                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

I've finally decided to get professional help and have joined Bashaholics Anonymous!
They've got a 12 step program to help me with my 'problem'.  I've admitted that I'm
powerless because I run and design too many bashers.  I figure since it is the first
step, it must be the most important, so I've made entirely sure that there is no way
anyone can take this step away from me.  One tournament prize of immortality!

And since I know that there is a God, that takes care of step two!  Man, I'm on a
roll here.  This program is great!  I'll be cured before I know it!  This step is
even easier than the first step.

The third step is to turn my life over to the care of God!  That one, while not as
easy, is something I've striven for most of my adult life, so I guess I'm on the
right path here.  And now that I've joined this wonderful program, hopefully that
will become even easier.

And the fourth step in the program is to take a fearless moral inventory.  Look in a
mirror and what do I see?  Myself, of course.  To fearlessly look in the mirror at
your own identity?  Well, if we are afraid to do that, we are kidding ourselves.

Looks like I'm about a third of the way there.  Glad to be here, Illis.  Looking
forward to crossing blades with you all.  I don't know how competitive I'll be, but I
expect to have a blast of fun with these guys.  There are managers who would cry
knowing what I used my immortality potion on.... -- Assurnasirbanipal

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ILLIS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Uncool, TEAM TOMORROW.  I mean 
1-4-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  The guys at HANGOVERS like really pulled together to get a 3-0-0 this 
turn, moving up by 6.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, CHAPEL ROCK!  
'Cause they got 4-1-1 and moved up to 3rd!  MVP award for FLAMING MOE?  HANGOVERS' 
proud of him after beating NULLAN VOID and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  GORI BLOODAXE got smashed by NAZARETH, and lost 15 points!  And I was 
just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome LONDON 
QUIREBOY.  Aren't CHAPEL ROCK proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said ILLIS' 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  TEAM TOMORROW was ILLIS' most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why VILE 
REAVERS' been avoiding TEAM TOMORROW so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared? 
Like, is AXE MISSER HAMMER popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of 
ILLIS!  He's got a 0-5-0, is that good?  SOUL SCOURGE is being unfair.  She's 
challenged down 17 against CANCER.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd 
better shut up) If SOUL SCOURGE can't beat a warrior 17 points below herself, that 
she CHALLENGED, she oughtta be selling food in the stands!  Some fights are really 
unfair.  How do you think GYMINOK feels about being challenged by CORSAIR, 32 points 
above him?  A lotta people lost a lotta money in a lotta bets, when CORSAIR 
challenged GYMINOK, 32 points below and lost!  Send 'im to the Dark Arena!  See if I 
ever talk to BALLAST again!  AXE MISSER HAMMER was so low when He challenged he.  
Hhmph!  Is this how SEA DOGS advances, by having their members (BALLAST) fight people 
that are really below them (AXE MISSER HAMMER)?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ILLIS ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What a bummer!  SLAKER got wasted by JUDAS PRIEST!  But with a 
16-28-1, I guess ISLANDERS aren't too bummed.  That was so totally rude when JUDAS 
PRIEST wasted SLAKER.  I think all you warriors in ILLIS should gang up on CHAPEL 
ROCK!  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (BLACKROCK vs. MASON THUNDERSTRIKE, 
that is.) Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Hello, all!  I am Melody of Megaera's Misses and I was sent here as an advance scout
to judge the worthiness of competition in this arena and decide whether my
illustrious manager should active our stable of warriors or not.  As a lover of the
fight, I sincerely hope Illis will prove to be up to par, so that I may return to my
passion!  See you on the sands!! -- Melody, Megaera's Misses (272)

Goat -- Heathen sends his regards.  Why don't we meet up at the local Inn and discuss
politics and who's who? -- Melody

Death Fest Fanatics -- The Gladiatorial Commission sent me another copy of the T-180
newsletter; however, it may be a cycle or two before I get results posted! --
Hammer/Your Death Fest Host

HEY!  We're not on the bottom anymore! -- The Ocelot of Observation, Kat

Ammer Ead -- I...uh...am not sure I understand what happened there.... -- The
Hairball of Hitherto, Kat

Hezrou -- Ok, we're done...honest.  It's just you've significantly raised our
pathetic win percentage so...we thank you. -- Kat

Hangovers -- Really, I'm trying to NOT break out into a Jimmy Buffet tune.... -- The
Failing Furball, Kat

"Take me away again...to Margaritaville...searchin' for my outlaw Hammer of War...."

Wise Old Wayne -- Not what I had hoped for, old boy.  Since it has now been
determined that one hundred fights or not, a warrior MUST have fourteen wins to get
out alive, I had HOPED for a win.  Remember that next time. -- Duff, who would still
like to beat Life of Osksi in the "number of fights before graduation stakes" but not
at the cost of his life, as that poor dufus in Jade Mountain did

Katze -- You're h'a pretty little thing to be so vicious. -- 'Ammer 'Head

London Quireboy -- (coughing and spitting)  Have you ever thought of WASHING?  What's
a poor vampiress to do with such a dirty donor? -- Wimpira

Umi -- Tell me that win was an illusion, eh? -- Slaker

Udun Hellfire -- You runts are always mean. -- Jan Pearl

Arutha -- See what? -- Jan Pearl

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.
Street Legal

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
