Description

Welcome to the world of Play-by-Mail games produced by Reality Simulations, Inc. Duel2 is a Play-by-Mail game of ancient gladiatorial combat. If you're new to Play-by-Mail gaming, just think or it as a chance to play some of the most realistic and exciting games you will ever come across. Every two weeks, you'll be matching your skills and ingenuity against players from all across the North American continent and beyond. True to our name, our computer-moderated games allow us to closely simulate reality. In Duel2, the first of our games set in the fantastic world of Alastari, you will experience the reality of man-to-man combat in far greater depth than you will find even in role playing games.

Your strategies will be pitted against the strategies of your opponents and the results of each fight determined impartially by computer. And, since our computers are doing all the detail work, you will only have to command your warriors... and then watch as the results come back to you with the detail of a blow-by-blow narrative -- a story you helped write! Each player manages a team of five gladiators, training, developing, and fighting each warrior toward the title of Duelmaster, the feared and honored Champion of the Games. Your exploits, as well as those of your enemies and allies, will be covered in a free newsletter. The newsletter not only lets you know who won or lost, and lists the rankings of every warrior in the arena, but also features regular strategy columns that provide information and hints of winning. There's even space in the newsletter for personal ads between warriors!

We invite you to try Duel2. Both rules and set-up are free and without obligation, and turn fees are only US$3.25 + US$1.50 for each gladiator that you enter into combat. While you set up a full team of five warriors, you may fight some, all, or none of your warriors on any given turn. You only pay for what you play.

Again, the rules are free, as will be the initial character overviews (sentence descriptions of your warrior's strengths and weaknesses) and Duel2 Battle Rules you receive upon training your gladiators. Duel2 is easy to play, yet is filled with a surprising depth of strategy to keep even the most demanding gamer interested. Don't delay your entry into the exciting world of Duel2 and Play-by-Mail gaming.

Good luck in the games! -- RSI
