                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome NIANIA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SPRING CHICKEN? 
She actually beat THE RUNAROUND's PANDARAMA, and walked away with 16 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at FAVORITE SAYINGS while they watched SPRING CHICKEN 
clobber PANDARAMA.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Try as he might, COOL RUN-IN wasn't good enough at persuading ACCUSED FAUN 
to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of NIANIA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Who can join?  Anyone with a team in Arvat as of 2/1/2018.

When does it start?  First turn due after 2/1/2018.

How long does it run? 13 turns.

How do I join?  Announce your manager name and team name in the Arvat newsletter prior 
to 2/1/2017 and state that you are entering the contest.  Prior to the contest 
actually starting you need to have 2 rollup certs sent to the Dark One care of RSI.

How do I win the contest? The team which has accrued the most points as of the end of 
the 13th turn is the winner.  The team which has the 2nd most points is declared the 
runner up.  And the team which has the 3rd most points is declared honorable 
contender.  Everyone else is a loser and should be ridiculed.

How do I score points?

1)  Every challenge you win vs. another team in the contest = 10 points, as long as 
    that challenge is to a warrior equal to or above yours in the rankings.  Except 
    for the Duelmaster who can challenge anyone he wants.

2)  You also earn bonus points for every challenge won.  For every point of 
    recognition your target is ranked above you, you earn one bonus point.  This is 
    for challenges only.

3)  If you are challenged by a warrior below you and defeat him, you will gain 5 

4)  Also every random matchup against a contest team that you win will earn you 5 
    points -- up or down.

5)  You CAN downchallenge, however you get no points for doing so, and if you are 
    beaten, your opponent will earn 10 points and the right to ridicule you in the 

6)  Bloodfeud challenges count just like regular challenges during the contest.

7)  In addition there are the following bonus points that are awarded each turn:

    A)  Duelmaster earns 10 points

    B)  Graduating a warrior earns 10 points

    C)  Recognition Leader (Chartered or Unchartered) earns 5 points (if the 
        Duelmaster is the recognition leader as well, then only the DM points apply)

    D)  Popularity Leader earns 5 points

    E)  Turn's most popular earns 5 points

    F)  Top team on the move earns 5 points

    G)  Current Top team earns 10 points

    H)  Any warrior that earns a Tournament Champion in either the April Mail In or 
        July FTF tournament earns 20 points

    I)  Any warrior that earns a Tournament Victor in either of those tournaments 
        earns 10 points

    J)  Note that Top Chartered and Unchartered team awards do NOT earn points

What are the rules regarding other teams in the arena?  If you challenge any warriors 
not participating in the contest you LOSE 20 points, unless the challenged warrior is 
the Duelmaster.  If any manager has a 2nd (or 3rd) team in the arena they may NOT 
challenge any warrior of any team participating in the contest or they are 

What do I win if I win this contest? 

1)  The winner wins all of the rollup certificates given as entry fee for the contest.  
    In addition, the winner gets to pick 3 of the prizes below.

2)  The runner up gets to pick 2 of the prizes below.

3)  The honorable contender gets to pick one of the prizes below.

In addition, all competitors in the contest who run all 13 turns and at least 62 total 
fights will earn 1 potion of +1 bonus, which must be used on a warrior who 
participated at least 1 fight in the contest.  

Also, the team that scores the most points on any one turn of the contest (other than 
the winner, runner up or honorable contender) can pick one prize that was NOT selected 
by those three.


1)  Limited stat switch (You can swap any 2 stats you want on an Arvat replacement 
    rollup that you received within the next 6 month)

2)  Extra replacements (Next time you get a replacement (or whenever you want within 6 
    months) in Arvat you can ask RSI for 5 additional replacements and select the best 
    one for your team)

3)  Limited damage bump (You can pick one warrior on your Arvat team to move up one 
    damage class -- as long as he remains in-bounds for his ST/SZ stats)

4)  Favorite weapon knowledge (You learn the favorite weapon of one of your Arvat 
    warriors -- must be on the team during the contest)

5)  Favorite rhythm knowledge (You learn the favorite offensive effort and activity 
    level of one of your Arvat warriors, who most have been on your team during the 

6)  Shrinking potion (You get to take 3 points of size away from an Arvat replacement 
    during the next 6 months and add the 3 points to another stat -- both SZ and the 
    other stat must remain in bounds)

7)  Extra skills (Any one of your warriors in Arvat learns 3 extra skills of your 
    choice (no more than 2 can be in the same area and must be in bounds)

8)  Extra train (Any one of your Arvat warriors gets an extra stat train in the area 
    of your choice -- and must be in bounds)

9)  The Dark One's Massive Rollup prize (You get 50 team sheets, at random, from the 
    Dark One's massive pile of teams.  Most will be mediocre at best, but there are 
    plenty of decent to good warrior prospects in there!)

All prizes must be applied within 6 months from the end of the tournament, must be on 
Arvat warriors on the team that participated in the contest and must be in bounds.
