                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail WILLAF!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, O. FISH fought FRATSFA SLAVE and gained 16 points and 
contributed to PUNNY AMINALS' 3-2-1.  O. PUN PLEEZJ has lost to CAT MAN DON'T, 
falling 10 points, while helping make PUNNY AMINALS a 3-2-1 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and FELIX remains WILLAF's top warrior for 
another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  ARENA FELINES has cause to stand tall, as 
they were WILLAF's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided ARENA FELINES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
YAMABUSHI.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that O. PUN PLEEZJ from 
PUNNY AMINALS was WILLAF's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that WILLAF has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, WILLAF, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in WILLAF again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Felix -- Well done, sir! -- Peach Nutt
P.S.  I needed a cat-nap.

Cat Man Do -- Not this time, pussycat.  Unless it's "Cat man do surrender." -- O. Pun 
Pleezj

That Convicted Thief was a joke!  I laugh at him, haw haw! -- O. Fish

As do I. -- Justa Fox

And just what, exactly, is a Malcorn Insurgent doing way up here?  Ah... he's one we 
captured--doubtless while he was engaged in criminal activites in the southern 
provinces--and sentenced to fight in the arena till he dies, yes?  Good! -- Punh

P.S.  And if he escapes, I will track him down!  My cousin is not the only one with 
detective ability.

22 October 2004
                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE 
CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
