                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for KOLACT.  Too bad, QUBIT, but THE MENTORS 
was just too good to be stopped.  Uncool, THE MOONDOGS.  I mean 0-5-0 is bad.  Will 
they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  The guys at WAR 
HAWKS like really pulled together to get a 3-0-0 this turn, moving up by 7.  What was 
the name of that team who got 3-0-0 this turn for a total 586-439-25 you ask?  (Sure) 
SIR AGLIO's their name, and fighting's their game!  Did you see T. CITY out on the 
sands?  Their first try at fighting got them a 2-3-1, but I think they've got real 
promise.  MVP award for MISSAE?  WAR HAWKS' proud of her after beating QUICKSAND and 
getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  QUICKSAND got smashed by MISSAE, 
and lost 14 points!  Was that a tear I saw in TORLEC's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't QUONSET fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of PRAETORIAN GUARD 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  I don't know what TOWNSVILLAINS' been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from PRAETORIAN GUARD, that's fer sher.  Can THE MOONDOGS' 
KEPLER be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?  People were asking me did FELICITAS REALLY challenge QUIBBLE?  (all right, 
maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, 
but QUIBBLE wants me to write about it since he was defeated by FELICITAS.  
Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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.  KOLACT is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Megawarriors, welcome back.  I haven't seen you in nearly 20 years.  I hope you stick
around! -- Shocking Toad, manager, Praetorian Guard (formerly The Warriors)

Almost had another kill, damn that will roll! -- Felicitas--she who murders the weak
and worthless

I'll take a loss for 4 skills most days of the weak.  I am The Hand of G-d!

Baboon Kaboom -- *ahem*  Named at birth, were you?  Fitting. -- Vanna

Quicksand -- If we meet again...then yer doin somethin wrong.  This next head-
banger'll be a real testament (or not) ta yer trainin prowess. <gettem greta> --
Gracie

Quibble -- Maybe this one ain't the find-all be-all I'd hoped for.  Or maybe you're
just that head-strong. -- Grandiose Greta

Beijing -- A tad more splinter in my splinter.  These wart-removers leave one red-
faced. -- Gus

Quonset -- Wuz'e better?  Wuz'e better'n me? -- Gracie

Quasimodo -- If my life is worthless, how can I be a "fine opponent"?  And
conversely, if I'm a fine opponent, how come I've got a record of 14-37? -- Kepler
the puzzled

Sir Prise -- But I wasn't!  I would have been much more surprised if *I* had won, so,
to live up to your name, you should have lost to me, don't you think? -- O.
Procellarum, willing to try everything except hard work

Ojo Tango -- Sorry about the "wall of blades" thing, but I was practicing for a
cooking competition in which I will portray a cuisinart. -- Cleo

Sultan of Swing -- Great tune, though. -- Tycho

Sir Ingomyelic -- Gods, I hope you aren't contagious! -- Luna Moth, planning on
getting a full check-up right after the fight

Sarajevo -- You WILL feel the 4 turns of bloodfeud to the full extent. -- OXX..."I go
first"

Suave -- I wonder who will deliver your death blow?  Me or Savage? -- S.P. (The
Machine)

Jolly -- Well that was embarrassing!  Go again? -- Red

Osio -- There are no words to describe the way you took punishment.  We WILL meet
again, T.P.! -- Thunderstar

Felicitas -- I think I'm in love. -- Casimir

     Yes, it's time again for alliances to go to war!  TW3 will be held in DM 47
(North Fork) at a date to be  specified later--right after Crip's Incomprehensible
Contest is over...but I'm sure everyone wants to get their teams there soon!  Here
are the rules:

1.  Each alliance must have a leader declare the arrival of his alliance.  The leader
    will be responsible for verifying any and all teams/managers who declare to the
    alliance he/she is leading.
2.  Each manager, team declaring for the contest must have approval of the leader,
    donate one Roll-up Certificate ($5) to the prize pot (send it to me by diplo, by
    snail, or a note to customer service), and declare his/her team by diplo, p-ad or
    snail.
3.  Each team may declare one warrior as champion.  All points scored by a champ are
    double!
4.  Prizes are as follows (mostly...there WILL be some things added as the prize pot
    grows with entry donations--this list is not final!)
    *  Highest scoring alliance -- Rename Arena 47 for a period of 6 months, one half
       of the total prize pot donated; roll-up certs.
    *  The Alliance with the most returns from the DA will get to re-name the DA
       monsters for a period of 6 months.
    *  The alliance with the most warriors listed as style masters will get to pick
       the Alastari city/arena to host the next Grand Tournament.
    *  The warrior with the most front page honors/awards will have the Arenamaster
       named after him for a period of 6 months.
    *  The Alliance with the most front page Honors/Awards will have the honor of
        picking the *slow* arena to host the Fifth Annual Turf War.
    *  The team with the most listings as Style Master will find out the favorites of
       one of their warriors.
    *  The warrior with the most listings as Style Master will fight at my expense
       for five turns (I will transfer to the manager's account).
    *  The Alliance with the most kills will be able to re-name the stand-in warriors
       for a period of 6 months.
    *  The warrior that scores the most total points will fight at my expense for 5
       turns (I will transfer $7.50 to the manager's account).
    *  The team that scores the most total points will receive an extra share of
       roll-up certs from the prize pot.
     There may be more categories to come, and the prize pot still has to be
divided...I'm open to category/prize ideas--and further donations to the prize pot.
     The contest will run for *TEN* turns; prizes will be awarded at the end of the
11th turn.
     Scoring will be as follows:
* 5 points per fight, doubled for each of the following conditions met:
     -- Two Alliance     -- Champion
     -- Challenge        -- Two Champions
     -- Bloodfeud        -- Challenger losing
     -- Kill
     (Note:  DA losses are exempt, but DA wins will be *tripled*!!!  Ex:  Happy
Slasher goes to the DA and dies, no points are lost.  If he wins, his team scores 60
points!  If he was a champ, he scores 120 points!)
     Use the following chart to calculate scores:
Conditions Met:       0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7
Points Per Fight:     5    10    20    40    80   160   320   640
* Awards/Honors and Style Masters will each be awarded points also.  Find the total
number of each (do note add Awards and Style Masters together) and consult the graph
below.  Champs that score an award or style master count as two.
     1 --   5      7 --  320
     2 --  10      8 --  640
     3 --  20      9 -- 1280
     4 --  40     10 -- 2560
     5 --  80     11 -- 5280
     6 -- 100     (x2 for each extra)
Note -- These categories *count as "triple"*--they will be figured for each team,
*AND* again for each alliance *as well as* for each warrior!
*  Each and every mention in the Spy Report is worth 5 points...period.
*  TVs will be scored on the same scale as Awards/Style Masters, but the total points
will be x10.  TC's will be scored as TV's, but x10 more.
Number of TV/TC's          Points Scored (TV/TC)
     1      50/ 500
     2     100/1000
     3     200/2000
     4     400/4000
     +     x2/ x2 (for each extra)
     Each alliance will start with 5000 points, scores for *fights* will be added to
the winner's total *AND* deducted from the losers.
     Come  one and all, defend your turf and the honor of your alliance...or your
own!

     Assurnasirbanipal invites you to Talcama to participate in the third BATTLE
ROYAL contest.  It is a Delarquan contest so brutal that even some of Talcama's most
notable managers will refuse to participate.  The rules are simpler than any other
contest:  You may not avoid any other contest team.  There are no silly rules for who
can and can't compete.  Any team in Talcama is eligible to compete.  The scoring is
also quite simple (+1 for a win, +1 for a kill (+1 for the win), -1 for a loss) and
the first team to reach 25 points is the winner.
     Scoring will be live--the results for the turn posted in the newsletter.  The
winner will be able to fight their contest team in Talcama for free for 6 months but
more importantly will win a contest against some of the best managers who play the
game in one of the hardest contests in the game.
     First turn for BATTLE ROYAL 3 is Talcama Turn 465, which is due August 30.

     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
pests.
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.
