                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JADE MOUNTAIN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now let's all watch SAND 
DANCERS' heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, 
big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see LARCENY win a fight and 
gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TYPHOID TONYA beat HABEAS CORPUS and HABEAS 
CORPUS lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like JADE MOUNTAIN has some 
guts at least, PREMEDITATION the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  
CHILLY CHARLIE challenged JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as CHILLY CHARLIE takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Green Axe, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JADE MOUNTAIN's 
trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  PARANOID ASYLUM was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DARK TOADS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Whoa!  I'll even buy THE LARCH a drink tonight!  
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on its good side!  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

offer this gesture and I take it as such. -- TigToad

likely take serious issue with my learning. -- Nathaniel

Jekyll -- [Contemplatin in the Manse]  Okay, my slasher lost.  But your *ahem* has

great teachability and learnability.  I mean, three skills from my puddly, really...
he doesn't have the skills to teach three skills.  But we feel your pain, still, and
attempts to alleviate your suffering haven't been totally tossed-over. -- Still

All -- The Larch--good running joke, that, (MPFC) but the handwriten's on the wall.
Might'll try'm over...in another arena. -- Still

excuse will do. -- Woody

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
     More info:  Master Darque, MasterDarqueDM@aol.com, or Jack Wolfspider,
russtulp@aol.com.  Or diplo Darque Forces (428) or Dynastic (433) in Arena 45.
