                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Coming up with 
a solid 4-1-0 outing, SPQR has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for CORNELIUS SULLA, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was COLD FUSION, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with JUNO.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in 
common?  They are both the most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  
Drawing on all of his experience as a 9-3-0 warrior, ZERO THE HERO went for the 
Duelmastership against I ATE MY WORM this week.  Well, everybody's pal I ATE MY WORM 
moved his record to 13-1-0 by defeating ZERO THE HERO in the Duelmaster's Title Bout 
and gaining 13 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, 
so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TOBIR arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE DEATH SQUAD, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does TOBIR really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause FLAMETHROWERS beats feet every time THE DEATH SQUAD smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, VISIGOTH went 
after BOWSER, who was higher by 20 points.  Well, when the dust settled, VISIGOTH 
defeated BOWSER.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, 
DUM HAIRY THING was mashed by REMUS, who let DUM HAIRY THING know that killing 
members of SPQR is a no-no.  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 TOBIR giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you 
can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one 
already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

                                 TEN TURNS OF HELL:
                        The KLK Capture The Flag Competition

In the spirit of the ongoing effort to make arena play what it used to be (FUN!!), I
am proud to announce the KLK Capture The Flag Competition.  The competition will be
held in Jhans (DM-36, which has, by the way, grown in size equal to Talcama already).
:)  We are announcing this contest early to allow managers time to prep.

Rules:
     -- On turn 462 (due 8/4/04) the lowest ranked warrior on your team is given your
team's 'flag' (he is your initial flag defender).
     -- Starting on turn 463 (due 8/18/04) flags will be defended every turn and turn
463 is the turn scoring will begin.
     -- Fights involving flags are winners-take-all and a warrior can carry as many
flags as he can win.
     -- If a warrior holding a flag either A) goes inactive, B) loses to a stand-by
warrior or C) gets DA'd, he forfeits all flags he has and they are returned the their
original team's lowest ranked warrior.
     -- If you hold your own flag on an inactive warrior you receive NO POINTS that
turn.
     -- If a warrior graduates to AD holding flags starting on the next turn those
flags will be defended by the lowest ranked warrior on the team of the graduating
warrior.
     -- Scoring as follows for each turn:
          2 pts -- possession of your own team flag
          1 pt -- possession any other flag
          1 pt -- for each win
          1 pt -- for each kill
          1 pt -- for each award you receive in the newsletter
     -- You may enter as many teams as you like (per RSI rules) but each team is its
own entry.
     -- Tie-Breaker goes to the team that had the most points from flags.
     -- If still tied the tie-breaker will be the team that had the most points from
kills.  (It's the Delarq way.)
     -- The contest lasts 10 turns and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd
(based on highest point totals)

Prizes: (what you've been waiting on)
1st -- 3 know favorites potions*

       DA warrior named after winning manager
2nd -- 2 know favorites potions*
3rd -- 1 know favorites potion*

* These are full favorite potions (weapon, rhythms and tactics) and can only be used
on warriors with at least 4 FE.

     How's that for paying out? (grin)  Even if you think that it's all about the TC,
these prizes should be enough to draw you in.  (You know who you are.)
     I hope to see friend and foe alike come to Jhans.  Legion, Froths, and all the
others...this is your personal invite.  Can you win?  Can you survive 10 turns of
Hell in Jhans?
     Note:  Special thanks to RSI for helping make this contest possible.  Thanks
guys!
