                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

15 fights per team left in the contest, the MVP Top 11 awards are red hot with 7
warriors within two points of the Top 11 and another ten within 4 points.  The MVP
warrior remains Stigma by 9 points after his Bloodfeud loss to Bagman.  OrcCon Thugs
are still the MVP team leader by 6 points over Purple and Gold, both leads look
pretty secure right now but anything is possible in Jhelum.  Here are the standings:

MVP Team:
1.  OrcCon Thugs         170     5.  Arena Felines        147
2.  Purple and Gold      164     6.  Classic Blues        146
3.  Superior Forces ZC2  156     7.  Dark Toads           140
4.  Black + Blue         152     7.  Mayan White          140

     The Stylemaster competitions are actually coming down to the wire so I will be
writing up each one instead of just giving standings from now on.
     The Aimed Blow competition has been dominated by non participants keeping the
scoring very low.  The death of The Machine last turn gave the lead to Magic Johnson
with only 5 points.  There is just one other warrior with more than a single point,
Dark Champion with 2.  Unless Magic dies it will take an amazing charge from Cat
Tusion or Dark Champion to take this competition.
     The Basher competition looked over when Grotesque took the DM spot and FID with
it, but since then Syndicate has made a hard charge and is now the favorite only 2
points behind while holding the Top in Style the last 3 turns.  Grotesque is at 16
points, Syndicate has 14.
     The Lunger Competition is also very low scoring due to non contest warriors
stealing Top in Style points but the leader is finally emerging in Abhorrence who
stretched his lead to 6 points over Spider Claws, Crazy Ivan and Reveur this turn (10
to 4 each).  One of those warriors will need to take and hold Top in Style next turn
to catch Abhorrence with only 3 turns to go.
     The Parry Lunge Competition has been over for a long time, Michael Cooper has
never relinquished his Top in Style and now has 40 points, most of any warrior in any
style.  Only death will stop him from claiming the title.  Thijs Zonneveld and Rogue
7 hope to see Coop in the dead list every turn, so far to no avail.
     The Parry Riposte Competition is downright pathetic.  Unless ICBTRISA can get to
Adepts with a winning record for 2 turns this competition will go to Pussy-Footed
with only 3 points.  Of course if Pussy-Footed beats ICBTRISA or Thousand Foot Krutch
twice in the next three turns even that will not be enough.
     The Parry Strike Competition is interesting in that Dreamer beat Putressence
this turn to get to 7 points meaning if he holds the Top in Style to the end of the
contest he will overtake Putressence who has 16 points on the last turn to win 17-16.
No other Parry Strike is in range.
     The Slasher Competition was a 3 man until Quax died, then his killer got into
the mix by beating the Duelmaster in a Bloodfeud.  The current standings has Shaq
Daddy in the lead with 13 points, Charlie Patton at 12, Bagman hard charging with 8
points.  Bagman will catch Shaq by holding the Top in Style for 2 more turns, Charlie
Patton just needs to beat Shaq once to tie it up.
     The Striker Competition heated up with Stigma as the Duelmaster but just as he
was about to catch Bram De Waard, he lost the DM spot in a bloodfeud loss giving Bram
a little breathing room with a 5 point lead.  If Bram can hold off Stigma for one
turn he will lock up the title.
     The Total Parry Competition had Manager worried for a couple of turns as
Justgiveitup saw his lead dwindle to 2 points with 4 turns to go.  One big win has
his lead back to 4 and if he can stay Top in Style on more turn the title will be
his.  Vanguard with 10 points and White Dog with 7 points are within reach if they
can take and hold the Top in Style.
     The Wall of Steel competition is the last on the list.  Ma Rainey has had a
comfortable lead throughout the contest but White Worldbenger beat her this turn to
get within 3 points (14 to 11) meaning this competition, like all but the Parry
Lunge, will not be over until Turn 18 or later.
     Finally we have the 14 teams still looking for that Iron Manager award.  The
teams still in the hunt are:  Force of Five, Different Hats, The Force II, Black +
Blue, Superior Forces ZC2, Arena Felines, OrcCon Thugs, Purple and Gold, Dark Toads,
Dreamers, Classic Blues, Millenium Metal, Hitmen for Hire and Mayan White.
     One more reminder and then I am outta here!  Any warrior in line for an award
MUST be active on Turn 510 to win the award.  Any team in line for an award MUST have
at least one warrior from the team active on Turn 510 to win the team award.  This
includes Iron Manager, even if you have the required number of fights with one turn
to go.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JHELUM a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as PURPLE AND GOLD is pushed out of top team by THE FORCE II, who came 
from 7th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for HITMEN FOR HIRE, whose 1-3-0 this turn dropped them by 7 
into 12th.  THE FORCE II stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-0 into a 6 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  The DREAMERS 
guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, HAPPY CAT fought WHITE WORLDBENGER 
and gained 22 points and contributed to ARENA FELINES' 3-2-0.  WHITE WORLDBENGER has 
lost to HAPPY CAT, falling 17 points, while helping make MAYAN WHITE a 2-3-0 turn.  
SYNDICATE Bloodfeuded for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone HITMEN 
FOR HIRE's warrior.  And all eyes were on SYNDICATE this turn as he ascended to the 
throne of Duelmaster.  JHELUM has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the ARENA FELINES 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on JHELUM, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding ARENA FELINES more than any other team we find PURPLE AND GOLD.  JHELUM, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was DIFFERENT HATS' warrior DEACON.  More fighters challenged it than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say 
sometimes), VANGUARD challenged ABHORRENCE today, facing a 32 difference in 
recognition.  And now nobody knows where ABHORRENCE is right now, after giving 
VANGUARD 25 points worth of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind me.  Building 
dreams on hope, WHITE DOG challenged up 47 points this turn to take on BRAM DE WAARD 
from RONDE VAN NOORD-HOL. stable.  Even though WHITE DOG lost the fight, she at least 
came away with a gain of 68 points for challenging on of RONDE VAN NOORD-HOL..  GETS 
LAST LICKS from ARENA FELINES took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 26 
points in a challenge against WHITE WIND.  But Fate isn't always willing to be 
cheated, and GETS LAST LICKS lost to WHITE WIND, and MAYAN WHITE has not stopped 
laughing.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  You gotta do what you gotta do.  MAYAN WHITE has sent WHITE WIZARD to the 
Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  Had I not seen 
it, it would be hard to believe.  KERRY was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell 
about it!  Makes you think, no?  The Swinging Aardvark declares a free round for 
SYNDICATE and all of ORCCON THUGS, for having revenged HITMEN FOR HIRE's BAGMAN for 
killing one of their comrades.  Kudos go out to JUSTGIVEITUP this turn, for revenging 
SUPERIOR FORCES ZC2's bloodfeud against HITMEN FOR HIRE's warrior CRAZY IVAN.  Well 
done.  Congratulations go out to DIFFERENT HATS, with HUSBAND revenging a bloodfeud 
against VIPER of ORCCON THUGS.  Is it really true that JHELUM has more dishwashers 
per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JHELUM and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JHELUM again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
