                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for KATI-TEI.  What was the name of that team 
who got 3-1-1 this turn for a total 108-79-6 you ask?  (Sure)  LAZY SUNDAY's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for BAKER'S DOZEN?  LAZY SUNDAY's proud 
of him after beating HOFFA and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
HOFFA's match with BAKER'S DOZEN cost him a loss of 16 points!  What a putz!  VENOM 
DECAY fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No 
one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in BAKER'S DOZEN's eye, as he took 
over Duelmastership?  And wasn't HOFFA fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of TOWER OF SNAKES must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what CALL ME JIMMY's been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from TOWER OF SNAKES, that's fer 
sher.  Like, is HARVESTER popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of 
KATI-TEI!  He's got a 12-30-0, is that good?  See if I ever talk to HOFFA again!  
HOBO JOE was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  HOBO JOE is a real man!  He was 
challenged by HOFFA, 30 points above, and BEAT him!  Dark Arena, anyone?  People were 
asking me did HOFFA REALLY challenge STEEL KUDZU?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but 
it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but STEEL KUDZU wants 
me to write about it since he was defeated by HOFFA.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KATI-TEI ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What a bummer deal for KANDIA!  She just barely was getting 
hers "fighter feet" but got kill by LORD BANE of LAW OF TWO'S!  Those're the breaks, 
I guess.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (HOBO JOE vs. HOFFA, that is.) Hey 
you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or 
have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

                                 JASPER GULCH:  DM 85

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
