    '##/###' Avoid teams by their Team Id     '-'  Team did not fight this turn

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     This is totally unacceptable.  Only one fight today was action packed, and only 
two were exciting!  How can we draw the fans without more "thrills and chills," more 
blood and gore (crowds are notorious for their bloody tastes)?  I looked for an 
explanation of this lack of action and excitement and found that NINE standbys fought 
today.  Yes, fine, it's quite true that the standbys also need practice and a chance 
to "do it for real."  But not all at once!
     We had twenty-three fights today, which, with nine standbys, means only thirty-
seven active warriors.  Sad, but not unexpected.  Nobody died.  Five challenges.  
Superior Forces was or were avoided by Kellumbo's Kids.  Caddy Jackknife got the most 
challenges... from, you guessed it, Kellumbo's Kids.

     So much for the introductory materials, on to the fights.
     SATURN (41-3990) (16-56-0,54) of WANDERERS fought SHADOW OUT OF TIME (41-1622) 
(22-16-1,86) of THE PLAGUE.  SATURN was overpowered by SHADOW OUT OF TIME in a 1 
minute one-sided match.  Haven't we just HAD this fight?  Yes, okay, random match, 
maybe it amuses the handicapper, Harlogen Dri'ith.  The gods know his tastes are 
strange.
     SOLARIS (46-3759) (24-56-0,54) of RUBY DRAGONS fought MARS (41-3989) (18-9-0,85) 
of WANDERERS.  SOLARIS was vanquished by MARS in a 1 minute mismatched fray.  This 
will have Mars boasting of his dragon-subduing prowess, but we can live with that, I 
think.  Surely better than with his sulking.
     LURLINE GRACE (41-4164) (15-15-0,63) of WANDERERS fought TARIN SHARPEYES (105-3) 
(0-0-0,100) of Gentlemen from the Stands.  LURLINE GRACE was demolished by TARIN 
SHARPEYES in a 1 minute uneven bout.  And the Grace-ful one slides into the shadowy 
realm of uncontestably losing records.  Hmm.  I don't usually go all poetic like 
that, do you suppose it's something in the air?  A lack of oxygen, perhaps.
     WARDUKE (11-5930) (38-46-3,132) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II fought LAWRENCE THE SOT 
(105-10) (0-0-0,150) of Gentlemen from the Stands.  WARDUKE overpowered LAWRENCE THE 
SOT in a 1 minute uneven fight.  And so we urge you all, find out what Lawrence was 
drinking and avoid the horrid stuff.  It is obviously unsuitable for gladiators.  I'm 
not even sure where he gets it, you know.  Lawrence disappears for days on end.

     VAN HELSING (11-6338) (38-27-1,166) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II fought TYLARRA (105-
23) (0-0-0,150) of Gentlemen from the Stands.  VAN HELSING handily defeated TYLARRA 
in a 1 minute mismatched competition.  The notes, however, don't say whether he did 
it right-handedly or left-handedly, and from my position in the Spy Reporter's Box, I 
was unable to see for myself.
     DEAD OF WINTER (41-970) (30-27-2,166) of THE PLAGUE fought FLUTTERLEE (41-4153) 
(23-16-0,101) of WANDERERS.  DEAD OF WINTER overpowered FLUTTERLEE in a 1 minute one-
sided match.  And, frankly, I would expect the dead of winter to overpower just about 
anybody.  I certainly wouldn't care to take it on myself!  Not a DEAD winter.
     KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN (46-3809) (43-32-1,160) of RUBY DRAGONS fought TESSHIAN (105-
22) (0-0-0,181) of Gentlemen from the Stands.  KHORNE SHADOWSPAWN subdued TESSHIAN in 
a 1 minute bout.  You'll notice we're seeing standbys out here that haven't fought in 
months.  It's because this is the last occasion before the solstice when they COULD 
fight, and there is a stipulation in their contracts requiring "attendance on the 
sands in each half of the year" if they want their contracts renewed.
     SOLAR SISTER (71-5609) (29-11-0,199) of THE FURIOUS FIVE fought CRISSY (11-4993) 
(39-24-4,202) of VIEW ASKEW.  SOLAR SISTER was devastated by CRISSY in a 1 minute 
one-sided fight.  If, just to ask a hypothetical question, a Solar Sister is 
devastated, does that explain the Death of Winter?  Not enough sunlight?

     WOLVERINE (66-3871) (50-94-4,200) of X-FORCE fought BERYL (105-26) (0-0-0,181) 
of Gentlemen from the Stands.  WOLVERINE was handily defeated by BERYL in a crowd 
pleasing 2 minute mismatched bout.  Definitely an ungentlemanly effort on Wolverine's 
part, but then again, winning fights IS his job.  And he may have his own contract to 
worry about.
     CONNOR MACLEOD (11-5532) (50-52-0,193) of SCARLET KNIGHTS II fought JIMI (105-
27) (0-0-0,240) of Gentlemen from the Stands.  CONNOR MACLEOD was overpowered by JIMI 
in a 1 minute uneven struggle.  What can Dri'ith have been thinking to allow such a 
mis-match?  Between properly enrolled gladiators, yes, but with a standby?  There are 
standbys of more suitable rank.
     WARPATH (66-2926) (78-135-4,183) of X-FORCE fought GHRYSHAN (105-25) (0-0-0,181) 
of Gentlemen from the Stands.  WARPATH overpowered GHRYSHAN in a popular 2 minute 
gruesome mismatched conflict.  Nothing like grue to make the fans go wild, though it 
would appear, see below, that Ghryshan was not pleased.
     IRIADOR (50-2481) (58-38-2,194) of DRUID'S GROVE fought GHRYSHAN (105-25) (0-0-
0,181) of Gentlemen from the Stands.  IRIADOR was demolished by GHRYSHAN in a 1 
minute mismatched match.  An annoyed standby can be a lot tougher than one might 
imagine.
     GOKU (46-3655) (65-59-2,204) of DRAGONBALL Z fought RHYNIAN ALANDA (105-9) (0-0-
0,200) of Gentlemen from the Stands.  GOKU demolished RHYNIAN ALANDA in a crowd 
pleasing 2 minute mismatched competition.  Defeated by a pickle!  I know, Goku is 
not, in fact, a pickle, but he reminds me of one irresistibly.  It must be his warts.

     SANDS (11-4123) (59-103-3,187) of SCARLET KNIGHTS fought DEATH FOG (45-4017) 
(36-16-0,188) of SUPERIOR FORCES.  SANDS handily defeated DEATH FOG in an exciting 1 
minute one-sided bout.  Hmm.  I knew sand was good for ice, but I didn't realize it 
could prevail against fog as well.  Good to know, given the season.
     HUMMEL (14-1404) (69-129-2,183) of MIKES fought TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD (11-4304) 
(66-84-0,185) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  HUMMEL lost to TALISMAN SHIELDGUARD in a popular 2 
minute brutal fight.  A couple of fossils, neither of which does anything amusing 
here, so who cares?  Well, the fans, obviously, and the bookies.
     SMITH (14-1282) (71-129-4,184) of MIKES fought BLACKRAZOR (11-4091) (60-104-
1,201) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  SMITH viciously subdued BLACKRAZOR in a popular 6 minute 
gruesome duel.  Have you seen the portrait of Smith on the cough drop packages?  If 
so, you understand how he was able to defeat a razor.
     MEMPHIS (82-29598) (24-12-0,234) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS 26 fought NIXIE SEASPRITE 
(11-4992) (50-52-0,205) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  MEMPHIS handily defeated NIXIE SEASPRITE 
in an action packed 1 minute uneven fight.  This was, if I recall correctly, for 
which I make no promises, our only action-packed fight.  Rather short, but we must 
take what we can get.

     Ah, the challenge matches:
     GRANDPA RAT (22-6549) (23-10-1,65) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged PARNIAN (41-
4138) (20-25-1,93) of WANDERERS.  Up 28.  GRANDPA RAT devastated PARNIAN in a crowd 
pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  Why, that rat!  Actually, well done, 
Grandpa.  Your age hardly shows at all.
     BLIND GIRL (22-6041) (26-8-0,129) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged LUKARIAN LAMORAK 
(11-4841) (53-64-1,129) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Straight across.  BLIND GIRL luckily 
beat LUKARIAN LAMORAK in an exciting 3 minute Challenge fight.  Surely it was not 
ONLY luck here.  What of the quicksilver grace and dexterity with which Blind Girl 
wielded that red-and-white cane?  (So appropriate for the season, too!)
     SONIC TACO (30-4337) (30-26-2,149) of TRIP OUT challenged VAJRA VALMEJAR (11-
4928) (50-62-0,173) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  Up 24.  SONIC TACO was vanquished by VAJRA 
VALMEJAR in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Apparently Vajra was hungry.  I 
can understand that.  I get hungry myself, and a taco is generally welcome at such 
times.
     HOMELESS PRINCE (22-6012) (61-39-1,206) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged POETIC 
JUICE (66-2975) (49-36-0,222) of ANDORIAN UNIVERSITY.  Up 16.  HOMELESS PRINCE was 
handily defeated by POETIC JUICE in a 2 minute Challenge match.  Does this mean that 
Homeless has no poetry in his soul?
     VISION (26-1573) (87-46-3,206) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged CADDY JACKKNIFE 
(11-4288) (52-30-1,220) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS.  Up 14, to Most Challenged Caddy.  
VISION devastated CADDY JACKKNIFE in a 6 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Ah, hard 
luck after a hard fight (it took six minutes, after all).

     And for the title:
     LUCIAS CLAY (22-6359) (35-24-0,250) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS fought TITANIA (65-5835) 
(36-25-0,196) of SUPERIOR FORCES 3J.  No challenge, you will note.  LUCIAS CLAY 
luckily beat TITANIA in a 2 minute Title brawl.  Was it really luck, or a 
determination not to be stuck with doing the dishes?  Congratulations to both 
warriors.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

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

Grandpa Rat -- Ah, it's you!  Quite the old friend and familiar companion, aren't
you?  Yeahyeah (sigh), you just love me for the skills I teach.  Well, that's a lot
better than no love!  I'll take it, and I'll thank you for the skills you taught ME,
as well.  Thanks. -- Parnian
P.S.  Not to mention, thanks for the win.  I can really use that, and you're not
hurting for wins yet.

Lukarian Lamorak -- I fight someone like you, and I can fully understand the distaste
other managers feel toward bringing in low-experience warriors.  (sigh)  And you
won't even talk.  Oh, well, four skills is nothing to sneeze at.  Er, if I sneeze,
it's because I'm allergic to...ah, something.  Don't know what, but I'm SURE I'm
allergic to SOMETHING. -- Flutterlee

Solaris -- Aha!  I've beaten you to your knees!  I LOVE doing that. -- Mars
P.S.  Do I have to actually kill you to get your hoard?  Is that why the arenamaster
stopped the fight?  He's got an interest in it himself?

Yogonith.  (sigh)  I tried the "I didn't sign on to fight demons from some strange
dimension" line, but the steward says that actually, that's what I DID sign on for,
so I went to look at the contract, and (sigh) he was right.  I did.  Darn. -- Lurline
Grace

Shadow Out of Time -- Hmm, it figures that you'd be a lefty, since you're sinister.
Of course, *I* am a lefty also, and not in the least sinister...on the surface.  Of
course, beneath the surface, hidden by the ring-shadow, well, there is more to me
than you might think!  I have subtleties and nuances that would amaze you. -- Saturn
P.S.  Somewhere I do.  I'm sure I saw them around just the other day, and I put them
in a safe place so I could find them when I needed them, but I just can't seem to put
my hand on them at this moment....

     They all say that.

Ardane -- The "flowers and perfume" from Yogonith were...strange.  I've never seen
flowers like that, can't even imagine what they grew on, and the perfume...makes me
think strange things when I smell it.  I haven't dared to put any actually ON my skin
yet. -- Lurline Grace

Ardane -- My lawyer says I mustn't talk about the lawsuit until things have advanced

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/

     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
