                             ZalCon2 Standings, Turn 13

     We are at the two thirds pole in the contest so I have decided to make you all
work to get into my standings.  It takes 100 points this turn to make the Team MVP
list and 8 points will be added each turn to that minimum (Force of Five is closest
one out at 98 points this turn).  In the Warrior MVP standings it will be 24 points
to get in this turn and 2 points added each turn to a minimum of 11 (the total prizes
for the category).  Style Masters will have to be within 6 points of the leader to be
listed to a maximum of the Top 6 to save space.  All eligible Iron Managers will be
listed each turn.
     If you have any questions about were your warrior or team is you can diplo,
email or write me at:
     zalgor@hotmail.com or Robert Occhipinti, 14411 Cambridge St. Moorpark, CA 93021.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JHELUM, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  DARK TOADS?  Who?  HITMEN FOR HIRE is the top team 
these days, buddies!  Perhaps it is HITMEN FOR HIRE members' intannibility that 
enabled them to move from 13th to 1st last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Rumor 
has it an incurable disease has swept the stable of DREAMERS.  Note their drop in the 
rankings from 3rd to 14th.  Watch out!!!  SUPERIOR FORCES ZC2 posted a nice gain, to 
come in 6th.  Everybody loves a winner...  HITMEN FOR HIRE had cause to celebrate, 
after CRAZY IVAN got 23 points by beating HOPELESS ROB.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, CRAZY IVAN was winsome, after beating HOPELESS ROB and seeing him 
lose 20 points.  What can be a greater victory?  STIGMA has taken his place as the 
top, as JHELUM's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in JHELUM is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
PURPLE AND GOLD are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DIFFERENT HATS, so did that sorry 
team shy from PURPLE AND GOLD If challenges were horses, MAGIC JOHNSON could open up 
a fast food joint!  Take heed JHELUM, of the unprincipled action of PROBLEM SOLVER.  
By challenging ICBTRISA, 24 points below him, PROBLEM SOLVER besmirches the noble art 
of dueling.  PROBLEM SOLVER will have to start challenging legless old maids next, as 
he was subdued by ICBTRISA.  Good show, ICBTRISA!  CHAOS MAGE found himself 
challenged by a warrior 23 below:  MUDVAYNE.  MUDVAYNE of MILLENIUM METAL kept his 
wits as he bested CHAOS MAGE.  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note 
the mismatched fight, THE MACHINE and PERICLES.  Are FORCE OF FIVE unwilling to 
engage in a fair fight?  I thought THE MACHINE showed great skill and promise when it 
won victory over PERICLES.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Justice was 
served as VANGUARD fought WHITE DOG in bloodfeud.  Well done, ORCCON THUGS!  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in JHELUM would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JHELUM farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

                            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
