                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KALTOS this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, BALISONG fought TERTIUS and gained 
14 points and contributed to ZOMBIE SQUAD's 2-2-0.  SECUNDUS has lost to JUDAS PRIUS, 
falling 9 points, while helping make LONG SWORD CLUB a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and PRIMUS remains KALTOS' top warrior for 
another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that KALTOS has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KALTOS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KALTOS and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Our congratulations to Primus and Balisong. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

And we salute the tourney participants, whatever tourney it was they participated in.
A special cheer for Scootie Puff Jr, that "cute little thing," for being champion in
the Freshmen, and Balisong for coming darned close in the Champions. -- Jorja and the
Middle Way again

Primus -- What "devastated" me was that you, at six foot two, are willing to ALLOW
the Commission to call you a dwarf.  Don't you care about your image? -- Gidget Imer

Quartus -- Ha!  Take that, you killer! -- Just Losin, doing some winning for a change

Butler -- A golem butler?  Okay.  But you can't get away with anything with ME. --
Melandar Orbin
P.S.  At least, not today.

Piers -- How odd, you don't LOOK like a zombie.  I guess that's part of your "bag of
tricks," so to speak, isn't it?  Drat. -- Riella True

Hey, Jorja doesn't pay me enough that I'm going to give some to a beggar! -- Nolber

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, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, 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.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
