     The Kung-Fu Master is so not-a-challenge.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TRICORUS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SAM CASSELL, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after 
mashing HARZOGH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ZALGEI lost to GRAPE and drops 13 points.  
Well, everybody's pal DELANGE moved hers record to 23-12-2 by defeating KUNG FU 
MASTER in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 2 recognition points.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that WHOLE FOODS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of WHOLE FOODS' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  WHOLE FOODS + 
Weapons That go Boom = FRUITS + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece 
of ZALGEI, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TRICORUS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  
Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

The Venomous Concubine is sly.  She offered to let me win...for a price.  Shierah!
The Userous Merchant doesn't even drive such a bargain.  Like I HAVE that much money.
As if! -- Harzogh

Oh, joy, JUST what I needed, for Delange to get the Kung-Fu Master stirred up.  But
at least I got a better skill out of it than she did. -- Turagh

once about grape juice stains and figured, no, this is my clean shirt. -- Zalgei

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
