     "What do we do first?" Jorge Black Orc asked.
     "First, we have to pay a visit to Tossed Salad.  Doesn't anybody realize how
HARD it is to find a Happy Peasant who will fight in the arena?"  Arenamaster Harkon
shook his head.  "This should be Merven Dree's job.  Looking after the standbys...."
He sighed.
     "I could just...drop in on the Salad guy," Jorge said.  He glanced at his claws
and buffed them lightly on his shirt.  "Just to remind him not to do that again...."
     "No, it has to be official.  Me.  Tossed Salad is a golem, and golems don't take
hints.  They need it laid out in red."  Harkon checked that his sword was not jammed
tightly into his sheath.  If he needed it, he would need it quickly.
     "I'll come along and hold your coat," Jorge said.  "And then we can begin our
investigation into the disappearance of Merven Dree.  Uh...how do we start that?"
     Harkon shrugged.  "We think what Nancy Drew would have done, and do it."
     Jorge fell into step beside Harkon, then picked himself up and dusted off his
colorful shirt.  "Right....  We do what Nancy would have done.  Uh...do we have to
wear loafers?  She was always wearing loafers.  It was like her signature look.  That
and a sweater from, uh, Bergenholm Goodbar.  I noticed that, because she didn't loaf
even with the loafers on.  Always doing stuff, that girl."
     Harkon looked down at his boots.  After a moment, he said, "No.  No loafers.  I
don't think we could find any to fit, even if we wanted them.  But we'd better get a
magnifying glass.  And a lot of little envelopes."
     "Why?  No, don't tell me, to put lots of little notes in."  Jorge sighed.
"Seems like I remember Nancy Drew having a friend named George.  I'll be him--"
     "Her."
     "What?  No way!  George is a--"
     Harkon shook his head firmly.
     "Well, THIS George is a guy," the Black Orc said.  "And YOU can be Nancy."  He
snickered and licked his fangs.
     Arenamaster Harkon turned and smacked him upside the head.  "You were never rude
around Nancy, so don't start now!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LOOPHOLES to 
see what's new.  Too bad, MY BRAIN ON CHLORINE, but RED DOG GANG was just too good to 
be stopped.  The guys at RED DOG GANG like really pulled together to get a 4-1-0 this 
turn, moving up by 4.  What was the name of that team who got 3-1-0 this turn for a 
total 86-118-3 you ask?  (Sure)  LEGALESE's their name, and fighting's their game!  
MVP award for PRETTY BOY?  RED DOG GANG's proud of her after beating TRUST FUND BABY 
and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  CYCLONE got smashed by 
THE-SHOCKER, and lost 9 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think LACHES should let DUNNO be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  
Who was the wiseguy that said LOOPHOLES' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Blind Cyclops Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  HIT ME WITH... was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 57-66-2 record really that scary?  I don't know what DEATH STUDS 
VII's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from HIT ME 
WITH..., that's fer sher.  Like, is THE SPOTLIGHT popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of LOOPHOLES!  He's got a 19-17-1, is that good?  Speaking 
of challenging 27 points above did you hear about TYPHOON XXII of DEATH STUDS VII vs. 
CLUB CULTURE's THE SPOTLIGHT?  (And how was that intro!) What did TYPHOON XXII 
expect, anyway!  Of course THE SPOTLIGHT won.  Next time stick to people you have a 
chance against, dummy!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Brood King -- Like...like BUGS?  THAT kind of brood?  BEES?  By the Paw of the Great
Dog, I am glad I defeated you!  Just don't sting me, okay?  Especially not on the
nose.  It was my job, and I did it. -- King (canine version)

Chinese Sparerib -- (gnawing happily)  This is (lick, chomp) really tasty stuff.
(chomp, swallow)  Any more? -- Pretty Boy
P.S.  A good dog can always eat.  It's a law of nature.

Anti -- (puzzled look)  Why are all the lines in our fight so short?  It's weird.
It's not NORMAL.  Kinda worries me, you know?  We like things normal. -- The Tail

Fratsfan Noble -- (sniffing carefully)  You don't SMELL like a Fratsfan.  No perfume.
(more sniffing)  Garlic.  You smell like garlic and (sniff) pepperoni.  And (sneeze)
wine.  Red wine, and the Fratsfans go for that white stuff.  So you must not be
Fratsfan.  The nose knows!  (sniff)  No beans, no anise.  So you're not Karnhorn.
Probably somebody southern, that's the garlic belt.  Probably (sniff, snort)
Delarquan.  Masquerading as a Fratsfan!  That's Bad!  (growl)  Never try to fool a
dog!  The nose knows! -- Flower

Moustached Rat -- (faint whimper)  I never did like rats. -- Ghost of Boggins
P.S.  I know I wasn't very attractive, but I was cool, courageous, and trustworthy.
You shouldn't have killed me.  What if you NEED a good dog some day?  Because dogs
don't forget an enemy.

Anti -- If you're NOT back, we will contact the dogs in your neighborhood and see
that some discipline is applied.  We'll tell them to bite YOU and not your
"homework."  So get back here! -- Spot

Flood -- You're saying I drool too much?  Listen, I'm a DOG.  Drooling is one of the
things we do! -- Pretty Boy
