                             THE ADM REGIONAL TOURNAMENT

The next ADM Regional Tournament will be held in the months of October/November 2011
and will be contested in the regular arenas during the late Summer months.

Q: What is the ADM Regional Tournament?
A: The ADM Regional Tournament is a competition where the best and brightest warriors
   from the ADM regionals compete for bragging rights and to see which region is the
   best!

Q: How does it work?
A: During the month of October, the warriors of each Regional Team will be temporarily
   moved to a special regional arena, where they will battle it out in a single
   elimination tournament.  The last warrior standing wins for his region.  (Learns,
   skills, and FE gained during the contest will not be permanent.)

   Results will be posted online during the months of October/November.

Q: How are teams determined?
A: There are 10 warrior slots given out to each team. The 10 Stylemasters of each
   regional arena during Saturday, October 15th will automatically qualify and be
   selected.

   To qualify for a Stylemaster position, you must have been active in the arena in 4
   of the prior 6 turns including the last one (2 of the last 3 for Crysalis).  (Thus,
   you'll want to activate your warriors before the week of July 23rd, to be safe.)

   Should a team not be able to qualify all 10 warriors, they may select wildcard
   entrants to fill those empty slots.  However, they must have at least 7 different
   styles represented AND no more than 2 of any style.  Should they not be able to
   meet this criteria, their team will be filled with NPCs.

   Each manager may only play for 1 region and may qualify no more than 3 warriors on
   a regional team.  They may play a 3rd warrior only if everyone else who wants to
   participate already has 2 and/or there is no other option.  A manager may not have
   more than 1 warrior of the same style on the regional team.

Q: What's a Regional Coordinator?
A: The Regional Coordinator is the unofficial "team captain":  They are in charge of
   putting together their team based on the rules, trying to make sure everyone is
   included and that any disputes are handled.  (For instance, if someone qualifies
   more than 2 warriors, the regional coordinator will work with that manager and
   determine which warriors will participate on the team, and then notify
   replacements, etc.)

   The Regional Coordinators are: Manager (Andorak), Buri(Darkholm), The Dark One
   (Free Blades), Crip (Crysalis), Master Darque (Unnamed No Tourney Arena), One Arm
   Bandit (Home Guard).  If you need to contact them, you can write a personal ad in
   the ADM arena, or send a diplo to them at:

                        Manager:        Superior Forces in DM 105
                        The Dark One:   Angels of Pain in DM 103
                        Buri:           Tackle Box in DM 104
                        One Arm Bandit: Sea Dogs in DM 101
                        Crip:           Royal Flush in DM 106
                        Master Darque:  Darque Ages in DM 81

Q: What does happen if someone qualifies more than 2 warriors?
A: That manager will be able to decide which 2 to send (or, if there are no other
   options, the manager may send 3--see above) and the next highest qualifying warrior
   will be able to take place of the warrior that doesn't get sent if it's an
   automatic spot.  It's definitely a good idea to communicate with your team
   coordinator and fellow teammates.  Remember, even though you are fighting for
   qualification spots, you all still want to put together a competitive team! (All
   of the captains treat this as an inclusive event so it's unlikely anyone will
   completely get left out in the cold.)

Q: What if my warriors are not in ADM regional?  Or, what if they are in the wrong
   ADM regional?
A: If your warriors are in 100, or are in the wrong region, and they haven't fought
   since the split, you can request to CSR to have them moved into the proper
   regional arena.

Q: Is there a prize?
A: Bragging rights!

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

My Fellow Gladiators!

     Once upon a time, I dared not dream of sitting hear even once, let alone holding
the lofty title of Duelmaster for weeks on end.  Like many of you, I had some talent
with blades as a child and, again, as I suspect many of you do, I harbored dreams of
perhaps achieving immortality.  Again, I dared not dream of this, and have fought
down thoughts of this, for fear of jinxing myself...
     ...but, Daemonspawn, having been apprised of my most recent victory and the
nature of that victory, has seen fit to divulge some secrets to me.  Apparently, the
team owners and managers have long watched the training and nature of those warriors
who\'ve been selected to travel to the Isle of the Eye.  Through sharing and
analyzing these observations, they have come to understand when most warriors will
receive their invitation, should they survive to that point.  According to
Daemonspawn, I need only win one more bout, and I shall receive that invitation.
Immortality?! At long last...
     In celebration of this invitation, Daemonspawn has told me that he will allow me
to attend the summer tournament as an immortal champion (that was the term he used).
First, though, I must win my very next fight, so he has told me that since two of the
current challenger champions share this stable with me, and since all but one of the
others have gone inactive pending the tourney, I am to challenge Jehlch.
     Best of luck to those attending the tourney.  May you represent Lapur well and
heap victory and honor upon our shining city!

Your Duelmaster, Gilean Yasur

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LAPUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, CLUBS 'N CLONES, since MID 
EARTH took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  MID EARTH turned 
their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
PRIORE win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ULPHOR beat HARDWOOD and 
HARDWOOD lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  GILEAN YASUR challenged JEHLCH 
for LAPUR's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And it's out with the old, in 
with the new, as JEHLCH takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  LAPUR, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
STREET WALKERS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
it looks like MID EARTH avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  SULU was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now here's guts and 
stupidity all rolled into one, ARYLYN challenged up 32 to take on DR. STRANGELEAF of 
BLUNT FORCE.  And sure, ARYLYN lost alright, but gained 5 recognition for hers pains. 
And pains they may indeed be!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in LAPUR to get a drink than The Burning Tree!  
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this 
winter-- Snide Clemens

Aye!  This'n bea workin' fine.  Me fights onny one warrior, ole Platinum Punch, 'n me

Oremaster

Gilean Yassur champeen!  Gratters!  Aye. -- Oremaster

Pappadeaux -- Bend over, here it comes again.  Har, har, har! -- Platinum Punch

Spartacus -- Son, nice'n Dark Arena kill.  Ya oughtta be prod!  Aye. -- Oremaster

Manager hunks and friends -- I am sorry to miss you this round.  I will be back after
I get my hair fixed and a luscious manicure.  Getting ready for my Bermuda trip while
old Oremaster goes to dusty Milwaukee and The Face.  See ya, Hons! -- Ora (looking
forward to a fine tan and a little speedo hunk watchin')

Look for Mincer fighting back after The Face.  Personals, however, are likely all the
time. -- The Metal Mincer Publicist

Grassfire -- If me pour me ale on ye would ye grass grow?  Me be pretty sure ye fire
won't.  But me buy ye O drink if ye want.  How ye use it be up ta ye. -- Pub
O'connor.

YYTTRIA -- Ye killed Batton!  Granted the lad was lackin in O' lot O places but he
dannae deserved ta be terminated!  Me thinks ye put mithril in ye armor ye cheat!  He
had ye whooped and me do mean whooped! -- Owsly (looking at Demonspawn suspiciously.)

In honor of Batton he be 15-10-9-13-9-11-17 with and adv. xpert in Attack.
Unfortunately for the lad he learned slowly and poorly 1-2 skills per fight with
quite a few skips that outnumbered the rare times he got more than 2 learns.  He
dannae like ta be hit so it seemed ta me anytime it happened he quit fighting and
yelled uncle.  But the boy had charisma so me couldnae send him ta the dark place. --
Owsly

Saryn -- Me thinkin you feelin lucky taday huh laddie?  Of all the fighters ye could
be matched against you got the guy with the least experience and the lowest FE.  How
nice it must feel ta sit back, relax and have an easy fight for O' change.  It woulda
been nice if ye would learn how ta teach with all O that glorious experience ye got!
-- Kicker (wondering sometimes who comes up with the matches)

Aryln -- How ye feelin?  Me thought me had best be lookin after ye after ye went ta
the infirmary and almost died! -- Pub O'connor
P.S.  Saryn could stand ta learn some teachin skills from ye!  Mayhap you could show
him a thing or two?

What be this crazy replacement ye RUGS sent me!  It looks like something them borgs
threw tagether and tossed inta the dumpster!  How did me end up with it?!?  Dat gum
dumpster divers! -- Owsly (sends whatever it is off in disguise to be assimilated by
Ora and Oremaster)

Pub O'Connor -- Was that a scimitar or a greatsword???  My head still hurts! --
Arylyn

Ghost of Batton Ms'Kelley -- I had no intention to kill you, but you awoke something
in me when you hit me.  And, your manager must have sourced the worst scalemail ever
made for me to have done that sort of damage with just a few body blows. -- Yyttria

Sorry no personals today, really short on time. -- Jorja
