                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail CLIFFHOME!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, RUMAKI fought RUNNA DAMILL and gained 13 points and 
contributed to FREAKISH's 1-0-0.  RUNNA DAMILL has lost to RUMAKI, falling 26 points, 
while helping make U.A.K. a 2-1-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between 
CONNIE PAKKIT and our Duelmaster POULAN, making a challenge.  Defending his title for 
another turn, POULAN kept JINDA-BAN's warrior, CONNIE PAKKIT, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Choking Ogre until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  JINDA-BAN has cause to stand tall, as they were CLIFFHOME's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding 
JINDA-BAN more than any other team we find BOY O'S.  CLIFFHOME, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that KARTIKAYA 
from JINDA-BAN was CLIFFHOME's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Kudos go out to AVERAGE JOE this turn, for revenging U.A.K.'s 
bloodfeud against BOY O'S' warrior WALDO.  Well done.  Is it really true that 
CLIFFHOME has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, CLIFFHOME, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in CLIFFHOME and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in CLIFFHOME 
again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Poulan -- I can say with confidence that this was a good fight, and for both of us.
You got skills and the title, but I got the real prize:  graduation and retirement.
About time, too!  Thanks for your help here. -- Connie Pakkit
P.S.  Ah, I see that you got graduation also.  Great!  I don't mind sharing in the
least.

Vanilla -- So my teammate Kartikaya likes you, big deal.  He should be the one

fighting you, then. -- Bent Fender, feeling miffed, not to mention whapped
P.S.  Did you know that French vanilla is more about eggs than about the vanilla
beans?  Weird.  Why don't they call it Eggs vanilla?

Runna Damill -- Hmm, I think you should be run through the mill again, with the
stones set closer together.  I think you should be ground really fine, and then not
come back!  (noises off)  Oh, pooh.  Connie says that's rude of me.  Like I care!  I
can be as rude as anybody if I put my mind to it.  And I don't like losing fights,
which puts my mind to it pretty fast. -- Redd Corvait

Romeo -- You may not be much of a lover, but you're certainly a good student. --
Kartikaya
P.S.  And I don't want you for a lover, either.  Get real!  I'm a guy.
P.P.S.  I might be interested in Juliet, though.

An Embezzling Scribe?  This is an outrage piled onto an insult! -- Wheelie June
P.S.  But at least he isn't a golem.  That helps a little.

Greatsword?  Get real!  I'm too short for a greatsword, although that makes the very
low/low business sensible.  I can't move fast dragging that huge thing around. --
Connie Pakkit the Indignant

Our congratulations to Poulan. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

Angelo -- "Viciously subdued."  Huh.  You elves have it in for us orcs.  Don't bother
to deny it, I can tell it's true. -- Kablok Krag, Temporarily Captured Orc

Jocko -- How crude of you. -- Menaeriadil, once a slave in Fratsfa

Ringo -- If I hadn't been stretching myself up to an unreasonable height, you might
have found me more difficult. -- Bardon the Broke, standin for the Osksi Noble
P.S.  Ah, who'm I fooling, I'd've lost anyway, probably.  The way my luck's been
going lately, a two-year-old could come along and steal my candy.

Wheelie June -- Ah, but I could teach you things you wouldn't believe, woman!  Come
by my place and I will show you how to pad an expense account past all recognition.
-- Shimalirien, Expense Accountant
