     Suicide burst into Code Red's training room, "What was that? You, you, oh you
didn't...couldn't oh you."
     "He seems kinda mad," Man Hunter said.
     A fireball fell in front of him, "Mad, oh I am beyond that.  You really screwed
up, if I did not see it myself I would not believe it."  His scales glowed a
brilliant red, yellow of his eyes glowed as another fireball formed in his left hand.
     "We will get it done," Judge said stepping forth.
     "The line must be drawn before the Gathering so get to it."
     They nodded as Suicide strode out.
     Killer ran out a little later.
     Suicide was in his study with Lilith and Mammon.
     "We going to take souls with them?" laughed Mammon
     "We got to start somewhere," Suicide put in.
     "Oh come on," Mammon said getting up, "that performance was pathetic."
     Killer come in with a flowing green cloak, "I made this for you, see how
wonderful you'll look," she said hanging it on Suicide's shoulders.
     He stroked it and it burst into flames, "If you would spend more time working on
your finesse then sewing you might have something to brag about."
     Killer stormed out.
     "We have to come up with something that will bring them to their knees," Mammon
said.
     "One at a time," Suicide put in.
     "One, two, or seven, it doesn't matter," Mammon said.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DOUBLE-X!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as EMPIRE RISING is pushed out 
of top team by DARQUE FORCES, who came from 2nd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  I understand 
that The Welcome Wench is buying the drinks for JGW PERISHABLE tonight, to honor 
their rise to 8th after this turns 3-2-0.  Hmmm.  Now, what did these guys have for 
breakfast this morning?  IRON LEGION has turned a 4-1-1 into 9th place from 20th.  
Give me the recipe!  I want to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The 
Welcome Wench, seeing as SALEM'S LOT's 68-64-6 has earned them 11th place in the 
ranks.  It doesn't rain, but it pours for EMPIRE RISING this turn, a 1-4-0 causing a 
11 flight drop in the team rankings.  Hand that team a dry towel.  Now, what did 
these guys have for breakfast this morning?  MALICE KEEPERS has turned a 3-2-0 into 
18th place from 31st.  Give me the recipe!  I understand that The Welcome Wench is 
buying the drinks for TIMELY HEROES tonight, to honor their rise to 22nd after this 
turns 2-3-0.  Hmmm.  Our condolences (or sneers, as the case may be) go out to ROYAL 
FLUSH for their drop to 24th from 5th.  A 0-4-0 can do that.  CODE RED must be either 
in pain, or numb, having dropped from 7th to 25th this turn, with a 2-3-0 acting as 
the weight.  Now, what did these guys have for breakfast this morning?  PANDORA'S BOX 
has turned a 3-2-0 into 33rd place from 46th.  Give me the recipe!  The SECOND 
BANANAS guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, WINKIE fought CINDI 
BEAR and gained 26 points and contributed to LAND OF OZ's 3-2-1.  TURF WAR TUFFIE has 
lost to FRASIER, falling 12 points, while helping make EMPIRE RISING a 1-4-0 turn.  
Due to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, MORWHEN has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  We should ask SISTER MARY SARAH about the thrill of victory, and what 
being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the 
INDIFFERENCE stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on DOUBLE-X, what are 
you afraid of?  And guess who avoided INDIFFERENCE stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was OF WOLF AND MAN.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
GEORGE WASHINGTON from TIMELY HEROES was DOUBLE-X's most challenged warrior this 
turn.  CYANIDE from DOK SIK KILLAS took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 68 
points in a challenge against SISTER MARY SARAH.  Well, CYANIDE lost to SISTER MARY 
SARAH, but CYANIDE gained 2 in recognition for hers efforts.  Thank goodness for 
small favors.  In a brave attempt, COURT JESTER from EMPIRE RISING challenged up 22 
points to fight PIZZA PIE PARTY from the THINGS I DROOL IN stable.  COURT JESTER 
perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it lost to PIZZA PIE PARTY and ended up with 
76 recognition points.  BOB'S COMIC COLLECTN of THINGS I DROOL IN had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought 
BOB'S COMIC COLLECTN showed great skill and promise when it subdued SAMURAI.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  You gotta do what you gotta do.  DARK PINNACLE has sent OPAI to the 
Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  This is not good 
to see.  Why pray tell has OPAI been sent to the Dark Arena by DARK PINNACLE?  And 
why with a 16-4-0 record??  The manager of THE BEAR'S PAW will not be pleased to 
learn that CINDI BEAR, a 2-0-1 fighter, has been killed at the hands of LAND OF OZ's 
WINKIE.  Kudos go out to SISTER MERCY this turn, for revenging OLD HABITS' bloodfeud 
against OF WOLF AND MAN's warrior BLACKENED.  Well done.  Is it really true that 
DOUBLE-X has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in DOUBLE-X, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in DOUBLE-X again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Con Heathen -- In support of showing your stupidity, I give you this quote from
Seraphim in the North Fork newsletter on turn 242;

"Greetings all -- I have been courteously invited by the Iron Council to participate
with them in this season's Turf War.  In appreciation for the invitation, a new
legion has been formed in friendship with the Iron Council.  I hereby declare my Iron
Legion stands ready and fights under the banner of the Iron Council.  Let our
opponents tremble and a new Iron age commence. -- Seraphim"

As for the rules, there is another quote;

"NO switching alliance once verified by an alliance that a team has declared for.
This rule begins on the first turn of the TW5."  (by Baphomet)

I would take this as a set in stone measure.  You declare for an alliance, you are in
it.  It does have gray area since it does not specifically state about a team
dropping and adding another one, but that wouldn't be right to have a ringer come in
for a team that is failing.  At any point, here's another quote for you to help with
your problem;

"I reserve the right for all final decisions."  (by Baphomet)

Seems your arguments are moot since he's already ruled about the situation.

I can understand wanting to make sure the rules are followed, but by your childish
outcries you seem to lack the intelligence to function in this arena, nor any part in
Alastari society.  Please do everyone a favor and crawl back in the hole for the rest
of the month or longer.  At least there you can be closer to the demons that can
revel in your hatred and anger. -- Joseph G. Wellington, manager of JGW Perishable

All -- My apologies to the above, but I cannot stand by and let someone try to
influence a contest that is ongoing, even if the arguments contain or lack substance;
in this case the latter. -- JGW

All Turf War Managers -- Since the loss of Ray Monroe, our guild's champion, there
has been a void.  Today this void is filled with the presentation of Kelly Carpenter,
our new champion.  In the case our champion dies at the Rookie's tournament the next
choice of champion will be Tracy Williams, another Rookie's tournament entry.  In the
case both die, then I will have to consider some type of sacrifice to the gods to
quell their bloodlust for my warriors. -- JGW

All -- For anyone interested, Orc Plague was a fine Wall of Steel that I enjoyed
running.  He was 11+1-17-5-17-17-5-13.  He leaves with 88 learned skills and is +4
Parry if my math is to be trusted.  His faves according to the GC are GS, HI/VL, and
learns Init. -- Master Darque

Royal Flush -- Thank you for the well wishes.  Our apologies for the death of Drama
Queen.  We await the blood feud. -- Darque Forces

Liam -- Thanks. -- Master Darque

Buddy Lee -- Congrats on Opai!  It is no small feat to hold the throne of North Fork
for consecutive turns. -- Master Darque

SCOMSS -- You are mortal, I proved it last turn.  The problem is that it took a
controversial turn with 15 inactive teams, 2 well-calculated challenges, one freak
random match up death, and something about a comet that I missed to get it done. --
Master Darque

I was going to write a Duelmaster Column for Morwhen to help his little manager out,
but then I thought, "No, he's almost a big boy now.  He needs to learn how himself."
Therefore.... -- Oz The All Helpful

Baphomet -- Old friend, just letting you know that the first-half SCOMSS-booty has
not yet arrived.  Is there an estimated arrival time? -- Oz The All Questioning

SCOMSSers everywhere -- Another solid turn!  Thanks again for carrying me, especially
while I am gaining weight.  You guys are just the best!  What a Fellowship! -- Oz The
All Thankful

Mad Max -- Now THAT was funny and well deserved! -- Oz The All Humbled

Hants -- Thank you.  Thank you; thank you; thank you!  Without your challenge, we
OZers would not have had a win!  I am so excited! -- Magic Wand (gloating gently--
well, perhaps gigantically)

Morwhen of Lost Souls and Sentinel The Small (but not of heart) -- Congrats on your
well-deserved Duelmastership. -- Oz The All Praising

Crip The Mighty -- A salute for holding BOTH Popularity Leader and This Weeks Fave!
Hip hip to Ten Is Racquet and Bullpen Ace. -- Oz The All Praising

Snulnlicker -- You carried all of SCOMSS last turn.  Wow!  Thanks!  This clearly
refutes the rumor that you are a part of FONZ.  (re: Anti's post) -- Oz The All
Ironic

Father -- Hey!  Two stylemasters!  Great work!  Praying must be the in thing. -- Oz
The All Converted

Red Devil -- You dirty, rotten, son-of-a-multi-twenty-one, piece of dung!  May the
bodies and souls of you and that diminutive (body AND mind) manager of yours burn
forever in purgatory. -- BOQ the Friendly

Drama Queen -- Yes I was known for taking out mega-manager scum.  Since you were too
much woman for me, a scum, and I did not take you out, I would assume that clarifies
that you are not managed by a Mega? -- Humbug The Philosophical Bah Guy

Raven -- You are too kind.  Perhaps some of that goodness could rub off on your long-
time companion, Sentinel? -- Oz The All Humble

Darque Forces, Salsa Elemental -- You are both real meanies to pick on a lady who is
down on her ways.  Real meanies!  May a house fall on you or the Wicked Witch of the
West eat you both for lunch! -- Miss Gulch

Raven -- X-Syndicate?  Was that something of note?  I seem to remember a SMALL blip
in history of something MICROSCOPIC like that.  Wasn't it related to the Titanic? --
Oz The All Interested

Kon -- Iron Legion/Seraphim declared for the Iron Council on turn 244 in a team
spotlight (it was caught in the middle of other spotlights).  This declaration was
approved by Baphomet. -- Tripwire

Tempus -- Have you considered a weapon that you won't make short work of? -- Jack &
Jill

Black Lotus -- Always have to scout out the transferees, to see if they need a
forehand or backhanded slap. -- Ten Is Raquet

Yellow Fever -- Hellooooo, McFly!  I'm a lion.  I'm already yellow.  Therefore you
can't hurt me.  QED. -- The Lion King

Bob's Comic Collection -- You are also a thing Crip drips ice cream upon. -- Bullpen
Ace

Kill*Switch --  We don't know what brought on that instant aggression at the end, but
Drama Queen will be missed.   12(1)-17(2)-8-6(1)-21(2)-15-11, with 34 Skills learned
including an AdEx Parry and an Expert in Riposte.   Well, she won't be missed that
much. -- The Gang at Royal Flush

Liam -- Good to hear from you.  Not even trolls could stop me.  Slow me down maybe,
but not stop.  When the fire starts it consumes those in its path. -- Suicide

Momba -- Good fight, but you should try not to over use your weakness.  Maybe if you
slowed your pace it would have turned a different outcome.  Or maybe not. -- Deadly

Lost Souls -- Sorry for the loss of Hallion but you must remember that it was you who
made the challenge. -- Barley

Morwhen and Lost Souls -- Congrats on the throne and the invite. -- Wretch

Oz -- Thanks for the acknowledgement and encouragement.  I hope to be around for a
long time and maybe even improve on my record. -- Wretch

Python -- You gotta squeeze a little tighter then that to get me. -- High Test

Reaper and MB -- Should have a full team ready to go after the tourney as long as no
one bites it at the tourney that is. -- Wretch

All -- I apologize for missing yet another turn.  My internet service was down, and
I've yet to receive the NL...ah well, from what service I've received from RSI
lately, I'm a bit miffed anyway...so be it.  I promise to be back next turn and with
a bit more on the ball with things. -- Baphomet (now once again able to monitor this
contest).

Tripwire -- Again, my many thanks for your stupendous job in keeping the tallies for
the contest....  I think at the end of it, you may find a little something in your
envelope as an appreciation from me. -- Baphomet

Heathen -- I don't even have to say anything and you drool all over yourself.  I see
the anger management classes didn't help you much, eh?  Seriously, beating me is
relatively simple...but can you take the losses in grace and good-will?  You never
have.  Even in winning, you find no grace and sportsmanship in it.  You see, I looked
at managers like The Consortium, Crip, Hammer, Mannequin, Kat, and (egads), Master
Darque and learned quite a bit from them.  You might do well to watch, observe and
learn from the likes of these also.  But, then again, I doubt that you will take sage
advice...you seem hell-bent on self-destruction. -- Baphomet

Orc Plague, Opai & Morwhen -- Congratulations to you and your manager on your
graduation.  And thanks especially for clearing out of challenging champs--three less
nasty warriors to deal on a regular basis is a blessing indeed. -- all of the
warriors of Things I Drool In

Bullpen Ace -- Snuln should have probably mentioned to the rest of the SCOMSS that he
has a really bad track record in past contests of randomly matching up with his
teammates.  In any event, the win gives me no pleasure. -- BCC

Stu -- What a fun and exciting fight, eh? -- Scum Fights

Bexar -- Thanks, that was just what the doctor ordered. -- My Pillow

Avatar of Woe -- I'm sure when the bookies looked at the fight at the beginning they
had no idea which way to lay the line.  I have a feeling we'll scrap again before
it's all said and done. -- Pizza Pie Party

Zombie Assassin -- I see now why your boss didn't send your boy the Avatar at me.
Nice fight, and I'll keep my schedule wide open for this turn in case you want one
more shot. -- My Sleep

Jack & Jill -- I do love to see you across the sands!  Another date perhaps? --
Tempus

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
