                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SUNSET a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as GRIM FANDANGO is pushed out of top team by COSMIC FREAK OUT, who came 
from 3rd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for IRONIC TAILS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 
16th.  SWORD OPERA stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 5 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 10th place.  Good work, guys!  C. CANARY has lost 
to GINA TAILIA, falling 18 points, while helping make CARNAGE CANARIES a 2-3-0 turn.  
We should ask I SEE SOUNDS about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, it's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill uses trolls in 
their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the SONS OF SATAN stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SUNSET, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided SONS OF SATAN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was CARNAGE 
CANARIES.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was THAT 70'S 
TEAM's warrior BELL BOTTOMS.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, I SEE SOUNDS from COSMIC FREAK OUT challenged up 20 
points to fight RONALD REAGAN from the SONS OF SATAN stable.  I SEE SOUNDS perhaps 
got its just desserts, seeing as it subdued RONALD REAGAN and ended up with 103 
recognition points.  DRANE of GRIM FANDANGO had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 15 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought DRANE showed great 
skill and promise when he bested MINAMI KAZE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in SUNSET, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in SUNSET again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Stik -- Desecration bombed in the Contenders tournament at like 1-4 or something.  The

P.S.  Yes, you all need to refer to me as Ultraist again.

after you and then you just put your hand on his head and hold him at arms length 
while he swings pitifully and harmlessly away at you as you laugh at him??  Yeah, it 
was a lot like that. -- Drane, reigning Scum Supreme

you know what I think of that whole thing! -- Skydancer

Manager of "The Clan" -- Dude, you should write personals more often, they're so 
entertaining!  Only thing that irks me about your whole laughable tirade was the fact 
that you're a veteran manager here and you're whining about a 21 point downchallenge??  
You're in Sunset!  Not Solven, not Amen-Tai.  You have been for a while.  Take a look 
around... yeah, Delarquan arena, that's right.  Is it sinking in yet??  Besides that, 
your guy had 21 FE to my 13 (Skydancer has no tourney experience), I'd hardly call 
that a giant mismatch.  And why now freak out about a challenge?  I've been 
challenging you up, down, and sideways forever and you've never said a word.  I see 
you're attempting the same little game with a team in Willaf, as well.  Good luck with 
that, I'm sure he's shakin', too.  Most likely he'll either ignore you totally or 
crush you utterly.  For your sake hope it's the former.  As for me, I have no big beef 
with you unless you continue to hurl pointless and dimwitted insults at me.  Even 
then, it's really just mildly amusing, now that I think about it...(yawn)...do your 
worst! -- Stik and Grim Fandango, standing by...
P.S.  It helps when you declare war on another stable if you actually run a full one 
yourself, and not just the losers.  Little tip there.

All -- No Duelmaster?!?!??  In SUNSET?!???  Come on, you guys at the top, somebody 
kill someone and grab that throne! -- Stik

All again -- Not that I'm any less guilty lately, but we're turning into the usual 
"Lungerville/Total Parry Town" type of arena here!  Let's use some imagination with 
those new recruits, guys! -- Stik

YES, top team is mine all mine once again!!  Hey, it doesn't happen that often, so let 
me live a little, OK??  MUWAHAHAHAHA, MINE ALL MINE!!!!  One free fight, I love it!!!! 
-- Stik

     These three ads ended up in the wrong arena and may have been intended to run 
     last turn. -- Ed.

Stella Artois -- Gutsy move.  You gotta be proud of that. -- Liquid Goliath

Super Friends -- Nice job.  I always liked the Justice League vs. The Legion of Doom 
myself. -- Plump Friction

Blak Mask -- Drat!  I didn't want to run into from what I've heard. -- Pepper Bandit

Inertia -- (look of pained surprise)  I call that cunning of you:  Take the first blow 
(which I permitted because I'm a gentleman, whether you're a lady or not)....  Where 
was I?  Oh, right, you take the first blow (and a painful one it was, too!) and... 
right!  And then you just keep the momentum, the "inertia" of violence, if you will, 
and keep right on going.  You didn't give me any chance for an EXCHANGE of blows in 
the civilized fashion. -- Rudi Jamos, whose feelings are hurt as much as his body, but 
his writing hand is fine

Asylum -- Look at what you did!  My fans fell silent!  That's the first step toward 
desertion, and well you know it, you wretched woman.  And you PLANNED for it!  I can 
tell, why else would you come out nearly naked, FLAUNTING yourself in the briefest of 
chain-mail bikinis?  It's a plot to steal my fans, a plot, I say! -- Ace

Pepper Bandit -- (sneezing briskly twice)  You don't HAVE a tail, so how can it be 
ironic?  This is a serious question, mind you, which has been keeping me awake at 
night and thus interfering with my practice routines and arena performance. -- John 
Darling the insomniac

Poison Beak -- (sadly)  So, this is what it comes to.  I labor not to kill any more of 
you delicate birds, and you TURN on me.  You peck at me viciously.  You strike me with 
your wings.  How can I bear this avian hostility? -- Lugo Beloski

Lillian Lust -- YOU are nobody's son, and I want you to know how GLAD that makes me. 
-- Djininski

So!  You are all so determined not to write a Duel2Dude's column that you refuse the 
throne?  Piffling. -- Madam Butterfly

Blevins -- You want .500?  Enjoy it while you have it, then get over it.  You are 
DOOMED. -- Ace the ungracious

Skydancer and Dazey of Grim Fandango -- What do I care about other members of MY 
gender?  It's yours that rivets my attention. -- a salacious Ace

Re: a new act of the Sword Opera.  Not quite yet.  First, a vacation! -- Nick

RSI Staff -- Stunned that you would even seriously consider such uneven match-ups as 
Heretic vs. Momoro Wa (37 pts to 25 pts) or Drane vs. Metaru Yona (57 pts to 35 
pts!!).  When do we get off this ridiculous points system??  When are you going to 
realize such a system continues to demonstrate, time and time again, that it's an 
abject failure??  You cannot have an effective fighting sytem that is supposed to show 
warrior skills and techniques as long as it is so heavily dependent upon your failed 
points system.  The skills in which a warrior attains become meaningless in the face 
of your methodology.  

     !?  Uneven?  Abject failure?  At 37 vs 25?!  Um, did you lose? -- Ed.

Stik and Razor Melody -- Thanks for the comments.  I keep forgetting to do a column.  
Ah well, maybe next time.  I Ate A Puty Tat was from my original rollup for my team 
back in the 90's.  With him in retirement I can now look for a better replacement.  
His stats are 16(+1)-12(+1)-11-14(+1)-16-5-13, Broadsword, Low/Very Low. 

Reagan -- Will you die already. -- Cat Kabob

Super Host -- Super lame fight. -- C. Canary

                            Invitation to Newbie Managers
                                      by Hammer

     As a Captain of the Vendetta Cartel, Hammer has recently dissolved the Vendetta 
Cartel Crimson Ascension Family.  Lady Martilyo and Rook are NO LONGER members of the 
Vendetta Cartel.
     The Vendetta Cartel is divided into "Families" under the leadership of Captains; 
who have been appointed by the VC God Father known throughout the duelingland as 
Master Darque.
     Hammer is now the Captain of the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe and the veteran 
manager extends an invitation for prospective membership as a Probate [ONLY 2 Probate 
positions are available in the VC Tarantula Tribe at the present time!] to any Newbie 
Manager who qualifies under the following conditions:
     1. Newbie Manager MUST have Online Access for Email communications!   [Hammer is 
presently living in Qatar and Lieutenants Maximillian and Firehawk are  living in 
Canada; so Email Communication is a MUST for consideration!]
     2. Newbie Manager MUST have the time and funds to create 2 new  stables to be 
placed in 2 separate Slow Arenas [the cost of running 1 stable in a  Regular Arena!] 
to actively participate on a monthly basis with the other 3 T-Tribe  members of the 
Vendetta Cartel!
     3. Newbie Manager MUST have the DESIRE to be an Active Member of the  Vendetta 
Cartel as a Tarantula Tribe trainee aka Probate; developing his/her managerial skills 
under the mentorship of Hammer and the other VC members; thus proving themselves 
worthy to become Vendetta Cartel Lieutenants in the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe!
     The Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe lives by the Feud; thereby prospective 
Probates are forewarned that membership guarantees instant Friends and instant 
Enemies!
     Any prospective Probates who:
     1) seek to improve their managerial insights/abilities under the counsel of 
Hammer and other Vendetta Cartel members 
     2) desire to be active members of an Active Alliance that WILL NOT Dissolve in a 
Few Months; building lasting friendships while enjoying Feuding with Common Enemies 
     3) who enjoy sending their gladiators to Tournaments and would strive to see 
their manager name listed among the TV and TC winners in the Mailer Tourney 
Newsletters as a member of the Vendetta Cartel 
MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
     Send an Email to HammerDM@fastermail.com to introduce yourself and provide Hammer 
with a short Bio of your managerial successes/failures and favorite/least favorite 
fighting styles; with a listing of your active stable/stables for Hammer to verify in 
the online newsletters.
     Hammer will choose the 2 prospective Probates for membership in the Vendetta 
Cartel Tarantula Tribe on the basis of who he decides will be most suited [to Hammer's 
purposes as the T-Tribe Captain!] from among those responding to this All Arena Ad on 
a first response/first acceptance or rejection basis!
     -- Hammer; Vendetta Cartel Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta 
Cartel Tarantula Tribe
