     Red Hammer threw down the arena newsletter.  "Who'd have thought a mere 3-2
would have made us Top Team?  Why couldn't more of you have lost?"
     "We don't step out on the sands looking for a loss!" Cusster snapped.  "I, for
one, plan to celebrate my win and our Top Team standing at one of the clubs:  dinner,
music, dancing."
     "I hear they have a new floor show at the Masque," Germaine said, eyes lighting.
     Cusster snorted.  "They always do--or at least a floor show in new masks and
costumes.  No.  I am NOT going to put on fancy dress to enjoy my night out."  He
paused, visibly thinking.  "The High Place, that's what I want tonight."  His eyes
slid sideways toward Germaine.  There were times when the orc intimidated him, but
there was also no denying that she made a pleasing armful to cuddle during a slow
dance.  And later.  "Would you care to join me?"
     Her eyes narrowed.  "No funny business this time!"
     He managed an innocent look.  "Of course not!  Wouldn't dream of it.  In an
hour?"
     "I'll be ready."

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JHELUM brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SLED RUNNER win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
MAT'ARI beat WHEEL OF TIME and WHEEL OF TIME lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JHELUM may be getting bland, as IRONSIDE 
stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JHELUM's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  JULIAN was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JHELUM'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
