                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KALTOS to see 
what's new.  JOHNS like really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 7th.  Way to go!  
MVP award for NORLE PARTH?  THE MIDDLE WAY 5's proud of him after beating HOFFA and 
getting 21 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  DOG's match with NEO cost it a loss 
of 18 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think BELISS DON 
should let M. CHARDINEE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  ON THE FARM was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 12-10-1 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
LARGE LOSERS?  ON THE FARM, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!  Like, is HOFFA popular, or what?  He was challenged the most 
in all of KALTOS!  He's got a 8-58-0, is that good?  MANUTE BOL must not be a good 
enough fighter to get in fair fights.  It challenged HOFFA.  8 is a big difference.  
(Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought MANUTE BOL showed great skill and promise 
when it subdued HOFFA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Fried Twinkie -- I am so GLAD you are graduating, I can hardly find the words to 
express my gladness.  Perhaps if I dance around the arena waving my sword in the air 
and shouting hosannahs?  Anyway, bon voyage, and don't let the door hit you as I slam 
it behind you. -- Beliss Don

Insanity -- I think your name probably says it all.  It certainly says more than YOU 
do! -- Erloi Gill

Hoffa -- Ah, yes, a hoffa.  There's a note posted on our guildhouse bulletin board 
(right next to the number for the pizza delivery man) that says hoffas never talk.  I 
can see why. -- Ferghan Hohl

Embezzling Scribe my left floating rib!  The cursed fellow is a bully!  He took my 
lunch money, he knocked me down, he kicked sand in my face, and then he laughed.  
Somebody should kill him! -- Norle Parth

The Persistent Beggar must be a masochist.  At least, that's what he appeared to be 
begging for.  So I obliged. -- Ingold Kerr, often obliging

Assur -- Today we would have welcomed your basher power.  Too many total parries.  
They make my, er, you don't need to know what, do you?  They make me hurt just 
thinking about them. -- Nick

Norle Parth -- You are amazingly wimpish.  Quite the girly-boy, in fact.  I simply 
ASKED if you had any lunch money, and with much trembling and paling of the face, you 
handed it over!  I hope to see a LOT of you. -- Sellow Keth, Embezzling Scribe
P.S.  Who said white collar crime didn't pay?  Besides, if you don't wash your shirt 
every day, the collar isn't white for long, and try getting anybody to do laundry 
around here!

And just before I lose my unchartered awards, I learn everything I needed to know 
about my warriors.  I'll back, but for now, this team is most likely taking a break.

                            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
