                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  RODEKI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for GADGET?  
RESCUE RANGERS' proud of him after beating ROCKJAW and getting 23 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  FRANKENBUTT got smashed by CONVICTED ASSASSIN, and lost 17 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  MIYAGI'S MIATA stopped THE MOLE 
dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said RODEKI's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of DELVERS must be getting lonely.  They were the most 
avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are HIGHER PURPOSE?  DELVERS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  SOUPLE returns from the Dark Arena, 
maybe a "little upset" at his WAY OF THE SWORD A3 teammates...  What if they had a 
fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  RODEKI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

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
