                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 0-0-0 outing, WIDE ORBS has advanced 3 places 
in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for MARV 'N HARV, who flew up 17 points in 
the rankings after mashing ODDBALL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  STROKE was overcame by 
NOMAD and drops 11 points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts 
wash yer clothes.  SANGUINE did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  It's a 
proud day for the LETHAL LEGION stable, as their warrior, SLICE, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Well, the dead gal PLAGUE just 
took LETHAL LEGION off hers Christmas card list.  The poor gal's bloodfeud just 
expired with zippo results.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your 
ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Lester Case -- I hate it when a match turns out like that.  On the one hand, having
the experiential edge, I should have WON, but on the other hand, at least I get to
claim that I was at a stylistic disadvantage.  Dunno if Leeta will buy that, but it's
what I'm offering. -- Selvun

Kung-Fu Master.  (sigh) -- Dellis Linz
P.S.  If he hadn't tripped over his beard....

Stubby -- I've got to ask myself, if YOU are a mere stub, what's the whole thing look
like? -- Darron Linz

Suffocation -- On whom do you practice this? -- Tilarin
P.S.  Oh...shoot.  I just checked the Dead List, and you're on it.  That was
inadvertent.  If your manager wants to bloodfeud, I'll be here.

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!

         without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including
         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
Bloodfeuds:
     a.  Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns.  However, the same warrior may not
         be used all four turns.  4 turns means 4 separate warriors.  A penalty of
         -10 will be given to the team who violates this.
Special Conditions:

     b.  If I make a mistake, I'll multiply the points by 2.

         x10.
     d.  Each alliance begins with zero (0) points.
     e.  Dark Arena may be used on the first turn of every warrior with no penalty
         (this means a warrior with 0 FE).
     f.  TVs won after the contest begins gain a 25 point one time score once the
         tourney reports are posted in the NL.
     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the
         same conditions as noted for TVs.
     h.  NO switching alliance once verified by an alliance that a team has declared
         for.

PRIZES:
     Turf Wars are a "Winner Takes All" type contest.  All prizes and 100% of the RU
Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:
     a.  renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena;
     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!
