                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TROCAR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with LEAKY TOILET?  
He actually beat TRADERS OF TROCAR's SMALL TAMER, and walked away with 14 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at TRADERS OF TROCAR.  KORILL SAI lost 11 points to 
UNFLUSHED.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KORILL SAI will provide more easy 
wins...  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for MASS EFFECT's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster URDNOT WREX.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of TROCAR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Death is no 
stranger to a warrior.  TRADERS OF TROCAR's DALAN HILLEI led a good life before 
leaving TROCAR.  Many would be proud to leave behind a 15-10-0.  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

A legion and none of you could flush!?!

Mass Effect -- Wow, and to think I used to be part of the Video Game Industry.  I
started to write ads to your warriors and did a google search and discovered your
team is named after a video game.  Man, was I feeling down / embarrassed to not know
that. -- Assur

Small Tamer -- Yet another reason to not want a cat. -- Not Toilet Paper

     Yeah.

Two-three, but with the associated burdens most unfairly distributed.  I have to do
EVERYTHING on the front page!  How tedious for me.  Hands to shake, babies to kiss--
but no autographs!  You can never be sure what people mean to DO with these free-
floating signatures. -- Hazzan Kazzar

     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."
