                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in WILLAF a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as GOLDEN GLADIATORS is pushed out of top team by BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, 
who came from 3rd with a 1-2-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, 
for there are sorrows to drown for GOLDEN GLADIATORS, whose 1-3-0 this turn dropped 
them by 4 into 5th.  The AIMER'S INC guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's 
see, GOLDFINCH fought BLACK INDEKKER and gained 24 points and contributed to GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS' 1-3-0.  HAZEL NUTTE has lost to ABEL, falling 9 points, while helping 
make PUNNY AMINALS a 0-5-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, SLIDE TO HELL has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, 
EVEBRINGER now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of WILLAF.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the PANDORA'S 
CARDS stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on WILLAF, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided PANDORA'S CARDS stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was PUNNY AMINALS' warrior SOFA'YAM.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  Building dreams on hope, ASHTON challenged up 26 points 
this turn to take on MOONSINGER from SHADOWMONGERS stable.  But when the dust 
settled, ASHTON had lost to MOONSINGER, and AIMER'S INC left ASHTON doing chores when 
they went to the tavern.  Better luck next time.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that WILLAF 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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Well, a salute to Slide To Hell.  I can and will salute a Duelmaster, no matter his
history and status. A DM is a DM, and some are very fine sandbaggers. -- Midas (Who
recognizes gold when he sees it!)

Little Red Bike -- You know what they say... (It's just like riding a bike.)  And
although I tweet and flit around, I do remember how to ride a bike.  (giggling and
tweeting--the REAL tweeting) -- Goldfinch

5th & Wabasha -- Well, it was fun even though you took more than I wanted to give. --
Golden Girl

Slide To Hell -- You are my better and a more deserving Duelmaster.  I salute you. --
Golden Globe (retired)

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Gold. -- Midas

Well Don -- Horrible learning?  Could be.  I'm no great brain.  And I don't THINK
recognition as such plays any part in learning, except as it indicates the experience
and expertise of the person having said recognition. -- Hori Bull, strong back, weak
mind

Because we are, what a surprise, running late here, we'll just say:  three-two isn't
bad for us, even if two of the wins were over standbys.  To those managed gladiators
we fought, Good fight. -- we who fought you

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
