                                      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!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for DANISH PASTRY, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
CYTOPLASMIC like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was CYTOPLASMIC, who dropped 22 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with DANISH PASTRY.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but 
bloody knuckles was THE DOGHOUSE's CHICHI-HOOEY, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by GOLGI APPARATUS.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, 
so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     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 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 BIO WARFARE beats feet every time THE DEATH 
SQUAD smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

E Coli -- That's the last time I buy a hotdog from a dwarf.  I was SOOO sick all last
night! -- Gerbent
P.S.  Damn straight I surrendered!  Once you knocked me down, I knew it was all over.
You runts always jump on those of us who have the good taste to be tall, if you get
the chance.  Well, I'm not having anything like that.

Red Blood Cell -- Well, darn!  You weren't supposed to take them ALL!  You were
really taking your "always-defeated" record seriously, weren't you? -- Ghost of Red
Fang
P.S.  So, what do I have now?  Ectoplasmic blood cells?  Hmm, are you by any chance
some kind of vampire?  I mean, biting on the neck like that, a guy's gotta wonder.
Will I rise again, a vampire myself?

Encloplasmic -- How can I fight you when I don't even know what you are?  You SOUND
like some kind of encyclopedia of plasmics, but I'm just not UP for fighting an
encyclopedia, so please be something else. -- Andilla

I call that selfish and unkind!  There was the Kung-Fu Master, a fellow Convincian,
he had more than a minute, and he didn't teach me one damned thing except to
recognize him as a troublemaker and stingy.  Bummer. -- Chichi-Hooey

Acco -- Where'd you come from?  Are you staying?  I've always liked chasing lizards.
-- Scruff
P.S.  I bet you'd make good boots.  You ever study boot-making?  It's a well-paying
job, if you're good at it.

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

14 September 2006
     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!
