                             Notes from the arena champ.

Alas, I will be leaving Sunset for awhile.  Volleyball hits 30FE this turn and
Swimming graduates.  For those interested, here is Swimming:

16(1)-4-8-21-17-12-7 B Norm End/Good Dmg (needed train for Good Dmg)
29/13/29/16/20(+4)/25

I don't have the faves in front of me, but they were unexciting to me.  (not HL or
GS, not MO AL)

I'm very late on this column, so I'd best get it in, but I will leave you with a
quote....

     "All I'm asking for is what I want." -- Rickey Henderson

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of SUNSET.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at LAKOTA left 
the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by DOC LEGRAND'S AVIANS.  
Good show!  Those betting on FORCED VENGEANCE lost their shirt, as FORCED VENGEANCE 
lost their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  What's a move up by 7 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to D.R.I..  Good things come 
to those who fight well, as DOC LEGRAND'S AVIANS can attest, moving up by 4.  
Practice pays for ZAN, who pummelled FIRST RESERVE, to pocket 19 points.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 14 points to 
MUSHIKU BO.  (Discrete enough, BLACK TIGER?) Well, Duelmaster SWIMMING Dark Arena 
Challenged DARK ARENA's ARENAMASTER HARTH.  Is a 14-6-0 good enough?  The crowds were 
amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER HARTH killed the Duelmaster, SWIMMING, leaving 
SPORTS in mourning.  The audience got their money's worth, as they witnessed HART 
CRANE attain the throne at the cost of SWIMMING's life!  Word has it one team in 
SUNSET is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in SUNSET avoid LITERATE LOONS.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of GRIM FANDANGO, so did that sorry team shy from 
LITERATE LOONS Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and CROUCHING HAMSTER is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't D.R.I. proud!  VENGEFUL VULTURE 
challenged CROUCHING HAMSTER!  Who says DOC LEGRAND'S AVIANS are just a bunch of 
wimps!  VENGEFUL VULTURE of DOC LEGRAND'S AVIANS kept his wits as he was bested by 
CROUCHING HAMSTER.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in SUNSET is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing 
Spyreports for SUNSET?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

General Ikillu -- That takes such effort.  I'd just zip out my quick-draw and as fast
as a speeding bullet, there need be no contact.  Some crud carry such disgusting
germs you know? -- Sir Steel

Sherman -- I may be a bad boy, but I take great offense when you utter me in the same
breath as Philthy Phil!  He stands in the gutter alone. -- Sir Steel

Swimming -- Again?!  I hate Andorian arenas!  That's enough! -- Sir Steel

Bravos AND Bonedust!?  You are a creature of cad, Stik.  Are you allied with Philthy
Phil and Generalissimo Ikillu? -- Sir Steel

G.I. -- Wow, remind me not to hold you up a knife point for cash at the next FtF
we're both at!  Note to self, bring...gun...(grin)...As for your warriors and their
potential, to quote a popular sports cliche', it is what it is, isn't it?  I've seen
enough rollups since 1985 to be fairly certain yours won't make me wet myself or
faint, at least not from fear.  Your record is your record.  After you've stuck
around for a couple years, played consistently, picked up 100+ wins, stayed above
.500, and all your guys have busted out and terrorized and dominated Sunset for turns
on end, then you get the nod.  Until then, maybe the AA need to worry more about
showing up and fighting and not so much about talking.  Blades up.... -- Stik
P.S.  If you've seen Ron Burgundy over-emoting in a phone booth in Anchorman, then
you know of what I speak.  If not, it's a must rent!

Mr. Sir Steel -- Yeah, it's gotten a bit hostile around here lately, but that's cool.
The "Friendly Delarquan" can take it! -- Stik
P.S.  Humbug?  It was YOU that kicked Tiny Tim's crutch out from under him on
Christmas day, admit it!!

Sherman -- I see we're still busy making friends and spreading Yuletide cheer, as
well! -- Stik

Crowbar -- Thanks for the going-away present!  I used to bend guys like you into
pretzels back in my days with the carnival! -- Lord Protector Bonedust

Vincent -- It's just tough to resist...(EG) -- Bravos

Blessed Bluejay -- What he said! -- G.T.

Hamsun -- That must have looked a bit like Daffy and Porky doing Robinhood on the
log...at some point, I WILL cave your skull in.... -- Vulge

Duelmaster Swimming -- Congrats on your invite, so sorry your challenge didn't get
through, I was busy avoiding that.  See you at the Isle! -- Lord Protector Bonedust

Assur & Swimming -- What's it been, one round of actual fighting followed by three
turns of taking bows and blowing kisses.  Alright, we get it, you're leaving.
What're we suppose to get all weepy and throw a parade?  The encore isn't meant to be
longer than the program.  Enough already, if you're gonna go, get out.... -- Sherman,
mgr. Literate Loons

Stik -- Speak for yourself!  While I agree the verbal macho strutting is tiresome,
degrading insults are still integral to the battlefield.  Trash talk is certainly
preferable to the triple-kiss face-sucking Assur, Doc LeGrand, and yourself have been
engaged in the last few turns. -- Sherman

Shaman, the (self-proclaimed) warrior -- You're obviously unfamiliar with the old
adage, 'you can't get a hit unless you swing'.  Luckily, I was able to swing enough
for both of us, and you were more than eager to take all the hits. -- Hart Crane

Flaming Flamingo -- I don't have to be a seer to see a quick return to the top of the
arena in your future.  Very impressive.  If I get my way, you won't be facing any of
my warriors again. -- Sherman

Vulge -- I never could stomach that nauseous name of yours. -- Hamsun

Swimming -- That match-up wasn't favorable, eh?  Honestly, though, while I did want
to win, I'm glad to know that I don't have your continued career as a waiter on my
conscience.  A bar towel is no tool for a gladiator.  You look much nastier with that
hammer in your hands.  Good luck night fighting! -- Black Tiger

Hart Crane -- I am impressed.  Honestly, I am.  I thought that would be a favorable
match-up for me.  I was wrong. -- Shaman, the warrior

Sherwood -- Yes, it is true, I am a bit lower in the rankings at the moment.
However, it seems odd for someone with 15 losses and a record that is 4 losses under
the even mark to comment on another's status.  You're no more eligible for style-
master status at the moment than I am.  Don't worry, I'll catch you soon enough. --
Dream

Bad Handwriting -- That fight certainly didn't look like a TV.  I guess it is all in
the match-ups. -- Nerve Raker

Assur -- Come on, stick around for awhile!  There have to be a few sports out there
worth giving some time to.  Perhaps a little Volleyball? -- Nomad

ANNOUNCING THE NO-TOURNAMENT ARENA (81)

As an American I honor my cultural heritage by stealing any good idea.  This idea was
originally proposed by Lord Xiang in November 2005.  RSI will be opening the arena
(81) for teams willing to sign the following pledge:

*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this arena to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this arena.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena
1.  No tournament play for warriors in this arena (Dead tournament or otherwise).
2.  One team per manager.
3.  Teams start with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena.
5.  Twenty teams required, per RSI.
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead).
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

The main purpose of the Player Committee is to maintain fair play in the arena:
*  Warriors that participate in Tournaments will be sent to the Dark Arena until they
   are dead.  This means that the Player Committee has the power to send another
   player's warrior to the Dark Arena
*  Managers that abuse the rules of the Arena may be banned/transferred from the
   Arena.

The player with the most votes for Chairman will fill slot 1 [Chairperson] and that
term expires end of March 2007.
The player with the most votes overall will fill slot 5 and that term expires end of
November 2007.
The player with the second most votes overall will fill slot 4 and that term expires
end of September 2007.
The player with the third most votes overall will fill slot 3 and that term expires
end of November 2007.
The player with the fourth most votes overall will fill slot 2 and that term expires
end of May 2007.

During the month that the chairperson's term expires the Player Committee will select
one of the remaining 4 players to be the next chairperson.  During the month that any
member's term expires the arena will vote for a different player to join the Players'
Committee.

If you want to be a candidate for the player committee:
1.  Post a message in the Duel2 Forum at
    http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Forums
2.  E-Mail Deke at DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
3.  Send a Diplomatic Note to Doc LeGrand's Lab [ARENA 81]

There are 4 steps to joining this arena
1) Send in a new team rollup to RSI with the following pledge taped/stapled to the
rollup sheet, or transfer a ZERO FIGHT EQUIVALENT TEAM to Arena 81 and send RSI the
following form.

No-Tournament Arena (81)
*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

     RSI will be processing overviews for this arena as soon as you send them into
RSI.
     The first turn will run in January 2007.  This will be a normal speed arena.
     While I am encouraging everyone to use TEAM MAINTENANCE it is not mandatory.
The intent is that players that run turns will run a full team.  One warrior teams
are discouraged and will a topic for the Player Committee to resolve.
     I also encourage players to join the Duel2 Yahoo Group for faster updates and
feedback.  http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/duel/

     Deke Young will not be part of the inaugural Player Committee, maybe later once
the Arena direction has been developed.
     Any questions can be directed to DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
     I will track Awards in Arena 81, which will be posted on a web site and included
in the following turn's newsletter.

The Honor of Sunset Award:
     The first team to reach 10 Team Kills.  In the case that there is more than one
team that achieves 10 Team Kills on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most kills.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Kills, I will prolong
the contest until one team has the most Kills in the Arena (it does not have to be
one of the teams that first reached 10 Team Kills.)

The Race to Victory Award:
     The first team to reach 75 Team Wins.  In the case that there is more than one
team that reaches 75 Team wins on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most wins.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Wins, I will prolong the
contest until one team has the most wins in the Arena (it does not have to be one of
the teams that first reached 75 Team Wins.)

The Commitment to Change Award:
     The first team to reach 125 Team Fights.  In the case that there is more than
one team that reaches 125 Team Fights on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
team with the most fights.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Fights, I will
prolong the contest until one team has the most fights in the Arena (it does not have
to be one of the teams that first reached 125 Team Fights.)  I hope I never give out
this award {figure it out on your own.}

The Team Advancement Award:
     The first team to graduate 5 warriors to ADM.  In the case that there is more
than 1 team that graduates 5 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
first team to graduate 6 warriors.  In the case that there is more than 1 team that
graduates 6 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the first team to
graduate 7 warriors, and so on.

The Iron Throne Award:
     The first team to hold the Duelmaster for 10 turns STARTING ON TURN 11.

The Stylemaster Award.
     The first team to hold the Stylemaster Award in 7 different styles, STARTING ON
TURN 11.  If two teams obtain Stylemaster Awards in 7 styles on the same turn, the
goal will be increased to 8 Styles.

Team Recognition Points:  The total recognition points for all warriors in the arena
The Iron Throne Ledger:  We will track who has been the Duelmaster every turn in
     Arena history.
Iron Throne Counter:  The total number of times a team has been the Duelmaster.
Composite Team Stylemaster awards:  The number of times a team has had any of the 10
     Stylemasters.  Having 2 Stylemasters = 2 points that turn.
Challenge win percentage:  How often your warriors win when they challenge.
Challenge Defender rate:  How often your warriors win when they WERE challenged.
Team Invitations:  Number of warriors graduated to ADM.
Team Graduation Rate:  Total team fights/Graduated Warriors.
Team Kill Percentage:  Total of team Kills/Team Fights
Team Death Percentage:  Total of Team Deaths/Team Fights
Team Revenge Rate: Number of Deaths/BloodFeuds Revenged (Note that the Dark Arena
     will be counted as not-revenged.)  You only get credit for one successful
     BloodFeud per death (though I encourage you to BloodFeud all 4 turns.)
Current Win Streaks:  Warriors that have gone the most turns without losing or
     missing a turn.
Team Yahtzee counter:  Number of times a team has gone 5-0 in a turn.
Team Bagel counter:  Number of times a team has fought without a win.
Team Dark Arena counter:  Number of times each team has used the Dark Arena.
The Most Feared (avoided) Team counter:  Number of turns that team was the most
     avoided team.

     We will create a web page just for Arena 81 category leaders.
     Hope to see you there. -- Deke
