DECEASED:  Magdala of the Open Hand died in the infirmary today following a contest
in the local arena.  Beloved by her teammates, Magdala was a fiery redhead whose
intelligence was surpassed only by her courage.
     A basher who preferred finesse over brute strength, Magdala began her career
with a record of 5 wins and 1 loss.  But her strong mind was unable to compensate for
her lean stature and she lost 13 of the next 16 bouts.  She never stopped learning
and towards the end she finally began to come to terms with her contradictory nature,
winning 3 of her last 5 matches.  While her final record of 11-16 may not be
impressive, her gracefulness was truly a sight to behold.
     She will be remembered as a clever teacher to the warriors of Mid Earth who
always seemed to learn so much from her; a student and confidant of the women at
Cardow Hunters who advised her on desperation strategies and how to use their male
teammates to break down walls; and a friendly rival to Clan Crow whom she often
fought... walloping Biff O'Bragh, collapsing at the feet of Cairraig Amadan, the
demise of Paddy O'Sadism, and the final match with Spin McDuecan.
     But what we will remember most is sitting around evenings at The Burning Tree
sharing a drink and being mesmerized by her smile. -- The Open Hand

     "Well, that does it." Tane says as the team watched the pyre catch.
     Bahram adds, "We'll add her name to the arena wall later and the obituary will
be printed in the newsletter."  Then turns to Darius, "Thanks for coming down.  How
are things on the isle?"
     "Meh, as good as can be expected I guess.  Which means... not so good."  Darius
turns to face Bahram, "I've learned moves, I never thought possible.  I've fought
faster and harder than I ever knew I could!  And still, I've yet to win a match.  I
almost regret leaving for it's time I could have spent here."
     Iryana puts an arm around Darius and leans in, "Hang in there, it'll come.  And
when it does, Magdala will be cheering you on."
     The reverie that follows is interrupted as Owsly and the rest of Clan Crow
approach, "Ho der!  We come ta pay are respects fer ye fallen clanmate."
     Bahram returns the greeting, "Thank you, your presence is welcome."
     Owlsy clasps Bahram's forearm and replies, "Aye, a good lass she 'as.  An' a
fine fighter.  'er face'll be missed at yon arena.  Spin's beside 'imself wid grief.
Me thinks he 'ad a right crush on da lass.  Come up 'ere man an' show 'em what we
brung."
     Spin approached the grieving Open Hand and offers a bottle, "It's a bottle of
da's clan's best whiskey.  I was tinkin' of askin' Magd'la ta share uh drink wit me.
I dannae expect it ta be at her funeral.  If'n ye don mind, I be addin' it ta da
fire."
     "Give the first shot to Magdala," Darius said.  "But, she'd be disappointed if
we wasted the whole bottle.  Atash, grab some cups and let's all share a last drink
with her."
     Always prepared to toast the moment, Pub O'Conner steps up and pulls a bottle
out of his tunic.  "Fine idea, lass! I be drinkin' ta dat!"
     They spend the time sharing stories and at some point during the evening, Bahram
approaches Spin McDuecan, "You know, I still have to spank you for this."
     Spin looks at Bahram, "Aye, I'd tink less of ye if ye dinnit.  But don' expect
me ta bend over for ye."  With that both warriors share a grin, knowing that any
grievances will be solved on the sand.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to CARDOW HUNTERS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the STREET 
WALKERS stable.  It was a tough week for CLAN CROW, to drop 4 places in the rankings. 
Coming up with a solid 5-0-0 outing, STREET WALKERS has advanced 9 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for LEAD LANCER, who flew up 19 points in the 
rankings after mashing CHISAHARU like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was WINDFLOWER, who dropped 11 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with STEEL SHARPENER.  Our battling duelmaster 
CAPTAIN KIRK has managed to hold the title, fending off IRYANA's none too subtle 
advances.  Better luck next time, OPEN HAND.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 
gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad MID EARTH?  Big bad MID EARTH.  Big bad MID EARTH.  LAPUR's afraid of the 
big bad MID EARTH.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch OPEN 
HAND's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from MID 
EARTH.  And who is this ANSHIN you ask, with 79 points and a 17-7-0 record.  Ooh, the 
tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Big deal, so CASIMIR PULASKI got mashed in 
the Dark Arena.  With his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. 
(Waka waka).  There's got to be more reason for the sending of CASIMIR PULASKI to the 
Dark Arena than his record (15-8-0).  Anybody got any ideas BOHICA?  This week 8-17-1 
GOWRON was sent to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who 
might take notice of this.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will 
may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the LAPUR giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  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

Gratters ter yon Pertecter Casimir Pulaski.  Ye dinna bein bendin' over nay more.
Aye. -- Oremaster

Bahram -- Try the Iranians.  They have plenty of unobtanium with their new reactors.
-- Plutonium Punch

Tane -- You are right.  That seems to be all I need with you.  ("....without weapons,
armor, or offensive effort with one hand tied behind your back...") -- Steel
Sharpener

Owsly -- Quiet, now.  Don't be telling the lovely Kim that stuff.  Or you will feel
the lead in my lance in your afterburners. -- Lead Lancer,

Embezzling Scribe -- Get the lead out of your pants or feel my lance in 'em. -- Lead
Lancer

Naowyn -- You are a classy lass and better than me.  Salute. -- Brass Bander

Avox -- I squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezed the most out of that one.  I did!  How did it feel
down there in the muddy, bloody sand? -- Steel Squeezer

Metal Mincers -- Well done.  I am proud of your 2-1 this turn. -- Ora

I hope all our Lapur Mailer candidates did well and brought home some honors.  Good
luck, all. -- Ora

Oremaster, hon; will you please stay on your side of the bed at night? -- Ora (Well,
except for, well, you know.)

Street Walkers -- Looks like Roadkill's back on the menu.  Welcome back! -- the Open
Hand

Miley Virus -- I was trying something a little different to break my losing streak.
Guess it worked. -- Bahram

Wenien -- I feel like I'm in a bad slasher show.  I avoid one just to turn around run
into another. -- Tane

Broadzilla -- That little power nap on the sand was quite refreshing.  Really woke me
up for the second minute. -- Atash

Our congratulations to Casimir Pulaski. -- Jorja and the Cardow Hunters

Gowron -- That was amazingly good for me, not only the win, but skills!  Thanks.  I
guess this being the windy season is working for me. -- Windflower
P.S.  Not that there's any season that is NOT fairly windy here.

Sulu -- You put that fire out in a hurry!  You must have fire-fighting experience. --
Grassfire, barely smoldering

Capt. Antsy Pants -- Gods, the thought of it!  Better you than me. -- Claybank, no
ants

Calypso -- Just a little frustrating to me, but only a little given the experience
difference.  I guess the handicapper was careless in picking our match, eh? --
Snowflake, glad to be alive

Kim Kardashian -- Yes, well, you're another victim of careless matching, I guess.
And I'm lucky in it.  Hang in there. -- Wintersong
