                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon SOLVEN, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for 
a perceptive observation?) as THE DEMOCRATS can attest...  Say what you will about 
blind luck and dirty fighting, but THE POISON CLAN will tell you 60-40-1 is nothing 
to laugh at...  THE DEMOCRATS had cause to celebrate, after NANCY PELOSI got 29 
points by beating FLAT TAX.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, THE PHOENIX was 
winsome, after beating BRUJAH and seeing him lose 13 points.  In SOLVEN, nothing is 
permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, SNAKE CHARMER.  So 
who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds 
like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of KELLUMBO'S KIDS found their efforts at combat frustrated as RECORD 
PADDERS apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous 
for fifteen minutes, and FLAT TAX is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
THE REPUBLICANS proud!  As a confidence booster, THE TOAD challenged DARRELL ISSA, 
down 24 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, THE TOAD?  THE 
TOAD overcame DARRELL ISSA with a point difference of 24.  So this is what SOLVEN 
calls a duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  Willing to win at any cost is THE 
LOTUS, who challenged GIL STAYNE, 10 points junior.  Our sympathies, GIL STAYNE!  I 
thought THE LOTUS showed great skill and promise when he was subdued by GIL STAYNE.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  FLAT TAX of THE REPUBLICANS, possessing a sorry record of 19-23-0, lost his 
last battle to NANCY PELOSI of THE DEMOCRATS.  Young warriors, take note!  Such is a 
failure's lot!  Congratulations, TAX DEDUCTION.  The manager of K FORCE should have 
sent JER BER to the Dark Arena for having a 4-5-2 long ago.  The audience gave a nice 
round of rasberries to KALAMAZOO of THE ZOO, for expiring in such an ungraceful 
fashion.  12-10-0, indeed!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was 
pleased to see RECORD PADDERS retaliate against CONSPIRACY INC. in bloodfeud!  Ask 
not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for SOLVEN?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

DCumbo -- I'm sorry....  You don't fight warriors in tourneys???  Could have sworn I 
saw you at the F2F leaning over tables looking for styles.... -- MATRIX

ALL -- Just timing for the MI, I'll be here after that for the long haul.  And to 
remove KELLUMBOZO from the arena. -- MATRIX

MASTER TAZ -- You talkin to me? -- MATRIX

The Lotus -- Hmm, maybe I'm immune to your insidious lure?  Good thing you aren't 
chocolate, that gets me every time.  But it was a good try.  Salute, and may we meet 
again--but NOT on the sands.  I know a place where they have great food and a really 
good dance floor. -- Kalamazoo

Carol M. Braun -- I tell you, I'm gonna vote GREEN this year.  I've had it up to the 
gozzle with politicians! -- Zooie

Name Dropper -- Ouch!  Some of those names are HEAVY. -- Arishtarte of the bruised 
toes

Ice Pick -- (symapthetically)  It must be awful for you to have that kind of a figure.  
(pause to pose suitably)  No one would ever call ME that. -- Kiwira
P.S.  I guess the win has to compensate you for being shaped like flagpole.

Charles Rangel -- Next time you sidle up to me in the Infirmary and try to sell me 
insurance, I'm going to STEP on you, dammit. -- Eldridge Phant

DK -- Did I kill somebody and not notice?  (anxiously scrutinizing the Dead List)  
Whew, I guess not, unless it was a standby.  Leeta gets annoyed with us when we kill 
people.  At least, when we kill people in the arena. -- Zooie
P.S.  (scrutinizing the list a second time, with glasses on)  Shoot, I DID.  Of 
course, he had an equal chance to kill me, but if Leeta docks me for flowers to send 
to the funeral, I'm going to have to hock my armor to meet the payments on my sword.  
This "tight budget" dueling is the pits.

Roe V Wade -- Didn't that decision have something to do with a big girl kicking butt? 
-- Jessica

Arishtarte -- Man, I guess all that practice with Furious Impaler payed off! -- Name 
Dropper

Tax Deduction -- Do you get deductions for losses? -- Schwarzenegger, ex teammate

What Up -- I think we've danced that dance before. -- Snake Charmer

The Basilisk -- No fair I cry.  There ain't no durn basilisks in the swamp that I ever 
saw.  You just scurry on there critter before I get a hankerin' to put a whuppin' on 
you. -- Lucias Clay

Matrix -- If the only way you can pull a good turn is to run tourney guys for one turn 
in the arena, then you are even more sorry than I thought.  What's your plan?  To sit 
on those guys until another tourney and then pound your chest some more.  You are 
pathetic. -- Kellumbo

Judge -- Seriously, 2-3 again?  You're just doing this so I can get a laugh, right?  

Well, this turn we are sending Jessica after Flat Tax.  I would hope a 41 fight guy 
can take out my little 6 fight guy, but he is one of yours, so you never know..... -- 
Kellumbo

Judge -- I didn't say people appreciated my downchallenges, I said that most of the 
arena doesn't mind them in general.  Maybe I am wrong.  Speak up Solven, let your 
voices be heard.  Does downchallenging in general bother you, or should we just make 
it OK in this fine arena?  You know, live by the sword, die by the sword and all that. 
-- Kellumbo

Nooooooo!!!!  We can't have Chinese Connection and Savage Hearts both go!  Who's gonna 
give me easy wins now???!!!! -- Detective Kellumbo

Tazo -- The Chaos boys can't be your whuppin' boy if they are my whuppin' boy, can 
they? -- DK

Eldridge Phant -- Judge named me, blame him. -- Schwarzeneggar

Al Gore -- Thanks for the She-Wolf congrats.  If you could see the overview you'd be 
amazed at how she did it. -- DK

Arls -- I told ya Mr. Freeze was mad! -- DK

Solven -- Greetings, from my newest stable "Record Padders" they are very pleased to 
join the fray in your slendid arena.  Now if you'll kindly sound off, I'd like to hear 
who plays by the code we'll just call "DK's" and who is offended by downchallenges.  
In my own Free Blades way, I'll do my best to treat each of you according to your own 
style... -- Slaughter Priest

John O'Neill -- You'll be sorry you did in the Big Wimp when you have to deal with his 
replacement over the long haul... -- Hitslikesister (the newest Record Padder)

Larry Thurlow -- Tough one.  My manager says he's lost that exact same fight a hundred 
times and always hates it.  But don't feel too bad, I am... -- Almost Useful

Wanna Beast -- Looked like you'll make it (if you're not already there) to me! -- Bad 
Burner

Supply Side -- Always happens.  When you use a tactic for your first turn, you draw 
somebody it actually hinders you against.  See you again sometime. -- Off Style

Little Branch -- Heh, I'm the most work to pad your record against for now.  Some 
folks will just have to wait until their skills pile up a bit. -- Stoopid

Masked Wombat -- Is that you?  If so, welcome back! -- Al Gore

DK -- A run of bad luck lately has got me pounding my fists in a blind rage.  
Hopefully no more 0-5 turns. -- Al Gore

Zooie -- Another night fight. -- Al Gore

Dyson -- Two skills!  Thanks.  LOL! -- Al Gore

                            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
