                             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!

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This, my friends, is my final farewell to you as Duelmaster of this historic
city.  I'm looking forward to a long career in ADM and hopefully one good bust out,
as Marma Duke has meticulously set me up for a promising ADM run in the future.

Here is a look under my tail for those who are curious:
9(1)-17(1)-11-18(1)-21-4-8(1)
+2 Init/Def/Dec  2.6 skills/FE
Current skills 29/15/20/6/19/24
Very High/Mod, Dodge tactic, SH (blech-- looks like I'll be sticking with the SS
until my stats let me use the LO without penalty)

     It's late, and I need my doggy sleep... the Dark Arena got my challenge since
I'm taking pity on poor Wrolling Thunder.  He always wears red, and I keep confusing
him with a firehydrant... poor thing!
     Hopefully another dawg can take my place on the throne next turn! 

Until next time,
     Same doggy time,
          Same doggy place,
               Same doggy channel,

Your Duelmaster,
Firehydrant Defiler

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  KATI-TEI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for JACK 
DANIELS?  I C DRUNK PEOPLE's proud of him after beating TWYSTED TWYSTER and getting 
21 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  TWYSTED TWYSTER's match with JACK DANIELS 
cost him a loss of 13 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's 
Number One!  ARENAMASTER JAILON knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the 
Duelmaster.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER JAILON killed the 
Duelmaster, FIREHYDRANT DEFILER, leaving DA DOG POWNDAZ in mourning.  ENGLISH BULLDOG 
gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean people might try to kill him, too?  
Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  THE PLAGUE 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 400-355-24 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What 
kind of warriors are DA DOG POWNDAZ?  THE PLAGUE, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is GRIMM LURCHER popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of KATI-TEI!  He's got a 22-25-0, is that 
good?  See if I ever talk to ENGLISH BULLDOG again!  GRIMM LURCHER was so low when He 
challenged he.  Hhmph!  ENGLISH BULLDOG beat GRIMM LURCHER.  No surprise about that.  
Really I'm not surprised ENGLISH BULLDOG would do such a scummy thing, either.  OLD 
YELLER is being unfair.  He's challenged down 23 against TORE NAYDO.  I don't know 
why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) I was sorry to see such an 
unfair "fight" in KATI-TEI.  OLD YELLER got 6 points after beating TORE NAYDO, 23 
points below him.   
     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.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
