                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is a shock, and an offense against the memory of all those gladiators who
have DESERVED the title of Top Gladiator of Kaltos.  Which is not to say I'm without
desert, I just had some very tasty pie, let me tell you!  Er, what I meant was, there
are five warriors on the list ranked higher than I am, and they all chose to sit out,
so I take the title pretty much by default?  Okay, I DID win my fight, but still...I
beat an Adept.  Pooh.  It was grossly unfair.
      I presume once the tourney comes and goes, there will be action here again?  Or
maybe I should say, I certainly HOPE there will be action again here!

                                     Fergus Hill

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of KALTOS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with TUBBA BLUBBA?  He 
actually beat SPORTS GREATS' M.J., and walked away with 12 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at PAPER MARIO while they watched TUBBA BLUBBA clobber M.J..  
He lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  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!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, THE MIDDLE WAY 5!  The bums at PAPER MARIO couldn't face the challenges 
from THE MIDDLE WAY 5!  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.  STAR ROD of PAPER MARIO knows how to pick 'em.  It challenged GLORIA 
IMBRO of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 who is up by 23.  Now was this a wise move?  STAR ROD 
perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it defeated GLORIA IMBRO and ended up with 
58 recognition points.   
     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?  
KALTOS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Gloria Imbro -- Ugh!  What did you do to me? -- Twink (feeling twunk)

Elinde -- At least I managed to manipulate my way through the MW5 barriers. -- Star

Gloria Imbro -- But it is so cute and pretty that I enjoy holding it! -- Star Rod

Overd -- I always liked Jade East aftershave. -- Bombette

The Paper Marios wish you luck in The Mailer. -- Luigi

Bombette -- Boom!  Or in your case (friendly leer), boom boom!  You really didn't
want that undefeated record, did you? -- Fergus Hill

Twink -- Neuter.  Darn.  That takes a lot of the fun out of an encounter.  Golem I
could deal with and have, but neuter...no.  Don't even want to. -- Gloria Imbro

Star Rod -- What YOU are, is depressing.  All that potential, and...neuter golem.
Bummer. -- Elinde Goss
P.S.  Sure, I have teammates, but who wants to hang out with teammates?

Listen, I find the very CONCEPT of armed beggars offensive.  And disturbing.  Bad for

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

     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
     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.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!
