                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  A stormcloud is brewing over the FUNKY FOLK VI guildhouse.  Rumor 
says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming 
up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, OSCO INTOXICATORS has advanced 4 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for TRIMOX, who flew up 17 points in the rankings 
after mashing SCARLET like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  TERRY DONAHUE was overcame by SKIN and 
drops 12 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles 
was THE MIDDLE WAY 4's BRON CHOLLU, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
FELAWESHIPE.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at 
bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that THUNDERCATS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of THUNDERCATS' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  THUNDERCATS + 
Weapons That go Boom = ERRATA + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece 
of HONOUR, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in LYRATILAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Velond Wok -- How did I become Branded & Exiled, you ask?  Well, my last fight should 
provide some insight.  Since I got critted 6 times and hit for extra damage twice by 
a stand-in, and worse, nearly killed, I find myself grateful that I'm only Branded & 
Exiled and not Dark Arena meat -- Captain Lockheed

Berylstar -- Enjoyed it all.  Thanks.  'Til next time. -- Assurnasirbanipal

Jiminy Cricket -- Oh, sorry, I forgot that I had my "anti-bug" armor on.  Kinda got 
to you, didn't it? -- Bron Chollu
P.S.  I mean, it just SHOWS.  You jumped out and got in the first blow--and it really 
hurt, too!--but then the old bugicide started to slow you down....  But on the whole, 
I'm glad you didn't die of it.  That would have been rather embarrassing.  To me.
P.P.S.  And to you, too, come to think of it.

Bengaul -- Darn, but you've got a lot of gaul!  So I divided you into three parts.  
It seemed like the thing to do. -- Velond Wok

Skin -- You're an error?  How odd. -- Calli Geier

Terry Donahue -- You're a scimitar?  I would never have guessed. -- Quia Salian

Valium Ten -- Odd, at the end of that fight, I was soooo sleepy.  And when I woke up, 
I was disoriented.  Do you know anything about that? -- Beltran Foss

Felaweshipe -- Congratulations. -- The Middle Way

22 October 2004
                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
