                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for NIATOLI ISLAND.  I talked to STEEL PATH 
2's manager before the fights.  He said, "We're gonna do good."  And look at this:  
3-1-0!  Psychic, or what!  MVP award for DIABOLICFIEND?  CHAOTICDISORDER's proud of 
him after beating BIG CASINO HAMMER and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  BIG CASINO HAMMER got smashed by DIABOLICFIEND, and lost 12 points!  And I 
was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
DEMONICHELLION.  Aren't CHAOTICDISORDER proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of VEGGIES must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys 
know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are CHAOTICDISORDER?  
VEGGIES, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can THE SEWING CIRCLE's TATHARLI be more popular than me?  She was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Demonichellion -- Not NOW, I don't have TIME for this!  Oh, all right, and I won't
refuse the expert rating, but still, I've got things to be and places to do. --
Tatharli

Bluffing Hammer -- Well, DARN.  I TRUSTED you, I thought it really WAS a bluff.  But
you came through with (oof) the goods.  I hate it when that happens. -- Thimbell

Gosh!  The Cult Member made wild threats during the fight!  But...what if they
weren't WILD?  What if he MEANT it, and they really CAN summon demons to the island?
-- Irinkesta the worried and alarmed

Irinkesta's right.  The Cult Member may be dangerous!  Well, I know he is--he has
caught the eye of an Author, and we may have a story with demons in it starting next
cycle (apparently there was some sort of time crunch <what else is new?> which
prevents it starting THIS time).  Turn up and see!  The more the gorier, and so
forth. -- Tyler

Yes, the imminence of Cycle 500, which some people seem to feel is a Significant
Milestone, has prodded me to contemplate a story, which will run here and in Arvat
(also approaching cycle 500).  There will be demons.  Monsters too gruesome for
complete description.  Pirates.  Nasty magicians.  The works.  Jump in! -- the Scribe

     Will there be ice cream with swirls? -- Ed.

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.
Street Legal

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
