                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KOLACT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  It was 
a tough week for WEIRD STUDENTS, to drop 5 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a 
solid 2-2-0 outing, UNDERTHING has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for JORMAUNGARDR, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing TRUMP 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was ATONEMENT, who dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with CONVICTED ASSASSIN.  It's a proud day for the TERRAPIN STATION stable, as their 
warrior, THE QUESTION, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that NORSE GIANTS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of NORSE GIANTS' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause THE MENTORS beats feet every time NORSE GIANTS smiles at them.  Try 
farming, eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Proving again that KOLACT is not rated G, JORMAUNGARDR of 
the NORSE GIANTS slew the warrior TRUMP in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a 
bloodfeud.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena 
with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in KOLACT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

     The crowd was surprisingly orderly, but it was still a crowd, and the Commission 
clerk, Algernon, looked at it uneasily.  Whenever this many people came together to 
petition for something, it meant trouble.  For him, anyway.  Records to be altered.  
Altering records was Bad.  It made Extra Work.
     His assistant clerk leaned close and whispered, "If it weren't for gladiators, we 
wouldn't have jobs.  Smile at them and ask what they want."
     Algernon closed his eyes briefly.  Looking at this crowd made him dizzy.  They 
were all wearing black and white stripes.  Like a herd of zebras, except that zebras 
didn't carry swords.  Then he took a deep breath and managed a smile.  "What... ah, 
what can I do for you?"
     "We want new names," the first gladiator said.  There was a number on the front 
of his shirt:  0381.  He thumped the number with his thumb.  "This here isn't a 
name--"
     "We want REAL names!"  That voice came from farther back in the crowd.
     "Yeah!  We've paid our dues," another shouted, "and we've EARNED real names!"
     One from the very back yelled, "I want to be called Tom."
     All the others turned to look at him.
     Algernon couldn't see him, but apparently those looks were accusing.  Well, he 
could understand that, "Tom" was such a... common name.
     "My mom called me Tom," the voice in the back protested.  "It's a good name."
     "It isn't the name you put on the petition," 0381 said.  "We talked about this.  
We got our manager's agreement.  You get the name on the petition."
     "But--!"
     Algernon didn't really want to keep staring at all these stripes while they 
argued.  He picked up the petition.  "These names are the ones you want?"
     0381 turned back.  "Yes."
     "It's a lot of trouble, and when other people see that YOU are getting name 
changes, THEY are going to want them--"  Seeing the gladiators beginning to frown... 
and finger their weapons, he went on quickly, "So I figure we might as well make it a 
complete deal.  A Name-Change-O-Rama.  Everyone who wants a name change can petition 
for it.  Get it all over with at once."  He glanced at the petition, shuddered 
slightly, and passed it to his clerk.  "We'll announce it, proclaim it, even, and you 
will get the names on this petition.  And others will get the names THEY think they 
should have had, too."  He paused.  "And I think I'll get a new name, I'm tired of 
being an Algernon...."
