                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ERINIKA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  One team deserves 
special mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 3-0-0.  Keep it up, DUDS!  MVP 
award for BLOODLUST?  SLOW 'N EASY's proud of him after beating VETERAN MERCENARY and 
getting 19 points.  Was that a tear I saw in BULL MARKET's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't DEMOGORGON fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  THE BULLS was ERINIKA's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why 
BAATANAR'RITEZU's been avoiding THE BULLS so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?  Can BAATANAR'RITEZU's MOLOCH be more popular than me?  It was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ERINIKA is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Erinika -- Royalty rises to the top.  Here I am!  Duds, Top Team On The Move.  Bow
down, boys. -- Amy A. Airhead, Duds princess

Baatanar Bozos -- Another downchallenge, huh?  Afraid to send Andra to feud Lug?
Don't blame you for your fear.  Thanks for sending that loser, Moloch with all that
worthless experience.  Lug enjoyed the win, Chump. -- Amy A. Airhead, Duds Princess

Moloch -- Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah! -- Lug (the winner)

Andrawhatever -- You ain't cool enough to run with me, Twink! -- Endu Endu

Quasit -- Well challenged and well fought.  I will put on my hat and move to the
corner. -- Dunce

P. Beggar -- I love it when you get down on your knees.... -- Bimbo

Bulls -- You are so full of it! -- Amy A. Airhead, Duds princess

Bimbo -- Shaddup (SLAP!)  We earned our 50%+ record in North Fork, where there is
REAL competition...until Asmo decided to move us to *this* lame arena.  For some pig-
headed reason.  Asmo makes the challenges, and he challenges to **WIN**...as you may
note, there aren't a lot of choices here--you or Crip--and no thanks on the mega-up-
challenge! -- Andy (NOT Andramelockamon to you)

4 May 2005
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
