                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome FRATSFA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  OHIO were a bunch of 
dogs after OTTO'S PARTS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  MIDDLE WAY 
8 showed FRATSFA what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off 
with 4-1-0.  What's with CAULIFLOWER EARS?  He actually beat OHIO's SOUTHPOINT, and 
walked away with 24 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at OTTO'S PARTS 
while they watched CAULIFLOWER EARS clobber SOUTHPOINT.  She lost 17 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure FRATSFA is excited about 
BEXLEY, the new Duelmaster from OHIO.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
FRATSFA thinks ASSASSIN NATION and their 121-145-20 is too much!  If at first you 
don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 120-143-20 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, OTTO'S PARTS?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Southpoint -- Looking fine. -- Cauliflower Ears

Toledo -- Holy Toledo, Batman.  Sorry, I can't think of anything witty to retort
with, I have a headache at the moment. -- Brain Tumour

Tealin 'Mustang' Sali -- I thought you'd surely have the O2 capacity to outlast me.
-- Collapsed Lung

Severity -- Critical, I'd say, in my case at least. -- Pulled Hamstring

Bexley -- My, you must be one of the shortest Fratsfan around.  It isn't every day
that a Dwarf such as myself finds herself almost eye to eye with one of your lot.
And you were so attentive, too. -- Lena Kori

Collapsed Lung -- Considering your condition, you're amazingly hard to fight against.
Ouch! -- Tealin Sali

Mayhem -- No, hem may NOT. -- Rendor Quil
P.S.  Wish I could enforce that....

Hmm, I guess this Scribe IS Trustworthy...within reasonable limits.  I learned a
couple of interesting pen-flourishes from him.  Not that I'm likely to USE them, but
I can say I know how.  That's something, I suppose. -- Salina Rees

Gosh, that Shiftyeyed Volunteer is really a suspicious looking character.  I just
sort of WANTED to beat him up.  And I did. -- Norvan Patt

Mayhem -- You were obviously the victim of some kind of sick joke.  Either that, or a
dark conspiracy.  We don't hold you to blame for your absence, and to be honest, we
would not have bloodfeuded anyway.  Much too energetic! -- Leeta, Middle Way 8

Severity -- Yes, but I try not to take MORE than my share. -- Salina Rees

Salina Rees -- I found you amazingly intelligent and respectable for an Orcess.
Perhaps you would care to see a private demonstration of some uses of goose feathers?
-- Korisien Fayne Roh

Norvan Patt -- My fee for granting you an initiatory win is two eagles, payable in
cash as you leave the arena.  Have it ready. -- Juko Vernis, "Shiftyeyed Volunteer"
but not doing it for the fun of it all

                            Invitation to Newbie Managers
                                 by Hammer

     As a Captain of the Vendetta Cartel, Hammer has recently dissolved the Vendetta
Cartel Crimson Ascension Family.  Lady Martilyo and Rook are NO LONGER members of the
Vendetta Cartel.
     The Vendetta Cartel is divided into "Families" under the leadership of Captains;
who have been appointed by the VC God Father known throughout the dueling land as
Master Darque.
     Hammer is now the Captain of the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe and the veteran
manager extends an invitation for prospective membership as a Probate [ONLY 2 Probate
positions are available in the VC Tarantula Tribe at the present time!] to any Newbie
Manager who qualifies under the following conditions:
     1. Newbie Manager MUST have Online Access for Email communications!  [Hammer is
presently living in Qatar and Lieutenants Maximillian and Firehawk are living in
Canada; so Email Communication is a MUST for consideration!]
     2. Newbie Manager MUST have the time and funds to create 2 new stables to be
placed in 2 separate Slow Arenas [the cost of running 1 stable in a Regular Arena!]
to actively participate on a monthly basis with the other 3 T-Tribe members of the
Vendetta Cartel!
     3. Newbie Manager MUST have the DESIRE to be an Active Member of the Vendetta
Cartel as a Tarantula Tribe trainee aka Probate; developing his/her managerial skills
under the mentorship of Hammer and the other VC members; thus proving themselves
worthy to become Vendetta Cartel Lieutenants in the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe!
     The Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe lives by the Feud; thereby prospective
Probates are forewarned that membership guarantees instant Friends and instant
Enemies!
     Any prospective Probates who 1.) seek to improve their managerial
insights/abilities under the counsel of Hammer and other Vendetta Cartel members 2.)
desire to be active members of an Active Alliance that WILL NOT Dissolve in a Few
Months; building lasting friendships while enjoying Feuding with Common Enemies 3.)
who enjoy sending their gladiators to Tournaments and would strive to see their
manager name listed among the TV and TC winners in the Mailer Tourney Newsletters as
a member of the Vendetta Cartel MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
     Send an Email to HammerDM@fastermail.com to introduce yourself and provide
Hammer with a short Bio of your managerial successes/failures and favorite/least
favorite fighting styles; with a listing of your active stable/stables for Hammer to
verify in the online newsletters.
     Hammer will choose the 2 prospective Probates for membership in the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe on the basis of who he decides will be most suited [to
Hammer's purposes as the T-Tribe Captain!] from among those responding to this All
Arena Ad on a first response/first acceptance or rejection basis!
     -- Hammer; Vendetta Cartel Captain/WordSmith and WeaponSmith of the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe
