                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to CHAVEZ RAVINE once again!  Woof!  VUELTA PELETON were a bunch of 
dogs after FAULTY PREMISES got through with 'em!  5th ain't so sweet as 1st!  Hmmmph! 
I always thought SUPERIOR FORCES ZC was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 
0-0-0!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  FORCE OF FIVE is now ranked 8th with a 4-1-0 turn.  Some people 
say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  
Well ROOT OF ALL EVIL moved up 3, to 7th.  What's with JAH RULE?  He actually beat 
1988 DODGERS' TIM LEARY, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at 1988 DODGERS.  KIRK GIBSON lost 23 points to MADAME U-TANA.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KIRK GIBSON will provide more easy wins...  Try as he 
might, PELAK TEN ZORN wasn't good enough at persuading JAY HOWELL to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on? 
I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, 
STORMTROOPERS!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at ROOT OF ALL EVIL ain't 
reelin'!  STORMTROOPERS' mad!  What do people see in CLONE MISHAP?  His 10-10-0?  
FAULTY PREMISES ain't talkin', but he's got 110 points.   
     Warriors of CHAVEZ RAVINE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long 
have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
CHAVEZ RAVINE is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

ZalCon2 Updates (1/9/04)

     The contest will be starting on the turn due February 23rd, 2004 and run for 20
turns.
     Only one team will be allowed for each manager in the contest, regardless of
whether additional teams are announced as contest entries.  No exceptions for any
reason.
     The Style Master points should read that there is +1 point for beating a member
of your own style even if the warrior is not registered for the contest.
     Rolling points for consecutive turns as Style Master means that your warrior
gets the extra point every turn after the first 3 that he continues to hold the
title.
     The points for Quality Wins should be clarified to read the winning warrior is
ranked below by the number of recognition points needed for each bonus point at the
start of the fight.  For example, Warrior A (3-2-0, 17) beats Warrior B (4-1-0, 35)
and receives 2 bonus points under Quality Win for the 18 point difference in the
ranking.
     I believe that is all the clarifications for the moment, please feel free to
email, diplo, call or write me with any other questions or concerns about the
contest.

                                    CHAOTIC WINDS
     Once, long ago, the four Winds of Time descended upon Alastari like a TEMPEST of
epic proportions, they slew everything within their all-encompassing reach.  They
left nothing.  In their wake lay smoldering ruins.
     In their haste they sped towards the center of this great land like a colossal
giant would step across an ocean.  The four storms picked up momentum on their way
towards each other.  A collision was eminent.
     The first storm wind, the oldest and wisest of the four was named APEXALUS.  The
second, FLAGGSTAFF, was the quickest and loudest entity ever created.  The third Wind
of Time was MATRIATIN, neither old or young, quick or slow, but fierce and feisty all
the same.  The forth wind, ASSAMITHIUS, the youngest yet most creative in its means
of destruction.
     When finally they merged at the center of ALASTARI, an incredible destructive
explosion occurred.  And when the smoke and debris cleared they were one.  CHAOS was
born.
     And Chaos spread across the diminished lands reeking havoc and doom with its
passing, and destroying allover again that which already lay in ruin.
