                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon OSKSI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Those betting on AESIR lost their shirt, as AESIR 
lost their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as BRIGHT can attest...  Say what you will about 
blind luck and dirty fighting, but FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT will tell you 127-86-6 is 
nothing to laugh at...  23RD & WESTON had cause to celebrate, after SMOKEY got 37 
points by beating ETERNAL D.J..  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, THE SUN was 
winsome, after beating HEARTS and seeing her lose 12 points.  Duelmaster GREEN BEAN 
from VEGGIES is going for the gold, as he TV challenged THE NUKES' FROSTY.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  FROSTY found out that OSKSI isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best 
to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in OSKSI is taking speech lessons to try 
to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are OSKSI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in AESIR are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 
'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of VEGGIES, so did that sorry 
team shy from AESIR Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and A is it right now.  
Most challenged warrior.  Isn't BRIGHT proud!  Them's the breaks, NOT HOYLE.  
Expecting fair challenges from VEGGIES is evidently too much to ask.  CARROT bested 
NOT HOYLE with a point difference of 25.  So this is what OSKSI calls a duel.  This 
will make an interesting tale.  Word has it SQUASH suffered a romantic setback.  Note 
how he challenged THE GOALIE, 29 points his senior.  If SQUASH had overcame THE 
GOALIE, he'd be a hero, but since he lost we just laugh at him.  Tough break.  Take 
heed OSKSI, of the unprincipled action of SOLDIER #2.  By challenging A, 19 points 
below him, SOLDIER #2 besmirches the noble art of dueling.  SOLDIER #2 will have to 
start challenging legless old maids next, as he was beat by A.  Good show, A!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
OSKSI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Elefont.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Green Bean -- Ugh!  (shuddering)  I've faced FAR too many green beans in the past
week!  And meatloaf, too, too much of that.  So I just could NOT deal with you
appropriately today.  ("Appropriately" would involve enough cheese and garlic, or at
least butter and garlic, to totally disguise everything.)  But I suppose four skills
and two ratings will bring you back again, as it would bring anyone.  Oh, well.  I
can take it.  I must. -- Dewey, feeling decimated

Carrot -- Dewey gets all mushy about you veggies, sometimes.  Goes on about "edible
flora" and botanical categories, whatever those are.  And I don't want to hear about
it!  To be attacked by a piece of edible flora is... Not Hoyle!

Squash -- YOU may think it was some kind of JOKE to fall on me and FLATTEN me like
that, but I do NOT find anything FUNNY in it. -- Joker

Frosty -- (crossly)  You should be some kind of mutant veggie yourself.  A sugar-
glazed yam, or something.  You're certainly icky enough.  And is that a miniature
marshmallow in your ear? -- The Goalie

Cult Member -- What KIND of cult, dear?  One of those "love in a bower" ones, I hope?
I could give you a few pointers, as your technique is sadly lacking. -- Hearts

Green Bean -- Good gods, man, you're going to the mountains NOW?  You'll freeze!  I
do realize that many people consider freezing an admirable way to preserve green
beans and other veggies, but for myself, I think getting them canned is more fun. --
Dewey

Assur -- Perhaps we should invent a game taking off from my Decimal System.  After
all, every great game starts with some unlikely idea.... -- Dewey

Squash -- I'm a carnivore. -- Joker

Ed. -- Your suggestions have been noted and will be used next time (I hope not soon)
somebody dies on this team.  Thanks. -- Nick

All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct
and up to date.  Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your
updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com.  As you may guess, replace the
at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the
web).

I have information on the following alliances:  ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada,
Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of
Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson
Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ,
Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk,
Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and
Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of
Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection,
Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel.

If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know.  If you are a member of
some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know.  If you were at any point in your
past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know.
Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to
still be in the same alliance when they return.  Even having everyone in an alliance
go inactive doesn't change anything.  If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's
another thing you have to let me know....

The Saint, keeper of lists

P.S.  If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore
this.

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,
depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer
500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.
     On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a

there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are

     SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED
STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.
