                       99 Bottles Contest Standings -- Turn 16

     Hogan's Heroes remain in the lead after turn 16, although they are still losing
ground.  Postmaster took over the Duelmastership with Sgt. Shultz's defeat of Popcorn
Machine, but that was his one and only win which leaves him earning only 3 bottles
total.  Manager's Dead Superior Forces moved within 6 bottles in second place by
earning 5 bottles with 3 wins and 2 stylemasters.
     A very big move was made this turn by Alfredo Frothingslosh, who earned an
amazing contest high 8 bottles with a perfect 5-0-1 turn in addition to 2
stylemasters.  Also notably, Alfredo managed to kill off Manager's high ranked lunger
Akara which should leave a big hole in Manager's stable.  Alfredo's excellent turn
moves him all the way up into third place over Ichabod Frothingslosh's Call to
Thunder, who had a devastating one-bottle turn while losing both of his stylemasters.
     Alfredo and Manager were not the only managers to put in good turns, however.
Ebenezer Frothingslosh's Flower children put in a 6-bottle showing with 4 wins, a
stylemaster, and a kill, which moves him into 5th place.  Chazz Frothingslosh also
made a move scoring 5 bottles on the strength of his 3 wins and 2 stylemasters.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of BONSUR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES?  
Who?  WISH YOU WERE BEER is the top team these days, buddies!  FLOWER CHILDREN after 
a sorry 0-5-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 
'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as VENGEANCE SEEKERS can attest...  BATHTUB ARMADA posted a 
nice gain, to come in 15th.  Everybody loves a winner...  SUGAR AND SPICE had cause 
to celebrate, after NUTMEG got 19 points by beating ROCKWELL.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, NUTMEG was winsome, after beating ROCKWELL and seeing him lose 13 
points.  The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as WILL DUEL FOR FOOD faced 
BONSUR's Duelmaster.  Now I can't insult WILL DUEL FOR FOOD, as he has gloriously 
dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) 
Word has it one team in BONSUR is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES, alone and 
unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, SPARE-A-DIME SHIFT scurried 
away from DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BUBBA is the most 
challenged warrior.  Them's the breaks, KINCH.  Expecting fair challenges from NINJAS 
is evidently too much to ask.  ISHINOMORI bested KINCH.  The whole thing leaves a 
bitter memory.  As a confidence booster, BREW HA HA challenged SUGARBEET, down 21 
points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, BREW HA HA?  BREW HA HA 
overcame SUGARBEET with a point difference of 21.  So this is what BONSUR calls a 
duel.  This will make an interesting tale.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Q:  What's a record like 16-12-0 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  
This week's winner:  SCHMEIKEL of IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS!  Like a tattered, worn-out, 
faded, out-of-fashion garment cast out to rot, SUMMER SAVORY of SUGAR AND SPICE has 
been summarily sent to the Dark Arena.  NAZGUL of NINJAS sends ALISS of THRILLZ & 
KILLZ goes to the Weary Warrior's Retirement Home.  BONSUR has no place for 
weaklings!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid BONSUR farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Ishinomori -- A TV challenge, impressive.  Considering I didn't think your manager
knew what a TV was much less ever winning one.... -- Dancing Cowboys
P.S.  Yes, that was meant to imply that Sucking Toad is an inept manager.

Big Fun -- Surprised to see you lose that one.  It wasn't the win, but the skill that
gave me the invite to ADM.  The base numbers are nothing to write home about 11(2)-
16(1)-12-14(1)-18(1)-9(1)-11(1) with a newly acquired AdEx in Initiative to go with
an Expert in Attack and another Expert in Parry, and just one skill short of expert
in defence.  Being purely mode combined with faves of VH/LO, Greataxe and learning
defence means that this turn is my last fight.  Hope your invite looks better than
mine. -- Schmeikel

Yarn Spinners and Spinnerettes -- Same an elsewhere-wise wif da Mincer. -- Applejack

Peschisolido -- Er, okay, if you say so. -- Miami Mia

Gamble -- Are you indifferent to the outcome of the fight? -- Aloha Alice and
Inquiring Minds want to know

Superfly -- I think I'm going to make my armor out of superflypaper. -- Tallahasse
Tina

Anti-Climactic -- Only because they didn't let me bury you in the sand.  That would
have been a good climax to our fight. -- Terri Towel

Goobatron -- See if anyone ever invites YOU to the cabana again. -- Ghost of Lucy
Luau

Retarded RV -- Interesting.  Either that was a lucky riposte or you're far better in
that area than one would expect.  In either case, nice job. -- Yakamo

Manager -- You and I sure haven't had much luck in challenging the other lately, have
we? -- Ichabod

Postmaster -- Yes that is very odd; I had just assumed that you hadn't been
attempting to bloodfeud every turn.  Sorry about Fountainhead not showing up last
turn; it certainly was not just to duck the bloodfeud.  He has exactly 20 FE so
needed to sit out one fight in order to participate in the Adepts tournament (note
that Fatima sat out as well).  I had heard that avoiding a bloodfeud was only
supposed to be successful 20% of the time; perhaps that is not the case. -- Alfredo

Postmaster -- Sorry I didn't finish the job; I certainly would have liked to. --
Bullshot

Jakuchu Ito -- Hey, no sour grapes now! -- Bullshot

Miami Mia -- Now you know for sure, there is no god.

* -- Broadsword?  You hardly looked like you knew how to hold that thing.  And what
the hell kinda name is that, anyhow? -- Fountainhead

Akara -- Rest in pieces.  *hick* -- Malt Licker

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
     More info:  Master Darque, MasterDarqueDM@aol.com, or Jack Wolfspider,
russtulp@aol.com.  Or diplo Darque Forces (428) or Dynastic (433) in Arena 45.
