                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome VEASTIAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SJORDHAL?  
He actually beat VEASTIAN's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 13 more points 
from the fight.  M. CHARDINEE was reminded on the sands why TAMARA RAHN is 
Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
VEASTIAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

Lion -- (indignantly)  I nearly pulled a muscle fighting to control my sword against
the force of your magnetism.  What a thing! -- Tirniellis
P.S.  Shouldn't you have, I don't know, more hair or something?  A mane, yeah, that's
it.  Shouldn't you have a mane and whiskers, and maybe a tail?

Jaguar -- Well, what *I* think is you're Aruaki and concealing it so you won't be
chained up, as wild animals SHOULD be. -- Konjor the darkly suspicious
P.S.  Or caged.

Tamara Rahn -- You, ahem, won that because, ah, because I wanted you to take the
title appropriately, which is to say, with a win.  Yes, that's it.  I was, perhaps, a
little distracted with the details of planning my retirement, and I just couldn't
give you enough attention to make the fight look more...genuine.  Er, hold the title
in good health and honor and all that stuff, not that I want you to be too Andorian
about it. -- Tirraj
P.S.  It's unfortunate that you're an orc, but I suppose you can't help it.

Hyena -- Die. -- Kuressa D'Gen

Ettore Hsidar -- That is NOT a woman's name, young wench.  In fact, it is a name that
bears a tremendous burden of infamy and will visit it upon your undeserving head.
And I will enjoy watching, too.  Nothing personal, perhaps, but no elf will ever look
kindly on one who bears the name of that infamous villain. -- Sjordhal

Mursid N'Isn, Ambitious Guard -- Of COURSE I was savage.  I'm an orc, you're a
Karnhorn, what else would you EXPECT? -- Tirniellis

20 October 2006
In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the
Turf War 5.  Whoever sent this to me...please email me at rbaphomets@yahoo.com.
Thanks.
