                       99 Bottles Contest Standings -- Turn 17

     Postmaster's Hogan's Heroes are definitely proving that no lead is too big in
his contest.  Once again the Heroes have faltered, scoring only one bottle with his
lone win.  Postmaster now has three managers below him that are right on his heels.
Manager's Dead Superior Forces remain in second place, inching within three bottles
of the lead with a 4-bottle turn.  But the big moves this turn were all turned in by
Frothingslosh brothers.  Alfredo Frothingslosh's Wish You Were Beer stable put in
another fine showing by earning 6 bottles on the strength of his 4 wins and two
stylemasters.  Watch out for Alfredo; he won the first contest by a 10-bottle margin
and his recent move up the rankings is certainly proving that he is a contender.
Right behind Alfredo was Ichabod Frothingslosh's Call to Thunder stable who scored 6
bottles.  Chazz Frothingslosh's Spare-a-dime Shift scored 6 bottles with 3 wins, the
Duelmaster, and the most popular warrior for the turn, pulling him into a tie for
fifth place.  Suddenly there is only a six bottle difference between first and fourth
place, so it's anybody's ball game.

                                      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.  He who laughs last 
didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe MORGAN'S BOYS.  Last 
week they got 0-4-0 to drop by 7!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that 
for a perceptive observation?) as SUGAR AND SPICE can attest...  Good things come to 
those who fight well, as WASTELAND II can attest, moving up by 3.  SUGAR AND SPICE 
had cause to celebrate, after FENNEL got 24 points by beating ELMER.  Win some, lose 
some.  Speaking of which, MAGOBE IBUKA was winsome, after beating BREW HA HA and 
seeing him lose 16 points.  Duelmaster WILL DUEL FOR FOOD from SPARE-A-DIME SHIFT is 
going for the gold, as he TV challenged CALL TO THUNDER's BAYUSHI KACHIKO.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  What can be a greater victory?  BAYUSHI KACHIKO has taken hers place as 
the top, as BONSUR's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     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.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SPARE-A-DIME 
SHIFT, so did that sorry team shy from DEAD SUPERIOR FORCES Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, TIMMY is 
the most challenged warrior.  Do my ears deceive me?  <RETARDED RV> (outclassed by 40 
points) TV challenged TENACIOUS, in what promises to be a fight.(!) Not to smear a 
reputation, but BATHTUB ARMADA must be a little surprised, as TENACIOUS blew it when 
facing <RETARDED RV>, 40 points below him.  Place your bets!  HIDA YAKAMO is the long 
shot of the week:  they TV challenged POPCORN MACHINE, up by 26.  The gods smiled 
upon HIDA YAKAMO, in his upset fight against POPCORN MACHINE.  HIDA YAKAMO gets a 
win, 20 points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?) As a confidence booster, 
GOOBATRON challenged SESAME, down 22 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in 
your spare time, GOOBATRON?  Bookies and GOOBATRON were more than a little surprised, 
as SESAME snatched an easy victory from GOOBATRON, gaining 24 points.  My love of 
complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, HENRI and DANCING 
COWBOYS.  Are IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought 
HENRI showed great skill and promise when he overcame DANCING COWBOYS.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
I get a special thrill from seeing innocent boy like ELMER from DOUBLE ORDEALERS get 
pointlessly killed.  Good show, FENNEL!  (No mercy.) ELMER of DOUBLE ORDEALERS put 
away FENNEL of SUGAR AND SPICE.  Let's hope Lady Luck continues to smile upon FENNEL! 
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in BONSUR is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid BONSUR farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

     STOP THINKING TOGS!!!!!  It's here.  Well, almost here anyway.  We're looking at
a start date of the first turn in Aradi (DM 60) following the Fall Mail-In.  This
should give everyone sufficient time to study the new ultra-improved T#%S IV rules 
and prep accordingly.  So without further ado, here is your handy-dandy guide to
winning your very own Golden Scrod (and some other very cool prizes to be announced
officially before the start of the tourney that must not be named):
1.  Each T#%S team consists of two managers.  After the tourney starts, there will be
    no switching partners whatsoever, so choose your partners wisely.  T#%S IV will
    last for 13 turns, so pick a partner you can stand for 6 months or so.  The only
    team I know of so far is last TOGS winners:  Ganolus Oakleaf/Hombre of Blood
    Related/Thieves Guild.  Hey, this is fun!
2.  The T#%S entry fee is 2 team setups per manager.  This means 4 setups per T#%S
    team.  This entry fee is required before the start of the tourney with no
    exceptions being made.  This is to ensure that nobody gets screwed if a team or
    manager decides to back out early.  To pay the entry fee either:
    a) send $10 cash/check/money order/ or whatever to me personally at:

    b) get RSI to send me 2 team setup gift certificates.  Sorry, no credit cards and
       no old teams you have lying around will be accepted.
3.  T#%S point system:
    10 points for winning on your up-challenge against another T#%S warrior.
    7 points for winning on your even challenge of another T#%S warrior.
    7 points for winning on another T#%S warriors challenge.
    7 points for winning a random matchup against another T#%S warrior.
    4 points for winning on your down-challenge of another T#%S warrior.
    4 points for winning a random matchup against a non-T#%S warrior.  Do not fight
      your team mate, you will not get any points.  Also, you will not get any points
      if you challenge or get challenged by a non-T#%S team, so use your avoids
      wisely if you think someone is out to get you.
   10 points for being the Duelmaster.  This is in addition to all points listed
      above and will begin turn 1, so prep accordingly.
    5 points for every spotlight written by any team member, 1 per manager per turn.
      The minimum length of a spotlight to receive points is 1/2 column in the
      newsletter (that's 31 lines-each line 85 characters across) and I will be
      completely firm on this.  In addition to the length criteria, spotlights will
      not be given points if they are in any way plagiarized or if they are not
      Duelmasters or fantasy related.  I will be the sole judge of this.  If you're
      unsure if I will judge something to be Duelmasters or fantasy related, then
      e-mail me before you write the spotlight and ask me.  I reserve the right to
      take points away from a spotlight after they are given if I judge at a later
      time that the spotlight has been plagiarized.
   -5 points per manager per turn every time a manager does not at least write one
      personal ad.
   -5 points for being the team that avoided the most.
     If you participated in TOGS III, you'll notice some slight changes in the points
structure.  The main things are points for random match ups against non T#%S
warriors, bonus points for being the Duelmaster, new spotlight criteria, and no
points given for being the most avoided team.
4.  I already mentioned this, but T#%S IV will start the first turn in arena 60 after
    the Fall Mail-In runs and it will last for 13 turns.  There will not be a
    Survivor format this time around, meaning no eliminations.  I will still be doing
    the multipliers at the end, however.  This means that all points accumulated by a
    team on turns 10 and 11 will be multiplied by 1.5 and all points accumulated by
    each team on turns 12 and 13 will be multiplied by 2.
5.  Prizes are yet to be determined, but I'll tell you what I know.  There will be
    prizes given out each turn to whichever team scores the most combined points on a
    given turn.  Tie breakers will go to the team with the most wins on that turn and
    then to the team with most overall points.  I have asked RSI for the same prizes
    as last TOGS which were transferring any warrior to arena 60 and renaming Aradi
    for approximately 6 months, but we'll see what they come back with.  I haven't
    decided how to split the prizes up, partly because I don't know how many teams
    will be entering yet, but I do know the prizes will be split among the top 3
    teams at the end.  I will announce the exact breakdown of everything when I know
    more.
6.  And just like TOGS III, Death Stud and I will be the sole arbiters of any dispute
    that may arise.  Whine all you like, but as Nuln told you last time, that's how
    it is.
7.  M & RR Clause (go ahead, read between the capitals):  I reserve the right to
    disallow entry to this tourney if you have a previous history of being a big fat
    mouth about everything.
     I think that pretty much covers it.  I will be accepting team entries as of now
and then posting them in the newsletters as I receive entry fees.  Please feel free
to e-mail me regarding any questions or comments at Ganolus@aol.com.  So everyone don
your best pair of leg warmers, hop on your favorite farm animal, and ride to Aradi
for the 4th kinda-annual Tournament that must not be named for no apparent reason
whatsoever, or T#%S IV, for short.  See ya'll there!
