                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon OSKSI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of 
laughing at jokes, observe ASTRAL KIN.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 5!  Good 
things come to those who fight well, as BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES can attest, moving up by 
0.  I doubt many are quaking in their boots, but GORMENGHAST comes out of nowhere to 
get 4-1-2.  What does the future hold?  Watch this space...  Practice pays for ALTUN 
HA, who pummelled FUNGARI, to pocket 29 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, ALTUN HA was winsome, after beating FUNGARI and seeing her lose 20 points.  
Now I can't insult PETE HARNISCH, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great 
new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE BALROGS, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, SIMPLY DESSERTS scurried away from THE BALROGS. 
Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, STEVE SAX could open up a fast food joint! 
Call 'im brash!  Call 'im brassy!  Call 'im brave!  Call 'im sassy!  STEVE SAX will 
face QUICKSAND, up by 28.  Aaaah, just call 'im dead meat.  The gods smiled upon 
STEVE SAX, in his upset fight against QUICKSAND.  STEVE SAX gets a win, 9 points, and 
a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?)  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in OSKSI is the highlight of my life.  My fingers tire 
and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid OSKSI 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

David Cone -- All that stuff about good pitching beats good hitting?  Throw out
everything you've ever heard from an analyst.  The bottom line is that every at bat
starts the count clean and it's your stuff against mine! -- Stan, The Man

Go Fish -- Actually, the whole point WAS to let you win a couple, give you a false
sense of security, and then come out swinging hard when we actually put money on the
game.  Making you think I don't know the rules (picking up attack and parry) is all
part of the plan. -- The Man

Terry -- If I ever face you in this league, you can bet I'm gonna have the umpire
watching you closely.  You don't really think you're fooling anyone, do you?  You

don't get handed around the league without discretion because you're a super star!
It is only because there is such a lack of talent and the fact that you're actually a
south paw that you're still pitching at all.  13-0--yeah right! -- The Man

Sandman -- You...you cleaned out my hand!  I've got nothing left but fours! -- Go
Fish, dismayed

Bud Smith -- Tcha.  But the bedrest was good. -- SimEarth

Mary Retzlaff -- I don't find you anywhere on my chart, ma'am.  Are you sure you're
real? -- Graph

Deeann Rakovich -- That was an underhanded move, woman!  The way you got my attention
on, ahem, other things, and then kicked the ball right past me.  I protest! -- The

To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.
                               --*  The Firm *--
                    Sungod -- Sadists F2FII -- 62
                    Dark Spirit -- Unknowns XX -- 15
                    Youngblood -- Wensinwasin -- 43
                    Tripwire -- Of Wolf and Man -- 1

     Citizens of Alastari, a bright dawn has risen.  While you slept, a pernicious
force has entered the once-fair City of Aruak.  It fought alongside their treasured
warriors, it drank with their fans, and it slept with their women.  Now the masks are
coming off.
     Warriors, be afraid...be very afraid.  After years of Andorian managers ranting
that Aruak is the safest city in Alastari, the Frothingslosh Syndicate has selected
Aruak City as the home for its next epic 'contest'--Murder by Numbers II.  Our spies
have selected the warriors for extermination, and the executioners have had several
months to prepare.  Now a new age of darkness will descend upon Aruak, as the
Syndicate and its allies bring an entirely new level of competition to the arena!
Downchallenges!  Assassinations!  Small poodles as hors d'oeuvres!
     The Murder by Numbers II 'rules' will be announced next cycle.  However, we
invite all managers, from all corners of Alastari, to come to Aruak City and take
part...in one way or another.  Help defend the honor of a long heralded haven for the
pure, or join the forces of change in their siege of the ice-cream and cake
stronghold of the Dukes of Nerf-Dueling!
     This exercise is not for either the faint of heart or the weak willed.  Blood
will flow, brains will leak, and beer will be chugged.  Either way, we welcome you
with open arms and gleaming blades.
     This public service announcement has been brought to you by Frothingslosh Epic
Contests (tm), the number 86, and the letter 'K'.

           *     *     *     *The Third Annual Turf War*     *     *     *
     Yes, it's time again for alliances to go to war!  TW3 will be held in DM 47

(North Fork) at a date to be  specified later--right after Crip's Incomprehensible
Contest is over...but I'm sure everyone wants to get their teams there soon!  Here
are the rules:

1.  Each alliance must have a leader declare the arrival of his alliance.  The leader
    will be responsible for verifying any and all teams/managers who declare to the
    alliance he/she is leading.
2.  Each manager, team declaring for the contest must have approval of the leader,
    donate one Roll-up Certificate ($5) to the prize pot (send it to me by diplo, by
    snail, or a note to customer service), and declare his/her team by diplo, p-ad or
    snail.
3.  Each team may declare one warrior as champion.  All points scored by a champ are
    double!
4.  Prizes are as follows (mostly...there WILL be some things added as the prize pot
    grows with entry donations--this list is not final!)
    *  Highest scoring alliance -- Rename Arena 47 for a period of 6 months, one half
       of the total prize pot donated; roll-up certs.
    *  The Alliance with the most returns from the DA will get to re-name the DA
       monsters for a period of 6 months.
    *  The alliance with the most warriors listed as style masters will get to pick
       the Alastari city/arena to host the next Grand Tournament.
    *  The warrior with the most front page honors/awards will have the Arenamaster
       named after him for a period of 6 months.
    *  The Alliance with the most front page Honors/Awards will have the honor of
        picking the *slow* arena to host the Fifth Annual Turf War.
    *  The team with the most listings as Style Master will find out the favorites of
       one of their warriors.
    *  The warrior with the most listings as Style Master will fight at my expense
       for five turns (I will transfer to the manager's account).
    *  The Alliance with the most kills will be able to re-name the stand-in warriors
       for a period of 6 months.
    *  The warrior that scores the most total points will fight at my expense for 5
       turns (I will transfer $7.50 to the manager's account).
    *  The team that scores the most total points will receive an extra share of
       roll-up certs from the prize pot.
     There may be more categories to come, and the prize pot still has to be
divided...I'm open to category/prize ideas--and further donations to the prize pot.
     The contest will run for *TEN* turns; prizes will be awarded at the end of the
11th turn.
     Scoring will be as follows:
* 5 points per fight, doubled for each of the following conditions met:
     -- Two Alliance     -- Champion
     -- Challenge        -- Two Champions
     -- Bloodfeud        -- Challenger losing
     -- Kill
     (Note:  DA losses are exempt, but DA wins will be *tripled*!!!  Ex:  Happy
Slasher goes to the DA and dies, no points are lost.  If he wins, his team scores 60
points!  If he was a champ, he scores 120 points!)
     Use the following chart to calculate scores:
Conditions Met:       0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7
Points Per Fight:     5    10    20    40    80   160   320   640
* Awards/Honors and Style Masters will each be awarded points also.  Find the total
number of each (do note add Awards and Style Masters together) and consult the graph
below.  Champs that score an award or style master count as two.
     1 --   5      7 --  320
     2 --  10      8 --  640
     3 --  20      9 -- 1280
     4 --  40     10 -- 2560
     5 --  80     11 -- 5280
     6 -- 100     (x2 for each extra)
Note -- These categories *count as "triple"*--they will be figured for each team,
*AND* again for each alliance *as well as* for each warrior!
*  Each and every mention in the Spy Report is worth 5 points...period.
*  TVs will be scored on the same scale as Awards/Style Masters, but the total points
will be x10.  TC's will be scored as TV's, but x10 more.
Number of TV/TC's          Points Scored (TV/TC)
     1      50/ 500
     2     100/1000
     3     200/2000
     4     400/4000
     +     x2/ x2 (for each extra)
     Each alliance will start with 5000 points, scores for *fights* will be added to
the winner's total *AND* deducted from the losers.
     Come  one and all, defend your turf and the honor of your alliance...or your
own!
