     Greetings to you all as we return once again to the white sands of the white arena of Andorak!  We had 12 challenges this turn, with only one DC.  That in and of itself is a vote.  We also had two of our sometimes vocal, sometimes not Andorian manage
     ALFALFA BIRD (60-3283) (67-45-0,208) of SUPERIOR FORCES II TV challenged FREE BOX (60-4964) (25-14-1,252) of BOXES.  ALFALFA BIRD slimly won victory over FREE BOX in a 3 minute Challenge fight.  Up 44.  A HUGE victory for Manager, as Free Box wasn't

     CARNAGE XIX (20-3386) (48-20-1,183) of DEATH STUDS VIII challenged GOKU (46-3655) (32-33-2,208) of DRAGONBALL Z.  CARNAGE XIX was overpowered by GOKU in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  Up 25!  One of our bigger challenges for the turn, earning
     PEPSI (68-8510) (53-27-0,190) of OVERWORLD challenged HEATHER (48-3062) (88-163-7,191) of STARS.  PEPSI was narrowly defeated by HEATHER in a crowd pleasing 5 minute Challenge match.  Up 1.  *Yawn*  I wish I could say I slept through this one, but Sa
     JUPITER (44-2554) (60-57-0,208) of SHERWOOD FOREST challenged VISION (26-1573) (48-26-2,208) of HEADBANGERS.  JUPITER viciously subdued VISION in a crowd pleasing 2 minute brutal Challenge fight.  Even.
     HOMELESS PRINCE (22-6012) (29-12-1,180) of KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged SANDS (11-4123) (41-62-3,171) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  HOMELESS PRINCE was bested by SANDS in a 1 minute Challenge competition.  Down 9.  Our only DC for the turn, and the DCer got his

     GREAT BEAR (74-2851) (22-16-0,138) of TOTEM challenged VAJRA VALMEJAR (11-4928) (22-31-0,138) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  GREAT BEAR won victory over VAJRA VALMEJAR in a 2 minute Challenge duel.  Even.  Boring.
     BABY (43-2863) (22-10-2,145) of DARK SIDE challenged WARLOCK (66-2473) (69-108-2,180) of X-FORCE.  BABY was overpowered by WARLOCK in a 2 minute uneven Challenge duel.  Up 35!  Second biggest challenge of the turn, and perhaps the dumbest.  Everyone 
     SONIC TACO (30-4337) (20-11-1,100) of TRIP OUT challenged HUMMEL (14-1404) (43-96-2,123) of MIKES.  SONIC TACO was defeated by HUMMEL in a exciting 3 minute gruesome Challenge fight.  Up 23.  Hummel held off the faster Taco by taking an antacid befor
     LEADFOOT (40-3516) (14-7-0,44) of TACO GODS challenged ERICKA BEARICKA (63-2461) (17-8-0,82) of MONSTER CHILD.  LEADFOOT overpowered ERICKA BEARICKA in a exciting 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Up 38!  This was the fight to end all fights, the 
     GEORGE BUSH (22-1708) (21-11-1,75) of CONSPIRACY INC. challenged NIXIE SEASPRITE (11-4992) (23-20-0,76) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  GEORGE BUSH was bested by NIXIE SEASPRITE in a 1 minute Challenge conflict.  Up 1.  Boring.  I shouldn't even comment on this
     And last but nearly least, another random matchup for the top spot in all of Andorak!!!
     HELIO (32-3733) (55-49-4,372) of ULTIMATE ACCELERATION fought SALINE LAMORAK (11-4261) (35-59-0,232) of SCARLET KNIGHTS.  An insurmountable difference of 140 points.  HELIO demolished SALINE LAMORAK in a popular 1 minute mismatched Title match.
     Like I said...insurmountable.  Good try, Saline...at least you didn't avoid the hits that kept coming your way like some cowardly lunger, dodging and bobbing and weaving like a scared little bug.  Helio, let's have a damn column, okay?

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Deadpool -- Excellent fight, sir!  If you had done just a tad bit less jumping
around, who knows what would have happened.  Luckily for me, I was able to conserve
endurance as I lay on the ground, attempting to fight you off.  Care for a rematch?
-- Je Suis Bien

Michael Honorblade -- Not much honor in letting me get as close as you did if you ask
me.... -- Vision

Warlock -- I love you, I really do. -- Gimethatshield

Warpath -- If you hadn't had let me win that first time we fought, you could have
saved me all these losses thinking I can take you.  Maybe in a year or so.... --
Homeless Prince

Diesel -- C'mon sissy boy, let's do it again! -- Maximus

The Sentinel -- Well, you have to admit, my down challenging is much better than it
used to be.  We'll see if I can just keep the DC's to Papaiz, "for the most part". --
Sablon-O-Vlad
P.S.  Man, I kill one of your guys....

Khalli -- Don't listen to The Sentinel, keep fawning. -- SOV
P.S.  As requested, FYI we are sending 4 DC's Papaiz's way this turn.  Don't give me
*too much* grief in the spy report about em'.

     SoV -- Please...don't give in to the dark side...come back to the light.... --
     Khalli

Doc Steele -- I couldn't have said it better myself...well, maybe just a little
better, but you sure did a fine job of setting em' straight. :) -- Sablon-O-Vlad

Hey yeah!  I like the idea of the King's Sentinel setting the tone for if down
challenging is looked on in a good or bad light in the spy report.  Whichever manager
has the throne, if his/her views are known, that is what is expected out of the arena
next turn, as well as how the spy reporter spins it.  Of course you will still have
managers that will do things how they see fit, but I for one would be willing to live
by this if it happened. -- Sablon-O-Vlad

Helio -- How about a few words for us commoners. -- Detective Kellumbo

Khalli -- It seems I wasn't paying attention when you called for a vote, because I
didn't get it.  It seems the voting was to determine whether downchallenging would be
condoned in Andorak.  I really wish that you didn't feel such a poll was necessary--
this is Andorak, after all!  I will vote against downchallenging, but note my
disapproval in general.  Also, I am wondering if we are voting to change the way the
GC manages challenges here, or are we just trying to re-align the spirit of the
arena?  Either way, I vote against downchallenging, so your answer does not alter my
stance. -- Generalissimo Puerco
P.S.  Although they're probably not listening, I'll try to get my other alliance-
mates, besides Adie, to vote.

     Vote tallied.  I see that one of your alliance mates already answered a little
     further down.  That's a big shift when there are so few votes cast. -- Khalli

JRK, Armalias -- Tell Khalli whether or not you support downchallenging in Andorak.
-- Generalissimo Puerco

Khalli, Doc Steele -- It's a neat idea, that being leaning the arena toward the top
team's point of view, but the top team spot has a tendency to be rather canalized (as
Boxes demonstrates).  The post of King's Sentinel, as Khalli suggested, is a better
choice.  It offers more potential liability while still providing the opportunity for
a dominant warrior to "rule" over the arena for a lengthy period of time.  I think
this could infuse the top of the ranks with some excitement.  Perhaps you, Khalli,
could think of some diagnostic questions for a new King's Sentinel to answer when
they take the post, that would guide you in the way you write. -- Generalissimo
Puerco

     The vote is still rather close, so I am leaning towards giving this a try.  I
     will have some details drawn up with the next spyreport, so be watching!--Khalli

Sentinel -- I'll challenge good warriors when I bring a good warrior to Andorak.
Free Box is terrible.  Besides, I am not in a play by your rules kind of mood.  I'm
more in a thorn in the side kind of place.  I dissolved my deal with Manager when I
got into that flame war with your Andorian sisters in Aruak City.  Manager is now
free to avoid me, and I am free to down challenge.  I offered him a deal where only
Aruak City would be the exception, but not surprisingly he jumped at a chance to get
his Avoids back and declined.  Here in Andorak I am afraid that whole thing with the
spy reporter last time I was active, along with a fresh crop of Andorian managers to
despise, has left me with no choice but to play the villain.  As for your "sack up"
comment, I find that to be a typical hypocritical Andorian remark; considering I have
been trying to get you to agree to a No-Avoids Pact for years.  Leave the pointless
goading to your new generation, it is beneath such an old master as yourself. -- Doc
Steele

     Just exactly what "thing with the spy reporter" are you talking about?  Did I
     manage to offend you in some way last time you were here? -- Khalli

Spy Reporter -- You let me know what you decide, so I can bring in the appropriate
warriors to town at the split. -- Doc Steele

     "Manager" -- The name's Khalli.  Khalli Dyr'eel.  And I'll lay out the details
     next cycle. -- Khalli

     Except when it's me, so some confusion is understandable. -- The Saint,
     everyone's favourite substitute *sigh*

Khalli -- Count the votes of all my many managerial personas as resounding "nays" to
your DC poll.  This is Andorak, you idiot.  There shouldn't be DCs HERE.  Now, I am
practicing Doc Steele's way of the warrior in Primus, since that is the rule of the
land there, and it's the only way to be competitive...but I'd do the same thing in
any arena...I play to the flavor of the people there.  And in Andorak, that means no
DCing (as that has long been the acceptable norm). -- Armalias Skyhawk, et al

                            Invitation to Newbie Managers
                                 by Hammer

     As a Captain of the Vendetta Cartel, Hammer has recently dissolved the Vendetta
Cartel Crimson Ascension Family.  Lady Martilyo and Rook are NO LONGER members of the
Vendetta Cartel.
     The Vendetta Cartel is divided into "Families" under the leadership of Captains;

positions are available in the VC Tarantula Tribe at the present time!] to any Newbie
Manager who qualifies under the following conditions:
     1. Newbie Manager MUST have Online Access for Email communications!  [Hammer is
presently living in Qatar and Lieutenants Maximillian and Firehawk are living in
Canada; so Email Communication is a MUST for consideration!]
     2. Newbie Manager MUST have the time and funds to create 2 new stables to be
placed in 2 separate Slow Arenas [the cost of running 1 stable in a Regular Arena!]
to actively participate on a monthly basis with the other 3 T-Tribe members of the
Vendetta Cartel!
     3. Newbie Manager MUST have the DESIRE to be an Active Member of the Vendetta
Cartel as a Tarantula Tribe trainee aka Probate; developing his/her managerial skills
under the mentorship of Hammer and the other VC members; thus proving themselves
worthy to become Vendetta Cartel Lieutenants in the Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe!
     The Vendetta Cartel Tarantula Tribe lives by the Feud; thereby prospective
Probates are forewarned that membership guarantees instant Friends and instant
Enemies!
     Any prospective Probates who 1.) seek to improve their managerial
insights/abilities under the counsel of Hammer and other Vendetta Cartel members 2.)
desire to be active members of an Active Alliance that WILL NOT Dissolve in a Few
Months; building lasting friendships while enjoying Feuding with Common Enemies 3.)
who enjoy sending their gladiators to Tournaments and would strive to see their
manager name listed among the TV and TC winners in the Mailer Tourney Newsletters as
a member of the Vendetta Cartel MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
     Send an Email to HammerDM@fastermail.com to introduce yourself and provide
Hammer with a short Bio of your managerial successes/failures and favorite/least
favorite fighting styles; with a listing of your active stable/stables for Hammer to
verify in the online newsletters.
     Hammer will choose the 2 prospective Probates for membership in the Vendetta
Cartel Tarantula Tribe on the basis of who he decides will be most suited [to
Hammer's purposes as the T-Tribe Captain!] from among those responding to this All

Arena Ad on a first response/first acceptance or rejection basis!
