                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well here I am, your Duelmaster.  I'm ready to graduate, so we'll see how long it
takes.  Shouldn't take too long.  We'd like to get Xander to graduate, but he needs
some help.  So if you fight him be sure to teach him an extra skill or two.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JURINE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, FEAR FACTORY, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see MIKAI ABADOS win a fight and gain 20 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MIKAI ABADOS beat SAND MAGGOT and SAND MAGGOT lost 13 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JURINE may 
be getting bland, as SHIVAREE SJDEN 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BLADE AND BLOOD was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks 
like PHILANTHROPISTS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  JADRA was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the JURINE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of JURINE.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Mikai Abados -- What the hell am I doing with this armor and weapon choice?  Even
Jorja couldn't be that mean, could she?  Input error!  Not your fault, of course, and
not a chance Jorja will try to track it back to the source or anything, but I bet I
get a NEW STRATEGY, or at least new armor and weapons, this time! -- Laelkorissa

Xander Haxan -- Wait a minute, weren't you supposed to LOSE?  I'm sure that's what it
says on the cue cards. -- Chillili Chess

Shivaree Sjden -- Suffer. -- Ghost of Randy

Sibi el Keer -- Because I didn't feel like it. -- Laelkorissa
P.S.  Jorja has promised me that if I survive to graduate, she'll let me retire.  I
would like to retire, but graduating, and thus surviving, is the only way it's going
to happen.

Chillili Ches -- Thanks for the win and the skills.  Perhaps I'll graduate before the
end of the year -- Xander Haxan

Laelkorissa -- How do you pronounce your name!? -- Mikai Abados

Garok -- For a little guy, you are dangerous. -- Sibi El Keer

Laelkorissa -- Ethon is an idiot.  If he was smart he would have graduated by now.
It's not like Veastian is a tough arena. -- Sibi El Keer

Civil War/The Crusades

The next edition of the Civil War series is to be held in Tobir, arena 14, beginning
November 25th with a round where all participating managers must DA all 5 of their
warriors; in addition all warriors must be prefixed with an A an F or a D in the
following manner:  A-Broke Stroker or (A) Broke Stroker.  Names simply beginning with
the letter of your federation will NOT count as properly prefixed!  Existing teams
are welcome but no warrior who survives the DA who had prior Fight Experience (arena
or tourney) will be allowed to score or challenge into the contest teams.  There will
be an equal number of teams set up for each of the three factions (Andorian, Free
Blades, and Delarquan) to create sides as equal as possible.  This along with the DA
round should set up pretty equal footing for all managers.  After the DA there will
be another round where you can either DA again or fight your new, or surviving,
warriors so they will be set up to challenge an opponent beginning on round 1.  So as
a recap DA round, turn 0, then turn 1 it begins with the following rules:

The Civil War to be held in arena 14.
- The contest runs for 10-28 turns (barring ties).
- No tourney participation allowed.  Teams with warriors participating in any
  tournament are disqualified.
- An even number of teams per faction worked out by the Faction Leaders.  No later
  substitutions are allowed.
- If a manager brings in a second team and challenges into the contest he is DQ'd and
  his side will fight one team short!
- Three factions will be participating:  Andorian, Delarquan, Free Blades
- Everyone prefixes their warrior with A-, F-, or D- (No prefix = disqualification of
  the warrior)
- Turn DA:  (The DA Round) November 25, 2006.  Every warrior must DA.  (Warriors not
  DA'd on Turn 0 are disqualified)
- Turn 0:  December 9th, 2006.  There will be no scoring this turn it is meant to
  allow for challenges on turn 1.
- Turn 1+:  Scoring as detailed below
- Each team gets 1 point for defeating a warrior from an opposing team.
- Fights against warriors on your team do not generate points in any situation.
- The team with the most points each turn gets a Battle Point (if there is a tie for
  the most points then no Battle Points are accrued)
- The first team to 10 Battle Points wins the war
- Managers of teams on the winning side each receive a +1 bonus potion to be used on
  a warrior on their contest team.  This must be applied within a month of the
  conclusion of the contest and the team must have been active on the last turn of
  the contest.

Anyone wishing to participate, and feels they can probably stick around for the
duration (don't want to handicap a side, of course unforeseeable events cannot be
planned for), should either diplo me at THE DEATH SQUAD(63) in Tobir (arena 14) or
place a personal ad in the arena.  You may also contact me via the Duel2.com boards!
Let me know which faction you would like to fight for!  This contest is intended to
be open to ALL managers wishing to pit themselves against each other to try and
determine which faction has the best managers! -- Street Legal

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.
