                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  AS SEEN ON TV after a sorry 1-2-0 might want to consider abandoning the 
sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as ALL ABOUT BASHERS can 
attest...  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but RIO VISTANS 
will tell you 144-136-10 is nothing to laugh at...  RIO VISTANS had cause to 
celebrate, after CHUCK got 18 points by beating BARBUS JAE.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, CHUCK was winsome, after beating BARBUS JAE and seeing her lose 11 
points.  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as JEFFRO of RIO VISTANS met the 
Duelmaster.  In VALAMANTIS, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, JEFFRO.  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in VALAMANTIS avoid GRIM OBITUARY.  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, AS SEEN ON TV scurried away from GRIM OBITUARY.  Oh, the 
shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  
Whatever it is, ZEUS is the most challenged warrior.  Them's the breaks, EURO SHARK.  
Expecting fair challenges from RIO VISTANS is evidently too much to ask.  BUZZ 
overcame EURO SHARK.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  Word has it T.R. 
suffered a romantic setback.  Note how he challenged ZEUS, 30 points his senior.  Not 
to smear a reputation, but LEGION OF LEGEND must be a little surprised, as ZEUS blew 
it when facing T.R., 30 points below him.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Those who owe BLANK 2 of LEGION OF LEGEND money and had written him off, take 
note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Justice was served as 
JEFFRO fought ALBACORE TUNER in bloodfeud.  Well done, RIO VISTANS!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for VALAMANTIS?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

The Saint -- I run Sinful Sisters, as well as Masters of Rage.  I can also identify
one of our new arrivals in the arena.  He may introduce himself this turn, but I will
do it as well.  The other manager known as Carnage, or Namenlos, runs the new team
Random Sith.  Elephant has also returned to the arena, but I am not sure which team
is his.  It looks like we have a name to attribute to the G.O. comeback.  Maybe we
should have a role call to figure out who else is running newly returning teams. --
Valamond

     Cool, thanks for helping to fill in the blanks.  Now if my database guy would
     just finish so I can actually edit/add/delete records, I'd be all set. -- The
     Saint, who made the mistake of asking for something simple and who is getting
     far more than asked for

Pauly -- Way to go, buddy!  From Duelmaster to death by scum...that's quite an
accomplishment in just a couple turns! -- Valamond

Nuln -- I was a fighter on the first installment of Masters of Rage.  I was named
before this arena name was known to any party involved.  It is just a weird
coincidence.  I met my untimely death in the arena and was resurrected to lead the
team after their first hiatus.  Val Jr. is my son, quite obviously, and has decided
to follow in my footsteps...without the untimely death, of course. -- Valamond

Bali Darras -- You don't remember the screaming part?  I thought it was funny!  I
hung around to laugh at you, but you were too busy screaming your lungs out.  It
still gives me quite a chuckle. -- Xavier

Chuck -- What the heck was that all about?  Did you actually think you could beat me?
-- Martavius

All -- 19 teams?  Wow! -- Valamond

Nulnio -- I'm really just using the Midget warriors for tourneys and what not.  With
all the familiar faces around here lately though, who knows? -- Ganolio (You've made
our names sound like STD's somehow!)

     Nah, think non-dairy toast topping. -- Ed.

Nuln and Thems Crazy Bashers -- Ahhhhh!  The randomness of death.  Your Basher was
unprepared for the match.  She even used the wrong kind of weapon. -- Ghoti and
Barbus Jae bow heads in sorrow

Pauly -- I think you need to reconsider Jeffro.  He just...well did not look good out
there again.  Even when he beats on poor ole Albacore Tuner, he just seems...
frustrated.  Maybe he should pay a visit to the red light district. -- Ghoti

Jefforooo -- (tee he)  So nice of you to stand there and take it like a gentleman.
(tee hee) -- Holly Mackeral

Pauly and the Dead Squints -- You cannot blame that one on Albacore.  For the record
everyone, Squints punched himself out after breaking a weapon and died in the
infirmary.  Ya gotta find SOME humor in that!  To top it all off Squints' popularity
GREATLY increased.  You gotta love a crowd that likes to watch a suicide. -- Ghoti

Pauly -- HEY I got this idea.  Your team can be the most popular and greatest show in
all of Alastari.  I will go bury a longsword in the arena sand with the point up and
your team can take turns doing belly flops on it.  Think of the notoriety! -- Ghoti

Squints -- Sorry Honey, (frowning actually) I don't think you are ever going to get
another shot at me. -- Holly Mackeral

All -- Everyone get ready to laugh at my expense.  I know Ghoti already is.  Squints,
in a fight against a scum TP, broke his weapon and apparently was "too hotly engaged
to pull his backup weapon", against an opponent who is just standing there.  Squints
then proceeded to throw a few punches.  The two punches he threw were parried by a
medium shield doing enough damage to beat him.  The final line of the fight however
was, "Squints is rushed to the infirmary where the doctors sadly pronounce him DEAD."
Squints:  12-3-16-21-15-6-11 Ad Ex in Init, Att, and Dec.  Not a terribly impressive
record or ratings but still a bummer.  It's hard to think a guy can get killed by
being "struck on the left arm" twice by a medium shield.  I guess his arm broke and
got so infected that he died before he got to the infirmary.  Oh well, at least I got
a pretty good replacement. -- Pauly
P.S.  If I sound like I'm whining, it's because I am.  I'll get over it by next turn,
I promise.

Ghoti -- You had to be grinning from ear to ear when you read that fight.  I don't
know what frustrated me more; having my warrior killed like that or the fact that I
lost to you again, which, if my calculations are correct, brings my record against
you to 0-1,000,000.  Damn you!  (shaking my fist menacingly):P -- Pauly the deflated
P.S.  Instead of our warriors fighting, maybe you should kick me in the nuts every
two weeks.  It would save time and money.

Elephant -- Welcome back. -- Pauly

Blue Butterfly -- Recognize son. -- Buzz
P.S.  You'd think you would have taught me more.

Alright, I'm over it.  See, I told you. -- Pauly

All -- Sorry for the lack of ads lately, I've been doing a lot of overseas trips and
have been on partial maintenance mostly.  Will find a way to travel and send in ads
at the same time someday I hope. -- Seraphim

To those who've snuck in while I was pre-occupied -- WELCOME. -- Seraphim

Wow population explosion; did we start a contest or something? -- Seraphim

Easy Tweeze -- I've always said why tweeze when you can wax. -- Zues

Valamond -- You said you were going to invite some friends, but who knew you had so
many.  Nice. -- Seraphim

Nuln -- Yes, Pauly can be quite humorous...but looks aren't everything.  You are also
correct about the potential for zestiness here in Valamantis.  You know I'm all about
zesty...and bashers...but mostly zesty. -- Indimar "Zestivo" Fallon

Valamond -- The thing about being on top is that it's a lot harder landing when you
fall.  About Valamond Jr...does that mean you're your own daddy? -- Indimar

Bertha -- You're the one that asked if your new pants made your butt look big, then
you get mad and hit me with a tree when I give you an honest answer.  Not cool, babe,
not cool at all. -- Aerobed

To the "secret" manager of Grim Obituary -- I tried to help you out with a new ghost

for your haunted guild house, but Jagged Shiv folded after one hit.  Maybe next time
or the time after that.  I am willing to go that extra mile to help you with your
haunting. -- Euro Shark

Hombre -- Losing to Pauly?  How far the mighty have fallen. -- Indy

Elephant -- Do you think we should open another Scrodbucks here in Valamantis?  HEY!
Wait a minute, if I'm here...and you're here...who's watching the store in Aradi? --
I.F.

Ganolus -- Am I glad to see you here?  Does a druid...you know...in the woods? --
Indimar "tree hugger" Fallon

Zeus -- I graduated a pair of fighters that used your style from this very arena.
Funny, I enjoyed watching them kick butt, when you do it I just find it annoying. --
Indimar

Great Weapon Choice -- Indeed, yes, and that's one of them, isn't it?  You handle it
well, considering. -- Chia Edel

Snow Conez -- Oh, ugh.  If I'm going to have something like that, I want the REAL
THING.  Ice CREAM.  Snow is fine on the ground, in moderate quantities, sure, but it
isn't FOOD. -- Bali Darras, Advocate of Real Food

Jay Cobbler -- So...is "graphic violence" a case of really bad handwriting? --
Finilla Hars
P.S.  Or maybe throwing the pencils around?  Dangerous things, pencils.  If you
practice, you can throw 'em just like darts.  And when they're very well sharpened,
well!  Graphite violence and no mistake!
P.P.S.  I would expect an orc such as yourself to be involved in graphic violence.
It just FIGURES.

Huh, the Captured Orc is actually an elf.  No wonder he doesn't engage in graphic
violence (we like that team name, did you guess?), because he's got a major identity
crisis to worry about. -- Dana Friss

Wow, I defeated the Dangerous Criminal!  Now that is a victory to cherish.  A bad
guy, the Dangerous Criminal. -- Erfin Goram

Necrosis -- I commend you on your "way" with the youth of this city.  You got more
politeness out of them than anyone else has in years! -- Nick, the Middle Way

Great Weapon Choice -- Come on by the guildhouse--to the back of the east wing,
mind--and I'll friss you a good one, sword-sister.  You'll love it. -- Dana Friss

Nuln -- Any time!  Keep writing your own and we may up the wattage. -- Nick, the
Middle Way

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can

easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

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
