     Stonedog rolled up the arena newsletter and fed it into the fire that burned in
the center of the longhouse.  "Top Team again," he said.  He looked at his teammate
Anvil.  "Got any bright ideas today?"
     The big man batted at smoke drifting upward, mostly but not entirely toward the
hole in the roof.  "A door," he said.  "And a chimney.  You ever wonder what it might
be like to sit around a fire, inside out of the rain, and not breathe smoke?"
     "A door and a chimney are fine, but why don't we just get JOBS and BUY them?"
Rainbird asked.
     Anvil snorted.  "Who'd hire a bunch of Rirorni gladiators who always smell like
smoke?"
     "Any place looking for cheap labor," Biting Fly answered.  "I bet we could get
jobs as street sweeprs or something."
     "I was offered work on a potato farm," Blackhorn said.  "I refused, but--"  He
shrugged.  "Farming, not my thing."
     Everyone contemplated that for several minutes.
     Stonedog swirled the last of the soup in his bowl and drank it down.  "You ever
wonder about farming?  Food that doesn't have to be chased down, or kept from doing
damn silly things like stampeding in a storm?"
     "Can't do it on horseback," Anvil protested.
     Rainbird raised her eyebrows.  "We DO have legs of our own," she pointed out.
"There are things that even the Rirorni don't insist on doing on horseback, too, so
that proves we CAN--"
     "If we have to, yes," Blackhorn said.  "But there must be other options.  How
about... hmm.  Maybe we could get jobs as couriers."
     "Worth a try," Stonedog agreed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in DULLENS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for POLYJUICE TWINS?  
HARRY POTTER AND THE's proud of her after beating BLACKHORN and getting 23 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  BLACKHORN's match with POLYJUICE TWINS cost him a loss 
of 21 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome STONEDOG.  Aren't CARDOW HUNTERS proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  DULLENS is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Hmm.  We're popular, we're favorites, but we aren't recognized on the streets?
Sounds like a contradiction in terms. -- Biting Fly and Stonedog
P.S.  Yeahyeahyeah, we know.  Fight harder.
P.P.S.  Ah, and we see that Methodsofrationality is/are definitely UN-popular this
week.  No surprise there!  We've often felt that.

Sam Adams -- It seems unreasonable that I should be "mismatched" with you.  I can
hold my own with a keg, you know. -- Biting Fly

Polyjuice Twins -- Beer would be more exciting.  You... hmm, carrots, turnips, a
couple of beets, a little fresh mustard greens.  Yuck.  Doubtless monstrously
healthy, but who wants monstrously healthy? -- Blackhorn

Magical Shortcut -- You aren't fooling me with that again.  No shortcuts, magical or
otherwise.  Shortcuts are all short roads to disaster. -- Stonedog

Balance of Earth -- Many possibilities in that name, but all of them can be settled
by a good soaking rain. -- Rainbird

It amuses us to see that the Pimped Out Broom fought the Teddy Bear of Death.  They
deserve each other. -- the Cardow Hunters

Methodsofrationality -- Highly over-rated. -- Anvil
P.S.  And you need a loss.  You were getting above yourself.  Glad to oblige.

All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
