                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUWAYZA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see THE HANGOVER win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
VETERAN MERCENARY beat BUZZ GRIMHULT and BUZZ GRIMHULT lost 14 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting 
bland, as CLICQUOT CHAMPAGNE stays top dog in the city.  The Drunken Ox, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZUWAYZA's trash 
dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ZUWAYZA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  BATTLEAXE STAMPEDE the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like SMASH 
SISTERS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask 
me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUWAYZA's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

                     PAYMENTS BY CHECK AND MONEY ORDER -- CHANGE

Please note that because of new bank regulations, we can no longer accept any check or 
money order drawn off a non-US bank, even if it is in US Funds.  We were just informed 
by our bank that the fee to process these checks is $40, which is crazy high!

Many apologies to our foreign players, but you will need to either get a check from a 
US bank (Chase, Citigroup, etc.) or pay via credit card.  

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
