                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's a shame I only get one chance to say what's on my mind as the top warrior
in Mordant.  I guess that's what happens when you are the last of a large group of
warriors recruited at the same time by your manager.  As you know, I was trained as
lunger.  I really should have been trained as a slasher but my manager wasn't
thinking clearly at the time (this happens more than he would like to admit).  For
what it's worth, here are the numbers behind the man:  11(1)-3-10-17-21-12-11  SS,
Very High/Very High, Lunge tactic, learn defense.  I'm bonused in endurance, -1 RIP &
mode everywhere else.  It's been fun and I'm glad I made it all the way to the Isle
and retirement.
     Doyle Brunson, congratulations are in order for avenging your bloodfeud.  You
certainly are persistent.  Be that as it may, I have some surprising news for you.
Cheese Whiz was given some bad "advice" by the Gladiatorial Commission prior to your
fight.  A protest was filed with the Commission and it was determined that the
"advice" he was given contributed to his poor performance (and subsequent death).  As
such, he was resurrected and his loss was removed from both his and our stable's
records.  He looks forward to seeing you in the very near future.  In the meantime, I
am passing up the opportunity to fight to the death in the Dark Arena to see if I can
successfully bloodfeud you myself.  Good luck to you should my challenge go
through....

Until Chaos rules and the Isle sinks,

Jimmy Wong

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MORDANT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as MANNEQUIN'S BEST is pushed out of top team by SWEORDMASTERS, who came 
from 9th with a 4-1-1 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for STEEL LEGION, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 
11th.  SWEORDMASTERS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-1 into a 8 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  The DESOLATE TEMPLE 
guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, VERMILION fought BELY MEDVED and 
gained 14 points and contributed to JGW PERISHABLE's 2-3-0.  PROPAGANDA has lost to 
CHEESE WHIZ, falling 12 points, while helping make LIVE FROM MOSCOW! a 0-4-0 turn.  
This week's Duelmaster bout was between DOYLE BRUNSON and our Duelmaster JIMMY WONG, 
making a Bloodfeud.  Defending his title for another turn, JIMMY WONG kept POKER 
GREATS' warrior, DOYLE BRUNSON, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Conan's Place?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the SEA DOGS stable was the most avoided 
team this turn.  Come on MORDANT, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding SEA DOGS more 
than any other team we find LIVE FROM MOSCOW!.  MORDANT, are we going to accept, or 
respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was JGW 
PERISHABLE's warrior STANDARD.  More fighters challenged it than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  DECADO, does your manager know you're challenging down 
18 points to fight WOEBEGONE from SWEORDMASTERS?  I thought challenges were for 
warriors, not cowards looking for easy wins.  DECADO defeated WOEBEGONE, is nothing 
sacred?  I don't know about you, but KAZACH challenging down 21 points to SEA DOGS' 
BALLAST, is not really worthy of DESOLATE TEMPLE.  We're not surprised to hear that 
KAZACH subdued BALLAST, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why DESOLATE TEMPLE 
made such a challenge.  N'AZADAR from DESOLATE TEMPLE took a risk this turn by 
bravely challenging up 29 points in a challenge against BATTLE ANGEL.  And now nobody 
knows where BATTLE ANGEL is right now, after giving N'AZADAR 20 points worth of 
recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind me.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard 
to believe.  HONOR AND GLORY was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  
Makes you think, no?  Now it looks like CAPELLA is gone, and forgotten too, now that 
VOID did not revenge AGENTS OF OSIRIS' DECADO for killing CAPELLA.  A brave warrior 
does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     I like this place, MORDANT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MORDANT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Civil War/The Crusades

The next edition of the Civil War series is to be held in Tobir, arena 14, beginning
November 25th with a round where all participating managers must DA all 5 of their
warriors; in addition all warriors must be prefixed with an A an F or a D in the
following manner:  A-Broke Stroker or (A) Broke Stroker.  Names simply beginning with
the letter of your federation will NOT count as properly prefixed!  Existing teams
are welcome but no warrior who survives the DA who had prior Fight Experience (arena
or tourney) will be allowed to score or challenge into the contest teams.  There will
be an equal number of teams set up for each of the three factions (Andorian, Free
Blades, and Delarquan) to create sides as equal as possible.  This along with the DA
round should set up pretty equal footing for all managers.  After the DA there will
be another round where you can either DA again or fight your new, or surviving,
warriors so they will be set up to challenge an opponent beginning on round 1.  So as
a recap DA round, turn 0, then turn 1 it begins with the following rules:

The Civil War to be held in arena 14.
- The contest runs for 10-28 turns (barring ties).
- No tourney participation allowed.  Teams with warriors participating in any
  tournament are disqualified.
- An even number of teams per faction worked out by the Faction Leaders.  No later
  substitutions are allowed.
- If a manager brings in a second team and challenges into the contest he is DQ'd and
  his side will fight one team short!
- Three factions will be participating:  Andorian, Delarquan, Free Blades
- Everyone prefixes their warrior with A-, F-, or D- (No prefix = disqualification of
  the warrior)
- Turn DA:  (The DA Round) November 25, 2006.  Every warrior must DA.  (Warriors not
  DA'd on Turn 0 are disqualified)
- Turn 0:  December 9th, 2006.  There will be no scoring this turn it is meant to
  allow for challenges on turn 1.
- Turn 1+:  Scoring as detailed below
- Each team gets 1 point for defeating a warrior from an opposing team.
- Fights against warriors on your team do not generate points in any situation.
- The team with the most points each turn gets a Battle Point (if there is a tie for
  the most points then no Battle Points are accrued)
- The first team to 10 Battle Points wins the war
- Managers of teams on the winning side each receive a +1 bonus potion to be used on

  a warrior on their contest team.  This must be applied within a month of the
  conclusion of the contest and the team must have been active on the last turn of
  the contest.

Anyone wishing to participate, and feels they can probably stick around for the
duration (don't want to handicap a side, of course unforeseeable events cannot be
planned for), should either diplo me at THE DEATH SQUAD(63) in Tobir (arena 14) or
place a personal ad in the arena.  You may also contact me via the Duel2.com boards!
Let me know which faction you would like to fight for!  This contest is intended to
be open to ALL managers wishing to pit themselves against each other to try and
determine which faction has the best managers! -- Street Legal

14 September 2006
     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.
