                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KALTOS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with FERGUS HILL?  
He actually beat PAPER MARIO's BOMBETTE, and walked away with 9 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  JERI LOUGH lost 4 points to DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe JERI LOUGH will provide more easy 
wins...  Har har har!  Did MICKEY MANTLE wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's 
not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for THE MIDDLE WAY 5's 
outstanding member, Duelmaster FERGUS HILL.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give 
up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, WIZARD'S WRATH!  The bums at PAPER MARIO couldn't face the challenges from 
WIZARD'S WRATH!  No excuse for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Jeri -- Magic?  Guess not.  Wish I'd had some magic against Gloria, though.  I guess
she's just better than you. -- Star Rod

Overd -- And a big, striking bomb I am too! -- Twink

Fergus -- Don't take it too badly.  They say I am pretty good.  Especially raw! --
Sushie

Elinde Goss -- Golems give me the hives too!  I like human babes! -- Twink

Where were you, Tubba Blubba?  Cafeteria hadn't closed yet? -- Luigi

Sushie -- Despite your peculiar fondness for raw fish (it's bad enough COOKED, gah!),
you're a cute kid, in a, well, in a way.  But what really gravels my drawers is your
determination to beat up on me.  What did I do?  Was it something I said?  Gods,
woman, back off! -- Fergus Hill

Star Rod -- You call that thing a weapon?  It looks like Tinkerbell's favorite tool
to me.  Bah.  Useless, at least in the arena. -- Gloria Imbro

Bombette -- You look to ME more like you should be a Bombetona or something.  Much
too big for your name, which suggests the short and, though not delicate, relatively
small.  Oh, well. -- Jeri Lough

Twink -- I've got a "thing" about golems, see?  I can't stand 'em.  So I surrender
just to get away from you.  Rotten planning, but there it is, a totally unplanned and
insuperable automatic reaction. -- Orverd Quill, feeling fairly good about his
excuse, er, I mean, explanation

Convicted Thief?  Surely a wimp like this can't be one of the notorious Jones
Brothers!  He's pathetic. -- Elinde Goss

Bombette -- All the women say that to me.  Why?  Is it my aftershave?  Should I shave
first? -- Orverd Quill

Star Rod -- (pout) -- Jeri Lough

Twink -- Oh, well, golems can't be expected to know better. -- Elinde Goss

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

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

14 September 2006
     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.
