                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ILLIS.  MVP award for UMI?  IMPROVED 
ILLUSION's proud of her after beating THERE IS A GOD and getting 16 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  SIMON MAGUS got smashed by UDUN HELLFIRE, and lost 2 
points!  What a putz!  BRANA GOREFANG fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits 
fighting and loses the title.  No one said she was a genius...  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome UMI.  Aren't 
IMPROVED ILLUSION proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  ROYAL FAMILY ZUL was ILLIS' most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why IMPROVED ILLUSION's 
been avoiding ROYAL FAMILY ZUL so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  It was kind of sad, seeing old THERE IS A 
GOD stumbling around the arena, before UMI finished it off.  Oh well!  It was so 
gross when UMI of IMPROVED ILLUSION killed THERE IS A GOD.  They should start making 
warriors use safer weapons, or more shields, or something...  Hey you guys, don't you 
think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for 
you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Civil War/The Crusades

The next edition of the Civil War series is to be held in Tobir, arena 14, beginning
November 25th with a round where all participating managers must DA all 5 of their
warriors; in addition all warriors must be prefixed with an A an F or a D in the
following manner:  A-Broke Stroker or (A) Broke Stroker.  Names simply beginning with
the letter of your federation will NOT count as properly prefixed!  Existing teams
are welcome but no warrior who survives the DA who had prior Fight Experience (arena
or tourney) will be allowed to score or challenge into the contest teams.  There will
be an equal number of teams set up for each of the three factions (Andorian, Free
Blades, and Delarquan) to create sides as equal as possible.  This along with the DA
round should set up pretty equal footing for all managers.  After the DA there will
be another round where you can either DA again or fight your new, or surviving,
warriors so they will be set up to challenge an opponent beginning on round 1.  So as
a recap DA round, turn 0, then turn 1 it begins with the following rules:

The Civil War to be held in arena 14.
- The contest runs for 10-28 turns (barring ties).
- No tourney participation allowed.  Teams with warriors participating in any
  tournament are disqualified.
- An even number of teams per faction worked out by the Faction Leaders.  No later
  substitutions are allowed.
- If a manager brings in a second team and challenges into the contest he is DQ'd and
  his side will fight one team short!
- Three factions will be participating:  Andorian, Delarquan, Free Blades
- Everyone prefixes their warrior with A-, F-, or D- (No prefix = disqualification of
  the warrior)
- Turn DA:  (The DA Round) November 25, 2006.  Every warrior must DA.  (Warriors not
  DA'd on Turn 0 are disqualified)
- Turn 0:  December 9th, 2006.  There will be no scoring this turn it is meant to
  allow for challenges on turn 1.
- Turn 1+:  Scoring as detailed below
- Each team gets 1 point for defeating a warrior from an opposing team.
- Fights against warriors on your team do not generate points in any situation.
- The team with the most points each turn gets a Battle Point (if there is a tie for
  the most points then no Battle Points are accrued)
- The first team to 10 Battle Points wins the war
- Managers of teams on the winning side each receive a +1 bonus potion to be used on
  a warrior on their contest team.  This must be applied within a month of the
  conclusion of the contest and the team must have been active on the last turn of
  the contest.

Anyone wishing to participate, and feels they can probably stick around for the
duration (don't want to handicap a side, of course unforeseeable events cannot be
planned for), should either diplo me at THE DEATH SQUAD(63) in Tobir (arena 14) or
place a personal ad in the arena.  You may also contact me via the Duel2.com boards!
Let me know which faction you would like to fight for!  This contest is intended to
be open to ALL managers wishing to pit themselves against each other to try and
determine which faction has the best managers! -- Street Legal

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.
