Once again I've been called out of retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting. What's with SUSHIE? She actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY 5's FERGUS HILL, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight. Laughs were big at PAPER MARIO while they watched SUSHIE clobber FERGUS HILL. He lost 6 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands. Har har har! Did TONY TWILO wimp out, or just get lazy? Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore. I can barely restrain my enthusiam for SPORTS GREATS' outstanding member, Duelmaster MICKEY MANTLE. I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters? Tough! Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges... KALTOS thinks HOUSE OF PANCAKES and their 14-3-0 is too much! If at first you don't succeed, give up... The bums at PAPER MARIO couldn't face the challenges from HOUSE OF PANCAKES! No excuse for that! How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, GLORIA IMBRO! Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you. A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing. Some fighters don't accept this. The best do. Here's some advice: study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty. Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors. Any plans here? All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter. Work and play no fighter dull Olaf. Olaffighterwork and no play. Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.

My after-hours dance card is heavily occupied. Keep trying. Don't forget me.... I truly did enjoy both out dances in the arena. -- Bombette Luigi -- I think Short Stack cheated. How else could a little shrimp like that one- up me. Me!? Do you hear me? -- Tubba Blubba Tubba -- Shaddup and get back to the smorgasbord. -- Luigi Jerri Lough -- No fishy stuff from me. I always say, "spare the rod and spoil the fight". (wink) -- Star Rod Elinde -- I guess I didn't treat you any better than Star Rod, did I? Gee! -- Twink Mickey Mantle -- Odd, that. Mickey Cloak? I admit the alliteration sounds better, has a sort of swing to it. And you definitely swung at me. -- Gloria Imbro P.S. It's probably a factor of the confusion when I woke up days later, but I have this mental image of you with a club, on a package of..."Wheaties"? Rudon -- Ah? And what did you do to draw the wrath of a wizard upon you? And what wizard, for that matter. I want to be sure not to repeat your mistake, you see. I've already got all the problems I need! -- Fergus Hill P.S. Obviously, since I'm a gladiator. Twink -- Golems give me hives. I never know what to make of them, although I always WANT to make "spare parts" of them. -- Elinde Goss Bombette -- And a big, striking bomb you are, too. -- Orverd Quill Star Rod -- (scowling) Were you using some kind of magic during that fight? Playing with the passage of time in some weird way, so that I got tired and you didn't. I bet you were! -- Jeri Lough the indignant 11 August 2006 All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights! If war is declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light! We have been quietly awaiting such a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians: DM 31, Attn: Timothias)! Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down "Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of Light 26 August 2006 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 LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS SAM SNEAD was dealt death by MOUNTAIN TROLL in a 1 minute Dark Arena fight.
