                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in XOCHITHLAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, TIMOR UNRED fought MASSEY and 
gained 21 points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY's 2-3-0.  MASSEY has lost to TIMOR 
UNRED, falling 17 points, while helping make KIWI CONNECTION a 2-3-0 turn.  We should 
ask KAHR, JACK about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until 
they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  THE MIDDLE WAY has lost SAML TYNE to the arena in the sky, but they don't 
seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 9-19-0?  CRIMINAL ELEMENT, with any luck 
THE MIDDLE WAY will successfully bloodfeud MS D. MEENER for killing such a warrior as 
SAML TYNE.  Have a little decency, will ya?  Is it really true that XOCHITHLAN has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, XOCHITHLAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in 
XOCHITHLAN again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Kahr, Jack -- You totally WRECKED my carriage!  How'm I going to pay for fixing that,
if I don't win fights? -- Xyokor Yahl

Massey -- Huh, I thought you were half a tractor-maker, you know, Massey-Fergusson?
But you sure don't act like it. -- Timor Unred

Looters.  Scum of the earth. -- Fallon Grimm

Woxton -- You ever notice how the insurance is ALWAYS lapsed when you need it?
There's an evil plot in this. -- Saml Tyne

So what's the deal with a Shaman's Assistant in the arena?  He's got no turn for it.
Is he being punished?  Is he secretly collecting blood samples to be used against us?
Inquiring Minds are worried! -- Quita Rosala

it and that we will see you there!
