                                      SPY REPORT

And the Duelmaster of Talcama, after 475 turns of dueling is none other than
NEOSPHINCTER, after getting a matchup with VASSAL, one of the many TP's in the arena.
As is so often the case, NEOSPHINCTER, as the Duelmaster, gets invited to the Isle of
the Eye next turn, making the day for the 5 TP's in the top 11 warriors.

The MAD SCIENTISTS returned to Talcama and the Battle Royal.  Welcome back, NEON
NECROMANCER!  I am doing the BR reports and hopefully got you in correctly this turn.
Live scoring really does help a contest and I'm doing my best.

3 teams went 4-1 this turn; BIG MEAN FISH, THE SHADOWS, and SHEPHERDS.  The first two
won the revolving team awards.  BORGARD carried his top unchartered recognition award
into the champions class for his final turn as an unchartered warrior.  PICKLE JUICE
is still the most popular (and oldest) warrior here, but this turn, HO HUM HO
captured the hearts of many by beating BOOTER.

17 warriors moved up a class, led by MARDUK in a big win over WONDER BRA.  Only 4
warriors moved down a class.  Challenges followed the normal pattern with up
challengers going 3-4, down challengers going 6-2.  Obviously, challenging up or down
is not what makes you win or lose, but challenging wisely.

And of course, everyone always wants to know the most challenged warrior.  This turn,
it was GRATCH.  And again, it was a TV that caught him.  WIGGLER made the TV
challenge and won it.  The most avoided team, if it means anything with the Battle
Royal going on, was WASTELAND by SHEPHERDS.

The longest fight was only 7 minutes with HANNAH beating ABSOLUTE ZERO.  The shortest
fight was EXAMPLE being shown one by RAMJET.

The hottest warriors now on the sands are HO HUM HO (7-3), TALON (7-3), SCOURGE (7-
3), BART (7-3), MIDNIGHT ANGEL (7-3), MARY (7-3).  What a long list!  These warriors
have fought every turn for the last ten turns and won 7.  Of course, IRON HANDS LEE
did even better than that, but he's gone now.  These are the warrior who have been
the best!  And everyone wants to be the best! -- Sherik

when you need them the most and the strength and wisdom to deal with all problems
that might foreshadow our future. -- Goat

His Proctologist -- Game on. -- Shepherds

Reihe -- I think my intelligence was a bit off on that one.  Not sure what I thought
you were, but that was not what I wanted to see.  Can I convince you that I was
having sympathy for your team's standing in the BR?  I didn't think so, but I had to
try. -- Assur

Freak -- Freak! -- Paul

P'Tit Gars -- You were in the wrong place at the wrong time. -- Hannah

Au contraire, I'm looking to help out Assur's pal, BWD, in his quest to graduate a
PR. -- Forged in L.A.

BR Comments
Ten turns into the BR and two teams are basically halfway to the goal.  We'll see if
they can continue their runs.  Guardian is dealing with graduations.  Manager doesn't
have to deal with replacements, but is there any way for him to continue with his
win/loss percentage?!?  Good job to both of them.  I'd say good luck, but I really
don't want either of them to have it!
     The biggest surprise for me has to be Jolly, holding up the rear.  Fortunes can
change rapidly in this contest, though, as Doc Steele showed last time, going from
last to respectability in a very short time.
     The Participation award goes to Phat Phat, recording one fight less than 80% of
the possible fights as scoring fights.
     Death looked like it was going to be very common early on, but since then,
Talcama has been without death with only 1 kill in the last 4 turns.
     Finally, I hope that with the holidays over, we see more participation in all
aspects of this arena.  That is my goal with the BR and the reason the prize is what
it is....
     See you all on the sands! -- Assur

ZalCon2 Updates (1/9/04)

     The contest will be starting on the turn due February 23rd, 2004 and run for 20
turns.
     Only one team will be allowed for each manager in the contest, regardless of
whether additional teams are announced as contest entries.  No exceptions for any
reason.
     The Style Master points should read that there is +1 point for beating a member
of your own style even if the warrior is not registered for the contest.
     Rolling points for consecutive turns as Style Master means that your warrior
gets the extra point every turn after the first 3 that he continues to hold the
title.
     The points for Quality Wins should be clarified to read the winning warrior is
ranked below by the number of recognition points needed for each bonus point at the
start of the fight.  For example, Warrior A (3-2-0, 17) beats Warrior B (4-1-0, 35)
and receives 2 bonus points under Quality Win for the 18 point difference in the
ranking.
     I believe that is all the clarifications for the moment, please feel free to
email, diplo, call or write me with any other questions or concerns about the
contest.

                                    CHAOTIC WINDS
     Once, long ago, the four Winds of Time descended upon Alastari like a TEMPEST of
epic proportions, they slew everything within their all-encompassing reach.  They
left nothing.  In their wake lay smoldering ruins.
     In their haste they sped towards the center of this great land like a colossal
giant would step across an ocean.  The four storms picked up momentum on their way
towards each other.  A collision was eminent.
     The first storm wind, the oldest and wisest of the four was named APEXALUS.  The
second, FLAGGSTAFF, was the quickest and loudest entity ever created.  The third Wind
of Time was MATRIATIN, neither old or young, quick or slow, but fierce and feisty all
the same.  The forth wind, ASSAMITHIUS, the youngest yet most creative in its means
of destruction.
     When finally they merged at the center of ALASTARI, an incredible destructive
explosion occurred.  And when the smoke and debris cleared they were one.  CHAOS was
born.
     And Chaos spread across the diminished lands reeking havoc and doom with its
passing, and destroying allover again that which already lay in ruin.
