                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in LYRATILAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, CALLI GEIER fought POLITE 
BEGGAR and gained 16 points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY 4's 4-1-0.  WE LIKE THE 
MOON has lost to PARDIS RAEN, falling 4 points, while helping make SPONGMONKEYS a 
0-1-0 turn.  We should ask WRATH OF DOOM about the thrill of victory, and what being 
the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, it's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm 
a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Mourngrym Inn and Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the 
REDSANDSBLACKDEATH stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on LYRATILAN, 
what are you afraid of?  And guess who avoided REDSANDSBLACKDEATH stable the most?  
Believe it or not, it was THIS LITTLE PRIGGY.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, LYRATILAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in LYRATILAN, but never good to 
wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in 
LYRATILAN again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Stayed Home -- I wish!  That really hurts. -- Bron Chollu

P.S.  I didn't even have a chance to lay a curse on you.  Rats.

We Like the Moon -- Yeah, but does the moon like you? -- Velond Wok

Jungle Jim -- Ook.  Can't handle the work on the high bars.  Those spins!  The long
swings!  Amazing. -- Pardis Raen

Monkey Suit -- Okay, I'm sorry I laughed.  At least, I'm sorry I laughed in your
face.  But that name! -- Calli Geier

Jorja -- It is always a shame to lose a promising warrior.  I apologize on Wrath's
behave for the death of Yenta Zel...while he was hoping for a win, his actions went
much further than I had planned.  He (it actually) awaits your bloodfeud, but due to
budget restrictions here in Lyratilan, Wrath will only be dueling for one turn.  Good
luck. -- Cosmo Frothingslosh, Mgr. Redsandsblackdeath

                                 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!
