An Enlightened Being? Excuse me, aren't you a dwarf? How can you be enlightened if you spend all your time in a hole in the ground? Clemmie P.S. Just think of me as the rock falling from the ceiling of your tunnel and banging you over the head. SPY REPORT Greetings, Warriors of CALEAM. Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport. PHILANTHROPISTS had cause to celebrate, after IRON FORGE got 15 points by beating MAUREEN. A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 7 points to IRON FORGE. (Discrete enough, MAUREEN?) Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT CLEMMIE is still the Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points! So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk? Sounds like a PR stunt to me. My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights! Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SHERWOOD FOREST, alone and unchallenged. The warriors of SHERWOOD FOREST found their efforts at combat frustrated as PHILANTHROPISTS apparently had more important things to do than fight. Is it charming personality? Conversational abilities? Good oral hygiene? Whatever it is, GOLDERIE is the most challenged warrior. Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors. Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena. A certain tavern in CALEAM would I avoid! All good things must come to an end. As the seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place. Do not despair! I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME CLEMMIE 4630 10 10 1 61 GOLDEN CANYON (290) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -YUCKY TUCKY 4460 15 5 1 126 SHERWOOD FOREST (438) -SAILOR VENUS 4326 25 16 0 99 SHERWOOD FOREST (438) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -SUPER FREAK 4532 8 0 0 85 WARCKERS (362) -DARKLY 4572 7 1 1 71 WARCKERS (362) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -NOVERCAPHOBIA 4147 5 1 0 63 WATCH OUT!

Then I had to listen to you droning on and on and on about who- knows-what, and I changed my mind. -- Maureen Ah, yes, the Khalhums Not-really-a-dwarf. Pooh. -- Un-Seamstress, who un-did him completely Orth -- Pardon me while I yawn. Late night last night, you know, early morning this morning, and nothing going on now to stay awake for. -- Golderie Ghost of Deimess -- I didn't intend that to happen. I even attempted to donate blood, but they said that it was the wrong kind. I think your manager should sue the Infirmary. They kept you around and alive for TWO DAYS, and THEN let you die from loss of blood? Something suspicious in that. -- Loris Key, somewhat remorseful though not really to blame 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 PLEXIGLASSJAWJOE was viciously subdued by GOLDERIE in a 2 minute Challenge fight.
