                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MALCORN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  TERMINUS turned their 2-3-0 turn 
into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MOSSROCK win a 
fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AVERY beat WIND RIDER and WIND RIDER 
lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  SOMNAMBULANT challenged MALCORN's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, MALCORN 
may be getting bland, as THE GRINCH stays top dog in the city.  Drake's Barbecue, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
MALCORN's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  STARBASE 5 was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DR. SEUSS.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, MIYAMOTO was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in MALCORN to get a drink than Drake's 
Barbecue!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of MALCORN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Malcorn -- My warriors convinced me to sponsor them again so that they could make a
glorious return to the arena sands.  They obviously have a lot of rust to shake off.
-- Carick, Manager of Terminus

Malcorn City Guard Captain -- I hope that Ambitious Guard I fought is good at
investigations because his combat skills were highly questionable. -- Avery

     We run many different guards through the arena, as part of their indoctrination
     and training.  After all, the time may come when they have to subdue a drunken
     gladiator. -- Arenamaster Landon

Wind Rider -- I suppose that's what you call a 'Hatchet Job'  Nice work, I still hurt
a week later. -- Quasil

Wendigo -- You know, we should be allies.  We should be working together against the
surcharge of machismo in the arena.  We could do good work together... if you didn't
bury me in the sand.  Getting sand out of my feathers is the pits. -- Redbird

Yertle the Tertle, ah, I mean, Turtle -- May your innards rust or rot or whatever is
appropriate for a pestiferous golem like you!  May you get sand in your gears.  May
your lubricating fluid go rancid on you.  May your existence be a misery and a
mockery. -- Stump the moderately annoyed

Quasil -- Ah... blow you down?  I had the wind in my sails?  (Where's my script-
writer, darn it?  I need some GOOD comments.)  Well, look, in the absence of the
half-wit who thinks up clever things for us to say, let's just face the facts here.

You disengaged my ARM, and I needed it, and then you tried to steal my INITIATIVE,
and I needed THAT, too.  So of course I came down on you like a blue norther.  What
did you expect? -- Wind Rider

Varpulis Rukh -- I view you with deep suspicion.  Jorja won't try to explain your
name to me, but she says it indicates a big, mean, predatory, flying creature, like a
giant eagle or maybe even a dragon.  You don't look like a big flying thing, eagle or
dragon or moth or whatever, but still, I'm not taking any chances. -- Mossrock

Boss -- Ha ha.  Not mine, turkey. -- Rock Maple the incredibly charming and tactful

Convicted Thief Hariven -- Prove it and I might be interested.  As it is... you're
just one more petty criminal making excuses. -- Rock Maple

15 managers have announced for the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse!!!!!!  There is still 
time to join and make a name for yourself in one of Alastari's fiercest contests!  I 
must correct a mistake in the previous announcement.  I incorrectly called it the 
Slaughterhouse 2, but in reality, this will be the third installment of the 
Slaughterhouse!

HOW TO JOIN

of the contest.  You may also email or diplo Master Darque.

Certificate.  Only certificates will be accepted for entry.  All certificates 
submitted will be used during the course of the contest as prizes.

*RU certificates must be received on or before the first turn of the contest which is 
Stormcrowe Turn 263 (running approximately November 27, 2007).

RULES and SCORING

Rules and Scoring information for the Slaughterhouse will be posted every turn in the 
Stormcrowe newsletter beginning with Turn 260 and in a final all arena ad in 
November.

PRIZES

ENDURANCE AWARD:  One (1) +1 Bonus Potion will be given to every team that competes 
in 60 of the 65 contest fights.

KILL MASTER AWARD:  The individual manager with the most kills will receive a Limited 
Immortality Potion.  This potion may be applied to one (1) warrior.  He/she will be

TOP TEAM AWARD:  Each manager on the winning team will receive the following prize 
pack for their Slaughterhouse Dominance:

Special note from RSI on prizes:  All contest prizes must be used within three 
months.  All contest prizes may only be used on a living warrior on the participating 
contest team in DM 45.  The immortality potion may resurrect a warrior one time, 
after a death in DM 45 only, after which time the potion disappears.

Ok, ok, you can stop not-talking about TOGS VI already, it is coming, slowly but
surely, like a giant, over-fed, greased slug sliding down a gravely driveway.  We're
looking for new-comers, old-timers, in-betweeners, fence-sitters and Delarquans to
come on out and participate.  Just think, you could be the next Pinky & the Brain
pairing (a la Creepster & Manager), or maybe you'll be the team that crushes all in
its path on the way TO UTTER AND COMPLETE TOGS DOMINATION!!!!!!  [note:  insert
sinister cackle if it helps you complete the picture]

There will be a few minor changes, so let's recap the rules from top to bottom:

1.  Each TOGS team consists of two managers.  After the contest starts, there will be
no switching partners whatsoever, so choose your teammate wisely.  TOGS VI will last
for 13 turns, so pick a partner you can stand for 6 months or so.

2.  The TOGS entry fee is 2 team setups per manager.  This means 4 setups per TOGS
team.  This entry fee is required before the start of the tourney with no exceptions
being made.  This is to ensure that nobody gets screwed if a team or manager decides
to back out early.  To pay the entry fee either:
     a)  send $10 cash/check/money order/ or whatever to me personally at:
          Paul Jokelson
          115 Moss Ave. #201
          Oakland, CA 94611
     b)  get RSI to send me 2 team setup gift certificates.  Sorry, no credit cards
         and no old teams you have lying around will be accepted.

3. TOGS point system:

Fights: 

10 points for winning on your up-challenge against another TOGS warrior.
 7 points for winning on your even challenge of another TOGS warrior.
 7 points for winning on another TOGS warriors challenge.
 7 points for winning a random match-up against another TOGS warrior.
 4 points for winning on your down-challenge of another TOGS warrior.
 4 points for winning a random match-up against a non-TOGS warrior.

Changes this TOGS: 

** 10 points for any challenge by the DM, UP OR DOWN!!
** 4 points for winning a random match-up against your TOGS partner's warrior.
To state the obvious, there are 0 points if you challenge your partner.

** 4 points for winning a bloodfeud attempt against you by a non-TOGS warrior

You will not get any points if you challenge or get challenged by a non-TOGS team
(with the exception of the above-stated rule if you get bloodfeuded), so use your
avoids wisely if you think someone is out to get you.

Spots/Ads

5 points for every spotlight written by any team member.  1 per manager per turn.

The minimum length of a spotlight to receive points is 1/2 column in the newsletter
(that's 31 lines-each line 85 characters across) and we will be completely firm on
this.  In addition to the length criteria, spotlights will not be given points if
they are in any way plagiarized or if they are not Duelmasters or fantasy related.
We will be the sole judge of this.  If you're unsure if we will judge something to be
Duelmasters or fantasy related, then e-mail me before you write the spotlight and
ask.  We reserve the right to take points away from a spotlight after they are given
if we judge at later time that the spotlight has been plagiarized.

-5 points per manager per turn every time a manager does not at least write one
personal ad.

4.  TOGS VI will start in arena 60 shortly after the Winter Face-to-Face (turn due
Feb 21, Aradi turn 436) and as mentioned before will last for 13 turns.  There will
be multipliers in the later rounds, which means that all points accumulated by a team
on turns 10 and 11 will be multiplied by 1.5 and all points accumulated by each team
on turns 12 and 13 will be multiplied by 2.

5.  Soultaker and Nuln will be the sole arbiters of any dispute that may arise, with
props to Sentinel for doing the score-keeping as always.  Whine all you like, we will
be glad to provide comfortable chairs and the cheese of your choice.

And there be the rules.  If you look closely, you'll notice there were a few minor
changes and additions made from the TOGS V rules.  They are as follows:

-- The Snotman & Nuln rule:  Last TOGS Snotman and Nuln randomly matched up something
like 4-5 times, so we basically decided out of pity to now give a small amount of
points (4 in this case) for winning a random against a teammate, so that you're not
completely screwed by having 2 of your 10 warriors get 0 zero points automatically.

-- Scaling Down Points for the DM:  Previously a TOGS DM would get 10 points *in
addition* to whatever challenge points they got.  This was to keep the DM from being
penalized for being at the top and give people something to fight for.  However, it
was a bit too much of an award and we decided to scale it back and eliminate the
bonus, but give full upchallenge credit whenever the DM challenges.

-- Bloodfeuds from outside TOGS teams:  This incident came up last TOGS, and it was
felt that if a person killed a non-TOGS warrior in a random, they shouldn't have to
be potentially locked into 4 turns of getting 0 points.  So we've added an additional
rule which now gives 4 points if you win when bloodfeuded by a non-TOGS warrior, at
least giving you some way to get points if you're locked into a non-TOGS bloodfeud
instead of being basically removed from the contest for 4 turns.

And lastly...

-- Team Names:  This was not listed in the rules, but to make things more festive, at
the suggestion of Manager we have decided to have the added dimension of team names!
Yes, no more boring rankings with Team 4 edging out Team 7.  Just picture reading a
TOGS turn report now, with something along the lines of "Team Fiery Starfish
obliterated Team Superior TOGSlings," just as one example.

We hope to see you all there....
