possible that I'm getting better at what I do.  Strange! -- Cyladia
P.S.  Sorry about the chisel.  You know, since my favorite weapon is the shortsword 
which is about as ineffectual in battle, I thought they might not mind if I brought 
in my REAL favorite weapon.

Damoreth Stenn -- I let most of the little snide comments from your team roll like 
water off a duck's back, but not yours.  "Besides, you're an elf."  Yes, I am, and if 
it weren't for the grace of the Lady Greywand, I would end your existence permanently 
for the tone of your statement.  As it is, the plague that is Kyrlania Benrendal 
shall now rain down upon you and yours...in buckets of red, red blood. -- Kyrlania
P.S.  Never gode a Scarlet Knight...where did you think the Scarlet comes from?

     Whatever it takes to get you talking.  It isn't like we'd MISS Stenn.  Go for
     it. -- L

Kyrlania -- I know where it comes from! -- Darkmoon

Darkmoon -- So do I! -- Zalmardarin

SKs -- Calm down, fools, before you give away our secrets. -- Talon

Toryn tyl Dageda -- That's not all I do quickly.  My mood can change that way, too.
-- The Quickling

Deadbolt -- So, do you often win your fights by being totally boring?  Inquiring 
Minds want to know.  In fact, why are you still fighting at all, since you obviously 
aren't interested? -- Toryn tyl Dageda

Faceless Killer -- By the Fox's Tail, kill if you must, but get a face!  To kill 
without a face is an insult to your victims. -- Khora the Small

Cyladia -- Ah, another of those people who go along fighting in the arena because 
they can't think of anything better to do with their time.  I bet we could find 
something you would enjoy more! -- Tairikia

Kyrlania -- Drat, I hate losing to someone who comes out empty handed.  You could at 
LEAST get a weapon, couldn't you?  It would make things more... proper. -- Damoreth 
Stenn

Ender -- They tell me it's been a while since you fought here, and I wouldn't have 
minded, personally, if it had been longer.  But what brings you out of the woodwork, 
anyway? -- Essina tyl Vern

The Quickling -- And quickly you go down. -- Darlina

22 October 2004
                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
