                             Notes from the arena champ.

My deepest apologies for not getting Shadrach's DM Column in last turn.  Looks like
I'm gonna be singing the rollup blues in Talcama for a bit.  Assuming Shadrach & The
S-Man pick up a couple PP's this turn, I've got 5 open slots on my two teams here.
I'm not expecting either of new recruits the commission sent me to make my cut, but
I've been surprised before, so I'm giving them at least one turn on the sands to
prove themselves.

My graduate and the 2 that 'should' graduate this turn:
     Forged in L.A. (60FE) 12-15-7-21-10(1)-9-11 B
          Norm End/Norm Dmg
          33(+1)/23/31/21/20/29
          HI/LO HL, learns Parry
     Shadrach (37FE) 16(1)-5(1)-5-15-21-13-11 SL
          Good End/Good Dmg
          31(-1)/20/30/8/14/17
     The S-Man (31FE) 13(1)-12(2)-7-17(1)-21(1)-9-11(1) PS
          Great End/Good Dmg
          22/11/20(+1)/24(+3)/12/24

Assuming my warriors graduate, I'm just two styles away from my second round robin of
styles graduated from Shepherds.  Yes, I know Suave is closing in on his third round
robin of graduates and I don't have my records in front of me, but it is very
possible one or more of the IT alliance members have also finished their second round
robin as well.  Meanwhile, I think Doc Steele is working towards his third ten-pack
of Lungers.  <grin>

I'm still having fun here, and still have goals to reach.  And Shepherds is my fun
team, where I can do whatever I want and run anything that meets my fancy.  I'll see
you all in the Dark Arena (at least for the near term).

Assur

P.S.  I am looking towards the next BR contest.  I thought the last one was a huge
success.  Nothing firmed up yet, though, but it is going to happen.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TALCAMA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as BIG MEAN FISH is pushed out 
of top team by BURN N' PILLAGE, who came from 3rd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  HELP 
WANTED stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 9 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 10th place.  Good work, guys!  The CENTER FOR OLDS guild has 
had a 3-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, WHET WILLIAM fought GHOST GOBY and gained 47 
points and contributed to CENTER FOR OLDS' 3-1-1.  SALLY FOURTH has lost to MANAGER, 
falling 10 points, while helping make FUNKY FOLK a 1-2-0 turn.  This week's 
Duelmaster bout was between CHUNKY SUPERDUDE and our Duelmaster SHADRACH, making a 
challenge.  And not without some honor, CHUNKY SUPERDUDE now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of TALCAMA.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Original Arthur's Last Stand until 
they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  WASTELAND has cause to stand tall, 
as they were TALCAMA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided WASTELAND stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
CENTER FOR OLDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that HOFFA from 
ARROGANCE was TALCAMA's most challenged warrior this turn.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  COUNT IN 
THE CELLAR, does your manager know you're challenging down 19 points to fight KA'ZEEN 
from HELLBOURNE?  It pains me to see warriors take advantage of the system like this. 
COUNT IN THE CELLAR bested KA'ZEEN, as if it surprises anyone.  In a brave attempt, 
MERCURY from HEAVYMETAL KIDS challenged up 20 points to fight PANTHER GROUPER from 
the BIG MEAN FISH stable.  MERCURY perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was 
subdued by PANTHER GROUPER and ended up with 6 recognition points.  BUBOLA of CENTER 
FOR OLDS had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge 
which she lost.  I thought BUBOLA showed great skill and promise when she was bested 
by LOWELL HALE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  GHOST GOBY has departed TALCAMA, leaving BIG MEAN FISH without their 
18-16-0 warrior.  Question, just what was its team doing at the taverns last night?  
The bigger they are, as they say.  And what I say is that WHET WILLIAM had better 
watch out for BIG MEAN FISH, seeing as GHOST GOBY felled he this turn.  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TALCAMA and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TALCAMA again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Gad -- You're just lucky someone replaced my battle axe with a dagger.  Otherwise,
we'd've gone 5-0. -- Ungood

Ungood -- Blame my handwriting, I suppose.  Dang. -- Suave

Help Wanted and Heavymetal Kids --  Welcome and welcome back! -- Suave

With the relatively recent influx of new blood, any shot of someone listing the
managers presently running around here?

     Ask me again next turn.  My records are in considerable disarray pending a
     complete change of venue.  Or something like that. -- The Saint, temporarily
     disorganized keeper of lists

Doc Steele -- You plan on hanging out until I notch #1000?  If you don't start
running more than one guy, how do you expect to stay ahead of me in wins? -- Suave

TUM -- Same goes for you and your one-man squad.  You've got an immortal here; DA him
some and get some replacements, why don'tcha?

Boy, we are not good.  What happened? -- Moribund, considering wearing a bag over his
head in shame

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.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is

too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!
