                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
CALEAM.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SOLDIER 3, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing KOMODO DRAGON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KOMODO DRAGON was defeated by SOLDIER 3 and 
drops 11 points.  In front of all the crowds, GOLDERIE took the Duelmaster's crown 
for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, 
just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Arthur Beyer -- Euwh, not today.  WAY too much party last night.  You'd think I'd
know better by now than to put a banana-coconut milk-custard pie on top of venison
marinated in wine and chiles....  Euwh.... -- Golderie
P.S.  And I probably shouldn't have had beer at bedtime, either.

Cucumbers in Virgin Oil?  I don't think so!  Where's the wine vinegar?  The cider
vinegar?  The POTATO vinegar?  Hmm, I don't think anything can improve a cucumber.
They should be seen, perhaps, and not tasted.  Or picked while young and pickled.
I'll take a peck of those. -- Pike, pleased by a peck of pickled peppers

Guardian Naga -- How very odd.  Sort of like a lime sorbet with chunks of...is that
nougat?  Hmm.  I can't say I care for it personally, but if I dress up the name and
description on the menu, arrange for a suitable article on rarity and exotic elegance
of same to appear in this month's Royal Gastronome Magazine, somebody will be bound
to order it and pretend they like it.  I think they call this "making a statement
with food."  Or something. -- Clemmie

As a taster, the Khalhums Dwarf is supreme, a totally unbiased palate, but he's got
to be kept out of the kitchen unless he'll wear a hairnet on his hair AND his beard.
-- Loris Key

Scarlet Skink -- I can't help thinking of a skink as a SMALL lizard, the kind one
could roast with a whole gooseberry in its mouth.  You're a little big for that.
Hmm.  An Anjou pear?  A pair of pairs?  A Granny Smith apple?  Golden Delicious?  How
do you feel about avocados? -- Moldraun

Toreo Filis of Ti, Noble Assassin -- Put a sock in it.  Life is hard all over, but
adults put up with it. -- Clemmie

Enrito of Arkers, Master of Kung-Fu -- There is everything wrong with tofu.  If I
want a "neutral base," I'll use library paste. -- Golderie

Komodo Dragon -- Damn. -- Ghost of a too-Polite Beggar

Copperhead -- It's pretty enough, but it doesn't last.  Copperpoint is the kind of
thing an Embezzling--  Wait a minute.  Let me see that again. -- Marngei of Rithakar

Speckled Gecko -- I'd heard about toads having, ah, hallucinogenic sweat.  I didn't
know it worked for geckos, too.  Cool. -- a very Happy Peasant

Loris Key -- I just wanted a little taste!  You didn't have to cut my hand off! --
Tompot Steelclaw

Pike -- Talk about shriveled and shrunken pickles! -- Saralee, Chaste Female
Companion
