                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SOLVEN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, MIDDLE WAY 15, since 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see DONDRIC win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly. 
Tsk, tsk, DONDRIC beat IO OLDEND and IO OLDEND lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as JEROME 
stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do 
you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
KELLUMBO'S KIDS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was HOT WHEELS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the SOLVEN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of SOLVEN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Anthon -- Does your team have a counsellor?  You might want to talk to such a person
about this apparently suicidal tendency you have.  Yes, okay, I'm not a killer and DK
knows it, but still, accidents do happen, and unless you've been stoking up on
tourney fights, you were taking a major gamble.  I'd hate to see a promising kid go
under through a simple miscalculation. -- Dolby Jossel

Dondric -- Of course, it *could* be something in the water at your guildhouse.  I
realize that our two teams know each other rather well by now, that nothing ventured
nothing gained, that I seem to have an input error strategy (but I like it!), etc.
Ah...is it that you have this strong desire to spend time with an older woman?  Hmm.
Rather intriguing possibilities there.... -- Io Oldend

Jerome -- Well, heck.  I was hoping for the love of my life, sweet golden-haired
Jackson, but I guess you'll do.  Ah, what am I saying?  You DID do.  So be it.  You
are also worthy of the title, and the fans love you.  They like action, and you do
provide that.  Of course, I am *splendidly* statuesque and have some of the most
stunning heroic poses down pat, but...fans.  Thank the gods we don't have to love
'em, just accept their accolades and iet it go at that, eh? -- Chucker Istta
P.S.  Jackson, no point in keeping your love for me secret.  Something tells me,
perhaps the fact that the bookies are taking bets on some, ah, significant dates we
might have, that people KNOW.

Visiting Orc?  (deleted, expunged, censored)  He can just go home. -- Chawlie Istta

Who would trust the so-called "Trustworthy Scribe"?  Any more than a sensible man
would buy a horse no questions asked from a used horse dealer known as Honest John.
Bah. -- Hotl Muschel
P.S.  I am not a dwarf.  This is the Commissions "little joke," which has gotten MUCH
too stale over the years.

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
