                             Notes from the arena champ.

      A good try, Kallie, and I hope you find the skills useful in the long run.  In
an arena this size, not much chance of me facing anyone else except a standby, so
we'll probably meet again.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRICORUS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with ABRAHAM?  He actually 
beat BLACK CONVENTICLE's DARK RIVER, and walked away with 29 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at DARK HORSEMEN.  GALBEI lost 9 points to KALLIE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GALBEI will provide more easy wins...  TRICORUS, set your 
sights on CONVICTED ASSASSIN.  He'll be happy to entertain all requests after 
defeating MARGALH.  KALLIE looked pretty Duelmasterlike as she took TRICORUS' top 
spot with 88 points.  Now, what will MARGALH do?  I suppose you want to hear some 
rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
DARK HORSEMEN.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at AMAZON ELITE ain't 
reelin'!  DARK HORSEMEN's mad!  What do people see in GALBEI?  His 12-13-2?  DARK 
HORSEMEN ain't talkin', but he's got 68 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Convicted Assassin?  Pooh, he doesn't know a thing worth learning. -- Galbei

Neala -- Tedious, isn't it?  Small Arena Syndrome at its most annoying. -- Aillendei

Oski Noble?  Amazing, I didn't think those stuck-up (deleteds) had the good sense to
rationalize the spelling. -- Kurbald

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.

     The Quest of the Best has come to an end.  Dark Knight Toker, host of the Quest,
wants to proclaim the Ultimate Victor and give a listing of prize winners.
     Lady Fern and her Flower Girls of the Consortium are the Ultimate Victors of the
Quest.  Well fought and there's nothing like coming from behind to leave us all in
the dust.  Can't wait to see you defend your title! (wink)
     Here is a complete list of managers who placed in prize positions:

1)  Lady Fern, mgr. Flower Girls
2)  Le Pentarque, mgr. Blood & Guts!
3)  Crip, mgr. Otto's Parts
4)  D.K. Heathen Hatebred, mgr. Odin's Chosen
5)  Ghab, mgr. Assassin Nation
6)  Fanthayne, mgr. Dark Raiders
7)  D.K. Toker, mgr. Silver Knights
8)  D.K. Wasby, mgr. Bronze Knights
9)  The Expatriate, mgr. Bleak Legion
10) Still the Distilled, mgr. Springborne Fair

     Thanks to all that had the gall to show up, but I really want to thank the
managers that had the mettle to survive and not run when they started getting their
butt handed to them.
                                                           Respect to All.
                                                           Quest #1 host,
                                                           Dark Knight Toker
