                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  It was a tough week for STDS, to drop 6 places in the rankings.  
Coming up with a solid 4-0-0 outing, STORMTROOPERS has advanced 6 places in the 
rankings.  SLYTHERIN HOUSE is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 6th 
place to 6th place.  RED STRIPE ALL-STARS seems to have it's eye on the top team 
spot, and if they continue having 4-1-0 weeks they may get it!  Hey everybody, watch 
out for <CORUSCATOR>, who flew up 25 points in the rankings after mashing DURANY like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
DURANY, who dropped 17 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
<CORUSCATOR>.  Drawing on all of hers experience as a 14-7-1 warrior, SUMMER went for 
the Duelmastership against <COOKIE JONES> this week.  It's a proud day for the FORCE 
OF FIVE stable, as their warrior, SUMMER, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 
5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the DAIYLA KIV arena.  Did 
you hear that CAT FIGHT was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of CAT FIGHT's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause FAULTY PREMISES beats feet every time CAT FIGHT 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this SLOPPY DRUNK you ask, with 78 
points and a 10-14-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Getting lots of flowers 
from sympathetic fans was SLOPPY DRUNK, who was successfully challenged by VIRGIN 
QUEEN who had a mere 23 points more than SLOPPY DRUNK.  Definition of petty:  VIRGIN 
QUEEN won victory over SLOPPY DRUNK, a mismatch of 23 points.  Was it guts or an 
overtaxed mental capacity that had JORU MANE challenge up 26 points in the rankings 
to take on SYR-DAVAN?  Trading many whacks on the head and a loss for 1 recognition 
points, JORU MANE shows that a guy doesn't have to be good to get places.  Can any 
one out there say 'weasel'?  Oh well, just saying GREGORY GOYLE will do.  He 
challenged 17 points down to trash IN THE PIT!.  Definition of petty:  GREGORY GOYLE 
overcame IN THE PIT!, a mismatch of 17 points.  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, ULTRA ENDEAVOR went after OREL HERSHISER, who was higher by 18 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, ULTRA ENDEAVOR bested OREL HERSHISER.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  FRANKIE THE FISH defied all odds and slew 
TALL SHARO-SKA in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as 
TALL SHARO-SKA's meat is notoriously tough.  STAN THE MAN defied all odds and slew 
TALL SHARO-SKA in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as 
TALL SHARO-SKA's meat is notoriously tough.  FATHER WILLIAM defied all odds and slew 
FARLITHAN THE CAT in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as 
FARLITHAN THE CAT's meat is notoriously tough.  There's got to be more reason for the 
sending of CROP DUSTER to the Dark Arena than his record (3-1-1).  Anybody got any 
ideas INSIGNIFICANCE?  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, DREIHDEN BUM was 
mashed by KRAGO, who let DREIHDEN BUM know that killing members of STORMTROOPERS is a 
no-no.  Congrats to JADOW for revenging the death of his teammate (but more 
importantly, feeding FRIGID AIR a bit of dirt).  Here's some advice:  warriors with 
little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the DAIYLA KIV 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

All -- Good news for the arena, Gabmaz fell in the tourney.  He was 9(1)-8-11-15-15-
14-13.  What bites is that he was +4 AT, Ambi and at least +1 DEF.  The good news is
that he died with 10 FE.  Maybe he will make it back in a dead tourney before the end
of this tourney. -- Bum

All -- Durany will be retiring after this last fight.  While he has been my most
successful WS, I have another one in AD that I will run before him.  Here is Durany
for all to see.  13(2)-13(1)-13-15-17-3-13 Good End, Good Damage and takes a lot of
damage.  After the 3 stat raises in his first 3 turns he got no noticables.  As for
faves MO/VL, MS, no tactics and Parry learn, and he is mode. -- Bum

Zalgor and BOTB -- Had a great time in this tourney; thanks for doing it.  As much as
I would like to play in the next one, I will pass.  I am wanting to graduate about 7
warriors in 2 other arenas and run them in AD.  I hope to play again after your next
one. -- Bum

Upinya -- Since you couldn't come right out and say it in Trocar (54), I will accept
your challenge, but I will not go to Dragonhead where you have the advantage with
warriors that already have experience on the sands.  I will, however, challenge you
to go to arena 36 for the kill contest that will be held there shortly.  So I mean,
what's the deal; you're still avoiding me after all the turns for my bloodfeud
expired.  You have a lot of nerve challenging me to another arena when you won't face
me in the one that we are presently in.  I mean, it's okay if you are scared of
Tarapyn, but his record, my friend, is deceiving.  As soon as I run him again he will
be facing his doom, unless you wish to face him before he dies.  Whatever, I have
talked too much to your scared ass already, so I will see ya in 36, if you have the

guts. -- Youngblood
P.S.  My alliance will be there as you requested, but I wouldn't worry about them--
unless you talk to them like you talk to me, then you will be sorry...loser.

Jay Howell -- Yeahyeahyeah.  Big words, little boy, but experience beats style
advantages oftener than you might think. -- Syr-Davan

Dreihden Plunger -- Well, OUCH.  I thought you came about the stopped up drain. --
Tilaen tyl Sanh

Rick Dempsey -- O-KAY!  That's the way I like to see a fight going. -- Pelak ten Zorn

Kages Fault -- Is this like a sanandres fault?  You know, earthquakes and stuff like
that. -- Donstan
P.S.  I don't like earthquakes, myself, but I suppose you can't help it.

Jadow -- You wicked person!  You DELIBERATELY came along and defeated me, didn't you?
You just couldn't STAND to see me rising through the ranks.  That's the way it is
with wicked people, see someone doing well and you just HAVE to bring them down.
Huh.  I'm sure glad I'm not YOU. -- Tsirell

     Come one, come all, to the greatest contest in Alastari!  The Third Annual Turf
War will be in North Fork (DM 47) starting in about 6-7 turns....  C'mon and get your
team some experience, and get declared!

13 November 2003
Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex
