                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JURINE, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SHEWISH BUFFET had cause to celebrate, after HOBO 
STEW got 13 points by beating FRATSFA SLAVE.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster 
were disappointed by BONESNAP, of FEAR FACTORY, who despite a 12-10-2 couldn't 
overcome JURINE's Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in SHEWISH BUFFET are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, FEAR FACTORY scurried away from SHEWISH 
BUFFET.  Oh, the shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Like a 
mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JURINE farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Stew

Cloud Stalker -- We locked up the least popular spots pretty well. -- Hostess Cupcake

Three-two is not bad, for us, but good gods!  How did I get stuck with ALL the
arena's PR work?  The public appearances, the banquets, the endorsements, the
speaking circuit--when am I going to PRACTICE? -- Fifine Gilly
P.S.  I was hoping for a last pan of Zensu Lasagna, but apparently those PIGS in the
Dark Arena ate it all.  Oh, well.

The Hobo Stew was good. -- Celine Dee

                                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!"
