                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CALEAM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  KORBEL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested RUTHLESS JAYWALKER and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  The city has turned out in honor of POPPA LODE, for with his 
arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  GOLDEN CANYON is feared.  This 
much I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of INQUISITION SL4 last week.  Busy avoiding GOLDEN CANYON?  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  GOLDEN ONE take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in CALEAM.  DELICIOUS must really be harboring a grudge 
against the GOLDEN CANYON guild!  Merciless, 20 challenged down GOLDEN ONE points 
this week to duel with she.  The weight of the challenge fell hard upon GOLDEN ONE 
and predictably he was beat by DELICIOUS.  This is how to arouse the anger of an 
entire guild!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in CALEAM as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Virginal Concubine, M. Chardinee, and the Ruthless Jaywalker.  How thrilling. --
Bouncer, Poppa Lode, and Korbel
P.S.  The worst of it is, we went oh-three against them.

Delicious -- You can't expect me to beat up a little girl, right?  Okay, ONCE you
can't expect it.  But if we meet again, SOCKO! -- Golden One

                             HAMMER ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

     Be it known from the highest mountains to the darkest alleys of Alastari that
the veteran manager known far and wide as Hammer has now officially retired from
sponsoring contests as of September 15, 2005.
     What a long time ago was a fun motivated activity to help promote our common
DM/D2 gaming interest in an effort to promote the growth and competitiveness of
selected arenas has become a far from fun experience.
     In other words Hammer has had it!
     The combination of real life situations interfering with the time needed to
effectively sponsor a contest, plus the attitudes expressed during such sponsorship
interference has led to Hammer closing his personal coin coffers and retiring from
his planned sponsorship of any future contests.
     There are others in our close knit gaming community who are well able to step up
to the plate and continue sponsoring contests that make the basic game a fun
experience for all those who choose to compete and interact in such future endeavors.
     Hammer thanks all managers both active and inactive who helped to make the
Hammer sponsored contests a historical and entertaining experience well worth the
time, effort and money spent over the past several years.

     May the Cheers and the Jeers of future contests build upon the legacies of those
who have paved the way in years gone by to help make this game what it is today.
     Hammer has no regrets for the part he has played in that history.

I'd like to say hello to everyone I know that is still around after my being gone for
five years.  Hope to see you all on the sands, and may your weapons strike true and
your shields protect you (except, of course, against MY warriors *grin*)!! -- Lord
Xiang, D2-101

26 September 2005
Regarding the Regional News:
     If any of y'all glance at it and find some arenas are behind, rest assured I'll
get them caught up next time around.  I was trying to unsnarl the darned thing, but
it was just getting worse, so I decided gradual and partial was better than not at
all or ever. -- The Saint, keeper of lists
