                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  KALTOS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for TYRONE 
BAGGINS?  LORD OF THE BLING's proud of him after beating CHESTER EGG and getting 19 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  CHESTER EGG got smashed by TYRONE BAGGINS, 
and lost 12 points!  What a putz!  MANUTE BOL fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then 
quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said it was a genius...  Was that a tear 
I saw in FREDERICK DOUGLASS' eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't HOFFA 
fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't 
ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 was the most avoided team.  Is a 
179-177-9 record really that scary?  I don't know what BLITZKRIEG's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from THE MIDDLE WAY 5, that's fer sher.  
Like, is ERLOI GILL popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of KALTOS!  
He's got a 6-11-0, is that good?  I'm not so sure HARRIET TUBMAN knew all the facts 
when she challenged ERLOI GILL of THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  I saw HARRIET TUBMAN stumbling 
and dribbling at The Victory Tavern last week...  Like, was that some fighting on 
HARRIET TUBMAN's part, or what?  And she got 24 points out of it!  (besides getting 
in my report)  Poor ERLOI GILL.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KALTOS ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  KALTOS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Flynn -- I think it is grossly UNFAIR that you are so much taller than I am!  I have 
labored long and hard to build a reputation among the female fans for suave, 
debonaire, even heroic, manhood, in short, a choice date.  And then YOU come along.  
Somebody should DO something about you. -- Ferghan Hohl

Zakau -- Ah!  I like it when things go that way.  Let's do it again--if you promise 
to lose again. -- Erloi Gill

I don't think these Dangerous Criminal types should be let out, even if it's just to 
fight in the arena.  They really ARE dangerous, you know.  They could KILL somebody, 
and they'd just LAUGH. -- Norle Parth

Hoffa -- Gods, I hate it when I lose to you!  It's like losing to the Little Old 
Lady, or the Two-Year-Old Baby.  It really, really makes me feel worthless, and I 
hate that, too.  What if Nick gets to thinking I AM worthless? -- Ingold Kerr

I don't have TIME to cater to some lazy Beggar. -- Chester Egg

                         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.
