                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZORPUNT!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, KRILL CAVALRY had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by WATER DECK!  Way to go WATER DECK!  
MVP award for WARTORTLE?  WATER DECK's proud of him after beating LITTLE GIRL CRUSH 
and getting 19 points.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  CROCONAW stopped 
VETERAN MERCENARY dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said ZORPUNT's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  BATTLEMANIA was ZORPUNT's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  I don't know what WATER DECK's been doing.  They certainly haven't been 
accepting many fights from BATTLEMANIA, that's fer sher.  Like, is ORESTES popular, 
or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ZORPUNT!  He's got a 13-10-1, is that 
good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out TAIPAN challenged LIMPETTE. 
After all, haven't AUSSIE KILLERS and KRILL CAVALRY had a long standing duel in 
ZORPUNT?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but LIMPETTE wants me to write 
about it since she was defeated by TAIPAN.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bummer deal for LITTLE GIRL CRUSH!  
She just barely was getting hers "fighter feet" but got kill by WARTORTLE of WATER 
DECK!  Those're the breaks, I guess.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families 
would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

                                 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!
