                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail XOCHITHLAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, IRON CHEF fought RIRORNI WOMAN and gained 16 points and 
contributed to ANYWAYUSLICEIT's 5-0-1.  MAWRIE RAWSH has lost to OLD GLORY, falling 9 
points, while helping make BIG LAKE LUMBER a 0-4-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, POOPS THROUGH DIAPER kept BOOK OF THOMAS' warrior, BOTTLE ROCKET, from 
claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Swinging Aardvark uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the DUCKS UNLIMITED stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on XOCHITHLAN, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided DUCKS UNLIMITED stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BASH BROS BABY.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was ANYWAYUSLICEIT's warrior 
PROPHESLICE.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  KIMBO SLICE must have surprised ANYWAYUSLICEIT this turn, after they sent 
him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold him!  A brave warrior does 
not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in XOCHITHLAN and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe

                     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!"
