Presents and Weapons
Now it is time to address a matter a few candidates have been asking about.
Yes, we shuddered in fear too Candidate, don’t be ashamed.
Presents are not to be brought to this occasion. You are fighting for team, honor and pride. You are also probably fighting towards a watery death.
It is true that dinner and cake will be served before, however this does not mean that you are to bring such disgusting pleasantries as presents.
That is not the purpose of this gathering. Don’t do it.
Another matter, which we will now choose to bring to your attention, is your weapon. Each member of both teams is going to be presented a water gun four days prior to the match. This will give members a chance to decorate, paint and just generally customize their gun to show that it is theirs.
Stickers, paint and anything you can stick on is allowed, however modifications to the operations of these guns is strictly prohibited.
If these guns are broken or unable to be used on the night we do not have spares. Unfortunately we are required to trust you to ensure the safety of these guns and we cannot stress how important it is that they come with you to the battle.
If your weapon is broken or forgotten then there is no reason for you to arrive at the battle at all. On the night you will be required to present your weapon at the door as proof that you were invited. We realize this is harsh but you must know how important it is to take care of your weapon.
Ensure to check this newsletter on April 1stas it will contain a final list of all rules and a list of all members of your team. We encourage you to continue conversing with teammates, especially after this.
Maps to the University will also be posted for candidates that have not been there before.

My superiors have informed me of a ceasefire and peace treaty that will occur after the match. You have all been invited to stay the night at Kerris’ house after the battle’s conclusion.
Please note that any male candidates would be sleeping either in the downstairs section of the house or on the roof, depending on how merciful my superiors are. If you are interested then confirm with parental units before informing us of your stance on this.
My superiors are making it very clear that no ‘funny business’ will occur after retiring hours and are expressing to me that odd precautions will be taking place. Have you ever seen my mother unit? Well, she seemed inclined to sleep across the top of the stairs to limit any kind of mixed gender candidate activity. Most frightening. Or amusing. Depending on who you are.
If you do come please note that sleeping bags, pillows and blow up mattresses would be highly recommended because, while the Davies unit does have some resources, there will be a maximum total of 18 teenage candidates. We do not even think that some hotels would be prepared to take on such a task. Especially you, Candidate. Yes, I mean you. No, don’t act offended we know you’re taking it as a compliment on the inside.
That is all, once again Kerris is available on facebook and the number provided in the first post.

We appreciate the obvious enthusiasm you all have shown towards the great battle. Our numbers are accurate and now we can elaborate on the rules that will allow our war to function smoothly.
Like any game of capture the flag your battlefield will be split into two, one half belongs to you candidate, and the other to your enemies. On each side there will be one flag, your main purpose is to capture this flag and bring it to your own base.
Now candidate, we realize that the prospect of two teams running back and forth aimlessly without any kind of elimination system is rather boring. However, because the fight needs to progress in an orderly fashion players will not be eliminated but set back.
Let us explain. Where the territories of Liguamen Iuguolo and Silens Nex meet there is a great divider line. When you are shot you must cross the line and if you are carrying the flag you must ensure that you have handed it over to your opponents before your return.
Also, ‘puppy guarding’ the dividing line is shameful Candidate and not allowed. You are like death. Death does not stand in front of its victim, letting them know of its presence. No, you must be like death and strike them unawares.
The ownership of these territories will be decided on the night of war, to ensure as much fairness as possible. We will use a highly complicated mechanism, which will accurately give an equal chance to both teams to receive a certain piece of land. Basically, a coin.
Finally, we have found a slight issue in certain uniforms. Do you recall when we specified ‘ninja attire’? We hope you do, that message was important. Ninja attire does not include white clothing; this is not a wet t-shirt contest Candidate. We did not invite you to come and ogle team members from either side in wet clothing.
That is all for now, if you have any questions be sure to contact Kerris.

Use this symbol to know your team mates.

You have been chosen to join Libramen Iuguolo. We are the poised killers, efficient and relentless when moving towards our goal.
"What is our goal?" You ask. It is simply to find and capture our enemies flag. Our enemies will not be made known to you until the night of our great battle. We can only tell you their name: Silens Nex
The battle is not until the 8th of April, this should give you ample time to prepare your uniform. You must come dressed for stealth, for the battle occurs that night. We suggest general ninja attire.
Do not be concerned about your weapons, we will provide those for you. Unfortunately our battle cannot be as violent as we wish within the constraints of the law, so water and plastic must suffice for this great occasion. Be sure that your uniform is not too valuable to you or hot as you will be operating outside and most probably going to get very wet.
This is not the time for humor Candidate, please read on.
You should know Candidate, that there are others on your team, you are not to take on this task alone. Over the next month it will be good for you to try and know your team mates, however you must be discrete so that the members of the other side do not who the opposition is. I am the only one who knows everyone that is invited to this battle, that is the way it should stay. If your enemies know you then they know your team’s weaknesses.
If you are able to attend please notify me at 050-155-9360. Or on facebook if you can’t reach me. As the time for war grows closer updates will be posted here, so ensure that you check occasionally. Items such as a map to our location and any extra rules shall be added here.
We hope that you will be able to attend,
