                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of AMEN-TEI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with JHANA?  She actually 
beat CAR AND DRIVER's MARIO ANDRETTI, and walked away with 11 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at SAFE HAVEN while they watched DEEVINE clobber HOBO JO.  
She lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for SAILS OF CHARON's outstanding member, Duelmaster SEXTANT.  
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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, MARIO ANDRETTI!  Don't make idle boasts, they 
may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of AMEN-TEI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Lacking our fight reports--curse the couriers!--we can't comment on any intimate
details of the fights.  But at least the on-line newsletter, er, the one that comes
by lightning pigeon, you know, allows us to behave as though we had some idea what
happened. -- the Wayfarers

Lockheart -- I am always devastated by you.  What can I say?  You're a devastating
man. -- Hobo Jo

Deevine -- "Viciously"?  And "brutal," too.  After we've been such good friends,
bonding under the dryer hoods at the hairdressers and all?  I'm heartbroken. --
Passer By

Jhana -- (bitterly)  I didn't need to be devastated TODAY.  I have a job interview,
and I just can't give a good interview when I've been devastated. -- Selaunah
P.S.  For a day job.  It isn't like I could SUPPORT myself doing this arena stuff,
after all.

Honest Merchant?  I think NOT. -- Shady Lady
P.S.  And he deserved everything I did to him.
P.P.S.  And more.

                            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
