                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in RIZTAB, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--COLD IRON BLOWS.  
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, IRONSTORM was winsome, after beating 
EPICURIOUS and seeing him lose 19 points.  The arena was more crowded than usual this 
time, as BUDDHA faced RIZTAB's Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by BUDDHA, of DREAMERS, who despite a 19-18-0 couldn't overcome RIZTAB's 
Number 1.  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!  Perhaps the warriors of INCUBUS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of INCUBUS 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as CULTS-R-US apparently had more important 
things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and YODA MAN is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't WHO DA MAN? proud!  Place your bets!  
UGLY EDDIE is the long shot of the week:  they challenged LOSING IS FUN, up by 45.  
Fixed fights?  Paybacks?  Blind luck?  Whatever, UGLY EDDIE challenged LOSING IS FUN, 
UGLY EDDIE the underdog by 45 points.  MANGY POLECAT challenged BIG SHRIMP!  Who says 
HIGH JINKS are just a bunch of wimps!  MANGY POLECAT of HIGH JINKS kept his wits as 
he defeated BIG SHRIMP.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Justice was served as 
KOOL-AID DRINKER fought TYGER in bloodfeud.  Well done, CULTS-R-US!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in RIZTAB would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Epicurious -- Curious?  Who was curious?  I only get curious about fighters with your
experience, you old dog you, when I've delved deeply into my cups.  Did you notice I
snuck in as an A-dept?  Long may I wave. -- Missy Mossy

Ironstorm -- The boss smiled.  Which is a good thing as after some fights the boss
doesn't smile.  Now, he's not the best looking fellow at the best of times, but when
he's got a case of the frowns...he knows he's been nixed by the dating scene and we
knows we're all skating on thin ice. -- Krankykarl

Sweet Betsey -- Oh, did I need that.  Sweeeeeet Betsey. -- Mangy Polecat

Winter Shadows -- Don't be cross, it unbecomes you.  S'just Ms. Nature's way a
keeping us awake n' alive to day-by-day changes.  Believe it or don't believe it but
some folks just slog along, they don't notice one day from another.  And watch that
thawing and freezing thing...it brings ice. -- Dexter

Losing Is Fun -- And you are SOOO self-sacrificing, making sure that everyone ELSE
has that fun.  I can barely stand it. -- Tala Gog
P.S.  How do your teammates stand you?  I've heard that spending much time around
"saints" can be a horrible ordeal for ordinary people.

Machiavelli -- Ah, I SEE.  It's all a deep, dark PLOT to get me out of your way.
Well, I'm not inclined to cooperation in the ordinary course of events, but under
these circumstances... I'm out of here!  Thanks. -- Alourshin

Dexter -- And our records remain perfect reciprocals.  That, of course, was fated,

whatever the outcome.  But I still wouldn't have minded if the outcome was otherwise.
-- Tariliss
P.S.  It would have been so much cooler if you'd been a lefty, you know.

Big Shrimp -- Drat.  I forgot to bring the shrimp sauce, which I'm sure was all I
would have needed to subdue you. -- Winter Shadows
P.S.  It's a very STRONG sauce, you see.

Mangy Polecat -- The good ol' boys down home used to recommend a top-dressing of used
motor oil for mange.  Have you tried that? -- Sweet Betsey
P.S.  You'll note that I'm double-sweet.  That's why you survived and got good
advice.

Jondeaux or however you spell it -- 9-10-11-13-15-15-11  QS  very low/low.  Bleh. --
Alourshin, apparently born to scum

Ugly Eddie -- I am puzzled by your comment.  Any hatcheck girl would hand you your
hat, you know.  There's nothing special about that. -- Alourshin

Dexter -- This is true. -- Winter Shadows

NEED A TURF WAR ALLIANCE??  Master Beru, Wretch, Reaper, and Xoan have come together
to form an Alliance for the TURF WAR in DM47 with no regards for experience in
competitions or even the game.  If you want to enjoy the thrills of the competition,
we have space for up to three more managers.  Contact Master Beru at
d_spinella@msn.com for more information or send a note to Master Beru at DM 29--Army
of Darkness.  If you are interested, we need to move quickly, since the contest
starts in January and there are a few requirements to meet to participate.  May your
blades find the chinks in your enemy's armor. -- Master Beru

ANNOUNCING THE NO-TOURNAMENT ARENA (81)

As an American I honor my cultural heritage by stealing any good idea.  This idea was
originally proposed by Lord Xiang in November 2005.  RSI will be opening the arena
(81) for teams willing to sign the following pledge:

*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this arena to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this arena.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena
1.  No tournament play for warriors in this arena (Dead tournament or otherwise).
2.  One team per manager.
3.  Teams start with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena.
5.  Twenty teams required, per RSI.
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead).
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

The main purpose of the Player Committee is to maintain fair play in the arena:
*  Warriors that participate in Tournaments will be sent to the Dark Arena until they
   are dead.  This means that the Player Committee has the power to send another
   player's warrior to the Dark Arena
*  Managers that abuse the rules of the Arena may be banned/transferred from the
   Arena.

The player with the most votes for Chairman will fill slot 1 [Chairperson] and that
term expires end of March 2007.
The player with the most votes overall will fill slot 5 and that term expires end of
November 2007.
The player with the second most votes overall will fill slot 4 and that term expires
end of September 2007.
The player with the third most votes overall will fill slot 3 and that term expires
end of November 2007.
The player with the fourth most votes overall will fill slot 2 and that term expires
end of May 2007.

During the month that the chairperson's term expires the Player Committee will select
one of the remaining 4 players to be the next chairperson.  During the month that any
member's term expires the arena will vote for a different player to join the Players'
Committee.

If you want to be a candidate for the player committee:
1.  Post a message in the Duel2 Forum at
    http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Forums
2.  E-Mail Deke at DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
3.  Send a Diplomatic Note to Doc LeGrand's Lab [ARENA 81]

There are 4 steps to joining this arena
1) Send in a new team rollup to RSI with the following pledge taped/stapled to the
rollup sheet, or transfer a ZERO FIGHT EQUIVALENT TEAM to Arena 81 and send RSI the
following form.

No-Tournament Arena (81)
*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

   name and intent to join Arena 81 and abide by the Arena rules.

     RSI will be processing overviews for this arena as soon as you send them into
RSI.
     The first turn will run in January 2007.  This will be a normal speed arena.
     While I am encouraging everyone to use TEAM MAINTENANCE it is not mandatory.
The intent is that players that run turns will run a full team.  One warrior teams
are discouraged and will a topic for the Player Committee to resolve.
     I also encourage players to join the Duel2 Yahoo Group for faster updates and
feedback.  http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/duel/

     Deke Young will not be part of the inaugural Player Committee, maybe later once
the Arena direction has been developed.
     Any questions can be directed to DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
     I will track Awards in Arena 81, which will be posted on a web site and included
in the following turn's newsletter.

The Honor of Sunset Award:
     The first team to reach 10 Team Kills.  In the case that there is more than one
team that achieves 10 Team Kills on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most kills.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Kills, I will prolong
the contest until one team has the most Kills in the Arena (it does not have to be
one of the teams that first reached 10 Team Kills.)

The Race to Victory Award:
     The first team to reach 75 Team Wins.  In the case that there is more than one
team that reaches 75 Team wins on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most wins.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Wins, I will prolong the
contest until one team has the most wins in the Arena (it does not have to be one of
the teams that first reached 75 Team Wins.)

The Commitment to Change Award:
     The first team to reach 125 Team Fights.  In the case that there is more than
one team that reaches 125 Team Fights on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
team with the most fights.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Fights, I will

prolong the contest until one team has the most fights in the Arena (it does not have
to be one of the teams that first reached 125 Team Fights.)  I hope I never give out
this award {figure it out on your own.}

The Team Advancement Award:
     The first team to graduate 5 warriors to ADM.  In the case that there is more
than 1 team that graduates 5 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
first team to graduate 6 warriors.  In the case that there is more than 1 team that
graduates 6 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the first team to
graduate 7 warriors, and so on.

The Iron Throne Award:
     The first team to hold the Duelmaster for 10 turns STARTING ON TURN 11.

The Stylemaster Award.
     The first team to hold the Stylemaster Award in 7 different styles, STARTING ON
TURN 11.  If two teams obtain Stylemaster Awards in 7 styles on the same turn, the
goal will be increased to 8 Styles.

Team Recognition Points:  The total recognition points for all warriors in the arena
The Iron Throne Ledger:  We will track who has been the Duelmaster every turn in
     Arena history.
Iron Throne Counter:  The total number of times a team has been the Duelmaster.
Composite Team Stylemaster awards:  The number of times a team has had any of the 10
     Stylemasters.  Having 2 Stylemasters = 2 points that turn.
Challenge win percentage:  How often your warriors win when they challenge.
Challenge Defender rate:  How often your warriors win when they WERE challenged.
Team Invitations:  Number of warriors graduated to ADM.
Team Graduation Rate:  Total team fights/Graduated Warriors.
Team Kill Percentage:  Total of team Kills/Team Fights
Team Death Percentage:  Total of Team Deaths/Team Fights
Team Revenge Rate: Number of Deaths/BloodFeuds Revenged (Note that the Dark Arena
     will be counted as not-revenged.)  You only get credit for one successful
     BloodFeud per death (though I encourage you to BloodFeud all 4 turns.)
Current Win Streaks:  Warriors that have gone the most turns without losing or
     missing a turn.
Team Yahtzee counter:  Number of times a team has gone 5-0 in a turn.
Team Bagel counter:  Number of times a team has fought without a win.
Team Dark Arena counter:  Number of times each team has used the Dark Arena.
The Most Feared (avoided) Team counter:  Number of turns that team was the most
     avoided team.

     We will create a web page just for Arena 81 category leaders.
     Hope to see you there. -- Deke
