                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of AMEN-TEI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at 
EXCLAMATION! left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by BRAIN 
BOYZ.  Good show!  Practice pays for ACORN, who pummelled FAMILY TAXI, to pocket 19 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 12 points to ACORN.  (Discrete enough, FAMILY TAXI?) CEREBRUM successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by TOMAS KATT of WAYFARERS.  Does AMEN-TEI have no 
one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of EXCLAMATION! should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of NUTS!, so did that sorry team shy from EXCLAMATION! 
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and ALBERT HALL is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't WAYFARERS proud!  My love of complete Spyreports dictates 
that I note the mismatched fight, SPIFFY and ALBERT HALL.  Are EXCLAMATION! unwilling 
to engage in a fair fight?  I thought SPIFFY showed great skill and promise when it 
won victory over ALBERT HALL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  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

Two-three, and I don't know what Mossy was thinking.  Getting my tires rotated is
perfectly respectable.  If I'd had my oil changed, it might have been different.  All
those mechanics peering into my intimate places.  Look at Mossy, losing to a naked
brain!  Now, that's scandalous.  Brains shouldn't be exposed like that, and Mossy
shouldn't be consorting with one and giving tacit approval. -- Family Taxi

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
