                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well isn't this a fine how-do-you-do?  I sidled into the chair without so much as a
teeny fan-fare explosion, or the sea of shoulders to make sure my hallowed feet don't
tread upon mortal soil, or a chorus of young'ns caterwauling the arrival of my august
and austere (and humble) personage.  Nope.  Nothing.  A key to the washroom and a
reminder to turn out the lights when I leave.  Maybe I'll sell the place when no
one's looking.

(but at least there's) Estrella, I commend you on your warrior's acumen and
perspicacity in recognizing the inherent qualities in...my...herent.  At least you've
the class (breeding tells) and personal confidence to acknowledge a fellow
combatant's achievements.  Hooray for me. -- Sadie, Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KOLACT once again!  Woof!  QUBIT were a bunch of dogs after 
SPRINGBORN got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n 
down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, THE 
HAUNTED's 5th moved them up to 2-1-1 place.  What's with WALDO?  He actually beat 
QUBIT's QUIP, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
SPRINGBORN while they watched WALDO clobber QUIP.  He lost 4 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  ESTRELLA was reminded on the sands why SADIE is 
Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  SIR COPHAGUS proved too determined for CALLISTO.  
CALLISTO was lucky to go in the ring, with 6-4-0 to his credit.  He will be 
remembered.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young 
rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Quip -- Now that's not funny.  Waldo being taken to the woodshed by the Concubine
(pure poison)...now that's funny. -- Wanda the Wondrous.  Wondrously woeful that is.
"But I'll bounce back..."

Quasimodo -- You know, we need music for this.  Who can we get to do the soundtrack?
-- Estrella
P.S.  Okay, it might not make things better, but it sure couldn't make them worse!

Sir Cophagus -- Somebody should just BURY you, and NOT in the sand, either. -- Actaon
P.S.  Big, heavy stones.

Sir Cumference -- Aha!  I got around you that time! -- Callisto
P.S.  You note that in the Infirmary you woke up "out of round"?  Astute of them to
notice, hmm?

Quiznos -- If your name were spelled backward, you'd be Sonziuq.  I never guessed!
This could be of grave importance to the general scheme of things here on Kolact. --
Cynica

     Sonziuq makes me think of a sneeze.  With lemon juice, for some reason. -- Ed.

Sura -- You're some kind of demon, right?  It says here, that a-sura means demon or
generally nasty type of manifestation, and you do seem to have that in you. --
Tiusday
P.S.  But I bet we can beat it out of you.

Sadie -- (shuddering)  I saw.  Glad you only used a pinch of it on me. -- Estrella

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
manager.
     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.
