                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KYR'TERR, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that 
for a perceptive observation?) as SUPERIOR FORCES ZC can attest...  OUTCASTS posted a 
nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for EYE OF THE 
KNEE DOLL, who pummelled MORROLAN E'DRIEN, to pocket 28 points.  MORROLAN E'DRIEN 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to EYE OF THE KNEE DOLL 
and losing 25 points in the process!  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as I 
OF THE KNEE DOLL of HAZAARDS OF CLONING met the Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a 
new Duelmaster were disappointed by I OF THE KNEE DOLL, of HAZAARDS OF CLONING, who 
despite a 7-6-1 couldn't overcome KYR'TERR's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
KYR'TERR is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of OUTCASTS, alone and unchallenged.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of HAZAARDS OF CLONING, so did that sorry team 
shy from OUTCASTS If challenges were horses, AYE OF THE NEEDLE could open up a fast 
food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Congratulations, 
HIAWATHA.  The manager of OUTCASTS should have sent RENN to the Dark Arena for having 
a 5-4-1 long ago.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be 
wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

                            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 duelingland 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

     Our next Winter Face-to-Face will be held on Martin Luther King weekend, Friday 
through Sunday, 14-16 January 2005, at the Embassy Suites in Tempe, Arizona (4400 S 
Rural Rd--this is the same hotel as last year).  Room rates are $139.00 per night, 
1-4 occupancy, which includes breakfast.  The rooms are blocked.  The reservations

manager's reception.  There is a free shuttle to the airport, as well as free parking.  
The hotel is located down the freeway in Tempe.  All rooms have high speed internet 
(for an extra charge).  There is a fitness center, jacuzzi, and pool, and of course a 
bar and Mexican restaurant inside the hotel.  And there's Denny's right across the 
street.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
