                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARADI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at RED DOG 
GANG left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by MY BRAIN ON 
CHLORINE.  Good show!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as CHEER-O-KEE'S can attest...  Good things come to those 
who fight well, as MY BRAIN ON CHLORINE can attest, moving up by 3.  Practice pays 
for WILLOW, who pummelled MOUSTACHED RAT, to pocket 18 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 14 points to WILLOW.  
(Discrete enough, MOUSTACHED RAT?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by WILDFIRE, of NATURAL DISASTERS, who despite a 16-10-0 couldn't 
overcome ARADI's Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in NATURAL 
DISASTERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of LEGALESE, so did that sorry team shy from 
NATURAL DISASTERS If challenges were horses, VERDICT could open up a fast food joint! 
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Q:  What's a record 
like 6-16-0 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner:  
VERDICT of LEGALESE!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body 
parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ARADI would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything compare to the 
pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARADI?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Gameboy -- Don't you know any FUN games?  Like Chase the Stick, or Tug of War on a
Sock?  These are games that are WORTH playing, and they're not over in ten seconds,
either.  What's the point of a game that is over in ten seconds?  There was hardly
any chance to savor it! -- Flower

Trad -- (sneeze, hack, choke)  That chlorine is awful stuff!  Do you HAVE to use it
as a flea powder?  There are better things.  Some are even made from flowers and are
quite pleasant.  Except, presumably, for the fleas, but who cares about them, eh? --
Stevie

Chinese Sparerib -- Hoisin?  What's that?  Not that it really matters, because the
bone is the thing.  It's the BONE that lasts, and can be chewed on for hours and
hours.  Very good for the teeth, too, besides being (so they tell me) a fine source
of calcium.  And since you had several bones...that's why I buried some of them in
the sand, of course.  So I can come back for them later, after I finish with THIS
one.  Don't want to leave them lying around for any stray dog to make off with! --
King

Angry Naked Man -- (grinning)  You're so much FUN.  (nip, bite, snap)  And I just
love the way you enter into it all.  (nip, snap)  Jumping around, you know.  Lots of
fun!  Let's do it some more. -- Pretty Boy

Busted Nuts -- (severely)  Nuts aren't GOOD for dogs.  You shouldn't do that to your
four-footed friends. -- The Tail
P.S.  Not THAT kind of friends!  Cheese.  I forgot this was Aradi.

All you alliance-type people, I'm trying (again!) to get my alliance listing correct
and up to date.  Either send me a diplo (address it to The Saint) or send your
updates to me directly at Sue at solberg-mathews.com.  As you may guess, replace the
at with @ and you're good to go (I do hate spammy mail and this will end up on the
web).

I have information on the following alliances:  ADIO, Allied Axis, Armada,
Brotherhood of Justice, Brotherhood of the Blade, Cadre, CDC, Chaos, Inc., Circle of
Order, Company of Brothers, Consortium, Council of Lords, Couple Good Guys, Crimson
Vengeance, DOA, DOOMcorps, Enigmafia, Eurosquad, Fascist Federation, FONZ,
Frothingslosh Syndicate, GAPPDA, Homeland Alliance, IT Alliance, Jingoists, kLk,
Knights of the Covenant, LBA, League Arcane, Legion6, Living Essences, Lords and
Ladies of Darkness, Manic Union, Midnight Foundation, Minions of Diana, Monarchs of
Montezuma, NCA, NIMROD, R.A.G.E., Seventh Sons, The Firm, The French Connection,
Vendett@ United, and the Vendetta Cartel.

If you are a member of one of these alliances, let me know.  If you are a member of
some other alliance that isn't listed, let me know.  If you were at any point in your
past a part of one of these alliance but are now independent, also let me know.
Going inactive doesn't mean you get removed from this list; people are assumed to
still be in the same alliance when they return.  Even having everyone in an alliance
go inactive doesn't change anything.  If an alliance is officially disbanding, that's
another thing you have to let me know....

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:
     (P-ad declarations in parenthesis)

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,
depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer
500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.
     On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a
Graduate will win 2 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of
Hammer!
     Additional Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Gift Cert Prizes:
     Five (5) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager whose warrior claims the
Duelmaster Throne on T-500.
     Two (2) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
as the highest Active Challenger Champion, Champion, Challenger Adept, Adept,
Challenger Initiate and Initiate on T-500.
     In the event that NO Duelmaster is seated upon the Duelmaster Throne on T-500
there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are
tied for recognition points at the Top of the Challenger Champions recognition
standings.  [Therefore, the Top CC will be awarded 3 Gift Certs instead of 2 for
being ranked as the highest CC on T-500].
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) graduate on
T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) receive

     SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED
STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.
