                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in KOLACT, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--KING NIXON.  Those betting on DEVIL'S 
ADVOCATE lost their shirt, as DEVIL'S ADVOCATE lost their fighting abilities:  0-0-0. 
What's a move up by 8 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to SPRINGBORN.  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
MEGAWARRIORS can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays for OJO TANGO, who pummelled 
QUANTUM, to pocket 38 points.  ART ERY certainly had a baffled expression on its 
face, after losing to BAILEY O'BEAD and losing 17 points in the process!  A certain 
someone saw SIR INGOMYELIC at Don Corleone's with the shakes, and now he fails to 
show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater victory?  
OJO TANGO has taken his place as the top, as KOLACT's new Duelmaster.  Word has it 
one team in KOLACT is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
DEVIL'S ADVOCATE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, TOWNSVILLAINS scurried away from DEVIL'S 
ADVOCATE.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, DEEMONICA could open up a fast 
food joint!  As a confidence booster, CUP O'PIZZA challenged TYCHO, down 25 points.  
Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, CUP O'PIZZA?  CUP O'PIZZA won 
victory over TYCHO.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  QAEDA, AL found himself 
challenged by a warrior 18 below:  BANE.  BANE of MEGAWARRIORS kept his wits as he 
lost to QAEDA, AL.  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note the 
mismatched fight, SIR OCCO and STORMBLADE.  Are SIR AGLIO unwilling to engage in a 
fair fight?  I thought SIR OCCO showed great skill and promise when he defeated 
STORMBLADE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Alas, poor QUANTUM.  We all know QUBIT's retirement plan isn't the best in the 
world.  OJO TANGO, may you be as missed when your time comes.  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and 
an overtaxed simile, I now bid KOLACT farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Deemonica -- Many thanks, my dear.  You've put an old gladiator back in favor with
his manager! -- The Upright Man

Quietus -- Well, Ranvenar, like myself, must keep the fans satisfied turn after turn,
for they are a fickle sort.  This turn goes to me....  All time popularity stats for
myself:
    Greatly Increased -- 10 times
    Increased -- 7 times
    Marginally Increased -- 11 times
Yes, a tough and fickle crowd they are indeed.... -- The Upright Man

Ranvenar -- Ahh, I thought there was something strangely familiar with you.  Our
first fight I was almost in shock with my own memories.  The style, your size, your
weapon, but what really gave it away, was the tattoo of your ID on your arm.  It was
a glimpse of the good ol' days; I couldn't concentrate and I wasn't putting up much
of a fight for you.  So I decided to pick a fight with you the next time around to
give you more of what you should have got the first time.  I had some time between
the fights to think on this and I believe it is my memories that which led me to my
victory.  You may think you've been re-animated, but you will always be Chainsaw to
me.  See ya on the sands, old friend. -- Stormblade

Herbert Philip Lovecraft West -- To join the name of two individuals is quite
interesting, although I don't know of any other alias you have.  It fits you and your
re-animated warriors.  First off, its good to have you back.  It's been a long while.
I hope you stay a bit and train with my warriors; they could learn something from
you.  It's good to see Chainsaw and the Executioner back to play (re-animated of
course).  I've not had the opportunity to meet the new guys.  Sorry to see the loss
of one of your guys last turn.  Good luck to ya, we'll be seeing you.  Say...should
we have this Dance of Death?! -- Zeus

Mithril -- It's good to see us all in Kolact again; fight on my brother! -- Zeus

Dantavius -- Sir Formidabobbles, the Beast of the Isle.  (that's you) Beast! --
Gracie

Hell Blazer -- My tiara's tarnished and you've made a fiasco (there, I said it.
<lady's love to bet>) of my come-as-you-are, Blazer. -- Lady Divan

Wolfraven -- And a lobber-stoggered Drat! to you too. -- Ron

St Stephen -- So, adieu...till I need practice. -- Ivan Mashminaplp

Sir Iglo -- A chance to beat me???  Hmmm...I do believe you raked the sands with me.
-- (a sore but resilient) Vulgar

Al -- Hey!?  How'd I get stuck matched up with you?  DEE owns you!  NOT ME!! --
(coming again anyway) Bane

Roc -- Adequate name....  Don't think I ever saw you move...much less swing. -- Fear

Assamite -- GREAT turn!!!  (again)  You truly are CHAOS at its finest. -- Matrix

Blitz -- Welcome to Kolact!  *snicker* -- Matrix
P.S.  Not Jhans...but not easy either....

Welcome new managers and stables!!!  Kolact is glad for your offerings!  Also...
local residents....  Please give the KLK a warm welcome, for they have come to Kolact
to do battle with the CHAOS group, since we (well...I) invaded their home, Jhans. --
Matrix

Sultan -- Meet your HONOR warrior...Sir Q.  Hope he does you justice! -- Matrix

                            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 dueling land 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

Azereth has returned!  I am the manager for Scarlet Blades in DM 25.  I was a member

hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
     Anthony Wells
     600 W. Shore Dr.
     Stanton, MI  48888
or by personal ads in DM 25.
