                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZORPUNT this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, MITCHELL PAIGE fought KHALHUMS 
DWARF and gained 13 points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR A3's 3-1-1.  INARI has 
lost to MORLIN POOLE, falling 2 points, while helping make THE ABYSMALS a 2-3-0 turn. 
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and MANUEL PEREZ remains 
ZORPUNT's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they 
win.  Maybe?   
     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 MORLIN POOLE from KRILL CAVALRY was ZORPUNT'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.  Kudos go out to MORLIN POOLE this 
turn, for revenging KRILL CAVALRY's bloodfeud against THE ABYSMALS' warrior INARI.  
Well done.  Is it really true that ZORPUNT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ZORPUNT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZORPUNT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Raven Tarot -- You obviously have a little bit of wit about you also, yes on both
counts.  Sorry I won't be around for the 3 other tries your team has on the bloodfeud
but I really want to run in the tourney this spring and need to work out a little
more out at the ranch to get ready.  Not to sure if you wanted to try me again
anyway, but sorry just the same. -- Lisa Ann

Inari & Bekki -- Brute, tomcat, I've never been called such harsh things, now donkey,
things like that I can take.  Must have caught the both of you in the wrong time of
the month.  As far as biting goes, all you'll do is break a tooth. -- Wendell

Lorenso -- How can you call me a wench, I'm only 2-1/2 years old and my grandpa says
I'm as cute as a bug's ear, but I am a mean little (you get the point).  Everybody
always wants to fight me, I seem to be popular in this arena, just needed a little
break.  Sorry if I hurt your feelings. -- Baby Karlie

Uluru & Ky-Lin -- Easy now, you won't always fight stand-ins, personally, I don't
like death, it's usually really messy and it's hard to get out all the stains. --

All -- I have unfinished business in other arenas that needs to be tended to but I
enjoy this arena and have plans to possibly settle down here in the near future.  You
seem to be a good group of managers that are having a good time here, look forward to
getting back regular. -- Mingaloids

Khalums Dwarf -- I will give you credit, for as short as you are you are indeed one
of the toughest standbys out there.  My manager has had a couple of his warriors
beaten by you and you are no easy match, but I did beat you in the end.  What a great
fight, one of the best my manager said he has ever seen.  As far as liking tall
women, forget it chump, when we stand toe to toe I know what you're staring at ya
creep.  Next time, no mercy! -- Ash Leela

Uluru -- That was abysmal, do it some more.  After all, you missed a great chance to
learn some skills from me, so... come on, lose again.  I'll teach you some of my
tricks, I've got one I do with two raw eggs, a rabbit, and a fedora that's a
guaranteed wow. -- Lorenso Poole

Manuel Perez -- Gods, man, GRADUATE, why don't you?  That rank in a basic arena is
ridiculous.  Plus, it makes all the rest of us look bad.  We don't need help on that.
-- Travis T Flete

Mitchell Paige -- I got a lot of mean-spirited pleasure out of that.  I do TRY not to
be mean-spirited, but some days it's just too much for me. -- Miressea Poole

Frank Peregory -- Hmm, if that is a sample of how my gods protect me, maybe I should
look into the question of new gods.  Either that, or I should get a new weapons
trainer. -- Morlin Poole
P.S.  Or both.

Inari -- Drat.  That does NOT make my day, and little though you realize it now, it
doesn't make yours, either.  Because it means that my little brother, Baalbekker, has
his chance to enter the arena system, and he's nasty.  Not very dangerous in a
straight-up fight, maybe, but nasty. -- Ghost of Bekki Tchones

Ky-Lin -- (hastily)  No, no, I LIKE tall women.  I just couldn't see carrying you
away to a pink-tinted future on my saddlebow without flattening the horse.  Our
horses are not large. -- Lorenso Poole

Cool down, you Abysmals.  Do you think standbys grow on trees? -- Arenamaster Kai

and such.  Please send stuff as plain text rather than as HTML or formatted text.
HAL, being the simple golem it is, doesn't know what to do with anything other than
plain text.  Note, this also means it doesn't know what to do with "smart" or "curly"

everyone's favourite ellipsis (..., aka three dots). -- A public self-service
announcement from your Ed.

                                 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....
