                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of KATI-TEI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SERGEANT 9?  He 
actually beat TOWER OF SNAKES' VENOM DECAY, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at MEDAL OF HONOR H3 while they watched SERGEANT 9 
clobber VENOM DECAY.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  See how the Duelmaster challenged LAZY SUNDAY's THE HAMILTONS?  That sort of 
initiative is how he got where he is now.  THE HAMILTONS was reminded on the sands 
why YELLOW BRICK TOAD is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, MEDAL OF HONOR H3!  In my day, no team with a 156-82-8 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, HELPLESS ANIMALS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, THE HAMILTONS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Two-three again, and the new, um, guy, Steel Kudzu gets Favorite?  Does this mean he
loses with class, or is it just some kind of fluke?  My vote is for "fluke."
Besides, how could Convincians--most of our fans are surely Convincian?--have a

positive attitude toward kudzu?  Convincians are farmers, and kudzu is Not Their
Friend. -- Wings in Sunlight
P.S.  And THIS is what Dusty left us with.  Fink is too mild a term.

20 August 14

Several years ago I ran a contest known as the "Slaughter Challenge" which was the
idea of a member of my alliance at the time.  We unfortunately lost him during a
robbery attempt at the store he worked at.  This November will mark the 10th
anniversary of his passing so I have decided to run the Slaughter Challenge again in
remembrance of him.

Rich Hammes was a member of my alliance, the Vendetta Cartel, and had sponsored me
into the alliance.  Rich was a common poster to both the Yahoo Duelmasters group as
well as the Duel2 boards and our Alliance's Yahoo group.  He went by the handle
GameOgre on the Duel2 boards and was known by the name Abarsis, the Slaughter Priest.
He was a very kind and thoughtful man who always had time to talk with not only his
alliance-mates but anyone else who wanted to discuss Duelmasters.  He also had time
to talk with anyone about personal life issues if he felt he could help.  He was a
daily, and prolific, poster to these sites and seemed to enjoy the interaction with
others regarding this game that he loved so much.

I would also like everyone to know that he spent several years in the US Navy serving
on a Nuclear attack Submarine in protection of our nation.  He was well loved, and
well known, by the community in which he lived even spending time at a local Ice
Cream Shop around closing time to assure that the lady who owned the store was safe
as she was often alone when she closed her shop.  He was a well known and much loved
member of his local community.  His death was grieved by his local San Diego
community where they held a candle-light vigil for him and many expressed their
disbelief that he was gone.  These are just a scant few examples of what a kind and
caring man he was and why not only our gaming community lost a great deal on that
fateful day, but also shows why there was tremendous sadness among the community in
which he lived.

It is near to 10 years since his passing and there are many times I wonder, "What
would Rich think about this...."  I miss my friend dearly to this day and I hope you
will come join us in this contest idea which he himself came up with.  He thought we
should all learn to appreciate what Jorja does to keep our smaller arenas alive and

The contest will be held in Morya, arena 28, beginning on the turn that is due on
November 6th, 2014 (turn 378 I believe).  Tourney participation is not allowed during
the contest but the contest will start after the fall Mailer so you can get your
warriors a few fight experience should you choose to.  The timing of the contest was
done to allow entry into the fall mailer.

The rules are fairly simple and inspired to let us all feel what it is like to run
warriors like Jorja does.  Her teams across Alastari may sometimes be taken for
granted so this contest will allow us to appreciate her teams a little better as they
populate the arenas we fight in.

The Rules--

There are no challenges, avoids, bloodfeuds, or tourneys allowed and only one single
use of the Dark Arena is allowed after the contest begins.  Win or lose the Dark
Arena is allowed but once, so if you want your warrior dead be sure and throw the

The contest will last for 12 turns.  May I point out that if you use your Dark Arena
fight you will get either 2 points, for winning, or -2, for losing, and ALL fights

count in the scoring.  It matters not if you fight a non-contest warrior or a stand-
in; they still count as much as fighting a contest warrior.  This will be a test of
basic strategy with a touch of luck added in as well.

If anyone should break the no tourney rule they will lose 5 points for each warrior
entered and those warriors, and any subsequent warriors who replace them in death,
cannot score points!  The one exception are the dead tourneys.  Should you wish you
may enter your warriors in dead tourneys, since they are not a member of your team,
or even the living, at the time.  The warrior may even return to the contest if a
natural opening can be found for it, or you choose to use your Dark Arena fight to
make that opening (if you still have that option left).  Break the no DA, challenge,
or avoid rules and you will be DQed as soon as the transgression is discovered.  To
keep the contest playing field as level as possible, we will have no messing with
these rules.  Of course you may DA the one time, just as a clarification, but the
second time gets you DQed.  This also counts if it is found you bring a second team
in for the purpose of making challenges; you will be DQed.

Scoring is as follows:

1 point for winning
1 point for killing (giving 2 in total, 1 for the win and 1 for the kill)
1 point for at least one of your warriors writing a personal (regardless of number of
  personals beyond one you still only get one point).  Make sure it is written from
  one of your team's warriors and not simply the manager entity or you will not get
  the point.
-1 point for losing
-1 point for being killed (giving -2 in total, -1 for losing and -1 for being killed)
-5 points and the loss of that warrior's slot for scoring the remainder of the
  contest for entering a warrior into a REGULAR tourney (again DEAD tourney is open)

The Prizes:
1st place -- +1 bonus to one warrior on the team, 1 resurrection potion, and 1
  favorite knowledge
2nd place -- +1 bonus for one warrior, 1 favorites knowledge
3rd place -- +1 bonus for one warrior

Iron Manager Award -- Run 54 of the possible 60 fights and get a +1 bonus potion

The bonus potions and favorites knowledge must be used on warriors with 5 FE or more
and MUST be used within 2 turns of the end of the contest.  The resurrection potion
must be used within 6 months of the end of the contest but may be used on any warrior
regardless of FE.  ALL prizes must be used on the contest team, they are NOT
transferable to another team!

If you wish to participate please notify Street Legal via Personal Ad in arena 28, on
the Duel2 forums, or in Chatzy!
