                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MAMBOLAND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, D.A. REJECTS, since 
LES TURFISTES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  With any 
luck, I can sneak into The Welcome Wench and join BUBBA'S CLAM SHACK's celebration 
over their good record this turn.  2nd place, not bad.  Oh, this is too good to be 
true!  ROYAL FLUSH has fallen to 25th place after going 2-3-0 this turn.  Who's 
bragging now?  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, PAWN OF 
PROPHECY, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see TOBIAS FUNKE win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, ODIN AVERSSON beat GOLD DUST and GOLD DUST lost 19 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  CASTLE THUNDER Dark Arena Challenged SUBTERFUGE for MAMBOLAND's Title this 
turn, and guess what happened?  The crowds were amazed this turn, as SUBTERFUGE 
killed the Duelmaster, CASTLE THUNDER, leaving OTTODROME TW in mourning.  This 
incredible death has allowed, I might add, RU BRINGER from LES TURFISTES to ascend to 
the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  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, 
MAMBOLAND?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  SERPENTS HOLD 200 was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SHEWISH BUFFET.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, RU BRINGER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, RU BRINGER was 
challenged by STARSCREAM, who was ranked 30 points below him.  Not that I'm surprised 
or anything, but STARSCREAM was put to death by RU BRINGER, leaving the latter lower 
for recognition points.  I guess I can give a little credit to SAAVY SWINGER of CLAN 
KITFOX for challenging up by 22 to LILITH.  SAAVY SWINGER lost to get 2 points of 
recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone 
else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  DAHAK's 5-13-0 has earned him the Dark Arena.  
Gee, DEAD GAWDS, ain't it past due for sending YAMA Dark Arena?  What took ol' 
'7-7-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys 
and girls, STARSCREAM of DARQUE FORCES has added the final loss to his 16-15-1.  Tee 
hee!  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  DEATH, a glorious 9-10-0 fighter, has passed 
away.  Gee, too bad DEAD GAWDS.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, VOLUND of JOMSVIKINGS has added the final loss to his 10-23-1.  Tee hee!  I 
can't say as I'm proud to find out that LES TURFISTES' RU BRINGER has killed 
STARSCREAM from DARQUE FORCES.  I can say I wish DARQUE FORCES good luck in their 
bloodfeud.  It's about time DEPUTY FIFE got beat for picking on warriors like FLESH 
HUNTER.  Bravo, BAAL'S MINIONS.  See you at The Welcome Wench.  So, BAAL'S MINIONS, 
just going to let FANG SKIN rot in peace are we?  Bye bye Bloodfeud, hello gloating 
arrogant ZITH.  Consider BRAIN LES gone, and GARBAGE PAIL KIDS unfeeling, letting the 
bloodfeud for his death go unrevenged.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in MAMBOLAND to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of MAMBOLAND.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

SLAUGHTER CHALLENGE 2

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
populated!

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
fight!

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!

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $149.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI.

Please make your reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

Look for the tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope 
you're all looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
