                                  The Dogs of War

We, the dogs of war, are the offspring of some of the most powerful villians and 
warriors to ever answer the call of battle.  Now that we have come to avenge our 
fallen Fathers, all who stand in the way shall be annihilated under the bone crushing
jaws of the dogs of war.  We will rule this realm, and you will bend, break, or
fold... so consider yourselves put on notice... may our foes die slowly!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to THE MIDDLE WAY, as they are pushed from the coveted 
top team spot by the KIWI CONNECTION stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for SALOME 
TORENE, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing NATIVE LOOTER like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  WOXTON was overcame by COLLABORATOR and drops 8 points.  In front of all 
the crowds, UDARN VOYL took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the XOCHITHLAN arena.  Well 
dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, ULRIK VENN would be president.  Although it 
may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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 XOCHITHLAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

All -- Great fights this week!  Salome Torene gets props on teaching Nyssa how to
REALLY use scimitars.  Rematch later, when Nyssa gets better?
     And Snowman, how he won this one, I'll never know.  He took two hits to the
groin, two to the neck, two to the right hand, one each on the right arm and chest...
he saved himself from the Dark Arena, though.
     Arya and Ziggy did well, they'll get the good wine with their dinners.
     Jaxx, however... will sorely be missed.
     Good luck again to all this month (and thanks again, Jorja).
                                          -- Lobo, Steel Wolves mgr

Lobo -- Another manager information packet is, I hope, in with this turn for you.  As
regards role play, have you got the "Land of Alastari" background material?  That can
be requested from the Commission. -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Asquith. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Massey -- I suppose I shouldn't feel all puffed up about that win, but I do.  Good
fight, from my side! -- Udarn Voyl

Captured Nomad.  Are we still doing that?  The Rirorni War has been over for twenty
years. -- Bettina Chim

How can I be expected to fight a shaman's assistant?  Do you know what those guys
WEAR?  I didn't know where to look. -- Ulrik Venn the Embarrassed
P.S.  He isn't even impressive.  Too hairy.  Makes you wonder where he came from,
since the Rirorni aren't much for body hair.

Nyssa -- Odd, I thought maybe I was running too fast, got the jump, moving constantly
without pause, all that stuff.  And in the summer, with armor!  But it seems to have
worked.  This time. -- Salome Torene
