Here's the thread where we'll be discussing all news relevant to AmaDome.

For example, I will continue to challenge Stephen King to a match via twitter.

Now for some real news!

Slight rule change starting with Arena IV
Now, not only will the stories be posted without the gladiator's name until voting is over, but the gladiators themselves will not know who they are up against.


Also, it looks like rain here.

We have a gift card donation to give away as a prize. I will set up the tournament to begin in December. All gladiators can participate.

I didn't realize that the gladiators knew who their opponents were before.

Okay. We interrupt you're regularly scheduled arena to bring you this special AmaDOME! report.

AmaDome is pleased to announce the "Last Writer Standing" match.

Gladiators participate in a ladder tournament. The winner of each round advances. Until the finals.
So far, we have a $100.00 Amazon Gift certificate promised to the winner! There may be more prizes for second place or a larger first place prize or that may be it. Don't be greedy.

The rules:

Same as with the AmaDome Arena contests. Gladiators are notified by email of the genre. Stories are sent to me. I post them when ready. Everyone votes. Winner is declared.

Here's what's different. I won't announce who wrote anything until after the entire contest is over. Then I'll post the appropriate acknowledgments, links, etc.

I'll be notifying all gladiators of this by email. If you haven't played but want to enter, let me know. If you have played but want to pass, let me know. Gladiators, if you don't get an email from me by Monday, let me know. I may have forgotten you.

I'd like to start the contest on or about December 1. Accordingly, all normal arena activity will be temporarily suspended after the polls close on Arena V. That's it! Good luck.

It looks like there will be a second prize of an Amazon $20.00 gift card for second place!

Today, I am putting together the list of gladiators. I'll send an email out later. If you receive nothing from me by tomorrow and you want to play, email me to confirm your gladiator status.

As it stands, we now have three prizes donated:
1st Place $100.00
2nd Place $30.00

All very generous. Patrons of the Arts receive front row seats to all arenas.

I plan on sending out writing assignments this Friday. Unlike previous matches, I'll probably have more than one Arena running at the same time, so keep your eyes open. Sorry for the delay, but I'm trying to get a few more players and I also need to make sure everyone is on board with the game at the same time, so it takes a little bit more preparation.

I'll also be sending out special interview questions to the players and be featuring gladiators on my blog, and probably somewhere on this forum as well.


Because there's not much on TV these days.

Holy buckets, that is no lie. I hate reality tv.

Kudos to AmaDome's Patrons of the Arts:

Lil Devil: first prize sponser
Matthew Fish and Toby: Second Prize Sponsors.

Looks like we have a tournament!

Assignments are going out today, gladiators are girthing their loins, and the Arenas all have fresh sand. Arenas I and II should be up and running no later than Monday.

Gladiators, if you didn't receive a general email from earlier today, let me know.

Splinker says:
We actually have 13 players now. I need at least one more to even things out. Otherwise, I may have to randomly assign a "buy" to someone, which I would rather not do.
