                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Rintirisse, you were always a good competitor and I always enjoyed a matchup
with you.  But you should have stayed home because no one can match my skills when I
am in a rage.  Truth beknowest, I was on a windbag's path and he gave me the slip,
and a 10 kill desire put me into the rage.  I am sorry, but after all, I am....

                                   The Mongol

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for KOBALT, who flew 
up 14 points in the rankings after mashing TEMPEST like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  TEMPEST was 
defeated by KOBALT and drops 11 points.  It's a proud day for the STORM BRINGERS 
stable, as their warrior, PITT, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 
gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid STORM BRINGERS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does NIATOLI ISLAND really have 
that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch RAVAGING LORDS' act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from STORM BRINGERS.  Well 
just about everybody wants a piece of TALON STORM, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.  MONOLYTH of RAVAGING LORDS had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 14 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought MONOLYTH showed 
great skill and promise when he bested TALON STORM.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!

Players of Duel 2:

RSI wants to try, in a few arenas, a system that rewards role-play and general arena
involvement.  Our thoughts at this time are as follows, and feedback is earnestly

1.  What to reward.
a.  Spotlights--they don't have to be involved and lengthy storylines, and in fact,
my own inclination is to say: anything game related and original (i,e,, not a
reprint), maybe set a minimum length.  I use TOGS here as my model--half a column as
formatted for the newsletter, and we don't judge the quality of the writing (so long
as the editor isn't grossed out), just the intent to make a positive contribution.
b.  A dm column where one is "due."  Again, no judgment on quality of writing, should
be dm-related, and I would say (this is just me) a minimum length of maybe five
c.  Personals.  More than just "you suck," or "good fight."  How much more doesn't
really concern me, and quality, other than "not offensive to the editor," should not
be an issue.  We don't want to encourage participation and then muzzle it.
d.  It has been suggested that a reward point or two be offered for running a full
team.  We could include this, but my own inclination would be to say that there would
be no points for this, but that those who don't make a clear effort on this
(accidents happen, so maybe something like "when the three-turn total of fights is
below twelve"?) aren't eligible for points on any turn until they get it back up to a
full team.

2.  How to reward it.
a.  We've been thinking nebulously about some kind of point system, obviously, as an
example, say 3 points for a spotlight, 2 for a column, 1 for personals, more points
here for what takes more effort, but some points for any effort.  This is in no way
final!  But some way to keep track of who is contributing and how much, and as non-
subjective as possible; this would be noted as each newsletter would be proofed.  A
way to clearly identify who's sending in what would help, but I can work it out by
referring to the warrior listings if I have to.
b.  But, assuming a point system, do the rewards, whatever they end up being, go to
the player who achieves a certain point total?  Is this calculated per turn, or as a
running total over as many turns as it takes to reach that point?  Or to the player
with the highest total on any given turn?  What about ties?
c.  What do the points get the player?  The current thought is X points gets a free
fight, probably replacing the "Popularity Leader's" free fight in the relevant arena.
That suggests only one player getting a role-play free fight on any given turn.  Is
this enough to encourage the newsletter participation we're hoping for?  Should we
convert "This Week's Favorite" to a role-play free fight also?  Or handle rewards in
some other way entirely?

3.  Where it happens.
The current thought is, try it in four arenas:  one in each region, and one slow
arena.  Who picks the arenas in question?  I'd be inclined to rule out those that are
doing fairly well already (Ardivent, Sunset, Lapur; Arkers, Morya, North Fork), but
is that wise?  Or even fair?  Darned if I know.  Places where it is NOT currently
intended to happen:  Transfer arenas.  Maybe rule out the no-tourney arenas as
current candidates, too?

If this seems to work well enough to be worth the effort, should we consider
extending it to more, eventually to all non-transfer, arenas?

This is not a "someday down the line we might" concept.  We want to do this, and
SOON.  Your feedback would be appreciated, for, against, changes, anything.  You can
email me directly at jputney zianet com (make sure it says DM in the subject line) or
send a diplo to scribe, any arena.

the Scribe

P.S.  Staff members not to be eligible for role-playing free fights.

The Battle Royal V is upon us!  Come join one of the original contests that has had
some of the games best managers involved in the past.  DM 18, Talcama, some consider
it to be the crown jewel of the Delarq cities is where this contest will take place.

The Battle Royal is intended to be a play as you want, play what you want Delarquan
style contest with very few rules.  While I'd love to say, "NO AVOIDING" is the only
rule (and that wouldn't be too far off), I must spell out situations that can and
have occurred and require additional clarification.

The advantages of this format:
1) Simple.
2) No penalty for DAs.
3) No restrictions on warriors entered into the contest (baggers, TC mods, etc all
4) No penalty for not fighting. 
5) It isn't a race where 21 wit and favorite learn determine the victor.
6) Losing a warrior (or even your whole team) doesn't eliminate you from contention.
7) It is possible to overcome almost any deficit.  And this has been proven, with
   managers making huge point swings in short periods of time!
8) It is a contest designed to show manager skill rather than warrior ability.

There are a few disadvantages:
1) There is no set end.  It is possible for this contest to go on indefinitely.  In
   practice, this format has worked very nicely in the past and I expect it will
   continue to work well. 
2) You cannot avoid (But that is part of the fun and the head to head nature of this
   contest requires this rule.)
3) It encourages bloodshed.
4) Baggers and experienced warriors have an advantage over new warriors.

Battle Royal Rules:

- Any team in Talcama is eligible to participate.  There are no restrictions on
warriors (baggers, TC prize modified, etc).  However, any warrior that fights for
your team is considered in the BR.

- Teams may not avoid any other team within the contest.  (Note that you may avoid
teams outside the contest but you do so at your own risk.)  Avoiding a team on the
turn they enter the Battle Royal is not considered against the rules (since you
couldn't know the team wasn't part of the BR).  The suggestion is not to avoid at
all.  Assur (the contest moderator) gets an avoid report every turn and will catch
people avoiding!

- Managers may only enter a single team in the contest.

- Any manager with more than one team in Talcama may not challenge any other contest
warrior with their non contest team(s).  The intention is that no advantage can be
gained by having multiple teams in the arena.

****Failure to comply with the above rules***
1st offense: Disqualification from the prize, but you may still participate.
2nd offense: Warning.
3rd offense: Removal from Battle Royal.

- If a manager decides to switch teams, his score will start back at 0.  This is to
prevent a manager from sweeping the contest with several teams of sandbaggers.  Can a
manager use this clause to go from a negative score to zero?  Yes.  I realize this is
sort of cheating, but I'd rather have a manager start over with a new team than drop
out of the contest.  Even so, they have to start at 0 and must gain 25 points.

- If your warrior loses a contest fight because of an input error and this error is
verified by RSI, you will have a point added to your score.  The head to head records
will remain the same and any points gained by another manager will remain on that
manager's record.

- As soon as you are announced in the newsletter, you are officially entered into the
Battle Royal.  Scoring begins on that turn!  You are expected to follow the rules
that turn and every turn following.  Your team may enter any time they wish during
the course of the Battle Royal.

- If you are exiting the Battle Royal, you are not removed until the turn after your
intention is published.  You are asked to follow the rules for that turn (either
through not avoiding or not running your warriors).

- Scoring begins the turn your team declares participation.
- Scoring continues through the turn your team withdraws.
- Score is calculated by: Wins+Kills-Lossses.
- Only fights with other B.R. participannts count towards your score, but they count
  whether they are challenges or random match-ups.
- First Manager to 25 points wins!
- In event of tie, B.R. continues until one team that has reached 25 points is ahead
  of all other participants.

- The attempt has been made to make these rules as complete and bulletproof as
possible, but Tripwire will resolve any disputes as fairly as he is capable.

For the Winner:

6 Months Free Play in Talcama for the winning team (doesn't include tourneys)!

One +1 Bonus Potion (up to max for warrior, to be used on a warrior in DM 18)!

One Limited Damage Bump Potion (one time use, up to max for stats, used on DM 18

One Minor Stat Switch Prize (up to 2 points can be moved from one stat to another
stat on a new rollup in DM 18, before adding 14 points.  This prize can be used up to
3 months from the contest end.  Both points must be used in the same place (can't
take one from a speed and one from deftness and add one to wit and will)).

One Favorites Knowledge Potion (to be used on a 5+ FE warrior in DM 18).

Rename One Dark Arena Creature in DM 18, which will be renamed for 6 Months or until
the Ladies decide to return it to the previous name.

All potions renaming prizes must be used within 2 turns of the end of the contest.

Endurance Award (available to all participants):

One +1 Bonus Potion (up to max for warrior, to be used on a warrior in DM 18).

To qualify for the Endurance Award you must participate in 90% of the total fights
possible over the course of the BR.  If you don't have time to make it into the BR by
the first turn, there will be a two turn window before the counter will start for new
teams.  The fights do not have to be BR point scoring fights, just 90% of the total
possible participation over the course of the contest!  So, if the contest runs 26
turns, there are 130 fights possible. Your team must have 117 fights during those 26
turns to be eligible.

All prizes/potions subject to RSI's interpretation of how they are used/implemented.
