                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TRICORUS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for DELTA CANCRI?  
CANCER's proud of him after beating BANTU and getting 6 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  BANTU got smashed by DELTA CANCRI, and lost 2 points!  This Duelmaster 
is like something else!  PANTHER stopped VETERAN MERCENARY dead in his tracks!  Is 
the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of VENTURE BROS. must 
be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that 
I don't?  I don't know what SATAN'S BORED GAMES' been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from VENTURE BROS., that's fer sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  TRICORUS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

                     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 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
