                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
NIATOLI ISLAND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  DEMONS OF POWER turned their 
0-0-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, 
and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BING 
GAO win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BING GAO beat IRINKESTA and 
IRINKESTA lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, NIATOLI ISLAND may be getting bland, as WRETCHEDMISERY stays top dog in the 
city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to 
know what's new, don't you, NIATOLI ISLAND?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, TATHARLI was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  Gee, CHAOTICDISORDER, ain't it past due for sending 
DEMONICHELLION Dark Arena?  What took ol' '15-5-2' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  
Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next guy, but hey CHAOTICDISORDER, 
whyja send DEMONICHELLION to the Dark Arena, look at his record, huh?  We're all 
going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Demonichellion -- Argh. -- Tatharli, not feeling chatty

Chan -- I don't see how you can be a dwarf.  Sure, you're not TALL, but you ARE
"local," it says so in the newsletter.  There are no dwarves who are native to this
island!  The very idea is ridiculous.  And you're left-handed besides.  Very un-
dwarven, being left-handed.  Stop that. -- Thimbell
P.S.  Besides, that isn't a dwarf type of name.

Boomer -- I hate loud noises. -- Irinkesta

Lord Protector Demonichellion -- What does one give a demonic hellion?  Besides,
perhaps, a sharp blow upside the head?  I have no guidelines on this, and *I* think
we ought to get together and give you a swift launching toward the mainland.  The,
er, bootstrap express, so to speak.  Yes? -- Barango, Commission Agent

Demonichellion -- If there is a god, which has not been proven, but just for the sake
of argument, and if the aforesaid postulated god is capable of "blessing" things or
events, a possibility that raises thorny questions of ethical standards of such
putative deities, then I might wish, assuming a wish is of any use, which is
disputable, that the "god" would "bless" your journey to the mainland.  Failing such
dubious protections, I counsel you to keep your sword handy, as there have been
Strange Things reported in the water. -- Arenamaster Kaghal
P.S.  Probably marsh gas.
