                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JHANS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, GORM HOLLIS fought DANETTE ROGERS and gained 14 points and 
contributed to MIDDLE WAY 17's 2-3-0.  DANETTE ROGERS has lost to GORM HOLLIS, 
falling 9 points, while helping make GIRLS X3 a 2-2-0 turn.  Our Duelmaster has lost, 
folks, lost to RIRORNI ADVENTURER, BUT EVA MENDES is still the Duelmaster because she 
has the most recognition points!  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.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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

Nicole Kidman -- No, I don't think so.  I've heard of those "speed cutters" or
whatever they call them, but I just don't think you get the BEST quilt pieces unless
you cut each one individually.  Call me a purist. -- Ellirin Imbray

Danette Rogers -- If you promise not to GUZZLE it, like you were drinking (shudder)
WATER or something, I've acquired a bottle of legendary status, a hundred-year-old
vintage from the vinyards between Caer and Rodeki.  We could make a little party of
it, just you and me.  You know, a loaf of bread, a glass of wine, and the two of us.
Eh? -- Abalond Egran

Gracie Nicole -- Ah.  Anti-elvish, are you?  I should have known. -- Deety Hinch

No Convicted Thief is getting into MY strongroom! -- Eddie Incher

Stupid Thief!  He tried to steal one of my manuscripts, because, he said--what an
idiot!--the initial was in gold.  I can't allow that kind of barbarism. -- Gorm
