                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JURINE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see RIDDLEBOX win a fight and gain 41 points, terribly.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, JURINE may be getting bland, as FIFINE GILLY stays top dog in the 
city.  The Welcome Wench, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From JURINE's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JURINE's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in JURINE to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide 
Clemens

Jurine -- We are going to be taking a short break, as we are now prepared for the
Initiates class of the winter FtF.  We can't make any promises, but we hope to return
in the new year. -- Hobo Stew and Hostess Cupcake

Again, the Dark Arena gets the catered meals!  Unfair!

Bonesnap -- It is true that the Middle Way is not for everyone.  It requires precise
balance and the most acute judgment.  But other paths are worthy, also, if they get
you where you need to go. -- Fifine Gilly

And four-one for us today, with four wins over standbys, and not the easy ones,
either!  And Celine made a fool of herself over the Hobo Stew.  She'll get fat if she
doesn't watch out. -- Fifine Gilly
