                                 Kill Kontest Update

Three kills this turn.  Two DOOMcorps teams managed to put kLker's in the ground and
a kLker managed to kill a stand-in.  (Quit braggin, Nemesis, it ain't a big deal.)
Space Wolves picked up one for the Doomies by killing my girl T'Hael (at least I
don't have to debate DAing her anymore) and Listless of Maroon Midget got the other
on Kamikazi (this is a DOOMcorps kill if Iver is the manager as listed last turn.  If
not, sorry whoever this team belongs to.)  So here are the current standings:

Legendary Bastards:  3 kills
5440 or Fight!:      2 kills
Kamikazi:            2 kills
Maroon Midgets:      1 kill
Shout Hey Haammerz:  1 kill
Suicidal Dreams:     1 kill
Memphis Mafia:       1 kill
Anarkysts:           1 kill
Portal:              1 kill
Errata:              1 kill
The Fallen:          1 kill

Two turns to go and Legendary Bastards still has the lead with 5440 or Fight! and
Kamikazi tied for second.  On that note, in the event of a tie, the teams tied for
the place (first or second) will continue in the contest until the tie is broken.

Now get out there and kill somebody, Jhans. -- Azraelus Prime

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JHANS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, KAMIKAZI, since WARRIOR'S 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If Lucas Lounge is buying 
drinks for ANARKYSTS' good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 
1-1-0 makes for a big thirst.  Now let's all watch PORTAL's heads swell from their 
3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see BADDA BAMM win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, BADDA BAMM beat DEVASTATOR and DEVASTATOR lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  REAPER challenged JHANS' Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  The 
Duelmaster's Dead!  Long live the Duelmaster!  Ha!  REAPER has killed BENANDANTI in 
the Title bout, and this bout ain't over yet!  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, JHANS?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  HELTER SKELTER was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like THE FALLEN avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  I.B. KLONIN was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  KIZZLE CANT KILLME was challenged by one of SPACE WOLVES' 
warriors this turn, with URBAN HEBREW having a lead of 18 points going into the 
fight.  And sorry to say, URBAN HEBREW defeated KIZZLE CANT KILLME, leaving a bad 
feeling with the crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.  I 
guess I can give a little credit to THE LOVE ABOVE of MEMPHIS MAFIA II for 
challenging up by 23 to DHAMPIRA.  THE LOVE ABOVE lost to get 12 points of 
recognition.  And we have BANE in a challenge, going down 15 points for the fight.  
Guess what?  I thought BANE showed great skill and promise when he overcame MOON 
CRICKET.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, PONY SOLDIER of WARRIOR'S has added the final loss to his 5-3-0.  Tee hee!  
Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  HEY DRAGON HAMMER, a glorious 4-4-0 fighter, has passed 
away.  Gee, too bad SHOUT HEY HAMMERZ.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of JHANS.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Baphomet -- Welcome back to the arena.  After reading your personals last turn I
decided to see if Bookie truly was on top with his puppets clearing the way.  My
research turned up a few interesting facts.  Here I'll share them with you: (ALL AS
OF TURN 483.)
1.  DOOMcorps has a combined winning percentage of 51.5% (2170-2039-185)
2.  Illuminati has a combined winning percentage of 48.1% (455-490-35)
3.  DOOMcorps has a combined kill percentage of 8.5% (185/2170)
4.  Illuminati has a combined kill percentage of 7.7% (35/455)
5.  DOOMcorps has 5 of the top 10 teams ranked in career w/l record
6.  Illuminati has 1 of the top 10 teams ranked in career w/l record
7.  The Illuminati has 2 teams with a "winning" record.  (The Dreaming & Suicidal)
8.  DOOMcorps has more than that!
9.  And you mentioned something about DM's.  Since DOOMcorps' Resurrection we have
    held the Throne ten times, with the Illuminati/kLk holding it nine in that same
    period.
     After careful review of the facts I believe you were incorrect in your
assessment.  I think DOOMcorps' record speaks for itself, but who's counting?! --
Polarius

Pixie -- Ok...let me guess...is it the finger you just pulled out of your...bum? --
Prince of Lies

Sally -- Thanks, thanks a lot. -- Serpent of Old

Baphomet -- There are so many jokes that could be made about your question to Bookie
about his boxers.  Please don't ask a question like that again, it is too hard to
refrain from such good humor. -- Polarius

The Scribe -- Your intel on my squad is incorrect.  OPSEC measures required a quiet
insertion into the battlefield.  Now that OPFOR are aware of our presence, I can set
the record straight.  As my girls engage the target rich environment that is Jhans,
their names shall be spoken with worried whispers in the shadowed alleys of this fine
city. -- Sarge, mgr. Far East Treasures

     Ah, that's the problem with relying on deaf spies.  They so often get things
     wrong.  I have corrected my list.  My apologies. -- The Saint, keeper of
     occasionally correct but often not, lists

Az -- Love in Jhans?  Bro, obviously you're delirious!  You must have swallowed some
nasty river water. -- Baphomet

Shaman -- Welcome back! -- Baphomet, co-founder of The Company of Brothers alliance
(TCB) War Beast of the Illuminati Confederation of Alliances, mgr. of Chop's Pride

Vhagar -- I think you just came back too, didn't you?  Welcome back to you as well.
-- Baphomet

Kid Kizzle -- Putting bounties on folks' warriors, huh?  Ya know...if you had an
ounce of honour...you'd pay the warrior the bounty if it graduated with no one
collecting it!  But...of course...you'd never do that.... -- Baphomet, stating the
obvious

Scratch Fury -- Perhaps some anger management would help you with that angry itch. --
August

Hollie -- Sorry, didn't mean to drop you like a hot rock.  Next time, try dual quads.
-- Aemilius Paulius

Baphomet -- Sup, bro.  Once again I apologize for not writing yet, but I plan to send
you a letter this weekend.  Holla. -- Azraelus Prime

Hammer -- I regret to inform you that after this fight the warrior I named after you
will most likely see the Dark Arena and the winter dead tourney.  He just won't win,
dude. -- Az
P.S.  Keep trying to call, bro; we'll get through sooner or later.

Benandanti -- Good challenge and good win.  Congrats on the throne.  What do you say
we try it again?  Come on, I dare you. -- Devastator

Helix Prime -- Thanks for removing a bi-weekly dilemma for me and killing that loser
21 wit piker of mine.  I just couldn't bear to do it.  Now the question is, do you
have the bearings to take the bloodfeud or will you duck it? -- Azraelus Prime

DOOMcorps -- I hereby make the formal request that if you should discover the
identity of that sackless imposter who sent me a PA in Ill Kid's name two turns ago
you will pass the info along.  I am confident that your retribution should he be
discovered will be swift and merciless and I would like to lend my sword to this
cause.  Addressing that to me at a time when I am trying to renew game ties with your
alliance and occurrences due to this farce have set my goals back.  I agree that the
PA in question was far below the standards I have come to expect from Ill Kid K.  Had
I not been blinded by my usual take of Ill Kid I would have noticed the elementary
sub-standard grammar that the ad was sent in.  So imposter, I hope you are discovered
soon.  Die Screaming. -- Azraelus Prime

P-Diddi and Nemesis -- I do believe we are the only peeps in the arena with a single
team to our disposal now.  Or it sure seems that way doesn't it? -- Az

     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
