                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly BLACKSTONE games.  Former top team FINGER LICKIN was 
unseated this week as FEAR FACTORY 21 moved up from 13th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-0-0 record for the round.  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to 
compare with FEAR FACTORY 21's team record!  A 2-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 
1st place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of BEING THERE.  How 
else weeks like this one's 3-0-1?  How else the sudden move to 2nd team?  The 
proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with BASHUR BRIGADE 2.0's team 
record!  A 3-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 6th place ranking.  I have begun to 
suspect trickery on the part of N.W.A..  How else weeks like this one's 1-1-0?  How 
else the sudden move to 9th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to 
compare with 80'S MUSIC's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 16th 
place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of HOME BREWS.  How else 
weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 22nd team?  SPIRIT'S 
SPIRITS bore the brunt of major assault on their standings this week as they dropped 
to 24th position as the result of going 0-1-0!  The proverbial rising comet can only 
hope to compare with THE STONES' team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 
27th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of SOUP FORCES 2.  
How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 28th team?  My 
tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This 
week SKATE DRAGONS! went 2-2-0 and fell 21 notches into 33rd!  SOME OLD B bore the 
brunt of major assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 34th position 
as the result of going 0-1-0!  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare 
with WEARY TUNE's team record!  A 1-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 37th place 
ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of SUHT YOURSELF.  How else 
weeks like this one's 1-3-0?  How else the sudden move to 38th team?  The proverbial 
rising comet can only hope to compare with PINKEST OF FLOYD's team record!  A 2-3-0 
week and now a firm grasp on a 39th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery 
on the part of THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else 
the sudden move to 55th team?  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you 
rise the harder you fall.  This week 80S MOVIES went 1-0-0 and fell 35 notches into 
64th!  3 FLOYDS BREWING bore the brunt of major assault on their standings this week 
as they dropped to 67th position as the result of going 0-1-0!  My tutors were fond 
of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week Y ME? went 
0-1-0 and fell 14 notches into 68th!  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to 
compare with FAMILY PETS' team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 69th 
place ranking.  FEAR FACTORY 20 bore the brunt of major assault on their standings 
this week as they dropped to 71st position as the result of going 0-1-0!  My tutors

SHOPPING 2 went 0-1-0 and fell 44 notches into 72nd!  FEAR FACTORY 15 bore the brunt

into 84th!  THE MOTHERSHIP AG bore the brunt of major assault on their standings this 
week as they dropped to 85th position as the result of going 1-3-0!  The proverbial 
rising comet can only hope to compare with CONFUSION's team record!  A 1-3-0 week and 
now a firm grasp on a 86th place ranking.  My tutors were fond of telling me that the 
higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week THE DONALD went 0-2-0 and fell 16 
notches into 87th!  INNERVISIONS bore the brunt of major assault on their standings 
this week as they dropped to 95th position as the result of going 0-1-0!  AMBROSIA 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested CALM 
BOMB and was awarded 63 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, MEGA GATOR VS PREDAT put down BLOODBATH & BEYOND, causing him to lose 16 
points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, LAST WISH has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail CONSPIRACY, Duelmaster of BLACKSTONE!  Informants 
"close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on 
beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In BLACKSTONE "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  BLACKSTONE, city of gladiators!  Mighty among 
the names of thy guilds is COVERING GROUND, a guild shunned and avoided by many in 
the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of Q-SCHOOL are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  BUTTE PIRATE take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in BLACKSTONE.  CONSPIRACY must really be harboring 
a grudge against the INNERVISIONS guild!  Merciless, 42 challenged down VISIONS 
points this week to duel with he.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout 
as VISIONS was beat by CONSPIRACY.  Is this what passes for courage in BLACKSTONE?  
For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how 
QUAGMIRE of Q-SCHOOL challenged down 17 points to FRITO.  An upset indeed!  QUAGMIRE 
found itself outmatched as it lost to FRITO.  There is no place left further down for 
QUAGMIRE but the burial mound!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  BUTTE PIRATE has the town astir with the news of his Dark 
Arena victory!  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape the vagaries of this world.  
This week arena veteran CALM BOMB was slain, despite a 26-14-0 record.  Death has 
again visited the sands of our arena.  AMBROSIA has claimed the life of CALM BOMB.  
Do any doubt that BATTLE OF LA will seek a bloody revenge?  Cruelly, HEY BUDDY of NU 
BLU has slain the lesser ranked HEMLOCK.  Word already flies around town that FEAR 
FACTORY 20 plans a bloodfeud!  This week's duel proved deadly to FLUKY LUMMOX as he 
fell to the more renowned warrior, DIAMOND SHARK.  How will THIRSTY THUGS 1414 find 
revenge?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

                          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.
