                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SOLVEN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Laughs were big at SOLVEN 
while they watched KHALHUMS DWARF clobber OH WELL.  He lost 8 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure SOLVEN is excited about DONNETTA, the 
new Duelmaster from KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE REPUBLICANS!  In 
my day, no team with a 476-464-27 would scare me off!  What's the problem, KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, FROZEN 
FANNY!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  GRANDPA RAT expects 
the easy win by going 28 points down.  JOHN ROBERTS will find this a hard lesson!  I 
have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, GRANDPA RAT!  He can't set himself up 
in a real match.  I was sorry to see JOHN ROBERTS lose.  JAMMER of DROP THE LEASH 
knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged FROZEN FANNY of JUST CHILLIN who is up by 18.  
Now was this a wise move?  JAMMER perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
defeated FROZEN FANNY and ended up with 79 recognition points.  I hate going to the 
effort of writing about the kind of fights that TASHELL gets in.  She fights people 
like BILBRAY, 13 points below.  I thought TASHELL showed great skill and promise when 
she overcame BILBRAY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of SOLVEN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Naruto -- (long-suffering sigh)  I hate it when young punks come up from below and
make me look ridiculous. -- Benito Chatte
P.S.  As in, knocked me down and hit me all over before I could even THINK of getting
up.
P.P.S.  I think slowly.

Benito Chatte -- (smiling)  So you meet one of my warriors in combat again.  Better
luck next time.  By the way, where are the rest of your teammates?  Also, how would I
go about gaining more attack skills? -- Country, mgr. of Team Country

All -- What's going on with us getting a contest started here? -- Naruto

Civil War/The Crusades

The next edition of the Civil War series is to be held in Tobir, arena 14, beginning
November 25th with a round where all participating managers must DA all 5 of their
warriors; in addition all warriors must be prefixed with an A an F or a D in the
following manner:  A-Broke Stroker or (A) Broke Stroker.  Names simply beginning with
the letter of your federation will NOT count as properly prefixed!  Existing teams
are welcome but no warrior who survives the DA who had prior Fight Experience (arena
or tourney) will be allowed to score or challenge into the contest teams.  There will
be an equal number of teams set up for each of the three factions (Andorian, Free
Blades, and Delarquan) to create sides as equal as possible.  This along with the DA
round should set up pretty equal footing for all managers.  After the DA there will
be another round where you can either DA again or fight your new, or surviving,
warriors so they will be set up to challenge an opponent beginning on round 1.  So as
a recap DA round, turn 0, then turn 1 it begins with the following rules:

The Civil War to be held in arena 14.
- The contest runs for 10-28 turns (barring ties).
- No tourney participation allowed.  Teams with warriors participating in any
  tournament are disqualified.
- An even number of teams per faction worked out by the Faction Leaders.  No later
  substitutions are allowed.
- If a manager brings in a second team and challenges into the contest he is DQ'd and
  his side will fight one team short!
- Three factions will be participating:  Andorian, Delarquan, Free Blades
- Everyone prefixes their warrior with A-, F-, or D- (No prefix = disqualification of
  the warrior)
- Turn DA:  (The DA Round) November 25, 2006.  Every warrior must DA.  (Warriors not
  DA'd on Turn 0 are disqualified)
- Turn 0:  December 9th, 2006.  There will be no scoring this turn it is meant to
  allow for challenges on turn 1.
- Turn 1+:  Scoring as detailed below
- Each team gets 1 point for defeating a warrior from an opposing team.
- Fights against warriors on your team do not generate points in any situation.
- The team with the most points each turn gets a Battle Point (if there is a tie for
  the most points then no Battle Points are accrued)
- The first team to 10 Battle Points wins the war
- Managers of teams on the winning side each receive a +1 bonus potion to be used on
  a warrior on their contest team.  This must be applied within a month of the
  conclusion of the contest and the team must have been active on the last turn of
  the contest.

Anyone wishing to participate, and feels they can probably stick around for the
duration (don't want to handicap a side, of course unforeseeable events cannot be
planned for), should either diplo me at THE DEATH SQUAD(63) in Tobir (arena 14) or
place a personal ad in the arena.  You may also contact me via the Duel2.com boards!
Let me know which faction you would like to fight for!  This contest is intended to
be open to ALL managers wishing to pit themselves against each other to try and
determine which faction has the best managers! -- Street Legal

14 September 2006
     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.
