                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KALTOS, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for CRYING FIRE, who pummelled UGLY 
WALT, to pocket 14 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 11 points to CRYING FIRE.  (Discrete enough, UGLY WALT?) 
YONDER ORPHAN successfully staved off a grab for the roses by OSWALD QUORN of THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5.  Does KALTOS have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it 
one team in KALTOS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  
I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are KALTOS' warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  HIGH ELF in the Dark 
Arena wasn't enough for COMMON CRIMINAL of DUNGEON CELL.  Maybe that certain serving 
girl(?) at The Victory Tavern will be!  The manager at DUNGEON CELL must have some 
new strategy for sending TURNKEY, a warrior with 4-0-1, to the Dark Arena.  Watch 
this space!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in KALTOS is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Well, that's gotta hurt, Baby Blue.  Win your graduation, get sent to the Dark Arena,
and die at the claws of a Black Orc.  Ouch! -- Oswald Quorn for those who walk the
Middle Way

     At least s/he will get resurrected on the Isle.

Three-two, and that IDIOT Jerry Lee lost to an Ambitious Guard!  I guess Jerry
doesn't have any ambitions, not even an ambition to survive? -- Oswald Quorn

     Is that a threat?

Huh, what Ozzie didn't say is that while two of our wins were over standbys, *I*
defeated Crying Fire (gaining twenty-three points in the process).  That's worth
noticing. -- Ugly Walt
P.S.  C. Fire is crying out of the other side of his mouth today.

To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission.
