                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in NIATOLI ISLAND this turn, and 
let's start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, LONE STAR fought 
AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 18 points and contributed to THE SEWING CIRCLE's 3-2-0.  
MOLLY HATCHET has lost to BLADE SINGER, falling 7 points, while helping make 
MALEFACTION a 2-3-1 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, KOBALT kept THE 
SEWING CIRCLE's warrior, DIRTY HOWEL, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm 
a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Don't Drop Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in NIATOLI ISLAND and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in NIATOLI ISLAND again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Monolyth -- Huh, kinda like beating my head against a stone wall.  And it sure felt
good to stop... eventually. -- Dirty Howel

Shombified -- Yesh, right.  Wha'ever you shaid. -- Drunkard'sh Path

Caged Rat -- I never could stand rats. -- Lone Star

The Rake -- Got your diplo.  Yep, if you see a Middle Way team, I forget what number
I'm up to now, I think maybe... 22?, in Noblish Island, it's me.  For my sins or
something.  Tell your friend to ask questions, it makes it easier to help. -- Jorja

All -- What?  Shar can't beat up a Rabit and she tears it up in the Dark Arena.
Let's see if she can do it again. -- Rake

Kobalt -- I admit you seen a good fighter.  Surely the best the Ravaged Queens ever
had.  But you're wrong about something, though.  I have two fighters better than you.
They are waiting for you on the mainland. -- Uncle Rake
P.S.  They are resposible for about 20 of your team's losses.

All -- Well I sent 4 fighters to the Dark Arena hoping to get 2 good warriors back.
Alas the Arena folds sent me 4 of General Ikillyou's drinking buddies. *sigh*  Well 4
more trips to the DA. -- Rake

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
