                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KYR'TERR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, BAD COMBINATIONS, since 
NIGHTHAWKS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see JUMPIN' JIMMINY win a fight and gain 16 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG-FU MASTER beat BALLROOM DENTISTRY and BALLROOM DENTISTRY 
lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  KESTEREL challenged KYR'TERR's Duelmaster 
for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, KYR'TERR may be 
getting bland, as TORNADO GOLFING stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  NIGHTHAWKS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it 
looks like BAD COMBINATIONS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, KESTEREL was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Whoa!  I'll even buy OJ ON LAPTOP a drink 
tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on its good 
side!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with 
you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in KYR'TERR to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, 
you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
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.
