                                      SPY REPORT

     It was a good day to be resurrected and all three of Talcama's recent Dead
Challenger TV's were listed in today's newsletter.  MEET DEATH was actually
resurrected last turn, but fought this turn.  Also active on the sands this turn was
CORAL BEAUTY.  Both of these warriors won their fights.  DRACO MALFOY was listed this
turn, but did not fight.  MEET DEATH's victory awarded him 59 recognition points
making him by far the strongest contender for the throne next turn (and single-
handedly gave INANIMATE TOFU the Team on the Move award).
     On the throne itself, LE PAIN DLG was seen preparing heavily last week for the
two active Challenger Champions, MARY and BRICKTOP.  When these two were announced to
be fighting each other, LE PAIN DLG did not know what to do!  He ended up losing to
the lowest ranked champion in a fight he was clearly not prepared to fight.  SALT
will have his work cut out for him to maintain his position on top.  The loss, while
not causing LE PAIN DLG to move off the hottest warrior list, did cause a two class
recognition drop and Talcama's throne continues to be dominated by short reigns (two
turns or less).  SALT, while not qualifying for the hottest warrior list, is unbeaten
in his last 7 fights.
     There are two new hot warriors standing on the sands!  BARBU of the BIG MEAN
FISH and SINDARION of the UNTOUCHABLES both find themselves at 7-3 over the last ten
turns.  They join an elite list which currently includes LE PAIN DLG, GROBRAUM, and
DAVE (who are all also 7-3 over the last ten turns).
     No stable was able to win 4 fights this turn.  17 warriors moved up a
recognition class while 6 dropped down a class (or two).  No deaths this turn other
than in the Dark Arena, where there were 13 deaths from 8 teams.  The real surprise
was SULDAR, who I forgot to report last turn was able to kill a Dark Champion during
the food fight.  He had available the same arsenal of weapons last turn as the rest
of those in the Dark Arena, but surprised the Dark Champion by being particularly
vicious with a serving spoon.  I don't know what weapon he carried into the arena
this turn, but the High Elf was not surprised and SULDAR was not victorious.
     8 Warriors made 15 avoids towards 10 teams this turn.  WASTELAND was avoided 3
times (more than any other team).  Two of those avoids came from PENARCHIE-18
warriors.  The most challenged warrior this cycle was the youngster TIBERIUS.
LONGSHOT got his challenge through and won the fight.  As is so often the case, down-
challengers did well with a 5-3 record and up-challengers did poorly with a 3-6
record.  The even-challenger lost.
    Before I go, I must report on the undefeated streaks currently going on.  I am
not very consistent at reporting these, but I will try harder.  LEONIDAS has started
his career with a stellar 7-0 record.  Another win or two and he'll have a real test
to keep it going as he'll be a champion by then.  STU PENDOUS has carried his 5-0 up
into the Adepts class.  Down in the Initiates class, there are BIP and LONGSHOT who
are both respectably 3-0, but the warrior to watch is MR THIRD TIME who is 4-0 with
only 15 recognition points.  By simply repeating his performance, he could be 8-0
with 30 recognition points!  See you next turn! -- Sherik, your spy reporter!

All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct
and up to date.  Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your
updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com.  As you may guess, replace the
at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the
web).

I have information on the following alliances:  ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada,
Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of
Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson
Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ,
Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk,
Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and
Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of
Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection,
Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel.

If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know.  If you are a member of
some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know.  If you were at any point in your
past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know.
Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to
still be in the same alliance when they return.  Even having everyone in an alliance
go inactive doesn't change anything.  If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's
another thing you have to let me know....

The Saint, keeper of lists

P.S.  If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore
this.

                       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:
     (P-ad declarations in parenthesis)
     [Manager name/Stable name in brackets] followed by their last known W/L

     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.

Popularity Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as This

     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
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.
