                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt RIZTAB will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as THE LAWMEN is pushed out of top team by WANDERING MONSTERS, who came from 2nd with 
a 1-3-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for ENGLISH FOOTBALL, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 18th.  
DRYNN'S PRETTIES stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-1 into a 7 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 9th place.  Good work, guys!  The THE CITY guild 
has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where 
this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, CHRISTINE fought DIRTY SANCHEZ and 
gained 23 points and contributed to DRYNN'S PRETTIES' 3-2-1.  FIDO has lost to PLATO, 
falling 14 points, while helping make HOUNDS OF HELL a 1-4-0 turn.  BLOOD BUD 
challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone ARENA FELINES' 
warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and CROUCHING TIGER 
remains RIZTAB's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  
I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  DRYNN'S PRETTIES has cause to 
stand tall, as they were RIZTAB's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding DRYNN'S PRETTIES more than any other team we find 
POWERPUFF GIRLS.  RIZTAB, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The 
most challenged warrior this turn was SWEET MAGIC's warrior NOREEN.  More fighters 
challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  SATANIC SNOOPY of HOUNDS OF HELL had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge which he 
lost.  I thought SATANIC SNOOPY showed great skill and promise when he was beat by 
FEN BOGGLE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, RIZTAB, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in RIZTAB, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in RIZTAB again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Judge Parker -- I've warn'd em this is a trap.  Them two dancy-dicers...naw...too
easy I says, you've a dirk up yer sleeve.  I've warn'd em. (like they'd listen) --
Dan

Fasttrack -- Yer a gas, Daddy-O.  We sometimes don't immediate-like retaliate against
losses...or even...lossez, if you dig my digger.  But we don't forget. -- Badger

Blood Bud -- Assurance and skill.  The caldron boils at the gateway to the mortal
plain. -- Mr. Hostile

Dirty Linens -- Joke's on me, no doubt. -- Twangy Tonya

Hamster Girl -- My little brother kept hamsters.  Tasty little things.  Er, so I've
been told.  Roasted on skewers.  Ah, that was what I HEARD, you understand.  I
wouldn't want you to think I ate them MYSELF.  Well, just a taste.  To be polite.
The Rirorni eat the oddest things, really.  And one has to be polite to one's
teammates.  Who are better at the whole fighting deal.  If you see what I mean? --
Noreen
P.S.  But, well, after all, you're an orc, and orcs eat odd things, too, don't they?
I mean, that's what I HEARD.  You know how people talk....

Snozz Wangers -- I think that's GROSS.  I mean the way you just blew your nose on the
sands at the beginning of the fight.  It made me sick to my stomach just seeing it.
And people say us orcs are crude! -- Tillerita

Angel -- (looking her up and down)  It figures.  (heavy sigh)  You elf types make the
rest of us look like so many cows.  It makes things hard, sometimes! -- Sugar Jane
P.S.  I am NOT fat, just big boned.
P.P.S.  I AM.  I'm Shewish, after all.

Dancing Elf -- Isn't that just LIKE an elf, trampling on the leaves?  Some days I
just get so mad I could almost spit. -- Autumn Leaves

Menacing Troll -- (patting him on his knee, that being what she can reach easily)
It's okay, I felt terribly menaced.  Terribly!  But the thing is, I react to being
menaced by getting all violent.  Still, it was a good effort on your part, and don't
let anyone tell you otherwise. -- Alourin

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:

hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
