                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VALAMANTIS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  MAX WEBER has lost to MOOSEHEAD, falling 12 
points, while helping make OUT OF CONTROL a 0-3-0 turn.  And not without some honor, 
RED HOOK now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of VALAMANTIS.  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Drunkard's 
Guild?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  OUT OF CONTROL has cause to stand tall, as 
they were VALAMANTIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding OUT OF CONTROL more than any other team we find DISASTERS.  
VALAMANTIS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  In a brave 
attempt, CARELESS BEAR from DARKSIDEOFTVLAND 3 challenged up 18 points to fight 
GILFMET IVERS from the MIDDLE WAY 10 stable.  CARELESS BEAR perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he subdued GILFMET IVERS and ended up with 56 recognition points. 
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, VALAMANTIS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VALAMANTIS and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen 
sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Inferno -- You just burn me up! -- Gilbern Juss
P.S.  I couldn't resist that obvious pun.
P.P.S.  But why are you here, gladiating, when you should be managing other
gladiators in Primus?

Max Weber -- Though you defeated me, the flowers thrown onto the sands were for ME.
The fans don't like you. -- Gilfmet Ivers
P.S.  Not that I have much use for a bunch of trampled flowers.

B.F. Skinner -- You're worse than that Pavlov dude.  I *will* get you. -- Kolbert
Moon

Tremor -- You make people uneasy, so they were naturally pleased to see me defeat
you. -- Imrom Llews
P.S.  Stability, that's the thing.

Ivan Pavlov -- Ah, I wondered if that would work, and it DID.  I just popped your
stupid little bell over your head and started beating on it, and you reacted as
programmed.  Good show. -- Mardin Oklos
