The next ADM Regional Tournament will be held the Week of September 20th, 2009.

Q: What is the ADM Regional Tournament?
A: The ADM Regional Tournament is a competition where the best and brightest warriors from the ADM regionals compete to for bragging rights and to see which one is the best!

Q: How does it work?
A: During the week of September 19th, each Regional Team will be temporarly moved Lirin Kiv will they will battle it out in a single elimination tournament with the last warrior standing winning for his region. (Learns, Skills, and FE gained during the contest will NOT count)

Q: How are teams determined?
A: There are 11 automatic berths given out to each team. The Duelmaster and each of the 10 Stylemasters at the end of the following turns will be awarded automatic entry:

Andorak: Turn 513 (due 9/5)
Free Blades: Turn 514 (due 8/26)
Darkholm: Turn 513 (due 8/28 )
Home Guard: Turn 514 (due 9/1)
Crysalis: Turn 212 (due 9/7)

To qualify for a Stylemaster position, you must have been active in the arena in 3 of the prior 4 turns including the last one. (2 of the last 3 for Crysalis)
(Thus, you'll want to activate any inactive warriors who you want to try and qualify by Mid-July sometime, but immediately for Crysalis.)

In addition, each region will be allowed to select 2 wildcard entrants. Wildcard entrants are generally selected based on regional votes, but the regional team captain may decide at his discretion. There will be a turn break in most of the regionals after the slots have been decided but before the regional tourney begins in order to vote, if necessary.

Each manager may only play for 1 region and qualify no more than 2 warriors on a regional team. It's quite possible that based on activity, that certain regions may not be able to field a full team.

Also, because they are hosting the competition, Lirin Kiv has been given a select amount of wildcard berths. Managers and warriors who are still loyal to Lirin Kiv may email/diplo the Lirin Kiv regional coordinator to inquire how to get onto the team.
(Lirith Kai citizenship/immigration required)

Q: What's a regional coordinator?
A: The Regional Coordinator is the unofficial "team captain" so to speak. They are the ones who are in charge of putting together teams based on the rules, and trying to make sure everyone is included and disputes are handled. (Say, someone qualifies more than 2 warriors, the regional coordinator will get with that manager and find out which ones are in or out and notify replacements, etc.)

The regional coordinators are: Manager (Andorak), The Muffin Man (Darkholm), The Dark One (Free Blades), Crip (Crysalis), Li Dan (Lirith Kai), One Arm Bandit (Home Guard). If you need to contact them, you can write a personal ad in the ADM arena, or send a diplo to them at:

Manager: Superior Forces in DM 105
The Dark One: Angels of Pain in DM 103
The Muffin Man: Wasteland in DM 104
One Arm Bandit: Sea Dogs in DM 101
Crip: Royal Flush in DM 106
Li Dan: Sand Dancers in DM 75

Q : What does happen if someone qualifies more than 2 warriors?
A: That manager will be able to decide which two to send and the next highest qualifying warrior will be able to take place of the warrior that doesnít get sent if itís an automatic spot.

Q: What if my warriors are not an ADM regional? (Or in the wrong one?)
A: If your warriors are in 100 (or in the wrong region), for a limited time only you can put in a request to customer service to move to the proper regional. Mention that your warrior wants to try and compete in the regional tourney. (Your warrior must have been qualified for that region as of the last split)

Q: Is there a prize?
A: Bragging rights!

This sounds fun and will make ADM much more interesting for the next 3 months! Thanks for getting this going again, wasn't around during the last one.

WARRIOR SPOTLIGHT

Andorak:
----------
Minute 11021: Manager sipped his mai-tai atop his lounge chair in one of the
managers; suites in the arena. It was another perfect turn in Andorak. The sun was
shining, the competition sparse, and another glorious scum-fest was taking place.
"See the way that warrior has his wrist turned the wrong way?" Manager talked
aloud to no one in particular, "That's costing him extra energy and he's going to
tire in around minute 22,000. Tsk."
Suddenly the door barged open. In walked Armalias Skyhawk, ready for battle and
donning the emblem of the Scarlet Knights. "Come," he said, his voice taking an
unusually serious tone, "We must go."

Free Blades:
------------
The Dark One and Aragorn watched the fights from one of the overhanging walkways in
the arena. Dozens of black birds circled overhead, carrying pieces of parchment in
their beaks.
"It looks like those birds are delivering messages," said Aragorn.
"Ravens. Some say they are messengers of death," noted the Dark One.
Two of the black birds broke from formation and headed towards the two managers.
They dropped their parchments at the feet of the two managers.
"Papyrus," mused the Dark One, "also a symbol of death."
"Really?" asked Aragorn somewhat hesitant to open his parchment, "I wonder
what's going on."
"No. Just kidding," the Dark One teased as he opened his note. "It says we're
supposed to meet at the managers' convention hall near the center of the Isle of the
Eye."

"Curious," mused Aragorn.

Darkholm:
---------
"Hey are there any more of TMM's muffins?" asked a famished Desiree as she jotted
down notes for the spy report from the manager's lounge.
"No time for muffins, sorry!" replied TUM has he hurriedly packed his bag.
"What's going on? They're not re-running the fights, are they?" asked the spy
reporter.
"It looks like all ADM managers are being summoned to the Isle of the Eye," said
TUM. "This must be something big."

Home Guard:
------------
"Whoa, all of the managers of ADM were invited and they asked us Home Guard folks to
attend?" asked the Mun.
"I hear the last time this happened, it was because they were looking for
volunteers to go into the gate and help in the invasion of Gateway. Most of the Home
Guard warriors were killed," noted One Armed Bandit.
"Well, if there is danger, then it's up to the managers and warriors of the
Guard to answer," pointed out the Mun.
"Yeah, they might need cannon fodder in the front lines again...."

Managers' Convention Center, the Isle of the Eye (The next day):
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The managers of the various Advanced Duelmasters arenas quickly descended upon the
Isle's convention center, which hadn't been used for a managerial gathering in many
years. Conversation quickly turned to the reason upon which they had been rapidly
summoned.
"Do you think it's another Rirorni invasion?" asked Tripwire.
"Doubtful," said Le Pentarque, "it's been quiet on that front for years."
"Maybe the Gateway monsters are back!" said Slugbait.
"The magical seals we put in place don't appear to be broken," said the Dark
One. "Although it could be a totally different dimension invading us this time."
"As long as the tournament isn't cancelled, I can live with it," said Guardian.
"Wait. Don't you guys notice something weird about this place?" pointed out
Jekyll. "This room has been decorated. Festively."
The managers of the isle began to look around. The room did seem to be brightly
decorated, although not extravagantly so. Colorful draperies had been hung on the
walls and streamers and balloons were all over the room as well.
"Oh no," groaned Crip, "don't tell me that Soultaker has conned us all into
attending another one of his surprise birthday parties for himself again."
"Gah," moaned Mannequin, "that's two years in a row he's got us now!"
All of the managers sighed and started to head out of the convention center,
when suddenly a commission scribe appeared on stage.
"Stop!" said the scribe, "this isn't another Soultaker surprise party!"
"It's not?" asked Papa Bear. "Then what's with all the decorations?"
"This actually is a party, but not for the reason you think," said the scribe.
With a wave of his arm, a banner suddenly dropped down from behind the stage to the
gasp of many of the managers in attendance. It read: "CELEBRATING THE RETURN OF THE
ADM REGIONAL TOURNAMENT!"
"Wow, it's been so long since the last one," said Crip.
"Indeed," said the scribe. "The Lady of the Isle of the Eye has noted that in
this time of peace, all of you managers have grown soft. You sit around talking shop
in the regional ADM arenas while prepping for the next tournament. So if it's a
tournament you want, it's a tournament you shall have--but one you will have to fight
you way in. And if you are able to fight your way through your comrades and earn
your spot on the team, you will have to duel it out with all of the other regionals'
best too. We will be sending a rules pamphlet to each of your guild houses."
"Can I mention that I'm the defending champion of the last ADM Regional
tournament?" said Mannequin.
"Don't even start," replied Manager. "It doesn't count if it took place before
the first TOGS competition. Besides, you can't win. Andorak is going to win."
"Everyone knows the best and most deep region is Darkholm," said The Muffin Man.
"We have legions of managers who we can call on at any moment that can win this
thing."
"Not me," said Guardian, "I play for Free Blades."
"Don't forget the Slow arena managers," said Fandil of the Consortium Elders.
"The only reason Crysalis has never won before was because we weren't allowed to
compete. This time we are unified and we will put together a team."
"If you were any good, you'd run in a fast arena," quipped Manager
"If any of you were any good, you'd run in Darkholm," retorted the Muffin Man.
The room erupted vociferously in argument as the managers of ADM began to argue
in favor of their home regions.
Suddenly, One Armed Bandit streaked naked across the room. "Home Guard
Rulez!!!" he yelled as a couple of security guards quickly teleported in and started
chasing him.
From the top of her tower, Sheila Greywand watched the managers' argue amongst
themselves and smirked.

I'm hoping it goes well, and this becomes a yearly thing. Reason being, so managers can prep and have time to prepare for next year. A manager can only participate (or compete to participate) if you happen to have high Eligibles at this very moment. Personally, I'm thinking next year I should have more than I do right now...

I would have liked to participate, but no one from the Free Blades contingent bothered to contact me. Seems like it'll be a BOB-only Free Blades group. Funny that, since I was a founding member.

I don't think anyone would be hearing anything until closer to the deadline. I can't speak for the Dark One, but that's my assumption.

Sorry I was incactive last time this was done, but the format of the competition hasn't been explained yet.

Is it just single elimination random matchup or a stylemaster competition first then the stylemaster winners advance into a finals?

The reason I am asking is because I have 4 stylemasters in Home Guard and the type of competition would greatly influence which 2 I choose.

I think it is random matchups against warriors from other regions, single elimination. There is no stylemaster component that I'm aware of.

So, do we send in strat sheets or will the strats be taken from the last turn's strats? If so, is there a due date?

It will be taken from your default strat whenever it's pulled. You have to the 19th to change your default strat. I am going to ask Lee to make a copy and "freeze" the warriors on the 19th (or this weekend), so you have until the end of the week to get any changes to your default strat in.

If the date changes, I'll post it here.
