                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CALEAM, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  GOLDEN CANYON?  Who?  ULTRA-VIOLENT is the top team 
these days, buddies!  ULTRA-VIOLENT had cause to celebrate, after CRANIUM CRUSHER got 
20 points by beating TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE.  COROT TORO certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to KUNG-FU MASTER and losing 12 points in the 
process!  In CALEAM, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new 
Duelmaster, HERSHEL WILLIAMS.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in CALEAM would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  CALEAM, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Swinging Aardvark.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Death Rattle -- If that's a comment on the fact that I managed to burn the beans,
it's unnecessary.  I noticed.  It's hard not to notice burned beans, and impossible
to scour them out of the pan.  I may have to throw it away!  Or maybe... hmm.  A
blowtorch? -- Kettelman

Kettelman hoped to draw the Khalhums Dwarf, he says old Tompot's a prime trencherman.
Maybe so, but he doesn't know, you will forgive the word, beans about art. -- Corot
Toro

The Veteran Mercenary is close to a bottomless pit when it comes to hash and
tomatoes.  Well, I guess it takes all kinds, and I do like to see someone enjoy my
food. -- Short Order Joe

The Virginal Concubine is a damned picky eater. -- Spitizn

Disemboweler -- What nonsense.  Eat the good fresh bread, plenty of butter to go with
it, you know!, and be silent. -- Pascella

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Golden Canyon chefs

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct

     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
