                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Duelmaster?  How can I be Duelmaster?!  I don't even have enough points to be in the
challenger champs yet and "they" already have me racking up political points for
graduation?!  Epee!  Why didn't you show off a bit of that Mystique and beat up on
ol' silent, our former title holder?  At least you would have been a logical choice
for this post.  But here I am, I shall endeavor to do my best.  Based on recent
examples, there isn't a very high standard to meet.
     I must admit Call to Thunder makes for a lousy Duelmaster.  This position isn't
all about the glory--and there is plenty of that!--it also has its responsibilities.
Such as writing a column!  It isn't hard.  All you have to do is put pen to paper and
ramble on a bit.  Task complete, you can then proceed to the smash.  But somehow Lord
Protector Hida Yakamo seems to have skipped out on the responsibility side of the
post.  Or perhaps he is simply illiterate?
     Patty, it was a good fight.  For me anyway.  And discussing the duel afterwards
on the beach sands was nice.  Enjoyable.  You can call me "your highness" anytime you
like... but on to more public matters.  A challenge.  There is only one option.  And
that matchup didn't go particularly well last time.  And that was before he added
more experience in the tournament.  (A guess, but I think a good one.)  I really
don't think I want to face ol' Molly.  So instead I won't challenge and will see if
the fates bring me someone else.

Hieronymus Zigg, Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to BEACH BABES, as they are pushed from the coveted top 
team spot by the SENTINELS stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for KRONOS GRIMHOLT, who 
flew up 25 points in the rankings after mashing LITTLE VENUS like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was LITTLE VENUS, who 
dropped 16 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with KRONOS GRIMHOLT. 
Our battling duelmaster HIERONYMUS ZIGG has managed to hold the title, fending off 
PALMETTA PATTY's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, BEACH BABES.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the BONSUR arena.  Did you 
hear that AMEN! was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene 
of AMEN!'s warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
SENTINELS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in BONSUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown

Call to Thunder -- Now that Hida Yakamo is gone I suspect you'll be wandering off
again.  You're welcome back anytime--it is great to have others here to compete with,
but we will be happy to get our top team position back.  And that last fight hurt. --

Saltilla -- You can try to slow me down with chickens and smash (And feel free to try
again!), but you can still feel the burn!  I knew the rematch would go a bit better.
A lot better. -- Blueburn

Rose -- Ah m'lady!  Somehow "Babe" doesn't seem to do justice to your refinement!
Although it does catch the twinkle in your eye quite nicely!  It is always a pleasure
to meet you on the sands. -- Baldy

Chaotic Death -- Chin up.  It'll turn around for you eventually.  For now you make a
nice, non-stand-in, punching bag.  But you do it so well! -- Kronos

Hieronymus Zigg -- Wow, are you going places, or what?  So how about going over to
the cabana and checking out the smash? -- Palmetta Patty
P.S.  We could talk about... encounters with each other.

Baldassare -- Well, of COURSE I know I made a career error!  I'm a tanner (not a
tanist, that's entirely something else) and an ornament to any beach I can get to,
not a cold-blooded killer.  Come out to the cabana and we can discuss this.  We've
got smash, of course, and, ah, oatmeal and raisin muffins?  I don't know what
Saltilla was thinking when she made 'em, although they do smell rather scrumptious.
-- Rose o' the Reef

Rose -- Oatmeal muffins with raisins are health food.  Whole grain and, you know,
fruit.  Good for you. -- Saltilla

Blueburn -- You come have some muffins too. -- Saltilla
P.S.  And smash, of course.

What's the point of capturing a Pirate if they won't let me DO anything with him?
That old spoilsport arenamaster just stepped right IN when things were going my way.
-- Little Venus

Hmm.  The Persistent Beggar lost nicely, I will say that for him, but he was
amazingly annoying while he did it. -- Deanna Delite

Lord Protector Hida Yamako -- That back room at the arena with stuff in it?  You
don't want anything there.  I looked.  Rats' nests.  Spiders.  Probably worse things.
However, Korg Shiss, our Black Orc, is prepared to offer you "a complete set of
Commemorative Beer Steins."  What they commemorate, or even how many they number, I
don't know, but if this interests you, well, take it up with him. -- Alainensiel,
Highest Elf of Bonsur

Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!

Players of Duel 2:

RSI wants to try, in a few arenas, a system that rewards role-play and general arena
involvement.  Our thoughts at this time are as follows, and feedback is earnestly

1.  What to reward.
a.  Spotlights--they don't have to be involved and lengthy storylines, and in fact,
my own inclination is to say: anything game related and original (i,e,, not a
reprint), maybe set a minimum length.  I use TOGS here as my model--half a column as
formatted for the newsletter, and we don't judge the quality of the writing (so long
as the editor isn't grossed out), just the intent to make a positive contribution.
b.  A dm column where one is "due."  Again, no judgment on quality of writing, should
be dm-related, and I would say (this is just me) a minimum length of maybe five
c.  Personals.  More than just "you suck," or "good fight."  How much more doesn't
really concern me, and quality, other than "not offensive to the editor," should not
be an issue.  We don't want to encourage participation and then muzzle it.
d.  It has been suggested that a reward point or two be offered for running a full
team.  We could include this, but my own inclination would be to say that there would
be no points for this, but that those who don't make a clear effort on this
(accidents happen, so maybe something like "when the three-turn total of fights is
below twelve"?) aren't eligible for points on any turn until they get it back up to a
full team.

2.  How to reward it.
a.  We've been thinking nebulously about some kind of point system, obviously, as an
example, say 3 points for a spotlight, 2 for a column, 1 for personals, more points
here for what takes more effort, but some points for any effort.  This is in no way
final!  But some way to keep track of who is contributing and how much, and as non-
subjective as possible; this would be noted as each newsletter would be proofed.  A
way to clearly identify who's sending in what would help, but I can work it out by
referring to the warrior listings if I have to.
b.  But, assuming a point system, do the rewards, whatever they end up being, go to
the player who achieves a certain point total?  Is this calculated per turn, or as a
running total over as many turns as it takes to reach that point?  Or to the player
with the highest total on any given turn?  What about ties?
c.  What do the points get the player?  The current thought is X points gets a free
fight, probably replacing the "Popularity Leader's" free fight in the relevant arena.
That suggests only one player getting a role-play free fight on any given turn.  Is
this enough to encourage the newsletter participation we're hoping for?  Should we
convert "This Week's Favorite" to a role-play free fight also?  Or handle rewards in
some other way entirely?

3.  Where it happens.
The current thought is, try it in four arenas:  one in each region, and one slow
arena.  Who picks the arenas in question?  I'd be inclined to rule out those that are
doing fairly well already (Ardivent, Sunset, Lapur; Arkers, Morya, North Fork), but
is that wise?  Or even fair?  Darned if I know.  Places where it is NOT currently
intended to happen:  Transfer arenas.  Maybe rule out the no-tourney arenas as
current candidates, too?

If this seems to work well enough to be worth the effort, should we consider
extending it to more, eventually to all non-transfer, arenas?

This is not a "someday down the line we might" concept.  We want to do this, and
SOON.  Your feedback would be appreciated, for, against, changes, anything.  You can
email me directly at jputney zianet com (make sure it says DM in the subject line) or
send a diplo to scribe, any arena.

the Scribe

P.S.  Staff members not to be eligible for role-playing free fights.

The Battle Royal V is upon us!  Come join one of the original contests that has had
some of the games best managers involved in the past.  DM 18, Talcama, some consider
it to be the crown jewel of the Delarq cities is where this contest will take place.

The Battle Royal is intended to be a play as you want, play what you want Delarquan
style contest with very few rules.  While I'd love to say, "NO AVOIDING" is the only
rule (and that wouldn't be too far off), I must spell out situations that can and
have occurred and require additional clarification.

The advantages of this format:
1) Simple.
2) No penalty for DAs.
3) No restrictions on warriors entered into the contest (baggers, TC mods, etc all
4) No penalty for not fighting. 
5) It isn't a race where 21 wit and favorite learn determine the victor.
6) Losing a warrior (or even your whole team) doesn't eliminate you from contention.
7) It is possible to overcome almost any deficit.  And this has been proven, with
   managers making huge point swings in short periods of time!
8) It is a contest designed to show manager skill rather than warrior ability.

There are a few disadvantages:
1) There is no set end.  It is possible for this contest to go on indefinitely.  In
   practice, this format has worked very nicely in the past and I expect it will
   continue to work well. 
2) You cannot avoid (But that is part of the fun and the head to head nature of this
   contest requires this rule.)
3) It encourages bloodshed.
4) Baggers and experienced warriors have an advantage over new warriors.

Battle Royal Rules:

- Any team in Talcama is eligible to participate.  There are no restrictions on
warriors (baggers, TC prize modified, etc).  However, any warrior that fights for
your team is considered in the BR.

- Teams may not avoid any other team within the contest.  (Note that you may avoid
teams outside the contest but you do so at your own risk.)  Avoiding a team on the
turn they enter the Battle Royal is not considered against the rules (since you
couldn't know the team wasn't part of the BR).  The suggestion is not to avoid at
all.  Assur (the contest moderator) gets an avoid report every turn and will catch
people avoiding!

- Managers may only enter a single team in the contest.

- Any manager with more than one team in Talcama may not challenge any other contest
warrior with their non contest team(s).  The intention is that no advantage can be
gained by having multiple teams in the arena.

****Failure to comply with the above rules***
1st offense: Disqualification from the prize, but you may still participate.
2nd offense: Warning.
3rd offense: Removal from Battle Royal.

- If a manager decides to switch teams, his score will start back at 0.  This is to
prevent a manager from sweeping the contest with several teams of sandbaggers.  Can a
manager use this clause to go from a negative score to zero?  Yes.  I realize this is
sort of cheating, but I'd rather have a manager start over with a new team than drop
out of the contest.  Even so, they have to start at 0 and must gain 25 points.

- If your warrior loses a contest fight because of an input error and this error is
verified by RSI, you will have a point added to your score.  The head to head records
will remain the same and any points gained by another manager will remain on that
manager's record.

- As soon as you are announced in the newsletter, you are officially entered into the
Battle Royal.  Scoring begins on that turn!  You are expected to follow the rules
that turn and every turn following.  Your team may enter any time they wish during
the course of the Battle Royal.

- If you are exiting the Battle Royal, you are not removed until the turn after your
intention is published.  You are asked to follow the rules for that turn (either
through not avoiding or not running your warriors).

- Scoring begins the turn your team declares participation.
- Scoring continues through the turn your team withdraws.
- Score is calculated by: Wins+Kills-Lossses.
- Only fights with other B.R. participannts count towards your score, but they count
  whether they are challenges or random match-ups.
- First Manager to 25 points wins!
- In event of tie, B.R. continues until one team that has reached 25 points is ahead
  of all other participants.

- The attempt has been made to make these rules as complete and bulletproof as
possible, but Tripwire will resolve any disputes as fairly as he is capable.

For the Winner:

6 Months Free Play in Talcama for the winning team (doesn't include tourneys)!

One +1 Bonus Potion (up to max for warrior, to be used on a warrior in DM 18)!

One Limited Damage Bump Potion (one time use, up to max for stats, used on DM 18

One Minor Stat Switch Prize (up to 2 points can be moved from one stat to another
stat on a new rollup in DM 18, before adding 14 points.  This prize can be used up to
3 months from the contest end.  Both points must be used in the same place (can't
take one from a speed and one from deftness and add one to wit and will)).

One Favorites Knowledge Potion (to be used on a 5+ FE warrior in DM 18).

Rename One Dark Arena Creature in DM 18, which will be renamed for 6 Months or until
the Ladies decide to return it to the previous name.

All potions renaming prizes must be used within 2 turns of the end of the contest.

Endurance Award (available to all participants):

One +1 Bonus Potion (up to max for warrior, to be used on a warrior in DM 18).

To qualify for the Endurance Award you must participate in 90% of the total fights
possible over the course of the BR.  If you don't have time to make it into the BR by
the first turn, there will be a two turn window before the counter will start for new
teams.  The fights do not have to be BR point scoring fights, just 90% of the total
possible participation over the course of the contest!  So, if the contest runs 26
turns, there are 130 fights possible. Your team must have 117 fights during those 26
turns to be eligible.

All prizes/potions subject to RSI's interpretation of how they are used/implemented.
RSI said the faves knowledge must be used on an Inits warrior or higher and set at
5FE or more.
