                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ALJAFIR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, FENSTER GOLLY fought VETERAN MERCENARY and gained 16 points 
and contributed to MIDDLE WAY's 4-1-1.  And all eyes were on FENSTER GOLLY this turn 
as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ALJAFIR has a new victor!  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Vile 
Vizier?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, ALJAFIR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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

Nobody active higher than the Challenger Adepts?  That's disgraceful! -- Fenster and
Morris, the highest-ranked (and tied) active warriors here

Dawn -- I DEEPLY RESENT the fact that MERELY because this was your last fight, my
death gets NO MENTION AT ALL in the newsletter.  Maybe it isn't a huge deal in the
larger life of Aljafir, but it mattered to ME. -- annoyed ghost of Caleb Door
P.S.  Yeah, okay, not your fault, I know that.  But who else is listening?

I really don't like dwarves.  Especially dwarves from Khalhums.  Maybe some others
would be better? -- Fenster Golly

Winfield -- I just couldn't bring myself to get CLOSE to a zombie, you know?  What if
it's catching? -- Debra Elsith

Ah, the Userous Merchant, gotta love him. -- Morris Ormran

Filet o' Floyd -- I don't think you were filleted properly.  You've got lots of bones
left. -- Tobit Oppat
