                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RIZTAB brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ALCMAEON win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
ALCMAEON beat JAYLENE MOKHAR and JAYLENE MOKHAR lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster GORASH THE ORC Dark Arena 
Challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting 
bland, as ARCHYTAS stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  DREAMERS has cause to pause today, as 
ARCHYTAS was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, 
I'll wager.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the RIZTAB arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of RIZTAB.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Aristoclea -- I've got some new chocolates with just a smidgen of gold dust on the
top.  Come try 'em, I think you'll like them. -- Donnamira

Alcmaeon -- What was the deal with that?  You came out with a scroll, handed it to
me, and said I might already have won?  I'm not getting this--probably something that
got MY manager up in the middle of the night rather than anything YOUR manager was
thinking.  But I won the fight, so I'm not going to complain. -- Jaylene Mokhar

Ho ho!  Tio the Moneychanger heard about Donnamira's gold-dust chocolates, and HE
wanted some.  As if! -- Lorimera

Ten of Clubs -- Ow!  It felt like it, too. -- Ghost of Nonellia
P.S.  Nasty dude, aren't you?

Antiphon -- A good beginning for me, thank you. -- Jouella
P.S.  I'm going to be baking cherry tarts this afternoon, if you would care to drop
by for one.

Our congratulations to Archytas. -- Jorja and Sweet Magic
