                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in SOLVEN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, KELLUMBO'S KIDS, but 
SERPENTINE INC. was just too good to be stopped.  The guys at DUNCES UNITED like 
really pulled together to get a 1-4-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  What was the name 
of that team who got 4-0-0 this turn for a total 32-30-1 you ask?  (Sure)  ANDORIAN 
WIMPS' their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for MONTY PYTHON?  
SERPENTINE INC.'s proud of him after beating HOW--LITE and getting 18 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  VILMA got smashed by RUMSFELD, and lost 11 points!  And I 
was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
CLINTON.  Aren't THE DEMOCRATS proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE REPUBLICANS was SOLVEN's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why KELLUMBO'S KIDS' been 
avoiding THE REPUBLICANS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is 
SKEEMER popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of SOLVEN!  He's got a 
10-5-0, is that good?  See if I ever talk to BEAR MARKET again!  FLAT TAX was so low 
when She challenged she.  Hhmph!  BEAR MARKET beat FLAT TAX.  No surprise about that. 
Really I'm not surprised BEAR MARKET would do such a scummy thing, either.  BLIND BOY 
must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged 
SCHWARZENEGGER.  14 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought 
BLIND BOY showed great skill and promise when he overcame SCHWARZENEGGER.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All SOLVEN ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  So SERPENTINE INC. has one more turn to Bloodfeud OLD MCDONALD's 
TOYS.  Big deal.  FANG's dead.  What's the point?  Ya just gotta go on.  Don't look 
back...  KLUTZ really fought hard against SIMPLISSITUS.  That'll teach DUNCES UNITED 
not to go and kill any of ANDORIAN WIMPS' guys again, huh!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is 
that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Judge -- Well, well, well.  Another 2-3 turn eh?  That's gotta sting a bit huh?  Oh,
and what's that?  I was most avoided, and mostly by you.  Yup, it's gotta sting,
brother, it's gotta sting. -- Detective Kellumbo

Wimpy -- Nice 1-4 turn you had there.  Hope your pitiful PA about Prince makes up for
it this turn because that's all the yappin' you got in ya. -- DK

Pishtush -- You are a lucky devil!  I was all set to come out there and kick your
butt this turn, but Kellumbo says I am sitting this one out.  Something about timing
me for some tourney.  You had better be ready in a turn or two, pal, because I am
coming for you. -- Maximus

Schwarzenegger -- Hey, I figured it was just a shot in the dark. -- Blind Boy

Rumsfeld -- I just "didn't see" the point in letting you hit me more than that.
*chuckle* -- Blind Girl

Pishtush -- Well fought!  You took my best shot...heck, you took a dozen of them.
Well done and good luck. -- Homeless Prince

Inarinda -- Well, I see you have nothing left you can teach me.  It's on to bigger
game. -- Skeemer

Kellumbo -- Of course you are correct.  We were expecting Max to beat up on poor old
Toady, but we were expecting/hoping that Max would teach him a pile of skills.  Wrong
again.  Pishtush will try again this turn. -- Wimpy

Snake In The Grass -- You do very well for a guy who is not really qualified to use
his weapon.  I'd hate to fight you when you can handle it.  I would be dead.  Thanks
for the lesson. -- Darkle

JFK -- Not bad for marginal. -- Klutz

Homeless Prince -- I hope that you don't find a home too soon.  I like it when you
are wandering around on the arena's sands.  At least you didn't trip and fall. --
Pishtush

Maximus -- Wimpy told me that were so good that I would learn a lot when you beat me.
Even if I had held on to my weapon, I didn't have a chance.  I am not pleased that
you couldn't teach any better than one skill. -- Toady

Simplissitus -- Thank you for saving us the trouble of sending Zook to the Dark
Arena.  This way we get rid of him and get a chance to get four wins at your expense.
Thanks again. -- Wimpy

G Bay -- I don't stay down for long, not when there are women to chase and booze to
drink. -- JFK

I got to play with Toys, but forgot to put it back.  Thanks for the win but no thanks
for no skills. -- Clinton

Platinum -- Nice fight.  Very close.  We should do it again. -- Al Gore

Judge -- More BF please. -- Al Gore

K. Kate -- Thanks for the skills. -- Al Gore
P.S.  Ditto Klutz.

Klutz stumbling to the ground, go figure. -- Al Gore

Skeemer -- Hmm, I seem to run across you rather often.  Is this small arena syndrome,
or Something More Sinister? -- Inarinda

Gary Condit -- Phoo. -- Kangaroo Kate, at a loss for words, or maybe at a loss for
attention

Wof-A-Mit -- You didn't have to BITE me. -- Turkey Joe, missing some feathers

Macribsi -- For somebody who's nothing but ribs, you're mighty dangerous. -- Vilma

Zook -- In hot weather like this, being hosed down is no hardship. -- Turkey Joe

To All Managers -- I would like to take this time to announce that my alliance, The
Association, is no more.  Due to the dead weight managers of the alliance and their
lack of participation, DarkSpirit and I have formed a new alliance:  The Firm.  We
have taken on two members so far and are looking for a few more.  If you would like
to find out more about The Firm, you can diplo Dark Spirit, Unknowns XX in arena 15
or myself, Sungod, Sadists F2FII in arena 62.
                               --*  The Firm *--
                    Sungod -- Sadists F2FII -- 62
                    Dark Spirit -- Unknowns XX -- 15
                    Youngblood -- Wensinwasin -- 43
                    Tripwire -- Of Wolf and Man -- 1

26 July 2003
     Citizens of Alastari, a bright dawn has risen.  While you slept, a pernicious
force has entered the once-fair City of Aruak.  It fought alongside their treasured
warriors, it drank with their fans, and it slept with their women.  Now the masks are
coming off.
     Warriors, be afraid...be very afraid.  After years of Andorian managers ranting
that Aruak is the safest city in Alastari, the Frothingslosh Syndicate has selected
Aruak City as the home for its next epic 'contest'--Murder by Numbers II.  Our spies
have selected the warriors for extermination, and the executioners have had several
months to prepare.  Now a new age of darkness will descend upon Aruak, as the
Syndicate and its allies bring an entirely new level of competition to the arena!
Downchallenges!  Assassinations!  Small poodles as hors d'oeuvres!
     The Murder by Numbers II 'rules' will be announced next cycle.  However, we
invite all managers, from all corners of Alastari, to come to Aruak City and take
part...in one way or another.  Help defend the honor of a long heralded haven for the
pure, or join the forces of change in their siege of the ice-cream and cake
stronghold of the Dukes of Nerf-Dueling!
     This exercise is not for either the faint of heart or the weak willed.  Blood
will flow, brains will leak, and beer will be chugged.  Either way, we welcome you
with open arms and gleaming blades.
     This public service announcement has been brought to you by Frothingslosh Epic
Contests (tm), the number 86, and the letter 'K'.

The Frothingslosh Syndicate

           *     *     *     *The Third Annual Turf War*     *     *     *
     Yes, it's time again for alliances to go to war!  TW3 will be held in DM 47
(North Fork) at a date to be  specified later--right after Crip's Incomprehensible
Contest is over...but I'm sure everyone wants to get their teams there soon!  Here
are the rules:

1.  Each alliance must have a leader declare the arrival of his alliance.  The leader
    will be responsible for verifying any and all teams/managers who declare to the
    alliance he/she is leading.
2.  Each manager, team declaring for the contest must have approval of the leader,
    donate one Roll-up Certificate ($5) to the prize pot (send it to me by diplo, by
    snail, or a note to customer service), and declare his/her team by diplo, p-ad or
    snail.
3.  Each team may declare one warrior as champion.  All points scored by a champ are
    double!
4.  Prizes are as follows (mostly...there WILL be some things added as the prize pot
    grows with entry donations--this list is not final!)
    *  Highest scoring alliance -- Rename Arena 47 for a period of 6 months, one half
       of the total prize pot donated; roll-up certs.
    *  The Alliance with the most returns from the DA will get to re-name the DA
       monsters for a period of 6 months.
    *  The alliance with the most warriors listed as style masters will get to pick
       the Alastari city/arena to host the next Grand Tournament.
    *  The warrior with the most front page honors/awards will have the Arenamaster
       named after him for a period of 6 months.
    *  The Alliance with the most front page Honors/Awards will have the honor of
        picking the *slow* arena to host the Fifth Annual Turf War.
    *  The team with the most listings as Style Master will find out the favorites of
       one of their warriors.
    *  The warrior with the most listings as Style Master will fight at my expense
       for five turns (I will transfer to the manager's account).
    *  The Alliance with the most kills will be able to re-name the stand-in warriors
       for a period of 6 months.
    *  The warrior that scores the most total points will fight at my expense for 5
       turns (I will transfer $7.50 to the manager's account).
    *  The team that scores the most total points will receive an extra share of
       roll-up certs from the prize pot.
     There may be more categories to come, and the prize pot still has to be
divided...I'm open to category/prize ideas--and further donations to the prize pot.
     The contest will run for *TEN* turns; prizes will be awarded at the end of the
11th turn.
     Scoring will be as follows:
* 5 points per fight, doubled for each of the following conditions met:
     -- Two Alliance     -- Champion
     -- Challenge        -- Two Champions
     -- Bloodfeud        -- Challenger losing
     -- Kill
     (Note:  DA losses are exempt, but DA wins will be *tripled*!!!  Ex:  Happy
Slasher goes to the DA and dies, no points are lost.  If he wins, his team scores 60
points!  If he was a champ, he scores 120 points!)
     Use the following chart to calculate scores:
Conditions Met:       0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7
Points Per Fight:     5    10    20    40    80   160   320   640
* Awards/Honors and Style Masters will each be awarded points also.  Find the total
number of each (do note add Awards and Style Masters together) and consult the graph
below.  Champs that score an award or style master count as two.
     1 --   5      7 --  320
     2 --  10      8 --  640
     3 --  20      9 -- 1280
     4 --  40     10 -- 2560
     5 --  80     11 -- 5280
     6 -- 100     (x2 for each extra)
Note -- These categories *count as "triple"*--they will be figured for each team,
*AND* again for each alliance *as well as* for each warrior!
*  Each and every mention in the Spy Report is worth 5 points...period.
*  TVs will be scored on the same scale as Awards/Style Masters, but the total points
will be x10.  TC's will be scored as TV's, but x10 more.
Number of TV/TC's          Points Scored (TV/TC)
     1      50/ 500
     2     100/1000
     3     200/2000
     4     400/4000
     +     x2/ x2 (for each extra)
     Each alliance will start with 5000 points, scores for *fights* will be added to
the winner's total *AND* deducted from the losers.
     Come  one and all, defend your turf and the honor of your alliance...or your
own!
