                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CALEAM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with 
PLEXIGLASSJAWJOE?  He actually beat CALEAM's THE HONEST MERCHANT, and walked away 
with 12 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at GOLDEN CANYON.  CLEMMIE lost 8 
points to KUNG-FU MASTER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CLEMMIE will provide 
more easy wins...  Har har har!  Did YUCKY TUCKY wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, 
he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure CALEAM is excited about ENLIGHTENED BEING, the 
new Duelmaster from PHILANTHROPISTS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
CALEAM thinks GOLDEN CANYON and their 501-689-20 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at PHILANTHROPISTS ain't 
reelin'!  GOLDEN CANYON's mad!  What do people see in GOLDERIE?  Hers 7-8-1?  GOLDEN 
CANYON ain't talkin', but she's got 37 points.  ENLIGHTENED BEING expects the easy 
win by going 22 points down.  GOLDERIE will find this a hard lesson!  ENLIGHTENED 
BEING overcame GOLDERIE.  PHILANTHROPISTS calls this fighting?  In my day...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Blood Moon -- Too messy, I think.  What happens when the moon in question gets high
in the sky, after all?  Blood everywhere, that's what.  Running down the Milky Way,

soaking into the clouds, contaminating the groundwater, and just generally making a
reeking mess of things.  Naturally, I had to do what I could for neatness and
hygiene. -- Golderie

Iron Forge -- My teammate may have been confused about what an "iron forge" is or
could be, but *I* know the secret.  It's the stuff you spray on clothes before
applying the iron, which makes them hard as steel, and twice as stiff...and hideously
uncomfortable.  I never use that stuff myself.  I figure if *I* want steel clothes,
I'll just get armor, you know?  Less chafing. -- Loris Key

Yucky Tucky -- Well, since you ASK (though not politely), NO, no one actually told
me, ever, that I could fight.  They just said I had no choice, which is QUITE a
different thing. -- Clemmie
P.S.  I'm glad the column is YOUR responsibility now.  Even if you don't do one.
Because *I* can't be blamed for its absence, now.  And that's all that counts with
me, me not being any kind of philanthropist.

She Screams -- Gods, I noticed!  Very loudly.  Just give the tyke her ice cream, why
don't you?  This is way too much for anyone to have to put up with. -- Pike
P.S.  Could even a mother love that steam whistle?

Slow Burn -- I did that once.  It was beans, and we finally had to throw the whole
pan away.  We just could NOT get it truly clean.  Even when it LOOKED clean, anything
cooked in it tasted like burned beans.  (shudder)  But good came of it, because no
one ever asked me to cook again.  This was definitely a step toward civilized living.
-- Maureen

Yucky Tucky -- We see that you are graduating and all shout with joy.  So good that
you will be going.  To the Isle. -- Golden Canyon
P.S.  Don't come back.

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

     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!
