                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of CALEAM!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, SERPENTS HOLD.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with AXIUM?  He 
actually beat GOLDEN CANYON's TRUFFLES, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at STYGIAN BOATMEN while they watched AXIUM clobber TRUFFLES. 
She lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure 
CALEAM is excited about IMAGINATION, the new Duelmaster from VCU COLLEGE RADIO.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was IT'S ALL RELATIVE.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
HILLTOP GURUS ain't reelin'!  IT'S ALL RELATIVE's mad!  What do people see in FILLER? 
Its 4-3-1?  SERPENTS HOLD ain't talkin', but it's got 56 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Well, Jorja says we have to be courteous, so we congratulate the silent Shiv on his
graduation. -- the Golden Canyon crew

Sergeant 1 -- That comment about turning me into a "rabbit-fur helmet liner" was
unnecessary. -- Sutter's Hare (not a rabbit)

Shiv -- The win, six skills, two ratings, the title, and graduation?  Greedy, aren't
you? -- Appelonia

Sergeant 8 -- That kind of thing makes me extra sour. -- Sourdough Sam

Guru Emeritus -- Take that, you nasty bird!  Ha! -- Truffles

Noah -- Oh, well, nowhere to go but up, right?  If it had been poker instead of
swords, we might have seen a different outcome. -- Lottie Deno

                                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!"
