                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ALJAFIR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
MIDDLE WAY is pushed out of top team by COOL WORDS, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 
this turn.  The HEROESANDFOUNDONES guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  This turn 
ATTILA THE HUN challenged VINN WULF in what was ALJAFIR's Title bout.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ATTILA THE HUN remains ALJAFIR's top 
warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Vile Vizier until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  DEATH INCARNATE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ALJAFIR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided DEATH INCARNATE stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was COOL WORDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that GRISHORT 
HURM from MIDDLE WAY was ALJAFIR's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave 
attempt, REASTY from COOL WORDS challenged up 22 points to fight XAVIORA YOHL from 
the MIDDLE WAY stable.  REASTY perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it subdued 
XAVIORA YOHL and ended up with 50 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ALJAFIR has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ALJAFIR and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ALJAFIR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Atilla the Hun -- Yeah, yeah, I know there wasn't a lot else you could do but
challenge me, and the other couple would've maybe been a bad style match.  But that
doesn't make me like it any.  I was hoping to hang onto my winning record, something
of a rarity in our team, for, well, until graduation, if such should be my lot.  You
haven't helped that any. -- Vinn Wulf
P.S.  Right, "Why should you care?"  No reason, but if you get to state your views, I
get to state mine.

Reasty -- Well, heck.  Yeah, it's an unusual word.  Big deal.  If you had a bigger
vocabulary to begin with, you probably wouldn't have had to ganch me to "prove your
point," or whatever. -- Grishort Hurm
P.S.  What does a golem know about "cool," anyway?
P.P.S.  But I did enjoy the resting in the Infirmary for a few days, except for the
food.

Aim Bitter Hammer -- (smug smile)  YOU can be bitter, if you want.  I see no need to.
-- Stelra Tirins

Aim Obtuse Hammer -- How acute Hammer was in naming you.  Not that you would realize
it, as you seem to me to be TOTALLY lacking in the ability to get a point.
Fortunately, I wasn't trying to give you a point, I was trying to smash you down, and
it seems to have worked.  Good.  My day is complete. -- Tamarin Mellirn

Yellow Orc -- (squinting)  Don't listen to Tamarin's advice on colors, she's nuts.
Blues, that's what you need to wear. -- Xaviora Yohl

Fintan of North Fork -- Well, of course I'm a trouble-maker.  What else is an
intelligent and thoughtful man to do?  But I don't go for the "rabble-rousing" that
you favor.  Behind the scenes and subtle, that's my alley. -- Grishort Hurm

Hamir of Mazgourrah, master of unarmed combat -- When you put it like that, how could
I doubt? -- Stelra Tirins

Grungy -- You left FINGERPRINTS all over my records! -- Lex Tethro, Financial Scribe
P.S.  Of course, that might make people believe YOU are responsible....
P.P.S.  Hey, if I don't get a new opponent, I'm not doing a new personal.

Janky -- (whimper) -- Kellechi the Dwarf, Determined Beggar
P.S.  That was the response called for by the wimpy Beggars' Guild here.  My own
response is, "Watch your back, sucker.  I'll get you in an alley."

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

*Find a Partner

*Declare your intentions in the Stormcrowe newsletter to enter before the first turn 
of the contest.  You may also email or diplo Master Darque.

*Each manager entering the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse must submit one (1) Team Roll-Up 
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:

*One (1) +1 Bonus Potion
*Favorites Knowledge for one (1) Warrior
*Undisclosed amount of Team RU Certificates

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.

coordinator.  He may be reached by email at rebelnerfherder at yahoo dot com or by 
diplo in DM 45 (Darque Forces-428).

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....
