                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LYRATILAN to 
see what's new.  Like, NOT FOR ME had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off 
#1 spot by THE MIDDLE WAY 4!  Way to go THE MIDDLE WAY 4!  Uncool, NOT FOR ME.  I 
mean 0-5-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 
4-1-0.  Keep it up, THE MIDDLE WAY 4!  MVP award for WHITE SPIDER?  BARHOPPERS' proud 
of him after beating AIKIDO and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
AIKIDO's match with WHITE SPIDER cost him a loss of 11 points!  Like, NITROGLYCERIN 
must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from MADTOWN.  Does this guy have 
a death wish or what!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  GIGLIE stopped 
NITROGLYCERIN dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  Can NOT FOR ME's BUBBA'S CELLMATE be more popular 
than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  ERHLIE FAY really fought hard against 
MONTEZUMA'S REVENGE.  That'll teach NOT FOR ME not to go and kill any of THE MIDDLE 
WAY 4's guys again, huh!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  LYRATILAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Bikini Line -- Seems a bit crazy to me, that challenge, and you didn't even learn
anything.  But what do I know, eh?  By the way, if you go the underwired nightgown
route, check out our should-be-dead teammate, Rolph Tupp.  He's weird, but he can be
fun. -- Davia Hannas

Raving Lunatic -- That's life, isn't it?  I often feel like *I* must be one to
gladiate.  Oh, well. -- Erhlie Fay
P.S.  Why didn't you teach me something?  I was paying attention.  I would have
learned.

Harmony -- I have always felt that was an over-rated quality, and...you're probably
correct, it's a product of madness.  Like having a tidy desk, you know?  A sign of a
sick mind. -- Cassia Gorene
P.S.  I hope that your fourth loss is not a signal for a visit to the Dark Arena.  I
wouldn't like to be the straw that broke your back.

Sympathy -- Yeah, right, like anybody here cares?  Listen, dude, I'm going for the
vampire thing, on account of being an actual re-something-or-other (not a
reincarnation, 'cause I'm still mostly dead) of my illustrious, handsome, and
charming predecessor, Rolph Tupp.  And I'm planning on drifting around town scoping
out the females (because who wants to go biting MEN on the neck, eh?).  Wanna come
along?  They tell me it's better to hunt in couples. -- X. Rolph Tupp

Crown Royal -- Oh, right, like that's to distinguish you from the well known Crown
Common?  Darned if I know why I won that one, except, of course, for my superb
abilities and all.  Good try on your part, I like people who "try" that way. -- Sendi
Ubol

Ed. -- Okay, I won't, and for why?  Because I tried it on one, and she WAS feathery.
Probably a fluke, though. -- X. Rolph Tupp

     No, not a fluke.  I don't think flukes have feathers either.  Maybe she was on
     her way to a costume party? -- Ed.

In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.

     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the
Turf War 5.  Whoever sent this to me...please email me at rbaphomets@yahoo.com.
Thanks.

     The Quest of the Best has come to an end.  Dark Knight Toker, host of the Quest,
wants to proclaim the Ultimate Victor and give a listing of prize winners.
     Lady Fern and her Flower Girls of the Consortium are the Ultimate Victors of the
Quest.  Well fought and there's nothing like coming from behind to leave us all in
the dust.  Can't wait to see you defend your title! (wink)
     Here is a complete list of managers who placed in prize positions:

1)  Lady Fern, mgr. Flower Girls
2)  Le Pentarque, mgr. Blood & Guts!
3)  Crip, mgr. Otto's Parts
4)  D.K. Heathen Hatebred, mgr. Odin's Chosen
5)  Ghab, mgr. Assassin Nation
6)  Fanthayne, mgr. Dark Raiders
7)  D.K. Toker, mgr. Silver Knights
8)  D.K. Wasby, mgr. Bronze Knights
9)  The Expatriate, mgr. Bleak Legion
10) Still the Distilled, mgr. Springborne Fair

     Thanks to all that had the gall to show up, but I really want to thank the
managers that had the mettle to survive and not run when they started getting their
butt handed to them.
                                                           Respect to All.
                                                           Quest #1 host,
