                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, 
observe COSMIC FREAK OUT.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 8!  What's a move up 
by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to 
BLACKEST PRIDE.  BLACKEST PRIDE had cause to celebrate, after HORNS got 27 points by 
beating DRANE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, 
after losing 17 points to HORNS.  (Discrete enough, DRANE?) A certain someone saw 
RONALD REAGAN at Cagliostro's Castle with the shakes, and now he fails to show up to 
defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In SUNSET, nothing is permanent (except 
Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, BLEVINS.  Word has it one team in 
SUNSET is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     And how sociable are SUNSET's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble eagle 
soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SCRAGITARIOUS, alone and 
unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, GRIM FANDANGO scurried away 
from SCRAGITARIOUS.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, PRIME SLIME is the most challenged 
warrior.  ASHANDAR challenged ACE!  Who says AGE OF EMPIRE are just a bunch of wimps! 
ASHANDAR of AGE OF EMPIRE kept his wits as he won victory over ACE.  Willing to win 
at any cost is BLEVINS, who challenged PRIME SLIME, 9 points junior.  Our sympathies, 
PRIME SLIME!  I thought BLEVINS showed great skill and promise when he defeated PRIME 
SLIME.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Like a tattered, worn-out, faded, out-of-fashion garment cast out to rot, 
BRAND of OUTSIDERS has been summarily sent to the Dark Arena.  A moment of silence 
for DEVIL PRINCE, who died an untimely death at the hands of DRUNK MOOSE.  In the 
spirit of revenge, we call upon MEOW MIX to act!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, 
the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!--

Blevins -- Well, okay, laugh if you want to.  I don't mind.  And everybody needs a
good laugh now and then. -- Lugo Beloski

Drunk Moose -- You were so drunk, you couldn't have hit the broad side of a barn even
if the arenamaster had let me use one as a shield.  Ha! -- Ace
P.S.  I want your antlers for my carriage.

Alexander the Gr8 -- Wretched mammal!  You have no RESPECT.  You don't realize how
HARD it is to be a Duck.  May you get a fungus on your toes. -- Duckbert

Lillian Lust -- Absolutely, ma'am! -- John Darling, lusting as per instructions

Hoodlum -- And a thief, as well, I see.  You stole what should have been MY win. --
Djininski

Stik -- (frowning)  Is Duckbert a good rollup?  Wait, let me check....  Ah, there he
is.  I wouldn't call him good, but then again, he clearly isn't bad, so.... -- Nick
or Jorja
P.S.  Charisma of fifteen?  That's RIDICULOUS.
P.P.S.  And yes, I do enjoy the occasional decent rollup, although what counts as
"decent" does vary from one arena to the next.  Not much, but some, depending on the
style mix.
P.P.P.S.  Why shouldn't he be scary?  This is a Delarquan arena.
P.P.P.P.S.  Actually, I suppose I WOULD call him a good rollup.  I'm not THAT hard to
please.

On behalf of the ILLUMINATI Confederation of Alliances (The kLk, CHAOS, Inc. and The
Company of Brothers) I would like to express our sympathies concerning the tragic
loss of Rich Hammes to both the DM community and to the real life world.  Surely our
loss has been Heaven's gain. -- Talon Darkhart, deeply sorrowful

                                    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:
