     Well...seems that my hoping Fizban would pick up the slack kinda got thwarted.
So, let me see what I can do to provide a little information worthy of being
reported.
     Tourney results printed this month.  Those that sent warriors already know them.
Those that don't normally fight tourneys (like me) get this anyway.
     Major coupe for Drake and UU DOEWANAKNO...5-2-0 is impressive.  Makes me happy
that I never challenged him!
     Goat can be proud of Justice 'cause it certainly got served.  11-3-1 is nothing
to sneeze at.
     S.N.A.F.U. pulled a T.V. also with a 10-3-0 record.  But, the kinds of awards
Crip has pulled over the years...it's probably gotten old.  But--I wouldn't know as
I've never accomplished this feat.
     I'm also gonna send a kick in the pants to my alliance-mate, Asmo for a snafu of
his own.  Ya gypped my teams on some points, Bubba!  Dog Soldiers I, II and III were
all mentioned in the Spy Report for Turn 132.
     Nastiness of the Month goes out to Master Janos for his attack on Master Darque.
     Well...things were actually kinda dull this turn...but we'll see what transpires
next month.  Until then...remember...it ain't personal...it's just business.

                         Baphomet

      * }%|[-----+O+-----]|%{ * }%|[-----+O+-----]|%{ * }%|[-----+O+-----]|%{ *

     Bud and Cranked were walking by the town merchants.
    "We totally kicked," Bud said.
     "Like it was so darn easy," commented Cranked.
     "I could hardly believe it when I looked around man and saw actual people."
     Cranked stopped, "Who did you expect to see?"
     Bud smiled, "Usually it looks like smoke forms."
     Cranked nodded and started walking again.
     "Dude it is going to be grand to get some," said Bud as they turned the corner
and Bud walked into Baphomet.
     "Whoa, far out," said Cranked.
     "Good job the other day," Baphomet said.
     "No problem man," Bud said shaking Baphomet's hand.  "Did you know we fought the
other day?"
     Cranked shook his head.
     Baphomet started to say something but Bud started up, "Look I went to the arena
and faced this dude and he has a sword, but I had one too so it was kinda far, then
there was this other dude in a big chair man..."  Bud stopped to catch his breath and
Baphomet raised his hand and got a high five from Bud.  "Then this dude he said
something and the guy with the sword swung at men man, it was like he wanted to hurt
me man."
     Baphomet cut in.  "Well I got an appointment with someone.  Um, I'll talk
later."  Baphomet passed the two and turned the corner.
     Cranked and Bud walked the couple of blocks to the pawn shop.  At the door Bud
stopped.  "Hold it."
     Cranked looked around.  "What?"
     Bud pointed behind him.  "That was Baphomet back there."
     Cranked shook his head and walked inside.  After a few minutes Bud went in
calling for Cranked.
     Stoned was sitting at the dining table when Bud came in.  "Where's Cranked?"
     Stoned looked at the empty chairs.  "Do you see him?"
     Bud shook his head.
     "Then what does that tell you?"
     Bud thought for a minute.  "What told me?"
     "That Cranked isn't here," Stoned said.
     Bud shook his head.  "Nobody told me that.  Anyway dude we just came in."  He
looked around.  "I should know 'cause he was with us."
     Stoned sat there with his mouth gaped open.
     Bud walked into the hallway.  "Anyway who are you to tell me what told me that
Cranked isn't here.  I came too and we saw Baphomet and he talked and talked, didn't
make much sense of what he said."
     Suicide walked out of his room when he heard the loud voices from the hallway.
He walked down the hall and stopped when he saw Bud talking to a floor lamp.
     "Then he tells me something about meeting a guy, but we had to go, and I think
he called after us, but I don't remember," Bud said.
     Suicide shook his head and went back to his room.
     "Then when we get to the door I came in after Cranked and for some reason Stoned
says he ain't here.  Like can you believe that?"  Bud took a step closer to the floor
lamp.  "I mean it is like Cranked just up'n disappeared man.  You know what else?"
He looked at the floor lamp.  "It seems that people act a little strange."  Bud
backed up some.  "I know you're speechless but it's true."
     "Yo dude who are you talking to?" Acid asked.
     "This customer who came in," Bud said.
     Acid looked at the floor lamp.  "Are you blind?"  He looked at the floor lamp.
"He really didn't mean to call you a she."  He turned to Acid.  "Did you."
     Acid shook his head slowly.  "I don't have my glasses."
     "See, he can't see straight.  That's the problem."  He tapped the lamp and it
fell over and Bud jumped back.  "Sorry bout that man, I didn't know you were
staggering.  Look give me your hand and let me help you up."
     Acid walked to Bud and pulled him to the wall.  "Look man you have totally
flipped."
     Bud shook his head.  "Man I am smooth, now help me get the guy up before Suicide
some in and wonders what he's doing here, cause actually we have been closed for how
long?"
     "I'll take care of him.  You just go rest."
     Bud nodded.  "Ya I will take that test and pass."
     Acid shook his head and picked up the lamp and placed it back in its corner.
     Bud smiled.  "I remember when a lamp was there."  He looked around.  "Man I
can't remember who bought that ugly thing."
     "Some guy," Acid giggled.  "He came in the other day."
     "That's right," Bud said snapping his fingers.
     "But for your own good lie down and later you'll feel like new."
     "I'm blue, man you smoked more than I had if you say I look blue," Bud said
laughing.
     Acid shook his head.  "Bud seriously go to bed."
     Bud smiled.  "I ain't Ned man.  It's me Bud like the team uh the team."  Bud
rubbed his chine.  "The team."  He looked around.  "The big man ok."
     Acid grabbed Bud's head.  "Bud did you know we repainted the wall?"
     Bud looked at the wall.  "I really did not take notice."
     "Take a better look," Acid said ramming Bud's face into the wall which cracked
the plaster.  Bud fell to the floor.  "Don't worry dude, you'll feel a lot better
tomorrow."  He dragged Bud to his room and laid him in bed and walked out.
     "Maybe you'll remember how to open the door."

     Greetings, fellow managers!  Before I announce the scores for this Turf War's
"Hump Turn", I'd like to mention a few things:
     Drake -- Congrats!  'Specially 'cause the TC was earned by your champ, UU
Doewannakno...That's 200 points for TAFKAMOTO.
     Another champion also scored bonus points for Manics Depressant.  Justice of
Peace Makers TV'd!  That's 20 bonus for them.
     Last but not least, EPA had two TV's:  Punch Drunk of Way To Go! II, and
S.N.A.F.U. of Alphabet Soup.  None of them are champs, but rumor has it that Snafu
thinks he should be one, and Crip may declare him as such in this very newsletter!
Oh, 20 points for EPA!
     Other need mentions....  To those who want inactive teams removed:  I keep all 
the records of my computations on hardcopy, with one page for each manager.  It is
much easier to leave teams on, just for the record.
     Red Raven -- Thanks for the praise!  ;-)
     Dollarbill -- OK, I note your declaration, but Fizban will have to verify before
I put it on the listings.
     I'd also like to offer my condolences to those who lost warriors at the tourney,
specifically those who lost champs (Pyrrha and Pillow).
     Now, on to the scores!

     Well folks, that's all the scores...now I'd like to announce--Turf War 3 will
return to North Fork (DM 47) in about eight months--that should coincide with the end
of Crip's Incomprehensible Contest of Crap....  ;-)  The scoring system will remain
much the same, with a few changes such as points for "Style Masters," graduations,
and other stuff.  There will also be multiple categories to win besides "Best
Alliance"!  I will be charging a single rollup cert per team entering--to supplement
the prize pot!  (Not for my profit; I will still be adding my own donation to the
pot.)
     So, give me your feedback; any ideas are welcome!  Prepare to get a team to DM
47 and defend your honors!  (Here's your chance, Heathen...to add your own prize, I
mean!)  ;-)

                         Bloody sands!
                              Asmo Dius, TCB

Erinika,

Well...my charmed career continues.  I'm sure you won't believe it, but Spawn was
very unsure of me when I first arrived...nearly rejected to the DA very early doors!!
Shows that everyone deserves a chance in this business...just in case!!

I feel a Phamyn is likely to be heading my way, and I'm not bothering to avoid it as
there's honour at stake.  If by some chance it doesn't strike, I'm going shopping for
some sunglasses...that bright light is far too much for my hangovers!!

Until next time,

Punch Drunk

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ERINIKA games.  I have begun to suspect trickery on 
the part of SATAN'S VOMIT.  How else weeks like this one's 5-0-1?  How else the 
sudden move to 1st team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
FEMME FATALE's team record!  A 4-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 5th place 
ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of BILBO'S BUDDIES.  How else 
weeks like this one's 3-2-0?  How else the sudden move to 6th team?  The proverbial 
rising comet can only hope to compare with HORS DE COMBAT's team record!  A 2-3-0 
week and now a firm grasp on a 14th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery 
on the part of FLAMING FIST.  How else weeks like this one's 3-1-0?  How else the 
sudden move to 18th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
BLOOD OF KINGS' team record!  A 3-2-1 week and now a firm grasp on a 20th place 
ranking.  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you 
fall.  This week PERFECTION QUEST II went 1-4-0 and fell 16 notches into 22nd!  I 
have begun to suspect trickery on the part of PEACE MAKERS.  How else weeks like this 
one's 3-2-1?  How else the sudden move to 26th team?  FOUND IN THE SAND bore the 
brunt of major assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 27th position 
as the result of going 0-2-0!  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare 
with EASTERN HORDE's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 30th place 
ranking.  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you 
fall.  This week GARDEN GUMBIES went 1-3-1 and fell 11 notches into 36th!  I have 
begun to suspect trickery on the part of EASTERN HORDE VII.  How else weeks like this 
one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 40th team?  The proverbial rising comet can 
only hope to compare with KIWI CONNECTION's team record!  A 2-0-0 week and now a firm 
grasp on a 43rd place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of DARK 
FORCE RISING.  How else weeks like this one's 1-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 
44th team?  My praise to DRAKE'S LODGE for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, 
it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  BLIND BANANA caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PHAMYNN and was awarded 
32 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GILLES LE BRETON 
put down RED HOT CHILE PAPA, causing him to lose 20 points of recognition in the 
process.  Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster PUNCH DRUNK TV 
challenged SUNGLASSES last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  Not for 
nothing has PUNCH DRUNK in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week it's proven its combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim 
that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons 
perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ERINIKA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  ERINIKA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is ODIN'S CHOSEN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of WORLDWIDE GORE are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after MOE TELSYX.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that GAI-JIN posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized MOONSTONE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand GAI-JIN defeated 
MOONSTONE.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but 
mention with disdain the name of GUNGNIR who this week posted a challenge to a 
warrior a full 9 points below in the rankings.  I thought GUNGNIR showed great skill 
and promise when he defeated KING RAT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!  
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Look no more for KAMIKAZE in the arena or on the streets of 
ERINIKA.  Its fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 17-13-1.  
Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  YUK YUK has the town 
astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape 
the vagaries of this world.  This week arena veteran PHAMYNN was slain, despite a 
7-4-2 record.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen creatures cut down in 
their prime.  This week WAY TO GO! II must mourn the loss of 10-3-1 BANZAI to BLOOD 
OF KINGS.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week KAOLIN, at 6-5-1, departed ERINIKA forever.  Walk 
proud, warriors of SATAN'S VOMIT!  By striking down MILLENNIA you have avenged the 
honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in ERINIKA.  Some say a warrior is 
judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a 
sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ERINIKA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

UU Doewanakno -- Congrats on retaining the throne, getting your invite and not to
forget the little matter of a champions class TC.  Not a bad effort I suppose, not
too shabby at all!!  Can't say I'll be sad to see the back of you, but it was a
pleasure witnessing a master at work.  Luck for the future. -- Spawn

DEA -- HEY!!  No fair, big guy...you're not meant to enjoy beating on me THAT much!!
-- Asphyxiate

The Bhaum -- So, what is a Bhaum??  I dunno, but don't think I like it! -- Hannibal

Dhethe -- Wanna swap ratings??  AND weapons?! -- Banzai

Liberty -- Not sure how I beat you, but it was a pleasure!! -- King Rat

I.O.U. -- Thanks for the skills...consider your debt paid! -- Gai-Jin

Blind Banana -- Honestly, you'd do a lot better if you could see! -- Kamikaze

Woare, RIP -- Hmm, my second kill on a 3 KD...wonder what would happen if I upped it
a little?!  Not looking forward to your colleagues hell bent on avenging your demise,
but ready or not, here I come! -- Punch Drunk

Big Leg Woman -- Sorry, I'm just a looker, but I've always enjoyed looking at a good
set of legs! -- Sunglasses

Drake -- So we both know how to win mismatches. -- Assur

EPA -- Turn 6 was only the second time we haven't extended our lead.  Let's finish
this thing strong and send all of these invaders packing. -- Assurnasirbanipal

CFH -- I'd pick Wit every time.  I thought it was an obvious answer, but perhaps not.
Wit gives ATT, DEC, and INI skills, all critical to the success to a Basher.  I knew
you were playing around, but I like to play, too. -- Assur

Saber -- You think a downchallenge will even phase a Delarquan manager like myself?
If you've been paying attention, I expect the worst downchallenges a manager might
make (and participate in the same, often enough).  You didn't reach Buried Treasure
because I was making my own downchallenge, but I suspect mine was much more offensive
than what you were attempting.  I'm even on Drake's list of managers who really
really need to be downchallenged. -- Assurnasirbanipal

Drake -- Frisbee isn't retiring, but I have decided to only run him sporadically to
avoid, as best as possible, those downchallenges.  A cruel and harsh managerial tool,
holding out warriors, but I don't call myself a Delarquan manager for nothing!
Knowing the way I run, he'll see at most 2 more turns during the Turf War, more
likely 1.  But which 1 or 2? -- Assur

Asmo -- I guess the Valkyries didn't get any points for their spy report mention,
huh?  It figures--Heathen was right about you! -- Huld

All -- Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful!  I stand by my vow to one day sit upon the
throne of Erinika. -- Huld

Heartbreaker -- Thank you. -- Huld

Conspiracy Theory -- The conspiracy is I never get my challenges through any more and
am getting picked off at ease from below by the likes of you!! -- Asphyxiate

Smokering -- That's another fight I just want to forget.... -- Hannibal

Lightning -- Good fight, and thanks for all the skills...very welcome!! -- King Rat

Rehsals -- *ouch!*  ...I felt that...really looks like it hurt!! -- Banzai

Red Hot Chile Papa -- *sigh*  ...Again.  Just not quite enough juice to finish you
off.... -- Gai-Jin

Yankee Doodle -- Fortunately I took some of Gai-Jin's juice before that one...just to
make sure I had enough!! -- Kamikaze

All -- Kamikaze finally gets his invite:  a 18(1)-7-12-18(1)-17-7-7 LU, MA Ini, AE
Att, Def, EX Rip, Dec.  Faves SS, HI/HI, learns Ini, tactic Rip...trying luck in DA
this turn before retirement.  Should probably have been a basher!!  But it's been
fun. -- Spawn

Gungnir -- Good effort...somehow I have an uncanny habit of winning them! -- Punch
Drunk

Cory -- Like you got totally beat.  Sorry bout that.  It was a good fight and you are
a worthy opponent and it was an honor to fight you and I hope we do it again and
maybe next time I might lose and uh well, good show. -- Bud

E.P.A. -- I'm glad you gave up man 'cause I was almost out of grass, I mean gas. --
Cranked

Baphomet -- Heard from a friend of a friend that talks about a different Templer.
Think you know who I mean. -- Suicide

Arwen -- Truly disgusting. -- Prizmatyk

Blue Blood -- You ritzy types are all alike.  You fold up like sissies when it gets a
little dirty. -- Whahl of Phorse

Krun -- The arenamaster just said go.  That means start. (grin) -- Kantryp

Doela -- Hey!  Wait!  I wasn't ready.  Willing and able just not ready. -- Willing
Witch

Acha -- Sorry about the repeat but we need the points and no one else on this team
can beat you. -- Oracle O'Ryan

Azzo -- Boom!  Boom!  Boom!  Heh, heh. -- Mega Mage

Adam Ant -- I'm bad but you're worse.  Tee Hee Hee. -- Arrogant Oracle

Hello Kitty -- Hey.  I thought you were declawed.  Ouch! -- Wimpy Warlock

Adam -- Boy.  Do you have a death wish or something. -- Phamynn
P.S.  At least you've got guts.

Heartbroken -- The gladiator formerly known as Heartbreaker.  How does it feel,
sweetheart? -- Apock

Wanstead -- I feel as if I've been raped. -- Dhethe

Heimdall -- Let me have about six more turns of learns like that and we'll go again.
-- Ayn Thraks

Punch Drunk -- I'm coming, jut as soon as I can shake this pesky brat Adam. --
Phamynn

All -- Look at that.  Me the #1 manager in total point gain.  Cool.  Who would have
guessed it. -- Fizban
P.S.  Eat my dust, Crip.

Fizban -- Heil, Bruder!  It seems we're still holding tough in this war--with six
turns left it's time we stepped it up a notch!  Weiss Macht!! -- Heathen Hatebred

Red Raven -- Good to see you fighting the good fight, Brother.  I hope you'll be able
to stick around for a little while--we're going to win this contest!  Sieg Heil!! --
Heathen

Dollarbill -- Hailsa!  I'm sure the Bro's will be happy to have one of our own on the
team.  May the Gods grant you many successes! -- Heathen Hatebred

Ed. -- I didn't get a single challenge through and none of my personals were printed
for last turn--did I piss someone off or what?  And is it too late to apologize?
Whatever it was I didn't mean it.  Unless of course it was me telling Baphomet what a
coward he is and how sorry his Alliance is, because I meant every word of that! --
Heathen

     Haven't the foggiest about that.  Possibly something got misfiled at the office.
     -- Ed., who doesn't work AT the office, just for it

Bafflement -- I figure right about now you're so discouraged and demoralized that
your so called "Alliance" cannot bust a grape that you're ready to tuck your little
yellow tail between your shaky legs and run as you're accustomed to doing.  At this
point that's probably the best solution for you--you're just not cut out for the
warrior's way of life.  Skullagiggle already realized the error of his ways and Asmo
would have quit by now if he weren't running this contest, so take the hint and beat
feet, punk! -- Heathen Hatebred

Goat -- Did Solomon go home?  I hope so.  I'm five months short of maxing out eight
years, myself. -- Horus One-Eye

Sretsamleud II -- Hey!  1-7-0 is pretty good for the last three turns.  No, I'm not
laughing at you.  Really!  I'm laughing with you. -- Horus One-Eye

Drake -- Uu Doewanakno has left and you're still pullin' in the awards.  Way to go
with top team! -- Horus

Drayson -- Nice duckin' and dodgin' for the win. -- Dyer Mak'er

Vanish -- You ate me up in minute 2. -- Red Snapper

A Pock O'Lips -- Well done. -- Heartbreaker

Sunglasses -- You beat me down, but those four--count 'em--four skills make me happy!
-- Big Leg Woman

Phether Phahl -- You never stood a chance. -- Kashmir

Peralta Trail -- I withstood your flurry and your superior style matchup for the win.
-- Kelly Bundy

Archie O'Garr -- You were mine from the start. -- Kim Basinger

To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would

greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
