                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SUNSET?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, CARNAGE CANARIES, since 
STORM WARNING took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  With any 
luck, I can sneak into Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill and join IRONIC TAILS' celebration 
over their good record this turn.  5th place, not bad.  Now keep the taverns open 
late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for MADE MEN, whose 0-5-0 this turn 
dropped them by 7 into 10th.  Ha!  Now let's all watch BLACKEST PRIDE's heads swell 
from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see SANTO STINKO win a fight and gain 22 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SANTO STINKO beat SARA DIVINE and SARA DIVINE lost 15 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  HURRICANE challenged SUNSET's Duelmaster for a 
shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, SUNSET may be getting 
bland, as JACKASS stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SUNSET, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  CARNAGE CANARIES the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BLACKEST PRIDE.  Ha ha ha ha!  
ORIGINAL STINK was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now look at this.  GINA TAILIA challenged down 24 
against STORM WARNING's UGLY FOG.  What a weasel!  Question now is, will SUNSET 
accept this sort of tacky behavior?  GINA TAILIA beating UGLY FOG.  The insult, 
the....yech!  I guess I can give a little credit to POTOMACC of GRIM FANDANGO for 
challenging up by 23 to JADE.  POTOMACC won to get 85 points of recognition.  And we 
have CLAW in a challenge, going down 14 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought 
CLAW showed great skill and promise when she won victory over ORIGINAL STINK.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And now a passing thought on a warrior 
dying young (PERSIAN FUR of MEOW MIX):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh 
well...  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  SNL, a glorious 3-5-0 fighter, has passed 
away.  Gee, too bad THAT 70'S TEAM.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Jackass -- I'm going to do the arena a favor and take the throne from you.  The
Sunset throne is much too prestigious an honor for the likes of you and your manager.
-- The Sickness

Alfredo -- Welcome back, brother; I hope you intend to stay awhile. -- Sylvester

I Magi -- Welcome to you as well.  It takes a lot of courage to come in wearing a
Merlin mask though.... -- Sylvester

Ironic Tails -- Welcome to the "Arena of Death." -- Blackest Pride

Stik -- Every time I look at the rankings you seem to be further down them.  What's
up with that? -- Sylvester

Solomon Bloodbane -- Pretty optimistic outlook considering the almost fatal beating I
gave you.  Anytime you feel like getting thrashed, just challenge. -- The Villain

Glimmor -- I will kill you before I graduate. -- Brand

C. Canary -- Nice run you've had with top team and DM honors!  I regrettably have to
inform you that it is over. -- Sylvester "I run this joint" Frothingslosh

Original Stink -- Nice come back.... -- Sheba

Frank Rizzo -- Welcome to Sunset.  Though I doubt you will go undefeated here.  If
memory serves, only one warrior ever did that here and that was Touch of Dosadi Prep.
In fact I believe he is still undefeated (not all that hard when you haven't fought
in 10 years). -- Sylvester

Sylvester -- If you saw my skill levels at graduation, you'd know why Stik didn't
bother fighting me in champs (and won't in freshmen for a while, either), and you'd
truly wonder why you lost to me multiple times as well! ;) -- Lord Protector
Bottinueau

Madam Butterfly -- My pardons for not thanking you for the nice batch o' skills you
imparted to me my last couple bouts.  Hopefully you'll make it outta here in one
piece some day, you deserve it! -- Lord Protector Bottineau

Abarsis, C. Canary and Klep -- You guys are KILLIN' me here!!  COME ON!!!!! -- Stik

Frank Rizzo -- Hey there, jerky meat!!  Finally decided to show your ugly mug in the
arena, eh?  Watch your back, fruity lips, no dulled tourney-edges on these
weapons.... -- Grim Fandango and the Bloodbanes

Mr. Twister -- Welcome to Sunset, I think it'll meet your expectations.  Just try to
keep it down with the uncanny stretches of blandness, all right?  Join us at the
Broken Bone after the duels, first round's on Rizzo! -- Stik, Grim Fandango and The
Bloodbanes

Stinkalogical -- I wouldn't mind the beating as much if you'd spread those learns and
ratings around a bit.... -- Carnal

Hurricane -- Thought I had you near the end, there.  We'll meet again, I'm sure! --
Potomacc

Tveden -- That was revolting.... -- Solomon Bloodbane

Baumgarten -- Nothing personal on the challenge, just had to see what you were made
of! -- Sonja B.

Fixer -- Thanks for the win and learns.  It was a lucky shot. -- One Man Swarm

Pork Rnd -- Let me replay this...tap, tap, tap, tap THEN BAMMMM.  And my lights are
out.  No terror or delight in that. -- Terror Delight

Rizzo!!! -- The name's Rizzo, right?  You're that tough chick from The Pink Ladies in
that play "Grease" right?  That's where you must have learned all that street
fighting from, huh?  With a veteran vs. novice with two 0-0-0 records, I'd say I
smelled a rat if you weren't gang related, right? -- Razor Melody

Ice Pick -- Tuff on Dand O.  Very respectable. -- Sloth Lightning

Marini -- Joe Nice. -- Glass Joe (cc: Mr. Twister)

Jackass -- Good fight.  I didn't expect you to come back in second minute.  I hope
you will grant me a rematch. -- Carnivorous Canary

Monsoon -- That sucked!  Thanks for the learns though. -- C. Canary

Stik -- I got you this turn.  I think I made up for losing to you the last two turns.
-- C. Canary

Sensei Jan -- Ditto what Sylvester Frothingslosh said!  Ha! -- C. Canary

Sheba -- Maybe we should have an arena rule that anyone I beat should go to the DA,
eh? -- Original Stink

Carnal -- I knew I could take you.  Now to paraphrase your teammate, I get all the
glory and the chicks. -- Stinkalogical

Sara Divine -- One little groin shot really set you off.  Jeez. -- Santo Stinko

Bottineau -- Hmm, of COURSE I was graceful, and quite NATURALLY I refused to beg for
mercy!  I, beg?  That would be beneath my dignity. -- Madam Butterfly
P.S.  You're too short, anyway.

Santo Stinko -- The secret, of course, is baking soda.  It is excellent, possibly
unsurpassed. -- Sara Divine

I Ate a Puty Tat -- How odd.  I have never found puty tats to be particularly
toothsome.  (Unlike the ambrosial teeny tats.) -- Rudi Jamos

Skull Splitter -- I'm still using my skull.  Go find some other one to split. -- Lugo
Beloski
P.S.  (twirls mustache)  Bwa ha ha.

One Eye -- Well, I must say that it seems to work for you.  But I still hold that
binocularism is superior. -- Miranda Grace

Sylvester -- Well, I did suspect I might be confused.  It's the heat.  I probably
won't have a coherent thought until the monsoon. -- Nick
P.S.  And maybe not then, as I don't do humidity well, either.

Mr. Twister -- What piercingly precise prophesy!  Welcome, and other things of that
neighborly nature. -- Nick, Sword Opera
P.S.  We are generally mediocre on the sands, but we'll do our best for the arena in
the personals.

Potomacc -- Nice fight, again!  But you know, those who can not learn from the past
are destined to repeat it.  At least you teach skills really well. -- Hurricane
P.S.  I'm embarrassed that Gale Force showed you all six crits with his weapon and I
only remembered five.

Gina T. -- Ouch.  You're very impressive with that thing.  I kept expecting you to
run out of gas but no such luck. -- Ugly

Jackass -- Congrats on the throne.  It's a good time to make hay while droves of
strikers are sitting out until the tourney, eh? -- Slaughter Priest for Storm Warning

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
     More info:  Master Darque, MasterDarqueDM@aol.com, or Jack Wolfspider,
russtulp@aol.com.  Or diplo Darque Forces (428) or Dynastic (433) in Arena 45.
