                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ARUAK 
CITY.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Coming 
up with a solid 3-0-0 outing, 'CROSSED UP has advanced 7 places in the rankings.  
Advancing in the rankings was SNUGGLEBUNNIES who went from last turn's 5-9-0, to this 
week's record of 8-10-0.  Life's a beach, and it's getting pretty hot on the arena 
sand for NOBODYS, who entered ARUAK CITY with a 0-3-0 week.  Better luck next time.  
Hey everybody, watch out for SCRAG'S LIZARD, who flew up 37 points in the rankings 
after mashing FRED WEASLEY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was IVAN DEERSTALKER, who dropped 18 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with CRISSY.  Drawing on all of his experience 
as a 13-6-0 warrior, BART WELLENS went for the Duelmastership against VAJRA VALMEJAR 
this week.  It's a proud day for the 'CROSSED UP stable, as their warrior, BART 
WELLENS, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but 
an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that GIRO PELETON was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of GIRO PELETON's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause MENS REA beats feet every time GIRO PELETON smiles at them.  Try 
farming, eh?  And who is this ALAN HOLDSWORTH you ask, with 26 points and a 4-14-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a mismatch, our friend INGRATE WHITE CREEP 
of CONSORTIUM CRAP got heroic notions and challenged ORION ORANGE.  What did it get 
him?  A 9-5-0 record, that's what.  This week INGRATE WHITE CREEP 9-5-0 fought ORION 
ORANGE 20-12-0 and in losing gained 1 points.  I know several gladiators who could go 
for a few fights like that.  Well, it looks like LONNIE JOHNSON wasn't happy with 
last turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 26 points.  No guts, no 
glory.  Trading many whacks on the head and a loss for 2 recognition points, LONNIE 
JOHNSON shows that a guy doesn't have to be good to get places.  Challenging down 16 
points was TALKHIS.  Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The 
only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  TALKHIS won victory over CORKED 
BAT SAMMY, a mismatch of 16 points.  TRACII GUNS of THE HEADCUTTERS II had better 
have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in a challenge which he was slain.  
I thought TRACII GUNS showed great skill and promise when he was slain by DARTH 
PRETZEL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  NIGHTEYES says to hers dog--'Who should I fight this 
week?'.  Dog says 'HIGH ELF'.  So the gal dies.  Moral?  Put lying dogs to sleep.  
There's got to be more reason for the sending of MOONRAZOR to the Dark Arena than his 
record (3-1-0).  Anybody got any ideas SHADOWS?  Big deal, so ALAN HOLDSWORTH got 
mashed in the Dark Arena.  With his face he was more at home with the trolls than 
with us. (Waka waka).  GNIMWIT says to his dog--'Who should I fight this week?'.  Dog 
says 'MOUNTAIN TROLL'.  So the guy dies.  Moral?  Put lying dogs to sleep.  CUDDLING 
defied all odds and slew BLACK ORC in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were 
the buzzards, as BLACK ORC's meat is notoriously tough.  This round goes to VIEW 
ASKEW, their 10-8-1 warrior, NUBIAN GOD slew the 8-2-0 MARTIN DERGANC.  Stay tuned 
next week to see what happens.  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  TRACII GUNS II:  THE 
REMATCH.  Congrats to SUMTHING PAINFUL for revenging the death of his teammate (but 
more importantly, feeding 2XZ a bit of dirt).  Here's some advice:  warriors with 
little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARUAK CITY giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

All -- Mixed results in the grand tourney.  Regrettably, Kupfernagel will not be
returning to Aruak, however, Savoldelli is returning with accolades!  Trouble is, now
he's hungry to go back to another grand tourney and won't be on the sands much 'til
then. -- Dr. Mabuse, Giro Peleton.

All -- Please welcome Anja Nobus and Corine Dorland to our team.  With all the new
teams out there the recruiting has gotten tougher and we've had to fill our roster
with women folk!  These aren't your ordinary chambermaids turned warriors however. --
Dr. Mabuse, 'Crossed Up

Tracii -- That one was all me, I'm afraid.  Looks like we'll have plenty of targets
around here for awhile though, so we'll continue the series later eh? -- Ann Grande

Theresa F.S. -- Now you to know why I am known as Lord Bennett. -- L.B.

Rillion -- Recover from your loss at the last mail-in? -- Barnabas
P.S.  What's been happening?

Green Eyes/Ed. -- A friendly reminder.  We'd still like to have a revised team-
manager list for our fair arena.  Thank you. -- Adie

     It's above.  I did it shortly after the last turn ran to be sure I wouldn't
     forget. -- Ed.

Vajra Valmejar -- Congratulations on reaching the throne.  Duelmasters drink free at
the Bulldog Inn.  Stop on by. -- Adie

Orion Orange -- Congratulations!  You've just achieved immortality!  What are you
going to do now!? -- Adie

Big Beaver -- So you are the manager of Beavers Are For...?  Welcome.  I hope you do
eventually find Aruak to your liking.  Stop by the Bulldog Inn for a drink or a bite
to eat, I might have some nice pieces of mahogany and hickory around here for you to
nibble on. -- Adie

Bad Heir Day -- Hey, you're vocal!  Who's running the show over there?  We'd like to
give you a warm welcome! -- Adie

Chival-R-Us -- You too!  Your shop is excellent, if unorthodox, but who's managing
the team?  Drop by the Bulldog Inn for a drink.  You might be amazed at our own
selection of concoctions. -- Adie

Anybody else I missed?  Newer teams, introduce yourselves.  When one of you TC's,
we'd like to know who manages which teams and warriors to put them on the Bulldog Inn
Hall of Fame! -- Adie of the Bulldog Inn

Master Po -- Ah!  I knew I'd almost forgotten somebody!  Welcome to Aruak, make
yourself at home, and enjoy the friendly environment.  You can meet most of the
managers of Aruak at the Bulldog Inn. -- Adie

Hannibal -- It's real good to have you back.  Welcome home. -- Adie

Ingrate White Creep -- So you're one of Crip's guys eh?  Pretty good, pretty good.
Well fought.  We look forward to hearing more from you. -- Segallion

Hiro Jhan Tri -- I may learn slow and have a losing record, but it doesn't mean I
suck. -- Zlatina

Snugglebunnies -- Oh yeah, my manager wanted me to tell you to watch those abdomen
shots, and lose the blood crazed death howls.  Personally, I'd just prefer to return
the favor. -- Branford Hawke

Strategery -- Yeah yeah, whatever. -- Branford

Gourmet Cowboy -- Can you cook French? -- Eliza Pigeron

Junior 1 -- Close, but not close enough.  Junior. -- Kalidor

Aruak -- Hmm...I've been getting some complaints about my advertising our city's
general tendency to try to avoid killing and have no downchallenges.  I admit the
'weeds' comment was a bit strong, but do any of you actually have a problem with me
giving a heads-up to the new teams?  Hmm?  Anybody?  Everybody deserves a fair chance
to be part of the community, don't you think? -- Tankesh

All -- I am the manager of Club Hammer, I will be on the side of the attackers not
due to the people involved but because of the principles that I follow.  I play with
a style that I feel is the best for my team no matter what arena I am in or wether or
not the arena has rules.  If I want to downchallenge, I will.  If I want to run a
very high kill desire, then I will.  If someone kills one of mine, I bloodfued all
three turns and attempt to kill that warrior; it's just my style.  So anyway, here I
am; this should be fun. -- Tripwire

All -- I am a giant one eyed lizard, fear me. -- Scrags Lizard
P.S.  Picture yourself in an alley and you turn around and Scrag is standing there in
a trench-coat.

Leeta -- It seems I've claimed the popularity leader position from your clutches, if
only for a turn.  I gotta say, I'm surprised. -- Bootleg Patchwork, from a team with
a long tradition of unpopularity

Hitch -- We totally overlooked it last turn...congratulations!!! -- Gerfel's Friends

Hanibal -- Glad to hear you'll be present more.  Now what about your brother?  We had
some good times here together. -- Generalissimo Puerco
P.S. I fear that Bloodletter's most prosperous days may be behind him, but I would
love for you to prove me wrong.

All -- I crossed a milestone last turn that was over 11 years in the making.  With
the graduation of Orion Orange, I have successfully taken warriors of all 10 fighting
styles through basic to the Isle.  The basher and, now, the ripper both finally made
it in the last three months.  Were it not for those styles, I would have completed
this task years ago.  A bit of trivia, my first two styles to AD were those that some
find most challenging:  PL and AB.  You can still find that particular AB in Andorak,
bringing me great satisfaction just from the interesting fights he produces.  Anyway,
let me briefly share Orion Orange because he's, well, unconventional:  21-10-12-17-
10-3-11, PR.  Normal endurance, great damage.  EP, MO/HI, riposte tactic, defense
skills.  -2 Att, +3 Par.  I'd like to give him a shot in AD because his rythyms
thrill me, but I can't see any long term development with the Att penalty he carries.
He will remain for me an interesting (and surprisingly successful) experiment, that
defied all odds and did what so many others could not:  let me graduate a ripper! --
Generalissimo Puerco

All -- Seer King is part of the Invading Forces.  May you bleed well. -- Nunzio
Frothingslosh

Inigo Montoya -- Perhaps I should have studied Capo Vera? -- Morpheus

All -- Consider this my formal announcement of my teams in this city.  Like the rest
that you label 'invaders', I'll be here to do what carnage and mayhem I can and
challenge you to remove me.  Good luck. -- Ichabod Frothingslosh, mgr. Night's
Guardians and Patronas Veritas

Let it be known that all the beavers of Beavers Are For answer to me. -- Sylvester
Frothingslosh

Tankesh and Citizens of Aruak City -- Thank you for the warm welcome, and not so
welcome "warning."  As the house rules are decided upon by a general arena consensus
I feel a "wind of change" blowing through the streets of this fair city.  The
liberation of Aruak City has begun.  Happy dueling. -- Cosmo Frothingslosh, Mgr. of
Mens Rea

Residents of Aruak City, rejoice!  Your aimlessly pious existance can now affect the
appearance of having meaning.  Finally, those tall white hats can be taken out of
their boxes, dusted off and placed with pride atop your little pointy heads.  I've
got my black hat and cape back from the dry-cleaners and the 'smoked chrome' finish
should be just about set on my stable's armor.  Now you can make this easy on
yourselves and just get in a line and we'll hand out raffle tickets, or you can
continue to march dutifully onto the sand, and keep a tally of who marches off.
We'll come up with some scorecard to make things easy in a few turns.  Either way,
I'm sure we'll enjoy our stay.  Henceforth...welcome to our 'invasion' -- Manray,
Marquis d'Frothingslosh, mgr. 'Bad Heir Day' and 'Velvet Green'

Tankesh -- Of course I'm sure you already can guess what sort of response your
'public proclaimation' will warrent from us.  You do what you have to do...or at
least your warriors will die trying. -- Manray

Dreidenflahg -- I'm interested to see how long your team remains afloat here with the
impending influx of 'conflict oriented' personas.  I hope it is quite a while, though
I fear that our new wave will wash you from these sands before a suitable tribute can
be wrung from your hapless brigade.  In the end, either result will be satisfactory
for a higher purpose demands it.  This city will become your own 'paradise lost'.
Negotium perambulans in tenebris.... -- Manray F.

Kennelworth, Street Legal, Dr. Mabuse, Crop, Godric, Greek Guy...and all other
diggers of graves.  We'll be seeing you, in all those familiar places.... -- Manray
F.

Kender -- Get used to it. -- Steel Monkey

All -- Greetings and Salutations!  On the words of the Round Table I have decided to
try out an Andorian arena and good things were said about Aruak City.
     A quick question about the Andorian League.  Do my eyes deceive me or are there
four different sub nations in the league?  It this also true of the Delarquan League?
What does this signify, if at all?
     I can see that Andor is the Capitol, and that of the four sub nations Aruak
seems to be the capitol of the 11 cities that are joined to be the biggest of the
four.
     In the stories that are written how much political social and financial
information is known?  I wish to write some stories of my own so any diplos any of
you wish to send me regarding general info, current events, plot ideas or desire to
be involved creatively would be appreciated. -- Mordigan...The Imperials!

Doc Steel -- Thanks for the invitation to come to Aruak.  I look forward to being
schooled and trained on the finer points of the game. -- Mordigan...The Imperials

Glleellmann -- You have exceeded the limit for multiple letters.  Surrender at once!
-- Jughead Trilby

Tony McAlpine -- Mountain-climbing up the ranks, eh?  Better you than me! -- Kedro

Alan Holdworth -- Ah, but are you worth holding?  It seems debatable. -- Nila
Sundancer

Pandemic -- Ah, that explains why Rocky's in the hospital. -- Leeta

#1 Stunna -- I'm stunned, okay?  Let's not do this again. -- Windbreak

Looks like someone fed this arena a growth potion.  What's happening? -- Leeta

     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:
       Andy Salveson
       6812 Romanzo Way
       Elk Grove, CA 95758
    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!

-- Ganolus Oakleaf, T#%S IV Commish

To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.
