                                      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, GAMES LIBRARY had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by AESIR!  Way to go AESIR!  MVP award 
for ALFJAR?  AESIR's proud of him after beating GWENNOLAS and getting 21 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  HEARTS' match with AMBITIOUS GUARD cost her a loss of 
14 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  NOT HOYLE stopped KHALHUMS DWARF 
dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said OSKSI's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Elefont?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All OSKSI ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

The Khalhums Dwarf?  That's all you can come up with to meet ME on the sands?  This
is disgusting.  This is... Not Hoyle!

By the Holy Referee!  The Venomous Concubine BIT me!  I must have the antivenin at
once--to die of the bite of a Venomous Concubine would be too demeaning. -- The
Goalie

Oh, dear.  That poor Captured Orc, he's treated so badly!  Exhibited like an animal
in a zoo, with people poking sticks at him and throwing him peanuts!  It's a
disgrace.  Something must be done about it. -- Hearts

Black Widow -- (recoiling)  No!  I escape an encounter with the Venomous Concubine,
just to meet you?  No!  I don't deserve this!  Get away from me! -- Pencil Neck

Beneico -- You know, that didn't appeal to me.  It didn't seem right and proper.  I
think *I* should win.  After all, look at the cellulose content of raw potatoes. --

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
