     "First it snows, and then it rains, and then the river rises," Irina grumbled.
"How're we going to get new teams with the river rising?"
     "By boat?" Kolly suggested.
     "Oh, sure, turn everything into a joke!  What--"
     Fermin put his hand over his teammate's mouth (gently, because Irina had been
known to bite).  "Give it a rest.  We'll think of something.  And we don't really
have a bad climate, as you very well know.  We're just having a bad season."
     "Global soaking."
     "Irina--"
     "What's WRONG with just being 'some kind of sideshow', huh?  It's low stress.
We can do dumb things and no one notices and laughs.  We can slack on the practice
and still win fights.  We can--"
     "No, we can't, not if we want to retain our self-respect," Fermin countered.
"Stop arguing!  Small arenas have recovered before this."
     "We need a circus," Kolly said suddenly.  "People will come for a circus."
     "Gladiators?"
     "Who knows?  Worth a try, isn't it?  Let's get a circus together!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  THE FALLEN ANGELS had cause to celebrate, 
after GENGHIS COHEN got 16 points by beating CHESTER GRELL.  IRINA JINZ certainly had 
a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to TANNY and losing 11 points in the 
process!  In JHANS, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new 
Duelmaster, TANNY.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
JHANS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Lucas Lounge.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
