                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out RODEKI to see 
what's new.  MVP award for FRANKENBUTT?  COLOR ME SUAVE's proud of him after beating 
VETERAN MERCENARY and getting 12 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  HANDSOME 
IS got smashed by THIRD BASE SPOCK, and lost 7 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  MIYAGI'S MIATA stopped ADASHIR dead in his tracks!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  DELVERS was the most avoided team.  Is a 388-532-11 record really 
that scary?  I don't know what HIGHER PURPOSE's been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from DELVERS, that's fer sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Miyagi's Miata -- Good job!  Take it away.  I've got some rocks to smash. -- The Mole

1977 Amc Matador -- Ah, scrambling back up toward the Duel2Dude's title, I see.  Good
riddance!  You're no fun at all when it comes to a party.  Just sitting around in a
corner going "Vroom, vroom."  Bah. -- Handsome Is

Red Skelton -- It's some kind of rule, isn't it?  Or at least a meaningful
congruence.  Make some defiant statement, and boom, you lose.  (sigh)  Oh, well. --
Handsome Does

NO!  I will NOT have it!  I'm six-foot-four and the Commission thinks I'm a DWARF?
Are they INSANE?  I want this FIXED. -- Rockjaw

What a fussbudget Rockjaw is!  The Commissioner probably made his mistake after
looking at me.  I find men often do things like. -- La Chiselle, an orc and proud of

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!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     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
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     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
