Investigators have determined that the devastating waves of last month were caused by
the resubmergence of Krael and are unlikely to be repeated in the foreseeable future.
Sources close to the High Thane report that these waves have been labeled a "natural
disaster," as though they were the result of a storm, and that while some relief is
available in cases of genuine need, the Thane will not reimburse merchants who have
lost ships and cargoes.  "We aren't made of money," Dame Mingia, assistant to the
High Thane, said.

High Priest Trenilbloie urgently advises anyone who picked up an unidentified trove
of flotsam after the waves of last month to bring said flotsam to the Temple of Ankor
at once.  It is believed that at least some of these items may have subtly disastrous
effects on those who spend time in their company.  Identifiable flotsam should also
be brought to the temple to be checked, in case the Enemy has taken to subtleties
within subtleties.

Will whoever took the lantern from the sign for the Glass Eye Tavern please return
it?  No questions will be asked if the lantern is returned undamaged.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon AMEN-TEI, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for MAC KINLEY, who pummelled 
GALATIANS HAMMER, to pocket 17 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 10 points to MAC KINLEY.  (Discrete enough, 
GALATIANS HAMMER?) A certain someone saw ELEPHANT DUNG at The Swinging Aardvark with 
the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  
What can be a greater victory?  VALNAKAUR has taken his place as the top, as 
AMEN-TEI's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are AMEN-TEI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BIBLICAL HAMMERZ, 
alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, OXYMORONS 
scurried away from BIBLICAL HAMMERZ.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and GALATIANS HAMMER is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
BIBLICAL HAMMERZ proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in AMEN-TEI is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for AMEN-TEI?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Quiet Storm -- I don't know about it being a self-contradiction, but it's bound to be
subtle, isn't it?  Intriguing concept, anyway. -- Cruzia Gardett

Elephant Dung -- Gods, to think that we might have you around for five months yet! --
Valnakaur

Dimaggio -- Ouch!  You certainly jolted me with that first one.  And the one that
followed, and the several after that.  I may never be the same again. -- M.T. Lane

Maria -- It's a low and dirty trick to call yourself Maria and then come out and
you're a mean, hairy dwarf!  Talk about "stunned with surprise," you manage it too
well.  Have you considered a sex-change operation? -- Hyram Carter
P.S.  But I can see why they exiled you.

you?  A LOT taller than you?  Better drink your milk, you need to grow. -- Yalo
