                             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.

     Greeting, my fellow turfwarites.  It's so good to be coming to you from the
throne yet again.   While I'm not an advocate of downchallenging, except in a
Bloodfeud, the rules of this turf war are set up such that it doesn't make sense for
me not to be handling the team's bloodfeud yet again this turn.  So unless that
bloodthirsty init chooses to sit out the turn, I suspect I will be back here again
next month.
     Saw a lot of you in the land of beer and cheese this summer.  Congrats to Salad
Slayer who looked to be the arena's only Victor.  I was proud of my 6-3 showing in my
first Challenger's tourney, definitely underskilled compared to my peers at that
level, but I suspect I will not be around to try again in October.  Only a couple of
more turns left in the Turf War.  Will anyone be able to overcome the Commp Squad
lead?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TEMPLE OF ABARSIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, ROYAL FLUSH, since 
LAND OF OZ took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  With any luck, I 
can sneak into The Swinging Aardvark and join BLACK LIGHTNING's celebration over 
their good record this turn.  4th place, not bad.  If The Swinging Aardvark is buying 
drinks for DEVIATION's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 
4-1-0 makes for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can sneak into The Swinging Aardvark 
and join STRANGE BREW's celebration over their good record this turn.  8th place, not 
bad.  If The Swinging Aardvark is buying drinks for OBSIDIAN ORDER's good turn, I'm 
afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 3-2-0 makes for a big thirst.  Oh, this 
is too good to be true!  IN QETERNUM has fallen to 21st place after going 2-3-0 this 
turn.  Who's bragging now?  Why not, I'm having a good day, so I feel sorry for CALM 
AND SEDATE, who went 1-4-0 and dropped 13 into 24th.  Here's my pity, for what it's 
worth.  With any luck, I can sneak into The Swinging Aardvark and join NEW 
VENGEANCE's celebration over their good record this turn.  25th place, not bad.  Look 
out below!  DARQUE FORCES is on the way down, falling to 26th from 9th with a 0-5-0!  
Ha ha ha ha!  If The Swinging Aardvark is buying drinks for BLOOD MAGIC's good turn, 
I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 2-3-0 makes for a big thirst.  Now 
let's all watch THE MIDDLE WAY 3's heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha 
ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
SALAD SLAYER win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ASYLUM beat 
MISSISSIPPI QUEEN and MISSISSIPPI QUEEN lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
ACE OF BASE Bloodfeuded TACTIS AEGER for TEMPLE OF ABARSIS' Title this turn, and 
guess what happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, TEMPLE OF ABARSIS may be 
getting bland, as ACE OF BASE stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  ALASKAN PIPELINE was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was LAND OF OZ.  Ha ha ha ha!  TACTIS 
AEGER was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, LORAZEPAM was 
challenged by RAVAGE, who was ranked 27 points below him.  Well, ok, the upstart 
knave (where've I heard that before?) won this match and gained 27 points to boot!  
Ha ha ha, LORAZEPAM.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Gee, OBSIDIAN ORDER, ain't it past due for sending 
GORGON Dark Arena?  What took ol' '6-8-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Not that 
I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see KISS OF DEATH and DEVIATION at The 
Swinging Aardvark tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over LATKA.  A big 
yahoo goes out to BROOMSTICK this turn, for revenging LAND OF OZ's bloodfeud against 
AGGRESSIVE MEDIOCRE's warrior MADFREEZE.  Heh, heh, heh.  Titanium shields and bamboo 
daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the TEMPLE OF ABARSIS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just 
as comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

Hard times!  If we are not slaughtered during the tourney, things can only improve
now... -- Le Pentarque

Way to go, Crip!  Another Duelmaster crown for Royal Flush and COMMP Squad.  Yu da
man! -- Oz The All praising

Gizmo -- Thanks for the challenge and the win.  Now you know what can be done with a
broomstick. -- Broomstick

Barley!  Thanks for coming back at the right time.  That win hit the spot. -- Basket

Eureka Pride -- You are so very, very tough, so I felt especially proud of that win.
(And the train as pretty nice, too!) -- Quadling

Chief Ill -- I cannot believe you allowed Madfreeze to do that!  The poor Huck is
dead just because he challenged your bloodthirst!  You Munchkin!  Huck was a 
12-5-12-15-17-16-7 +4 Att slasher and I liked him.  You Cretin.  I will make you walk
The Yellow Brick Road!  Twice! -- Oz The All Furious

Not our best round COMMPers, but a solid one.  I hope this message finds us after a
fine, scoring Face.  Good luck! -- Oz The All Hopeful

Chief Ill Neck -- In case I did not get my message across, I hope the bluebird of
happiness flies up any of your open orifices and takes a dump! -- Oz The Still All
Furious

That dirty rotten Master Darque killed my wonderful warrior, Off To See The..., in
The Face.  Oh, he was sneaky.  Instead of doing it with a TW warrior, he sneaked his
sandbagged godling from Ardivent in the back door and unexpectantly assassinated the
Ozzer.  MD will rue the day he dumped -5 points, instead of +3, on COMMP Squad.  The
Booger gulper!  Off To See was a 13(+1)-9-10-17-9-10-17 hosed dmg striker.  So there!
-- Oz The All Riled

Alaskan Pipeline -- Stuff that in your pipeline. -- Elephant, the unrepentant

In Qeternum -- Not fair, I know, but, I'm just following suit.  Have to stay in the
game. -- Inanna

Liam the Goth -- I too am in HW 863.  I am KESH.  Feel free to contact me or perhaps
we could exchange correspondance.  Good to see others in the area represented there.
-- Skaven

All -- Gorgon had a rendevous with destiny.  He will fight beneath the stars.  May
the gods have mercy on his soul. -- Skaven

     Bwa-ha-ha! -- The Gods

Roll-up God -- I have sacrificed a warrior, 1000 cattle, gems and gold.  Perhaps this
will appease you to no longer send those great warriors with the 3 wits.  With
reverence... -- Skaven

     We'll see. -- RUG #76753

So on a turn in which all three of my bashers win, both my non-bashers lose. -- Assur

Oz the Prophet -- I could only laugh after Off to See The... was slain in the tourney
after predicting his own death. -- Assurnasirbanipal

Scott -- Apparently I do better against scum when I don't prepare. -- Boob

Kana Ballistic -- I guess I'm just a bit more explosive than you. -- TNT

South Spoon -- Rough matchup for you.  But I desperately needed that win. -- Racecar

Nin Quire -- Always a pleasure. -- The Palindrome Bashers

Eureka Pride -- An apt description.  Different cars for different purposes.  I'm
definitely a straightaway kind of guy. -- Racecar

All -- Don Guido is expanding his empire to DM 81 under Deus Ex Machina.  Hope to see
some of you there. -- mgr. Beatnik Horde

     Good luck and good dueling.

Blizzard -- The god of luck favored you this time my friend. -- Thadius Bantu

Gencon -- A well fought battle, yet I believe I have detected a weakness. *grin*. --
Poro Choro

Mississippi Queen -- Okay, I guess I deserved that. -- Billy Bart

Krait -- I bit off more than I could chew... and choked! -- Roddy Pipetl

?? -- Duh!  I missed the fight. -- Miracle

Ace Of Base -- Congrats on the throne.  Now that the pleasantries are out of the way,
you Royal Flush guys are a real pain in the butt....  Have a great day! -- Pawn of
Prophecy

Juneau Dawning -- I should have known better. -- Mandorallen

Latka -- What?  Where?  When?  Who did that?  Where am I?  I have such a headache!!!
-- Chabat

Percheron -- That is the way we do it where I come from. -- Mr. Wolf

Big Mac -- I like the two all beef patties, but all that special sauce, lettuce,
cheese, pickles and onions I can do with out... well the cheese is okay... you're a
good little snack. -- Zith

Sloppy Joe -- I knew I should have gone with the Big Mac. -- Javelin

Party Trap -- We try and kill each other every month for little to no pay and the
only way to get out is to survive long enough to get to graduation or die... and you
wonder why I make little sense? -- Chabat

Poro Choro -- I might take you up on that. -- Javelin

Thorazine -- You seemed neither calm nor sedate, sure you're on the right team? --
Dartanyon

Diazepam -- You rarely see two warriors using that weapon in a fight.  We should do
that again if the learning is going to be like that. -- Endemic

Poro Choro -- Well that's one for the good guys.  Don't take it personally, I never
liked The 100 anyways, those wimpy aimers make me sick.  With their wit this and
their deftness that, whatever happened to swinging around a nice big halberd or maul?
Daggers and open hand, seesh. -- Gencon

Seward Folly - That was a pleasant surprise. - Rusty

Emily -- That was pretty neat, too bad my you used me as your carving dummy.  You
must do a mean turkey at thanksgiving. -- Bleep

Late, but finally present:

Judgment Day -- Well, that's managers for you.  Always critical. -- Nin Quire

Michael Eldritch -- The only years were finding around here lately are the Years of
the Fleas.  Major attack on the area. -- Jorja

Basket -- Not my most-fun fight ever. -- Nin Quire

Whopper -- I KNEW I should've told 'em to hold the onions on that. -- Velma Xavil

Carlos -- Ah!  My kind of fight. -- Tulain Vorl

Rusty -- Well, maybe you could work on that?  Steel wool, and then a light oil. --
Tia Relwan

Our congratulations to Smokey Bear, though I would recommend staying in Capitan. --
Jorja and the Middle Way
P.S.  Less crowded.

Hey, I just said they'd be "present," I didn't promise "witty." -- Jorja

Current personals, also not guaranteed witty:

Basket -- More like trying to carry water in a (loosely woven) basket. -- Nin Quire

Skaven -- A whiff of vanilla behind the ears. -- Jorja and Nin Quire
P.S.  Actually, I believe the long-term popularity leadership goes to a gladiator who
can be counted on to give a good show, win or lose, and who hangs around long enough
to develop fans.  Or something like that.

Rusty -- Probably. -- Tia Relwan

Carlos -- That's when it started being fun for ME. -- Tulain Vorl

Party Trap -- I suspected that party would be a mistake, but I did so enjoy
myself.... -- Nin Quire

Starscream -- You were LOUD. -- Tia Relwan

Quickspawn -- That's what we're working on.  The fleas are trying to pull a "quick
spawn," and we're trying for a "quick die-off." -- Velma Xavil

Pint -- But it was a very good pint.  Got any more? -- Tulain Vorl

13 July 11
                                   Announcing!

          The No-Tourney ADM arena will be opening for business on the
          first of August of this year!
     It will be ADM Arena #107, making use of that idle installation down at Lirin
Kiv.  If the managers involved in this arena wish to rename it, suggestions will be
entertained through the months of August and September.

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
