                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZENSU.  Like, THE DISC had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by TACO GODS!  Way to go TACO GODS!  
NEUROMANCERS like really fought hard to move up to 5th from 8th.  Way to go!  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  VENITARI's match with WAVES cost him a loss of 11 points!  
The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  TERIS knows this.  
She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Was that a tear I saw in TERIS' eye, as she 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't LEADFOOT fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy 
that said ZENSU's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look 
at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of BATTLE SCHOOL must be getting lonely. 
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't 
know what TACO GODS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from BATTLE SCHOOL, that's fer sher.  Like, is ARNIE EL SHEW popular, or what?  He 
was challenged the most in all of ZENSU!  He's got a 7-31-1, is that good?  For sure, 
I was holding my breath when I found out WHITE NOISE challenged BLONDE GRENADE.  
After all, haven't NEUROMANCERS and BEYOND THE PALE had a long standing duel in 
ZENSU?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BLONDE GRENADE wants me to 
write about it since she was overcame by WHITE NOISE.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

                                 TEN TURNS OF HELL:
                        The KLK Capture The Flag Competition

In the spirit of the ongoing effort to make arena play what it used to be (FUN!!), I
am proud to announce the KLK Capture The Flag Competition.  The competition will be
held in Jhans (DM-36, which has, by the way, grown in size equal to Talcama already).
:)  We are announcing this contest early to allow managers time to prep.

Rules:
     -- On turn 462 (due 8/4/04) the lowest ranked warrior on your team is given your
team's 'flag' (he is your initial flag defender).
     -- Starting on turn 463 (due 8/18/04) flags will be defended every turn and turn
463 is the turn scoring will begin.
     -- Fights involving flags are winners-take-all and a warrior can carry as many
flags as he can win.
     -- If a warrior holding a flag either A) goes inactive, B) loses to a stand-by
warrior or C) gets DA'd, he forfeits all flags he has and they are returned the their
original team's lowest ranked warrior.
     -- If you hold your own flag on an inactive warrior you receive NO POINTS that
turn.
     -- If a warrior graduates to AD holding flags starting on the next turn those
flags will be defended by the lowest ranked warrior on the team of the graduating
warrior.
     -- Scoring as follows for each turn:
          2 pts -- possession of your own team flag
          1 pt -- possession any other flag
          1 pt -- for each win
          1 pt -- for each kill
          1 pt -- for each award you receive in the newsletter
     -- You may enter as many teams as you like (per RSI rules) but each team is its
own entry.
     -- Tie-Breaker goes to the team that had the most points from flags.
     -- If still tied the tie-breaker will be the team that had the most points from
kills.  (It's the Delarq way.)
     -- The contest lasts 10 turns and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd
(based on highest point totals)

Prizes: (what you've been waiting on)
1st -- 3 know favorites potions*
       DA warrior named after winning manager
2nd -- 2 know favorites potions*
3rd -- 1 know favorites potion*

* These are full favorite potions (weapon, rhythms and tactics) and can only be used
on warriors with at least 4 FE.

     How's that for paying out? (grin)  Even if you think that it's all about the TC,
these prizes should be enough to draw you in.  (You know who you are.)
     I hope to see friend and foe alike come to Jhans.  Legion, Froths, and all the
others...this is your personal invite.  Can you win?  Can you survive 10 turns of
Hell in Jhans?
     Note:  Special thanks to RSI for helping make this contest possible.  Thanks
guys!
