                                      SPY REPORT

     On Turn 501, BRICKTOP of WASTELAND took the throne.  He held it for two turns,
until he received his invitation, when he passed it to his teammate BULMA.  BULMA has
held the throne for an impressive 3 turns, but also received an invitation to
Advanced Duelmasters.  This turn was his final fight.  BULMA matched up with
ADELAIDE, but ADELAIDE's hopes were squashed in less than a minute.  GOHAN, of
course, had a great lead in recognition and merely needed to win to continue JOLLY's
stranglehold on the throne.  A fight with PREBIRTH was all that was necessary and
WASTELAND has its third warrior in a row in the top spot.  Next turn, however, the
reign will end, as GOHAN will be leaving our arena as well, honored with an
invitation to the Isle of the Eye.  But while JOLLY can't pass the throne to another
teammate, I'm sure he'd be more than satisfied to pass the throne to an alliance-
mate.  BARBU of BIG MEAN FISH has a 18 point recognition lead going into next turn,
assuming GOHAN wins.
     There are nine warriors recognized as the top warrior of their style.  What
about the tenth style?  Well, since CORAL BEAUTY graduated, no warrior has risen to
take that spot.  And without a leader, it seems they have gone from bad to worse.
Last turn, they went 3-4.  This turn, however, it was a winless 0-7.  Someone had
best rise up soon or they will be bringing up the rear in the ten turn ranks.  And I
can think of no better way to rise up successfully than to make downchallenges.  Lots
of them.  Every turn, I report on the challenging statistics.  And more often than
not, the recognition point story tells the results.  This turn was no exception.
Warriors that challenged down in recognition went 10-2.  Warriors that challenged up
in recognition went 4-10.  I've heard more than one say that recognition points are
silly, but the points must mean something because turn after turn, down challengers
do considerably better than up challengers.  It is by no means an instant win, of
course, but it seems that your chances, at least according to past statistics, are
dramatically improved by challenging down, rather than up.  But, as I said, it does
not ensure success.  Take poor DOC SIK. V.I., who went down 9 recognition points in
hopes of an easy win against H.H. HOLMES.  Not only did DOC lose, he was killed.  But
maybe that story is more about fighting healthy warriors rather than sick ones.
Three others were killed.  SLOW MOTION was slain by BERCHTA in a one point up
challenge by BERCHTA.  MALKO was butchered by YAHIROBE in 4 minutes.  Finally,
BARITUS went down 9 points to kill a veteran, CRESCENT SNAPPER.  Three warriors
attempted bloodfeuds this turn, but only one was successful.  A'AMON avenged the
death of SKRAW, easily defeating killer SASSY SANDY.
     Enough about that stuff, let's get to the juicy stuff.  MR THIRD TIME's streak
has ended.  Sure, he remains one of the hottest warriors, but his winning ways were
cut off.  You might think that the 11-0 warrior was finally matched up with a highly
ranked warrior.  You might think that someone challenged him, knowing his weaknesses.
You might think that he matched up with an equally impressive undefeated warrior.
Not so!  He matched up with VOICES, a 1-4-1 warrior ranked at 15 recognition points.
It took 3 minutes, but the deed is done and MR THIRD TIME is now 11-1.  Also losing
his first was HK-47, but his loss did come at the hands of a higher ranked warrior,
namely CHARNEL.  A'AMON, FREE PORN, DR KNUCKLES, HEXALUS, and BETTIE BROWNIE all have
intact undefeated streaks.  The other warriors on the hottest warrior list are GOHAN
and BARBU at 9-1 and PLANKWALKER at 7-3.
     Unfortunately, I cannot make my tournament picks this time out.  They would have
been great picks and I'm sure had I done them, I would have done better than ever
before, but not this time.  Good luck to all those who participate in the tournament.
Do Talcama proud as those in the past have done Talcama proud.  CRESCENT SNAPPER was
the most challenged warrior and we've already heard about his demise.  Only 4 avoids
were issued this turn from two warriors, with not team earning more than 1 avoid.  29
warriors moved up a recognition class while 7 warriors dropped down a class.
     The last news which gets my attention is GET OUTTA MY WAY and UNTOUCHABLES both
going 4-1 on the turn.  Both their losses were Dark Arena fights, so that is all the
more impressive.  It was FLOYD's crew, though, that earned a free fight by edging out
ANGUS' crew by a single recognition point gain to win the Team on the Move award.
That's it because I must run the Battle Royal scoring program.

Attention Assur -- I just received my DM 18 newsletter for T-504 on Friday, March 25,
2005.  Please note that the fight between TOKER V.I. and AIM TO BURN HAMMER was NOT
figured into the scoring!  This means that Hammer should have received a 3-2-0 +1
score = -5 for the contest; while Goat should have received a 1-3-0 -2 score = -3 for
the contest.  I reported this on the RT, but was NOT certain that last cycle was
credited for the WIN.  Thanks Assur and I am in this contest for the long haul NO
Matter how dismally my stable performs! -- Hammer
P.S.  I am alive and well and plan to stay over here in spite of the recent car
bombing that killed a British expatriate and injured several others.  The English
teacher I know is fine after taking two days off from the ringing in his ears after
the wall behind his seat at the theatre was blown away by the car bomb blast!

TDH -- This is what I enjoy!  Luck on one doesn't mean a second will follow.  Good
luck. -- Dark Knight Toker
P.S.  So, this is for you and me?

Dave -- Thought you had me, huh?  More experience doesn't always mean a better
warrior.  Good fight, though! -- Baritus

Asmodel -- Again!  I guess I don't want to see you soon.  Good challenge, pax tecum.

                                    The Contract
                         [as retold by Hammer the WordSmith]
     What had begun as a contract for swords and armor between a well known name in
the DM community and the former VC Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe was destined to impact and altar the landscape of the dueling
community for years to come.
     The following is but a condensed retelling of history in the making.

    Hammer continued sipping his tankard of Elven Tonic as the mysterious hooded
figure quietly seated himself across the table from the Veteran Manager whose back
was against the wall; allowing for a subtle, but effective surveillance of the dimly
lit tavern.
     Recent events in both Illis and North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena had stunned the DM
managerial world with the announcement that Hammer had resigned from his position as
a well respected member of the Vendetta Cartel Alliance.
     Those managers and associates closest to Hammer were shocked and dismayed that
there seemed to be NO Rational Explanation for Hammer making such a seemingly
irrational, hasty and extremely illogical decision; by what seemed to be a spur of
the moment reaction following the Declaration of War by Hammer in the DM 47 P-ads.
     This is what stirred the mysterious hooded figure to seek Hammer with a request
that would change the managerial course of both men; ultimately Rocking the
Managerial World of Alastari as a result of the forthcoming decisions reached by the
two Veterans.
     Time passed swiftly as both Veteran Managers discussed how the landscape of the
DM game on the sands of Alastari had changed over the years both in Basic and Tourney
play; producing a new breed of managers who would of necessity band together in an
alliance with a common goal; waging war against antagonists while improving the
managerial skills of each participating member in their glorious quest for DM
excellence.
     Hammer listened intently as his unexpected guest inquired about the situation in
North Fork/SCOMSS Swamp Arena; revealing his desire to participate in the upcoming
Turf War 4 contest in DM 47 with an alliance that would accept him on a more
permanent basis other than for just fighting together as a TW4 alliance to win fame
and Gift Certs.
     Here was a Veteran Manager, seeking the advice of Hammer regarding an alliance
to join on a permanent basis; plus extending a sword arm of friendship and requesting
that Hammer join him as an alliance mate with those who would welcome their
membership.
     The Iron in the Words of Hammer had produced this opportunity as a result of the
recent conflicts witnessed first hand by the manager seated across the table from
Hammer.  This Veteran Manager had been secretly searching and scouting around
Alastari for someone worth his mettle to fight alongside; someone who would know
where to find the perfect gang of rebels who were unafraid of waging war against
anyone.
     Hammer knew exactly where to look and in a matter of days the two newcomers were
welcomed into the ranks of a group of managers who received them as war waging equals
in an alliance that had joined a Confederation of Alliances for the TW4 contest.
     Fighting under the banner of The Illuminati Confederation of Alliances alongside
members of Chaos Inc, kLk and The Company of Brothers during the TW4 was more than
either of the two Veteran Managers had envisioned a few months ago.
     Hammer was now entering a new journey with a new attitude.
     Perhaps you readers may have noticed that new attitude by now since this
announcement by Hammer is uncharacteristically Exclamation Point Free.
     Except for the famous quote by Hammer at the end of this announcement.
     Now that Hammer and the Mysterious Hooded Figure have agreed to join forces with
an alliance whose members have welcomed them enthusiastically; let those who desire
to be antagonistic be forewarned as to the identities of these newly welcomed wagers
of war:

Tripwire
kLk Bringer of Pain

Hammer
kLk WordSmith and WeaponSmith
Minister of War
Illuminati Idealist

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I
