                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, THE FAMILY, since LUROCIAN 
ROYALTY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see LORENJIE win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, XARGOTH beat VAISTINIE and VAISTINIE lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as ELOWAN takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide 
Clemens

Prince Connor -- My poppa raised me to hold against royalty, and I can see why. --
Bitt Betro

Felstava -- I see that you are not actually a Brethren but instead a Sistren.
Disconcerting.  I shall have to work on the "avoid preconceptions" aspect of my
training. -- Senjiro

Xargoth -- The fact that you ARE a proper Brethren doesn't help much.  But that's
life in the arena. -- Kirjenz

Steel Spar -- Hmm, you know what they say about the Ratani, that you're all werecats,
but some of you don't know it yet.  Still, for the win, I can go along just fine with
a latent werecat. -- Vaistinie

Okay, I can do this.  So far, so good.  Any chance I can fight Mordant Deserters for
the rest of the year? -- Lorenjie

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
