                             Notes from the arena champ.

Aradi -- Hello, again!  Last turn I was able to successfully fend off a determined
Derrin for the throne.  I believe that makes me 3-0 vs. him in my career.  Do you
care to try for a best-of-seven, Derrin?

Creepster, I believe this gives me two awards now, in your mind?  Or does a defense
against a warrior I've previously beaten not count?  I eagerly await your
determination.  I value your opinion so....

Should I be able to hold the throne for one more turn, I should most assuredly be
given my invited to Advanced.  I eagerly await that honor.  Samwise tells me he has
"big plans" for me in the advanced arenas.  What those are, I have no idea.

I wish I could tell you who I challenged this turn, but, alas, I've forgotten.  More
than seven days has passed since our strategies were submitted and Samwise's memory
is not what it once was.

Until next time, Aradi....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ARADI.  Like, CRAZY CREEPS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by DEATH STUDS VII!  Way to go DEATH 
STUDS VII!  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but VILLAINOUS LEGION 
really goofed with their 0-0-0.  The guys at CHILDHOOD TRAUMA like really pulled 
together to get a 3-0-0 this turn, moving up by 5.  MVP award for DAYNE?  WING HOVE's 
proud of him after beating HARSIESUS and getting 27 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  HARSIESUS' match with DAYNE cost him a loss of 22 points!  Don't you think 
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think MALT-O-MEAL should let JAMIS be Duelmaster 
for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of WILD CARDS 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 DEATH STUDS VII?  WILD CARDS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is ONE-TIMER popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of ARADI!  He's got a 39-10-0, is that good?  See if I 
ever talk to ONE-TIMER again!  ETTIN was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  Is 
this how DEATH STUDS VII advances, by having their members (ONE-TIMER) fight people 
that are really below them (ETTIN)?  Ooh!  Did RIP TORN really know what he was doing 
when he challenged ANALISE?  A 5-2-0 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't 
know what it means.) Do you think RIP TORN knew something before he challenged 
ANALISE?  He got a win and 21 points.  What will the guy do next?  People were asking 
me did HAPPY G'MO' REALLY challenge ROSCOE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but ROSCOE wants me to 
write about it since he bested HAPPY G'MO'.  Satisfied?   
     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!  NINJA got wasted by THE 
RIDDLER!  But with a 10-13-0, I guess SILENT WARRIORS aren't too bummed.  Fight, 
fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Hippy, happy hoppitoppi Christmaseronious yippy ti yi yobanger! -- The Creepster

And a Happy New Year. -- The Crazy Creeps scribe

Death Stud -- Congratulations on your 5-0 in Aradi last turn.  It was no SMALL feat.
-- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

All you colluding, manipulating, one-for-all-all-for-one, surprisingly decent folk
FONZers -- We are all looking forward to seeing you at The Face. -- The Consortium
Folk

FONZ = Frolicking orangutans nuzzling zebras.

Ed. -- Actually, super-market lines was Death Stud's brain-child (I can't remember
whether I voted on it or not--those FONZ senate meetings are so long & tedious).
Naturally, he has Soultaker do his shopping for him. -- Nuln, spreading holiday
misery & discontent

     Hmmm...I think I'll hold you all equally guilty.  It's more fun that way. -- Ed.

AF&AWAFP Ed. -- Seasonal?  Really.  Hunh. -- Nuln

Lady "E" as in "Ex-cuh-yuuuuuse Me" -- Heh heh.  Well, that's a risk you take when
your whole name consists of a single letter, and you hang out with other people with
single letter names.  Can you imagine the FONZ non-alliance meetings if we used that
convention?  With three Lord S's alone it would be sheer, outright and utter mayhem.
Yes, mayhem, m'lady. -- Lord N.....uln
P.S.  Thanks for the scrod to the noggin; for the first time in weeks I feel alive.

Pauly -- It's funny you should say that, because I was thinking to myself that my
cocoon joke *was* missing a gruff, portly, aged no-nonsense endorser of oatmeal.
Except for some reason, my brain kept filling in the blank with "Soultaker."  Your
suggestion makes more sense tho'. -- Shmamy Crockett, retired to a life of pondering
bad jokes

Samwise -- I must say, it warmed my blackened chaos heart to see your p-ad last turn.
Excuse me.  <wiping away a tear>  Welcome back, Carter. -- Nuln
P.S.  Did the FONZ conche shell work?

D. Studly -- With a few suggestions from a highly paid consultant, I have a slightly
more efficient plan: only run a hodge-podge of rookies assembled hastily on Friday,
and along with the failed BG attempt you suggested be out of the whole thing by mid-
Saturday.  My consultant highly recommends being able to watch something called
"football" all day on Sunday. -- Nuln, slowly but slowly perfecting his tourney
skeels

Inferno -- Thank you for your invaluable advice. -- Nuln

Ettin -- A loss and only one skill.  You really know how to hit a gal where it hurts.
-- Leg Warmer Lust

Lava Tube -- See above ad.  Jerk-wad. -- the Avenging Scrod, brimming with vengitude

Death Stud -- Re:  your p-ad to Soultaker:  You're assuming he sleeps lying down.  He
may sleep bat-like, hanging from his claw-like toe-nails. -- Nuln
P.S.  I don't know for a fact that he has claw-like toe-nails, but the possibility
exists.

Red Tail (and Pauly) -- If there's even a hit of you bolting Shadowspire, you'll be
in lock-down suffocating on fish-farts so fast you won't even have time to say
goodbye to your stuffed whale, Mompy.  Filthy, godless animal-napper. -- Nuln

Pauly -- *chuckle*  Loved the story! -- Nuln

A happy holidays to all Aradinians! -- Nuln & Co.

Deathburg -- If you kill any of my warriors I'll....  I'll....  I'll burn down the
arena. -- Paulton
P.S.  Have you seen my stapler?

All -- That 0-4 I pulled last turn was just me doing my impression of Wing Hove.
ZING! -- Pauly

Indimar -- Do you think the grudge matches at the FtF can be between actual managers
in an actual arena (hopefully Thunder Dome-esque)?  If so, I challenge you!  Loser
has to go to next year's FtF wearing a pink unitard. -- Pauly
P.S.  Actually, scratch that last part.  After all, two men enter, one man leave.

All -- Would you consider 40% W/L to be the Mendoza line of DM? -- Pauly

AARP -- Ouch, sorry about putting the final nail on Loose Dentures' 8-14.  I hope
that the replacement is very good and gives you even more reason to stay active in
Aradi. -- Evil

Nuln -- I will try to do better with the faux bitterness thing.  You scared me when
you started talking about napping with Soultaker.  As supple and cuddly as he is, I
will have to respectfully pass on that for now. -- Death Stud

     Supple and cuddly?  That seems like an odd combination somehow. -- Ed.

Lady E -- Glad you enjoyed those certificates, I thought it would be nice for
everyone.  The thing about being the highest scoring Delarquan who ran on maintenance
just gets you undying respect from all. -- Death Stud
P.S.  The FTF is the weekend of Jan 12th, less than two scant weeks after you will be
reading this.  Same place as last year.
P.P.S.  Sincere wishes that life stuff starts looking up.

Snotman/Hombre -- When I was discussing your sometimes tourney prep last turn, that
was meant in all respect to your success with said prepping style and should have
finished with, "and STILL get a big handful of TV's". -- Death Stud

30 November 2006
NEED A TURF WAR ALLIANCE??  Master Beru, Wretch, Reaper, and Xoan have come together
to form an Alliance for the TURF WAR in DM47 with no regards for experience in
competitions or even the game.  If you want to enjoy the thrills of the competition,
we have space for up to three more managers.  Contact Master Beru at
d_spinella@msn.com for more information or send a note to Master Beru at DM 29--Army
of Darkness.  If you are interested, we need to move quickly, since the contest
starts in January and there are a few requirements to meet to participate.  May your
blades find the chinks in your enemy's armor. -- Master Beru

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
the Arena direction has been developed.
     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
