                             THE ADM REGIONAL TOURNAMENT

The next ADM Regional Tournament will be held in the months of October/November 2011
and will be contested in the regular arenas during the late Summer months.

Q: What is the ADM Regional Tournament?
A: The ADM Regional Tournament is a competition where the best and brightest warriors
   from the ADM regionals compete for bragging rights and to see which region is the

Q: How does it work?
A: During the month of October, the warriors of each Regional Team will be temporarily
   moved to a special regional arena, where they will battle it out in a single
   elimination tournament.  The last warrior standing wins for his region.  (Learns,
   skills, and FE gained during the contest will not be permanent.)

   Results will be posted online during the months of October/November.

Q: How are teams determined?
A: There are 10 warrior slots given out to each team. The 10 Stylemasters of each
   regional arena during Saturday, October 15th will automatically qualify and be

   To qualify for a Stylemaster position, you must have been active in the arena in 4
   of the prior 6 turns including the last one (2 of the last 3 for Crysalis).  (Thus,
   you'll want to activate your warriors before the week of July 23rd, to be safe.)

   Should a team not be able to qualify all 10 warriors, they may select wildcard
   entrants to fill those empty slots.  However, they must have at least 7 different
   styles represented AND no more than 2 of any style.  Should they not be able to
   meet this criteria, their team will be filled with NPCs.

   Each manager may only play for 1 region and may qualify no more than 3 warriors on
   a regional team.  They may play a 3rd warrior only if everyone else who wants to
   participate already has 2 and/or there is no other option.  A manager may not have
   more than 1 warrior of the same style on the regional team.

Q: What's a Regional Coordinator?
A: The Regional Coordinator is the unofficial "team captain":  They are in charge of
   putting together their team based on the rules, trying to make sure everyone is
   included and that any disputes are handled.  (For instance, if someone qualifies
   more than 2 warriors, the regional coordinator will work with that manager and
   determine which warriors will participate on the team, and then notify
   replacements, etc.)

   The Regional Coordinators are: Manager (Andorak), Buri(Darkholm), The Dark One
   (Free Blades), Crip (Crysalis), Master Darque (Unnamed No Tourney Arena), One Arm
   Bandit (Home Guard).  If you need to contact them, you can write a personal ad in
   the ADM arena, or send a diplo to them at:

                        Manager:        Superior Forces in DM 105
                        The Dark One:   Angels of Pain in DM 103
                        Buri:           Tackle Box in DM 104
                        One Arm Bandit: Sea Dogs in DM 101
                        Crip:           Royal Flush in DM 106
                        Master Darque:  Darque Ages in DM 81

Q: What does happen if someone qualifies more than 2 warriors?
A: That manager will be able to decide which 2 to send (or, if there are no other
   options, the manager may send 3--see above) and the next highest qualifying warrior
   will be able to take place of the warrior that doesn't get sent if it's an
   automatic spot.  It's definitely a good idea to communicate with your team
   coordinator and fellow teammates.  Remember, even though you are fighting for
   qualification spots, you all still want to put together a competitive team! (All
   of the captains treat this as an inclusive event so it's unlikely anyone will
   completely get left out in the cold.)

Q: What if my warriors are not in ADM regional?  Or, what if they are in the wrong
   ADM regional?
A: If your warriors are in 100, or are in the wrong region, and they haven't fought
   since the split, you can request to CSR to have them moved into the proper
   regional arena.

Q: Is there a prize?
A: Bragging rights!

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You know the boss is busy when he can't even manage to deliver a duelmaster's
column!  Normally he considers that a critical part of the job.  And somehow it seems
to have happened twice on my watch!  Bugger.  But at least I will get to write this
column-- my last before leaving for the Isle!  After many turns in this arena
struggling to keep my record above the break even mark, it seems I am now assured of
finishing my career here without a losing record!  Will it be a winning record?  That
has yet to be determined.  For those who are curious, I am:  17-12-8-17-9-14-7
Striker.  I learned just under 2 skills a fight, but suffered from a defense favorite
learn and a tendency to learn two decise for every other skill I learned.  You might
think decise is good for a striker, and it is, but since I only recently attained
ratings in init and attack, I lost more than one fight in which I got to swing first.
But it did make the decise tactic unnecessary.  Now about this shortsword that
someone seems to think I favor ...
     As for the fights, Lila tried her best to put up a worthy fight.  But in this
case I had just too much decise for her.  But a celebratory mug of smash shall be
raised at the cabana!  After all, any fight you can walk away from is a good one.
And any fight that sends you off to the Isle and immortality is even better!   I do
believe after next turn we shall have to have a serious blow-out of a beach party!
And at that point I won't even mind if the smash is adulterated!  With fruits and
booze, of course.

Enjoy the sands of Bonsur! 

--Lord Protector Etugen Khan, Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of BONSUR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  BONSUR watched with 
glee as THE MOTHERSHIP 017 got knocked off top spot by SENTINELS!  What's with ROSS?  
He actually beat BONSUR's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and walked away with 12 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at BEACH BABES.  LUAU LILA lost 7 points to ALPHONSO 
BLACK.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LUAU LILA will provide more easy wins... 
UNDEAD ARTISTS' hatred of SENTINELS surfaced again as ESCHER challenged BONSUR's top 
dog.  ESCHER was reminded on the sands why ETUGEN KHAN is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  BONSUR thinks SENTINELS 
and their 471-316-22 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at UNDEAD ARTISTS ain't reelin'!  SENTINELS' 
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  So THE MOTHERSHIP 017 sent FESTER to the Dark Arena.  Big 
deal.  Plenty more fighters where FESTER came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, 
Spyreporters...  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To 
die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

So who is running the Mothership?


Sundancin' Sarah -- So, does the handicapper hate you this time around?  Or did I
have a style advantage?  Or was it just skill?  Or maybe I just had enough smash that
I didn't know when I should have quit?  Whatever it was, I'll take the win! --

Rhonda -- I understand the sentiment on the assassin, but I certainly hope it wasn't
aimed at all those you face on the arena sands.  I was hoping for a little post fight
smash.  Well, perhaps a ... big ... post fight smash. -- Alphonso

Lazinth -- Go back to that ship-thing of yours! -- Whiskeyjack

Ardis -- Ah, a win!  It feels good to get the first one out of the way! -- Janus

The Mothership -- A warrior named Fargo?  As I call Fargo home, I find the choice of
a name to be interesting.  What inspired the name?  (And please don't say
"woodchippers!") -- Nomad

Our whole-hearted congratulations to Etugen Khan.  Party tonight on the beach!
Barbecue, steel guitar, drinks with umbrellas in them, and lots of smash. -- Jorja
and the Beach Babes

Etugen Khan -- It was your day.  Go, girl! -- Luau Lila
P.S.  And then come enjoy roasted pig, yams, pineapple (QUITE fresh), and other good

Orsinius -- You were really wound up today, weren't you?  Well, it happens like that
sometimes.  You wake up in the morning and just KNOW that you can't lose. -- Sarah
Sundance, who did not wake up that way this morning

Alphonso Black -- Hmm.  Maybe I should offer you some of Kona Kate's licorice 
kaffe...? -- Redondo Rhonda
P.S.  Or just some really strong rum punch.

Fargo -- How can you be a golem?  I don't WANT to be viciously subdued by a golem
with more experience.  I want to fight a cute guy and have it ready to go either way,
depending on our moods. -- Dellea Dover

Fester -- This isn't helping my record, you know.  Or yours!  We both need more
balance. -- Pearl White
