                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in DRAGONHEAD this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  Now, what did these guys have for breakfast 
this morning?  BASH BROS TREES has turned a 1-0-0 into 19th place from 35th.  Give me 
the recipe!  I want to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Warty 
Toad, seeing as FEAR FACTORY 3's 4-10-0 has earned them 21st place in the ranks.  I 
understand that The Warty Toad is buying the drinks for FEAR FACTORY 4 tonight, to 
honor their rise to 26th after this turns 1-0-0.  Hmmm.  Now keep the taverns open 
late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for BB JUNK EMAIL, whose 0-0-0 this turn 
dropped them by 9 into 25th.  And let's see, ETERNAL REST fought PAY PER SECOND and 
gained 28 points and contributed to FEAR FACTORY 2's 2-0-0.  TURNED OFF has lost to 
VENEMOUS CONCUBINE, falling 23 points, while helping make BASH BROS GAS a 1-1-0 turn. 
Defending his title for another turn, XIAHOU DUN kept BASH BROS TIRES' warrior, MR 
RIGHT HANDED, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the OUTLAWS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on DRAGONHEAD, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding OUTLAWS more than any other team we find BASH BROS NEW CAR.  DRAGONHEAD, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take 
notice that WARLOCK from OUTLAWS was DRAGONHEAD's most challenged warrior this turn.  
WARLOCK from OUTLAWS took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 57 points in a 
challenge against FORMS.  And now nobody knows where FORMS is right now, after giving 
WARLOCK 43 points worth of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind me.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in 
DRAGONHEAD today as FORMS was bid farewell to a 14-3-0 warrior, with WARLOCK of 
OUTLAWS standing silent and pensive.  The manager of BASH BROS NEW CAR will not be 
pleased to learn that PUSHY SALESMAN, a 3-1-0 fighter, has been killed at the hands 
of DEADLY RAGE's LITHIUM.  Whatever bright future JUDGE JUDY RIPOFFS may have had, 
it's all history now.  The manager of BB DAYTIME TV has lost a promising 3-1-0 
warrior.  This is the stuff legends are made of.  WARLOCK has killed FORMS, a 14-3-0 
warrior of BASH BROS DMV.  I hear OUTLAWS welcomes a bloodfeud challenge.  Anyone 
care to tell me why the warriors of BB JUNK EMAIL haven't revenged the death of 419 
against WARLOCK of OUTLAWS yet?  Hmmm?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, 
he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in DRAGONHEAD again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

                          MAKING YOUR CHALLENGES GO THROUGH

     First, you need to be sure you are making your challenges correctly.
     1.  Are you writing down the warrior I.D. number of the warrior you want to 
challenge?
     2.  Is your handwriting clear?
     3.  Is the warrior you are challenging within range of your warrior?  Warriors 
can challenge within their own class and the next higher class, plus the "Challenger" 
classes can also challenge the next lower class.  So, an Adept can challenge Adepts 
and Challenger Adepts.  A Challenger Adept can challenge Adepts, Challenger Adepts, 
and Champions.  (Try not to challenge down, though.  Besides being unsportsmanlike and 
making everyone mad, it isn't advantageous to your warriors.  They need to fight more 
experienced warriors so they will learn.)
     4.  Are your warriors eligible to make challenges?  If they didn't fight within 
the last two turns, then they can't challenge.
     5.  Are the warriors they want to fight eligible to receive challenges?  If they 
didn't fight within the last two turns, then they can't be challenged.

     Next, adjust your choices for the maximum likelihood of getting your challenges.  
There are several things that will help:
     1.  Have each of your warriors challenge two different opponents from two 
different teams.  That way, if the first opponent's team doesn't fight that turn, you 
still might get your second challenge.
     2.  Use your avoids.  Have each warrior avoid the teams of whoever you think 
might be likely to challenge him.  If you can get out of being challenged, that 
increases your chance of getting your own challenge through.
     3.  Don't challenge warriors who didn't fight last turn.  The odds are higher 
that they won't be fighting this turn.
     4.  Don't challenge warriors who might be involved in a bloodfeud (either as the 
killers, or the avengers).  A bloodfeud challenge has priority over all other 
challenges.
     5.  Don't challenge Tournament Victors.  A TV challenge has priority over all 
other challenges except bloodfeuds.  You'll need to do a little research in back 
issues of the newsletter to find out who the TVs are.
     6.  Don't challenge warriors who you know are going to challenge someone else, or 
are going to get challenged by someone else.  Your challenge has a better chance of 
getting through if it is the only challenge to that particular warrior.
     7.  Don't challenge the "easy pickings."  That is, warriors above you who have 
way too few fights or very bad records for where they are ranked.  They will tend to 
get challenged a lot.
     8.  Don't challenge warriors who are likely to be avoiding your team.  This 
includes any warrior your team fought within the last two turns.
     Well, it sounds like I've eliminated just about everybody, doesn't it?  Of course 
you can challenge opponents who fit into one or more of those categories; just try to 
find ones who don't.  Your idea candidate for a challenge is:  A warrior ranked 
somewhat above your warrior in the same class, or in the next higher class, with a few 
more fights than your warrior, and a winning record, who isn't a TV and isn't 
currently at war with anyone.
     I hope this will be of some help to you.
