                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in TOBIR. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  THE DEATH SQUAD 
is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 2nd place.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for ANDILLIA, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after 
mashing TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was HONEY PUP, who dropped 10 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with VISIGOTH.  THE THING got through to the 
Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick SCARBOROUGH's tail 
out of the throne!  In front of all the crowds, THE THING took the Duelmaster's crown 
for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, 
just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TOBIR arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad I BENT MY WOOKIE?   Big bad I BENT MY 
WOOKIE.  Big bad I BENT MY WOOKIE.  TOBIR's afraid of the big bad I BENT MY WOOKIE.  
Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  I BENT MY WOOKIE + 
Weapons That go Boom = THE DEATH SQUAD + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants 
a piece of BOWSER, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

All right, all right, we're late with these.  It's next month already.  What can I 
say?  We ate too much. -- Leeta, The Doghouse

Dead Man Walking -- Well, I wish you'd stand still sometimes.  It'd make you easier 
to hit. -- Juno

Visigoth -- THAT should teach you not to sack... uh, wherever it was you sacked.  
Iberia?  Or was that the Vandals, and you sacked Rome?  Anyway, don't do it again. -- 
Bowser
P.S.  Next time, use a box.  Sacks are too flimsy.  And when they tear, your loot 
falls out.

"I Wet My Bed!" -- Sheesh, you BOAST about it?  If you don't watch out, someone
will rub your nose in it and then toss you out the door. -- Honey Pup

Rick Jones -- That was TOTALLY uncalled for! -- Ghost of Pussyfoot

Cheulian Asri, Chief Spokesman for the Beggars' Guild -- Um, maybe we should've 
warned you about the Dim Hairy Thing, so you could warn your beggars.  He doesn't 
like them.  It doesn't make a bit of difference how polite they are, because he 
wouldn't recognize polite if it bit him, so the best thing is just to steer clear. -- 
Daisy January

Current stuff--

Haywood Jab -- I could kiss you.  Even with a single-digit WT, the replacement is 
smarter than the Dim Hairy Thing was.  Everyone on the team will be grateful. -- 
Daisy January, acting as site manager for The Doghouse P.S.  Compared to the Dim 
Hairy one, Dain Bramage, that sweet boy, is a mental giant.

Scarborough -- Gosh, that's hardly "faire." -- Bowser
P.S.  I don't know what that's supposed to mean.  Leeta thought it was amusing,
though, and as long as she's amused, she isn't being mean to me.

It would appear that the Veteran Mercenary knows what he's doing.  Ouch. -- Juno

Obnoxio -- Ha!  Any decent dog knows how to handle someone like YOU!  A bite, a
slash, maybe a claw or two.... -- Honey Pup

The Thing -- Eh?  You've gone inactive!  Why...?  Oh, the winter tourney?  Are you 
coming to that?  We only go as spectators, but if you're there, we'll cheer for you. 
-- The Doghouse

Dead Man Walking -- Now you've lost me completely. -- Juno the genuinely confused

Visigoth -- But you aren't a bug, so how could I squash you like one?  I could maybe 
squash you like a visigoth, if you want. -- Bowser
P.S.  Dogs tend to be literal-minded, you know.

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,
depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer
500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.
     On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a
Graduate will win 2 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of
Hammer!
     Additional Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Gift Cert Prizes:
     Five (5) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager whose warrior claims the
Duelmaster Throne on T-500.
     Two (2) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
as the highest Active Challenger Champion, Champion, Challenger Adept, Adept,
Challenger Initiate and Initiate on T-500.
     In the event that NO Duelmaster is seated upon the Duelmaster Throne on T-500
there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are
tied for recognition points at the Top of the Challenger Champions recognition
standings.  [Therefore, the Top CC will be awarded 3 Gift Certs instead of 2 for
being ranked as the highest CC on T-500].
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) graduate on
T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) receive
their graduation announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
in the Top Warrior Of Each Style newsletter announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the
Chartered Recognition Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the
Unchartered Recognition Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the
Popularity Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as This
Week's Favorite on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as The

Top Career Honors Chartered Team on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the
Top Career Honors Unchartered Team on T-500.
     SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED
STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to

Battle Royal 4
     The Battle Royal arena contests are one of the purest tests of manager skill
available. The rules are simple.  The scoring is simple.  The updates are live.  If
you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.
