                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  A stormcloud is brewing over the MEOW MIX guildhouse.  Rumor says any 
more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming up with 
a solid 2-2-0 outing, SONS OF SATAN has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Drawing 
on all of his experience as a 8-4-1 warrior, SYLVESTER F. went for the Duelmastership 
against KITTY CHOWDER this week.  Well, everybody's pal KITTY CHOWDER moved hers 
record to 23-11-1 by defeating SYLVESTER F. in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 7 recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid GRIM FANDANGO, please raise you hand. 
Wow.  Does SUNSET really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause CARNAGE CANARIES beats feet every time GRIM FANDANGO 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of MIRANDA 
GRACE, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, MINOS went after MIRANDA GRACE, who was higher by 19 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, MINOS won victory over MIRANDA GRACE.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the SUNSET giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

St. Valentine's Day Massacre Update

     We are pleased to announce that the kLk sponsored St. Valentine's Day Massacre
kill contest in DM 36 is off to a great start.  We are also pleased to announce that
in addition to the 10 team rollups we are also able to offer the renaming of a dark
arena warrior as a prize to the manager with the most kills.  The contest is only 2
turns old and is still wide open.  There are currently 5 managers tied with one kill
each.  Anything can still happen so hurry up and get into the arena.
     On a personal note, no other alliances have entered the arena in force to
challenge the kLk dominance.  We were expecting The Firm to put up a fight for their
supposed home arena.  But, they were a no show.  Guess they proved what they are
really made of.  *evil grin*
     Perhaps another alliance would like to step in to give us a challenge.  We are
throwing down the gauntlet.  Perhaps the Chaos Inc. boys I keep hearing about would
like to step in and challenge the kLk for arena dominance.  If you don't show up,
Chaos, don't feel bad.  FAR better managers than you have been invited into Jhans but
have chosen to pass on the offer.
     So if you consider yourself worthy to compete, like fierce competition, and
enjoy arenas where the personals are as fierce as the fighting, come visit JHANS DM
36.  We're already planning our next contest, "Capture the Flag," and have a
storyline being actively worked on in the arena.  Whatever you like about DM you can
find it in JHANS.

     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"
is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
