                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZORPUNT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see MERI TCHONES win a fight and gain 7 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, THE USEROUS 
MERCHANT beat LORENSO POOLE and LORENSO POOLE lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZORPUNT may be getting bland, as MANUEL 
PEREZ stays top dog in the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZORPUNT'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 ZORPUNT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ZORPUNT 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

Manuel Perez -- Do you feel these meetings between us are getting rather old?
Getting to be very much a formula?  Perhaps we should go for variation, maybe
discuss...I don't know, have you read any good books lately?  Found any great new
beers?  You must do something besides fight and train. -- Travis T Flete

Travis -- It'd help if YOU spent some time training. -- Jorja

Jorja -- Wasted effort until Manuel graduates.  He's got my number nine ways from
Tuesday. -- Travis

Mitchell Paige -- Ah, challenging Frank for the second slot, are you?  Well, good.
Find competition where you can, all that stuff. -- Miressea Poole
P.S.  I wish you could teach me more, but I suppose that isn't to be expected.

Kung-Fu Master.  Urg.  Remind me again why I want to study kung-fu?  Every time *I*
get in a fight, I plan to have a blade along. -- Morlin Poole

Morlin -- What good is planning if you find yourself in the middle of a bar fight in
a no-weapons bar? -- Miressea

Miressea -- Comments and criticism from my sister are what I do not need. -- Morlin

The Userous Merchant.  Ack.  I don't recall making any purchases recently that would
have required me to--  Oh, gods, the shield!  Damn.  But I really needed that new
shield.  Huh.  I bought it from Kernlho up Sartis, and then I fight him and lose?
Something suspicious here.  What are the odds there's some TRICK to the shield, and
he knows it? -- Lorenso Poole, beginning to entertain dark suspicions

A Persistent Beggar?  I find that something of an odd concept.  A smart beggar--there
must be some such, probably all guild officers--would know when NOT to persist.  Such
as, in the arena when losing. -- Meri Tchones

     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
