                             Notes from the arena champ.

Here I am again.  Your Duelmaster once again.  Thanks to straight Line for an easy
fight and all those skills.  We've got to do that again.  I need lots of skills, so
you skills heavy fighters get on up here so I can challenge you.

Balance of Terror

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a 
look at KINDRED OF KAOS, who went down to 3rd from 7th.  Life is tough.  Coming up 
with a solid 3-2-0 outing, BALANCE OF TERROR has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was VALDRIC, who dropped 15 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with NYZEIL OGLATA.  Unlike most arenas, FORCAS 
managed to get his challenge off against the 16-13-1 JORRAM.  It's a proud day for 
the MALICIOUS INTENT stable, as their warrior, JORRAM, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. 
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that GROW was most avoided 
team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of GROW's warriors, I'm not 
surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause STEEL 
WOLVES beats feet every time GROW smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, 
but if challenges were votes, ETIEN HAXAN would be president.  Although it may be a 
contest he doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
NIGHTSONG went after QUORD RASSEL, who was higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, NIGHTSONG bested QUORD RASSEL.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Hexim Hsidar -- Well if you just stand there I'll split your head open like a melon
every time.  Next time pay the toll. -- Bridge Troll

Straight Line -- Well your sight must be a little crooked there, I am washed.  It's
my mind that's dirty. -- Dirty Old Man

All -- For those of you who don't know me, or have forgotten, I'm Pip the Troll.  I
run Special Ed and Kindred of Kaos.  I'm here to pursue my favorite pastime, passing
judgement on the Judge.  You ready to take a hit to your w/l% Judge? -- Pip the Troll
P.S.  Poop in a sock, OMG-STFU, Bridge Troll, and Judge's Secretary are all sitting
out for the tourney, make challenges accordingly.

Forcas -- I suppose you feel so PROUD that you can walk a... Straight Line
P.S.  I hate you.  You make me look bad.  What if Jorja gets fed up and decides to
send me to the Dark Arena?  She hasn't sent anyone yet this year, and might be
getting a little eager.  And it shouldn't be ME.
P.P.S.  I suppose you're going to hang around, balancing our terror against your
bloated pride, for three more turns, aren't you?

Damaged Denny -- It's your mixed blood.  Everybody says mixing human and elven blood
is GOOD, but it isn't.  It really screws people up.  As it did you. -- Erbin Frorlin
P.S.  Not to mention the identity crises it provokes.
P.P.S.  And you have a very unlucky number, besides.

Pretty Moth -- You're a GUY?  Does anyone KNOW that?  Do YOU know it?  Gods. -- Quord
Rassel

Blue Orc -- I think you should protest to your manager.  After all, you aren't an
orc, so you've got the identity crisis to start with, and then you're "blue," which
must be really depressing.  He's probably set you up to lose.  Most likely, he hates
you. -- Wendol Varn

Violet Orc -- Don't even get me STARTED, you pansy! -- Vinn Wulf
P.S.  A pansy is a subclass of violet, you know.

Etien Haxan -- Ha!  I am like an arrow that files in a Straight Line and pierces the
hearts of those who stand against me! -- Straight Line, who has been taking lessons
from the Obsessed Avenger of Home Guard

Eldar Barry -- Master is getting tired of me.  He's thinking of sending me to the
dark arena.  I hate to be for wins, but I'm desperate.  I need a good run of wins or
it's the swamp for me.  And I'm afraid of snakes. -- Etien Haxan

Pip's Doggie -- Bad dog!  Don't bite! -- Hexim Hsidar

Pip's Grandma -- Ouch!  You're one tough old broad! -- Nynaeve Haxan

Straight Line -- I need a little drink to ease the pain of my next embarrassing
defeat. -- Etien Haxan

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

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
