                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of KOLACT!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too 
little dodging gave BLOODSHED a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  THE 
FELLOWSHIP is now ranked 3rd with a 3-2-0 turn.  What's with QUADRICEPS?  He actually 
beat KING NIXON's WICKED SUNSHINE, and walked away with 28 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at THE FELLOWSHIP while they watched TREEBEARD clobber 
LARRUPIN LARRY.  He lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  What a role model for KOLACT's young 'uns!  SIX DEMON BAG becomes 
Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure KOLACT is excited about 
BAILEY O'BEAD, the new Duelmaster from THE MOONDOGS.  (remember?)  But when you've 
seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  KOLACT thinks THE 
MOONDOGS and their 250-441-10 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up... 
The bums at THE FELLOWSHIP couldn't face the challenges from THE MOONDOGS!  No excuse 
for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, VIVID 
SLUR!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of KOLACT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  QUADRICEPS killed 
WICKED SUNSHINE, and expects revenge from KING NIXON.  The dead are better off 
dead--they have no worries.  Is TERRAPIN STATION getting weak?  What sort of warriors 
let a comrade fall without getting revenge?  Times have changed...  GRIZZLY was plum 
wore out after DEAGOL pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  MANAGERY'll have to get a 
little better before going after DEAGOL again!  How long have I been here?  I got 
people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I

                                SLAUGHTER'S CHALLENGE

     I would like to make a formal announcement to all the managers of Alastari that
the inaugural/memorial challenge put forth by Abarsis, The Slaughter Priest (Richard
Hammes) has been approved by the commission.  The contest will be held in TROCAR,
arena 54, beginning on the turn that starts around June 2nd.  Keep in mind that this
is a slow arena.  Before I go on, I would like to personally thank the commission for
procuring an outstanding top prize for this contest.  This announcement follows my
last and entry into the contest will be a minimum $5 donation, which I will pool and
give to a charity in the San Diego area in Richard Hammes' name and memory.  My
address is at the end.  Once the donation is made, I intend to notify RSI of the
charity and amount we donated as a matter of pride for them and us in this game!  I
will notify everyone in an all arena ad as well.
     The contest is pretty simple.  Any team may enter, there are no restrictions on
fight experience!  There are no challenges, avoids, bloodfeuds, or tourneys allowed
and only one single use of the Dark Arena is allowed after the contest begins.  To
help eliminate any interference, I am going to allow avoids of non-contest teams in
case they are there to manipulate and affect the winner of the contest.  Scoring is
as follows:

1 point for winning
1 point for killing (giving 2 in total, 1 for the win and 1 for the kill)
1 point for at least one of your warriors writing a personal (regardless of number of
     personals beyond one you still only get one point).  Make sure it is written
     from one of your team's warriors and not simply the manager entity or you will
     not get the point.
-1 point for losing
-1 point for being killed (giving -2 in total, -1 for losing and -1 for being killed)

     The contest will last for 12 turns, again beginning roughly June 2nd.  May I
point out that if you use your Dark Arena fight you will get either 2 points, for
winning, or -2, for losing, and ALL fights count in the scoring.  It matters not if
you fight a non-contest warrior or a stand-in; they still count as much as fighting a
contest warrior.  This will be a test of basic strategy with a touch of luck added in
as well.
     If anyone should break the no tourney rule they will lose 5 points for each
warrior entered and those warriors, and any subsequent warriors who replace them in
death, cannot score points!  Break the no DA, challenge, or avoid rules (except
avoids of non-contest teams) and you will be DQ'd as soon as the transgression is
discovered.  To keep the contest playing field as level as possible, we will have no
messing with these rules.  Of course you may DA the one time, just as a
clarification, but the second time gets you DQ'd.  This also counts if it is found
you bring a second team in for the purpose of making challenges.  You can bring a
second team, just don't think they can challenge to give you an advantage.  This
means DQ to your contest team.  A second team may also enter the contest with its own
donation of $5 and adherence to the rules.  Well, enough of that, I'm sure you'd like
to see the prizes so here they are:

1st place - +1 bonus to one warrior on the team, 1 resurrection potion, and 1
     favorite knowledge
2nd place - +1 bonus for one warrior, 1 favorites knowledge
3rd place- +1 bonus for one warrior
Iron Manager - Run 54 of the possible 60 fights and get a +1 bonus potion

     The resurrection potion may be used on any FE warrior, however the favorites and
+1 bonus potions must be used on a warrior with at least 5 FE.  These prizes also
must be used within 2 turns of the ending of the contest.  Even those rookie level
teams can figure out a way to use that resurrection potion if you think night fight
;), after the contest of course, so don't think this is only good for experienced
teams!  Check your rosters and unused RU's and see if you can't find a reason to come
and test your mettle!
     Again, entry fee is a minimum $5 donation, money order preferred method but if
that doesn't work for you we can figure alternate means.  If a hopeful entrant
happens to be incarcerated and the only real means of making the donation is an
account transfer, please make sure you let me know where the transfer came from and
which team it is for.  I prefer that this only be used as donation method by
incarcerated players unless otherwise discussed with me.  Please drop me an email, or
diplo my team in Tobir(14), letting me know you are sending a donation for entry and
the amount so I can be on the lookout for it in the mail.  Thanks to all who have
sent their sympathies regarding our game's loss of a kind and admirable soul and my
best wishes to all!

                               A Question of Contests
                               by Hammer the WordSmith

     The familiar figure of a veteran manager clad in an Elven War Cloak at a lone
outpost somewhere near the cross roads of ElseWhere and ElseWhen sorted through his
vast disarray of DM papers and notes.
     Hammer pondered upon the recent dispatches that he had received regarding the
upcoming contests that he had been invited to participate in; after all, most contest
managers enjoyed having a HAMMERZ stable on the sands, due to the fact that they were
usually comprised of dues paying gladiators who were just a cut above the average RSI
Stand Ins.
     The Scum Fest in ADM sponsored by the veteran manager named Manager looked like
an entertaining offer, but alas, Hammer had NO candidates worthy enough to warrant
spending the cycle fees for their fleeting participation in such a contest.
     Perhaps sometime in the future, when Hammer succeeded in graduating some Aimers
and a promising candidate from one of his slow arena stables, would be the proper
     TW4 in DM 47 was already on Hammer's list of contests to participate in,
especially with the convening of the Clown Circus in North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena,
along with all the other zany personalities and alliances that promised to make this
the greatest ever Turf War contest that Alastari had ever witnessed upon the bloody
arena sands!
     Those same Clowns had sent Hammer an invitation to participate in a contest that
their Dark Knighties were sponsoring in an Andorian slow arena, but Hammer also had
an invitation to send a stable to DM 54 for a contest being held in the memory of
Slaughter Priest, one of Hammer's former alliance mates who had met with an untimely
and violently unexpected death while doing a good deed for a friend off world in San
     Also added into the mix was an intriguing contest being sponsored by Zalgor
Prigg that was to be staged in a few months in the currently closed DM 13 Dullens
Regular Arena.
     Zalgor had contacted Hammer earlier in the year to inform the veteran manager
that his newest contest would feature a first round Dark Arena Challenge to level the
playing field.  Also, each gladiator would have a hyphenated Style listing after
their name for the Style Masters competition.
     An All Arena Ad Announcement was expected to be filed by Zalgor sometime before
the Summer 2005 Tourney, thus allowing the DM 13 Dark Arena Replacement Warriors from
the Dullens Contest to enter the Rookie Fall Mailer Tourney to prep for the contest.
     Hammer had been considering sponsoring such a Dark Arena First Round Type
Contest, but it would be much better to just enter the Zalgor sponsored contest,
rather than to be subjected to all the current Contest Host Harassment that was
plaguing the many contest arenas throughout Alastari.
     A grim smile crossed the lips of Hammer as he thought about the possibility of
the Clowns getting a taste of their own medicine while sponsoring their Andorian
     Hammer quickly took a pen and paper, writing instructions to his gladiator
trainer GrimmDorr at his Hammerz Flower Garden Morya Manor Estate on the Lake on the
outskirts of the DM 28 Morya Arena, to assemble a Cast of Cast Offs to enter the
upcoming contest being sponsored by Zalgor Prigg.
     Hammer jotted down a note to file the following stable with the Gladiatorial
Commission once Zalgor Prigg had announced the contest in Dullens DM 13 Arena:
Zalgor Prigg sponsored contest in Dullens DM 13 whenever the Gladiatorial Commission
was ready.
     Hammer then turned his attention to the two slow arena contest invitations that
tugged at his emotions for full participation.
     However, there was only room for one more stable addition in the current plans
of the veteran manager, who had deactivated his SNOW CALL HAMMERZ in DM 50 to devote
his attention to entering a new stable in a promising slow arena contest.
     Street Legal had recently cleared the air with the Gladiatorial Commission in
regards to sponsoring SLAUGHTER'S CHALLENGE in DM 54, which would begin in Trocar
around the first week of June.
     As yet, there seemed to be NO OFFICIAL ALL ARENA ANNOUNCEMENT from the Clowns
regarding their contest in an Andorian slow arena.
     These Clowns had a lot to learn about sponsoring and advertising contests!
     Hammer thought back to two years ago when Maximillian had convinced the veteran
manager to Co-Sponsor Maximillian's Morya Madness in the DM 28 slow arena.
     Abarsis the Slaughter Priest had answered the call to cross blades in the
Madness by entering a stable named LEE FAMILY.
     LEE FAMILY had NOT missed a single fight during the Madness until Slaughter
Priest's life was snuffed out one dark night in San Diego while helping a friend.
     When the Delarq Death Fest was sponsored by Hammer in the DM 59 Illis slow
arena, Slaughter Priest had answered the call to cross blades by sending a stable
named FASCIST DROOL to compete for the Ten Death Fest Prize Categories.
     Abarsis the Slaughter Priest a.k.a. Richard Hammes had been a true DM friend and
a fine competitor among many, not to mention a close comrade in arms while Hammer had
been a member of the Vendetta Cartel.
     As was written by Street Legal a.k.a. Jeff Bura in a recent All Arena Ad Eulogy
to the Memory of Slaughter Priest a.k.a. Richard Hammes:
     "On November 10, 2004, Richard Hammes was taken from us in a senseless act of
violence during a robbery attempt at a friend's store where he sometimes worked.  He
was watching the store so his friend could go home to tend to his son who had taken
     Now the DM Community who either knew Rich personally from the RT and VC Emails,
or from crossing blades on the sands with this avid DM competitor; now have the
opportunity to Honor His Memory by competing in a DM 54 contest held in his Honor.
     Could Hammer do no less?
     This was an opportunity to set aside personal goals and allocate the necessary
funds to enter a stable in SLAUGHTER'S CHALLENGE to Honor the Memory of Rich Hammes!
     Hammer quickly filled out an entry form to dispatch to the Gladiatorial
Commission to register the following stable in DM 54 Trocar for SLAUGHTER'S
     Be it known that MEMORIAL HAMMERZ are hereby registering SLAUGHTER HAMMER, FASC
Trocar for the Street Legal sponsored contest in Honor of Richard Hammes a.k.a.
Abarsis the Slaughter Priest.
     GRUNGE GIRL was one of Slaughter Priest's warriors from his FASCIST DROOL.
stable that was entered in the Delarq Death Fest in DM 59 Illis Arena, so it was only
fitting to name one of the MEMORIAL HAMMERZ gladiators after one of Rich's warriors
that had competed in a Hammer Sponsored Contest.
     Hammer leaned back in his chair and reflected upon the memories of his fallen
comrade from his days in the Vendetta Cartel. Tears moistened the veteran manager's
eyes upon every remembrance of his fallen VC comrade in arms.
     Hopefully the odd assortment of veteran and newbie managers would answer the
call to cross blades in Honor of the fallen Slaughter Priest in the type of contest
that Rich had envisioned to one day Sponsor and Participate with some of Alastari's
Finest Managers!
     This One's for YOU Rich/Slaughter Priest; May You Rest in Peace!

                           FRATSFA'S QUEST FOR THE BEST!!!

     Rollup certs aplenty!  Need to know favorites for warriors initiate or above?
SURE!  Renaming of both the arena and the D.A. Monsters?  Why not!  Skill bonus
potions?  Of course!  This and more is all possible for the top 10 (ten) teams in:
Fratsfa's Quest for the Best!
     What does it cost you ask?  NOTHING!  Who is running the contest and putting up
the total of 30 rollup certs as prizes to be split up amongst the top 6 (six) teams?
Dark Knight Wasby, Dark Knight Goat and Dark Knight Toker of the Desolate Empire of
vendett@UNITED!  The gaming commission is also going to supply prizes for the top 10

(ten) teams.  Where?  FRATSFA DM-52!  When?  The month of July, T-207.
     Rules!  We, of the Desolate Empire, do not like the word Rules!  So, we use the
term requirements.  Here they are:

1.  One team per manager entered in the contest.
2.  Only (1) Total Parry on your team at a time.
3.  You must declare (1) warrior as your team's scout.
4.  Managers that have teams established in Fratsfa must have 3 (three) warriors in
    the initiates class by the contest's 3rd turn.  (If they wish to compete, or can
    send in new team!)
5.  If you bloodfeud, you must use a different warrior each time to score the
    bloodfeud points.
6.  You must declare your team in the p-ads to be entered.
7.  A declared champion and scout cannot be the same warrior.
8.  Champions are not required (manager's choice)!  Champions must be declared on the
    first fight.

     We are also offering 25 bonus points to managers that submit a brief history (5
paragraph minimum) including your manager and team name by the contest's 3rd turn.
These points will be added to the scores on turn 211.
     Now, on to the scoring:  Wins + Kills - Losses = base score
                                     Base score + Variants = Total Score

WIN = +1 point
KILL = +1 point
LOSS = -1 point

SCOUT WIN = +2 points
SCOUT LOSS = -2 points
SCOUT DEATH = -5 points
CHAMPION WIN = +3 points
CHAMPION LOSS = -3 points

     Let's say (a) team goes 3-2-2 = 3 wins + 2 kills - 2 losses = +3 base score.
His champion won (+3 pts) and is style master for this turn (+1 pt).  His scout lost
(-2), for a total turn score of +5 points.
     Now, let's say (b) team goes 1-4-1 = 1 win + 1 kill - 4 losses = -2 pts.  His
fighting marvel of a scout won (+2 pts) and the scout's win was a successful
bloodfeud (+2 pts).  So, the total points for the turn would be +2 points.  (There
was no champion on this team.)

Now on to the prizes:

     1)  12 (Twelve) rollup gift certificates transferred to "Fratsfa's Best"
         ultimate victor.
     2)  Renaming of Fratsfa's arena for 6 (six) months.
     3)  Renaming of D.A. monsters: Wurmkin', Bandit Prince and Black Orc.
     4)  1 (one) favorites potion.*
     5)  1 (one) +1 bonus skill potion.**
