                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JHELUM!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It doesn't rain, but it pours for SUPERIOR FORCES ZC2 this turn, a 0-5-0 
causing a 11 flight drop in the team rankings.  Hand that team a dry towel.  DREAMERS 
stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-0 into a 9 space move up the rankings.  This 
brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  The BLACK & BLUE guild has had a 
4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, WHITE DOG fought CIPHER and gained 24 points and 
contributed to MAYAN WHITE's 3-2-1.  CUBS FAN has lost to WHITE WIND, falling 16 
points, while helping make DIFFERENT HATS a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and STANLEY'S CUP remains JHELUM's top warrior for another 
turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the DARK TOADS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on JHELUM, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided DARK TOADS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
DIFFERENT HATS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that ULTIMATE PAIN 
from LUROCIANS Z2 was JHELUM's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave 
attempt, MAGIC JOHNSON from PURPLE AND GOLD challenged up 21 points to fight WHITE 
WORLDBENGER from the MAYAN WHITE stable.  MAGIC JOHNSON perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he lost to WHITE WORLDBENGER and ended up with 29 recognition 
points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  60HZ SHUFFLE has departed JHELUM, leaving SHOCK TROOPS without their 
3-6-0 warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  
Whatever bright future OTIS SPANN may have had, it's all history now.  The manager of 
CLASSIC BLUES has lost a promising 2-0-0 warrior.  ORCCON THUGS has lost CIPHER to 
the arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 
6-5-0?  I guess it was coming sooner or later, LUROCIANS Z2 has lost ULTIMATE DESIRE, 
and JHELUM is bound to miss her.  For a little while, at least.  The Warty Toad 
declares a free round for PUTRESSENCE and all of DARK TOADS, for having revenged 
MILLENIUM METAL's SALIVA for killing one of their comrades.  We'd like to remind 
certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's 
considered rude.   
     I like this place, JHELUM, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in JHELUM, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

                             Death Fest Begins July 29/DM 59 T-172

     "You drive a hard bargain Hammer," responded Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul, "but the
Gladiatorial Commission has agreed to re-open DM 58 Delarq Tor as a Slow Arena
exclusively for a period of six months to those Death Fest contestants who fight
their stables at least 67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death
Fest; on the condition that at least 20 stables qualify for the Illis Iron Stable
Award at the conclusion of the Death Fest and those qualifying managers send a New
Stable to DM 58 Delarq Tor without Cannibalizing their participation in the other
arenas where they have active stables!"
     Hammer felt a certain sense of satisfaction as he studied the ghoulish grin
spreading across the face of Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul; proud Arena Master of the once
dying Illis Arena, as the DM 59 Arena Authority signed the Gladiatorial Commission
papers authenticating the arrangement agreed upon by the two parties presiding.
     "You and the Gladiatorial Commission also drive a hard bargain," Hammer replied
as he reflected upon the prospects of Delarq Tor DM 58 being re-opened as a Slow
Arena with at least 20 New Stables by the Managers who fight their stables at least
67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death Fest. "I also notice the
clause that for Delarq Tor to be open Exclusively for 6 months to the New Stables
managed by the Illis Iron Stable Award Winners that there must be at least 15 stables
Active each cycle. That is a fair bargain for the opportunity to battle for the
Duelmaster Throne each of those six months before Other New Stables are allowed to
enter Delarq Tor."
     This was a Golden Opportunity for both Veteran and Newbie Managers to pave a new
frontier of Delarq history by qualifying their Death Fest stables in DM 59 with 67
fights out of a possible 75; then for the price of running a stable in a Regular
Arena, continuing to be Active in DM 59 and sending a New Team Roll Up to be a part
of "History in the Making" when Delarq Tor would re-open for its First Turn as a Slow
Arena on November 3rd, 2005.
     Death Fest would conclude on T-186 August 25th, 2005 allowing the Illis Iron
Stable Award Winners enough time to be registered with the Gladiatorial Commission;
whereupon they would be able to submit a New Team Roll Up to the GC to start a New
Stable in Delarq Tor; be able to fight those New Gladiators in the Rookies 2005 Fall
Mailer Tourney; then begin competing for the DM 58 Duelmasters Throne in Delarq Tor
right out of the gate with the November 3rd 2005 T-1 Debut Opening Round.
     Hammer of the First Part had also negotiated with Lord Na-Zul of the Second Part
an agreement that All 10 Dark Arena Monsters and 17 NPCs Characters be re-named by
the Top Ten Death Fest Finishers. [See DM 59 T-171 Newsletter Team Spotlight by
Hammer for the complete listing of Dark Arena Monsters/NPCs and the Official Death
Fest Designation for which Top Ten Finishers re-name which characters!]
     Lord Na-Sul could not hide his delight at the prospects of Death being re-
delivered to his once dying arena during the Delarq Death Fest; the DM 59 Arena
Master agreed that these Death Fest Prizes were but a Small Exchange in Comparison to
the Profits to be made by the local Illis business merchants and surrounding
community from the Anticipated Influx into Illis by the Veteran and Newbie
Managers/Gladiators/Stables seeking to make History in the Delarq Death Fest.
     Nor could Hammer conceal his jubilation regarding the Call Across Alistari being
Answered to Cross Blades and Match Wits with the Devious, the Diabolical, the
Dangerous and the Down Challenging who were being drawn to the Delarq Death Fest to
Fulfill their Delarq Dueling Destiny!
