                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     This is certainly more pertinent in Talcama, but Suave's unquenchable appetite
for attention has forced me to post it here as well.  He just loves to have other
managers know about him and talk about him.  So, enjoy a visit to the world of Den.

     Den sat at the famed Allied Axis Decision Table, where he would be found every
Wednesday awaiting the other members.  Tradition would draw each of them to the table 
on Wednesday mornings to continue their plan to spread pain, misery, and sorrow
amongst the populace.  Deep in thought he took another bite from a block of cheese.
He had once heard that some would snack on pudding, but Den found this inclination to
be found in only those with questionable sexual preferences.  Surely nobody that
would manage a team would snack upon pudding, least of all tapioca, the vilest of all
puddings.  His concentration was broken when a messenger hurried into the antechamber
with an eager look upon his face.
     "What is it my good man?" asked Den.
     "Den, I bring odd news, it would appear that a manager called Suave is making a
weak attempt to darken the Allied Axis' grand name in Talcama."
     "Yes, I can certainly imagine it was weak, and monosyllabic I would assume.  The
man lacks any semblance of imagination, but what can be expected from that puke hole
of a city, nobody with any skill would reside there long." Den explained to the
messenger.
     "But, he says there is naught left to be done that he has not already done.
Basically, without him, the arena would fold, is this true?" asked the messenger.
     "Of course, Suave is as unique as the rest of us.  Manage teams long enough and
you can accomplish just about anything.  I hear even Apex has been able to succeed at
certain times.  It is indeed sad that Suave must continue to hide behind his
longevity.  The old saying is 'what have you done for me lately?' and he would not be
able to answer that question.  Certainly, if I kept the team active long enough in
that sinkhole I would probably beat him to 1000 wins, the competition is nonexistent.
Perhaps he has indeed matched accomplishment for accomplishment, but we were there
first in every instance I would wager.  You see, the Allied Axis is an alliance of
firsts, everyone remembers the first and all other feats are compared against it.
Suave has little achievements of his own, therefore he must cradle what small
victories he has, which are indeed few." Den answered.
     "What about respect Den, he made claims regarding respect?" the messenger begged
to be enlightened.
     "Suave is once again confused; respect is something that is earned, not given
freely.  He expects all to respect him simply because his zip code has not changed in
some time.  This is ignorance in work as never seen.  I fight for a very simple goal,
to kill every warrior that steps onto the sand.  What does respect have to do with
this?  Nothing, that is what.  At the end of the day I want to know that I won
victory and for that day I was the best, this is what I fight for.  Respect can kiss
my butt cheeks, it does nothing for me.  The talented will look upon our alliance and
respect from afar, for they understand what must be done to achieve the amount of
victories that we consistently achieve using varied fighting styles.  Many managers
know nothing other than Aimed Blows, Lungers, and Strikers, yet we commonly hold many
Stylemaster positions in areas long forgotten.  This is not by accident nor luck, we
simply expect more and achieve it.  Would respect change that?  Certainly not.  I'll
take five kills over earning the respect of a single manager any day of the week.
Suave is a simple man, the greater concepts of the world escape him easily." Den once
again visited his intelligence upon the messenger.
     "Shall you answer him?" asked the messenger.
     "Against my better judgment I will make a small journey in hopes to enlighten
our faltering friend." Den stood and searched out his travel cloak.

     Suave sat in his chair busily slurping away his tapioca pudding, his fingers and
tongue working feverishly at ferreting out each hidden speck.  The pudding had
collected in his moustache which he found joy in attempting to lick it with his
tongue, pausing frequently to laugh to himself at the frustration.  He really loved
pudding.  Just then his door burst open and a very charismatic gentlemen strode into
his humble abode.
     "You must be Suave." Den said as he looked upon what could only be Suave.  The
man was laying in a chair, his enormous gut sticking out of his shirt and over his
waistband.  He appeared to be wearing some type of ballet outfit, only the ballet was
not in town.
     "Suave I am, and I am Suave.  Everyone knows me, and everyone loves me, without
me the world would crumble and cease to exist.  Also, I invented all things great,
which is why people love me.  Stupid things I did not invent, but I bet you did,
because you like stupid stuff.  Are you Den?  If you are, I just want you to know
that I don't respect you, so there."
     Den looked the disgust that had risen from the chair, almost in pity.  "Suave,
are you OK?  You actually seem more dense than usual."
     "YES, I AM FINE; YOU ARE NOT NICE TO PEOPLE!" Suave yelled, flecks of pudding
spraying in all directions, some from his mouth and others from his gutter soaked
moustache.
     "Indeed Suave, my goal is to kill your warriors, would you have me be nice to
them prior to killing them?"
     "CAN'T WE ALL BE FRIENDS?  HOW ABOUT IF WE FIGHT WITH TEDDY-BEARS?  I LIKE
TEDDY-BEARS, THEY ARE SOFT AND CUDDLY, THIS WAY NOBODY WOULD BE HURT."
     "Sorry Suave, that would not work.  Warriors fight for victory, and holding
teddy-bears would not bring that victory any closer.'
     "NOBODY WILL TALK TO YOU ANYMORE."
     "Don't care Suave, I am here to fight, not make some drinking buddies.  I
already have enough drinking buddies; I don't need any from this sinkhole."
     "I THINK YOU ACT LIKE OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME BEFORE.  YOU JUST TRY TO BE
MEAN LIKE THEM OTHER PEOPLE.  THAT DOES NOT WORK HERE, WE ARE NICE AND HAVE CANDY
SOMETIMES."
     "Yes indeed Suave, you are deluded.  Perhaps I should be just like you, but
wait, wouldn't that be a tired old act too?  Be like you, or someone else, not much
difference.  How about if the Allied Axis continues our quest as we have for two
decades, would that be all right?  Maybe, that is who we are, and we find that much
better than being a perverted freak like you."
     "YOU ACT LIKE YOU ARE BETTER THAN EVERYONE.  NOBODY BETTER, WE ARE ALL THE
SAME."
     "Sorry again Suave, we are not equal.  We brag only because we can and will let
our accomplishments speak for themselves.  What are you wearing anyway?  The ballet
is not in town.  You do realize those are not tights, those are nylons you are
wearing?"
     "1000 WINS, I WILL HAVE 1000 WINS!  I HAVE WARRIORS IN ADVANCED!  I WIN SOME
FIGHTS!  MY WARRIORS GET SKILLS!  I BREAK WEAPONS!  I USE SHIELDS!  I SANDBAG
WARRIORS SO THEY DO BETTER!  I AM NICE TO EVERYONE SO THEY DON'T SAY MEAN STUFF TO
ME!  MEAN STUFF HURTS MY FEELINGS!"
     Den calmly turned and walked from the room.  There was obviously no common
ground between them, this was a waste of a trip and time.  Suave is from a time long
gone and just does not realize it yet.  If you fail to change, you fail.  What a way
to spend a Wednesday.

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  It was a tough week for JAILBIRDS, to drop 4 
places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, KLKASINO HAMMERZ has 
advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for DUCK CREEK HAMMER, 
who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing ONSLAUGHT like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
ONSLAUGHT was subdued by DUCK CREEK HAMMER and drops 12 points.  In front of all the 
crowds, ACID BATH took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks. 
Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid BIG LAKE BANDITS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does NIATOLI ISLAND really have 
that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch HOMELAND SECURITY's act in 
the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from BIG LAKE BANDITS.  
And who is this SPICOLI you ask, with 47 points and a 6-15-2 record.  Ooh, the tales 
I could tell!  THE MURDERER of DEATH PENALTY had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 15 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought THE MURDERER 
showed great skill and promise when he bested SPICOLI.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Yes, and another newbie bites 
the dust as FREEDOM FIGHTER goes down under the sword of KILMOR.  Thanks to this, 
KILMOR now has 46 recognition points.  For those of you who missed it, Death showed 
up, grabbed THE NEANDERTHAL by the ear and took him away to a place where he won't 
need a coat.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, SKULLCRUSHER was mashed by 
SNORK SLAYMORE, who let SKULLCRUSHER know that killing members of BAD COMPANY is a 
no-no.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems 
on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in NIATOLI ISLAND 
have no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another 
Spy Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The

Eggplant -- I haven't got beat by a veggie since my last fight with Big Jer. --
Ikillu

Mortician -- I can't believe you lived through the beating I gave you, let alone you
win. -- Skullcrusher

Acid Bath -- That's not what that style is supposed to do.  Please go to the dark
arena immediately. -- The Crippler

Hare Creek Hammer -- God must guide your blade. -- The Anvil

Teddy Nash -- Satan must guide yours. -- Vexer

To any who contributed to my 0-5 last turn, I'm really mad. -- Ikillu

Team Filth -- Once again we ride the winds of victory, and you falter at the crevice
of ineptitude.  Once again we build an insurmountable lead in our contest, with
victory assured I can now focus on the "others", and spread my torment with the ease
of your mother's eggs during Niytyole's Moon Harvest. -- Den

Homeland Security -- That was a lucky win, I pray you bring another pud in an attempt
to defeat my Falconeye, for it will certainly land another kill.  In my heart of
hearts, I know that I can cause you enough misery to leave you screaming in a ball at
the foot of your lonely bed each and every night.  I look forward to those screams.
-- Den

Hammerhead -- Thanks, the only thing better than a 5-0 is a 5-0-5, and the only thing
better than a 5-0-5, is a 5-0-5 against your warriors.  I appreciate that you noticed
though, a man that does not watch his enemies is fated to suffer at their hands. --
Den

Hammerhead -- True to my word, one warrior will visit the DA this turn.  If a man
does not have his word, what does he indeed have?  However; I have decided to change
my edict, if I lose to one of your warriors, with a warrior ranked higher than yours,
I will send a warrior to the DA.  I of course reserve the right to change this notice
at any time, without prior approval from yourself or any other interested parties. --
Den

All -- The HC has taken a 19-12 lead over the hapless Team Filth.  If you listen very
carefully you can hear the Fat Lady warming up back stage. -- Bill

General -- When this little contest is over, put on your dancing shoes. -- Bill

Crambus, Nye Maulers -- I don't care what you see on the map.  It will be turned red
with your blood soon.  You can expect more of the same from my warriors, except for
the lackadaisical strategies that cost two of the warriors their lives.  I won't make
an excuse for the death suffered, but I will revel in four turns of challenges to
your warrior.  Lets say, although, I did fear your warrior this turn, thus you saw
the worst warrior from the stable left.  That won't be the case in the future.  And
by the way, I am to be referred to as the manager of Homeland Security, "?," or
"Question Mark." I'm not being a coward.  That is my manager name. -- ?, Homeland
Security

Den, High Priestess of the "aa" -- I'm glad you've made so many alleged claims to
greatness.  Keep the challenges going, and do your best to keep me down.  As soon as
each level is reached I will alert you and your cohorts of their failures.  I will
renew the alerts each turn you fail again.  Take some comfort though.  You did kill
two of my warriors before a tourney when I didn't care.  Thanks for the four free
turns of elevated challenges.  I'll do my best to keep your warrior alive for the
first three turns.  Here is to both of us not being clever, as in my guild name and
your alleged ability as a manager. -- ?, Homeland Security

Hammer -- I haven't sent a guild to the Shadow Spire arena but I am considering it.
In fact, I think I have one to turn in and fight the two "aa" guys there.  You know,
the ones who revel in their ability to kill warriors with more experienced warriors.
I'm sure you know what will happen to them as I keep my team above 50% w/l.  Excuses
by the "aa" will be abound. -- ?, Homeland Security

Den, High Drag Queen of the "aa" -- Have you shut up yet?  You seem to bloviate in
whatever forum you reside.  Care to do more than boast of your ability?  I'm tired of
it already and I've only been here two turns.  Enough from the collective Judas in
the arena. -- ?, Homeland Security

All -- Internet connection went out last night so no P-ads or Spot other than this!
-- Hammer/Minister of War
P.S.  As for Stat quotes Den, you are the one who pointed out the W/L percentages
that garnered my response, but I shall not waste any more space replying to you!

The Council of Lords would like to propose a rule change in ADM and Primus.  We
propose that Lord Protectors ranked "Grand Champions" and below (ADM) and "The Tower
Guard" and below (Primus) be allowed to fight in the Dark Arena.  This would not
impact the top rankings or title match.  Any managers who never got his fill or shot
at fighting Gateway monsters would have it as an option.  We believe it might spark
some interest in the ADM/Primus realm for some managers.  If interested, speak up in
the newsletters or on forums under the "rules changes" thread and let RSI know.  This
could even be something to try for 12 months and then be re-evaluated.  What say you,
managers of Ghea? -- The Icelord sends....

     HDFA Mission Statement
     "Show me the money!"
     This is the battle cry of a newly formed collection of like-minded individuals:
The High Dolla' Free Agent$.  We are not a tough guy alliance:  No...we offer no
battle without reward.  We search for victory and the prizes and accolades that
follow.  We are motivated by winning and will freely use whatever means necessary to
obtain our currency.  No stuffy rules, no mandates, no constitutions, no leaders,
only a few objectives:
     1) Win as often as possible
     2) Celebrate freely and revel in your victories; the more meaningless the
victory the more we celebrate.  Highsiding and chest thumping are encouraged.
Ostentatious endzone celebrations with prop usage are encouraged, regardless of
fines, penalties, suspensions or arrest by local authorities.  It is important to let
your opponent know how great you are; more importantly, you must let your own
alliance mates know how great you are.
     This is a 1-up alliance, let the performance of your fellow Free Agent$ motivate
you.  If a Free Agent wins a TV, win 2; if a Free agent wins a contest, win a more
prestigious one.
     Current members of the HDFA include:  CFH and Abraxis.  Inquires can be directed
to:  CFH/Rat Salad DM 47
