All reasonable and backed rumors will be included until refuted. Such rumors will be marked with question marks. All other repertoires have been supported by multiple and/or very reliable sources. The Official Unofficial 1997 DCI Repertoire List is updated on a rather inconsistent basis and posted to RAMD and sCORPSboard.
