     Ultorino looked both ways along the alley, slipped out the door, and pulled it
shut behind him, all in a single smooth move.  "Dammit, Blotto, what are you DOING
here?" he hissed.
     "Admiring your proficiency," his big teammate answered.  "It isn't everyone who
can hiss a sentence that hasn't a single frictive in it."  The big Lord Protector, in
a move as smooth as Ultorino's exit, caught the dagger aimed at his belly, twisted
the wrist involved, and snorted laughter.  "If you're going to adventure, you'd
better learn not to telegraph your moves," he said.
     "Adventure?"  He decided that discretion was the better part of being dragged
down the alley, dark of night or not, and got his feet under himself to match paces
with the taller gladiator.  "What adventure?  I tried that, and it was a total wash.
Where are we going?"
     "Your timing was off," Blotto said.  "We're going to Bent Lane."

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for DENTINE, who flew up 22 points in the 
rankings after mashing VENTRIIE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was VENTRIIE, who dropped 6 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with DENTINE.  In front of all the crowds, 
INCISOR took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid FANGS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does ZUKAL really have that many liars?  
Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch DARK WARDS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats 
seem to be fairly deft at running from FANGS.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ZUKAL giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  
Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Bluette and Dulgin -- They were quite enjoyable three minute dances.  Quite
enjoyable. -- Toreador and Gangrel

Maybe Brujah will be back this time? -- A Dark Wards Spy

Jorja -- A "3-7-21-3-12-16-8" would make a great "style-switch potion" warrior.  We
might recommend a 3-7-21-7-17-18-11 ST.  Glad it is yours! -- The Dark Wards clan

Dd -- Listen, I gave you the win, right?  So you owe me.  What do you brew?  If it's
something good, and you give me some, we're even. -- Blu Jon

Toreador -- Oog, remind me not to get involved in bullfighting! -- Bluette

Newlin -- Not so new, you see. -- Bleu Bonet

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
