                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JHELUM since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
MAYAN WHITE was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 3-2-0!  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
SOME BODIES is now ranked 15th with a 3-2-0 turn.  What's with QUAX?  He actually 
beat CHEETO'S HEROES' CHEETOO, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at CHEETO'S HEROES.  CHEETOO lost 17 points to QUAX.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CHEETOO will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, 
GROTESQUE wasn't good enough at persuading STIGMA to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
JHELUM thinks DARK TOADS and their 40-42-4 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 38-40-4 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, DIFFERENT HATS?  What do people see in ABHORRENCE?  Hers 9-6-2?  DARK 
TOADS ain't talkin', but she's got 72 points.  Keep challenging up 28 points, 
VANGUARD, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  ABHORRENCE always accepts 
those kind of challenges...  Sometimes what you expect to do (like in the fights) 
doesn't expect to turn out like you thought.  VANGUARD subdued ABHORRENCE.  It don't 
make sense.  Maybe SUPERIOR FORCES ZC2's JUSTGIVEITUP is one of those guys who likes 
pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 26 to MA 
RAINEY.  JUSTGIVEITUP did pretty good last week in beating MA RAINEY to get 22 
points.  Why did MA RAINEY lose, you ask?  Simple:  she wasn't good enough.  HUSBAND 
expects the easy win by going 22 points down.  SOGNATORE will find this a hard 
lesson!  HUSBAND defeated SOGNATORE.  DIFFERENT HATS calls this fighting?  In my 
day...  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that CUBS FAN 
gets in.  He fights people like WHITE DOG, 13 points below.  I thought CUBS FAN 
showed great skill and promise when he was defeated by WHITE DOG.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of JHELUM unite.  You have only your games to lose!  We all knew it had 
to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around with a 4-6-1, and SPARKACUS 
easily took care of CAREOLA DENALLA.  MAGIC JOHNSON larned his lesson (DARK CHAMPION 
taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any BLACK & BLUE 
members with the same gusto.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  
You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

The Machine -- (shakes head sadly)  That soulless mechanical precision.  There is no 
art in it. -- Pericles

Sparkacus -- Shouldn't your name have been "Spark-and-cuss"? -- Dogface
P.S.  Well, yeah, I did borrow my Daddy's armor.  It's better'n mine, and it fits, 
more or less.
P.P.S.  Mine's at the laundry.  They're trying to get the bloodstains out.

Willie Brown -- Surely you don't think the Giants are gonna win this year.  Cubs are 
gonna win!  THIS year.  You should have known better! -- Cubs Fan

Charley Patton -- No comment. -- Deacon

Manager -- You're supposed to share the wins, not take them all for yourself. -- Assur

Agent 47 -- I hope you don't expect me to pay your for that job.  You botched it 
entirely.  When I hired a hitman, I expect him to put the target 6 feet under! -- 
Assurnasirbanipal

All -- Can't remember if styles needed to be announced for a warriors fights to count 
towards the team mvp or not so just in case they do, my newest warrior, ARGHH, is a

                            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 duelingland 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
