                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JURINE games.  BENIRI B'RAN caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was 
awarded 16 points in recognition.  Not for nothing has COOL CAT in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in JURINE seem to feel that 
they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JURINE "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  TAIL IN THE AIR, may you forever slay thy enemies 
with impunity as you did GEORGE DUBYA.  Are there none left in DEATH BY STUPIDITY who 
hold honor as a virtue?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the 
arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in JURINE as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Cool Cat -- You have a bad effect on my fingers.  I find it difficult, for some
unknown reason (unless it's ailurophobia) to type coherently.  I had to get someone
else to do a spell-check on this. -- Keta

Tail in the Air -- Gods, are you the stuck-up dude, or what?  I'd like to bring a
pack of dogs into this arena. -- Delores

Oh, Fratsfa Slave.  Pish. -- Ms. S.B. Anthony

And to the Convicted Thief, tush. -- Matteo
P.S.  As in "pish-tush."
P.P.S.  Don't ask me what it means, I have no idea.  And I probably wouldn't tell you
if I did.

If the Mordant Deserter is an example of the competition here, I'm a shew-in. --
Beniri B'ran

Ed. -- I don't think they're called concubines if they're men.  I think they're boy-
toys. -- Delores

     Ah, that's all right then.  These fine distinctions sometime escape me. -- Ed.

Ed. -- Well, the "paper bag" option was mentioned, you know, "Paper or plastic?"  But
I put my ectoplasmic foot down on that one. -- Freddie

     Did you put your foot on the paper bag or the plastic one? -- Ed., just curious

Battle Royal 4
     The Battle Royal arena contests are one of the purest tests of manager skill
available. The rules are simple.  The scoring is simple.  The updates are live.  If
you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.
     Visit http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir/br4 for more information.

8 December 2004
     The Turf War IV Grand Contest will commence on Turn 221 (approx. February 22,

    exceptions will be made.

    of the alliance he has claimed for;

    checking this and if caught...you'll be disqualified and no refund);
4.  The contest will end on Turn 233 (12 turns!).  Winners will be announced on Turn
    234 and prizes sent to winning alliance between Turn 233 and 234.
5.  No declarations will be acknowledged after Turn 231.
