                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SCIPIO AFRICANUS, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing 
TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was FLAVIUS MAXIMUS, who dropped 6 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with JUNO.  Well, everybody's pal ZERO THE HERO moved his 
record to 15-4-0 by defeating VETERAN MERCENARY in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 6 recognition points.  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 TOBIR arena.  And who is 
this BOWSER you ask, with 68 points and a 13-22-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could 
tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, VISIGOTH went after PUSSYFOOT, 
who was higher by 23 points.  Well, when the dust settled, VISIGOTH bested PUSSYFOOT. 
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, FLAVIUS MAXIMUS 
was mashed by JUNO, who let FLAVIUS MAXIMUS know that killing members of THE DOGHOUSE 
is a no-no.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter 
problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  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

The Thing -- One thing about small arenas is that a person's always meeting his old 
friends.  Every time he turns around, in fact.  It makes things, um, homey.  Familiar.  
Not very many surprises.  I suppose this is all to the good, but I could be wrong.  
After all, I was never brought up for that kind of thinking.  I'm just your basic 
model dog, bark at cats, the moon, and the occasional stranger, wag my tail for people 
I know, chew on slippers, that kind of thing. -- Bowser

Ambitious Guard?  Who does he think he is, this Ambitious Guard?  Why does he think he 
can come to OUR house?  We don't want him here! -- Honey Pup

The Arenamaster was disgusted?  How does he suppose *I* felt about it?  I hear a 
peddler at the door and come out prepared to bite the heck out of his ankles, and it's 

this "Honest Merchant" wringing his hands and claiming he was framed, he really is 
honest, please help him re-establish his reputation and business.  Pfaugh!  So I bit 
him.  Both ankles, hard.  What else could I do? -- Juno

Civilized, is he?  I don't know about THAT, but he's DEFINITELY a Criminal!  He tied a 
can to my tail! -- Pussyfoot

I dunno anything about Convincian Heroes.  Nobody told me to watch for them and give 
'em special treatment.  If they want me to give somebody special treatment, they've 
gotta TELL me, becoz I don't do thinking.  That ain't my job. -- Dim Hairy Thing

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 
     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 
     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.

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!
