                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt AMEN-TEI will ever be the same.  And let's see, SELAUNAH fought DEEVINE and 
gained 26 points and contributed to WAYFARERS' 2-3-0.  DEEVINE has lost to SELAUNAH, 
falling 17 points, while helping make SAFE HAVEN a 3-1-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and MARIO ANDRETTI remains AMEN-TEI's top 
warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  HEART OF DARKNESS II has cause to 
stand tall, as they were AMEN-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is 
a team to beat.  And guess who avoided HEART OF DARKNESS II stable the most?  Believe 
it or not, it was THE FORSAKEN.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that THE N-ICEMAN from WAYFARERS was AMEN-TEI's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in AMEN-TEI and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Tindel -- How odd.  That isn't the result I more than half expected.  Especially
considering how it STARTED. -- Hobo Jo
P.S.  And it just seems...improbable for me to parry YOUR weapon with MINE.

Deevine -- Is it a golem thing, the way your hair never gets messed up in the heat of
battle, and your manicure is always perfect?  Because if it's just having a really
good hairdresser, that's one thing and I can do it, too, but if it's the golem thing,
no.  I don't really WANT to be a golem, you know? -- Selaunah
P.S.  Not even for perfect hair.

I hate fighting the Virginal Concubine.  I mean, it's so WEIRD.  I'd say that "elves
are so weird," but heck, I'm an elf myself, so it isn't that.  But here's this guy in
eye shadow and lipstick and rouge, with, I will admit, really great hair, and while
we're waiting at the gate for our fight to be called, he starts telling me about how
he's virginal because the Queen of Elfland (where's THAT?) has so MANY concubines
that she just never seems to get to him....  Well, it's enough to put ANYONE off
their stroke. -- Passer By

Did you know that this city has the worst group of jaywalkers anywhere in Andoria?
Really mean, and totally dedicated to their dangerous habit of jaywalking. -- Shady
Lady
P.S.  And the jays aren't all that nice, either.  Noisy birds.

Gods!  What the Friendly Constable tried to DO to me!  Somebody should lock this guy
UP, and I don't mean maybe. -- The N-Iceman

Selaunah -- I'm not paid to be kind. -- Krego Dehann, just your average Veteran
Mercenary

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.
