                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ALJAFIR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If this keeps up, NEW BLADES, you'll 
have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 in the rankings?  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see COUNTESS KRAK win a fight and gain 27 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, COUNTESS KRAK beat BUNDY and BUNDY lost 23 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ALJAFIR may be getting 
bland, as PING stays top dog in the city.  The Vile Vizier, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ALJAFIR's trash dumps? 
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ALJAFIR's 
morgue.  More variety.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone else.  
Anyway, this turn it came.  SLICE's 4-8-1 has earned him the Dark Arena.  Gee, 
G.O.L.F., ain't it past due for sending 1WOOD Dark Arena?  What took ol' '8-5-1' so 
long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through 
use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ALJAFIR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Jorja -- Please don't leave. =)  I had a total of 4 fights last turn: 1 dark arena,
two extras, only 1 "real" opponent.  So I *very much* appreciate having the extra
opposition in the arena.  If it's not too much trouble and you wouldn't mind...I
would love to see you stick around.  I'd rather match up against any one of your guys
over a Convicted Thief any day!  And please don't interpret my silence as a lack of
interest.  I have some very strong warriors in this arena, and I believe I will be
active here in Aljafir for at least a few months to come. -- Chuck, mgr. of Fish
Thangs

Padre -- I've been in a couple of turf wars when some team needed another manager and
was really, really desperate.  Not my cup of hot chocolate.  I've never done any of
the tournaments, although simply ATTENDING the Face to Face in Tempe was fun, when I
could get there.  I enjoyed meeting the people.  But yeah, for me, basic is the
primary focus, too.  I HAVE gladiators in all the advanced arenas, but right now I'm
only running them in 105, 106, and 107, to provide a few extra bodies on the sands

(no way I'd run EVERYBODY), and one for fun--in 107.  I hope you've done well in the
Halloween tourney. -- Jorja
P.S.  And I, or my gladiators, stand ready to return to the sands if needed.

                                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!"
