NOTES FROM ASSUR
    I have begun an audit on all the fights for the top six teams as well as
improvements to the BR scoring program and reports.  I intend to have this completed
by next turn.  In the meantime, be patient and continue to enjoy the contest.  I know
I am enjoying it, though I wish I were doing better.... :(

                                      SPY REPORT

     For your holiday spy report, you get me, MALIC!  To begin, PALADIN, don't get
smart with me.  I'd like to see you come in and take over this stupid job and read
all these cryptic writings from the commission flunkees.  I, for one, am hoping this
situation gets resolved quickly so that SHERIK can take this monumental task back.  I
don't like it, I don't want it, and the only reason I'm doing it is because it is
great PR for my reelection, err, I mean it is because I really care about Talcama.
     JOLEE BINDO, the Duelmaster, faced the veteran DAVE.  JOLEE fought hard and
wowed all the fans, but in the end, could not overcome DAVE.  The fight was really
too long for my taste.  In fact, before the second minute was up, I didn't have
anything left to taste at all and I was forced to choose between getting another
drink and watching the end of the fight.  I don't really know how the fight ended,
but I did hear that DAVE won.  Congratulations.
     The magic two minutes!  Winners this turn were KING COBRA, SHADRACH, COLON
CONVOY, THE CLOSER, GRUMPY GHOUL, and ANGEL.  Losing in two minutes were GREEN
REGENT, MULTIVERSE, HK-47, POGDISH, NYROND, and PWINGO.  Two minutes is the magic
number because almost everyone can finish a drink in two minutes and can go and get
another one after the fight, but before the next fight starts.  It is perfect timing!
One minute and you aren't quite finished with your drink, so you might forget to get
another before the next fight.  More than two minutes and you're empty before the
fight ends, leaving you annoyed because you can't enjoy the fight with a cold one!
Of course, nobody complains for those marathon fights.  In fact, those are perhaps
even better than 2 minutes.  You have no qualms about simply going to get another
drink, since nothing exciting is happening down on the sands anyway.  You can drink
and loiter and talk with your friends down by the bar while waiting for the next
fight to be announced.  This turn, PETIT TROLL BAVEUX and HOFFA had such a marathon
fight.  I almost wonder why they even tell us who were the least popular fights.
After all, nobody watched those fights for that very reason....
     The most challenged warrior was COLON CONVOY and the most avoided team was THE
FALLEN.  PENTARCHIE-18 avoided them twice and SOLO BROS. avoided them once.  Eighteen
teams received at least one avoid, but only THE FALLEN received three avoids.
     On the good day front, WASTELAND, STREET PIZZA, and THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD all went
4-1 for the turn.  Unfortunately for the teams in question, none were seen
celebrating victories in the taverns.  I hear the reason is that THE MUFFIN MAN and
THE UPRIGHT MAN had their warriors practicing even the night after their wins.  I
guess working for a mega manager isn't always a good thing.  Of course, UNDEAD don't
drink at all, at least not anything that is served in Talcama's bars.
     It turns out that putting SHERIK into custody has helped the investigation after
all.  We now know that many of the complaints that have been filed can be completely
ignored.  After all, you can't have been sold performance diminishing drugs disguised
as performance enhancing drugs that can't be detected as drugs at all by a party that
can't sell anything at all.  So, we've thrown out all complaints filed in the last
two turns from losing warriors who claim foul play in their losses.
     Merry Christmas to all.  The final fights for the year have been recorded.  So
let the parties begin and next time, surely, will be a whole new beginning. -- MALIC

Time to clean house while I still can, I guess.  Voices was:  13-5-6-17-17-13-13 SL,
Norm/Norm, +1 Att, -4 Dec (<--his downfall).  As of DA time his learned skills were:
24/17/24/6/18/15.  He simply wouldn't learn.  45 Total skills in 28 FE (including
tourneys)  1.5 skills per fight.  And he was just cursed, it seems.  I tried
everything to get this guy to win; I am usually pretty decent with slashers.  DM 18
seems to be the exception.  -- Tripwire

Stupify was:  11(+1)-16-10-10(+1)-21-7-11 WS, Great/Norm, takes Tremendous, he gave
me some good wins, but another stinker learning wise (even with the low wit) and he
is now getting too high up in the rankings to beat anyone.  Laugh at these champion
like skills:  12/7/16/14/7/8  Whohoo!  27 total skills learned spread all over. --
Tripwire

Vorn -- Damn!  Eight clashes--the rating you learned I have had forever and a day.  I
think I am going to try that again -- Fear

Spy Reporter Malic -- I think you had more to drink than you could handle.  You
reported me losing in a two minute fight, when in fact I won my fight in under 60
seconds.  I did take a copy of your report to the bar for my free drink anyway.  On
second thought, you can report anything you want if it means I don't have to pay for
my beer. -- Paladin

Talcama -- I have returned to the field, and I have brought my Legions with me. --
Seraphim/Golden Legion

All -- Hello. -- Toker
