                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TRANSEL a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, TERROR TURKEY 
fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 18 points and contributed to HOLIDAY HORRORS' 
3-1-1.  MARDI GRAS MASHER has lost to FRATSFA SLAVE, falling 3 points, while helping 
make HOLIDAY HORRORS a 3-1-1 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and COOKIE FOR THE SOUL remains TRANSEL's top warrior for another turn.  Tell 
me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory 
Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  HOLIDAY HORRORS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were TRANSEL's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And guess who avoided HOLIDAY HORRORS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
HOLIDAY HORRORS.  Anyone surprised?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Amendment for "Fratsfa's Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
