                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TRANSEL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, HOLIDAY HORRORS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
HORNED ONE?  He actually beat TRANSEL's NURNIN THE UNLUCKY, and walked away with 13 
more points from the fight.  Try as he might, WEGERIN GREATBLADE wasn't good enough 
at persuading COOKIE FOR THE SOUL to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, DARK PANTHEON!  The bums at HOLIDAY HORRORS couldn't face the challenges 
from DARK PANTHEON!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, MARDI GRAS MASHER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of TRANSEL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  MAURADER was plum 
wore out after MARDI GRAS MASHER pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  DARK PANTHEON'll 
have to get a little better before going after MARDI GRAS MASHER again!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

I have returned after a five-year absence.  I expect all tithes, gifts and bequeaths
to resume as normal. -- Magic Man

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!
