                             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
   best!

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
   selected.

   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!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for DULLENS.  Too bad, HARRY POTTER AND THE, 
but CARDOW HUNTERS was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for BANGER 59?  ROOKIE 
METALLICA 39's proud of him after beating ANVIL and getting 25 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  MASHER's match with METHODSOFRATIONALITY cost him a loss of 15 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  KILLER stopped POLYJUICE TWINS dead 
in hers tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't 
ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
