                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for CAT SCRATCH FEVER, who 
pummelled DIABOLICFIEND, to pocket 20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, CAT SCRATCH FEVER was winsome, after beating DIABOLICFIEND and seeing him lose 
9 points.  Can you believe it?  DARTMAN apparently has better things to do as 
NIYTYOLE ISLAND's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  Now I can't insult NIMBLE 
NEUTER, as it has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me 
if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in NIYTYOLE ISLAND is using psychics 
to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
ARENA FELINES are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of VEGGIES, so did that sorry team shy 
from ARENA FELINES Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and STUPOR is it right 
now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't JOYS OF BOOZE proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Those who owe PRESIDENT GRABWAY of COLGATE DAYS money and had written him off, take 
note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Oh hard!  that to strike a 
flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in NIYTYOLE ISLAND is the highlight of my life.  My 
fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my 
impeccable character.  NIYTYOLE ISLAND, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed 
to foot my bill at The Don't Drop Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

                            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 dueling land 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
