                             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

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

   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!

     I made it!  I made it!  I really, really did!  No more fighting.  No more life
and death pressure.  No more dirty, sandy, bloody arenas.  No more Red Sands.  I am a
Lord Protectress!
     I am off to the beaches.  Real sand.  No blood.  Pretty sunrises and sunsets.
Lovely seashells.  Oiled bikini and jockstrap bodies.  (Or less.  I WILL take less!)
I will make a great Lord protector of the beach for Lady Sheila.  Rest.  Relaxation.
Fun in the sand.  Maybe some long, entangling tussles, but not of the arena fighting
kind.  (wink)
     I have been hoping and preparing for this moment, so I want to share with you my
bikini-ready body.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARDIVENT this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, W. D. PURDY fought MARCI 
FOOTE and gained 24 points and contributed to FANDILS' 4-1-0.  MARCI FOOTE has lost 
to W. D. PURDY, falling 18 points, while helping make BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 2-3-0 
turn.  And not without some honor, KATERINA COLLIN now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of ARDIVENT.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Seaside Manor until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  SERPENT'S HOLD has cause to stand tall, as they were 
ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding SERPENT'S HOLD more than any other team we find FANDILS.  ARDIVENT, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, farewell-- Alarond the

Hey, way to go, Fandils!  It has been a while since a 4-0.  Well done team.  And I am
soooooo proud of Yvonne reaching Lord Protectorship.  Kudos! -- Fandil The Wise
(feelin' kinda proud in his old age)

Coral -- Tsk, tsk.  Another minute or two and I would have had that snakeskin belt I
covet.  Oh, well; maybe next time, Hon.  (wink) -- Mildred Leona

Katerina Collin -- You propelled me to Lord Protectorship.  Thank you.  Thank you! --

Long Biggar -- I prayed and prayed and the gods sent me the luck I asked.  I am
"long" on luck! -- Monsignor Mark

Lila Deane -- Thanks for the dance, it was pure fun. -- Earl

Mollie Scott -- "Acknowledge me"?  Well sure.  Light me a candle or something. --
Monsignor Mark

Jorja -- That Kennelworth! He has a way of getting involved in every arena, doesn't
he?  He sends his thanks for correcting his old-age (Or is it Age-old?) who-knows-
where-he-sends-personals problems. -- WOF

Thank you everyone for your patience in teaching me and putting up with me.  I would
not have become a Lord protector without you! -- Yvonne

Our congratulations to Yvonne. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Scales -- Moisturizer is the key. -- Mollie Scot

Yvonne -- Good for you, girl! -- Katerina Collin
P.S.  The graduation bit.  You didn't really need the win.  You could have let ME
have the win.

Earl -- It's too hot for that stuff. -- Lila Deane

Mongsignor Mark -- What?  What did *I* do? -- Long Biggar

Sometimes I get *tired* of these merchants who go around making a big thing about
their honesty.  You gotta wonder about guys like that. -- Marci Foote
