                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in OSKSI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, THE NUKES had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by AESIR!  Way to go AESIR!  VEGGIES 
like really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 5th.  Way to go!  One team deserves 
special mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it up, AESIR!  MVP 
award for DEWEY?  GAMES LIBRARY's proud of him after beating FROSTY and getting 15 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  FROSTY's match with DEWEY cost him a loss of 9 
points!  BRUENOR thinks his 9-5-1 and studly character is good enough to face up to 
the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  This Duelmaster is like something else!  LEFTISTS BLOW 
stopped BRUENOR dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors 
get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  AMERICAN APPRAISAL was OSKSI's 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why 
VEGGIES' been avoiding AMERICAN APPRAISAL so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?  Like, is NOT HOYLE popular, or what?  It was challenged the most in all of 
OSKSI!  It's got a 11-32-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I 
found out GREEN BEAN challenged NOT HOYLE.  After all, haven't VEGGIES and GAMES 
LIBRARY had a long standing duel in OSKSI?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but NOT HOYLE wants me to write about it since it was bested by GREEN BEAN. 
Satisfied?  SQUASH must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged HEARTS.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought SQUASH showed great skill and promise when he defeated HEARTS.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

                            Invitation to Newbie Managers
                                 by Hammer

     As a Captain of the Vendetta Cartel, Hammer has recently dissolved the Vendetta
Cartel Crimson Ascension Family.  Lady Martilyo and Rook are NO LONGER members of the
Vendetta Cartel.
     The Vendetta Cartel is divided into "Families" under the leadership of Captains;
who have been appointed by the VC God Father known throughout the dueling land as
Master Darque.
     Hammer is now the Captain of the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe and the veteran
manager extends an invitation for prospective membership as a Probate [ONLY 2 Probate
positions are available in the VC Tarantula Tribe at the present time!] to any Newbie
Manager who qualifies under the following conditions:
     1. Newbie Manager MUST have Online Access for Email communications!  [Hammer is
presently living in Qatar and Lieutenants Maximillian and Firehawk are living in
Canada; so Email Communication is a MUST for consideration!]
     2. Newbie Manager MUST have the time and funds to create 2 new stables to be
placed in 2 separate Slow Arenas [the cost of running 1 stable in a Regular Arena!]
to actively participate on a monthly basis with the other 3 T-Tribe members of the
Vendetta Cartel!
     3. Newbie Manager MUST have the DESIRE to be an Active Member of the Vendetta
Cartel as a Tarantula Tribe trainee aka Probate; developing his/her managerial skills
under the mentorship of Hammer and the other VC members; thus proving themselves
worthy to become Vendetta Cartel Lieutenants in the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe!
     The Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe lives by the Feud; thereby prospective
Probates are forewarned that membership guarantees instant Friends and instant
Enemies!
     Any prospective Probates who 1.) seek to improve their managerial
insights/abilities under the counsel of Hammer and other Vendetta Cartel members 2.)
desire to be active members of an Active Alliance that WILL NOT Dissolve in a Few
Months; building lasting friendships while enjoying Feuding with Common Enemies 3.)
who enjoy sending their gladiators to Tournaments and would strive to see their
manager name listed among the TV and TC winners in the Mailer Tourney Newsletters as
a member of the Vendetta Cartel MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
     Send an Email to HammerDM@fastermail.com to introduce yourself and provide
Hammer with a short Bio of your managerial successes/failures and favorite/least
favorite fighting styles; with a listing of your active stable/stables for Hammer to
verify in the online newsletters.
     Hammer will choose the 2 prospective Probates for membership in the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe on the basis of who he decides will be most suited [to
Hammer's purposes as the T-Tribe Captain!] from among those responding to this All
Arena Ad on a first response/first acceptance or rejection basis!
     -- Hammer; Vendetta Cartel Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe

experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
