                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARDIVENT!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Some people say I ramble too much, 
I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well WE GOT GAME moved 
up 1, to 5th.  What's with KASPAROV?  He actually beat BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' BILLY JOE, 
and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at WE GOT GAME 
while they watched CAPABLANCA clobber HEREFORD JONES.  He lost 10 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, DEATHSCAR wasn't good 
enough at persuading JANIS JOBLIN to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
     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, WE GOT GAME!  The bums at FANDILS couldn't face the challenges from WE GOT 
GAME!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, BLIND OWL!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of ARDIVENT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

A salute to Janis Joblin, Duelmaster of Ardivent, with her very fine record.  Hubba
hubba. -- Fandil The Wise

Hollowshade -- Provocation?  There are none that I know.  Perhaps informational
requests were mistaken for animosity?  Deathscar and all warriors of all levels are
welcome to compete in Ardivent, The Red Sands. I welcome you and your fine warrior.
May you both grow and prosper and avoid the curse of The Red Sands. -- WOF

Winehouse -- It was my pleasure to win.  I am more of a Roy Acuff.  Johnny Cash fan,
I might add. -- Earl

Veteran Merc and Polite Beggar -- Thanks for being there and providing what
competition you did. -- Casper John and Mildred Leona

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands Await. -- Fandil The Wise

0-5.  Now that's a warm welcome home.  Thanks, you bastards! :) -- Chess Master, We
Got Game.

Janis Joblin -- I have heard that the new trend is open handed combat.  I did not
mean to try it so soon upon my return, however.  Awesome duel!  Thought I had you,
when I knocked you down and broke your weapon.  But it was not to be ... -- Tal

Deathscar -- Dang!  You're pretty good. -- Capablanca

Hereford Jones -- Explain to me, please, how you lost 14 fights. -- Nimzovich

Usurper -- You out-strategized me, this time.  Good design.  Good strategy.  And that
armor!  Must be at least +2 defense vs my weapon.  Either that, or it was made of
rubber.  But no excuses here, good show! -- Kasparov

Two-three, and Fingers is DEAD?  Looks like he jinxed himself with that comment about
miracles.  Yes, Virginia, there ARE negative miracles, and Fingers just got one.  But
he contributed to it, you know, he always thought he was tougher than the reality. --
Hereford Jones

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!
