                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly NIYTYOLE HOLD games.  Former top team FRAYED SANITY 
was unseated this week as BAD BEATS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 5-0-0 record which LAND 
OF OZ managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  HOBO CASSEROLE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested BUSEY and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, PARSIFAL put down PHAROS, causing him to lose 13 points of 
recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the 
challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster OOKLA THE MOK himself.  
This time out RUNNY LEGS made hers bid for the throne as she Bloodfeuded OOKLA THE 
MOK in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail RUNNY LEGS, Duelmaster of NIYTYOLE HOLD!  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIYTYOLE HOLD "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  NIYTYOLE HOLD, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is SHEWISH DINER, a guild shunned and avoided by many 
in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that 
spent the better part of last week avoiding SHEWISH DINER.  Indeed it was BAD BEATS.  
For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how 
DATABASE EDITOR of BIG LAKE GROOVE challenged down 25 points to HOMELY HARLOT.  All 
the city knows the duel went in favor of DATABASE EDITOR.  I shall not fail to spread 
the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.  I can not but mention with 
disdain the name of ARMENIUS who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 9 
points below in the rankings.  I thought ARMENIUS showed great skill and promise when 
he was bested by SHARD.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of 
certain doom.  DOG ON THE LOOSE has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena 
victory!  My hearty congratulations RUNNY LEGS, for thy revenge upon OOKLA THE MOK, 
slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Some say a warrior 
is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then 
a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

                     PAYMENTS BY CHECK AND MONEY ORDER -- CHANGE

Please note that because of new bank regulations, we can no longer accept any check or 
money order drawn off a non-US bank, even if it is in US Funds.  We were just informed 
by our bank that the fee to process these checks is $40, which is crazy high!

Many apologies to our foreign players, but you will need to either get a check from a 
US bank (Chase, Citigroup, etc.) or pay via credit card.  

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or
