                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of RIZTAB!  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 BLOODSUCKERS a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Up 'n down. 
Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, 
FOREIGN ACCENTS' 2nd moved them up to 3-2-0 place.  DOOM LEGION showed RIZTAB what 
they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  RIZTAB's 
got someone new to push around.  C'mon everyone, challenge TEAM MARIO.  Let's see how 
long they last.  What's with INVINCIBLE LUIGI?  He actually beat FOREIGN ACCENTS' 
EDGAR ALLEN POKE, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were 
big at TEAM MARIO while they watched INVINCIBLE LUIGI clobber EDGAR ALLEN POKE.  He 
lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure RIZTAB 
is excited about FAST TRACK, the new Duelmaster from SPIRITUAL GIFT.  (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...  The most avoided team 
was ARENA FELINES.  In my day, no team with a 664-495-63 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, TEAM GNASTY?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, CHRISTINE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  IVY of 
DRYNN'S PRETTIES knows how to pick 'em.  She challenged BROPHY of DOOM LEGION who is 
up by 25.  Now was this a wise move?  IVY perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as 
she was subdued by BROPHY and ended up with 30 recognition points.   
     Warriors of RIZTAB unite.  You have only your games to lose!  KAMEANANANAMOE of 
DREAMERS didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 3-9-0, that's a good sign.  Now 
he's dead.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Whatta party.  Highballs and cocktails. (cover both ends)  And we're topping them off

Sugar Jane -- It surrounded you.  It is a formidable weapon. -- Tonya

Cat Scan -- A bit of a discrepancy in age, but you taught as you took.  Course a
win's a win. -- Wax

Chainsaw Vigilante -- Zzza-dent, fer real.  That sploppin you on the head with my
oatmeal at Crazy Mary's last month.  So...what...wasn't enough sugar and cream for
you? -- Badger

Dreb 3 -- Then go FIGHT a mime. -- Noreen
P.S.  In a bathtub, for all I care.
P.P.S.  Okay, not your fault, but we really need new sentences.  After all, even if
everybody sent in custom sentences, we'd STILL be seeing the old worn-out ones a lot
of the time.
P.P.P.S.  Aren't you a little SHORT to be Shewish?

Satanic Snoopy -- Great name, given your team name.  But I was not so thrilled by the
way you tried to chew me in two.  In fact, I'd go so far as to say that my earnest
desire and life-long ambition is to remain in one. -- Tillerita
P.S.  If I wasn't an Orc and therefore very tough, I might've died of that dog bite,
and I don't WANT to die of a dog bite.  It's un-Orcish.  WE are supposed to be the
ones doing the biting, you know?

Twangy Tonya -- It's a little embarrassing to be defeated by somebody who starts OUT
failing wildly. -- Sugar Jane
P.S.  Were those twangs the sounds of your strings breaking and whipping around?

Kant -- You just need more practice, then you will find that you Kan. -- Alourin
P.S.  Well, I'm a gladiator, you didn't REALLY expect heavy thoughts from me, did
you?  A pun, and I admit it's groaningly obvious, is the best I can manage today.

Kameanananamoe -- Ah, Hawaiian, are you?  Um, perhaps you should go surfing instead
of coming to the arena?  I know there isn't much surf on the lake, but I'm sure
something could be contrived magically.  After all, Surfer Sam says they do it in
Bonsur. -- Autumn Leaves
P.S.  Just a suggestion, lose the feather cloak.  It looks great but isn't much use
turning blows.

                            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
