                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in IAYE this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
THE WARLOCKS is pushed out of top team by THE A'S -- LOSERS II, who came from 2nd 
with a 3-1-0 this turn.  The THE A'S -- LOSERS II guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, GISSANNIAH fought TELA and gained 18 points and contributed to 
RED DOG GANG's 2-3-0.  PERROJO has lost to STINGER, falling 8 points, while helping 
make RED DOG GANG a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending its title for another turn, DARK STAR kept 
LENPROS' warrior, SENATOR SEDALIA, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Rat Nest uses trolls in 
their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  THE A'S -- LOSERS II has cause to stand 
tall, as they were IAYE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding THE A'S -- LOSERS II more than any other team we find LENPROS.  
IAYE, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  LENPROS made what looks to be a 
tough decision this turn, as they sent ENSIGN ROASTER, with a record of 8-4-0, to 
ENSIGN ROASTER death.  Farewell, his.  LENPROS has some questions to answer.  Like 
'why did you kill your fighter, ENSIGN ROASTER, who had a record of 8-4-0?' We'd like 
to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you 
are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Fellow Iayeans -- It has been a long, long time since a Consortium Team with a record
like ours has been mired in seventh place, only two from the bottom.  We accept the
challenge and will enjoy matching wits, skills, and words with such an obviously
talented and elite group of managers and warriors.  Salute! -- Lenpro

General Jackson a 15-14-18-15-9-6-7 mode basher opted to take on the Stone Golem, and
did not conquer in the unlit arena.  Farewell. -- Lenpro

On the other hand, Admiral Iso decimated The Dark champion.  We are proud of the
admiral. -- Lenpro

Dark Star -- You fought like the champ that you are.  I congratulate you.  Who put me
on the top of the ballot anyhow?  I am not yet ready for such responsibility. --
Senator Sedalia

Freeda -- It was a pleasure tussling with you.  I had fun.  I would like to do it
again right away, but Lenpro says I am "maxed" and must wait until after Tempe.  I
promise that when I return, I will give you a full physical. -- Dr. Rosenzweig

Grissaniah -- I just saw your post/ad to Messenger Bird about all those skills and I
felt compelled to tell you what a beautiful name you have.  Lovely. -- Senator
Sedalia

Tela -- Oh, cheese, can you say "mis-match"?  Ouch.  I hardly gave you a work-out,
did I? -- Gissanniah

Dr. Rosenzweig -- Lotsa talk, nothing to show.  I guess YOU are the one who needs a
doctor. -- Freeda

Candyman -- Even your candy won't resign me to being called Convincian.  I'm a SHOE,
dammit!  A really GOOD shoe, the kind that are so comfortable, you don't even WANT to
take 'em off. -- Bigfoots

Shiftyeyed Volunteer?  Pooh. -- Perrojo

And a double Pooh! to the Trustworthy Scribe.  What did HE ever do to earn anyone's
trust? -- Rishteke

The Company of Brothers Alliance would like to welcome Azereth as our newest member.

Due to requests, the Turf War IV will be postponed until turn 225 (approx May/June
2005).  Sorry about the inconvenience. -- Baphomet, host of TW 4

12 January 2005
On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's
Massacre Kill Contest will begin.  The rules are simple; the team with the most kills
on the last turn wins.  Last year's winner was Shocking Toad.  Can he repeat?  Could
DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
                  2nd.  Renaming of a Stand-In monster.
     Come on and celebrate the Delarquan way!
