                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly COLLUSION COVE games.  Warriors--remember that glory 
waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week RUSH REBORN went 2-3-1 to move 
up 6 in the rankings.  A new guild, PURE EVIL, entered COLLUSION COVE with a clash 
this turn, showing off a 4-0-0 record.  Indeed, a worthy addition to the city guilds. 
RED BARCHETTA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested THE ERR MUTT and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, HENDRICK put down SCORN BREAD, causing it to lose 13 points of 
recognition in the process.  Although HOFFA made a valiant effort, it did not suffice 
to topple the reign of victorious MACS.  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 COLLUSION COVE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided 
when this week's challenge seeking began.  RUSH REBORN is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better 
part of last week avoiding RUSH REBORN.  Indeed it was CELTIC PRIDE.  I can not but 
mention with disdain the name of CORK who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a 
full 8 points below in the rankings.  I thought CORK showed great skill and promise 
when he was defeated by MR. CLEAN.  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!  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as 
ELOQUENT KNIGHTS.  Witness, last turn they sent ERETHISM, a 2-0-0 fighter, to the 
Dark Arena!  My condolences to HOUSE OF GRAIN for their loss of a very promising 
warrior, ROLLDOZER.  ROLLDOZER went to doom before the arms of ODALISQUE, a warrior 
of ELOQUENT KNIGHTS.  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in COLLUSION COVE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now 
longer can I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and 
soon!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is 
a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Things I'll Never Get -- Congratulations on the fine Duelmaster fight by Macs.  Well
done.  By the way, The Creepster asked me to send this question to you, though.  Did
you name him Mac instead of Big Mac out of deference to the fearless FONZ leader? --
The Crazy Creeps Scribe

Dwayne The Dog -- On behalf of Consortiumites everywhere, it was my pleasure to spank
your rump.  It really, really, really was quite a pleasure. -- Clark Kent

The Err Mutt -- To err is human, and I did just that. -- Mr. Clean

Mr. Oblivious -- After two losses in a row to me, you certainly should feel
oblivious. -- White Witch

FONZ = Forlorn Oafs Nitpicking Zits

Flummax -- What do you mean I'm not from here?  Where's here? -- Clark Kent

Err Mutt -- Thank you for marking all the phone booths for me.  (There surely are
fewer and fewer around and they are hard to find.)  With the blacklight adjustment to
my exray vision, all those spots just glare out at me night or day.  So, thanks! --
Clark Kent
P.S.  Have you noticed the intense odor around all the phone booths?  I wonder what's
with that?

Technogeek -- You were loopy and DIDN'T write adds for Aradi?  Wow!  You should have
penned all your spotlights while you were at it. -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

Soulie woley ubanger oompah!  Razzleronious! -- The Creepster

All -- <Looks around>  Yesss.  There is something familiar about this place.  I
remember something about...a bird?  An unlucky number?  A...scrod?!  My memories must
still be damaged.  No matter.  It is as good a place as any.... -- Haunt

Flummax -- I'm not even sure what your name means, but I'm glad I won. -- Pauline

Lassie -- Bark!  Woof woof! -- Hendrick

Tom Sawyer -- Hmmm, nicely done I suppose. -- Oswald

Boy George -- Me wins! -- Bai

Mr. Clean -- (sneezing juicily)  Euwh!  That smells awful!  And you humans think us
dogs like bad smells, your noses are DEAD.  You KILLED them with your awful
chemicals. -- The Err Mutt
P.S.  I should probably have buried you in the sand, to maybe scrub some of that
smell off.
P.P.S.  What you need to do is go find a good alley and roll in something.

Yellow Jacket -- Now you've got doghairs all over that jacket.  Good!  It's part of
my job. -- Bully Boy
P.S.  That's why I'm a black-and-white dog.  My hairs will show on ANYTHING.  Well,
except some of those tweed things that are kind of like actually WEARING a dog, but
that's okay.

Pauline -- Oh, cool!  Another she-dog!  (sniff, snork, sniff-sniff)  (yelp)  Um...
wrong time, I guess.  Maybe later. -- Flummax

Hendrick -- I smell it now.  You're an "underdog" because you're so low-bred.  No
Good Dog would treat me like that. -- Lassie
P.S.  Probably one of those horrid, uncanine "lapdogs."

Red Barchetta -- Ha!  People thought they could TRICK me with one of those wind-up
things that hurts your teeth and tastes bad, but I am the Little Big Dog, I am not
fooled! -- Little Big Dog the Victorious

Clark Kent -- What?  (hurrying down the alley)  Did I miss that Phone Booth?  Did the
marking wear off?  I'll have to mark fix this! -- The Err Mutt

Franz -- (mournful look)  Perhaps you'd like this Really Ripe Bone?  It's an
especially good one. -- Lassie

Oswald -- Yes. -- Little Big Dog

Our congratulations to Macs. -- Spot and the Red Dog Gang

Lord Protector Macs -- I have searched everywhere, well, many places, and I have been
unable to locate Mervin Dree's list of Things to Give Graduating Gladiators.  So I
will merely give you a salute and a Fare Well. -- Arenamaster Harkon
P.S.  Gifts aren't in my job description anyway.
