                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MALCORN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-1 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, STARBASE 5, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see MIYAMOTO win a fight and gain 22 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MIYAMOTO beat BARTHOLOMEW and BARTHOLOMEW lost 19 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, THE 
GRINCH has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as SOMNAMBULANT takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but 
why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, MALCORN?   
     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?  DARK CREATION was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like 
TERMINUS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask 
me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, AVERY was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego 
on this one, but QUASIL has challenged up by 26 in an attempt against BET TWICE.  My 
sides still hurt from laughing about BET TWICE losing and giving QUASIL 18 points of 
recognition.  Ha ha ha ha!!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  A big yahoo goes out to AVERY this turn, 
for revenging TERMINUS' bloodfeud against DARK CREATION's warrior ISITWALENGCENGCE.  
Heh, heh, heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of MALCORN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Wind Rider -- You won me a few drinks at the Victory Tavern from Quasil.  After you
tore him apart he thought you'd do the same to me. -- Avery

Rock Maple -- Time to find a new scimitar supplier. -- Quasil

ISITWALENGCENENGCE -- I had high hopes for Vorn.  I hope my warriors will repay you
in kind. -- Carick

Avery -- Ah, heck, I hate being blindsided like that.  Good work, though. -- Wind
Rider

Quasil -- Don't expect ME to be charming, I leave that to our resident bag of hot
air, aka Wind Rider.  I'm ticked.  TWO good swords broken in one fight.  Gods, it'll
take me FOREVER to pay off the loan I had to buy 'em, and now I have to buy NEW ones.
Some days, it just isn't worth kicking down the door. -- Rock Maple the disgusted
P.S.  Yeah, yeah, okay, you did well.  Considering.

Lutherax -- I've been in consultation with the science bofos about you, and I see it
all, I *understand* you now!  You're a cross between Lex Luthor (don't know who he
is, but I'm told he's Not Mr. Nice Guy) and anthrax (which I'm told is something you
get in the mail that's even worse than bills).  So, it was clearly my duty to knock
you down and trample you.  Which I did. -- Mossrock

P.S.  I wonder if there's a team of Science Bofos in the arena system anywhere?  I'm
sure they could explain lots of things which are mysteries to us more ordinary
people.

Bartholomew -- I am surprised that Dr. Seuss let you out of the hospital, since you
are so clearly manic depressive, and sociopathic in both extremes.  (I've been
consulting Science Bofos, too, so there!)  Nobody but a Bad Boy with Serious Problems
would have turned that fight around and defeated me. -- Redbird

Simulacrum -- The Science Bofos tell me that your name means "golem," or something
like that.  You're mean enough for one, sufficiently lacking in fellow feeling and
all.  But then, you're also Rirorni, and we all know what THEY are like.  No need to
invoke the inhumanity of golems to explain the nastiness of a Rirorni. -- Stump
P.S.  Darned young hot-shot.

Quasil -- You made an excellent recovery. -- Wind Rider

20 September 2007
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....
