                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JHELUM!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  F BALLS like really fought hard 
to move up to 4th from 7th.  Way to go!  MVP award for FOOT BALL?  F BALLS' proud of 
him after beating CHALLON and getting 12 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
CHALLON got smashed by FOOT BALL, and lost 9 points!  Was that a tear I saw in PUY's 
eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't LEGALASS fit to be tied!  I hear 
the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Can DEATH 
SQUAD's SERIAL KILLER be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?  WHITE THUNDER must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair 
fights.  He challenged HANNIBAL.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they 
tell me.) I thought WHITE THUNDER showed great skill and promise when he subdued 
HANNIBAL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

White Thunder -- Yes, and then a white tornado showed up, too, and it REALLY scared
the elephants.  This is not the first time I've thought that I shouldn't have brought
the damned beasts.  Yes, they're impressive, but they're unruly, and a pain in the,
er, back to feed.  Hmm.  Elephant stew.... -- Hannibal

     That'd be a LOT of stew. -- Ed.

Bore-O-Me -- That takes real art, to bore someone in twenty-seven seconds.  I could
hardly stand it. -- Jimmy Custer

Scandalf -- I just wish you'd SHARE some of those scandalous pleasures.  I never find
anything really good going.  (sigh)  I must be looking in the wrong places. --
Epimonidas
P.S.  Looking in Sparta is definitely the wrong place.

The Userous Merchant?  Bah.  Humbug. -- Howard

Howard definitely had the right take on that merchant, but he shouldn't have stirred
him up.  It took me THREE minutes to cut him off at the knees.  Gods. -- Challon

Decapitator -- Good thing I can still duck or my goose would be cooked!  Better to
just offer up some larder and a barrel of Longbottom Leaf and leave the headhunters
to their dirty business. -- Gimlet

Venomous Vixen -- Thanks for taking it easy on me--I'm not quite ready to retire. --
Legalass

Epimonidas -- That quarterstaff mead sure packs a punch!  Hope you had plenty of
willow bark malt brew to soothe the ol' noggin.  I'm sure you could play more nicely
with Bore-O-Me but he's too focused and never was much for the fine art of
conversation. -- Scandalf

Fuzz Ball -- If you were in the woods, nary a tree would stand.  You must be making
ready for a long, cold winter.  Way to go chopper! -- Aragant

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

4 September 2006
Civil War/The Crusades

The next edition of the Civil War series is to be held in Tobir, arena 14, beginning
November 25th with a round where all participating managers must DA all 5 of their
warriors; in addition all warriors must be prefixed with an A an F or a D in the
following manner:  A-Broke Stroker or (A) Broke Stroker.  Names simply beginning with
the letter of your federation will NOT count as properly prefixed!  Existing teams
are welcome but no warrior who survives the DA who had prior Fight Experience (arena
or tourney) will be allowed to score or challenge into the contest teams.  There will
be an equal number of teams set up for each of the three factions (Andorian, Free
Blades, and Delarquan) to create sides as equal as possible.  This along with the DA
round should set up pretty equal footing for all managers.  After the DA there will
be another round where you can either DA again or fight your new, or surviving,
warriors so they will be set up to challenge an opponent beginning on round 1.  So as
a recap DA round, turn 0, then turn 1 it begins with the following rules:

The Civil War to be held in arena 14.
- The contest runs for 10-28 turns (barring ties).
- No tourney participation allowed.  Teams with warriors participating in any
  tournament are disqualified.
- An even number of teams per faction worked out by the Faction Leaders.  No later
  substitutions are allowed.
- If a manager brings in a second team and challenges into the contest he is DQ'd and
  his side will fight one team short!
- Three factions will be participating:  Andorian, Delarquan, Free Blades
- Everyone prefixes their warrior with A-, F-, or D- (No prefix = disqualification of
  the warrior)
- Turn DA:  (The DA Round) November 25, 2006.  Every warrior must DA.  (Warriors not
  DA'd on Turn 0 are disqualified)
- Turn 0:  December 9th, 2006.  There will be no scoring this turn it is meant to
  allow for challenges on turn 1.
- Turn 1+:  Scoring as detailed below
- Each team gets 1 point for defeating a warrior from an opposing team.
- Fights against warriors on your team do not generate points in any situation.
- The team with the most points each turn gets a Battle Point (if there is a tie for
  the most points then no Battle Points are accrued)
- The first team to 10 Battle Points wins the war
- Managers of teams on the winning side each receive a +1 bonus potion to be used on
  a warrior on their contest team.  This must be applied within a month of the
  conclusion of the contest and the team must have been active on the last turn of
  the contest.

Anyone wishing to participate, and feels they can probably stick around for the
duration (don't want to handicap a side, of course unforeseeable events cannot be
planned for), should either diplo me at THE DEATH SQUAD(63) in Tobir (arena 14) or
place a personal ad in the arena.  You may also contact me via the Duel2.com boards!

Let me know which faction you would like to fight for!  This contest is intended to
be open to ALL managers wishing to pit themselves against each other to try and
determine which faction has the best managers! -- Street Legal
