                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Smoking his cigoora, recently imported from around Zukal, Crypt Keeper allowed
his aching bones to finally relax.  It had been a busy day in this damp cold city...a
city and atmosphere in which he relished.  The orders had been given, and the first
order was to start cleaning the stable.  The wide attic space he rented had two small
windows, if you could call them that.  One of the glass panes offered a grim view of
the Citadel to the east.  Not too close a view, mind you, but one that was gloomy
enough for the Keeper to gaze at.
     The boot steps were heard climbing the stairs long before the rough splintery
door to his moment of peace was flung open.  Two constables strode in, instantly
spotting him and slamming the door behind them.  The first constable was a veteran by
all appearances, unshaven and all business, but it was the second that caught the
Keeper's attentions.  Young...so fresh to the world.  Probably new to the city, he
wouldn't be young for long.  They never stayed young for long, especially in a city
where the dead quickly floated downhill to the slums.
     The youthful constable did not stare for long at the Keeper.  Instead his
wandering eyes took in the lair.  At first he spotted the assortment of herbs that
hung from the rafters, most unidentifiable.  As many scents as the diverse and exotic
herbs emitted they could not fully cover the underlying stench of rotten meat...and
other, less pleasant smells.
     The young one's face scrunched up in disgust...until he spotted what at first
appeared to be old shriveled fruit stacked neatly in the far corner.  Then a bit of
comprehension dawned on the man and his eyes opened very wide indeed.
     "Manager Crypt Keeper, you have been warned about this twice before." the
veteran constable's gruff voice breaking the Keeper's attention from the fresh one.
Keeper slowly turned his eyes to the senior law keeper.
     "And...." the Keeper asked, his voice soft but intense.  Even this one word was
enough to set the Constable a bit back.
     "Another one has been found in the gutter, not two blocks from here, with his
throat torn out." the Constable said.
     The Keeper just stared at him for a minute, then replied, "I shall of course ask
my boys, but I assure you good law keeper, it was not one of mine."
     The Constable kept on, "And the fighter in your stable known as Ichorid was once
again starting trouble in the Five Finger Inn.  The other patrons said he was in his
cups, just staring at the bar, and talking to himself again."
     "So, what is so grievous there, o' wise one?" the Keeper almost, but not quite,
smirked.
     The constable quickly replied, "He was talking about a battle, in great detail,
which happened over 100 years ago!!"
     "Perhaps he likes history, gentleman."  The smirk was out in the open this time.
     "Perhaps, perhaps not, Keeper.  The details we recorded are very disturbing.
Expect a summons soon.  Good day, 'Keeper'." the constable stated professionally
before abruptly turning on his heels and heading towards the door.
     Before he left Keeper could hear him tell his young apprentice, "Quit staring
like a gap tooth from Sunset and let us be on."
     As his filmy grey eyes studied the door by which the fools had just left, Keeper
leaned back in his chair carefully, the only way his vile and painful skin affliction
allowed, and picked his cigoora back up.  Inhaling deeply he slowly swiveled his
chair back to his little window view of the Citadel...Salem's Lot would be busy
indeed, in the nights to come.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for DOUBLE-X.  Like, ROYAL FLUSH had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by THINGS I DROOL IN!  Way to go THINGS 
I DROOL IN!  SALEM'S LOT had like a really albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 
4-1-1 and wound up as 10th team!  See if I even talk to any of those losers in GAELIC 
STORM again!  Didja see where they got 1-4-1?  Somebody musta won a lotta fights!  
Wanna hear about a real loser?  Listen to this--SECOND BANANAS got 0-2-0 and dropped 
15.  Didn't see much of them after the fights!  One team deserves special mention 
'cause they moved up 5 after going 3-0-0.  Keep it up, DRAKE'S COMICS!  Talk about 
hot teams!  WOMEN OF WAR goes out, the very first time, and goes 4-1-1!  Like, what 
do you guys eat for breakfast?  MVP award for DON KING?  ROYAL FLUSH's proud of him 
after beating IRISH CAR BOMB and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
BABY got smashed by CRYPT ANGEL, and lost 15 points!  And I was just getting used to 
the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome SWAMP LILY HAMMER.  Aren't ALL 
SWAMP HAMMERZ proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of BLACK STORM must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys 
know something that I don't?  I don't know what SALEM'S LOT's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from BLACK STORM, that's fer sher.  Can 
THE SERPENTS' COBRA be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think SWAMP THUG HAMMER 
feels about being challenged by BEAR AWARE, 17 points above him?  SWAMP THUG HAMMER 
is a real man!  He was challenged by BEAR AWARE, 17 points above, and BEAT him!  Dark 
Arena, anyone?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out BEXAR challenged 
CHONG.  After all, haven't THE BEAR'S PAW and SMOKED OUT!!! had a long standing duel 
in DOUBLE-X?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but CHONG wants me to write 
about it since he lost to BEXAR.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All DOUBLE-X ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  SHADE'S FORM returns from 
the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at hers SALEM'S LOT teammates...  DON KING of 
ROYAL FLUSH wasn't planning on killing IRISH CAR BOMB, I bet.  Now he has to worry 
about being Bloodfeuded, and getting put on lists...  What a bummer!  BEAR SKINRUG 
got wasted by ROISIN DUBH!  But with a 12-10-1, I guess THE BEAR'S PAW aren't too 
bummed.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Hey, look at those Flushers with the 10-5 three-turn record!  Salute!  You can surely
tell the team competition is over!  (wink) -- Oz The All-Humorous

Congratulations to Fred Bear, Duelmaster of North Fork. -- Oz The All-Covetous

Fizban -- You were too much for me--magic and all! -- Magic Wand

Who would have thought it?  "The overall popularity leader is HUMBUG 5199."  Humbug
has not always been thought of as a "popular" person. -- Oz The ALL-Amused

Yeah, and I lost to Orc plague, too!  A Pox on him!  Bah............... -- Humbug

Cup Of Toe -- That was a good one.  I was lucky. -- BOQ

Swamp Thug Hammer -- My pretty, come to Miss Gulch.  Come here, little one. -- Miss
Gulch

Sir Killalot -- Well, sure.  One of us had to be big somewhere! -- Miss Gulch

Crypt Keeper and Salem's Lot -- Welcome to The Swamp--a.k.a. North Fork, a.k.a.
SCOMS Swamp, now a.k.a. Double-X.  May your stay be pleasurable. -- Oz The Welcome-
Wagon

Baphomet -- Thanks for taking on the leadership of the next and soon upcoming Turf
War.  You did a terrific job on the last one. -- Oz The All-Praising

Sister Mercy -- Hey, don't make a habit of doing that.  Ha.  Haha.  Get it? -- My
Sleep

Sister Mary Soultaker -- So when you gonna pony up and run a full team here?  It's
your duty, Judy.  You make it difficult to downch--I mean, challenge otherwise.  Or
go play your one and run game, I'm a patient man. -- Nuln, the patient (still)

Python -- I was gonna make some snake joke, but I'm just not up for it. -- B.C.C.

family of Red Mira -- Poor timing on my part, and a rude welcome.  My respects to the
deceased.  Abysmal is right. -- Pizza Pie Party

Cheech -- Way to give that Mordant deserter what he had comin'. -- Nuln

Crypt Keeper -- Welcome, and good luck here in 47.  We'll keep an eye on your lot. --
Nuln, mgr. of Things I Drool In

Armania -- Sorry to spill on you. -- Cups

Heathen -- My team here will be active next turn, but...that's for TW5.  Not a good
idea to carry on personal vendettas during a contest.  Screws it up for everyone
else.  So, since you challenge me, and give me the choice of arenas....DM #36-Jhans.
It's a wild arena and no one will mind the chaos.  Plus, it'll be nice having another
team there to build it up.  So, I accepted your challenge and named the arena.  It's
up to you now. -- Baphomet (my team in Jhans is Chop's Pride, post your challenges).
P.S.  What say the loser at the end of a year DA's his entire team and starts over,
eh?

Baphomet -- I am announcing my team, on loan from Nuln, "Things I Drool In," for the
competition in the TW 5, for the SCOMSS team. -- Sunuv Bloodlust (a.k.a. Son of
Bloodlust)

SCOMS -- It will be a pleasure dueling with you gentlemen. >:) -- Sunuv Bloodlust

D.K. Blackstorm -- All is well and am ready for the TW.  This one should be very
enjoyable! -- D.K. Toker
P.S.  I may miss next turn as Nov. will be a very busy month for me.  Don't know yet,
but just in case.

All -- Hope everyone did well in the mail-in! -- D.K. Toker

D.K. Heathen -- Letter received and one en route.  I do understand where you're
coming from.  I feel the same about S.O.'S! -- D.K. Toker

Crypt Keeper -- If I may ask...what happened to Sensei Jan?  Anyway, good luck and I
hope you enjoy you stay? -- D.K. Toker

DJI -- Good luck with your future! -- D.K. Toker

All -- The duplicitous vernacular and abundant arrogance returns.  See you in a month
or so!  As my will, so mote it be. -- Abraxis

Two years...where did the time go? -- CFH/Half Animal -- Half Machine

Goat -- Where you at? -- CFH/Rat Salad

Any who care-- I still have a lot of money tied up in Hyborian War, but as my games
finish, I will become more active in DM. -- CFH/Rat Salad

I hear there is a Turf War coming up.  As of right now I am an indie and will
probably remain that way for a while.  However, I would consider a TW roster spot
from those who offer.  Two things all should know:  1) I have never posted a negative
point total and have been the top point getter a couple of times for my alliances,
while I was active.  But, 2) I have never finished a Turf War.  Usually this is
because I have become disheartened by the weak play of my alliance mates.  I can't
recall exactly, but I believe one of them actually went 1000 in the hole once.
Regardless, I will stick this one out, since it will be my only arena for a while. --
CFH/Rat Salad

All -- As team captain I am declaring that The Iron Council will be participating in
this event.  The following managers will be fighting under The Iron Council Banner:
Ultraist, Jekyll, Tripwire, Otis the Drunk, Hucklecat, Hollowshade and Seraphim. --
Tripwire, Iron Council

All -- I am declaring my team Of Wolf and Man to be entered into the contest under
the Iron Council banner. -- Tripwire

Baphomet -- Went to post office this morning [October 30] to resend two letters that
were returned to me that I sent to you in June.  Also wrote another short letter.
Diplo me! -- Hammer

Swamp Citizens -- Am still alive and well in Doha, Qatar! -- Hammer

Max -- Answered an Email of yours several weeks ago.  My time is crunched over here!
-- Hammer

Chong -- Excellent fight!!!!  You pack a punch! -- Zombie Assassin

To any managers who can help -- I'm having difficulties with this Parry-Strike style.
Is it better to carry a shield or parrying weapon, or just take one weapon?  Also, if
a parry-strike can carry a normal amount of armor what armor should I employ?  Thx!

     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the

Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:

     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!

20 October 2006
In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
