                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  NIYTYOLE ISLAND needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  I don't wanna 
hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but JOYS OF BOOZE really goofed with their 
0-2-0.  MVP award for CLINCH?  SACKETT'S & CO.'s proud of her after beating TATHARLI 
and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  DEMONICHELLION got smashed 
by PUREE EVIL, and lost 8 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  IRON CHEF 
stopped KID REDO dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors 
get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  CASINO HAMMERZ was the most avoided team.  Is a 103-89-14 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what CHAOTICDISORDER's been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from CASINO HAMMERZ, that's fer sher.  Can FOOD 
FIGHT's SWILL be more popular than me?  It was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  Ooh!  Did SWILL really know what it was doing when it challenged 
OLD MILLWATER?  A 5-3-0 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it 
means.) Do you think SWILL knew something before it challenged OLD MILLWATER?  It got 
a win and 24 points.  What will the beast do next?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All NIYTYOLE ISLAND ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can 
do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Old Millwater -- (innocent look)  Didn't anybody tell you that one of the "joys of
booze" is having women knock you down for impertinence?  It's one of the few
pleasures open to a woman with a drunken date. -- Tatharli

Malodorousreek -- It (gasp) wasn't supposed to (choke) go like that.  (cough)  But
something (gasp, gag) seems to have (choke) impaired my (wheeze) fighting ability. --
Thimbell the gassed and overcome

Demonichellion -- That's a base canard and a foul misrepresentation, you know. --
Hofta Laugh

Hammer -- Welcome back.  I've only been here (with this team) for  a short time, but
I was here when you were last active.  I can't promise anything, but I'll do what I
can to stay active here.  The appearance of Jorja helps.  She's fun to talk to and to
challenge. -- Bobby Bigfoot/Chaoticdisorder

Jorja -- Welcome!  As always, it's good to see you here. -- Bobby Bigfoot/
Chaoticdisorder

Maverick Hammer -- Some of my teammates teased me about taking so long to finish you
off. -- Diabolicfiend

Thimbell -- Warning:  Avoid Chaoticdisorder, four out of five of us can do to you
what I just did. -- Malodorousreek

Hofta Laugh -- It was fun getting to pick on somebody my own size! -- Demonichellion

Bluffing Hammer -- You paced yourself well. -- Amorphousblob

Swill -- BOOM! -- Wreched Misery

11 November 2004
All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct
and up to date.  Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your
updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com.  As you may guess, replace the
at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the
web).

I have information on the following alliances:  ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada,
Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of
Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson
Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ,
Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk,
Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and
Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of
Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection,
Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel.

If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know.  If you are a member of
some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know.  If you were at any point in your
past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know.
Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to
still be in the same alliance when they return.  Even having everyone in an alliance
go inactive doesn't change anything.  If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's
another thing you have to let me know....

The Saint, keeper of lists

P.S.  If you already responded to my online plea (and I replied), you can ignore
this.

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,

500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.

     SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED
STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.
