                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARADI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see WONDERWORKS win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WALL OF FUR 
beat SERGEANT 4 and SERGEANT 4 lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT DAISY DAWG is still the 
Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ARADI? 
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  WALL OF 
FUR was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted 
or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARADI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ARADI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ARADI.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back 
of this place-- Snide Clemens

Tcha!  Three gladiators ranked higher than me and the next one below all went
inactive, and I took the title because of that.  How provoking!  And the rest of the
pack did not do well enough to bark about, either. -- Daisy Dawg

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
