Sit back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis. We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on. FOREIGN LEGION now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it. It looks like the guys(?) at FOREIGN LEGION had a good week as they went 5-0-0 to put them in 1st place. I guess steroids help! Hey everybody, watch out for RED FANG, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing SHIFTYEYED VOLUNTEER like a melon. Keep your eye on this guy. And falling like a basher in the top ten was ENCLOPLASMIC, who dropped 6 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with DANISH PASTRY. Unlike most arenas, TIPPI TURTLE managed to get his challenge off against the 17-22-1 CYTOPLASMIC. Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was BIO WARFARE's CYTOPLASMIC, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by TIPPI TURTLE. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TOBIR arena. Here's a song for you: Who's afraid of the big, bad THE DEATH SQUAD? Big bad THE DEATH SQUAD. Big bad THE DEATH SQUAD. TOBIR's afraid of the big bad THE DEATH SQUAD. Tra la la la la! Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch FOREIGN LEGION's act in the arena. Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from THE DEATH SQUAD. Well just about everybody wants a piece of CHICHI-HOOEY, who was this week's most challenged warrior. Was it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had SPONGEBOB challenge up 37 points in the rankings to take on GOLGI APPARATUS? A Carrion Bird Sellout: SPONGEBOB 7-8-0 fights GOLGI APPARATUS 10-5-2. (BYOB) MICHAEL PALIN of MONTY PYTHON had better have a good reason for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he won. I thought MICHAEL PALIN showed great skill and promise when he beat ANDILLIA. All right, so I slept through it! Big deal! Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day drinking to their memory. Better tanked than dead! Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no. Silly buggers, eh? Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TOBIR have no sense of humor. Or maybe that they were senseless. C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks. Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos). Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME TIPPI TURTLE 4351 16 4 0 112 THE DEATH SQUAD (63) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME GOLGI APPARATUS 4342 10 5 2 122 BIO WARFARE (439) CYTOPLASMIC 4309 17 23 1 100 BIO WARFARE (439) -TANTRUM 4285 12 13 2 96 PLAYPEN (435) MICHAEL PALIN 2750 11 2 0 93 MONTY PYTHON (312) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME ANDILLIA 4255 17 29 0 80 THE DOGHOUSE (188) SPONGEBOB 4367 7 8 0 76 THE DEATH SQUAD (63) -BINKIE 4298 16 8 2 75 PLAYPEN (435) BURNT OUT HIPPIE 4402 8 2 0 74 THE DEATH SQUAD (63) DANISH PASTRY 4400 7 4 0 70 FOREIGN LEGION (445) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME CHICHI-HOOEY 4270 13 26 0 65 THE DOGHOUSE (188) ENCLOPLASMIC 4307 6 5 0 59 BIO WARFARE (439) -PAMPER PACKER 4284 12 13 0 57 PLAYPEN (435) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME BWUCE REE 4388 6 1 0 53 FOREIGN LEGION (445) ITALIAN STALLION 4399 10 1 0 50 FOREIGN LEGION (445) CRACK BABY 4279 9 14 0 41 THE DEATH SQUAD (63) SHLEPROCK 4376 5 7 0 39 THE DEATH SQUAD (63) MAGINOT LINE 4393 4 3 0 38 FOREIGN LEGION (445) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME GERBENT 4401 5 7 0 28 THE DOGHOUSE (188) E COLI 4343 4 8 0 25 BIO WARFARE (439) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME RED FANG 4444 1 0 0 13 THE DOGHOUSE (188) -YARD APE 4408 1 1 1 9 PLAYPEN (435) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME RUSSIAN WINTER 4443 1 0 0 8 FOREIGN LEGION (445) SCRUFF 4421 2 1 0 7 THE DOGHOUSE (188) RED BLOOD CELL 4420 0 3 0 3 BIO WARFARE (439) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.

Will find a way to travel and send in ads at the same time someday I hope. -- Seraphim Burnt out Hippie -- The boss is out of town for a few days and I get my first loss. Not that he uses avoids anyway. Good fight, now I have to explain to him why I lost. Maybe I can blame maintenance. -- IT Stallion Crack Baby -- Stay off the drugs, and tell your mom I said hi. -- Bwuce E Coli -- You look ill. -- The Line Michael Palin -- I forgive you, because your victory over me brought me my secret admirer. I've always wanted to know my secret admirer (it isn't you), so, thanks. Don't expect to see me around for a while, though. We're going away for a wild weekend. -- Andillia Red Blood Cell -- Hey, I was just, you know, checking to make sure you were present. And you were. In fact, there were lots of you. Is this allowed? I didn't hire on to fight myrmidons. -- Scruff P.S. Very red. Quite scarlet, in fact. Golgi Apparatus -- Heck. You really had to work for that one, as I had a CN of 15! -- Ghost of White Fang Shleprock -- Where have you been hiding, and whatever possessed you to come out of hiding at this inopportune moment? You could've been killed out there, you know! It happens. -- Chi-Chi Hooey I don't LIKE guys with shifty eyes, okay? They make me nervous. You can never tell what they're thinking, you can't even tell what they're looking at! They're untrustworthy. Suspicious. Bad news, sooner or later. -- Gerbent P.S. So better to bite 'em sooner. Wong Way -- Gods, you had a winning record, and your manager sent you to the Dark Arena? That's hard. Maybe you'll be reborn as a manager, and your manager can be reborn as a gladiator, and you can send HIM to the Dark arena. -- the warriors at the Doghouse 11 August 2006 All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights! If war is declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light! We have been quietly awaiting such a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians: DM 31, Attn: Timothias)! Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down "Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of Light 26 August 2006 The Avengers of Light. Another VC lackey? What's the matter VC, are you scared? Bringing in reinforcements. It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be crushed! I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106. I reply with steel and your women shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!! Remember to sign your posts to whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm 4 September 2006 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 LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS TIPPI TURTLE unbelievably bested CYTOPLASMIC in a 7 minute Challenge Title fight.
