                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JHANS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, JILL fought EDDIE 
INCHER and gained 22 points and contributed to BABES' 2-0-0.  EDDIE INCHER has lost 
to JILL, falling 14 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 17 a 1-4-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and KYRA remains JHANS' top warrior 
for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at Lucas Lounge?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the BABES 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on JHANS, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided BABES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was ACT OF 
MALICE.  Anyone surprised?   
     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 JHANS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in JHANS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Kyra -- Neat and efficient.  No time wasted.  I like that. -- Chaeny Grove
P.S.  Would you like to attend a folksong festival with me?  There's a good one
coming up in a couple of weeks.

Distort -- No!  I had that quilt pieced FLAT, all the corners matching PERFECTLY, and
you had to go and yank it around.  It'll take me HOURS to fix it. -- Ellirin Imbray
P.S.  You will understand if you're here long:  We all have to find hobbies, because
things are so quiet otherwise.  I quilt, and sometimes do a little stitching in the
Infirmary.

What does a Rirorni find to Spy on here?  It isn't like we're at war or likely to be,
since we smashed them so thoroughly fifteen years ago. -- Abalond Egran

I wouldn't mind fighting the Fratsfa Slave if he were truly Fratsfan and could maybe
hook me up with some antiquarians in the north.  But he's hopeless. -- Carlin Granz

This Mordant Deserter isn't much of a contest, but he knows a lot about swords--
except for how to use them.  I think maybe I'll try collecting swords.  A lot more
useful, pinch comes to shove, than Carlin's antique snuffboxes. -- Eddie Incher

I am sorry to see the Dark Arena deaths of Lisa and Mary, but it seems to support my
conviction that as tourney incubators go, these Very Small Arenas don't cut it.
There just isn't enough competition to make their records here meaningful in the
greater gladiatorial community.  Okay, maybe an unsupported comment HERE, at least,
since Lisa and Mary didn't fight in the most recent tourney.  But it's an aspect of
the Very Small Arenas that I've been mulling over, and if anyone cares to make a
comment or raise a point of dispute, I would be grateful. -- Jorja, the Middle Way

Welcome back to Act of Malice, good to see you back. -- Jorja
