     A gloomier than normal atmosphere washed over the assembled stable.  The hiss
and pop of the firewood was all that was to be heard.
     "So explain this cluster to me again...." Reaper hissed through clenched teeth.
"Brickus, you were supposed to challenge Swan, win and leave the throne vacant.
Death's Doorman, you challenge Chericille WIN and get the throne...."
     The stammering continued, "Look boss, I don't know...."
     "SILENCE."  Reaper placed his mug on the table an turned back to the fire.
     "And if that didn't work out, Reign was supposed to challenge Quinore...."  He
again turned to face the assembled group.  "WIN...not KILL...and we have a shot at
the throne."
     "And what do you dumb@#$ do?"
     Death's Doorman opened his mouth to take air, but thought better of it as
Reaper's gaze locked on him.
     "You come back from the tourney all jacked up and you whack not one but two of
Leeta's best warriors."
     Shifting back in their chairs sidelong glances were exchanged....
     "WE like Leeta, understand?  WE.  And worse yet, you idiots don't even come back
to my tower with the Throne...."
     Reaper stood and pivoted around and strode for the door.
     "I have been avoiding them in Andorak for months trying to build some good
will," remarked Shadow under his breath.  "You two are in it for sure...."
     Glancing back, Reaper added, "It appears I need to stop in on the Wanderers and
see what can be done to mend fences.  "Try not to do any more damage while I am
gone...and find that idiot Nygotha before I do."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for KATI-TEI.  Too bad, WANDERERS, but MEDAL 
OF HONOR 26 was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for GRUNT 1?  MEDAL OF HONOR 
26's proud of him after beating VALGARD and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  VALGARD got smashed by GRUNT 1, and lost 11 points!  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome REIGN OF BLADES. 
Aren't THE PLAGUE proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors 
get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of BIRDS must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE PLAGUE?  BIRDS, an easy team to beat if 
I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can THE PLAGUE's REIGN OF 
BLADES be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  KATI-TEI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Chericille -- Hmmm...it appears I am playing too rough.... -- Death's Doorman

Quinore -- That F@#$@#$ umbrella....  Sorry same strat as turn 502.  Something got
into me during the tourney. -- Reign of Blades

Wanderers -- Thank you. -- Brickus Maximus

Leeta -- Apologies on my part.  Death's Doorman runs a bit jacked up normally, but
Reign of Blades has never shown any potential as a killer.  <till now>  I had wins on
the mind, not kills. -- Reaper
P.S.  Evil managers...crap, I am one.  Email/diplo me if you would like.  We could
set up some training minutes if you are blood feuding?  I really have issues keeping
the Doorman toned down.

Reign of Blades -- Drat.  Double drat.  You should HEAR what Leeta has to say about
our performance this time!  Not, "Gee, sorry you died," but, "Curses, more
recruiting!"  She's being very Jorja today. -- Ghost of Quinore
P.S.  Mind you, it isn't as bad for me, being a golem, as it is for Chericille, but
we're neither of us thrilled.

Death's doorman -- Huh, talk about living up to your name!  I didn't need that, you
know.  It just RUINED my day. -- Ghost of Chericille

James Doolittle -- I think you're putting an unfair burden on your opponents.  Either
we lose, in respect of your namesake's service, and get our manager on our necks, or
we win and are accused (okay, maybe not by you, but trust me, it happens) of
disrespect.  I hate that kind of catch-22. -- Forandin
P.S.  Bummer of a day anyway.  Not your fault.

Oh, great!  I was so unnerved by what went before that I lost to Geroge Gruble, the
Visiting Orc.  What a thrill that is!  And what a thrill my manager will make of it.
-- Valgard
P.S.  And it's annoying that it happens on day when she's feeling a lot more Jorja
than Leeta.  Leeta, as a wall of steel, will merely slice and dice us with her tongue
(plus an incredible bonus to damage) whereas Jorja, a basher, will beat us to a pulp
and break all our bones.

Grunt 1 -- Hey, great match!  Let me buy you a drink!  You can't IMAGINE how good it
feels to have the only win on the team today. -- Rambling Ox
P.S.  'Course, I'll really miss Cheri and even Quin, but that's the way it goes.  We
all knew we'd probably die on the sands clear back when we signed up.

Our congratulations to Soldier 1. -- the remaining Wanderers
