                             Notes from the arena champ.

Ahh now this is a most pleasant surprise yes indeed!  I'm thinking the Bookies put a
fix in that time, he he.  Hopefully this time also.  Welp, best of luck on the sands,
less it's vs. mine of course.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ROCANIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, MOSSIE ROCKTROLL fought MALUS S'PROUT and gained 14 points and 
contributed to INCONSISTENT FURY's 4-1-1.  MALUS S'PROUT has lost to MOSSIE 
ROCKTROLL, falling 7 points, while helping make BAD APPLES a 2-2-0 turn.  This turn 
TWIG LITE ZONE challenged HAWTHORN in what was ROCANIS' Title bout.  And not without 
some honor, HAWTHORN now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ROCANIS.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS has cause to stand tall, as they were 
ROCANIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
INCONSISTENT FURY.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was BAD 
APPLES' warrior GAFFER SMITH.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ROCANIS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ROCANIS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ROCANIS, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ROCANIS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Well, the word is out, Jorja's really going to do it.  After this turn's fights, we
get bumped to Erinika, and a Middle Way team comes in here.  Talk about dirty pool!
We were doing GOOD here, we were on a ROLL.  But no, she wants us gone, so gone we'll
be.  Huh.  She's out to GET us, that's what it is.  We're being persecuted. -- Malus
S'Prout

Twig Lite Zone -- And you're a prime persecutor.  Take the title and choke on it, you
darned twig. -- Malus S'Prout

Purple Kitten -- That's inconsistent, sure enough.  Bad enough to meet a purple cow!
-- Hawthorn

Mossie Rocktroll -- That's a fine crop of moss you've got there, lad.  Take care of
it, and it will take care of you. -- Gaffer Smith

Tritus -- I'll be glad to be through with you. -- Limbdropper
P.S.  Not that there won't be someone just as annoying in Erinika.

Malus 5 Prat (or something like that) -- Ahh, I got a chance that time.  *big smile*
-- Twig Lute Zone

Loveable Larry -- Where are u?  I miss you so.... -- Purple Kitten

Hawthorn -- Oh my gulp ouch! -- Purple Kitten

Gaffer Smith -- Yikes was sure I was dead toast that time. -- Massie Rocktroll

Knights of Rocanis -- Tis getting hard to avoid ya. *grin* -- Inconsistant Fury

Hey what's with teams/warriors not showing up in the lists?  How is one supposed to
manage properly without such info? -- Banthius, mgr. Inconsistant Fury

Hail Alastarians!
     Allow me to introduce myself.  I am Vanek, manager of the Warmasters in the No-
Tourney arena of Shadowspire.  I come to you with a public service announcement.
Some of you may already be aware of Shadowspire and some of you may not realize what
exactly you're missing.  This isn't your average arena.  This is Shadowspire, a large
and very active arena where role-playing is encouraged; many managers are active both
the personal ads and the D2 forums online, and excitement reigns with many grudge
matches from turn to turn.
     If you haven't checked arena 81 out, I urge you to do so.  After returning to
the game almost 2 years ago, after a 15+ year hiatus, I was looking to try and
recapture the magic of the game I remembered from my youth.  After finding my first
two arenas lacking, I almost quit the game again.  That was until I found the newly
opening Shadowspire.  It was here that I found the magic and excitement that I
remembered.  I truly love this arena and am sure you will too if given a chance.
Rookie or experienced veteran, it matters not.  Both have come together here to
successfully make an arena with plenty of competition to challenge the vets, yet with
the no tourney format, friendly enough for the novices to get their feet wet and
learn (or relearn) the game.  When I say that even novices can find success here, I
speak from personal experience.  I still consider myself a "newbie" to the game but
have found plenty of success with my first two Duelmaster titles and two ADM
graduates to date.
     I encourage you all to check out the D2 forums at www.reality.com/duel2/ and
look over both the Shadowspire newsletter and DM-81 forum section at the bottom of
the page.  The forum banter and personal ads help to clearly show that the "old
school" feel for the game is still alive and well here in Shadowspire.
     Also, if you're a former Shadowspire manager who is currently away, I encourage
you to return and help continue to make this one of the most entertaining arenas in
the game today!
     I hope to see many new faces in the near future and am excited to see the return
of some of the old faces whom have been away!
     Sincerely,
          Vanek

8 October 2008
After 17 long years they are finally cutting the Cowboy loose.  Red & stinging, my
hand is now sufficiently slapped.  The state of Texas' boot print is stamped across
my ***... Uncle Damnit!  I am only 34 (think about it...) so plenty of time to
reinvent myself...prospects are great.  After wading through the culture shock I hope
to be amongst you soon, dishing out paper "w"itch slaps and taking my share of them
from you.  See you @ the Winter face '09?  Only time will tell.  Good luck. --
CFH/Rat Salad, 5 Below Zero and an assortment of other underachieving thugs.
P.S.  Contact info coming soon for those who want it; email and all that other fun
sh...stuff.  *grin*  Sorry Ed.

                   declare or fail to send a Gift Certificate by Turn 1.  In other
                   words, if your Gift Certificate is not received until Turn 3 of
                   the Turf War, and you have fought on Turns 1 and 2, your scoring
                   will not begin until Turn 3.  All conditions must be met before
                   scoring will begin--declaration, verification, and Gift
                   Certificate received.
               e.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 5 of
                   the Turf War.
               f.  For purposes of scoring, the moderators will score the Turf War
                   and settle any and all disputes as they arise.  Their decisions
                   will be final.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
Duelmaster                                       +2

Champions:
     1.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory.
     2.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
     3.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior in the arena, but
         not the Dark Arena, may be replaced.
     4.  Champions must be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

Bloodfeuds:
        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is ALLOWED and encouraged.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one

        4.  Points for TVs and TCs will be applied the Turn after RSI posts
            tournament results in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter (i.e., if the
            results post on North Fork turn 275, points will be credited on North
            Fork turn 276 to the applicable teams).

Special Considerations:
        1.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
        2.  There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun.  If
            you begin the Turf War with Alliance A, you must end the Turf War with
            Alliance A.  If you begin the Turf War with Team A, you must end the Turf
            War with Team A.
        3.  There will be a maximum of seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.

            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have

        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
