                              ZalCon 2 Standings, Turn 12

     Well, I have the complete standings this turn again, the Top 20 Warriors and the
Top 12 Teams as well as the Style Master and Iron Manager standings.  It also looks
like we will have the first award determined this coming turn as Stanley's Cup
vacates the throne leaving the inactive warriors Excursion and Arcane Raider as the
only non ZalCon warriors near enough to take it.  Good luck to all those near the
top!  Without further ado here are the standings:

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at MAYAN WHITE left the arena dejected, after being kicked out 
of the top spot by DARK TOADS.  Good show!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  
Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe HITMEN FOR HIRE.  Last week they got 2-3-0 to 
drop by 7!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as SUPERIOR FORCES ZC2 can attest...  Good things come to those who 
fight well, as CLASSIC BLUES can attest, moving up by 3.  PURPLE AND GOLD had cause 
to celebrate, after GEORGE MIKAN got 20 points by beating ROGUE 7.  ROGUE 7 certainly 
had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to GEORGE MIKAN and losing 17 
points in the process!  BRAM DE WAARD found out that JHELUM isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been 
walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     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 PURPLE AND GOLD, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, DIFFERENT HATS scurried away from PURPLE AND 
GOLD.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good 
oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, SPIDER CLAWS is the most challenged warrior.  MUDVAYNE 
challenged PERICLES!  Who says MILLENIUM METAL are just a bunch of wimps!  MUDVAYNE 
of MILLENIUM METAL kept his wits as he subdued PERICLES.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Q:  What's a record like 3-9-1 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  
This week's winner:  SALIVA of MILLENIUM METAL!  Citizens of JHELUM, be sure to 
settle your debts with FLINT of FORCE OF FIVE.  He's relocating to the Dark Arena and 
has other things on his mind!  Death (in the form of CHAOS MAGE of INSANE REIGN) 
knocked on ULTIMATE PAIN's door.  What will LUROCIANS Z2 do?  The suspense is killing 
me.  ULTIMATE PAIN of LUROCIANS Z2 put away CHAOS MAGE of INSANE REIGN.  Let's hope 
Lady Luck continues to smile upon CHAOS MAGE!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and 
restraint, I was pleased to see CLASSIC BLUES retaliate against BLACK & BLUE in 
bloodfeud!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in 
the arena.  A certain tavern in JHELUM would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for JHELUM?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- This didn't print last turn, so here it is again....  Annoying Ellen is a LU
for the competition. -- Force of Five

Zalconners -- Please enter ICBTRISA into the PR stylemaster competition.  (Short for
I Can't Believe This RU Is So Awful.) -- Manager

All -- It is my deepest regrets to have to add Diploma to the contest.  He is a
TP.... -- Papaiz

The Machine -- I suppose that works well enough, if you LIKE the mechanical effect.
It's EFFICIENT enough, the gods know, but where's the grace?  Where's the beauty?
Where's the FLAIR? -- Pericles

Bob's Friend Bob -- I suppose you're related to Bob's friend's sister Bobbie?  (eager
look)  Could you get me an introduction? -- Dogface

White Wizard -- (stiffly)  I DO choose to believe that you knew EXACTLY what you were
doing when you beat up a poor, defenseless (fact, I have no defense skills) beggar!
It was a cold and brutal act.  I am shocked, I had not thought you capable of such
savagery.  A black wizard, yes, any day, likewise a red wizard, but a white one?  No.
It seemed so out of character.  I believe you are either a) a dark wizard in
disguise, or b) under some malign spell. -- Zaldiro, the Persistent Beggar of Jhelum,
head of the Beggars' Guild of Jhelum

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
