                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZENSU!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for BLONDE GRENADE?  
BEYOND THE PALE's proud of her after beating KHALHUMS DWARF and getting 13 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  GUNNAR HANSEN's match with THE HEDGE cost him a loss of 
9 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think TRIANGLE MAN 
should let BLADE MASTER be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who 
was the wiseguy that said ZENSU's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory 
Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     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.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

     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

     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
