                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
DULLENS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SWEET DREAM STRIKER, who flew up 19 points in the rankings 
after mashing D'ARTANGNON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like 
a basher in the top ten was WISHFULL WALL, who dropped 7 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with WS-THE WALL.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit 
back and say 'Challenge me'!  SUPERIOR TRICKS made a challenge against LU-LIGHTNING 
this week.  It's a proud day for the KIRKWOOD 1 stable, as their warrior, 
LU-LIGHTNING, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that ARENA FELINES II was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of ARENA FELINES II's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause CON ZAL CON2 beats feet every time ARENA FELINES II smiles at them. 
Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of WANTON SLAUGHTER, who 
was this week's most challenged warrior.  ABS of CON ZAL CON2 had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought ABS 
showed great skill and promise when it bested ULTIMATE FELINE.  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!  Big deal, so UTTERLY LARGE (LU) got mashed in the Dark 
Arena.  With hers face she was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka 
waka).  There's got to be more reason for the sending of UTTERLY LARGE (LU) to the 
Dark Arena than hers record (17-7-0).  Anybody got any ideas PERFECTION QUEST 13?  
Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as PIKE goes down under the sword of BEDTIME 
BASHER.  Thanks to this, BEDTIME BASHER now has 55 recognition points.  Remember:  
alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what 
happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the DULLENS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

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

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!
