                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
NIATOLI ISLAND.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid! 
Hey everybody, watch out for TAVELSHAN KETHAL, who flew up 12 points in the rankings 
after mashing AMBITIOUS GUARD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was SALORIMA TIRANSITH, who dropped 3 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with JERK O'LANTERN.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was NIATOLI ISLAND's M. CHARDINEE, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by MANUTE BOL.  Can you believe they are paying 
me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid HALLOWIENERS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does NIATOLI ISLAND really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch HALLOWIENERS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from HALLOWIENERS.  And who is this VIN DIESEL you ask, with 55 points and a 
12-18-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the NIATOLI ISLAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

MUST, at least wear a hat and maybe no one will notice. -- Grandma's Fan

Wartless Witch -- Ha, you shouldn't have come out without 'em.  Those warts raise
your armor class by one or maybe even two. -- Tavelshan Kethal

                                   Announcing!

          The No-Tourney ADM arena will be opening for business on the
          first of August of this year!
     It will be ADM Arena #107, making use of that idle installation down at Lirin
Kiv.  If the managers involved in this arena wish to rename it, suggestions will be
entertained through the months of August and September.

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
