                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in JADE 
MOUNTAIN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for LENTIRIA, who flew up 12 points in the rankings after 
mashing HAROLD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was HAROLD, who dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with LENTIRIA.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was DARK TOADS' MORGANNA, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
ALLOCUTION.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad LEGALESE?  Big bad LEGALESE.  Big bad LEGALESE.  JADE MOUNTAIN's afraid of 
the big bad LEGALESE.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  LEGALESE + Weapons That go Boom = DARK TOADS + Avoid City.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of LENTIRIA, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Allocution -- If it is any consolation, I am also a crappy learner. -- Morganna

Judge -- My warriors don't appear to want to fight right now.  Ah well.  Maybe this
is your time to trounce me for a while.  Fair is fair. -- TigToad

Lentiria -- Hey now, share those wins.  For that matter, why didn't I run? -- Harold

Lorana -- Well, as long as I have breath, this arena won't close on us again. --
TigToad

Morganna -- It's a plot, isn't it?  You just WANT me to never have a winning record
again.  That is so...so toadish! -- Lentiria, extra cranky because it's overcast and
she suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder

Virginitiphobia -- How extremely odd your life must be, if that fear governs it. --
Essina tyl Vern, realizing that her own life is not going so badly after all, by
comparison

Pinky of Doom -- You pinked me, you pinkerton! -- Woody
P.S.  Note my deft use of the tactic:  withhold skills.  Not perfect this time, but
considering what I COULD have taught you....

Cyrus -- You toads seem to be all over the place.  Does this indicate a change in the
microclimate?  Are we getting dark and dank here? -- Volto Leeni

Irrelevant -- Totally so.  I'm glad you realize that.  So many don't. -- Tabatan

Allocution and Judge -- True, Jade Mountain is not thriving at the moment, but it's
died before and come back.  Don't leave!  That merely encourages the negative trends.
Be part of the solution (stay) rather than the problem (leaving). -- Lorana and Li
Dan, Sand Dancers

Morganna -- Actually, I think I'll open a teva.  If I can find someone to handle the
business part, I'm no good at that. -- Woody

Judge -- My name is either the second or third anagram on Vinteeloa, in whose
replacement line I stand (and sometimes fall). -- Volto Leeni

10 January 2004
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.
