                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LAPUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TETRICUS win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
STONETOOTH beat LUCY and LUCY lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, LAPUR may be getting bland, as MUCIANUS 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?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
EQUESTORS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like CROC FILES avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  
BLACK TIGER was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to CASSIE of CROC 
FILES for challenging up by 22 to LEXINGTON.  CASSIE lost to get 38 points of 
recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the LAPUR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of LAPUR.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Hey Scribe, any chance I can get in on some of the action?!  Can't have Agro hogging
all the spotlight (not to mention my girl)!! -- Graham (jealous)

Black Tiger -- Hmmm...shall we try that again? -- Charlie

Stonetooth -- Best three out of five?? -- Cassie

Charlie -- (toothy grin)  Alligator boots for me! -- Black Tiger
P.S.  Croc, gator, who cares?  Only a reptile even notices the difference.

Cassie -- Dammit, I just about broke a tooth on you! -- Stonetooth

Lucy -- I keep forgetting the part about "carry a big stick."  It's going to get me
killed one of these days.... -- Walks Softly but forgot his stick

Victorinus -- (frowning)  Hmm, I see I still have a thing or two to learn. -- Quick
Stinger

Crispus -- Life is tough and then you die.  I hope the afterlife to which you have
gone is one where people get to sit around in private shady nooks beside rivers and
not fish. -- Black Tiger, speaking for all the Cardow Hunters

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.
