                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  EVIL DEATH DUDES now holds the crown and they are betting they can 
keep it.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at 
MIDDLE WAY 10, who went down to 7th from 11th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a 
solid 1-2-0 outing, SINFUL SISTER has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  RANDOM SITH 
is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 5th place to 4th place.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for T.R., who flew up 27 points in the rankings after mashing 
CHIA EDEL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was CHUCK, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with BERTHA.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge 
me'!  EURO SHARK made a TV challenge against JEFFRO this week.  It's a proud day for 
the RIO VISTANS stable, as their warrior, JEFFRO, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid EVIL DEATH DUDES, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does VALAMANTIS really have that many liars?  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  EVIL DEATH DUDES + Weapons That go Boom = RIO VISTANS + Avoid 
City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of VALAMOND JR., who was this week's 
most challenged warrior.  Challenging down 25 points was DARTH TIMMY.  Pretty soon 
he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  
Definition of petty:  DARTH TIMMY put to death VALAMOND JR., a mismatch of 25 points. 
EVIL WEEVIL of EVIL DEATH DUDES had better have a good reason for challenging down 11 
points in a challenge which she won.  I thought EVIL WEEVIL showed great skill and 
promise when she beat BUZZ.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  I have no doubt that EVIL DEATH DUDES will 
be celebrating long and loud their warrior DARTH TIMMY's slaying of VALAMOND JR. on 
the sands.  For those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed CHIA EDEL by the 
ear and took her away to a place where she won't need a coat.  Carrion Bird Heaven:  
VALAMOND JR. was killed by DARTH TIMMY (The true definition of 'Street Pizza').  
Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and 
see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the VALAMANTIS 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

Indimar -- Hmm, I'm at a loss for words regarding the events of the last two turns.
Some advice though.  You should remember who's going to be taking care of you when
you get old.  Well, even older. -- Pauly
P.S.  I did say 5 times out of 10.

M.W. (Middle Way) -- I think I'm going to abbreviate your names from now on.  The
same goes for A.A.B.  They all have really long names too. -- Pauly

E.G. -- You had me at "hunt gators". -- Chuck

Smiter -- I think you should add "of Colors" to the end of your name. -- Pauly
P.S.  I knew Yellow was in trouble when I heard you listening to "Paint It Black"
before the fight.

All -- Well, here's the goods on Jeffro.  He was gonna tell you, but he's still
recovering from the massive head trauma he received at the hands, or more accurately,
by the maul of Darth Timmy.  11(1)-21(4)-12-5-21-8-11, Ad Ex +3 in parry.  Favs are
low, very low, learns parry, and uses the responsiveness tactic well( is that a good
tactic for a scum?)  Oh, I forgot about the weapon.  Epee.  If there's a better
weapon for a scum, I don't know what it is.  Jeffro competed in one tournament about
four years ago.  It was a FtF, and he was proxied by Hombre.  He went 2-3, but all 4
of his con trains came in those fights.  I thought that was impressive.  I have a
feeling Jeffro will be facing Euro Shark, but if not him, anyone who gets a challenge
through will be in for a surprise.  Jeffro, if challenged, will be running hot,
wearing no armor, and using an epee.  I've heard that you are automatically well
suited to your favorite weapon when you're in AD.  I'm hoping it's once you get your
invite, or Jeffro might have some trouble using the epee. -- Pauly
P.S.  I'm not really expecting him to win doing this, just hoping to get lucky and
knock Indimar down a peg or two.

Chuck -- Apology *not* accepted.  You will die for that "joke." -- Z.M.E., liking his
rap-star initials

Jeffro -- If I (or anyone else for that matter) had taught you 16 riposte skills in
one turn, I would have had to kill you.  That is, if it is possible to kill someone
with that many newly acquired riposte skills. -- G.W.C., whose initials, sadly, are
reminiscent to a chain of supplement stores

All -- If it appears as if the solutions to all my warriors' problems is death,
appearances would be accurate.  Don't worry, they're all enrolled in beginners' clay
class starting next week. -- Nuln

A.T. Jr. -- Managing out of a paper bag can be very, very difficult, and perhaps
something a warrior such as yourself wouldn't understand.  For instance, some bags
are made of very tough fibres.  That's one point.  <dramatic pause>  In addition, the
openings to said bags are much smaller these days than back when you were a kid
carrying your lunch in one. -- Nuln, defender of bag-managers across Alastari and
beyond

     Yes, but do they contain peanut butter sandwiches? -- Ed.

Darth Nikilus -- Bad santa.  Bad, bad santa. -- Morning Star Glory

Pauly -- Just fyi, when you told Indy you were going to open an entire "bag of fury"
on him, I was like "whoah." -- Nuln
P.S.  I may have even said it twice.

Evil Death Dudes -- I have heard rumors from the urchins and courtesans around town
that you carry a mystical thing with you, rumored to be called "zest."  Is this true?
-- Nuln

Bali Darras -- You know the drill, one buck when you get a chance. -- You Owe Me One
Dollar
P.S.  My teammate GWC will gladly accept your invitation to pay for his dinner.  You
are too kind, he says.

Soultaker -- Do I have to call you off the porch in *two* arenas?  Oh dear lords....
-- Nuln, losing his patience

Indimar -- Perhaps instead of stirring the pot we should tip it over? -- Nuln

You Owe Me 1 Dollar -- The trouble with names like that, is that they do a flip-flop
on you when someone says 'em.  I write it down there, and what it comes out as is,
YOU owe ME one dollar, and I'll take it NOW, thanks. -- Bali Darras
P.S.  With interest.

Darth Sidius -- Too random, I think.  Of course, you dwarves aren't really GOOD at
random.  It takes an elf for that, you know.  Even humans can't really do random.
Chaotic, yes, but that isn't the same thing. -- Chia Edel

Martavius -- (panting heavily)  You gave me a workout!  (wiping sweat from his face)
How about next time we match up, we use whiffle bats or something instead of these
darned heavy swords?  I think I probably sprained my wrist, and I notice you were
sweating buckets, too. -- Erfin Goram

Dominatrix -- That's just LIKE an elf!  Pushy, bossy, know-it-alls.  And I can tell
by what you kept hitting that you were JEALOUS, still ARE jealous, of my MUCH better
figure.  You elves are too skinny. -- Gabrella Imbro

Swivel Sweeper -- Er, ah.  Not enough swivels to sweep to keep you in beans?
Although (frown) the swivel might be YOU, I mean, the way you kept your hips going...
I have never seen a guy do that.  It's...it takes me aback, is what it does. -- Fronk
Hurrace

Congratulations to Euro Shark and Jeffro. -- Middle Way

Oh, no!  Aerobed is DEAD?  What will I do for bedshirts now? -- Erfin Goram

Morning Star Glory -- Sure. -- Gabrella Imbro

NEED A TURF WAR ALLIANCE??  Master Beru, Wretch, Reaper, and Xoan have come together
to form an Alliance for the TURF WAR in DM47 with no regards for experience in
competitions or even the game.  If you want to enjoy the thrills of the competition,
we have space for up to three more managers.  Contact Master Beru at
d_spinella@msn.com for more information or send a note to Master Beru at DM 29--Army
of Darkness.  If you are interested, we need to move quickly, since the contest
starts in January and there are a few requirements to meet to participate.  May your
blades find the chinks in your enemy's armor. -- Master Beru

ANNOUNCING THE NO-TOURNAMENT ARENA (81)

As an American I honor my cultural heritage by stealing any good idea.  This idea was
originally proposed by Lord Xiang in November 2005.  RSI will be opening the arena
(81) for teams willing to sign the following pledge:

*  I pledge that I will not send warriors from this arena to a Tournament, nor will I
   use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this arena.
*  I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
   preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
*  I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
*  I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.
*  I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to
   the Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena
1.  No tournament play for warriors in this arena (Dead tournament or otherwise).
2.  One team per manager.
3.  Teams start with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena.
5.  Twenty teams required, per RSI.
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI

    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead).
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

The main purpose of the Player Committee is to maintain fair play in the arena:
*  Warriors that participate in Tournaments will be sent to the Dark Arena until they
   are dead.  This means that the Player Committee has the power to send another
   player's warrior to the Dark Arena
*  Managers that abuse the rules of the Arena may be banned/transferred from the
   Arena.

The player with the most votes for Chairman will fill slot 1 [Chairperson] and that
term expires end of March 2007.
The player with the most votes overall will fill slot 5 and that term expires end of
November 2007.
The player with the second most votes overall will fill slot 4 and that term expires
end of September 2007.
The player with the third most votes overall will fill slot 3 and that term expires
end of November 2007.
The player with the fourth most votes overall will fill slot 2 and that term expires
end of May 2007.

During the month that the chairperson's term expires the Player Committee will select
one of the remaining 4 players to be the next chairperson.  During the month that any
member's term expires the arena will vote for a different player to join the Players'
Committee.

If you want to be a candidate for the player committee:
1.  Post a message in the Duel2 Forum at
    http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Forums
2.  E-Mail Deke at DekeYoung@Comcast.NET
3.  Send a Diplomatic Note to Doc LeGrand's Lab [ARENA 81]

There are 4 steps to joining this arena

rollup sheet, or transfer a ZERO FIGHT EQUIVALENT TEAM to Arena 81 and send RSI the

     RSI will be processing overviews for this arena as soon as you send them into
RSI.
     The first turn will run in January 2007.  This will be a normal speed arena.
     While I am encouraging everyone to use TEAM MAINTENANCE it is not mandatory.
The intent is that players that run turns will run a full team.  One warrior teams
are discouraged and will a topic for the Player Committee to resolve.
     I also encourage players to join the Duel2 Yahoo Group for faster updates and
feedback.  http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/duel/

     I will track Awards in Arena 81, which will be posted on a web site and included
in the following turn's newsletter.

The Honor of Sunset Award:
     The first team to reach 10 Team Kills.  In the case that there is more than one
team that achieves 10 Team Kills on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most kills.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Kills, I will prolong
the contest until one team has the most Kills in the Arena (it does not have to be
one of the teams that first reached 10 Team Kills.)

The Race to Victory Award:
     The first team to reach 75 Team Wins.  In the case that there is more than one
team that reaches 75 Team wins on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the team
with the most wins.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Wins, I will prolong the
contest until one team has the most wins in the Arena (it does not have to be one of
the teams that first reached 75 Team Wins.)

The Commitment to Change Award:
     The first team to reach 125 Team Fights.  In the case that there is more than
one team that reaches 125 Team Fights on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
team with the most fights.  If two or more teams are tied for Team Fights, I will
prolong the contest until one team has the most fights in the Arena (it does not have
to be one of the teams that first reached 125 Team Fights.)  I hope I never give out
this award {figure it out on your own.}

The Team Advancement Award:
     The first team to graduate 5 warriors to ADM.  In the case that there is more
than 1 team that graduates 5 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the
first team to graduate 6 warriors.  In the case that there is more than 1 team that
graduates 6 warriors on the same turn, I will pay the Award to the first team to
graduate 7 warriors, and so on.

The Iron Throne Award:
     The first team to hold the Duelmaster for 10 turns STARTING ON TURN 11.

The Stylemaster Award.
     The first team to hold the Stylemaster Award in 7 different styles, STARTING ON
TURN 11.  If two teams obtain Stylemaster Awards in 7 styles on the same turn, the
goal will be increased to 8 Styles.

Team Recognition Points:  The total recognition points for all warriors in the arena
The Iron Throne Ledger:  We will track who has been the Duelmaster every turn in
     Arena history.
Iron Throne Counter:  The total number of times a team has been the Duelmaster.
Composite Team Stylemaster awards:  The number of times a team has had any of the 10
     Stylemasters.  Having 2 Stylemasters = 2 points that turn.
Challenge win percentage:  How often your warriors win when they challenge.
Challenge Defender rate:  How often your warriors win when they WERE challenged.
Team Invitations:  Number of warriors graduated to ADM.
Team Graduation Rate:  Total team fights/Graduated Warriors.
Team Kill Percentage:  Total of team Kills/Team Fights
Team Death Percentage:  Total of Team Deaths/Team Fights
Team Revenge Rate: Number of Deaths/BloodFeuds Revenged (Note that the Dark Arena
     will be counted as not-revenged.)  You only get credit for one successful
     BloodFeud per death (though I encourage you to BloodFeud all 4 turns.)
Current Win Streaks:  Warriors that have gone the most turns without losing or
     missing a turn.
Team Yahtzee counter:  Number of times a team has gone 5-0 in a turn.
Team Bagel counter:  Number of times a team has fought without a win.
Team Dark Arena counter:  Number of times each team has used the Dark Arena.
The Most Feared (avoided) Team counter:  Number of turns that team was the most
     avoided team.

     We will create a web page just for Arena 81 category leaders.
     Hope to see you there. -- Deke
