                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
VALAMANTIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MASTERS OF RAGE, 
since SINFUL SISTER took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this 
keeps up, RIO VISTANS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 
in the rankings?  SINFUL SISTER turned their 2-2-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's 
all watch EOD's heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, 
big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CHIA EDEL win a 
fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CHIA EDEL beat T.R. and T.R. lost 19 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, VALAMANTIS 
may be getting bland, as JEFFRO stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
VALAMANTIS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  GRIM OBITUARY the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this 
mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was RIO VISTANS.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, GLAL was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  RANDOM SITH has cause to pause today, as DARTH 
PLAGWEIS was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, 
I'll wager.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in VALAMANTIS to get a drink than The Wasteland 
Bar!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
VALAMANTIS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Seraphim -- I can't take all the credit for the influx of teams in here.  Pauly,
Indimar, and The Iron Council have an awful lot to do with there being this many
teams in here.  I still have a couple more on the way and two of my friends are
currently inactive, so we should have even more here soon. -- Valamond

Indimar -- What is this fall from the top you speak of?  I don't think a 4-0 turn is
going to cause me to fall anywhere.  Speaking of falling though, you ended up quite a
bit below me this time around...both of my teams!  HA HA!!! -- Valamond

Pauly -- Nah nah nah nah nah!!! -- Valamond

Aerobed -- You really should know better than that!  You're lucky I only hit you with
a tree...I could have used a Halberd! -- Bertha

Hombre and Elephant -- Welcome back to Valamantis!  But one question...who is running
which team(s)? -- Valamond, still a bit overwhelmed by all the new arrivals

Nick -- Val Jr, Xavier, and Bertha are beating up on your fighters again.  All is
right in the world. -- Valamond

Ghoti -- Nice job on Squints!  I am still cracking up about the whole parried to
death thing! -- Valamond

All -- My global journey is nearing its end, and I may actually be able to fight five
warriors per team and issue some challenges soon.  So much for me having top team.  I
tend to shoot myself in the foot with my strat tinkering. -- Valamond

Valamond -- Yeah, a rough turn to say the least, but at least I'll be well
represented in the Tourney of the Dead. -- Pauly

Martavius -- Yes.  And I haven't given up yet. -- Chuck

Ghoti -- There really wasn't any consideration put into Jeffro.  He wins more than he
loses so I've kept him around.  Although, I am definitely more than ready for him to
graduate so I can put his 50lb folder into storage. -- Pauly
P.S.  I thought it was pretty funny how we both basically said the same thing about
the Squints situation.

Indimar -- Hey, what's so crazy about me beating one of Hombre's warriors?  I'm a
force to be reckoned, er, slightly annoyed by. -- Pauly

Middle Way -- You seemed to enjoy T.R.'s name so much, I had to throw out another
one. -- Pauly

When I start losing to Pauly it is time to take a little time off to regroup.  See ya
next turn. -- Indimar

Nuln -- I am counting on you to keep things zesty this turn. -- Indy

Valamond -- Keep beatin' that welcome wagon drum.  This place is going to be hopping
soon. -- Indimar

Aerobed -- I assume your name refers to some kind of sleeping surface, but I am
puzzled by the reference to "tv."  It was not, after all, a tv challenge, and even if
it was, how could either you or I sleep on it? -- Dana Friss
P.S.  Assuming this was necessary.

Ares -- You're a legend in your own time?  Great!  Tell me all about it.  I've never
had a chance to talk to a real legend. -- Finilla Hars

Bertha -- (heavy sigh)  Yep, you've mastered your rage and made it work for you
rather than against you.  Damn. -- Chia Edel

Xavier -- I hate those "incredible blows."  They HURT.  Try not to do that to me
again, okay?  Just tap me a couple of times, and I'll surrender.  I promise. -- Erfin
Goram, feeling wimpy
P.S.  Actually, with a Courage of thirteen, I'm NOT wimpy, but this is a bad day,
okay?

Valamond Jr. -- (plaintively)  Do you know how hard it is to get that sand out of my
hair? -- Bali Darras
P.S.  And the arenamistress laughed.  Just adding insult to injury, that was.

The Saint -- That's the way it goes with tech support.  Either no help, or way too
much.  Hope you're back up now. -- Nick

     No, and I'm going to go back to my old system for the duration, I think.  That
     means some catching up to do, but what else is new.  *sigh* -- The Saint

Xavier -- (raised eyebrow)  You're delusional.  You might want to have that checked.
-- Bali Darras

Pauly -- Too bad, but that three con will do it every time. -- Nick

Valamond -- Thanks for the info.  So any other "vala's" in your life I should know
about?  Maybe a dog named Valamania? -- Nuln

Ganol...us -- Damn, you've gone all mega on us.  Now you're just pimping out 62 for
your precious tourney warriors.  I thought I knew you, man. -- just Nuln
P.S.  I was kinda with Ed. on the toast topping (kinda like a pop-tart thing), but
why you're so obsessed with STD's, I have no idea. ;)

Ghoti & Jae -- No worries, my friends.  Bash Tactic Rocks, though a valued member of
the community and a fine upstanding citizen, was just a wannabe basher.  I'd tell you
his stats, but I've already thrown him away! -- Nuln

Zestivo/Indimar -- I am glad that you are a friend to the Basher cause.  There are
many who would see us fail, and mock us while doing so. -- Nuln

Nick -- I'll see what trouble I can stir, but I don't think these'll make it time for
this turn. -- Nuln

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

14 September 2006
     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.
