                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hmm, the Veteran Mercenary, dear Korvoskol Turo of Ferencia, goes down, and
teaches me THREE skills.  This is an improvement on last time, though still
disappointing for the arena as a whole.  Eight active warriors here?  I'm not
counting the two that died, obviously, since they are NOT active.
     Oh, well, perhaps it will be better this time.  One can hope.


                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for NIANIA.  MVP award for LARSEN E?  THE 
GOLDEN FISH's proud of him after beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR and getting 15 points.  
Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think MARETHA should let SHOCKING 
be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  BLOOD BATH was NIANIA's most avoided team.  Is there 
some award for that?  I don't know what 071409B's been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from BLOOD BATH, that's fer sher.  Like, is MARI COY 
popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of NIANIA!  She's got a 
19-11-0, is that good?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think MARI COY 
feels about being challenged by THE SHOCKER, 34 points above her?  I was sorry to see 
such an unfair "fight" in NIANIA.  THE SHOCKER got 10 points after beating MARI COY, 
34 points below her.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All NIANIA ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Dang, every fight except one was against stand-ins.  But the stand-ins were game and
won two of the fights.  Well done, commission patsies!

Golden Fish -- Here's a personal ad for you from a manager who doesn't even run here.
Even though it may not always seem like it, many of us appreciate having your
manager's personal ads in the various low participation arenas.  It's always bleak to
see absolutely nothing and even though it's hard to roust myself to write ads
frequently, I appreciate that your manager takes the time to do so (even though it
probably feels like you're just talking to yourself sometimes). -- The Sentinel, mgr.
of nobody at all in Niania

It offends me to have to fight an orc, especially an orc who is a self-styled
"master" of kung-fu.  What a joke! -- Spike McGold

Why does the arenamaster keeping stepping in when one of us is just about to abolish
the Convicted Assassin for all time?  I'd think that would be a GOOD result. --

     On the contrary, it would be BAD, young lady.  The arena charter requires that
     we have a convicted assassin on the rolls, and they aren't easy to find. --
     Arenamistress Vora

The Venomous Concubine BIT me, and what the Infirmary charged for the antidote was
OUTRAGEOUS.  I think their prices must be set by the Userous Merchant. -- Mari Coy
P.S.  And my insurance didn't cover it, either.

Blood Master -- That was not the introduction I was hoping for. -- Ghost of Lambray

Orange -- I bet you think you're some kind of hot potato for "vanquishing" me like
that, don't you?  Well, the joke's on you, because *I* am a joke. -- Biff Mugg, late
of Mordant
P.S.  Actually, I'm not a joke in MY kind of fight.  In an alley, at night.  But the
arena is just so PUBLIC that I get all nervous and fight stupid.

Piter Devries -- You will pay for that damage to my armor, fellow.  Count on it. --
Sedmon Var, Merchant of this city
P.S.  One way or another, you WILL pay.

Paul Atreides -- An unfair advantage, that.  I had already fought once, after all!
And it isn't like this dead-alive city has TWO Userous Merchants who are also arena
standbys. -- Sedmon Var
P.S.  Most of my colleagues have more sense.

Mari Coy -- You're a tasty little monkey-woman. -- Seef Haraine, not a party woman

Mellisande -- What is it about assassination that gets people so worked up?  You
humans are practically rabid on the subject, and isn't any worse than, say,
assassinating a cow or a wild duck, is it? -- Ssothiss, Assassin by trade

Spike McGold -- You're an idiot, but this is no surprise to anybody. --  Geroge Krag,
Master of Kung-Fu

Maretha -- I couldn't see any point in giving that one my best effort.  It isn't like
anyone would let ME keep the title if I won. -- Korvoskol Turo, Veteran Mercenary

The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

4 September 2006
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
