                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TOBIR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, TOTEM.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with MICHAEL PALIN?  He 
actually beat PISSED PIZZA GUYS' FAKE PHONE NUMBER, and walked away with 23 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MONTY PYTHON while they watched MICHAEL 
PALIN clobber FAKE PHONE NUMBER.  She lost 13 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for PISSED PIZZA GUYS' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster WINDOW WING SIGN.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  What do people see in 
PUSSYFOOT?  His 6-5-0?  THE DOGHOUSE ain't talkin', but he's got 25 points.  I hate 
going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that ZERO THE HERO gets in.  
He fights people like CATKILLER, 9 points below.  I thought ZERO THE HERO showed 
great skill and promise when he beat CATKILLER.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Warriors of TOBIR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

ZalCon2 Updates (1/9/04)

     The contest will be starting on the turn due February 23rd, 2004 and run for 20
turns.
     Only one team will be allowed for each manager in the contest, regardless of
whether additional teams are announced as contest entries.  No exceptions for any
reason.
     The Style Master points should read that there is +1 point for beating a member
of your own style even if the warrior is not registered for the contest.
     Rolling points for consecutive turns as Style Master means that your warrior
gets the extra point every turn after the first 3 that he continues to hold the
title.
     The points for Quality Wins should be clarified to read the winning warrior is
ranked below by the number of recognition points needed for each bonus point at the
start of the fight.  For example, Warrior A (3-2-0, 17) beats Warrior B (4-1-0, 35)
and receives 2 bonus points under Quality Win for the 18 point difference in the
ranking.
     I believe that is all the clarifications for the moment, please feel free to
email, diplo, call or write me with any other questions or concerns about the
contest.

                                    CHAOTIC WINDS
     Once, long ago, the four Winds of Time descended upon Alastari like a TEMPEST of
epic proportions, they slew everything within their all-encompassing reach.  They
left nothing.  In their wake lay smoldering ruins.
     In their haste they sped towards the center of this great land like a colossal
giant would step across an ocean.  The four storms picked up momentum on their way
towards each other.  A collision was eminent.
     The first storm wind, the oldest and wisest of the four was named APEXALUS.  The
second, FLAGGSTAFF, was the quickest and loudest entity ever created.  The third Wind
of Time was MATRIATIN, neither old or young, quick or slow, but fierce and feisty all
the same.  The forth wind, ASSAMITHIUS, the youngest yet most creative in its means
of destruction.
     When finally they merged at the center of ALASTARI, an incredible destructive
explosion occurred.  And when the smoke and debris cleared they were one.  CHAOS was
born.
     And Chaos spread across the diminished lands reeking havoc and doom with its
passing, and destroying allover again that which already lay in ruin.
