     "It's infamous!"  Ardane, spy reporter for Andorak, scowled and drew back his
arm to throw his goblet through the window at the crowd outside.  Then paused to
drain the contents before resuming the about-to-throw-it position.
     "Now, now, it isn't THAT bad."  Desiree of Darkholm, always the voice of sweet
reason at these meetings, laid a hand on his, smiled, and guided the goblet back to
the table.  "It's just a little mistake, you know."
     "Ha!"  Debby Tonte of Free Blades stabbed viciously into her drink with an
umbrella.  "That's easy for YOU to say.  The Delarquans aren't complaining."
     "Of course not."  Galen of Talahya looked faintly envious as she pulled a chunk
of pineapple out of her glass and began to nibble it.  "That's because the Delarquans
are THE Masters of Kung-Fu."
     "You think some managers are complaining," Olaf Modeen said, "you should hear
what the GLADIATORS are saying.  All these rumors about the Aimed Blows having
'special enhancements'..." he shook his head.  "I know it isn't true, you know it
isn't true, the top managers know it isn't true--"
     "Of course it isn't true!"  Ketchum, spy reporter for Crysalis, matched scowls
with Ardane and said, "If ANY one style was going to get a special enhancement, it
should be--"
     "Not now, Ketch," Olaf said.  "Nobody gets, nobody has gotten, nobody WILL get,
special enhancements.  That's always been the rule, and we all know how the Greywand
hates changes.  The real problem--"
     "Try telling that to some of the managers," Debby muttered, peering into her
glass for more fruit.  "They don't want to hear it.  Every time I turn around, some
manager is claiming that someone got a special change and, you know, HE didn't and
it's all unfair."
     "The REAL problem," Olaf said firmly, over-riding her voice, "is explaining to
all the second-rate Aimed Blows why they haven't received any of these 'special
enhancements' they keep hearing about."
     "There aren't any special enhancements," Ardane growled.  "None.  Just managers
who noticed that the Kung-Fu Master is a lot more dangerous than anyone expected, and
have put YEARS into the study of Kung-Fu and learned how to really USE it for their
own gladiators."
     "Saved a lot on weapons, too," Ketchum murmured.
     "But people keep complaining," Debby Tonte said.  She fished one last piece of
fruit out of her glass and stared at it dubiously.
     "There WERE no special enhancements," Olaf said.  "There ARE no special
enhancements.  There WILL BE no special enhancements.  It's all a matter of deep
study and skilled management."
     "Like anyone's going to believe that!"
     "They have no choice," Ketchum said.  "If no 'special enhancements' were given
out, then none can be taken back.  It is the way it is.  What's the point in
complaining because the sun rises in the east?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LAPUR games.  Former top team STREET WALKERS was 
unseated this week as WILL DUEL 4 MEAD moved up from 7th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at FORCE OF NATURE's 
guildhouse after a 1-4-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 11th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week WILL DUEL 4 MEAD went 5-0-0 to move up 6 in the rankings.  My praise to 
MID EARTH for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought 
round deserving of notice!  JASON caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested LADYBUG and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, JON put down DIRTY SANCHEZ, causing him to 
lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was not present for the title 
fight this week as AGASAYA boldly challenged KOJIRO in order to strive for the 
Duelmasters honors?  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
AGASAYA, Duelmaster of LAPUR!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top 
team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  LAPUR, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is EQUESTORS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in 
the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of BLACK SAMURAI are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  ENERGIZER BUNNY take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in LAPUR.  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that CAMULUS posted a challenge against the 
more highly recognized BRICKHOUSE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
CAMULUS was overcame by BRICKHOUSE.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of 
steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  YOUR MAMA must hold silent, for this 
week she was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by BELEG of MID 
EARTH.  Hail BELEG for thy victory!  Walk proud, warriors of MID EARTH!  By striking 
down MENTU you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in 
LAPUR.  My hearty congratulations SOLAR FLARE, for thy revenge upon MORRIGAN, slayer 
of thy fallen comrade.  Next time she will know better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide 
both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  
Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in LAPUR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Energizer Bunny -- You set me up with a set back.  Now I need to set things aright.
-- S'tou

Foredoom -- Good pickup. -- Ba-Boom

Urat -- Can't argue with that.  You put me on my ear. -- Buzzsaw

Anshin -- An ignoble ending to what was actually a pretty good fight. -- Petunia

Forcible -- I know, it's not right to dance after losing, but I needed that shot in
the arm. -- Sparkle

Agasaya -- It's gonna take me awhile to recover from those shots...Looks like I'll be
putting my knitting on hold for a few days. -- Your Mama

Mentu -- What can I say????  How about, "thanks for not killing me!" -- Miss Conduct
II

Zero Visibility -- If it's any consolation, my visibility isn't that great either. --
Brickhouse (how much can you really see peeking out behind a shield)

Postumus -- The sad part is, that's how I win most of my fights. -- Goldie Showers

Bill -- Aww why bother...you never respond. -- Dirty Sanchez

Black Whine 'n Cry -- I'm sorry, all I hear is blah, blah, blah...and then the
pitter-patter of feet running in the opposite direction. -- Roadkill and the Street
Walkers

Kyoko -- Who piddled in your wheaties?  If Red Tiger means that much to you,
challenge me again and I'll see that you join her. -- Goldie Showers

All -- Little shorter on personals this turn than I would like.  Left a few people
out, so if that's you, sorry.  Didn't want to miss another turn so I'm kind of crunch
timing them.
P.S.  When I write I tend to just go, so please forgive the numerous spelling errors
as I have no time to correct any this time and have no word processor...except for
Rewrite; he's supposed to talk like that (if you haven't figured that out yet, he may
actually be brighter than you. :) -- Sporkis

Sparkle Farkle -- Temporary?  Yes.  Tough?  Not quite.  While every warrior has his
or her share of triumphs and defeats, mine have been in part experimental, part
personal amusement.  I was a tad overzealous to avenge my fallen kin and jump into
this game before I was quite ready.  When one does not use one's talents often, they
do tend to rust.  I have been sharpening my blade these past few incursions and it is
almost ready to gleam bright.  One more I do believe, then I should be prime to
inflict some considerable devastation and start making my climb to the mountain top.
When I do, as a favor, I'll try my best to aim my weapon away from your direction.
When that time comes. -- Atima

Army of Darkness -- As I sit here still trying to scrape the little remnants of dry
blood off my armor, I have to ask myself.  Did I need to do that?  Did I need to take
that life?  The answer.  No, not really.  But I still enjoyed it anyhow.  Still don't
take my callous nature personally, inflicting your loss wasn't intentional.  I just
had some anger to take out and got carried away in the moment.  Unfortunately Hunger
Pang fell victim.  As a gesture of my remorse I will make a suitable sacrifice to the
god of your choosing for penance and safe passage to the afterlife for your fallen
comrade.  Just nothing that has a favorable aroma while burning, otherwise a certain
fool might take it for BBQ and desecrate it.  Still I most assured, regardless you
would like to avenge your fallen comrade and restore your team's honor.  So be it
then, I will put my current plans on hold for the time and make preparations.  I do
ask though whoever you decided to send, please choose someone who isn't so much of a
gusher.  The cleaning bills on this armor are outrageous. -- Kyoko
P.S.  Narrowly killed?!?  Narrowly?!?  I wasn't even desperate once!  Those scribes
sure do take liberties with their reports.

Tye Foon -- Well the second verse was the same as the first I suppose.  I see you've
gotten quite proficient with that little sword, haven't you?  You know I might be
inclined to be more upset this time if it wasn't for the fact of a bloodfeud..  That
and I was carrying more in armor than I do in my actual size.  Best to protect myself
from serious injury and put in a valiant effort, rather go toe to toe and risk
digging a even deeper hole that I am already in with your manager.  Still I was able
to keep pace with you regardless to a point.  I wonder how I would do if I wasn't
dragging my feet? -- Tessa
P.S.  I didn't fall down in the sands.  I was lying down trying to charm you with my
feminine wiles....  Apparently you don't duel for that team, I guess. :)

Forte -- Mmmmm....  Not what I was expecting going in.  While you were not my first
choice, I still had a frame in mind.  By rights the grapes should have soured quickly
against me.  Still, perhaps this requires some more thought.  Regardless my goal was
achieved, regrettable it was at your expense. -- Atima

Gregsorsy -- Tans twus trees..Ummm.. Fers, Savens....Youz knowls Is mayz noots knowls
howz tus conts, boots avens Is knowls noots tus bits oofs meurs thans Is cans choows.
Is mayz hooks purdy lik a hairers orcs azz, boots Is nos pansty. -- Rewrite

Siren -- I have my good days and my bad days.  You caught me on a bad day, your buddy
Hunger Pang caught me on a good one.  Care to place a wager on what type it will be
if we dance again?  It could cost you dearly. -- Kyoko
P.S.  As much as I do love mid-day naps.  You can't carry a tune if your life
depended on it.  No pun intended.

Enyalius -- Normally I would bloodfeud but in this instance you did me a favor.
Cicero was headed to the Dark Arena. -- Spartacus

Pier -- Thanks for the learns and the bump.  Prior to this my longest fight was 3
minutes, I won that one too.  It was another TP. -- Aureolus

Beleg -- Don't they pay you enough to get some armor? -- Gallienus

Kojiro -- We were pretty evenly matched, wouldn't you say?  I guess the better
fighter won.  But the loss cost me four spots on the banzuke, all the way down to
ozeki. -- Marius

Lapur -- Maybe I will run into some of you guys at the tourney. -- Spartacus

Whirlwind -- Hmm, I still have work to do on that, I guess.  (shrug)  I was trying to
reap the whirlwind, you see?  But first I guess I have to sew it.  Do you need
anything sewn?  I can do a very fine seam. -- Ladybug
P.S.  Sewing a fine seam is one of the "ladylike accomplishments" that my mother
wanted me to have.

Camulus -- Ah, did your manager lead you to believe that what you would be doing in
the arena had some connection to WAR?  Tsk.  He was really selling you a bill of
goods on that one!  I've been in wars, and this isn't anything like. -- Cezzaro

Has anybody noticed how the Commission makes the Veteran Mercenary fight with one
hand tied behind his back?  The wonder is not that he loses a lot, but that he
doesn't lose every time. -- Snowshoe

Hoffa -- You are, of course, doomed. -- Red Lily
P.S.  Completely.

Fortitude -- Ah, well...you seem to be well supplied with it, at least.  This is
good?  If not, well, I'm new to this gladiating stuff and haven't figured out all the
nuances yet. -- Cloud Tiger

Dirty Sanchez -- You WANT monsters in your bathtub? -- Red Lily

Goldie Showers -- Thank you, ma'am, your generosity shall be legendary among the
dead.  But I fear it will do me little good, for I seem destined to a posthumous
adventure, if any adventure at all gets going, and the thought of this is...
alarming.  Sure, I can't DIE, but what if there really IS a "fate worse than death"?
-- Ghost of Red Tiger

Hunger Pang -- Carry granola bars everywhere.  They DO assuage hunger, but one never
eats them casually, they aren't good enough. -- Cezzaro
P.S.  Although a suitable dipping sauce does help.

Our congratulations to Kojiro. -- the Cardow Hunters

Ladybug -- Lady, sorry for the challenge...Storm Front told me I had to prove myself
again...he said you would be a worthy challenge...again. -- Whirlwind

Ladybug -- Ok, ok, I feel a little ashamed I told Whirlwind to place his challenge
against you...seeing as I have told him to challenge you in the past. -- Storm Front,
mgr. Force of Nature

Aronwe -- That was the fairest challenge I could come up with for Wendy. -- Storm
Front, mgr. Force of Nature

Brickhouse -- Please find your way out of my bracket. -- Zero

Tessa -- How many licks does it  takes to get to the center of the tootsie pop?  Why
is the sky blue?  Why can't you divide anything by zero?  How many of your losses can
come against Force of Nature?  All unanswerable questions...oh, well, except that
last one...all of them! -- Tye Foon

Tye Foon -- Be nice.  Oh, well, then again, she did kill Sticket. -- Storm Front

Miss Farkle -- My breath?  I knew I shouldn't have eaten that clove of garlic before
our match. -- Tye

That is the only way you were going to win. -- Storm Front

Brickhouse -- We have Tessa under control for the next three turns. -- Force of
Nature

Roadkill -- With my current team I am not sure how long I will keep your respect.
They are pitiful! -- Storm Front

Siren -- The only reason you miss Sticket is because she would have given you a lot
of future wins! -- Storm Front

E. Bunny -- I am actually quite surprised that you did not win.  Zero has been known
to lose to house warriors...twice! -- Storm Front

Tessa -- All in all, once the Force has had our fill of revenge we thank you for the
condolences.  We understand the tremendous pressure you are under to come out from
under the shadow. -- Storm Front, mgr. Force of Nature

Barul -- Call me a slug will ya!! -- Vega

Morrigan -- It's a good thing managers can't fight in the arena.... -- Venus

Gods of War -- We just got done with one Bloodfeud now we have to go right into
another...hope you're prepared. -- Venus

Juniban -- Grrrrrrr. -- Solar Flare

Siren -- Hmmm my desperation was a bit off that fight, want to try again sometime? --
Mensa

Lance -- It is a good thing I relieved myself before our match or all those blows to
my kidneys would have been quite embarrassing. -- Ankaa

Uncle Wolf --  I feel your pain.  I didn't have time to go recruiting so I had to get
a warrior from the Temporary Warriors Agency.  I'm sure she is hoping to become
permanent...but between you and me, I don't think so. -- Venus
