                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TRANSEL!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, GREAT OAK fought NORMAL NAN and gained 7 points and 
contributed to MY LITTLE TRIBE's 3-0-0.  Defending his title for another turn, 
WHISPER WALK kept PSYCHO SQUAD's warrior, CONCUSSION, from claiming the throne.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Sultan's Tent?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  THE VOLS has cause to stand tall, as they 
were TRANSEL's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding THE VOLS more than any other team we find MY LITTLE TRIBE.  TRANSEL, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was PSYCHO SQUAD's warrior NORMAL NAN.  More fighters challenged her than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that TRANSEL has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TRANSEL and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

bloodfeud. -- 071406AD and TMM

Whisper Walk -- Like I should care?  I'm leaving, and apparently I have no choice in
that.  If I DID have a choice, I'd stay and annoy people.  You, for one. -- Bimbette

Mourning Dew -- Your presence, ma'am, was enough to bring me nearly to consciousness.
Lovely little thing, aren't you? -- Concussion

-- Normal Nan

Whisper Walk -- How can I have a good time on the Isle when everybody there is OUT TO
GET ME?  They are, you know.  They think I don't notice, but I can tell.  The way the
stop talking as I come near, and never look straight at me, and nobody ever answers
any reasonable questions I might ask.  I'd characterize the lot of them, but I'm told
that the word in question wouldn't get past the editor, who is ALSO out to get me. --
Hattie

Suicide Solution -- Only as applied to other people.  *I* don't have that kind of
problem.  After all, I'm tne NORMAL one here. -- Normal Nan

Kytie Ren, Understeward for Transel arena -- Are you going to make that SO GENEROUS
offer to all the other graduating gladiators? -- Bimbette
