                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of MORYA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Say what you will about 
blind luck and dirty fighting, but ZODIAC will tell you 79-93-2 is nothing to laugh 
at...  ZODIAC had cause to celebrate, after VENUS got 16 points by beating MARY MEI.  
PLUTO certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to MONGO CRUSH and 
losing 6 points in the process!  Can you believe it?  FREDDY FENDER apparently has 
better things to do as MORYA's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a 
greater victory?  MERCURY has taken his place as the top, as MORYA's new Duelmaster.  
Word has it one team in MORYA is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent 
to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE WOLF PACK, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of THE WOLF PACK found their efforts at combat frustrated as EXPENSE ACCOUNT 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, 
MONGO CRUSH could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in MORYA would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid MORYA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Freddy Fender, Duelmaster!  We salute you.  A REAL warrior is on top of Morya.  Hubba
hubba. -- Finance Manager and The expense Accounts

I found some grant moneys.  We are back! -- Finance manager

Koroshiya Ichi -- Thanks for the sentiments.  Let's slay that elephant. -- Mercury

Lucky Looie -- The lucky stars must have been supporting me. -- Venus

Mary Mei -- Somehow, our match, you ran us to a win for you. -- Uranus

Psycho Dad -- You seemed a bit psychotic, swinging that BS.  But I'll take the big W
and five skills!! -- Pluto

Storm Warning -- Curse?!  Maybe, Kharma!?  About ten turns ago, you predicted more
snow. -- Uranus

Tank -- I couldn't believe it was that easy, so I tried again.  I was wrong.  It was
insanely easy. -- Water Rat

Keighan -- ...! .... -- Mongo Crush

He says that was a big weapon for such a little thing to use!  He is sorry that he
had to break it. -- Psycho Dad

Freddy Fender -- I salute you.  That was a clean attack and I am very impressed by
your skill.  You arena record does not do you justice. -- Koroshiya Ichi

Pluto -- We, on the other hand, are not impressed with your performance.  But, we
appreciate fighting someone close to our level of experience. -- Psycho Dad

We salute the mail-in tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Bullet Dodgers

Longshot -- Have you considered reincarnation?  Old personality transplanted into a
new rollup?  I've done that, when I had a developed personality I liked and the
gladiator died. -- Jorja

I paid attention to ALL the members of this team, did NOT forget Storm Warning, and
we STILL got thunder and lightning and freezing rain.  See if I do anything nice for
HIM any time soon. -- Jorja

Uranus -- Actually, I don't want to get married at all.  So you don't have to worry
about being forced into something. -- Mary Mei
P.S.  Jorja says to tell your manager "Hi!"  She'd wave, but her hands are too cold
to take 'em out of her pockets or something.

Venus -- Viciously!  Why'd you get all vicious on me?  We could've had fun. -- Lucky
Looie

Hub Capp -- The Baby Targets are all sleeping, and I will NOT let you wake 'em up.
It took us HOURS to get them to sleep. -- Pop Target

Brother Bigfoot -- Huh, my feet are bigger than your feet! -- Storm Warning

I don't like Beggars, okay?  Especially not ones that grab my sleeve and WHINE. --
Slinger

                                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!"
