                             THE ADM REGIONAL TOURNAMENT

The next ADM Regional Tournament will be held in the months of October/November 2011
and will be contested in the regular arenas during the late Summer months.

Q: What is the ADM Regional Tournament?
A: The ADM Regional Tournament is a competition where the best and brightest warriors
   from the ADM regionals compete for bragging rights and to see which region is the
   best!

Q: How does it work?
A: During the month of October, the warriors of each Regional Team will be temporarily
   moved to a special regional arena, where they will battle it out in a single
   elimination tournament.  The last warrior standing wins for his region.  (Learns,
   skills, and FE gained during the contest will not be permanent.)

   Results will be posted online during the months of October/November.

Q: How are teams determined?
A: There are 10 warrior slots given out to each team. The 10 Stylemasters of each
   regional arena during Saturday, October 15th will automatically qualify and be
   selected.

   To qualify for a Stylemaster position, you must have been active in the arena in 4
   of the prior 6 turns including the last one (2 of the last 3 for Crysalis).  (Thus,
   you'll want to activate your warriors before the week of July 23rd, to be safe.)

   Should a team not be able to qualify all 10 warriors, they may select wildcard
   entrants to fill those empty slots.  However, they must have at least 7 different
   styles represented AND no more than 2 of any style.  Should they not be able to
   meet this criteria, their team will be filled with NPCs.

   Each manager may only play for 1 region and may qualify no more than 3 warriors on
   a regional team.  They may play a 3rd warrior only if everyone else who wants to
   participate already has 2 and/or there is no other option.  A manager may not have
   more than 1 warrior of the same style on the regional team.

Q: What's a Regional Coordinator?
A: The Regional Coordinator is the unofficial "team captain":  They are in charge of
   putting together their team based on the rules, trying to make sure everyone is
   included and that any disputes are handled.  (For instance, if someone qualifies
   more than 2 warriors, the regional coordinator will work with that manager and
   determine which warriors will participate on the team, and then notify
   replacements, etc.)

   The Regional Coordinators are: Manager (Andorak), Buri(Darkholm), The Dark One
   (Free Blades), Crip (Crysalis), Master Darque (Unnamed No Tourney Arena), One Arm
   Bandit (Home Guard).  If you need to contact them, you can write a personal ad in
   the ADM arena, or send a diplo to them at:

                        Manager:        Superior Forces in DM 105
                        The Dark One:   Angels of Pain in DM 103
                        Buri:           Tackle Box in DM 104
                        One Arm Bandit: Sea Dogs in DM 101
                        Crip:           Royal Flush in DM 106
                        Master Darque:  Darque Ages in DM 81

Q: What does happen if someone qualifies more than 2 warriors?
A: That manager will be able to decide which 2 to send (or, if there are no other
   options, the manager may send 3--see above) and the next highest qualifying warrior
   will be able to take place of the warrior that doesn't get sent if it's an
   automatic spot.  It's definitely a good idea to communicate with your team
   coordinator and fellow teammates.  Remember, even though you are fighting for
   qualification spots, you all still want to put together a competitive team! (All
   of the captains treat this as an inclusive event so it's unlikely anyone will
   completely get left out in the cold.)

Q: What if my warriors are not in ADM regional?  Or, what if they are in the wrong
   ADM regional?
A: If your warriors are in 100, or are in the wrong region, and they haven't fought
   since the split, you can request to CSR to have them moved into the proper
   regional arena.

Q: Is there a prize?
A: Bragging rights!

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I was going to make this really fast short, because a lot of things are
breathing down my neck--most of them with sharp teeth, and some are drooling, too,
which is disgusting--but it was such a good turn that I feel it needs a little
effort.  So instead of "really fast and short," I'm going to try for "moderately fast
and fairly short."  One does as one must and one can.

     Godsmack advanced thirty points this cycle, achieving the "fastest moving
gladiator" award.  Orrie Pollas dropped nineteen points (different fight), and was
the fastest falling gladiator today.
     Novgorodny Vir thought someone here was challenging dead trees, but that happens
in Free Blades, not here.  People over there challenge Stump....
     Insp Gadgets Minions were most avoided, mostly by Royal Flush.
     Ravishing Redbud got the most... invitations to dance, let us say.  Her company
was much desired.
     There were thirty fights with three standbys, which isn't all that bad.  Ten of
them were challenges, which is a good ratio.  Seven were action-packed, and three
were exciting.  I have never figured out why a fight can't be BOTH action-packed and
exciting, but there it is.  The clerks probably don't have room for both at once on
their forms.

     DOMJON (50-3554) (28-42-3,56) of DRUID'S GROVE fought CAJETAN (7-6036) (15-10-
1,51) of SENTINELS.  DOMJON was beaten by CAJETAN in a 3 minute bout.  This is the
triumph of something, but don't ask me what.  Beyond the two fighters, I mean.
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (18-16-0,50) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought KENYA (4-6484) (27-1-
1,90) of KIWI CONNECTION.  AZAGHAL was beaten by KENYA in a popular 2 minute gory
match.  Perhaps not a surprise, given the difference in ranking.  We'll have to see
how Azaghal develops.
     On the side, I have heard that we're going to have a no-tourney Advanced arena
soon.  Does that mean the members of that arena won't do tourneys?  Inquiring Minds
are eager to know.
     KARIN LO (83-292) (14-20-0,40) of MIDDLE WAY 21 fought R.O.U.S. (106-4) (0-0-
0,50) of the College of Mimes.  KARIN LO won victory over R.O.U.S. in a popular 3
minute fray.  Take that, Rat!
     QUITA REMMING (83-294) (17-16-0,62) of MIDDLE WAY 21 fought R.O.U.S. (106-4) (0-
0-0,50) of the College of Mimes.  QUITA REMMING was beaten by R.O.U.S. in a popular 2
minute fight.  Revenge of the Rats?
     ORRIE POLLAS (83-295) (16-18-2,63) of MIDDLE WAY 21 fought ALASTARIAN DESERTER
(106-1) (0-0-0,30) of the College of Mimes.  ORRIE POLLAS slimly lost to ALASTARIAN
DESERTER in a crowd pleasing 3 minute bout.  You should be ashamed of your
performance, Orrie.

     QUEEN (82-33307) (13-7-0,97) of DARK TOADS 05Q fought LILAS KEELER (73-5840)
(19-13-1,54) of MIDDLE WAY 18.  QUEEN vanquished LILAS KEELER in an action packed 1
minute gory uneven bout.  If a Queen is also a Dark Toad, can she be a Good queen?  A
puzzling question.  She was full of action, anyway.
     AMELIA (28-3417) (41-30-1,95) of DODGE BULLETS fought OBROJOBO (7-5869) (17-15-
1,97) of SENTINELS.  AMELIA defeated OBROJOBO in an exciting 2 minute bout.  Amelia
was excited, Obrojbo was excited, the crowd was excited, and free "smash," which
seems to be some kind of fruit-and-alcohol drink, was served to many.  With umbrellas
in it.
     CRIMSON MIST (8-5047) (34-26-1,122) of BLOOD RITES fought GERRICK GRIMM (50-
3530) (27-53-1,96) of DRUID'S GROVE.  CRIMSON MIST defeated GERRICK GRIMM in a 2
minute duel.  Gerrick is rumored to be appealing on the ground that the mist clogged
his visor.  I can't say I find him appealing in any other sense, but that's just me.
     EVALON ELKHORN (50-3553) (33-37-3,162) of DRUID'S GROVE fought MOSQUITO (5-5011)
(22-13-1,143) of BLOOD SUCKERS.  EVALON ELKHORN was savagely defeated by MOSQUITO in
an action packed 3 minute fight.  Those mosquitoes will get anyone and everyone.  No
respecter of persons, mosquitos.  Nasty.
     GHOST DANCER (28-3365) (49-39-0,192) of DODGE BULLETS fought HAGAR BLUETOOTH
(10-5850) (28-4-1,170) of VIKINGS.  GHOST DANCER was bested by HAGAR BLUETOOTH in an
exciting 2 minute bout.  Exciting doesn't begin to describe this one!  At the end of
the first minute, it looked to ME like G. Dancer was actually invoking or summoning
ghosts.  Not that it did him much good, as Hagar was totally concentrated on the
fight.

     YOUNG JOAN (28-3534) (41-55-1,188) of DODGE BULLETS fought ANVIL IRONFIST (81-
84) (39-16-0,200) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  YOUNG JOAN was beaten by ANVIL IRONFIST in an
action packed 6 minute gruesome fray.  Now she's Black and Blue Joan.  The beating of
a woman with an anvil is a gruesome sight indeed.  Has anybody checked Ironfist's
gloves for concealed horsehoes?  But there was lots of action.
     VIOLATOR (44-2122) (54-43-1,190) of DEMONIC FURY fought LOOGIE CLAP (82-46049)
(37-30-2,191) of TONGUE N CHEEK.  VIOLATOR devastated LOOGIE CLAP in an action packed
2 minute brutal one-sided bout.  Devastating action, no less.  Well, if this Violator
is demonic, you can see it would be devastating.
     SCORPIUS (45-3752) (43-27-0,196) of KNIGHT BREED fought GODSMACK (82-48417) (26-
18-0,164) of TONGUE N CHEEK.  SCORPIUS was defeated by GODSMACK in a crowd pleasing 1
minute conflict.  This resulted in Godsmack's leap up the rankings.
     HUNTSMAN (7-5837) (35-20-0,189) of SENTINELS fought CLEVER (50-2192) (52-30-
2,189) of RANDOM BLADES.  HUNTSMAN overpowered CLEVER in a 1 minute one-sided bout.
A sure indication that cleverness alone is not enough.
     DISCO QUEEN (47-1992) (64-27-2,255) of ROYAL FLUSH fought TAMMY FAYE (39-3520)
(29-25-0,192) of WITLESS WONDERS.  DISCO QUEEN overpowered TAMMY FAYE in a 2 minute
one-sided bout.  Tammy just couldn't dance fast enough.

     THE REFEREE (45-1091) (77-50-4,211) of AVID FANS fought SODOM (31-4368) (35-23-
1,200) of DARQUE FORCES.  THE REFEREE was savagely defeated by SODOM in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute bloody brawl.  So much for fairness, or at least rules-following,
eh?
     KING FORADAY (47-3762) (65-52-4,284) of ROYAL FLUSH fought BLACK FLAG (82-46046)
(48-37-4,199) of TONGUE N CHEEK.  KING FORADAY was savagely defeated by BLACK FLAG in
an action packed 5 minute struggle.  A bitter loss for King, but Black had to work
hard at it.
     SLIPPERY NIPPLE (59-2323) (34-23-1,218) of HANGOVERS fought EVE (72-4596) (26-
14-0,197) of DARQUE FORCES.  SLIPPERY NIPPLE was handily defeated by EVE in a 1
minute uneven fight.  I'm fairly sure there's a quip here that I should ignore, so
I'm going to ignore it and let you think of your own.
     HARI-KARI (73-3049) (48-8-0,238) of WAY TO GO! II fought HAZE (82-49272) (30-18-
0,216) of NORTHERN LIGHTS.  HARI-KARI was savagely defeated by HAZE in a popular 4
minute bloody brawl.  On the whole, Hari can count him/her/itself lucky not to have
died.  The impulse was there, I could see it.  Actually, Haze should count himself
lucky, too--that Hari didn't impale himself on the sword.  Sometimes people get too
carried away by their arena names, and then... just carried away.
     TABBY (82-29373) (27-10-0,252) of FELINES fought CRUMBSNATCHER (72-1842) (57-34-
1,205) of ONE GOOD DUDE.  TABBY was overcome by CRUMBSNATCHER in an exciting 2 minute
contest.  Exciting is a mild word for that one.  Ever trie to take crumbs from a
determined cat?  Unless you have to, just leave be, is my advice.

The challenges:
     ACE FREHLEY (47-3669) (12-9-0,65) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged QUEEN (75-3316) (15-
6-1,65) of KIWI CONNECTIONS.  Straight across.  ACE FREHLEY overpowered QUEEN in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge match.  Yet another Queen, this one...
standing on her head?  I'm not getting that.
     THE LION KING (47-6360) (21-7-0,86) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged WATERLOO (75-3317)
(23-1-1,89) of KIWI CONNECTIONS.  Up 3.  THE LION KING defeated WATERLOO in an action
packed 3 minute gory Challenge match.  The Lion King is doubly a king, so he HAD to
win.
     STINGRAY (30-2264) (34-34-0,166) of STEEL BLADES challenged ROXANNE DE'MORRE
(50-3449) (48-50-0,182) of DRUID'S GROVE.  Up 16.  STINGRAY was vanquished by ROXANNE
DE'MORRE in a 2 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  Sorry, I blinked during this one.
Yes, I know it was two minutes and that's a long blink, but I had something in my
eye.  Probably a gnat.
     NUMBSKULL (52-2948) (15-5-2,180) of OTTO'S PARTS challenged GABBER KNIGHT (77-
2243) (14-1-0,180) of 500 BPM.  Straight across.  NUMBSKULL vanquished GABBER KNIGHT
in a popular 1 minute uneven Challenge duel.  What surprises me is that this was
counted as uneven.  Gabber must've fallen asleep on the job.
     BULL FROG (73-4547) (32-15-0,168) of THE BULLS challenged TUNDRA (45-4280) (34-
25-1,176) of ARCTIC WASTES.  Up 8.  BULL FROG slimly lost to TUNDRA in an action
packed 4 minute gruesome Challenge fight.  And the Frog isn't even slim!  How does he
do that?  Or is it Tundra that's supposed to be slim?

     WYNETT (30-2340) (47-42-2,198) of STEEL BLADES challenged AVONSIDE (13-3927)
(50-61-1,210) of KIWI CONNECTION.  Up 12.  WYNETT was devastated by AVONSIDE in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge match.  There are days like this, and this was obviously
NOT Wynett's good-luck day.  Another time... who knows?
     JIVE (25-624) (105-67-1,200) of CRYPTICS challenged RAVISHING REDBUD (52-3197)
(46-19-0,209) of FLOWER GIRLS.  Up 9.  JIVE demolished RAVISHING REDBUD in a 6 minute
mismatched Challenge competition.  Redbud may have ended up on the bottom, but I'm
sure she enjoyed it anyway.  And NO, I am not going to make all the... comments that
the scribes suggested!  They're... out of line.
     MISS ZING (8-824) (69-51-3,220) of LADIES IN WAITING challenged MAD CAT (7-2965)
(72-51-6,231) of INSP GADGETS MINIONS.  Up 11.  MISS ZING viciously subdued MAD CAT
in a popular 5 minute gory Challenge contest.  This is what any woman would do to a
cat who has had the effrontery to rip up some of the finest silk upholstery to
sharpen his claws.  There are whetstones for that, Mad.
     LAND OF FLUSH (11-4373) (31-19-0,211) of CONSORTIUM CRAP challenged ASHAR (30-
1777) (55-46-3,219) of STEEL BLADES.  Up 8.  LAND OF FLUSH was demolished by ASHAR in
a popular 2 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  Whoa, flushed away!  These flash
floods can be amazingly narrow and strong.

For the title:
     DUTCH TREAT (26-1841) (132-38-2,388) of WORLDWIDE GORE challenged MOSGIEL (14-
3836) (46-30-2,241) of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  Down 147, I think.  Somewhere around that,
anyway.  DUTCH TREAT unbelievably bested MOSGIEL in a 5 minute Challenge Title fight.
I don't see what was so unbelievable about this fight, but regardless, there IS the
fight.  Congratulations to Dutch Treat, who remains our top gladiator.

Karatia -- Ho-hum.  When do our treats arrive? -- Tabby

Gabber Knight and Mosgiel -- We aren't gonna play if you don't treat us right. --

Only a 4-2, Crip.  That's all we could do.  But we are prepping for both Milwaukee
and the later ADM "Wars." -- The Consortium Elders

I hate it when I miss a turn.  But the squad should be back on the sands this go

Consortium Elders -- I suppose so.  I understand that the "internet company" involved
uses carrier pigeons to make their deliveries, and NOW, the carrier pigeons are
dropping from heat stroke.  It's just one thing after another. -- Amelia

Godsmack -- It's like I was born to do that.  Very strange experience.  Maybe a kind
of possession. -- Ghost Dancer

Paraldoxia -- Figures.  I wasn't even supposed to be fighting here 
today.  Oh, well. -- Lilas Keeler
