                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  SWORD OPERA after a sorry 1-4-0 might want to consider abandoning the 
sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as BLACKEST PRIDE can 
attest...  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but CARNAGE 
CANARIES will tell you 110-92-9 is nothing to laugh at...  Practice pays for MAINE 
COON CAT, who pummelled RUDE BUDDHA, to pocket 21 points.  RUDE BUDDHA certainly had 
a baffled expression on his face, after losing to MAINE COON CAT and losing 22 points 
in the process!  Duelmaster I ATE A PUTY TAT from CARNAGE CANARIES is going for the 
gold, as he challenged IRONIC TAILS' MR. TWISTER.  Ooh, the excitement!  In SUNSET, 
nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, MR. 
TWISTER.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering 
milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in SUNSET avoid GRIM FANDANGO.  Like a pup with its 
tail between its legs, MEOW MIX scurried away from GRIM FANDANGO.  Oh, the shame!  If 
challenges were horses, SYRANO BLOODBANE could open up a fast food joint!  Call 'im 
brash!  Call 'im brassy!  Call 'im brave!  Call 'im sassy!  EMNITY will face SYRANO 
BLOODBANE, up by 37.  Aaaah, just call 'im dead meat.  Fixed fights?  Paybacks?  
Blind luck?  Whatever, EMNITY challenged SYRANO BLOODBANE, EMNITY the underdog by 37 
points.  Do my ears deceive me?  POWER THRUSTER (outclassed by 27 points) challenged 
LIBERATOR, in what promises to be a fight.(!) It's not whether you win or lose, but 
how many points you get (1).  Right, POWER THRUSTER?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  SUNSET, I leave you now.  
The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Wildlife Unlimited.  'Til next time--

Sons Of Satan -- It's an honor to know you fear my teams....  In fact, 4 of the last
5 turns Blackest Pride has been the most avoided.  Are there really that many
cowards in the arena?  I propose a no avoid pact with any that are interested; just
say so in the personals.  And from here on out any team that is caught avoiding me
the most will receive a challenge from every warrior I have in range the following
turn. -- Sylvester Frothingslosh

The Dark Path -- Welcome to Sunset!  Nice start! -- Blackest Pride

Air Attack -- Welcome back! -- Blackest Pride

Baumgarten -- 12-12?  Wow, I bet you wish Merlin was still your manager.... --
Asylum

Mr. Twister -- And just where is it Frothingsloshers go when...we pass on? ;) --
Sylvester "All the beer is warm down here!" Frothingslosh

     Oh no, does this mean you go to England? -- Ed.

Mosquito -- But imagine what I could do if I connected with just one shot! -- Power
Thruster

Street Legal -- I demand a rematch! -- Carnivore

Rude Bhudda -- Ok, let's get this party started.  I must admit that my warriors here
have a lot of chutzpah but are not uber warriors by any means.  I think if I can
beat your best warrior (your aimed blow perhaps?) with one of Total Parry warriors
then I will be happy.  Your lunger is pretty skilled of course but I think I can
teach him how to sit. -- Myrrdin Storm Flower Jones

Welcome Dark Path to the sands of Sunset!!  Our usual invite to stop by for a free
drink post-fights and the double B still stands! -- Stik, GF and TB

Floyd -- Now that was a first rate example of some vicious-ass Delarquan
downchallenging!!  I'm impressed but not intimidated.  If we're going to develop
this into any decent kind of feud, by the way, you should really pipe up in the
PA's, it gets old talking to one's self.... -- Stik

Puty Tat -- You know who's challenging, who will you be avoiding?? -- Syrano B.

Hi-Jinx -- Damn, that's two in a row now.  I've got to get my groove back! -- Drane

Sylvester -- Let's let the facts do my talking.  Your two teams versus mine.  I have
eight wins over five losses.  I don't know what got your panties in a bind, but suck
an egg. -- C. Canary

Argh!  Scummed in two fights!  This sucks. -- C. Canary

Redeye Love -- Lay off the chronic.  Thanks for the easy win though. -- C. Canary

Syrano -- Sure did see it. -- Puty Tat

Horns -- And you knew what to do with 'em, too!  Or is a sax a horn? -- Talper

Tiger's Tail -- Somebody should tie you up with your own filament. -- Ace
P.S.  Or maybe catgut.

Syrano Bloodbane -- Okay, okay, next time I won't try to bop you on the beezer right
at the beginning. -- Rudi Jamos

The Ambitious Guard was...not impressive. -- Lugo Beloski

Liquid Goliath -- You're an amazing student. -- Miranda Grace

Inertia -- This is true. -- Rudi Jamos, always looking for more inertia

Ronald Regan -- Hah!  Take that!  You and your kind make me sick and tired.  I can't
keep dancing these razors to the melody all night.  Tell Rogan and Emnity to stay
away from me too, cause I've been lifting weights. -- Razor Melody

I Ate A Puty Tat -- Hold on there!  I saw your shoulder touching the mat for "3",
and then that sucker punch came.  Anyhow, congrats and keep that Rude Dude outta
there for a bit, I'm goin' fishin'. -- Mr. Twister

Miranda Grace -- Despite the loss, well worth the wait to see your show again.
Perhaps we'll dance again. -- Liquid Goliath

Poison Beak -- You should have done it.  I'm looking for love in all the wrong
places. -- Red Eye Love

Contorter -- Look at the big brain on Brad -- Plump Friction

                                     DEATH FEST

     The ferocious ghosts of former glories whispered across the wind swept sands of
DM 59; agonizing incessantly due to the diminutive demise of the Delarq arena known
as Illis.
     Tattered banners and forgotten memories wailed in the wind for a dynamic death
march to dawn once more upon the blood stained sands of the Delarq slow arena.
     The distant call crying for  a declaration of restoration amidst the ruin of the
all but forgotten Delarq arena carried to the far corners of Alastari; drawing the
Devious, the Diabolical, the Dangerous and the Down Challenging to cross blades and
wage warfare among an assemblage of new stables managed by the Known and Unknown;
willing to spill fresh blood, while carving their destiny during 15 Rounds of contest
driven combat to be known as the "Illis Incredibly Diabolical Delarq Death Fest".
     A lone cloaked figure huddled by lamplight in a remote outpost near the
crossroads of ElseWhere and ElseWhen; feverishly formulating the foundational
framework for the dawning of the Delarq Death Fest in DM 59, complete with
Gladiatorial Commission sanctioned prizes to promote the growing thirst for a Delarq
Slow Arena Death Festival.

     Delarq Death Fest Opening Round debuts the first turn immediately following the
Summer 2004 F2F Tourney and continues through the completion of 15 consecutive
rounds.
     Death Fest points are Won or Lost ONLY in the DM 59 Delarq Slow Arena [Tourneys
DO NOT Add or Subtract from the Death Fest Point Scoring System]:

Death Fest Scoring Format:
Win =3D +2 pts
Loss =3D -1 pt
Kill =3D +5 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Death =3D -3 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Dark Arena Kill =3D +10 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Dark Arena Death =3D -5 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Revenged Blood Feud =3D +5 pts [successful Revenged Blood Feud provides Death Fest
contestants the opportunity to cancel out 3 pts for Death and 1 pt for Loss; while
gaining +1 pt overall for the Revenged Blood Feud in addition to the +2 pts for Win]

    DEATH FEST PRIZES will be awarded to the Top Ten Death Fest Stables on the basis
of Total Points*** accumulated during the 15 rounds of competition as follows:

1.  Favorite Weapon Knowledge for 1 (one) warrior ranked Initiate or higher on the
Final Round to be revealed by RSI to each of the Top Ten Death Fest Stables
2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters and NPCs [yet to be determined according to how
many DA Monsters and NPCs are available in DM 59 for Renaming]
3.  The Top Five Death Fest Stables will receive New Team Rollup Certificates as
follows:  1st (10), 2nd (8), 3rd (6), 4th (4) and 5th (2)
4.  Renaming Illis Arena for 6 months plus Receiving 6 months Free Play courtesy of
RSI will be awarded to the manager of the 1st Place Death Fest Stable
5.  Discussions are underway regarding a possible Special Award granted to the Illis
Iron Stable qualifiers who compete in 67 of a possible 75 fights during the course of
the 15 consecutive rounds of the Death Fest [Key Factor is How Many (?) stables will
be competing in the Death Fest without drawing away participation by current managers
in the remaining slow arenas!]  Therefore, it is important for all managers entering
stables in DM 59 for the upcoming Death Fest to contact RSI as soon as possible
regarding their participation in this contest so that a Final Ruling on the proposed
Illis Iron Stable Award can be issued by RSI.

***TieBreaker is determined on the Final Round by the DM 59 Newsletter Recognition
Rankings.  The stable with the Highest Ranked Active Gladiator is granted the
decision.  [Example: Warrior A and Warrior B are both listed in the Recognition
Rankings with 87 pts; however, because Warrior A is listed in the Recognition
Rankings ahead of Warrior B, then Warrior A is granted the TieBreaker Decision for
His/Her stable!]

     Opening Round Team Spotlight Bonus [minimum 15 paragraphs!]  Each Delarq Death
Fest competitor who writes a Team Spotlight featuring their Stable (Name) and
Managerial Alias [Gladiatorial Names Optional] in regards to competing in the Delarq
Death Fest will receive 25 pts added to His/Her opening round score.
     Illis Iron Stable Bonus [in addition to the proposed award awaiting RSI
approval!]  Any manager whose stable competes in at least 67 of the possible 75
fights during the 15 rounds of Death Fest receives 25 points added to His/Her final
overall score [this allows each stable the cushion of missing one round of
competition; plus up to 3 additional fights due to waiting for replacement rollups
from Deaths suffered either in Tourneys or during the Death Fest contest in DM 59
over the course of 15 rounds of competition!]

                                 TEN TURNS OF HELL:
                        The KLK Capture The Flag Competition

In the spirit of the ongoing effort to make arena play what it used to be (FUN!!), I
am proud to announce the KLK Capture The Flag Competition.  The competition will be
held in Jhans (DM-36, which has, by the way, grown in size equal to Talcama already).
:)  We are announcing this contest early to allow managers time to prep.

Rules:
     -- On turn 462 (due 8/4/04) the lowest ranked warrior on your team is given your
team's 'flag' (he is your initial flag defender).
     -- Starting on turn 463 (due 8/18/04) flags will be defended every turn and turn
463 is the turn scoring will begin.
     -- Fights involving flags are winners-take-all and a warrior can carry as many
flags as he can win.
     -- If a warrior holding a flag either A) goes inactive, B) loses to a stand-by
warrior or C) gets DA'd, he forfeits all flags he has and they are returned the their
original team's lowest ranked warrior.
     -- If you hold your own flag on an inactive warrior you receive NO POINTS that
turn.
     -- If a warrior graduates to AD holding flags starting on the next turn those
flags will be defended by the lowest ranked warrior on the team of the graduating
warrior.
     -- Scoring as follows for each turn:
          2 pts -- possession of your own team flag
          1 pt -- possession any other flag
          1 pt -- for each win
          1 pt -- for each kill
          1 pt -- for each award you receive in the newsletter
     -- You may enter as many teams as you like (per RSI rules) but each team is its
own entry.
     -- Tie-Breaker goes to the team that had the most points from flags.
     -- If still tied the tie-breaker will be the team that had the most points from
kills.  (It's the Delarq way.)
     -- The contest lasts 10 turns and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd
(based on highest point totals)

Prizes: (what you've been waiting on)
1st -- 3 know favorites potions*
       DA warrior named after winning manager
2nd -- 2 know favorites potions*
3rd -- 1 know favorites potion*

* These are full favorite potions (weapon, rhythms and tactics) and can only be used
on warriors with at least 4 FE.

     How's that for paying out? (grin)  Even if you think that it's all about the TC,
these prizes should be enough to draw you in.  (You know who you are.)
     I hope to see friend and foe alike come to Jhans.  Legion, Froths, and all the
others...this is your personal invite.  Can you win?  Can you survive 10 turns of

Hell in Jhans?
     Note:  Special thanks to RSI for helping make this contest possible.  Thanks
guys!
