                                      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 NORTHERN BADLANDS 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 3-0-0 outing, FLOWERED HAMMERZ has advanced 5 places in the rankings. 
Hey everybody, watch out for UDRI, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after 
mashing WEASEL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Try as hard as the NORTHERN 
BADLANDS stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) 
WASTELAND WARLORD before this week's fights.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect 
the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid SANGUIS MORI, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does MORYA really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  SANGUIS MORI + Weapons That go 
Boom = THE ANIMALS + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
WEASEL would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In 
a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, SRAN3E went after MORTUUS, who was higher 
by 22 points.  Well, when the dust settled, SRAN3E defeated MORTUUS.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This week 4-12-0 SABLE was sent to the Dark Arena.  I know 
a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of this.  The audience 
likes blood and there was plenty of it covering WEASEL as he was driven to an early 
grave by UDRI of the PHANTACITY.  Solution for urban overcrowding:  UDRI killed 
WEASEL.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, WEASEL was mashed by UDRI, who 
let WEASEL know that killing members of PHANTACITY is a no-no.  Congrats to CAEDERE 
for revenging the death of hers teammate (but more importantly, feeding AARD WOLF a 
bit of dirt).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very 
important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in MORYA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Well, I am embarrassed.  Vaidisava went on the sands with a weapon.  She was not
supposed to.  All my apologies to Ol Griz and Maximillian. -- Le Pentarque

Lorvandis -- How can you say you're fighting badly?  Look at my record! -- Fati

Lorvandis -- In that case, criticize away! -- Caedere

Blackstorm -- On wings of the raven I bring you a message:  Azaziel sends his regards
and wanted to assure you that he considers you an ally and that he hasn't "targeted"
your team out of malice!  Also, if you're going to court his stable, you should see
them first-hand!  Alas, I am but a messenger of the "Dark Angel" Azaziel! -- Dis

All -- What teams does the AOL consist of in 31? -- Dis

Maximillian -- Thanks for the welcome.  If fate should place our warriors face to
face, I'll remember the warm welcome and go easy. -- Toril Malik, Legion of Doom
manager

X-Head Cannon -- A strange name for a strange warrior, but then, the Rirorni have
always been odd.  I would advise you to wash that X off your head; it could lead to
Early-Demise Syndrome.  Not the sort of thing any rational gladiator wants to get
involved with. -- Haruspek

Le Plon -- Horse-whiskers!  You got me coming and going.  I hate it when that
happens. -- Mankiller

Cathie -- Madam, you inspire me.  But I will, if you don't mind, carry out my
inspirations from a distance.  You seem likely to be an uncomfortable companion.
Hmm.  But now that I think about it...you could be lots of fun, too!  Exciting times,
and all that.  It's definitely a thought, if you're thinking something similar? --
Stormdancer

Prevari -- They told me to be careful around you, that you might be inclined to lie.
But that's nonsense.  You can't lie with a blade, not really.  (sigh)  I fear your
manager will not be amused.  Good luck, you may need it. -- Lorvandis

Mau -- Good thing there was only one of you!  Faced with two, I might easily have
died! -- Cloudrider
P.S.  Glad you didn't.

Le Plon -- (blank look)  Oh.  I suppose I need to dig out a foreign-language
dictionary?  Still, thanks for answering.  I did wonder. -- Mankiller

Cathie -- I think perhaps not on your suggestion. -- Stormdancer
P.S.  Still... it WOULD be an adventure, wouldn't it?  They say it's haunted.

Ugly Kid Joe -- This is true.  Perhaps you can turn it into a weapon. -- Haruspek

NEED A TURF WAR ALLIANCE??  Master Beru, Wretch, Reaper, and Xoan have come together
to form an Alliance for the TURF WAR in DM47 with no regards for experience in
competitions or even the game.  If you want to enjoy the thrills of the competition,
we have space for up to three more managers.  Contact Master Beru at
d_spinella@msn.com for more information or send a note to Master Beru at DM 29--Army
of Darkness.  If you are interested, we need to move quickly, since the contest
starts in January and there are a few requirements to meet to participate.  May your
blades find the chinks in your enemy's armor. -- Master Beru

ANNOUNCING THE NO-TOURNAMENT ARENA (81)

As an American I honor my cultural heritage by stealing any good idea.  This idea was
originally proposed by Lord Xiang in November 2005.  RSI will be opening the arena
(81) for teams willing to sign the following pledge:

*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this arena to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this arena.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena
1.  No tournament play for warriors in this arena (Dead tournament or otherwise).
2.  One team per manager.
3.  Teams start with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena.
5.  Twenty teams required, per RSI.
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead).
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

The main purpose of the Player Committee is to maintain fair play in the arena:
*  Warriors that participate in Tournaments will be sent to the Dark Arena until they
   are dead.  This means that the Player Committee has the power to send another
   player's warrior to the Dark Arena
*  Managers that abuse the rules of the Arena may be banned/transferred from the
   Arena.

The player with the most votes for Chairman will fill slot 1 [Chairperson] and that
term expires end of March 2007.
The player with the most votes overall will fill slot 5 and that term expires end of
November 2007.
The player with the second most votes overall will fill slot 4 and that term expires
end of September 2007.
The player with the third most votes overall will fill slot 3 and that term expires
end of November 2007.
The player with the fourth most votes overall will fill slot 2 and that term expires
end of May 2007.

During the month that the chairperson's term expires the Player Committee will select
one of the remaining 4 players to be the next chairperson.  During the month that any
member's term expires the arena will vote for a different player to join the Players'
Committee.

If you want to be a candidate for the player committee:
1.  Post a message in the Duel2 Forum at
    http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Forums
2.  E-Mail Deke at DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
3.  Send a Diplomatic Note to Doc LeGrand's Lab [ARENA 81]

There are 4 steps to joining this arena
1) Send in a new team rollup to RSI with the following pledge taped/stapled to the
rollup sheet, or transfer a ZERO FIGHT EQUIVALENT TEAM to Arena 81 and send RSI the
following form.

No-Tournament Arena (81)
*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

     RSI will be processing overviews for this arena as soon as you send them into
RSI.
     The first turn will run in January 2007.  This will be a normal speed arena.
     While I am encouraging everyone to use TEAM MAINTENANCE it is not mandatory.
The intent is that players that run turns will run a full team.  One warrior teams
are discouraged and will a topic for the Player Committee to resolve.
     I also encourage players to join the Duel2 Yahoo Group for faster updates and
feedback.  http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/duel/

     Deke Young will not be part of the inaugural Player Committee, maybe later once
the Arena direction has been developed.
     Any questions can be directed to DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
     I will track Awards in Arena 81, which will be posted on a web site and included
in the following turn's newsletter.

The Honor of Sunset Award:
     The first team to reach 10 Team Kills.  In the case that there is more than one
team that achieves 10 Team Kills on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most kills.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Kills, I will prolong
the contest until one team has the most Kills in the Arena (it does not have to be
one of the teams that first reached 10 Team Kills.)

The Race to Victory Award:
     The first team to reach 75 Team Wins.  In the case that there is more than one
team that reaches 75 Team wins on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most wins.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Wins, I will prolong the
contest until one team has the most wins in the Arena (it does not have to be one of
the teams that first reached 75 Team Wins.)

The Commitment to Change Award:
     The first team to reach 125 Team Fights.  In the case that there is more than
one team that reaches 125 Team Fights on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
team with the most fights.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Fights, I will
prolong the contest until one team has the most fights in the Arena (it does not have
to be one of the teams that first reached 125 Team Fights.)  I hope I never give out
this award {figure it out on your own.}

The Team Advancement Award:
     The first team to graduate 5 warriors to ADM.  In the case that there is more
than 1 team that graduates 5 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
first team to graduate 6 warriors.  In the case that there is more than 1 team that
graduates 6 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the first team to
graduate 7 warriors, and so on.

The Iron Throne Award:
     The first team to hold the Duelmaster for 10 turns STARTING ON TURN 11.

The Stylemaster Award.
     The first team to hold the Stylemaster Award in 7 different styles, STARTING ON
TURN 11.  If two teams obtain Stylemaster Awards in 7 styles on the same turn, the
goal will be increased to 8 Styles.

Team Recognition Points:  The total recognition points for all warriors in the arena
The Iron Throne Ledger:  We will track who has been the Duelmaster every turn in
     Arena history.
Iron Throne Counter:  The total number of times a team has been the Duelmaster.
Composite Team Stylemaster awards:  The number of times a team has had any of the 10
     Stylemasters.  Having 2 Stylemasters = 2 points that turn.
Challenge win percentage:  How often your warriors win when they challenge.
Challenge Defender rate:  How often your warriors win when they WERE challenged.
Team Invitations:  Number of warriors graduated to ADM.
Team Graduation Rate:  Total team fights/Graduated Warriors.
Team Kill Percentage:  Total of team Kills/Team Fights
Team Death Percentage:  Total of Team Deaths/Team Fights
Team Revenge Rate: Number of Deaths/BloodFeuds Revenged (Note that the Dark Arena
     will be counted as not-revenged.)  You only get credit for one successful
     BloodFeud per death (though I encourage you to BloodFeud all 4 turns.)
Current Win Streaks:  Warriors that have gone the most turns without losing or
     missing a turn.
Team Yahtzee counter:  Number of times a team has gone 5-0 in a turn.
Team Bagel counter:  Number of times a team has fought without a win.
Team Dark Arena counter:  Number of times each team has used the Dark Arena.
The Most Feared (avoided) Team counter:  Number of turns that team was the most
     avoided team.

     We will create a web page just for Arena 81 category leaders.
     Hope to see you there. -- Deke
