                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TRICORUS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, WOLVERINE fought DELANGE and 
gained 17 points and contributed to WENSINWASIN M.H.'s 2-0-0.  DELANGE has lost to 
WOLVERINE, falling 6 points, while helping make DARK HORSEMEN a 1-3-0 turn.  
SPIDER-MAN challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
FRUITS' warrior.  And all eyes were on SPIDER-MAN this turn as he ascended to the 
throne of Duelmaster.  TRICORUS has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor for 
me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Silver Chalice 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the DARK HORSEMEN stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TRICORUS, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided DARK HORSEMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was AMAZON 
ELITE.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, TRICORUS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TRICORUS and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TRICORUS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE 
CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
