                                      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, TANNY fought IRINA 
JINZ and gained 22 points and contributed to SERPENTS HOLD's 1-1-0.  IRINA JINZ has 
lost to TANNY, falling 20 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 17 a 3-2-1 turn.  
This week's Duelmaster bout was between WURM KIN and our Duelmaster PUSS N BOOTS, 
making a Dark Arena Challenge.  Defending his title for another turn, PUSS N BOOTS 
kept DARK ARENA's warrior, WURM KIN, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Lucas 
Lounge until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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.  PUSS N BOOTS must have surprised 
ERRATA this turn, after they sent him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't 
hold him!  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in JHANS today as IRBEN JESSIT was bid 
farewell to a 6-4-0 warrior, with COME ON of ERRATA standing silent and pensive.  A 
brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the 
fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in JHANS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JHANS again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Puss N Boots -- This just goes to show that one should never trust a cat. -- Belardon
Frye

Meson -- Can it be that your activation was an input error? -- Irnia Jinz
P.S.  Such as, maybe that number should have been "7143" instead of "714"?  Bummer
for you, a win for me.

The number of guards with unfounded ambitions that one finds hanging around the
arenas is just amazing. -- Farlo Jost

You'd think that after a couple of decades, merchants in arena towns would be more
careful about their usery, wouldn't you? -- Irben Jessit

Tanny -- I hope that serpent you're holding bites you on the butt. -- Fermin Jonsa

Our congratulations to Puss N Boots. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
