Hail and well met, Amen-Tei!

Turn 386 was a momentous one for our stable, as both Furious Terror and I received
our invites.  I've got pretty average numbers starting life as 10-3-13-15-15-13-15
but turned out I'm blessed +2 riposte, +4 attack, +2 decisiveness.  I leave with
favorites of epee, High/High, and learn decise. 

Furious Terror was an experiment in Waste Scum.  He started 17-16-7-5-21-9-10 and
ended 20-18-7-7-21-9-11 NO EXPERTS to save his life hahahahaha.  Favorites:
greatsword, low/very low, slash tactic and defense skills.

So we start anew next turn with fresh faces.  See you on the sands.

Speedway
ala Talon Volksie

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, AMEN-TEI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see HENRICH win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VIRGINAL 
CONCUBINE beat TOM-TOM TORA and TOM-TOM TORA lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, AMEN-TEI may be getting bland, as 
SPEEDWAY stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, AMEN-TEI?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the AMEN-TEI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Furious Terror -- That's what I feel when I have to share the road with some people.
And sometimes you're one of them!  Congratulations on your graduation, and may we
never meet on the sands again. -- Tom-Tom Tora

No Way! -- I wish! -- Roadblock

You know, Kung-Fu really is NOT my cup of tea. -- Avalanch Lily

Matt Kenseth -- Why didn't I learn as much?  I can't be stupider, can I, even if I'm
blonde? -- Slippery
P.S.  Does your appearance mean that your team is staying here even though two
warriors are graduating?

Ha!  Even shifting his eyes like that wasn't enough to protect the Volunteer.  I
pinged in thoroughly with... Loose Gravel

Good gods, Furtive Returns died at the hands of the Ambitious Guard?  This is
shocking! -- all the Wayfarers

The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to

4 September 2006
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
