                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail CHIMLEVTAL!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, MANDIN ORLE fought AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 18 points 
and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 7's 4-1-0.  Due to his absence and inability to defend 
the throne, BUSTER BUNNY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on 
LODEN NORVIS this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  CHIMLEVTAL has a 
new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that CHIMLEVTAL has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, CHIMLEVTAL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in CHIMLEVTAL and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen 
sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Buster Bunny -- I gotta say, that was a relief.  I'm not cut out for the high-profile
public-relations type of job. -- Loden Norvis
P.S.  I will never get that bit about having a blade "thrust into your waistband,"
you know?  Sounds to me like a recipe for a cut waistband, at the least.  Pants
around your ankles.  That kind of thing.  If you don't actually stab yourself.  Me, I
have my backup weapon SCABBARDED at my waist.

Sunspot -- Damn, that's embarrassing.  Dare I hope you have hidden tourney fights? --
Oswell Quirn

Sol Scorch -- Lemon juice might help, but if the scorch is bad, forget removing it.
-- Ombert Qurl
P.S.  Hey, my mother insisted I know this stuff!

It was almost a reflex.  An embezzler bankrupted my family, causing a lot of distress
and, well, not to put too fine a point on it, suicides, and I had to enroll in the
arena to get eating money.  So, of course I killed him.  He deserved it. -- Mandin
Orle

Cabin Boy -- Huh, maybe I made a mistake in signing up for this stuff.  Guess I'm
stuck with it now, though.  If we meet again on the sands, I get to win next time,
okay? -- Lumus Nelp

Valyndara -- Okay, but Buster already hammered me pretty good. -- Loden Norvis

Buster Bunny -- Congratulations. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
