    Intro​


    Welcome to issue one of the new look RSTL mag. I hope to make it
    entertaining enough for most people to look forward to reading week
    in week out.The contents of the mag will include the usual weekly
    match up news and the predictions of the up and coming matchs. Ive
    added a couple more parts to the magazine, just to try and make it
    fresh and bring a little something more to establish my mark on
    writing them.These two new features include 'RSTL Profiles' &
    'RSTL Viewer Rankings'. Basicly the RSTL Profiles are kind of an
    elabaration on the interviews and gives you more background
    information on the person thats getting interviewed creating a
    short profile. The RSTL Viewer Ranking is thus, when it comes to
    writing my mags I will look at the amount of times the match threads have
    been viewed & the people involved with the match will receive them
    as points, For example. If blah blah Vs blah blah 2 has 134 views
    they each get 134 points. Now you might be asking yourself whats
    the point of this and the answer is simply, its just a bit of fun
    & who knows maybe it will encourage more activity with voting on each
    of the battles & may result in peoples work been read more.​

    Weekly Review


    http://board.rapmusic.com/rapmusic-...real_killer-6-2-vs-2-lyricalpriest-2-0-a.html

    This weeks championship match saw the current champion Cereal Killer take on Lyricalpreist,
    right from the start this match had me smiling with the 'cereal gets soggy in hell line' hah!
    CK did what CK does and dropped a very nice piece with powerful imagery & a tight story.
    LP came with a somewhat hit & miss verse, meaning some people loved it & some people didnt
    seem overly keen but i think on the whole most people agreed that this was one of lyricals
    tightest verses to date & to be honest its a shame he signed out of the league given the
    recent run he has been on. get yourself signed back in fool. Anyway a nice match up here
    despite Cereal making it look like a landslide at CK 2 LP -3.

    http://board.rapmusic.com/rapmusic-...der-3-kuja-2-1-vs-4-fairydance2000-6-1-a.html

    This weeks contender match saw former champion Fairydance2000 take on the new kid on the block
    Kuja. What was nice to see here was that both writers used the same picture as there topics.
    Both came really nice here, with great storys and great imagery. Some people found Kujas
    verse to be predictable & in the end Fairydances greater polished verse took this match at
    FD 4 Kuja -4

    http://board.rapmusic.com/rapmusic-...-no-good-1-0-vs-6-shadowwarriorfs-19-8-a.html

    Shadowwarrior Vs No Good had the making to be a fantastic match & I feel it would of been
    except i think lack of time on No Good's part let it down. Dont get me wrong tho Warrior
    dropped a very nice verse with very powerful imagery & even tho No Good didnt have enough
    time he still dropped a quirky little piece which was still worth the read. Shadow took this
    match at SW 4 NG -4

    http://board.rapmusic.com/rapmusic-...353-week-29-7-cigma-2-1-vs-8-riot-16-8-a.html

    Riot Vs Cigma also had the making for a great match up but once again was marred by lack of time
    not that i can blame Cigma tho, birthdays only come once a year ;), the little piece you did
    write was defo worth a read tho a nice little teaser of what noi doubt would of been a killer
    verse.Riots verse imo was very well written despite some people not been overly keen on it.
    I for one found it a nice piece with a nice story, according to Tac Cigma wins 2 against -2
    but I for one know that Riot got his votes in so may be a mistake.

    http://board.rapmusic.com/rapmusic-...rt-cloaker-0-2-vs-11-theryecatcher-0-0-a.html

    Mrjdm Vs HeartCloaker Vs Theryecatcher. I came into this match expecting Mrjdm to take the win
    & indeed I was right. Theryecatcher had an ok verse but didnt really have anys sort of impact.
    Heartcloakers verse went down like a lead balloon & to be honest im not surprised, LP tryed something
    like this before and it didnt work. They have both signed out of the league now so has me thinking
    maybe the two are the same. Anyway Mrjdm won with a more complete verse. Mrjdm 1 against -1, -1



    All in all not the best of weeks but not the worse, all this minus scores tho, GET FUCKING VOTING! :D

    Match Of The Week

    Fairydance2000 Vs Kuja

    Romantic get away (Fairydance)

    Along time ago in a small country place
    I stayed in a cottage, how my heart it did race
    All seemed so nice by the soft light of day,
    Nestled in a pine wood. A romantic get away
    Over 100 years old. Antiques all over
    Open fire, your desire. Just you and your lover
    By day we stroll around the grounds so green and so vast
    Roots from the pine trees push up through the grass
    Not a house or a person anywhere to be seen
    Like a snap shot straight from the silver screen
    Slowly the sun starts to drift out of sight
    What was once so beautiful is now preparing for night
    The tree tops have vanished completely from view
    Shadows they cast are distorted as the moon light forces through
    The open fire is crackling with the occasional roar
    Cozy and safe we make love there on the floor
    At this point I would like to point out that I didn’t drink booze
    I didn’t do drugs, seen where that gets you; I won’t walk in those shoes
    So nothing more than the lustful rush and the satisfied calm
    We lay together in the certain trust. That I would know no harm
    We check all around and locked everything tight
    Then went off to bed and settled in for the night
    About 3am I feel a cold hand on my head
    Then holding my arms flat to the bed
    Pressure was place on my chest where I lay
    Pinned to the spot I can’t get away
    The weight increases at a frightening rate
    Unable to scream or retaliate
    Cold breaths all over me steam like mist fill the room
    I was growing cold with a knowing of our impending doom
    A thud on our wall startled my man
    He flew out of that bed and grabbed hold my hand
    Reach for his knife that’s never far away
    Still unable to move I stayed where I lay
    The room just got colder, as I seemed to brake free
    My man wasn’t a genius he had no Dr’s degree
    In a heartbeat he had grabbed the torch and ran out the door
    Leaving me and my shit alone here once more
    The pressure in the room made my ears pop
    Blood ran down my neck. Drop after drop`
    I gather my senses prepare for flight or fight
    I feel really dizzy something’s not right
    I hear the car start I run though the trees
    Tripping over the roots fall to my knees
    Surrounded by shadows, I could hear their voice
    Tell me I was now theirs, that I had no choice
    Engulfed by the blackness that pulled me back to the room
    Every things spinning filled with dread and gloom
    I see my own body drench in my blood
    Door slammed behind me with a tremendous thud
    Startled and dazed, feeling quite a wreck
    Looking down at the knife that stands erect in my neck
    I was not alone trapped on this earthly plain.
    Souls that had passed still linger and remain
    We will not hurt you I hear them say.
    We wanted to warn you to stay away.
    This is not the place it was made out to be,
    This is now your forever, your eternity.


    Weeping Angel (Kuja)

    'I promise to find you my love,
    you are my souls desire
    You give my life meaning
    & warm my heart with fire..
    Residing in my dreams,
    in the place filled with trees
    I need to find you..
    You must help me please'


    I stand at the edge of reason, the breeze all around
    As the trees above me sway gently to a ghostly sound
    My heart skips a beat as all my senses try and retreat
    My mind screaming that theres no shame to admit defeat
    I must remain calm, that letter was definitely my writing
    But the fact I have no recollection is what I find frightening
    Left before right, I enter the forest with all my might
    & after a few minutes of walking, darkness devours my sight
    I stand & stare, my senses alert, my mind sends warning
    Isnt this just madness not to venture until morning..
    Guided by the moonlight my legs take on a mind of there own
    ..For what feels like hours but never once feeling alone
    Then I hear it, a melody of sweetness, there in the distance
    All my anxiety diffusing breaching my walls of resistance
    I listen, taking in my surroundings the moonlight glistens
    & the excitement inside me rises as my breathing quickens
    I start to run, in the sweet melody my mind takes solace
    My whole body unwillingly loses control like a broken promise
    I must locate the musics source, my legs will survive
    As each step closer I get my whole body feels alive
    The trees seem to close in as if to control my pace
    Forcing me to make haste as each branch lasarates my face
    Until at last my body halts reaching the end of my flight
    For in the centre of the darkness, shines a suffering light
    A thousand thoughts trying to force logic, my mind retorts
    All else remains oblivous to my eyes, except the source
    I have arrived, one fragment of me remains trying to sway me
    Urging me to turn around and run, this is fucking crazy
    But my will power fails, im a prisoner to my own curiousity
    Dispite my feelings deep down inside creating animosity
    The melody halts, the light is fading theres no mistake
    As the once white light shimmers, wait, its taking shape
    The last of the light bends & swirls, whats it creating?
    Amougst the silence all alone I hear my heart pulsating
    A sudden flash of light erupts, lasting only mere seconds
    Now out of nowhere there stands a woman who beakons
    A woman of beauty & elegance, a woman of pure devine
    Such beutiful eyes, a woman who could steal the suns shine
    In a trance my body heads towards her, abandening choice
    Longing to hold her up close, longing to hear her voice
    I wrap my arms around her in embrace, I try to kiss her
    She turns her mouth towards my ear & starts to whisper
    'Im sorry my child, you heard my call, ill make this fast
    For I am no ones, but enslaved here to perform my task'
    Everything turns cold, her words invoked my loathing
    For this angel turned out to be a wolf in sheeps clothing
    I fall to my knees, all life draining, every orrafice bleeding
    Such trickery brought me here to remain forever sleeping
    But now my mind becomes clear, now this evil forest can sleep
    Until feeding time arrives again, now im the angel that weeps


    The most complete match of the week and therefore the match of the week :D

    No Shows No Showed this week :D

    RSTL PROFILES
    Cereal Killer

    [​IMG]
    Current Champion 7-2
    Age: 26
    Country: Australia
    Years Been Active: 9
    Number of RSTL Titles: 2
    Nickname/Alias: Jonny Knows Candy / Harvest



    Welcome to the 1st Edition of the RSTL PROFILES, this weeks edition im proud to present Cereal Killer our current champion, way to start this off
    with a bang :)

    The Interview

    So how does it feel to be the current champion?

    It's excellent being champ right now though saying
    that i'm going to keep on my grind and not ease off
    because there is a lot of talent in the league right now..

    With no disrespect to anyone but who do you see as an up
    & coming threat to your crown? (if anyone at all)


    My boy cigma if he gets the time to write it is going to be
    real close.. But this weeks match will be very interesting..

    What inspires you when you sit down & write?

    The news, most of the time to deal with my disgust from the
    events that are regularly going on in society i have to vent..
    That's why most of my verse are dark.. Last weeks verse was to
    prove to myself i hadn't lost my innocent side.. Which i needed to do :)

    How do you feel the RSTL is progressing at the moment
    obviously bearing in mind you were here at the height
    of the leagues success?


    Yeh look the league is a place to get what evers on your chest
    off and it's always been like that.. Text leagues are basicly
    dead in the way of activity because all the vets who where writing
    in the glory days have moved on to audio or have families to look
    after now.. As far as how its run its cool, things get done and tac
    n shadow handle take their roll seriously so props to them..

    If you could choose 3 old heads to return, who would
    you choose & why?


    Straight up Anaphora the most under rated writer to ever
    grace the internet, he was that good i felt bad when i
    would take a win off him.. Ana was so smooth and subtle
    with his metaphors that even with a huge attendance people
    where still looking over his piece and missing the point..
    Next Atheist another smooth writer but he never seemed to
    hang around long.. The thing with atheist he portrays wonderful
    pictures very similar to cigma so if i could see them go head
    to head it would be amazing.. last but not least my boy infinite truth..
    He comes and goes when he gets writers block to flush out thoughts
    but he could beat anyone at anytime and most people know it..
    So i would want him to come back just to slap a few scalps
    like damn did he just write that..

    Its looking like Fairydance will be your next match up,
    Is there anything you would like to say to her or about
    Her?


    OK so people if you dont know fairydance is my mum..
    Lol so if she beats me merciless its because i got my talent
    from her.. So good luck mum and i love you..

    Easy riddle here for you, 'When is a door, not a door'?

    When its ajar - hopefully of kush but either way ill still smoke it..

    Do you find listening to music can help you write better?

    Yeh i listen to classical music somtimes when my head is sooo stressed out..
    Occasionally i'll chuck on an instrumental and use it as an audio latter..

    If someone out there wanted to catch your attension
    whats the best thing you look for in a verse?


    Story straight up.. If you have an original concept with
    a big revelation that i wouldn't have come up with then
    you will always grab my attention..

    & last but not least at the moment you seem to be going
    from strength to strength, is there still loads more to
    come from your future verses?


    Yeh man thanks im on fire right now this week im thinking
    of something different that i just came up with while i was
    driving and listening to the radio so i hope you like.. And
    yeh i will be around for awhile even if i do get knocked from my throne..

    That you for giving me your time for this interview :) any shoutouts?

    yeh i'll shout outs to my crew Joint Custody we are currently working a mixtape
    which should be up in the next month or so.. Pz


    Quotations :D

    Mrjdm998 - "CK's work pretty much speaks for itself.
    Whether it's the clever rhyme schmes which don't take
    away from the verse or the actual story itself which
    is always origional and creative."


    ShadowWarriorfs
    - He is a solid writer, Well diverse
    and most of all creative. He has all the mechanics a
    good writer has but he is consistent about it and that
    is what makes him great

    Lyricalpreist - This guy is a Beast with Text. Last week
    in the RSTL, he slayed me, and i don't take kindly to defeat.
    He has such a consistent structure and quality with his story's
    here in the RSTL before i read his verse's i take a moment to
    admire the portrait the words form, if u read his text you would
    agree.. all his material is pretty cleanly delivered presented
    and accomplished. He has the ability to adapt, and that is what
    i find most unique about him. He definitely deserves to be champ.
    what I would be interested in is, who are his inspiration's, who
    he takes seriously in the league, and what he think's about
    my material as well .. :)
    oh' and what's in his i-pod or cd player @ the moment! haha.

    Fairydance2000 - I have read heaps of his work and find that
    he has the ability to take what starts out to be a run of the
    mill story and then put a amazing twist to it and makes it his.
    His stories are well researched and accurate.
    He uses thick rhymes and intense wording. He is a powerful
    writer with a wonderful use of the English language. I enjoy
    reading most of his work, though some of it is a little beyond
    my grasp at times. But always very creative! A gifted writer,
    with a talent that seems to grow and grow.

    For the Record I thought Rye Catcher had the top verse out of their threeway. I was in the midst of dropping my tardy ass vote when thread closed.

    His approach and format was fresh and new also the narration. I dug it he killed his topic.

    How many more times is CK going to be interviewed before an interview is done on a less popular person who has never been interviewed ? This is a rhetorical question.

    Good man, but I would offer critiques somewhere in the mag. It's all praise and that's not good. Honesty is respect.


    -My thoughts.

    I'll be making a return once a few things are in order...then I'll be dropping stuff like the first few drops I made here a few months ago. Cant wait.

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I honestly thought you took the mag and made it special and unique to your personality. I'm not sure if you are comfortable offering any negative things about a writers ability so that's OK if you don't. Critiques are difficult to do without coming across as a douche bag.


    But yeah, no offence to my boy CK. I like the dude, I like all his music and I think he is correct in the C. spot too. Good job CK>
