                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TOBIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SHOWSTOPPER?  He actually 
beat THE DOGHOUSE's TIPAR KUROO, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at TOBIR while they watched KUNG-FU MASTER clobber ENCLOPLASMIC.  He 
lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  CHICHI-HOOEY was 
reminded on the sands why GOLGI APPARATUS is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  E COLI looked pretty sick and surprised when he 
learned BIO WARFARE is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 7-9-1?  
Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Golgi Apparatus -- Yeah, yeah, I know, I heard.  All the cutting edge and stuff.
(wince)  I did notice the "cutting edge" part.  I didn't like it, though. -- Andillia

Enclopasmic -- Well, it still sounds to me like you're talking with your mouth full
of oreos. -- Chichi-Hooey
P.S.  You do know what oreos are, don't you?  Even a dwarf should know!  They're
those orange and blue birds.  Very flashy, maybe even garish.  But some people like
them.

Red Blood Cell -- I hope they lock you up in one. -- Gerbent

100% -- You dwarves do have strange names.  I guess if that's what makes your tail
wag, go for it. -- Scruff

Showstopper -- Huh, I'd think if anyone could half-step, it'd be a half-elf. -- Tipar
Kuroo

And this is hail and farewell from us to you, as my notes indicate that you will be
starting your contest in the next turn or two.  Since I don't do contests, I leave
you to it.  May you enjoy yourselves hugely. -- Leeta, The Doghouse

In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the
Turf War 5.  Whoever sent this to me...please email me at rbaphomets@yahoo.com.
Thanks.

     The Quest of the Best has come to an end.  Dark Knight Toker, host of the Quest,
wants to proclaim the Ultimate Victor and give a listing of prize winners.
     Lady Fern and her Flower Girls of the Consortium are the Ultimate Victors of the
Quest.  Well fought and there's nothing like coming from behind to leave us all in
the dust.  Can't wait to see you defend your title! (wink)
     Here is a complete list of managers who placed in prize positions:

1)  Lady Fern, mgr. Flower Girls
2)  Le Pentarque, mgr. Blood & Guts!
3)  Crip, mgr. Otto's Parts
4)  D.K. Heathen Hatebred, mgr. Odin's Chosen
5)  Ghab, mgr. Assassin Nation
6)  Fanthayne, mgr. Dark Raiders
7)  D.K. Toker, mgr. Silver Knights
8)  D.K. Wasby, mgr. Bronze Knights
9)  The Expatriate, mgr. Bleak Legion
10) Still the Distilled, mgr. Springborne Fair

     Thanks to all that had the gall to show up, but I really want to thank the
managers that had the mettle to survive and not run when they started getting their
butt handed to them.
                                                           Respect to All.
                                                           Quest #1 host,
                                                           Dark Knight Toker
