                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CALEAM games.  Former top team GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS was 
unseated this week as FIST moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-1 record for the round.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ONE TOUCH put 
down 54 DRAWERS, causing him to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  This 
time out GOLDMINE made his bid for the throne as he challenged ED in an all out 
contest of skill for possession of the title!  This time victory fell to the grasp of 
the usurper.  All hail GOLDMINE, Duelmaster of CALEAM!  Informants "close" to the 
city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his 
armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in CALEAM these days is GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS.  At least, most blades in 
town are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild 
it was that spent the better part of last week avoiding GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS.  Indeed it 
was MONKEE LEAVINGS.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below. 
GOLDMINE take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in CALEAM.  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that DIRT DEVIL posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized IMA PASS.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand DIRT DEVIL was overcame by IMA PASS.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  DA1 has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of his recent 
bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  
She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  
Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

                     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!"
