                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in TOBIR. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  BIO WARFARE now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for ENCLOPLASMIC, who 
flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing ANDILLIA like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  GERBENT 
was overcame by E COLI and drops 5 points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the 
laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  TIPPI TURTLE did not fight this week so his 
title was forfeit.  In front of all the crowds, GOLGI APPARATUS took the Duelmaster's 
crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 
gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid MONTY PYTHON, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does TOBIR really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause BIO WARFARE beats feet every time MONTY PYTHON smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Manager: THawk

Street Legal -- Just a note to let you know I would like to fight for Andorian Honor
in the upcoming Civil War.  I'm already in contact with Manager. -- Indimar Fallon

Street -- Just took my first look at the Tobir newsletter.  I hope this contest is
the shot in the arm you're looking for. -- Indimar

Seraphim -- Is there anyplace you don't have a team? -- Indimar

Michael Palin -- I foresee that you have a real problem growing there.  You're
virtually undefeated, and it will make you over-confident.  You really need to lose a
fight more often, just to keep you humble.  Explain this to your manager, okay?  I
wouldn't want you to get on the wrong track. -- Andillia

Burnt Out Hippie -- Yes, well, I didn't expect you to burst into flames in the ARENA.
That was disconcerting to say the least, and it made me miss my stroke, WHICH,
obviously, is why I lost.  So next time, hmm, I should bring a fire extinguisher, I
guess. -- Chichi-Hooey

Red Blood Cell -- (innocent look)  I was just checking to make sure you were the
proper color of red!  It wasn't MY idea to spread you all over the arena, you just
got, well, carried away, you know? -- Gerbent

Russian Winter -- I've never played in snow before.  Once I get used to it, that
might be fun.  I'll have to think about this. -- Scruff

This Shiftyeyed Volunteer isn't worth the effort to bite.  Scrawny, no meat on his
bones, and he's been eating something... (sniff, sneeze) something that makes him
smell and taste funny. -- Red Fang

The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

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.
