                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello, Transel!

Well, I guess I don't have to worry about Trollock anymore.  A new team comes in and
just starts killing all of Jan's warriors.  Good way to make friends.  Yfel Steorra,
welcome to Transel!  As for me, Doc cooked up a strategy for me and I managed to just
squeak by Khomeini.  I suppose I'll have to do it a few more times to make it to AD.
Not much else to comment on.  I'll be interested to see what Sensei Jan has to say
about all this?

Third Omen, Legion4

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TRANSEL.  Too bad, BATTLE BEASTS, but DARK 
PANTHEON was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for GREAT DANE?  BATTLE BEASTS' 
proud of her after beating BUMBLE-FINGERS and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  RED RIGHT HAND's match with JULIUS CAESAR cost him a loss of 9 points! 
This Duelmaster is like something else!  THIRD OMEN stopped KHOMEINI dead in his 
tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  YFEL STEORRA was TRANSEL's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  I don't know what BATTLE BEASTS' been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from YFEL STEORRA, that's fer sher.  
Like, is KABILA popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of TRANSEL!  
He's got a 1-4-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this guy???  REINDEER 2 gets sent to the Dark Arena, 
battles C'YLENRE THE SLY, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet HOLIDAY HORRORS manager 
is surprised!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from 
you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Sirius -- Sorry about the bloodfeud but it doesn't seem you're gonna get to kill or
feud him.  No disrespect.  Scum Aimers are no fun.  A good waste stat but gotta have
fun experimenting.  He is D.A. bound. -- Din

Wolfhound -- Good fight.  Thanks for the skills.  I didn't expect you as that style.
-- Steal Shank

Jan -- What's up with the tournament blues?  I personally miss the many active teams.
I only have but 2 good guys left.  Hopefully I can make the others as good or better.
Hell Storm didn't do very well but has a masters in Dec.  Do you think I should still
run tactics on first min? -- Din

Horned One -- Hmmm...a good fight! -- Blood Rayne

All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct
and up to date.  Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your
updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com.  As you may guess, replace the
at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the
web).

I have information on the following alliances:  ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada,
Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of
Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson
Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ,
Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk,
Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and
Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of
Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection,
Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel.

If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know.  If you are a member of
some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know.  If you were at any point in your
past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know.
Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to
still be in the same alliance when they return.  Even having everyone in an alliance
go inactive doesn't change anything.  If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's
another thing you have to let me know....

The Saint, keeper of lists

P.S.  If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore
this.

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,

STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.
