                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JURINE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with KJARRAN'S 
HAMMER?  He actually beat BLADE AND BLOOD's SHIVAREE SJDEN, and walked away with 20 
more points from the fight.  Major screwup at BLADE AND BLOOD.  SHIVAREE SJDEN lost 
13 points to KJARRAN'S HAMMER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SHIVAREE SJDEN 
will provide more easy wins...  What a role model for JURINE's young 'uns!  LION 
HEARTED becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure JURINE is 
excited about KJARRAN'S HAMMER, the new Duelmaster from FEAR FACTORY.  (remember?)  
But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects 
to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  What do people see in 
CHILLILI CHES?  Hers 17-30-1?  FAVORITE GUYS ain't talkin', but she's got 89 points.  
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  SIBI EL KEER of BLADE AND BLOOD got 12 points for removing 
another young punk.  Tough luck, FEAR FACTORY!  How long have I been here?  I got 
people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Master -- HA HA HA!  YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD GET RID OF ME!  What do you think now?
I'm still here and there is a dead high elf on the sands.  Don't you ever send me to
the dark arena ever again!  As for the High Elf, he should be on the standby team.
He's not worthy of the dark arena. -- Xander Haxan

battle axe, very high, very low, use slash, learn parry.  Lion Hearted should make a
good Duelmaster if he sticks around. -- Shivaree Sjden

Laelkorissa -- You don't teach as well as your teammates.  I am disappointed.  Or is
it you just don't want to teach me any skills. -- Mikai Abados

Kung-Fu Master?  Doesn't anybody LIKE me any more? -- Chillili Ches

Mikai Abados -- Both blades had blood, that should make them happy, yes? --

Noachian -- You know, I don't think Xander Haxan was properly appreciative of the
Dark Arena. -- Jorja

Shivaree Sjden -- Congratulations. -- all the remaining Favorite Guys

         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
     a.  Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns.  However, the same warrior may not
         be used all four turns.  4 turns means 4 separate warriors.  A penalty of

         (this means a warrior with 0 FE).

         tourney reports are posted in the NL.
     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the
         same conditions as noted for TVs.

Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:
     a.  renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena;
     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!

20 October 2006
In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Street Legal
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the
Turf War 5.  Whoever sent this to me...please email me at rbaphomets@yahoo.com.
