                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ernest Dervishian, I salute you as a brave and bold gladiator, but...not quite
up to my weight.  Yet.  And the time won't come, because I get to retire!  Gods, I've
waited and hoped for that.  I am OUT of here.

                                         Chock

P.S.  HALBERD?  You're KIDDING me!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for KATI-TEI.  Uncool, LANGUAGE OF LOVE.  I 
mean 0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  WONDERLAND like really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 6th.  Way to go! 
Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, WANDERERS!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and 
moved up to 2nd!  MVP award for VALGARD?  WANDERERS' proud of him after beating 
POLITE BEGGAR and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SKIN ZESTER's 
match with WHITE KNIGHT cost it a loss of 10 points!  Like, WHITE RABBIT must be 
pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from WANDERERS.  Does this guy have a 
death wish or what!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome WHITE RABBIT.  Aren't WONDERLAND proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear 
the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of FALL FROM GRACE must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
WONDERLAND's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from FALL 
FROM GRACE, that's fer sher.  Can WONDERLAND's THE WALRUS be more popular than me?  
He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

William Crawford -- Pushy dude, aren't you?  Of course, that IS your job.  Mine, too,
come to think of it.  But I just don't feel pushy today.  One of those imponderable
feelings, you know.  Maybe it's the blue sky, the leaves just beginning to change
colors, the second ear of corn on the cob, who can say? -- Quinore

Skin Zester -- (deeply offended glare)  I will thank you not to zest my skin again,
you...you GOLEM. -- Forandin

Gods, you call THAT a "trustworthy" scribe? -- Ghost of Velorbin

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
