                                      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 TROOPERS, who came from 2nd 
with a 2-3-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for NATURALBORN KILLERS, whose 1-1-0 this turn dropped them by 5 
into 14th.  THE ABYSMALS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-0-2 into a 5 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  SUNSET welcomes a 
new team to our ranks, unofficially of course, for now.  But welcome nonetheless to 
BOBS9.  Let's see what you can do.  And let's see, AGENT 99 fought ASHANDAR and 
gained 15 points and contributed to MINISTRY OF SKA's 1-0-0.  DJININSKI has lost to 
STELLA ARTOIS, falling 11 points, while helping make SWORD OPERA a 1-4-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, SUIGENERIS kept GRIM FANDANGO's warrior, 
SKYDANCER, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  TROOPERS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were SUNSET's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding TROOPERS more than any other team we find REAL BEER.  SUNSET, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that BASS from REAL BEER was SUNSET's most challenged warrior this turn.  Building 
dreams on hope, TERRE HAUTE challenged up 28 points this turn to take on ACE from 
SWORD OPERA stable.  And crowds were on their feet when TERRE HAUTE claimed a victory 
from ACE, and now has 52 points for its efforts.  ZERO of AGE OF EMPIRE had better 
have a good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge which he won.  I 
thought ZERO showed great skill and promise when he overcame MERIHIM.  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.  Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill declares a free round for STREET LEGAL and all of 
I MAGI, for having revenged TROOPERS' HOODLUM for killing one of their comrades.  
Congratulations go out to THE ABYSMALS, with MARIT BASHIER revenging a bloodfeud 
against BELIAL of SONS OF SATAN.  Is it really true that SUNSET has more dishwashers 
per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, SUNSET, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in SUNSET, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

1 March 2005
                                    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
can be contacted at:
