                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out NIATOLI ISLAND 
to see what's new.  Too bad, FORCE OF FIVE, but OBSIDIAN HALL was just too good to be 
stopped.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but BIG LAKE BANDITS 
really goofed with their 1-4-0.  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved 
up 3 after going 3-1-0.  Keep it up, DEMONSPAWN!  MVP award for ABADDON?  THE DEMONIC 
PICKLES' proud of him after beating FATSO and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  ZAEBOS' match with FRUIT CAKE cost him a loss of 19 points!  Oh, wow, 
like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all NIATOLI ISLAND.  He got the 
most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just 
cause he's Number One!  LACY knows this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  And 
I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome LACY. 
Aren't DEMONSPAWN proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said NIATOLI ISLAND's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Don't Drop Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  BIG LAKE BANDITS was NIATOLI ISLAND's most avoided 
team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what FORCE OF FIVE's been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from BIG LAKE BANDITS, that's fer 
sher.  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think SELF LOATHING feels about 
being challenged by SLUDGE OOZE, 27 points above him?  I was sorry to see such an 
unfair "fight" in NIATOLI ISLAND.  SLUDGE OOZE got 6 points after beating SELF 
LOATHING, 27 points below him.  I'm not so sure CREEPING DEATH knew all the facts 
when it challenged HERE AGAIN of SLORBUST.  I saw CREEPING DEATH stumbling and 
dribbling at The Don't Drop Inn last week...  What did CREEPING DEATH expect, anyway! 
Of course HERE AGAIN won.  Next time stick to people you have a chance against, 
dummy!  AH TOE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged STOMPP.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought AH TOE showed great skill and promise when he won victory over STOMPP.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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 a bummer!  MUHAMMAD got wasted by 
HIJACKED RADIO!  But with a 4-6-1, I guess THE APOSTLES aren't too bummed.  Like was 
that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (EVICTION vs. GREASY BETTY, that is.) 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 gotta leave.  NIATOLI ISLAND is like such a dump, and you guys smell too 
much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Vicious Delite -- Welcome, join the ranks of the insane. -- He Be GBs

Arene Scribe -- This ad is my way of signing the petition to change the arena name

for help before writing something that makes you sound uneducated. -- GB

Here Again

Poor Den, lost in his own lies---You will be below 50% not me, you pitiable glib twit 
with a cactus for a family tree.  Stop telling everybody that you think you're clever, 
lowbrow. Your mind is like your underwear; dirty, full of holes and you should stop 
showing it off.  You calling somebody else hateful is painfully embarrassing (for 
those of us capable of empathy, not probable serial killers like you) and shows your 
lack of culture, except for the bacteria you picked up from the twink hooker that only 
Crambus is supposed to know about (Sorry Flying Monkey Crambus I can't keep that one a 
secret). ---- Womanta Womanta Womanta Wo!

Stik -- Great to see you here. --- Manta

Chad -- Crow for your dinner.  You challenged me, dingdong. -- Fatso

Katarina -- Nightmare! -- Your(e)dum Flying Monkey Cr

The following two ads were supposed to run last turn when I arrived.  Here they are:

All -- I have arrived in Niatoli with a new team of miscreants, Vicious Delite!  
Normally I only fight in Sunset, and though I have zero to prove to anybody in this 
game, a certain loudmouthed overconfident manager here made an offer too tempting to 
refuse.  So, I will be running here for the next year, and when that year is finished 
and I emerge with a winning record, I will be playing for another year, plus tourneys, 
on his dime!  Unless a financial, family or other RL hardship occurs, I will not quit.  
I will not puss out halfway through because I may be a few fights under .500.  No 
doubt there will be winning turns and losing turns, but I am confident in this team 
and my skills.  I have 15 fights total I can miss, and those will likely be used for 
tourney timing if they get used at all.  I have nothing against any managers here 
aside from den, and look forward to crossing blades with you all.  If anybody wants to 
share scouting info just PM me on the forums.  I am Delarq and will challenge up, 
down, and sideways (based more on FE than rec points), but I will save most down 
challenges for the AA as they will no doubt be doing the same thing to me in a 
desperate attempt to save what remains of den's tattered reputation and his wallet.  
See you all on the sands! -- Stik and Vicious Delite

den -- I am here.  You foolishly threw down the gauntlet, and now I have come to pick 
it up.  I have an addendum to the offer, if you choose to take it.  After I win, I'll 
give you a choice.  Instead of paying for me to play here for the following year, you 
can choose to leave either Sunset or Niatoli, your choice, for exactly one year (or 
more, don't worry, nobody will miss you).  No play, no ads, no team spotlights, 
nothing.  And you won't have to pay me a freaking dime to continue playing here.  Your 
choice.  You can think on that for the next year, no pressure.  So here we go.  Come 
get some... -- Stik

Stik -- Welcome to Niytyole Island!  The most dastardly arena in Alastari.  Do respect 
the residents here for they have no respect for you.  Your failures will be mocked.  
Your cries for fair play will be met with laughter.  The never ending challenges will 
be cruel and without remorse.  So rest well, Stik, enjoy your moment of arrival.  Do 
have your warriors see the sights and enjoy the pleasures of the island as you will 
notice fewer of them returning to your stable with each passing cycle.  As victory 
eludes you and your own despondency sets in, remember this:  We've been waiting for 
you. -- Weirdo, mgr. Flirt with Dirt

Stik -- I just put a new team in Sunset.  I'll be running some of the guys in the MI 
so you should see me active there sometime after that for tourney timing. -- Mannequin

Den -- I'm sure a lot of things have caused pain in your rump (most of them self-
inflicted).  I'll do my best to stay afloat in the rankings just so you know where to 
find me. -- Mannequin

Golden Beard -- I thought you were a Dwarf.  I see you described yourself as a Half-
Elf.  Maybe you were a Dwelf?  I guess it doesn't matter now that you're dead.  -- 
Runnik

Scone Golem -- I knew I should have ordered a muffin. -- Tull

Den -- Don't forget to mention my 4-0 turn in your ads -- Spirit

Here Again -- Gone tomorrow. -- Lil Denny

Dog Got The Turkey -- You may have gotten the turkey but I got the win. -- AAgrivator

Slate -- Thanks for the win! - Loki

Self Loathing -- Good fight!  Honestly!  Stop hating on yourself. -- Lacy

Chad -- You don't like my scum being on top of the arena? These scum pay the bills! -- 
Spirit

Consortium the Creeper -- Your elastic waistband must be getting too tight, time to 
switch up to another level of elasticity.  There are no rumors of Manaqueen joining 
the illustrious AA.  He well knows what is required to be considered a candidate, he 
has requested inclusion several times over the years but has been unable to complete 
the difficult application. -- Den

Womanta -- Dude, I would seek the help of another psychologist if I were you.  The 
sessions and the drugs they are giving you are not helping, you are borderline 
delusional and your frothy mouthed diatribe has everyone that I talked to in tears.  
You are a raving lunatic and a joke, and that came from outside the Allied Axis, we 
are not that harsh as you well know.  I'm a liar?  Well maybe, but I guess you have 
lied in the PA's as well, so from one liar to another, be careful where you throw your 
stones, liar.  I'm a cheater?  Really?  You're still rocking that concept (along with 
your double-denim) huh?  If I'm a cheater for entering incorrect styles in TB, then I 
stand as a cheater among over a dozen other managers.  Not really sure what TB has to 
do with the game at all, but in your deranged mental state I don't have any hope of 
you understanding even a shred of logic. Your entire rant in the PA's last turn 
blended past PA's, posts on the forums, and fantasy.  Do you think anyone could have 
followed that entire example of a lunatic's mind at work?  You may be having problems 
separating life with a game.  I suggest you take a break before we read about you on 
top of a water tower.  Nut job. -- Den
P.S. Consortium teaches private lessons on his graduates, it is obvious you would like 
to attend them.  Don't forget to wear something with elastic in it and bring lipstick.

Little Stick -- Well, it looks like you finally showed up.  The contest begins!  
Challenge Womanta, she gives good wins, it is your only hope to achieve success. -- 
Den

Gentile Ben -- We have been harping on the "city council" for years to correct the 
legal spelling of our home back to "Niytyole".  Rumor has it that years ago they were 
tricked by the zealot known as Hammer into changing it.  Why they would still stick to 
a deal with that ignoramus is beyond me. We applaud your efforts but also prefer you 
not run down our streets with only your birthday suit on.  When Womanta and Consortium 
see that display, they tend to stick around longer than they should. -- Den

Presstone -- Do you have anything left to bloodfeud with?  Perhaps you did not catch 
it, but my warrior is Pretty Nifty, hard to beat something like that.  Looking forward 
to the next 4 wins from you. -- Den

Crambus -- Congratulations on taking the throne and putting it back into the hands of 
the Allied Axis, where it belongs.  Guessing you will hold that until the fall 
harvest. -- Den

Managers -- My scribes have informed me that for every win last turn, there was a 
loss.  I asked them to elaborate, and they did, for they do everything I ask of them.  
The highlights they pointed out to me were that Otto's Bad Bread went 1-3, guess his 
yeast is not rising anymore.  That happens with old age.  The Bloodstone Dwarves were 
winless, but that is a small news story.  Studcraft and his XXX Bandits continue their 
struggles and his 1-4 proves his struggles are the only thing winning in his life.  
Gentile Ben and his He Be GBS went 1-4 and he is already ranked on page 2, probably 
there for eternity, like the streaks in his shorts.  Blitz Wolfer and his Cowboys once 
again went 1-4, he goes 1-4 more often than he goes to Consortium's window.  Rounding 
out crappy turns is newcomer Little Stick and his Vicious Delite going  1-4 in their 
inaugural turn.  He has a big challenge ahead of him, we'll see what he can do with 
it, probably fail as he has with everything else in life including hygiene.  No Inner 
Circle this week, hoping for honorable mentions next week. -- Den

Deeders -- Look at you and your little push towards the top. -- Den

Philthy Phil -- Destroy Gentile Ben!  And Womanta and Little Stick.  And Deeders when 
you have time. -- Den

And like so many cliffhangers, we will be left wondering forever........

Womanta -- All I saw was Den, blah blah blah, Womanta.  Well I guess you can count as 
well.  Kudos to you! -- DD

Den spotlight away.  Just make it worthy! -- DD

Spudcraft -- Bedazzler sure looks different!  You couldn't even teach well with that 
dinosaur!  Oh well, that was your one shot.  It's tourney prep time! -- DD

GB -- Perhaps you should just give up the bloodfeud attempt. -- DD

Gentile Killer -- ! -- Gloom

Chad -- You barely have a grasp on the English language, perhaps you could serve as 
Gloom's replacement interpreter! -- DD

The rest of my life is clearly more important than reading the drivel most of you put 
here (not even mentioning trying to write my own).  Den's quest will continue, 
hopefully soon. -- General Bashur

Consortium -- I'm not sure which is more surprising: that you have a heart or that it 
continues to beat after all these decades (centuries?) -- Bashur

Stik -- I'm glad you finally realized the truth and have joined us!  Though it'll take 
some getting used to, I'm sure, going from top dog to lowly slum dweller -- G. Bashur

Crambus -- Great to have you back!  Please get to work on my stable.  I need a 
cleaning! -- Bashur

Womanta -- Drivel is too good a description of what you put in the ads -- Bashur

Chad in the ads and The Chosen One back from the dead!?!  What does this mean?

Den -- Sadly, your scum was in the wrong place at the wrong time!  All those 
challenges were second challenges.  I was after someone else, one of the truest 

cowards we have here.  Perhaps even a greater coward than the one who hides his form.  
I'd recommend seeking advice on how to manage your warriors, but there aren't many who 
meet the requirements (willingness and ability) -- Bashur 

Chad -- Still Having Fun?? I think with those last two Whoopings I gave you, I now 
have the lead.....which in our sub 40% world makes me the prettiest fat girl at Spring 
Break! -- Deeders

Zeabos -- You're about as popular as a Hungarian Steeler fan in Dearkearts living 
room. 

Crambus -- Nice to see you could party with your aluminum cans and join us. -- Deeders

Dorks -- A hearty welcome to the new IC Flagship!! -- Deeders

ManaQueen --  Are you so ashamed at RSIs laughable coddling of SSSTINK that you had to 
change your team name?  Bask in her Icy embrace Groveler, you need the help! Deeders 
the Pure

Consodomite --  Away with you, child lover!  This Island is no place for the likes of 
you! -- Deeders

To All You New Teams --  I'll expect your tribute payments no later than Monday 
evenings.  Let's not have a another situation! 

Important Safety Note --  New Teams, when walking down IC road, DO NOT forget your 
Armor Underwear!!! Many a newbie now passes wind with the ease of a Summer Breeze. -- 
Deeders

Phil and Chad --  The IC would like you to please stay off their road! 

Phil --  Perhaps it's time for a new puppet. Does Bill know of your failures?  

He Be GBS -- .......Fun game......He Be Gobbling Ball Sacks??

                          MAKING YOUR CHALLENGES GO THROUGH

     First, you need to be sure you are making your challenges correctly.
     1.  Are you writing down the warrior I.D. number of the warrior you want to 
challenge?
     2.  Is your handwriting clear?
     3.  Is the warrior you are challenging within range of your warrior?  Warriors 
can challenge within their own class and the next higher class, plus the "Challenger" 
classes can also challenge the next lower class.  So, an Adept can challenge Adepts 
and Challenger Adepts.  A Challenger Adept can challenge Adepts, Challenger Adepts, 
and Champions.  (Try not to challenge down, though.  Besides being unsportsmanlike and 
making everyone mad, it isn't advantageous to your warriors.  They need to fight more 
experienced warriors so they will learn.)
     4.  Are your warriors eligible to make challenges?  If they didn't fight within 
the last two turns, then they can't challenge.
     5.  Are the warriors they want to fight eligible to receive challenges?  If they 
didn't fight within the last two turns, then they can't be challenged.

     Next, adjust your choices for the maximum likelihood of getting your challenges.  
There are several things that will help:
     1.  Have each of your warriors challenge two different opponents from two 
different teams.  That way, if the first opponent's team doesn't fight that turn, you 
still might get your second challenge.
     2.  Use your avoids.  Have each warrior avoid the teams of whoever you think 
might be likely to challenge him.  If you can get out of being challenged, that 
increases your chance of getting your own challenge through.
     3.  Don't challenge warriors who didn't fight last turn.  The odds are higher 
that they won't be fighting this turn.
     4.  Don't challenge warriors who might be involved in a bloodfeud (either as the 
killers, or the avengers).  A bloodfeud challenge has priority over all other 
challenges.
     5.  Don't challenge Tournament Victors.  A TV challenge has priority over all 
other challenges except bloodfeuds.  You'll need to do a little research in back 
issues of the newsletter to find out who the TVs are.
     6.  Don't challenge warriors who you know are going to challenge someone else, or 
are going to get challenged by someone else.  Your challenge has a better chance of 
getting through if it is the only challenge to that particular warrior.
     7.  Don't challenge the "easy pickings."  That is, warriors above you who have 
way too few fights or very bad records for where they are ranked.  They will tend to 
get challenged a lot.
     8.  Don't challenge warriors who are likely to be avoiding your team.  This 
includes any warrior your team fought within the last two turns.
     Well, it sounds like I've eliminated just about everybody, doesn't it?  Of course 
you can challenge opponents who fit into one or more of those categories; just try to 
find ones who don't.  Your idea candidate for a challenge is:  A warrior ranked 
somewhat above your warrior in the same class, or in the next higher class, with a few 
more fights than your warrior, and a winning record, who isn't a TV and isn't 
currently at war with anyone.
     I hope this will be of some help to you.
