                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Alarond showed up to do us a spy report here, and let's take a look at it and 
see what he's got, eh?

     "Hail, HOME GUARD!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds."  This one puzzles me, since he doesn't mention any deeds outside the 
arena, and it isn't like you have much choice regarding your deeds inside.  Fight or 
sit it out.  "And let's see, HELM HAMMERHAND fought GAR & BRILL and gained 38 points 
and contributed to LORDS OF VALHALLA's 1-0-0.  GAR & BRILL has lost to HELM 
HAMMERHAND, falling 34 points, while helping make JUST BECAUSE a 0-1-0 turn."  Ah, 
yes, the old discrepancy between points found and points learned that so puzzles 
Debby Tonte.  "We should ask TENACIOUS about the thrill of victory, and what being 
the new Duelmaster [Captain of the Guard, doesn't Alaarond pay any attention to where 
he is?] does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for 
me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Bash & Glug 
until they win.  Maybe?"  And then again, maybe not.  What gave him the idea that the 
Bash & Glug uses dishes?  You bring your own tankard, and the rest is finger food.
     "I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A 
basher friend of mine assures me this is true."  Actually, it depends on what you're 
doing with it.  "The most challenged warrior this turn was BLADES OF STEEL's warrior 
BECKY.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster [Captain of the 
Guard]!"  The Captain, in fact, didn't get a single challenges.  "In a brave attempt, 
CEER from THE BLOODGUARD 2 challenged up 23 points to fight HALLIE O'DENE from the 
CIRQUE DU MASQUES stable.  CEER perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was 
bested by HALLIE O'DENE and ended up with 155 recognition points."  Talk about your 
no seequitours!
     "A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true."  Oh, yes?  Somehow I got the impression that except for victors in Dead 
Tourneys, EVERYBODY dies only once.  "We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob 
the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude."  What?  
Huh, who are the enemies of the graves?  Do graves even HAVE enemies, as such?  Then 
again, if we're looking at the graves BELONGING to the enemies of "certain teams," 
well, why SHOULDN'T they rob 'em?  Looting is a time-honored tradition.
     "Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe."  
Suuuure it doesn't.  "Dare to fight bravely."  How about 'dare to fight 
intelligently'?  "Always good to rest in HOME GUARD, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in HOME GUARD again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe"  I don't mind his quill, but I can do without Alarond 
really easily.

     For those little details that Alarond neglected:  there were nineteen fights, 
two of them involving standbys.  Three challenges (Becky, the Most Challenged, 
probably got two).  No avoids.  At all.  And no deaths.  All in all, pretty punk.  I 
guess that's because of the tourney coming up and the holiday just behind.  Oh well.  
At least some people showed up.  That's better than some places do.

All -- Just a NICE reminder... In ADM your home arena number is part of your id
number.  If you don't put it on your strategy sheets, you run the risk of your
warrior missing a fight. -- NAIEI

Aedon -- Laid the smack down! -- Drandus, feeling his oats in a style mismatch

Hellacious -- Yeeesss, after giving it careful thought, I would have to agree that
you are well-named.  You will go far in the world of gladiating. -- Hallie O'Dene
P.S.  Gods know why anyone would WANT to.

Hebee -- Jebee. -- Lini Dawnwind
P.S.  I don't know what that means.  Somebody told me to say it.
P.P.S.  It just crawled into my hand, honest!

Mountain Goat -- Oh, it's you. -- Snipper
P.S.  Well, they tell me for five skills I have to be civil.  Darned if I know why.
But here goes:  Hi, it's you again.  What a thrill.

Reddi Whip -- NO!  I want GENUINE whipped cream, dammit! -- Pine Leaf

Harley the Cadaver -- I don't think the Brick Wall even realizes it was in a fight

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

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

     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
