                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for MALCORN.  The guys at BLOODSWORN like 
really pulled together to get a 3-2-1 this turn, moving up by 3.  Oh, wow, like the 
Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all MALCORN.  He got the most challenges.  
(But what about proposals?) Like, SLAYVER must be pretty gutsy!  He Bloodfeuded the 
Duelmaster from TRIPLE CROWN.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  Was that a 
tear I saw in SLAYVER's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't WHIRLAWAY 
fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said MALCORN's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  BLOODSWORN was MALCORN's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what DARK CREATION's been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from BLOODSWORN, that's fer 
sher.  People were asking me did THE GRINCH REALLY challenge PATTERSON PINE?  (all 
right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but PATTERSON PINE wants me to write about it since he was defeated by THE 
GRINCH.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (SLAYVER vs. WHIRLAWAY, that 
is.) Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write! 
(Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  MALCORN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Revenant -- Obviously, Jess had hold of the wrong end of the stick last time.  You're
an excellent STUDENT, but you don't teach worth a damn. -- Patterson Pine
P.S.  Where are MY cookies, eh?

Somnabulant -- Wake up, dammit, I'm talking to you!  I just hate it when a man falls
asleep while I'm trying to talk to him. -- Tree Shadow
P.S.  You never know, I might have something important to say.

Fierce Tiger -- Yeahyeahyeah, but the real question is, do you burn brightly?  This
is critical and will decide the whole course of our date. -- Jessalin
P.S.  Because if you don't burn brightly, I'll have to make other lighting
arrangements, for one thing.

Orcs, orcs, and more orcs.  The hard part would be NOT capturing one. -- Periwinkle
P.S.  And they eat like teenaged boys.

The Osksi Noble should go HOME.  He shouldn't be hanging around here, getting into
trouble.  We can do our OWN trouble. -- Hob L. D'Hoy
P.S.  Besides, he didn't teach me anything except a probably misplaced scorn for
Osksians.

Varekai -- I'm glad you had an enjoyable experience before death, but frankly, I'd
rather be alive and just going along steadily than hit a peak and die. -- Jessalin

Whirlaway -- I've got one fight left.  I will try to avenge Varekai.  I understand
she challenged you, but a Bloodfeud must be settled. -- Slayver

Tree Shadow -- Uuuunmnhh...ouch...uuuggg... -- Somnambulant

Desalonian Ruk u-- I hope all this brawling pays off at some point.  Otherwise we're
just ruining our records, but it is fun. -- Homunculus

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.
