                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARADI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
NATURAL DISASTERS is pushed out of top team by THE MISGUIDED, who came from 3rd with 
a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for VOUGEOOT, whose 2-3-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 12th.  METAL 
MELTDOWN stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 8 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The THE MISGUIDED guild has had 
a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ICHED fought STEVIE and gained 23 points and 
contributed to VOUGEOOT's 2-3-0.  HOLLY SKULL has lost to ASSHE-MASTER, falling 15 
points, while helping make CHEER-O-KEE'S a 1-3-0 turn.  This turn TYPHOON XXII 
challenged BRUSHFIRE in what was ARADI's Title bout.  And all eyes were on BRUSHFIRE 
this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ARADI has a new victor!  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Blind Cyclops Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  NATURAL DISASTERS has cause to 
stand tall, as they were ARADI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided NATURAL DISASTERS stable the most?  Believe it 
or not, it was 4000 BLOWS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
BRUSHFIRE from NATURAL DISASTERS was ARADI's most challenged warrior this turn.  Well 
now, what do you expect when someone like SON OF BLOODLUST from 4000 BLOWS challenges 
down 24 points to fight TSUNAMI of NATURAL DISASTERS?  It pains me to see warriors 
take advantage of the system like this.  SON OF BLOODLUST bested TSUNAMI, as if it 
surprises anyone.  In a brave attempt, ANGRY SANTA from DEATH STUDS VII challenged up 
18 points to fight BALLROOM BLITZ from the METAL MELTDOWN stable.  ANGRY SANTA 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was beat by BALLROOM BLITZ and ended up 
with 92 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Congratulations go out to THE MISGUIDED, with SPEEDY revenging a 
bloodfeud against CHEER FULL OWL of CHEER-O-KEE'S.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

JGW -- Whim daddy doo whoppa doo!  Got oley rolly Manageronious lotsa whatsa smack

Lady Sue and Editor too,
Book for safari in Aradi-doo.
Many writings false and true,
TOGS it is, just for you.

Brought to you by The Consortium Bard

     Once in the arena of Aradi,
     There was occasion to throw a party.
     A birthday, you ask,
     Or the end of a task?
     No, just the Editor gone dotty.
          -- Ed., who has taken just a wee bit of license with the pronunciation--how
             do YOU rhyme Aradi?

Musings from The Consortium Scribe (in Creepster's absence)

JGW -- You run your mouth well.  You will fit perfectly into TOGS.  Be careful not to
make Nuln jealous!

The Creepster would have been back in Aradi by now, but apparently Soultaker, his
court-appointed-guardian, has not yet signed the release papers from The Sanitarium.
Rumors are that Soultaker is procrastinating to allow his approval ratings to rise in
Aradi.

No single wit over fifteen?  Did someone say that?  This is the home of no wit over
fifteen.  After all, the FONZ managers' home is Aradi.

One-Timer -- (justly incensed <cocoanut>)  That was more than once!  How can you
expect me to do it right if you don't give the right signals?  It's all YOUR fault.
-- Pretty Boy

Chinese Sparerib -- Euwh!  Ginger, isn't it?  And licorice.  I don't like ginger and
licorice.  You Chinese don't season things right. -- Flower
P.S.  And what's the deal with the bird's nest on your head?

     Maybe the bird's nest balances the yang of the ginger and fennel? -- Ed.

Dr. Feelgood -- How can you be someone's best friend?  YOU aren't a dog, and everyone
knows that DOGS are the best friends anyone can have.  We're always glad to see you.
We love you unconditionally even when you're being dumb.  WE don't borrow money.  And
on and ON, you know. -- Stevie

Dandy-Lion -- You ROARED at me, you're just a big CAT.  I hate that. -- The Tail

Ace of Spades -- I bet I can dig just as fast as you can.  And *I* have more fun
doing it. -- Bully Boy

Ed. -- NOOOOO! -- Temp Ed.

     Heh! -- Ed.

                             HAMMER ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

     Be it known from the highest mountains to the darkest alleys of Alastari that
the veteran manager known far and wide as Hammer has now officially retired from
sponsoring contests as of September 15, 2005.
     What a long time ago was a fun motivated activity to help promote our common
DM/D2 gaming interest in an effort to promote the growth and competitiveness of
selected arenas has become a far from fun experience.
     In other words Hammer has had it!
     The combination of real life situations interfering with the time needed to
effectively sponsor a contest, plus the attitudes expressed during such sponsorship
interference has led to Hammer closing his personal coin coffers and retiring from
his planned sponsorship of any future contests.
     There are others in our close knit gaming community who are well able to step up
to the plate and continue sponsoring contests that make the basic game a fun
experience for all those who choose to compete and interact in such future endeavors.
     Hammer thanks all managers both active and inactive who helped to make the
Hammer sponsored contests a historical and entertaining experience well worth the
time, effort and money spent over the past several years.
     May the Cheers and the Jeers of future contests build upon the legacies of those
who have paved the way in years gone by to help make this game what it is today.
     Hammer has no regrets for the part he has played in that history.

19 September 2005
I'd like to say hello to everyone I know that is still around after my being gone for
five years.  Hope to see you all on the sands, and may your weapons strike true and
your shields protect you (except, of course, against MY warriors *grin*)!! -- Lord
Xiang, D2-101

5 October 2005
To those once of Willaf -- It's time to come back to the sands.  I'm back,
exclusively at Willaf.... -- Kurd the Vivisectionist, Your Better
