                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to DIFFERENT HATS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE 
DREIHDENS 2 stable.  Take a look at TEERAK HA's act, as they have a 4-0-0 week and 
gain 12 places in the team ranking.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread 
(okay, I admit it's corny) is THOROUGHBREDS, who swept up 13 places in the ranks.  
Take a look at DREAMERS' act, as they have a 4-1-1 week and gain 13 places in the 
team ranking.  A seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to DOGS OF WAR, which 
fell to 26th, it's what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  What goes up, 
must come down.  Watch out JHELUM!  SOME BODIES may fall on you as it crushes past 
the teams below it to fall on the 34th spot.  PURPLE AND GOLD is no joke as it posted 
a 4-1-0 week advancing from 12th place to 3rd place.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
HUSBAND, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing FIRE BALL like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  FIRE BALL lost to HUSBAND and drops 18 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that 
doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  MARCH MADNESS made a challenge against 
CHASM OF IGNORANCE this week.  In front of all the crowds, CHASM OF IGNORANCE took 
the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they 
are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHELUM arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad FLAGG XVI-CHAOS?   Big bad FLAGG 
XVI-CHAOS.  Big bad FLAGG XVI-CHAOS.  JHELUM's afraid of the big bad FLAGG XVI-CHAOS. 
Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch DRACONOMICON's act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from FLAGG XVI-CHAOS.  Well 
dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, CHARLEY PATTON would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  Challenging down 17 points was 
PUTRESSENCE.  Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way 
to clean up' pins.  I just want to congratulate SI on beating PUTRESSENCE.  She 
overcame hers superior-ranked opponent and gained 20 points.  Congrats!  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, ZOLA went after STANLEY'S CUP, who was 
higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust settled, ZOLA was overcame by STANLEY'S 
CUP.  VANGUARD of ORCCON THUGS had better have a good reason for challenging down 10 
points in a challenge which he won.  I thought VANGUARD showed great skill and 
promise when he overcame PEG THE SCARY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal! 
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, 
PUTRESSENCE was mashed by SI, who let PUTRESSENCE know that killing members of TEERAK 
HA is a no-no.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  
Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

me feel that it's all worth while. -- Pericles

White Worldbenger -- Ah, very good. -- The Corsican
P.S.  So tell me, how do you beng a world?  And why?

everything rather thoroughly. -- Nick

music.  You are a fine warrior.  I won't be around too long, but I will have fun
while I'm here.  Hope you taught well. -- Aqua Lung

of that dark place. -- Dirty Deeds

Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables.
     Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte
sound good?  How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed
three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!?  How about a
Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL
for a favorite weapon!?
     Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic.  Then how does a stable with four Adept
class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound?  Or maybe a stable with
three 21-Will warriors?  Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who
have a combined record of 23-6-1?
     The quality of the lots is excellent.  All you need to view and bid on the lots
is go to:

     If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction,
just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex-
Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me.  I just moved to New
Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's
Mardi Gras!  So I have named my auction in honor of this occasion.
     The auction will start on Saturday, March 13th, 2004, and will continue for
several weeks.  But you should get your bids in early if you want your best chance at
owning any of these fantastic warriors and stables.
     Many thanks to all for your interest and your bids,

Style Masters Symposium
Hosted by Hammer

     The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last
Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed.
     There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another
Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005.
     This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the
info to a CD for distribution.
     Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to
those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars.
     The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by
Hammer".
     Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers
who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004.
     Informative and entertaining articles should focus on insights regarding Any or
All 10 Style Masters for both the Basic and ADM arenas as well as Tourney
competition.
     Articles focusing on Weapons/Armor are also encouraged for inclusion.
     Whether you are a Newbie Manager without a clue or a Jaded Veteran; everyone has
discovered something about this gaming experience that is both Insightful and
Entertaining.
     Email Your Articles to HammerDM@fastermail.com or send them via Diplo to either
Flower Hammerz (372) in DM 28 or Casino Hammerz (576) in DM 33.
     Length and Content of the Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer will be
Determined by the Quality and Quantity of Contributors Combined with the Literary
Efforts of Hammer who is currently overseas for an indefinite period of time.
     Articles Contributed for this Project should be of Sufficient Length and Content
to Warrant being Included to Receive the Finished Document when Hammer has completed
this literary work to His satisfaction.
     Managers contributing articles are also requested to include a DM Bio of
Themselves along with any Notable Successes and/or Failures during Their DM Career in
Basic, ADM and/or Tourney Play.
     A listing of Active Stables would also be Helpful for Anyone Seeking to Reply to
Contributors via Diplo, Email or Snailmail.
     May Your Blades Be Sharp And Your Wits Sharper!

St. Valentine's Day Massacre Update

     We are pleased to announce that the kLk sponsored St. Valentine's Day Massacre
kill contest in DM 36 is off to a great start.  We are also pleased to announce that
in addition to the 10 team rollups we are also able to offer the renaming of a dark
arena warrior as a prize to the manager with the most kills.  The contest is only 2
turns old and is still wide open.  There are currently 5 managers tied with one kill
each.  Anything can still happen so hurry up and get into the arena.
     On a personal note, no other alliances have entered the arena in force to
challenge the kLk dominance.  We were expecting The Firm to put up a fight for their
supposed home arena.  But, they were a no show.  Guess they proved what they are
really made of.  *evil grin*
     Perhaps another alliance would like to step in to give us a challenge.  We are
throwing down the gauntlet.  Perhaps the Chaos Inc. boys I keep hearing about would
like to step in and challenge the kLk for arena dominance.  If you don't show up,
Chaos, don't feel bad.  FAR better managers than you have been invited into Jhans but
have chosen to pass on the offer.
     So if you consider yourself worthy to compete, like fierce competition, and
enjoy arenas where the personals are as fierce as the fighting, come visit JHANS DM
36.  We're already planning our next contest, "Capture the Flag," and have a
storyline being actively worked on in the arena.  Whatever you like about DM you can
find it in JHANS.
