                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, XOCHITHLAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, THE MIDDLE WAY, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  
Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ULRIK VENN win a fight and gain 22 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ULRIK VENN beat HOWARD THE DUCK and HOWARD THE DUCK lost 
15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
SALOME TORENE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  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, XOCHITHLAN?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  XOCHITHLAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you. 
DARQUE ANGELS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like DUCKS UNLIMITED avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  HORVANTH IRNDE was challenged more times this turn 
than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have SWAN 
in a challenge, going down 8 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought SWAN 
showed great skill and promise when she was overcame by POOPS THROUGH DIAPER.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Whoa!  I'll even buy BLACK GUARD a drink 
tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good 
side!  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next guy, but hey BASH BROS 
BABY, whyja send OOZING DROOL to the Dark Arena, look at his record, huh?  Honor is 
like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the XOCHITHLAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Our congratulations to Black Guard.  Maybe now you'll be able to afford a white-wash
job? -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

One-four and no standbys.  How tedious for us.  The age of miracles is over once
more. -- Horvanth Irnde

I think it's worth noting that Scrooge McDuck actually bought me a drink after the
fight. -- Salome Torene

Jorja -- We'll see about how long I'm around for.  Most of my slow arena teams are a
combination of arena/tourney guys.  This team is mostly arena guys at the moment, but
that is likely to change going forward, so I might keep it open for some time.  But
that could change next turn, too.  Thanks for the welcome, though! -- Assur

Swan -- Next time I'll open my diaper completely to try and drive you off sooner.  Or
do swans have a false reputation and the smell is what lured you to me? -- Poops
Through Diaper

Hannibal Witcher -- Are you a witch?  I'm standing, gawking, and Oozing Drool

Selune Staredge -- Get away from me, you stranger. -- Not the Mom Cry

Pond -- I could stare at your ripples all night. -- Doesn't Sleep

To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the 
Commission.  Each warrior may have up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be 
categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
