                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for JADE MOUNTAIN.  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 2 after going 3-1-1.  Keep it up, SAND DANCERS!  MVP 
award for SERNILLAN?  SAND DANCERS' proud of her after beating BAHNING THE LAWYER and 
getting 13 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  DARQUE got smashed by 
CORINTHIAN, and lost 3 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think DOWD should let SHORT ROCK be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about 
it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of HOGWARTS EXPRESS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are MANAGER MUSINGS? 
HOGWARTS EXPRESS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is SHORT ROCK popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all 
of JADE MOUNTAIN!  He's got a 10-14-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Sernillan -- My Manager says thank you.  He is made for musing. -- Vern

15-0-1.  Be careful, Mountaineers.  Be very, very careful. -- FTF Manager
P.S.  Timings for tournaments are going to stifle recurring 15-0's!  Shucks!

Short Rock -- Soon it will be all yours! -- Dowd

Ulra -- There is only one true religion, and it revives one's heart and soul.
Worship FTF Manager and all will be well. -- Vern

Ulra T'ssar -- O.k., so you are not a slug.  Are you bait? -- Slugbait

Slugbait -- Well, at least you didn't bring all your slugs WITH you into the arena.
That would have been...unpleasant.  I don't LIKE slugs. -- Ulra T'ssar
P.S.  But the liberal application of rock salt in the cellar seems to work as an
anti-bait.  Hmm, I wonder if I should consider that in the arena?  Nah, you're not
actually the slug (are you?), just the bait....

Dowd -- You have NO clothes-sense at ALL.  You're so BLAH to look at. -- Short Rock
P.S.  Er, that's probably why I lost.  I found you so boring that I didn't pay
attention, yes?

Vern -- Yes, okay, but the ferns growing out of your ears are weird. -- Sernillan

And a standby.  Oh, well. -- Donal Pines

The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

Civil War/The Crusades

The next edition of the Civil War series is to be held in Tobir, arena 14, beginning
November 25th with a round where all participating managers must DA all 5 of their
warriors; in addition all warriors must be prefixed with an A an F or a D in the
following manner:  A-Broke Stroker or (A) Broke Stroker.  Names simply beginning with
the letter of your federation will NOT count as properly prefixed!  Existing teams
are welcome but no warrior who survives the DA who had prior Fight Experience (arena
or tourney) will be allowed to score or challenge into the contest teams.  There will
be an equal number of teams set up for each of the three factions (Andorian, Free
Blades, and Delarquan) to create sides as equal as possible.  This along with the DA
round should set up pretty equal footing for all managers.  After the DA there will
be another round where you can either DA again or fight your new, or surviving,
warriors so they will be set up to challenge an opponent beginning on round 1.  So as
a recap DA round, turn 0, then turn 1 it begins with the following rules:

The Civil War to be held in arena 14.
- The contest runs for 10-28 turns (barring ties).
- No tourney participation allowed.  Teams with warriors participating in any
  tournament are disqualified.
- An even number of teams per faction worked out by the Faction Leaders.  No later
  substitutions are allowed.
- If a manager brings in a second team and challenges into the contest he is DQ'd and
  his side will fight one team short!
- Three factions will be participating:  Andorian, Delarquan, Free Blades
- Everyone prefixes their warrior with A-, F-, or D- (No prefix = disqualification of
  the warrior)
- Turn DA:  (The DA Round) November 25, 2006.  Every warrior must DA.  (Warriors not
  DA'd on Turn 0 are disqualified)
- Turn 0:  December 9th, 2006.  There will be no scoring this turn it is meant to
  allow for challenges on turn 1.
- Turn 1+:  Scoring as detailed below
- Each team gets 1 point for defeating a warrior from an opposing team.
- Fights against warriors on your team do not generate points in any situation.
- The team with the most points each turn gets a Battle Point (if there is a tie for
  the most points then no Battle Points are accrued)
- The first team to 10 Battle Points wins the war
- Managers of teams on the winning side each receive a +1 bonus potion to be used on
  a warrior on their contest team.  This must be applied within a month of the
  conclusion of the contest and the team must have been active on the last turn of
  the contest.

Anyone wishing to participate, and feels they can probably stick around for the
duration (don't want to handicap a side, of course unforeseeable events cannot be
planned for), should either diplo me at THE DEATH SQUAD(63) in Tobir (arena 14) or
place a personal ad in the arena.  You may also contact me via the Duel2.com boards!
Let me know which faction you would like to fight for!  This contest is intended to
be open to ALL managers wishing to pit themselves against each other to try and
determine which faction has the best managers! -- Street Legal

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.
