                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  For every 
winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at X-POSSE, who went 
down to 2nd from 7th.  Life is tough.  Don't these new hotshots make you sick (or, if 
they fought you, hurt)?  ARCTIC STORM, on their very first turn, went 4-1-1.  Our 
battling duelmaster RYSHER has managed to hold the title, fending off M. CHARDINEE's 
none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, DRAGONHEAD.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that ORIGINALE BASTARDS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing 
the personal hygiene of ORIGINALE BASTARDS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you 
guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause VERMIN beats feet every 
time ORIGINALE BASTARDS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this *KIM 
COOKIES you ask, with 104 points and a 19-15-4 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  
In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, MINDQUAKE went after 2 PHAT 2, who was 
higher by 18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, MINDQUAKE defeated 2 PHAT 2.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Well, just when you thought it was safe to 
put a new warrior in the arena.  No no!  BRASIDAS, a mere boy, was slain by SOURDOUGH 
this turn.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the DRAGONHEAD giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

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.

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
