                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHANS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with GRAB THE BULL?  
He actually beat STILLMATIC's REBUILD, and walked away with 14 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at PORN IN A BARN while they watched GRAB THE BULL clobber 
REBUILD.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm 
sure JHANS is excited about SSG 7, the new Duelmaster from MEDAL OF HONOR J11.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was VOW TO DESTROY.  The bums at FUR YOUR EYES ONLY couldn't face 
the challenges from VOW TO DESTROY!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in ORVAL 
PAYNE?  His 12-52-1?  MIDDLE WAY 17 ain't talkin', but he's got 89 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

One-four and a death.  There's too much death around here.  The new recruit looked at
the contract, looked at the job description, looked at the death rate... and ran back
out the door.  What a wimp.  But it means we're still looking for someone to replace
Engelbert. -- Orval Payne

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
