Barikala:

     With the lord of Barikala's approval secured, things began to happen quickly.
Runners darted off in all directions.  A bell clanged deafeningly for five minutes.
Groups of people ran back and forth across the island like water sloshing in a
bucket.  There was much activity but no panic.
     "I knew that sooner or later we would have to do... something," Warhal said.
"Our plans have been prepared, tested, rehearshed.  What safety can be found in
sheltered locations," he looked around in satisfaction, "it has been done."
     "Sheltered locations may not mean a lot of shelter," The Icelord said.
     "The people know this--not how great the risk, maybe, but that there will still
be some wherever they go.  This is the best we can do.  We are doing it.  Now you
must do what you can."  He gestured toward the stone tower that marked the physical
location of the magical Light.  "Are there specific actions that you need from those
of us with no magic?"
     The Icelord and Jehanvar consulted with glances.  "No," The Icelord said.  "Stay
out of the way.  Stay calm.  Prevent the population from panicking."
     "And what shall I do?" Bosk asked, once all the Barikalans had hurried off to
their places of refuge.  "And our men," he added, indicating Tempus and the Prince of
Ar.
     "See to our physical defense once we begin the spell against the barrier," The
Icelord said.  "As Lord Warhal noted, there are many hard men here, and not all of
them are going to be... cooperative.  They might try to do almost anything that
seemed to offer advantage to themselves, and some of them will be unconcerned about
risks to others."
     "Three men cannot cover the whole island," Jehanvar protested.
     "They won't need to.  Bosk will protect us.  As for the rest, Lord Warhal seems
competent.  He will take care of the rest.  Or not, but it won't matter in the long
run.  Once the barrier around the island comes down, the situation will change
rapidly."

I regret that this is so short and inconclusive, but I'm in the process of moving
house, and am finding my time a lot shorter than usual. -- the Scribe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in CHIMLEVTAL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  WAR were a bunch of 
dogs after SOL INVICTUS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Phhbltt!  
Too much drinking and too little dodging gave AVENGERS a 0-1-0!  I got a good laugh 
out of it!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  THE ANIMALS is now ranked 8th with a 3-2-0 turn.  Some people 
say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  
Well RAPTOR moved up 2, to 2nd.  What's with GULL?  He actually beat THE ANIMALS' 
LYNX, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at MILITARY 
MAYHEM.  PRIVATE LAPDANCE lost 7 points to TYPHUS.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  
Maybe PRIVATE LAPDANCE will provide more easy wins...  Another fighter (CHOLERA 
11-4-0) challenged another Duelmaster (CERIDWEN 18-10-1).  Life goes on.  Try as he 
might, CHOLERA wasn't good enough at persuading CERIDWEN to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  CHIMLEVTAL thinks LORDS OF 
VALHALLA and their 291-269-16 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up... 
In my day, no team with a 290-265-16 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
MILITARY MAYHEM?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
ULL BLOODSTORM!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Fighting 
is a better craft than farming, DIRDEN I, but you have to pay your dues.  Being 
challenged by CORNELIUS, 24 points above you, is dues.  CORNELIUS beat DIRDEN I.  
CAESAR'S POOL HALL calls this fighting?  In my day...  I hate going to the effort of 
writing about the kind of fights that BANSHEE gets in.  She fights people like ULL 
BLOODSTORM, 8 points below.  I thought BANSHEE showed great skill and promise when 
she overcame ULL BLOODSTORM.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of CHIMLEVTAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  TARVOS 
TRIGARANOS of SOL INVICTUS got 9 points for removing another young punk.  Tough luck, 
LORDS OF VALHALLA!  TARVOS TRIGARANOS had a sure-fire victory when he challenged 
LE'LORINEL, 26 points below him.  Was anyone really surprised when LE'LORINEL bit it? 
Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
