                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KATI-TEI this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, CHICKEN TIGHT JEANS fought 
KHALHUMS DWARF and gained 20 points and contributed to GLAD TO MEAT YOU's 3-2-1.  
HOLY SCHLITZ has lost to JEHU, falling 7 points, while helping make OLD SCHOOL a 
1-1-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and PORTERHOUSE 
ARREST remains KATI-TEI's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping 
Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the BLADE BROTHERS 18 stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on KATI-TEI, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided BLADE BROTHERS 18 stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was GLAD TO MEAT 
YOU.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was WANDERERS' warrior 
SATURN.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  WANDERERS has lost BETHANNE GRACE to the arena in the sky, but they don't 
seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 18-13-1?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in KATI-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

My family and I are moving from Colorado to Northern Virginia.  I may miss a couple
of turns but I'll be back.  Also, as I'll be on the East Coast rather than the West
Coast I will attend the Summer FTF in 2005, I will NOT attend the Winter FTF in
Phoenix.  I hope to see some of you next year and meet those I've not seen in
Phoenix. -- Shocking Toad
P.S.  I vote for a Washington D.C. Summer FTF in 2005.

Great Barrier Beef -- I've been meaning to ask you, are you kin to Fredrick
Barbarosacue?  I sense a certain similarity, as you might say. -- Saturn

Porterhouse Arrest -- Definitely what will happen to you if you try to stiff me for
the taxi fare next time!  Bad enough when people don't tip. -- Jehu

Holy Schlitz -- I did NOT fight with deadly bloodlust!  It was non-deadly bloodlust,
a sort of friendly bloodlust.  Almost sweet. -- Bethanne Grace

Barnicle Bill -- Are you called that because you storm barns and drape them in
icicles?  Not a nice thing to do, you could break the roof, you know.  Or somebody
who happened to be standing underneath when one fell off could be hurt. -- Parnian

Polite Beggar?  I've HAD it with "polite"!  I wouldn't be nice to somebody who
"polited" me if you PAID me to. -- Flutterlee

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.
