                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to THE MOONDOGS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SPRINGBORN 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for CYNICA, who flew up 24 points in the rankings 
after mashing MOTHBALL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MOTHBALL was subdued by CYNICA and drops 22 
points.  In front of all the crowds, WALDO took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  
I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the KOLACT arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the KOLACT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Nestor -- Sure it's a Viking name!  Just, well, the Southern Vikings!  Heck, two of
our graduates are named Chimborazo, after a mountain in South America, and Everest,
after, well, you can probably figure that one out.  It was a theme for a while.  As
for claiming distraction, you can claim whatever you wish. -- Kilimanjaro

Nestor -- But you get no such claim for our bout! -- Chagan

Springborn -- We wish we could stick around for a while, but experimentation
certainly describes what we are doing here.  Thanks for the welcome. -- Vikings

Sir Cophagus -- I don't normally refer to the DM as "sir" but you've got a touch and
a half with your weapon, sir. --Mothball

Lirvel Moorn -- Nice work, forever moorn. -- Waldo

Actaon -- Love them stats, good fellow.  The shell?  Oh, that's easy, hold it up to
your ear.  Not your rear, your ear. <crazy kid> (PH) -- Still

Cynica -- I wish I had your spirit.  Bad momma on the sands.  I just feel bad they're
not enjoying the contest. -- Wanda

Sir Cumference -- I just couldn't get around you, not even after thirteen laps. --
Actaon

Wanda -- Sorry not to have given you more of a workout, but we're all tired here.
This "grandmother" business is exhausting! -- Cynica

Waldo -- (weary wave)  More vitamins, that's what I need. -- Lirvel Moorn

Chagan -- (groggy look)  Huh?  There was a fight?  Sorry, I just didn't notice.
Gotta get some sleep. -- Nestor Ordh

Grimstone -- Strange to meet a dwarf who's short.  The Commission seems to go solely
by facial hair. -- Persea Quell

Ciric -- I've heard lemon juice and raw onions are good for rust.  Horrid thought,
isn't it? -- Cynica?  Whoever the "mystery answerer" is.

RSI is now taking rollups for a slow version of the No-Tournament arena.  Send your
rollup to RSI listing the arena as "Slow No Tournament".  Sign and send in the
following pledge:

* I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
  use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
* I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
  preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
* I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
* I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
  the Dark Arena until they are dead.
* I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to the
  Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena 

1.  No tournament play (Dead tournament or otherwise)
2.  One team per manager
3.  Team starts with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena
5.  20 teams required, per RSI
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead.)
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

Hammer will be the focal point for this arena's Player Committee.
