                             Notes from the arena champ.

      How embarrassing!  I lost to the Khalhums Dwarf (who is not, for those who
haven't looked closely, a dwarf--no beard), and STILL I remain the Duel2Dudette.  We
definitely need more active warriors in this arena.  I should be a Challenge Adept,
not the Duel2Dudette.  There are several IN-active ones who could have taken the
title on points after my loss, but did they bother to suit up?  Not much.  Huh.
Bums.

                                        Clemmie

P.S.  I did better against that real dwarf, the Enlightened Being.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in CALEAM since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with GOLDMINE?  He 
actually beat PHILANTHROPISTS' ORTH, and walked away with 16 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at WARCKERS while they watched GOLDMINE clobber ORTH.  He 
lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure CALEAM 
is excited about YUCKY TUCKY, the new Duelmaster from SHERWOOD FOREST.  (remember?)  
But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, GOLDEN CANYON!  In my 
day, no team with a 497-683-20 would scare me off!  What's the problem, SHERWOOD 
FOREST?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, ORTH!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Plexiglassjawjoe -- Clever name.  But plexiglass DOES break, same as glass does. --
Golderie

Smaynurn -- Decidedly, you have an odd name.  At least, odd by the standards of my
homeland.  It makes me nervous.  I wonder what nasty surprises may be hiding behind
it, you know?  And when I get nervous, I'm prone to hit things. -- Loris Key

Iron Forge -- Eh?  Is there any other kind?  I didn't think forging was used for,
well, bronze or something.  But I could easily be wrong. -- Maureen
P.S.  Unless...as opposed to a Document Forge?

Shiftyeyed Volunteer?  Contemptible. -- Pike

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

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

14 September 2006
     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.
