                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KATI-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see FLUTTERLEE win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
KUNG-FU MASTER beat LURLINE GRACE and LURLINE GRACE lost 9 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as THE VEAL DEAL takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Swinging 
Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From KATI-TEI's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, JEHU was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KATI-TEI's 
morgue.  More variety.  It's about time JEHU got beat for picking on warriors like 
GREW SOME GRUE.  Bravo, OLD SCHOOL.  See you at The Swinging Aardvark.  Honor is like 
a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the KATI-TEI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of KATI-TEI.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Rubix Cubesteak -- Yeahyeahyeah.  I've seen you before.  I've done the solution.  I
don't want to do it again.  Bring me something NEW, okay? -- Parnian, who is really
grouchy this morning

Spocka the Hutt -- Think of it as going back to the "Old School" for advanced
studies. -- Saturn

Ghost of Spud-Bearing Fuzz -- Sorry about that.  I believe you have actually fallen
victim to Small Arena Syndrome, wherein you get really badly matched if you don't
challenge.  I shall, of course, be here for your teammates, not that you yourself
will care, but they probably will. -- Jehu

Cuddly Kahlua -- Ha.  The arenamaster just didn't want to admit that it was all YOU.
You were trying to burrow into the sand, not me bury you.  I don't see why, it was
such a CUTE little blue bow that I wanted to put around your neck.  It just GOES with
"cuddly." -- Lurline Grace

Wherever did they find that DARLING Ambitious Guard?  He's so SWEET. -- Flutterlee

20 April 2005
I have returned after a five-year absence.  I expect all tithes, gifts and bequeaths
to resume as normal. -- Magic Man

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!
