                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  VEASTIAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
RIBSPLITTER?  WIDOWMAKERS' proud of him after beating SKUNNY WUNDY and getting 16 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FLESHRENDER got smashed by PENICILLEN, and 
lost 8 points!  What a putz!  RAYEK fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits 
fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting 
used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome SWORDBREAKER.  Aren't 
WIDOWMAKERS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All VEASTIAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What a bummer deal for UGLY WITCHMONKEY!  She just barely 
was getting hers "fighter feet" but got kill by NORPRAMINE of MEDS!  Those're the 
breaks, I guess.  I was SO depressed when I heard SKUNNY WUNDY got killed.  He was 
just a kid, and didn't get a fair chance in VEASTIAN, or anything!  What if they had 
a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

I didn't get the fights, so let's see what I can do without by way of personals....
Those e-newsletters can be a blessing! -- Jorja

Ed. -- Um, I'm above short bananas. -- Tiro Cococo

     I don't think the short ones taste as good though.  I suppose if you ARE worried
     about heights, they're better than nothing. -- Ed.

Swordbreaker -- Haven't we done this before? -- Nhavarl

Prednizone -- I have no resistance to drugs.  Unfortunately. -- Stiltz

Fleshrender -- You're a horrid person.  You have nasty habits.  And you probably
don't teach well, either. -- Tiro Cococo
P.S.  Go stand under a banana.

Ugly Witchmonkey -- Maybe eyeshadow would help?  Blusher.  Stuff like that.  Of
course, you'd have to shave first.

Winter Witch -- The very IDEA of you makes me shiver. -- Tiro Cuckoo

Jack -- Thanks to the autorun feature I never miss turns anymore.  Otherwise, I'd
have a horrible attendance record. -- Soultender

Trouble with this arena is there are only 3 warriors with less than 10 FE fighting
and 2 of them are mine.  Gonna be hard to crank out wins--but on the other hand, the
experience ought to be pretty good. -- Korgan Crusade

Tiro Cocococo -- You are above bananas?  Can I have yours?  I'm not above 'em.  I
love 'em. -- Space Baboon

Tiro Cococo -- Me!  Me!  I'll pay anything Space Baboon is offering and DOUBLE IT!
Mmm bananas! -- Ugly Witchmonkey

ZalCon2 Updates (1/9/04)

     The contest will be starting on the turn due February 23rd, 2004 and run for 20
turns.
     Only one team will be allowed for each manager in the contest, regardless of
whether additional teams are announced as contest entries.  No exceptions for any
reason.
     The Style Master points should read that there is +1 point for beating a member
of your own style even if the warrior is not registered for the contest.
     Rolling points for consecutive turns as Style Master means that your warrior
gets the extra point every turn after the first 3 that he continues to hold the
title.
     The points for Quality Wins should be clarified to read the winning warrior is
ranked below by the number of recognition points needed for each bonus point at the
start of the fight.  For example, Warrior A (3-2-0, 17) beats Warrior B (4-1-0, 35)
and receives 2 bonus points under Quality Win for the 18 point difference in the
ranking.
     I believe that is all the clarifications for the moment, please feel free to
email, diplo, call or write me with any other questions or concerns about the
contest.

                                    CHAOTIC WINDS
     Once, long ago, the four Winds of Time descended upon Alastari like a TEMPEST of
epic proportions, they slew everything within their all-encompassing reach.  They
left nothing.  In their wake lay smoldering ruins.
     In their haste they sped towards the center of this great land like a colossal
giant would step across an ocean.  The four storms picked up momentum on their way
towards each other.  A collision was eminent.
     The first storm wind, the oldest and wisest of the four was named APEXALUS.  The
second, FLAGGSTAFF, was the quickest and loudest entity ever created.  The third Wind
of Time was MATRIATIN, neither old or young, quick or slow, but fierce and feisty all
the same.  The forth wind, ASSAMITHIUS, the youngest yet most creative in its means
of destruction.
     When finally they merged at the center of ALASTARI, an incredible destructive
explosion occurred.  And when the smoke and debris cleared they were one.  CHAOS was
born.
     And Chaos spread across the diminished lands reeking havoc and doom with its
passing, and destroying allover again that which already lay in ruin.
