                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, we think it is now official, we are the worst Duelmasters this place has
even seen.   'Nuff said.

Bert & Ernie
Open Sesame
Duelmaster of Snowbound
But no one is sure how we did it!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for SNOWBOUND.  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 3-0-0.  Keep it up, PUBLIC ENEMY!  I 
talked to MEN OF ILL-REPUTE2's manager before the fights.  He said, "We're gonna do 
good."  And look at this:  4-1-1!  Psychic, or what!  MVP award for SLACK-JAWED ROY?  
MEN OF ILL-REPUTE2's proud of him after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 21 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  C IS FOR COOKIE's match with ZURISDAY cost him 
a loss of 14 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome KINGU.  Aren't MESOPOTAMIA proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the 
wiseguy that said SNOWBOUND's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern? 
Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of PUBLIC ENEMY must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are OPEN SESAME?  PUBLIC ENEMY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is GARUTH HOLM popular, or what?  He 
was challenged the most in all of SNOWBOUND!  He's got a 17-17-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bummer deal for BOOKS!  It just 
barely was getting its "fighter feet" but got kill by CRUSHING BELIAL of MESOPOTAMIA! 
Those're the breaks, I guess.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be 
out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  SNOWBOUND is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

SLAUGHTER CHALLENGE 2

Several years ago I ran a contest known as the "Slaughter Challenge" which was the
idea of a member of my alliance at the time.  We unfortunately lost him during a
robbery attempt at the store he worked at.  This November will mark the 10th
anniversary of his passing so I have decided to run the Slaughter Challenge again in
remembrance of him.

Rich Hammes was a member of my alliance, the Vendetta Cartel, and had sponsored me
into the alliance.  Rich was a common poster to both the Yahoo Duelmasters group as
well as the Duel2 boards and our Alliance's Yahoo group.  He went by the handle
GameOgre on the Duel2 boards and was known by the name Abarsis, the Slaughter Priest.
He was a very kind and thoughtful man who always had time to talk with not only his
alliance-mates but anyone else who wanted to discuss Duelmasters.  He also had time
to talk with anyone about personal life issues if he felt he could help.  He was a
daily, and prolific, poster to these sites and seemed to enjoy the interaction with
others regarding this game that he loved so much.

I would also like everyone to know that he spent several years in the US Navy serving
on a Nuclear attack Submarine in protection of our nation.  He was well loved, and
well known, by the community in which he lived even spending time at a local Ice
Cream Shop around closing time to assure that the lady who owned the store was safe
as she was often alone when she closed her shop.  He was a well known and much loved
member of his local community.  His death was grieved by his local San Diego
community where they held a candle-light vigil for him and many expressed their
disbelief that he was gone.  These are just a scant few examples of what a kind and
caring man he was and why not only our gaming community lost a great deal on that
fateful day, but also shows why there was tremendous sadness among the community in
which he lived.

It is near to 10 years since his passing and there are many times I wonder, "What
would Rich think about this...."  I miss my friend dearly to this day and I hope you

will come join us in this contest idea which he himself came up with.  He thought we
should all learn to appreciate what Jorja does to keep our smaller arenas alive and
populated!

The contest will be held in Morya, arena 28, beginning on the turn that is due on
November 6th, 2014 (turn 378 I believe).  Tourney participation is not allowed during
the contest but the contest will start after the fall Mailer so you can get your
warriors a few fight experience should you choose to.  The timing of the contest was
done to allow entry into the fall mailer.

The rules are fairly simple and inspired to let us all feel what it is like to run
warriors like Jorja does.  Her teams across Alastari may sometimes be taken for
granted so this contest will allow us to appreciate her teams a little better as they
populate the arenas we fight in.

The Rules--

There are no challenges, avoids, bloodfeuds, or tourneys allowed and only one single
use of the Dark Arena is allowed after the contest begins.  Win or lose the Dark
Arena is allowed but once, so if you want your warrior dead be sure and throw the
fight!

The contest will last for 12 turns.  May I point out that if you use your Dark Arena
fight you will get either 2 points, for winning, or -2, for losing, and ALL fights
count in the scoring.  It matters not if you fight a non-contest warrior or a stand-
in; they still count as much as fighting a contest warrior.  This will be a test of
basic strategy with a touch of luck added in as well.

If anyone should break the no tourney rule they will lose 5 points for each warrior
entered and those warriors, and any subsequent warriors who replace them in death,
cannot score points!  The one exception are the dead tourneys.  Should you wish you
may enter your warriors in dead tourneys, since they are not a member of your team,
or even the living, at the time.  The warrior may even return to the contest if a
natural opening can be found for it, or you choose to use your Dark Arena fight to
make that opening (if you still have that option left).  Break the no DA, challenge,
or avoid rules and you will be DQed as soon as the transgression is discovered.  To
keep the contest playing field as level as possible, we will have no messing with
these rules.  Of course you may DA the one time, just as a clarification, but the
second time gets you DQed.  This also counts if it is found you bring a second team
in for the purpose of making challenges; you will be DQed.

Scoring is as follows:

1 point for winning
1 point for killing (giving 2 in total, 1 for the win and 1 for the kill)
1 point for at least one of your warriors writing a personal (regardless of number of
  personals beyond one you still only get one point).  Make sure it is written from
  one of your team's warriors and not simply the manager entity or you will not get
  the point.
-1 point for losing
-1 point for being killed (giving -2 in total, -1 for losing and -1 for being killed)
-5 points and the loss of that warrior's slot for scoring the remainder of the
  contest for entering a warrior into a REGULAR tourney (again DEAD tourney is open)

The Prizes:
1st place -- +1 bonus to one warrior on the team, 1 resurrection potion, and 1
  favorite knowledge
2nd place -- +1 bonus for one warrior, 1 favorites knowledge
3rd place -- +1 bonus for one warrior

Iron Manager Award -- Run 54 of the possible 60 fights and get a +1 bonus potion

The bonus potions and favorites knowledge must be used on warriors with 5 FE or more
and MUST be used within 2 turns of the end of the contest.  The resurrection potion
must be used within 6 months of the end of the contest but may be used on any warrior
regardless of FE.  ALL prizes must be used on the contest team, they are NOT
transferable to another team!

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $149.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI.

Please make your reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

Look for the tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope 
you're all looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
