                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Good things come to those who fight well, as VEGGIES can attest, moving 
up by 0.  Practice pays for HEARTS, who pummelled AEGIS, to pocket 18 points.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, HEARTS was winsome, after beating AEGIS and 
seeing him lose 15 points.  BRUENOR found out that OSKSI isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in OSKSI is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of AESIR, alone and unchallenged.  The warriors 
of AESIR found their efforts at combat frustrated as VEGGIES apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, NOT HOYLE could open 
up a fast food joint!  Take heed OSKSI, of the unprincipled action of GREEN BEAN.  By 
challenging DEWEY, 23 points below him, GREEN BEAN besmirches the noble art of 
dueling.  GREEN BEAN won victory over DEWEY with a point difference of 23.  So this 
is what OSKSI calls a duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  Them's the breaks, 
JOKER.  Expecting fair challenges from VEGGIES is evidently too much to ask.  
Warriors of OSKSI!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base challenge of 
SQUASH?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in OSKSI is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  OSKSI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Elefont.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Here's hoping I can repeat my performance in this Halloween tourney.  Assur says fat 
chance, but I'll do my best.  For my next trick, it's time to start thinking about 
Osksi's throne. -- Green Bean

Leftist's Blow -- Hurry up and get this last fight over with and get your butt outta 
here and let someone else (like me) take the throne. -- Green Bean

Dewey -- I'm somewhat impressed, but your mom obviously didn't teach you about 
balanced diets. -- Green Bean

Not Hoyle -- Not at all.  But since you're the only one I can beat around here, let 
the challenges flow. -- Carrot

Joker -- You may be wild, but you can't survive on your own.  I, on the other hand, 
have everything I need to be a basher.  My motto is all in my name. -- Squash

Nick -- Strategy changes!?!  What a concept.  I'm making less and less of them.  Ya 
see, filling out strategy sheets takes time.  And filling out numbers in all those 
little boxes takes more time.  As an up and coming mega-manager, I'm realizing the 
joy and love of maintenance.  And when maintenance doesn't work, writing "SAME" in 
big huge letters is almost as good.  And when that doesn't work, I go and fill in all 
those numbers, but what a pain. -- Assurnasirbanipal

Green Bean -- I could file you in the 500s, but I'd rather use the circular file.  
Not my kind of thing, green beans.  Or any other color.  In fact, come to think of 
it, the green ones are the least offensive.  The spotted ones, now... ugh. -- Dewey
P.S.  Good skills all around, though.

Carrot -- That was NOT the proper behavior for a carrot!  Totally unsuited to your 
nature and station in life.  Your actions, sir, are... Not Hoyle

Wybjorn -- My fans fell silent.  I hate it when that happens. -- The Goalie

Squash -- I thought *I* was supposed to do that to *you*.  Read your script next 
time. -- Joker

Aegis -- Remind me not to wear my heart on my sleeve next time.  That hurts! -- 
Hearts

Assur -- The other members are games and paraphernalia.  *I* am how the library is 
ORGANIZED, and thus considerably more imprtant. -- Dewey, of the famous Decimal 
System

                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
