                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SOLVEN will ever be the same.  And let's see, PEWTER fought GARBIN MOORIS and 
gained 13 points and contributed to DROP THE LEASH's 2-1-0.  GARBIN MOORIS has lost 
to PEWTER, falling 10 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 15 a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to 
hers absence and inability to defend the throne, JACKSON has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on IO OLDEND this turn as she ascended to the throne 
of Duelmaster.  SOLVEN has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern 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.  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that IO OLDEND from MIDDLE WAY 15 was SOLVEN's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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 SOLVEN has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SOLVEN and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in SOLVEN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Anthon -- Listen, bub, you really dropped the ball on this.  I was demonstrating some
of my BEST skills, and you WEREN'T PAYING ATTENTION.  Because if you HAD been paying
attention, you would have learned more.  No two ways about that. -- Io Oldend
P.S.  Odd, I would have expected you to drop some of that inflated rating with your
loss.  Oh, well, the ways of the Commission are inscrutable, and none of us can ever
hope to unscrew the inscrutable.
P.P.S.  Although a really big pipe wrench might help.

Jackson -- Sweetheart!  I love the way you knock me off my feet and, as they say,
"jump my bones."  But not in the ARENA, please!  Some things are better done in
privacy.  Come around tonight and I'll show you some...some more, I mean. -- Chucker

Jerome -- Whoa!  Looks like you've got a serious problem with your weapon.  To lack
the Deftness for that, well, it looks like you are TOTALLY screwed.  How did you
manage your record? -- Dolby Jossel

Lipstick -- Wow, that was AMAZING.  I wouldn't mind doing that again, say in the
alley behind the arena tonight?  But, ah, I'll have to take my shirt off.  Io--she
does all our laundry, and complains about it WAY too much since it IS properly a
woman's job--she says if I get, you know, lipstick on my shirt, she won't wash it. --
Chawlie Istta

Polite Beggar, eh?  Not well named, but still a pleasant encounter.  As arena
encounters go. -- Garbin Mooris

Jerome -- Oh, gods, I COMPLETELY forgot about that special match.  I had it set up (I
think) so I had the right if-challenged weapon, but I didn't do a THING with my
regular weapon.  Do you want to try this again, with me paying more attention and
maybe even (deep breath) changing weapons for a regular match? -- Dolby the
Remorseful Jossel

15 January 2008
                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....
