                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RIZTAB!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, WHERE fought HEZASH THE MOUTH and gained 18 points and 
contributed to GUESSING GAME's 4-1-0.  MIRIAMINA has lost to CRITIAS, falling 8 
points, while helping make SWEET MAGIC a 1-4-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was 
between SPYMASTER TORRIC and our Duelmaster HULL SCRUBBER, making a Dark Arena 
Challenge.  Defending his title for another turn, HULL SCRUBBER kept DARK ARENA's 
warrior, SPYMASTER TORRIC, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  HULL SCRUBBER was 
sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  You gotta 
do what you gotta do.  SEA DOGS has sent TACKLE BOX to the Dark Arena.  The deed is 
done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell 
has TACKLE BOX been sent to the Dark Arena by SEA DOGS?  And why with a 22-10-3 
record??  The grave that CARDS had dug for TEN OF CLUBS may yet be filled with the 
body of DEMRON THE DARK.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  TEN OF CLUBS 
lives still!  Is it really true that RIZTAB has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, RIZTAB, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in RIZTAB 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
