                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KYR'TERR this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as OUTCASTS is pushed out of top team by THE MUSKETEERS, who came from 
2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  SUPERIOR FORCES ZC stable has parlayed this turn's 0-0-0 
into a 7 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 7th place.  Good work, 
guys!  And let's see, EROS fought ZOMBIE-4 and gained 19 points and contributed to 
THE MUSKETEERS' 3-2-0.  ZOMBIE-4 has lost to EROS, falling 5 points, while helping 
make OUTCASTS a 1-4-0 turn.  We should ask DOMINION about the thrill of victory, and 
what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, 
is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade 
uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the OUTCASTS stable was the most avoided 
team this turn.  Come on KYR'TERR, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding OUTCASTS 
more than any other team we find THE MUSKETEERS.  KYR'TERR, are we going to accept, 
or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that MESSY MONGREL 
from DOGS OF WAR was KYR'TERR's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that KYR'TERR has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in KYR'TERR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

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:

     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
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     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
