                                      SPY REPORT

The four most recognized warriors from last turn were matched up this turn.  IRON
HANDS LEE, the Duelmaster, fought Lord Protector and champion's runner-up TUM.  As
you might expect, TUM easily bested IRON HANDS LEE, which left the throne open.  And
in a battle between the other two Lord Protectors, CHOLLA, Talcama's other champion
TV, beat CHASITY BELT.  With the throne open, and the top contenders losing or
inactive, it was a wide open contest.  At the end of the day, though, PEOPLE'S ELBOW,
slaughtering NEON DISCODANCER while defending himself against a bloodfeud, won the
recognition contest and was awarded the throne and immortality.  Next turn might be
another tough recognition battle, with lots of warriors grouped together near the
top!

Hottest Warriors on the sands:
    HE HATE ME (8-2) -- Win against MORROCCO MOLE
    SCOURGE (7-3) -- Win against PAUL
    BOOTER (7-3) -- Win against TECUMSEH

CENTER FOR OLDS went 5-0 this turn, including a victory in the Dark Arena.  Gaining
73 recognition points as a team, they easily won the Team on the Move award and tied
for most wins for the Current Top Team award.  EDIBLES, with only 3 losses, took the
award, though.

Up challengers:   2-2   Warriors increasing recognition class: 21
Down challengers: 6-3   Warriors decreasing recognition class: 9
Even challenges:  1-0

Most Challenged Warrior:    KEEPER OF SOULS of THE GUARDIANS II
     CREAM HORNS unbelievably bested KEEPER OF SOULS in a 3 minute challenge.

Most Avoided Team:          CENTER FOR OLDS by THE SHADOWS

ACK VERT of PENTARCHIE-18, while losing this turn, received his invitation to the
Isle of the Eye.  Congratulations to ACK and his manager

Death is no stranger in Talcama.  In the Dark Arena, two warriors killed.  #3 and
COMA TOAST showed everyone they want another chance at life.  Will their managers
give it to them?  Probably not, but they'll live at least a couple more weeks!
PEOPLE'S ELBOW, of course, fought off a bloodfeud attempt from NEON DISCODANCER and
gave SRETSAMLEUD yet another reason to bloodfeud.  Can PEON NECROMANCER do the job?
He'll only have one turn to try!  DESTITUTE NOBLE killed SHREE in his bloodfeud
vengeance of I SMELL BACON.  The other two Bloodfeud attempts were unsuccessful.

Finally, I get to talk about Talcama's tournament!  In the Adepts, LOWMAN and PEON
NECROMANCER both TV'd!  Well done!  The Apprentices saw HIS PROCTOLOGIST go 10
rounds.  WIGGLER made the runoffs in Novices and BORGARD and MONTPELIER TV'd the same
class.  VIGO was the only dead warrior to return, but he was the runner up in DEAD
CHAMPIONS.  And just in case two Runner Ups weren't enough for a single arena, DOC
STEELE brought home the Gateway TC prize.  Congratulations to all!

Finally, remember that it is the holiday season.  Get your strategies submitted early
and expect your results late! -- Sherik

Assur -- When I said "active" I simply meant any warrior participating in the
contest; I was attempting to use the same terminology you had used in your previous
Battle Reports.  Basically what I was looking for was an alphabetical list of all the
warriors participating in the contest so that they would be easier to look up.
Thanks for the help; that definitely makes it easier.  I think a nice addition would
be to have the warrior's manager listed there as well.  For example:
     Alton (8297) [J]
     Babooshka (8021) [AF]
     Bagdhad Bob (8039) [IF]
     etc.
It would really be nice if RSI would put some sort of notation in front of all the
participating warriors names (such as an "@") for the duration of the contest so the
tiresome ritual of needing to find a warrior in the Battle Report would not be
necessary.  Is it possible for something like that to be done?  Regardless, thanks
for running a good contest and for all of your hard work.  Now if I could just get
myself a decent team.... -- Alfredo "Lazy to the Core" Frothingslosh

     You think you're lazy; you've got nothing on us!  *grin*  I've passed your
     request along, but with the holidays and flu season and all, even if it does get
     done it won't be this turn.  And no promises that it'll get done even after
     Thanksgiving. -- Ed.

All Battle Royal Mgr. -- The avoid was not intentional.  I am sorry for the injustice
that this has caused to you all, especially to Floyd. -- Goat
P.S.  I will send the winner a gift certificate from RSI.  (Take note of addition to
prizes, Sherik.)

Phat Phat -- Ow, how many more times are you going to kill this ole Goat. -- Goat

All -- 9-5-8-11-15-15-21, AB, Kutu, goodbye, not enough wit, con? -- Goat

Grease Monkey -- That's twice, you fiend!  And after the shocking death of my dear
sister!  Have you no shame? -- Shree

Grease Monkey -- Let us see how quick your blade is! -- Borgard

Guardian -- Can't say I'm gonna be sad to see your baggers graduate.  Now you'll have
to find replacements to win. -- Assur

All -- Well, with my Wandering Star, I am all but giving up any slim hope I had to
compete in the BR.  But I couldn't resist!  I do, after all, play for fun! --
Assurnasirbanipal
P.S.  For those who want to know more about Wandering Star, read in the Bible the
book of Jude, verses 12-13.  Have fun reading his quotes!

Wow, what devastation.  Three challenges against three warriors I'd beaten before
resulting in three losses!  Oh, the shame! -- Assur

All -- My apology to the managers fighting in the Battle Royal.  The avoids were not
intentional. -- Goat

Assur -- I feel like an ass.  I know this is a fighting contest but...if you would
score a point to "Get Outta My Way" and "Dark Forest Inn" for the avoids (they could
have been challenging me) that should put me at -3.  If there is no objection from
the other managers.  Thanks for the listing of warriors. -- Goat

31 October 2003
     Come one, come all, to the greatest contest in Alastari!  The Third Annual Turf
War will be in North Fork (DM 47) starting in about 6-7 turns....  C'mon and get your
team some experience, and get declared!
     More info available in North Fork's newsletter.
     Bloody Sands. -- Asmo Dius, TCB

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex
