     Kolter Neethe looked at the mob of people on the lawn, trampling the snow into
dirty slush as they set up for the party.  At the caterers staggering past with boxes
and baskets and bales--  Bales of what?  He didn't think he wanted to know.  How had
he fallen into this horrible role?
     His teammate Tol Voram came to stand beside him.  "Amazing how much work it
takes to launch a party, isn't it?"
     Kolter groaned and clutched his head theatrically.  "It's unbelievable."
     "And the timing's going to be tricky, too," Tol went on.  With the cheer of
someone who was NOT a werewolf, he added, "Full moon coming soon."
     "By the time this all comes together, the moon will have passed the full and be
headed for new again," Gilgamesh said.  "But I still think we should have beer."

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROBIN STORZ, who 
flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing GILGAMESH IDON like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was GILGAMESH IDON, 
who dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with ROBIN STORZ. 
Drawing on all of hers experience as a 9-8-0 warrior, SUE CHURZ went for the 
Duelmastership against THE LEAD PIPE this week.  It's a proud day for the FUNKY FOLK 
stable, as their warrior, SUE CHURZ, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the LYRATILAN arena.  Here's 
a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad ERRATA?  Big bad ERRATA.  Big bad 
ERRATA.  LYRATILAN's afraid of the big bad ERRATA.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch FUNKY FOLK's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from ERRATA.  And who is this THE COOK you ask, with 36 points 
and a 10-6-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in LYRATILAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

The Lead Pipe -- I feel like I've been hit over the head with a sock full of sand.
Ugh. -- Urbin Yates

The Khalhums Dwarf, that would be Koraddur the Black, did his best to knock me out of
one of the spots on the front page, but it just wasn't enough.  In revenge, I'm going
to invite him to my party.  I don't think dwarves are thrilled by parties with no
beer, but that's the way it goes. -- Kolter Neethe

Yeah, well, I'm not inviting the Veteran Mercenary to any party. -- Tol Voram

Tol -- That's because you're a Fratsfan and naturally snooty. -- Kolter

Mrs. Peacock -- Madam, would you honor me by your company at the party? -- Isek Krol

The Hallway... long, long, closed doors all the way, where does it go.... --
Gilgamesh Idon, staggering into depression
