                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROBESPIERRE, who flew up 31 points in 
the rankings after mashing FREDDIE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Well, 
if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  TAIL IN THE AIR 
did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  It's a proud day for the BLADES OF 
TERROR stable, as their warrior, ROBESPIERRE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can 
you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JURINE arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Well, the arena is no place for slow learners (and 
hopefully T.P.s) and ROBESPIERRE demonstrated that very violently on FREDDIE's body.  
Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the 
trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JURINE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Arena Felines -- I just want to say what a pleasure it is to share an arena with 
someone like yourself who is always out for kills.  Trent Lott didn't matter to me, 
but George Dubya definitely did.  Thanks again, neighbor.  It's nice having you 
around. -- The Sentinel, mgr. Death by Stupidity

Cool Cat -- So I see, positively frigid.  Ick.  I hate the cold. -- A Bell Azizizi

M.C. Cat -- Is that like being Scotish?  You know, McCat, that kind of thing. -- Keta
P.S.  I'd offer to take you home and take care of you, but you're way too big.  I 
wouldn't have room for me!

Kit-Kat -- So, I graduate!  This is good, and I'll take the candy bar, too. -- 
Freddie

Kung-Fu Master -- So!  You thought you could "get" me with your sneaky foreign 
tricks, did you?  Ha!  Were you ever wrong! -- Delores

know. -- Ms S.B. Anthony

22 October 2004
                         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.
