                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
NIANIA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If this keeps up, SERPENTS HOLD, 
you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in the rankings?  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see CUTPURSE win a fight and gain 12 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CUTPURSE beat PIKESTAVE and PIKESTAVE lost 8 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, POLISH 
CAVALRY has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as ELINTERRI takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Jim's Tap Room, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From NIANIA's trash dumps?  
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of NIANIA.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

How depressingly typical!  Two losses to managed (or nominally managed) gladiators,
and three wins over standbys.  And NOBODY ELSE on the sands at all.  Well, except for
the arenamaster and the stewards and the orderlies and the maintenance crew and the
like. -- Kestraline for the Golden Fish
