                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for BIRGITTE, who pummelled ISOBEL KLINE, to pocket 24 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 9 points to OSWALD QUORN.  (Discrete enough, RICKY HENDERSON?) A certain 
someone saw NOSEY ROSIE at The Victory Tavern with the shakes, and now she fails to 
show up to defend hers throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In KALTOS, nothing is 
permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, ISOBEL KLINE.  So 
who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Admittedly 
Death waits for no one, but me thinks SLOP BUCKET of DUNGEON CELL (4-0-0) is being 
sent off a little prematurely.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for 
thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
