     I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  (And if you paid a
visit to The Flower Shoppe, no doubt you did have a great season!)  The FTF is upon
us, and we Flower girls hope to see y'all there.  We will be working the crowd.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly FLORAL VALLEY games.  Former top team BLOOD AND GUTS! 
was unseated this week as SITTEES moved up from 8th ranking to take the top spot with 
a 5-0-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at ODIN'S CHOSEN's guildhouse 
after a 1-2-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 9th.  Dark Arena 
anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week SITTEES went 5-0-0 to move up 7 in the rankings.  A new guild, FIRE INC., 
entered FLORAL VALLEY with a clash this turn, showing off a 5-0-1 record.  Indeed, a 
worthy addition to the city guilds.  SPARK caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MALICE put down SEVERITY, 
causing him to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the 
fights this week, the spotlight was on PANDEMIC as she bore arms against the 
challenge of reigning Duelmaster INSOLENT IRIS.  Not for nothing has INSOLENT IRIS in 
the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers 
combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  FLORAL VALLEY, city of gladiators! 
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is DARK RAIDERS, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of BLOOD AND GUTS! last week.  Busy avoiding DARK RAIDERS?  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  PANDEMIC take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in FLORAL VALLEY.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of FYLGJA who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 
8 points below in the rankings.  I thought FYLGJA showed great skill and promise when 
she was bested by TEMPEST.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Look no more for KYKENSTIENBURG in the arena or on the streets of 
FLORAL VALLEY.  Its fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 13-6-2. 
Was I the only one shocked to see the well respected fighter KYKENSTIENBURG (13-6-2) 
appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  It is now dead.  Some say a warrior is judged 
by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on 
the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in FLORAL VALLEY.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the 
spires of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - 
the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp

still referring to all those wins where your warriors FE was nearly DOUBLE mine.
Enjoy those victories as they will be harder to come by in the future with our squads
being a little more evenly matched these days. -- Dark Knight Heathen Hatebred

Lady Fern -- My apologies for your loss, not sure what got into Byron.  He's usually
a nice guy to the ladies, he wasn't brought up that way.  Besides, I've always had a
thing for Lady Fern and wouldn't put a future date in jeopardy over a fight.  He will
be on the sands for your bloodfeud. -- Barnabas

Smothering Salvia -- The way you were gasping for breath I thought I did you a favor.
-- Byron

All -- Greetings all.  I am bringing my stable of Fire Inc. to your fine arena.  We
hope to stand shoulder to shoulder and blade to blade with all your fine warriors.
May death come to us all, but you first. -- Wretch, mgr. Fire Inc.

Dark Knights -- I have to deactivate here for the moment.  Call if I am needed and
the storm will roll in!  Make sure to inform me for the next QUEST.  That seemed so
cool; I am disappointed that I arrived too late to participate.  Next one, I'll be
there.  I remain active in 31 and 47. -- DK Blackstorm

ANNOUNCING THE NO-TOURNAMENT ARENA (81)

As an American I honor my cultural heritage by stealing any good idea.  This idea was
originally proposed by Lord Xiang in November 2005.  RSI will be opening the arena
(81) for teams willing to sign the following pledge:

*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this arena to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this arena.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena
1.  No tournament play for warriors in this arena (Dead tournament or otherwise).
2.  One team per manager.
3.  Teams start with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena.
5.  Twenty teams required, per RSI.
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead).
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

The main purpose of the Player Committee is to maintain fair play in the arena:
*  Warriors that participate in Tournaments will be sent to the Dark Arena until they
   are dead.  This means that the Player Committee has the power to send another
   player's warrior to the Dark Arena
*  Managers that abuse the rules of the Arena may be banned/transferred from the
   Arena.

The player with the most votes for Chairman will fill slot 1 [Chairperson] and that
term expires end of March 2007.
The player with the most votes overall will fill slot 5 and that term expires end of
November 2007.
The player with the second most votes overall will fill slot 4 and that term expires
end of September 2007.
The player with the third most votes overall will fill slot 3 and that term expires

end of November 2007.
The player with the fourth most votes overall will fill slot 2 and that term expires
end of May 2007.

During the month that the chairperson's term expires the Player Committee will select
one of the remaining 4 players to be the next chairperson.  During the month that any
member's term expires the arena will vote for a different player to join the Players'
Committee.

If you want to be a candidate for the player committee:
1.  Post a message in the Duel2 Forum at
    http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Forums
2.  E-Mail Deke at DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
3.  Send a Diplomatic Note to Doc LeGrand's Lab [ARENA 81]

There are 4 steps to joining this arena
1) Send in a new team rollup to RSI with the following pledge taped/stapled to the
rollup sheet, or transfer a ZERO FIGHT EQUIVALENT TEAM to Arena 81 and send RSI the
following form.

No-Tournament Arena (81)
*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

     RSI will be processing overviews for this arena as soon as you send them into
RSI.
     The first turn will run in January 2007.  This will be a normal speed arena.
     While I am encouraging everyone to use TEAM MAINTENANCE it is not mandatory.
The intent is that players that run turns will run a full team.  One warrior teams
are discouraged and will a topic for the Player Committee to resolve.
     I also encourage players to join the Duel2 Yahoo Group for faster updates and
feedback.  http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/duel/

     Deke Young will not be part of the inaugural Player Committee, maybe later once

     Any questions can be directed to DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
     I will track Awards in Arena 81, which will be posted on a web site and included
in the following turn's newsletter.

The Honor of Sunset Award:
     The first team to reach 10 Team Kills.  In the case that there is more than one
team that achieves 10 Team Kills on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most kills.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Kills, I will prolong
the contest until one team has the most Kills in the Arena (it does not have to be
one of the teams that first reached 10 Team Kills.)

The Race to Victory Award:
     The first team to reach 75 Team Wins.  In the case that there is more than one
team that reaches 75 Team wins on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most wins.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Wins, I will prolong the
contest until one team has the most wins in the Arena (it does not have to be one of
the teams that first reached 75 Team Wins.)

The Commitment to Change Award:
     The first team to reach 125 Team Fights.  In the case that there is more than
one team that reaches 125 Team Fights on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
team with the most fights.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Fights, I will
prolong the contest until one team has the most fights in the Arena (it does not have
to be one of the teams that first reached 125 Team Fights.)  I hope I never give out
this award {figure it out on your own.}

The Team Advancement Award:
     The first team to graduate 5 warriors to ADM.  In the case that there is more
than 1 team that graduates 5 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
first team to graduate 6 warriors.  In the case that there is more than 1 team that
graduates 6 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the first team to
graduate 7 warriors, and so on.

The Iron Throne Award:
     The first team to hold the Duelmaster for 10 turns STARTING ON TURN 11.

The Stylemaster Award.
     The first team to hold the Stylemaster Award in 7 different styles, STARTING ON
TURN 11.  If two teams obtain Stylemaster Awards in 7 styles on the same turn, the
goal will be increased to 8 Styles.

Team Recognition Points:  The total recognition points for all warriors in the arena
The Iron Throne Ledger:  We will track who has been the Duelmaster every turn in
     Arena history.
Iron Throne Counter:  The total number of times a team has been the Duelmaster.
Composite Team Stylemaster awards:  The number of times a team has had any of the 10
     Stylemasters.  Having 2 Stylemasters = 2 points that turn.
Challenge win percentage:  How often your warriors win when they challenge.
Challenge Defender rate:  How often your warriors win when they WERE challenged.
Team Invitations:  Number of warriors graduated to ADM.
Team Graduation Rate:  Total team fights/Graduated Warriors.
Team Kill Percentage:  Total of team Kills/Team Fights
Team Death Percentage:  Total of Team Deaths/Team Fights
Team Revenge Rate: Number of Deaths/BloodFeuds Revenged (Note that the Dark Arena
     will be counted as not-revenged.)  You only get credit for one successful
     BloodFeud per death (though I encourage you to BloodFeud all 4 turns.)
Current Win Streaks:  Warriors that have gone the most turns without losing or
     missing a turn.
Team Yahtzee counter:  Number of times a team has gone 5-0 in a turn.
Team Bagel counter:  Number of times a team has fought without a win.
Team Dark Arena counter:  Number of times each team has used the Dark Arena.
The Most Feared (avoided) Team counter:  Number of turns that team was the most
     avoided team.

     We will create a web page just for Arena 81 category leaders.
     Hope to see you there. -- Deke
