                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JURINE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, VINDA YARRO fought GIRL SCOUT COOKIE and gained 9 points and 
contributed to MIDDLE WAY 16's 3-2-0.  CHUCK ENDERN has lost to YODA, falling 5 
points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 16 a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, HORSE D'OEUVRE has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And 
all eyes were on ARKAN BARNES this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
JURINE has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that JURINE has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JURINE and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JURINE again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Horse D'Oeuvre -- Definitely a diet clinic.  And you could have races on the side. --
Arkan Barnes

Graham Cracker -- I didn't know Shews ate graham crackers!  Really into the whole-
wheat thing, eh? -- Vinda Yarro
P.S.  I like 'em with frosting, but, of course, SOME people, such as my sister, who
is very weird, like them with marshmallows and chocolate.  Marshmallows can mess up
anything.

Ventress -- Why? -- Fifine Gilly
P.S.  I mean, why do YOU want to do that?  Let the men be the ventners.

Zensu Lasagna -- Hey, I was hungry! -- Chuck Endern
P.S.  I'm part Shewish myself.

And a silly Mordant Deserter.  All Mordant Deserters are silly.  If they weren't,
they would have figured out how to conceal their origins and they'd be ordinary
Jurinian citizens. -- Jenni Korreg
