                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RIZTAB?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, WANDERING MONSTERS, since 
THE CITY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for THE LAWMEN, whose 1-4-0 
this turn dropped them by 6 into 11th.  Ha!  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see DIRTY LINENS win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DIRTY LINENS 
beat SLAPAHO and SLAPAHO lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as CROUCHING TIGER stays top dog 
in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some 
of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  BLOODSUCKERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was POWERPUFF GIRLS.  Ha ha ha ha!  FELINE GRIN 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to BASS REEVES of THE LAWMEN 
for challenging up by 19 to SNARLING GNOLL.  BASS REEVES lost to get 33 points of 
recognition.  And we have FREAKY BARBER in a challenge, going down 9 points for the 
fight.  Guess what?  I thought FREAKY BARBER showed great skill and promise when he 
subdued FELINE GRIN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  It's about time SCOOBY DOOM got beat for picking on warriors 
like KANT.  Bravo, DREAMERS.  See you at The Warty Toad.  Honor is like a chainmail 
shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me 
on this one.   
     What does the RIZTAB arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Judge Parker -- Now that was a heck of a duel!  Well done! -- Sauron

Feline Grin -- You know, I ever learn I can beat you you're gonna be in a world a
hurt.  Cause then I'm targetin vitals. -- Tonya
P.S.  It's the skills, kid.  You'd die, you know.

Fasttrack -- A groaner.  Not to look back on. -- Badger

Satanic Snoopy -- Got mine, how a-bout you? -- Fen

Brophy -- The Jinks n' Legion, showin the crowd how'd'a go about gettin rabble-
roused. -- Dan
P.S.  We's unsnarlin a few yards a night-crawlers, ya in?

Bat Manuel -- The exceptions of an exceptional weapon in the hands of an exceptional
fighter.  It's a fog-becalmed diversion. -- Wax Hostile

Hamster Girl -- I thought, when you rolled out onto the sands in that wheel thing,
that you were being ridiculous, maybe taking your arena name to extremes.  Then you
rolled right over me.... -- Noreen
P.S.  Why should the audience scream approval?  I've never given them reason to hate
me!  They can't come to our pool party if they're going to be like that!

Dave Cook -- Remind me not to go to Colorado!  I don't enjoy the company of long-
winded men. -- Alourin
P.S.  I don't have a big brother, or I WOULD send him to fight you.
P.P.S.  How about a Shewish cousin?

Gratch -- Where'd YOU come from?  Gods, this arena is just FILLING UP with
troublemakers! -- Sugar Jane
P.S.  Definition of troublemaker:  Someone who defeats me and destroys my winning
record.

Shelli -- Well, you ARE a pretty one.  Not a pretty LITTLE one, of course, but I've
seldom seen a Shewish woman with such delicate wrists and shoulders....  Hmm, that

COULD be a problem in the arena.  Have you considered a career as a barmaid, instead?
No, they have to carry heavy trays.  How about a seamstress? -- Autumn Leaves,
feeling helpful

Sadie -- Damn you short Shews!  It's unfair.  (What if I have long toes?)  You've got
all the strength and speed necessary to move a huge body around, and it's crammed
into that little tiny package.  What it can do to an opponent is a sin and a crying
shame. -- Tillerita
P.S.  Good (ouch!) fight.

Most challenged?  Me?  Gee, whatever did I do to deserve that?  Oh... my record?  5-
27-0, you think that's some kind of "come-on"?  Well, I'm TRYING to fix it!  You
could all HELP, you know.  You could LOSE to me. -- Noreen

Menacing Troll -- Gosh, they didn't make YOU do the dishes, did they? -- Alourin the
concerned friend

All -- I'd like to introduce myself and thank you warriors that gave my boys (and
girl) a lesson in real combat!  Until now most of their defeats came from scummers.
The welcome we got here was a slap in the face.  Anyway I am known as The Goat.  No,
no, of course I'm not a goat.  That's just what they call me.  Something about eating
tin cans and headbutting, who knows. -- The Goat, mgr. Doom Legion

The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a

                            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
