                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
CLIFFHOME brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see CYPRIAN win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CYPRIAN 
beat REDD CORVAIT and REDD CORVAIT lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, CLIFFHOME may be getting bland, as SUI GENERIS stays 
top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, CLIFFHOME?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, CONNIE PAKKIT was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in CLIFFHOME to get a drink than The Choking 
Ogre!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
CLIFFHOME.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Sui Generis -- You've got something about you, I don't deny that, but I figure it's
an elf thing, right?  Me being an orc, I have a *different* something, and it suits
me.  So we'll just go our separate ways and leave it at that.  So long as you don't

kill me. -- Connie Pakkit
P.S.  "Secret admirer," oh, la!  That isn't what *I* would call an orderly drooling
down my cleavage.

Shogun -- There's a bunch of you guys around, sure enough.  Probably 'cause there's a
bunch of us around.  Bummer, even so.  I think it's the echoes that are the worst,
when you set my armor ringing like a bell.  Gods, I hate being inside a bell! --
Carter Pillar

Alonzo -- I just wish you were taller.  I mean, what's the good of a mirror if I have
to stoop over to see myself in it?  That messes up my hair and makes my face red, so
the image doesn't MEAN anything. -- Redd Corvait

Cosmo -- Dang.  I hope you lose control and go through the guardrail and over the
brink, that's what.  Okay, I don't hope that, I'm not cruel.  But I wouldn't mind if
you caromed into the cliff and dented YOUR fenders. -- Bent Fender, and Badly
Scratched Paint

Pelagaeus -- Unless I'm confusing you with somebody else, I agree, Augustine the
Hippo did a number on you.  But that's no reason for YOU to do a number on ME!  I
don't like numbers.  They're so impersonal. -- Kartikaya

Our congratulations to Sui Generis. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

All Finesse -- I, of course, had no problem with your rejected applicant.  But you
might want to remember that some of the Dark Arena Crew, though worthy and dangerous,
do not handle the higher numbers well.  The Mountain Troll was seriously confused. --
Melatas, Spymaster of Cliffhome

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
