                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out MALCORN to see 
what's new.  MVP award for WOODEN ARROW?  GREENWARDENS' proud of him after beating 
JAVOR and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  JAVOR's match with WOODEN 
ARROW cost him a loss of 22 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most 
popular guy in all MALCORN.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) 
Like, MORTIKHAN must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from TRIPLE 
CROWN.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  LIL E. TEE stopped MORTIKHAN dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  TRIPLE CROWN was MALCORN's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what DARK CREATION's been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from TRIPLE CROWN, that's 
fer sher.  XANE REAVER must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged GREENGROVE.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought XANE REAVER showed great skill and promise when he was overcame by 
GREENGROVE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MALCORN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many 
people were snickering when BLACKWIND killed MAYFLOWER.  So she had a 9-7-0, that's 
no excuse!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  MALCORN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Go and Go -- Jeez!  Why even wear armor if you're not going to use it!? -- InDemos

     For the endorsement pay.

Greengrove -- So, Umm... You gonna pay for that shield? -- Forever

Charismatic -- Scum!!!  I hate you, I hate you, ARGHHH!!!!!  Okay, I feel a bit 
better. -- Blackwind

Xane Reaver -- Wow, would ya look at what a Halbard can do at that range.  Ouch!  
Better you than me. -- Mortikhan

Nya -- Next time it won't be your hand I'm slappin, it'll be your face!  Ooh, that 
sounds kinda Nancy like eh?  Aww, nevermind, won't matter too much anyways.  I'm 
outta here! -- Rotor

Oh, blah, Dangerous Criminal. -- Oakleaf

The Userous Merchant, whoopee-do. -- Wooden Arrow

Forever -- I'm sure that "forever" can be good, women seem to like it, but the thing 
is, I'm not a woman. -- Greengrove
P.S.  How about Forever and a Day, and I get to pick the day, such as... well,
payday, or a holiday, or midsummer's eve, or something really good?

I don't like spies, especially not Karnhorns.  So there. -- Mayflower

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team

at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
