     Suicide, Mammon and Lilith strode into the Code Red sparring session.
     "I could not believe what I saw," Suicide said.
     "Killer, you went down way too easy," Lilith said.
     "Don't talk," Suicide said before his warriors could say anything, "I have a
plan that should be foolproof, for some anyway."
     Judge stepped up, "We will be ready."
     A fireball slammed to the ground in from of him, "I heard that for so long it
doesn't have meaning anymore!"
     "What is the plan?" Lethal asked.
     "Simple, we change direction a little, I have been seeing some get way too
comfortable," he looked around at his stable, "it is time to crack some skulls."
     The warriors nodded.
     "We got this?" Mammon asked.
     "Oh, yes," Man Hunter put in.

     Killer and Lethal were trying to figure out what to wear for the meeting at the
cemetery.
     "You know this door is a little loose," Lethal said.
     "Judge has a screwdriver," Killer said heading out.
     Judge was in his room going over some case files when he heard a knock and told
them to come in.
     "I need a screwdriver," Killer said.
     "I'm out of vodka."
     Killer shook her head, "The door to my room is loose."
     "Oh, um, drawer on the left," Judge said pointing.
     Killer walked to the desk and opened the drawer and started looking, "All you
got in here is gin, scotch and tonic."
     Judge turned to her, "Top drawer."
     She slammed the drawer and opened the top one, "Got it."
     She started for the door, "You shouldn't get caught drinking too much with your
record."
     Judge shot her a glance, "Back talking a judge, that's two years hard labor."
     Killer shook her head and walked out.
     "Being stuck up, that should be some lashes," thought Judge.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DOUBLE-X brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DARQUE FORCES, since 
THINGS I DROOL IN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If The 
Swinging Aardvark is buying drinks for LAND OF OZ's good turn, I'm afraid the place 
will be dry before long.  A 3-2-0 makes for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can sneak 
into The Swinging Aardvark and join THE SERPENTS' celebration over their good record 
this turn.  17th place, not bad.  If The Swinging Aardvark is buying drinks for 
PALINDROMES' good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 3-1-0 makes 
for a big thirst.  Why not, I'm having a good day, so I feel sorry for ABYSMAL RITES, 
who went 0-5-0 and dropped 16 into 22nd.  Here's my pity, for what it's worth.  Look 
out below!  EMPIRE RISING is on the way down, falling to 30th from 12th with a 1-3-0! 
Ha ha ha ha!  Now let's all watch ROYAL FLUSH's heads swell from their 4-1-0 this 
turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SMOKESCREEN win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SMOKESCREEN beat MINOR BLUE and MINOR BLUE lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
TEMPUS challenged DOUBLE-X's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as TEMPUS takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the 
old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling 
you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, DOUBLE-X?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  DOUBLE-X, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
THE OPERA the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like LAND OF OZ avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, MEDEE was this turn's 
most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  MEDEE was challenged by 
one of OLD HABITS' warriors this turn, with SISTER SLEDGE having a lead of 33 points 
going into the fight.  Question now is, will DOUBLE-X accept this sort of tacky 
behavior?  SISTER SLEDGE beating MEDEE.  The insult, the....yech!  I suspect either a 
21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but COURT JESTER has challenged up by 32 in an 
attempt against MY SLEEP.  And sure, COURT JESTER lost alright, but gained 3 
recognition for its pains.  And pains they may indeed be!  And we have BOQ in a 
challenge, going down 11 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought BOQ showed 
great skill and promise when he won victory over JUSTICE FOR ALL.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in DOUBLE-X to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of DOUBLE-X.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place--

Father O'Malley -- Bless you.  (grin...I'm a Catholic!). -- Baphomet

Suiside -- Drop me a diplo and let me know where you are.  In case you aren't
aware...I'm a free man now as is Sir Chester.  TCB folded...unless you wish to carry
it on...feel free to do so.  I hand the alliance dealings over to you formally. --
Baphomet

Sister Mary Sarah, Duelmaster.  Has a spiritual ring to it; doesn't it.  All hail to
the good witch Sarah. -- Oz The All Praising

Duelmaster, Chartered recognition Leader, Popularity Leader, this Week's Favorite,
Top Team On The Move, Top Career Honors Chartered team...and a partridge in a pear
tree.  The Fellowship Of The SCOMSS on the move. -- Oz The All Publicizing

Heathen -- It appears you may have brought on some very emotional responses to you
last turn.  My, my.  What did you do? -- Oz The All Interested

Master Darque -- Mortal?  Of course SCOMSS is mortal.  With some great strategy, and
a little luck--anything can happen.  Even death. -- Oz The All Mortal

Medee -- You were just plain too much for me.  Your attack skills far exceed mine.
(wink) -- BOQ

Crescent -- I think I can; I think I can; I think I can.  I DID! -- Miss Gulch

Suculant -- When you took that weapon out of my hand, and wouldn't allow me to draw
my backup, (What magic did you use, by the way?) you strung me out for collapsation.
My fists still hurt. -- Magic Wand

Cindi Bear and Bear's Paw -- It was not my intention to kill.  The random matchup was
clearly not a lucky MUGS day for Cindi.  And she was really kinda cute.  Mea Culpa.
I will understand your need for retaliation. -- Winkie

Rapture -- It was a close one.  Nice skills you learned for yourself.  Really nice.
-- Nikko

Congratulations to Father O. who was able to graduate two lovely Sisters in the same
turn.  A salute to Sister Mary Sarah and sister Sledge for all they have done for
SCOMSS. -- Oz The All Thankful

Snuln -- Great turn (5-0), you rascal! -- Oz The All Covetous

Father O -- Great turn (5-0), you rascal! -- Oz The All Praising

Tripwine -- Thank you for pointing me in the right direction--I rarely read the team spotlights, so that's likely why I missed it.  No excuse though; I hope you and your alliance can accept my apologies, as it wasn't meant as an insult. -- Kon, Empire
Rising

Seraphim -- My apologies to you for the implication.  It wasn't personal--I was
honestly curious where/when you declared. -- Kon

Old Habits -- Quite the turn & Congrats on the invites.  Will you let these two
really go out in style? -- Crip

Master Darque -- Oh sure, you apologize for the killing of Drama Queen, valiantly
state that you await the bloodfeud, then strategically refuse to let Kill*Switch
return from the tourney!  We know your type! -- Crip, mngr. of Royal Flush

Master Darque -- Nice numbers on Orc Plague.  I had a twin of that who just couldn't
win vs. TPs because of little damage doing and a Riposte favourite learn, but I
recognize that this is a fun character nonetheless. -- Crip

Oz the all Praising -- What's this Ten Is Raquet you speak of? -- Crip

Tempus -- We've avoided you each of the last two turns, yet somehow, your challenges
both still got through.  Who have you been bribing at the Gladiatoral Commission? --
Jack & Jill

Smokescreen -- Shouldn't that read Eddie Gaedel? -- Bullpen Ace

Salsa Elemental -- I see the FtF did you well.  Nice Train. -- The Lion King

Baphomet -- I will be m.i.a. for a while, my money is funny! -- Abraxis

Woody -- Good name, bad spot....  Change it. -- Lethal
P.S.  Call it target.

Queen of Tarts -- You take forever, but I ain't gonna wait that long.  The tournament
was yours, the rematch will be mine. -- Deadly

Blade -- You moved too fast for me.   Wish they had instant replay to slow it down
some. -- Killer (a little dazed still)

Swamp Mudd Hammer -- Good fight, had me worried for a second there, hopefully, I
won't have to see you in my courtroom. -- Judge

ANNOUNCMENT -- HAIL to all the participants of the great TW!!!!!  It seems that the
contest of arms runs well, despite some childish outbursts from time to time.  Let it
be known that my absence is due to a great conflict with my personal code of
honor (yes some people do have it) and I am always one to stand by my convictions.  I
regret NOTHING.  I take the good and the bad.  For those interested, I have never
betrayed or backstabbed any of my former allies in the DE, even though I have
Heathen's full roster, NO ONE will ever see!  Sorry guys!  I'm not a traitor, but I really do wish some managers would get back to reality, or if reality is worse for
some of you, then I suggest a major overhaul of your current enviroment and friends
(groups, affiliations--hint, hint).  In other words, "if you act like a donkey,
you'll be treated like one"--famous last words!!??  Hahaha whatever. -- Blackstorm
P.S.  Return scheduled around x-mas--be ready!

All -- Please add Sister Maryjane as our new champion. -- Father O'Malley
