                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of BONSUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  RADIO caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DESTROYER and was awarded 19 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, RADIO put down DESTROYER, 
causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  This time out MARSHAL 
made his bid for the throne as he challenged TOTAL DISASTER 1.0 in an all out contest 
of skill for possession of the title!  The city has turned out in honor of MARSHAL, 
for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position 
using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city BONSUR.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in BONSUR these 
days is BRAIN.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of SENTINELS are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  BURRITO take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in BONSUR.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     The girls are as pretty in BONSUR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hey!  I wrote ads for last turn!  Great ads!  Witty Ads!  The Babes had invited us to
their cabana, and if an editorial goof up cost us the invitation...we'll, we'll...
have to ask nicely for another invite I suppose.  Drat! -- Nomad

Laguna -- You just seemed so happy, I couldn't bring myself to ruin such a happy
time.  Yeah, that's it.  Enjoy your immortality, Babe! -- Red Lance

Albino -- I got riposted?  By you?  That just isn't good.  I do look forward to the
rematch. -- Ozy

Sandy Shore -- No need to despair.  One day the mighty shall look on in despair, but
I think I need to improve my "works" first.  Five arena wins (hopefully six by now)
just isn't enough...yet.  I have big dreams! -- Ozy

Betty -- A nose bob?  What's wrong with my schnoz?!  And yes, I do want to be a nice
guy, at least on the beach sand. -- Ramses

Solo -- I think I'm getting back into the swing of things. -- Yankee Rose

Sandy -- Looks like my manager made a liar out of me.  Never leave it up to a manager
who sends in the all fight same as last turn at the last minute.  Kinda gets things
messed up since I didn't fight the turn before.  I guess I'll just have to grin and
bear it and take my lumps at a higher class at the next tournament. -- Albino
P.S.  We still up for those drinks, I really need one now.

Three fights against the DM and another against an undefeated CC and I lived through
it all.  I love the skills they taught me but I'm glad I'll be matched up against
warriors around my same skill level. -- Barrio

Red Lance -- I'm off to find better beaches and more idyllic lagoons.  I leave you to
stand sentinel over Bonsur.  Guard it well. -- Lady Protector Laguana Lil

Marshal -- Do you do parades?  It could be a great opening for you, and parades are
much more, you know, fun than guarding things. -- Salton Seahorse

The Ambitious Guard?  (sigh)  I hate to dash his hopes, but he really isn't much good
at this. -- Beach Betty
P.S.  And I couldn't let him beat up ME, could I?

The Userous Merchant is incapable of further combat!  But it's only a temporary
situation, alas.  He'll be capable again soon enough.  Userers never quit. -- Sandy
Shore

Wombat -- Gods, you ARE brutal.  And peculiar-looking.  Have you considered wearing a
mask? -- Pensacolita, thankful that she turned up as an elf
P.S.  You noticed how I'm insanely attractive, charismatic, and cool, didn't you?

Total Disaster 1.0 -- Your impending graduation makes us feel all warm and fuzzy.  Go
go go! -- the Beach Babes

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
