                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Who can go 14-0 in the arena, earn the title of Lord Protector, and have a TV
under his belt?  Observe perfection at its very best.  Here I am.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to XOCHITHLAN once again!  What's with AKRAM AL' ABBAS?  He 
actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY's WENDAL XOKI, and walked away with 26 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at THE MIDDLE WAY while they watched OPARA PERSI clobber 
KARIDA NAHID.  She lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands. 
Try as he might, MAELSTROM FURY wasn't good enough at persuading SKULK to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  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, OPHIDIAN ORDER!  The 
bums at CHEAP SHOTS couldn't face the challenges from OPHIDIAN ORDER!  No excuse for 
that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, BELLE COR!  
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.  WENDAL XOKI of THE MIDDLE WAY didn't know when to 
quit.  When you've got a 6-7-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  AKRAM AL' ABBAS 
of THE MYRMIDON has spared WENDAL XOKI from the boredom of a warrior's retirement...  
But I doubt THE MIDDLE WAY is grateful.  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.  
XOCHITHLAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

We apologize to all Xochithlan for our inadequacies last turn.  A 4-1-0 was simply
insufficient. -- Cheap Shot Management

I'm bad!  I suck!  I lost!  Mori Web took it to me.  I might get fired! -- Ignore

You absolutely do suck, Ignore.  We cannot make rate with a dufus like you.  Quit! --
Skulk, Chuckle, Smirk, Eye Raise - Winners all

Perhaps Skulk is not so "perfect" as he implies.  That was a TC under his belt,
rather than a mere TV, although he has one of those also. -- Cheap Shot Management
(the real reason for Skulk's success)

Well, everybody tells me I don't have to write a personal for my fight with Ignore,
BUT I won, so I get to gloat, right?  Especially since gloating is really a cheap
shot all by itself. -- Mori Neb
P.S.  Besides, we ALSO have a guild rule that reads "All warriors must write
personals every time they fight, unless they have secured a special exemption."  And
since I didn't happen to secure a "special exemption," well....  But you note that it
doesn't say I have to write a personal TO MY OPPONENT, so I think I'm covered both
P.P.S.  Besides, as neutered orc, Ignore DESERVES to be ignored.

Smirk -- Well, I expect you to write a really annoying duel2dude's column, so get to
it, buster. -- Quia Rayne

Chuckle -- How you can still have the BREATH to chuckle after six minutes boggles the
mind, although you did pretty much just stand around. -- Belle Cor

The Rirorni Horseman brought his HORSE into the arena and tried to ride me down!
Like I'm going to be THAT easy?  Ha!  I hamstrung the horse, it was a fairly
worthless-looking nag anyway, and then I GOT him.  The man.  Because while the horse,
without the man, was still a horse (and the Infirmarian promised to fix it "good as
new"), without the horse, the rider was just a man, and I know how to DEAL with men.
-- Opara Persi

Eye Raise -- So raise 'em, see if I care.  Just call me "cold shoulder," buster. --
Wendal Xoki

Huh, we see that one of the Cheap Shots is going to "Skulk" off to the Isle and
Crysalis after this turn.  Good riddance! -- everybody at the Middle Way

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

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
