     Cheulian Asri, Chief Spokesman for the Beggars' Guild, was perhaps a better 
judge of people than Cultic Grandmaster Sleeth, and he looked at the Trustworthy 
Scribe with deep suspicion.  "All you HAVE?" he repeated.  "Perhaps, but is that all 
the demonic sigils you MADE?"
     "An excellent question!" Sleeth said.  He bestowed an approving glance on the 
Beggar, then resumed frowning at the Scribe, Le Plume.  "Have you drawn more of these 
accursed sigils--"
     "Accursed, Sleeth?"  Le Plume laughed sarcastically.  "That's a fine word coming 
from you!"
     Grandmaster Sleeth bristled, and he was a man well designed by nature to 
bristle, being large and hirsute, with a low sloping forehead (but one which, none 
the less for that, concealed an astute brain) and massive shoulders.  "I will have 
you know that the Cult of the Crooked Bone is a respectable, legitimate, minor cult!"
     Le Plume snorted derisively.
     "And further," Sleeth said, for he had a bulldog's habit of not letting go of 
something once he got hold of it, whether it be something material or immaterial, and 
whosoever might claim ownership of it, "you have not answered our question: to wit, 
have you drawn any more of these sigils?  Come to that, where is the book you got 
them from?  It should not be floating around loose in our town, lest we be overrun 
with demons!"  His frown deepened as he further crushed the ashes formed by burning 
the torn-up sigils with one broad thumb.  "And beyond that, I do not recall having 
heard of any book which contains all the sigils you had with you, save only the Dark 
Demonicon, of which no copy is said to exist save perhaps in the libraries of the 
Witch of the Grey Wand and of a certain ancient mage in the most distant East, whose 
name I shall not utter here.  What book was it that held those sigils, how came you 
to have it, and what have you done with it?"
     "What an old fuss-pot you are!" Le Plume said.
     A shadow in the corner of the room stirred, disclosing the massive form of Dacio 
Torrans, the Ambitious Guard, who had been quietly drinking beer.  Now he crossed the 
room to stand beside the table, looming over the slender Le Plume.  "Those are good 
questions," he said.  "Answer them."  And he smiled.
     Le Plume, looking up at that smile, swallowed once.  For it was a peculiarity of 
Torrans that, though he could not take the shape of a tiger as so many of his kinsmen 
could do, he one fang, and it was long and wickedly curved, so that when he smiled, 
it seemed to other people that a tiger would have been preferable.  "I found the 
book," the Trustworthy Scribe said sullenly.
     Without speaking, his companions personified doubt.
     "I did!  It was in a leather sack in an alley, with six and a half pairs of 
dirty socks on top of it and nothing to identify the owner of the sack or the socks."  
He took a deep breath.  "But the socks--I saved them--are... peculiar.  I can't 
imagine the foot they would fit."
     "Thirteen socks of a strange shape?"  Sleeth sat back, and his frown was now a 
frown of deep concern.  "Were these socks by any chance gray with red clocks?"  When 
Le Plume nodded, the Grandmaster shut his eyes.  "It is a dark thing," he muttered.  
Opening his eyes again, he said, "Where is the book?"
     "In my room," the Scribe said.  "In my clothes chest, under my handkerchiefs."
     "Not your socks?"
     "No, the handkerchiefs."
     "Then there may still be time to avert disaster.  Let us go at once to retrieve 
the damned tome!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TOBIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with RICK JONES?  He actually 
beat THE DOGHOUSE's PUSSYFOOT, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at THE DEATH SQUAD.  DEAD MAN WALKING lost 8 points to SCARBOROUGH.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DEAD MAN WALKING will provide more easy wins...  
Try as he might, ANGRY SHEW wasn't good enough at persuading SHADOWCAT to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, SCARBOROUGH!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Edge -- A hearty welcome back to you.  Good to see some people showing back up in 
this fine city.  We have been lacking for teams recently... and I've been lacking for 
personals, personally.  Kudos on coming back as DM, the angry one just isn't ready 
quite yet to hold that spot.  Though it appears these 2 worlds will collide again for 
the throne. -- Street Legal, mgr. of The Death Squad

Juno -- I appreciate it, actually.  Y'know I felt like every time I turned a corner 
someone was waiting to attack me in hopes of weakening me for that first arena loss.  
My manager says I was merely paranoid but I swear there were forces at work behind 
the scenes.  Nonetheless you beat me fair and square and I now sleep much easier.  
THANKS! -- Dead Man (Still) Walking

The Doghouse -- No hard feelings whatsoever.  I know that your guildhouse has been on 
good terms with mine for quite some time so I always took it in good fun!  As frail 
as I was my skill level was enough to assure me a majority of wins, and avoiding 
death.  Though I cannot go into specifics, as my manager sees me as a long term 
warrior, I was bonused in most skill areas and came out with good faves (I'm bursting 
to reveal but alas I cannot)! -- Zero the Hero

Good luck to all at the tourney; somebody bring us at least a TV please! -- Street 

Angry Shew -- What a temper, eh?  You probably need to work on that, m'boy. -- Juno

Dead Man Walking -- Walk faster, go farther. -- Honey Pup

Visigoth -- I just don't feel like playing toady.  Take your stick and throw it for 
some other dog, okay? -- Pussyfoot

Scarborough -- Eh... not the Faire, huh?  Darn.  They used to have the BEST 
sausages.... -- Bowser

The shame, the ignominy!  Our only win this time was by Dim Hairy Thing (!) against a 
standby!  The horror, the shame! -- the rest of The Doghouse, really in it today

Edge -- Did we say "Hi"?  If not, consider it said. -- Leeta and the "warriors" of 
The Doghouse, the next-worst thing to standbys
P.S.  If you write personals, we'll write back.

Dim Hairy Thing -- What are you DOING?  You'll ruin my reputation! -- Tomath Woodman, 
chartered Convincian Hero and Destroyer of Monsters

Shadowcat -- In my better-paid days as a member of the Assassins' Guild, I would have 
laughed at you and then skinned you out for a trophy fur.  Now... I fear our 
arenamaster is something of a wimp. -- call me... Potter, once a nobleman in good 
sitting (noblemen don't stand) and a respected member of the Assassins' Guild, now 
reduced to "fighting" as a standby and hating every minute of it

22 October 2004
                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.


     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS
