                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for LYRATILAN.  MVP award for COLONOSCOPY?  
NOT FOR ME's proud of him after beating AIKIDO and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  DAVIA HANNAS got smashed by RAVING LUNATIC, and lost 15 points!  
Like, NITROGLYCERIN must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from 
BARHOPPERS.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  PAINLESS stopped NITROGLYCERIN dead in his tracks!  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?  Like, is WHITE SPIDER popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of LYRATILAN!  He's got a 10-13-1, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (GIGLIE vs. WHITE SPIDER, that 
is.) Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write! 
(Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Painless -- Well, you can't say I don't take my duties as a teacher seriously! --
Beltran Foss
P.S.  I'm just surprised you still find things to learn from me.  Attack and
defense....  (sigh)  I should've been USING those instead of teaching YOU to.  You
don't really NEED them, do you?  (pause to study the win/loss record)  Okay, maybe
you do value and will use the lessons.  Maybe, wonderful thought, you will graduate!
(another pause, this time to check the back page)  And you ARE graduating!
Congratulations.  Go, man, go go go!

Raving Lunatic -- MAD DOG!  Oh, no, quick, bring the nets!  We can't have a mad dog
loose in the town, think how many of the REST of us are susceptible, if push comes to
shove, or, as the case may be, to bite. -- Davia Hannas

White Spider -- EUWH!  You "sat down beside her," meaning ME, and I did NOT like it.
-- Ehrlie Fay
P.S.  I don't think I was over-reacting, not really.  It was just being grossed out.
Okay, VERY grossed out, but there IS no such thing as "over-reacting" when you're out
on the sands with an opponent who is armed.  Stands to reason.

Visiting Orc?  Who told the damned orc he could come visit?  There is NO WAY I'm
going to share my beer with the orc, just because he's a visitor.  That only works
when you INVITE them. -- Xeno Yohl

Colonoscopy?  Ha!  You disemboweled me!  I could've lived all year without that
happening.  It did NOT make this a good day. -- Ghost of Rolph Tupp
P.S.  And as to your "advice for the future," I have some advice for YOU!  (several
suggestions deleted for reasons of decency and anatomical improbability)

Ed. -- Right, calamri.  Yuck. -- Ghost of Rolph Tupp
P.S.  Lots of stuff can claim to be "quite tasty if properly prepared," which doesn't
make it something I can readily visualize eating.  Not that, in my current state,
eating isn't darned near impossible anyway.

     Think of them like onion rings but with more protein.  Maybe a high protein diet
     would help you in your "current state". -- Ed.

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.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!
