Genesis, the god of timeto Everyone

As of today we have begin the duellist experiment. Duellist status is now

available to all those Avalonians who wish to seek partial protection from

its somewhat restrictive, but not entirely pacifist nature. Duellists are

able to fight and use their skills freely, save where the duellist status

may give unfair advantage against those who are restricted from attack and

yet affected by duellist action. See HELP DUELLISTS for further information,

and type DDW to see a list of those duellists presently visible in the land.

Feel free to ask me any questions about this directly, make comments,

criticisms and suggestions either to me when you see me around or via

e-mail to genesis@avalon-rpg.com. No doubt we will have some teething

problems with abuses and workarounds over the next week but these will

be address promptly and, ultimately, we will give Duellist Status a few

weeks of proper testing once we're satisfied any loopholes are closed to

judge its impact on the land and its inhabitants. Thus, keep your

feedback coming thick and fast.
