                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail NIATOLI ISLAND!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed 
for your deeds.  And let's see, KURELLEU ZIEN fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 16 
points and contributed to THE SEWING CIRCLE's 3-2-0.  TAVELSHAN KETHAL has lost to 
JERK O'LANTERN, falling 4 points, while helping make THE SEWING CIRCLE a 3-2-0 turn.  
And not without some honor, GRANDMA'S FAN now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of NIATOLI ISLAND.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Don't Drop Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     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 NIATOLI ISLAND has more dishwashers per 
capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Jorja -- Thanks! -- Scuttlebutt

We congratulate the graduating Manute Bol, and we salute the tourney participants,
all in one fell swoop.  Probably the fellest swoop you're going to see around here
this summer. -- Jorja and the Sewing Circle

Headless Norseman -- You were a nuisance of a boy, but I didn't wish a fate so
drastic on you.  Still, perhaps now you will be able to find your head. -- Grandma's
Fan

Jerk O'Lantern -- No lie!  You have no concept of courtesy and the proper way to
treat a lady! -- Salorima Tiransith
P.S.  Good thing I'm not a lady, huh?  MANY thanks for those skills.

And two standbys, both of whom are lucky to be alive. -- Tavelshan Kethal and
Hassimor Shomur
