     "I don't see why WE have to do all this work," Joevina Saril said.  She thrust
another saucepan into the crate, following it with a selection of cooking tools:
spatulas, ladles, a strainer, knives.
     Merro Dosh pulled the tools back out and began wrapping them in towels and cloth
napkins.  "Leave 'em loose and they'll drive us nuts with their rattle," he pointed
out.  "And why shouldn't we help out a teammate?  Damoreth Stenn may've graduated a
long time ago, but I remember him.  He'd do it for us.  And when he gets his hunting-
and-fishing lodge opened, we can go up the coast to take a rest there when we need
to.  Seems like a good deal to me."
     Joevina shook her head.  "Wind Cove House?  Not me.  I've heard of it, and not
much that's good.  It's haunted.  Why do you think it was available for a Lord
Protector?"
     Merro Dosh brightened.  "Haunted?  Sounds good.  Ghosts, monsters...or smugglers
trying to keep people off, do you think?"
     "What difference does it make?  It's a bad place.  He won't get many guests
there."
     "I heard he plans to put in a 'golf course' and invite other gladiators from the
Isle."

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of DAL 
SHANG brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see OUTLAW win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JOEVINA 
SARIL beat TENDERIZED DUCK and TENDERIZED DUCK lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAL SHANG may be getting bland, as 
STEELHORSE stays top dog in the city.  The Blazing Unicorn, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DAL SHANG's trash 
dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the DAL SHANG arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

answer. -- Killian ten Vir

Mim Yellowhair -- Ma'am, I do like a bold and well-upholstered woman!  Though I'll
admit I've never seen any other blonde orcs than you.  Once you get out of the
Infirmary, I'd be pleased to take you to dinner.  Just say the word. -- Merro Dosh
P.S.  Don't mind Dolla the Elephant, she's a pussycat really.

Korka the Hairy -- Why didn't the Commission call you a dwarf?  You've got a beard
and a nasty temper, after all. -- Lorin ten Koro

Better Duck -- Well, I DID, and then I got you with the riposte.  Or something like
that.  Be careful what advice you give, someone might be listening!  No, seriously, I
can see that, for a golem, you're a FINE figure of a duck. -- Joevina Saril
