                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TATHARLI win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL beat IRINKESTA and IRINKESTA lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, NIMBLE NEUTER has lost 
the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as TATHARLI takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the 
old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do 
you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  VEGGIES was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like CHAOTICDISORDER avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  TATHARLI was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the NIATOLI ISLAND arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Nimble Neuter -- I find you disturbing, though nimble, of course, and I leave you the
not enviable chore of writing a column.  Go for it. -- Tatharli

Bing Gao -- Your name sounds like your sword as it rocochets off my helm. -- Thimbell
P.S.  Rococheting hurts more than ricocheting.

Ambitious Guard....  (sigh)  I really LIKE Danal, you know, but he should stay out of
the arena.  It isn't his venue. -- Irinkesta

Embezzling Scribe?  How can anyone TELL?  His handwriting is AWFUL. -- Rintirisse

Un-Lord Protector Nimble Neuter -- Really, you should see about getting un-neutered,
it would make you so much easier to address.  Also, you're a golem.  I have no idea
what, if anything, one gives to golems, and I'm not even going to wrack my brain
trying to figure it out. -- Barango, Commission Agent
P.S.  My commission isn't big enough.
