                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Events not working out right?  Are you not where you thought you'd be by now? 
Don't despair!  It's perfectly normal for those less fortunate to fail.   There is
hope for enlightenment!  Please welcome my newest squad, "Prophetic Omens."  Take
heed of our signs and foresee our results.
     Let me introduce them.  First, there's Ripple Causer.  He's quite the head
turner and always has others flocking around.  So I'm sure he'll see plenty of
attention from you all.  There there's World Brink.  He'll take you to the edge and
test your enthusiasm for this professions.  We have Swirls and Arcs who we lovingly
call Spotts since that's what you usually end up seeing after her bout.  There's
Misty Form.  After fighting her you will think, was she even there?  And finally we
have Crator's Cause.  He's here 'cause, well, prophecy uses agents of all types.  And
his is to cause you ruin.
     As you know, Omens bode ill for all who ignore or don't respect them.  But
prophecy can also be used to help one come through trials and manipulate outcomes.
And we really want to help you to those losses!  May the signs point to our
successful work!

                  Lord Rahl, mgr Prophetic Omens

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of XOCHITHLAN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at KIWI 
CONNECTION left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by 
CRIMINAL ELEMENT.  Good show!  I doubt many are quaking in their boots, but PROPHETIC 
OMENS comes out of nowhere to get 4-1-0.  What does the future hold?  Watch this 
space...  Practice pays for QUITA ROSALA, who pummelled PAT RISIDE, to pocket 26 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 24 points to QUITA ROSALA.  (Discrete enough, PAT RISIDE?) KAHR, JACK 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by XYOKOR YAHL of THE MIDDLE WAY.  Does 
XOCHITHLAN have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in 
XOCHITHLAN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet 
it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  The audience 
gave a nice round of rasberries to XYOKOR YAHL of THE MIDDLE WAY, for expiring in 
such an ungraceful fashion.  14-39-0, indeed!  Fair play must not be a credo of 
CRIMINAL ELEMENT, as KAHR, JACK permanently removed XYOKOR YAHL of THE MIDDLE WAY 
from the competition in a mismatched fight.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Ipswich -- Sounds like what you'd say if you dropped something. -- Xyokor Yahl

Woxton -- It;s mildly amusing to speculate on your name and wonder what might have
been worn down to make that, but even such intellectual pleasures pall after a while.
Have you considered speaking, initiating conversation? -- Timor Unred

Pat Riside -- Ah. -- Fallon Grimm, nobody's father (so far as is known)

Massey -- That's what your human blood does, makes you more massive.  Glad I don't
have to worry about that.  Elves never put on weight. -- Quita Rosala the Smug

Our congratulations to Kahr, Jack.  Way to go. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
