                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for JADE MOUNTAIN.  What was the name of that 
team who got 3-0-0 this turn for a total 114-126-11 you ask?  (Sure)  PARANOID 
ASYLUM's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for ARIA?  DARK TOADS' 
proud of her after beating GYHARD and getting 30 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  SPIKE's match with THE CORINTHIAN cost him a loss of 10 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  P'JERIN stopped WONDERFUL dead in his tracks!  
Who was the wiseguy that said JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Green Axe?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  DARK TOADS 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 259-151-6 record really that scary?  I don't know 
what PARANOID ASYLUM's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from DARK TOADS, that's fer sher.  Can SAND DANCERS' WOODY be more popular than me?  
He 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.  I'm always kinda bummed when a decent 
warrior gets killed.  GYHARD, of FIFTH QUARTER had a 11-5-0 when he got bumped off by 
ARIA.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you 
guys smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Yerix -- And you SHOULD be paranoid!  Don't you see what your manager's done to you?  
Set you up!  Because your arena name is actually Xirey spelled backwards, and you 
know what THAT means! -- Tabatan
P.S.  And learning four skills at once?  That makes it worse.  Lots worse.

Samsara -- (brooding deeply)  Every time I reconsider the "gladiator stuff," someone 
comes along and reminds me that I signed a contract.  I really hate it when that 
happens. -- Woody
P.S.  But you'll notice that I AM still teaching.  That's in my contract, too.

Wicked -- Why couldn't you be a cute, wicked chick?  That'd be SOME fun, at least.  
But a wicked guy?  Bah. -- Volto Leeni the disgusted

Samarium -- I thought you were a place to keep fish.  (Assuming that anyone wanted to 
keep fish, especially live fish.) -- Treenva Taral
P.S.  And, no, nobody told me I could fight.  The very idea!  They said I could 
TEACH.

Otavas -- I don't know where YOU came from, you runt, but I want you to go BACK 
there.  It's too embarrassing. -- Arnal Redaxe the too-embarrassed

Zalgor -- Maybe we need to investigate the possibiity of a "personals generator."  Or 
as Debby Tonte says, "Get someone to write for you." -- Li Dan

Witch -- If you're going to leave as a Lady Protector....  No, wait, YOU are female.  
It's Wicked that isn't.  Sorry.  Got you confused. -- Woody

                       Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups
                                  Hosted by Hammer

     Niytyole Island DM 33 has dwindled to the point where as of T-482 [duedate
November 3, 2004] there were only 2 active stables listed with 3 inactive stables in
a once thriving and lively regular arena.
     During the past 40+ cycles Hammer has been hosting the Hammer Run for the Roll
Ups in DM 33.
     Thus far only the Ripper and Slasher categories have produced winners to claim
the 5 New Team Roll Ups Prize for being the first declared Style Master of their
respective categories to graduate.
     Every contending stable has gone inactive for one reason or another, including
CASINO HAMMERZ, over the past several months.
     Now DM 33 faces the harsh reality that if RSI chooses to close any arenas due to
little or no interest, Niytyole Island could very well head the list of endangered
regular arenas!
     In an effort to preserve his beloved island, Hammer is announcing the
continuation of the Hammer Run for the Roll Ups; combined with the Hammer 500 which
will conclude both contests on T-500 [duedate July 13, 2005] should DM 33 continue to
remain open in the coming months.
     Attention Hammer Runners!
     The Hammer Run is for 0 FE Basic Arena Warriors ONLY.  Participants MUST Be
Declared in the P-ads On or Before their First DM 33 Basic Arena Fight to Qualify as
a Hammer Runner!  Winners of Each Category will receive 5 New Team Roll Up Gift
Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  [On the condition that they
Graduate on or before T-500; see amended rules below!]
     The following Style Master categories remain open with a listing of how many
declared contestants are still entered and their W/L recognition record at the time
of their disappearance from the Hammer Run competition:

     As you can plainly see, the Hammer Run is still wide open in several categories,
depending upon whether or not the deactivated stables are reactivated for the Hammer
500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups contest!
     Any declared warrior who succeeds in graduating by T-500 will win 5 New Team
Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of Hammer!  Gift Certs will be
awarded as soon as possible upon official graduation if the graduation occurs prior
to T-500.
     On T-500 the highest ranked ACTIVE declared warrior in the category(s) without a
Graduate will win 2 New Team Roll Ups Gift Certificates mailed from RSI courtesy of
Hammer!
     Additional Hammer 500-Hammer Run for the Roll Ups Gift Cert Prizes:
     Five (5) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager whose warrior claims the
Duelmaster Throne on T-500.
     Two (2) Gift Certs will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
as the highest Active Challenger Champion, Champion, Challenger Adept, Adept,
Challenger Initiate and Initiate on T-500.
     In the event that NO Duelmaster is seated upon the Duelmaster Throne on T-500
there will be Three (3) Gift Certs awarded to the managers whose Active warriors are
tied for recognition points at the Top of the Challenger Champions recognition
standings.  [Therefore, the Top CC will be awarded 3 Gift Certs instead of 2 for
being ranked as the highest CC on T-500].
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) graduate on
T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) receive
their graduation announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager(s) whose warrior(s) are listed
in the Top Warrior Of Each Style newsletter announcement on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the
Chartered Recognition Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the
Unchartered Recognition Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as the
Popularity Leader on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose warrior is listed as This

Top Career Honors Chartered Team on T-500.
     One (1) Gift Cert will be awarded to the manager whose stable is listed as the
Top Career Honors Unchartered Team on T-500.
     SHOULD RSI CHOOSE TO CLOSE DM 33 PRIOR TO T-500 ONLY THE HIGHEST ACTIVE DECLARED
STYLE MASTER CONTESTANTS WILL BE AWARDED TWO (2) GIFT CERTS AND ALL OTHER PRIZE
CATEGORIES WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID BY HAMMER!!!!!!!!!
     The purpose of this contest is to restore DM 33 to a lively and entertaining
arena!
     Hammer is willing to foot the Prize bill in a last ditch effort to save Niytyole
Island from deletion if RSI and the Gladiatorial Commission decide that more arenas
need to be closed due to lack of participation and interest.
     Should this effort fail to spare DM 33 from deletion, then Hammer is prepared to
transfer CASINO HAMMERZ to another arena if Niytyole Island is closed by RSI and the
Gladiatorial Commission.

Battle Royal 4
     The Battle Royal arena contests are one of the purest tests of manager skill
available. The rules are simple.  The scoring is simple.  The updates are live.  If
you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.
