                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JHANS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as VOW TO DESTROY is pushed 
out of top team by ENGINES 'O' DEATH, who came from 0th with a 3-2-1 this turn.  Now 
keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for LEGENDARY 
BASTARDS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 11th.  SPACE WOLVES stable has 
parlayed this turn's 2-2-0 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, FERACLES fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and 
gained 20 points and contributed to ENGINES 'O' DEATH's 3-2-1.  Defending his title 
for another turn, HELIX PRIME kept BABES' warrior, ROSIE, from claiming the throne.  
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
Lucas Lounge?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that JHANS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JHANS and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JHANS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

All -- Now, last turn was disgusting.  Not one p-ad.  What do I gotta do, start some
trouble to instigate the p-ads?  If I don't start seeing some, that's what's gonna
happen.  This is the "most happening arena in all of Alastari."  So, let's see some
action!!! -- Baphomet, mgr. Chop's Pride

20 October 2006
In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
