                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LAPUR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, SHREW CAN IT BE NOW, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see RIP TIDE win a fight and gain 
17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VENOMOUS CONCUBINE beat ACCO and ACCO lost 13 points. 
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LAPUR may be getting 
bland, as BINDI stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but 
why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, LAPUR?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  EQUESTORS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BLACK SAMURAI.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, THE PLAGUE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to SNAKE PIT of 
DEATH THREAT for challenging up by 24 to SCORPUS.  SNAKE PIT lost to get 64 points of 
recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  A big yahoo goes out to MACRINUS this 
turn, for revenging EQUESTORS' bloodfeud against DEATH THREAT's warrior THE PLAGUE.  
Heh, heh, heh.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches 
up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in LAPUR to get a drink than The Burning Tree!  
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this 
winter-- Snide Clemens

Gladiatorial Commission (Lapur) -- I've graduated 7 warriors from this arena.  Of 
those 7, 4 are strikers.  Of those 4, THREE prefer the Small Shield! Are you 
trying to tell me something here?! -- Thawk

     Yep.  We've got a lot of those small shields around.  Gotta use 'em up.

Flint Eye -- Does that mean you don't like me anymore? Like we can't dance 
together anymore? I'm hurt that you don't like me... I'm always so sweet to you -
- Cookie <pouting>

Stonetooth -- You got some lucky shots on me before I could anything about it, 
pal.  But then I'm such a big boy, getting out of the way is hard for me. I got a 
feeling that we'll be meeting on the sands again, so I'll try to make it up to 
you next time. -- Onosuke

Equestors -- Striving to keep thine head above water, aye? Getting a new team 
member to stay alive long enough to advance him against the likes of 'murderous 
fanatic' teams is a challenge.  Been there, done that!  Exercise the right of 
Blood Feud at every opportunity.  Take the advantage and don't let up on them! -- 
Black Samurai

Southeastern Shrew -- You're a persistent little thing, aren't you?  Determined 
to gnaw me down. -- Tall Tree

Short-tailed Sherw -- My momma done tole me, don't mix with no shrews.  No way!
-- Flint Eye

Macrinus -- Cheese, everybody wants tigerskin rugs these days!  Why not go for 
crocodile shoes, instead? -- Black Tiger

Onosuke -- Why do I get the feeling that things won't always be that easy? --
Stonetooth

Prince Rupert -- Let me get this streat:  You're winning, and if I want to turn 
the fight around, I should FALL DOWN?  Why does this not convince me? -- Black 
Tiger

Bindi -- Congratulations, finally. -- the Cardow Hunters

6 May 2004
                                     DEATH FEST

     The ferocious ghosts of former glories whispered across the wind swept sands 
of
DM 59; agonizing incessantly due to the diminutive demise of the Delarq arena 
known
as Illis.
     Tattered banners and forgotten memories wailed in the wind for a dynamic 
death
march to dawn once more upon the blood stained sands of the Delarq slow arena.
     The distant call crying for  a declaration of restoration amidst the ruin of 
the
all but forgotten Delarq arena carried to the far corners of Alastari; drawing 
the
Devious, the Diabolical, the Dangerous and the Down Challenging to cross blades 
and
wage warfare among an assemblage of new stables managed by the Known and Unknown;
willing to spill fresh blood, while carving their destiny during 15 Rounds of 
contest
driven combat to be known as the "Illis Incredibly Diabolical Delarq Death Fest".
     A lone cloaked figure huddled by lamplight in a remote outpost near the
crossroads of ElseWhere and ElseWhen; feverishly formulating the foundational
framework for the dawning of the Delarq Death Fest in DM 59, complete with
Gladiatorial Commission sanctioned prizes to promote the growing thirst for a 
Delarq
Slow Arena Death Festival.

     Delarq Death Fest Opening Round debuts the first turn immediately following 
the
Summer 2004 F2F Tourney and continues through the completion of 15 consecutive
rounds.
     Death Fest points are Won or Lost ONLY in the DM 59 Delarq Slow Arena 
[Tourneys
DO NOT Add or Subtract from the Death Fest Point Scoring System]:

Death Fest Scoring Format:
Win =3D +2 pts
Loss =3D -1 pt
Kill =3D +5 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Death =3D -3 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]
Dark Arena Kill =3D +10 pts [in addition to +2 pts for Win]
Dark Arena Death =3D -5 pts [in addition to 1 pt for Loss]

    DEATH FEST PRIZES will be awarded to the Top Ten Death Fest Stables on the 
basis
of Total Points*** accumulated during the 15 rounds of competition as follows:

1.  Favorite Weapon Knowledge for 1 (one) warrior ranked Initiate or higher on 
the
Final Round to be revealed by RSI to each of the Top Ten Death Fest Stables
2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters and NPCs [yet to be determined according to 
how
many DA Monsters and NPCs are available in DM 59 for Renaming]
3.  The Top Five Death Fest Stables will receive New Team Rollup Certificates as
follows:  1st (10), 2nd (8), 3rd (6), 4th (4) and 5th (2)
4.  Renaming Illis Arena for 6 months plus Receiving 6 months Free Play courtesy 
of
RSI will be awarded to the manager of the 1st Place Death Fest Stable
5.  Discussions are underway regarding a possible Special Award granted to the 
Illis
Iron Stable qualifiers who compete in 67 of a possible 75 fights during the 
course of
the 15 consecutive rounds of the Death Fest [Key Factor is How Many (?) stables 
will
be competing in the Death Fest without drawing away participation by current 
managers
in the remaining slow arenas!]  Therefore, it is important for all managers 
entering
stables in DM 59 for the upcoming Death Fest to contact RSI as soon as possible
regarding their participation in this contest so that a Final Ruling on the 
proposed
Illis Iron Stable Award can be issued by RSI.

***TieBreaker is determined on the Final Round by the DM 59 Newsletter 
Recognition
Rankings.  The stable with the Highest Ranked Active Gladiator is granted the
decision.  [Example: Warrior A and Warrior B are both listed in the Recognition
Rankings with 87 pts; however, because Warrior A is listed in the Recognition
Rankings ahead of Warrior B, then Warrior A is granted the TieBreaker Decision 
for
His/Her stable!]

     Opening Round Team Spotlight Bonus [minimum 15 paragraphs!]  Each Delarq 
Death
Fest competitor who writes a Team Spotlight featuring their Stable (Name) and
Managerial Alias [Gladiatorial Names Optional] in regards to competing in the 
Delarq
Death Fest will receive 25 pts added to His/Her opening round score.
     Illis Iron Stable Bonus [in addition to the proposed award awaiting RSI
approval!]  Any manager whose stable competes in at least 67 of the possible 75
fights during the 15 rounds of Death Fest receives 25 points added to His/Her 
final
overall score [this allows each stable the cushion of missing one round of
competition; plus up to 3 additional fights due to waiting for replacement 
rollups
from Deaths suffered either in Tourneys or during the Death Fest contest in DM 59
over the course of 15 rounds of competition!]
