     Well fought, Alexander, and may we never meet on the sands again.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ALJAFIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with MAXIMUS?  He actually 
beat MIDDLE WAY's VURZHAL UR, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at HEROESANDFOUNDONES.  KHALUM'S MIDGET lost 13  points to VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KHALUM'S MIDGET will provide more 
easy wins...  MARSHALL was reminded on the sands why TABETA UNIS is Duelmaster.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, MIDDLE WAY!  
In my day, no team with a 247-408-5 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
HEROESANDFOUNDONES?   
     Warriors of ALJAFIR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ALJAFIR is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Ronald Reagan -- Well, I appear to have had my teaching hat on today.  And why not,
eh? -- Vurzhal Ur

     Is it a warm hat? -- Ed.

Maximus -- I wish you didn't feel you had to keep living up to your name.  And that
this arena had a larger population, so that I could sink into a well-deserved
obscurity. -- Obida Paniri

Cult Members?  Pooh. -- Straight Line

And the same to the North Fork Rabble. -- Erbin Frorlin
P.S.  How'd they get here, anyway?

Ed. -- You don't know the half of it!  She's a basher, you know. -- Erbin Frorlin

     Which would be entirely appropriate in the face of an excess of "cute". -- Ed.

Tabeta Unis -- Congratulations on your graduation. -- HEROESANDFOUNDONES

Zagrehj, Assistant to the Arenamaster -- I expect more than an "efficiency apartment"
on the Isle in light of my 19-6-2 record.  Pretty good for a warrior with a 13 wit.
I am sure that Kjarran will understand. -- Lord Protector Alexander the Great

Lady Protector Tabeta Unis -- You are precious near to being an offense against the
Karnhorn Way.  Yours is not a life style and career proper to a true lady, but then
you're not of the Blood.  Even if we had lands for gladiators, we would not offer you
any.  Find a husband, settle down, raise children. -- Zagrejh, assistant to the
Arenamaster
P.S.  And no, we will not offer you a husband, you hussy!
