                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  FLOYDS FAN CLUB had cause to celebrate, after TALON got 17 points by 
beating BIG DAVE DIODE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 11 points to TALON.  (Discrete enough, BIG DAVE DIODE?) 
BOBBI found out that ARDIVENT isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARDIVENT farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Reagan -- Sorry about the challenge down to you and this late response.  I wanted a
rematch, but didn't expect to see you with that low of recognition.  However I see
that you made your way back to the top again; see you on the sands again.  It's good
to have competition out there, makes the games exciting. -- Silver Fury

Flint Hills -- I thought Flint shattered easily, hmm.  Guess I didn't know your
breaking point.  I'll bring more than a shield next time. -- B P

Floyd B. Rick -- Sir, that was well done.  Seldom have I been defeated with such
style.  I salute you. -- Valley Jo

Reagan -- I thought golems weren't interested in that kind of thing. -- Bernina
Collin
P.S.  I'm going to get a steel bra, see if I don't.

Talon -- RIPPED fore and aft, up and down, side to side, with a SCREECH of talons on
slate (my flint was at the cleaners).  Ouch. -- Flint Hills

Palanticetra -- (uncommunicative grunt) -- Gneiss Guy

The Fratsfan Noble is, like, totally no fun at all.  I think it's because he's short.
And blond.  I mean, blonde on a woman is great, but, like, blond guys are the pits.
Olive pits.  Their teeth are too shiny.  And, of course, this one is short, too.  So
you see. -- Debra Collin

(no name by request), Assassin -- Okay, I will grant that you did the King's work.
The old "it's a dirty job but somebody has to do it" thing.  Whether the work was
something the King should have asked anyone to do is another matter, but not your
concern, I suppose.  That's the "I was just following orders" bit.  I do not and will
not be brought to see it as a NOBLE work.  People think that as a golem, I will not
care about the wastage of human life.  Not so.  All life is precious.  I hope you do
not fall into that ignoble way of life again. -- Valley-Jo

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.
