                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZORPUNT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, KRILL CAVALRY, since TRIBE 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see SERGEANT 6 win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, SERGEANT 6 beat PEARL STONE and PEARL STONE lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as CHILI CON CARNAGE takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Dripping 
Blade, 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.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZORPUNT to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  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

Time to cook up some Sergeant Peppers. -- Shewish Buffet

Pogo Polen here again, wearing "panty hose" under my armor--I'm sure you've noticed
how readily armor distributes COLD at this season?  There are places I do NOT want
frostbitten.  Another typical turn for us, three-two.  Two wins and one loss against
standbys, one each win and loss against managed gladiators.  To those who showed up
to fight, win or lose, a salute. -- Pogo Polen

                                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!"
